Eric Ebron

Detroit Lions

Ebron Could Use Some Luck


Colts signed TE Eric Ebron, formerly of the Lions, to a two-year contract. Coach Frank Reich called Ebron an "elite tight end."

The last time we saw Andrew Luck healthy (2016), the Colts used 2+ TE sets at the 3rd-highest rate in the NFL and had the 6th-highest target share to TEs.

Carlos Hyde

San Francisco 49ers

Hyde and Seek


Browns agreed to terms with RB Carlos Hyde, formerly of the 49ers, on a three-year, $15 million contract.

Obtaining Hyde has several trickle-down effects; first it replaces Crowell who signed with the Jets, it probably diminishes Duke Johnson’s value a bit. Hyde is a better all-around back than Crowell was and will certainly take over the goal-line work seeing that he’s got 20+ pounds on Duke. It also reduces the likelihood that Cleveland takes Saquon Barkley with the 4th pick in the draft. They will most likely look to draft a defensive player (Chubb) or trade down again.

Jerick McKinnon

Minnesota Vikings

McKinnon Goes West For Gold-Rush


49ers agreed to terms with RB Jerick McKinnon, formerly of the Vikings, on a four-year, $30 million contract.

McKinnon averaged a ho-hum 3.8 yards a carry for the Vikings and scored three rushing touchdowns. By contrast, San Francisco's former lead runner, Carlos Hyde, averaged 3.9 yards an attempt in 2017 and had eight rushing touchdowns.

It appears as though Shanahan is enamored with McKinnon's athletic metrics, but I'm not so sure he was "pounding the table" to get him. This move could push the Niner's to cut Joe Williams.

Mike Wallace

Baltimore Ravens

Eagles Keep Improving


Eagles signed WR Mike Wallace to a one-year contract.
Mike Wallace can still move posting a top five max speed among wide receivers last season. He will fill the void left by Torrey Smith as a speed vertical threat.

Terrelle Pryor

Washington Redskins

Jets Searching For Weapons


Jets agreed to terms with WR Terrelle Pryor, formerly of Washington and Cleveland.

Second year in a row on a new team doesn’t really help Pryor's cause, but I like the idea of him on the field with Teddy Bridgewater at some point. I would imagine, with some creativity, the Jets could really design some innovative gadget plays.
The Jets receiving corps really looks like a bunch of question marks at this point though, no telling what the week-to-week outcome will be with these guys.
Jermaine Kearse: 65 catches, 810 yards, 5 touchdowns (2017)
Robby Anderson: 63 catches, 941 yards, 7 touchdowns (2017)
Quincy Enunwa: 58 catches, 857 yards, 4 touchdowns (2016)
Terrelle Pryor: 77 catches, 1007 yards, 4 touchdowns (2016)

Carlos Henderson

Denver Broncos

Sleeper Watch


Broncos coach Vance Joseph said the team is "counting on" Carlos Henderson making an impact in 2018.

If you are paying attention to Staggs projections there is plenty of opportunity for Henderson to step into a solid number of targets in the slot. Henderson was hindered by injury and awful QB play last year. Being drafted in the 18th round or later in best-ball leagues, Henderson is the late round flyer that should be on your radar.

Ben Watson

Baltimore Ravens

Watson Returns To Big Easy


Saints signed TE Ben Watson, formerly of the Ravens, to a one-year contract.

Watson had 74 catches on 110 targets for 825 yards and 6 TD’s when he was with the Saints in 2015. After missing 2016 he had a pretty good year with Baltimore last year despite an anemic offense, with 61 catches on 79 targets for 522 yards and 4 TD’s. He’s not a bad late round flyer TE. He’s basically free right now, but I expect by the time the season starts he’ll be being drafted within the top 20 at the position.

Jeff Janis

Green Bay Packers

Janis Truthers Challenged


Browns officially signed former Packers’ WR Jeff Janis.
The combine superstar never amounted to anything in Green Bay, I highly doubt Cleveland is the place for him to finally break-out.

Thomas Rawls

Seattle Seahawks

Jets Sign Rawls


Rawls had five RB1 games in 2015, one in 2016, and has been a disappointment since. He’s not worth your time in fantasy, but he could cause enough disruption in the Jets backfield to cut any upside we might have hoped for from Isaiah Crowell.

Allen Robinson

Jacksonville Jaguars

Coo coo ca choo Mr. Robinson


Bears signed WR Allen Robinson, formerly of the Jaguars, to a three-year, $42 million contract.

This is a great move for Robinson and Chicago. Nagy’s offense and the young QB, Trubiski, should benefit Robinson at least as much as Bortles did, and Chicago gets the top WR in free agency.
Everyone on the team will be in a new scheme so there will be an adjustment, but as they start to gel we should see a big second half. Robinson’s recovery from a torn ACL doesn’t scare me away from drafting him in the late third/early fourth, his current MFL10 ADP is 43 overall while his Draft app ADP is 59.9. I expect Robinson to be somewhere in the range of 75 receptions, for 1100 yards and 8 TD’s.

Sammy Watkins

Los Angeles Rams

KC Building Strong Air Attack


Chiefs signed Sammy Watkins, formerly of the Rams, to a three-year, $48 million contract.

I’m a big Sammy truther so getting him in the 5th or 6th round is a pure power move. His current Draft app ADP of 87.1 is an absolute steal, his MFL10 ADP of 69.5 is still a great value in my opinion. There are quite a few options for high targets in KC so I don’t expect him to see the 128 targets he saw his rookie year, but he should definitely see more than the 70 he saw last year. He’ll have an entire offseason to work with the near-rookie QB, and at age 25 he should have enough burst left to have a 70 catch, 1050 yd, 8TD line. For his career he has 16 receptions on 30 targets for 12 TD’s in the Red Zone, and 9 receptions on 13 targets, for 8 TD’s inside the opponents 10. He should be the exact WR the Chiefs need to get over the hump. As a team the Chiefs were 34/75 for 13 TD’s in the Red-Zone last year and 12/24 for 10 TD inside the 10.

Kirk Cousins

Washington Redskins

Vikings Like That


Kirk Cousins plans to sign a three-year, fully-guaranteed contract from the Minnesota Vikings on Thursday. The deal is believed to be for around $86 million, and reports are it will be fully-guaranteed, a landmark for an NFL free agent.

Should be a lateral move for Kirk as far as fantasy, better WR’s, but fewer passes thrown in this offense. A healthy Dalvin Cook should be able to run out the clock if they are up in the second half of games and take the ball out of Cousins hands near the end zone. It should also help the overall efficiency of the offense so all in all it increases his floor, but cuts any garbage-time production we’ve seen with Washington. Kyle Rudolph becomes a big benefactor here, Cousins loves his TE, especially near the end-zone.

Case Keenum

Minnesota Vikings

Denver Makes Case


Broncos signed QB Case Keenum, formerly of the Vikings, to a two-year, $36 million contract.

Well, I was hoping for more than a bridge QB for my favorite WR (D. Thomas), but this is a definite upgrade from the three stooges Denver put behind center last year.

LeGarrette Blount

Philadelphia Eagles

Detroit Sparks Up Blount


The Lions signed free agent RB LeGarrette Blount to a 1-year deal worth $4.5M. He’s back with Matt Patricia, as the New England ties are strong.

The Lions have needed a true goal-line/power-back for years. I expect Blount to get between 150-200 touches and all the short-yardage carries. Detroit’s offense doesn’t really fit what Blount brings to the table, but I expect Patricia will have some influence over how the offense will operate from here-on-out.

Cleveland Browns

Money Ball: The Sequel


Hate to start out the offseason with the Cleveland Browns, but they are makin’ moves!
Browns acquired: Tyrod Taylor, Jarvis Landry, Damarious Randall
Browns gave up: 2018 3rd-round pick (No. 65), 2018 4th-round pick, 2019 7th-round pick, DeShone Kizer

Building with experienced quality performers that have something to prove, by selling inconsequential draft picks is exactly what Sashi Brown was building up for. It’s a shame he won’t be around to reap the rewards, but these are quality moves for a win-now mentality.

Tyrod Taylor

Buffalo Bills

Hue Looks To TyGoat


Browns left tackle Joe Thomas, who's pondering his future, is a fan of Tyrod Taylor and has said so on the ThomaHawk Show podcast.

Tyrod is just one season removed (2016) from being the QB11 in average fantasy ppg, including seven 20+ point weeks and six 15+ point weeks. Given the current talent on the O-line and skill position weapons he could improve on those numbers. He has the potential to be this year’s Alex Smith, definitely heading my late-round (12+) QB picks now.

Deshone Kizer

Cleveland Browns

Packers Get In On The Fun


The Packers have traded for QB DeShone Kizer from the Browns to Green Bay.

This is the best possible scenario for Kizer, who was thrown into the fire last season. Getting the chance to develop and learn behind the best in the business is the best chance he has for longevity.

Torrey Smith

Philadelphia Eagles

On The Move Again


The Eagles trade WR Torrey Smith to the Panthers for CB Daryl Worley. Torrey Smith could fill the old Ted Ginn role which makes this fairly interesting. Stagg Party says it’s more of a boost for Cam than Torrey himself.

This is an absolute perfect fit, someone who isn’t going to demand the ball, but can take the top off a defense while McCaffrey, Olsen, and Cam work underneath. Torrey is looking like a great late-round flyer.

DeMarco Murray

Tennessee Titans

Henry Hype Train Has Clear Track


DeMarco Murray was released by the Titans.
No surprise here, expect Derick Henry to be a lead back with 250+ touches, but they will bring in someone that will play the third-down, pass-catching role out of the backfield. I wouldn’t be surprised if they sign someone like Jerick McKinnon or Rex Burkhead, or even Darren Sproles or Charles Sims. There are also plenty of options in the NFL draft, Henry won’t be a true “Bell Cow.”

Marquise Goodwin

San Francisco 49ers

The Name Says It All


Marquise Goodwin and the 49ers have agreed to a 3yr extension worth $20.3M & 10M guaranteed.

Shanahan has found his big-play threat at a reasonable price. Goodwin caught 56 balls for 962 yards last season, but only had two TD’s. None of his six longest plays (33+ yards) were from Garoppollo so it leads me to believe they will still be looking for a top of the line WR, even with Garcon coming back from injury.

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.
