FANTASY IMPACT: Week 12

RB Kenyan Drake ARI & Landon Collins WAS

Kenyan Drake is working his way into starting territory again. Week 11 against Seattle was the first time he had more than 2 catches or even double-digit receiving yards this year. His usage and production are looking up.

FANTASY IMPACT: Week 10

WR Brandon Aiyuk SF

Brandon Aiyuk has seen fairly consistent usage this year overall. The last two weeks he has had 115 and 91 yards receiving on seven and 10 targets, respectively, ranked 10th in fantasy points over those two weeks at the position.

FANTASY IMPACT: Week 9

RB Leonard Fournette & QB Tom Brady, Tampa Bay

In terms of snap count percentage, there are a few notable changes. The biggest surprise is that Leonard Fournette had a snap percentage of 73 percent compared to Ronald Jones’ 24 percent. It was a 56 percent-43 percent last week so Fournette is clearly taking over the leading running back role.

FANTASY IMPACT: Week 8

QB Daniel Jones NYG

Daniel Jones is the perfect end-of-season quarterback with matchups against Cincinnati, Seattle, Arizona and Cleveland. Last year from Weeks 8-16 he was No. 5 in points per game in quarterbacks who played at least three games.

FANTASY IMPACT: Week 7

WR Christian Kirk ARI & CB Casey Hayward LAC

Christian Kirk has completed his coming out party. While Kyler Murray completed only nine passes, two went to Kirk who had 86 yards and two touchdowns. Kirk had an 81% snap percentage in Week 6 - 20% higher than most other weeks this year.

FANTASY IMPACT: Week 6

TE Gerald Everett LA Rams

Tyler Higbee (TE 9) is the biggest sell candidate of any player now. He is clearly losing his job to Gerald Everett. Higbee was a star out of necessity last year with injuries to Everett and Cooper Kupp.

FANTASY IMPACT: Week 5

RB Joe Mixon CIN

Joe Mixon is the player with the most unknowns moving forward but this is also the best opportunity to sell high. He plays Baltimore and Indianapolis the next two weeks which will drag down his value.

FANTASY IMPACT: Week 4

LB Darius Leonard tackles RB Joe Mixon

Mixon is worrisome as he is averaging 3.2 yards per carry against questionable defenses. He only has faced a stacked box on 7.7 percent of his carries. If you can sell him at 3rd round player value, go for it.

FANTASY IMPACT: Week 3

RB David Johnson and QB Deshaun Watson Houston Texans

David Johnson disappointed many this week and he will again in his Week 3 based on his difficult matchup with Pittsburgh. He did however, lead all running backs this week with a 95% snap percentage.

FANTASY IMPACT: Week 1

WR John Brown BUF

Stefon Diggs and John Brown led the league in receiving snaps for the week (56, 54) though it was against maybe the worst pass defense in the league, Brown is one of the biggest buy low candidates this week.

GAME PREVIEWS: Week 16

TE_Zach_Ertz_PHI_1

Zach Ertz is a must-start this week. If your team has been plagued by injuries and you lack significant depth, Dallas Goedert would not be a terrible flex option to get you around 7-8 points.

REAR-VIEW: Week 13 Recap

QB_Tom_Brady_NEP_3

Tom Brady may have only completed half of his passes but he had a good passing day for fantasy (25.3 fantasy points). Brady has been at the top of the league in passing attempts over the last few weeks.

REAR-VIEW: Week 11 Recap

QB Mason Rudolph PIT

Mason Rudolph is starting to show his limitations as a passer against a Browns team that is finally healthy in the secondary. Rudolph threw for 4 interceptions and just one touchdown on an infamous night that he was hit with a helmet.

REAR-VIEW: Week 10 Recap

QB_Matt_Ryan_ATL_1

This whole game was backwards and we can wonder how much we can take away from the game. What is important is that even in a negative game script for passing, Matt Ryan threw 35 times for just 185 yards and two touchdowns.

REAR-VIEW: Week 10

WR Jamison Crowder NYJ & Jordan Poyer BUF

Jamison Crowder is the only important receiver on the Jets with Demaryius Thomas falling off. Crowder had 8 catches on 9 targets for 83 yards last week. He is clearly the favorite target of Sam Darnold.

REAR-VIEW: Week 9

WR_Mike_Evans_TBB_1

It was a wild week last week with massive scoring for several players. Daniel Jones led the quarterbacks in scoring, Aaron Jones had more points than any player, and Mike Evans is officially back.

TAKEAWAYS: Part 2

QB Sam Darnold NYJ

There is not much to say for the Jets’ passing situation as everything should reset once Sam Darnold is back this week. For those playing DFS this week, the Jets defense is criminally cheap and allows thousands of dollars in savings compared to others.

TAKEAWAYS: Part 1

RB_Todd_Gurley_STL_2

The Rams of old are slowly making an appearance again with Todd Gurley increasing his snaps each game and the Rams supporting multiple pass catchers. It is good news for Gurley that he saw 15 of the team’s 18 carries and Malcolm Brown is no longer a factor.

OFFENSE: Takeaways – Week 2

RB Marlon Mack IND

Marlon Mack is leading the NFL in rushing attempts so far with 45.. Dalvin Cook is the next best with 41 attempts for 265 yards. Le’Veon Bell, Sony Michel and Ezekiel Elliott round out the Top-5 for rushing attempts with 36 each.

TEAM DEFENSE: Takeaways after Week 2

LB Kyle Van Noy NEP

The landscape for defensive rankings so far have proven to be a far cry from last year. Eventually, the expected teams such as Jacksonville and Philadelphia will progress towards their normal means instead of being below average as they have ...

BEST-BALL: Two Perfect Player Stacks

QB_Drew_Brees_NOS_1

With the recent emergence of best-ball popularity among fantasy professionals and more casual players, everyone needs differentiation between players good for regular leagues and those who will win best-ball leagues. With best-ball leagues starting on Yahoo! for the first time ...

RISK ASSESSMENT: Upside Players With Downside

RB Chris Carson SEA

Having a monopoly over the Seattle backfield is equal to a first round running back this year... Rashaad Penny has a real chance to take volume from Chris Carson (and maybe even the starting role eventually) but the current ADP of both players allows massive upside especially when drafted together.
