Ted Ginn Jr

New Orleans Saints

Must Be Smokin' Snead


Per source with knowledge of the situation, Saints WR Ted Ginn Jr won't play today and will be ruled inactive. Expect WRs TommyLee Lewis and Willie Snead to play a bigger role.

Fantasy Goo: Snead has seen a huge uptick in first team practice snaps this week, he’s been a huge disappointment this season after a break-out year last season. I would not stream Snead for your playoff match-up, the offense is powerful, but unpredictable. Lewis and Brandon Coleman could vulture targets and TD’s at any moment.

Jay Ajayi

Philadelphia Eagles

QB Downgrade Equals RB Upgrade


Ajayi can do more than he has since the Eagles acquired him from the Dolphins on Halloween. And with quarterback Carson Wentz done for the season and Nick Foles tossed into the cauldron, the Eagles will likely need additional carries from the 24-year-old tailback if they are to stoke their chances of securing home field throughout the playoffs.

Fantasy Goo: Ajayi could shred the Giants if he gets the touches, but he hasn’t scored a TD since his 46-yarder against the Bronco’s in his first game with the Eagles. It’s not like the other Eagles backs have been producing TD’s either, Wentz had been that dominant. I have no doubt they will lean on the running game this week, I’m high on Ajayi.

Jermaine Gresham

Arizona Cardinals

Ricky Business


The AZ Cardinals have downgraded TE Jermaine Gresham (illness) to OUT for Sunday’s game against Washington.

Fantasy Goo: Seals-Jones is a desperate move if you’re in the semi-finals of your playoffs, he’s only a streaming option if you’ve been streaming all year. He’s had a couple of big games, but there’s no floor. He could end up with 10 targets or he could end up with none.

Giovani Bernard

Cincinnati Bengals

Flying Solo


Joe Mixon did not pass concussion protocol and will not play Sunday against the Vikings.

Fantasy Goo: Bernard will see a solid workload, but it’s going to take a big play for him to have any real fantasy value. Minnesota did give up that big play to Jonathan Stewart last week, but I don’t see that happening again.

Devonta Freeman

Atlanta Falcons

Bell-Cow Workload


Falcons running back Tevin Coleman, who’s in the NFL concussion protocol, was declared out of the Tampa Bay game on Saturday by coach Dan Quinn.

Fantasy Goo: Tampa has been solid against the run at home, but a complete sieve on the road. They are at home this week, but they haven’t faced a RB like Freeman at home this year. Freeman has traditionally been a better performer at home, but I have no doubt he’ll put up RB1 numbers with action in the passing game.

Dion Sims

Chicago Bears

Honorable Mention


Bears TE Adam Shaheen (chest), who is listed as questionable against the Lions, is not expected to play, source said. Chicago goes in a little short-handed.

Fantasy Goo: I like Sims as a streamer if you’re desperate, he always seems to put up numbers when he’s the only option. I rarely start a streamer in the early set of games, there will be safer options tomorrow.

Stefon Diggs

Minnesota Vikings

Diggin' It and Thielen It


The Vikings have played five out of their last six games on the road. They return home this week to face a banged-up Bengals defense and Kyle Rudolph is out. Stefon Diggs has played in four home games this year. He has hit 27.7 and 40.3 on DK in two of them.

Fantasy Goo: Diggs has never played a game without Rudolph in the line-up, so we don’t really know how this will affect his targets. Cincinnati has been without both starting CB’s, but may get Dre Kirkpatrick back this week. I have Diggs as a WR2/Flex this week with Thielen being a solid WR1, must start.

Robert Woods

Los Angeles Rams

Back in Action


Seahawks Weeks 1-9 (With Kam Chancellor and Richard Sherman)
Passing success rate allowed: 2nd
Explosive pass rate allowed:19th
Weeks 11-14 (Without Kam Chancellor and Richard Sherman)
Passing success rate allowed: 22nd
Explosive pass rate allowed: 24th

Fantasy Goo: Robert Woods comes back this week, so I’m moving Watkins way down. Watkins production went up about 70% across the board with Woods out. Kupp’s production went up with Woods out as well, but even with Woods in the line-up he was second on the team in targets. Woods might need to knock some rust off after being out for three weeks so I have Woods and Kupp in the WR3/Flex range, and feel safe with starting either one.

Leonard Fournette

Jacksonville Jaguars

Jag's Starting JAG's


Jaguars RB Leonard Fournette missed his third straight day of practice today due to his quad injury. No practice all week.

Fantasy Goo: I expect Yeldon and Ivory to split the touches if Fournette doesn’t play, neither seems to be worth starting, but Houston has given up five rushing TD’s in the past three games (one to a QB).

Jordan Howard

Chicago Bears

Here Comes the BOOM!


Detroit is allowing 3.4 offensive touchdowns per game over the past five weeks, the most in the league, they have also allowed a rushing touchdown in eight straight games. Jordan Howard is tied for the most runs of 10 or more yards (30) on the season. Howard has had 12 100-yard rushing games in his first two seasons and he wasn’t even the starter the first four games last year.

Fantasy Goo: Howard is really boom-bust, he has yet to pair together fantasy RB1 weeks this year. He had a huge game last week and his match-up this week is just too sweet to think that he won’t be able to break this trend.

Zach Ertz

Philadelphia Eagles

In the Clear


Zach Ertz has cleared the concussion protocol and will play this week.

He’s pretty much ranked as the number three TE across the industry, but I think he lacks the boom upside we might think he has against the Giants. His production with Foles, back in 2013, was only slightly lower than his production this year. In the first nine games the Giants gave up a TD to a TE in every game. In the last four games the Giants have only given up one, to Jason Witten, who has historically torched the Giants, it was his only catch of the game. They even managed to keep Kelce out of the end-zone, I believe a couple of OPI’s were involved there and Kelce did get 109 yards receiving though. I believe Ertz is a prime candidate for 5/50/1, but I don’t expect him to win you your week or be worth paying up for in DFS.

Nick Foles

Philadelphia Eagles

Not Skipping a Beat


Carson Wentz is out for the season, and maybe some of Next season with a torn ACL. Over their first 24 games Foles has more TD’s, fewer INT’s, and more yards that Wentz has in his first 24 games. Foles was a Pro Bowler who threw 27 TD & 2 INT with the Eagles in 2013. The last time Nick Foles faced the Raiders, he threw for 7 TDs.

Fantasy Goo: I’m not saying there won’t be an adjustment period and I’m not trying to say the Eagles are better-off without Wentz, but Foles is a very capable back-up and if he can stir-up that 2013 magic the Eagles should be fine. Normally I’d say wait a week before starting Foles or any of the skill position players on the Eagles, but with it being week 15 and the match-up being a weak Giants defense, I’m starting them all as you usually would.

Lamar Miller

Houston Texans

Miller a Solid Cash Play on DFS


Miller will face the 49'ers, who according to Football Outsiders ranks 30th in Defensive DVOA.

Fantasy Goo: In the last 3 weeks, Miller is 6th in total carries. In cash games, you want opportunity. Considering the 49'ers run one of the fastest paced offenses in the league, his carries, already in the top 10 in recent weeks, should see an increase.

Giovani Bernard

Cincinnati Bengals

Gio Free Square


Gio is gets the starting role today as there as Mixon is out.

Fantasy Goo: The man is only $3100 on Draft Kings. The Baengals are home and 6 point favorites. The game script could easily favor the ground game, which means Gio should get plenty of touches to surpass 3X value.

Zach Ertz

Philadelphia Eagles

Still in Concussion Protocol


Eagles still want to look at TE Zach Ertz and his concussion on Sunday, but he is considered doubtful for game vs. Rams even though he is listed as questionable.

Fantasy Goo: Trey Burton has been a big name all week, going for 4 receptions for 42 yards after Ertz’s exit last week. Burton is a versatile athlete, but not a premier TE like Ertz. His good numbers came against Denver which is giving up the second most points to the TE position this year. Philly faces the Rams this week who are sixth best in fantasy points allowed. I'm not considering Burton a good stream this week.

Ameer Abdullah

Detroit Lions

Pain in the Neck


Detroit Lions RB Ameer Abdullah (neck, questionable) is not expected to play today, source said, though it's more for play than injury reasons. Detroit is trying other players to improve the run game.

Fantasy Goo: This isn’t surprising given Abdullah’s disappointing performances over the past year and more.
Tion Green led the team with 51 rushing yards in his debut last week, and figures to be the Lions' ball-carrier Sunday in Tampa. Pass-catcher Theo Riddick will see reps as well and I expect that he has a safer floor especially in PPR.

Chris Hogan

New England Patriots

Primed for Monday Return


Hogan has been out the past four weeks and has basically caused me a playoff berth in one of my dynasty leagues. If you’re still in it I’d get him into the line-up. With Gronk out Hogan should see a solid number of targets.

Amari Cooper

Oakland Raiders

It's A Trap


Source says, if Cooper can cut at full speed and start and stop in pregame workout, they will use him on a limited basis or “pitch count.” Calls it a “very dramatic turnaround” from what team was expecting 48 hours ago.

Fantasy Goo: Total decoy move, I’m not starting him even if he is healthy enough to play. Cooper went for 11/210/2 when he faced the Chiefs in Week 7, so it is tempting to put him in, but you’ve got to figure that the Raiders want him in there just so the Chiefs have to play coverage his way and leave Crabtree in single coverage.

Todd Gurley

Los Angeles Rams

Lower Expectations This Week


Todd Gurley has just 1 TD over his last four games, but still has finished as RB6, RB16, RB8, and RB7 in those games. The TD came in the RB16 week. Insane usage AND efficiency from Gurley.

Fantasy Goo: He’s been the most consistent RB1 for the entire season, which is a nice turn-around from a disappointing 2016. He faces the Eagles this week who are second-best in fantasy points allowed to the RB position this year. I think we have to start him, but expectations must be lowered. He’s a fade in DFS this week.

Josh Gordon

Cleveland Browns

Balls Flying Everywhere


Per @rotounderworld, 70% of DeShone Kizer's pass attempts have been catchable balls, the third-lowest rate among quarterbacks with at least 100 attempts this season. Winds expected near 20 mph in Cleveland this week.

Fantasy Goo: I would not consider starting Kizer at any point this year, but the key question here is will he be able to get the ball anywhere near Josh Gordon. He was only able to catch 4 of the 11 balls thrown in his direction last week, but he was going against one of the top corners in the league. He was still able to rack up 85 yards, and had over 200 air-yards, so we can be confident the opportunity will be there. If I had him anywhere I would most likely start him and will probably have him ranked as a mid-range WR2.

WR Player Rankings – Week 2

 

 

QB Rankings  RB Rankings  TE Rankings

 

Wide Receivers

 

 

1.               Calvin Johnson (vs KC) – Let’s see, how many reasons are there to have Megatron as my top receiver heading into Week Two… 1) He’s the most freakish WR in the game.  2) Matthew Stafford is currently healthy and looking like a stud.  3) The Chiefs just gave up four passing TDs to the Buffalo Bills.  4) The Chiefs best defensive back/player, Eric Berry, just went down for the season.  5) Calvin has scored a TD in every single home-opener of his career (five TDs in four games).  Anything else?

 

2.               Andre Johnson (@ Mia) – Besides the fact that Andre is probably the second freakiest wide receiver the NFL has to offer, the Miami defense just got destroyed for 517 yards passing by Tom Brady and the Patriots last weekend.  I‘m not saying that Houston will be able to keep up that kind of pace, but Andre will certainly do his part in keeping them pretty close.  Besides that, in four career games against the Dolphins, Andre has averaged 7.5 catches for 106.5 yards and 0.75 TDs.

 

3.               Mike Wallace (vs Sea) – Everyone on the Steelers should be getting into the fantasy scoring column this weekend against the Seahawks, and you can be sure Wallace’s numbers will be amongst the best of them.  His speed out there in the field is blinding and when combined with his strong 6’0”, 200-pound frame, he’s one tough cookie to stop.  Pittsburgh might take out a little Week One frustration here, and running up the score might be one way of doing it.

 

4.               Vincent Jackson (@ NE) – I don’t care how poor V-Jax’s numbers were in the Chargers first game, he’s going to light it up this Sunday.  If Chad Henne and the Dolphins can throw for over 400 yards against the Patriots, Philip Rivers has a chance to as well.  V-Jax has basically the same body frame as Brandon Marshall (6’5, 230-pounds compared to 6’4”, 230-pounds), so if Marshall can put up 139 yards against New England, so can V-Jax… only I think Jackson scores at least one TD here as well.

 

5.               Greg Jennings (@ Car) – Aaron Rodgers and the Packers passing game is pretty much unstoppable at this point with at least a good portion of that credit going out to Greg Jennings.  You can tell he is Rodgers’ favorite receiver by the fact that he not only got Jennings the most targets in Week One, but also made sure to get him the first touchdown of the season as well.  My guess is that Green Bay tries to go ahead real early against the Panthers to assure themselves a victory, which could mean some serious passing/scoring in the first half.  Jennings will be a nice part of that.

 

6.               DeSean Jackson (@ Atl) – After three years in the league, it looks like the Eagles might finally be looking to target DeSean Jackson on offense the way he should be.  Last week against the Rams, D-Jax caught six balls for 102 yards and one TD on 12 targets, the second most he’s seen in his career.  Though the increase may have partly been due to Philly’s fear that Jeremy Maclin wasn’t quite ready to play, it’s also possible that Jackson’s work in the off-season showed itself and got him open out on the field.  Indoors in Atlanta, the kid could be lethal this Sunday.

 

7.               Miles Austin (@ SF) – The Cowboys can’t afford to go 0-2 to start off the season, especially in a tough NFC East, so look for them to try and get a win in the best way they know how… through the air.  Even if they were 1-0 right now, they’d likely be tossing the ball around a bunch anyway due to the 49ers stingy rush D.  If Dez Bryant is still the slightest bit banged up, watch for Austin to go ballistic in this one as Romo targets him 10-15 times.

 

8.               Mike Williams – TB (@ Min) – Believe it or not, Mike Williams will have a better chance to do more damage if the Bucs rush the ball more against the Vikings as opposed to hitting the two-minute offense early in the game like they did last week.  Williams DID end up with four catches on 10 targets including a touchdown and 50 yards receiving, but his numbers will be way better than that if Tampa draws the defense in to defend against Blount.  The Bucs will do so to the delight of Williams’ fantasy owners.

 

9.               Larry Fitzgerald (@ Was) – Fitz can’t escape being a double-team target for opposing defenses, but if he’s lucky, the Redskins will try to shadow him with DeAngelo Hall all day long in single coverage.  If they do, Larry is going to eat him alive.  If not, Fitz will still get double-digit targets and likely have a pretty good game anyway.

 

10.           Santonio Holmes (vs Jax) – Santonio might end up a game-time decision this weekend, so make sure you check the news coming out of the Jets camp before inserting him into your starting lineup.  If he's scheduled to play, however, get him in there immediately.  Holmes was targeted 10 times on Sunday against the Cowboys which he turned into six catches for 70 yards.  Sanchez loves throwing to him and sooner rather than later, Holmes is going to break off a huge game.  Jacksonville’s pass D was one of the worst in the world last season and didn’t get a whole hell of a lot better in the off-season, so this could be the game he does it.

 

11.           Hakeem Nicks (vs StL) – Like the Cowboys, the Giants can’t afford to go 0-2 to start off the year in this tough NFC East division, so look for them to do whatever it takes to win this game.  Nicks is dealing with a bum knee right now, but if he can play, he’ll play, and he’ll go all out against a banged up Rams secondary.  The Giants will turn to the run quite a bit in this one which should draw the defense in.  If that happens, Nicks will exploit it and have a couple of gigantic plays in this game.  However, make sure you check the news out of New York before getting him in your starting lineup this Monday night.

 

12.           Anquan Boldin (@ Ten) – Finally, the ‘Quan we all love to see is back.  It took a year of getting in tune with Flacco, plus a little more speed in the offense and Vonta Leach leading the way for Ray Rice, but he’s back and here to stay.  Against a Tennessee secondary that was one of the worst in the league last year and just allowed Luke McCown to lead the Jags to a victory against them, Boldin should be able to carve ‘em up for a nice fantasy day.

 

13.           Santana Moss (vs Ari) – Going back to the beginning of last season, Moss looks to be as rejuvenated out there as any 30-year old receiver in the league.  Last week he had six catches for 76 yards on eight targets from Sexy Rexy, but I expect better than that against a piss-poor Arizona defense this weekend.  Feel comfortable with him as a solid WR2 play with upside this Sunday.

 

14.           Brandon Marshall (vs Hou) – Marshall was once dubbed “Baby T.O.”, and it looks like he’s beginning to resemble that nickname again.  Not in a bad way, but in the fact that he plays with a chip on his shoulder that no defender could possibly knock off.  139 yards on seven catches was a great way to start the 2011 season but more importantly, he ended up leading the league in targets after Week One with 13.  This game against the Texans could be another shootout, so it wouldn’t surprise me to see him leading the league after two weeks as well.  If Miami becomes the passing team it looks like they are becoming, watch out for Terrell Owens-type stats from Marshall this year.

 

15.           Steve Johnson (vs Oak) – The big question surrounding Stevie Johnson coming into the season was if he was a one-hit wonder or the real deal.  With 66 yards and yet another TD after putting up 10 last year, it looks like the question has been answered.  Oakland’s pass D won’t be nearly as good as they were last season, so I expect some nice numbers out of Johnson this weekend.

 

16.           Dez Bryant (@ SF) – Bryant looks like a world-beater out there when he’s healthy, but that’s a question with him heading into the second week of the season.  He should be fine, but in case he’s still hobbled a bit with that quad injury, I’m giving Miles Austin the higher ranking of the two this week.  However, you should still be comfortable with him in your starting lineup against a 49ers team the Cowboys will look to be passing against.  That said, make sure you check the newsbreakers on Dez before starting him this Sunday.

 

17.           Kenny Britt (vs Bal) – Alright, so this kid is a monster.  No doubt about it.  He’s a touchdown waiting to happen on any given play and can go get the ball with the best of them already.  Still, against a tough Ravens defense that might not give Hasselbeck much time to throw the ball, I have a tough time ranking him higher than this.  Like I said, though, Britt can give you the fantasy week you were looking for on any given play.

 

18.           Brandon Lloyd (vs Cin) – If Lloyd turns out to be injured and can’t play due to the groin strain he incurred last Monday night, then obviously knock him off your board.  However, if he’s in there, Orton clearly still loves him as his top receiving option and will give him every chance in the world to put up fantasy numbers.  He had 11 targets last weekend against Oakland and caught six balls for 89 yards, so he’s obviously still one of the more dangerous WRs in the game right now.

 

19.           Dwayne Bowe (@ Det) – Ignore what happened to the Chiefs both on offense and defense last weekend, or don’t.  Maybe they were exploited as an overachieving team, maybe they simply had a bad week.  Whatever the case, Dwayne Bowe is too good for any of the Lions defensive backs to monitor and I expect Matt Cassel to make sure the ball is in his hands a ton this weekend.  If not, it may be time to worry.

 

20.           Reggie Wayne (vs Cle) – The Colts may be awful this season, but it won’t be because of Reggie Wayne.  Last week, with Kerry Collins fumbling and bumbling around all day long, Reggie was still able to put up 106 yards and a TD on seven catches.  That’s how good he is.  Hopefully another week of practice gets this offense going, but even if it doesn’t (which it won’t), Wayne will still be Collins’ favorite target and have a chance to do some damage.

 

21.           Wes Welker (vs SD) – Wes Welker, you are disgusting!  Unreal how a man of your size, with the injuries you’ve had to go through, can still do what you did last Monday night against the Dolphins.  Simply unreal.  The Chargers, however, own possibly the best pass defense in the game, so I don’t expect you to repeat those numbers.  Then again, with Brady leading the way, I guess it’s possible.

 

22.           Roddy White (vs Phi) – I feel for ya Roddy.  Last weekend, White had to play on possibly the worst surface in the NFL against one of the stingier pass D’s in the league in Chicago.  This week he gets to face off against the team with possibly the greatest group of cornerbacks ever assembled in Philadelphia.  Well, at least he’s at home this time where he’ll be able to use his speed… just don’t expect too much.

 

23.           Jeremy Maclin (@ Atl) – Maclin says he’s fine and to be honest, he looked fine last Sunday.  However, he only saw three targets to DeSean Jackson’s 12 while making just one grab for 20 yards against the Rams.  That said, the Eagles coaching staff said they plan to get him the ball more this Sunday, and I believe them.  He’s one of the more gifted receivers in the game and should start to be used as such, especially indoors against a suspect Falcons pass D.

 

24.           Plaxico Burress (vs Jax) – Plaxico actually looks like he may be okay this year as a starting WR3 for fantasy teams.  His height is untouchable, obviously, but what’s more important is that Mark Sanchez seems unafraid to throw it to him targeting him nine times last Sunday night.  Against a porous Jaguars D, he might be able to repeat his four-catch, 72-yard and one TD performance.

 

25.           Jordy Nelson (@ Car) – Wow is it fun watching a kid break out in the NFL, which is exactly what I was doing last Thursday night when Nelson put up six catches for 77 yards and a TD against the Saints.  It’s not the numbers, though, that impressed me.  It was the ease with which it seemed he was beating coverage and the consistency he displayed throughout the night.  If he really is as good as he looks, then opposing #2 cornerbacks don’t stand a chance against him going forward.  Nelson looks like he will be Aaron Rodgers’ go-to WR2 from here on out starting this weekend in Carolina, so pick him up or get him in there if you can.

 

26.           Percy Harvin (vs TB) – Harvin is clearly one of the most electric players in the game, as he showed by taking the opening kickoff 100+ yards to the house last weekend.  However, Donovan McNabb has to do a better job at getting him the ball, and I don’t mean by handing it off to him four times as opposed to completing just two passes to him.  My guess is that Harvin’s poor outing had more to do with the Chargers stifling pass D than anything else, so give him another shot at home in the dome as a WR3 against a much lesser Bucs D this weekend.

 

27.           Mario Manningham (vs StL) – I still believe Manningham will be a nice starting fantasy receiver this year, but he didn’t show me all that much in Week One.  Scratch that; Eli Manning and the Giants offense in general didn’t show me that much last weekend.  I DO, however, believe they will turn it around, and it could start this weekend against the Rams.  St. Louis has a beaten up secondary at the moment and with the Giants playing at home in New York on Monday night, you can bet the sparks will be flying everywhere.  Also, if Hakeem Nicks ends up sitting this one out, Mario will be Eli’s clear-cut WR1 for the week.

 

28.           A.J. Green (@ Den) – A.J. was pretty well blanketed by the Browns Joe Haden last weekend and didn’t make a single catch until a 41-yard TD in the fourth quarter.  Even then, the catch was made with nobody guarding him as the Browns weren’t even ready for the snap.  Despite the poor debut, Green still has more talent than most in the league and could bust out at any moment.  It might not be against Champ Bailey and the Broncos this weekend, but if Denver takes Champ off him at any time, watch out folks.

 

29.           Johnny Knox (@ NO) – It never should have taken this long for Knox to get into the starting lineup, but a whole week of the season has passed and he’s just now getting the chance.  I of course say this with a touch of sarcasm, but not much.  Roy E. Williams (groin) came up lame towards the end of the Bears win last weekend and might not be able to play this weekend, so Knox will get the chance to prove to Martz and Co. that he should have started for the Bears all along.  Indoors in New Orleans, Knox should be able to use his all-world speed to do some fantasy damage in Week Two.  Take a chance with him as a WR3 with major upside.

 

30.           Mike Sims-Walker (@ NYG) – With Danny Amendola out this weekend and RB Steven Jackson riding the sideline as well, someone will have to step up for the Rams this Monday night.  My call is Mike Sims-Walker.  The Giants secondary is basically patchwork at this point so someone on the Rams is going to exploit the problem-area.  It could be Brandon Gibson, but my money is on the guy with all the talent and size in the world.
