Austin Seferian-Jenkins

New York Jets

ASJ Ready to Play?


Jets TE Will Tye (illness) is listed as questionable for Week 3 leaving Austin Seferian-Jenkins as the only healthy tight end with Jordan Leggett (doubtful, knee) and Eric Tomlinson (elbow) sidelined. Tye should play, but his status is going to lead to a larger workload for ASJ in his first game back.

Fantasy Goo: I’m buying into the renewed AS-J hype, dude is just a freak athlete that can change a game. He is also the only real option other than Kearse and McCown loves a TE. I believe I’m higher on him than any other expert so you might want to take this with a grain of salt, might be a week early on the hype train.

Ben Watson

Baltimore Ravens

Target Monster


Ravens TE Maxx Williams (ankle) has been ruled out for Week 3. Ravens WR Michael Campanaro (knee) is listed as questionable for Week 3 against Jacksonville.

Fantasy Goo: Ben Watson caught 8-of-8 targets for 91 yards last week, Maxx Williams also caught 4 passes on 4 targets. Flacco loves his TE’s, Watson should be the stream TE of the week with Maxx out, but Flacco needs to target him in the end-zone like Brees did two years ago.

Alshon Jeffery

Philadelphia Eagles

Big Week Potential


The Giants will have to wait until Sunday morning to see if their top cornerback will suit up against the Eagles. Janoris Jenkins is in danger of missing his second straight game, with an ankle injury, and will be a game-time decision against the Eagles. Jenkins is listed as questionable, and hasn’t practiced all week, though he is scheduled to be a limited participant during a short session on Saturday.

Fantasy Goo: If Jenkins is out Alshon Jeffery becomes a must start in all formats, he’ll feast on Eli Apple who moves from slot CB to the outside. That also leaves a wide-open lane for Ertz to put up WR2 type numbers. Making him a viable flex play on DK if you are looking to spend up elsewhere.

Derrick Henry

Tennessee Titans

Henry Begins Take-Over


Derrick Henry is expected to get a "significant workload" regardless of whether or not DeMarco Murray (questionable, hamstring) plays against the Seahawks in Week 3. Murray did get in a limited practice session on Friday, but even if he is active Henry out-touched him 14-10 in last week's win over the Jags while racking up a career-high 92 rushing yards.

Fantasy Goo: It's not a great match-up for Henry against Seattle, but his workload should be enough to consider starting him in all formats. If Murray is out Henry becomes a solid lock-it-in starter, that’s why he was going in the single-digit rounds in most drafts. If you have lazy owners in your league offer a trade for Henry and try to sell Murray while you have a chance.

Green Bay Packers

Targets Up for Grabs


Randall Cobb (chest) is listed as doubtful for Week 3 against the Bengals.
This should move Jordy Nelson into the slot with Geronimo Allison and Davante Adams as the Packers' outside receivers versus Cincinnati. Despite the Questionable tag, Nelson is fully expected to play against the Bengals after missing almost all of Week 2 with what he deemed a "charley horse." We can consider Cobb as "week to week."

Fantasy Goo: With the Packers target leader Randall Cobb (shoulder) listed as doubtful, Nelson should be locked and loaded into fantasy lineups as a WR1. Many DFS analysts are also eyeing Adams for a break-out game and I’ve seen Allison being scooped up in several dynasty/deep roster leagues.

New England Patriots

Pats Injury Report Always a Long List


Rex Burkhead (ribs) is out for Week 3 against the Texans. Chris Hogan (knee) and Amendola are questionable. Hogan was limited by a knee injury at practice this week but his status for Sunday has never been in doubt.

Fantasy Goo: Looks like Gillislee and Hogan should be solid plays this week. With Burkhead out both are in line to benefit greatly, Amendola could cut into Hogan just enough to knock him out of flex range though if he ends up playing.

Ezekiel Elliott

Dallas Cowboys

At Least Two More Weeks of Zeke


The Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals has set a date for a hearing in the Zeke Elliott case: Oct. 2.
It will be two weeks before the court of appeals even hears the arguments from both sides. This thing could certainly get strung out and the suspension could come next season.

Fantasy Goo: If you have him you’re going to have to ride this out all season. His schedule eases some after week 4 so if the court denies the plea from the NFL you are going to reap rewards that you expected when you drafted him. Something in my gut tells me that he will serve some sort of suspension this year though, either way you’ll never get fair value for him in a trade and my gut feeling could just be because I’m a Giants fan. I don’t get the sense that it’s worth handcuffing him at this point either, just because we can’t be sure who the handcuff is yet.

Sam Bradford

Minnesota Vikings

Sam Bradford (knee) Out for Sunday


Sam Bradford‘s knee could be a real problem. The Vikings quarterback is not expected to play on Sunday. Bradford will get a second opinion on his left knee from Dr. James Andrews, on Friday. Whenever I hear Dr. Andrews name red flags go up, because it always seems to mean more surgery, but Andrews has performed Bradford’s first two ACL surgeries, so he’s quite familiar with his medical history.

Fantasy Goo: Bradford being out is definitely a down-grade for Diggs, Thielen, and Rudolph with Keenum throwing the rock. Theilen gets the largest drop, averaging 9 more PPR points per game with Bradford in.

Jimmy Graham

Seattle Seahawks

Jimmy Graham (ankle) DNP Thursday.


That makes it two missed practices in a row and he's shaping up to be very questionable for Week 3 against the Titans. The Seahawks have listed him on the injury report with an ankle injury, but the team did say he banged his knee in Week 2. If Graham can't play, Luke Wilson would likely fill in while the Seahawks run with more three-wide sets.

Fantasy Goo: Whenever Graham is out you have to look for Tyler Locket to get more targets. It’s only a five game sample, but Lockett averages six more PPR points per game with Graham out.Pete Carroll came out Friday and said Graham, listed as questionable, should be fine for Sunday.

Chris Johnson

Arizona Cardinals

Johnson Back for Arizona


Cardinals coach Bruce Arians expects Chris Johnson's carries to increase in Week 3. Chris Johnson rushed 11 times for 44 yards in the Cardinals' Week 2 win over the Colts, out-playing Kerwynn Williams. It appears as though he is ready to run with starting duties during David Johnson's absence.

Fantasy Goo: We shouldn't expect more than an RB3 production, but he is worth scooping up in leagues where he remains un-owned (admittedly, probably not many). I’m looking to make some trades to clear roster space and grab him, bye weeks will be coming soon and he could end up with 15-20 carries some weeks.

Chris Thompson

Washington Redskins

Thompson Flashes


Thompson only had three carries, but two of them went for scores, including a 61-yard scamper. He finished with six touches for 106 yards and two scores. Rob Kelley could miss time with the injury and Thompson is lightening in a bottle.

Fantasy Goo: Thompson is the back to own in PPR leagues, his floor is solid with the passing downs work and he will probably average five carries a game if Kelley (ribs) is out.

Chris Carson

Seattle Seahawks

Seattle Backfield Jumble


Carson was the man at running back for the Seahawks, running the ball 20 times for 93 yards, and he caught one pass for 7 yards to give him 100 total yards on the day. Lacy is a non-factor, and Rawls does not look like he will be able to keep Carson from getting the Lion share of carries going forward.

Fantasy Goo: Carson will probably be the number one waiver add in your league, and if you have the number one pick you NEED to add Carson now.

D'Onta Foreman

Houston Texans

The Foreman Is On The Job


The Texans want to get Foreman more involved in the offense, and this week he had 12 carries for 40 yards. He is going to be in a 60/40 split with Lamar Miller, but there is upside if Miller goes down. His workload should only increase as the season moves along.

Fantasy Goo: If he’s still available, if you have space on your roster, and if you can wait a few weeks for him to take even more of the role, then this is your guy to grab. Foreman could emerge as the Texans primary back by the end of the year.

Rashard Higgins

Cleveland Browns

They Call Him "Hollywood"


Browns placed WR Corey Coleman on injured reserve with a broken hand. Coleman underwent surgery on his broken right hand Monday. Higgins played 54-of-71 snaps against the Ravens, 12 more than Kenny Britt. He also turned 11 targets into seven catches for 95 yards. He was just promoted off the practice squad on Saturday, so he could be a one hit wonder.

Fantasy Goo: Normally I would say to just put him on your watch list, but he could emerge into what we thought Kenny Britt would be. Britt is playing like he doesn’t give a crap right now, which is giving Higgins opportunity and with Coleman out for at least eight weeks there might not be anyone else to throw to.

Will Fuller

Houston Texans

Strong Out, Fuller In


Will Fuller (collarbone) returned to practice on Monday. It's a potential sign Fuller could return for Week 3. The Houston Chronicle reported in early August that Fuller would likely miss "2-3 months," but Fuller is an elite athlete in optimal condition, and he is capable of beating a lengthy timetable like that. The Texans also placed WR Jaelen Strong on waivers and the Jaguars have claimed him.

Fantasy Goo: It’s too bad the Texans still don’t have a QB. Fuller could add a valuable weapon for Watson, but I don’t see Watson being a productive QB that can maintain two WR’s with weekly fantasy value. Keep Fuller on the watch list just in case Watson proves he can produce or they shift to a free agent QB.

A.J. Green

Cincinnati Bengals

Green looking forward to Green Bay


A.J. Green has struggled to get going this season, with 10 receptions for 141 yards and no touchdowns. This week he faces a Packers defense that could be without Mike Daniels and Ahmad Brooks. Julio Jones had 108 yards against the Packers last week, and without the pass rush of Daniels Green should be able to make more plays downfield this week. The Bengals are looking for their first touchdown of the season, and Dalton wants it to be a passing touchdown to A.J.

Le'Veon Bell

Pittsburgh Steelers

Bell looking for a breakthrough against the Bears


Le'Veon has only totaled 138 yards with no scores through the first two weeks. Owners should be feeling good about his matchup this week against the Bears. Chicago is already without LB Jerrell Freeman, and last week lost his replacement Nick Kwiatkowski. The Bears are a mess and Bell should be able to exploit those weaknesses for big gains this week.

Carolina Panthers

Carolina In My Mind


Implied Team Totals: Panthers 25, Bills 18
Cam looked rusty last week, he was literally shaking his arm after passes like there was rust in his shoulder joint. Christian McCaffrey out-snapped Jonathan Stewart 70% to 43% in Week 1, but Stewart out-touched McCaffrey 20 to 18, and Stewart scored the backfield’s lone TD on a red-zone reception where McCaffrey served as a decoy. As Carolina is favored by a touchdown at home, this sets up as another positive-script game where Stewart can log a similar if not superior workload to his dynamic rookie counterpart, giving both Panthers backs RB2/flex appeal. I don’t like any of the receivers, Benjamin is only ranked within the startable range because of the implied opportunity and what should be a prime match-up.

Buffalo Bills

Buffalo @ Carolina


Implied Team Totals: Panthers 25, Bills 18
Tyrod is a solid sit for me on the road against a strong Carolina defense that silenced the 49ers on the road last week. McCoy will get 25 or so carries so I’m starting him in season-long, but his upside is capped so he’s a fade in DFS this week. Charles Clay led Buffalo in targets and caught his eighth TD in 29 games as a Bill. Last year’s Panthers allowed the league’s second-most fantasy points to tight ends, a position to which their Cover-3 zone can be vulnerable.

New England Patriots

New England @ New Orleans


Implied Team Totals: Patriots 31, Saints 25
Last year the Saints allowed the second-most points (454) and the most passing yards (4380), the Superdome is now known as football’s version of Coors Field for its elevation of offensive output. My top DFS plays are Brady, of course, Cooks in a revenge game, Gronk if you are ok with paying up at TE, and the way to get Gronk in a DK line-up is to play James White at RB2 or flex. White is cheap, and played the most snaps of the RB’s last week, he could have around 5 receptions for around 35-50yds and cross your fingers for a TD.

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.
