James Conner

Pittsburgh Steelers

Conner Solid in Debut


Steelers rookie RB James Conner rushed 20 times for 98 yards and caught 1-of-4 targets for three yards on his preseason debut Sunday night. This was his first preseason action after being out with a shoulder injury.

Fantasy Goo: Conner is trying to earn himself the back-up role to LeVeon Bell, and he should have a role if Bell does go down at all, but duties will almost certainly be split between Conner and Fitzgerald Tousaint if that were to happen. Conner is a solid dynasty pick in the double digit rounds, especially if the Steelers don’t extend his deal prior to the start of the season.

Alvin Kamara

New Orleans Saints

Kamara Lives Up To Hype Today


“Saints rookie RB Alvin Kamara rushed 5 times for 61 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's preseason game against the Chargers. Kamara's first carry of the game was an explosive 50-yard touchdown run. He was also utilized in the passing game, catching a ball in the flat and scampering for a 20 yard gain.”

Fantasy Goo: This is all against the Chargers second and third string, so don’t get too excited, but it does appear that Kamara could contribute and make this backfield very difficult to predict from week-to-week. Kamara looks to be a very solid dynasty pick in the seventh round.

Anquan Boldin

Buffalo Bills

Boldin Retires... For Now...


Anquan Boldin left the Bills today and has informed them he is retiring
This almost definitely allows Matthews to work from the slot/flanker role, not that it really changes the Bills plans. From the glimpse of the Bills preseason game I saw, they had Boldin working outside in the X-receiver position, formerly held by Watkins. I have little doubt that Boldin knows he no longer has the physical ability to fulfil the requirements of that position, so he left.

Fantasy Goo: I still think he ends up somewhere, and will vulture enough TD’s to devalue others, but not have enough value on his own to be fantasy viable. Zay Jones is back in play for the late round flyer, and Clay is looking like a good match-up streamer at TE.

Jordan Reed

Washington Redskins

Jordan Reed (toe) Activated from PUP List


Fantasy Goo: 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. Like Gronk, with Reed you have to assume that he will not play all 16 games, but don’t shy away from Reed because when he was active in 2016 he was a top 10 TE 75% of the time.

Le'Veon Bell

Pittsburgh Steelers

Bell Lookin' To Get PAID!


“Steelers RB Le'Veon Bell will report back to team before regular season kicks off, though it remains unclear exactly when.” Bell values himself at about $15mm per year, your move Rooney.

Fantasy Goo: There is no doubt Bell is an elite RB1 when he is active, this hold-out makes me nervous. He might be staying in shape, but there is no way to really simulate game-speed without actually participating with the team. He missed 3 games last year and came in shredding defenses, but that is much different than missing camp completely.

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.

Running Backs                 (Updated:  Thursday, Nov. 15 - 6:03PM CT)

 

Arian Foster - Pyro Character

1.           Arian Foster (vs. Jax) – It wasn’t pretty, but after putting up 102 yards and a TD on 29 carries against the Bears last Sunday night, Foster now has a touchdown in 13 straight games (including playoffs) dating back to last season and in 19 of his last 20. Pretty f-in ridiculous if you ask me. Fantasy owners haven’t had this sort of weekly assurance out of their running back since the days when LaDainian Tomlinson was breaking pretty much every fantasy record in the book. This week will be no different with the Texans taking on the Jags for the second time this season. In the first game, Foster ran for 110 yards and a TD on 28 carries, but also caught a season-high six passes for 37 extra receiving yards. He’s faced them five times in his career thus far and not only did he score at least one touchdown in each of those games, but he also averaged 104.6 rushing yards per contest as well. I’d like to say that Jacksonville has a chance of stopping him this Sunday, but considering they’ve allowed the second-most touchdowns and fourth-most fantasy points to RBs this season, I’d be lying if I did.


Doug Martin - Pyro Character

2.           Doug Martin (at Car) – Alright, so Martin was slowed down a bit last weekend by a hard-nosed San Diego Chargers front-seven, but he was still able to put up 119 total yards including 51 yards on three receptions. His streak of three straight games with at least one touchdown came to an end as well, but I expect another one to be started up again this Sunday when the Bucs travel to Carolina to take on a bottom-tier Panthers rush D. In their first matchup of the season, which was also Martin’s first game of his career, the Muscle Hamster ran for 95 yards on 24 carries and caught another four balls for 23 yards. He had to wait until Week 2 to grab his first TD, but he’s had plenty since then (eight total) and seems to have developed a bit of a taste for it. Look for Martin to hit pay-dirt again and extend his streak of games with double-digit fantasy points to six this Sunday.


Stevan Ridley - Pyro Character

3.           Stevan Ridley (vs. Ind) – Ridley’s had a bit of an up-and-down, unpredictable fantasy season thus far, though I’m pretty sure I can predict what he’ll do in this one. With a 98-yard, one-touchdown performance last weekend against the Bills, Ridley is now on pace for 306 carries, 1,447 yards and 11 touchdowns on the season. After this weekend’s tilt at home with the Indianapolis Colts, I predict those numbers will rise. For that to happen, the Riddler will have to rush the ball at least 20 times for about 100 yards or more and take at least one carry into the endzone. I realize the Colts are one of the more up-and-coming teams right now, but it hasn’t been due to their rush defense as they’ve given up a couple of pretty gigantic fantasy performances thus far, a whopping 4.7 yards per rush (fourth-largest in the NFL) and allow the seventh-most fantasy points per game to RBs.


C.J. Spiller - Pyro Character

4.           C.J. Spiller (vs. Mia, Thursday night) – Even though he’s been given double-digit carries in only four of his nine games while never getting more than 18 touches in any one game, C.J. Spiller has still found a way to put up the seventh-most fantasy points per game for running backs this season. His 7.3 yards per carry is the highest YPC in the league and despite only running the ball 87 times this year, his seven runs of 20 or more yards has him tied for second in that category as well (AP has 13 in 195 carries; McCoy has 7 in 162 carries). Basically, Spiller is not only the most under-utilized threat in the entire league, but possibly the most misused player since the turn of the century! That being said, fantasy owners can finally dismantle the lynch mob because the Buffalo Bills coaching lunacy will all come to an end this Thursday night. With Fred Jackson officially being diagnosed with a concussion and ruled out for the game, owners can safely pencil Spiller into RB1 spots for the week. Yes, the Miami Dolphins rush D has been one of the better ones so far this season, but if Chris Johnson can tear them up for 126 yards and a touchdown like he did last week IN Miami, then you have to believe that Spiller can do the same at home.


Jamaal Charles - Pyro Character

5.           Jamaal Charles (vs. Cin) – Jamaal Charles finally got back on track last Monday night when he put up his third 100-yard game of the season against a stout Steelers D that had allowed just one other runner to hit the century-mark this year. He also grabbed his third touchdown of 2012 and will be in prime position to make it a fourth this weekend against a weak Bengals rush D. Out of nine games thus far, only twice has Cincinnati kept an opposing RB from rushing for a TD against them. It’s also no coincidence that they’ve only twice kept a running back from scoring double-digit fantasy points against them, so look for Charles to keep his little hot-streak going this weekend.


LeSean McCoy - Pyro Character

6.           LeSean McCoy (at Was) – I’m going to mention this one more time because I’m pretty sure this will be the week that the Philly coaching staff finally realizes the trend: In each of the Eagles three wins this season, LeSean McCoy was the main focus of the offensive game-plan and received 25-plus touches during the game. In each of Philly’s six losses, he received fewer than 25 touches. Open and shut case, plain and simple. So why do I believe the trend gets bucked this weekend? Because as we all know by now, the Eagles will be starting rookie Nick Foles at QB due to Michael Vick’s concussion. If the coaching staff has any intention of winning this game, they will have to take the pressure off Foles and let Shady McCoy do his thing. The Redskins will undoubtedly stack the front line a bit in an effort to take McCoy out of the game, but with 25-30 touches, there’s no reason to think he won’t put up close to top-five fantasy numbers this week.


Ray Rice - Pyro Character

7.           Ray Rice (at Pit, Sunday night) – While the Raiders were able to keep him pretty well in check in terms of yardage last weekend (35 rushing, 33 receiving), Rice still ran in his seventh touchdown of the season which ties him for second in the league behind Arian Foster. This week, however, will be a much tougher test going up against the Steelers as Rice has been a bit of a mixed bag against these guys throughout his career. Sometimes he’ll go off for over 100 yards and a touchdown, other times he’ll suck a lemon and rush for less than 40 yards. One of the bummers for fantasy owners here is that Rice isn’t nearly the same scoring machine on the road as he is in Baltimore, putting up just 12 total TDs in 35 road games compared to 25 TDs in 34 games at home. His saving grace, however, could be that without Roethlisberger or Antonio Brown, Pittsburgh may not be able to score either. If not, it’s possible the Ravens will want to turn this into a game of time possession using Rice to control the clock all day long. Rice has also rushed for a TD against the Steelers in each of their last three matchups, so for fantasy owners let’s hope the streak continues.


Alfred Morris - Pyro Character

8.           Alfred Morris (vs. Phi) – The Redskins gave Alfred Morris the ball 16 or more times in each of the first seven games, to which Morris responded by putting up double-digit fantasy points in six of them while averaging 13.9 fantasy points a game. However, in their last two games, Washington only gave Alfred the ball 13 times in each game and unsurprisingly saw his fantasy points dip to 13.5 points combined in the two games. They were likely just trying to get the rookie a little rest before their bye week, so now that they have, I fully expect to see his carries rise up to around the 20-mark again this weekend. Philly has a pretty good rush defense and hasn’t allowed a 100-yard rusher yet this season, but a well-rested power-back like Morris should be able to do some nice damage and possibly get into the endzone with 20 touches in this one. Also, if the Redskins defense can get the Eagles rookie QB to turn the ball over like they should be able to, Morris will have himself quite a few red-zone opportunities.


Frank Gore - Pyro Character

9.           Frank Gore (vs. Chi, Monday night) – The Bears are obviously one of the more stifling defenses against the run this season allowing just two rushing touchdowns and the third-fewest fantasy points to RBs on the season. However, Frank Gore and the 49ers dominating offense line should be pissed as all hell this Monday night after coming away with a tie at home against a beatable Rams team last Sunday. Just prior to last week’s debacle, the ‘Niners were on a bye and before that, they were doing all they could to keep Frank the Tank good and rested for a strong second-half push. Well, the second half is here now and against the Rams, the coaching staff gave Gore the most work he’d seen all season (24 touches). I expect them to do the same against the Bears this Monday as they look to gain home-field advantage for the playoffs.


Trent Richardson - Pyro Character

10.       Trent Richardson (at Dal) – Trent Richardson went into his Week 10 bye on a little bit of a roll putting up two straight 100-yard games against the San Diego Chargers and Baltimore Ravens. Now that the rookie has had a week to rest up a bit, you can bet he’ll come out of the gates roaring this Sunday as he looks to put his mark on the league in the team’s final seven games. If the Dallas Cowboys have shown to have a weak spot on defense this year, it’s been against the run as they’ve allowed a rushing touchdown in seven of nine games this season and at least one in each of their last five. Since Cleveland will have a tough time passing in this game as well, I expect to see a good 20-25 touches out of Richardson and top-ten fantasy points because of it.
