TRAPS & TRENDS: Week 15

RB David Montgomery CHI

The success of David Montgomery remains one of the NFL’s more surprising late-season stories. During the Chicago Bears’ 33-27 upset win over the Minnesota Vikings, Montgomery steamrolled the Vikings defense with 32 carries for 146 yards and two touchdowns.

SHOW ME WHERE IT HURTS: Week 15 Injury Fallout

RB Clyde Edwards-Helaire KCC

Le'Veon Bell no longer appears to have the burst that once made him an elite talent, but he still displays good patience and vision, which counts for something in this high-flying offense. If Edwards-Helaire is out, then you can consider Bell a solid top-20 option against the Falcons.

THE DIVE: Week 15 “Patiently Waiting”

RB Cam Akers LA Rams & LB Kendall Beckwith Tampa Bay

Cam AKers has had extra time to rest and prepare for a juicy Week 15 home matchup against the New York Jets, who allow the 10th most fantasy points to opposing running backs. Akers may be a low-end RB2, but has the ceiling to be a top option this week!

TRAPS & TRENDS: Week 13

QB_Matthew_Stafford_DET_1

Apparently Matt Patricia was holding the Detroit offense back because Stafford erupted against Chicago for a season-high 402 passing yards and three touchdowns ... without Golladay in the lineup.

SHOW ME WHERE IT HURTS: Week 12 Injury Fallout

RB Josh Jacobs OAK

If Josh Jacobs is forced to miss Week 13 against the New York Jets, Devontae Booker would be the next man up. Booker doesn’t quite have the athleticism and vision of Jacobs, but he has mimicked his power running style well this season, suggesting that he should be a solid fill-in.

GAME DAY UPDATE: Week 12

WR Julio Jones Atlanta Falcons

Julio Jones is OUT today as are many other star players. Be careful with the Tuesday Baltimore/Pittsburgh game, if it doesn't get played or is pushed off to Week 18, you may end up with a zero.

TRAPS & TRENDS: Week 11

RB J.K. Dobbins Baltimore Ravens

Out-touching Edwards and Ingram by a count of 17-3-2 in the game doesn’t mean that Dobbins’ name is cemented in stone as Baltimore’s No. 1 runner, but the team clearly wants him to stake his claim to the job.

SHOW ME WHERE IT HURTS: Week 11 Injury Fallout

QB Joe Burrow CIN

This is a brutal end to a strong rookie season for Burrow, and his injury positions second-year quarterback Ryan Finley as Cincinnati’s starter for the remainder of the season. It’s certainly possible that Finley has improved in Year 2, but if his play on Sunday is any indication, the Cincinnati offense will be difficult to trust..

SHOW ME WHERE IT HURTS: Week 9 Injury Fallout

RB David Johnson and QB Deshaun Watson Houston Texans

David Johnson will now have to clear the NFL’s concussion protocol in order to play in Week 10 against the Browns, so keep an eye on his status as Sunday approaches. If he is unable to clear the protocol in time for that game, then Duke Johnson would be the team’s lead back.

TRAPS & TRENDS: Week 8

RB Jonathan Taylor Indianapolis Colts

His role as a receiver has been largely disappointing during the last month, and now Jonathan Taylor’s rushing workload took a hit during the Indianapolis Colts’ Week 8 win over the Detroit Lions.

SHOW ME WHERE IT HURTS: Week 8 Injury Fallout

TE George Kittle SF

George Kittle left Sunday’s game against Seattle with a foot injury in the fourth quarter, and he did not return to the game. After the game, San Francisco head coach Kyle Shanahan stated that X-rays revealed no broken bones and that Kittle will undergo an MRI on Monday.

TRAPS & TRENDS: Week 7

RB Clyde Edwards-Helaire KCC

Should Charles Edward-Helaire managers hit the panic button with a still very capable Le’Veon Bell in the backfield mix? Senior FantasySharks.com writer Matt Wilson answers that question and takes a look at three other changing backfields in his newest edition ...

SHOW ME WHERE IT HURTS: Week 7 Injury Fallout

WR Odell Beckham CLE

Odell Beckham left Sunday’s game against the Bengals with a knee injury in the first quarter. He suffered the injury when he attempted to tackle a defender who intercepted Baker Mayfield’s pass, and he did not return to the game... Beckham will undergo an MRI on Monday.

SHOW ME WHERE IT HURTS: Week 6 Injury Fallout

RB Raheem Mostert SF

We’ll have to wait for the team to update us on the injury, but for now, it appears that Mostert’s Week 7 status may be in question. If he is unable to play in that game against the Patriots, then Jerick McKinnon could become the team’s main back again, much like he was when Mostert was sidelined with a knee sprain.

SHOW ME WHERE IT HURTS: Week 5 Injury Fallout

QB_Dak_Prescott_DAL_3

This is a tough blow for the Cowboys and for Prescott, and the team will have to move forward with Andy Dalton under center. There’s no doubt that Dalton will be a significant downgrade from Prescott, but his nine years of starting experience make him a stable option for the team.

RED LIGHT, GREEN LIGHT: Week 4

red-light-green-light

Only three other NFL teams besides Tampa Bay have allowed more receiving yards to opposing backfields, so look for Ekeler to continue serving as a regular chain mover for the Bolts as they try to keep up as heavy underdogs.

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 ...

GRAB BAG: Week 3

QB Justin Herbert LA Chargers

Tyrod Taylor was declared inactive minutes before the matchup with the Chiefs. The rookie Herbert, with little time to prepare, stepped up and led the Chargers to an almost-upset against the defending Super Bowl champions completing 22 or 33 passes for 311 yards and a touchdown - an excellent start for a first-timer.

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.
