RISERS/FALLERS: Week 3

QB Lamar Jackson BAL

Who is currently playing the best football in fantasy? Just two games in, Lamar Jackson and Patrick Mahomes are arguably the top two. Out-gunning Mahomes could see Jackson become the new king of the mountain.

LIKE/DISLIKE: Week 3

RB Austin Ekeler LAC

Ekeler is crushing it in the absence of Melvin Gordon, in fact at this point, the Chargers are probably happy he is not reporting. Ekeler and Jackson have a nice rotation going so far, that seems to be matchup proof to start the season.

FIRE & ICE: Week 3

WR_T.Y._Hilton_IND_1

Don’t get me wrong, T.Y. Hilton has been more than serviceable in his first two weeks this year logging touchdowns in each game, but he hasn’t had that signature big play we’ve become accustomed to seeing from him; failing to go over 100-yards receiving in either of the first two weeks.

5 UP/5 DOWN: Week 2

LB Darius Leonard tackles RB Joe Mixon

Through two weeks, Mixon has 17 carries for just 27 yards, and only five receptions for 17 yards, and has yet to reach the end zone. Cincinnati has road games against Buffalo and Pittsburgh coming up before returning home to host Arizona. If Mixon’s numbers don’t dramatically improve by then, you’ll want to see if you can find a trade partner.

OFFENSE: Takeaways – Week 2

RB Marlon Mack IND

FANTASY STOCK EXCHANGE: Week 3

RB Peyton Barber TBB

Peyton Barber has made it clear through his numerous attempts, that he is not a legitimate RB1, and if you are a Barber owner you should take the great numbers that he got you on Thursday, and trade it for a down-player that is for sure to have a bounce-back season.

TEAM DEFENSE: Takeaways after Week 2

LB Kyle Van Noy NEP

The landscape for defensive rankings so far have proven to be a far cry from last year. Eventually, the expected teams such as Jacksonville and Philadelphia will progress towards their normal means instead of being below average as they have ...

TRAPS & TRENDS: Week 3

QB_Cam_Newton_CAR_2

Hey! Aren’t you supposed to be the NFL’s top dual-threat quarterback? How come you didn’t carry the ball when your team needed a touchdown during the closing minutes of Thursday Night Football?

THE PROGNOSTICATOR: Week 2

WR_Julio_Jones_11_ATL_1

Atlanta is at home and an underdog? Say what now? If you want to overreact to Week 1 then sure, that makes sense, but if you understand that Atlanta has one of the very best passing attacks in the league and will be able to throw all over their stadium for chunks of yardage, then you know how silly that line is.

LIKE/DISLIKE: Week 2

Quarterback Ben Roethlisberger Pittsburgh Steelers

Roethlisberger had a rough Week 1, finishing with 276 yards with no touchdowns and an interception.. It’s no secret that Roethlisberger is better at home than on the road as he has 64 more touchdowns and 17 fewer interceptions in his career at home versus on the road. Look for a bounce-back game..

RISERS & FALLERS: Week 2

RB_Chris_Thompson_WAS_1

With the newest set back to Derrius Guice and last week's healthy scratch status of Adrian Peterson, Thompson looks like the only back with a cemented status for Washington's offense. His 7 catches for 68 yards shows that he is back for at least flex purposes.

RED ZONE: Target Analysis Week 1

RB Damien Williams KC

Week 1 is in the books and there are plenty of things to discuss after opening kickoff weekend. There is always a lot of buildup heading into the first week. Everyone is anxious to see if their offseason work and ...

2019 FANTASY STOCK EXCHANGE: Week 2

RB Marlon Mack IND

In a fantasy football league, the most valuable asset is the team owner’s ability to know when to buy players who are on the cusp of breaking out and knowing when to cut loose a player who is about to go into decline. Much like the real world stock market, making the wrong decisions sometime can lead to cataclysmic consequences.

5 UP/5 DOWN: Week 2

WR Sammy Watkins KC

It's not clear yet how much or even if Hill will miss any significant time with this injury, but even if he doesn't, it's pretty clear that the Chiefs intend to get the ball to Watkins early and often. He's no doubt rostered in your league, so to get him, you're going to have to give up something good to get him...but do it.

TRAPS & TRENDS: Week 2 Edition

QB Lamar Jackson BAL

Did the studs on your fantasy teams stink up the joint in Week 1? If that’s the case, you’re probably dealing with a case of the “Week 1 Freakouts.”  Take a deep breath and relax. Senior FantasySharks.com writer Matt Wilson ...

RED LIGHT, GREEN LIGHT: Week 1

red-light-green-light

Despite only reporting to the Cowboys earlier this week in the wake of signing a $90 million mega-extension, Elliott appears on track to be active. The stud running back may not see his usual diet of 20-25 touches if the Cowboys decide to ease him in after missing all of training camp and the preseason.

VIP GAME CAPSULES: Week 1

WR_T.Y._Hilton_IND_1

Cooper Kupp returns healthy from ACL surgery, and Todd Gurley – if you believe the Rams – is supposedly all systems go. We should once again see the version of the Los Angeles offense that outscored all teams except the Kansas City Chiefs this past season.

RED-ZONE: A Final Look at 2018

RB James White NE

Red Zone statistics can be a valuable tool if used correctly.  Obviously, the teams with better offenses will have more opportunities and we can use this data to exploit certain match-ups or identify players that could be overlooked while looking ...

5 UP/5 DOWN: Stock Watch – Week 1

RB Chris Carson SEA

Chris Carson averaged over 4.6 yards per carry in his first two seasons in the NFL and his fantasy performances last year were impressive. He finished as the RB15 for the year, but over the course of the last six weeks, he was the RB11 and won a lot of people leagues in Weeks 12-16 where he was the RB5.

FANTASY IMPACT: The Affect Of Player Movement

RB James Conner PIT

The Steelers already had to cover for the absence of Le’Veon Bell last year and knew he would not be an option for 2019. That leaves James Conner as the starter that rolled up nearly 1,500 yards and 13 touchdowns last year. But, Jaylen Samuels was also effective filling in for three games when Conner was injured.

THE LOWDOWN: Week 15

RB Dalvin Cook MIN

While Dalvin Cook hasn't been running the ball all that well since his return from injury, he's been a decent RB2/Flex play over the last three games. The Vikings' RB has average 88 scrimmage yards, five catches and 0.67 TDs per game in that span, good for an average 18.2 PPG...

NEW AGE RANKINGS: Week 15

QB_Matt_Ryan_ATL_1

Matt Ryan has been having a really solid season thus far without as much hype as guys like Drew Brees and Patrick Mahomes, but he's one of three QBs with 4,000+ yards so far (along with Mahomes and Roethlisberger) and his 28 TDs are tied for sixth in the league.

THE LOWDOWN: Week 14

Quarterback Ben Roethlisberger Pittsburgh Steelers

Oakland has given up the greatest number of fantasy points to opposing tight ends, so this might be one of those weeks where Ben Roethlisberger looks for Vance McDonald a bit more than usual.

RED ZONE TARGET ANALYSIS: Week 14

WR_Doug_Baldwin_SEA_1

Bill Parcells would say that “water always returns to its level“ whenever a player got off to a hot or slow start to the year. This is the case for Doug Baldwin. Over the last few weeks he has started to trend closer to what we expected from him at the beginning of the season.

FANTASY STOCK EXCHANGE: Week 14

QB_Russell_Wilson_SEA_1

Russell Wilson has been consistent and great all season long and shows no sign of regressing. He has great matchups for the playoffs so if there is any way you can land him before they start, do it. Trade Aaron Rodgers for him if you have him.

RED ZONE TARGET ANALYSIS: Week 13

WR Josh Reynolds LAR

Josh Reynolds leads the league in red zone targets over the last three weeks. He has averaged three opportunities and a touchdown per week. He took over for Cooper Kupp when Kupp went on Injured Reserve earlier in the year and the offense hasn’t missed a beat.

NEW AGE RANKINGS: Week 12

QB Andrew Luck IND

Lost among all the fabulous QB play this season has been Andrew Luck's comeback season. After having missed all of last season to injury, Luck has done away with lingering concerns that he'd regain his old form.

THE LOWDOWN: Week 11

RB Dalvin Cook MIN

I'm looking forward to seeing how the Vikings make use of Dalvin Cook. Coming off a bye, the Vikings' coaching staff stated this week that they had no concerns about Cook participating in full practices-- great news for fantasy owners...

NEW AGE RANKINGS: Week 11

TE_Jack_Doyle_IND_1

I’m sure 95 percent of the owners out there figured that Jack Doyle would’ve been the tight end to have in Indianapolis, but the team forgot it wasn’t Andrew Luck who had the chemistry with Doyle – it was Jacoby Brissett.

LIKE/DISLIKE: Week 11

QB_Jared_Goff_LAR_1

The progression of Jared Goff from Year 1 to Year 3 is exactly what an organization looks for in their franchise quarterback. If Baker Mayfield can evolve the way Goff has, the Cleveland organization will be in good hands for the next ten years.

FANTASY STOCK EXCHANGE: Week 11

QB_Tom_Brady_NEP_4

Sell the GOAT. It may seem I’m just performing a kamikaze on my credibility as a writer, but I firmly believe the time has come where the value that you paid for Tom Brady in your drafts (or trades) far outweighs the production you are going to see from him.
