Weekly starting lineup help

RISERS & FALLERS: Week 4

QB Jacoby Brissett IND

When the news broke of the sudden retirement of Andrew Luck, everyone hit the emergency stop on all Indianapolis’ fantasy options. Marlon Mack dropped from a RB1 to a RB2/3 outlook and T.Y. Hilton dropped a full round at the very least. But, all things considered, you couldn’t have asked for more out of the career backup in Jacoby Brissett.

FIRE & ICE: Week 4

QB_Russell_Wilson_SEA_1

Russell Wilson has performed like everyone knows he is capable of after the first three weeks of the season. Including producing his best game from a fantasy perspective so far last week. This week should only help to further this trend of him being a top fantasy quarterback.

FLEX APPEAL: WEEK 4

RB Wayne Gallman NYG

Gallman was this week’s hot waiver wire add, and you can go ahead and play him in Week 4. Yes, it’s risky, but someone has to get the lion’s share of the touches in the Giants backfield. Washington is not an imposing matchup for running backs, and can’t stack the box with how well Daniel Jones looked last week.

LIKE/DISLIKE: Week 4

RB James Conner PIT

James Conner has been less than stellar this year rushing for only 97 yards and one score. Things are looking up this week for him though as he gets a soft matchup with the Bengals, who are the second-worst team against the running back position.

CORNER LOCKDOWN: Week 4

WR Tyler Boyd CIN

Even though Tyler Boyd hasn’t found pay-dirt yet, he’s still enjoying a great start to his season. Through three games, Boyd has seen an absurd 32 targets and has caught 24 balls for 250 yards.

THE GREY REPORT: Week 4

QB_Dak_Prescott_DAL_1

Can Daniel Jones keep the good times rolling? Can Dak Prescott and the Dallas Cowboys stay hot as the schedule begins to get tougher? David Grey will breakdown the matchups in this week’s edition of the “Grey Report,” because, “Not All ...

START/BENCH: Week 4

RB Chris Carson SEA

There's been a lot of hand-wringing lately regarding Chris Carson after he lost his third fumble in as many games last week against the Saints. But Pete Carroll said this week the team is still behind Carson, and the Cardinals were just shredded by Christian McCaffrey.

RED ZONE: Target Analysis

WR_Mike_Evans_TBB_1

Mike Evans scored all three of his touchdowns in the first half of Sunday's game against the Giants. Evans had four red zone opportunities and scored twice, with his third touchdown coming from just outside the red zone.

STREAMING DEFENSES: Week 4

Helmet_Baltimore_Ravens_1

Check your waivers for this D/ST, as there’s a chance they were dropped before battling the Chiefs last week. Things get much easier this Sunday, as the Ravens return home to play the Browns in a divisional contest.

STRENGTH OF SCHEDULE: Good/Bad Matchups – Week 4

QB Kirk Cousins MIN

Cousins looked better in Week 3 then he did the prior two weeks, but he was facing Oakland’s defense. Week 4 he has to play Chicago, which is the toughest matchup for opposing quarterbacks. So yeah, stay far away from this matchup if you can. While were at it, just drop Cousins, you'll be better off.

TRAPS & TRENDS: Week 4

QB Baker Mayfield CLE

When Mayfield tried to hang in the pocket and throw, he is flashing happy feet, is dropping his head and not looking downfield and is anticipating pressure that sometimes wasn’t there (seeing ghosts). Can Cleveland rework and improve its offensive line? We’ll see.

THE LOWDOWN: Week 3

QB Josh Allen BUF

I had Lamar Jackson starting to make a meaningful impact in 2020, not this season – yet he has had two great games to open the season, and you can just see his confidence grow as a passer. Ditto Josh Allen and to a lesser extent Dak Prescott.

RISERS/FALLERS: Week 3

QB Lamar Jackson BAL

Who is currently playing the best football in fantasy? Just two games in, Lamar Jackson and Patrick Mahomes are arguably the top two. Out-gunning Mahomes could see Jackson become the new king of the mountain.

BOLD PREDICTIONS: Week 3

TE George Kittle SF

Last week, the Pittsburgh defense allowed Will Dissly to score twice. Expect Jimmy Garoppolo to continue to pepper George Kittle with targets (he leads all San Francisco pass-catchers with 13 targets through two weeks) and connect on a red zone touchdown this week against Pittsburgh.

FLEX APPEAL: Week 3

WR John Ross CIN & Tedric Thompson SEA

Can you name the leading receiver in the NFL through two weeks? If you answered John Ross, then give yourself a pat on the back, as that is correct. Yes, Buffalo is a tough matchup, but it doesn’t matter. You have to stay in the flames, Sharks.

THE PROGNOSTICATOR: Week 3

QB Kyler Murray Oklahoma

Carolina is already in desperation mode for a win and if by some miracle Kyle Allen rallies his team for a win, he may never look back. It was Kyle Allen that beat out Kyler Murray at Texas A&M for the quarterback job before Murray transferred to Oklahoma.

LIKE/DISLIKE: Week 3

RB Austin Ekeler LAC

Ekeler is crushing it in the absence of Melvin Gordon, in fact at this point, the Chargers are probably happy he is not reporting. Ekeler and Jackson have a nice rotation going so far, that seems to be matchup proof to start the season.

CORNER LOCKDOWN: Week 3

RB David Montgomery CHI

David Montgomery hasn’t seen many targets in the passing game, but as long as he’s getting the majority of the carries and goal line work, then he’s going to be very solid for fantasy purposes moving forward.

FIRE & ICE: Week 3

WR_T.Y._Hilton_IND_1

Don’t get me wrong, T.Y. Hilton has been more than serviceable in his first two weeks this year logging touchdowns in each game, but he hasn’t had that signature big play we’ve become accustomed to seeing from him; failing to go over 100-yards receiving in either of the first two weeks.

THE GREY REPORT: Week 3

QB Patrick Mahomes Kansas City Chiefs

Can the Baltimore defense slow down Patrick Mahomes and the high-powered Kansas City offense How will all the new quarterbacks fare in Week 3? David Grey will examine all the matchups in this week’s “Grey Report,” because, “Not All Matchups ...

START/BENCH: Week 3

QB Jimmy Garoppolo SF

Like their division-mates in Los Angeles and Seattle, San Francisco is off to a 2-0 start ahead of its home opener Sunday against reeling Pittsburgh. Garoppolo has been a reason for that success and is a player to target on fantasy waiver wires in Week 3.

Read More »

5 UP/5 DOWN: Week 2

LB Darius Leonard tackles RB Joe Mixon

Through two weeks, Mixon has 17 carries for just 27 yards, and only five receptions for 17 yards, and has yet to reach the end zone. Cincinnati has road games against Buffalo and Pittsburgh coming up before returning home to host Arizona. If Mixon’s numbers don’t dramatically improve by then, you’ll want to see if you can find a trade partner.

OFFENSE: Takeaways – Week 2

RB Marlon Mack IND

Marlon Mack is leading the NFL in rushing attempts so far with 45.. Dalvin Cook is the next best with 41 attempts for 265 yards. Le’Veon Bell, Sony Michel and Ezekiel Elliott round out the Top-5 for rushing attempts with 36 each.

STREAMING DEFENSES: Week 3

LB Wesley Woodyard TEN

Thursday night games tend to be much lower scoring than weekend match ups. Add in a rookie quarterback with a limited offense, and the Titans have a recipe for fantasy success. Gardner Minshew fumbled several times in his last appearance and the shaky play should continue in this divisional match up.

STRENGTH OF SCHEDULE: Good/Bad Matchups – Week 3

QB Baker Mayfield CLE

In Week 3, Mayfield gets to face the Rams, who are the third-toughest matchup for opposing quarterbacks. I hope Mayfield and the hype train that is Cleveland comes through, but stats don’t lie. I still like Mayfield for the rest of the season, but he could struggle yet again this week.
