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!

Waiver Wire Pickup Target for Week 11


LATAVIUS MURRAY – RB – VIKINGS – AVAILABLE IN 34% OF CBS LEAGUES

He is still getting a lot of touches, and this week had 17 carries for 68 yards with a touchdown. Getting the redzone carries makes him a worthy add in deeper leagues.

GARRETT CELEK – TE – 49ERS – AVAILABLE IN 95% OF CBS LEAGUES

With George Kittle out of the game, Celek had four catches for 67 yards with a 47-yard touchdown. He is viable as long as Kittle is out.

JAMISON CROWDER – WR – REDSKINS – AVAILABLE IN 61% OF CBS LEAGUES

MATT BREIDA – RB – 49ERS – AVAILABLE IN 95% OF CBS LEAUGES

Breida had himself a nice game this week, carrying the ball nine times for 55 yards with a touchdown and had one catch for three yards. The 49ers are looking to the future, and Breida will get more looks going forward.

Case Keenum

Minnesota Vikings

Waiver Wire Pickup Target for Week 11


CASE KEENUM – QB – VIKINGS – AVAILABLE IN 73% OF CBS LEAGUES

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.

Tennessee Titans

Waiver Wire Pickup Target for Week 11


COREY DAVIS – WR – TITANS – AVAILABLE IN 42% OF CBS LEAGUES

Davis had four receptions for 48 yards, so not what we are expecting, but there is light for the future. He is starting to see more targets, and is the future of what the Titans want to be. He will see more looks going forward.

Waiver Wire Pickup Target for Week 11


MARQISE LEE – WR – JAGUARS – AVAILABLE IN 42% OF CBS LEAGUES

He is on this list every week, and he came through again with six catches for 55 yards and a score. He is the best option in the Jaguars passing game.

Los Angeles Chargers

Waiver Wire Pickup Target for Week 11


DONTRELLE INMAN – WR – BEARS – AVAILABLE IN 98% OF CBS LEAGUES

In his first action with the Bears he had six catches for 88 yards. He will be the go to guy for Trubisky and is worth adding in deeper leagues.

Los Angeles Rams

Waiver Wire Pickup Target for Week 11


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

Blowing up again…I think you might want to add him. He had eight catches for 171 yards with two scores. He is the Rams #1 and should be on your roster if available.

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.

Waiver Wire Pickups for Week 1 (2017)

- All players listed are available in at least 30% of CBS Leagues -

 


TARIK COHEN – RB – BEARS – AVAILABLE IN 72% OF CBS LEAGUES

Cohen was very impressive in Week 1 for the Bears with five carries for 66 yards, and eight receptions for 47 yards with a touchdown. Tarik is the clear #2 to Jordan Howard, and also the clear 3rd down receiving back. In this offense where Mike Glennon checks downs as his first read, he is going to get plenty of opportunities. He is not a large back, so he is not going to see 20 carries in a game, but he will see 10-15 touches a game and has big play ability.

 

ALEX SMITH – QB – CHIEFS – AVAILABLE IN 66% OF CBS LEAGUES

Alex Smith had what will probably be his best game of the season in Week 1, completing 28 of 35 passes for 368 yards with four touchdowns and no interceptions. Two of those touchdowns went for over 70 yards…it was the perfect game for Smith. Alex has some big play weapons in what was once an anemic offense. Smith will be a solid performer all year, but you can’t count on getting this type of production the rest of the way…so don’t overpay expecting a windfall.

 

JARED GOFF – QB – RAMS – AVAILABLE IN 85% OF CBS LEAGUES

Goff had himself a great day throwing for 306 yards with a touchdown against the Colts. The key there is that is was against the Colts, who are a very bad defense. That said, Goff was efficient completing 21 of 29 passes and did not throw an interception. The addition of Sammy Watkins helps, but rookie Cooper Kupp really helped him in Week 1, and could be a big play for him going forward.

 

COOPER KUPP – WR – RAMS – AVAILABLE IN 64% OF CBS LEAGUES

Kupp scored his first career touchdown this week, and hauled in four passes for 76 yards. He showed his downfield ability and he will see favorable matchups with defenses focusing on Sammy Watkins. If Watkins gets hurt, which is a reality, Kupp would see an increased role, and must grab for Watkins owners.

 

DESHAUN WATSON – QB – TEXANS – AVAILABLE IN 74% OF CBS LEAGUES

Watson is in as the starter for the Texans going forward, so if you are in a deep league go ahead feel free to take a flyer on the rookie. He completed 12 of 23 passes for 102 yards with a touchdown and an interception in Week 1. There will be ups and downs for him, but he is a starting quarterback.

 

DANNY AMENDOLA – WR – PATRIOTS – AVAILABLE IN 64% OF CBS LEAGUES

Amendola suffered a concussion in Week 1, but before he left he had 100 yards on six receptions. It is clear that Tom Brady has confidence in Amendola, and when healthy he is going to be a big weapon in this Patriots offense.

 

KENNY GOLLADAY – WR – LIONS – AVAILABLE IN 66% OF CBS LEAGUES

What a debut for the rookie Golladay in Week 1 with four receptions for 69 yards with two of those going for touchdowns. Both of those scores came in the fourth quarter, the first for 10 yards and the second a 45-yard strike. This kid has a ton of potential and should become a bigger part of the Lions offense as the season progresses. This is an act now player.

 

RISHARD MATTHEWS – WR – TITANS – AVAILABLE IN 35% OF CBS LEAGUES

Matthews showed this week that even with all the weapons around him, he is still going to be a threat in the Titans offense. This week he caught five passes for 71 yards. Rishard has a nice floor and his potential for big plays makes him a nice player to have for bye weeks and flex plays.

 

CHRIS CARSON – RB – SEAHAWKS – AVAILABLE IN 79% OF CBS LEAGUES

The rookie was the best running back for Seattle in Week 1 with 39 yards on six carries and one reception for 10 yards. This backfield situation is unclear, but Carson is now a player for touches on a weekly basis and Lacy is fading after five carries for three yards.

 

ALLEN HURNS – WR – JAGUARS – AVAILABLE IN 85% OF CBS LEAGUES

Allen Robinson left this week with a knee injury and that makes Allen Hurns the #1 receiver for the Jaguars. He had three receptions for 42 yards. The Jaguars are not a good offense, but the increased targets will make him a worthy add.

 

MARLON MACK – RB – COLTS – AVAILABLE IN 59% OF CBS LEAGUES

Mack matched Gore in touches this week, and while not as effective as a runner with 24 yards on 10 carries, he did score a touchdown, and should have had another. He also added a reception for 21 yards. His value will increase when Luck returns.

 

RUSSELL SHEPARD – WR – PANTHERS – AVAILABLE IN 100% OF CBS LEAGUES

Sheppard only had two receptions for 53 yards, but one was a 40-yard touchdown. He is the deep play threat for the Panthers, so he will have some chances, but he is a hit or miss pickup.

 

CHARLES CLAY – TE – BILLS – AVAILABLE IN 75% OF CBS LEAGUES

There is nothing special about Charles Clay, but Tyrod Taylor has nobody else he feels comfortable throwing the ball to. Clay hauled in four passes for 53 yards with a score in Week 1. The four for 53 is a reasonable expectation and not much more than you will get with him, but he does have touchdown potential as well. Not a bad add in deeper leagues.

 

JARED COOK – TE – RAIDERS – AVAILABLE IN 46% OF CBS LEAGUES

Cook may have finally found a place where he can flourish. In Week 1 he caught five passes for 56 yards. With Cooper and Crabtree drawing all the coverage Cook will continue to see nice matchups and give him nice opportunities for solid fantasy production.

 

TYROD TAYLOR – QB – BILLS – AVAILABLE IN 35% OF CBS LEAGUES

Tyrod does not have a lot of weapons, but he still managed 224 yards with two touchdowns, one interception and 38 yards rushing. This was against the Jets, but this is what you can expect from Taylor. He can add to his total with his rushing, and if he develops chemistry with his receivers he could become a bigger threat as the season progresses.

 

JERMAINE KEARSE – WR – JETS – AVAILABLE IN 96% OF CBS LEAGUES

It is clear that Kearse is the first option for Josh McCown. In Week 1 Jermaine had seven receptions for 59 yards. Kearse will have his best chances for fantasy success this year, but how great is that going to be in the Jets offense…like a top end Jeremy Kerley when he was a Jet.

 

AUSTIN HOOPER – TE – FALCONS – AVAILABLE IN 40% OF CBS LEAGUES

Hooper only had two receptions this week, but they went for 128 yards, including an 88-yard score. He did not see enough targets to think he will be a weekly threat, but this big play breakout should give him more opportunities and with his big play ability he will strike again.

 

C.J. FIEDOROWICZ – TE – TEXANS – AVAILABLE IN 75% OF CBS LEAGUES

Fiedorowicz is the opposite of Hooper. He is a solid plodder that will give you every week what he gave you this week: 4-46. He will give you the occasional score, but he does not have the high-end potential of Hooper.

 

GEORGE KITTLE – TE – 49ERS – AVAILABLE IN 98% OF CBS LEAGUES

The 49ers do not have a great offense, but Kittle is going to be a check down tight end with downfield ability. He had five catches for 27 yards in Week 1, but the targets and receptions are encouraging for later this season.
