RB_Todd_Gurley_STL_2

One of the most difficult tasks in head-to-head fantasy leagues is trying to determine who the “hot” and “cold” players will be in any given week. You can’t use historical or seasonal averages because, well … by their very definition, ...

IDP: THE 2019 FANTASY SHARKS ALL-VALUE ALL-STARS

DL_Trey_Flowers_NEP_1

Trey Flowers is also an excellent edge-setter, as evidenced by his 119 total tackles over the last two seasons. Flowers has finished inside the Top 20 defensive linemen each of the past two seasons. If he can goose that sack total a bit a move just inside the Top 10 is by no means out of the question.

2019 IDP DRAFT PREVIEW: Amani Hooker – S, Iowa

CB Amani Hooker Iowa

From a fantasy perspective, the fact that Hooker's not an ideal fit as a deep safety or slot corner in sub-packages isn't so much a bad thing. There are players (like Mathieu) who have shown the ability to be fantasy-relevant despite spending the majority of the time away from the line of scrimmage.

2019 IDP DRAFT PREVIEW: Nasir Adderley, S, Delaware

DB Nassir Addeley Delaware

From an Individual Defensive Player (IDP) perspective, Nasir Adderley’s a hard prospect to peg.. As we saw with Mathieu, Jackson and even Bates in 2018 (all of whom finished as Top 15 fantasy defensive backs in Fantasy Sharks Default IDP Scoring in 2018), deep safeties and “hybrid” types can make plenty of IDP hay.

The NFL’s second season is almost here. For the 12 teams about to embark on the journey to Atlanta and Super Bowl LIII, the arrival of the playoffs are just swell. For the 20 teams that didn’t make the postseason though, it kinda sucks. Just ask Pittsburgh.

THE LOWDOWN: Week 16

QB Andrew Luck IND

I'm liking Andrew Luck this week in a must-win situation against the Giants... Jared Goff needs to regain some of his swagger, and quick; the Arizona defense may allow him that opportunity.

While Dalvin Cook hasn't been running the ball all that well since his return from injury, he's been a decent RB2/Flex play over the last three games. The Vikings' RB has average 88 scrimmage yards, five catches and 0.67 TDs per game in that span, good for an average 18.2 PPG...
