Darren Waller (TE - LV)
2d
Player Note on Darren Waller (TE - LV)
Waller has 24 fantasy points in the first two weeks, he should be an elite TE against a Titans D that is 25th against fantasy tight ends through 2 weeks.
Allen Robinson II (WR - LAR)
4d
Player Note on Allen Robinson II (WR - LAR)
Robinson rebounded from a dud in Week 1 to score 13 fantasy points in Week 2. He should be a WR3 with upside against a Cardinals D that is 17th against fantasy wide receivers.
Amari Cooper (WR - CLE)
4d
Player Note on Amari Cooper (WR - CLE)
Cooper rebounded from a shaky Week 1 to have 21 fantasy points in Week 2. The Steelers are just 28th against fantasy wide receivers, Cooper should be on the WR2 / WR3 cutoff this week.
Darnell Mooney (WR - CHI)
4d
Player Note on Darnell Mooney (WR - CHI)
Mooney has 1 fantasy point in 2 games, but in his defense, the Bears have thrown the ball only 28 times in 2 games. He's a boom / bust WR3 that should see more targets against a Texans team that is 23rd against fantasy wide receivers.
Terry McLaurin (WR - WAS)
4d
Player Note on Terry McLaurin (WR - WAS)
Terry McLaurin has 23 fantasy points in the first two weeks and he squares off against an Eagles secondary that is 15th against fantasy wide receivers. McLaurin is a low-end WR2 to solid WR3 this week at home.
Curtis Samuel (WR - WAS)
4d
Player Note on Curtis Samuel (WR - WAS)
Samuel has 34 fantasy points through two weeks and has become Carson Wentz's favorite target. Samuel is a WR2 with upside at home this week.
Allen Lazard (WR - GB)
4d
Player Note on Allen Lazard (WR - GB)
Lazard had 8 fantasy points in his season debut and he should be on the WR3 radar, although he has a tough matchup against the Buccaneers 8th ranked fantasy wide receiver defense.
Gabe Davis (WR - BUF)
4d
Player Note on Gabe Davis (WR - BUF)
Davis was inactive with an ankle injury on Monday Night. If he can be cleared to play this week, he should have WR2 value on the road in a game that could turn into a shootout in Miami.
DJ Moore (WR - CAR)
4d
Player Note on DJ Moore (WR - CAR)
Moore has 19 fantasy points through the first two weeks and he should have WR2 value at home against a Saints team that is 13th against fantasy wide receivers.
Diontae Johnson (WR - PIT)
4d
Player Note on Diontae Johnson (WR - PIT)
Johnson has 20 fantasy points through two games, the Steelers need to open their offense up if he is going to live up to his full fantasy potential. Johnson is a low-end WR2 this week.

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 - NYG) - Tyrod Taylor BENCHED for Week 11

News Reaction on Tyrod Taylor (QB - NYG) - 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.
