I suffer from an undying obsession with fantasy football. Former Lee Evans owner, I am not proud. Admitting you have a problem is the first step, I would get to the second one but I have lineups to set. Follow me on Twitter @leedoglaw

GRINDERS & GAMBLES: Week 13

QB_Jameis_Winston_TBB_1

Winston’s next two games should require him to throw a ton. If he can keep it away from the other team’s corners he should give fantasy GMs a decent floor, even if it is garbage time production.

GRINDERS & GAMBLES: Week 12

QB_Eli_Manning_NYG_1

Manning is one of the most notoriously inconsistent quarterbacks in the NFL and there is always a risk of the dreaded “Manning face”, but he has been a relatively consistent grinder for the last few weeks and he should put up a decent stat line against Philly this week.

GRINDERS & GAMBLES: Week 10

QB_Dak_Prescott_DAL_1

Dak Prescott’s fantasy stock has dropped significantly as he puts up low-end grinder numbers week after week. He plays a Philadelphia defense that has been hit-or-miss but he should have a decent floor this week.

GRINDERS & GAMBLES: Week 9

WR_Adam_Humphries_TBB_1

Adam Humphries is still grinding. He is a nice grab if you need a steady receiver in deeper leagues. Keep in mind this team could be rotating quarterbacks as both have a tendency to make really nice throws...to the other team’s safeties.

GRINDERS & GAMBLES: Week 8

QB_Dak_Prescott_DAL_3

He is surprisingly available in many leagues due to his inconsistent and lackluster start. Prescott has been solid over the last few weeks and should continue to put up points for both the Cowboys and fantasy GMs. The Amari Cooper signing should help him immensely.

GRINDERS & GAMBLES: Week 7

QB_Brock_Osweiter_HOU_1

As we have firmly established, the Dolphins exist to crush my hopes and dreams. The Brock Osweiler we saw during an amazing game Sunday was the same Brock that Houston saw. That didn’t turn out well for Houston. Don’t be Houston.

GRINDERS & GAMBLES: Week 6

WR_Robby_Anderson_NYJ_1

Robby Anderson has been quiet this season but he finally made some noise this week. He has a young quarterback and will probably be a match up play but he might be able to help with the bye week blues. He has only been averaging about five targets a game so don’t spend capital on him.

GRINDERS & GAMBLES: Week 5

TE_Cameron_Brate_TBB_1

Grinders and Gambles is duct tape for teams in need of help. This list is for deeper leagues or for those in shallower leagues who are picking up players in free agency after waivers have run.

Read More »

GRINDERS & GAMBLES: Week 4

QB_Ryan_Tannehill_MIA_1

As we all know, the Dolphins exist to crush my hopes and dreams. They are 3 – 0 and leading the division and I am sure we all saw that coming. I expect a mid-season meltdown soon as they’re still the Dolphins; I am enjoying the wins while I can but I also live in reality.

GRINDERS & GAMBLES: Week 3

GRINDERS & GAMBLES: Week 2

TE Ricky Seals-Jones ARI

There is nothing like the glorious start of football season! The excitement, the hope, the hate for your rivals. Once again we enter into another fantasy football season as the landscape is being set. You may be basking in your ...

DRAFT HELP: Late Round Fliers

RB_Gio_Bernard_CIN_1

Gio Bernard is great for PPR leagues as a bye week fill in or a desperation flex. Mixon is the guy but Bernard should be able to put in enough work to be worth a roster spot and he is being drafted around the same place that kicker Justin Tucker is.

BARGAIN HUNTING: Rounds 7-10

RB_Chris_Thompson_WAS_1

Chris Thompson was clutch for both Washington and fantasy owners last year before his injury. He even has my personal favorite and eternal late round quarterback love, Captain Check-down himself, Alex Smith throwing to him. Thompson will be aided by having a team of often banged up team of pass catchers around him.

GRINDERS AND GAMBLES: Week 16

QB_Joe_Flacco_BAL_1

Flacco is the quarterback I feel most comfortable starting out of the bunch because I expect a grinder floor. He put up solid numbers against the Browns and gets Indy this week. You could do worse if you are in a pinch.

Read More »

GRINDERS AND GAMBLES: Week 15

WR_Brandon_LaFell_CIN_1

LaFell has been a low end PPR grinder all year on a Bengals team that has been almost uniformly disappointing fantasy owners. Guess what Bengals receiver is not lining up against Xavier Rhodes this week?

GRINDERS & GAMBLES: Week 14

LB_Ryan_Shazier_RB_Gio_Bernard_NFL_1

“Grinders and Gambles” is duct tape for teams in need of help. This list is for deeper leagues or for those in shallower leagues who are picking up players in free agency after waivers have run. Grinders are the guys who ...

GRINDERS & GAMBLES: Week 13

TE Ricky Seals-Jones ARI

Chemistry matters. Ricky Seals-Jones is Blaine Gabbert’s wubby right now and that matters. If this continues, Seals-Jones could be a huge difference maker on your roster as well as the Cardinals roster. Gamble.

GRINDERS & GAMBLES: Week 12

QB_Tyrod_Taylor_BUF_2

I have no idea why the Bills thought…”hey we are in playoff contention, let’s bench our quarterback and start a rookie!” but the rest of the AFC East and the Chargers are grateful.

Read More »

GRINDERS AND GAMBLES: Week 11

WR_Brandon_LaFell_CIN_1

LaFell is going to give low end PPR grinder numbers week-to-week on a Bengals team that has seen its share of issues this year. Green is the undisputed top target here by a mile. With that said, LaFell may work in a pinch or if you just need to put a few points on the board.

GRINDERS AND GAMBLES: Week 9

TE_Charles_Clay_BUF_2

Charles Clay is more likely to be on your wire than Olsen. Unfortunately his timetable is unknown. He is still on the mend and Kelvin Benjamin is now in town. Clay is worth a stash and gamble if you have room since he has a good schedule for the final stretch

GRINDERS AND GAMBLES: Week 8

WR Kenny Stills MIA

Kenny Stills has been getting more targets in the last few weeks and had a nice game against the Jets. What lesson have we learned from reading this article? The Dolphins exist to crush my hopes and dreams.

GRINDERS AND GAMBLES: Week 7

QB Mitchell Trubisky CHI

Grinders and Gambles is duct tape for deeper leagues where the vultures have already thinned your wire down to the last pickings. Either your league deep or your waivers have run and you still have holes. Grinders are the guys ...

GRINDERS AND GAMBLES: Week 6

RB_Shane_Vereen_NYG_1

Grinders and Gambles is waiver wire duct tape for deeper leagues where the waiver wires are thinner. Grinders are the guys that will get you some points. They may not have an upside but they will grind out 5-15 depending on your scoring. Gambles can get you a goose egg but also have tremendous upside.

Read More »

GRINDERS & GAMBLES: Week 5

QB_Jared_Goff_LAR_1

Jared Goff’s floor is a grinder right now and his upside is a Top 10 quarterback. He has some nasty match ups so he isn’t going to help as much with the bye week blues but he will make a great match up play.

GRINDERS AND GAMBLES: Week 4

QB Jay Cutler MIA

That’s the Cutler we all know and love. As we all know, Miami exists to crush my hopes and dreams. We lost to the New York Jets …TO THE JETS! Sorry, where was I? Right, Cutler was Cutlering all over the place but he has New Orleans coming up. Every meme about the New Orleans defense is just a picture of a turnstile.

GRINDERS AND GAMBLES: Week 3

QB_Trevor_Siemian_DEN_1

I am back!! I have power, I have cable, I watched football this Sunday (which is significantly better than week 1 which involved me doing a jigsaw puzzle by storm lamp light eating canned tuna). Grinders and Gambles is waiver ...

LATE ROUND: Fliers

WR_Chris_Hogan_NEP_1

It is time, my friends! Print out those cheat sheets, depth charts and draft guides, it is the peak of fantasy draft season! Maybe you have meticulously planned your draft, ran some mocks and have a strategy? Maybe you are ...

LATER ROUND FLIERS: Running Back

RB_Theo_Riddick_DET_1

If you are in a PPR league you should be looking to target Riddick. Riddick's value seems to be leaving him available in rounds 8-10 in drafts so far. The guy just quietly grinds points for his owners every year (mostly coming from passing yards).

LATE ROUND FILLERS: Quarterback

QB_Matthew_Stafford_DET_1

Matthew Stafford was a Top 10 quarterback last season and has been flying under the radar in drafts. You can grab him in rounds 10-12. He is experienced, has a nice schedule and has veteran receivers and is my favorite grab at his current price.

GRINDERS and GAMBLES: Week 17

RB_Zach_Zenner_DET_1

“Grinders and Gambles” is waiver wire duct tape for teams needing to go a little deeper on wires. Grinders are the guys who will get you some points. They may not have an upside but they will grind out 5-15 ...
