Pyro original fantasy football player news.


Jay Ajayi

Miami Dolphins

Run Anywhere Else


When Jay Ajayi runs to either side of Jermon Bushrod the Dolphins starting right guard (7 or 8 holes) he averaged 2.97 yards per rush. When Jay Ajayi ran on plays designed for any other holes he averaged 6.04 yards per.

Fantasy Goo: Bushrod was clearly the weak link in Miami's line finishing the year with a 43 PFF Player grade. Look for Miami to try to replace him with Kraig Urbik or Jesse Davis once training camps roll in.

D'Onta Foreman

Houston Texans

Texans Rookie Gets Caught with Stoned Friend


Big news of D’Onta Foreman’s arrest came on Sunday (7/16) and because everyone is in front of their computers, the news splashed Twitter into a frenzy. The gun he had was legal, his passenger is taking the fall for the weed.

Fantasy Goo: If he’s clean on the piss test, absolutely nothing happens, maybe a 1-2 game suspension at most. He does take a hit in dynasty if he fails the drug test, buy low.

Jarvis Landry

Miami Dolphins

Deadline Set for Miami to Re-Sign Landry


Landry will not negotiate his contract after the season begins. I’m not so sure Landry is in Miami’s future plans. They surely won’t franchise him for $18 million next year and they just gave Kenny Stills a nice contract.

Fantasy Goo:I believe Miami has high hopes for DeVante Parker becoming the wide receiver one they drafted him to be. That may be a tall task with Tannehill running the show, but Parker appears to be far more committed to improving this year.

Carlos Hyde

San Francisco 49ers

The 49ers Backfield Community


Reports out of SF say that Hyde has to earn the starting job. SF drafted two running backs and signed several free agents in the off-season including Tim Hightower and Kyle Juszczyk. If Hyde stays healthy there’s little doubt he earns the job, but he’s in the last year of his contract so if SF has their expected slow start I expect them to turn to their other options quickly.

Fantasy Goo: There are also reports that Hyde doesn’t fit into the Shanahan system well, he’s a tremendous athlete, but this is the time of year to pay attention to the negative information when we usually see nothing but fluff.

Virgil Green

Denver Broncos

Denver Tight End Job Up for Grabs


The team did select tight end Jake Butt in the 2017 NFL draft, but a knee injury suffered in Michigan’s bowl game may keep the talented rookie out of action for this entire season.

Fantasy Goo: Virgil Green is a blocker and AJ Derby is a natural athlete that converted to TE from QB, they believe he can be used in many ways and McCoy’s offense can use a third pass-catcher. Derby isn’t worth drafting, but we may want to keep an eye on him.

Demaryius Thomas

Denver Broncos

Denver Receivers Excited for New Offense


“We’ve got this new offense with Mike McCoy. We’re going to be throwing the ball around so my conditioning has to be up and I’ve been working on that.’’
Sanders is working on a healthier lifestyle and getting ready for a high paced offense. Thomas is just happy to get his favorite play back in the rotation (WR screen).

Fantasy Goo: Thomas’ ADP is rising to the second round, while Sanders’ is hanging around in the late fifth. If you miss on Thomas keep an eye on Sanders slipping to you. While we’re not sure who the QB will be, these two should be just fine where they are being drafted.

Doug Martin

Tampa Bay Buccaneers

McNichols Working on Pass Catching Skills


Jeremy McNichols has been working with the Bucs wide receivers. He's going basically undrafted, McNichols may be worth a late round flyer if you’re in a FFPC (28 round) draft, but we have to see what happens in camp before we can judge this one.

Fantasy Goo: Doug Martin’s ADP has risen to the point where he’s getting way too expensive. If he’s hanging around in the ninth or tenth he might be worth a shot, but there are probably better options to choose from before that point.

Frank Gore

Indianapolis Colts

Opportunities in Colts Backfield


“As long as I’m healthy and my guys up front get me the opportunities, I’m going to be successful,’’ Gore said.
Offensive coordinator Rob Chudzinski remains squarely in Gore’s corner, but there figures to be more of a backs-by-committee approach this season. “You can go a lot of different directions in that you can feature more things or different things with different people,’’ he said. “Some of that will be personnel-driven.’’

Fantasy Goo: With no improvements to the O-line, Robert Turbin showing life in camp, and Marlon Mack being drafted, I don’t see how Gore improves on last year’s total. He keeps on ticking like the energizer bunny, but I think that cliff is close. I’ve been high on him every year until now.

Eric Ebron

Detroit Lions

Ebron to see more red-zone targets?


Ebron’s ADP has risen 2-3 rounds, depending on your scoring, in the past two months. Everyone seems to think that Ebron will see more red-zone looks this year with Boldin’s 22 RZ targets leaving town. He has a very safe floor so there’s no real downside to drafting him in the eighth round or later.

Fantasy Goo: I’m going to keep an eye on Boldin as well, he hasn’t signed with another team yet, and he’s not finished playing. Detroit is still on the list of places he could end up.

Gerald Everett

Los Angeles Rams

Higbee opens door for Everett


“Receiver Mike Thomas on Friday was suspended for the Rams’ first four games of the regular season because of a doping violation, and tight end Tyler Higbee entered into a plea agreement in connection with an incident that left a man hospitalized.”

Fantasy Goo: This could leave the door open for rookie Gerald Everett to get some major playing time right from the start. There will be plenty of hands in the pot for targets and we certainly aren’t looking for an explosive offense from the Rams, but this is something to keep an eye on as camps begin.

George Kittle

San Francisco 49ers

Sleeper Alert: Kittle


Jon Lynch and the people in San Francisco have been raving about the performance of George Kittle in pre-season practices.

Fantasy Goo: As of now Kittle would still be behind Vance McDonald in the pecking order, but keep Kittle in the back of your mind as a potential sleeper at TE in 2017. But remember - he still is a rookie TE.

Christian McCaffrey

Carolina Panthers

Rookie Slow Your Role


"McCaffrey, while not nearly as big and strong as Stewart, could be effective as a ball-carrier in a power scheme – something he showed throughout his career at Stanford. It’ll be interesting to see how the carries are divvied out week to week."

Fantasy Goo: I expect McCaffery to have numbers comparable to the above-average pass-catching backs, maybe a ceiling of 2013 & 2015 Danny Woodhead (or 2011 Jonathan Stewart), he’s being drafted way too early for redraft with a MFL10 ADP of 35 overall/ RB15.

Jonathan Stewart

Carolina Panthers

Stewart Not Done Yet


"Everyone from head coach Ron Rivera to running backs coach Jim Skipper has insisted that Stewart’s role will not change. And Stewart himself has made it clear he’s not at all concerned. The punishing 240-pound runner will continue to see the bulk of the carries."

Fantasy Goo: Fantasy Goo: With a MFL10 ADP in the 12th round Stewart is a steal right now, although the news is getting out and his ADP has started to rise since this article was released.

Derek Carr

Oakland Raiders

Get Money, Get Paid


The Raiders have locked up their QB for the future by giving him the richest contract in NFL history. Carr signed the extension for 5 years $125 million.

Fantasy Goo: We all expected Carr to be in Oakland for the foreseeable future, however there has been a history of players having down years right after inking big deals. Be on the look out for any news that implies Carr is getting complacent with his money. Otherwise, Carr is still a low end QB1 with some weekly upside.

Marquess Wilson

Chicago Bears

Jets Add Another Former Bear WR


After letting Brandon Marshall walk to the other locker room in NJ and releasing Decker, the Jets are starting to fill the void at WR with Marquess Wilson.

Fantasy Goo: Wilson isn't draft worthy as of now, but he has shown flashes in the pan with some big games. Keep him on your radar through the season as he could provide some strong weeks as bye week fill ins.

Christine Michael

Seattle Seahawks

The Asleepening: Michael to IR


Christine Michael will not be available for the Colts in 2017. He was placed on the IR.

Fantasy Goo: Robert Turbin has been getting hyped, as has their rookie Marlon Mack. With Michael out of the picture we will have a more clear idea on who will end up being the 34 year old running back's handcuff.

Eric Decker

New York Jets

Decker To Pursue Country Music Career


Nashville by far was the most exciting landing spot for the Decker's. Eric gets to play with the up and coming QB sensation, Marcus Mariota. And his wife, Jessie James gets to pursue her country music career.

Fantasy Goo: The Titans have turner their WR core from one of the worst in 2016 to potentially the best. Decker will likely play the slot and make his biggest contribution in the Red Zone, with a QB who is yet to throw a Red Zone pick in his career. Get your popcorn ready Nashville.

Eric Decker

New York Jets

Jets Release Decker


After trying to find a trade partner for Decker, the Jets have pulled the plug. Making Decker the most attractive free agent after the recent Maclin signing.

Fantasy Goo: The Jets passing attack could still be fantasy relevant as all signs point towards a season of tanking. Similar to the last few years in Jacksonville, expect the Jets to be passing heavily to Enunwa, Stewart and Anderson in negative game scripts.

Jeremy Maclin

Kansas City Chiefs

Maclin, Crab Cakes and Football


Crab cakes and football! Thanks what Jeremy Maclin is about for the next two years as he signs with the Ravens to add some depth at WR. Maclin will likely work out of the slot with Wallace an Perriman working the outsides.

Fantasy Goo: There will be plenty of balls to go around as the Ravens have led the NFL in pass attempts for the past two years, and the departures of Pitta and Smith leave another 223 vacated targets. Maclin will certainly benefit from the pass happy offense coming from a conservative KC offense that threw the ball 130 less times last season.

John Brown

Arizona Cardinals

Uh Oh - Brown Tweaks Hammy


John Brown tweaked his hamstring in Cardinals mandatory camp. Soft tissue injuries tend to linger.

Fantasy Goo: Refer to Alshon Jeffrey for how bad soft tissue injuries can linger. If John Brown is limited by this expect another disappointing season from the speedy WR who also suffers from sickle cell conditions.

WR Player Rankings – Week 4

 

 

 

QB Rankings  RB Rankings  TE Rankings

 

Wide Receivers

 

 

1.               Mike Wallace (@ Hou) – Did you know that since the beginning of the 2010 season, Mike Wallace has the most receiving yards in the league with 1,634 and is tied for sixth in TDs with 12? The numbers may be a bit surprising to you, but it’s clear Wallace and Ben Roethlisberger have one of the best rapports in the league right now as they’ve combined for 72 receptions on 110 targets for 1,423 yards and 10 TDs in their last 15 games together. Wallace also has a string of six straight regular season games with 100-plus yards going, a streak I believe continues in what could end up being a shootout down in the warm air of Texas.

 

2.               Calvin Johnson (@ Dal) – The last time we saw such an impressive touchdown streak from a receiver was from Dwayne Bowe last season when he put up 13 touchdowns in just seven weeks of action. With the way Megatron and QB Matthew Stafford are dominating right now, another such run looks like it could be in the works. Dallas is by no means unbeatable through the air, especially with a banged up secondary, so I expect Calvin to go off once again this Sunday. Even if they were completely healthy, Megatron has become almost impossible to cover (especially in the red-zone) without throwing three defenders at him.

 

3.               Hakeem Nicks (@ Ari) – Nicks has gotten off to somewhat of a slow start for a WR1 this year, but things should start to look up after Sunday. The good news starts with Mario Manningham’s return from a concussion this weekend, but it gets even better with the emergence of Victor Cruz forcing defenses to maybe leave Hakeem in single-coverage on a regular basis from now on. The Cardinals pass D, as it was in 2010, resides near the bottom of the league this year so Nicks should have no trouble putting up some major fantasy points.

 

4.               Wes Welker (@ Oak) – Welker continues to amaze me to the point of near speechlessness. The clinic he put on last week against the Bills was quite a spectacle coming up with 16 catches for 217 yards and two TDs. My goodness! With the way Tom Brady is playing, it doesn’t really matter what kind of pass defense the other team has, but Oakland has allowed the fifth-most receiving yards in the league so far and should take another severe beatdown from Welker and Co. on Sunday.

 

5.               Steve Johnson (@ Cin) – Stevie Johnson is for real, people. He’s not just another exuberant flash in the pan so often seen at the wide receiver position; he actually has the skills to back it all up. The Bengals look like they have a better rush defense than many predicted, but the Bills will catch on to it pretty quick and turn the game over to Ryan Fitzpatrick and his receiving corps. Johnson should receive another 10-plus targets this Sunday, enough to do some serious damage like he normally does with that type of volume.

 

6.               Vincent Jackson (vs. Mia) – V-Jax hasn’t received nearly the amount of attention that he should be from Rivers so far this season, yet he still ranks in the top-10 in fantasy points thus far. IN his last game against the Dolphins, Jackson went for 120 yards on five catches, numbers he should easily be able to reach against a Dolphins team that has given up the most receiving TDs in the league and third most yardage against through three weeks of the season.

 

7.               Roddy White (@ Sea) – Just when you thought his numbers may be on the decline, Roddy turns in his finest game of the season putting up 140 yards on nine catches (on 17 targets!) against the Bucs last week. Matt Ryan knows where his bread is buttered, so look for him to continue getting Roddy the ball a ton in the weeks to come. Seattle has a pretty decent rush D, so Atlanta may throw the ball a good 30-35 times in this game, which is quite enough for White to put up some good fantasy numbers.

 

8.               Larry Fitzgerald (vs. NYG) – Larry needs to see more balls thrown his way after averaging just eight targets per game over the first three weeks. Count on that happening against the Giants this Sunday with New York allowing the seventh most fantasy points to opposing receivers so far this season. The Giants secondary is still hurting a bunch, so if the Cards offensive line can buy Kolb enough time in the pocket to throw the ball, Fitz should be able to capitalize in a big way.

 

9.               Andre Johnson (vs. Pit) – Pittsburgh’s pass D isn’t as good as their number one ranking so far in 2011, but they were one of only three teams in the league last season to record more interceptions than passing TDs allowed. Not that it really matters too much against ‘Dre, as he is one of the most unguardable WRs in the game and currently on pace to set a bunch of career marks. His hot start will need to carry over into this week if the Texans want to beat the Steelers, and I believe it will. Big-time players step up in big-time games. Andre is one of those guys.

 

10.           Greg Jennings (vs. Den) – If Champ Bailey is out another week for the Donkeys, which it looks like he will be, then Jennings should be in line for a huge fantasy day in this one. The Broncos have allowed five TDs without grabbing and interception thus far and have allowed a passer rating of 106.8 to opposing QBs. Greg hasn’t put up less than double-digit fantasy points in any week so far this season, and I don’t expect this to be the game that breaks the streak. I expect top-10 WR fantasy numbers with an upside of being in the top three.

 

11.           DeSean Jackson (vs. SF) – DeSean has been inexistent since his Week One onslaught, but that could change in a big way this weekend. As was the case in that first game, Jeremy Maclin might not be able to suit up for this one thus making D-Jax the clear-cut number one target for Vick to throw to. Jackson has a tendency to disappear for a couple weeks at a time, only to reemerge with a monster game a few weeks later. San Fran’s pass D is average at best and with their rush D being as good as it is, I expect the Eagles to toss the pill around quite a bit.

 

12.           Dez Bryant (vs. Det) – Clearly Bryant wasn’t playing at 100 percent last Monday night against the Redskins, but he should be a lot closer to it with another week of treatment. Miles Austin will be sitting out once again on Sunday so Dez will be the go-to guy for Romo for at least another game. Detroit’s pass defense has been extremely improved this season, but Bryant’s skills should be able to overcome whatever the Lions throw at him. Expect a big day in what might turn out to be a high scoring affair.

 

13.           Brandon Marshall (@ SD) – Marshall was held in check by Joe Haden and the Browns last weekend, but the Chargers depleted secondary won’t be able to repeat their efforts. Baby T.O. is currently tied for fifth in the league in targets with 31 and should see at least double-digit balls thrown his way again on Sunday. San Diego may not have let up a ton of receiving yardage through three weeks, but that doesn’t mean they’ve played well as they’ve already given up six TDs and allow the second highest passer rating to QBs. Marshall should be able to put up some decent yardage and possibly his second touchdown of the year this weekend.

 

14.           Santana Moss (@ StL) – Moss has been as consistent as almost any other receiver in the league this year and should be in lineups as a WR2 or WR3 every week. Indoors against the Rams, Santana will be able to use his quickness to his advantage and should grab at least six balls from Grossman come Sunday. Moss had six catches for 124 yards and a TD against this team last season and I expect close to the same against a defense that has allowed the second most fantasy points to WRs this year.

 

15.           Dwayne Bowe (vs. Min) – With Jamaal Charles done for the season, I expect Bowe to see a large quantity of targets from Matt Cassel on a weekly basis from here on out. He’s easily the most talented player on the team at this point and needs to be used as such if the Chiefs even want a chance to win games. Minnesota’s pass D has allowed an average of 299 yards passing a game so far this year, and though I don’t expect Cassel to hit that mark, he should be able to throw for at least 225 yards with Bowe being on the receiving end for maybe 100 of them.

 

16.           Santonio Holmes (@ Bal) – Santonio can be an extremely frustrating fantasy player to own as you never really know when he’ll bust out for a big game. His 100-yard games are few and far between, but he does seem to catch the big touchdown whenever it’s needed. He didn’t get to face Baltimore last year in Week One due to his suspension, but in the seven times he faced them since 2007 (including playoffs) while playing in Pittsburgh, Holmes actually had a touchdown in every single one of those seven games. I know the Jets are a different team, but sometimes you just have a thing for playing certain squads. Baltimore seems to be Santonio’s “I-Own-You” team. Get him in your lineup.

 

17.           Brandon Lloyd (@ GB) – Despite WR Eric Decker getting a ton of Kyle Orton’s attention lately, Brandon Lloyd is still clearly the most talented guy for him to throw, and he will against the Packers. My guess is that Green Bay will go up on the Donkeys pretty quickly in this one, thus forcing Orton to pass the ball all over the place for a chance to win. The Packers rush D won’t allow McGahee or Moreno to do anything against them anyway, so I expect Lloyd to be looked to quite a bit for yardage against a suddenly beatable Green Bay pass D.

 

18.           Jeremy Maclin (vs. SF) – (If healthy enough to play) – If Maclin and his bum hamstring aren’t able to get out there on Sunday, you obviously have to sit him back down on your bench. However, if Jeremy suits up, this is a prime matchup for him to turn in a nice fantasy performance with the ‘Niners being relatively weak in the secondary and strong along the front line. Watch the news coming out of Philly closely these next few days to see what the story is here.

 

19.           Reggie Wayne (@ TB) – Wayne obviously has no chance to be that dependable number one fantasy receiver we’ve all come to know over the last seven seasons, but that doesn’t mean he’ll be completely useless either. Kerry Collins isn’t a tenth of the QB Peyton Manning is, as plainly shown by Reggie being able to catch just 14 of the 32 targets he’s seen on the season, but at least he’s trying to get him the ball. Tampa doesn’t have the greatest secondary, so even if they stick CB Aqid Talib on him all game, Reggie should still be able to come up with some decent WR2 fantasy numbers by game’s end.

 

20.           Mike Williams – TB (vs. Ind) – Talk about slow starts! Those who expected Williams to come close to being a WR1 in fantasy this season have been disappointed to the utmost degree thus far. Opposing defenses have figured out that the Bucs really don’t have anyone else to throw to, so putting Big Mike in double-coverage is pretty much a no-brainer for them. That said, it looks like Freeman is still trying to get him the ball and will continue to do so until Williams breaks out. Against a very mediocre Colts D, this could be the week.

 

21.           Julio Jones (@ Sea) – Welcome to the NFL Mr. Jones! Last week was Julio Jones’ coming out party where he put up 115 yards on six catches against the inter-division rival Buccaneers with their star CB Aqib Talib covering him. If all the ultra-talented receiver needed to bust out of his shell was a little confidence, he certainly got it last Sunday. In Week 4, Jones will face an underrated Seahawks D that kept Larry Fitzgerald relatively in check last weekend, but I fully expect him to strut his stuff against their number two CB.

 

22.           Lance Moore (@ Jax) – With Colston out of the lineup, Lance was Brees’ go-to guy last weekend as he caught all nine of his targets for 88 yards and a TD against the Texans. Colston should be out again in Week 4, so I expect the result to be the same. Moore will be good for at least six catches, probably more, and maybe a good 75 yards or so with a chance of a TD in this one. Book it.

 

23.           Denarius Moore (vs. NE) – Denarius Moore looks like this year’s Mike Williams (TB) so far, and I doubt he slows down in Week 4. Playing against the Patriots in what should be another high-scoring affair, I expect Moore to be turned to often by Jason Campbell this Sunday. With WR Jacoby Ford back in the lineup, Denarius will find himself in single-coverage whenever he’s out on the field, a game-plan which has so far proven to be useless against Moore’s superior will for the ball. He’ll do it again this Sunday, so make sure you keep him in your lineup until someone slows him down.

 

24.           A.J. Green (vs. Buf) – As it usually is with rookies, no matter the position; A.J. Green has been expectedly inconsistent so far this season. However, with Buffalo becoming a high-scoring team this season, my bet is that Cincinnati will have to pass the ball a bunch to keep up with them.  If Green can get a good eight to ten targets from Andy Dalton on Sunday, he’ll be in line for a nice game. If for some reason this turns into a battle in the trenches, obviously Green’s fantasy value will suffer. He’s a high-risk, high-reward WR3/flex play this week.

 

25.           Steve Smith – Car (@ Chi) – Believe me, I know what Steve Smith can do and so far this season, he’s looked outstanding and completely rejuvenated with Cam Newton at the helm. Against this Bears Cover-2 pass D, however, I just don’t see the huge fantasy numbers coming this week. Chicago won’t let Smitty behind them on deep routes while their speed and tackling skills are elite enough to keep Stevie’s yards-after-the-catch ability in check. He might catch a bunch of balls, which is great for PPR leagues, but I’m not expecting 100 yards or a touchdown.

 

26.           Mario Manningham (@ Ari) – If Manningham is as good to go as he said he was after Wednesday’s practice, he should be able to put up some nice fantasy stats against this porous Arizona pass D. You know he’ll be up for this game as he doesn’t want to get “Wally Pipp’ed” out of the starting lineup by New York’s newest fan-favorite, Victor Cruz, so I expect some pretty good fantasy work from him this weekend.

 

27.           Sidney Rice (vs. Atl) – Rice stepped onto the field for the first time last weekend and immediately became Tarvaris Jackson’s go-to guy as he caught eight of his 10 targets for 109 yards against the Cardinals. Obviously Tarvaris isn’t quite an elite QB, but he does have a past with Sidney to refer to so I expect Rice to continue getting a ton of balls thrown his way from here on out. Against a Falcons pass D that ranks near the bottom of the league, Rice is a good WR3 with nice upside.

 

28.           Percy Harvin (@ KC) – The Vikings have to get Harvin the ball more starting this weekend if they ever want to win a game. Against a banged up Kansas City team, I’m betting on it happening this Sunday. Whether he’s running the ball or catching it, Harvin should get at least 10 touches in this one and might even get as many as 15 or so. If he does, the fantasy stats will be there enough to warrant a WR3/flex start on your team.

 

29.           Jordy Nelson (vs. Den) – The Packers offense is pretty unstoppable at this point and Nelson seems to have grabbed a good hold of its WR2 slot. My guess is that Rodgers tries to get his team off to an early lead by passing all over this porous Denver pass D, so Nelson could be in line for a good seven to ten targets from which he’ll be able to put up some real nice fantasy numbers. The downside is if Rodgers happens to use his other multitude of weapons to score early before the Pack turns to the running game to run out the clock. Play him as a WR3 with very nice upside this weekend.

 

30.           Deion Branch (@ Oak) – Last week against the Bills had to have been one of the flukier games in Deion Branch’s career. In a game where Brady threw for four touchdowns and 387 yards on 30 completions, Branch failed to log a single reception on his three targets. Believe me that will not happen again. The Patriots will continue to throw like crazy and Branch will be involved as much as he had been up until last week. I expect at least five or six catches and a good amount of yardage from his this week against a beatable Raiders secondary.
