Tom Brady

New England Patriots

Tom Still Terrific?


Tom Brady was first listed on the team's injury report with an Achilles injury heading in to Week 11.
Weeks 1-10: 21.2 fantasy points per game, 110.9 passer rating
Weeks 11-17: 14.2 fantasy points per game, 87.3 passer rating

Fantasy Goo: This should line up for a good week for Brady, Tennessee is 8th in fantasy points allowed to RB’s, but just below average against QB’s. The Patriots are 13 point favorites on Saturday Night, if Brady doesn’t do it at home in prime-time then something is wrong.

Alvin Kamara

New Orleans Saints

Primary Role Shifting


Saints have run 5 times at/inside opponent's 5-yard line over last 4 weeks (including playoffs):
Alvin Kamara 3 carries, Zach Line 1, Mark Ingram 1. Kamara was in on all 3 Saints run plays at/inside 5 vs. Panthers last week, including Line's 1-yard TD run.

Fantasy Goo: If you’re trying to decide between Kamara and Ingram for the playoff run, Kamara looks to be the much better play.

Jay Ajayi

Philadelphia Eagles

It's A Trap


Jay Ajayi (knee) is practicing in full for the Divisional Round.

Fantasy Goo: Atlanta is 5th in fantasy points allowed to RB’s this year and they are more susceptible to pass-catching backs. Todd Gurley rushed 14 times for 101 yards in the Rams' Wild Card loss to the Falcons, adding four receptions for 10 additional yards. Ajayi might have been drafted before Gurley this year, but that was clearly a mistake. Ajayi has talent, but he’s far from a good option this week.

Chris Hogan

New England Patriots

Back in Action


Chris Hogan (shoulder) is expected to return for Saturday's Divisional Round game against the Titans.

Fantasy Goo: He’s going to take a couple of weeks to get in tune with the offense, I’m looking to save him until the Super Bowl if you’re in one of those one and done fantasy playoff tournaments.

Drew Brees

New Orleans Saints

Strength vs Strength


Saints RBs led NFL during regular season in receptions (9.0) and receiving yards (77.8) per game.
Vikings held opposing RBs to fewest yards per target (4.2) and 3rd-fewest yards per game (30.6).

Fantasy Goo: The Vikings have been absolutely sick in all aspects on defense this year. If the Saints are going to pull this one out it sounds like it’s going to have to be a Brees week, I’m not so sure he’s going to be the guy you want to start on the road this week.

LeSean McCoy

Buffalo Bills

Not The Real McCoy


LeSean McCoy said if he plays Sunday, "I want to be able to cut well enough to where I don't have a lot of pain cutting. I just want to be close, or the best as far as 100 percent as I can get. The type of game like this, you got to lay it all on the line.”

Fantasy Goo: McCoy is a poor play against the Jags this week. The Jags strength on defense is against the pass (#1 in FP allowed), but they are still strong against the rush (11th). I’m not taking any Bills on fantasy playoff squads or in DFS this week.

Derrick Henry

Tennessee Titans

Arrow Pointing Down


DeMarco Murray (knee) didn't practice again Thursday. Derrick Henry show ready to go.

Fantasy Goo: The way to attack KC is through the air, they rank 9th in fantasy points allowed to RB’s. They will most likely be in negative game script. KC hasn’t allowed any team to score over 20 points in Arrowhead all year.

Julio Jones

Atlanta Falcons

No Fly Zone


Julio Jones finished 11th in NFL in red-zone targets but caught only 5 of 19. He finished 4th in targets inside 10 but only caught 4 of 11.

Fantasy Goo: The Rams have a strong pass defense, especially against outside receivers, but are second worst in fantasy points allowed to RB’s. Freeman and Coleman are the only Falcons I am considering this week.

Kenny Golladay

Detroit Lions

Under the Radar


In the first game with TJ Jones (shoulder) on IR last week, Kenny Golladay played 95% of snaps and led DET WRs with 8 targets.

Fantasy Goo: Marvin Jones has a history of shredding the Packers defense and is a solid play at $6500 on DK, but Golladay is half the price ($3300) and will probably see a similar number of targets. If Detroit had something to play for I’d be stacking the heck out of this game, but I still think it’s smart to have one of these guys in the line-up this week.

Patrick Mahomes

Kansas City Chiefs

Rookie Debut


Patrick Mahomes was 2nd in PFF’s QB Rating when kept clean in preseason. He rushed for 744 yards, 22 TDs in his last two years at Texas Tech. Denver has allowed multiple passing TDs to six-straight QBs not named Petty or Brissett.

Fantasy Goo: The rookie was supposed to take over for Alex Smith much earlier this season, but Smith and the Chief’s came out firing on all cylinders and kept the rookie on the bench. Mahomes will get his chance this week as Smith gets a week off before the playoffs. Denver may be packing it in, but they still have one of the best defenses and I expect they will play more inspired this week against a division rival.

Wayne Gallman

New York Giants

Last Man Standing


Giants will be without Shepard (neck), Engram (ribs), and King (concussion) vs. WAS. Wayne Gallman has 9, 7, 8 target counts in last three weeks.

Fantasy Goo: Washington ranks 24th in fantasy points allowed to RB’s and Gallman is $4200 on DK. Feels like a great way to save and pay up at other positions.

Alex Collins

Baltimore Ravens

Burfict Situation


Bengals LB Vontaze Burfict ruled out for game Sunday at Baltimore because of shoulder injury.

Fantasy Goo: Collins becomes a solid RB1 this week. Cincinnati’s run defense is a sieve with Burfict out.

Akeem Hunt

Houston Texans

Akeem No Dream


Charcandrick West is out Sunday vs Denver with an illness. Akeem Hunt and Kareem Hunt only RBs on active roster for KC. It would be a surprise to see Kareem play much. That means a ton of Akeem Hunt and likely some De'Anthony Thomas on passing downs.

Fantasy Goo: Akeem is min price ($3000) on DK so the definition of a free-square, but there’s a reason he’s bounced around the NFL and never earned a starting role. Denver is 5th in fantasy points allowed to RB’s, I’m not rostering Akeem when there are so many other options this week.

DeAndre Hopkins

Houston Texans

Milestone Not Worth The Risk


Bill O'Brien on DeAndre Hopkins' status: 'Probably won't know up until game time'. Typically, we might classify this as coach-speak, but Hopkins has never missed a game, and is four catches away from 100 for the season. He's probably pushing hard to play.

Fantasy Goo: This is an awesome match-up for the Houston WR’s going against a very weak Indy pass defense, but there is really no reason for Hopkins to play, especially with the calf injury. At $8400 on DK he’s just way too pricey given this news. A sneaky start might be Will Fuller at $4300, he has 5 targets in each of the past three games and is coming off some difficult match-ups. Earlier in the season he was a superstar with Watson throwing the ball, but he has always had the big play in his arsenal no matter who the QB is.

Dion Lewis

New England Patriots

Vultures Are Always Flying


James White (ankle) remained limited at Thursday's practice. White was absent for last week's win over Buffalo but should be out there against the Jets in Week 17. He ranks eighth among running backs with 56 catches this year.

Fantasy Goo: Lewis dominated last week with White and Burkhead out, even though Gillislee vultured a TD. I would imagine that White playing will take away the five receptions Lewis had last week and the Jets actually have a better rush defense than the Pats week 16 opponent (Buf). The Pats will be looking to lock-up home field advantage and won’t be resting their starters, but they will probably be looking to get everyone some work as they prep for the playoffs. Gillislee appears to be nursing a hammy and is not expected to play, but let’s not forget how White performed last year in the Super Bowl.

Pittsburgh Steelers

Stars Sitting


The Steelers Marcus Gilbert tells reporter Tim Benz that the Steelers won't play Ben Roethlisberger or Le'Veon Bell in finale vs. Cleveland. Landry Jones will be under center for Pittsburgh and Fitzgerald Toussaint and Stevan Ridley will form a thoroughly underwhelming RB committee against the Browns.

Fantasy Goo: Underwhelming is an understatement for these two backs, a highly respected fantasy website hasn’t even updated the news on these two since the pre-season and doesn’t even recognize them as being on the team. The one player of note in this is Martavis Bryant, The Alien averages over 17 ppr points per game with Landry at the helm as opposed to 8.4 ppg with other QB’s. He also has 5 TD’s in 5 home games with Landry. Granted most of this production comes from 2015 when they worked together often in the preseason, but Bryant could be a very sneaky GPP play this week.

Jacksonville Jaguars

Play To Win The Game


Despite already being locked into the AFC's No. 3 seed, Jaguars coach Doug Marrone has no plans to rest starters in Sunday's game against the Titans. "Make no mistake about it, just so there is not a lot of talk during the week: When the players come in (Wednesday), we are talking about how we are going to play to win and do everything we possibly can to win this game, period," Marrone said. "I am not even thinking about what happens beyond that, and that is the way we are going to go about our business this week."

Fantasy Goo: I think it’s crazy of him to do, but I’m sure he has Tom Coughlin in his ear feeding him that old-school philosophy. Looks like Bortles, Fournette, Westbrook and Cole will be safe plays against a Titan’s team hoping to hold on to the sixth seed in the AFC.

Los Angeles Rams

Resting Starters


McVay hints that there will be Rams starters “who won’t play at all” on Sunday. The Rams are already locked into either the No. 3 or 4 seed in the NFC and will host a Wild Card round playoff game.

Fantasy Goo: Gurley, Goff, Woods, all sitting this week? That’s going to destroy so many hopes and dreams for teams that rode Gurley all year.

DeMarco Murray

Tennessee Titans

Grind It Out


Mike Mularkey said he's not ruling DeMarco Murray out just yet. He's day-to-day. The Titans are holding out hope to have him in limited role.

Fantasy Goo: They are really grinding him into the dirt if they play him this week. I didn’t see the injury, but it sounded pretty ugly from sources in the know. Keep away from him in whatever format you are playing this week, I’m giving Derick Henry a solid upgrade as the Titans are trying to hold on to the final playoff spot in the AFC.

Philadelphia Eagles

All Locked Up


Pederson on playing Foles vs. Cowboys: “I’ve got to get him as many reps as he can and then be smart about it. Obviously, we have a lot of football left. Our season is really just beginning, quite honestly. We’ll be smart.”

Fantasy Goo: This is why you don’t play a championship game in week 17. I’m staying away from the Eagles regular starters, pretty much across the board, as they have a first round bye all locked up. Guys like Blount, Clement, and Nelson Agholor might have some DFS appeal, but we have to get closer to Sunday to see what they plan on doing.

WR Player Rankings – Week 3

 

 

QB Rankings  RB Rankings  TE Rankings

 

Wide Receivers

 

 

1.               Vincent Jackson (vs KC) – Kansas City’s defense looks atrocious this season, especially without Eric Berry out there running around in the secondary.  V-Jax should be able to have his way in this one as the Chiefs have already given up eight passing TDs in just two weeks (four TD passes each to both Ryan Fitzgerald and Matthew Stafford), two more than any other team in the league.  The Chargers will look to make a statement in this one, so I’m betting they don’t slow down after going up by 28 at the half.

 

2.               Andre Johnson (@ NO) – It’s tough to keep Andre out of the number one slot this week, but until I see one of those monster games out of him, I’ll sit him at the two.  On the other hand, in a game against a high-flying Saints team that has a good probability of becoming a free-for-all shootout in the dome, I may end up regretting it.  ’Dre could just as easily put up 160 yards and three TDs.

 

3.               Calvin Johnson (@ Min) – Calvin Johnson is tied for the league lead with four touchdowns this season… on just nine catches?!?!  Are you kidding me?  Megatron is proving each week why he is one of the most feared wide receivers in the game, and he’ll do so again versus the Vikings come Sunday.  Matthew Stafford is on a serious roll right now and with Minnesota ranking in the bottom ten in the league in passing yards allowed, I can’t see a way how these two fantasy giants don’t hook up for at least one TD and a whole bunch of yards this weekend.

 

4.               Kenny Britt (vs Den) – Britt’s hamstring acted up again in practice on Wednesday, but he should be fine to play this weekend.  The 6’3”, 23-year old man-child has been an absolute beast so far this season and has clearly established himself as Matt Hasselbeck’s first look on nearly every passing play.  With Broncos star cornerback, Champ Bailey, unlikely to play on Sunday, look for Kenny to go off once again.

 

5.               Mike Wallace (@ Ind) – Mike Wallace and Ben Roethlisberger might have the best rapport in the league at this point, especially with Wallace becoming more of an all-around receiver instead of simply a speedster.  In 14 games since Big Ben came off his suspension last season, Wallace has caught 67 receptions on 103 targets for a measly 1,279 yards and nine TDs.  Not too shabby, eh?  I expect big things again this weekend as the Steelers play indoors where Wallace can really show his speed.

 

6.               Larry Fitzgerald (@ Sea) – It was nice to see Fitz have a monster game last weekend when he put up 133 yards on seven catches with a 73-yard TD.  This week, Larry gets to play the lowly Seahawks, a team he’s averaged 6.3 receptions and 82.7 yards against in 14 games to go along with nine TDs.  Seattle has let opposing QBs tally a 106.4 QB-rating against them so far this year, so Fitz and the Cardinals should be able to do what they want.

 

7.               Greg Jennings (@ Chi) – Jennings has a touchdown in four of his last six regular season games against the Bears and could very well get another one this weekend.  Chicago is a bit banged up in their secondary right now and won’t be able to double Jennings due to Jordy Nelson breaking out of late.  The Packers will want to make a statement in this game letting the Bears know this is their division to lose despite the final standings last season.  I expect Rodgers to use Greg heavily on Sunday.

 

8.               Steve Smith – Car (vs Jax) – With Stevie Smith playing like a man possessed out there, I feel like I’ve been jettisoned back into the middle of the last decade watching him play.  Not only is he still fast as hell, but it looks like he may even be a bit quicker than he was in his mid-twenties!  Jacksonville has a tendency to give up the big play, something Cam Newton and Smitty seem to have real knack for.  I’m not totally sold on this combo just yet, but one more big game between the two and I’m in.

 

9.               Dez Bryant (vs Was) – With Miles Austin out for this game and Felix Jones a bit banged up, guess who will be looked at to produce a big play or two?  Dez Bryant, that’s who.  Jason Witten will undoubtedly get a truckload of targets as well, but Bryant will be the one stretching the field against a highly overrated DeAngelo Hall.  Bryant and Tony Romo may be a bit banged up themselves, but the best of the best tend to excel in these situations, which is exactly what these two will do.

 

10.           Jeremy Maclin (vs NYG) – WOW what a game Maclin had against the Falcons last weekend!  Jeremy set career highs in every statistical category getting 15 targets while catching 13 balls for 171 yards.  He also tied his career high with two TDs to boot.  However, it’s now Week 3, and I’m betting on Maclin shining once again.  Last year, J-Mac averaged 12.5 targets which he turned into an average of eight catches for 89.5 yards and one TD against the Giants.  New York still has a banged up secondary and without Osi Umenyiora back in the lineup just yet; Vick should have enough time to find him in the secondary.  Play him as a fringe WR1 this week.

 

11.           Roddy White (@ TB) – The writing was on the wall before the season began that Roddy was going to see a drop-off in every statistical category due to the presence of Julio Jones.  Little did we know that his numbers would actually be sliced in half!  Last year at this point, Roddy had 20 catches on 35 targets for 189 yards and a TD.  This season – 11 catches, 17 targets, 84 yards and one TD.  Granted, the Falcons have played two very tough pass defenses so far, so things will get better, but don’t expect the same gaudy numbers White put up last season.  Playing in Tampa this weekend, the Falcons may need to turn to the pass at some point so I expect Roddy will end up being good for fringe WR1 stats on the day.

 

12.           Mike Williams – TB (vs Atl) – Mike Williams is looking for his breakout game of 2011 and going up against the inter-division Falcons this Sunday, he just might get it.  Much like last season, the Falcons have been passed on all over the place so far this year.  In 2010, Williams averaged 74 yards while grabbing a TD in each of the two games against Atlanta, numbers I can see him repeating at home this Sunday.

 

13.           Santonio Holmes (@ Oak) – Oakland has allowed the second most catches to opposing wide receivers so far this year (35 recs), so Santonio should be good for at least 5-6.  He’s tied for the team lead in targets so far with 14 (Dustin Keller) so you know he’ll at least have the opportunity to do some damage.  For some reason, even though Oakland’s defense can be rushed on, opposing teams have attempted the second fewest rushes against them this season.  If the Jets turn to the pass like other teams have, Holmes could end up with WR1 numbers.

 

14.           DeSean Jackson (vs NYG) – D-Jax was held in check pretty well by the Giants last season holding him to zero touchdowns and an average of just four catches for 51 yards in their two meetings.  However, the year before, Jackson went off for two TDs and a total of 256 yards on nine receptions.  Which one will show up this time around?  With Jeremy Maclin obviously back at full force, I’m guessing somewhere in the middle for DeSean, especially with the Giants’ secondary still a bit banged up.

 

15.           Steve Johnson (vs NE) – If you haven’t seen this kid play, find a way to do so.  He’s a TON of fun to watch and has become one of the best up-and-coming receivers in the game.  Ryan Fitzpatrick absolutely loves tossing him the pill, as evidenced by his 20 targets so far this year after seeing 142 of them in 2010.  With two of the top three scoring offenses in the league, this game against the Patriots has a real good probability of becoming a high-scoring affair, so Johnson should be good for at least WR2 numbers with an upside much higher than that.

 

16.           Santana Moss (@ Dal) – 32-year old Santana Moss has become one of the more consistent wide receivers in the game in his old age and should have no problem putting up nice fantasy numbers against a relatively weak Dallas secondary.  Last season against the Cowboys, Santana had a combined 14 catches for 149 yards and two TDs in the two games these inter-division rivals hooked up.  An average of those numbers (seven catches, 75 yards and one TD) looks about right for Moss this Monday night.

 

17.           Wes Welker (@ Buf) – Is this kid ever going to slow down?  As long as he’s in New England with Brady throwing him the ball, the answer is ‘not likely’.  Welker currently sits at fourth in the league in fantasy points and is tied for the second-most catches with 15.  Buffalo has held him in check pretty well the last few years, but I don’t see them doing it again this Sunday with the Patriots passing offense looking as unstoppable as it is.

 

18.           Brandon Lloyd (@ Ten) – After missing last week’s contest against the Bengals, you can bet the Broncos WR1 is just itching to get back out there.  Lloyd is still Kyle Orton’s favorite target (he had 11 of them in Week One), so you know he’ll get the chance to put up big numbers.  Last season, Brandon had a career high 11 receptions against the Titans (for 115 yards) and though I doubt he repeats that number, it’s not outside the realm of possibility.

 

19.           Percy Harvin (vs Det) – Harvin continues to be under-used in this Vikings offense; though it seems the coaching staff at least knows it.  Minnesota is 0-2 at this point and if they want to at least stay in the playoff hunt, they’ll have to figure out a way to get Harvin the ball more.  His playmaking ability is off the charts, so if McNabb can somehow find a way to get him the ball at least 10 times this Sunday, Percy should be able to use his indoors-talent to get into the endzone against a Lions D he normally does well against.

 

20.           Anquan Boldin (@ StL) – Boldin is still an all-world talent out there on the field, but his lack of consistency has become maddening for fantasy owners.  Trying to figure out which weeks he’ll put up numbers for you is akin to flipping a coin at this point.  That said, against a Rams defense that can get to the QB in a hurry, I foresee the Ravens and Joe Flacco going with more three- and five-step drops this Sunday in order to counteract the rush, so Boldin could be looking at a lot of quick slants in this one.  ‘Quan is still lethal with the ball in his hands, so I’m cautiously optimistic about his fantasy chances here.

 

21.           Hakeem Nicks (@ Phi) – Nicks is obviously one of the best young receivers in the game today, but can his superior skills and freakishly large hands catch enough passes against this Philly secondary to make a fantasy difference?  The Eagles have already stifled Roddy White, Julio Jones and all the Rams crap receivers, though Roddy did come away with a short TD, so Nicks has a chance.  I understand how tough it is to actually sit a guy Nicks, and I’m not saying you should, but don’t expect much better than borderline WR2/WR3 numbers this week.

 

22.           Brandon Marshall (@ Cle) – Marshall is looking more and more like the beast he is each week that goes in the books.  That five-yard stiff-arm he put to Houston CB Jason Allen pushing him into the endzone last weekend was priceless and worth watching again when you get the chance.  Not surprisingly, “Baby T.O.” is tied for the league lead in targets once again and will continue to head up the charts all season long.  Cleveland, however, has been lights out against the pass thus far (though they’ve only played against a 39-year old Kerry Collins and rookie Andy Dalton) with Joe Haden taking care of the opposing team’s top receiver.  Marshall could have a bit of trouble with Haden guarding him this weekend, but you really have to start him anyway.

 

23.           A.J. Green (vs SF) – The A.J. Green everyone was talking about before the season showed up in a big way last weekend against the Donkeys.  Ten catches on 14 targets for 124 yards and a TD are awesome numbers for ANY wide receiver, especially a rookie.  The 49ers pass D has taken a beating thus far giving up five TDs and 291 yards a game through two weeks, so Green looks primed for another nice fantasy game this Sunday.

 

24.           Julio Jones (@ TB) – If the Buccaneers stick CB Aqid Talib on Roddy White all day long, Julio could be poised for a breakout game this Sunday.  Last season, in their first matchup, the Falcons WR2 (Michael Jenkins) had more yards than Roddy over the course of the game.  In the second one, it was Jenkins who caught a TD pass, not Roddy.  If the trend sticks in their rivalry this season, Jones could very easily out-produce White in this one.

 

25.           Deion Branch (@ Buf) – The older he gets, the better Deion Branch looks.  Of course, Tom Brady and the Patriots offensive machine could have something to do with it, but you can’t ignore the fact that Branch has caught 15 of the 19 passes thrown his way (tied for second in the NFL) and turned them into 222 yards (sixth in the NFL) so far.  If this game turns into a point-scoring free-for-all like it should, Branch will have a good chance at catching his first TD of the season come Sunday.

 

26.           Jordy Nelson (@ Chi) – Nelson is clearly the WR2 on the Packers at this point and should be considered at least a WR3, if not a WR2 going forward.  So far this season, Jordy leads the team in receiving yards (161), is tied in TDs (2) and is second in targets from Aaron Rodgers (10).  The reason I have him ranked so low this week is because the Bears have kept the Packers passing game in check the past few seasons, but that could change with both their starting safeties out with injuries.  Regardless, this is Aaron Rodgers we’re talking about, so start Nelson as your WR3 and hope for the upside in this one.

 

27.           Reggie Wayne (vs Pit) – Even though the Colts offense is looking rather putrid, Reggie Wayne’s talent continues to shine through.  It’s tough when you have a weak-armed gray-beard like Kerry Collins throwing to you, but Reggie has found a way to squeeze out some nice fantasy points anyway.  I can’t help but think that Pittsburgh is going to knock Collins out of this game, so let’s hope Reggie finds a little fantasy magic before that happens.

 

28.           Nate Burleson (@ Min) – With all the attention opposing defenses are giving to Megatron, Burleson has emerged as a go-to guy for Stafford through two weeks.  He may not have a touchdown to show for it yet, but he leads the team in targets, receptions and yards so far and might not slow down all year long.  Indoors against a beatable Vikings pass D, Nate should be able to have himself another nice showing for fantasy owners.

 

29.           Robert Meachem (vs Hou) – Meachem has actually looked pretty darn good this season.  With Marques Colston still on the sidelines nursing an injury, Meach should be able to continue his recent success, especially with this game looking like a possible shootout in the making.  He’s caught a TD in each of the Saints first two games, and there’s nothing that says he can’t do it for a third week in a row.  Start him as your WR3 and hope for his upside to grab hold.

 

30.           Mike Sims-Walker (vs Bal) – Sims-Walker was targeted a massive 11 times last Monday night which he turned into six catches for 92 yards.  Baltimore still has a formidable defense, especially against the rush, so with Steven Jackson still on the mend, I expect Bradford to pass the ball over 40 times again this weekend.  If that’s the case, MSW could be in for another nice fantasy day.
