LIKE/DISLIKE: Week 17

QB_Blake_Bortles_JAC_2

Minus Sunday’s game against San Francisco, Jacksonville has the league’s best defense, meaning Blake Bortles should have many possessions. Plus, Tennessee has the fifth-best rushing defense (89.1 yards, 3.6 average), so Bortles will probably be relied on to lead the offense, if he plays.

LIKE/DISLIKE: Week 16

RB_C.J._Anderson_DEN_1

Anderson is a must-start RB2 or flex. He rushed for 130 yards on 30 carries in Week 15 against Indianapolis and hasn’t had less than 15 touches in four weeks. Denver’s committed to running the ball and Osweiler, as described above, is a mostly terrible quarterback.

WR_Philip_Rivers_SDC_1

Coming into this season, I thought the Chargers would be a run-first team with new head coach Anthony Lynn. Instead, Rivers has thrown at least one touchdown pass in every game except for Week 3.

QB_Matthew_Stafford_DET_1

What a time to be alive as the fantasy football playoffs start for most leagues. Everybody knows what’s at stake, so let’s get down to it. Week 14 provides great under the radar starts and alleged no-brainer choices to steer ...

LIKE/DISLIKE: Week 13

QB_Tyrod_Taylor_BUF_1

New England’s offense scores 29.5 points per game, and Buffalo’s defense allows 23.6 points. This game has all the makings of Tom Brady and company scoring early and often as Taylor plays from behind.

LIKE/DISLIKE: Week 12

RB_DeMarco_Murray_TEN_1

This is a down year for the 29-year-old veteran, but don’t count DeMarco Murray out against the Colts. Indianapolis has a respectable rushing defense at 111.3 yards per game and 10 touchdowns. Murray is averaging 3.8 yards per carry and has scored four touchdowns on the ground and one receiving.

QB_Matt_Ryan_ATL_2

A starter since early 2011, cornerback Richard Sherman is out for the season with a ruptured Achilles tendon, meaning the Seahawks in all likelihood will have trouble guarding wide receiver Julio Jones on Monday night.

LIKE/DISLIKE: Week 10

Quarterback Ben Roethlisberger Pittsburgh Steelers

All signs point to wide receivers Antonio Brown and JuJu Smith-Schuster torching the Colts, as well as Le’Veon Bell out of the backfield. After throwing five interceptions against Jacksonville in Week 5, the Steelers have won three games in a row..

LIKE/DISLIKE: Week 9

QB_Jared_Goff_LAR_1

The second-year signal-caller is a great streaming option who, coming off a bye, scored the 12th-most fantasy points among quarterbacks headed into Week 8.. the Giants are probably going to lose badly as Goff lights up the scoreboard and stat sheet.

LIKE/DISLIKE: Week 8

QB_Matt_Ryan_ATL_1

Matt Ryan, the 2016 Offensive Player of the Year has been closer to a fantasy owner’s 2017 Least Valuable Player. Offensive coordinator Steve Sarkisian hasn’t recaptured the high-powered machine Kyle Shanahan led the past two years.

WR_Dez_Bryant_DAL_1

This once simple decision is no longer a no-brainier. Bryant is a big-name player who isn’t producing up to his superstar status. But if there was ever an opportunity to regain what he once was, the winless 49ers are a good landing spot.

WR_Philip_Rivers_SDC_1

Who wears a bolo tie to postgame press conferences, has seven kids and trash talks with a Southern twang without cursing? The same guy who’s about to pick apart Oakland’s No. 15 passing defense.

LIKE/DISLIKE: Week 5

QB_Jameis_Winston_TBB_1

Under normal circumstances, supporting a quarterback who threw three interceptions in a game two weeks ago would not seem wise. Fortunately for Winston owners, he gets the league's last-ranked defense in the New England Patriots on Thursday night.

QB_Blake_Bortles_JAC_1

Predicting player performances is possible to an extent. I’ve been right about several evaluations and wrong on others. The same results will likely happen in Week 4. Considering the following advice may be a good start – and when someone ...

LIKE/DISLIKE: Week 3

RB_Isaiah_Crowell_CLE_1

Twenty years ago, Detroit Lions back Barry Sanders had 53 yards through two games before gaining 100 yards or more in 14 straight games to finish the season with 2,053 yards. Crowell’s talent isn’t comparable to one of the greatest players of all time, but a slow start doesn’t mean his production is doomed.

LIKE/DISLIKE: Week 2

WR Jarvis Landry MIA

Having Week 1 off due to a catastrophic hurricane will help the chemistry between Landry and quarterback Jay Cutler. That extra practice gives them time to exploit a Chargers passing defense that was 12th-worst last season at 263.6 yards and 1.3 touchdowns per game.

NFC ROUNDUP: Good, Bad & Indifferent

RB_Devonta_Freeman_ATL_1

There comes a point in everyone’s life when they should admit they were wrong. Fantasy football is no different. If you are like me, it’s time to stop doubting Devonta Freeman. In his three-year career, the Florida State standout has proven to be legit, posting RB1 stats as an elite dual-threat starter.

DRAFT DAY TIPS: Five Thoughts

Fantasy owners have a lot on their minds this time of year. Too many people get enamored with a rookie’s potential. Too many people use a high draft pick or spend a lot of their cap space on a quarterback. ...

Wait on drafting a signal caller. Top 10 drop-offs are more drastic at every other position. Value can be found everywhere, and when it comes to a roster spot that scores the most points, build a solid foundation of skill ...

PLAYERS TO AVOID: Running Backs

RB Adrian Peterson Saints

Statistics prove that players who score the most points are often on high-scoring offenses. After a down 2015, running backs made a comeback last season, and whether it’s a standard or points per reception (PPR) league, those in the backfield ...
