Player Note on J.D. McKissic (RB - DET)
McKissic isn't doing much running the ball, but nobody is running the ball well against Tampa. Between the tough running matchup and the loss of Marvin Jones in the passing game, it could lead to McKissic being used as a receiver out of the backfield more often, giving him desperation flex appeal in PPR leagues.
Jason Myers (K - SEA)
11h
Player Note on Jason Myers (K - SEA)
The Panthers have allowed the most fantasy points to kickers over the past five weeks, allowing 15 FG attempts and 15 extra points.
Aldrick Rosas (K - NYG)
11h
Player Note on Aldrick Rosas (K - NYG)
Yes, the Dolphins has allowed the second-most fantasy points to kickers over the past five weeks. However, this is expected to be the windiest game of the weekend, with gusts up to 20 MPH. It my be wise to look elsewhere at kicker.
Robert Woods (WR - LAR)
11h
Player Note on Robert Woods (WR - LAR)
Woods is a huge reason for the Rams' recent success, seeing 9+ targets in each of the past four games. With the other two main WRs dropping off, Woods seems to be relatively safe this week and is a borderline WR1.
Amari Cooper (WR - DAL)
12h
Player Note on Amari Cooper (WR - DAL)
Overall, the Rams' defense has allowed the 12th-most PPR fantasy points to opposing wide receivers over the past five weeks. However, Cooper will draw the toughest matchup on the field, going head to head with Jalen Ramsey. Still, Pro Football Focus gives Cooper a 12 percent matchup advantage over the talented cornerback. Cooper has also been a much more productive player when playing at home this season. He's averaged 126.3 receiving yards per contests across six home games, compared to 42.3 receiving yards in seven road games (though he was sidelined for the majority of Week 6). He's also scored five touchdowns at home (three on the road), and has recorded at least 85 receiving yards in all six games at AT&T Stadium.
D.K. Metcalf (WR - SEA)
21h
Player Note on D.K. Metcalf (WR - SEA)
It's not the greatest week for Metcalf. He is expected to see Bradberry most of the day, which is the toughest coverage from Carolina. Russell Wilson may also not need to pass more than 25 times, with how bad the Panthers run defense is. Metcalf always had upside due to his big play ability, but I consider him more of a WR3.
Chris Godwin (WR - TB)
21h
Player Note on Chris Godwin (WR - TB)
Without Mike Evans in the lineup, Chris Godwin becomes one of the top overall fantasy plays this week. He should see as many targets as he can handle and, on top of that, it is a positive matchup for Godwin. He sees a 14% individual matchup advantage, per PFF, and the Lions defense as a whole has been poor.
David Johnson (RB - ARI)
21h
Player Note on David Johnson (RB - ARI)
Do what I am doing and forget that David Johnson scored a touchdown last week. Yes, it hurts to see him on your bench, but he is just not getting the workload and he is doing little to earn snaps and work away from Kenyan Drake.
Peyton Barber (RB - TB)
21h
Player Note on Peyton Barber (RB - TB)
This appears to be a fantastic game for Barber to come in at the end of a drive and fall into the end zone. The Bucs should have little resistance from the Lions, but the loss of Mike Evans does take away a big red zone threat. Barber is a risk that many are not willing to make, but if you're desperate, my gut says he is fairly likely to run one in, especially if I have heavy exposure to Jameis Winston in DFS.
Boston Scott (RB - PHI)
21h
Player Note on Boston Scott (RB - PHI)
Scott came into the game last week once Miles Sanders got a bit banged up, but he did perform well in this opportunity. It's possible that he earned himself more snaps, but it still appears to be the Sanders show, in Jordan Howard's absence.

C.J. Anderson (RB - FA) - C.J. Anderson signs with Panthers
Sat, May 12
Love love love this move for the Panthers. Don't let his recent production fool you, Anderson is a talented back and will be an upgrade from Jonathan Stewart. Last season, Stewart averaged about 13 rushes for 45 yards per game. I think Anderson can be closer to 60 per game with a couple more scores, though he could quickly turn into a headache to own depending on the game plan. I do, however, think the offense will be better, thus creating more opportunities.
Mark Ingram (RB - BAL) - Mark Ingram suspended four games for PEDs
Sat, May 12
Ingram will appeal this suspension, but we need to simply treat this thinking he serves the full four games. I'd say this pushes Ingram down to around the sixth round in drafts, after rookies Guice and Penny, and near other vets with workload questions, like Lamar Miller or Dion Lewis. It will be tough to draft him there, since a four-game suspension means he plays one game in the first six weeks. Yikes. Seems like an obvious buy-low in-season if the drafter is struggling.
