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.

FanDuel Triple Play - Pass Go Collect 2TDS


This Sunday is "National Play Monopoly day." What does that mean for FD? Absolutely nothing, but I'm taking a "chance" and grabbing these 3 players that have a bit higher price tag because that's how I won at Monopoly.

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                 (Updated:  Sunday, Oct. 7 - 11:16AM CT)


1.           Matt Ryan (@ Was) – Matt Ryan did it again last weekend against the Carolina Panthers and although Robert Griffin III is slightly ahead of him in race for the fantasy points crown, I think it’s safe to say that Ryan is the better play of the two in their head-to-head matchup this week. The reason being, of course, is that Matty Ice gets to play against the defensive side of Griffin’s team, a D which has been one of the worst against the pass all year long. It’s unbelievable to think that Ryan threw for 369 yards and three TDs last weekend despite only one catch for 30 yards from Julio Jones. With Julio coming back to form this week, I can’t wait to see the final stat-line on Ryan come Monday.


2.           Drew Brees (vs. SD - Sunday Night) – Brees still leads the league in passing attempts (191) after four weeks and is on pace for an astonishing 764 on the season. Will he break Drew Bledsoe’s single-season record of 691? It sure looks like it, but we’ll have to wait a little bit longer on that one while on this Sunday night, yet another long-standing record can be broken with one single pass. Drew Brees has thrown a touchdown in 47 straight games, a mark which currently has him tied with Hall of Fame QB Johnny Unitas and on the brink of breaking a record nobody ever thought would be broken. The Chargers pass D is right in the middle of the pack but because their rush D doesn’t let up a whole lot, you can expect Brees to throw the ball a ton yet again. With the home crowd rooting him on, it wouldn’t shock me if the record was broken on the Saints first possession.


3.           Tom Brady (vs. Den) – Last week I had Brady ranked in the top slot and encouraged his fantasy owners not to worry about his slow start. Hopefully his explosion against the Bills in Week 4 helped calm everyone’s nerves. Now that everything is right in the world with Brady back on track and in sync with the Slot Machine again, we can all sit back and enjoy this long-standing rivalry game between the Stetson Man and his arch-enemy, Peyton Manning. Of course, there will be a little something different this time around, but Brady will have just as much fun tearing up the Broncos secondary as he did the Colts. I mean, what’s the difference, right? Isn’t a Bronco just a unbroken Colt? Anyway, since Denver’s rush D doesn’t allow much on the ground, look for Tommy to toss the pill around en route to slightly better QB1 numbers than Manning in this one.


4.           Aaron Rodgers (@ Ind) – So even though I hated myself last week for using such a common expression, I mentioned that Rodgers was really “due for a big game”. He pulled through, of course, though it came against possibly the worst defense in the NFL—the New Orleans Saints. This weekend he’ll have another rather easy time tossing the pill around playing indoors against the Indianapolis Colts; though will almost assuredly be without one of his top two wideouts, Greg Jennings. Rodgers is one of the more creative QBs in the league, so it shouldn’t be too much of a problem. If Green Bay had a better running game, I’d mark Aaron down a few slots as the Colts can be demolished on the ground, but I can’t really say I’m sold on Benson carrying a team, so look for “Aaron It Out” to, well… air it out.


5.           Joe Flacco (@ KC) – Flacco has now made my top-10 QBs for three weeks in a row, something I never would have guessed would happen at this time last season. His control of the no-huddle offense has been outstanding thus far and I expect it to only get better as the year goes on. This week he’ll face a Chiefs defense that has allowed the seventh-most fantasy points/game to opposing QBs and even though they’ve improved a bit with CB Brandon Flowers back in the lineup, they’re still tied for the most passing TDs allowed this season with 10. Flacco’s only other time facing this team was back in Week 1 of the 2009 when he put up two career-firsts by throwing for 307 yards and three TDs.


6.           Robert Griffin III (vs. Atl) – Okay, I’m officially convinced he’s good. Okay, really good. Robert Griffin III still leads the league in fantasy points after four weeks of action and though he’s surprised me just about every single week, I believe he’ll have a tough time holding down his top spot this weekend with Matt Ryan just a few points behind and bringing his Falcons to town. However, there are a few things to like about this game for Griffin owners. First, the Redskins will likely go down early and need to rely on Griffin to get them back in the game. Second, Cam Newton just showed what a QB with wheels can do against them throwing for two TDs while adding another 86 yards and a TD on the ground. Third, and maybe most important, Pierre Garcon is back.


7.           Peyton Manning (@ NE) – Peyton has thrown for over 290 yards and two TDs a game this year and somehow sits just outside the top-10 fantasy QBs. This week he’ll have a real good chance of climbing back up into the top guys where he belongs, and he’ll get to do it against the biggest rival of his career, Tom Brady. Well, against the Patriots defense at least, which is again one of the worst against the pass this season allowing the third-most fantasy points to opposing QBs. During the last two weeks, Joe Flacco and Ryan Fitzpatrick combined to throw for 732 yards and seven TDs against this defense.


8.           Eli Manning (vs. Cle) – Eli Manning threw for 309 yards and two TDs last week—numbers that would normally be considered a good game—but coming in a loss to the Philadelphia Eagles, I’m sure he was hardly satisfied. This week he’ll be able to take his frustrations out on a Browns defense that has allowed the most fantasy points per game to opposing QBs this season. Whether or not he’ll have Hakeem Nicks to throw to is still up in the air, though it’s not looking good right now. Either way, Domenik Hixon did well enough in Hakeem’s place last week for Eli’s fantasy owners not to worry too much.


9.           Andy Dalton (vs. Mia) – Dalton has put up three straight games with 24 or more fantasy points and has been one of the bigger surprises of the young fantasy season. This week he’ll take on a Miami team that has allowed three 300-yard games in a row by Carson Palmer, Mark Sanchez and Kevin Kolb. In my estimation, Dalton is the best of the bunch and should be primed for a nice game. Considering the strength of the Dolphins run defense, it wouldn’t shock me to see the Bengals QB toss up 40 passes and maybe even sneak into the top-5 for the week.


10.       Philip Rivers (@ NO - Sunday Night) – With Gates having a bit of a down season and without a steady wide receiver to throw to on a consistent basis, Rivers fantasy numbers have suffered immensely. In real life, he’s led the Chargers to a 2-0 record on the road and 3-1 overall, but unless you’re a big San Diego fan, that doesn’t mean much to his owners. That being said, this is the best chance he’ll have to turn it around going up against a Saints defense that gives it up as much through the air as on the ground. With Drew Brees gunning for yet another passing record, I’m expecting a bit of a shootout this Sunday night so there should be a bunch of fantasy points to be had here by Rivers.
