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.

Andy Dalton

Cincinnati Bengals

Red Rocket Time

Andy Dalton’s finishes last 3 weeks: QB9, QB12, QB6. Over the last 3 wks he is QB 7.
This week he faces Chicago whose pass defense over the past 3 games is allowing a QBR of 103, a 68% completion percentage, and 6th highest passing percentage for 1st downs.

Fantasy Goo: Dalton is a viable streamer this week, but I hesitate to rank him in the top 12. If you’re in the playoffs you’re probably just riding with what got you there, but if you’re stuck with a questionable match-up Dalton is a solid option. Also consider that while Chicago’s defense has looked good most of the year, their best games have been at home, this game is in Cincinnati.

Tyrod Taylor

Buffalo Bills

Sore Knee Opens Door for Peterman

Nathan Peterman has taken all the first-team reps and it would be utterly shocking if he’s not the starter in a game the Bills must win if they hope to entertain any further thoughts about staying alive in the AFC wild-card playoff chase.

Fantasy Goo: This is a dream match-up, but I wouldn’t consider starting Peterman after his last performance (5 Int’s). If Taylor is able to start we should probably pump the breaks on him as well. The match-up is great, but his knee is the issue holding him back, if he loses his rushing numbers he loses his fantasy upside.

Kenyan Drake

Miami Dolphins

Love the Drake

Per PFF, Percentage of Touches With At Least One Missed Tackle Forced:
Kenyan Drake: 25.7% (4th-best), Jay Ajayi: 15.7% (25th-of-50)

Fantasy Goo: Damien Williams is out so Drake should see 20+ touches, even in negative game-script he’ll get catches out of the backfield. When we are looking for a starting RB the first thing to look at is opportunity, and it’s definitely there this week.

Rex Burkhead

New England Patriots

The Belichick Shuffle

Rex Burkhead has scored a touchdown once every 13.2 touches. Alvin Kamara has scored a touchdown once every 13.3 touches.

Fantasy Goo: Burkhead has seen as many touches as Lewis over the past two weeks and is getting goal-line carries, against Miami this week I’ll consider them both RB2’s.

Devin Funchess

Carolina Panthers

Momentum vs Match-Up

Since Kelvin Benjamin was traded, Devin Funchess has averaged 18.4 PPR PPG. That would be good enough for the WR5 on the full season.

Fantasy Goo: Funchess will be facing Xavier Rhodes this week, Rhodes has been slowed by injuries over the past few weeks, but seems to be coming back to health. I’m certainly not considering him as a WR1 this week and if you’re in the playoffs you probably have other options, but if you don’t go with what got you there.

Mark Ingram

New Orleans Saints

Pair of Aces

The Panthers allowed more RB1 games in Week 13 (2) than they had the rest of the season combined (1).

Fantasy Goo: The Saints running game is for real, Kamara and Ingram are both must-starts. They could shred a middle-of-the-road run defense like Atlanta.

Player Rankings Large - Week 3




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.
