NFL DRAFT: Top-5 Quarterbacks

Quarterback Sam Darnold USC

Like Sam Bradford when he was coming out, the ceiling is high for USC Quarterback Sam Darnold. Bradford has shown flashes of being a franchise quarterback, but he just can’t stay healthy. Will Browns fans be buying Darnold jerseys in droves?

QB_Tom_Brady_NEP_3

Welcome my fantasy brethren to another edition of The Prognosticator, may it cap your season. What a ride it’s been this 2017 NFL season, as usual, big name injuries led to a lot of heartache. Until Todd Gurley got it ...

THE PROGNOSTICATOR: Week 17

RB_Bilal_Powell_NYJ_2

The Jets know that their only chance at beating the Patriots will come if they can run the ball. No other scenario wins them this game. They also know that the only thing they actually can do somewhat well is run the football. Another nice day is on the way for Bilal Powell.

CORNER LOCKDOWN: Week 17

WR_Jamison_Crowder_WAS_2

Crowder started the year as an afterthought, but has really picked it up the last half of the season. He’s scored all three of his touchdowns in the last five games and has a plus matchup with the Giants this week.

KC_Alex_Smith_KCC_1

Rookie Patrick Mahomes will make his regular-season starting debut while Alex Smith enjoys a breather. Kareem Hunt, Tyreek Hill and Travis Kelce are also expected to play very limited snaps or not suit up at all. If you own any of Kansas City’s “Big Four” fantasy stars, there’s simply no reason to start them.

LIKE/DISLIKE: Week 17

QB_Blake_Bortles_JAC_2

Minus Sunday’s game against San Francisco, Jacksonville has the league’s best defense, meaning Blake Bortles should have many possessions. Plus, Tennessee has the fifth-best rushing defense (89.1 yards, 3.6 average), so Bortles will probably be relied on to lead the offense, if he plays.

THE LOWDOWN: Week 16

RB_Ezekiel_Elliott_DAL_2

Zeke Elliott makes his way back to the field this week. You have to discount Elliott's match-up a little bit due to his time spent away from the game, but he still should get the majority of touches against the Seahawks...

CORNER LOCKDOWN: Week 16

RB_Kenyan_Drake_MIA_1

Kenyan Drake has breakout written all over him for 2018 and still has a few weeks left to shine this year. He should get a big workload against the Chiefs this week and will not disappoint.

5 UP/5 DOWN: Week 16

RB_Lamar_Miller_HOU_1

Lamar Miller has been invisible the last two weeks in the Houston offense. Rushing for 85 total yards the last two games is not what you would expect out of a top-tier running back. To make matters worse, they play a Pittsburgh team next week looking for a win after a tough loss.

CORNER LOCKDOWN: Week 15

WR_Martavis_Bryant_PIT_1

Bryant has quietly received 22 target over the last three weeks, including 10 last week against the Ravens. His numbers haven’t been great as nearly every week it’s the Le’Veon Bell and Antonio Brown show but Bryant has serious sleeper appeal this week, in what could be the game of the year against the Patriots.

WR_Philip_Rivers_SDC_1

Two things have changed since the Los Angeles Chargers and the Kansas City Chiefs clashed back in Week 3. The Chargers offense is playing better, and the Chiefs defense is playing worse. Keep rolling with the red-hot duo of Philip Rivers and Keenan Allen versus a Kansas City defense that has allowed the seventh-most quarterback fantasy points and the second-most wideout fantasy points, respectively.

LIKE/DISLIKE: Week 15

WR_Philip_Rivers_SDC_1

Coming into this season, I thought the Chargers would be a run-first team with new head coach Anthony Lynn. Instead, Rivers has thrown at least one touchdown pass in every game except for Week 3.

5 UP/5 DOWN: Week 15

QB Josh McCown NYJ

Josh McCown’s broken hand injury has killed Anderson’s production for the rest of the season. If you think Bryce Petty, or god forbid Christian Hackenberg, can duplicate McCown’s connection with Anderson, you will be disappointed.

VIP GAME CAPSULES: Week 14

QB_Matthew_Stafford_DET_1

If Rudock gets the nod, all fantasy bets are off on the Detroit Lions wideouts. However, if Stafford, who has played through many injuries throughout his career, receives medical clearance to suit up, he would be a solid play versus a Tampa Bay Buccaneers defense that has yielded the 12th-most quarterback fantasy points.

CORNER LOCKDOWN: Week 14

RB_Gio_Bernard_CIN_1

Joe Mixon suffered a concussion in the first half of the Bengals game last Monday night and in all likelihood doubtful for Week 14. Due to this news, Giovani Bernard’s fantasy value just skyrocketed.

5 UP/5 DOWN: Week 14

RB_Jordan_Howard_CHI_1

It has been two straight weeks that we have seen Jordan Howard be bottled up and not get any solid production. Defenses are enforcing the “Rookie QB” rule and forcing Trubisky to beat them through the air and it has been effective.

CORNER LOCKDOWN: Week 13

QB Case Keenum MIN

Case Keenum was the NFC Offensive Player of the Month for November and has led Minnesota to a division lead. The Vikings travel to Atlanta this weekend in what could end up being a shootout; expect Keenum to have another strong day.

VIP GAME CAPSULES: Week 13

QB Case Keenum MIN

Did you ever think we’d see Case Keenum at the helm of an NFL offense that ranks fifth overall and eighth in scoring? However, you should lower your expectations for Keenum this week since the Atlanta Falcons defense has allowed just five touchdown passes to visiting triggermen so far this season.

LIKE/DISLIKE: Week 13

QB_Tyrod_Taylor_BUF_1

New England’s offense scores 29.5 points per game, and Buffalo’s defense allows 23.6 points. This game has all the makings of Tom Brady and company scoring early and often as Taylor plays from behind.

VIP GAME CAPSULES: Week 12

LeSean McCoy is clearly the safest start for the Bills. They should feature him heavily against a Kansas City defense that ranks just 13th in fantasy points allowed to running backs.

LIKE/DISLIKE: Week 12

RB_DeMarco_Murray_TEN_1

This is a down year for the 29-year-old veteran, but don’t count DeMarco Murray out against the Colts. Indianapolis has a respectable rushing defense at 111.3 yards per game and 10 touchdowns. Murray is averaging 3.8 yards per carry and has scored four touchdowns on the ground and one receiving.

RB_Mark_Ingram_NOS_1

Can you stop this duo? Mark Ingram looks like the Heisman winner he was at Alabama just pounding and wearing out teams between the tackles. Kamara is the Sproles factor they have missed since he left, just maybe an upgrade over Sproles.

Marqise Lee has found the end zone in two straight, and he has amassed at least four catches and 70-plus yards in four consecutive outings. Lee will draw a banged-up Jason McCourty in this one.

QB_Matt_Ryan_ATL_2

A starter since early 2011, cornerback Richard Sherman is out for the season with a ruptured Achilles tendon, meaning the Seahawks in all likelihood will have trouble guarding wide receiver Julio Jones on Monday night.

QB Case Keenum MIN

The Vikings have a fascinating situation on their hands. Keenum is playing good football and running Pat Shurmur’s offense well. Teddy Bridgewater is officially active and ready to go, but may not see the field if Keenum is still rocking it.

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.

RB_Orleans_Darkwa_NYG_1

Darkwa has established himself as the lead back for the Giants. I’m not sure if that’s a good thing or not, but he gets a good amount of volume, which is rare for running backs these days.

Coming off a very frustrating Week 9 home loss, the Seattle Seahawks, facing a challenging schedule down the stretch, really need a victory here to stay within shouting distance of the NFC West division-leading Los Angeles Rams.

Quarterback Ben Roethlisberger Pittsburgh Steelers

All signs point to wide receivers Antonio Brown and JuJu Smith-Schuster torching the Colts, as well as Le’Veon Bell out of the backfield. After throwing five interceptions against Jacksonville in Week 5, the Steelers have won three games in a row..

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.
