KEEPER STOCK WATCH: Week 7

WR Tee Higgins CIN

Believe it or not, as much as I have poo-pooed (official fantasy terminology) A.J. Green’s performance this year, I think his week 6 breakout is a good thing for Higgins moving forward. There is no doubt that Joe Burrow has a connection with Higgins and the more defenses can move away from Higgins, the better.

START/BENCH: Week 7

WR Chase Claypool PIT

Chase Claypool is the latest greatest thing ever after his recent hot streak — a hot streak that will more than likely continue this week. Tennessee is a good team, but it is surrendering the third-most fantasy points to wideouts in 2020.

STREAMING DEFENSES: Week 7

Helmet_New_Orleans_Saints_1

New Orleans will be taking on Carolina in an NFC South divisional matchup. Marcus Davenport and Marshon Lattimore have had an extra week of recovery, and will be desperately needed in this contest. Look for the Saints to apply pressure to Teddy Bridgewater all game, resulting in a bunch of sacks.

TRAPS & TRENDS: Week 6

TE Rob Gronkowski & QB Tom Brady Tampa Bay

Did Rob Gronkowski re-emerge as a legit fantasy option during an NFL weekend that featured 14 tight end touchdowns? FantasySharks.com senior writer Matt Wilson answers that question and kicks the tires on the fantasy prospects of four other tight ends ...

FLEX APPEAL: Week 6

WR Deebo Samuel SF

The 49ers are out for blood after that embarrassing loss, and this contest against the Rams could be a shootout. Deebo Samuel should be busy in this one, which means it could be his breakout game in 2020. Flex the sophomore with confidence in Week 6.

IDP STUDS AND DUDS: Week 6 IDP Start/Sit

LB Bobby Okereke IND & WR Odell Beckham CLE

Okereke did more than just play—he shined last week, racking up 10 total tackles and intercepting a pass. Leonard is on track to sit again this week when the Colts host the Cincinnati Bengals, which means a full-time role for Okereke in a top-five IDP matchup.

LIKE/DISLIKE: Week 6

Quarterback Ben Roethlisberger Pittsburgh Steelers

Big Ben has been on fire since starting his comeback tour this year. He’s thrown for at least two scores in all four games and has just one interception. This week the Steelers take on a divisional foe in the Cleveland Browns that have allowed the 3rd most touchdowns to quarterbacks.

THE GREY REPORT: Week 6

RB Aaron Jones and QB Aaron Rodgers Green Bay Packers

Can Aaron Jones and Green Bay stay hot coming out of its bye? Will Patrick Mahomes and Kansas City bounce back from a disappointing Week 5? David Grey will breakdown all the matchups in this week’s “Grey Report,” because, “not all ...

KEEPING AHEAD: High Fives with MJ

WR Henry Ruggs Las Vegas

The mess just keeps coming. Dak Prescott out. Le’veon cut. A.J. Green quit. More positive tests shutting down facilities – currently the Atlanta Falcons (and their opponent, the Vikings) are the latest potential COVID-impacted teams. Like I said, it’s a ...

CORNER LOCKDOWN: Week 6

RB Myles Gaskin MIA

Myles Gaskin is a great bet to see another 20 touches this weekend against the laughable Jets, so owners should get him in their lineups as a strong RB2 play. He will give you at least 80 yards and a score in Week 6.

KEEPER STOCK WATCH: Week 6

WR Darius Slayton, NYG

The Giants have the perfect recipe for fantasy success for a wideout – their defense is horrid, they have no running game, the competing wideouts are not good, but just good enough to warrant some coverage by opposing defenses, and, while it can be argued this isn’t wonderful, Daniel Jones loves to throw to him.

START/BENCH: Week 6

WR Jamison Crowder NYJ & Jordan Poyer BUF

I know that starting Jamison Crowder makes you feel dirty because it feels wrong to benefit off the misery that is being the No. 1 receiver for the Jets. But Miami is sixth in fantasy points allowed to wide receivers this year despite two high-priced corners.

DIARY OF A FANTASY VIRGIN: Week 6

WR Cole Beasley BUF

We had a Tuesday Night Football game between the “So this is what a field looks like” Tennessee Titans and the “Hey our QB Josh Allen was taken after Sam Darnold in the same draft” Buffalo Bills that kept Tennessee with a perfect record.

FANTASY IMPACT: Week 6

TE Gerald Everett LA Rams

Tyler Higbee (TE 9) is the biggest sell candidate of any player now. He is clearly losing his job to Gerald Everett. Higbee was a star out of necessity last year with injuries to Everett and Cooper Kupp.

STREAMING DEFENSES: Week 6

Helmet_Washington_Redskins_1

Washington takes on turnover prone Daniel Jones this coming weekend. Their stellar front should be able to effectively rush Jones all game. The Football’s are entering a stretch of games that brings relief after a tough early schedule. Look for their underrated defense to have a big outing against the hapless Giants.

STRENGTH OF SCHEDULE: Good/Bad Matchups – Week 6

QB Kirk Cousins MIN & DE Markus Golden

This week Kirk Cousins faces Atlanta, the second-best matchup for opposing quarterbacks. This secondary has been gutted all season and just made Teddy Bridgewater look like a Hall-of-Famer in Week 5. If you are someone who lost Dak Prescott last week (ugh …), give Cousins a look in Week 6.

THE PROGNOSTICATOR: Week 5

QB Justin Herbert LA Chargers

Justin Herbert looks like the real deal and that's great for the Chargers' future prospects. When you look at the two quarterbacks in this game, they'll actually be evenly matched; Herbert on his way up and Brees on his way down, are going to meet somewhere in the middle.

FLEX APPEAL: Week 5

WR Jamison Crowder NYJ & Jordan Poyer BUF

Why in the world are people still sleeping on Jamison Crowder? He has played in two games, has averaged over 10 targets, and has over 100 yards receiving in both contests.

IDP STUDS AND DUDS: Week 5 IDP Start/Sit

DL_Cameron_Heyward_PIT_1

The Eagles are a hot mess up front—Philly will most likely be starting reserves at both tackles, and the team has already surrendered 14 sacks this season. Most importantly, no team in the NFL has surrendered more fantasy points to defensive linemen. Queue Cameron Heyward.

Read More »

LIKE/DISLIKE: Week 5

QB Teddy Bridgewater CAR

Teddy Bridgewater has thrown six touchdown passes on the year and has at least one in all but one game thus far. He has plenty of weapons at his disposal and should provide a solid return if you are looking for a bye-week fill-in this week.

CORNER LOCKDOWN: Week 5

RB Antonio Gibson WAS

Antonio Gibson needs to be in your starting lineup this week against a Rams defense that is allowing just over 120 rushing yards a game. At minimum, he should see 15 touches and all the goal line work.

FANTASY IMPACT: Week 5

RB Joe Mixon CIN

Joe Mixon is the player with the most unknowns moving forward but this is also the best opportunity to sell high. He plays Baltimore and Indianapolis the next two weeks which will drag down his value.

THE GREY REPORT: Week 5

QB Josh Allen BUF

Can Josh Allen and the Buffalo offense continue to prove the doubters wrong? Will Calvin Ridley lay another goose egg and burn fantasy owners once again? David Grey will breakdown all the matchups in this week’s “Grey Report,” because, “not all ...

Read More »

START/BENCH: Week 5

QB Daniel Jones NYG

Given how putrid the Giants have looked offensively in 2020, rolling out Daniel Jones in fantasy isn’t for the feint of heart. But if Jones can’t get it done against a Dallas defense that has been torn to shreds in recent weeks, then there’s no point in rostering him at all.

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.

DFS STACK ATTACK: Week 4

TE Mark Andrews BAL

Mark Andrews is certainly pricey, but a deflated ownership makes the cost worth it. He and Lamar Jackson barely missed on some huge plays, and would carry more ownership had they translated to fantasy points.

FLEX APPEAL: Week 4

RB Antonio Gibson WAS

Yes, Baltimore is a very tough matchup, but Washington is going to need its promising rookie if they want to stay competitive in this contest. Gibson continues to be the lead dog here, and he has never averaged less than 4 yards per carry so far in his rookie season.
