Let’s just get this out of the way right now: If #FantasyFootball Twitter had a Hall of Fame, Scott Barrett would be a first-ballot choice. Here’s his latest social nugget, one which should please certain fantasy owners to no end:
RB Leaders in Missed Tackles Forced per Touch
1. Alvin Kamara (0.32)
2. Duke Johnson (0.29)
3. Josh Jacobs (0.29)
4. Chris Carson (0.29
5. Damien Williams (0.27)
6. Devin Singletary (0.27)

Hey, look who’s on top of the list! And guess who’s probably returning to action this week? It’s a no-brainer for owners to slot Kamara in their lineups the moment he’s cleared to play, but with a stat like this as backing, you could make an intriguing case for leaning heavily on Kamara in daily fantasy, as well.
Nic Romero keeps this Twitter party going with a little D/ST advice for those of you looking for a decent late-season option that hasn’t already been stashed:
PIT DST (3rd overall fantasy DST) faces CLE x2, CIN, NYJ (wk 16), BUF, ARI down the stretch and into the fantasy playoffs. Many will drop or avoid with a matchup against LAR this week. Worth the roster spot if you can afford looking ahead.

Contrary to what New England D/ST owners will tell you, there’s still non-Patriots value out there to be had at the position – and the Steelers appear to be a sneaky play as we approach the fantasy playoffs.
Building off the first item on our list, here’s a look at running backs who have smashed their way to success this year (courtesy Frank Stampfl):
Your leaders in yards after contact per attempt on the season, per @PFF:
Duke Johnson- 3.70 👀
Josh Jacobs- 3.70
Lat Murray- 3.59 👀
Nick Chubb- 3.58
Alvin Kamara- 3.42
Dalvin Cook- 3.36
Derrick Henry- 3.34
Kenyan Drake- 3.31 👀
Mark Ingram- 3.29

Josh Jacobs owners will no doubt acknowledge the prominent presence of their guy on both lists. Yessir, Jacobs looks like quite a draft steal to this point, and could emerge as a league winner down the stretch.
Jared Smola identifies a wide receiver who could make for an interesting FLEX or DFS ninja in Week 10:
Ted Ginn has averaged 3.9 catches 65.7 yards and .36 TDs in 14 career home games with Drew Brees.
He's home for the #Falcons' 29th-ranked WR defense this week.
— Jared Smola (@SmolaDS) November 6, 2019
There should be plenty of passes to go around for the New Orleans offense this weekend, even with Michael Thomas and presumably Kamara soaking up the targets. Don’t be surprised to see Ginn in many a winning season-long or daily fantasy lineup this week.
Let’s close things out with another regular contributor, Brad Evans, who is the latest fantasy analyst to point out just how ridiculously unlucky Leonard Fournette has been in 2019:
Most RB red-zone rush attempts this season:
1) Zeke Elliott – 39, 6 TDs
2) Leonard Fournette – 35, 1 TD (Dude needs 🍀🍀🍀)
3) Dalvin Cook – 31, 8 TDs
4t) Sony Michel – 30, 6 TDs
4t) Josh Jacobs – 30, 6 TDs#FantasyFootball
— Brad Evans (@YahooNoise) November 6, 2019
Much like Ezekiel Elliott last season, you have to wonder if this is just what Fournette is this year – a high-yardage, low-touchdown option sure to frustrate fantasy owners who need those six-point runs BAD. Owners have no choice but to stick it out and hope for some positive regression down the stretch.
Here’s the best of the rest from Fantasy Twitter this week:
Stefon Diggs still leads the league in yards per route run this season. The only player at any position above 3 yards per route run, which is an insanely (Julio Jones) high mark.
— Sam Monson (@PFF_Sam) November 6, 2019
Russell Wilson has the second most pass attempts inside the red zone and leads the league with 18 TDs to zero interceptions on those attempts.
Brissett is the closest with 13 TDs to zero picks.
Tom Brady leads in attempts (6 more than RW) and has 9TDs to 2 INTs.

Philip Rivers TD%
AVG before 2019 5.3
The Raiders have allowed the most passing TDs this season… It's time for Rivers to #Regress
