John_Georgopoulos

Welcome to The Lowdown for Week 11. This is my little corner of the fantasy football universe — feel free to pull up a chair and stay a while! Is it Sunday? I’m not going to lie. It’s been a ...

VIP GAME CAPSULES: Week 11

WR_Marqise_Lee_JAC_1

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.

5 UP/5 DOWN: Week 11

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.

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.

CORNER LOCKDOWN: Week 10

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.

VIP GAME CAPSULES: Week 10

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.

LIKE/DISLIKE: Week 10

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..

5 UP/5 DOWN: Week 10

RB_Matt_Forte_NYJ_1

The Jets identified themselves as a running team on Thursday night with the dual headed monster of Forte and Powell. Forte had two touchdowns and could see similar pay dirt next week against the weak Tampa Bay defense.

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.

LIKE/DISLIKE: Week 9

QB_Jared_Goff_LAR_1

The second-year signal-caller is a great streaming option who, coming off a bye, scored the 12th-most fantasy points among quarterbacks headed into Week 8.. the Giants are probably going to lose badly as Goff lights up the scoreboard and stat sheet.

5 UP/5 DOWN: Week 9

WR_Robby_Anderson_NYJ_1

The Jets have a passing game worth taking note of and Anderson is the deep threat in their attack. If you need a flex player to have on your roster that has big play upside, Robby Anderson may be your guy.

CORNER LOCKDOWN: Week 8

RB_Jay_Ajayi_MIA_1

Nearing the halfway point of the season, Ajayi has been one of the bigger busts in fantasy this year. He still hasn’t found the end zone and is only averaging 3.5 yards per carry. Sure he has a couple 100-yard rushing games, but he just doesn’t look good doing it.

LIKE/DISLIKE: Week 8

QB_Matt_Ryan_ATL_1

Matt Ryan, the 2016 Offensive Player of the Year has been closer to a fantasy owner’s 2017 Least Valuable Player. Offensive coordinator Steve Sarkisian hasn’t recaptured the high-powered machine Kyle Shanahan led the past two years.

5 UP/5 DOWN: Week 8

QB_Andrew_Luck_IND_1

The offensive line for the Indianapolis Colts will be the reason that Andrew Luck will not play this season. Are you going to put him behind an offensive line that gave up 10 sacks in a game?! Teams around the league have to be foaming at the mouth to face the offensive line of the Colts.

CORNER LOCKDOWN: Week 7

RB Orleans Darkwa NYG

After last week, it looks like Darkwa has solidified himself as the starting back for the Giants. Not only did he get a whopping 22 touches, but he turned those touches into 130 total yards.

LIKE/DISLIKE: Week 7

WR_Dez_Bryant_DAL_1

This once simple decision is no longer a no-brainier. Bryant is a big-name player who isn’t producing up to his superstar status. But if there was ever an opportunity to regain what he once was, the winless 49ers are a good landing spot.

CONSISTENCY PLUS: Week 6

TE_Zach_Ertz_PHI_1

The tight end group has been disappointing in general thus far, but Zach Ertz has bucked that perception. The Eagles' tight end has been perched at #1 every week I've run these rankings, boasting the top scoring and consistency figures.

CORNER LOCKDOWN: Week 6

RB_C.J._Anderson_DEN_1

C.J. Anderson now gets a dream matchup on Sunday against a Giants team that doesn’t look like they even want to be on the field. He’s coming off his bye so he should be well rested and ready to handle 20 plus touches.

LIKE/DISLIKE: Week 6

WR_Philip_Rivers_SDC_1

Who wears a bolo tie to postgame press conferences, has seven kids and trash talks with a Southern twang without cursing? The same guy who’s about to pick apart Oakland’s No. 15 passing defense.

5 UP/5 DOWN: Week 6

QB_Eli_Manning_NYG_1

Now Eli Manning only has Sterling Shepard (who was hurt along with Brandon Marshall) and rookie Evan Engram as reliable receivers in the offense. Trade him if you can, or think about finding another quarterback.

CORNER LOCKDOWN: Week 5

RB_Thomas_Rawls_SEA_2

Rawls is the definition of a sleeper right now because we don’t really know what kind of work load to expect out of him. Starting running back Chris Carson is lost for the season so Rawls and Eddie Lacy are going to handle the backfield duties for now.

CONSISTENCY PLUS: Week 5

WR Jordy Nelson GBP

To be the top-scoring PPR wide receiver is pretty impressive, but to be the top-scoring wide receiver is even more impressive when you're also among the NFL's most consistent receivers... cue Jordy Nelson.

LIKE/DISLIKE: Week 5

QB_Jameis_Winston_TBB_1

Under normal circumstances, supporting a quarterback who threw three interceptions in a game two weeks ago would not seem wise. Fortunately for Winston owners, he gets the league's last-ranked defense in the New England Patriots on Thursday night.

5 UP/5 DOWN: Week 5

Quarterback Ben Roethlisberger Pittsburgh Steelers

If you have watched him play this year, he just looks off. He hasn’t passed for over 300 yards yet this season and doesn’t seem to have the ability to be consistent. Is it old age? The wear and tear of his years starting to catch up?

DB_Brandon_Carr_DAL_WR_Stefon_Diggs_MIN_1

OK. I’m the first to admit this hasn’t been a good week for me… it started when I was suddenly and unexpectedly got called to Kansas City for business. You know what’s great about spending two unplanned days in KC? ...

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.

CORNER LOCKDOWN: Week 4

RB_Wendell_Smallwood_PHI_2

LeGarrette Blount is still in the mix and is the goal line back, but Smallwood looks to be the one to own in fantasy. He turned 14 touches into 80 yards in Week 3 and has an OK matchup against the Chargers on Sunday.

Predicting player performances is possible to an extent. I’ve been right about several evaluations and wrong on others. The same results will likely happen in Week 4. Considering the following advice may be a good start – and when someone ...

CORNER LOCKDOWN: Week 3

QB Jay Cutler MIA

With a game under his belt, look for Cutler to start throwing down the field more to his talented receivers. The New York Jets defense has already allowed five touchdown passes in the first two games of the season so look for Cutler to have a big day.

LIKE/DISLIKE: Week 3

RB_Isaiah_Crowell_CLE_1

Twenty years ago, Detroit Lions back Barry Sanders had 53 yards through two games before gaining 100 yards or more in 14 straight games to finish the season with 2,053 yards. Crowell’s talent isn’t comparable to one of the greatest players of all time, but a slow start doesn’t mean his production is doomed.

5 UP/5 DOWN: Week 3

QB_Carson_Palmer_ARI_1

The offense really struggled against the Colts’ young secondary and there is concern that we are starting to see the decline of Palmer. He did however, make solid decisions throughout the game but had just one touchdown thanks to J.J. Nelson beating a young secondary. He can't be trusted as a decent QB2 option any longer.

CORNER LOCKDOWN: Week 2

TE_Eric_Ebron_DET_1

Ebron had a quiet opening week of the season, but he was hurt in the preseason so he should start getting more targets. He faces a New York Giants defense that got torched by Jason Witten last week so look for Detroit to get Ebron involved a lot more than his two-catch performance in Week 1.

LIKE/DISLIKE: Week 2

WR Jarvis Landry MIA

Having Week 1 off due to a catastrophic hurricane will help the chemistry between Landry and quarterback Jay Cutler. That extra practice gives them time to exploit a Chargers passing defense that was 12th-worst last season at 263.6 yards and 1.3 touchdowns per game.
