Eric Ebron

Detroit Lions

Ebron Could Use Some Luck


Colts signed TE Eric Ebron, formerly of the Lions, to a two-year contract. Coach Frank Reich called Ebron an "elite tight end."

The last time we saw Andrew Luck healthy (2016), the Colts used 2+ TE sets at the 3rd-highest rate in the NFL and had the 6th-highest target share to TEs.

Carlos Hyde

San Francisco 49ers

Hyde and Seek


Browns agreed to terms with RB Carlos Hyde, formerly of the 49ers, on a three-year, $15 million contract.

Obtaining Hyde has several trickle-down effects; first it replaces Crowell who signed with the Jets, it probably diminishes Duke Johnson’s value a bit. Hyde is a better all-around back than Crowell was and will certainly take over the goal-line work seeing that he’s got 20+ pounds on Duke. It also reduces the likelihood that Cleveland takes Saquon Barkley with the 4th pick in the draft. They will most likely look to draft a defensive player (Chubb) or trade down again.

Jerick McKinnon

Minnesota Vikings

McKinnon Goes West For Gold-Rush


49ers agreed to terms with RB Jerick McKinnon, formerly of the Vikings, on a four-year, $30 million contract.

McKinnon averaged a ho-hum 3.8 yards a carry for the Vikings and scored three rushing touchdowns. By contrast, San Francisco's former lead runner, Carlos Hyde, averaged 3.9 yards an attempt in 2017 and had eight rushing touchdowns.

It appears as though Shanahan is enamored with McKinnon's athletic metrics, but I'm not so sure he was "pounding the table" to get him. This move could push the Niner's to cut Joe Williams.

Mike Wallace

Baltimore Ravens

Eagles Keep Improving


Eagles signed WR Mike Wallace to a one-year contract.
Mike Wallace can still move posting a top five max speed among wide receivers last season. He will fill the void left by Torrey Smith as a speed vertical threat.

Terrelle Pryor

Washington Redskins

Jets Searching For Weapons


Jets agreed to terms with WR Terrelle Pryor, formerly of Washington and Cleveland.

Second year in a row on a new team doesn’t really help Pryor's cause, but I like the idea of him on the field with Teddy Bridgewater at some point. I would imagine, with some creativity, the Jets could really design some innovative gadget plays.
The Jets receiving corps really looks like a bunch of question marks at this point though, no telling what the week-to-week outcome will be with these guys.
Jermaine Kearse: 65 catches, 810 yards, 5 touchdowns (2017)
Robby Anderson: 63 catches, 941 yards, 7 touchdowns (2017)
Quincy Enunwa: 58 catches, 857 yards, 4 touchdowns (2016)
Terrelle Pryor: 77 catches, 1007 yards, 4 touchdowns (2016)

Carlos Henderson

Denver Broncos

Sleeper Watch


Broncos coach Vance Joseph said the team is "counting on" Carlos Henderson making an impact in 2018.

If you are paying attention to Staggs projections there is plenty of opportunity for Henderson to step into a solid number of targets in the slot. Henderson was hindered by injury and awful QB play last year. Being drafted in the 18th round or later in best-ball leagues, Henderson is the late round flyer that should be on your radar.

Ben Watson

Baltimore Ravens

Watson Returns To Big Easy


Saints signed TE Ben Watson, formerly of the Ravens, to a one-year contract.

Watson had 74 catches on 110 targets for 825 yards and 6 TD’s when he was with the Saints in 2015. After missing 2016 he had a pretty good year with Baltimore last year despite an anemic offense, with 61 catches on 79 targets for 522 yards and 4 TD’s. He’s not a bad late round flyer TE. He’s basically free right now, but I expect by the time the season starts he’ll be being drafted within the top 20 at the position.

Jeff Janis

Green Bay Packers

Janis Truthers Challenged


Browns officially signed former Packers’ WR Jeff Janis.
The combine superstar never amounted to anything in Green Bay, I highly doubt Cleveland is the place for him to finally break-out.

Thomas Rawls

Seattle Seahawks

Jets Sign Rawls


Rawls had five RB1 games in 2015, one in 2016, and has been a disappointment since. He’s not worth your time in fantasy, but he could cause enough disruption in the Jets backfield to cut any upside we might have hoped for from Isaiah Crowell.

Allen Robinson

Jacksonville Jaguars

Coo coo ca choo Mr. Robinson


Bears signed WR Allen Robinson, formerly of the Jaguars, to a three-year, $42 million contract.

This is a great move for Robinson and Chicago. Nagy’s offense and the young QB, Trubiski, should benefit Robinson at least as much as Bortles did, and Chicago gets the top WR in free agency.
Everyone on the team will be in a new scheme so there will be an adjustment, but as they start to gel we should see a big second half. Robinson’s recovery from a torn ACL doesn’t scare me away from drafting him in the late third/early fourth, his current MFL10 ADP is 43 overall while his Draft app ADP is 59.9. I expect Robinson to be somewhere in the range of 75 receptions, for 1100 yards and 8 TD’s.

Sammy Watkins

Los Angeles Rams

KC Building Strong Air Attack


Chiefs signed Sammy Watkins, formerly of the Rams, to a three-year, $48 million contract.

I’m a big Sammy truther so getting him in the 5th or 6th round is a pure power move. His current Draft app ADP of 87.1 is an absolute steal, his MFL10 ADP of 69.5 is still a great value in my opinion. There are quite a few options for high targets in KC so I don’t expect him to see the 128 targets he saw his rookie year, but he should definitely see more than the 70 he saw last year. He’ll have an entire offseason to work with the near-rookie QB, and at age 25 he should have enough burst left to have a 70 catch, 1050 yd, 8TD line. For his career he has 16 receptions on 30 targets for 12 TD’s in the Red Zone, and 9 receptions on 13 targets, for 8 TD’s inside the opponents 10. He should be the exact WR the Chiefs need to get over the hump. As a team the Chiefs were 34/75 for 13 TD’s in the Red-Zone last year and 12/24 for 10 TD inside the 10.

Kirk Cousins

Washington Redskins

Vikings Like That


Kirk Cousins plans to sign a three-year, fully-guaranteed contract from the Minnesota Vikings on Thursday. The deal is believed to be for around $86 million, and reports are it will be fully-guaranteed, a landmark for an NFL free agent.

Should be a lateral move for Kirk as far as fantasy, better WR’s, but fewer passes thrown in this offense. A healthy Dalvin Cook should be able to run out the clock if they are up in the second half of games and take the ball out of Cousins hands near the end zone. It should also help the overall efficiency of the offense so all in all it increases his floor, but cuts any garbage-time production we’ve seen with Washington. Kyle Rudolph becomes a big benefactor here, Cousins loves his TE, especially near the end-zone.

Case Keenum

Minnesota Vikings

Denver Makes Case


Broncos signed QB Case Keenum, formerly of the Vikings, to a two-year, $36 million contract.

Well, I was hoping for more than a bridge QB for my favorite WR (D. Thomas), but this is a definite upgrade from the three stooges Denver put behind center last year.

LeGarrette Blount

Philadelphia Eagles

Detroit Sparks Up Blount


The Lions signed free agent RB LeGarrette Blount to a 1-year deal worth $4.5M. He’s back with Matt Patricia, as the New England ties are strong.

The Lions have needed a true goal-line/power-back for years. I expect Blount to get between 150-200 touches and all the short-yardage carries. Detroit’s offense doesn’t really fit what Blount brings to the table, but I expect Patricia will have some influence over how the offense will operate from here-on-out.

Cleveland Browns

Money Ball: The Sequel


Hate to start out the offseason with the Cleveland Browns, but they are makin’ moves!
Browns acquired: Tyrod Taylor, Jarvis Landry, Damarious Randall
Browns gave up: 2018 3rd-round pick (No. 65), 2018 4th-round pick, 2019 7th-round pick, DeShone Kizer

Building with experienced quality performers that have something to prove, by selling inconsequential draft picks is exactly what Sashi Brown was building up for. It’s a shame he won’t be around to reap the rewards, but these are quality moves for a win-now mentality.

Tyrod Taylor

Buffalo Bills

Hue Looks To TyGoat


Browns left tackle Joe Thomas, who's pondering his future, is a fan of Tyrod Taylor and has said so on the ThomaHawk Show podcast.

Tyrod is just one season removed (2016) from being the QB11 in average fantasy ppg, including seven 20+ point weeks and six 15+ point weeks. Given the current talent on the O-line and skill position weapons he could improve on those numbers. He has the potential to be this year’s Alex Smith, definitely heading my late-round (12+) QB picks now.

Deshone Kizer

Cleveland Browns

Packers Get In On The Fun


The Packers have traded for QB DeShone Kizer from the Browns to Green Bay.

This is the best possible scenario for Kizer, who was thrown into the fire last season. Getting the chance to develop and learn behind the best in the business is the best chance he has for longevity.

Torrey Smith

Philadelphia Eagles

On The Move Again


The Eagles trade WR Torrey Smith to the Panthers for CB Daryl Worley. Torrey Smith could fill the old Ted Ginn role which makes this fairly interesting. Stagg Party says it’s more of a boost for Cam than Torrey himself.

This is an absolute perfect fit, someone who isn’t going to demand the ball, but can take the top off a defense while McCaffrey, Olsen, and Cam work underneath. Torrey is looking like a great late-round flyer.

DeMarco Murray

Tennessee Titans

Henry Hype Train Has Clear Track


DeMarco Murray was released by the Titans.
No surprise here, expect Derick Henry to be a lead back with 250+ touches, but they will bring in someone that will play the third-down, pass-catching role out of the backfield. I wouldn’t be surprised if they sign someone like Jerick McKinnon or Rex Burkhead, or even Darren Sproles or Charles Sims. There are also plenty of options in the NFL draft, Henry won’t be a true “Bell Cow.”

Marquise Goodwin

San Francisco 49ers

The Name Says It All


Marquise Goodwin and the 49ers have agreed to a 3yr extension worth $20.3M & 10M guaranteed.

Shanahan has found his big-play threat at a reasonable price. Goodwin caught 56 balls for 962 yards last season, but only had two TD’s. None of his six longest plays (33+ yards) were from Garoppollo so it leads me to believe they will still be looking for a top of the line WR, even with Garcon coming back from injury.

WR Player Rankings – Week 15

 

 

QB Rankings  RB Rankings  TE Rankings

 

 

Wide Receivers

 

 

1.               Roddy White (@ Sea) – Roddy has been one of those guys (Kyle Orton and Dwayne Bowe are a couple others) who have killed many an owners playoff hopes the last few weeks, but if you happened to skate by and make it into the post-season, he won’t disappoint you again.  Seattle’s pass D is close to as bad as it gets (30th in the NFL), so have confidence in Roddy serving well as your WR1 this week, just as the Falcons will down the stretch.

 

2.               Andre Johnson (@ Ten) – Andre vs. Cortland, Part II:  The Rematch.  To be honest, I don’t know if the Titans can afford to put Finnegan on him this weekend seeing that before their little Brouhaha a few weeks ago, ‘Dre was consistently making him look like a kindergartner out there.  Finnegan or not, Johnson is going to light it up this weekend.

 

3.               Reggie Wayne (vs Jax) – Wayne had a monster game against Jacksonville the first time around going off for 15 catches and 196 yards.  With Manning realizing his Colts are backed into a corner right now, I’m not sure it’s going to matter what the Jags do to slow him and Wayne down this Sunday.  Their 28th-ranked pass D is simply overmatched.

 

4.               Terrell Owens (vs Cle) – Terrell Me-O Owens went absolutely ballistic in their first showdown to the tune of 10 catches, 222 yards and a 78-yard TD.  Those numbers won’t be repeated this weekend, but then again, hell, they just might!

 

5.               Hakeem Nicks (vs Phi) – Nicks came back looking like he never left last weekend and won’t have a whole hell of a lot around him to compete for targets with this Sunday.  Steve Smith is gone for the year due to knee surgery, Mario Manningham is hobbled by a hip flexor, and Derek Hagan is, well, Derek Hagan.  Expect Nicks to put up nice WR1 numbers this week.

 

6.               Calvin Johnson (@ TB) – Megatron won’t have to deal with the Bucs top cover-corner (Aqib Talib) as he’s out for the season, so there’s hope for Calvin despite the Lions being down to their third-string QB, Drew Stanton.  Stanton isn’t what you’d call an “elite” QB, but he’s not bad, and you can bet your ass he’ll be looking Johnson’s way a ton this game.

 

7.               Marques Colston (@ Bal) – Colston is one of the hottest receivers in the game right now as he’s put up seven TDs and three 100-yard games in his last starts.  Matt Schaub and Andre Johnson showed that a good QB and a big WR can beat the Ravens D, so expect Marques to keep his hot streak alive in Week 15.

 

8.               Vincent Jackson (vs SF) – He’s back, and he looks like he might even be in mid-season form!  Rivers didn’t seem to have a problem making fourth-string WRs look good this year, but believe me, the guy is ecstatic to have his main man back.  Plant VJax in your starting lineup this Sunday against a beatable 49ers secondary and expect some WR1 numbers to come your way.

 

9.               Pierre Garcon (vs Jax) – Manning has been passing the ball a ton lately, and I don’t expect the Colts to all of the sudden turn to the run at this point in the season.  Garcon’s numbers have been steadily increasing since he was called out for his butterfingers problem over a month ago, culminating in a two-TD, 93-yard effort last week against the Titans.  Both Pierre AND Wayne have a chance to put up WR1 numbers this weekend.

 

10.           Miles Austin (vs Was) – With Dez Bryant going down for the year, Austin becomes the sole WR1 on this team and will demand a ton of targets because of it.  He may have been held at bay last week against the Eagles, but Miles showed that the Redskins D isn’t nearly as good as them by putting up 146 yards and a TD on 10 catches during their first game this season.

 

11.           DeSean Jackson (@ NYG) – DeSean had himself quite a game last week against the Cowboys weak-ass defense, but it won’t come as easily this Sunday playing a top-five Giants defense.  He’ll get his chances to shine, and he might come away with another great performance, but it’s hardly a game where you can expect WR1 numbers from The Green Blur.

 

12.           Wes Welker (vs GB) – The Slot Machine just keeps on churning out the big paydays.  Wes continued his hot streak last week against the Bears putting up 115 yards on eight catches in basically the worst weather the NFL season has seen so far this year.  Ride this kid as a solid WR2 play through to the end of the year.

 

13.           Larry Fitzgerald (@ Car) – Whether it’s John Skelton or Skeletor himself, Larry is going to be getting a ton of targets from here on out and should be able to capitalize on them against the Panthers this weekend.  He’s no longer a dependable WR1 for your team (nor has he been all year), but he should be able to put up WR2 stats this fantasy playoff weekend.

 

14.           Dwayne Bowe (@ StL) – The fantasy-team killer struck again last weekend as Bowe was held to just one catch and three yards against the Chargers.  The good thing heading into Week 15 is that he won’t have to face this week what he’s come up against the past two Sundays.  Two weeks ago it was perennial All-Pro Champ Bailey on him, while last week it was the top ranked pass D in the league he had to deal with.  The Rams won’t be able to throw either of them at Bowe.

 

15.           Mike Williams – TB (vs Det) – Super-stud rookie Mike Williams was held to just one catch for 15 yards last week by DeAngelo Hall.  Thank goodness the Lions don’t have anyone even close to that for him to have to worry about.

 

16.           Greg Jennings (@ NE) – It’s looking more and more like it might be Matt Flynn running the show this weekend, and if it is, Jennings barely fits in here as a WR2 option.  However, if Rodgers happens to make it back for the game, shoot Greg up the list and treat him like the WR1 he normally is.

 

17.           Santana Moss (@ Dal) – It’s getting tough for wide receivers NOT to go off against the Cowboys this season, and even though Moss isn’t exactly the steadiest of plays, this weekend may be the best bet he’s had all year to put up some real nice fantasy numbers.

 

18.           Sidney Rice (vs Chi) – Whether it will be Brett Favre, Tarvaris Jackson, Joe Webb, Patrick Ramsey or the Easter Bunny, Rice is looking like the stud he was last year and should get plenty of targets to do something this weekend.  Last year Rice did just fine against the Bears D, and this year they may even depend on him a little more.

 

19.           Kenny Britt (vs Hou) – Britt looked real good in his return to the field last week and was targeted a team-high eight times because of it.  Against the worst pass D in the league this week, he stands to have himself a nice little game for your fantasy team.

 

20.           Brandon Marshall (vs Buf) – Marshall had eight catches in his first game against Buffalo this season, and seeing that Henne finally found him for his second touchdown of the season last weekend, “Baby T.O.” may be looking to go on his yearly end-of-the-season roll right about now.

 

21.           Deion Branch (vs GB) – Branch was supposedly a little gimpy going into last week’s matchup against the Bears, but he looked fine to me hauling in eight catches for 151 yards and a TD while playing in a blizzard.  With a sizzling hot Tom Brady as his QB, it might not matter if Charles Woodson guards him or not this Sunday night.

 

22.           Chad Ochocinco (vs Cle) – Schizocinco led the Bengals in yards once again last week and seems to have rebuilt his rapport with Palmer.  If it continues to grow, Chad might be the one hauling in 10 catches for 222 yards this time around instead of T.O.

 

23.           Jeremy Maclin (@ NYG) – Maclin has had his ups and downs this season, with last week’s one-catch, 11-yard performance being his worst on the year.  However, one of his best games of 2010 came against these same Giants about a month ago when he put up 120 yards on nine catches.  A repeat of those numbers would make fantasy owners very happy.

 

24.           Santonio Holmes (@ Pit) – Holmes let one of the easiest touchdown catches of his career slip through his fingers last weekend, so you can bet he’ll be looking to atone for his bungle, especially against his former team back in the stadium he made his NFL name in.

 

25.           Anquan Boldin (vs NO) – Boldin’s play has been erratic this season, but in a game that could possibly turn into a shootout, you have to like your chances of him putting up some nice fantasy numbers for your team.

 

26.           Brandon Lloyd (@ Oak) – Lloyd wasn’t expected to do anything at all this year, so it sort of feels wrong saying that he’s been one of the guys who killed owners fantasy playoff dreams these past couple of games.  That said, you really can’t blame Lloyd personally as Kyle Orton has been absolutely horrendous, which is partly the reason I have him ranked so low.  The other part is that Nnamdi Asomugha might be guarding him this Sunday.

 

27.           Malcom Floyd (vs SF) – Floyd had a sweet two-TD game last weekend, but he also came out of the game with a slight tweak to his old hamstring injury as well.  He’ll most likely play Thursday night, but he’ll be a risky play being hobbled and Vincent Jackson looking to re-take his WR1 job.

 

28.           Mike Wallace (vs NYJ) – Wallace’s production has been slowed since the initial onslaught that took place when Roethlisberger returned to the lineup earlier this year.  It doesn’t look like it’s going to pick back up this week either with Revis Island in his hip pocket all game long.  You might have to play him, but don’t expect too much.

 

29.           Steve Johnson (@ Mia) – Ever since his embarrassing drop in the endzone to win the game in OT against Pittsburgh three weeks ago, Stevie J has pretty much fallen off the fantasy map.  He’s still a touchdown waiting to happen, but the Dolphins don’t allow too many of those (15, sixth in the NFL) so temper your expectations a bit.

 

30.           Percy Harvin (vs Chi) – If Harvin plays this week, which he should, he could be a nice sleeper against Chicago this weekend.  He’s scored in two of his three career games against the Bears (including in the one earlier this year) and is always a threat to break the long one.

 

31.           Hines Ward (vs NYJ) – Ward has been turning up his game lately as his career might be coming to a close.  I would be hard-pressed to advise playing him against a stingy Jets pass D, but you never know what a wily old veteran will do when faced with the prospect of retirement.

 

32.           Nate Washington (vs Hou) – With Kenny Britt back, Nate will likely be facing off against the Texans second-best corner this Sunday.  If that happens, Washington could be in for a very nice game against this woeful Houston pass D.

 

33.           Ben Obomanu (vs Atl) – If Obomanu returns (which Coach Carroll says he is), he could end up as a very nice sleeper against a Falcons pass D that happens to be their Achilles Heel.  Make sure you check the news this week before making any moves. 

 

34.           Johnny Knox (@ Min) – Knox is one of the biggest burners in the league and shouldn’t have a problem getting behind the Vikings defenders at least a couple of times this weekend.  If the Bears open up the playbook a bit, Knox could have a decent game.  If not, you’ll want to look elsewhere for your fantasy production.

 

35.           Austin Collie (vs Jax) – Collie went through a full practice on Wednesday, which bodes well for his return this Sunday against the Jags.  He might be eased back into things a bit as the Colts will definitely want to take caution with his concussion issues, but he could be another nice sleeper for fantasy owners this weekend.

 

36.           Derrick Mason (vs NO) – Mason had himself another awesome game last week grabbing two TDs in an overtime win against the Texans on Monday night.  New Orleans isn’t likely to give up the same, though, as they are first in the league in allowing just eight passing TDs on the year.

 

37.           Brandon Gibson (vs KC) – Bradford has gone through a bit of a rookie dry spell the last couple of weeks, but he’s too good to be held down for long.  Gibson has been his main man lately leading the team in both catches and targets the last two games, so if Sam the Ram does happen to break out of his mini-slump, Gibson could be in for a nice little game.

 

38.           Derek Hagan (vs Phi) – Hagan is clearly nothing special, but with Steve Smith out for the year and Manningham hobbled, he could be the beneficiary of the Eagles sliding their D towards Nicks this game.  However, don’t play him unless you absolutely have to.

 

39.           Arrelious Benn (vs Det) – The big rookie out of Illinois is starting to turn some heads down in Tampa.  He was a well-known rookie coming into the season, but has been completely overshadowed by the play of fellow rookie Mike Williams for the greater part of the season.  Last game he came up with four catches for 122 yards and was one yard short of adding a TD to that line.  With Tampa playing Detroit this weekend, Benn deserves a look.

 

40.           Lance Moore (@ Bal) – Baltimore can be beaten through the air, and that’s exactly what the Saints will be doing in this game.  Besides Brees and Colston of course, Moore is the most consistent player on the team and should be used as a nice flex this week with a lot of upside potential.

 

41.           Roy E. Williams (vs Was) – It’s tough for me to put this guy in my rankings, but with Dez Bryant and Kevin Ogletree both out for the year, Williams will be counted on to step up his game.  Against the Redskins pass D, even Roy E. can surprise with a nice fantasy showing.

 

42.           Louis Murphy (vs Den) – Murphy is hardly a guy you want to depend on in your fantasy playoffs, but if you’re stuck between him and another middling receiver, you might want to take a chance on him as the Raiders take on a Broncos defense that gives up the most points per game in the league (28.9).

 

43.           Earl Bennett (@ Min) – Bennett is really no more than a desperation play, but he does have the best rapport with Cutler at this point.  If you need to use him, don’t throw him in there as anything more than a flex this week.

 

44.           Donald Driver (@ NE) – If Rodgers comes back to play this week, you can move Driver up about 10 slots or so in these rankings.  If not, then keep him here and don’t expect much more than a few catches for maybe 40 yards or so.

 

45.           Braylon Edwards (@ Pit) – It’s more than obvious how much Braylon hates playing in the cold weather as his normally butterfinger hands end up becoming big slabs of brown and orange ice.  Don’t expect much more than flex numbers out of Edwards this week.

 

46.           Michael Crabtree (@ SD) – San Diego has the best pass D in the league and regularly hold the opposing team’s top receiver to less than desirable numbers.  If you have someone you can plug in for Crabtree this week, do it.

 

47.           Jacoby Ford (vs Den) – He’s not a consistent play yet, but you could be trapping lightning in a bottle this weekend as the Raiders play possibly the worst defense in the league on Sunday.  Whether you start him or not, the kid is a crapload of fun to watch.

 

48.           Robert Meachem (@ Bal) – Meachem is about as frustrating of a fantasy player there is in the NFL.  One week he’s exploding for either two TDs or 100 yards and a TD… the next, he’s throwing up a goose-egg.  Start him at your own discretion and only if you’re the betting type.
