THE LOWDOWN: Week 11

RB Dalvin Cook MIN

I'm looking forward to seeing how the Vikings make use of Dalvin Cook. Coming off a bye, the Vikings' coaching staff stated this week that they had no concerns about Cook participating in full practices-- great news for fantasy owners...

NEW AGE RANKINGS: Week 8

RB Kareem Hunt, Kansas City Chiefs

Kareem Hunt is starting to ball the last couple of weeks: as a matter of fact, he’s moved up five spots – from #11 to #6 – in just one week. If you’re playing Kansas City, I’m sure every team looks to take away the pass and risk having Hunt beat them ... which means Hunt should be seeing a lot of open space on Sundays for the remainder of the season.

NEW AGE RANKINGS: Week 11

RB_Tevin_Coleman_ATL_1

Tevin Coleman is probably getting the majority of the action in the Atlanta backfield this weekend, since starter Devonta Freeman is in the league's concussion protocol. There's an argument to be made that Coleman could be starting at running back for over half the teams in the NFL.

THE LOWDOWN: Week 10

RB_Ezekiel_Elliott_DAL_3

I've had enough of the Ezekiel Elliott situation. Time for the Cowboys to shut the RB down, have him serve the six games and be ready for a playoff run. This on again, off again stuff is not just frustrating, it is a questionable strategy on the part of Elliott and the Cowboys.

THE LOWDOWN: Week 9

WR_DeAndre_Hopkins_HOU_1

Despite losing rookie QB sensation Deshaun Watson for the season, WR DeAndre Hopkins sits on top of this week's match-ups. Teammate Will Fuller sees a drop in standing due to the perceived inability of new Houston QB Tom Savage to throw as good a deep ball as Watson.

THE LOWDOWN: Week 5

RB_Todd_Gurley_STL_2

The play of Todd Gurley has been simply outstanding thus far, as has that of Kareem Hunt. Even though Christian McCaffrey hasn't been able to get going running the ball, he's been a great addition to the Panthers' passing game, and should always provide a nice floor for owners.

THE LOWDOWN: Week 4

QB Jay Cutler MIA

You know what a good rule of thumb is for fantasy football? No matter how crappy a quarterback may be, he instantly becomes a Top-10 play if he's going up against the Saints' defense-- so that explains why you see Jay Cutler on this list.
