Twitter Observations: Week Ten

It was another weird week. The 7-1 Saints lost to the 1-7 Falcons (there goes my suicide pool), the Dolphins are suddenly on a winning streak and Ryan Tannehill out-dueled Patrick Mahomes. The fantasy week was no different as Lamar Jackson has seemingly replaced Mahomes as the top fantasy quarterback while Dak Prescott is the Cowboys player to have on your dynasty team instead of Ezekiel Elliott. Some of these items will need to be ...

Dynasty Waiver Wire: Week Ten

I love fantasy football. I also hate fantasy football. I had Jarvis Landry locked into my starting lineup all week. Then I started thinking: "it’s about time to throw DeVante Parker in the lineup with him being a touchdown machine and Preston Williams being out for the year." I figured he is locked in as the number one option for Ryan Fitzpatrick. What happened? Landry had his best game of the season on my bench, ...

Rookie Report Card: Week Nine

Each week throughout the season, I’ll cover at least two rookies in the Rookie Report Card and try to always include the biggest performers from that particular week. On top of reviewing my expectations for each player coming into the league and how well he’s lived up to those expectations at the NFL level to this point, I’ll grade the player in three categories.

Target Share and the Value Beneath: Week Nine

Hello and welcome back to our target and snap share article where we look for patterns and trends in player opportunity. In many ways, it’s the doldrums of the season.

While we can be a lot more confident in our opinions of players and their projected outcomes ...

Dynasty Injury Impact: Week Nine

It was a bad week for wide receivers as multiple suffered season-ending injuries. All in all, it wasn’t a bad week for injuries. We have officially entered the part of the season where we should all be praying to the fantasy gods for no injuries to our players as we make pushes for championships. Good luck to all. PSA: When I list a player in the “notable, but less significant” it can be for one ...

It was a weird week, even by 2019 standards. The Dolphins won! The Patriots lost! My redraft fantasy team won with Ryan Fitzpatrick, Preston Williams and Duke Johnson!

Running Back Snaps at the Halfway Point

A few weeks ago, I took a look at running back snaps counts across the league. It examined a few players who might be emerging as the season wore on and may have led you to pick up players like Mark Walton, now the lead back in Miami. With the NFL season halfway over and fantasy leagues shaping up for the playoff push, some overlooked players are going to end up being key pieces for ...

News Flash: Seahawks claim Josh Gordon

Over the past six or seven years, there have been few players as polarizing as wide receiver Josh Gordon.  When the Cleveland Browns took him as a supplemental draft choice back in 2012, few believed he'd really amount to much more than a role player. Instead, Gordon posted 50 catches for 805 yards and five touchdowns as a rookie.  He then took a massive leap in 2013 with 87 catches for a ridiculous 1,646 receiving ...

Eight Players I’m Selling

Buying, selling, trading and drafting.  Together they comprise the heartbeat of your dynasty team and ultimately dictate whether you, as a coach, will be a contender or pretender.

Spooky Dynasty: Should You be Afraid of These Players?

Halloween was always one of my favorite holidays growing up. My mom used to go so overboard with decorations that our house often ended up in the local paper. I would patrol the yard as a grim reaper in my teen years, and even pretend to be a statue that kids could push over. When they would turn around, I’d slowly get back up and freak them out. That is until one little girl saw ...

8 Players I’m Buying

Unbelievably, we are at the mid-way point for the 2019 NFL football season.  We've had some surprises, disappointments and as always occurs, player values are changing after every game.  Following is a short list of players I'm buying for 2020. The term "buying" can carry many different definitions, or at least varying levels of aggressiveness, based on the individual using it.  For myself, I don't seek to purchase players when I feel their value is ...

Well, we’re halfway home. Between your record, points, potential points, you should have a good idea of where you’re team sits.

Sunday Six Pack: Week Eight

1. Is New England’s defense dominant enough, that you should sit your studs (i.e., Nick Chubb, Odell Beckham)? When you can get the opposing quarterback to see extra men, or even imaginary creatures like ghosts on a football field . . . you know you have done something right. A serious question can be asked, are they the greatest defense of all-time? The Patriots have registered a +175 point differential over the first seven weeks ...

What Makes Courtland Sutton an Attractive Dynasty Option?

With the Broncos trading Emmanuel Sanders to the 49ers, that can only mean second-year wideout Courtland Sutton’s stock is on the rise. But even before the Sanders trade, this talented receiver was already making his presence felt through the first seven weeks of the 2019 NFL season. In his rookie season, Sutton flashed plenty of potential but had reputation for the drops. Still, his first season in the league ended with 42 catches for 704 ...

Twitter Observations: Week Seven

It was a weird week in fantasy. Not only were there several studs on bye weeks (Christian McCaffrey, JuJu Smith-Schuster) which forced several odd plays but some of those plays surprising racked up points. If you stacked Jacoby Brissett and Zach Pascal or started Alex Erickson for some reason, you had a good week. But, as we know, one week doesn’t make a dynasty team and doesn’t necessarily bode well for the players dynasty prospects ...

The defense was putting pressure on Carson Wentz, the defensive line stuffed the run, and Dak Prescott and company were moving the ball with ease. Then you ...
