Sony Michel (RB - LAR)
3h
Player Note on Sony Michel (RB - LAR)
Michel will see the start today with Darrell Henderson Jr. almost a certainty to sit this week. That means he should be 20 plus touches and be a RB2 with upside.
Javonte Williams (RB - DEN)
5h
Player Note on Javonte Williams (RB - DEN)
Williams had 19 fantasy points last week and he should be a RB2 with Melvin Gordon III out against a Chiefs D that is 5th against fantasy backs over the last 5 weeks.
Amari Cooper (WR - DAL)
3d
Player Note on Amari Cooper (WR - DAL)
The Saints are just 29th against fantasy wide receivers, but Cooper could be limited in his first game back from COVID-19. He is a boom / bust WR3.
Mark Ingram II (RB - NO)
3d
Player Note on Mark Ingram II (RB - NO)
Mark Ingram II is back this week and playing well in Kamara's absence. He should be a low-end RB1 against a Cowboys D that is 8th against fantasy backs over the last 5 weeks.
Jamaal Williams (RB - DET)
4d
Player Note on Jamaal Williams (RB - DET)
Williams looks like he will be starting this week and he is a RB2 with upside against a Vikings D that is 21st against fantasy backs over the last 5 weeks.
Rhamondre Stevenson (RB - NE)
5d
Player Note on Rhamondre Stevenson (RB - NE)
Stevenson is going to lose too many touches to Damien Harris to be much more than a flex option in a tough road matchup against the Buffalo Bills.
Tevin Coleman (RB - NYJ)
5d
Player Note on Tevin Coleman (RB - NYJ)
The Eagles are 6th against fantasy backs over the last 5 weeks, Coleman is a low-end flex option at home this week.
Devonta Freeman (RB - BAL)
5d
Player Note on Devonta Freeman (RB - BAL)
Freeman is averaging 11.5 fantasy points over his last four games. He is a flex option against a Steelers D that is 30th against fantasy backs over the last 4 weeks.
Melvin Gordon III (RB - DEN)
5d
Player Note on Melvin Gordon III (RB - DEN)
Gordon has scored 9 fantasy points per game over his last two games, he should be a low-upside flex option against a Chiefs D that is 5th against fantasy backs over the last 5 weeks.
Tony Pollard (RB - DAL)
5d
Player Note on Tony Pollard (RB - DAL)
Pollard did have 15 fantasy points last week, but he loses too many carries to Zeke Elliott to be more than a flex option.

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 - HOU) - Tyrod Taylor BENCHED for Week 11
Thu, Nov 16
News Reaction on Tyrod Taylor (QB - HOU) - 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.
