Le'Veon Bell

Pittsburgh Steelers

Bell Lookin' To Get PAID!


“Steelers RB Le'Veon Bell will report back to team before regular season kicks off, though it remains unclear exactly when.” Bell values himself at about $15mm per year, your move Rooney.

Fantasy Goo: There is no doubt Bell is an elite RB1 when he is active, this hold-out makes me nervous. He might be staying in shape, but there is no way to really simulate game-speed without actually participating with the team. He missed 3 games last year and came in shredding defenses, but that is much different than missing camp completely.

Eddie Lacy

Seattle Seahawks

Seattle's Crowded Backfield


Seattle Seahawks RB Thomas Rawls ankle injury will hold him out of week 2 preseason action on Friday. It’s being called a minor injury and Eddie Lacy is now expected to be the starting tailback for the second preseason game.

Fantasy Goo: When it was first announced that Rawls would get the start I thought nothing of it, teams usually rest their banged-up players week 2 anyway. Week 3 is what we really care about, but if they’re resting Rawls this week that becomes somewhat questionable. We should probably consider this a full blown committee at this point, in which case you can read our “League Winners” article to see who I think is worthy of drafting in this backfield.

Andrew Luck

Indianapolis Colts

Indy Needs Some Luck


There has been quite a bit of concern about Andrew Luck’s availability to start the season on the active roster after offseason surgery. Hartbeat points out that, “Colts seem confident in Luck for week 1 as they haven't changed their playbook.” There is a concern about his offensive line though as starting C Ryan Kelly is likely to find himself on the designated IR for return after foot surgery.

Fantasy Goo: Luck put together a 2016 season with a career best 71.2 QBR and a 92.4 PFF grade. If he’s healthy he’s a must start, and his ADP has fallen nearly two rounds since August first. He is now being drafted as the eighth QB off the board. Check out the Draft Kit vol.3 to get the full goo.

Curtis Samuel

Carolina Panthers

Samuel Back in Pads


Curtis Samuel was back in full pads for today's practice (Wednesday), he has missed almost all of training camp with a hamstring problem that began as a issue in the spring. He's been out for so long that it's hard to see him having a immediate early-season role.

Fantasy Goo: Samuel is the ultimate utility knife if he can get healthy, he can pick up the big plays vacated by Ginn and match anything fellow rookie McCaffrey does in the passing game.

Ty Montgomery

Green Bay Packers

Green Bay Rookie's on Display


“Ty Montgomery’s likely absence from Saturday night’s preseason game at Washington will put an even bigger spotlight on the depth-chart battle involving three of Green Bay’s third-day draft picks. Williams is the front-runner in part because he’s shown the best aptitude for pass protection in the backfield. Jones has displayed a different gear in the open field that he’d love to show off in a game if he gets a crease. Mays is the best example of compact power, at 5-10 and 230 pounds.”

Fantasy Goo:Ty performed very well last year with the 3rd best juke rate of 34% and the best yards per contact per touch of all RBs at 2.8. The issue with Montgomery is Jamaal Williams is in line to take away the short yardage work and it’s unclear what type of volume Ty can handle as he rushed double digits in only 1 game.

Jaron Brown

Arizona Cardinals

Jaron Number Two?


Larry Fitzgerald is the No. 1 wideout. Brown? “He’s No. 2 right now,” Coach Bruce Arians said Tuesday.
“I’ve been here for a while,” Jaron Brown said. “Every camp is different. We obviously have injuries, and that gives me an opportunity. I just try to take advantage.

Fantasy Goo: I could see Jaron shooting up draft boards, and I like him as a last round dart throw, but this just makes that receiving corps all the more crowded. A torn ACL prevented Jaron from possibly breaking-out last year. Yesterday we thought JJ Nelson would emerge, I’m sure we will be re-visiting this regularly.

Cole Beasley

Dallas Cowboys

Beasley Under the Radar


NFL Next Gen Stats have revealed many of their numbers to the public recently. Hartbeat picked this one out on Twitter: Cole Beasley adding another advanced stat that he thrives in, Top 10 in separation among all pass catchers.

Fantasy Goo: Beasley was one of the most efficient weapons in the NFL last year. His Defense-adjusted Yards above Replacement and Defense-adjusted Value over Average ranked as 5th best among WRs. For more on Beasley and others check out the Pyro Pulse podcast episode 6, WR Tiers.

John Brown

Arizona Cardinals

John Brown’s Health Back in Question


WR John Brown looking like sickle cell IS NOT being managed by the Cardinals. Could be another injury plagued season for Brown. Arians said WR John Brown not practicing full time is a concern (He's been participating in certain drills during practice).

Fantasy Goo: JJ Nelson was the WR11 in PPR scoring weeks 13-17, it appears as though we should be drafting Nelson as one of our late round flyers immediately. If the Brown news continues to be negative we will begin to see Nelson’s stock rise. Jaron Brown and Chad Williams are names we should also keep an eye on, but Arians has complained about their lack of performance publicly.

Maxx Williams

Baltimore Ravens

Maxx Looks Slow, Open Door for Watson


“Tight end Maxx Williams deserves a ton of credit for persevering through a serious knee surgery and getting back onto the field this summer. But in watching him run, it’s still pretty clear that he has a ways to go. He has bulked up and gotten considerably stronger, so it will be interesting to see whether he becomes more of a blocking tight end, assuming he’s on the season-opening roster.”

fantasy Goo: Ben Watson appears to be worth a last round flier. Denis Pitta was the number eight TE overall last year and he only scored 2 TD’s. Watson was the number 6 TE in 2015 with Drew Brees throwing him 6 TD’s.

Ryan Mathews

Philadelphia Eagles

Ryan Matthews Released


After passing his physical earlier today, The Eagles have informed former starting RB Ryan Mathews that he's been released. This move was completely expected, the Eagles save a bunch of money by releasing him now.

Fantasy Goo: Hartbeat would like to see him land in: IND, SF, MIA or CHI (all backup roles). I think the Giants or Ravens should see what he has left in the tank, even if it’s just a few games Matthews is a talented back, he’s just been drenched with injuries. I don’t think the team that picks him up has to pay much for him.

Devonta Freeman

Atlanta Falcons

Freeman in Concussion Protocol


Coach Quinn says Devonta Freeman is in concussion protocol, will be ruled out for Sunday's game. This really means nothing if he’s back by next week, but if this lingers like Jay Ajayi’s concussion, Coleman might actually be worth his draft value in the sixth round.

Fantasy Goo: Despite being only 206 lbs he had the 3rd most RZ carries with 53. Although Coleman is an extremely strong receiver Freeman was still top 5 in catches among RBs on only a 63% snap share.

Leonard Fournette

Jacksonville Jaguars

Fournette Battling Same Issues


Jaguars rookie RB Leonard Fournette suffered a foot injury and HC Doug Marrone said team intends to be "careful with him." Fournette battled a recurring foot/ankle injury throughout his final season at LSU. It was a real problem most of the year.

Fantasy Goo: Fournette was clocked running 22.9 MPH at LSU last season, for reference Tyreek Hill was the NFLs fastest player at 23.2MPH. It appears as though Jacksonville is being cautious, but rookies need to get on the field and learn the nuances of the NFL, especially pass blocking.

Jordan Matthews

Buffalo Bills

Matthews Must Play With Pain


Bills' WR Jordan Mathews has what team is calling "a chip fracture in his sternum" and is week to week.
The good news is that it’s just a pain tolerance issue. The bad news is that it can be pretty painful.

Fantasy Goo: Matthews move to Buffalo had very little effect on his projections, but with lack of practice with his new team he will almost certainly get off to a slow start. Check the Pyro Pulse Podcast (Ep.5) to get the hot, sticky goo on how this affects the value of the other Bills and Eagles skill players.

Marqise Lee

Jacksonville Jaguars

Lee High Ankle Sprain Opens Door for Hurns, Again


Jaguars WR Marqise Lee suffered a high-ankle sprain, source said. He'll push hard to be ready for Week 1, but caution could push it back.

Fantasy Goo: Lee was the 39th overall pick of the 2014 draft. In 2016 he caught a career-high 63 passes for 851 yards and three touchdowns. He was finally healthy after continuous injuries the last two years. I think many would rank him higher if we could be sure that he has beaten Allen Hurns out for regular targets.

Jordan Reed

Washington Redskins

Reed Has "Special Shoes"


“Redskins tight end Jordan Reed said his new cleats and orthotics have made a difference for his sprained big toe. Reed said, "I'll be out there shortly." He remains on the PUP list.”

Fantasy Goo: Jay Gruden has made it very clear that the offense runs through Jordan Reed, this was never more prominent than when the Redskins let their two best WRs based on production walk this offseason. Reed has obviously red flags when it comes to injuries, he is one dirty hit away from a career ending concussion. When he is healthy, there is no TE that I would rather have, Reed has averaged the most fantasy points per game over the past two seasons and is targeted on a minimum of 15% of his routes.

Sterling Shepard

New York Giants

Shepard Back in Practice


“Just 11 days after he was carted off the practice field with an ankle injury fearing the worst, Shepard practiced fully with his teammates on Sunday. There appeared to be very few restrictions on the second-year receiver, who also didn't seem to be favoring his injured ankle at all.”

Fantasy Goo: Shepard finished second among rookie WRs in targets, catches, yards and touchdowns. In general, second year WRs see a jump in fantasy production by 16%, but Sterling is more likely to move in an inverse fashion. With the Giants bringing in Brandon Marshall and Evan Engram, Shepard is the most likely to see a decrease in targets. See Hartbeat, WR Gold Diggers vol.1 for more.

Robby Anderson

New York Jets

Robby With Early Bomb


With Enunwa out for the season the New York Jets will be looking for one of their young receivers to step-up. On their first drive Josh McCown connected with Robby Anderson for a 53 yard gain and finished the drive with a 4-yard TD pass to Charone Peake. Anderson finished the first half with three receptions for 71 yards.

Fantasy Goo: Anderson could be a nice late-round flyer, but this offense doesn’t project for much fire-power. Anderson projects for a 63/830/4 line and Peake is nothing more than a DFS GPP play or possible bye-week flyer.

Travis Kelce

Kansas City Chiefs

Kelce to Return Next Week


After the game, Chiefs coach Andy Reid provided an update on a few of those guys, specifically Travis Kelce. “They are close,” Reid noted of those three guys. “(They will) potentially get some work this next week, we’ll just see how it goes. They’ve got a big rehab session (Saturday), so we’ll see.”

Fantasy Goo: Since he fractured his patella in 2013 and missed his entire rookie campaign, Kelce has not missed a game. Kelce led all TEs last season in fantasy points, but he also thrived under advanced metrics, also leading the league in Success Rate on 65% of his plays. – Hartbeat
I five games without Maclin on the field over the past two years Kelce averages 2.76 more PPR points per game even though he did not score a TD in any of them.

Jay Ajayi

Miami Dolphins

Ajayi Still in Concussion Protocol


Running backs coach Danny Barrett believes Kenyan Drake could be an every-down back if Jay Ajayi misses multiple games. He said Drake is “more reliable, more dependable, being where he’s supposed to be – especially in our passing game”

Fantasy Goo: I’m not necessarily buying what they’re selling, but Ajayi out for 10 days so far does concern me. Gase was not happy with Ajayi to start last year and it was a work-ethic issue. A concussion requires medical clearance and cannot be put in the same category, but Gase seems to have the old-school mentality of, “you can’t make the club from the tub.” If Ajayi is out for any amount of time we can expect about a 50/50 split from Drake and Damien Williams, neither is built for work-horse carries.

2012 Week 1 Playoff Matchup - Cincinnati Bengals at Houston Texans

 

 

 

Minnesota @ Green Bay     Indianapolis @ Baltimore     Seattle @ Washington

 

 

 

 

Cincinnati @ Houston

 

(Player Rankings based on Top 8 QBs, 22 RBs, 32 WRs & 14 TEs)

 

 

 

Cincinnati Bengals (10-6)

 

 

Offensive Ranks

Cincinnati Rush Offense:  109.1 Yards/Game (18th) || 11 TDs (T-18th)

Cincinnati Pass Offense:  223.6 Yards/Game (17th) || 28 TDs (7th)

 

 

Opponent Defensive Ranks

Houston Rush Defense:  97.5 Yards Allowed/Game (7th) || 5 TDs Allowed (T-1st)

Houston Pass Defense:  225.8 Yards Allowed/Game (16th) || 29 TDs Allowed (T-26th)

 

 

Cincinnati Offensive Cast

 

 

Andy Dalton (QB Week 1 Playoff Fantasy Ranking: 6 of 8)

2012 Season:  329/528 for 3,669 Yards, 27 TDs and 16 INTs || 47 Carries for 120 Yards and 4 TDs

 

Andy Dalton is one of those quarterbacks where it doesn’t really matter if he’s at home or on the road as he pretty much puts up the same numbers no matter where he is. However, the Bengals themselves tend to win more when Dalton passes less, so don’t be surprised to see them try to control the clock with their running game. In games where their opponent ran the ball 25 times or more, the Houston Texans went 2-4, with those two wins coming against the Titans and Jaguars. I expect the Bengals coaching staff to know this. 


 

BenJarvus Green-Ellis (RB Week 1 Playoff Fantasy Ranking: 6 of 24)

2012 Season:  278 Carries for 1,094 Yards and 6 TDs || 22 Receptions for 104 Yards and 0 TDs

 

I have no doubt BenJarvus Green-Ellis did better this season than was expected, especially during a five-week stretch in the second half of the season when he put up four 100-yard games, three touchdowns and five straight double-digit fantasy performances. However, the Law Firm didn’t play in the Bengals Week 17 game after coming down with a hamstring injury in warm-ups, so he’s a bit on the cold side going into Saturday’s matchup with the Texans. That being said, he’s been practicing on a limited basis this week and should be fine come game-time. The formula to beat the Texans seems to be to run the ball at least 25 times in the game, so if he’s healthy enough to take it on, I anticipate a heavy workload for Green-Ellis.

 


Cedric Peerman (RB Week 1 Playoff Fantasy Ranking: 11 of 22)

2012 Season:  36 Carries for 258 Yards and 1 TD || 9 Receptions for 85 Yards and 0 TDs

 

Here are a couple of things you might not know about Cedric Peerman. First, he’s one of the fastest running backs in the NFL and was once clocked at 4.34 seconds in the 40-yard dash. Second, he’s an ordained minister. With the Houston Texans being possibly the best run-stuffing team in the NFL (unfortunately for Green-Ellis), the Bengals might do well to run outside a bit using a kid with both speed and God on his side.


 

Brian Leonard (RB Week 1 Playoff Fantasy Ranking: 18 of 22)

2012 Season:  33 Carries for 106 Yards and 0 TDs || 11 Receptions for 67 Yards and 0 TDs

 

Leonard has one touchdown in his six-year career and put up more than three fantasy points just once the entire season—in Week 17 when the Bengals sat Green-Ellis for the game. With the Law Firm back and Cedric Peerman also ready to go, Leonard’s chance of doing anything of significance is slim to none.


 

A.J. Green (WR Week 1 Playoff Fantasy Ranking: 3 of 32)

2012 Season:  97 Receptions for 1,350 Yards and 11 TDs

 

For quite a while there, A.J. Green was the gold standard to which all other fantasy wide receivers were compared. He was targeted a ton, made plenty of catches, had 100-yard games and my ohhhhh my, those weekly touchdowns. Recently, however, things haven’t been the same with Green putting up one just 100-yard and one touchdown over the final five weeks of the season. Still, the 6’4” receiver is a caged beast who could explode at any moment—especially on the road where he averaged 106.8 yards while catching six of his 11 TDs this season. Houston’s pass defense isn’t nearly as dominant as it was last season, so even though I expect Green to be double- and sometimes triple-teamed, he should still pull through with some nice numbers this playoff weekend.

 


Marvin Jones (WR Week 1 Playoff Fantasy Ranking: 17 of 32)
2012 Season:  18 Receptions for 201 Yards and 1 TD

 

Andrew Hawkins (WR Week 1 Playoff Fantasy Ranking: 21 of 32)

2012 Season:  51 Receptions for 533 Yards and 4 TDs

 

Brandon Tate (WR Week 1 Playoff Fantasy Ranking: 30 of 32)

2012 Season:  13 Receptions for 211 Yards and 1 TD

 

Jermaine Gresham (TE Week 1 Playoff Fantasy Ranking: 3 of 14)

2012 Season:  64 Receptions for 737 Yards and 5 TDs

 

Jermaine Gresham’s overall play this year has inched him into the top ten fantasy discussion heading into next season, though for myself, I’m still not completely convinced. He has most of you could ever want in a tight end, but a trend I’m finding to be quite bothersome so far in his career is his poor play down the stretch of a season, particularly over his team’s last five games. It’s as if his body never got past playing the shortened college schedule. Be that as it may, Gresham has a great matchup this playoff weekend going up against a Texans defense that allowed the most touchdowns and fourth most fantasy points to tight ends this season. Cinci will need him to step up if they want to win this game, so hopefully Jermaine can step it up for them.


 

 

 

Houston Texans (12-4) 

 

 

Offensive Ranks

Houston Rush Offense:  132.7 Yards/Game (8th) || 19 TDs (4th)

Houston Pass Offense:  239.4 Yards/Game (11th) || 22 TDs (T-18th)

 

 

Opponent Defensive Ranks

Cincinnati Rush Defense:  107.2 Yards Allowed/Game (12th) || 13 TDs Allowed (T-18th)

Cincinnati Pass Defense:  212.5 Yards Allowed/Game (7th) || 16 TDs Allowed (T-4th)

 

 

Houston Offensive Cast

 

 

Matt Schaub (QB Week 1 Playoff Fantasy Ranking: 7 of 8)

2012 Season:  350/544 for 4,008 Yards, 22 TDs and 12 INTs || 21 Carries for -9 Yards and 0 TDs

 

Schaub has his good games and his bad, though his best games usually come at home. That being said, I’m still not expecting much out of him this Saturday as Count Chuckula finished off the regular season about as poor as you could imagine. After tossing up just one touchdown and three interceptions in his last four games combined (three Texans losses), it would be fair to say that opposing defenses figured out how to stop them, so my guess is that a top-notch Bengals pass D will do the same.


 

Arian Foster (RB Week 1 Playoff Fantasy Ranking: 4 of 22)

2012 Season:  351 Carries for 1,424 Yards and 15 TDs || 40 Receptions for 217 Yards and 2 TDs

 

You can’t really say a guy was a bad fantasy player when he had more touchdowns than games played in a season, though I wouldn’t blame fantasy owners for feeling that way with the way Arian Foster performed in the last half of 2012. Is it possible the Texans overused him in the first half? Absolutely, but the bright side heading into the playoffs is that Foster has seen 20 or more touches in a game just once in the last five weeks, so he should be ready for a full load this Saturday. Look for Houston to do what they do best against the Bengals, which is to wear the defense down with one of the league’s best rushing attacks until inevitably; they finally break.


 

Ben Tate (RB Week 1 Playoff Fantasy Ranking: 12 of 22)

2012 Season:  65 Carries for 279 Yards and 2 TDs || 11 Receptions for 49 Yards and 0 TDs

 

Injuries aside, I expected more from Ben Tate this season. His future is still bright and he may even become the Texans lead back some day, but as for this weekend, I don’t expect to see him spell Foster for more than five to eight carries.


 

Justin Forsett (RB Week 1 Playoff Fantasy Ranking: 21 of 22)

2012 Season:  63 Carries for 374 Yards and 1 TD || 3 Receptions for 38 Yards and 0 TDs

 

The only way I see Forsett getting any play in this one is if Foster or Tate go down to injury.


 

Andre Johnson (WR Week 1 Playoff Fantasy Ranking: 1 of 32)

2012 Season:  112 Receptions for 1,598 Yards and 4 TDs

 

Old Man Johnson didn’t quite play his age this year, as it could easily be argued that despite his usual touchdown deficiency, Andre might very well have had the best season of his career in 2012. Cincinnati, however, has been one of the best at defending the pass all year long so ‘Dre will certainly have his work cut out for him this weekend. Last year when these two teams met in the first round of the playoffs, Johnson put up 90 yards and a touchdown on five catches (nine targets), numbers he may need to out-do if the Texans want to move on into the next round. I believe he will.


 

Kevin Walter (WR Week 1 Playoff Fantasy Ranking: 22 of 32)
2012 Season:  41 Receptions for 518 Yards and 2 TDs

 

DeVier Posey (WR Week 1 Playoff Fantasy Ranking: 25 of 32)

2012 Season:  6 Receptions for 87 Yards and 0 TDs

 

Keshawn Martin (WR Week 1 Playoff Fantasy Ranking: 29 of 32)

2012 Season:  10 Receptions for 85 Yards and 1 TD

 

Lestar Jean (WR Week 1 Playoff Fantasy Ranking: 31 of 32)

2012 Season:  6 Receptions for 151 Yards and 1 TD

 

Owen Daniels (TE Week 1 Playoff Fantasy Ranking: 5 of 14)

2012 Season:  62 Receptions for 716 Yards and 6 TDs

 

Owen Daniels has hit the skids as of late averaging just three catches for 32.2 yards with NO touchdowns over the last five weeks of the season. Some of it can be attributed to nagging injuries taking their toll, but the Texans offense as a whole hasn’t played very well either, and you can’t blame it all on Owen. Cincinnati can be had for a decent amount of catches and yardage, but a tight end hasn’t scored on them since Week 9, so don’t expect a slumping Daniels to suddenly pull a 180 here.


 

James Casey (TE Week 1 Playoff Fantasy Ranking: 10 of 14)

2012 Season:  34 Receptions for 330 Yards and 3 TDs

 

Garrett Graham (TE Week 1 Playoff Fantasy Ranking: 12 of 14)

2012 Season:  28 Receptions for 263 Yards and 3 TDs
