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!

RB Rankings  WR Rankings  TE Rankings

 

 

Quarterbacks                                        (Updated:  Friday, Dec. 30 - 04:16PM CT)

 

 

 

1.           Tom Brady (vs. Buf) – Tom Brady and the Patriots will be playing in one of the few truly meaningful games this Sunday, which is only part of the reason why I have the Stetson Man as my top-ranked QB for the week. First of all, with a victory over the Bills, the Pats will secure the all-important home-field advantage throughout the playoffs—an asset both Brady and Bill Belichick know very well to be valuable. Second, though maybe slightly less important, is the NFL Passing Yards record. I guarantee both Tommy and his coach know how close he is to snatching that record away from Drew Brees and Dan Marino. At this moment, Brady is 186 yards behind Brees in passing yards this season which might seem like a lot to overcome, but if the Saints decide to sit their starters in the second half of their game, it might not be. Strangely enough, this record could come down to how the St. Louis Rams play against the 49ers because if the ‘Niners lose and the Saints win, New Orleans will have themselves a first-round bye. If San Fran wins, however, the Saints will be locked into the three-seed. Since the ‘Niners should win that game, I expect Drew Brees to sit the second half out which would give Brady a shot at the record if he can toss up about 350 yards. Believe me; he’ll be gunning for it.


2.           Cam Newton (@ NO) – Though this game means absolutely nothing to the Panthers, you can bet your ass it means something to Cam Newton. When a player first comes into the NFL as a rookie, numbers tend to mean a little more to them than they do to the veterans. From what I’ve seen out of Newton this year, stats seem to mean a little more to him than they do for the usual rookie so I expect him to do everything he can to pad them a little bit more in his final game of 2011—especially since he was kept off the Pro Bowl team (even though he says he doesn’t care) 


3.           Eli Manning (vs. Dal – Sunday Night) – This one’s for all the marbles, as they say. In probably the biggest game of 2011’s final weekend and certainly the most meaningful game of the season for the Giants, I expect Manning to come out gunning and not stop until the final whistle blows. In their first matchup just a few weeks ago in Dallas, Eli threw for 400 yards and two TDs en route to a 37-34 win for New York. Though it would turn out to be one of his best fantasy outputs of the year, Manning is certainly no stranger to doing well against Dallas as two of his top-four fantasy games last season were against Dallas as well. With this game expected to be a shootout as usual (this rivalry has averaged a combined 63.8 points the last five games), look for a big fantasy performance out of the NFC Pro Bowler.


4.           Tony Romo (@ NYG – Sunday Night) – Everything usually gets tossed out the door when it comes to interdivisional rivalries like this, but you can’t ignore the fact that the Giants defense has allowed the fifth most fantasy points to opposing QBs this season, along with six 300-yard games and three four-TD games. One of those big games came just a few weeks ago when the Cowboys’ Tony Romo threw for 321 yards and four TDs against them. This should really be no shock at all to those who know Romo as out of six career games throwing for four or more TDs, three of them came against this same New York Giants team. In an excited end to the season for both teams, look for the baby-faced QB to have one last good one for his fantasy owners. Oh, and lastly, don’t worry about his bruised hand as most top athletes tend to play a little bit better when dealing with an injury.


5.           Michael Vick (vs. Was) – This game may not look like it means anything but believe me, to Michael Vick and the Eagles, it does. After being dubbed the “Dream Team” due to all their high-profile signings in the off-season, Philly came out and pretty much fell flat on their face starting off the year with a 1-4 record. It hasn’t gotten much better since, but they at least have a chance to save face this Sunday by beating the Redskins and pulling off an even 8-8 record. Vick, too, crash-landed in 2011 as he’s fallen off in every statistical category from last season while disappointing his fantasy owners to no end. Yes, it seems he’s gotten a bit back on track over the last couple of weekends, but it’s likely been a little too late for most. That said, Vick’s pride will force him to do everything he can to end his (rotten) season on high note and soothe the Eagles management for extending him that 100 million dollar contract.
