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.

Pyro Fantasy Football Power Rankings

Week 12 Power Rankings for all 32 NFL Teams

 

 

Welcome to the Pyromaniac.com Fantasy Power Rankings. This weekly article is where you will find out which teams are dominating, or are being dominated, on the offensive and defensive side of the ball, in terms of Fantasy points. See below to see who the BEST team in the league is. These charts and our insight will help you visualize how the season has gone to this point, and give you a better feel for how the season will go week to week.  By using these charts you will have a better understanding of which matchups to exploit on a week-to-week basis, and DOMINATE your fantasy league.  This chart also includes averages at the bottom so you can compare a team’s score to the average and see exactly where they stand in evaluating the matchups.

 

 

 

TOTAL FANTASY POINTS PER GAME SCORED BY NFL TEAM OFFENSES


week 12 - pyro power rankings fantasy football - most points scored by NFL teams in fantasy football

 

 

The Pittsburgh offense really struggled without the presence of Ben Roethlisberger. With Byron Leftwich running the show All four of their scoring categories were drastically decreased. Overall, their total points scored dropped 2.3 points causing them to fall 6 spots in the rankings. Now, with their third quarterback under center in three weeks one can only expect them to fall a few more spots until the return of Ben Roethlisberger.

 

The New Orleans Saints are now the only team in the league to have all four of their position groups to rank in the top five. With the induction of Chris Ivory into the running back by committee the running backs for the Saints have each started to run better. His induction has really sparked this offense and made former Heisman Winner Mark Ingram run harder and harder week after week. To bad their defense is so bad and Payton was out or I would say the Saints are the team to take for NFL betting at Top Bet (click here for more information).

 

The biggest risers this week were the Houston Texans whose offense lit it up against the Jacksonville Jaguars. The quarterback score for the Texans jumped from 14.7 to 17.3 an incredible 2.6 point leap in a week, things like that happen when you throw for over 500 yards and 5 scores. The receivers also pulled themselves out of last place led by an amazing game by Andre Johnson. They jumped up from 14.7 to 17.8 and now rank 28th in the league.

 

The biggest faller in the rankings this week were the Baltimore Ravens. A week after dropping the double nickel on the Oakland Raiders they played a much more stifling defense in the Pittsburgh Steelers. After jumping 7 spots last week they feel 8 this week to right around the league average where they will most likely end the season. The most disappointing part of the Ravens offense has to be the ranking of their running backs fueled by Ray Rice as they barely crack the top ten.

 

 

 

TOTAL FANTASY POINTS PER GAME ALLOWED BY NFL TEAM DEFENSES 


pyro power rankings - week 12 - most points allowed by NFL defenses in fantasy football

 

After allowing a perfect passer rating to rookie RG3 the Eagles defense fell five spots in our rankings.  RG3 took it to them only failing to complete one pas on the day while also running effectively after being stifled in the last few games. The Eagles dream team defense is now merely average in all aspects. The total score for the Eagles increased 2.2 points against a rookie quarterback while their own rookie Nick Foles single handedly caused the Redskins defense to jump four spots.

 

The Bengals received the best gift a team could ask for at this stage, the ability to play the Kansas City Chiefs last week. They were able to gain 6 spots in the rankings taking on the two-headed monster (not) of Brady Quinn and Matt Cassel. The Atlanta Falcons also jumped 6 spots in the rankings while taking on a two-headed monster at quarterback for the Cardinals in Ryan Lindley and John Skelton. As always this just solidifies the notion that if you have two quarterbacks you really have none.

 

The biggest riser this week was the Miami Dolphins Defense. They did not allow a single touchdown on defense, they did however allow McKelvin to return an electric punt return. This is a situation that is against the norm, as usually the team that rises the most tends to win the game, not so much this time as they fell to the Bills.

 

The biggest faller in the ranks this week were the San Diego Chargers who were graced with the unlucky match up of facing the Denver Broncos who are now clicking on all cylinders. Peyton Manning was on his game gaining 270 yards and throwing for 3 scores. Peyton got his old running mate Brandon Stokley involved much more in this game instead of working with too heavily with Eric Decker this game. The San Diego Chargers fell 8 spots and are now merely a mediocre defense instead of the top 10 ranking they have been sporting the last few weeks.

 

 

 

THE DIFFERENTIAL FOR OFFENSIVE FANTASY POINTS SCORED

VS. FANTASY POINTS ALLOWED BY THE DEFENSE

pyro power rankings week 12 - fantasy football points differential NFL teams chart

 

 

The San Francisco 49ers put on a dominating display on Monday night football this week and extended their point differential to 20, an outstanding their number further cementing themselves as the top team in the NFL. Their defense absolutely stifled Jason Campbell and the Bears offense and Colin Kaepernick in his first NFL start lit up one of the best pass defenses in the league. This offense seemed to have an extra gear under Kaepernick and he didn’t even showcase his best ability too much, running the football.

 

On the flip side the Bears fell two spots after the whooping the 49ers put on them. Their differential fell an amazing 5 points from 8.9 to 3.9. They are now merely looking like a team merely in the wildcard hunt rather than the one seed the looked destined for just two short weeks ago. Without Cutler this offense is really struggling and needs him back in order to make that final playoff push.

 

The Washington Redskins jumped 4 spots in the rankings this week after facing the downtrodden Eagles. Their offense performed at an exceptional level and their defense stifled Nick Foles in his first NFL start. The Redskins need their defense to start playing better and better if they plan on becoming one of the better teams in the NFL week in and week out. The Redskins opponents last weekend just happen to be the biggest fallers in our rankings. The Eagles have just lost it and all the hopes Eagles fans may have had in Nick Foles quickly diminished with that efforts against a weak Redskins secondary. The Eagles are now reeling and also lost their best player LeSean McCoy is now also suffering from a concussion.
