Sterling Shepard (WR - NYG)
1d
Player Note on Sterling Shepard (WR - NYG)
Shepard has good WR3 appeal against an Eagles secondary that has struggled to stop anyone this season.
Josh Jacobs (RB - OAK)
1d
Player Note on Josh Jacobs (RB - OAK)
The Titans are 20th against fantasy running backs, but Jacobs is a game time decision and he could be knocked out of this game if he aggravates his shoulder injury. He is a boom / bust RB2 at home due to injury concerns.
Austin Hooper (TE - ATL)
2d
Player Note on Austin Hooper (TE - ATL)
Carolina is 6th against fantasy tight ends, Hooper is a low-upside TE2 at home against a tough tight end defense in his first game back.
Carlos Hyde (RB - HOU)

Player Note on Carlos Hyde (RB - HOU)
The Broncos are 16th against fantasy running backs, Hyde is a low-end RB2 at home this week.
D.K. Metcalf (WR - SEA)
4d
Player Note on D.K. Metcalf (WR - SEA)
The Rams and Seahawks could end up turning into a shootout, which makes Metcalf a viable WR3 option on the road this week.
Robert Woods (WR - LAR)
4d
Player Note on Robert Woods (WR - LAR)
Woods had a monster game in Arizona last week and he should be a WR3 option with upside against a Seattle team that they may need to win a shootout with at home.
Robby Anderson (WR - NYJ)
4d
Player Note on Robby Anderson (WR - NYJ)
Anderson's play has been picking up in recent weeks, he is a WR3 at home in a great matchup.
A.J. Brown (WR - TEN)

Will Fuller (WR - HOU)

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.
