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!

LATAVIUS MURRAY – RB – VIKINGS – AVAILABLE IN 34% OF CBS LEAGUES

He is still getting a lot of touches, and this week had 17 carries for 68 yards with a touchdown. Getting the redzone carries makes him a worthy add in deeper leagues.

Waiver Wire Pickup Target for Week 11


JAMISON CROWDER – WR – REDSKINS – AVAILABLE IN 61% OF CBS LEAGUES

MATT BREIDA – RB – 49ERS – AVAILABLE IN 95% OF CBS LEAUGES

Breida had himself a nice game this week, carrying the ball nine times for 55 yards with a touchdown and had one catch for three yards. The 49ers are looking to the future, and Breida will get more looks going forward.

Case Keenum

Minnesota Vikings

Waiver Wire Pickup Target for Week 11


CASE KEENUM – QB – VIKINGS – AVAILABLE IN 73% OF CBS LEAGUES

Looking for a quarterback? Well, how about Keenum? He has the job and the weapons and is doing well. This week he completed 21 of 29 passes for 304 yards with four touchdowns and two interceptions. This is a first place team and they need him the rest of the way.

Corey Davis

Tennessee Titans

Waiver Wire Pickup Target for Week 11


COREY DAVIS – WR – TITANS – AVAILABLE IN 42% OF CBS LEAGUES

Davis had four receptions for 48 yards, so not what we are expecting, but there is light for the future. He is starting to see more targets, and is the future of what the Titans want to be. He will see more looks going forward.

MARQISE LEE – WR – JAGUARS – AVAILABLE IN 42% OF CBS LEAGUES

He is on this list every week, and he came through again with six catches for 55 yards and a score. He is the best option in the Jaguars passing game.

Dontrelle Inman

Los Angeles Chargers

Waiver Wire Pickup Target for Week 11


DONTRELLE INMAN – WR – BEARS – AVAILABLE IN 98% OF CBS LEAGUES

In his first action with the Bears he had six catches for 88 yards. He will be the go to guy for Trubisky and is worth adding in deeper leagues.

Robert Woods

Los Angeles Rams

Waiver Wire Pickup Target for Week 11


ROBERT WOODS – WR – RAMS – AVAILABLE IN 31% OF CBS LEAGUES

Blowing up again…I think you might want to add him. He had eight catches for 171 yards with two scores. He is the Rams #1 and should be on your roster if available.

Joe Mixon

Cincinnati Bengals

Over the Hill


Bengals place Jeremy Hill (ankle) on IR.
Joe Mixon played on a season-high 73% of snaps and handled 94% of Bengals RB carries in Week 9 without Hill. Cincinnati OL remains a massive disaster, though, they are 31st in adjusted OL Yards and bottom-5 in PFF’s yards before first contact per RB attempt.

Volume is key as far as fantasy goes, but let’s take a week before we put Mixon in our starting line-ups. He hasn’t been able to more than 3.5 yards per carry in any game that he’s ha more than 10 carries, and Cincy is playing away, at Tennessee this week, so I expect a negative game script and probably more Gio Bernard.

Detroit Lions

O-line Getting Boost


The Lions activated T Taylor Decker and T Corey Robinson, and Decker will start. Rapsheet thinks this is like signing a big-time free agent midseason.

It usually takes a few games for an offensive line to gel, Stafford is already lighting it up, and tackles don’t usually have a drastic effect in the run game. This is a good sign that Detroit should be able to maintain their offensive consistency and makes Stafford more reliable throughout the fantasy playoffs.

Bilal Powell

New York Jets

Best Buy


Matt Forte didn’t practice for the third straight day with knee swelling. There’s concern about him going forward.

Fire up all the Bilal Powell, and keep Elijah McGuire on your watch-list. Powell is $4000 on DK this week, I have him in all of my GPP line-ups.

Pickups After Week 14

 


Montell Owens - RB - Jacksonville Jaguars - Owned in 8.8% of ESPN Leagues - 14 carries for 91 yards and a TD, I like it… But, Owens plays against the Dolphins who are solid against the run in week 15 and goes against the Patriots in a game that the Jaguars won't be running much, they'll be trying to score as much as possible to keep up with Tom Brady and Co. Maybe he gets you some points next week, but Week 16 he'll be useless.



Nick Foles - QB - Philadelphia Eagles - Owned in 3.9% of ESPN Leagues - Nick had his best game as a pro yesterday, but the team is in shambles and he is a rookie. There are better QB situations out there, including another rookie in Brandon Weeden or Kirk Cousins.



Bilal Powell - RB - New York Jets - Owned in 8.8% of ESPN Leagues - Bilal Powell is entrenched in a RBBC situation with Shonn Greene, and had a nice game that essentially mirrored Greene's yesterday. As with anyone you are going to pickup at this point, there isn't much upside, especially because he is splitting the load - but if you are desperate at the RB position, he's an option.



Kirk Cousins - QB - Washington Redskins - Owned in 0.2% of ESPN Leagues - If RGIII is out with his knee injury, this kid is capable and you have to like his schedule playing against the Browns in week 15 and Philadelphia in week 16. I think RGIII will play.



Clay Harbor - TE - Philadelphia Eagles - Owned in 00.1% of ESPN Leagues - How is this guy on even 1 team on ESPN, must have been his family members drafting him. Brent Celek suffered a concussion in yesterday's game, so who knows. Maybe just stay away, but if you really need a TE or have Celek and he remains out next week, this is your guy.



Danario Alexander - WR - San Diego Chargers - Owned in 27.2% of ESPN Leagues - He's scored 2 TDs in a game twice now, and is unquestionably Philip's favorite wide out. He's got two great match-ups, seeing the Panthers next week and then the Jets in Week 16. If you need help at WR, and this fella is available on the wire, it's a no brainer to grab him.



Brandon Gibson - WR - St. Louis Rams - Owned in 12.3% of ESPN Leagues - Hugely inconsistent, he had gooses on catches the previous two weeks (vs. Cardinals & 49ers) but breaks out with a 100 yards and a TD this week against… of course Buffalo. This is not a guy you want to have to play in your fantasy football playoffs. He'll burn you when you need him to show up most.



Rob Housler - TE - Arizona Cardinals - Owned in 00.1% of ESPN Leagues - I know, it's hard for me to tell you to pickup someone on a team that started 4-0 and has lost 9 games since. But Rob has some talent and he had 10 targets this week. I guess I'm just listing guys here for that 65 player bench 20 man league that I heard about.



LeMichael James - RB - San Francisco 49ers - Owned in 1.0% of ESPN Leagues - This is really just if you have Frank Gore or think Frank Gore could get injured this week. No other reason to grab this rookie out of Oregon unless you have some bench space for a "what-if an injury strikes" player for week 16.



Jason Avant - WR - Philadelphia Eagles - Owned in 0.5% of ESPN Leagues - With DeSean Jackson gone, it looks like Nick Foles is going to be tossing it to Avant plenty. Jeremy Maclin had a great game as well, so that shouldn't eat into Jason's chances.



David Wilson - RB - New York Giants - Owned in 40.3% of ESPN Leagues - No one liked Davis Wilson more than I did heading into the season. He fumbled his second carry ever and after we saw what (what we knew) this kid is capable of, it's pretty obvious that Tom Coughlin fumbled by not using this rookie throughout the season. David was as explosive a back as the Giants have ever had, and went on to get his first career 100 yard game. 



Louis Murphy - WR - Carolina Panthers - Owned in 00.2% of ESPN Leagues - Louis had 9 targets yesterday, which I like. That's really about all I can say about this one. I see Murphy in all of Cam's Microsoft commercials and ads, maybe now it appears that we'll start seeing him in the passing attack.



DeAngelo Williams - RB - Carolina Panthers - Owned in 69.6% of ESPN Leagues - I'm friends with Williams on Facebook, and he's a really nice guy! But nice doesn't win you championships in fantasy football, so I stay away from Carolina RBs at all costs. DeAngelo is here on this list solely because he ripped off that 53 yard catch for a TD, but he only had 3 TDs before that, and he hasn't run for more than 70 yards in a game once this season. Don't expect much from him.



Kenny Britt - WR - Tennessee Titans - Owned in 72.7% of ESPN Leagues - I feel like Kenny Britt has been on our list here 5 times, so I find it hard to believe he could still be available. If he is, make sure to grab him.



Dwayne Harris - WR - Dallas Cowboys - Owned in 00.2% of ESPN Leagues - As I write this the news around is that Dez Bryant will see a hand specialist tomorrow. Dez has had a rough start to his career, and is finally playing up to his potential, I don't see him having surgery now and bringing this positive energy to a halt. Now, if I am wrong, Dwayne Harris will benefit greatly from #88's departure.
