Eric Ebron

Detroit Lions

Ebron Could Use Some Luck


Colts signed TE Eric Ebron, formerly of the Lions, to a two-year contract. Coach Frank Reich called Ebron an "elite tight end."

The last time we saw Andrew Luck healthy (2016), the Colts used 2+ TE sets at the 3rd-highest rate in the NFL and had the 6th-highest target share to TEs.

Carlos Hyde

San Francisco 49ers

Hyde and Seek


Browns agreed to terms with RB Carlos Hyde, formerly of the 49ers, on a three-year, $15 million contract.

Obtaining Hyde has several trickle-down effects; first it replaces Crowell who signed with the Jets, it probably diminishes Duke Johnson’s value a bit. Hyde is a better all-around back than Crowell was and will certainly take over the goal-line work seeing that he’s got 20+ pounds on Duke. It also reduces the likelihood that Cleveland takes Saquon Barkley with the 4th pick in the draft. They will most likely look to draft a defensive player (Chubb) or trade down again.

Jerick McKinnon

Minnesota Vikings

McKinnon Goes West For Gold-Rush


49ers agreed to terms with RB Jerick McKinnon, formerly of the Vikings, on a four-year, $30 million contract.

McKinnon averaged a ho-hum 3.8 yards a carry for the Vikings and scored three rushing touchdowns. By contrast, San Francisco's former lead runner, Carlos Hyde, averaged 3.9 yards an attempt in 2017 and had eight rushing touchdowns.

It appears as though Shanahan is enamored with McKinnon's athletic metrics, but I'm not so sure he was "pounding the table" to get him. This move could push the Niner's to cut Joe Williams.

Mike Wallace

Baltimore Ravens

Eagles Keep Improving


Eagles signed WR Mike Wallace to a one-year contract.
Mike Wallace can still move posting a top five max speed among wide receivers last season. He will fill the void left by Torrey Smith as a speed vertical threat.

Terrelle Pryor

Washington Redskins

Jets Searching For Weapons


Jets agreed to terms with WR Terrelle Pryor, formerly of Washington and Cleveland.

Second year in a row on a new team doesn’t really help Pryor's cause, but I like the idea of him on the field with Teddy Bridgewater at some point. I would imagine, with some creativity, the Jets could really design some innovative gadget plays.
The Jets receiving corps really looks like a bunch of question marks at this point though, no telling what the week-to-week outcome will be with these guys.
Jermaine Kearse: 65 catches, 810 yards, 5 touchdowns (2017)
Robby Anderson: 63 catches, 941 yards, 7 touchdowns (2017)
Quincy Enunwa: 58 catches, 857 yards, 4 touchdowns (2016)
Terrelle Pryor: 77 catches, 1007 yards, 4 touchdowns (2016)

Carlos Henderson

Denver Broncos

Sleeper Watch


Broncos coach Vance Joseph said the team is "counting on" Carlos Henderson making an impact in 2018.

If you are paying attention to Staggs projections there is plenty of opportunity for Henderson to step into a solid number of targets in the slot. Henderson was hindered by injury and awful QB play last year. Being drafted in the 18th round or later in best-ball leagues, Henderson is the late round flyer that should be on your radar.

Ben Watson

Baltimore Ravens

Watson Returns To Big Easy


Saints signed TE Ben Watson, formerly of the Ravens, to a one-year contract.

Watson had 74 catches on 110 targets for 825 yards and 6 TD’s when he was with the Saints in 2015. After missing 2016 he had a pretty good year with Baltimore last year despite an anemic offense, with 61 catches on 79 targets for 522 yards and 4 TD’s. He’s not a bad late round flyer TE. He’s basically free right now, but I expect by the time the season starts he’ll be being drafted within the top 20 at the position.

Jeff Janis

Green Bay Packers

Janis Truthers Challenged


Browns officially signed former Packers’ WR Jeff Janis.
The combine superstar never amounted to anything in Green Bay, I highly doubt Cleveland is the place for him to finally break-out.

Thomas Rawls

Seattle Seahawks

Jets Sign Rawls


Rawls had five RB1 games in 2015, one in 2016, and has been a disappointment since. He’s not worth your time in fantasy, but he could cause enough disruption in the Jets backfield to cut any upside we might have hoped for from Isaiah Crowell.

Allen Robinson

Jacksonville Jaguars

Coo coo ca choo Mr. Robinson


Bears signed WR Allen Robinson, formerly of the Jaguars, to a three-year, $42 million contract.

This is a great move for Robinson and Chicago. Nagy’s offense and the young QB, Trubiski, should benefit Robinson at least as much as Bortles did, and Chicago gets the top WR in free agency.
Everyone on the team will be in a new scheme so there will be an adjustment, but as they start to gel we should see a big second half. Robinson’s recovery from a torn ACL doesn’t scare me away from drafting him in the late third/early fourth, his current MFL10 ADP is 43 overall while his Draft app ADP is 59.9. I expect Robinson to be somewhere in the range of 75 receptions, for 1100 yards and 8 TD’s.

Sammy Watkins

Los Angeles Rams

KC Building Strong Air Attack


Chiefs signed Sammy Watkins, formerly of the Rams, to a three-year, $48 million contract.

I’m a big Sammy truther so getting him in the 5th or 6th round is a pure power move. His current Draft app ADP of 87.1 is an absolute steal, his MFL10 ADP of 69.5 is still a great value in my opinion. There are quite a few options for high targets in KC so I don’t expect him to see the 128 targets he saw his rookie year, but he should definitely see more than the 70 he saw last year. He’ll have an entire offseason to work with the near-rookie QB, and at age 25 he should have enough burst left to have a 70 catch, 1050 yd, 8TD line. For his career he has 16 receptions on 30 targets for 12 TD’s in the Red Zone, and 9 receptions on 13 targets, for 8 TD’s inside the opponents 10. He should be the exact WR the Chiefs need to get over the hump. As a team the Chiefs were 34/75 for 13 TD’s in the Red-Zone last year and 12/24 for 10 TD inside the 10.

Kirk Cousins

Washington Redskins

Vikings Like That


Kirk Cousins plans to sign a three-year, fully-guaranteed contract from the Minnesota Vikings on Thursday. The deal is believed to be for around $86 million, and reports are it will be fully-guaranteed, a landmark for an NFL free agent.

Should be a lateral move for Kirk as far as fantasy, better WR’s, but fewer passes thrown in this offense. A healthy Dalvin Cook should be able to run out the clock if they are up in the second half of games and take the ball out of Cousins hands near the end zone. It should also help the overall efficiency of the offense so all in all it increases his floor, but cuts any garbage-time production we’ve seen with Washington. Kyle Rudolph becomes a big benefactor here, Cousins loves his TE, especially near the end-zone.

Case Keenum

Minnesota Vikings

Denver Makes Case


Broncos signed QB Case Keenum, formerly of the Vikings, to a two-year, $36 million contract.

Well, I was hoping for more than a bridge QB for my favorite WR (D. Thomas), but this is a definite upgrade from the three stooges Denver put behind center last year.

LeGarrette Blount

Philadelphia Eagles

Detroit Sparks Up Blount


The Lions signed free agent RB LeGarrette Blount to a 1-year deal worth $4.5M. He’s back with Matt Patricia, as the New England ties are strong.

The Lions have needed a true goal-line/power-back for years. I expect Blount to get between 150-200 touches and all the short-yardage carries. Detroit’s offense doesn’t really fit what Blount brings to the table, but I expect Patricia will have some influence over how the offense will operate from here-on-out.

Cleveland Browns

Money Ball: The Sequel


Hate to start out the offseason with the Cleveland Browns, but they are makin’ moves!
Browns acquired: Tyrod Taylor, Jarvis Landry, Damarious Randall
Browns gave up: 2018 3rd-round pick (No. 65), 2018 4th-round pick, 2019 7th-round pick, DeShone Kizer

Building with experienced quality performers that have something to prove, by selling inconsequential draft picks is exactly what Sashi Brown was building up for. It’s a shame he won’t be around to reap the rewards, but these are quality moves for a win-now mentality.

Tyrod Taylor

Buffalo Bills

Hue Looks To TyGoat


Browns left tackle Joe Thomas, who's pondering his future, is a fan of Tyrod Taylor and has said so on the ThomaHawk Show podcast.

Tyrod is just one season removed (2016) from being the QB11 in average fantasy ppg, including seven 20+ point weeks and six 15+ point weeks. Given the current talent on the O-line and skill position weapons he could improve on those numbers. He has the potential to be this year’s Alex Smith, definitely heading my late-round (12+) QB picks now.

Deshone Kizer

Cleveland Browns

Packers Get In On The Fun


The Packers have traded for QB DeShone Kizer from the Browns to Green Bay.

This is the best possible scenario for Kizer, who was thrown into the fire last season. Getting the chance to develop and learn behind the best in the business is the best chance he has for longevity.

Torrey Smith

Philadelphia Eagles

On The Move Again


The Eagles trade WR Torrey Smith to the Panthers for CB Daryl Worley. Torrey Smith could fill the old Ted Ginn role which makes this fairly interesting. Stagg Party says it’s more of a boost for Cam than Torrey himself.

This is an absolute perfect fit, someone who isn’t going to demand the ball, but can take the top off a defense while McCaffrey, Olsen, and Cam work underneath. Torrey is looking like a great late-round flyer.

DeMarco Murray

Tennessee Titans

Henry Hype Train Has Clear Track


DeMarco Murray was released by the Titans.
No surprise here, expect Derick Henry to be a lead back with 250+ touches, but they will bring in someone that will play the third-down, pass-catching role out of the backfield. I wouldn’t be surprised if they sign someone like Jerick McKinnon or Rex Burkhead, or even Darren Sproles or Charles Sims. There are also plenty of options in the NFL draft, Henry won’t be a true “Bell Cow.”

Marquise Goodwin

San Francisco 49ers

The Name Says It All


Marquise Goodwin and the 49ers have agreed to a 3yr extension worth $20.3M & 10M guaranteed.

Shanahan has found his big-play threat at a reasonable price. Goodwin caught 56 balls for 962 yards last season, but only had two TD’s. None of his six longest plays (33+ yards) were from Garoppollo so it leads me to believe they will still be looking for a top of the line WR, even with Garcon coming back from injury.

START 'EM

 

 

QUARTERBACKS

 

 

Robert Griffin III - Pyro Character

Robert Griffin III (vs. Car) – So the very week I proclaim my unwavering faith in Mr. Griffin III, the guy goes out and puts up his biggest fantasy stinker of the year. Go figure. It happens to the best of ‘em though, so I’m not too worried about it. This Sunday he’ll face off against a Carolina Panthers team that has actually been pretty good against QBs this season, but it’s really only because teams keep trying to run all over them. In fact, the Panthers D has allowed the second-highest passing percentage in the league right now at a whopping 68.4 percent! Because of their mediocre rush D, RGIII will gain a good 70-80 yards on the ground, but I still expect him to throw for around 250 yards as well so when you add all that to the three combined TDs he’ll have, you’re looking at a top-of-the-line fantasy day my friends.

 

Matthew Stafford - Pyro Character

Matthew Stafford (at Jax) They don’t call this guy “Second-Half Staff” for nothing! Against a Seattle defense he had no business dominating last week, Matthew Stafford proceeded to throw for 352 yards and three touchdowns while also running in a fourth TD for good measure. Hey, he didn’t throw for 5,000 yards last season because he was lucky! However, it’s no coincidence that his tide suddenly turned, either, as it’s plainly obvious how much Stafford and the Lions offense needed Titus Young to get more involved. This week, the Lions visit a Jaguars team that surprisingly kept Aaron Rodgers at bay last weekend—though I don’t believe they’ll do the same against Stafford. As a matter of fact, now that Matty has a taste of what it’s like to be elite again, I’m kind of expecting an explosion here.

 

Michael Vick - Pyro Character

Michael Vick (at NO, Monday night) – This is it for Michael Dwayne Vick. Either he puts together a good game against a league-worst Saints defense this Monday night, or he likely loses his starting job to a rookie. It’s that simple. Does he have enough magic left in the tank to pull it off? I believe he does, though that doesn’t necessarily mean that the Eagles will win the game. What it DOES mean, however, is that you should be starting him on your fantasy team this week as the Saints defense has allowed the most fantasy points per game to opposing QBs this season. Again, it’s as simple as that.

 

Cam Newton - Pyro Character

Cam Newton (at Was) Is Cam Newton back? The Chicago Bears aren’t in the habit of allowing opposing QBs to look good throwing for 300 yards against them, but that’s exactly what Newton did this past Sunday. This week he’ll be looking at a Redskins defense that has allowed the fourth-most fantasy points to quarterbacks this season along with the most passing touchdowns in the league. That doesn’t necessarily mean Newton will prosper, as the Panthers will likely be without their WR2, Brandon LaFell, this weekend, but I still expect Cam to shine. Whatever happens, this is certainly one of the best games to watch in Week 9 with the 2011 rookie of the year (Newton) going up against the possible 2012 rookie of the year (RGIII). If anything, it will be fun to see which QB comes out on top.

 

 

Others with QB1 Potential:

 

Andrew Luck (vs. Mia)

 

Ben Roethlisberger (at NYG)

 

Matt Schaub (vs. Buf)

 

Carson Palmer (vs. TB)

 

 

SLEEPERS


Jay Cutler (at Ten)

Ryan Tannehill (at Ind)

Russell Wilson (vs. Min)

 

 

RUNNING BACKS

 

 

Marshawn Lynch - Pyro Character

Marshawn Lynch (vs. Min) – Lynch has four 100-yard games on the season yet surprisingly, only one of them came at home. I mention this because last year he had six 100-yard games with only one of them coming on the road. Basically, Marshawn is due for another home 100-yarder; and its coming this week. The Vikings didn’t allow a single RB to put up double-digit fantasy points against them through the first five weeks of the season. However, Minnesota has allowed one in each of their last three games with all of them putting up at least one rushing touchdown and the last two going up over 100 yards as well. Lynch should be fed like crazy in this game which almost assuredly means RB1 fantasy numbers.

 

Willis McGahee - Pyro Character

Willis McGahee (at Cin) I think McGahee kind of likes this Peyton Manning-led offensive system. He’s currently ninth in the league in fantasy points per game, tenth in rushing yards and tied for eighth in rushing TDs, so what’s not to like. Some games have been better than others, but I fully expect this to be one of his better ones going up against a Cincinnati defense that has allowed the fifth-most fantasy points per game and second-most rushing touchdowns in the league. Willis put up 101 yards and a TD against the Bengals last season, so with the Denver offense clicking the way it has been lately, there’s no reason not to expect the same this time around.

 

Alfred Morris - Pyro Character

Alfred Morris (vs. Car) – Alfred Morris has put up double-digit fantasy points in six of the Redskins eight games this season and I have no doubt that he’ll make it a seventh this week. The kid also has five rushing TDs, which is tied for second in the league behind Arian Foster. Basically, The Butler is the real deal, folks, and there doesn’t seem to be a need to worry about him being in a Shanahan offense either.  This weekend he’ll be up against a Panthers rush D that was one of the worst in the league for a while there, but have somehow turned it around and done pretty well in their last few games. That being said, their focus will be mainly on Robert Griffin III this Sunday, so there should be plenty of open holes for Morris to barrel through and rack up the rushing yards.

 

Matt Forte - Pyro Character

Matt Forte (at Ten) Tennessee’s main problem with opposing running backs isn’t so much in defending the rush, but more so against multi-dimensional RBs that can do just as much damage through the air as they can on the ground. In fact, the Titans D has allowed the most receiving yards, most receiving touchdowns and second-most receptions to running backs this season. Basically, the things that the Titans are the worst at are the same things that Matt Forte happens to be best at. Because the Tennessee offense can actually be pretty lethal at times, the Bears will want to control the clock as well, so look for Forte to get a healthy amount of work this weekend en route to a low-end RB1 fantasy day. In PPR leagues, go ahead and change that “low-end” designation to “high-end”.

 

Trent Richardson - Pyro Character

Trent Richardson (vs. Bal) It turns out the scare fantasy owners had when Richardson exited the Indy game two weeks ago after re-injuring his ribs was really nothing at all. Obviously he was just fine after watching him run for 122 yards and a touchdown against a Chargers defense last week that hadn’t allowed a 100-yard rusher since Week 12 of last season. This Sunday, he takes on a decimated Baltimore D for the second time this season. Back in Week 4, Trent put up 104 total yards and a touchdown against them but that was WITH all of their defensive studs still healthy, so I’m expecting a much better turn-out this time around. There are a lot of classic matchups this weekend and I have no doubt that this one between Trent and Ray Rice will become one of the best over the next few years.

 

 

Others with RB1 Potential:

 

Reggie Bush (at Ind)

 

Darren McFadden (vs. TB)

 

Doug Martin (at Oak)

 

 

SLEEPERS


DeMarco Murray (at Atl, Sunday night) – IF ACTIVE

Jonathan Dwyer (at NYG)

Fred Jackson (at Hou)

Jonathan Stewart (at Was)

Daniel Thomas (at Ind)

 

 

WIDE RECEIVERS

 

 

Denarius Moore - Pyro Character

Denarius Moore (vs. TB) Yes, Denarius Moore is sitting in my top-five wide receivers for the week. I mean, have you seen how much Carson Palmer loves him?!?! The kid has been targeted no less than eight times in his six games played this season and has now caught a touchdown in his last three straight. The kid is a weekly highlight reel to watch and to be honest; it wouldn’t shock me to hear Palmer say that he throws him the ball simply to see what the kid will do next. Moore wouldn’t make it this high in my rankings simply on aesthetics, obviously, so there must be some other reason. Well, there is. The Tampa Bay Buccaneers pass defense was pretty bad to begin with, but in this past week, not only have they traded their best, yet troubled cornerback Aqib Talib to the Patriots, but they also have their second-best CB, Eric Wright, dealing with some Achilles soreness and as a possible four-game suspension swirling around in his mind as well. Basically, the fantasy points are ripe for the pickin’ this week.

 

Julio Jones - Pyro Character

Julio Jones (vs. Dal, Sunday night) – The Dallas Cowboys secondary, particularly their cornerbacks, have been awesome at defending the pass this season. However, if they’ve had any sort of pinpointed trouble thus far, it’s been against taller/bigger receivers who can stretch the field. Julio Jones happens to be one of the best in the game in that exact problem-area for the ‘Boys. The Atlanta offense has quickly become one of the best in the game and can strike at any time with their new high-tempo offense, part of which is due to the big-play threat of Mr. Julio Jones. Considering how often Dallas turns the ball over and how good the Falcons are at taking it away, I can easily see a good five to seven red-zone drives in which Jones will have a chance to use his size for a TD. He may not put up awesome yardage in the end, but at least one touchdown should be forthcoming.

 

Randall Cobb - Pyro Character

Randall Cobb (vs. Ari) This kid is really something else, isn’t he. He’s pretty much the same type of player as Percy Harvin at this point, though he might actually have better juke moves than Percy though doesn’t NEARLY have the same type of size and power. With Jordy Nelson unlikely to suit up this Sunday, Cobb has to be considered the top target for Aaron Rodgers which can’t possibly translate to a ranking outside of the top-ten. Arizona hasn’t been bad against the pass this season, but their pass-rush has been pretty awesome as they’re currently tied for first in the league (WITH GREEN BAY) with 26 sacks on the season. I mention this because it looks like Rodgers will be under pressure all game and if so, he might have to get rid of the ball quickly. With Cobb being as dynamic as he is and more of an underneath guy than anything else, I have no doubt he’ll see the most targets of the Packers receivers in this game and with the ball in his hands, the kid is flat-out lethal.

 

Andre Johnson - Pyro Character

Andre Johnson (vs. Buf) – Andre Johnson has one 100-yard game and two touchdowns through seven games this season and caught three or fewer passes in four of them. By now, we all know that this isn’t the same Andre Johnson as in years past, but I have no doubt he still has some big games left in him. This week against the Buffalo Bills is going to be one of them. Strange as it sounds, ‘Dre is actually being targeted FAR more at home than he is on the road (9.5 to 4.7) and has obviously put up way better stats at home because of it. The Bills defense is bad enough against the run that the Texans would probably never need to pass the ball, but that’s exactly when they WILL pass the ball because it’s the direction the Bills would least expect them to go. Do I expect one of those insane 11-193-2 stat-lines Johnson used to put up? No, but he’ll definitely have himself a quiet low-end WR1 day while Arian Foster steals the show.

 

Steve Smith - Pyro Character

Steve Smith (at Was) – It’s been awhile since Stevie Fists found his way into my top-ten, but if there was any week of the season it would be for the old-timer, this would be it. Smitty showed last week against the Chicago Bears that he can still hang with the big fantasy boys when he caught seven passes for 118 yards against arguably the best defense in the league. Of course, I can’t go without mentioning his colossal F-up when he slipped on an out-route and allowed CB Tim Jennings to take a pick-six for the lead in the fourth quarter, but he still had an outstanding game otherwise. This week the Panthers travel to Washington where Smith will be aiming for his FIRST touchdown of the season against possibly the worst pass defense in the league. Last year against them he put up 143 yards on seven catches, but didn’t come away with a TD. This year I can see the touchdown happening, but maybe only around 100 yards as he might be double-covered from time to time with Brandon LaFell likely out due to a concussion.
