VIP EARLY GRAB BAG: Week 16

RB Damien Williams KC

If you’re in a bind at running back or are looking for a player with a high weekly upside, Damien Williams is your guy if Spencer Ware continues to sit out with his injury. View him as a mid-level RB2 for as long as Ware is sidelined.

VIP EARLY GRAB BAG: Week 15

RB_Derrick_Henry_TEN_1

Now THAT is the Derrick Henry that many fantasy players hoped he would be when they invested in him in fantasy drafts this past summer. Henry has mostly been a disappointment this season but had a fantasy performance of the ages last Thursday against Jacksonville.

VIP GAME CAPSULES: Week 14 – Thursday Edition

RB_Derrick_Henry_TEN_1

Derrick Henry didn't erupt against the Jets as many had expected, but the early-down bulldozer still hit pay dirt for the fifth time in his last six games. Even though Jacksonville has yielded the sixth-fewest rushing yards and the second-fewest rushing touchdowns to the tailback position, the touchdown-dependent Henry has some things working in his favor.

VIP EARLY GRAB BAG: Week 14

WR Courtland Sutton WR

Courtland Sutton is still an unreliable option to plug into your starting lineup, but he holds high-end WR3 value if he can continue to see upwards of 7+ targets per game. For now, though, consider him a low-end WR3/borderline Flex play in 12-team leagues.

VIP EARLY GRAB BAG: Week 12

QB Lamar Jackson BAL

With Joe Flacco sidelined with a hip injury, Lamar Jackson started his first game as an NFL quarterback in Week 11 and while he did not disappoint, he didn’t light the world on fire either as his performance still left much to be desired.

VIP EARLY GRAB BAG: Week 11

WR Josh Doctson WAS

Another week, another decent performance out of Josh Doctson. Doctson logged four receptions for 46 receiving yards and a touchdown against Tampa Bay yesterday, totaling a season-high 14.6 PPR fantasy points on the day.

VIP EARLY GRAB BAG: Week 10

RB_Duke_Johnson_CLE_1

Duke Johnson had his best fantasy performance of the season yesterday against the Chiefs. Johnson ran the ball just once for eight rushing yards, but caught nine receptions on nine targets for 78 receiving yards and scored two receiving touchdowns in the Browns 37-21 loss to the Chiefs.

VIP GAME CAPSULES: Week 9 – Thursday Edition

WR Jordy Nelson OAK & CB T.J. Carrie CLE

Struggling Jordy Nelson will draw coverage from Richard Sherman. Mediocre 31-year-old Brandon LaFell (Jon Gruden loves his veterans) quietly operated as the replacement for Amari Cooper last week (3-39-1 on four targets) and not Martavis Bryant who posted a goose-egg on zero targets.

VIP GAME CAPSULES: Week 8 – Sunday and Monday Edition

LB Mychal Kendricks PHI

It looks like the Philadelphia Eagles’ Super Bowl hangover is still lingering. After showing strong flashes of their 2017 championship form during a 34-13 road victory over the New York Giants in Week 6, the Eagles followed that up with a head-scratching 21-17 home loss to the Carolina Panthers. Can the Philadelphia offense exploit a banged-up Jacksonville Jaguars defense that has allowed an average of 30 points per game the last three weeks?

VIP GAME CAPSULES: Week 8 – Thursday Edition

DL_J.J._Watt_HOU_1

Riding a two-game road losing streak, an injury-depleted Miami Dolphins offense (Ryan Tannehill, Kenny Stills and Albert Wilson won’t play) has the misfortune of facing a Houston Texans defense that has been playing much better lately. This is also a grudge match between fill-in starter Brock Osweiler and his former team.

VIP EARLY GRAB BAG: Week 8

QB Baker Mayfield CLE

If you are looking for a bye-week fill in at the quarterback position, look no further than Baker Mayfield. He’s a viable option and should produce low-end QB1 numbers over the next three weeks. Scoop him up, and if you have the bench space, you could always keep him stashed there as insurance just in case something happens to your starting quarterback.

VIP GAME CAPSULES: Week 7 – Sunday and Monday Edition

QB_Marcus_Mariota_TEN_1

Tennessee has scored only two touchdowns in its last four games and has tallied just five touchdowns in half a dozen games played. There are simply no safe fantasy starters here. Marcus Mariota, playing hurt and operating behind a banged-up offensive line, has been terrible. In three road contests, he has tossed no touchdown passes and has passed for less than 130 yards in all of them.

VIP GAME CAPSULES: Week 7 – Thursday Edition

QB Case Keenum DEN

Case Keenum is coming off two straight outings with at least 320 passing yards and two touchdown tosses. The Broncos will emphasize the run against an Arizona Cardinals defense that has allowed the second-most rushing yards to the tailback position, so yet another big outing from Keenum is unlikely.

VIP EARLY GRAB BAG: Week 7

QB_Jameis_Winston_TBB_1

There’s no shortage of firepower on the offensive side of the ball. Considering the Tampa Bay defense is below-average, the team is likely to be in a bunch of shootouts, making Winston a high-end QB2 with low-end QB1 upside.

RB_Devonta_Freeman_ATL_1

There’s no place like home. There’s no place like home. That’s what we learned about the Atlanta Falcons offense last week. In each of their three home contests, the Falcons have scored at least 31 points, but they’ve tallied fewer than 18 points in two road contests played outdoors.

VIP EARLY GRAB BAG: Week 6

RB Isaiah Crowell NYJ

Isaiah Crowell is likely already owned in 10- and 12-team leagues, but if you’re in an eight-team league or a shallow rostered 10-team league, he undoubtedly needs to be picked up and rostered. Crowell had a career day against Denver on Sunday, rushing for 219 yards on just 15 carries, an absurd average of 14.6 yards per carry.

VIP GAME CAPSULES: Week 5

QB_Marcus_Mariota_TEN_1

The Buffalo Bills defense ranks just 21st in fantasy points allowed to quarterbacks, but the Bills have yielded the 11th-fewest wideout fantasy points. Davis is expected to draw coverage from talented Buffalo cornerback Tre’Davious White, which should result in a quiet game for him and lower production for Mariota.

VIP GAME CAPSULES: Week 4 – Sunday Thru Monday

S Jamal Adams NYJ

Remember all that optimism about the New York Jets after they pounded the Detroit Lions back in Week 1? After watching the Jets offense score 17 or fewer points in their last two outings, which were both losses, fantasy owners receieved a reality check about Gang Green.

VIP GAME CAPSULES: Week 3 – Sunday thru Monday

QB_Drew_Brees_NOS_1

Any resemblance between the 2017 New Orleans Saints and the 2018 version is purely coincidental right now. The Saints apparently have forgotten that they were the NFL’s fifth-best rushing team last year, and the development of what had been touted as an up-and-coming defense has slammed into reverse.

VIP GAME CAPSULES: Week 2 (Sunday – Monday)

QB Mitchell Trubisky CHI

The long-awaited unveil of new Chicago Bears head coach Matt Nagy’s offense started off great but fizzled out during the team’s Week 1 road loss to the Green Bay Packers. The Bears scored just once, and Mitch Trubisky, who turned in a mixed bag of a performance, reminded us that he’s still a work in progress.
