Fantasy Football Player Notes

2020 Rest of Season Rankings
Alvin Kamara Note
Alvin Kamara photo 1. Alvin Kamara RB - NO (at CAR)
Those preseason concerns over Kamara seem foolish now, as he's totaled four touchdowns and four receptions through the Saints' first two games. He's the key cog in the New Orleans offense right now, especially with Michael Thomas battling a high-ankle sprain, and he should continue to be a top-four back in fantasy so long as he remains healthy.
4 weeks ago
Derrick Henry Note
Derrick Henry photo 2. Derrick Henry RB - TEN (at HOU)
Henry led the NFL in carries, rushing yards, and touchdowns last season, and continued to smash into the playoffs. With Ryan Tannehill back under center and continuity along the offensive line (other than the swap of Jack Conklin for Isaiah Wilson), there's every reason for Henry to have a big year. He'll never factor in heavily in the passing game so has more value in standard rather than half- or full-PPR formats. But he's a strong RB1 with little risk regardless.
5 weeks ago
Ezekiel Elliott Note
Ezekiel Elliott photo 3. Ezekiel Elliott RB - DAL (at NYG)
Elliott has been exactly as advertised all season long. 25-plus touches per game and touchdowns galore should continue throughout the season. With injuries to Christian McCaffrey and Saquon Barkley, Elliott should be considered the top running back in the game until further notice.
3 weeks ago
Aaron Jones Note
Aaron Jones photo 4. Aaron Jones RB - GB (at CHI)
Jones still isn't seeing quite the snaps of other running backs in his range fantasy-wise, but it doesn't matter. His absurd performance against the Lions notwithstanding, Jones should be locked in as an RB1 every single week, as he is heavily involved whenever he's on the field and gets the goal-line work. Your buy-low window has slammed shut.
4 weeks ago
Dalvin Cook Note
Dalvin Cook photo 5. Dalvin Cook RB - MIN (at DET)
Cook will miss Week 6's game against the Falcons with a groin injury. With a bye in Week 7, all the tea leaves indicate that Cook will miss just the one game, and be back strong in Week 8. For now, however, bump him down slightly in your rest-of-season rankings just in case.
3 days ago
Christian McCaffrey Note
Christian McCaffrey photo 6. Christian McCaffrey RB - CAR (vs . NO)
McCaffrey suffered a high ankle sprain against the Bucs, has been placed on IR, and will miss several weeks (4-6), according to reports. You're obviously not dropping him, but it's an enormous blow to every fantasy manager who undoubtedly took him first overall. Remember that McCaffrey's timetable still leaves him available for at least the entire second half of the season, so managers with strong depth can do their best to stay afloat and survive until they can make a second-half push.
3 weeks ago
Chris Carson Note
Chris Carson photo 7. Chris Carson RB - SEA (at SF)
Carson looks to be good to go despite his ugly-looking knee injury in Week 3. He isn't getting quite the volume on the ground that fantasy managers expected with the "let Russ cook" movement winning out, but his involvement in the passing game and overall efficiency of the Seattle offense keeps him locked in RB2 status.
3 weeks ago
Josh Jacobs Note
Josh Jacobs photo 8. Josh Jacobs RB - LV (at DEN)
Jacobs had an excellent rookie season, despite missing three games with injury. He flashed explosiveness and the ability to continue to gain yards after contact. To the extent there was a downside, it's that he barely factored in as a receiver (just 27 targets). Although he's expressed a desire to be far more involved in the passing game, the presence of pass-catching running backs, including Jalen Richard, makes that less likely, though the recent trade of Lynn Bowden Jr. helps Jacobs' cause in that regard. Regardless of any increased work in the passing game, Jacob should have a workhorse role and be drafted as a borderline RB1.
5 weeks ago
Davante Adams Note
Davante Adams photo 9. Davante Adams WR - GB (at CHI)
Adams is set to return from his hamstring injury in Week 6's game against the Bucs. He should immediately be considered a top-3 option going forward in rest-of-season rankings.
3 days ago
Michael Thomas Note
Michael Thomas photo 10. Michael Thomas WR - NO (at CAR)
Thomas will miss his third straight game in Week 4 with his high-ankle sprain. He practiced this week, so his return appears to be imminent, as the Saints take more of a long-term view. But for now, those rostering Thomas need to continue to find other options.
3 weeks ago
DeAndre Hopkins Note
DeAndre Hopkins photo 11. DeAndre Hopkins WR - ARI (at LAR)
Other than in Week 4 when Hopkins was battling an ankle injury, he has been everything his fantasy managers could have hoped for thus far. He has at least 137 yards or a touchdown in all four of his other games, and is getting an enormous target share each and every week. If he's not the top receiver on your board rest of season, he shouldn't be lower than second.
7 days ago
Tyreek Hill Note
Tyreek Hill photo 12. Tyreek Hill WR - KC (vs . LAC)
Hill doesn't get the targets that some of the other top receivers do - he has seen exactly six targets in four of his five games - and he has yet to top 100 yards receiving. But he's scored in every game this season and is a threat to reach the end zone anytime he touches the ball. He's a top-three options most week and going forward.
7 days ago
Jonathan Taylor Note
Jonathan Taylor photo 13. Jonathan Taylor RB - IND (vs . JAC)
With the season-ending injury to Marlon Mack, Taylor's time is now. His rushing numbers weren't overly impressive against the Jaguars, but he factored in heavily in the receiving game and looked dynamic in space. He's a borderline RB1 going forward and, although fantasy managers may have expected this eventually, those rostering Taylor get their reward early.
5 weeks ago
Joe Mixon Note
Joe Mixon photo 14. Joe Mixon RB - CIN (vs . BAL)
Mixon was a major disappointment for the first few weeks of the season, before he exploded in Week 4 against the Jaguars. The offensive line for Cincinnati is poor, but so long as the Bengals commit to getting Mixon the ball anywhere close to the level they did in Week 4, he should return RB1 value for the remainder of the season.
2 weeks ago
Calvin Ridley Note
Calvin Ridley photo 15. Calvin Ridley WR - ATL (at TB)
Ridley's start to the season is almost comical at this point, with 239 yards receiving and four touchdowns. He might be the best receiver to roster in Atlanta, but even if he's not, he's a locked in WR1 going forward.
3 weeks ago
Travis Kelce Note
Travis Kelce photo 16. Travis Kelce TE - KC (vs . LAC)
Kelce caught all six of his targets for 50 yards and a touchdown in the opener against the Texans. He's a dominant force at the position and at worst the second option at tight end. Absent injury, it should be another fantastic season for Kelce and pretty much every part of the Chiefs offense.
5 weeks ago
Julio Jones Note
Julio Jones photo 17. Julio Jones WR - ATL (at TB)
Kareem Hunt Note
Kareem Hunt photo 18. Kareem Hunt RB - CLE (vs . PIT)
After the disappointing performance in Week 6, you might be able to get Hunt cheaper than you should. Look, he's not going to come cheap, but remember you'd be buying what might be the No. 1 fantasy running back over the next two weeks when Hunt plays the Bengals and the Raiders, two teams that have been obliterated by running backs. There will be no "buy low" window for him after Week 7.
2 days ago
James Conner Note
James Conner photo 19. James Conner RB - PIT (at CLE)
Conner continues to produce each and every week. He may dominate from a yards-per-carry average at every turn, but he gets plenty of goal-line looks on a team that often plays from ahead. He's a locked-in strong RB2.
1 week ago
D.K. Metcalf Note
D.K. Metcalf photo 20. D.K. Metcalf WR - SEA (at SF)
Miles Sanders Note
Miles Sanders photo 21. Miles Sanders RB - PHI (vs . WAS)
Sanders injured his knee in Week 6 against the Ravens and is scheduled to undergo an MRI. The Eagles are reportedly concerned about the severity of the injury and, at the very least, fantasy managers can expect him to miss Week 7, as it's a Thursday game against the Giants.
1 day ago
James Robinson Note
James Robinson photo 22. James Robinson RB - JAC (at IND)
We may have passed that period where Robinson appeared to be much better than average. Over the last two weeks, in two phenomenal matchups against the Texans and Lions, he's turned 25 carries into just 77 yards. Fortunately, he caught a touchdown last week to salvage his fantasy day, and maybe provide you with an opportunity to sell. You shouldn't give him away considering how hard it is to find a running back who's guaranteed 15-plus touches per game, but maybe include him in a package to upgrade at the position.
2 days ago
Stefon Diggs Note
Stefon Diggs photo 23. Stefon Diggs WR - BUF (vs . MIA)
Kenny Golladay Note
Kenny Golladay photo 24. Kenny Golladay WR - DET (vs . MIN)
Golladay will miss at least the first two games with a hamstring injury, and he wasn't all that close to playing in Week 2, suggesting that the injury may linger for at least another week. He should be a top-10 receiver when he returns, but he'll need to be fully healthy to ensure he avoids any setbacks before he steps on the field for a regular season game.
4 weeks ago
Adam Thielen Note
Adam Thielen photo 25. Adam Thielen WR - MIN (at DET)
Clyde Edwards-Helaire Note
Clyde Edwards-Helaire photo 26. Clyde Edwards-Helaire RB - KC (vs . LAC)
Edwards-Helaire has had a fine season, although perhaps not the dominant one fantasy owners foresaw after Week 1. But now, with the Chiefs signing Le'Veon Bell, Edward-Helaire's value takes an immediate hit. He'll still get plenty of carries and be the back to roster in Kansas City, but he's no longer an RB1. Consider him a strong RB2 for now until we know exactly how the backfield will break down.
4 days ago
Chris Godwin Note
Chris Godwin photo 27. Chris Godwin WR - TB (vs . ATL)
Godwin will miss at least Week 4 and likely longer with a hamstring injury. He's performed well, as expected, when he's been on the field, but between his concussion and now his hamstring injury, he is set to miss significant time n the early part of the season. You are, and should be, still rostering him, of course, but you'll need a replacement for several weeks.
3 weeks ago
Amari Cooper Note
Amari Cooper photo 28. Amari Cooper WR - DAL (at NYG)
Todd Gurley II Note
Todd Gurley II photo 29. Todd Gurley II RB - ATL (at TB)
Gurley is getting the volume, but he has absolutely no involvement in the passing game, with just three receiving yards through three games. He's also begun to lose some snaps to Brian Hill. Still, Gurley's locked-in floor of touches keeps him as an RB2, albeit one that lacks the upside of most others.
3 weeks ago
A.J. Brown Note
A.J. Brown photo 30. A.J. Brown WR - TEN (at HOU)
Brown was set to likely miss his third straight game, but with the Steelers and Titans having their game postponed in Week 4, he gets an extra week to recover. Reports are that he'll return in Week 5, so fantasy managers who have weathered Brown's absence should be ready to reap the rewards.
3 weeks ago
Tyler Lockett Note
Tyler Lockett photo 31. Tyler Lockett WR - SEA (at SF)
David Montgomery Note
David Montgomery photo 32. David Montgomery RB - CHI (vs . GB)
Montgomery had a rough 2019 season, but there are plenty of reasons to expect him to be much better in 2020. He has no real competition for carries, he was used heavily within the 10-yard line last year, and the entire Chicago offense should be better either because Mitch Trubisky improves or the team benches him eventually for Nick Foles. Although his season-long outlook is good, he suffered a groin injury in camp and is expected to miss 2-to-4 weeks, putting Week 1 in jeopardy. Unless the Bears sign another running back of significance, however, you can draft Montgomery and expect him to be back at full strength shortly after the start of the season. Take the draft day discount, however, and target him more as a mid-tier Flex play.
5 weeks ago
George Kittle Note
George Kittle photo 33. George Kittle TE - SF (vs . SEA)
Kittle banged up his knee in Week 1 and will miss at least two games. The good news is that the injury doesn't sound serious, and Kittle has suggested he could play through the injury if necessary. For the short term, those managers rostering Kittle need a replacement, but think about upcoming matchups for the next week or two only, rather than a season-long outlook.
3 weeks ago
Ronald Jones II Note
Ronald Jones II photo 34. Ronald Jones II RB - TB (vs . ATL)
Some might be thinking "it's time to sell Jones before he screws up and gets benched again." WIth the way he's played over the last month, he's earned himself a much longer leash going forward. Meanwhile, the best attribute a running back can have is availability, which is something Leonard Fournette has not been. With the lack of true workhorses in the NFL right now, Jones should be considered a somewhat stable RB2 right now.
2 days ago
Mike Evans Note
Mike Evans photo 35. Mike Evans WR - TB (vs . ATL)
Evans looked just fine in Week 2 after battling a hamstring injury coming in, catching seven of 10 targets for 104 yards and a touchdown. Tom Brady doesn't hesitate to look his way, so fantasy managers should value him as a top-10 option going forward, and start him each and every week without hesitation.
4 weeks ago
David Johnson Note
David Johnson photo 36. David Johnson RB - HOU (vs . TEN)
Johnson looked quick and decisive in his first game against the Chiefs, scoring a touchdown and gaining over 100 total yards. At least for now, he answered questions about his effectiveness when healthy, and should be a rock solid RB2 until or unless he deals with injury concerns.
5 weeks ago
Mark Andrews Note
Mark Andrews photo 37. Mark Andrews TE - BAL (at CIN)
These are the moments you have to capitalize on as a fantasy player. Many were expecting a smash performance out of Andrews considering the matchup with the Eagles, who'd been extremely generous to tight ends coming into that game. Andrews has been extremely hit-or-miss and that can be frustrating to some fantasy managers. Try to take advantage of that because if you've been trying to stream tight ends, you know just how hard this year has been for the non-elite tight ends. With Andrews, at least you get top-three potential every single week.
2 days ago
Kenyan Drake Note
Kenyan Drake photo 38. Kenyan Drake RB - ARI (at LAR)
Drake hasn't been quite as dominant as expected in the early going of the season, with the Cardinals leaning into the pass a bit more than expected and Kyler Murray stealing some rushing touchdowns. But Drake's floor is high given hi workload, and in the right matchup, he should still put up big numbers. Expect him to perform as a strong RB2 for the rest of the season.
3 weeks ago
Allen Robinson II Note
Allen Robinson II photo 39. Allen Robinson II WR - CHI (vs . GB)
Raheem Mostert Note
Raheem Mostert photo 40. Raheem Mostert RB - SF (vs . SEA)
Mostert suffered a high-ankle sprain and is likely headed to IR. It's a tough break for a player who could be an RB1 if he could simply stay healthy. Don't drop Mostert, but be prepared to be without him for at least three weeks.
10 hours ago
Robert Woods Note
Robert Woods photo 41. Robert Woods WR - LAR (vs . ARI)
There is a pretty big disconnect between what the average fantasy football player thinks about Woods and what the expert consensus thinks about him, with the latter being significantly higher. Woods scored just three touchdowns last year but there is bound to be positive regression, and he's seen at least 130 targets in each of the last two years. With Brandin Cooks gone, and with how Woods came on toward the second half of the season, he's much closer to a WR1 than fantasy managers are giving him credit for.
5 weeks ago
Terry McLaurin Note
Terry McLaurin photo 42. Terry McLaurin WR - WAS (at PHI)
Robby Anderson Note
Robby Anderson photo 43. Robby Anderson WR - CAR (vs . NO)
Anderson has seen a boatload of targets over the first two games, and there's little reason to expect that to stop anytime soon. The Panthers should be playing from behind in nearly every game, and Teddy Bridgewater will need to throw early and often. So long as Anderson continues to see the targets, he should be considered a borderline WR3, at worst.
4 weeks ago
Devin Singletary Note
Devin Singletary photo 44. Devin Singletary RB - BUF (vs . MIA)
Keenan Allen Note
Keenan Allen photo 45. Keenan Allen WR - LAC (at KC)
Antonio Gibson Note
Antonio Gibson photo 46. Antonio Gibson RB - WAS (at PHI)
Gibson looked to have plenty of roadblocks to fantasy-relevance, but with both Derrius Guice and Adrian Peterson being released, his path is far more clear. He isn't going to be a workhorse back - he only had a handful of carries in college and is dangerous as a receiver. But he should see plenty of touches overall and be worthy of being a Flex play in most leagues.
5 weeks ago
Will Fuller V Note
Will Fuller V photo 47. Will Fuller V WR - HOU (vs . TEN)
Fuller shined in Week 1 against the Chiefs, pulling in eight catches on 10 targets for 112 yards. He saw a 31% target share, and wasn't even targeted downfield a ton, showing that the ceiling is even higher. It's all about health for Fuller. If he can avoid injury, he's likely to be a stud.
5 weeks ago
Darren Waller Note
Darren Waller photo 48. Darren Waller TE - LV (at DEN)
Waller should be the fifth tight end off the board, but fantasy managers should temper their expectations a bit. The Raiders added Jason Witten, Henry Ruggs, Lynn Bowden, and Bryan Edwards, so there will be plenty of more competition for targets. Also, remember, last season, the Raiders assumed they'd have Antonio Brown and then had to coordinate a new offensive gameplan on the fly. With their new additions, the Raiders have had months to figure out how to involve them in their offense, so Waller's usage and target share should likely decrease. Again, he should be the fifth tight end off the board, but he might not be worth the draft capital you'll need to spend to acquire him given the later options available at the position.
5 weeks ago
Cooper Kupp Note
Cooper Kupp photo 49. Cooper Kupp WR - LAR (vs . ARI)
Myles Gaskin Note
Myles Gaskin photo 50. Myles Gaskin RB - MIA (at BUF)
With Jordan Howard being a healthy inactive in Weeks 5 and 6, Gaskin has dominated the backfield touches. His usage in the passing game gives him an extremely high floor, and so long as he continues to get the goal-line work, he should be an RB2 each and every week.
1 day ago
Odell Beckham Jr. Note
Odell Beckham Jr. photo 51. Odell Beckham Jr. WR - CLE (vs . PIT)
Beckham fought through a core injury all last year, which he addressed this offseason with surgery. His talent is undeniable, but there are plenty of red flags. He's missed 21 games already in his career, has to share targets with a crowded group of pass-catchers, and will be playing for a head coach in Kevin Stefanski whose offense ran the ball 48% of the time last year. So it's unlikely that Beckham is going to see close to the more than 10 targets per game he has averaged in his career. There's immense upside with Beckham because, well, he's Beckham. But he's not going to see the 24.9% target share he saw last year, so you're better off taking him as your WR2 and hoping everything breaks right.
5 weeks ago
Le'Veon Bell Note
Le'Veon Bell photo 52. Le'Veon Bell RB - KC (vs . LAC)
Everyone is flocking to Bell now that he's with the high-scoring Cheifs offense, but this could be your opportunity to cash in and sell high. The Chiefs offensive line hasn't been good this year, as Clyde Edwards-Helaire has been a top-10 running back in terms of broken tackles, yet still hasn't lived up to expectations. Bell is not one for breaking many tackles, especially this late in his career. He will likely steal some of the passing-down work and get some carries, but it's hard seeing him have more value than Edwards-Helaire. Is there an opportunity? Sure, but the way everyone's talking about Bell, they think it's a guarantee. Use Bell's name value to move him.
2 days ago
Devonta Freeman Note
Devonta Freeman photo 53. Devonta Freeman RB - NYG (vs . DAL)
Freeman looks better each and every week with the Giants, and with the slate of opposing defenses beginning to lighten up for the Giants, the production is beginning to follow. Freeman looks rested and spry, and should continue to see the bulk of the carries for the Giants going forward.
1 week ago
Hunter Henry Note
Hunter Henry photo 54. Hunter Henry TE - LAC (at KC)
Henry dealt with an injury yet again last season, but he was productive when he was able to play. Playing 12 games, he had the most targets, receptions, and yardage of his career. The departure of Philip Rivers, however, will likely do no favors for Henry, as the veteran quarterback historically targeted his tight ends heavily. Although Tyrod Taylor targeted Charles Clay often in Buffalo, he's almost certainly going to throw the ball less than Rivers did, meaning Henry is likely to see a dip in targets. He should still be valued as a TE1, but his stock has dimmed a bit with the change in quarterback.
5 weeks ago
D'Andre Swift Note
D'Andre Swift photo 55. D'Andre Swift RB - DET (vs . MIN)
There will be a lot of people who think, "Hey, the Lions finally realized what they have in Swift during their bye week!" I said that would be a possibility last week, but I'm using this as an opportunity to sell high. Do you know how many touches the Lions running backs had last week? 38 of them. Swift saw 17 of them, or 44.7 percent. Do you know how many touches this Lions backfield averaged coming into this game? 26.5 of them. Applying Week 6's touch share, Swift would project for 11.9 touches per game, which isn't a whole lot. He's fine as an RB3/flex option but if you can find someone to buy him off his big game for RB2 value, you should consider it.
2 days ago
CeeDee Lamb Note
CeeDee Lamb photo 56. CeeDee Lamb WR - DAL (at NYG)
DeVante Parker Note
DeVante Parker photo 57. DeVante Parker WR - MIA (at BUF)
Parker not only surprisingly played in Week 2 against the Bills, but played well, catching a touchdown pass. If he is truly past his hamstring injury then he should be a top-20 starter going forward. But wait and see how he comes out of the next week or two before moving him quite that high up your rest-of-season rankings.
4 weeks ago
Jonnu Smith Note
Jonnu Smith photo 58. Jonnu Smith TE - TEN (at HOU)
Smith is one of the more intriguing names to be outside of the TE1 range. He is one of the most efficient tight ends in the game, and has a clear road to targets at the position now that Delanie Walker is no longer in his way. The problem is that there aren't all that many targets to go around in Tennessee, and Smith's targets have rarely come around the end zone. If that changes, then he's certainly got a shot at being fantasy-relevant. For now, however, he should be drafted as a TE1 only in 15-team leagues or larger or those that reward bonus points for tight ends.
5 weeks ago
Darrell Henderson Note
Darrell Henderson photo 59. Darrell Henderson RB - LAR (vs . ARI)
Henderson was an afterthought after Week 1, but then proceeded to have a monstrous Week 2 against the Eagles. It's the same story as it was with Malcolm Brown after Week 1: Henderson has a chance to be an incredibly valuable fantasy running back, or he could return to part of a committee in the near future. He should be rostered, but he needs to perform well in the next game or two to solidify his role.
4 weeks ago
Latavius Murray Note
Latavius Murray photo 60. Latavius Murray RB - NO (at CAR)
Justin Jackson Note
Justin Jackson photo 61. Justin Jackson RB - LAC (at KC)
Jackson shined in the first game without Austin Ekeler, totaling nearly 60% of the snaps and gaining 94 yards. He looked far more explosive than Joshua Kelley, and could be on the verge of taking hold of the Chargers backfield for the next several weeks. With Los Angeles on bye in Week 6, fantasy managers will need to wait to see whether this performance is sustainable, but Jackson should be added everywhere at the very least.
1 week ago
Nick Chubb Note
Nick Chubb photo 62. Nick Chubb RB - CLE (vs . PIT)
Chubb suffered an MCL injury in Week 4 and is being placed on IR. He is expected to miss about six weeks of action. Obviously, fantasy managers want to do what they can to hold Chubb on their rosters, and he should be a strong option down the stretch if managers can afford to wait that long.
2 weeks ago
D.J. Moore Note
D.J. Moore photo 63. D.J. Moore WR - CAR (vs . NO)
Melvin Gordon III Note
Melvin Gordon III photo 64. Melvin Gordon III RB - DEN (vs . LV)
Gordon was charged with a DUI on October 13th, and is likely facing a suspension (rumored at three games as of now). For now, assume he plays again this year and continue to roster him, but find another option for the short-term. Phillip Lindsay and Royce Freeman should see increased workloads.
6 days ago
JuJu Smith-Schuster Note
JuJu Smith-Schuster photo 65. JuJu Smith-Schuster WR - PIT (at CLE)
Smith-Schuster saw only six targets against the Giants but caught all six and turned two of them into touchdowns. Although Ben Roethlisberger looked rusty to start, once he found his groove, the entire Steelers offense looked strong, including Smith-Schuster. He looks likely to justify his status as a borderline WR1 coming into the season, with upside for even more.
5 weeks ago
D.J. Chark Jr. Note
D.J. Chark Jr. photo 66. D.J. Chark Jr. WR - JAC (at IND)
I promise there are some fantasy managers out there who are contemplating dropping Chark. You need to find out if one of them are in your league. Chark has dealt with a few injuries over the first quarter of the season, but after seeing 14 targets against the Lions, we can feel good about his health. He's still the No. 1 option for a team that's going to be playing from behind in 90 percent of their games.
2 days ago
Marquise Brown Note
Marquise Brown photo 67. Marquise Brown WR - BAL (at CIN)
Tyler Boyd Note
Tyler Boyd photo 68. Tyler Boyd WR - CIN (vs . BAL)
He took a backseat to A.J. Green and Tee Higgins last week, which is fine, as it allows you an opportunity to slide in and buy Boyd at WR3 (and maybe even cheaper) prices. Looking ahead at his schedule, he'll play the Browns and Titans before his bye in Week 9, which are both plus matchups. Looking ahead even further, he'll play the Cowboys, Steelers (weakest in the slot), and Texans in the fantasy playoffs. He's a borderline top-20 receiver for the rest of the season.
2 days ago
Joshua Kelley Note
Joshua Kelley photo 69. Joshua Kelley RB - LAC (at KC)
Kelley didn't get it done in his first shot after Austin Ekeler's injury. He played just 35% of the snaps and gained just 38 total yards against the Saints. The Chargers have a bye in Week 6 so fantasy managers will need to wait to see whether this was a one-off or a trend, but it will be difficult to trust Kelley going forward until we see both increased usage and better production.
1 week ago
Mike Davis Note
Mike Davis photo 70. Mike Davis RB - CAR (vs . NO)
Davis should be in line to see the majority of touches in the Carolina backfield when Christian McCaffrey on IR with a high-ankle sprain. Davis won't replace McCaffrey's production, but his ability to chip in as a pass-catcher should give him a fairly high floor. In the right matchup, he should earn RB2 status.
4 weeks ago
Leonard Fournette Note
Leonard Fournette photo 71. Leonard Fournette RB - TB (vs . ATL)
Fournette looked to have a prime shot at taking over the Tampa Bay backfield, but he floundered in Week 3 and will miss at least Week 4 with an ankle injury. Depending on the severity, Fournette still may be the back to roster long-term for the Bucs. But for now, he's on the outside looking in, regardless of the injury.
3 weeks ago
Mark Ingram II Note
Mark Ingram II photo 72. Mark Ingram II RB - BAL (at CIN)
Ingram injured his ankle against the Eagles in Week 6, but the Ravens reportedly don't think it's significant. With a bye week on tap for Week 7, Ingram has two weeks to get healthy, and the early word is promising. Of course, even at his best, Ingram is only a Flex play this year, so fantasy managers would be wise to look for other options anyway.
1 day ago
Alexander Mattison Note
Alexander Mattison photo 73. Alexander Mattison RB - MIN (at DET)
Mattison flopped in a soft matchup against the Falcons, and with a bye on tap in Week 7 and Dalvin Cook's injury looking mild, Mattison may have wasted his one shot at fantasy relevance this year. Continue to roster him as a handcuff despite his disappointing effort against Atlanta, but you obviously can't take a chance on starting him unless Cook misses the game.
1 day ago
Jerick McKinnon Note
Jerick McKinnon photo 74. Jerick McKinnon RB - SF (vs . SEA)
McKinnon has looked very good in his limited touches, and he should get the chance at a more featured role with both Raheem Mostert and Tevin Coleman set to miss time. McKinnon is not going to be a workhorse back - not given his size and how much time he has missed because of injuries. But he's a must-add in nearly all formats, and should be in line for a 15-touch role at least until Mostert returns.
4 weeks ago
Jamison Crowder Note
Jamison Crowder photo 75. Jamison Crowder WR - NYJ (at NE)
Crowder returned from his hamstring injury in Week 4 to post seven catches (on 10 targets) for 104 yards. He's Sam Darnold's go-to wide receiver, and should offer an incredibly high floor so long as he's healthy, The touchdowns may not always be there, but the catches and yardage should.
3 weeks ago
Phillip Lindsay Note
Phillip Lindsay photo 76. Phillip Lindsay RB - DEN (vs . LV)
With Melvin Gordon potentially facing a suspension after being charged with a DUI, Lindsay looks likely to inherit a large workload, similar to what he saw last year. Now past his bye with Drew Lock back, Lindsay could find himself in RB2 territory until Gordon returns, if he does this year.
6 days ago
Justin Jefferson Note
Justin Jefferson photo 77. Justin Jefferson WR - MIN (at DET)
Diontae Johnson Note
Diontae Johnson photo 78. Diontae Johnson WR - PIT (at CLE)
Johnson is in the concussion protocol after a hard hit in Week 3, but he'll get an extra week to recover after the Steelers' game against the Titans in Week 4 was postponed. There's nothing to suggest that Johnson's availability is threatened for Week 5, so for now, those rostering him appear to have dodged a bullet.
3 weeks ago
Chase Edmonds Note
Chase Edmonds photo 79. Chase Edmonds RB - ARI (at LAR)
Edmonds enters the season in a familiar spot - as a fairly decent handcuff who could have enormous value (such as in Week 7 against the Giants last year) if the starter gets injured. Absent an injury to Kenyan Drake, Edmonds should see only a handful of touches per game and provide little fantasy value. If Drake does get injured, however, Edmonds has the chance to excel, given the Cardinals' addition of DeAndre Hopkins likely opening up running lanes, along with another year of growth from Kyler Murray. He's worth drafting as a handcuff in deeper formats.

Adrian Peterson Note
Adrian Peterson photo 80. Adrian Peterson RB - DET (vs . MIN)
Peterson had a great first game with the Lions, dominating the carries and factoring into the passing game. Eventually, D'Andre Swift should take over the lead role, but for now, expect Peterson to lead the backfield in touches. That's not the mot desirable situation for fantasy, but it's also not something that can be entirely ignored. Add Peterson if he's available and start him if you're utterly desperate.

Austin Ekeler Note
Austin Ekeler photo 81. Austin Ekeler RB - LAC (at KC)
Ekeler suffered a Grade-2 hamstring injury and a hyperextended knee in Week 4 and has been placed on IR and is expected to miss 4-6 weeks. It's a huge blow for the Chargers and, of course, Ekeler. He'll go on IR, where fantasy managers should obviously find a way to stash him.

Chase Claypool Note
Chase Claypool photo 85. Chase Claypool WR - PIT (at CLE)
Some might be thinking that this would be a good time to cash in on Claypool, and I would've been one of them last week because there were certainly playing-time concerns, as he was splitting snaps with James Washington as the No. 3 receiver. But after he's performed at a high level in back-to-back games, he's earned more playing time, even when Diontae Johnson comes back into the lineup. It's up to the Steelers to figure out how to use him, and if the last few weeks are any indication, they know what to do.

James White Note
James White photo 86. James White RB - NE (vs . NYJ)
White suffered a terrible tragedy when he lost his father in an accident shortly before the Patriots' Week 2 game against Seattle. He'll miss at least Week 3, and it's simply uncertain when he'll return to the team. In PPR leagues, White is still worth rostering, but football is and should be the least of his concerns for now.

Damien Harris Note
Damien Harris photo 87. Damien Harris RB - NE (vs . NYJ)
Harris came of the IR in Week 4 to rumble for 100 yards, and looked every bit the part of the lead back for the Patriots. But Rex Burkhead and James White will factor in, as will Sony Michel once he comes off IR. Roster Harris, and start him as a Flex option for now, but when Cam Newton comes back, it's unlikely that Harris will see much goal-line work, making him a risky weekly play.

Darius Slayton Note
Darius Slayton photo 88. Darius Slayton WR - NYG (vs . DAL)
He's coming off two solid performances, but this is your time to sell, as Sterling Shepard will return to the lineup soon. That's going to lower the target floor that Slayton has enjoyed over the last month, which has made him playable in fantasy. He'll have some big performances here and there, but predicting when they'll happen will be a nightmare.

T.J. Hockenson Note
T.J. Hockenson photo 89. T.J. Hockenson TE - DET (vs . MIN)
Hockenson battled injuries throughout his rookie season bit is extremely talented, seeing a high average depth of target and more than a 14% target share. He's a potential breakout candidate but there's been some pessimism on his recovery from his ankle injury, and he admitted at the start of camp that he's not 100%. Monitor his progress but unless he's fully recovered, he's not worth drafting against other TE2s going in the same area, such as Jonnu Smith and Jack Doyle.

J.K. Dobbins Note
J.K. Dobbins photo 90. J.K. Dobbins RB - BAL (at CIN)
Dobbins saw the most snaps of any Ravens running back against the Browns and scored two touchdowns, but don't anoint him the starter just yet. With such a big lead throughout the game, the Ravens may have opted to rest Mark Ingram and get the rookie's feet wet. Still, his stock is clearly trending up, and if he sees similar usage going forward, he could be one of the steals of the draft.

Mike Williams Note
Mike Williams photo 91. Mike Williams WR - LAC (at KC)
Williams played through a hamstring injury in Week 5 and totaled 109 yards with two touchdowns. Fantasy managers may have been concerned that Justin Herbert wouldn't highlight Williams' skills, but that clearly wasn't the case. Move Williams way up your rest-of-season rankings.

Brandin Cooks Note
Brandin Cooks photo 92. Brandin Cooks WR - HOU (vs . TEN)
Cooks played through his quad injury during the opening game against the Chiefs, but his snaps were limited and he had minimal production. If the Texans were just being cautious with him and he's a full-go for Week 2, then he should be a fine WR3 option. But, until he's fully recovered from his quad injury, he's not someone to target.

Zack Moss Note
Zack Moss photo 93. Zack Moss RB - BUF (vs . MIA)
Moss is dealing with a toe injury and will miss Week 3' and Week 4's game for the Bills, at the very least. The exact nature of the injury isn't apparent yet, but there's nothing to suggest it's a long-term ailment. Move him down your ROS rankings right now, but don't jump ship entirely.

Jared Cook Note
Jared Cook photo 94. Jared Cook TE - NO (at CAR)
Cook's will miss Week 4 with a groin injury he suffered against the Packers. The severity is unclear, but given that he couldn't even muster a limited practice this week, his availability for Week 5 has to be considered questionable at this point. Monitor his progress, but make other short-, and potentially long-term arrangements.

Cam Akers Note
Cam Akers photo 95. Cam Akers RB - LAR (vs . ARI)
Akers suffered a rib injury and will miss Week 3's game against the Bills. Akers' long-term availability doesn't appear threatened yet, but his absence will make it all the more difficult to gain the starting role when he returns, particularly if Darrell Henderson or Malcolm Brown can rack up a few big weeks.

Noah Fant Note
Noah Fant photo 96. Noah Fant TE - DEN (vs . LV)
Fant suffered a sprained ankle against the Jets in Week 4 and is expected to at least miss Week 5's game against the Patriots. He's week-to-week after that, and considering how well he played and the likely return of Drew Lock, fantasy managers should do their best to hold onto him, as he's likely a top-12 option when he returns.

Jerry Jeudy Note
Jerry Jeudy photo 97. Jerry Jeudy WR - DEN (vs . LV)
Jeudy caught the first touchdown pass of his young NFL career in Week 4 against the Jets, a beautiful grab where he simply stole away an interception. He's incredibly talented, but has been between 55 and 62 yards receiving in each of his four games and is often on the field only in three-wide receiver sets. There's plenty of talent and opportunity, but the Broncos need to find a way to get him more involved for him to have significant 2020 value.

Keelan Cole Note
Keelan Cole photo 98. Keelan Cole WR - JAC (at IND)
Cole has scored in each of his first two games of the NFL season, hauling in 11 of his 12 targets for 105 yards. The Jacksonville offense is suddenly something that fantasy managers should want a part of, and that includes Cole. He's not someone to start just yet, but he's certainly someone to add off the waiver wire if you have room.

Gore played second fiddle in terms of snaps to Lamical Perine in the Jets' first game since Le'Veon Bell was released, but he manage to produce, totaling 70 yards on 15 touches. Eventually, you'd have to think that Gore gets less and less work as the Jets look to see what they have in Perine, but for now, Gore is a desperation Flex in bye weeks.

Ruggs will miss Week 3's game against the Patriots with knee and hamstring issues. It's unclear if his long-term availability is threatened, but it doesn't matter all that much for fantasy. With Darren Waller soaking up the targets, there's little room for Ruggs even when he is healthy.

Malcolm Brown Note
Malcolm Brown photo 104. Malcolm Brown RB - LAR (vs . ARI)
Brown hurt his finger in Week 2, and although he should be good to play going forward, he may have ceded the top role in the backfield to Darrell Henderson, who performed well against the Eagles. With Cam Akers nursing a rib injury, Brown is certainly worth rostering, but probably not starting absent Henderson struggling significantly.
3 weeks ago
Nyheim Hines Note
Nyheim Hines photo 105. Nyheim Hines RB - IND (vs . JAC)
Hines went from being heavily involved in Week 1 to playing 12% of the snaps and totaling just one touch in Week 2. His value lies somewhere in between, so try to hold him on your roster if you can, particularly in PPR formats.

Mecole Hardman Note
Mecole Hardman photo 106. Mecole Hardman WR - KC (vs . LAC)
Hardman played just 30% of he snaps in Week 1, and is essentially in a rotation with Demarcus Robinson for the third receiver spot with the Chiefs. He'll need an injury to someone in front of him to be fantasy viable.
5 weeks ago
Hayden Hurst Note
Hayden Hurst photo 107. Hayden Hurst TE - ATL (at TB)
Hurst rarely played even half the snaps with Baltimore, but he was sixth in yards per target last year and was PFF's eighth-highest graded tight end. Dirk Koetter's offense likes to target the tight end, as Austin Hooper saw 60 targets through eight games last year and Tony Gonzalez saw 118 targets per season under Koetter. Add in that Hurst is likely to run routes out of the slot this year and Hurst's first year with the Falcons should be a big one.

Deebo Samuel Note
Deebo Samuel photo 108. Deebo Samuel WR - SF (vs . SEA)
Samuel returned in Week 4, and although his snaps were limited, he was able to get involved even with Nick Mullens under center for most of the night. Brandon Aiyuk continues to develop and will cut into Samuel's targets, but so long as he's healthy, Samuel can be started in a pinch and should be rostered everywhere.

Emmanuel Sanders Note
Emmanuel Sanders photo 110. Emmanuel Sanders WR - NO (at CAR)
Sanders found the end zone, but otherwise didn't do a ton against the Bucs in Week 1. But with Michael Thomas suffering a high ankle sprain, Sanders should be a riser in your rest-of-season rankings. He doesn't offer the upside that he used to given his age, but he can be used as a reliable WR3 for as long as Thomas is out.
5 weeks ago
Mike Gesicki Note
Mike Gesicki photo 111. Mike Gesicki TE - MIA (at BUF)
Gesicki has scored a touchdown in two of his three games this year, but he's also failed to top 30 yards receiving in two of those games. He's talented, and is that large group of low-end TE1 caliber players. You can start him each week, but don't be concerned about streaming with a different option if necessary.
3 weeks ago
T.Y. Hilton Note
T.Y. Hilton photo 112. T.Y. Hilton WR - IND (vs . JAC)
With Andrew Luck as his quarterback, Hilton has averaged nearly 80 yards per game and topped 100 yards receiving 34% of the time. Without Luck, Hilton has averaged just over 58 yards per game, and topped 100 yards receiving just 14% of the time. Philip Rivers is an upgrade over Jacoby Brissett, so Hilton's numbers should look closer to the ones he put up with Luck, rather than those without him. But given Rivers' decline last season, it's still better to think of Hilton as only a borderline WR2 at best.

Schultz is in line for a fairly hefty workload with Blake Jarwin lost for the season. He saw 10 targets in his first full game as the top tight end target in Dallas, and although he's unlikely to see that number in any game going forward, he should still be an option that fantasy managers can play in the right matchup.

Marquez Valdes-Scantling Note
Marquez Valdes-Scantling photo 116. Marquez Valdes-Scantling WR - GB (at CHI)
With injuries abound last season, Valdes-Scantling had his opportunities, but couldn't take advantage. Despite playing in all 16 games, he caught just 26 passes and scored two touchdowns. He fell behind Allen Lazard on the depth chart, and with the addition of Devin Funchess, it appeared that Valdes-Scantling wasn't likely to see the field all that much absent an injury. But now, with Funchess opting out, there's at least a plausible, albeit unlikely, path to fantasy-relevance. He's a late-round dart throw, but that's all.

Johnson should get his chance at producing for the next several weeks with Nick Chubb set to miss time with his knee injury. He's been successful in his limited touches during his career, and with the Browns' strong running game, he could develop into a weekly Flex or RB2 option. Proceed with caution to start, but roster him everywhere.

Lamical Perine Note
Lamical Perine photo 119. Lamical Perine RB - NYJ (at NE)
Perine played the majority of the running back snaps for the Jets in Week 6, the first game after Le'Veon Bell was released, but he didn't do a ton with them. He totaled just 36 yards on nine touches, and was out-produced by Frank Gore. Perine should get a longer look as the season progresses, but he's outside the startable range for the foreseeable future.

Ertz injured his ankle in Week 6 and will undergo an MRI. It's been an incredibly disappointing season for the veteran thus far, though there's some reason for optimism if he's healthy, as the schedule lightens up considerably and the Eagles should get back some other pass-catchers who will lighten the load for Ertz. Still, his injury muddies the water for now, and he'll likely be out for at least Week 7, a Thursday night game.

Jeffery has been ruled out for Week 5 and has yet to play this season after recovering from a Lisfranc injury.

Boston Scott Note
Boston Scott photo 129. Boston Scott RB - PHI (vs . WAS)
Miles Sanders got a huge boost when the Eagles opted not to sign a notable free agent running back, but Scott's stock has somehow still remained too low. Yes, there were plenty of injuries, but Scott averaged 87.5 yards from scrimmage over the last four games last season and would be in line for significant touches should anything happen to Sanders, who is already battling an injury (Scott had 23 touches in Week 17 after Sanders was injured). Scott should be in line for upwards of 10 touches per game anyway, and also offers the upside of being a locked-in fantasy starter should Sanders get hurt. He's being undervalued by the fantasy community.

Kirk will miss at least Week 3 with a groin injury. He hasn't been heavily involved with the offense even when healthy, so fantasy managers aren't missing much. Kirk is droppable, though there's no shame in continuing to roster him for now to see how the Cardinals offense develops over time.

Corey Davis Note
Corey Davis photo 132. Corey Davis WR - TEN (at HOU)
Davis was placed on the COVID-19 reserve list on October 7th, meaning he's likely out for at least a game, depending on whether the Titans can play against the Bills in Week 5. For now, there's no reason to roster Davis with A.J. Brown returning and the Titans' situation.

Jeff Wilson Jr. Note
Jeff Wilson Jr. photo 133. Jeff Wilson Jr. RB - SF (vs . SEA)
Wilson needed a lot of injuries ahead of him to have fantasy-relevance, and he has just that.

His exact role is uncertain but he is worth an add in most formats.

Benny Snell Jr. Note
Benny Snell Jr. photo 134. Benny Snell Jr. RB - PIT (at CLE)
Snell Jr. went back to his role as a backup in Week 2 with James Conner healthy. He showed in Week 1 that he can carry the load if necessary, but so long as Conner is healthy, Snell will be just a high-end backup.

DeSean Jackson Note
DeSean Jackson photo 135. DeSean Jackson WR - PHI (vs . WAS)
Jackson will miss Week 5's game with a hamstring injury, further putting a cloud on his injury-marred season. He has enormous weekly potential when he plays, but with fantasy managers in a major roster crunch, they should be willing to move on if necessary.

Carlos Hyde Note
Carlos Hyde photo 136. Carlos Hyde RB - SEA (at SF)
Hyde had a surprisingly effective year with Houston, despite joining the team just before the season started. He saw 245 carries and averaged 4.4 yards per carry, proving useful in fantasy despite not factoring into the passing game at all. He signed late this offseason with the Seahawks, which, for now, appear to be more of a hedge for Rashaad Penny's injury rather than a chance for Hyde to supplant Chris Carson. But, given Carson's fumbling issues and hip injury, Hyde makes a decent handcuff in a run-heavy Seattle scheme.

Sammy Watkins Note
Sammy Watkins photo 137. Sammy Watkins WR - KC (vs . LAC)
Another Week 1, another big Watkins performance. He saw nine targets and had seven catches for 82 yards and a touchdown, and looked to be the clear number two wide receiver in a dynamic Chiefs offense. We've seen Watkins fool us early before, but to the extent he's on your waiver-wire, he should be added immediately.

Rex Burkhead Note
Rex Burkhead photo 138. Rex Burkhead RB - NE (vs . NYJ)
Burkhead has never topped 94 touches in a season, and has managed to play just 31 games in his three years with the Patriots. He'll turn 30 years old before the season, and will need to compete for touches with Sony Michel, Damien Harris, and James White in an offense that is no longer headed by Tom Brady. There's no reason to give Burkhead a look for fantasy purposes this year.
5 weeks ago
Tyler Higbee Note
Tyler Higbee photo 139. Tyler Higbee TE - LAR (vs . ARI)
Higbee had one of the most unexpected and dominant short-term breakouts in recent memory last season. Over the final five games, he averaged 8.6 receptions and 104 yard per contest after being essentially a fantasy afterthought for his entire career prior. There are questions about heading into the season, including whether the Rams will continue running more of the 12 personnel they ran late in the year and the impact of a healthy Gerald Everett. But, there just aren't many tight ends who are even capable of doing what Higbee did at the end of last year, meaning he needs to be viewed as a mid-tier TE1, albeit with a bit of a skeptical eye.

Marvin Jones Jr. Note

Rob Gronkowski Note
Rob Gronkowski photo 141. Rob Gronkowski TE - TB (vs . ATL)
At his peak, Gronkowski was likely the greatest tight end of all time. But after a year off, fantasy manager can't expect him to simply return to his peak self, especially since he hasn't played a full season in nearly a decade. With his immense talent and back with Tom Brady, Gronkowski should still be drafted a TE1, but don't expect a full season of health or a return of the Gronk of old.

Jamaal Williams Note
Jamaal Williams photo 142. Jamaal Williams RB - GB (at CHI)
Williams offered some occasional standalone value last year, but he was mostly just a slight thorn in Aaron Jones's side and a high-end handcuff. The Packers used a second-round pick on AJ Dillon, and so even were Jones to get injured, Williams would likely have to compete for touches. He'll still factor into the gameplan, but for fantasy purposes, he's unlikely to see significant value under any circumstances this year.

Travis Fulgham Note
Travis Fulgham photo 143. Travis Fulgham WR - PHI (vs . WAS)
I know, I know. He's now produced in two straight matchups that have been tough. He's also seen 23 targets in those two games, something that's highly unlikely to happen again with DeSean Jackson, Alshon Jeffery, and Jalen Reagor due to come back to the lineup over the next few weeks. If you wait until they come back, it'll be too late, so take advantage of this opportunity to sell high on the surprising performer.

Scotty Miller Note
Scotty Miller photo 146. Scotty Miller WR - TB (vs . ATL)
Miller has had plenty of bright spots this year, but he's also been essentially absent for two weeks, both when Chris Godwin was out and Miller's managers were relying on him. He's been banged up himself, but his lack of production during the times when he's most needed has been frustrating. He's fine to roster in deeper leagues as a bench and bye-week option, but not as anything more.

Matt Breida Note

Although Jordan Howard fell flat in Week 1, it was Myles Gaskin, and not Breida, who was the beneficiary. Breida should get more work in the future, but for now, there's no way you can consider starting him, and he doesn't need to be rostered. If somehow he establishes the lead role for Miami, then he'll become a prime waiver-wire add. But that seems unlikely for now.

Evan Engram Note
Evan Engram photo 149. Evan Engram TE - NYG (vs . DAL)
Engram is extremely talented, has one of the best rookie tight end seasons on his ledger, and is jut 25 years old. But despite all that, there are several strikes against him from a fantasy perspective. Not only has he missed 13 games the last two seasons, but he's also going to be sharing targets with Saquon Barkley, Sterling Shepard, Golden Tate, and Darius Slayton. He's a starting tight end for any fantasy team, but his star doesn't burn quite as bright this draft season as in previous years.

Austin Hooper Note
Austin Hooper photo 150. Austin Hooper TE - CLE (vs . PIT)
Hooper was having a borderline dominant fantasy season halfway through the year before an injury brought his production down significantly. Cleveland was hardly the expected or desired destination for Hooper from a fantasy point of view, considering he'll need to compete with a ton of mouths for targets. But, at least Hooper will be on the field non-stop, as Kevin Stefanski runs plenty of two-tight end sets, and Baker Mayfield has thrown 35% of his career touchdown passes to tight ends. Hooper can be considered a startable option in most leagues, but a low-end one.

Curtis Samuel Note

Kerryon Johnson Note
Kerryon Johnson photo 152. Kerryon Johnson RB - DET (vs . MIN)
Poor Johnson cannot catch a break. After battling injuries throughout his young career, the Lions drafted D'Andre Swift this offseason, which put Johnson as only borderline relevant in fantasy circles. With Swift battling injury as the Lions approached the season, however, it looked like Johnson would at least have an impact role early in the year, with the chance to carve out a larger role even when Swift was healthy. But now, with the Lions signing Adrian Peterson, Johnson again has impediments to fantasy-relevance. Johnson is talented and could succeed in the right situation, but given all the roadblocks in front of him, he's best left as a bench stash in deeper leagues.

Sure, he's caught at least four passes in 4-of-5 games, but he's not breaking tackles like he used to, and it's capped his appeal in fantasy leagues. He hasn't topped 47 yards in any game, and we're expecting Sterling Shepard back soon, meaning his floor won't even be there.

Giovani Bernard Note
Giovani Bernard photo 156. Giovani Bernard RB - CIN (vs . BAL)
Had Bernard not missed six games in 2016 that artificially kept his numbers down, he'd be coming off three straight years of declining touches. As it is, he's been nothing more than a change-of-pace back for the last two seasons, who occasionally factors into the passing game but rarely does anything noteworthy. Even with an injury to Joe Mixon, it's doubtful that Bernard would carry the load himself given his age and size, so he's best ignored in fantasy circles.

Tre'Quan Smith Note
Tre'Quan Smith photo 157. Tre'Quan Smith WR - NO (at CAR)
Smith should be the primary beneficiary of Michael Thomas's high ankle sprain. Fantasy managers have been waiting for years for Smith to become a reliable option and this is his best chance to do so. If he's available on waivers, add him everywhere, but wait to see how the New Orleans offense plays out before starting him immediately.

Zach Pascal Note
Zach Pascal photo 158. Zach Pascal WR - IND (vs . JAC)
Pascal had his moments last year, including a two-touchdown game against the Texans and a two-game stretch in December when he caught 12 passes for 183 yards and a touchdown. But, overall, he made little noise in his second season. Although a third-year breakout was there to be had with Philip Rivers at quarterback, the Colts' drafting of Michael Pittman Jr. put a major damper on those prospects. Pascal will likely need an injury to get on the fantasy radar this year, so he's more of someone who fantasy managers should look at on the waiver wire rather than during their drafts.

Anthony Miller photo 162. Anthony Miller WR - CHI (vs . GB)
Miller had a big first game but was entirely shut out in Week 2 against the Giants. But the real takeaway from his first two games is that he's played on just 40% of the snaps or so, making him as unreliable as can be for fantasy purposes. Unless and until Miller plays more, feel free to move on.

Jordan Howard Note
Jordan Howard photo 163. Jordan Howard RB - MIA (at BUF)
Howard has scored a touchdown in each of his first three games, but he only garners touches around the goal-line and nowhere else. A touchdown-or-bust option with zero yardage upside is hardly a desirable commodity in fantasy circles, and managers should leave him to the waiver wire.

Dallas Goedert Note
Dallas Goedert photo 165. Dallas Goedert TE - PHI (vs . WAS)
Goedert was placed on IR on Tuesday with an ankle fracture. He had continued his growth as one of Carson Wentz's favorite targets, but can now be sent to the waiver wire. Even if he returns, the Eagles should have most of their other pass-catchers back, which should result in a decrease in targets for Goedert in any event.

Humphries was placed on the COVID-19 reserve list, and will miss at least Week 5 against the Bills. The chances of him playing in Week 6 also seem remote, but for now, the few fantasy managers still rostering him can keep him in their IR spot for at least another week.

James Washington Note
James Washington photo 169. James Washington WR - PIT (at CLE)
Throw out everything that happened for any Steelers receiver in 2019. The combination of Mason Rudolph and Devlin Hodges would (and did) sink any pass-catcher they came across. With Ben Roethlisberger back under center, there's some optimism as a vertical threat, but he's certainly been passed by Diontae Johnson in terms of "breakout Steelers receivers." With Chase Claypool also in tow, Washington's chances of fantasy relevancy seem dim, and he's more of a "handcuff" receiver to Johnson and JuJu Smith-Schuster.

Peyton Barber Note
Peyton Barber photo 170. Peyton Barber RB - WAS (at PHI)
Barber never found sustained success with the Bucs, and will now try his hand with the Washington. Washington has a below-average offense with a sub-par offensive line, but his competition for touches has decreased significantly without Adrian Peterson and Derrius Guice. He'll still be competing for touches with J.D. McKissic, Antonio Gibson, and Bryce Love, but there;s a decent chance he seems some early down work. Still, he's only worth drafting as a bench option.

Hamler suffered a hamstring injury in Week 4, and may need to miss some time. With Courtland Sutton's injury, the door is open for Hamler to produce, but he'll obviously need to prove himself healthy. With plenty of options at the position, fantasy managers can move on if they need to.

Jimmy Graham Note
Jimmy Graham photo 178. Jimmy Graham TE - CHI (vs . GB)
It's hard to imagine Graham clawing his way back into being fantasy relevancy this year. Despite the lack of a second option behind Davante Adams, Graham barely made any noise last year for the Packers, finishing 22nd in 1/2 PPR points among tight ends. Now in what was a stagnant offense last year and with several other tight ends on the roster, it would be surprising if Graham found a way to factor in significantly. Ignore him in all leagues but deeper formats that award bonus points to tight ends.

Logan Thomas Note

Thomas had a big Week 1 against the Eagles, seeing plenty of targets and a high percentage of air yards. It may be a fluke, but given the dearth of reliable pass catching options for Washington, Thomas should be added in all tight-end premium leagues, at the very least. If he has another good game, he'll move up to borderline TE1 status.

Smith played a fair amount in his rookie season, but he's still second fiddle to Kyle Rudolph. Although the two tight ends essentially split targets last year, Smith was used fairly closer to the line of scrimmage and almost never had a chance to break big plays. He may see a bit more usage now with plenty of vacated targets in the absence of Stefon Diggs, but he's nothing better than a low-end TE2.

Jalen Richard Note
Jalen Richard photo 188. Jalen Richard RB - LV (at DEN)
Richard saw a dip in production with Josh Jacobs on the roster, but he'll always be the passing-downs thorn in Jacobs' side. The Raiders gave Richard a two-year extension this offseason, so despite talk of Jacobs' added involvement in the passing game, Richard should continue to hold his role. Unfortunately, that role isn't worth that much, particularly with Lynn Bowden added to the mix. Richard is worth a look in extremely deep PPR formats, nothing more.

Andy Isabella Note
Andy Isabella photo 189. Andy Isabella WR - ARI (at LAR)
Isabella caught two touchdown passes in Week 3 against the Lions, but his long-term viability as a fantasy play is still questionable, considering Christian Kirk was out. He's someone to roster on your bench, but don't feel comfortable starting him until or unless you see another big game.

Allen Lazard Note
Allen Lazard photo 190. Allen Lazard WR - GB (at CHI)
Lazard was having a breakout year, but is now dealing with a core muscle injury which required surgery. His exact timetable isn't known, but expect him to miss several weeks at least. Stash him on IR if you can, but don't be afraid to move on if you're in a roster crunch.

Miles Boykin Note
Miles Boykin photo 191. Miles Boykin WR - BAL (at CIN)
Boykin saw just 22 targets in his rookie season, though that should hardly be viewed as an indictment of his talent. The Ravens' run-heavy approach and positive game script left few targets to go around. Because they ran the ball at such an historic rate last year, the Ravens' natural regression suggests there should be more targets to go around. Boykin should benefit, but with the addition of Devin Duvernay, there's one more mouth to feed in Baltimore. Boykin should improve, but he's unlikely to see enough work to be worth drafting in fantasy leagues.

Darwin Thompson Note
Darwin Thompson photo 199. Darwin Thompson RB - KC (vs . LAC)
Thompson has talent and plays in an outstanding system for running backs, but there's almost no chance he'll have fantasy value this year. Clyde Edwards-Helaire will lead the way in the Kansas City backfield, and DeAndre Washington and Darrel Williams will also compete for touches. Thompson would have potential if he ever saw enough of an opportunity, but there's little chance of that happening in 2020.

Greg Olsen Note
Greg Olsen photo 201. Greg Olsen TE - SEA (at SF)
Despite getting up there in age, Olsen showed he still had some gas left in the tank in 2019, finishing as the 13th-ranked tight end in 1/2 PPR formats despite playing just 14 games and scoring just two touchdowns. Seattle isn't a bad place for tight ends, but with Will Dissly expected back and Jacob Hollister still on the roster, it's unlikely that Olsen will see his usual number of targets. He's worth drafting in leagues that give bonus points to tight ends but he's outside the TE1 range in standard-sized leagues.

Agholor has never made the most of his opportunities, struggling with drops throughout his five-year career. Now with the Raiders, even if a fresh start would have done him some good, there's simply no room for him to find fantasy production. Even with Tyrell Williams out for the season, behind Henry Ruggs, and Hunter Renfrow, not to mention the presence of Bryan Edwards and Zay Jones, it's almost impossible to envision a scenario where fantasy managers are starting Agholor at any point.

Drew Sample Note
Drew Sample photo 210. Drew Sample TE - CIN (vs . BAL)
Joe Burrow has heavily targeted the tight end position early in his young career, and with C.J. Uzomah lost for the season, Sample should have a fairly big role. He saw nine targets in Week 2 against the Browns, and although he's unlikely to come close to that number again (unless Burrow again makes 61 pass attempts), he should be a streamable option in the right matchup.

Akins caught both of his targets for 39 yards and a touchdown in Week 1 against the Chiefs. He splits time with Darren Fells and is unlikely to be heavily involved, but in deep leagues with bonus points for tight ends, he could be a bench option that fills in during bye weeks.

Moore took a step back in 2019, catching just 17 passes and scoring two touchdowns. Now, he'll fall out of even three-receiver sets, with Phillip Dorsett on board. Even with an injury in front of him, it seems doubtful that Moore would be worth rostering, so ignore him on draft day and likely beyond.

Denzel Mims Note
Denzel Mims photo 220. Denzel Mims WR - NYJ (at NE)
Mims will miss Week 1 with his hamstring injury, and, to the extent anyone thought he might have fantasy value this year, the injury all but ruins that potential. With little practice time and no game action and in a low-volume and conservative offense, there's no reason to roster Mims going forward.

Michael Pittman Jr. photo 223. Michael Pittman Jr. WR - IND (vs . JAC)
Pittman Jr. had compartment leg syndrome in his calf, and had surgery to address it after Sunday's win against the Jets. The hope is that he'll be back in Week 8, after the Colts' bye. Pittman is a talented wide receiver who should have an opportunity so long as Parris Campbell is out, but he can likely be dropped and picked back up before he returns. In other words, unless you have a free spot, there's no reason to roster Pittman now.

Everett wasn't a startable tight end for most of the season anyway, but he dealt with injuries over the last several weeks of the year and was completely irrelevant. Unfortunately for Everett, Tyler Higbee emerged as a force down the stretch, furthering deepening the divide between Everett and fantasy-relevancy. He's beyond even TE2 consideration at this point.

Royce Freeman Note

Freeman should see an expanded role now with Phillip Lindsay sidelined with turf toe. But he saw little action even after Lindsay left the game in Week 1, so don't expect him to go back to close to a 50-50 split like he saw last year. Other than extremely deep leagues, there's little reason to concern yourself with Freeman even with his likely increase in usage.

Smith has been Devonta Freeman's primary backup for two years, but has never seen more than 14 touches in a game. He'll again play second fiddle in Atlanta, this time to Todd Gurley. Even if Gurley were to get injured, however, Smith would likely split time with Brian Hill, making him only a low-end handcuff who isn't worth rostering in fantasy leagues.

Bowden Jr. was traded to the Dolphins on September 5th. The Raiders signing of Theo Riddick was, in hindsight, a sign that Bowden may have been struggling to pick up the offense. It's unclear what his role will be with the Dolphins, but it's unlikely that he'll be fantasy relevant in 2020.
