Matthew Stafford (QB - DET)

Player Note on Matthew Stafford (QB - DET)
Stafford and this passing attack has been incredibly inconsistent. He returns home in Detroit this week, but he will face a tough Vikings defense that also plays better indoors. He is nothing more than a bye week fill-in this week.
Jimmy Garoppolo (QB - SF)
3h
Player Note on Jimmy Garoppolo (QB - SF)
Garoppolo hasn't been great, but he also hasn't had to do much, with the offense playing with leads. This week doesn't figure to be much different against Washington, which means he isn't much more than a bye week fill-in. However, he does have a fairly high floor.
Kyler Murray (QB - ARI)
3h
Player Note on Kyler Murray (QB - ARI)
Murray has been fantastic for fantasy, and this week he gets a plus matchup with a bad Giants secondary that continues to get exposed. The spread also indicates that it will be a close game between the two rookies, meaning Murray will have to stay aggressive and rack up points through the air and on the ground. He's a top option this week.
Aaron Rodgers (QB - GB)
3h
Player Note on Aaron Rodgers (QB - GB)
Unfortunately, the Packers are perfectly fine with leaning on the run when they have the lead, which means Rodgers will be inconsistent for fantasy because of the game flow. He faces the Raiders at home this week, which may be a tougher game than expected, but he is still only a low-end QB1. That hurts to say, but it's true.
Matt Ryan (QB - ATL)
3h
Player Note on Matt Ryan (QB - ATL)
As bad as the Falcons have been, Matt Ryan continues to put up big numbers. Rams acquiring Jalen Ramsey helps them a bit, but it's still a matchup that Ryan can take advantage of at home. He remains a top QB option every week, as he plays from behind in nearly every game.
Russell Wilson (QB - SEA)
3h
Player Note on Russell Wilson (QB - SEA)
Wilson has been spectacular this season, but now he is missing TE Will Dissly. This limits his upside, as does the Ravens trading for Marcus Peterson, but at the end of the day, he's still Russell Wilson. He's a QB1 until proved otherwise.
Dak Prescott (QB - DAL)
3h
Player Note on Dak Prescott (QB - DAL)
Dak and this offense has been bad recently. But even if he is missing some weapons for this game, he still gets to face a porous secondary that has made many think Kirk Cousins is back, after his huge performance last week. This is a perfect bounce-back spot for Dak Prescott at home on SNF, attempting to show he is worth the money with the entire country watching.
Jared Goff (QB - LAR)
3h
Player Note on Jared Goff (QB - LAR)
I know, I know. The Rams have been bad, I get it. I also understand that the struggles offensively begin and end with Jared Goff, who has been unable to get anything going under pressure this season. Under no pressure, Goff has completed 74.8 percent of his passes this season. This completion percentage drops to an atrocious 43.4 percent when he is under pressure. Luckily for Goff and the Rams, the Falcons have been unable to get pressure. They have a league-worst 2.54 sack percentage and 0.8 sacks per game. This has only gotten worse, with the team failing to get a sack during the last three games. This explains why they have been so bad against the pass, allowing the second-most fantasy points to QBs this season (24.9) and a 0.71 catch percentage. He should return to form this week.
DeSean Jackson (WR - PHI)
3h
Player Note on DeSean Jackson (WR - PHI)
Doug Pederson is hopeful that DeSean Jackson will play this week, which is great news for this Eagles offense as they head to Dallas. The Cowboys got embarrassed by the Jets last week, giving up a huge play through the air to Robby Anderson. DJax is always a big play waiting to happen, and he could be in for a number of them in prime time.
Carson Wentz (QB - PHI)
3h
Player Note on Carson Wentz (QB - PHI)
Doug Pederson is hopeful that DeSean Jackson will play this week, which would give Wentz a healthy receiving cast again. He is a QB1 with all of his weapons, especially playing against a Dallas Cowboys defense that has been embarrassed the past couple weeks.

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.
