VIP EARLY GRAB BAG: Week 15

RB_Derrick_Henry_TEN_1

Now THAT is the Derrick Henry that many fantasy players hoped he would be when they invested in him in fantasy drafts this past summer. Henry has mostly been a disappointment this season but had a fantasy performance of the ages last Thursday against Jacksonville.

TRAPS & TRENDS: Week 15 Edition

RB Phillip Lindsay DEN

Week 14 of the NFL season will forever live on in the memories (or the nightmares) of fantasy managers because of the monster performances from Derrick Henry, Saquon Barkley, Amari Cooper and George Kittle, and because of the laundry list ...

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.

DFS VALUE PLAYS: Week 14

TE_Rob_Gronkowski_NEP_2

It is still strange to see Gronkowski priced in the $5K range for a fifth consecutive week but outside of Week 1 and Week 12 we haven’t seen much of the old Gronkowski. In fact it is crazy that a team such as the 9-3 New England Patriots doesn’t have any standout fantasy players we consider for daily DFS on a weekly basis.

THE PROGNOSTICATOR: Week 14

QB Nick Mullens SFO

I realize how silly this may sound but Nick Mullens is coming off a gem of a game against Seattle where he threw for 414 yards and had a 95.3 QB rating. He's been improving each week and with Denver reeling defensively in their secondary due to injury and this game being in San Francisco, it's a very appealing spot for Mullens and Dante Pettis.

RED LIGHT, GREEN LIGHT: Week 14

red-light-green-light

Welcome back for the Week 14 edition of “Red Light, Green Light”, your matchup guide for all of this weekend’s (and Monday’s) NFL contests. While this piece is not intended to be solely a start/bench list, it can be used ...

IDP STUDS AND DUDS: Week 14 IDP Start/Sit

LB Darron Lee NYJ

Darron Lee has been an inconsistent IDP option this year, and the fact that less than half of his tackles in Week 10 were solos may give some IDP owners pause. This one’s in Buffalo against a team that leads the NFL in fantasy points allowed to linebackers, in from of arguably the most generous stat crew in the league.

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.

BOLD PREDICTIONS: Week 14

RB Dalvin Cook MIN

In the four games since he’s returned from the world’s most nagging hamstring injury, Dalvin Cook has caught at least three passes in every game and is averaging 4.5 receptions per game. Expect Cook (who is Minnesota’s primary pass-catching back) to have his best fantasy performance of the season.

FLEX APPEAL: Week 14

RB Peyton Barber TBB

Peyton Barber received 16 carries in week 13 against Carolina, and I expect him to see another 15-20 carries this week. This is an "attackable" matchup for Jameis Winston to get the ball near the goal line, which is where Barber excels.

RISERS & FALLERS: Week 14

RB Phillip Lindsay DEN

Where will we be drafting Lindsay in 2019? We all thought that Royce Freeman was going to be the rookie back to own but out of nowhere we see the 24-year-old out of Colorado completely steal the show. Lindsay plays much larger than his 190-pound frame would leave you to believe and his intensity level borders on insanity.

CORNER LOCKDOWN: Week 14

RB Aaron Jones and QB Aaron Rodgers Green Bay Packers

With Green Bay in disarray, Aaron Jones has been one of the only bright spots for the team. He’s found pay-dirt in five of the last six games and is proving to be a solid pass catcher.

VIP GAME CAPSULES: Week 14 – Thursday Edition

RB_Derrick_Henry_TEN_1

Derrick Henry didn't erupt against the Jets as many had expected, but the early-down bulldozer still hit pay dirt for the fifth time in his last six games. Even though Jacksonville has yielded the sixth-fewest rushing yards and the second-fewest rushing touchdowns to the tailback position, the touchdown-dependent Henry has some things working in his favor.

THE GREY REPORT: Week 14

QB Andrew Luck IND

Can Andrew Luck and Indianapolis bounce back from being shutout by Jacksonville? David Grey will break down all the matchups in this week’s Grey Report, because “Not all matchups are black and white.”

DFS GEMS: Week 14

QB_Carson_Wentz_PHI_1

The idea this week is to save a bit of budget so we can spend it elsewhere and Wentz not only gives us a solid spot to save this week but he also might get us a quarterback with moderate ownership in GPP’s.

START/BENCH: Week 14

QB Baker Mayfield CLE

That willingness and ability to shake off a bad play/half/game is going to serve Mayfield well over his NFL career. It could also serve fantasy owners well in Week 14, when everyone’s favorite spot-starter is back at home playing against a reeling Carolina team that lost four straight and risen all the way to sixth in fantasy points per game allowed to quarterbacks.

PROSPECT WATCH: Heisman Edition

QB Dwayne Haskins Ohio State

We are coming into Bowl Season for College Football. The NFL Draft order is starting to take shape with four games left in the season. To me, that signals the true start to Draft Season! Starting December 6th, College Football Awards Shows will start and go throughout the weekend leading up to the Heisman Trophy Presentation December 8th.

LIKE/DISLIKE: Week 14

RB Christian McCaffrey CAR

McCaffrey leads all running backs in receptions (80), receiving yards (663), is tied for second in receiving touchdowns (6) and has hauled in at least five receptions in all but one game this season. He is wreaking havoc on opposing defenses on a weekly basis and is primed to continue his incredible pace in Week 14 against a horrendous Cleveland defense.

PICK’EM & SURVIVOR: Week 14

Helmet_San_Diego_Chargers_1

The Chargers play very well in Los Angeles as they’ve won eight out of their last ten games at home. On the other hand, the Bengals do not travel well against teams with winning records. It looks like the Bengals will be without A.J. Green as well.

WAIVER WIRE WONDERS: Week 14

RB Jeffery Wilson SF

With nothing to lose, San Francisco has been throwing caution in the wind. For the second week in a row, Jeff Wilson has not only been active, but has been a key component of the game plan, getting several touches on the field.

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.

IDP WAIVER WIRE: Week 14

LB Gerald Hodges ARI

Gerald Hodges has now tallied double-digit tackles in two straight games as the new MIKE (middle inside) linebacker for Arizona. There’s little reason to think he can’t make it three big stat lines in a row on Sunday.

DIARY OF A FANTASY VIRGIN: Week 14

RB Phillip Lindsay DEN

On the last week of our fantasy football season, RB Phillip Lindsay, RB James Conner, and QB Deshaun Watson went for a combined 70 points. Only Phillip Lindsay went for a 28 burger but that was enough. I have been winning by getting 90 points from my Top 3 players and coasting in.

ON SECOND THOUGHT: Week 14

QB Josh Allen BUF

At first it seems odd suggesting a Buffalo quarterback, but have you seen his stats lately? Allen is available in 96 percent of leagues and just came off a great game against Miami where he threw for 231 yards and two touchdowns and ran for 135 yards.
