Zay Jones

Buffalo Bills

Jones to Compete for WR2


Zay Jones' and his 399 college reception record could make an immediate impact as he performed favorable to Sterling Shepard in college.

Fantasy Goo: Jones' is many fantasy analysts favorite among rookie WRs in 2017. With the 167 vacated targets among Woods, Goodwin and Hunter, Zay has upside as a fantasy WR3.

Will Tye

New York Giants

Coughlin May Bring Giants to JAX


The Giants have reportedly started shopping Will Tye and Tom Coughlin may be a suitor. If Tye is traded it would convey their plans to use Engram could be immediate.

Fantasy Goo: Although rookie TE's have historically lacked production, Engram is more of a big slot WR. If they move Tye Engram will likely split time in teh slot with Sterling Shepard and could be worth a late round flier after we saw Shepard score 8 TDs in the same position.

Geronimo Allison

Green Bay Packers

Geronimo Suspended For Opener


Geronimo Allison is suspended for Week 1 due to violating the NFL Policy and Program for Substances of Abuse.

Fantasy Goo: It is worth noting that Geronimo put up 4 catches for 91 yards and a score Week 17 when Jordy was being shadowed by Darrius Slay. He could be nice DFS play in games Jordy gets shadowed and Cobb or Adams are inactive.

Braxton Miller

Houston Texans

Braxton A Breakout WR?


QB Guru George Whitfield thinks Braxton Miller could take a dramatic step forward as a WR

Fantasy Goo: September 7, 2015. That was when Braxton took a direct snap, scrambled left and then put a spin move on the Virginia Tech defense that froze in time and broke Twitter. Miller was an all around stud in college and has Julian Edelman type potential. He could be worth a very late round pick, but keep him on your radar.

Todd Gurley

Los Angeles Rams

Todd Gurley Could See More Targets in 2017


Sean McVay recently went on ESPN LA and talked about Jared Goff's development and how the Rams are looking to get Gurley more work in the passing game.

Fantasy Goo: Not known for his receiving skills, despite Dunbar coming to the Rams in the offseason, Sean McVay will travel by air to get Gurley into open space. McVay know's the O-Line is a work in progress, but Gurley is an animal in the open field.

Le'Veon Bell

Pittsburgh Steelers

Le'Veon Bellcow To Play On Franchise Tag


Le'Veon Bell reportedly turned down the Steelers 5 year contract that averaged 12 million per year. That number is 50% higher than the next highest paid RB, LeSean McCoy.

Fantasy Goo: This was a ballsy move by Bell, he has stated that he wants to reset the RB market. Adrian Peterson's 2012 was one of the largest RB contracts as he amassed $20.1 million on his base + incentives. Le'Veon Bell is now the #1 player to have in 2017 playing on a contact year under the Franchise tag.

Dan Orlovsky

Detroit Lions

Rams Add Veteran QB


The Rams veteran journeyman Dan Orlovsky to backup their promising young QB Jared Goff. Orlovsky is rejoining his OC from his 2005 season in Detroit.

Fantasy Goo: Orlovsky's last effective game was in 2015 when he threw for 191 yards with a TD and an interception. Even if Goff goes down for an extended period of time Orlovsky has never shown the ability to have a fantasy presence.

Carlos Henderson

Denver Broncos

Carlos Henderson Impresses in Broncos OTA’s


"Carlos is a great route-runner," fellow wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders said during OTAs. "He keeps his arms running through the cuts. I’ve been watching film on him and just seeing how he is. He is a technique guy."

Fantasy Goo: This offense has been missing the short-game middle of the field presence in the passing game from a TE or slot receiver. It’s hard to say how many opportunities are there with the QB situation the way it is and two premier receivers on the outside, but this report sounds like they are looking to create opportunities for him, even if it’s on special teams. His metrics profile compares best to Stealing Sheppard.

Chris Johnson

Arizona Cardinals

Cardinals Re-sign RB Chris Johnson to One-year Contract


This is the perfect situation for everyone involved. Johnson obviously knows the offense, the Cardinals have a solid back-up and can bring their rookie along slowly. Ellington has moved to WR and Kerwynn Williams is comfortable with the offense, but certainly not a solid No.2.

Fantasy Goo:
It doesn’t move the needle for anyone’s value, David Johnson is still the number one or two overall pick and there was no “handcuff” on the radar to begin with. In the four games Chris Johnson was active last year he only did more than spell David in one game, when Arizona crushed Tennessee 40-7.

Mike Williams

Los Angeles Chargers

Chargers First Round Pick Might Need Surgery


Reports on Mike Williams are mixed on whether he’ll need surgery or not for the herniated disk in his back, either way it seems unlikely that he will have anything to contribute this year. It seems like Schefter and Rapoport are having a little pissing contest as to whether Williams will actually need surgery.

Fantasy Goo: Draft Tyrell Williams as your WR3, he’s going after the 10th round right now, but that won’t happen for much longer. Keep Dontrell Inman on your radar, he could be a late round flyer in PPR leagues, with Allen out last year Inman finished with more PPR points than Ginn, Cobb and DeVante Parker.

Gary Barnidge

Cleveland Browns

Jaguars Meet With Barnidge


“Barnidge was released by Cleveland following this year's NFL Draft. The Browns used a first-round pick on Miami tight end David Njoku, who is set to take on Barnidge's playing time. If the Jaguars were to sign Barnidge, it would be a homecoming for the veteran tight end.”

Fantasy Goo: This means nothing, Barnidge will not have a repeat of his 2015 season. Barnidge is a solid blocking TE that had a spectacular year when there were no other options in the offense. The Jaguars aren’t very adept at using the TE either, Julius Thomas did next to nothing in his two years with the team.

Jay Ajayi

Miami Dolphins

Run Anywhere Else


When Jay Ajayi runs to either side of Jermon Bushrod the Dolphins starting right guard (7 or 8 holes) he averaged 2.97 yards per rush. When Jay Ajayi ran on plays designed for any other holes he averaged 6.04 yards per.

Fantasy Goo: Bushrod was clearly the weak link in Miami's line finishing the year with a 43 PFF Player grade. Look for Miami to try to replace him with Kraig Urbik or Jesse Davis once training camps roll in.

D'Onta Foreman

Houston Texans

Texans Rookie Gets Caught with Stoned Friend


Big news of D’Onta Foreman’s arrest came on Sunday (7/16) and because everyone is in front of their computers, the news splashed Twitter into a frenzy. The gun he had was legal, his passenger is taking the fall for the weed.

Fantasy Goo: If he’s clean on the piss test, absolutely nothing happens, maybe a 1-2 game suspension at most. He does take a hit in dynasty if he fails the drug test, buy low.

Jarvis Landry

Miami Dolphins

Deadline Set for Miami to Re-Sign Landry


Landry will not negotiate his contract after the season begins. I’m not so sure Landry is in Miami’s future plans. They surely won’t franchise him for $18 million next year and they just gave Kenny Stills a nice contract.

Fantasy Goo:I believe Miami has high hopes for DeVante Parker becoming the wide receiver one they drafted him to be. That may be a tall task with Tannehill running the show, but Parker appears to be far more committed to improving this year.

Carlos Hyde

San Francisco 49ers

The 49ers Backfield Community


Reports out of SF say that Hyde has to earn the starting job. SF drafted two running backs and signed several free agents in the off-season including Tim Hightower and Kyle Juszczyk. If Hyde stays healthy there’s little doubt he earns the job, but he’s in the last year of his contract so if SF has their expected slow start I expect them to turn to their other options quickly.

Fantasy Goo: There are also reports that Hyde doesn’t fit into the Shanahan system well, he’s a tremendous athlete, but this is the time of year to pay attention to the negative information when we usually see nothing but fluff.

Virgil Green

Denver Broncos

Denver Tight End Job Up for Grabs


The team did select tight end Jake Butt in the 2017 NFL draft, but a knee injury suffered in Michigan’s bowl game may keep the talented rookie out of action for this entire season.

Fantasy Goo: Virgil Green is a blocker and AJ Derby is a natural athlete that converted to TE from QB, they believe he can be used in many ways and McCoy’s offense can use a third pass-catcher. Derby isn’t worth drafting, but we may want to keep an eye on him.

Demaryius Thomas

Denver Broncos

Denver Receivers Excited for New Offense


“We’ve got this new offense with Mike McCoy. We’re going to be throwing the ball around so my conditioning has to be up and I’ve been working on that.’’
Sanders is working on a healthier lifestyle and getting ready for a high paced offense. Thomas is just happy to get his favorite play back in the rotation (WR screen).

Fantasy Goo: Thomas’ ADP is rising to the second round, while Sanders’ is hanging around in the late fifth. If you miss on Thomas keep an eye on Sanders slipping to you. While we’re not sure who the QB will be, these two should be just fine where they are being drafted.

Doug Martin

Tampa Bay Buccaneers

McNichols Working on Pass Catching Skills


Jeremy McNichols has been working with the Bucs wide receivers. He's going basically undrafted, McNichols may be worth a late round flyer if you’re in a FFPC (28 round) draft, but we have to see what happens in camp before we can judge this one.

Fantasy Goo: Doug Martin’s ADP has risen to the point where he’s getting way too expensive. If he’s hanging around in the ninth or tenth he might be worth a shot, but there are probably better options to choose from before that point.

Frank Gore

Indianapolis Colts

Opportunities in Colts Backfield


“As long as I’m healthy and my guys up front get me the opportunities, I’m going to be successful,’’ Gore said.
Offensive coordinator Rob Chudzinski remains squarely in Gore’s corner, but there figures to be more of a backs-by-committee approach this season. “You can go a lot of different directions in that you can feature more things or different things with different people,’’ he said. “Some of that will be personnel-driven.’’

Fantasy Goo: With no improvements to the O-line, Robert Turbin showing life in camp, and Marlon Mack being drafted, I don’t see how Gore improves on last year’s total. He keeps on ticking like the energizer bunny, but I think that cliff is close. I’ve been high on him every year until now.

Eric Ebron

Detroit Lions

Ebron to see more red-zone targets?


Ebron’s ADP has risen 2-3 rounds, depending on your scoring, in the past two months. Everyone seems to think that Ebron will see more red-zone looks this year with Boldin’s 22 RZ targets leaving town. He has a very safe floor so there’s no real downside to drafting him in the eighth round or later.

Fantasy Goo: I’m going to keep an eye on Boldin as well, he hasn’t signed with another team yet, and he’s not finished playing. Detroit is still on the list of places he could end up.

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.
