DRAFT DAY: Team Defenses

Helmet_Buffalo_Bills_1

Buffalo is a great team defense to start the year with and you should have little trouble taking them very late in your draft. They start the season with a set of very favorable matchups (at New York Jets, at New York Giants, vs. Cincinnati).

FANTASY FOOTBALL: Do’s and Don’ts

RB_Todd_Gurley_STL_1

Add security to your roster be acquiring your star running back's back up. Although they may spend the entire season riding your bench, you'll have peace of mind knowing that your biggest investment is insured. This is especially true if your star running back already has an injury history.

QB_Jared_Goff_LAR_1

LB Cory Littleton LA Rams

In order to help you in one final quest for a fantasy championship, I’ll be publishing individual defensive player (IDP) rankings each week during the NFL playoffs here at Fantasy Sharks. These rankings assume a league format where teams start two defensive linemen, two linebackers, two defensive backs and a “flex” spot or two.

Can Patrick Mahomes keep his magical season going or will Tom Brady and the weather be too much to overcome?

THE GREY REPORT: Divisional Playoff

IDP PLAYOFF RANKINGS: Wild Card Round

DL_J.J._Watt_HOU_2

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 GREY REPORT: Wild Card Weekend

QB Lamar Jackson BAL

Can Nick Foles continue his magical run or will Khalil Mack and the Chicago defense break his magic wand? Can Lamar Jackson take Baltimore to the next level and get past the Los Angeles Chargers? David Grey will examine all the matchups in this week’s “Grey Report,” because “not all matchups are black and white.”

FLEX APPEAL: Week 17

WR_Jamison_Crowder_WAS_1

Crowder isn’t an exciting flex, but he is a high-floor flex if that’s what you need this week... Enter Philadelphia’s hapless secondary and it looks like Crowder could end the season on a high note.

THE PROGNOSTICATOR: Week 17

QB Andrew Luck IND

Will Andrew Luck throw a ton and post a big score? Why yes, yes he will. T.Y. Hilton should be used here but there is no hotter team in football right now than the Tennessee Titans. They own the NFL's best win streak at four and there's a reason for that, they're playing good football.

THE GREY REPORT: Week 17

QB Lamar Jackson BAL

Can Nick Foles and Philadelphia continue the magical late-season run and sneak into the playoffs? Can Lamar Jackson build on last week’s performance and help Baltimore reach the playoffs? David Grey will breakdown all the matchups in this week’s “Grey Report,” because “not all matchups are black and white.”

STRENGTH OF SCHEDULE: Good/Bad Matchups – Week 17

QB_Derek_Carr_OAK_2

Derek Carr was not exactly lighting the world on fire on Christmas Eve, but at least he didn’t turn the ball over. He will have to throw a ton in week 17, though, as Kansas City is knocking on the door this week. They are the 3rd best matchup for opposing quarterbacks on the year.

CORNER LOCKDOWN: Week 17

QB Sam Darnold NYJ

The rookie QB has had his share of bad games in 2018, but he looks like he’s starting to figure it all out. Darnold has been great over the last two weeks, throwing for five touchdowns and zero interceptions. He’s making better decisions and has really built some nice chemistry with wide out Robby Anderson.

START/BENCH: Week 17

RB Chris Carson SEA

After gashing Kansas City for 116 yards and two scores last week, Carson went past 1,000 rushing yards for the season. It’s possible he won’t play the entire game here, but it’s worth the risk in a prime fantasy matchup for running backs.

GRINDERS & GAMBLES: Week 17

QB_Derek_Carr_OAK_3

He didn’t grind against Denver because Case Keenum was the MVP quarterback for Oakland in that game. Kansas City is the last stop and he should have to throw this week once Oakland gets behind.

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.

THE PROGNOSTICATOR: Week 16

Lombardi_Trophy_Confetti_1

Have no fear for those that play in Week 17 games, we'll all be here next week too and while we run a lighter schedule though the playoffs, we'll continue to have coverage, projections and all that goes along with that very exciting time of the year.

FLEX APPEAL: Week 16

RB_Peyton_Barber_TBB_1

Peyton Barber was the only running back to receive a carry in Week 15, and he has scored in 4 of his past 5 games. The math adds up here to yet another productive day for the underrated back out of Auburn.

THE GREY REPORT: Week 16

QB_Drew_Brees_NOS_1

Can Philip Rivers and the Los Angeles Chargers solve the stingy Baltimore defense? Can Drew Brees and New Orleans offense get back on track now that the team has returned home? David Grey will examine all the matchups in this week’s “Grey Report” because “not all matchups are black and white.”

CORNER LOCKDOWN: Week 16

RB Gus Edwards BAL DT Geno Atkins CIN

Gus Edwards should see plenty of work this weekend against the Chargers as both teams will look to run often and control the ball. It’s not the greatest matchup for Edwards, but based on his volume, he needs to be in fantasy lineups.

Read More »

START/BENCH: Week 16

RB Nick Chubb CLE

Were it not so late in the season, I’d be sorely tempted to add the hard-charging Chubb to the “Studs” list. In Week 16 he hits the matchup jackpot too against Cincinnati’s tissue-paper defense.

THE LOWDOWN: Week 15

RB Dalvin Cook MIN

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...
