Kansas City Chiefs

We're Not in Kansas Anymore


There are steady 20-plus MPH winds w/35 MPH gusts in New York and that will prevent the deep ball from being a major factor in the Giants game vs KC.

Look for Alex Smith revert to the dink and dunk game which defined his career before this year’s break-out campaign. I really don’t think it hurts anyone’s value though. The Giants problems stem from poor talking and Hill can take a screen pass for 80 yards at any time. The Giants are so poor against the TE that Kelce should still be heavily used in DFS. We should also see a nice bump in Hunt’s usage across the board.

Sterling Shepard

New York Giants

Migraines Sideline Shepard


The Giants may be without WR Sterling Shepard, a late addition to their injury report, due to migraines, source says. They’ll check him out closer to kickoff to be sure.
Update: Sterling Shepard (migraines) is inactive for Week 11 against the Chiefs.

This would have been an awesome match-up for Shepard, and he was looking at plenty of targets, but I don’t mess with migraines. I’m pivoting to other players, and none of them are Giants.

Leonard Fournette

Jacksonville Jaguars

Rookie Wall?


Fournette came off of essentially 20 days of resting and rehabbing the injured ankle suffered in the fourth quarter of Jacksonville’s October 15th loss to the Rams, when he suited up last week against the L.A. Chargers. Last week, he carried 17 times for 33 yards. According to Florida Football Insiders, Leonard Fournette's ankle is "still not right," and he could be limited if he plays this week against the Browns.

I’ve heard a few people recognize that Cleveland’s run defense has been underrated this year. They started out pretty strong, but they have been fading lately, especially when it comes to the pass-catching backs over the past five games. Yeldon or Ivory could be that sneaky flex you’re looking for.

Update: Fournette is active, Ivory battling illness.

Jacksonville Jaguars

Ground and Pound


According to Forecast.io, it's expected to be 39° F and with a 18% chance of snow and 20 MPH wind in Cleveland at 1:00 PM ET.

This is something to watch Sunday morning, especially if you were high on the Jacksonville passing game facing Cleveland this weekend. The snow doesn’t matter, but the wind could eliminate any deep balls. If you’re looking for a Dede or K. Cole explosion, like I have been, I think we’re going to have to wait at least one more week. Marquis Lee should be fine, he’ll still get his targets. The running game should benefit, but Fournette is questionable with an ankle.

Jay Ajayi

Philadelphia Eagles

Ajayi Slated for More Work in Week 11


Coaches have come out and said there is a concentrated effort to increase Ajayi's workload.

Fantasy Goo: Certainly Corey Clement impressed in their last game, Week 9 against Denver. However, he won't sustain the pace of 3TDs on just 13 touches. I do like both players in GPP, I would certainly save Clement for the larger tournaments where you take on more risk in order to differentiate yourself from the field. Still, Ajayi has had a bye week and a game to get familiar with his new digs. Each game from now on, should highlight his comfort and growth in the system.

Devonta Freeman

Atlanta Falcons

Coleman to Increase Workload Sans Freeman


Devonta Freeman is in concussion protocol. That leaves Tevin 'Betchya Bottom Dollar" Coleman to pick up extra duties.

Fantasy Goo: Freeman was taken out very early on in last week's game. Because of this, Coleman seized the reins with command. He finished as Draft Kings 10th best RB of the week. Their Week 11 matchup with the Seahawks could easily turn into a high schoring affair as Seattle is without starters Richard Sherman, Kam Chancellor, and Jarran Reed. What Seattle puts on the field will not resemble what we are accustomed to. Coleman should seize thee opportunity.

Buffalo Bills

Bills Getting Gashed


In the last 3 weeks, the Buffalo Bills have given up 8 TDS. There is not a team in the league that has given up more than 8 rushing TDS ALL SEASON!

Fantasy Goo: There is trepidation about Gordon this week. Ekeler made a bit of a name for himself last week as Gordon owners experienced fits or rage and madness last week. I still like Gordon even in cash this week. Still whichever back you prefer, they should have a field day.

Jamaal Williams

Green Bay Packers

Next Man Up


As expected, Ty Montgomery officially ruled OUT for Sunday against the Ravens. Jamaal Williams should start at running back.

Williams is not Montgomery or Jones, I would not recommend starting him if you can prevent it. It will probably take a positive game script for him to be heavily use, don’t be surprised if we see Cobb being used in the backfield, especially in third-and-long situations.

Alshon Jeffery

Philadelphia Eagles

Open Door for Agholor


Eagles coach Doug Pederson says that Alshon Jeffery's ankle injury has been lingering for a while, but he is "optimistic" he'll play against the Cowboys Sunday night. He will be listed as questionable.

I’m looking at Nelson Agholor having a nice opportunity to put up some points with Dallas being the 24th ranked defense against opposing WR’s. Ertz coming off of the injury report is an obvious play, he’s a must start whenever he’s on the field.

It seems as though Jeffery plays through injuries every year, but he’s not very effective when he does. His injuries tend to linger and former performance enhancer users tend to get hurt more often.

Kareem Hunt

Kansas City Chiefs

KC Ready to Run


The KC/NYG game could experience heavy winds, and certainly, a blowout of the Giants is a likely outcome as well. If either, or both of these potential situations play out, it could be good things for the KC ground game.

Fantasy Goo: The Giants have surrendered 3 rushing TD in their last 2 games. On the season, they have given up the 5th most yards to opposing backs. Hunt is a great cash game play, and in GPPs, I will toss out a few line-ups with West, maybe 5%. If indeed it is a blowout, the Chiefs, led by Reid who is 16-2 off a bye, could look to lighten the load for their workhorse RB and let Charcandrick bat cleanup.

Sterling Shepard

New York Giants

Sterling Shepard's Time to Shine


The Giants are going to need to put the ball in the air against KC. Keep an eye on the winds in this one. If it is north of 15mph, I will lessen my DFS shares.

Fantasy Goo: If the winds are not bad, Shep could get some looks as he should dominate KC's Steven Nelson. There are 84 starting cornerbacks in the NFL for Week #11. Nelson comes in at #80 according to PFF

Tom Brady

New England Patriots

Brady a Top Bet for DFS Cash Games


The Patriots stayed in mile-high country last week in order to get acclimated to higher altitudes. The Raiders remained at sea level. This week they square off in Mexico City, which is much higher than one mile up. The difference could be seen in the 2nd half where the Raiders could run out of gas.

Fantasy Goo: Regardless of the elevation narrative, this game opened as the only 50 pointer this coming week. Football Outsiders ranks Oakland dead last for defensive DVOA, weighted defense, and overall pass ranking. Plus, Tom Brady is a great stack with Gronk against Oakland who is notoriously bad versus tight ends. Finally, New England will likely be missing Hogan, the recipient of 11 red zone targets this season. Gronk could easily be the beneficiary, as he has 13 himself.

Mike Evans @MIA - $7,800 - Much like AJ Green last week, I am banking on Evans to deliver his game of redemption and bounce back in a BIG way. Ryan Fitzpatrick will only have eyes for the 6'5 Evans as he once did for Brandon Marshall in NY. Evans will coast down A1A for 2TDS!

Travis Kelce @NYG - $7,500 - Kelce has 3TDs in the last 3 games. The Giants are giving up a TD every game to opposing TEs this season. That's crazy! Momma ain't raise no fool. 1+1= 2TDs!

Melvin Gordon vsBUF - $7,800 - The Bills gave up 50FPTS at home to the Saints dynamic duo of Mark Ingram and Alvin Kamara just last week, and now have to fly to LA. Gordon will stampede all over the Buffalo Bills. 2TDs in da house!

Quarterbacks

 

 

1.           Tom Brady (@ Buf) – There has been one constant debate I’ve had with the guys I’ve been in a fantasy football league with for 10+ years, and that is – Who is better, Peyton Manning or Tom Brady?  I have always been on the Manning side of the fence, backing up every single argument with stats and facts galore, but it seems I can no longer deny it; Tommy “The Stetson Man” Brady-Bundchen is a quarterbacking God.  There is nothing he can’t do on the field, no defense he can’t make cry, no receiver he can’t make fantasy-worthy and at this point, I simply cannot find a single reason to rank him lower than number one each week.  Until he and the Patriots throw up a weekend crapper (which they may never do), Brady will be glued to the fantasy throne.

 

2.           Matthew Stafford (@ Min) – I’ll say it again, basically because I have no idea why others didn’t see it as plainly as I did, but Matthew Stafford is the next big-time NFL QB.  His seven passing TDs are tied for the league lead at this point and it doesn’t look like he’ll be slowing down any time soon.  Minnesota gave up 335 yards passing to Philip Rivers in Week One and then allowed another 243 yards from Josh Freeman in Week Two despite a seven minute advantage in time of possession.  Matty feels at home in a dome, so count on another big fantasy weekend from the Lions QB.

 

3.           Philip Rivers (vs KC) – In his last six games against the Chiefs, Rivers has averaged just over 295 yards a game and has 13 TDs compared to just four INTs.  Obviously the kid loves this inter-division rivalry.  Besides that, the Chiefs lost their best defensive/secondary player for the year in safety Eric Berry and have allowed eight passing touchdowns in just two games thus far (two more than any other team in the NFL).

 

4.           Drew Brees (vs Hou) – If there’s one thing Drew Brees’ fantasy owners love, it’s an old-fashioned shoot-out at the Georgia Dome.  Before last week when he put up 270 yards and three TDs in a win at home against the Bears, Brees had averaged 2.5 TDs and 311 passing yards a game at home over the last three years.  If Tom Brady and Chad Henne can throw for a combined 933 yards and six TDs in a game, I’m thinking Brees and Schaub might be able to come close.

 

5.           Michael Vick (vs NYG) – Concussion schmussion, gimme an English muffin.  Vick is just fine, folks, and he’ll have no problem getting on the field this weekend for an inter-division rivalry game against the Giants.  New York actually held him to an average of 250 yards and 1.5 passing TDs per game last season, but Vick also ran for 82 yards and a touchdown per game against them as well.  With the Giants defense still crippled and D-Lineman Osi Umenyiora not due back until Week Four, I expect Vick to make a little mincemeat out of these guys come Sunday.

 

6.           Aaron Rodgers (@ Chi) – To be honest, Rodgers hasn’t fared so well against the Bears during the past three years.  In the six games they’ve hooked up in that time, Aaron “It Out” averaged just 233 yards passing per game and threw just seven TDs while tossing up four INTs.  However, the past is the past; things change; tomorrow is another day, etc. etc. etc.  Rodgers is a different and much better QB than he was, especially now that he has a Super Bowl ring on his finger, so the pressure of this game really shouldn’t get to him.

 

7.           Matt Schaub (@ NO) – Compared to the rest of the quarterbacks in the league, Schaub has been pretty unspectacular to this point.  However, he’s done what the team needed him to do in order to get wins, which against the 0-2 Colts and 0-2 Dolphins, wasn’t much.  He does have three TDs to go along with his 71.7% completion percentage so far, and I believe that TD total could actually double this weekend.  Houston will have to pass the ball in order to keep up with New Orleans’ high-scoring offense while the Saints defense can certainly be beat by a good QB, as shown by Aaron Rodgers in Week One.  This is the week Schaub gives his fantasy owners what they paid for.

 

8.           Ben Roethlisberger (@ Ind) – Fantasy owners expecting QB1-type numbers from Roethlisberger this year are probably pretty disappointed thus far, but no worries; it’s about time Big Ben turned it around.  Rashard Mendenhall might be able to run all over the place this Sunday, but Pittsburgh will have to unleash that talented WR corps at some point, so why not do it indoors on the Indy turf?  With one of the top-three fastest set of receivers in the league in Mike Wallace, Emmanuel Sanders and Antonio Brown, Roethlisberger should be able to have a field day picking apart the Colts secondary.

 

9.           Tony Romo (vs Was) – Yes, Romo has a fractured rib.  Yes, Miles Austin is highly doubtful to play this weekend.  Yes, Dez Bryant may not be at 100 percent.  But NO, none of this will matter to Tony Romo and the Cowboys this Sunday.  Washington is 2-0 and has an early division lead going into this weekend so I expect Dallas to do everything it can to get a win… which to the Cowboys means pass, pass and more pass.  Since Romo became their starting QB, the Cowboys have averaged 34.25 points a game in home openers.  Just food for thought.

 

10.       Ryan Fitzpatrick (vs NE) – The thing about the Patriots is they don’t just put up a ton of points while gaining a zillion yards; they also give up a bunch of points and yards in the process.  Fitzpatrick has shown the ability to rack up fantasy points with the best of them as he currently ranks second in the league behind Brady.  If the team can protect the ball and not turn it over, the Harvard alum has a good shot at tossing up 300 yards and a couple TDs… albeit in a loss for the Bills.

 

11.       Cam Newton (vs Jax) – Everybody knows the rookie QB records Cam Newton has demolished thus far in his two-game career, but did you know he has more completions for over 20 yards than anybody else in the league (16) and leads the NFL in yards per completion (9.46)?  Aren’t rookie QBs supposedly afraid to go deep when they first join the league?  Basically, Cam Newton has broken the mold and should continue to do so against a Jaguars D that ranked last in the league last year in giving up 8.3 yards per passing attempt.  Don’t miss the boat on this kid.

 

12.       Matt Hasselbeck (vs Den) – In his 13th season, Matt Hasselbeck likely has the best receiver he’s ever thrown to in his entire career in Kenny Britt, and he knows it.  Denver’s defense is once again near the bottom of the pack so Hassel shouldn’t have too much of a problem tossing the pill around on them, especially if Champ Bailey can’t make it back in time.  Believe it or not, through two games in the 2011 season, the Titans new QB has the fifth most completions (51) and sixth most passing yards (621) in the entire league.  More than Aaron Rodgers, Matthew Stafford and Sexy Rexy!

 

13.       Matt Ryan (@ TB) – It wasn’t pretty, but Ryan finally got off the fantasy schneid last weekend tossing up four TDs against the vaunted Eagles pass D.  If that’s not a confidence booster, I don’t know what is.  The problem here is that even though he has a 5-1 career record against the Bucs, his high in passing yards against them is just 235 yards while his high in fantasy points doesn’t even hit the 18-point mark.  He’s better than that, though.  QBs have already averaged 17.3 fantasy points against Tampa so far this season, so I think Ryan will be just fine come Sunday.

 

14.       Kevin Kolb (@ Sea) – The numbers the Seahawks have put up on defense actually look pretty decent thus far, but that’s about to change in Week Three.  Larry Fitzgerald has pretty much had his way with the Seahawks over his career, and now that he has a real QB again, he should be able to continue that streak.  The Cardinals and Beanie Wells may not find it as easy to run on them as they might think as Seattle has held Frank Gore to 59 yards and Rashard Mendehall to just 66, so they’ll need to turn to the passing game sooner than later if they want to win this road game.

 

15.       Rex Grossman (@ Dal) – Isn’t it about time Sexy Rexy threw a fat goose-egg up on the board?  Normally I’d say yes, but not this time.  I believe the surprises will keep coming this week against a banged up Dallas D that could barely stop Alex Smith and the 49ers last Sunday.  The Redskins WR corps may be in the middle of the pack in terms of talent, but the tight end position with Fred Davis and Chris Cooley brings an element to Rex’s game that seems to work well within his talents.  When called upon to start against the ‘Boys last season, Grossman threw for 322 yards and four TDs in a fantasy outing up close to 30 points.  That said, expect the unexpected.

 

16.       Mark Sanchez (@ Oak) – I’m pretty sure it won’t last, but Mark Sanchez is currently on pace for 4,136 yards and 32 TDs.  I mention this for a couple of reasons.  First, I wanted to show that despite a complete overhaul in the Jets WR corps since his 2009 rookie season (not a single WR remains on the team), Dirty Sanchez has still managed to get better each year.  Secondly, I want people to know he’s not just a sideshow QB anymore… he’s actually better than you think.  Oakland still has a pretty good secondary after the loss of Asomugha, but Sanchez should be able to get rack up some decent fantasy points regardless this weekend.

 

17.       Josh Freeman (vs Atl) – If it weren’t for his five-TD performance against the lowly Seahawks in Week 16 last year, Freeman would have finished 23rd in the league averaging just 16.2 fantasy points/game.  I mention this because Josh has put up just 16.1 fantasy points/game so far this season against two so-so defenses in Detroit at home and against the Vikings indoors.  Basically, maybe Freeman isn’t quite as good of a fantasy QB as people thought.  In his two games versus Atlanta last season, Freeman completed just 50 percent of his passes while putting up an average of, you guessed it; 16.1 fantasy points/game.  Then again, Atlanta’s pass D is pretty darn porous so far.

 

18.       Joe Flacco (@ StL) – St. Louis has a pretty stingy pass D and can really get after the quarterback; something Flacco had a problem with in Week Two against the Titans.  If Lee Evans plays, the Ravens have enough speed on offense for Flacco to do some damage in the dome, but I can’t see him going off too hard for your team if you have to start him.

 

19.       Chad Henne (@ Cle) – With rookie RB Daniel Thomas finally showing to have a little juice in his engine last weekend, Miami may not pass the ball as much as anticipated after Week One.  On top of that, Cleveland’s pass D has proved to be pretty stingy so far this season (second in the NFL in both yards allowed and completion percentage allowed per game) with DB Joe Haden leading up the squad.  My guess is that Miami will have to pass the ball in the second half to win this one, so not all is lost, but you can probably do better than Henne this weekend.

 

20.       Jay Cutler (vs GB) – The good news: Over his career, Cutler has been a MUCH better QB at home averaging 243.3 yards and 1.8 TDs per game versus 228.2 yards and 1.3 TDs on the road.  The bad news: In his five career games against the Packers, Cutler has averaged just 227.8 yards and 1.0 TDs per game while tossing up nine INTs in the process.  Basically, it’s a crapshoot, and not a very good one at that.
