Pyro original fantasy football player news.


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.

Gerald Everett

Los Angeles Rams

Higbee opens door for Everett


“Receiver Mike Thomas on Friday was suspended for the Rams’ first four games of the regular season because of a doping violation, and tight end Tyler Higbee entered into a plea agreement in connection with an incident that left a man hospitalized.”

Fantasy Goo: This could leave the door open for rookie Gerald Everett to get some major playing time right from the start. There will be plenty of hands in the pot for targets and we certainly aren’t looking for an explosive offense from the Rams, but this is something to keep an eye on as camps begin.

George Kittle

San Francisco 49ers

Sleeper Alert: Kittle


Jon Lynch and the people in San Francisco have been raving about the performance of George Kittle in pre-season practices.

Fantasy Goo: As of now Kittle would still be behind Vance McDonald in the pecking order, but keep Kittle in the back of your mind as a potential sleeper at TE in 2017. But remember - he still is a rookie TE.

Christian McCaffrey

Carolina Panthers

Rookie Slow Your Role


"McCaffrey, while not nearly as big and strong as Stewart, could be effective as a ball-carrier in a power scheme – something he showed throughout his career at Stanford. It’ll be interesting to see how the carries are divvied out week to week."

Fantasy Goo: I expect McCaffery to have numbers comparable to the above-average pass-catching backs, maybe a ceiling of 2013 & 2015 Danny Woodhead (or 2011 Jonathan Stewart), he’s being drafted way too early for redraft with a MFL10 ADP of 35 overall/ RB15.

Jonathan Stewart

Carolina Panthers

Stewart Not Done Yet


"Everyone from head coach Ron Rivera to running backs coach Jim Skipper has insisted that Stewart’s role will not change. And Stewart himself has made it clear he’s not at all concerned. The punishing 240-pound runner will continue to see the bulk of the carries."

Fantasy Goo: Fantasy Goo: With a MFL10 ADP in the 12th round Stewart is a steal right now, although the news is getting out and his ADP has started to rise since this article was released.

Derek Carr

Oakland Raiders

Get Money, Get Paid


The Raiders have locked up their QB for the future by giving him the richest contract in NFL history. Carr signed the extension for 5 years $125 million.

Fantasy Goo: We all expected Carr to be in Oakland for the foreseeable future, however there has been a history of players having down years right after inking big deals. Be on the look out for any news that implies Carr is getting complacent with his money. Otherwise, Carr is still a low end QB1 with some weekly upside.

Marquess Wilson

Chicago Bears

Jets Add Another Former Bear WR


After letting Brandon Marshall walk to the other locker room in NJ and releasing Decker, the Jets are starting to fill the void at WR with Marquess Wilson.

Fantasy Goo: Wilson isn't draft worthy as of now, but he has shown flashes in the pan with some big games. Keep him on your radar through the season as he could provide some strong weeks as bye week fill ins.

Christine Michael

Seattle Seahawks

The Asleepening: Michael to IR


Christine Michael will not be available for the Colts in 2017. He was placed on the IR.

Fantasy Goo: Robert Turbin has been getting hyped, as has their rookie Marlon Mack. With Michael out of the picture we will have a more clear idea on who will end up being the 34 year old running back's handcuff.

Eric Decker

New York Jets

Decker To Pursue Country Music Career


Nashville by far was the most exciting landing spot for the Decker's. Eric gets to play with the up and coming QB sensation, Marcus Mariota. And his wife, Jessie James gets to pursue her country music career.

Fantasy Goo: The Titans have turner their WR core from one of the worst in 2016 to potentially the best. Decker will likely play the slot and make his biggest contribution in the Red Zone, with a QB who is yet to throw a Red Zone pick in his career. Get your popcorn ready Nashville.

Eric Decker

New York Jets

Jets Release Decker


After trying to find a trade partner for Decker, the Jets have pulled the plug. Making Decker the most attractive free agent after the recent Maclin signing.

Fantasy Goo: The Jets passing attack could still be fantasy relevant as all signs point towards a season of tanking. Similar to the last few years in Jacksonville, expect the Jets to be passing heavily to Enunwa, Stewart and Anderson in negative game scripts.

Jeremy Maclin

Kansas City Chiefs

Maclin, Crab Cakes and Football


Crab cakes and football! Thanks what Jeremy Maclin is about for the next two years as he signs with the Ravens to add some depth at WR. Maclin will likely work out of the slot with Wallace an Perriman working the outsides.

Fantasy Goo: There will be plenty of balls to go around as the Ravens have led the NFL in pass attempts for the past two years, and the departures of Pitta and Smith leave another 223 vacated targets. Maclin will certainly benefit from the pass happy offense coming from a conservative KC offense that threw the ball 130 less times last season.

John Brown

Arizona Cardinals

Uh Oh - Brown Tweaks Hammy


John Brown tweaked his hamstring in Cardinals mandatory camp. Soft tissue injuries tend to linger.

Fantasy Goo: Refer to Alshon Jeffrey for how bad soft tissue injuries can linger. If John Brown is limited by this expect another disappointing season from the speedy WR who also suffers from sickle cell conditions.

Wide Receivers                 (Updated:  Thursday, Nov. 8 - 6:03PM CT)

 

1.               A.J. Green (vs. NYG)This quote from the Broncos surefire Hall-of-Fame CB, Champ Bailey, pretty much sums up Mr. A.J. Green: “He’s special. I don’t know what his ceiling is. We’ll see. I don’t know how much better he can get, but I’m going to be one of the guys watching… He’s just one of the best, you know?”  After catching seven passes for 99-yards and touchdown against Bailey and the Broncos last weekend, Green now has a touchdown in seven straight games and continues to lead all wide receivers in fantasy points per game. In the last three weeks alone, he’s given the business to supposed lock-down cornerbacks Champ Bailey, Ike Taylor (Steelers) and Joe Haden (Browns), so his dominance really knows no bounds. Basically, the man cannot be stopped. This weekend he’ll take on a Giants pass D that allows the sixth-most fantasy points per game to opposing WRs. I can’t wait to see his final stat-line come Sunday afternoon.


2.               Julio Jones (at NO) – The man formally known as the “Predator” (before shaving off his dreds) is turning it on and giving fantasy owners reason to believe again, folks. Though he’s only been targeted 11 times over the last two weeks combined, he was still able to manage two 100-yard games against a couple of pretty darn good pass defenses. The Atlanta offense has been rolling all year long and will now get to face a league-worst Saints pass defense in Week 10. Matt Ryan and his offense are going to have to score a bunch against New Orleans if they want to win, so there should be more targets than normal out there for Julio to snag. As I mentioned a couple of weeks ago, Jones has been a MUCH better receiver on the road throughout his 21-game career, putting up over 1,100 yards and 10 TDs in 11 away games versus 451 yards and three TDs in 10 home games. This one’s a no-brainer.


3.               Demaryius Thomas (at Car) – Demaryius Thomas currently sits at fourth in the league with 756 receiving yards, seventh with 16.8 yards per catch, 13th with 45 receptions and 10th in fantasy points per game. What’s funny about all those top marks is that Thomas hasn’t even hit his stride yet as he and Peyton Manning are only eight games into their career together. He’s already become one of the more trusted fantasy receivers in the game as well, as he’s only had one week so far this season without at least 75 yards or a touchdown. Carolina has actually been really good against opposing wide receivers this year, but they do have a tendency to give up the big game—and it’s usually to a bigger receiver. Chalk Thomas up for another WR1 performance this weekend.


4.               Roddy White (at NO) – To think that either Roddy White or Julio Jones will have anything but a real nice week for your fantasy team this Sunday would be absurd. In last year’s matchup between these two teams at New Orleans, Roddy had 11 catches for 127 yards while Jones came down with eight catches for 128 yards and a touchdown. This year, the Saints pass defense is even worse as they’ve allowed both the most touchdowns and fantasy points per game to opposing wide receivers in the league. However, the Saints can score as well, which is surely the most beautiful music to fantasy owners’ ears as it likely means even more passing out of Matt Ryan this weekend.


5.               Wes Welker (vs. Buf) – As you would expect from a midget NFL player around this time, Wes Welker is dealing with bumps and bruises galore, but should be no worse for the wear this weekend after enjoying a nice bye week in order to rest his old, miniature bones. Fantasy owners should have loved it as well, as Welker had just put up a couple of major stinkers in the two weeks prior. This weekend he’ll be facing off with one of his (and ours) favorite teams to go against when the Buffalo Bills come to town. Earlier this season, the Slot Machine put up nine catches for 129 yards versus the Bills secondary while last season he combined for 22 catches, 268 yards and two touchdowns against them. Being fully rested at this point, I like his chances for a big game.


6.               Reggie Wayne (at Jax, Thursday night) – So even though Wayne was targeted fewer than 10 times (9) for just the second time this season, he was still able to catch seven balls for 78 yards and a touchdown last week against a porous Miami Dolphins secondary. With Andrew Luck throwing for 433 yards in the game, you probably would have expected better numbers from a top-10 fantasy wide receiver, but it certainly wasn’t a poor showing for his owners. However, this week has a chance to be a lot better for Reggie with the Jaguars pass D being pretty well decimated right now and susceptible to the big game as is. Most of Reggie’s touchdowns come at home, but this Thursday night is looking like it could be the exception to the norm. When these two teams faced off back in Week 3, Wayne caught eight of his 15 targets for 88 yards, but ended up with just a mediocre fantasy stat-line as he was kept out of the endzone in the Jaguars lone win of the season. With Andrew Luck in a groove right now, I expect Wayne to come out much better in this one and should be worthy of fantasy numbers somewhere in the mid- to low-end WR1 range.


7.               Victor Cruz (at Cin) – Though he’s had a couple of really slow weeks for fantasy owners lately, the Meadowlands Magician should be able to bounce back with some WR1 numbers this week against the Cincinnati Bengals. The Steelers lit him up pretty hard in Week 9, but the kid is a tough SOB and came through the contest without sustaining any sort of injury worth noting. The Bengals are pretty decent defending wide receivers, but if there was one weakness you could point out in their pass defense, it would be in their efforts against the opposing team’s slot receiver. If Manning targets Cruz in the double-digits like he should in this one, I have no doubt he’ll end up with WR1 numbers for the week.


8.               Marques Colston (vs. Atl) – Marques Colston is currently on pace for career-highs in targets, receiving yards, touchdowns and most importantly—fantasy points. After a slow start to the season, Marques has pulled it together for his fantasy owners by averaging top-10 fantasy points over the last five weeks and with an inter-division matchup with the Falcons on tap, there’s no reason to believe his streak will change. Last year against Atlanta he averaged 7.5 catches for 97 yards while grabbing one touchdown in two games, numbers I can easily see him repeating with the touchdown going in his favor in this one.


9.               Vincent Jackson (vs. SD) – I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again—if there’s one thing Vincent Jackson does well in this game, it’s taking full advantage of a poor pass defense. Not that San Diego is awful by any means, but combining the facts that they’re still dealing with an injury or two and that there is no doubt they’ll have to pinch in their safeties to defend against RB Doug Martin, Jackson should have no problem being able to put up some fine WR1 numbers this weekend.  Vincent has had five great games out of eight this year with each of them coming against suspect pass Ds (Giants, Redskins, Chiefs, Saints and Raiders). I expect this week’s game to be his sixth.


10.           Eric Decker (at Car) – Eric Decker now has five straight games with a touchdown catch (seven TDs in that span) and to be honest, I’m not shocked in the slightest bit. When you consider the situation he’s in, his rise to prominence had to at least be on the radar for fantasy owners this year. The situation I’m talking about is Decker’s current role as the “WR2” in a Peyton Manning-led Denver Broncos offensive attack. When you look back at the last decade of Manning’s career, there hasn’t been a single year he didn’t get his WR2 at least recognized as a start-able option in the fantasy world and more often than not, some form of a starring role. Eric Decker is every bit as good as Reggie Wayne was years ago and better than Pierre Garcon ever was, so if you were one of the forward-thinking owners or just a guy who took a chance in your draft, kudos to you as Decker currently stands as the fifth-best wide receiver in points per game this season. Oh, and yes, he’s going to have another touchdown this week.
