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!

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.

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

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.

Pyro Power Rankings takes a look at the offensive teams that score the most fantasy points, the defenses that allow the least fantasy points

Pyro #FF Power Rankings - After Week 1 - 2017

The power of power rankings is a huge advantage over your unknowing competition. It gives a distinct number for the strength of a team's position group in terms of fantasy points scored, and an idea of how poor a defense is against a particular area of the other team's attack. In developing power rankings for fantasy football it is important to start with points scored as they are the engine that drives your fantasy team. Dominant offenses produce dominant fantasy players and they are the guys chosen in the first few rounds of your drafts.

 

These charts are based off all numbers accumulated during the 2016 season. As the season goes along these numbers grown in strength as more and more teams have exploited or struggled against the opposing team. The differential in fantasy points scored and allowed will have a strong correlation to which teams are truly the best in football as time passes, so as always, pay attention.

 


Which positions on each team are scoring the most fantasy football points thru 1 game played? 

 

Pyro Power Rankings - 2017 FF Points Scored Thru 1 Game


You can also use the points scored chart in selecting your streaming options as a plug and play option or as a bye week fill-in. Teams in GREEN are the best fantasy options, while teams that display in RED are underachieving to say the least. A few shrewd calls in bad matchups for you can be the difference between a win and a loss, and dramatically affect your positioning going into the playoffs.

 


Which defenses are letting up the most fantasy football points at each position thru 1 game played?

 

2017 FF Points Allowed Thru 1 Game - Pyro Power Rankings


The best way to use the points allowed chart to your advantage is to check out your players matchups for the week. When your guy is facing a RED unit against him then you might want to bump him to the bench this week and avoid the disappointment or temper your expectations, however this is best used with lower tier players, because as they say, play your studs. When looking at the points allowed chart, think of it as a stoplight GREEN means go (start 'em), and RED means stop (sit 'em). You can also use the points allowed chart to find tasty matchups for your bye week fill-ins, or to get a jump on the competition in finding the next big in season pick up.

 

In the points allowed chart, colors and ranks are flipped. Every week Pyromaniac will highlight the five best matchups in GREEN meaning these are the defenses you want to target. Pyro will also highlight in RED the toughest matchups, which typically means they are worth avoiding. Target those green matchups when streaming and avoid the red.

 


Who's the best at scoring fantasy football points & allow the least against them thru 1 game played?

 

Pyro Power Rankings 2017 FF Point Differential thru 1 game


While the points scored and the points allowed chart are the most important to your team on a weekly basis, I find it important to look at the differential for each team as it is a pretty good indicator of team strength overall as the first ten teams in differential all made the playoffs in previous seasons. You can use this in the fantasy playoffs as an indicator of whether a team might rest it’s starters or whether they will be battling another playoff caliber team in a battle for seeding. It is also an interesting way to look at which team is the best in the NFL and is a valuable tool for picking the winners amongst your friends.

 

When I first suggested the idea of a fantasy football power rankings it was based off of what we felt the strength of each team was in terms of position groups (i.e. the Patriots wide receiving group) and their rank amongst the league. It is know a staple for examining matchups each week, knowing how important it is to look at each side of the coin and how to plug and play against the best matchups. No matter how you use Pyro’s Fantasy Football Power Rankings, it is a valuable asset in your weekly arsenal. Hopefully this has given you some new ideas in how to use our power rankings to further dominate your competition, Pyro style.
