THE DIVE: Week 10 “The Homestretch”

CB Eli Apple New Orleans Saints

The Saints should be able to encore last week’s impressive display against a weak San Francisco 49ers' offense who will be starting Nick Mullens at quarterback and without many of their potent offensive weapons. San Francisco struggled against Green Bay in Week 9, and are likely to struggle against New Orleans too.

THE DIVE: Week 8 – “Thriller”

RB Boston Scott PHI

Although Boston Scott’s game in Week 7 was poised for disappointment, he heated up on Philadelphia’s final drive and scored the game-winning touchdown. Scott should thrive again when Philadelphia visits the downtrodden Dallas defense, who has allowed the ninth-most fantasy points to opposing running backs.

THE DIVE: Week 4 “Buffalo Wild Wins!”

WR Allen Lazard GB & Marshon Lattimore NO

Thankfully, Week 3 saw less injuries, yet still gave us many monster performances from players including Patrick Mahomes, Josh Allen, Russell Wilson, Aaron Rodgers, Alvin Kamara, Tyler Lockett, Dak Prescott, James Robinson, Jared Goff and Austin Ekeler. New England running back ...

THE DIVE: Week 2 – “Sand Off the Rust”

RB Adrian Peterson, Detroit

Detroit’s backfield will have a shared workload, but Adrian Peterson appears to head this committee for now. He has an attractive matchup against Green Bay, who he is very familiar with - and who just allowed 128 total yards and two scores to Minnesota’s running backs.

THE DIVE: Week 1 “WTF 2020?”

RB Sony Michel NEP

With Lamar Miller released, Damien Harris on injured reserve, Michel along with veterans Rex Burkhead and James White will split the workload. Look for Michel to receive at least 15-20 carries, but most of the goal-line work which can prove valuable for owners.

THE DIVE: Week 12 “Expect the Unexpected”

QB Jeff Driskel DET

Can you really consider starting a Detroit Lions’ backup quarterback in Week 12? Maybe. With the inconsistent fantasy performances of Aaron Rodgers, Tom Brady, Drew Brees, and Deshaun Watson, it would not hurt to at least consider. Consider Jeff Driskel if your quarterback is on a bye week or faces a difficult matchup.

THE DIVE: Week 7 “Remember Who You Are”

Tight End Hunter Henry San Diego Chargers

Welcome back Hunter Henry! The Los Angeles Chargers tight end was one of the lone bright spots in a home loss against Pittsburgh. The Chargers offense should rebound in Week 6 when it visits Tennessee, who surrenders the seventh-most fantasy points to opposing tight ends.

THE DIVE: Week 6 “Boom or Bust”

RB Matt Breida SF

Although Tevin Coleman returned and carried the ball 16 times, Matt Breida was a major focal point of the offense with 11 carries for 114 yards, three catches for 15 yards, and scored twice. Expect more Breida in Week 6 when San Francisco visits the Los Angeles Rams.

THE DIVE: Week 5 “I Will Survive”

QB_Jameis_Winston_TBB_1

Sure, you can argue that he’s shown inconsistency especially last season, but his last two weeks are impossible to ignore. If Jameis Winston is your backup quarterback or sitting on the waiver wire, he needs to be owned and started.

THE DIVE: Hit the Ground Running – Week 1

RB Phillip Lindsay DEN

With veteran quarterback Joe Flacco now running the offense, there should be more opportunity for second-year running back Phillip Lindsay. Although Denver’s offense never reached full steam last season, Lindsay was a rare bright spot with more than 1,000 rushing yards and nine touchdowns in 15 games.

THE DIVE: Week 17 “Better Late Than Never”

WR_Julian_Edelman_NEP_1

With New England running more of a ground game as opposed to an aerial assault in 2018, most New England receivers and star tight end Rob Gronkowski have disappointed their fantasy owners much of the season. However, the absence of Josh Gordon has helped veteran wideout Julian Edelman finish the season hot with an average of 11 targets per game.

THE DIVE: Week 15 “Expect the Unexpected!”

CB Desmond Trufant ATL and WR Robert Woods LAR

Robert Woods has been targeted at least five times and gained at least 70 receiving yards in every game except Week 1. The Rams should return to offensive domination when they welcome Philadelphia, who have surrendered the second-most fantasy points to wide receivers, and was just recently torched by Amari Cooper.

THE DIVE: Week 12 “Monday Night Mayhem”

RB_Mark_Ingram_NOS_1

It can be difficult trusting a talented running back who is clearly splitting his workload, even on the prolific offense of the New Orleans Saints. Although Alvin Kamara may produce more points in your fantasy football league especially in PPR format, veteran back Mark Ingram has been extremely effective .

THE DIVE: Week 11 “Leading The Pack”

WR Alshon Jeffery PHI & CB James Bradberry CAR

Even with the amount of wideouts in Philadelphia, Jeffery should break out of his brief slump when he visits the New Orleans secondary, who has surrendered the most fantasy points (including most receiving yards and touchdowns) to wide receivers.

THE DIVE: Week 8 “Ram Tough”

Safety Maurice Alexander LA Rams

As we look ahead at Week 8, let’s rewind through several few Week 7 highlights.  Can the Los Angeles Rams be stopped…or even slowed down?  They won their 7th straight and continue as the NFL’s only undefeated team as they ...

THE DIVE: Week 7 “Off the Radar”

RB Frank Gore MIA

Some believe that 16th century Spanish explorer Ponce de León found the "Fountain of Youth" in Florida, Miami Dolphins’ veteran running back Frank Gore has rediscovered it in 2018! At 35 years old, he is the oldest running back in the NFL, yet just became the first to rush for 100-yards against the Chicago Bears’ defense.
