TRAPS & TRENDS: Week 6

TE Rob Gronkowski & QB Tom Brady Tampa Bay

Did Rob Gronkowski re-emerge as a legit fantasy option during an NFL weekend that featured 14 tight end touchdowns? FantasySharks.com senior writer Matt Wilson answers that question and kicks the tires on the fantasy prospects of four other tight ends ...

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.

THE GREY REPORT: Week 6

RB Aaron Jones and QB Aaron Rodgers Green Bay Packers

Can Aaron Jones and Green Bay stay hot coming out of its bye? Will Patrick Mahomes and Kansas City bounce back from a disappointing Week 5? David Grey will breakdown all the matchups in this week’s “Grey Report,” because, “not all ...

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.

LIKE/DISLIKE: Week 5

QB Teddy Bridgewater CAR

Teddy Bridgewater has thrown six touchdown passes on the year and has at least one in all but one game thus far. He has plenty of weapons at his disposal and should provide a solid return if you are looking for a bye-week fill-in this week.

FANTASY IMPACT: Week 5

RB Joe Mixon CIN

Joe Mixon is the player with the most unknowns moving forward but this is also the best opportunity to sell high. He plays Baltimore and Indianapolis the next two weeks which will drag down his value.

THE GREY REPORT: Week 5

QB Josh Allen BUF

Can Josh Allen and the Buffalo offense continue to prove the doubters wrong? Will Calvin Ridley lay another goose egg and burn fantasy owners once again? David Grey will breakdown all the matchups in this week’s “Grey Report,” because, “not all ...

KEEPER STOCK WATCH: Week 5

RB James Robinson Jacksonville Jaguars

COVID running all over the NFL, but the rookies don’t care! Remember – these are players who your keeper/dynasty teams should absolutely be prioritizing for immediate use and future production in the coming years. Let’s get going. James Robinson – ...

TRAPS & TRENDS: Week 4

LB Darius Leonard tackles RB Joe Mixon

Mixon is the first Cincinnati player to rack up two rushing touchdowns and a receiving touchdown in a game since Corey Dillon did it during the 2001 season. Heading into Week 4 action, Mixon topped a lot of fantasy analysts’ sell or must-trade lists. Following his massive outing, should fantasy managers opt to hold onto this guy?

FANTASY IMPACT: Week 4

LB Darius Leonard tackles RB Joe Mixon

Mixon is worrisome as he is averaging 3.2 yards per carry against questionable defenses. He only has faced a stacked box on 7.7 percent of his carries. If you can sell him at 3rd round player value, go for it.

THE GREY REPORT: Week 4

QB Lamar Jackson BAL

Can Deshaun Watson and the Houston offense find the jumper cables and get started? Will Lamar Jackson put that Week 3 stinker in the rear view mirror and bounce back against the Washington? David Grey will breakdown all the matchups ...

FANTASY STOCK EXCHANGE: Week 4

QB Deshaun Watson HOU

Deshaun Watson is scoring around the 16th most among QBs, and I think everyone knows that he is better then that. The schedule makers at the NFL really did a number on Watson making him face the Chiefs, Ravens, and Steelers defenses in the first 3 weeks, so a frantic Watson owner might be giving up on him.

KEEPER STOCK WATCH: Week 4

RB James Robinson Jacksonville Jaguars

I’m going to try not to mince words here. James Robinson is the keeper target of the year so far. This is James Conner, David Johnson, Alvin Kamara – the player that no one knows, that was drafted super late or not at all, that will become a keeper top-15 running back for years to come.

RISERS & FALLERS: Week 3

QB Joe Burrow CIN

Sixty-one passing attempts? The way he moved away from the pass rush and back into the pocket? The way he overcame several drops and miscommunications with his primary receivers? The way he dealt with the loss of Ozumah? Kid is a boss.

LIKE/DISLIKE: Week 3

QB Ryan Tannehill TEN

Through two weeks, Ryan Tannehill seems to have picked up right where he left off last season; through his first two games, he has thrown for 488 yards and six touchdowns. This week, he faces the sixth-worst team against the quarterback position in the Vikings.

THE GREY REPORT: Week 3

QB Gardner Minshew JAC

Can Gardner Minshew keep the magic going and help light up the fantasy scoreboard? Can Patrick Mahomes and the Kansas City offense bounce back and keep up with Lamar Jackson and the Baltimore offense? David Grey will breakdown all the ...

KEEPING AHEAD: Trade Season Tips

RB Myles Gaskin MIA

Given the amount I write about Florida teams in these articles (see Laviska Shenault, James Robinson, Preston Williams, and the demise of Ronald Jones) you would think I bought a big honkin’ Cadillac, put on some aqua-colored polyester pants, and moved into a planned community these days.

FANTASY IMPACT: Week 3

RB David Johnson and QB Deshaun Watson Houston Texans

David Johnson disappointed many this week and he will again in his Week 3 based on his difficult matchup with Pittsburgh. He did however, lead all running backs this week with a 95% snap percentage.

FANTASY STOCK EXCHANGE: Week 3

QB_Carson_Wentz_PHI_1

Philadelphia stinks. And no that’s not just the Dallas fan in me. Its defense is atrocious, and the offensive line has been getting injuries which allow for no winnable offense to operate in. BUT from a fantasy perspective, that presents us an interesting opportunity.

THE GREY REPORT: Week 2

QB Kyler Murray ARI

Can Kyler Murray keep the good times rolling and take the next step to fantasy stardom? Will Tom Brady and Tampa Bay bounce back and prove the investment in Brady was worthwhile? David Grey will breakdown all the matchups in ...

LIKE/DISLIKE: Week 2

RB David Montgomery CHI

We weren’t too sure how the Chicago backfield would be split heading into this season, but after one game, David Montgomery played on 44.6 percent of plays compared to Tarik Cohen's 23.3 percent. Montgomery will be in for a busy day.

FANTASY STOCK EXCHANGE: Week 2

TE T.J. Hockenson DET

Déjà vu anyone? Last year, Hockenson set fantasy leagues on fire with an amazing Week 1 and then became a dud for the rest of the season. He’s not going to fool me again. He was the beneficiary of an extra amount of targets due to Kenny Golladay being out, but Golladay could be back as early as next week.

FANTASY IMPACT: Week 1

WR John Brown BUF

Stefon Diggs and John Brown led the league in receiving snaps for the week (56, 54) though it was against maybe the worst pass defense in the league, Brown is one of the biggest buy low candidates this week.

TRAPS & TRENDS: Week 2

QB_Aaron_Rodgers_GBP_1

Did the studs on your fantasy teams decide to take Week 1 off? If that’s the case, you’re probably dealing with a nasty case of the “Week 1 Freakouts.” If you’re in a guillotine league, you’re probably feeling extra nervous ...

LIKE/DISLIKE: Week 1

Quarterback Ben Roethlisberger Pittsburgh Steelers

Big Ben played in just two games last season, but is back at full strength for this year and is ready to go. He gets a matchup with a Giants team this week that gave up the fifth-most passing yards and eighth most touchdowns to opposing quarterbacks last year.

KEEPING AHEAD: Keeper League Prospecting in 2020

WR Darius Slayton, NYG

In his final seven games as a rookie, Slayton absolutely exploded, nabbing 31 catches for 467 yards and five touchdowns. These are hard numbers to ignore, and left simply with that, and the budding relationship with Daniel Jones, and you have enough of a reason to invest in him long term.

5 Up/5 Down

QB Ryan Tannehill TEN

Since the AFL/NFL merger, only 14 quarterbacks have produced seasons in which they averaged greater than 9 yards per pass attempt on 200 or more throws. Tannehill is very likely to become No. 15.

RED ZONE: Target Analysis – Week 13

RB Aaron Jones and QB Aaron Rodgers Green Bay Packers

Aaron Jones did appear to get into the end-zone on the first play of the fourth quarter as he bounced it outside, however a holding call against the offense would negate the score. He got another chance late in the fourth and was stood up at the 1-yard line.

5 UP/5 DOWN: Week 13

QB Sam Darnold NYJ

Darnold’s early season numbers were very inconsistent, but since returning after a four-week absence for illness related reasons, the former USC Trojan has been getting steadily better week by week. He has put himself at the very top of the quarterback streaming list with upcoming games at Cincinnati and at home against Miami.
