STREAMING DEFENSES: Week 13

DE Chase Young WAS

Daniel Jones can get into trouble while under heavy duress, especially if the Giants can’t get Saquon Barkley going. This game should be a low-scoring affair with some sacks and turnovers being a possibility. These factors make for a strong case to use Washington as a streaming defense this week.

WAIVER WIRE WONDERS: Week 13

WR Isaiah McKenzie Buffalo and Safety Kyle Duggar New England

Buffalo has the depth at the wide receiver position, and Josh Allen was not afraid to spread the ball around on turkey day. McKenzie popped on Thursday, grabbing nine passes for 96 yards, one good for a touchdown. Buffalo also got him a couple rushing attempts, so the team was clearly working the hot hand in Detroit.

IDP WAIVER WIRE: Week 13

RB D'Ernest Johnson Cleveland Browns and LB Chad Muma Jacksonville Jaguars

The Jaguars made a switch at inside linebacker last week against the Ravens—after going through a prolonged funk the team swapped out 2022 first-rounder Devin Lloyd for fellow rookie Chad Muma.

Will Dameon Pierce bust out of his production slump? Will D’Andre Swift re-emerge as a fantasy asset in time for the playoffs? Can Mike White, Jordan Love and a running back nicknamed “Bam” help your team down the stretch? Senior ...

GRAB BAG: Week 13

QB Jared Goff and RB D'Andre Swift Detroit Lions

Jared Goff has an excellent two-game schedule starting in Week 13. Goff always seems to teeter around 50 percent availability, and Week 13 is no exception. He’s more available in ESPN leagues at just over 70 percent.

SHOW ME WHERE IT HURTS: Week 12 Injury Fallout

QB_Aaron_Rodgers_Brett_Hundley_GBP_1

On the Packers' first offensive drive of the second half in their Sunday night loss to the Eagles, Rodgers was sandwiched by multiple defenders on a sack, and appeared visibly shaken up. Rodgers remained in the contest, but appeared to be laboring through his throws, and eventually headed to the Packers' locker room at the beginning of the fourth quarter.

DFS STACK ATTACK: Week 12

Seattle Seahawks Helmet

Las Vegas provides an incredibly soft matchup. They field one of the worst pass defenses in the league, which bodes well for Geno Smith. He has been a great fantasy asset and his DFS salary is very affordable. Smith should easily return value and should be a top consideration for stacking purposes.

STREAMING DEFENSES: Week 12

Helmet_Denver_Broncos_1

Carolina has switched to Sam Darnold at quarterback, which is a positive for almost any defense he is facing with how much time he has had off. Darnold should be live for interceptions and sacks against the Broncos. Denver is a great streaming option at defense this week.

WAIVER WIRE WONDERS: Week 12

RB Samaje Perine Cincinnati Bengals & LB Robert Spillane Pittsburgh Steelers

Keep an eye on the status of Joe Mixon, who left last week’s contest with a concussion. Samaje Perine is not likely to light the world on fire on the ground, but his involvement in the passing game alone is worth hitching your fantasy wagon to.

IDP WAIVER WIRE: Week 12

QB Lamar Jackson Baltimore Ravens

Last week against the Bills, Owusu-Koramoah saw his first game action since injuring his knee back in Week 7, piling up a season-high 12 total tackles while leading all Cleveland linebackers with a 95 percent snap share.

TRAPS & TRENDS: Week 11

RB David Montgomery CHI

Have the Tennessee Titans finally put together an effective passing attack? Is David Montgomery operating as a workhorse ball carrier again? Who are the two new starting tailbacks and will you find them on the waiver wire? Is it time ...

GRAB BAG: Week 12

QB Matt Ryan Indianapolis Colts

Facing off against Philadelphia’s substantial defense, Matt Ryan had some struggles with no touchdowns but also didn’t throw an interception. After a very good output the week prior, there’s plenty of promise going forward for the quarterback of a team still playing for a divisional crown.

WAIVER WIRE WONDERS: Week 11

RB Isaiah Pacheco Kansas City Chiefs and LB Isaiah Simmons Arizona Cardinals

Kansas City continues to move away from Clyde Edwards-Helaire, using Pacheco as the near exclusive ball carrier. Edwards-Helaire was once again nowhere to be seen in the stat sheet, with Pacheco rushing 16 times for 82 yards against Jacksonville.

IDP WAIVER WIRE: Week 11

RB Derrick Henry Tennessee Titans and LB Jayon Brown Las Vegas Raiders

Jayon Brown’s first season with the Las Vegas Raiders has been quite the ride — he opened the season as a starter, got hurt, was a healthy scratch in multiple games and has now been pushed right back into the lineup by the Deablo injury and Martinez’s retirement.

DIARY OF A FANTASY VIRGIN: Week 11

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.

TRAPS & TRENDS: Week 10

RB Christian McCaffrey San Franscisco and LB Khalil Mack LA Chargers

Have Christian McCaffrey and Leonard Fournette morphed into committee running backs? Can you trust Kadarius Toney? Is there finally a fantasy relevant Houston Texans wide receiver not named Brandin Cooks? Senior columnist Matt Wilson answers those questions and sifts through ...

GRAB BAG: Week 11

QB Matt Ryan Indianapolis Colts

Ryan returned to action by completing 21-of-28 passes for 222 yards and a touchdown. Due to being benched for two weeks, Ryan is widely available. He can be found on the waiver wire of nearly 90 percent of fantasy leagues.

STREAMING DEFENSES: Week 10

Helmet_Denver_Broncos_1

Denver travels to Tennessee this week. There is a chance this unit was dropped due to the bye week. Tennessee is fairly one-dimensional on offense and struggles to push the ball downfield. Denver has a solid fantasy floor as a result, as well as a fair amount of upside.

WAIVER WIRE WONDERS: Week 10

TE Cole Kmet Chicago Bears

The touchdowns are rolling in for the Chicago tight end, as Kmet added two scores this weekend against Miami. That gives him three in the last two games, which is huge for a tight end in this climate. With a date with Detroit looming, Kmet is worth considering as a grab and play this upcoming week.

IDP WAIVER WIRE: Week 10

Jacksonville Jaguars running back Travis Etienne Jr. (1) is tackled by Las Vegas Raiders safety Duron Harmon (30) and linebacker Blake Martinez (54)

Blake Martinez's merits as an NFL player may be the subject of some debate, but what isn't is that when the snaps have been there for Martinez in the past, he has been a highly productive IDP option.

DIARY OF A FANTASY VIRGIN: Week 10

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.

TRAPS & TRENDS: Week 9

QB Justin Fields Chicago Bears

With the Bears using Fields on more designed runs during the last month, he has notched a rushing score in three straight contests and rushed for 80-plus yards in three of his last four, which gives the second-year pro a higher and more solid fantasy floor.

Read More »

GRAB BAG: Week 10

QB Daniel Jones NYG

In the majority of leagues, Jones is still more than 50 percent unrostered. Quarterbacks with rushing upside typically provide a safe floor, making the Giants signal caller a potential Top-10 play this week.

FANTASY STOCK EXCHANGE: Week 9

WR Zach Pascal Indianapolis and LB Nick Vigil Minnesota

Zach Pascal seems to be Sam Ehlinger's new favorite target. He only caught 2 passes last week, but seeing that one of them was a touchdown, he should be getting more looks in the future and for such a low price, it makes sense to take flier on him, especially in dynasty leagues.

STREAMING DEFENSES: Week 9

Helmet_Atlanta_Falcons_1

Atlanta hosts the Los Angeles Chargers this Sunday in an interesting matchup. The Chargers are coming back from the bye week, still railing from a multitude of injuries. Atlanta's defense is bad by the stats, but it has been fantasy viable. That is mostly from its ability to generate turnovers. Its pressure rate has improved in recent weeks as well, which bodes well against a weak Chargers offensive line.

WAIVER WIRE WONDERS: Week 9

WR Rondale Moore Arizona

This past week against Minnesota Rondale Moore returned to top form, hauling in seven passes for 92 yards and a touchdown. Arizona also gave him the opportunity to run, so the team clearly wants to get the ball into his hands as much as possible. Look for him to continue to be a consistent and productive fantasy player going forward.

IDP WAIVER WIRE: Week 9

RB Dontrell Hilliard Tennessee Titans and LB Christian Harris Houston Texans

Things sped up fast for Houston rookie linebacker Christian Harris. In the span of less than a fortnight, Harris went from making his NFL debut in a rotational role to being a full-time starter after Houston parted ways with veteran Kamu Grugier-Hill.

GRAB BAG: Week 9

QB Justin Fields Chicago Bears

There were some really rough weeks to start the season for Justin Fields but in recent games, he seems to be adjusting well as a passer and a scrambler. Fields and the Bears host the Dolphins in Week 9 for a very positive matchup to fantasy quarterbacks. His running ability gives him a high floor that will be highly sought after this week.

STEAMING DEFENSES: Week 8

LA Rams Helmet

Despite their shortcomings in pass coverage, they are still able to pressure opposing quarterbacks. This is mostly due to Aaron Donald, who can take over games and bully offensive lines. San Francisco quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo is no stranger to taking sacks or turning over the football. Los Angeles is a solid streaming option with some good upside as well.

WAIVER WIRE WONDERS: Week 8

RB Gus Edwards BAL DT Geno Atkins CIN

When opportunity knocks, you often have just one chance to answer the door and Kenyan Drake did not hear the doorbell ring. For those that were able to jump on Kenyan Drake last week, he is worth holding onto, but for now the Ravens will run the ball with Gus Edwards.

IDP WAIVER WIRE: Week 8

QB Lamar Jackson Baltimore Ravens

There have been flashes, but there has also been plenty of “JOK” getting swallowed up at the point of attack — so much so that not that long ago many expected Owusu-Koramoah to lose playing time to Deion Jones and he was let go in some IDP leagues.

Read More »

FANTASY STOCK EXCHANGE: Week 8

QB Zach Wilson NYJ

For the first time this year, I am putting the same player here two weeks in a row. I don’t know why, but Wilson’s rostered percentage went lower! This is crazy. With Breece Hall now out for the season, Wilson is going to have to air it out more and this could turn into more points for you!

GRAB BAG: WEEK 8

RB Gus Edwards BAL

In his 2022 debut, Gus Edwards led Baltimore in carries and rushing yards while also scoring twice against Cleveland. With J.K Dobbins on the sidelines for the next few weeks, Edwards is in line to get the majority of attempts out of the Baltimore backfield.

STREAMING DEFENSES: Week 7

New England Patriots

New England’s defense has been playing well as of late, holding Cleveland to 15 points last weekend and shutting out the Detroit Lions before that. Another successful defensive outing is in store against Chicago, who has one of the worst offenses in the league and barely passes the ball during games.
