THE DIVE: Week 13 – A Long December

QB Mike White New York Jets

White should encore his Week 12 performance when the New York Jets visit Minnesota, who has allowed the eighth-most fantasy points to opposing quarterbacks and have been struggling mightily defensively over the last two weeks. If your quarterback is on bye or not meeting expectations, try plugging in White this weekend as a QB3 with a high ceiling but also still a wildcard.

DIARY OF A FANTASY VIRGIN: Week 13

QB Tua Tagovailoa MIA

I just needed Tua Tagovailoa to play a complete game; then there was a 30-point barrage and he stopped playing in the third quarter. This means he stays healthy but his day stops with a lead at 20 overall points. How great would another two or three drives be? I will never know.

Soccer_1

Even though winter is coming, the World Cup of Soccer is starting in November. World Cup battles bring out the craziest and epic football matches. The usual teams are favored and I will watch the United States team as always. I just never actually wrote about the World Cup during the middle of the NFL season.

Helmet_New_York_Jets_1

The AFC is trying to find a dominant team. It appeared to be the Buffalo Bills and a bunch of second tier participants like the Kansas City Chiefs and the Baltimore Ravens. Now it has been blown wide open with more teams like the N.Y. Jets, Tennessee, and Miami throwing their hat into the ring.

THE DIVE: Week 9 – The Monster Mash

RB D'Onta Foreman Carolina Panthers

When Christian McCaffrey was traded to San Francisco a couple of weeks ago from Carolina, opportunity knocked for D’Onta Foreman. Over his last two games, he has totaled 263 yards, rushed for nearly 6 yards per carry, and scored three times.

THE DIVE: Week 6 – “Running It Back”

QB Daniel Jones NYG

Daniel Jones makes up for the lack of passing yards with his legs as he has averaged almost 50 rushing yards per game. With a home game against the Baltimore defense that allows the second-most points to opposing quarterbacks, consider Jones a low-end QB2 and usable if your current starter is on bye or injured.

TE T.J. Hockenson DET

I have never been more stressed out about my fantasy football team. One of the things is that the NFL works in a pattern that flows in a strange way. A handful of new (Romeo Doubs) and emerging players (Jalen Hurts, T.J. Hockenson) combine with old standbys (Cooper Kupp, Tyreek Hill) and you have an undefeated team.

THE DIVE: Week 2 “Wide Open!”

RB James Robinson Jacksonville Jaguars

James Robinson was left on draft boards or taken as a late-round flyer in many leagues. Similar to his 2020 season, he started the season with a bang! His Achilles appeared healed as Robinson had spring in his step as he totaled 69 yards and two scores.

LB Jayon Brown TEN

So I chose the Tennessee Titans defeating the New York Giants Week 1 for my survivor pick. What can possibly go wrong? Everything went wrong and when the two-point conversion by the New York Giants happened at the end of the game as Tennessee was handed a defeat from the jaws of victory.

TRAPS & TRENDS: Week 1

QB_Aaron_Rodgers_Brett_Hundley_GBP_1

Many were wondering whether back-to-back league MVP Aaron Rodgers (22/34 for 195-0-1) could still manufacture No. 1 fantasy quarterback numbers without Davante Adams…and we got our answer. Rodgers’ fantasy outing against the Minnesota Vikings was brutal.

THE DIVE: Week 1 – The Boys are Back!

RB Antonio Gibson WAS

The unfortunate circumstances around rookie Brian Robinson’s status may give Antonio Gibson managers another opportunity and even optimism for this season. Although Gibson may lose third down work to J.D. McKissic, he should still earn the bulk of the carries early on in the season.

DIARY OF A FANTASY VIRGIN: Let the Games Begin

TE Rob Gronkowski & QB Tom Brady Tampa Bay

My draft went without a hitch for the third year in row. It came in at 41 minutes and it was snappy and quick. It does go by in the blink of an eye. How do you execute a draft? Just take the Top 200 points per reception (PPR) players from Fantasy Sharks, load them into the draft queue, and go!

THE DIVE: Week 18 – Finish Strong

Dalton Schultz has heated up recently with at least six catches in his last three games as well as two touchdowns. Dallas will visit Philadelphia, which allows the most points to opposing tight ends. Consider Schultz a surefire TE1 this weekend with a high floor.

TRAPS & TRENDS: Week 16

RB Javonte Williams DEN

Gordon and Williams, the fantasy RB17 and RB14 heading into Week 16, respectively, disappointed with their worst fantasy outings of the season. With Drew Lock subbing for the injured Teddy Bridgewater (concussion), most fantasy experts expected Denver, one of the NFL’s better running teams, to let Gordon and Williams carry the offense.
