Leonard Fournette

Jacksonville Jaguars

Rookie Wall?


Fournette came off of essentially 20 days of resting and rehabbing the injured ankle suffered in the fourth quarter of Jacksonville’s October 15th loss to the Rams, when he suited up last week against the L.A. Chargers. Last week, he carried 17 times for 33 yards. According to Florida Football Insiders, Leonard Fournette's ankle is "still not right," and he could be limited if he plays this week against the Browns.

I’ve heard a few people recognize that Cleveland’s run defense has been underrated this year. They started out pretty strong, but they have been fading lately, especially when it comes to the pass-catching backs over the past five games. Yeldon or Ivory could be that sneaky flex you’re looking for.

Jacksonville Jaguars

Ground and Pound


According to Forecast.io, it's expected to be 39° F and with a 18% chance of snow and 20 MPH wind in Cleveland at 1:00 PM ET.

This is something to watch Sunday morning, especially if you were high on the Jacksonville passing game facing Cleveland this weekend. The snow doesn’t matter, but the wind could eliminate any deep balls. If you’re looking for a Dede or K. Cole explosion, like I have been, I think we’re going to have to wait at least one more week. Marquis Lee should be fine, he’ll still get his targets. The running game should benefit, but Fournette is questionable with an ankle.

Jay Ajayi

Philadelphia Eagles

Ajayi Slated for More Work in Week 11


Coaches have come out and said there is a concentrated effort to increase Ajayi's workload.

Fantasy Goo: Certainly Corey Clement impressed in their last game, Week 9 against Denver. However, he won't sustain the pace of 3TDs on just 13 touches. I do like both players in GPP, I would certainly save Clement for the larger tournaments where you take on more risk in order to differentiate yourself from the field. Still, Ajayi has had a bye week and a game to get familiar with his new digs. Each game from now on, should highlight his comfort and growth in the system.

Devonta Freeman

Atlanta Falcons

Coleman to Increase Workload Sans Freeman


Devonta Freeman is in concussion protocol. That leaves Tevin 'Betchya Bottom Dollar" Coleman to pick up extra duties.

Fantasy Goo: Freeman was taken out very early on in last week's game. Because of this, Coleman seized the reins with command. He finished as Draft Kings 10th best RB of the week. Their Week 11 matchup with the Seahawks could easily turn into a high schoring affair as Seattle is without starters Richard Sherman, Kam Chancellor, and Jarran Reed. What Seattle puts on the field will not resemble what we are accustomed to. Coleman should seize thee opportunity.

Buffalo Bills

Bills Getting Gashed


In the last 3 weeks, the Buffalo Bills have given up 8 TDS. There is not a team in the league that has given up more than 8 rushing TDS ALL SEASON!

Fantasy Goo: There is trepidation about Gordon this week. Ekeler made a bit of a name for himself last week as Gordon owners experienced fits or rage and madness last week. I still like Gordon even in cash this week. Still whichever back you prefer, they should have a field day.

Jamaal Williams

Green Bay Packers

Next Man Up


As expected, Ty Montgomery officially ruled OUT for Sunday against the Ravens. Jamaal Williams should start at running back.

Williams is not Montgomery or Jones, I would not recommend starting him if you can prevent it. It will probably take a positive game script for him to be heavily use, don’t be surprised if we see Cobb being used in the backfield, especially in third-and-long situations.

Alshon Jeffery

Philadelphia Eagles

Open Door for Agholor


Eagles coach Doug Pederson says that Alshon Jeffery's ankle injury has been lingering for a while, but he is "optimistic" he'll play against the Cowboys Sunday night. He will be listed as questionable.

I’m looking at Nelson Agholor having a nice opportunity to put up some points with Dallas being the 24th ranked defense against opposing WR’s. Ertz coming off of the injury report is an obvious play, he’s a must start whenever he’s on the field.

It seems as though Jeffery plays through injuries every year, but he’s not very effective when he does. His injuries tend to linger and former performance enhancer users tend to get hurt more often.

Kareem Hunt

Kansas City Chiefs

KC Ready to Run


The KC/NYG game could experience heavy winds, and certainly, a blowout of the Giants is a likely outcome as well. If either, or both of these potential situations play out, it could be good things for the KC ground game.

Fantasy Goo: The Giants have surrendered 3 rushing TD in their last 2 games. On the season, they have given up the 5th most yards to opposing backs. Hunt is a great cash game play, and in GPPs, I will toss out a few line-ups with West, maybe 5%. If indeed it is a blowout, the Chiefs, led by Reid who is 16-2 off a bye, could look to lighten the load for their workhorse RB and let Charcandrick bat cleanup.

Sterling Shepard

New York Giants

Sterling Shepard's Time to Shine


The Giants are going to need to put the ball in the air against KC. Keep an eye on the winds in this one. If it is north of 15mph, I will lessen my DFS shares.

Fantasy Goo: If the winds are not bad, Shep could get some looks as he should dominate KC's Steven Nelson. There are 84 starting cornerbacks in the NFL for Week #11. Nelson comes in at #80 according to PFF

Tom Brady

New England Patriots

Brady a Top Bet for DFS Cash Games


The Patriots stayed in mile-high country last week in order to get acclimated to higher altitudes. The Raiders remained at sea level. This week they square off in Mexico City, which is much higher than one mile up. The difference could be seen in the 2nd half where the Raiders could run out of gas.

Fantasy Goo: Regardless of the elevation narrative, this game opened as the only 50 pointer this coming week. Football Outsiders ranks Oakland dead last for defensive DVOA, weighted defense, and overall pass ranking. Plus, Tom Brady is a great stack with Gronk against Oakland who is notoriously bad versus tight ends. Finally, New England will likely be missing Hogan, the recipient of 11 red zone targets this season. Gronk could easily be the beneficiary, as he has 13 himself.

Mike Evans

Tampa Bay Buccaneers

FanDuel Triple Play - Pass Go Collect 2TDS


This Sunday is "National Play Monopoly day." What does that mean for FD? Absolutely nothing, but I'm taking a "chance" and grabbing these 3 players that have a bit higher price tag because that's how I won at Monopoly.

Mike Evans @MIA - $7,800 - Much like AJ Green last week, I am banking on Evans to deliver his game of redemption and bounce back in a BIG way. Ryan Fitzpatrick will only have eyes for the 6'5 Evans as he once did for Brandon Marshall in NY. Evans will coast down A1A for 2TDS!

Travis Kelce @NYG - $7,500 - Kelce has 3TDs in the last 3 games. The Giants are giving up a TD every game to opposing TEs this season. That's crazy! Momma ain't raise no fool. 1+1= 2TDs!

Melvin Gordon vsBUF - $7,800 - The Bills gave up 50FPTS at home to the Saints dynamic duo of Mark Ingram and Alvin Kamara just last week, and now have to fly to LA. Gordon will stampede all over the Buffalo Bills. 2TDs in da house!

 Pickups After Week 10

 

 

russell wilson pyro character - fantasy football

Russell Wilson - QB - Seattle Seahawks

 

Seems like we continually put Russell on this list, but he's still available in a lot of leagues out there. In the past 5 games this rookie has 10 TDs and 2 interceptions, pretty solid! Let's compare that to the rookie QB that everyone is going gaga over, Andrew Luck, who in his past 5 games has 3 touchdown passes and 4 interceptions. Luck has rushed for 4 TDs and had a 400 yard passing game over that span, which obviously boosts his stock, but passing-wise, Wilson is scoring through the air more than the NFL's #1 overall pick. On the season Wilson has 1 more TD that Andrew does, 15 passing TDs compaired to Luck's 10 passing TDs and 5 rushing TDs. Luck is a fantasy starter in 10 team leagues, maybe it's time to start considering Wilson as a guy you can start if you don't have a stud at the position, or have been hit by an injury (Big Ben owners).

 

 

colin kaepernick pyro character - san francisco 49ers QB - fantasy football

Colin Keapernick - QB - San Francisco 49ers

 

All signs point to Alex Smith playing against the Chicago Bears on Monday Night Football. He's been a healthy QB, at least no head injury concerns the team has to worry about, I bet he plays. Which would make Colin K a wasted pickup... but if you have a deep bench, it's worth considering, because if Alex is out or gets labeled again, Colin is a prime fantasy football point machine because he can run so well. He has shown he's an explosive playmaker when under center, usually using his feet. He's an athletic specimen at 6'4" runs faster than Cam Newton (he has 3 TDs runs this season in super-limited action) and has some great playmakers around him. Deep sleeper pick still!

 

 

jake locker pyro character - tennessee titans qb - fantasy football

Jake Locker - QB - Tennessee Titans

 

He didn't have a great game, but he's back! You know we like what this kid can do fantasy-wise, mostly because in standard scoring leagues he can provide points on the ground and has great receivers. While I must mention that he has zero TDs this year on the ground, we expect that to change this week… if he's available on your waiver wire and you need some depth at QB - this is the kind of player that can be your starting QB down the stretch if you don't have one of the horses or injury strikes your squad! Lot's of people dropped him when he got injured last, take a look.

 

 

nick foles pyro character - qb philadelphia eagles - fantasy football

Nick Foles - QB - Philadelphia Eagles

 

We've been singing this kid's praises for about weeks now. Mike was getting injured on every play… and now he actually has a "significant head injury", on a season that is a re-do for the franchise anyway. Add to that a contract that will not be played out by Vick, and fantasy football fans, welcome to the future - Nick Folk is going to be the starting QB for the Eagles for the rest of the year.

 

 

Marcel Reece - RB - Oakland Raiders

 

Looks like Mr. Injury Prone is back on the mend again for a while. Man he just can't stay healthy... Mike Goodson is not going to play this week either. Taiwan Jones is too small, so that leaves Marcel Reece as the RB most like to get fantasy points on an Oakland team that put the points on the board weekly. Good thing is Reece is more of the passing attack back, which is perfect, because no matter what with that Raiders defense being so pourous they will be behind and passing the ball.

 

 

chris ivory pyro character- RB - new orleans saints - fantasy football

Chris Ivory - RB - New Orleans Saints

 

Did you see that 56 yard run by #29 last weekend? It was off the charts. Not sure how much longer Mark Ingram can keep getting the carries, Ivory has shown time and after time that he's a better runner than the Heisman Trophy winner. Remember that Ivory was signed a few weeks ago, and has a TD in each of the two weeks he's played on his old team. I really like the upside of this pickup.

 

 

danny amendola pyro character - rams - WR - fantasy football

Danny Amendola - WR - St. Louis Rams

 

Danny boy hadn't played football in 5 weeks, but he's definitely back on his pass catching grind and the no brainer choice for a scantron test question asking who Sam Bradford's favorite target is. He posted 11 catches on 12 targets and had 102 yards this week, and that was against the best defense in the league. If he's available, especially in PPR (which would be amazing if he still is), then grab him. Crazy stat is that in 3 years in the league, the little white fella only has 6 TDs, so he's not that type of fantasy point scorer, just know that if you are in a TD heavy league - he's not that great.

 

 

golden tate pyro character - WR - seattle seahawks - fantasy football

Golden Tate - WR - Seattle Seahawks

 

He does't have a 100 yard game yet this year, and only has 26 catches on the season, but he does have 3 TDs in the past 2 games (real TDs, not that Green Bay game type of TD). This makes him a wideout worth looking at. I know that Golden "Donut" Tate and Russell Wilson are good buddies of the field, so maybe that whole Romo/Witten thing starts happening in 12th man territory.

 

 

greg olsen pyro character - TE carolina panthers - fantasy football

Greg Olsen - TE - Carolina Panthers

 

Greg has been fairly consistent this season, marginal, but consistant. To land on this list yet again, it's really his targets (19) and catches (14) over the past 2 weeks that has us believing the ex-Bear may have a really nice second half of the season at a position a lot of teams are looking for points. 

 

 

emmanuel sanders pyro character - wr - steelers

Emmanuel Sanders - WR - Pittsburgh Steelers

 

With Antonio being week-to-week with a mild ankle sprain, Emmanuel Sanders will get the start and most of the targets left behind. He had 7 targets this week, but was only able to haul in 2 of them. With Big Ben getting hurt it it's hard to say whether that hurts or helps his chances to put up serviceable fantasy points from Byron Leftwich. Sanders only has 1 TD on the season, so keep your expectations low regardless. This team is in a grey zone at the moment, eeking out a low scoring voctory over the worst team in the league in the Chiefs.

 

mohamed sanu pyro characterr - begals wr - fantasy football

Mohamed Sanu - WR - Cinncinati Bengals

 

Mohamed had his first TD catch as a pro on Sunday (he threw one earlier in the season to A.J.), and was drafted in the 3rd round of April's draft to be the Bengals WR2 alongside A.J. Green, but 9 catches on 12 targets is all he's shown thus far on the year. We put him on the list I suppose in the hopes that he totally turns it on down the stretch, but don't expect much from this rookie from Rutgers. 

 

riley cooper pyro character - wr - philadelphia eagles

Riley Cooper - WR - Philadelphia Eagles

 

I like Damarius Johnson better as a sneaky pickup in the Eagles situation, but Riley is a big target in the Eric Decker mould that has been playing catch with Nick Foles with the second team for months. He could breakout! Stranger things have happened.

 

 

Damaris Johnson - WR - Philadelphia Eagles

 

Maclin out, Avant out, a fellow second teamer in Nick Foles in at QB, this kid could put up a nice few games in a row here. What do the Eagles have to lose?
