Cameron Brate (TE - TB)
Tue, Jan 26
Player Note on Cameron Brate (TE - TB)
Gronk has only two receptions for 43 yards in the postseason while Brate has 69 yards receiving and a touchdown. Neither Buccaneers tight end has the ability of Kelce, but Brate is the better DFS option if you do not want to spend the salary on Kelce.
Travis Kelce (TE - KC)
Tue, Jan 26
Player Note on Travis Kelce (TE - KC)
Kelce has 25 targets, 21 receptions, 227 yards receiving, and 3 receiving touchdowns this postseason. He is the best tight end in the NFL and he should have a big game in the Super Bowl.
Mike Evans (WR - TB)
Tue, Jan 26
Player Note on Mike Evans (WR - TB)
Evans had 3 recpetions for 51 yards and a touchdown in the NFC Championship Game. Godwin should see more targets, Evans is the better red zone threat.
Chris Godwin (WR - TB)
Tue, Jan 26
Player Note on Chris Godwin (WR - TB)
Godwin hauled in five passes on nine targets for 110 yards against the Packers in the NFC Championship Game. He should have a big role for the Buccaneers in the Super Bowl against a Chiefs D that was fourth against fantasy wide receivers.
Tyreek Hill (WR - KC)
Tue, Jan 26
Player Note on Tyreek Hill (WR - KC)
Hill had 15 targets, 13 receptions, 269 yards, and 3 touchdowns the last time these teams met in Week 12 of the regular season. He will be hard pressed to repeat that performance, but he is in a class by himself in this game.
Darrel Williams (RB - KC)
Tue, Jan 26
Player Note on Darrel Williams (RB - KC)
Williams tallied 13 rushing attempts for 52 yards and one touchdown and one reception for nine yards in the AFC Championship Game. He out-touched Clyde Edwards-Helaire 14-7 and should be the lead back for the Chiefs in the Super Bowl.
Leonard Fournette (RB - TB)
Tue, Jan 26
Player Note on Leonard Fournette (RB - TB)
Fournette had 12 rushes for for 55 yards and a touchdown to go along with five receptions for 19 yards. Ronald Jones II and Fournette will split carries, but Fournette has had more upside that Jones in the playoffs.
Tom Brady (QB - TB)
Tue, Jan 26
Player Note on Tom Brady (QB - TB)
Brady is not a bad fantasy option, he just does not have the ability at this point in his career to make as many plays as Mahomes. The Super Bowl figures to be high-scoring and both quarterbacks should have good games.
Patrick Mahomes II (QB - KC)
Tue, Jan 26
Player Note on Patrick Mahomes II (QB - KC)
Mahomes had 462 yards passing and 3 passing TDs the last time these teams played. He should put up the best passing numbers in this game.
Rob Gronkowski (TE - TB)
Fri, Jan 22
Player Note on Rob Gronkowski (TE - TB)
The Packers are 6th against fantasy tight ends, Gronk will probably need to find the end zone to be fantasy relevant 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 - 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.
