THE LOWDOWN: Week 14

QB Kirk Cousins MIN

I know everyone is aware of this, but I think it's amazing how much Kirk Cousins turned his season around since being called out by WR Adam Thielen in Week 4. Since being run down by his wideout, Cousins has tossed 20 TDs to just two interceptions. That's amazing...

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.

WAIVER WIRE WONDERS: Week 14

RB Darwin Thompson KC

The backs for Kansas City are dropping like flies, with Damien Williams and Darrel Williams both dealing with injuries that may affect their availability for this week’s tilt in New England. Darwin Thompson saw his first significant action of the year, and among his 11 carries was a 4-yard play that got him his first touchdown.

IDP WAIVER WIRE: Week 14

LB Sean Lee DAL

Sean Lee has been a lot more than just a cheerleader or a fill-in over the past few weeks — he had 12 tackles (nine solo) in last week’s loss to Buffalo and already has almost twice as many tackles as all of last year.

STREAMING DEFENSES: Week 14

LB Darron Lee NYJ

Streaming the Jets simply means you are banking on a bad game from Ryan Fitzpatrick. Granted, Fitzpatrick just lit up the Eagles defense last Sunday but that success is not sustainable, especially traveling to frigid New York.

ON SECOND THOUGHT: Week 14

RB Raheem Mostert SF

In San Francisco, Raheem Mostert has been turning some heads. The super quick RB is available in 86% of leagues. I have mentioned him a few weeks in a row now and he still is on most your waiver wires.

GRAB BAG: Week 14

QB_Andy_Dalton_CIN_1

With the Ryan Finley experiment coming to an end, Dalton started Week 13 and led the Bengals to their first win of the season. We should expect Cincinnati to continue to play from behind - which means more passing for Dalton. He's an easier find as he is unrostered in over 90% of leagues.

THE LOWDOWN: Week 13

QB Lamar Jackson BAL

I have seen the future of professional football, and it’s Lamar Jackson. Is this really all that of an outrageous statement? After watching Jackson over the past few weeks, it’s obvious that he’ll be the model quarterback for future generations.

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.

THE GREY REPORT: Week 13

QB Lamar Jackson BAL

Can the 49ers elite defense slow down Lamar Jackson and the Ravens offense? Will the Falcons shutdown Drew Brees and the Saints in their re-match? David Grey will breakdown all the match-ups in this week’s Grey Report, Because Not All ...

THE PROGNOSTICATOR: Week 13

Thanksgiving Game Cleveland Browns

It's Battle Royale II but this time it's in Pittsburgh. Cleveland is still reeling from the players they lost in the last fracas and this is going to turn into another very physical game with a lot of penalty flags being thrown. Expect both coaches to fan the flames in an effort to keep their teams motivated.

LIKE/DISLIKE: Week 13

QB_Jared_Goff_LAR_1

Goff has been bad the last three games there’s no denying that... This week is a strong bounce-back opportunity against a weak Cardinal defense coming off a bye week. It’s been five weeks since the Cards have held an opponent under 300-passing yards.

RED ZONE: Target Analysis – Week12

DB Janoris Jenkins NYG

Late in the third quarter with just under three minutes left, Fournette kept the drive alive on a 4th&2 from the Titan 10-yard line. He made a catch on a screen pass and was tackled at the one and proceed to punch it in on the next play. Fournette would then get three cracks at breaking the plane again late in the fourth quarter.

WAIVER WIRE WONDERS: Week 13

RB Benny Snell PIT

With James Conner on the sidelines, it was Snell and not Jaylen Samuels who led Pittsburgh in rushing. Reports are that Conner will not be ready to return this week, and if that is the case then Snell will be ready to roll as the Pittsburgh workhorse. Giddy-up!

IDP WAIVER WIRE: Week 13

Lamar Jackson & Derwin James

It’s by no means certain that Derwin James will play in Week 13. And even if he does there will be rust and a snap count. But we’re also talking about a Top 5 fantasy defensive back when healthy. This is the kind of add that can win championships if James heats up in time for the playoffs.

FANTASY STOCK EXCHANGE: Week 13

RB_David_Johnson_ARI_1

I said to buy David Johnson last week, and I’m going to say it again for all those who didn’t hear it. Johnson is going to bounce back soon and you want him on your team for when he does. You should be able to get him for dirt cheap for how bad he has been of late, so do it now.

ON SECOND THOUGHT: Week 13

TE_Kyle_Rudolph_MIN_1

Coming off of a bye week, Kyle Rudolph is still available in 62 percent of leagues. He was highly touted during the fantasy draft this season, then came out of the gates really slow. He was hobbled with some nagging injuries but now seems to be feeling better and hitting his stride. If you can still get him I would advise it as he has five touchdowns in his last five games.

GRAB BAG: Week 13

RB Rashaad Penny SEA

Rashaad Penny is around 70-80% available, which should make him an easier find. Definitely worth a stash in standard formats - slightly less in points per reception formats - for anyone who already knows they are playoff bound.

TRAPS & TRENDS: Week 13

WR Amari Cooper DAL & CB Josh Norman WAS

Things don’t look good for Amari Cooper. His schedule is challenging, and don’t forget that Cooper isn’t 100 percent. He has been playing through a nagging knee injury during a good chunk of the season.

SHOW ME WHERE IT HURTS: Week 12 Injury Fallout

WR_Julio_Jones_ATL_1

We don’t know the severity of Julio Jones’ injury at the moment, but his ability to return to the game suggests that it’s not very serious. Still, the Falcons have a quick turnaround to play the Saints on Thanksgiving evening, so it’s worth keeping an eye on Jones’ status.

THE PROGNOSTICATOR: Week 12

RB Phillip Lindsay DEN

The mismatch this day will be when Denver runs the ball as Phillip Lindsay carves through Buffalo with his elusiveness. Be leery of the rest in fantasy as they'll all chip in to some degree but won't stand out this week.

LIKE/DISLIKE: Week 12

QB_Matt_Ryan_ATL_1

The Bucs have given up 340 yards or more in two of the last three games and have surrendered 11 touchdowns over that same span. Matt Ryan and the Falcons should be able to feast on this secondary, fire up Ryan this week and don’t look back.

REAR-VIEW: Week 11 Recap

QB Mason Rudolph PIT

Mason Rudolph is starting to show his limitations as a passer against a Browns team that is finally healthy in the secondary. Rudolph threw for 4 interceptions and just one touchdown on an infamous night that he was hit with a helmet.

THE DIVE: Week 12 “Expect the Unexpected”

QB Jeff Driskel DET

Can you really consider starting a Detroit Lions’ backup quarterback in Week 12? Maybe. With the inconsistent fantasy performances of Aaron Rodgers, Tom Brady, Drew Brees, and Deshaun Watson, it would not hurt to at least consider. Consider Jeff Driskel if your quarterback is on a bye week or faces a difficult matchup.

5 UP/5 DOWN: Week 12

QB_Dak_Prescott_DAL_2

If Dak Prescott’s hot streak is to continue, he’s going to have to earn it, as his upcoming schedule includes a road game against that powerful New England defense next Sunday before following that up with a home game against another tough defense in Buffalo.

IDP WAIVER WIRE: Week 12

QB Ryan Finley CIN & Maxx Crosby OAK

Expecting another four-sack outing out of the fourth-round pick out of Eastern Michigan is likely being just a tad unreasonable. But Maxx Crosby’s now gotten to the quarterback in four of his last six outings, and only two teams in the NFL have surrendered more sacks in 2019 than the 41 the New York Jets have allowed.

FANTASY STOCK EXCHANGE: Week 12

TE_Cameron_Brate_TBB_1

Jameis Winston is going to have some bad passing defenses to play against coming up on the schedule, so Cameron Brate becomes a sneaky buy for all owners out there. Buy him now and play him without any worries against this upcoming string of awful defenses.

STREAMING DEFENSES: Week 12

Helmet_Cleveland_Browns_1

Cleveland plays host to the Miami Dolphins this coming Sunday. As of late, Miami has been somewhat competitive in games and managing to scores points. Ryan Fitzpatrick has been taking care of the football, with only one turnover in the past three games. The law of averages means that is due to change.

ON SECOND THOUGHT: Week 12

RB Derrius Guice WAS

With the coaching staff kicking the tires of Dwayne Haskins it is very possible they are going to do the same with Guice. Adrian Peterson has been getting the lions share of carries but many believe that is going to change going forward this season as Washington showcases their youth to determine what they have.

GRAB BAG: Week 12

TE Noah Fant DEN

There's a quite a few fantasy relevant tight ends that teams will have to temporarily replace this week and Noah Fant makes for a good option. He's roughly 70-85% available depending on your fantasy platform.

TRAPS & TRENDS: Week 12

RB Nick Chubb CLE

The numbers tell the story: Kareem Hunt has emerged as a third-down back in a backfield that resembles the Melvin Gordon/Austin Ekeler duo in its prime last season. Will Cleveland continue to operate a committee backfield for the rest of 2019?
