Eddie Lacy

Seattle Seahawks

Seattle's Crowded Backfield


Seattle Seahawks RB Thomas Rawls ankle injury will hold him out of week 2 preseason action on Friday. It’s being called a minor injury and Eddie Lacy is now expected to be the starting tailback for the second preseason game.

Fantasy Goo: When it was first announced that Rawls would get the start I thought nothing of it, teams usually rest their banged-up players week 2 anyway. Week 3 is what we really care about, but if they’re resting Rawls this week that becomes somewhat questionable. We should probably consider this a full blown committee at this point, in which case you can read our “League Winners” article to see who I think is worthy of drafting in this backfield.

Andrew Luck

Indianapolis Colts

Indy Needs Some Luck


There has been quite a bit of concern about Andrew Luck’s availability to start the season on the active roster after offseason surgery. Hartbeat points out that, “Colts seem confident in Luck for week 1 as they haven't changed their playbook.” There is a concern about his offensive line though as starting C Ryan Kelly is likely to find himself on the designated IR for return after foot surgery.

Fantasy Goo: Luck put together a 2016 season with a career best 71.2 QBR and a 92.4 PFF grade. If he’s healthy he’s a must start, and his ADP has fallen nearly two rounds since August first. He is now being drafted as the eighth QB off the board. Check out the Draft Kit vol.3 to get the full goo.

Curtis Samuel

Carolina Panthers

Samuel Back in Pads


Curtis Samuel was back in full pads for today's practice (Wednesday), he has missed almost all of training camp with a hamstring problem that began as a issue in the spring. He's been out for so long that it's hard to see him having a immediate early-season role.

Fantasy Goo: Samuel is the ultimate utility knife if he can get healthy, he can pick up the big plays vacated by Ginn and match anything fellow rookie McCaffrey does in the passing game.

Ty Montgomery

Green Bay Packers

Green Bay Rookie's on Display


“Ty Montgomery’s likely absence from Saturday night’s preseason game at Washington will put an even bigger spotlight on the depth-chart battle involving three of Green Bay’s third-day draft picks. Williams is the front-runner in part because he’s shown the best aptitude for pass protection in the backfield. Jones has displayed a different gear in the open field that he’d love to show off in a game if he gets a crease. Mays is the best example of compact power, at 5-10 and 230 pounds.”

Fantasy Goo:Ty performed very well last year with the 3rd best juke rate of 34% and the best yards per contact per touch of all RBs at 2.8. The issue with Montgomery is Jamaal Williams is in line to take away the short yardage work and it’s unclear what type of volume Ty can handle as he rushed double digits in only 1 game.

Jaron Brown

Arizona Cardinals

Jaron Number Two?


Larry Fitzgerald is the No. 1 wideout. Brown? “He’s No. 2 right now,” Coach Bruce Arians said Tuesday.
“I’ve been here for a while,” Jaron Brown said. “Every camp is different. We obviously have injuries, and that gives me an opportunity. I just try to take advantage.

Fantasy Goo: I could see Jaron shooting up draft boards, and I like him as a last round dart throw, but this just makes that receiving corps all the more crowded. A torn ACL prevented Jaron from possibly breaking-out last year. Yesterday we thought JJ Nelson would emerge, I’m sure we will be re-visiting this regularly.

Cole Beasley

Dallas Cowboys

Beasley Under the Radar


NFL Next Gen Stats have revealed many of their numbers to the public recently. Hartbeat picked this one out on Twitter: Cole Beasley adding another advanced stat that he thrives in, Top 10 in separation among all pass catchers.

Fantasy Goo: Beasley was one of the most efficient weapons in the NFL last year. His Defense-adjusted Yards above Replacement and Defense-adjusted Value over Average ranked as 5th best among WRs. For more on Beasley and others check out the Pyro Pulse podcast episode 6, WR Tiers.

John Brown

Arizona Cardinals

John Brown’s Health Back in Question


WR John Brown looking like sickle cell IS NOT being managed by the Cardinals. Could be another injury plagued season for Brown. Arians said WR John Brown not practicing full time is a concern (He's been participating in certain drills during practice).

Fantasy Goo: JJ Nelson was the WR11 in PPR scoring weeks 13-17, it appears as though we should be drafting Nelson as one of our late round flyers immediately. If the Brown news continues to be negative we will begin to see Nelson’s stock rise. Jaron Brown and Chad Williams are names we should also keep an eye on, but Arians has complained about their lack of performance publicly.

Maxx Williams

Baltimore Ravens

Maxx Looks Slow, Open Door for Watson


“Tight end Maxx Williams deserves a ton of credit for persevering through a serious knee surgery and getting back onto the field this summer. But in watching him run, it’s still pretty clear that he has a ways to go. He has bulked up and gotten considerably stronger, so it will be interesting to see whether he becomes more of a blocking tight end, assuming he’s on the season-opening roster.”

fantasy Goo: Ben Watson appears to be worth a last round flier. Denis Pitta was the number eight TE overall last year and he only scored 2 TD’s. Watson was the number 6 TE in 2015 with Drew Brees throwing him 6 TD’s.

Ryan Mathews

Philadelphia Eagles

Ryan Matthews Released


After passing his physical earlier today, The Eagles have informed former starting RB Ryan Mathews that he's been released. This move was completely expected, the Eagles save a bunch of money by releasing him now.

Fantasy Goo: Hartbeat would like to see him land in: IND, SF, MIA or CHI (all backup roles). I think the Giants or Ravens should see what he has left in the tank, even if it’s just a few games Matthews is a talented back, he’s just been drenched with injuries. I don’t think the team that picks him up has to pay much for him.

Devonta Freeman

Atlanta Falcons

Freeman in Concussion Protocol


Coach Quinn says Devonta Freeman is in concussion protocol, will be ruled out for Sunday's game. This really means nothing if he’s back by next week, but if this lingers like Jay Ajayi’s concussion, Coleman might actually be worth his draft value in the sixth round.

Fantasy Goo: Despite being only 206 lbs he had the 3rd most RZ carries with 53. Although Coleman is an extremely strong receiver Freeman was still top 5 in catches among RBs on only a 63% snap share.

Leonard Fournette

Jacksonville Jaguars

Fournette Battling Same Issues


Jaguars rookie RB Leonard Fournette suffered a foot injury and HC Doug Marrone said team intends to be "careful with him." Fournette battled a recurring foot/ankle injury throughout his final season at LSU. It was a real problem most of the year.

Fantasy Goo: Fournette was clocked running 22.9 MPH at LSU last season, for reference Tyreek Hill was the NFLs fastest player at 23.2MPH. It appears as though Jacksonville is being cautious, but rookies need to get on the field and learn the nuances of the NFL, especially pass blocking.

Jordan Matthews

Buffalo Bills

Matthews Must Play With Pain


Bills' WR Jordan Mathews has what team is calling "a chip fracture in his sternum" and is week to week.
The good news is that it’s just a pain tolerance issue. The bad news is that it can be pretty painful.

Fantasy Goo: Matthews move to Buffalo had very little effect on his projections, but with lack of practice with his new team he will almost certainly get off to a slow start. Check the Pyro Pulse Podcast (Ep.5) to get the hot, sticky goo on how this affects the value of the other Bills and Eagles skill players.

Marqise Lee

Jacksonville Jaguars

Lee High Ankle Sprain Opens Door for Hurns, Again


Jaguars WR Marqise Lee suffered a high-ankle sprain, source said. He'll push hard to be ready for Week 1, but caution could push it back.

Fantasy Goo: Lee was the 39th overall pick of the 2014 draft. In 2016 he caught a career-high 63 passes for 851 yards and three touchdowns. He was finally healthy after continuous injuries the last two years. I think many would rank him higher if we could be sure that he has beaten Allen Hurns out for regular targets.

Jordan Reed

Washington Redskins

Reed Has "Special Shoes"


“Redskins tight end Jordan Reed said his new cleats and orthotics have made a difference for his sprained big toe. Reed said, "I'll be out there shortly." He remains on the PUP list.”

Fantasy Goo: Jay Gruden has made it very clear that the offense runs through Jordan Reed, this was never more prominent than when the Redskins let their two best WRs based on production walk this offseason. Reed has obviously red flags when it comes to injuries, he is one dirty hit away from a career ending concussion. When he is healthy, there is no TE that I would rather have, Reed has averaged the most fantasy points per game over the past two seasons and is targeted on a minimum of 15% of his routes.

Sterling Shepard

New York Giants

Shepard Back in Practice


“Just 11 days after he was carted off the practice field with an ankle injury fearing the worst, Shepard practiced fully with his teammates on Sunday. There appeared to be very few restrictions on the second-year receiver, who also didn't seem to be favoring his injured ankle at all.”

Fantasy Goo: Shepard finished second among rookie WRs in targets, catches, yards and touchdowns. In general, second year WRs see a jump in fantasy production by 16%, but Sterling is more likely to move in an inverse fashion. With the Giants bringing in Brandon Marshall and Evan Engram, Shepard is the most likely to see a decrease in targets. See Hartbeat, WR Gold Diggers vol.1 for more.

Robby Anderson

New York Jets

Robby With Early Bomb


With Enunwa out for the season the New York Jets will be looking for one of their young receivers to step-up. On their first drive Josh McCown connected with Robby Anderson for a 53 yard gain and finished the drive with a 4-yard TD pass to Charone Peake. Anderson finished the first half with three receptions for 71 yards.

Fantasy Goo: Anderson could be a nice late-round flyer, but this offense doesn’t project for much fire-power. Anderson projects for a 63/830/4 line and Peake is nothing more than a DFS GPP play or possible bye-week flyer.

Travis Kelce

Kansas City Chiefs

Kelce to Return Next Week


After the game, Chiefs coach Andy Reid provided an update on a few of those guys, specifically Travis Kelce. “They are close,” Reid noted of those three guys. “(They will) potentially get some work this next week, we’ll just see how it goes. They’ve got a big rehab session (Saturday), so we’ll see.”

Fantasy Goo: Since he fractured his patella in 2013 and missed his entire rookie campaign, Kelce has not missed a game. Kelce led all TEs last season in fantasy points, but he also thrived under advanced metrics, also leading the league in Success Rate on 65% of his plays. – Hartbeat
I five games without Maclin on the field over the past two years Kelce averages 2.76 more PPR points per game even though he did not score a TD in any of them.

Jay Ajayi

Miami Dolphins

Ajayi Still in Concussion Protocol


Running backs coach Danny Barrett believes Kenyan Drake could be an every-down back if Jay Ajayi misses multiple games. He said Drake is “more reliable, more dependable, being where he’s supposed to be – especially in our passing game”

Fantasy Goo: I’m not necessarily buying what they’re selling, but Ajayi out for 10 days so far does concern me. Gase was not happy with Ajayi to start last year and it was a work-ethic issue. A concussion requires medical clearance and cannot be put in the same category, but Gase seems to have the old-school mentality of, “you can’t make the club from the tub.” If Ajayi is out for any amount of time we can expect about a 50/50 split from Drake and Damien Williams, neither is built for work-horse carries.

Jordan Matthews

Buffalo Bills

Bills replace Watkins with Jordan Matthews


“Bills acquired WR Jordan Matthews and a 2018 third-round pick from the Eagles in exchange for CB Ronald Darby.” I’m not quite sure what the Bills are thinking here, they now have three (Zay Jones, Anquan Boldin) receivers that play predominantly out of the slot.

Fantasy Goo: For Matthews this is pretty much a lateral move, if he continues to play from the slot. He is far more successful from the slot compared to playing the outside receiver positions.

RB Player Rankings – Week 12

(BYE:  NONE!)

 

QB Rankings  WR Rankings  TE Rankings

 

 

Running Backs



 

1.       Chris Johnson (@ Hou) – Chris Johnson went ballistic in his two games against the Texans last year to the tune of 174 yards and 1.5 TDs per game.  He may or may not repeat those numbers, but it’s hard to bet against arguably the best running back in the game today.

 

2.       Peyton Hillis (vs Car) – The Big Twinkie has become much more than just a yummy after-school treat for fantasy owners, and he’ll continue his rampage on the league this weekend against Carolina.  I’ll be incredibly surprised if he doesn’t put up a good 150 total yards (with at least 100 on the ground) and two TDs in this game.

 

3.       Adrian Peterson (@ Was) – Until these last two weeks, Peterson hadn’t gone two games in a row without a TD since back in 2008.  That trend will stop this weekend against the Redskins.  Add in 100 yards or so and you’ll have his day pretty well summed up.

 

4.       Darren McFadden (vs Mia) – If Matt Forte can go off for 97 yards and a touchdown against the Dolphins, I can’t wait to see what McFadden does!  Get him in there at all costs.

 

5.       Ray Rice (vs TB) – Rice will be given every chance in the world to rack up immense fantasy stats for your team this week as the Bucs boast the league’s fourth worst defense against the run.  150 total yards and a TD are possible here.

 

6.       Frank Gore (@ Ari) – Gore should be able to tear this defense apart on Monday night.  In his two games against Arizona last year, Gore averaged 98.5 yards and 1.5 TDs.  I can see him coming awfully close to those exact numbers in Week 12.

 

7.       Arian Foster (vs Ten) – Tennessee’s rush defense has been solid all year long, but Foster can beat you in a variety of ways.  I wouldn’t expect the world from him this weekend, but 125 total yards and a TD are well within his grasp.

 

8.       Rashard Mendenhall (@ Buf) – Mendenhall will be given the opportunity to go ballistic against the Bills 32nd-ranked rush D this weekend, but that doesn’t mean he will.  Just last weekend against the Raiders (25th against the run), he only managed to rush for 59 yards on 23 carries, though he did have a touchdown.  I expect better than that this weekend, but it’s not as much of a definite as it may seem.

 

9.       Steven Jackson (@ Den) – It almost looks like Denver doesn’t even enjoy stopping opposing teams from running all over them.  “The Beast” could be in line for a real nice game here, as in 100-plus yards and a TD.

 

10.     Jamaal Charles (@ Sea) – “The Ostrich” only has one TD in the past four games, but he’s also put up 100 total yards or more in each one of them as well.  With Seattle’s pass D being as bad as it is, the Chiefs will likely use Charles more than Jones in this game to try and take advantage of the Seahawks deficiency.

 

11.     BenJarvus Green-Ellis (@ Det) – The Lions have given up 11 rushing TDs so far this year (tied for 4th most in the league) while allowing opposing running backs to gain 4.6 YPC.  The Firm may not be the most dynamic or frightening of RBs, but he can rack up the stats on you if you don’t pay attention to him.

 

12.     LaDainian Tomlinson (vs Cin) – The Jets have been tapering down LT21’s carries the past handful of weeks, but that doesn’t mean he won’t rack up a whole bunch of total yards and probably a TD in this one.  Cinci allows the seventh most points in the league (26.2 points/game) with a good amount of them coming on the ground.  Look for LaDainian to snatch one up this Thanksgiving.

 

13.     Mike Tolbert (@ Ind) – Tolberticus Touchdownimust!  The guy just keeps on rolling along as he took yet another ball into the endzone last week against the Donkeys.  With Mathews likely out again this week, Tolbert may do even more damage against a Colts D that allows now only a ton of yardage on the ground, but a whole bunch of TDs as well.

 

14.     Brandon Jacobs (vs Jax) – Jacobs becomes the beneficiary of Bradshaw’s recent demise, and what a game to get a chance like this in.  The Jags allow opposing running backs to do pretty much whatever they want, so if Brandon wants to show his worth, now’s the time to do it.  I expect at least a TD in this one, and if he can get a good 20 carries or so, 100 yards should be had as well.

 

15.     Knowshon Moreno (vs StL) – Moreno visited the endzone yet again last weekend and is starting to look like a mid-level RB2 for fantasy teams at this point.  He won’t hit 100 yards on the ground, but he’ll put up that many in total yards and probably find his way to paydirt along the way.

 

16.     Maurice Jones-Drew (@ NYG) – Not only do the Giants have one of the best pass D’s in the league, but they also have a top-5 rush D as well.  If the Jags had a scary-good passing offense to take the heat off of MJD this game, I’d say roll with him as a RB1 this week.  But they don’t, so the Giants will likely crowd the line and pay extra-special attention to Jones-Drew in an effort to not let Jacksonville’s best player beat them.

 

17.     LeSean McCoy (@ Chi) – I actually don’t like this matchup for McCoy all that much as the Bears D gives up the second least amount of yards to RBs this year and have the speed to keep up with the young stud.  That said, McCoy can be effective in a multitude of ways and if he finds the slightest seem, he’s off to the races.  You never know, especially with Vick running the show.

 

18.     Michael Turner (vs GB) – “The Centaur” hasn’t had a lot of success against the better rush defenses in the league this year, and though the numbers may not show it, the Packers do have a good rush D.  I can maybe see a short-yardage TD coming in this game, but don’t expect more than 60 to 70 yards or so.

 

19.     Keiland Williams (vs Min) – Keiland will get the call once again as the head horse against the Vikings this Sunday.  He’s been a pretty productive rookie back these past couple of weeks, and though the Vikings rush D is tough, I expect at least 100 total yards and a few chances at a TD in this contest.

 

20.     Ahmad Bradshaw (vs Jax) – Bradshaw was demoted to second-string after coughing up the ball a league-high sixth time against the inner-division rival Eagles last week.  That doesn’t mean he won’t get his touches, because otherwise he’s been amazing this year, but you can’t expect more than a split with Jacobs this week as coach Coughlin teaches the kid a lesson.

 

21.     Matt Forte (vs Phi) – Forte had a sweet game against a pretty good Miami defense last week, but Philly’s D is even better than that, so don’t expect those same numbers this weekend.  Maybe 100 total yards is reachable with a less than average chance at a TD.

 

22.     Thomas Jones (@ Sea) – Seattle’s rush D is good at limiting yardage, but they do give up TDs on the ground pretty easily.  If the Chiefs get down around the goal-line, Jones will almost assuredly punch one in.

 

23.     Jonathan Stewart (@ Cle) – Stewart looks like he’ll be back from his concussion this week against the Browns, but you might want to hold off on using him until he proves himself a bit.  It’s not like he was tearing up the joint before he hit his head.

 

24.     Donald Brown (vs SD) – Brown will likely be getting another chance to prove himself this week, and any running back starting in the backfield for the Colts is a good enough play for me.  Granted, Donald hasn’t looked like the world-beater he did coming out of college, but Manning might have to use him quite a bit this game if the Colts want to get through this San Diego D.

 

25.     LeGarrette Blount (@ Bal) – Blount continues to impress the hell out of me.  Even though the yards were tough to come by against a stout San Fran rush defense last week, he was still able to tote the rock 26 times on the day without fumbling while keeping the ball in Tampa’s hands en route to a 21-0 win.  He may not be the greatest of plays against a hard-nosed Ravens D, but you could do worse for sure.

 

26.     Danny Woodhead (@ Det) – I am going to repeat this statement until he’s a household name:  The records this kid set at both his High School in North Platte, Wisconsin and at his D-II school at Chadron State College are simply staggering.  I mean Madden 2011-style staggering.  As in the kid averaged 183 rushing yards/game over FOUR YEARS at Chadron State (212.0 was his highest average – Junior Year) and had 109 total TDs during that time (38 was his most – Junior Year).  He rushed for more than 200 yards in a game 19 of his 39 appearances and scored in 37 straight contests, both NCAA records.  Just to top it all off, Woodhead also ran track in High School for one year and broke his school’s 100-meter record with a time of 10.5 seconds.  Undrafted in the NFL or not, this kid is special.

 

27.     Fred Jackson (vs Pit) – FJax will almost certainly be flying solo in the Bills backfield again this Sunday, but unless he does some damage in the receiving game, he’ll end up worthless for your fantasy team.

 

28.     Cedric Benson (@ NYJ) – What’s even worse for the Bengals in this game is that the Jets rush defense is even better than their pass D!  That said, Benson should get a heavy workload in an effort to control the game, so some decent stats could come as a result.

 

29.     Chris Ivory (@ Dal) – With Pierre Thomas out another week, Ivory will get the call once again as the main ball-handler against the Cowboys.  Dallas has been decent against the run this year, but the Saints will still use him to set up the pass enough to give him fantasy value this week.

 

30.     Shonn Greene (vs Cin) – The big, second-year back has been working his way back into the fold lately as he’s had more carries than LT21 in each of the last two games.  He may not be as dynamic as the old guy, but he’ll get the opportunity to run it down the Bengals throat when all’s said and done this Thursday night.

 

31.     Felix Jones (vs NO) – If Felix suits up on Thursday, I can envision him totaling a good 80-100 yards as both a runner and receiver.  TDs have been scarce with him, but he’s always a threat to break a long one so if you have no one else to turn to, you might as well take a chance.

 

32.     Ronnie Brown (@ Oak) – Ronnie has barely been worth using at all this year, but if you’re looking for one game to show him the field, this might be the one.  The Raiders can be beat on the ground, and with the Dolphins being sans Brandon Marshall, Brown could actually get enough work to do some damage.
