Fantasy Football Player Notes

2019 Rest of Season Rankings
Christian McCaffrey photo 1. Christian McCaffrey RB - CAR (vs . NO)
McCaffrey bounced back from his poor performance in Week 2 to have a dominant game against the Cardinals in Week 3. Regardless of who is under center for the Panthers, McCaffrey should be considered a top-three running back in all formats. He's one of the few players with legitimately zero concerns from a fantasy standpoint.
11 weeks ago
Dalvin Cook photo 2. Dalvin Cook RB - MIN (vs . CHI)
There's little that can stop Cook at this point. He's a perfect fit for Gary Kubiak's zone blocking scheme, he plays on a team that just wants to run the ball, and he's scoring touchdowns at will. He has a legitimate shot to finish as the top running back in fantasy if he stays healthy and should be valued accordingly.
10 weeks ago
Ezekiel Elliott photo 3. Ezekiel Elliott RB - DAL (vs . WAS)
Elliott continues to do what he does - put up impressive numbers running behind a strong offensive line in a (newly) creative offense. Other than ceding work to Tony Pollard in garbage time, there should be no concerns with Elliott's production. He's a top-three running back in all formats.
11 weeks ago
Derrick Henry photo 4. Derrick Henry RB - TEN (at HOU)
Henry has already scored four touchdowns in three games, and has pretty much shown that he's game-script proof, continuing to get work even when the Titans were well behind in Week 3 against the Jaguars. He doesn't offer much in the passing game, but with his volume, he's at least a strong RB2 going forward, even in half PPR leagues.
11 weeks ago
Alvin Kamara photo 5. Alvin Kamara RB - NO (at CAR)
Since returning from his ankle sprain, Kamara has totaled 39 carries and 37 targets, which amounts to 19.0 opportunities per game. Volume is not an issue for him. Touchdowns are the only thing that's been lacking for him. Knowing what we do about the Saints offense, it's only a matter of time before they start adding up. You want him on your team rather than the opponent's during the fantasy playoffs.
5 days ago
Nick Chubb photo 6. Nick Chubb RB - CLE (at CIN)
While Carlos Hyde was the lead back in Cleveland, they made him a workhorse then Chubb took over and saw 18.6 carries per game over the next 9 contests. It seems clear that he will be a 20 touch per game weapon for fantasy owners this year and should find his way into the end zone more often in what will be a much improved offense.
13 weeks ago
Leonard Fournette photo 7. Leonard Fournette RB - JAC (vs . IND)
Fournette has been . . . fine in his first three games, but has yet to find the end zone or really get going. But he's seen 20 targets already in the first three games, and that volume should keep his floor high, even when his rushing ability is held in check. Continue to consider him a borderline RB1 ROS.
11 weeks ago
Michael Thomas photo 8. Michael Thomas WR - NO (at CAR)
No one was more efficient with the targets they saw than Thomas last season. In fact, no one in NFL history has been that efficient. There is room for more, of course, if New Orleans decides to pepper him with targets, but they also don't throw much so that might just be wishful thinking.
13 weeks ago
Saquon Barkley photo 9. Saquon Barkley RB - NYG (vs . PHI)
If you have a bye for the first round of your fantasy playoffs, Barkley could very well be a league-winner. He'll play against the Dolphins and Redskins in the two games that matter most, two teams that have allowed plenty of production to the position. More importantly, they both rank in the top-three in regards to running back touches per game allowed. The Giants should also have all their playmakers on the field by this time, which will help detract some attention away from Barkley.
2 weeks ago
DeAndre Hopkins photo 10. DeAndre Hopkins WR - HOU (vs . TEN)
As of now, Hopkins is the consensus #1 receiver off the board. You certainly can't argue with his talent nor his recent production but there is reason to be concerned about his shoulder, however, as he started the preseason the PUP. Perhaps more concerning is the fact that both Will Fuller and Keke Coutee will both be healthy so his league-high target share may take a hit. He is still elite, but shouldn't exactly be a slam dunk at pick 6.
13 weeks ago
Tyreek Hill photo 11. Tyreek Hill WR - KC (vs . LAC)
Hill has looked just fine since returning despite playing largely with Matt Moore. He's a threat to hit a home run on any given play, so should remain a top-five receiver if Patrick Mahomes returns shortly as he is expected to.
5 weeks ago
Aaron Jones photo 12. Aaron Jones RB - GB (at DET)
While on the field, Jones was an elusive as any runner in the NFL. The issue, of course, was that Green Bay refused to use him like the three-down machine he can be. That may change with a new coach in town, but until we are certain he is a 300 touch guy, he will likely fall to the third round. Don't mistake that for meaning he doesn't have top 5 RB upside, however, because he most certainly does.
13 weeks ago
Josh Jacobs photo 13. Josh Jacobs RB - OAK (at DEN)
With what seems to be no competition for the job, most anticipate Jacobs to have a huge workload. That may be the case, but we never saw him handle those type of touches or anything close in college, and Jalen Richard likely isn't going away in the passing game. While Jacobs is a safe bet for RB2 production, it might be wise to temper expectations in this offense.
13 weeks ago
Davante Adams photo 14. Davante Adams WR - GB (at DET)
Adams continues to suffer from turf toe and likely won't return until November. With the Packers winning despite his absence, there is no reason for the Packers to rush him back. Be patient as an Adams owner, and hope for full health before he returns.
6 weeks ago
Travis Kelce photo 15. Travis Kelce TE - KC (vs . LAC)
Kelce scored the most fantasy points of any tight end in the last five seasons last year. He may shatter that clip this season and approach Gronk's enormous 2017 total of 331 PPR points if Tyreek Hill were to suffer an injury.. Kelce wasn't far off at 295 last year. If he can jump another 40 points, we'd be looking at the WR1 if he qualified for that possession. Kelce should continue to prove he was well worth a second-round pick this year.
10 weeks ago
Melvin Gordon photo 16. Melvin Gordon RB - LAC (at KC)
Gordon finally showed signs of life in Week 9 against the Packers, though he still averaged just four yards per carry. With Los Angeles looking to perhaps rely on the run more, Gordon should at least hopefully see the 20-plus touches he saw last week. If he does, he should be at worst a strong RB2 going forward.
4 weeks ago
Chris Godwin photo 17. Chris Godwin WR - TB (vs . ATL)
Chris Godwin has been magical this season as one of the top breakouts in fantasy football. He isn't as consistent week to week as someone like Michael Thomas, but you can guarantee that if drafts were today, he'd be gone by the end of the 2nd round. He is a clear-cut WR1 every week for the rest of the season.
1 week ago
Mike Evans photo 18. Mike Evans WR - TB (vs . ATL)
Evans has remarkably started his career with five consecutive 1,000 yard seasons. The touchdowns aren't consistent, but fantasy owners can rely on him to post plenty of points once again. The primary concern is that Chris Godwin and O.J. Howard may be good enough cut into his target share a bit, but Evans should still be drafted as a WR1.
13 weeks ago
Julio Jones photo 19. Julio Jones WR - ATL (at TB)
You can say DeAndre Hopkins is the world's most talented receiver and even that his QB is a better passer than Matt Ryan, but the fact of the matter is that Hopkins has never once had as many receiving yards as Julio has averaged over the last five seasons. We know exactly who Jones is and it's a top fantasy performer every year. If they ever start throwing him the ball in the Red Zone, look out for a historic season.
13 weeks ago
Mark Ingram photo 20. Mark Ingram RB - BAL (vs . PIT)
Ingram has been great in the Saints offense over the last few seasons but that does not mean he will fit well in a different offense, especially as a 30-year-old. Sure, the Ravens brought in Ingram but let's not forget that Gus Edwards was terrific to close the season and the Ravens also drafted the electric Justice Hill. Ingram certainly has RB2 potential, but this is shaping up to be a three-headed monster splitting the workload.
13 weeks ago
Chris Carson photo 21. Chris Carson RB - SEA (vs . SF)
Carson's fumble problems are strongly cutting into his season-long outlook. He has lost a fumble in each of his first three games and, after losing a critical one in Week 3 against the Saints that was returned for a touchdown, lost carries for much of the rest of the game to C.J. Prosise. Pete Carroll has given him a vote of confidence but even one more fumble could cost Carson his role as the main back for Seattle.
10 weeks ago
Amari Cooper photo 22. Amari Cooper WR - DAL (vs . WAS)
Cooper has put up some historical numbers to start his career despite playing in an awful offense that refused to throw him the ball. It was no wonder he exploded with a new offense and better quarterback despite learning the playbook on the fly. The ceiling is enormous in his first full season with Dallas but there is also quite a bit of unknown too, particularly his plantar fasciitis.
13 weeks ago
Le'Veon Bell photo 23. Le'Veon Bell RB - NYJ (at BUF)
Bell offered plenty of yards in Week 9 against Miami, but fantasy owners holding him hoping to reap the rewards of this meaty part of his schedule may be disappointed. The Jets' offense is abysmal, and not even Bell can overcome it. That said, if he receives the roughly 25 touches that he did in Week 9 going forward, he should still find his way to plenty of value, just perhaps not as much as his fantasy owners had hoped for.
4 weeks ago
Todd Gurley photo 24. Todd Gurley RB - LAR (vs . ARI)
Gurley has had a strange year, scoring a ton of touchdowns but lacking explosiveness and ceding significant work to the other running backs in the Rams offense. If you can capitalize on his touchdowns, then by all means, sell high. Otherwise, expect him to deliver RB2 value the rest of the way.
4 weeks ago
Tyler Lockett photo 25. Tyler Lockett WR - SEA (vs . SF)
Lockett had just 70 targets last year and before Baldwin came back, he was the secondary target behind Brandon Marshall. Lockett isn't primary weapon, nor will he likely become one. He is still a WR3, but is being vastly overdrafted with over optimistic expectations about his transition to an entirely different type of receiver.
13 weeks ago
Julian Edelman photo 26. Julian Edelman WR - NE (vs . MIA)
Those expecting Edelman to outperform his ADP might be in for a surprise as he has never finished higher than WR19 in fantasy. Part of this has to do with his inability to stay on the field and at 33 years old, reversing that tendency may prove a difficult task. He comes with reliability while healthy but perhaps with a price tag too steep.
13 weeks ago
D.J. Moore photo 27. D.J. Moore WR - CAR (vs . NO)
Moore is the de facto number one receiver in Carolina and has upside to blossom into a high-end WR2 if everything goes right this year. Much of it will depend on whether or not Cam Newton's shoulder truly is healthy.
13 weeks ago
Joe Mixon photo 28. Joe Mixon RB - CIN (vs . CLE)
Mixon's season has been a disaster, plain and simple. Between the Bengals' dreadful offensive line and the coaching staff's uninspired play-calling, he has essentially been relegated to only a borderline RB2. It's hard to drop someone with Mixon's talent, but you've probably got better options on your team at this point.
4 weeks ago
David Montgomery photo 29. David Montgomery RB - CHI (at MIN)
Jordan Howard is now gone after producing for fantasy owners despite lackluster efficiency. Many will take this to mean that the much more talented Montgomery will become a stud from day one, but Mike Davis is in town now too and Tarik Cohen isn't going anywhere so it might not happen quite so quickly.
13 weeks ago
Stefon Diggs photo 30. Stefon Diggs WR - MIN (vs . CHI)
I'd sell Stefon Diggs for Odell Beckham or Marlon Mack right now. Yes, he has been great lately but what in the world did you expect versus the Philly, Detroit and Washington? Those are three of the easiest matchups in the league and Thielen has been banged up. With his upcoming schedule, I'm expecting the production to return to the low-end WR2 range before long.
5 weeks ago
Lamar Jackson photo 31. Lamar Jackson QB - BAL (vs . PIT)
Jackson's passing ability has been questionable in recent weeks, but his incredible rushing floor keeps him as a top-three option in fantasy leagues. Since Week 1, he has at least 66 yards rushing or a rushing touchdown. While the passing stats will be hit or miss, he's a rock-solid option for outstanding production each week.
7 weeks ago
Cooper Kupp photo 32. Cooper Kupp WR - LAR (vs . ARI)
The idea for the fantasy playoffs should be to create as much consistency in your lineup as possible, especially when it comes to your WR1 and WR2 slots. While Kupp was posting top-tier numbers earlier in the year, it appears teams have caught up to the Rams' objective. Kupp's recent inconsistency has him moving down the rankings. While you shouldn't simply give him away, you should weigh in the fact that he will play the Cowboys and 49ers in Weeks 15 and 16, two of the tougher matchups for wide receivers.
2 weeks ago
Phillip Lindsay photo 33. Phillip Lindsay RB - DEN (vs . OAK)
The Broncos were serious about giving Lindsay more work ahead of Royce Freeman. That'll give us the confidence needed to trade for Lindsay with their schedule in the fantasy playoffs. The Texans are no longer an elite run defense, and they got even worse when they lost J.J. Watt. Then you have the Chiefs who've allowed the most fantasy points to the position. To close it out, you have the Lions, who rank in the bottom-three run defenses in the league.
5 days ago
Keenan Allen photo 34. Keenan Allen WR - LAC (at KC)
After a hot start, Allen has fallen off dramatically, though he has seen double digit targets in each of the last two games (Weeks 7 and 8). The Chargers offense, playing with a decimated offensive line, simply looks out of sync, and Allen himself isn't blameless. In the end, given his pedigree and the consistency of the targets, he still makes no worse than a solid WR2 in half- and full-PPR leagues.
5 weeks ago
Devin Singletary photo 35. Devin Singletary RB - BUF (vs . NYJ)
He's been seeing an increased role in the offense over the last month, but it's time to get out while you can because he's going to struggle when it matters most. If you're looking forward to the fantasy playoffs and want to win a fantasy championship, he's not likely going to help you get it. He's going to play against the Ravens, Steelers, and Patriots in Weeks 14-16. You're better off removing yourself from the situation.
2 weeks ago
Sony Michel photo 36. Sony Michel RB - NE (vs . MIA)
If you're in it for the long haul and made the playoffs, Michel is a prime trade target. The playoff schedule is the Chiefs (30th), Bengals (31st), and Bills (20th), who are all matchups to target with running backs. We also know the Patriots tend to ramp-up their run-game towards the end of the season in order to keep the pass-catchers healthy for the postseason.
5 days ago
Allen Robinson photo 37. Allen Robinson WR - CHI (at MIN)
Robinson may have disappointed last year but let's remember that he was coming into a new offense with limited pre-season work due to his significant injury. He missed some time but still led the team in targets and may bounceback to his former WR1 self with a fully healthy season in this up-and-coming offense.
13 weeks ago
George Kittle photo 38. George Kittle TE - SF (at SEA)
Not only did Kittle receive for more yards than any tight end in football history last year, but he did it with Nick Mullens and CJ Beathard as his quarterbacks. Enter Jimmy Garoppolo and we might see an even better season. Granted, the 49ers have some weapons in the passing game, but among them, Kittle is still the number one.
10 weeks ago
Odell Beckham Jr. photo 39. Odell Beckham Jr. WR - CLE (at CIN)
Beckham has just two 100-yard games so far this season, and a mere 34 receptions through five games. It's not the easiest schedule for the Browns, and with the offense struggling to get going, it's looking more and more likely that Beckham will be one of the bigger busts of the season. Still, he has as much play-making ability as any receiver in the league, so be wary of selling too low.
5 weeks ago
Hunter Henry photo 40. Hunter Henry TE - LAC (at KC)
Henry has immediately vaulted into the discussion of top-five tight ends in fantasy football, as he's seen both the targets and the yardage to make him one of the rare, truly reliable players at the position. The Chargers may struggle on offense, but Henry should continue to get his going forward.
5 weeks ago
D.J. Chark photo 41. D.J. Chark WR - JAC (vs . IND)
Perhaps no player's stock has risen more dramatically this season than Chark's, who has not only become Gardner Minshew's favorite target, but has become one of the most reliable starters in fantasy. He's scored five touchdowns through his first five games and has 27 catches on 37 targets. There's little reason to expect things to slow down going forward, so buy him as a solid borderline WR2.
8 weeks ago
Courtland Sutton photo 42. Courtland Sutton WR - DEN (vs . OAK)
Sutton has had a very solid year overall, but the excitement after the Emmanuel Sanders trades now looks unwarranted. His first game without Sanders was his typical effort, and now Joe Flacco may be done for the season. Sutton sees the targets and is essentially the only game in town, so he's a surefire starter. But there's less optimism with him now than there had been immediately after the Sanders trade.
5 weeks ago
Zach Ertz photo 43. Zach Ertz TE - PHI (at NYG)
Ertz was spectacular again last season even outscoring George Kittle in his record-breaking season. There is no doubt that Ertz will produce as long as he stays on the field, and especially with Carson Wentz back. With that said, it seems unlikely that Kittle will catch just 5 touchdowns this season with Jimmy G throwing passes so for now, Ertz sits at the end of that first tier of tight ends.
10 weeks ago
Kenny Golladay photo 44. Kenny Golladay WR - DET (vs . GB)
Golladay did have a mini breakout last season but it came while Marvin Jones was shelved and Golden Tate was playing in Philly. Now that he isn't the only competent receiver on the depth chart, his volume share should plummet. He is still a WR2, but be careful with the extent of your expectations.
13 weeks ago
James Conner photo 45. James Conner RB - PIT (at BAL)
Conner injured his AC joint in Week 8 against the Dolphins and missed the game against the Colts. He's likely to miss another week recovering, which should leave Jaylen Samuels in the driver's seat for the Steelers. Conner has battled injuries on and off all season long, but when healthy, has delivered quality fantasy performances. There's not much to do as a Conner owner but hold him and wait for him to recover, which should be within two weeks.
4 weeks ago
Austin Ekeler photo 46. Austin Ekeler RB - LAC (at KC)
Ekeler has still been useful despite Melvin Gordon coming back, though much of his value has come from his involvement in the passing game. No longer the RB1 he appeared to be at the start of the season, he still carries plenty of value in half- and full-PPR leagues as a reliable starting option.
4 weeks ago
Miles Sanders photo 47. Miles Sanders RB - PHI (at NYG)
The Eagles re-signed Darren Sproles, acquired Jordan Howard and still have several other running backs of relevance on their depth chart. Peterson is known for splitting the workload among his running backs even when he had Jay Ajayi on the roster. If you think Sanders is going to be the exception to the rule, you will likely end up disappointed even though he is so talented.
13 weeks ago
Devante Parker photo 48. Devante Parker WR - MIA (at NE)
Another week has passed, and another week Parker has amassed 55-plus yards. He's now done that in 10-of-12 games this year, something only Michael Thomas, Courtland Sutton, and Parker can say. Crazy, right? His remaining schedule is a plus, too. He'll play the Jets, Giants, and Bengals during the fantasy playoffs. He should be considered a low-end WR2.
5 days ago
John Brown photo 49. John Brown WR - BUF (vs . NYJ)
It may be time to cash in your Brown shares before they lose even more value. He's been among the most consistent receivers in all of fantasy, but he has the worst remaining schedule among receivers, and it's not even close. His schedule consists of the Ravens, Steelers, and Patriots. There's not a single plus-matchup in those games. He's also finished with less than 40 yards in each of his last two games, as the schedule has gone south extremely quick.
5 days ago
Devonta Freeman photo 50. Devonta Freeman RB - ATL (at TB)
The Falcons have been banged up the last two years including Freeman himself but don't be surprised if this offensive line surges forward this year with all the talent they have. If that happens, Freeman could explode back into the top 10 fantasy running backs as we saw in 2015, 2016 and 2017 with his fantasy points per game.
13 weeks ago
Calvin Ridley photo 51. Calvin Ridley WR - ATL (at TB)
Ridley has been inconsistent this season, and has admitted to struggling in zone coverage. But Mohamed Sanu moving to the Patriots opens up a spot in the slot for Ridley, which greatly enhances his value. Matt Ryan's injury is concerning, but overall, move Ridley up your board with the Sanu move.
6 weeks ago
Patrick Mahomes photo 52. Patrick Mahomes QB - KC (vs . LAC)
As crazy as it sounds, you may want to sell Mahomes before the fantasy playoffs. The matchups don't get much worse, as he'll play against the Patriots in Week 14, Broncos in Week 15, and Bears in Week 16. Each one of those teams rank in the top-seven against fantasy quarterbacks. Those three teams combined have allowed one quarterback (Lamar Jackson) to finish better than the QB8. While Mahomes may be able to overcome one or maybe even two of the matchups, it's asking a lot to get elite numbers in these matchups.
5 days ago
Marlon Mack photo 53. Marlon Mack RB - IND (at JAC)
Now that Andrew Luck is retired, most expect Mack to be on the wrong end of negative game scripts, but the Colts have insisted that he will be on the field on third downs like he was as a rookie. If that is the case, Mack still has RB1 potential to go with a safe floor thanks to an incredible offensive line ahead of him.
13 weeks ago
Kenyan Drake photo 54. Kenyan Drake RB - ARI (at LAR)
Drake has been traded to the Cardinals, a surprising move given the Cardinals' place in the standings and the presence of David Johnson. Despite having only a few days to prepare, Drake will likely be the primary ball carrier in Week 9 on Thursday against the 49ers. His long-term value will depend entirely on David Johnson's health.
5 weeks ago
Adam Thielen photo 55. Adam Thielen WR - MIN (vs . CHI)
Thielen aggravated his hamstring injury early against the Chiefs, and will almost certainly miss Week 10 against the Cowboys. With a bye in Week 12, the Vikings could look to play it safe and hold Thielen out for several weeks. Although that would hurt his fantasy owners, it would obviously be preferable to Thielen trying to return while hobbled.
4 weeks ago
Robert Woods photo 56. Robert Woods WR - LAR (vs . ARI)
Woods ends a six-man third-tier of fantasy receivers before a huge drop-off to the fourth tier. It might not feel as sexy as some other picks in the fourth or fifth round, but there is something to be said for his safety week to week and year-long in this Rams' machine of an offense.
13 weeks ago
Tevin Coleman photo 57. Tevin Coleman RB - SF (at SEA)
Coleman looked to be taking his game to an entirely new level with his four-touchdown performance against the Panthers, but he laid an egg against the Cardinals in Week 9. In the end, he'll rarely receive more than 50% of the running back touches in San Francisco, but given the strength of the team's offense, he should still finish as an RB2 most weeks.
4 weeks ago
Russell Wilson photo 58. Russell Wilson QB - SEA (vs . SF)
Wilson is playing at an MVP level right now, completing 72.5% of his passes and accounting for 17 touchdowns. With a defense behind him that is far weaker than usual, Wilson has needed to generate plenty of points on offense. That's led to a ton of fantasy production, and Wilson being a top-five option for the rest of the season.
7 weeks ago
Michael Gallup photo 59. Michael Gallup WR - DAL (vs . WAS)
Gallup started the season hot before missing two games with a meniscus issue, but he came back strong against the Packers in Week 5 with seven catches for 113 yards and a touchdown. There's little reason to doubt Gallup when healthy at this point - Kellen Moore's offense and Dak Prescott's solid play makes him an excellent option at receiver for every fantasy team, and the ride should continue to keep going.
8 weeks ago
Carlos Hyde photo 60. Carlos Hyde RB - HOU (vs . TEN)
Hyde continues to garner the bulk of the running back touches in Houston, and has looked far more effective than anyone could have expected. He's a zero in the passing game, making him far less valuable in half- and full-PPR leagues. But in standard formats, he's someone you can start weekly without much concern.
4 weeks ago
Mark Andrews photo 61. Mark Andrews TE - BAL (vs . PIT)
After topping 100 yards receiving in each of his first two games, Andrews has come back down to earth a bit in his last three, totaling just 91 yards overall. But he's seen at least seven targets in each game and scored three touchdowns, and in the tight end landscape, that makes him a borderline superstar. Start him each and every week without hesitation.
8 weeks ago
Jarvis Landry photo 62. Jarvis Landry WR - CLE (at CIN)
Landry saw 149 targets last year and did next to nothing with them. Now that Odell Beckham is in town, Landry should become nothing more than a weekly flex play.
13 weeks ago
Kareem Hunt photo 63. Kareem Hunt RB - CLE (at CIN)
Yes, Hunt has a terrific season from a fantasy perspective last year, but that has always been the case with Andy Reid running backs. Hunt may be worth nothing outside of that, and even if he is, that doesn't mean he will unseat Nick Chubb when he comes back three months into the season. This should be a hard pass in the 10th round for fantasy owners.
13 weeks ago
Derrius Guice photo 64. Derrius Guice RB - WAS (at DAL)
With Guice now back with the team, there is a chance he pops up as the starter in the coming weeks, but with the way Adrian Peterson has been playing, it seems unlikely and with a timeshare being the most reasonable scenario.
3 weeks ago
Deshaun Watson photo 65. Deshaun Watson QB - HOU (vs . TEN)
Neither Will Fuller or Keke Coutee has done enough early on to give Watson owners hope that he can catch and potentially pass Mahomes this season. Rather, it seems that he is merely at the top of the second-tier of fantasy QBs for the rest of the season.
10 weeks ago
Darren Waller photo 66. Darren Waller TE - OAK (at DEN)
Waller has been one of the best surprises in football, as he's offered some semblance of reliability at an unreliable position. His only negative is the fact that he has yet to score a touchdown, but so long as he keeps seeing the high volume of targets and piling on the receptions, they will come soon enough. He's one of the few tight ends you can simply leave in your lineup.
8 weeks ago
James White photo 67. James White RB - NE (vs . MIA)
White finished as an RB1 last season and now the offense has fewer weapons in the passing game and a banged up starting running back. It isn't crazy to think White could end up back in that territory in 2019 and if he doesn't, he is a safe bet to finish top 30 thanks to his receiving abilities.
13 weeks ago
Jamaal Williams photo 68. Jamaal Williams RB - GB (at DET)
Williams continues to eat into Aaron Jones' touches but, for the first time in a long time, that's not a negative. Jones continues to put up huge numbers, while Williams has scored four touchdowns in his last three games. Williams has earned a start now as an RB3/Flex play, and so long as the Packers continue to rely heavily on the run, he should see plenty of volume.
5 weeks ago
Christian Kirk photo 69. Christian Kirk WR - ARI (at LAR)
Kirk is likely to start every game in Kingsbury's new quick-paced offense that may afford the Cardinals 75 snaps per game. Assuming Murray is even a moderately competent passer, that could make Kirk a WR3 or even WR2 if everything clicks.
13 weeks ago
T.Y. Hilton photo 70. T.Y. Hilton WR - IND (at JAC)
Hilton's calf injury is going to keep him out of action for at least a few weeks. The veteran has had a productive year overall despite battling leg injuries for much of it. Expect him to return by Week 12, in time for the fantasy playoffs.
4 weeks ago
Ronald Jones II photo 71. Ronald Jones II RB - TB (vs . ATL)
We've played this game before and it isn't fun. Jones looks phenomenal, gets a lot of touches and we expect he has finally secured the alpha dog role in the Bucs backfield only to find out it was another diabolical trick by Bruce Arians. While that may be the case, it is impossible to ignore an extremely talented back who just saw 20 touches. The upside alone for a player like that makes him well worth half of your FAAB budget or the #1 waiver priority.
4 weeks ago
Bo Scarbrough photo 72. Bo Scarbrough RB - DET (vs . GB)
If you can find someone in your league who's hurting at running back, start sending them offers that include them getting Scarbrough. He's a two-down back who's playing alongside a third-string quarterback. Looking ahead, he's going to play the Vikings, Bucs, and Broncos. None of those matchups scream "must-start" especially those during the fantasy playoffs.
5 days ago
Rashaad Penny photo 73. Rashaad Penny RB - SEA (vs . SF)
Many are going to be clamoring for Tra Carson after his surprise start over Ty Johnson, but he is in a timeshare in a bad running offense and gets a bad matchup this week. Penny, meanwhile, is one injury away from becoming exactly what we've seen from Latavius Murray the last two weeks. Not only that, but he is a fringe flex play most weeks too.
5 weeks ago
Latavius Murray photo 74. Latavius Murray RB - NO (at CAR)
Murray filled in brilliantly for the injured Alvin Kamara in Weeks 7 and 8, but Kamara should return after the bye in Week 10. Chances are, Murray's performance has earned him a larger role than he saw earlier in the season, and he should settle into the Mark Ingram complement to Kamara. That's a running back who you can start most weeks.
5 weeks ago
Will Fuller photo 75. Will Fuller WR - HOU (vs . TEN)
Fuller injured his hamstring against the Colts and is set to miss several weeks. He provided one enormous game but otherwise, was incredibly hit or miss. While he should come back in time for the fantasy playoffs, the initial estimates suggest that the injury is a multiple-week one. Make other arrangements if you own Fuller.

Marvin Jones photo 76. Marvin Jones WR - DET (vs . GB)
Jones continues to alternate dominant performances with awful ones, but such is the life of a WR3. With no running game to speak of, the Lions should continue to throw early and often, which should lead to plenty of games with big performances. Fantasy owners will just need to ride out the ups and downs of the season with Jones, and not try to pick the matchups. He has a knack for succeeding in the worst possible scenarios.

Damien Williams photo 77. Damien Williams RB - KC (vs . LAC)
Williams' season has been disastrous, but it appears he might finally provide the most value right when fantasy owners need him. With a bad LeSean McCoy fumble opening the door for Williams, the veteran shined in Week 9 against the Dolphins, highlighted by a 91-yard touchdown run. He'll still split touches with McCoy and perhaps others, but overall, it's possible he can become a reliable RB2 once again.

Aaron Rodgers photo 78. Aaron Rodgers QB - GB (at DET)
Rodgers struggled against the Bears, Vikings and Broncos, but what did you expect? He bounced back versus the Eagles in Week 4, passing for over 400 yards, and while that won't be a weekly thing, it seems clear that he is just fine and still a clear top-10 fantasy QB.
10 weeks ago
D.K. Metcalf photo 79. D.K. Metcalf WR - SEA (vs . SF)
Metcalf's targets and receptions have dipped significantly since his first two games, but he remains a red zone threat, as he showed against the Rams. He'll never pile on huge yards, however, so he's more of a touchdown or bust Flex at this stage in his young career.
8 weeks ago
Tyler Boyd photo 80. Tyler Boyd WR - CIN (vs . CLE)
Boyd just signed a four-year extension with the Bengals which means Zac Taylor must have big plans for him. A.J. Green is still the number one and will be back within a handful of weeks and Andy Dalton can only create so many fantasy points, but Boyd is a strong bet to finish as a WR3.
13 weeks ago
LeSean McCoy photo 81. LeSean McCoy RB - KC (vs . LAC)
The Bills unsurprisingly moved on from McCoy's enormous contract so he is currently a free agent but don't expect that to last for long. He is still talented and can be a strong backup for a team like the Jets, or perhaps the Texans or Bucs turn to him as their starter. Don't cut him or stop drafting him yet.
13 weeks ago
Kyler Murray photo 82. Kyler Murray QB - ARI (at LAR)
Murray has been incredibly impressive with his passing ability early on (once he got past the first half of the first game). He has yet to run the ball at all, a surprising development that keeps him from moving up the ranks. He continues to have perhaps more upside than any other quarterback, however, and should remain owned in nearly all leagues for that reason alone.
11 weeks ago
Curtis Samuel photo 83. Curtis Samuel WR - CAR (vs . NO)
Samuel has a ton of talent, but the Panthers with Kyle Allen have morphed into more of a game-managing type of offense. Rarely are there big shots, as Carolina looks to control the clock and win with their defense. Samuel has seen at least six targets in each game since Week 1, but for now, it's hard to trust him in a fantasy lineup.
8 weeks ago
Jameis Winston photo 84. Jameis Winston QB - TB (vs . ATL)
It's always worrisome rolling with Winston with how volatile he is as a real-life quarterback, but that hasn't mattered to his fantasy numbers. He's finished as a top-16 quarterback in each of his last 10 games, including six top-10 finishes. His playoff schedule consists of the Colts, Lions, and Texans. There aren't many quarterbacks with a better schedule for the remainder of the season. On top of that, the Bucs will continue to evaluate whether Winston will get a new contract this offseason.

Alshon Jeffery photo 85. Alshon Jeffery WR - PHI (at NYG)
Besides the stark gap in ADP, there isn't much of a difference between Alshon and Julian Edelman. Both have missed chunks of time in most season but have performed when on the field. In Alshon's case, it has resulted in three seasons than Edelman has ever produced. There is, of course, injury risk, but he is the epitome of a value pick when you can wait to rounds to add him instead of Edelman.
13 weeks ago
Dak Prescott photo 86. Dak Prescott QB - DAL (vs . WAS)
Prescott has been incredible in the early going, and whether it's the schedule or Kellen Moore's influence as the offensive coordinator, he has been one of the biggest risers for fantasy quarterbacks. Much of this looks legitimate, so consider Prescott a guaranteed starter until further notice.
11 weeks ago
Matt Ryan photo 87. Matt Ryan QB - ATL (at TB)
Not only has Ryan struggled since returning from his ankle injury, as he's now finished three of the four games averaging 6.2 or less yards per attempt, but he has a brutal matchup with the 49ers smack dab in the middle of the fantasy playoffs. He would be a recommended sit in that game, so why carry him if you have fantasy championship aspirations?
5 days ago
Golden Tate photo 88. Golden Tate WR - NYG (vs . PHI)
Tate has 90+ receptions in four the last 5 seasons and was on pace to do it again last year before the trade. He did that with Marvin Jones and Kenny Golladay on the roster so don't be surprised when he is a top 30 rest of season wideout with Daniel Jones now under center in New York.

Jamison Crowder photo 89. Jamison Crowder WR - NYJ (at BUF)
You won't want to start Crowder this week against the Patriots, but he can be a WR4 after that considering Sam Darnold is back and in their two games together, Crowder has 26 targets.
7 weeks ago
Drew Brees photo 90. Drew Brees QB - NO (at CAR)
Brees returned against the Cardinals and looked healthy, throwing for more than 300 yards and three touchdowns. Five of his remaining seven games are indoors, and although he's no longer quite the elite fantasy quarterback he was in his hey-day, he's a must-start option going forward.
5 weeks ago
Josh Allen photo 91. Josh Allen QB - BUF (vs . NYJ)
He's shown improvement in a lot of ways this year, but his upcoming playoff schedule might be the worst in all of football. He'll host the Ravens, then go on the road to play the Steelers and Patriots in Weeks 15 and 16. If you were to talk about matchups you don't want your quarterback to have, these three teams would make the list.
2 weeks ago
JuJu Smith-Schuster photo 92. JuJu Smith-Schuster WR - PIT (at BAL)
There is no doubt about it that JuJu was the best slot receiver in football last year. Part of that, of course, had to do with Antonio Brown drawing loads of attention, and it remains to a question how he will perform outside versus stronger cornerback matchups. The target share is expected to improve but that assumes Big Ben again throws a league-high 675 passes which seems unlikely.
13 weeks ago
Emmanuel Sanders photo 93. Emmanuel Sanders WR - SF (at SEA)
Sanders has been traded to the 49ers, and immediately becomes the top receiving option on the team. The 49ers have attempted the second-fewest passes in the league, and it will likely take time for Sanders to learn the offense. Still, given his talent and the upgrade in offenses from the Broncos to the 49ers, the move only helps Sanders' value.
6 weeks ago
Matt Breida photo 94. Matt Breida RB - SF (at SEA)
Like the dinosaurs in Jurassic Park, life finds a way with Breida, who is set to take back the lead role in the San Francisco backfield after Tevin Coleman's ankle injury. Raheem Mostert ran well against the Bucs after Coleman left the game, but Breida has shown before what he can do in this offense. He should be a reliable Flex play for as long as Coleman is out, even with sharing carries with Mostert.
12 weeks ago
Jack Doyle photo 95. Jack Doyle TE - IND (at JAC)
Eric Ebron has taken a back seat in the past two weeks in terms of snaps and targets to Doyle. Whether or not that keeps up is anyone's guess, but frankly, you could play both of them against the Dolphins in Week 10.
4 weeks ago
Mike Williams photo 96. Mike Williams WR - LAC (at KC)
Williams was insanely efficient despite being the 4th target. With Tyrell Williams gone and the threat of Melvin Gordon holding out, Williams could surge forward, perhaps all the way into WR1 territory. There is some risk here, but the upside is spectacular.
13 weeks ago
Evan Engram photo 97. Evan Engram TE - NYG (vs . PHI)
Engram was injured for part of the season but when he was healthy, he was solid once again, ranking 7th among all tight ends with 9.4 half-PPR points per game. The draw in Engram, of course, is the fact that Odell Beckham left in free agency, and while he has always been great, Golden Tate fills in and is also a target hog. When Engram had so many targets two years ago, Roger Lewis, was the #2 wideout so it is a much different scenario now than it was then.
10 weeks ago
Jared Cook photo 98. Jared Cook TE - NO (at CAR)
We knew Drew Brees' offense is fantasy gold for tight ends, but Brees is now hurt and we saw Cook with Green Bay and Aaron Rodgers in 2016. He did nothing, so perhaps even Brees' return won't lock him into the fantasy top 12. Additionally, Cook was TE15 in 2017 before his big 2018 season which was fueled by the fact that Jordy Nelson was their #1 receiver. In New Orleans, he will be the #3 or #4 option at best so perhaps we should be careful with our expectations.
10 weeks ago
Royce Freeman photo 99. Royce Freeman RB - DEN (vs . OAK)
Freeman has run better than Phillip Lindsay through the first two games, and has earned an even bigger share of the running back touches. But it will take an injury to Lindsay for Freeman to have regular fantasy value. As a stash, and as a player who can help you through bye weeks, however, he's a fine option.
11 weeks ago
Terry McLaurin photo 100. Terry McLaurin WR - WAS (at DAL)
McLaurin has been the lone bright spot this season for the Redskins, and even his 3-51 line against the Patriots was a positive, with Colt McCoy as his quarterback and a ton of defensive focus on him. It's hard to be even remotely excited about anyone in Washington, but McLaurin remains a player who you can start at wide receiver most weeks, particularly in deeper formats.
8 weeks ago
Marquise Brown photo 101. Marquise Brown WR - BAL (vs . PIT)
Brown has missed several weeks with an ankle injury, but is hopeful to return against the Patriots. When he does, he should immediately return as a WR3 with upside, though he's likely to see plenty of boom or bust weeks with Lamar Jackson's inconsistent throwing.
5 weeks ago
Brandin Cooks photo 102. Brandin Cooks WR - LAR (vs . ARI)
Cooks suffered his second concussion of the season in London against the Bengals, and that is never a good sign for a player. With a bye week to recover, Cooks may be ready to go in Week 10, but it's possible that his repeated concussions may threaten his availability going forward. Either way, his year has been immensely disappointing, as the Rams' offense simply can't get going. With little to get excited about, move Cooks down your board rest of season.
5 weeks ago
Kirk Cousins photo 103. Kirk Cousins QB - MIN (vs . CHI)
Cousins had a great game in Week 6 but it was against a pass funnel Philly defense that required them to throw more often than Minnesota typically does. That should go back to the norm this week in Detroit so Cousins isn't streamer-worthy this time around.
7 weeks ago
Deebo Samuel photo 104. Deebo Samuel WR - SF (at SEA)
Samuel has slowed down enough over the past month that we can't start him in any matchup for now, but he still has WR3 upside if he starts seeing consistent snaps and targets for San Francisco.
4 weeks ago
Sammy Watkins photo 105. Sammy Watkins WR - KC (vs . LAC)
Watkins added a hamstring injury to his shoulder woes in Week 5 against the Colts, and appears likely to miss at least a little time. Outside of Week 1, when few people were starting him, Watkins had been a major disappointment despite the absence of Tyreek Hill. Now with injury concerns of his own, Watkins is still a rosterable option, but likely not one that you'll be able to or want to start anytime soon.
8 weeks ago
David Johnson photo 106. David Johnson RB - ARI (at LAR)
Johnson will almost certainly miss Week 9 with his ankle injury, and the trade for Kenyan Drake puts his long-term availability in question. For now, there's not much you can do as a Johnson owner. You can't sell him low unless someone is wildly optimistic on his injury concerns. When healthy, he should continue to dominate the touches, even with Kenyan Drake in fold.
5 weeks ago
Adrian Peterson photo 107. Adrian Peterson RB - WAS (at DAL)
Peterson was inactive in Week 1 but with Derrius Guice's injury, he should have the starting job to himself for the foreseeable future. Despite his advanced age, Peterson was a strong runner for the first half of last season, and could have some left in the tank, enough to make him a short-term play for desperate fantasy owners.
12 weeks ago
Tom Brady photo 108. Tom Brady QB - NE (vs . MIA)
There's no decline with Brady right now, and even with Antonio Brown no longer with the Patriots, there's little cause for concern. A pillow soft schedule and still the best coaching staff in the league should mean that Brady is an easy QB-1 ROS.
11 weeks ago
Dallas Goedert photo 109. Dallas Goedert TE - PHI (at NYG)
If Goedert is not the top tight end pick up of the week, he is awfully close. Add supreme talent and plenty of targets to a cake rest of the season schedule and we've got ourselves a top 10 rest of season tight end.
2 weeks ago
Tarik Cohen photo 110. Tarik Cohen RB - CHI (at MIN)
Cohen got nary a carry in Week 1 against the Packers, instead running routes out of the slot almost exclusively. He'll likely see some more work in the backfield but with Mike Davis also cutting into David Montgomery's role, there isn't that much room for Cohen at this point. He's certainly worth owning in PPR formats, but be wary about starting him for the foreseeable future.
12 weeks ago
Carson Wentz photo 111. Carson Wentz QB - PHI (at NYG)
His offensive line and receivers are now healthy, and he has two of the best matchups in football over the next two weeks. The Eagles will host the Giants and then go on the road to play against the Redskins. Those matchups have produced top-10 performances more than half the time in 2019. Wentz might get hot at the right time.
5 days ago
Sterling Shepard photo 112. Sterling Shepard WR - NYG (vs . PHI)
Shepard is back in the concussion protocol and is likely to miss the Giants' game in Week 6 against the Patriots. Even when he's healthy, the fact that he ran so many routes on the perimeter instead of out of the slot with the return of Golden Tate certainly puts a damper on his ROS outlook.
8 weeks ago
Jordan Howard photo 113. Jordan Howard RB - PHI (at NYG)
Howard had a monstrous day against the Packers in Week 4, scoring three touchdowns. He's earned himself a much bigger role, perhaps the stronger side of the split with Miles Sanders in the Philadelphia backfield. He'll take what is given to him, and doesn't have Sanders' upside. But for now, he remains playable in a pinch.
9 weeks ago
Ryan Tannehill photo 114. Ryan Tannehill QB - TEN (at HOU)
Since taking over in Week 7, the Titans quarterback has more fantasy points per game than Russell Wilson, Deshuan Watson, Kyler Murray and Patrick Mahomes. Oh, and he did despite contests against the Chargers, Panthers, Chiefs and Colts, all of which have strong secondaries. As I mentioned with Brown, the Titans have a cake matchup this week in Oakland and as a result, I'd rather start him than Dak versus the Bears, Kyler versus Pittsburgh or Matt Ryan against Carolina.
3 days ago
Robby Anderson photo 115. Robby Anderson WR - NYJ (at BUF)
Anderson has let fantasy owners down in several great matchups lately, but if you want to chase a home run, he's got three more great matchups in a row coming up including this week at home against Oakland.
2 weeks ago
Tyrell Williams photo 116. Tyrell Williams WR - OAK (at DEN)
Williams continues to deal with plantar fasciitis, but is practicing heading into Week 8 and may return to the field. When healthy, he's a viable WR3 play, though his injury seems likely to linger, pushing his ceiling down a bit.
6 weeks ago
Raheem Mostert photo 117. Raheem Mostert RB - SF (at SEA)
Like many of the other names on this list, there is some risk, but we are talking about what is essentially the #1 running back for one of the top running offenses in football. You may not like the matchup versus New Orleans, but last week's matchup against the Ravens wasn't so hot either and he still went for 154 yards and a score.
3 days ago
Duke Johnson photo 118. Duke Johnson RB - HOU (vs . TEN)
With Lamar Miller out for the season, Duke is the favorite to lead this team in touches. They brought in Carlos Hyde via trade and while you may think he is a lock to be the early-down back, Duke can handle a three-down workload as we saw in college when he touched the ball 22 times per game. He comes with both risk and upside, making him a worthwhile mid-round pick.
13 weeks ago
Dede Westbrook photo 119. Dede Westbrook WR - JAC (vs . IND)
Westbrook was the number one receiver for Bortles last year in Jacksonville and appears to be the favorite for that role again, but with a major offensive line upgrade and perhaps a QB upgrade in Foles too. With that said, his upside is limited in this offense.
13 weeks ago
Mohamed Sanu photo 120. Mohamed Sanu WR - NE (vs . MIA)
Sanu was having a decent, though inconsistent, season with the Falcons, but now moves to the Patriots, who reportedly have coveted him for some time. It should take him some time to get up to speed but with Josh Gordon moving to IR, there are plenty of targets available. Sanu may start slow, but he should offer WR3 value once he gets going.
6 weeks ago
James Washington photo 121. James Washington WR - PIT (at BAL)
If Juju Smith-Schuster comes back, Washington probably wouldn't be startable even in the flex, but Washington should be worth picking up just in case Juju misses another game. He'd be ranked among the top 40 wideouts with a great matchup versus Arizona.
3 days ago
Alexander Mattison photo 122. Alexander Mattison RB - MIN (vs . CHI)
Mattison is not only the best pickup of the week; he is the best pickup all season long. He should have already been owned, but if he isn't, spend every dime of your FAAB on this future league-winner.
3 days ago
Jimmy Garoppolo photo 123. Jimmy Garoppolo QB - SF (at SEA)
Garoppolo has been a big reason for the 49ers' undefeated start to the season, but it hasn't translated into much fantasy success. He's thrown for just 1,163 yards and has a 7:5 TD-to-INT ratio. With the 49ers' strong defense, there's just not much need for Garoppolo to air it out much, making him an option in only two-quarterback leagues.
7 weeks ago
A.J. Brown photo 124. A.J. Brown WR - TEN (at HOU)
He may be inconsistent but Brown has as much weekly upside as anyone else on waivers this week. He has four games with 80+ yards despite only seeing more than 5 targets twice all season. Fortunately, his role in the offense has grown since Ryan Tannehill took over under center. And most importantly, he has tremendous matchups in both Week 14 and 15 versus the Raiders and Texans. He will be a strong boom or bust flex option in both contests, much like a Will Fuller or Marquise Brown.
3 days ago
Frank Gore photo 125. Frank Gore RB - BUF (vs . NYJ)
The biggest mistake fantasy owners can make this time of year is to keep dead-weight players on their bench. There is no situation or injury that would push Gore into top-15 territory. Instead of rostering him, add someone like Rashaad Penny, Tony Pollard, or Alexander Mattison.
3 weeks ago
Darius Slayton photo 126. Darius Slayton WR - NYG (vs . PHI)
Slayton has been exceptional when he sees targets, and boy did he see them in Week 10 before the Giants' bye, but now Sterling Shepard is expected to return plus they've got two rough matchups so Slayton can be comfortably passed up unless you want an upside stash.
2 weeks ago
Peyton Barber photo 127. Peyton Barber RB - TB (vs . ATL)
Barber may have scored two touchdowns but as far as we are aware, Ronald Jones is still the starter moving forward. The only reason Barber got so much work was because of the game script. He is best off left on waivers this week.
3 days ago
Jared Goff photo 128. Jared Goff QB - LAR (vs . ARI)
Goff threw for an incredible 78 yards against the 49ers after throwing for nearly 1,000 yards combined over his previous two games. It doesn't take a football analyst to realize that he's simply not playing anywhere close to his 2018 level, and more injuries on the Rams' offensive line is a bad sign going forward. Goff has fallen out of the QB1 conversation, and should now be considered just a bye-week filler until further notice.
7 weeks ago
Baker Mayfield photo 129. Baker Mayfield QB - CLE (at CIN)
Mayfield had an extremely disappointing 2019 debut, throwing interceptions on three consecutive drives in the second half against the Titans. It was a bad game, without question, but don't let that color your long-term view of Mayfield. He'll still be an outstanding fantasy quarterback if healthy.
12 weeks ago
Austin Hooper photo 130. Austin Hooper TE - ATL (at TB)
Hooper has now scored in three straight games and is simply having a marvelous season. Atlanta may be in the midst of an awful season, but that hardly matters for their offense, which continues to play from behind and maximize its receiving options. With few reliable tight ends, Hooper is extremely valuable this year, and there's no reason to expect it to end.
5 weeks ago
Jaylen Samuels photo 131. Jaylen Samuels RB - PIT (at BAL)
He not only needs an injury to James Conner to get a role in the offense, but he now needs an injury to Benny Snell as well in order to become fantasy relevant. He's not someone you're going to trust in the fantasy playoffs.
5 days ago
Jacob Hollister photo 132. Jacob Hollister TE - SEA (vs . SF)
Hollister will be outside the top 12 tight ends this week because of his matchup and the same may be true for Week 15, but if you can afford to do it, you may want to stash him for an incredible Week 16 matchup versus the Cardinals.
3 days ago
Anthony Miller photo 133. Anthony Miller WR - CHI (at MIN)
Miller has finally gotten on the field for the majority of the Bears' snaps over the last three weeks and he has been even better than his breakout rookie season. Don't be surprised if he finishes as a top 30 wideout again even in a bad matchup against the Cowboys this week.
3 days ago
Philip Rivers photo 134. Philip Rivers QB - LAC (at KC)
It's been a struggle for Rivers this season, as injuries to his offensive line has left him little time to find open receivers. He's alternated excellent games with awful ones, and is no longer someone on whom fantasy owners can rely other than in two-quarterback leagues.
7 weeks ago
Tony Pollard photo 135. Tony Pollard RB - DAL (vs . WAS)
Some will want to drop Pollard knowing they aren't going to be starting him with Ezekiel Elliott on the field, but he's the ideal player to have on your bench. Should Elliott be forced to miss any games, Pollard would be a league-winner. These are the types of players to have on your bench heading into the fantasy playoffs.
5 days ago
Noah Fant photo 136. Noah Fant TE - DEN (vs . OAK)
Since Emmanuel Sanders was traded to San Francisco, Fant leads the Broncos in targets and has seen a handful of red zone looks as well. The matchup isn't ideal this week in Buffalo but we are talking about a rest of season top 12 tight end.
2 weeks ago
Sam Darnold photo 137. Sam Darnold QB - NYJ (at BUF)
You've likely streamed Darnold the last few weeks, so why not hang onto him for his Week 14 matchup with the Dolphins? They have allowed 10-of-12 quarterbacks to finish with at least 15.6 fantasy points and as the QB16 or better. He should present a high floor.
5 days ago
Zach Pascal photo 138. Zach Pascal WR - IND (at JAC)
With T.Y. Hilton facing another setback and both Parris Campbell and Eric Ebron rules out for the season, Pascal was given 10 targets in Week 13. He made the most of them, going for 100+ yards for the second time this season. Even with him being the Colts #1 wideout, there is some risk most weeks, but that shouldn't be the case considering they have easiest passing matchup on the slate versus the Bucs.
3 days ago
Gus Edwards photo 139. Gus Edwards RB - BAL (vs . PIT)
Gus Edwards will go off from time to time thanks to the game scripts Baltimore has been in and will likely see again, but you can't trust him week to week. With that said, if Mark Ingram were to suffer an injury, Edwards would be a weekly RB2 so he may be worth stashing.
2 weeks ago
Gerald Everett photo 140. Gerald Everett TE - LAR (vs . ARI)

Greg Olsen photo 141. Greg Olsen TE - CAR (vs . NO)
Olsen looked to be returning to form for a few games, but has basically fallen off a cliff. He has just two catches for five yards combined in his last two games.

O.J. Howard photo 142. O.J. Howard TE - TB (vs . ATL)
Howard has been such a disappointment that it may make you cringe, but if you need a streaming tight end this week, he is likely the best option available in your league. Yes, he comes with risk, but there is also considerable upside that no other available tight end can offer.

Larry Fitzgerald photo 143. Larry Fitzgerald WR - ARI (at LAR)
Fitzgerald has fallen off a bit since his incredibly hot start, but he's yet to have a game with fewer than five receptions.

The Bears defense hasn't been the defense many thought they'd be this year, and that's not likely going to change over the last three games of the fantasy season.

Devonta Freeman could be back for Week 11 or miss the rest of the season. With Ito Smith already on IR, that would mean 15 to 20 touches every game for Hill in a strong offense. Don't sleep on the fact that Hill is an explosive athlete and could break out in this role to become a weekly RB2. If Freeman is out, Hill is well worth your entire FAAB budget.

Ryan Fitzpatrick photo 154. Ryan Fitzpatrick QB - MIA (at NE)

You may have had your heart broken by Corey Davis a time or two, but that doesn't mean you can't play him in your fantasy playoffs with cake matchups against Oakland and Houston coming up. If you have the roster space, stash him now for two starts then.

Malcolm Brown photo 167. Malcolm Brown RB - LAR (vs . ARI)
Coach Sean McVay has made it clear that both Henderson and Brown will be plenty involved this season which makes sense considering they used a tender to ensure Brown remained on their roster. He may not quite be the second option, but absolutely has some upside in this high-powered offense.

Gardner Minshew photo 169. Gardner Minshew QB - JAC (vs . IND)
Although Minshew won't help you this week, his next two matchups are so good that you could stash him then use him in Weeks 15 and 16 versus the Raiders and Falcons. Otherwise, you'd need to spend FAAB to acquire him the next few weeks.

Ryan Griffin photo 176. Ryan Griffin TE - NYJ (at BUF)
If you snagged Griffin to stream a few weeks back, you can hang onto him for one more week. He's going to play against the Dolphins in Week 14, which has netted a lot of positive results for fantasy owners who stream against them. Griffin scored in their first meeting but the refs overturned it when he rolled into a wall and the ball moved. Griffin is someone who'll be ranked as a top-15 consensus tight end in Week 14.

Nyheim Hines photo 177. Nyheim Hines RB - IND (at JAC)
Hines has minimal upside but if you are desperate for a running back this week, he isn't the worst play in what should be a high-scoring game. Plus, Tampa shuts down the run so it might benefit Indy to have their pass-catching back on the field more often.
3 days ago
Jonathan Williams photo 178. Jonathan Williams RB - IND (at JAC)
With Marlon Mack already ruled out for Thursday and likely several more weeks, Williams is the clear-cut top pickup this week. He piled up 147 yards on just 14 touches against the Jags last week and while Jordan Wilkins may come back, chances are that this is now Williams' job.
2 weeks ago
Benny Snell Jr. photo 179. Benny Snell Jr. RB - PIT (at BAL)
Much like last week, there is a chance James Conner comes back and gobbles up all the touches for himself. The upside far outweighs that risk, however. Snell now has 39 touches in the past two weeks and just so happens to be coming into matchups against the Cardinals lousy defense and the Bills' struggling run defense over the next two weeks. You can bet he'll be ranked among the top 24 options in both contests if Conner is out once again.

Phillip Dorsett photo 180. Phillip Dorsett WR - NE (vs . MIA)

Chris Conley photo 181. Chris Conley WR - JAC (vs . IND)

Mason Crosby photo 182. Mason Crosby K - GB (at DET)
Mecole Hardman photo 183. Mecole Hardman WR - KC (vs . LAC)
Hardman can't be used this week because of bye, nor is he trustworthy when he returns because of limited snaps and targets, but if the Chiefs plug him into the lineup finally, we could be looking at a potential league-winner so he warrants a stash if you have the roster space.
2 weeks ago
Kyle Allen photo 184. Kyle Allen QB - CAR (vs . NO)
Allen has three great playmakers and a tremendous upcoming matchup against the Falcons. Not only that but he is coming off two strong performances. He isn't a top 12 option this week so you probably won't want to stream him but he wouldn't make for the worst play in a two-QB league.
3 days ago
Cole Beasley photo 185. Cole Beasley WR - BUF (vs . NYJ)
Beasley has another rough matchup this week versus Baltimore, but the difficult matchups haven't slowed him down so far this season. He is on a great run and can be used in the flex any of the next three weeks if you need a reliable WR4.

Mitch Trubisky photo 186. Mitch Trubisky QB - CHI (at MIN)
Trubisky returned from his shoulder injury after the bye and, although he put up garbage-time points, continued to look inaccurate and skittish. His regression has doomed the entire Bears offense, and there is no reason for optimism, even in two-quarterback formats.

Allen Lazard photo 187. Allen Lazard WR - GB (at DET)
Lazard has been playing enough to be regarded as Aaron Rodgers' #2 wideout, but he isn't getting consistent enough targets to rely on him in even a matchup versus Washington this week. With that said, if you need upside, Lazard could certainly go off this week.

Brett Maher photo 188. Brett Maher K - DAL (vs . WAS)
Darwin Thompson photo 189. Darwin Thompson RB - KC (vs . LAC)
With Damien Williams potentially out and Darrell Williams likely done for the season, Thompson has a chance to be the lead back in a high-scoring offense since LeSean McCoy has been capped at a minimal workload. If that happens in Week 14, you could use Thompson over each of the next two weeks despite difficult matchups.
3 days ago
Chase Edmonds photo 190. Chase Edmonds RB - ARI (at LAR)
With Kenyan Drake filling a big role for the Cardinals, the only way Edmonds sees playing time is if the Cardinals were to shut down David Johnson. That doesn't seem likely as of now, which makes Edmonds nothing more than a third-string running back.

J.D. McKissic photo 191. J.D. McKissic RB - DET (vs . GB)
It is possible that the Lions go sign a veteran in the next 24 hours like Mike Davis or Jay Ajayi, but if that doesn't happen, we've got the clear number one running back that plays all three downs. He didn't do much with 16 touches last week, but you can't replace volume.

N'Keal Harry photo 192. N'Keal Harry WR - NE (vs . MIA)
The Patriots showed us in Week 11 that Harry has surpassed Jakobi Meyers as the #4 receiver but now Phillip Dorsett is banged up which means Harry should get his first start this week in Dallas. His potential makes him worth taking a flier on.

Jeff Wilson photo 193. Jeff Wilson RB - SF (at SEA)

Pittsburgh Steelers photo 196. Pittsburgh Steelers DST - PIT (at BAL)
Mike Gesicki photo 197. Mike Gesicki TE - MIA (at NE)
The matchup this week against the Jets is among the toughest for opposing tight ends so you likely won't want to use Gesicki in it. With that said, he has been getting consistent target and air yards, enough so to make stash-worthy.

A.J. Green photo 198. A.J. Green WR - CIN (vs . CLE)
It's gotten to the point where you can drop Green. He's a pending free agent who has absolutely nothing to play for right now. It's clear that his injury hasn't healed as quickly as he'd like. While the Bengals may plan on franchise tagging him, Green needs to keep his interests in mind.

Ty Johnson photo 199. Ty Johnson RB - DET (vs . GB)
Kerryon Johnson suffered a knee injury in Week 7 and ended up on IR. Ty is a rare combination of both side and speed and is a must-start this week against the Giants and every other week assuming he remains the starter.

Jacksonville Jaguars photo 200. Jacksonville Jaguars DST - JAC (vs . IND)
Darrell Henderson photo 201. Darrell Henderson RB - LAR (vs . ARI)
Not only does it appear like a timeshare behind Todd Gurley, but the offense isn't good enough to warrant the backfield as a must-own situation like it was the first two years in Sean McVay's offense. Henderson's best-case scenario is likely 8-12 touches per game with an injury to Gurley, and even then, he wouldn't get the goal-line work.
2 weeks ago
Rex Burkhead photo 202. Rex Burkhead RB - NE (vs . MIA)
Burkhead was so useful last week because James White was out for personal reasons. Prior to that, the Patriots were up by four touchdowns so unless you are planning on either of those happening again, you can't plan on putting Rex into your lineup. He does have upside if Sony or White gets injured though.
10 weeks ago
Jason Witten photo 203. Jason Witten TE - DAL (vs . WAS)
Witten is by no means a sexy add at this point in his career, but he'll see enough targets, especially in the red zone, to make him worthy of streaming two or three times this season.

Matt Prater photo 204. Matt Prater K - DET (vs . GB)
Vance McDonald photo 205. Vance McDonald TE - PIT (at BAL)
If there's ever a reason to play McDonald, it's when he has a matchup against the Cardinals, who have been a slot machine for tight ends all season. They've allowed 10 tight ends to hit double-digit PPR points this year, which is the most in the NFL. He should offer a stable floor for those streaming the position.
5 days ago
Philadelphia Eagles photo 206. Philadelphia Eagles DST - PHI (at NYG)
If you grabbed the Eagles defense to stream against the Dolphins, you can hang onto them for a couple more weeks. They're going to play against the Giants and Redskins over the next two weeks, two matchups that have netted a lot of top-12 performances.

With Alshon back and now Dallas Goedert playing 70% of the snaps, Agholor's role has diminished enough that we can't justify using him outside of perfect matchups. He doesn't have one this week in Dallas so he is better off left on waivers for now.
7 weeks ago
Wayne Gallman photo 211. Wayne Gallman RB - NYG (vs . PHI)
Saquon Barkley suffered a high ankle sprain in Week 3 and is due to get his MRI results any hour. It seems likely that he will miss 4 to 6 weeks, and while Gallman doesn't have anywhere close to RB1 upside, that would still be 4-6 startable fantasy weeks which is enough to make him the top pickup of the week. Because of his limited upside, though, I'd only spend 10 to 12 FAAB to acquire him unless you are desperate at running back.
11 weeks ago
David Njoku photo 212. David Njoku TE - CLE (at CIN)
Although Njoku has an excellent Week 14 matchup, it doesn't make sense to use him even if he is active because he may just play a few series. With that said, he is an excellent stash because of his upside over the final two weeks.
3 days ago
Carolina Panthers photo 213. Carolina Panthers DST - CAR (vs . NO)
Jay Ajayi photo 214. Jay Ajayi RB - PHI (at NYG)
Ajayi is working out for the Cardinals which likely means David Johnson's injury is worse than they were letting on. He would merely be a middle-range handcuff for Chase Edmonds, however, if he did sign.
6 weeks ago
Chris Thompson photo 215. Chris Thompson RB - WAS (at DAL)
Despite Derrius Guice's injury, Thompson's role should remain the same, and that's not necessarily a bad thing. He's always been a stealthily valuable running back, particularly in PPR and 1/2 PPR formats, whenever he's healthy. That's rarely a constant for Thompson, but so long as he remains free from injury, as he currently is, he should be a fine fantasy play in those formats.
12 weeks ago
Danny Amendola photo 216. Danny Amendola WR - DET (vs . GB)
If you need a streamer for this week, Amendola has been rolling with back to back games of 8 receptions and 95+ yards. Now that Kerryon Johnson is out and the Lions run into a pass-funnel Raiders defense, you can expect Stafford's third consecutive 300+ yard performance. If that happens, you'll be glad to have started Amendola.
5 weeks ago
Geronimo Allison photo 217. Geronimo Allison WR - GB (at DET)

Josh Reynolds photo 218. Josh Reynolds WR - LAR (vs . ARI)
Reynolds may be filling in for Brandin Cooks while he is out, and that may end up being the remainder of the season, but we are talking about the number four option at best in Jared Goff's offense. Add in a bad rest of season schedule and we should be leaving Reynolds on waivers.

Jimmy Graham photo 219. Jimmy Graham TE - GB (at DET)

Taylor Gabriel photo 225. Taylor Gabriel WR - CHI (at MIN)
It is clear that Mitch Trubisky loves Taylor Gabriel, as evidenced by his production last year and Week 11's 14 targets. This week, Gabriel makes for a sneaky streamer play as he has the best matchup on the field versus a horrendous Giants' secondary.

Tennessee Titans photo 226. Tennessee Titans DST - TEN (at HOU)

Darren Fells photo 228. Darren Fells TE - HOU (vs . TEN)

If you were holding out hope that Stafford would be back for the fantasy playoffs, it seems somewhat unlikely. With the team out of the playoff hunt, they've reportedly had discussions about shutting him down for the year. It would make the most sense, as he is their franchise. He's droppable.

Demarcus Robinson photo 234. Demarcus Robinson WR - KC (vs . LAC)
Tyreek Hill will eventually come back which will leave Robinson and Hardman to compete for snaps so there will be few weeks where it is safe to start him. With that said, he should pile up enough points to finish the year as a top 50 wide receiver.

Dante Pettis photo 246. Dante Pettis WR - SF (at SEA)
Pettis was drafted as a WR3 this summer who had WR2 upside and while we haven't seen it yet, he has been slowly growing toward the role as he separates himself from the preseason injury. He is worth taking a shot on in case he emerges as that top receiver for Jimmy G and it may happen this week in a killer matchup against Washington.

Dion Lewis photo 247. Dion Lewis RB - TEN (at HOU)
With the display Derrick Henry put on at the end of the season, there is no chance Lewis leads the Titans' backfield this year unless Henry's injury is a bigger deal that it currently appears. That isn't to say Lewis won't have games where he splashes but predicting which week it will be is a difficult task so he should merely be thought of as a handcuff.

We know New Orleans multiplies a running back's value, so why wouldn't the reverse effect take place when a running back leaves? No one is arguing that Mark Ingram is awful, but I'll contend that he isn't good enough outside of that Saints' system to lock down the starting running back job in Baltimore. If anyone is going to sneak in and win the job, it would be Justice Hill. Mike Tagliere, likens Hill to Reggie Bush, but you could also call him a bigger and more athletic version of Phillip Lindsay with excellent instincts and top-level speed. Pair that with a run-heavy offense and we might just have this year's biggest surprise breakout running back.

It was odd that the Patriots drafted yet another running back, and because he is seemingly their number four on the depth chart, you may think he has no fantasy appeal, but rather, he is the direct replacement for Sony Michel. James White wouldn't move into that role nor would Rex Burkhead so instead, Harris is an injury away from top 20 RB value and perhaps much more.

Jackson has run well in the first three games, but has been overshadowed by Austin Ekeler's dominance, particularly in the passing game. With Melvin Godon returning, Jackson's minimal value should nearly evaporate by Week 6. But for Week 4 against the Dolphins, when Gordon will be out, and Week 5 against the Broncos, when Gordon's role may be minimal, Jackson is someone who fantasy owners can likely play in a pinch.

The rookie now has 26 targets on the season and is coming into an excellent home matchup versus a banged-up Falcons secondary that has been getting shredded. He makes for a solid flex play if you are desperate for a decent streamer in Week 6.

T.J. Yeldon photo 299. T.J. Yeldon RB - BUF (vs . NYJ)
LeSean McCoy is the biggest name in this Buffalo backfield and Devin Singletary the hot new rookie, but it was Yeldon last year who's tape stood out. Don't be surprised if he grabs hold of the starting job for Buffalo this August and produces like a strong RB3 this season.

Tyler Higbee photo 303. Tyler Higbee TE - LAR (vs . ARI)
Higbee may have had a nice game against the Cardinals, but there is a chance Everett comes back, and while Seattle isn't the toughest matchup by any means, Higbee just isn't talented enough to be start-worthy in it.

Tyler Eifert photo 304. Tyler Eifert TE - CIN (vs . CLE)
Eifert is nowhere close to the longterm pickup that Chris Herndon is, but he is a much better pickup is you are looking for a Week 5 streamer. Eifert should have a big day against the Cardinals' suspect defense versus tight ends.

Marcus Mariota photo 308. Marcus Mariota QB - TEN (at HOU)
Mariota was benched in Week 6 against the Broncos, and his future is cloudy. Whether he or Ryan Tannehill starts for the remainder of the season, at this point, there's no reason to roster Mariota any longer.

Dawson Knox photo 309. Dawson Knox TE - BUF (vs . NYJ)
Knox disappointed in Week 7 in what seemed to be an ideal matchup. If you are looking for a streamer this week, he may appear to be in a good matchup, but there are several better options including Vance McDonald and Jonnu Smith.

Logan Thomas photo 311. Logan Thomas TE - DET (vs . GB)
Zay Jones photo 312. Zay Jones WR - OAK (at DEN)
Believe it or not, Jones finished as a WR3 last season. It wasn't especially consistent and the Bills did bring in John Brown, but Jones is a safe WR5/WR6 type in case you need respectable production during a bye week or in place of an injured player.

Irv Smith Jr. photo 313. Irv Smith Jr. TE - MIN (vs . CHI)
Since Adam Thielen went down, Smith has 6+ targets in three of four games. The matchup versus Denver isn't ideal this week, but if you need a tight end, he has a nice floor based on the volume he's been seeing.

Case Keenum photo 314. Case Keenum QB - WAS (at DAL)
Other than the game against the Giants when he was pulled early, Keenum has thrown multiple touchdown passes in every game he has started, including against the Bears. He's not pretty, but in a two-quarterback league, you could do worse as a low-end starter.

Taysom Hill photo 315. Taysom Hill QB - NO (at CAR)
Willie Snead photo 316. Willie Snead WR - BAL (vs . PIT)
Snead has been consistently mediocre this season and while that may not sound too encouraging, it should mean we can rely on him as a WR4 or better this week in a perfect matchup versus the Bengals.

Donte Moncrief photo 317. Donte Moncrief WR - CAR (vs . NO)
It sounds as though Moncrief will be the number two receiver for Pittsburg ahead of James Washington but it is by no means a guarantee. If he does play 80% of the snaps, we could be looking at one of the top breakouts of the season.

Kerryon Johnson photo 320. Kerryon Johnson RB - DET (vs . GB)
Kerryon is a popular early-round pick this year for many and while he may be talented, this offense is unlikely to produce enough points to give him much of a ceiling. What's more, is that Kerryon himself has said he isn't a three-down back and the Lions haven't used him on third downs this preseason so make of that what you will.

DaeSean Hamilton photo 322. DaeSean Hamilton WR - DEN (vs . OAK)
Hamilton has an excellent matchup Thursday night against the Chiefs but even in a matchup like this, the #3 receiver from a bad offense won't be a start-worthy option.

Brian Hoyer photo 323. Brian Hoyer QB - IND (at JAC)
Hoyer acquitted himself nicely in relief of Jacoby Brissett in Week 9 against the Steelers, throwing for three touchdown passes and nearly rallying the Colts to a win. He may get the start in Week 10 against the Dolphins if the Colts opt to hold Brissett out, and he'd be a fine streamer in two-quarterback leagues in that case. Other than that, however, fantasy owners do not need to consider Hoyer.

Tyrod Taylor photo 324. Tyrod Taylor QB - LAC (at KC)
Chase Daniel photo 325. Chase Daniel QB - CHI (at MIN)
Daniel performed well in relief of Mitchell Trubisky (all things considered) in Week 4, and will get the reins against Oakland in London. It sounds like Trubisky will be back sooner rather than later, so Daniel is just a quick fix in two-QB leagues.

Matt Moore photo 326. Matt Moore QB - KC (vs . LAC)
Moore has filled in admirably for Patrick Mahomes, but the young quarterback looks ready to return shortly. In a perfect offensive system, Moore has value in two-quarterback leagues so long as he is starting for the Chiefs, but that time is likely at an end.

Antonio Brown photo 327. Antonio Brown WR - FA (BYE)
Brown has now been traded by the Steelers, cut by the Raiders and cut by the Patriots. He says he is done with the NFL so you can drop him, but if you can afford a bench spot, it may be in your best interest to hang onto him for a few weeks just in case he comes back with another team.

Cameron Brate photo 332. Cameron Brate TE - TB (vs . ATL)
It seems as though the Bucs finally turned the page on O.J. Howard after his terrible drop that led to an interception. Brate ended up with a whopping 14 targets against the toughest tight end matchup in football. This week he'll move into a much better matchup versus the Falcons' shoddy secondary.

Robert Griffin photo 333. Robert Griffin QB - BAL (vs . PIT)
Jordan Reed photo 334. Jordan Reed TE - WAS (at DAL)
Say what you want about how awful Reed has been compared to his ADP over the years, but you can't say he has been bad when healthy. Unfortunately, Reed suffered his 7th concussion of his career in the preseason so we may have to wait awhile before we can use him.
