Fantasy Football Player Notes

2020 Half PPR Rest of Season Rankings
Melvin Gordon III Note

Gordon had two touchdowns against the Dolphins in Week 11, and re-established himself as, at a minimum, a viable fantasy asset. He'll continue to split time with Phillip Lindsay, but he should see enough volume to be borderline startable most weeks.

Jerry Jeudy Note

You won't find a bigger Jeudy fan than me, but if you're looking ahead on his fantasy schedule, there are going to be tough times. After what was a tough matchup against the Saints, he'll play the Chiefs (4th-worst matchup for wide receivers), Panthers (9th-worst), Bills (7th-worst), and then Chargers (8th-worst).

Noah Fant Note

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.

Tim Patrick Note

Phillip Lindsay Note

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.

KJ Hamler Note

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.

Drew Lock Note

Lock is dealing with a rib injury and may miss Week 11's game against the Dolphins. Even when healthy, he's nothing more than a low-end QB2. There's no reason to roster him at this point other than in deeper two-quarterback leagues.

Denver Broncos Note

Brandon McManus Note

McManus bounced back from a few sub-par years, hitting 85.3% of his field-goal attempts and all but one of his extra-point attempts. The biggest difference for McManus was that he saw 34 field-goal tries, second-most of his career. With more offensive weapons for Drew Lock and a sturdy defense, McManus should again see plenty of chances. In the thin air in Denver, he's a decent bet to finish as a top-12 kicker, though should probably be drafted only in 15-team leagues.

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.
