2017 All-Waiver Wire Wonder Team

WR_Robby_Anderson_NYJ_1

What a strange journey it has been! The 2017 fantasy football season has long been put to rest, making now the perfect time to look back and reflect on the season that was. We hope that along the way this ...

2017 FANTASY POSTMORTEM: Cincinnati Bengals

QB_Andy_Dalton_CIN_1

Andy Dalton was able to throw at least 25 touchdown passes for the fourth time in seven seasons, though his 207.5 passing yards per game was the lowest mark of his career. While Dalton may never again reach the lofty totals he put up in 2013 he has settled in nicely as a matchup-based streamer.

2017 FANTASY POSTMORTEM: Miami Dolphins

QB_Ryan_Tannehill_MIA_

Tannehill projects as the Dolphins starting quarterback for 2018, though the team has reportedly not ruled out using their 11th overall pick in April's draft on a signal caller depending on who is still available. Meanwhile, with Cutler's one-year contract fulfilled, the former 2006 first-round pick figures to head back into retirement after reportedly indicating he's not interested in becoming a backup.

2017 FANTASY POSTMORTEM: Oakland Raiders

Helmet_Oakland_Raiders_1

With Jon Gruden finally stepping away from the ESPN booth and back into coaching, whether or not he can get Derek Carr back on his career trajectory of becoming one of the best quarterbacks in the NFL will be a storyline to monitor in 2018.

2017 FANTASY POSTMORTEM: Chicago Bears

Helmet_Chicago_Bears_1

Despite eclipsing 200 passing yards in just three of his 12 starts, Mitch Trubisky showed promise as someone the Bears could build an offense around. With John Fox out as the Bears head coach, having been replaced by former Chiefs offensive coordinator Matt Nagy (who coaxed career numbers out of Alex Smith this past season) there's hope Trubisky can take a significant step forward in 2018.

DIARY OF A FANTASY VIRGIN: Division Weekend

HC_Bill_Belichick_NEP_1

I predicted that Kansas City's defense would scheme the heck out of quarterback Marcus Mariota; it worked a little bit but it gave way after a freak own catch resulted in the first touchdown for Tennessee. I think Bill Belichick is going to really-really scheme quarterback Marcus Mariota. This means easy time for New England at home as they carry on this week.

THE PROGNOSTICATOR: Division Playoffs

QB_Tom_Brady_NEP_3

The Patriots will be up for this game and Tom Brady will be precision like. While the Titans are talented up front on defense the Patriots are arguably the best in the league at screen plays to all positions and that combination along with end arounds to their wide receivers will be tough to handle for the plodding Titans.

2017 FANTASY POSTMORTEM: New York Jets

QB Josh McCown NYJ

Josh McCown turned out to be a pleasant surprise for both the Jets and fantasy managers alike, as the 38-year old journeyman was a Top-15 fantasy scorer at his position in 8-of-13 games played before succumbing to a hand injury in Week 14.

THE GREY REPORT: Divisional Playoff

Quarterback Ben Roethlisberger Pittsburgh Steelers

Can Ben Roethlisberger put the five interception performance against the Jacksonville Jaguars earlier in the season behind him? Can Nick Foles get it together and help the Philadelphia Eagles and fantasy owners advance? David Grey will breakdown the match-ups in ...

2017 FANTASY POSTMORTEM: Denver Broncos

Helmet_Denver_Broncos_1

With quarterback being essentially the only thing holding the Broncos back from being a legitimate playoff contender, they are expected to either make a run in free agency (there's talk of heavy interest in Kirk Cousins) or take another shot in the first round of April's draft.

2017 FANTASY POSTMORTEM: Houston Texans

Helmet_Houston_Texans_1

DeAndre Hopkins turned out to be one of the best value picks in fantasy football considering he was typically being drafted after guys like Amari Cooper and Doug Baldwin. The most impressive thing about Hopkins' 2017 season was what he did after Deshaun Watson was lost for the season

THE PROGNOSTICATOR: Wildcard Weekend

QB_Cam_Newton_CAR_1

I just don't get why so many seem to be dismissing the Panthers. I've seen many that are picking the Saints to not only win this game but to also represent the NFC in the Super Bowl and while anything is possible the Saints aren't on my list.

2017 FANTASY POSTMORTEM: Indianapolis Colts

Indianapolis_Colts_Helmet_1

Frank Gore just would not go away, as he was able to start all 16 games for the Colts at the age of 34, en route to passing Jerome Bettis and LaDainian Tomlinson on the all-time rushing list (Gore now sits in fifth place) becoming just the fifth player in NFL history to compile at least 14,000 career rushing yards.

THE GREY REPORT: Wild Card Weekend

RB_Todd_Gurley_STL_1

Can anyone slow down Todd Gurley or Leonard Fournette? Can Alex Smith and the Chiefs offense keep its hot streak alive? David Grey breaks down the match-ups in this week’s Grey Report, Because Not All Match-ups are Black and White. ...

2017 FANTASY POSTMORTEM: New York Giants

Helmet_New_York_Giants_1

Evan Engram's final numbers reflect the best statistical performance from a rookie tight end since Rob Gronkowski went 42-546-10 back in 2010. After Week 5, Engram essentially was the Giants' receiving game with both Odell Beckham and Brandon Marshall shut down for the season and Sterling Shepard being shuffled in and out of the lineup with his own injury issues.

THE PROGNOSTICATOR: Week 17

RB_Bilal_Powell_NYJ_2

The Jets know that their only chance at beating the Patriots will come if they can run the ball. No other scenario wins them this game. They also know that the only thing they actually can do somewhat well is run the football. Another nice day is on the way for Bilal Powell.

CORNER LOCKDOWN: Week 17

WR_Jamison_Crowder_WAS_2

Crowder started the year as an afterthought, but has really picked it up the last half of the season. He’s scored all three of his touchdowns in the last five games and has a plus matchup with the Giants this week.

FLEX APPEAL: Week 17

RB Peyton Barber TBB

Barber is the clear lead back in Tampa Bay, while Doug Martin continues to be an afterthought. Barber out-touched Martin 15 to 6, while out-gaining him 55 to 7. Carolina's run defense is much tougher than New Orleans is, so look for Barber to have more success in Week 17.

VIP GAME CAPSULES: Week 17

KC_Alex_Smith_KCC_1

Rookie Patrick Mahomes will make his regular-season starting debut while Alex Smith enjoys a breather. Kareem Hunt, Tyreek Hill and Travis Kelce are also expected to play very limited snaps or not suit up at all. If you own any of Kansas City’s “Big Four” fantasy stars, there’s simply no reason to start them.

NEW AGE RANKINGS: Week 17

RB_Todd_Gurley_STL_2

Rams stud Todd Gurley's regular season totals will be exactly what they are now, since he'll be shut down for Week 17. But his performance this season has been spectacular, and the debate can now begin as to whether he or Le'Veon Bell is the top tailback in the NFL. For right now, the numbers clearly point to Gurley as being the best.

DFS VALUE PLAYS: Week 17

QB_Matthew_Stafford_DET_1

I almost went with Stafford’s opponent this week Brett Hundley at $4,800 but Stafford feels safer with all of his weapons intact. The Packers have allowed 14 touchdowns to opposing passers since Week 12 including two games where they gave up a ridiculous four touchdowns to the enemy quarterback!
