TRAPS & TRENDS: Week 6

TE Rob Gronkowski & QB Tom Brady Tampa Bay

Did Rob Gronkowski re-emerge as a legit fantasy option during an NFL weekend that featured 14 tight end touchdowns? FantasySharks.com senior writer Matt Wilson answers that question and kicks the tires on the fantasy prospects of four other tight ends ...

TRAPS & TRENDS: Week 5

WR_A_J_Green_CIN_1

With his skills declining at age 32, I suspect that A.J. Green knows the team is phasing him out of the offense. I also suspect he’ll have the world’s slowest healing hamstring. Dump Green and get another player with some value before it’s too late.

TRAPS & TRENDS: Week 4

LB Darius Leonard tackles RB Joe Mixon

Mixon is the first Cincinnati player to rack up two rushing touchdowns and a receiving touchdown in a game since Corey Dillon did it during the 2001 season. Heading into Week 4 action, Mixon topped a lot of fantasy analysts’ sell or must-trade lists. Following his massive outing, should fantasy managers opt to hold onto this guy?

TRAPS & TRENDS: Week 3

RB Rex Burkhead NE

What’s the best way to sum up the Week 3 action? Try this: Fewer injuries, but more questions. Is there clarity in the New England Patriots backfield? Is the New York Giants backfield a lost cause? Are there two on-the-rise ...

TRAPS & TRENDS: Week 3

RB James Conner PIT

It’s Conner’s backfield, but I’m a bit skeptical about whether Conner will hold onto the No. 1 gig. During the Denver game, Conner’s final stats received a nice boost from a 59-yard jaunt during the closing minutes in which the Broncos were stacking the line and trying to force a turnover.

TRAPS & TRENDS: Week 2

QB_Aaron_Rodgers_GBP_1

Did the studs on your fantasy teams decide to take Week 1 off? If that’s the case, you’re probably dealing with a nasty case of the “Week 1 Freakouts.” If you’re in a guillotine league, you’re probably feeling extra nervous ...

TRAPS & TRENDS: Week 15

QB Mitchell Trubisky CHI

Throwing with more accuracy, flashing his mobility and playing with far more confidence and a stronger command of the offense, Trubisky has resembled the playmaker that the Bears thought they were getting three seasons ago.

TRAPS & TRENDS: Week 14

RB_Peyton_Barber_TBB_1

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers’ usage of their tight ends has been super frustrating this season, and now the Bucs are tinkering with their backfield just in time for the fantasy playoffs.

RB_Derrick_Henry_TEN_1

Heading into Week 13 action, Derrick Henry has either rushed for at least 100 yards or found the end zone at least once in 11 of 13 contests played while averaging 20 touches and 106.7 combo yards per contest.

TRAPS & TRENDS: Week 13

WR Amari Cooper DAL & CB Josh Norman WAS

Things don’t look good for Amari Cooper. His schedule is challenging, and don’t forget that Cooper isn’t 100 percent. He has been playing through a nagging knee injury during a good chunk of the season.

TRAPS & TRENDS: Week 12

RB Nick Chubb CLE

The numbers tell the story: Kareem Hunt has emerged as a third-down back in a backfield that resembles the Melvin Gordon/Austin Ekeler duo in its prime last season. Will Cleveland continue to operate a committee backfield for the rest of 2019?

TRAPS & TRENDS: Week 11

RB Damien Williams KC

This past Sunday, fantasy mangers woke up to find out that LeSean McCoy, who had struggled in Week 8 and Week 9, was a healthy scratch, leaving Williams as the Chiefs’ main ball carrier against the Tennessee Titans. Is Damien Williams the guy in the Kansas City backfield for the rest of the regular season?

TRAPS & TRENDS: Week 10

RB Devin Singletary BUF

For this first time this season, Devin Singletary out-touched Frank Gore in a contest... The Bills would be idiots not to give one of their most explosive playmakers a sizable fantasy friendly role going forward.
