THE LOWDOWN: Week 15

TE Noah Fant DEN

Last week I took a huge gamble and stacked Drew Lock and Noah Fant in one of my leagues-- and it paid off nicely. Lock has come out of the gate strong, and certainly gives hope to Broncos' fans heading into 2020...

IDP STUDS AND DUDS: Week 15 IDP Start/Sit

LB K.J. Wright SEA & RB Ezekiel Elliott DAL

K.J. Wright is right back in the same spot he's held for much of his professional career—a high-end fantasy LB3 with LB2 upside. The 30-year-old should lean toward the latter Sunday against the Panthers, who lead the league in fantasy points surrendered to linebackers.

IDP WAIVER WIRE: Week 15

RB Nyheim Hines IND

For the second straight game, Donald Payne hit double-digits in tackles, piling up 16 total stops. Getting that kind of production off the waiver wire this late in the season can be both a bacon-saver and a game-changer.

THE LOWDOWN: Week 14

QB Kirk Cousins MIN

I know everyone is aware of this, but I think it's amazing how much Kirk Cousins turned his season around since being called out by WR Adam Thielen in Week 4. Since being run down by his wideout, Cousins has tossed 20 TDs to just two interceptions. That's amazing...

IDP WAIVER WIRE: Week 14

LB Sean Lee DAL

Sean Lee has been a lot more than just a cheerleader or a fill-in over the past few weeks — he had 12 tackles (nine solo) in last week’s loss to Buffalo and already has almost twice as many tackles as all of last year.

THE LOWDOWN: Week 13

QB Lamar Jackson BAL

I have seen the future of professional football, and it’s Lamar Jackson. Is this really all that of an outrageous statement? After watching Jackson over the past few weeks, it’s obvious that he’ll be the model quarterback for future generations.

IDP STUDS AND DUDS: Week 13 IDP Start/Sit

DE Carlos Dunlap CIN

The Bengals may well be 0-12 after facing a Jets team Sunday that has peeled off three wins in row and just smoked the Oakland Raiders. But Dunlap's a solid IDP play in Week 13—the Jets have surrendered 42 sacks this season and the second-most fantasy points to defensive linemen.

IDP WAIVER WIRE: Week 13

Lamar Jackson & Derwin James

It’s by no means certain that Derwin James will play in Week 13. And even if he does there will be rust and a snap count. But we’re also talking about a Top 5 fantasy defensive back when healthy. This is the kind of add that can win championships if James heats up in time for the playoffs.

IDP STUDS AND DUDS: Week 12 IDP Start/Sit

DE Yannick Ngakoue JAC

The Jaguars are struggling as a team, but that defensive front may be the single strongest position group on the club. All three of those stud DL are set up to feast Sunday against a Tennessee Titans team that leads the league in both sacks allowed (42) and fantasy points per game surrendered to defensive linemen in 2019.

IDP WAIVER WIRE: Week 12

QB Ryan Finley CIN & Maxx Crosby OAK

Expecting another four-sack outing out of the fourth-round pick out of Eastern Michigan is likely being just a tad unreasonable. But Maxx Crosby’s now gotten to the quarterback in four of his last six outings, and only two teams in the NFL have surrendered more sacks in 2019 than the 41 the New York Jets have allowed.

THE LOWDOWN: Week 11

Mason Rudolph and Myles Garrett

Let's not pretend like there's anything else to talk about today other than the game-ending fracas between the Steelers and Browns on Thursday Night Football. Here's my summary: Myles Garrett is an animal, Mason Rudolph and Larry Ogunjobi are punks, Mike Tomlin is an idiot, and Maurice Pouncey is a hero.

IDP WAIVER WIRE: Week 11

LB_Nick_Kwiatkoski_CHI_1

Kwiatkoski hasn’t just shown an ability to step in as a spot-starter — he’s also demonstrated the ability to pop a fat stat line. In just over three quarters against Detroit last week, Kwiatkoski piled up 10 total tackles (nine solo) while adding a sack and an interception.

THE LOWDOWN: Week 10

QB Lamar Jackson BAL

If not for his injury designation (as of Saturday afternoon), Lamar Jackson would be the top QB play for the week; but it's a testament to him that even with his score being dinged due to his "questionable" designation that he's in the Top 10.

IDP WAIVER WIRE: Week 10

LB Patrick Onwuasor BAL

Onwuasor was arguably Baltimore’s defensive MVP in a fantastic effort against previously undefeated New England, piling up eight total tackles, a sack and a forced fumble that was returned for a touchdown by cornerback Marlon Humphrey... after his Week 9 explosion, Onwuasor’s absolutely worth an add.

THE LOWDOWN: Week 9

RB Josh Jacobs OAK

I don't know about you, but it seems to me that people are not giving rookie Josh Jacobs the credit he deserves. Fantasy owners probably tend to overlook Jacobs because he's not much of a receiving threat out of the backfield, but he's a good-looking runner.

IDP STUDS AND DUDS: Week 9 IDP Start/Sit

LB A.J. Johnson & FS Kareem Jackson Denver

Thanks largely to the running of bruising tailback Nick Chubb, the Cleveland Browns have consistently been a top-five fantasy matchup for the linebacker position this year. Add in the fact that Todd Davis is banged up again, and A.J. Johnson could easily be set to see a boatload of tackle opportunities Sunday at Mile High.

IDP WAIVER WIRE: Week 9

DE Jason Pierre-Paul TB

Jason Pierre-Paul played 43 snaps in his first game action of the season, finishing with three tackles and a sack. There’s been nothing to indicate Pierre-Paul suffered a setback in the game, so his snap count will likely increase in relatively short order.

NEW AGE RANKINGS: Week 8

Tight End Hunter Henry San Diego Chargers

A new type of ranking system for a new breed of fantasy football players … the New Age Rankings. These rankings are strictly performance based, so players who have not played in at least one game (and produced stats) are not listed here.

THE LOWDOWN: Week 7

Josh Bynes ARI and Cooper Kupp LAR

In case it hasn't been painfully obvious, the Rams' offense isn't what it used to be; but the lone bright spot has been WR Cooper Kupp. Kupp has been outstanding, and going up against the third-worst defense against opposing WRs is a recipe for success... Don't let the Ravens historic defensive reputation throw you off, they've been shaky against the pass this year.

IDP WAIVER WIRE: Week 7

LB A.J. Johnson & FS Kareem Jackson Denver

Over his last two games, A.J. Johnson has piled up 17 total tackles, 1.5 sacks and an interception — production that ranks inside the Top-5 among linebackers in many fantasy scoring systems. Even headed into a less-than-ideal matchup with Kansas City, those numbers are just too good to pass up.

THE LOWDOWN: Week 6

Josh Bynes ARI and Cooper Kupp LAR

The Rams' offense isn't anywhere as intimidating as it was at this point last season, but one person who is definitely balling is Cooper Kupp. Kupp has been outstanding thus far, and is clearly the apple of Jared Goff's eye.
