DRAFT DAY: Six Players to Target

RB Raheem Mostert SF

The absence of Jeff Wilson Jr. will give Mostert more chances with the ball throughout the first couple months of the year. After that, third-round pick Trey Sermon and the inevitable return of Wilson could easily cut into carries and targets.

FANTASY FLEX: Week 13

WR_A_J_Green_CIN_1

At least Joe Burrow threw the ball at least 40 times each game. He also did it with good accuracy which racked up receptions for all three receivers. Now, it is looking like a worse version of the Arizona receivers from last year.

THE GREY REPORT: Week 12

LB K.J. Wright SEA & RB Ezekiel Elliott DAL

Can Ezekiel Elliott and Dallas keep it going and deliver some Thanksgiving magic? Can Tampa Bay slow down Patrick Mahomes and the Kansas City high-powered offense? David Grey will breakdown all the matchups in this week’s “Grey Report,” because, “not all ...

FANTASY STOCK EXCHANGE: Week 12

QB Jared Goff LA-Rams

One quarterback I’ve been wanting to get, after watching him tear apart a good Tampa Bay defense is Jared Goff. He’s averaging 17 points a game and gets to face pretty soft defenses like New England and the New York Jets in the fantasy playoffs.

FANTASY IMPACT: Week 12

RB Kenyan Drake ARI & Landon Collins WAS

Kenyan Drake is working his way into starting territory again. Week 11 against Seattle was the first time he had more than 2 catches or even double-digit receiving yards this year. His usage and production are looking up.

LIKE/DISLIKE: Week 11

QB Justin Herbert LA Chargers

Although he failed to break 200 passing yards last week, Justin Herbert gets a nice bounce-back matchup this week against the New York Jets. Herbert, who appears to be the front runner for Offensive Rookie of the Year, has at least two touchdowns in each game since Week 4.

THE GREY REPORT: Week 11

QB Russell Wilson SEA & DE Sam Hubbard CIN

Can Russell Wilson and Seattle bounce out of a recent funk or will Arizona keep Seattle in check? Will Ben Roethlisberger and Pittsburgh keep rolling? David Grey will breakdown all the matchups in this week’s “Grey Report,” because, “not all matchups are ...

FANTASY STOCK EXCHANGE: Week 11

WR Michael Thomas and QB Drew Brees NO

Michael Thomas has been injured the whole year and put up a paltry 27 yards last week. AND then Drew Brees got hurt. I find it hard to believe that any Michael Thomas owner is not nervous as heck right now. Take advantage of that.

THE PROGNOSTICATOR: Week 10

WR_Julian_Edelman_NEP_2

Say it with me.. this is a transition year for New England, it'll be OK, you'll get through it. New England wants to do one thing and that's run the ball or die trying. The only difference between Baltimore and New England in this game is that Baltimore is actually really good at it.

LIKE/DISLIKE: Week 10

RB Nick Chubb CLE

Nick Chubb has been practicing all week and gets a juicy matchup as he returns from IR this week. The Texans have allowed the most rushing yards in the league, and have given up ten touchdowns, which is the second most. You should feel confident plugging Chubb back into your lineup.

KEEPING AHEAD: Let’s Get Ethical

RB Darrell Henderson LA Rams

Admit it, you kind of forgot about him, didn’t you? It’s OK, he doesn’t know you did, but you can tell me. Darrell Henderson left early in the Week 8 contest against Miami with what would later be diagnosed as a quad injury, and with the bye last week, he may have become lost in the shuffle of the last couple weeks.

FANTASY IMPACT: Week 10

WR Brandon Aiyuk SF

Brandon Aiyuk has seen fairly consistent usage this year overall. The last two weeks he has had 115 and 91 yards receiving on seven and 10 targets, respectively, ranked 10th in fantasy points over those two weeks at the position.

FANTASY STOCK EXCHANGE: Week 10

QB_Carson_Wentz_PHI_1

Wentz has the New York Giants, Cleveland and Seattle, who have all atrocious passing defenses and he ALSO has Green Bay and New Orleans, which will force the Eagles into garbage time and have to throw a lot. Buy him now before he starts racking up the points.

KEEPING AHEAD: Late-Season Scenarios

RB Dalvin Cook MIN and LB Adarius Taylor TB

… you need to be looking ahead at schedules, handcuffs and replacements. Yes, your players have gotten you to this point and for that you can congratulate and celebrate them. But what good does Dalvin Cook’s Week 8 performance do for you if he is … gasp … injured a week before they begin?

FANTASY IMPACT: Week 9

RB Leonard Fournette & QB Tom Brady, Tampa Bay

In terms of snap count percentage, there are a few notable changes. The biggest surprise is that Leonard Fournette had a snap percentage of 73 percent compared to Ronald Jones’ 24 percent. It was a 56 percent-43 percent last week so Fournette is clearly taking over the leading running back role.

FANTASY STOCK EXCHANGE: Week 9

RB Austin Ekeler LAC

The Chargers are a legit team now and once their starting running back is back, you can best believe they are going to be firing on all cylinders. Because he’s still a week or two from returning, you should be able to get Austin Ekeler for a steal.

LIKE/DISLIKE: Week 8

QB_Carson_Wentz_PHI_1

Carson Wentz has lost many of his weapons this season but continues to produce; he’s thrown for touchdowns in all but one game this year and had his first 300-yard game a week ago. The Cowboys have allowed 15 passing touchdowns on the year; Wentz makes a great streamer if you need one this week.

KEEPER STOCK WATCH: Week 8

WR_Antonio_Brown_OAK_2

Why not Antonio Brown? Great situation, still (in theory) able to produce and should cost you absolutely nothing to acquire right now and hold onto. If he is still available, absolutely take a chance and cross your fingers he doesn’t screw up.

FANTASY STOCK EXCHANGE: Week 8

WR Terry McLaurin WAS & CB Byron Jones DAL

I don’t know how “low” you will be able to get Terry McLaurin for, but whatever the price is, it’s probably worth it. It seems like McLaurin is going to be Kyle Allen’s favorite target, and Allen looks like he wants to throw A LOT.

FANTASY IMPACT: Week 8

QB Daniel Jones NYG

Daniel Jones is the perfect end-of-season quarterback with matchups against Cincinnati, Seattle, Arizona and Cleveland. Last year from Weeks 8-16 he was No. 5 in points per game in quarterbacks who played at least three games.

LIKE/DISLIKE: Week 7

RB James Conner PIT

Minus week one, where he exited early, Conner has been as steady as they come this year. He has over 100-yards in three of his last four games and has scored in each game during that span. This week he gets a matchup with the Titans, who allow 112.4 rushing yards per game.

FANTASY IMPACT: Week 7

WR Christian Kirk ARI & CB Casey Hayward LAC

Christian Kirk has completed his coming out party. While Kyler Murray completed only nine passes, two went to Kirk who had 86 yards and two touchdowns. Kirk had an 81% snap percentage in Week 6 - 20% higher than most other weeks this year.

KEEPER STOCK WATCH: Week 7

WR Tee Higgins CIN

Believe it or not, as much as I have poo-pooed (official fantasy terminology) A.J. Green’s performance this year, I think his week 6 breakout is a good thing for Higgins moving forward. There is no doubt that Joe Burrow has a connection with Higgins and the more defenses can move away from Higgins, the better.

FANTASY STOCK EXCHANGE: Week 7

WR JuJu Smith-Schuster PIT

Chase Claypool is making all the plays lately, so much that Smith-Schuster was held to under 2 fantasy points this week, so if there was ever a time to make a low-ball offer on a player that is OBVIOUSLY going to bounce back at some point - it's now.

LIKE/DISLIKE: Week 6

Quarterback Ben Roethlisberger Pittsburgh Steelers

Big Ben has been on fire since starting his comeback tour this year. He’s thrown for at least two scores in all four games and has just one interception. This week the Steelers take on a divisional foe in the Cleveland Browns that have allowed the 3rd most touchdowns to quarterbacks.

KEEPING AHEAD: High Fives with MJ

WR Henry Ruggs Las Vegas

The mess just keeps coming. Dak Prescott out. Le’veon cut. A.J. Green quit. More positive tests shutting down facilities – currently the Atlanta Falcons (and their opponent, the Vikings) are the latest potential COVID-impacted teams. Like I said, it’s a ...

KEEPER STOCK WATCH: Week 6

WR Darius Slayton, NYG

The Giants have the perfect recipe for fantasy success for a wideout – their defense is horrid, they have no running game, the competing wideouts are not good, but just good enough to warrant some coverage by opposing defenses, and, while it can be argued this isn’t wonderful, Daniel Jones loves to throw to him.

FANTASY STOCK EXCHANGE: Week 6

RB Kenyan Drake ARI & Landon Collins WAS

Kenyan Drake has been seeing double-digit carries in all of the games he has played and he is seeing over 50% of his teams carries in the red zone. So the opportunities are there, he just needs to be able to make the play.

FANTASY IMPACT: Week 6

TE Gerald Everett LA Rams

Tyler Higbee (TE 9) is the biggest sell candidate of any player now. He is clearly losing his job to Gerald Everett. Higbee was a star out of necessity last year with injuries to Everett and Cooper Kupp.

TRAPS & TRENDS: Week 5

WR_A_J_Green_CIN_1

With his skills declining at age 32, I suspect that A.J. Green knows the team is phasing him out of the offense. I also suspect he’ll have the world’s slowest healing hamstring. Dump Green and get another player with some value before it’s too late.
