Chris Godwin (WR - TB)
1d
Player Note on Chris Godwin (WR - TB)
Godwin looks to finally have put his hamstring issues behind him. He should be a WR3 with upside in a game that could turn into a shootout in Tampa Bay.
Chase Claypool (WR - PIT)
1d
Player Note on Chase Claypool (WR - PIT)
You are not going to want to chase Claypool's four touchdown game, but his increased targets and the absence of Diontae Johnson should keep him in the WR3 discussion.
Julio Jones (WR - ATL)
1d
Player Note on Julio Jones (WR - ATL)
Jones seems to have put his injury behind him, but he is still a risk having missed several games with a hamstring injury. Jones is a boom / bust WR2.
JuJu Smith-Schuster (WR - PIT)
1d
Player Note on JuJu Smith-Schuster (WR - PIT)
The Browns are 31st against fantasy wide receivers, which gives JuJu Smith-Schuster and excellent chance to have a big game this week. He is a boom / bust WR2 at home this week.
Phillip Lindsay (RB - DEN)
1d
Player Note on Phillip Lindsay (RB - DEN)
Lindsay has a tough matchup in New England this week, but he should be a flex option with Melvin Gordon III out of the lineup.
J.K. Dobbins (RB - BAL)
4d
Player Note on J.K. Dobbins (RB - BAL)
The Eagles are 10th against fantasy backs, Dobbins is a boom / bust flex option due to the crowded backfield that limits all of the running backs touches.
James White (RB - NE)
4d
Player Note on James White (RB - NE)
White has had a very tough year with the loss of his dad, the bye week should help him settle back in as a flex option.
Adrian Peterson (RB - DET)
4d
Player Note on Adrian Peterson (RB - DET)
The Jaguars are 23rd against fantasy running backs and Peterson should benefit from the bye week. He is an upside flex option in a great matchup.
Devonta Freeman (RB - NYG)
4d
Player Note on Devonta Freeman (RB - NYG)
The football team is 16th against fantasy running backs, Freeman is a low upside flex option on a weak Giants offense.
Cam Akers (RB - LAR)
4d
Player Note on Cam Akers (RB - LAR)
Akers looked good in his first game back from injury. He should be an upside flex option against a banged up 49ers D.

Carson Palmer (QB - FA) - Carson Palmer retires
Fri, Jan 5
News Reaction on Carson Palmer (QB - FA) - Carson Palmer retires
Palmer only played 7 games this year and he had only 1,978 yards passing, 9 passing touchdowns, 7 picks and a QB rating of 84.4. He was averaging only 19.5 fantasy points per game. The Cardinals were going to need to find their quarterback of the future in the 2018 NFL Draft, regardless of whether Palmer retired. Hopefully they will make a great choice, because the Cardinals have a lot of good skill position players that would benefit from better QB play than they experienced in 2017.
Aaron Rodgers (QB - GB) - Aaron Rodgers taking snaps at practice
Thu, Nov 16
I think a lot depends on how the Packers do in the next few weeks. If they are eliminated from playoff contention by the time Rodgers is eligible to return, it makes no sense for the Packers to bring him back and risk an injury in a lost season. If they are still alive, they will bring him back in an attempt to save their season. Rodgers is worth a bench stash in all leagues. He is an elite QB1 when healthy and could help a team in the fantasy playoffs.
Tyrod Taylor (QB - LAC) - Tyrod Taylor BENCHED for Week 11
Thu, Nov 16
News Reaction on Tyrod Taylor (QB - LAC) - Tyrod Taylor BENCHED for Week 11
Taylor was efficient with a 64.2 completion percentage and 91.4 QB rating. The problem is the fantasy production was nonexistent with 10 touchdowns passes in 9 games and only 187.1 pass yards per game. Peterman had experience playing in a pro style offense in college. We don't know if he will be ready to play at the NFL level, so take a wait and see approach with all players not named RB LeSean McCoy. They could improve or regress, it just depends if Peterman is up to the task this year.
