Fantasy Football Player Notes

2019 Rest of Season Rankings
Devonta Freeman Note

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.

LeSean McCoy Note

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.

Josh Gordon Note

Gordon has been placed on injured reserve and the word is that the Patriots will release him once he is healthy. There's a minor chance that he latches on with another team and provides small value this season, but there's no reason to waste a roster spot on him.

Demaryius Thomas Note

Thomas has led the Jets in targets since joining the starting lineup and hasn't played half bad either. This week they draw an easy matchup against the Raiders and he will be startable the following two contests as well.

Jay Ajayi Note

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.

Nick Folk Note

Jonathan Williams Note
Jonathan Williams photo 216. Jonathan Williams RB - (BYE)
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.

Taylor Gabriel Note
Taylor Gabriel photo 217. Taylor Gabriel WR - (BYE)
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.

Bilal Powell Note

Eli Manning Note
Eli Manning photo 236. Eli Manning QB - (BYE)
Manning has been benched in favor of Daniel Jones. Absent an injury, there's little reason to think he'll see the field again in 2019. To the extent you were holding him (and you shouldn't have been), move on.

Brandon Allen Note
Brandon Allen photo 310. Brandon Allen QB - (BYE)
Allen will take over as the Broncos' starter for Week 9 against the Browns. He has never shown anything in preseason games to make fantasy owners think he can be a viable option, so he's best ignored in all fantasy leagues.

Donte Moncrief Note
Donte Moncrief photo 311. Donte Moncrief WR - (BYE)
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.

Antonio Brown Note
Antonio Brown photo 312. Antonio Brown WR - (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.

Theo Riddick Note

Jaron Brown Note
Jaron Brown photo 331. Jaron Brown WR - (BYE)
Jaron hauled in two touchdowns but he only saw three receptions and now that David Moore is healthy, Brown is the clear #4 in a low-volume passing offense.
