Fantasy Football Player Notes

2020 Rest of Season Rankings

Le'Veon Bell Note
Le'Veon Bell photo 59. Le'Veon Bell RB - (BYE)
Bell signed with the Chiefs on October 15th, and will now be the 1B to Clyde Edwards-Helaire's 1A. It wasn't the best spot for Bell to land, in that there is a younger and more talented back ahead of him. But he'll play for an elite offense, one that is capable of utilizing his skill set. Consider Bell a strong Flex play going forward.

Frank Gore Note

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.

Todd Gurley II Note
Todd Gurley II photo 96. Todd Gurley II RB - (BYE)
He keeps falling into the end zone, which is what's holding up his fantasy stock, but his inefficiency cannot be ignored. Neither can his health or schedule, which ranks as the third-toughest in the NFL over the remainder of the season, including another game against the Bucs, the league's toughest matchup for running backs.

Drew Brees Note
Drew Brees photo 122. Drew Brees QB - (BYE)
Brees has multiple fractured ribs and a collapsed lung and will miss some time, though the exact length of his absence is unclear. In single-quarterback leagues, you can likely move on from the veteran, as the Saints will likely be careful with him since they've shown they can win despite playing a backup.
36 weeks ago
Ito Smith Note
Ito Smith photo 126. Ito Smith RB - (BYE)
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.

Adrian Peterson Note
Adrian Peterson photo 132. Adrian Peterson RB - (BYE)
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.

Duke Johnson Jr. Note
Duke Johnson Jr. photo 213. Duke Johnson Jr. RB - (BYE)
Johnson will get his chance as the featured back for the Texans beginning in Week 10, with David Johnson placed on IR with a concussion. Duke has talent and should provide a high floor with his receiving chops, and should be considered an RB2 for as long as David is out.

LeSean McCoy Note

Jordan Reed Note

Golden Tate Note
Golden Tate photo 239. Golden Tate WR - (BYE)
Tate missed four games last year after his suspension but he had a very solid year when he was on the field. He finished the season ranked 31st among wide receiver in fantasy points per game (half-PPR formats) and continued to excel in producing yards after the catch. Tate will be 32 years old when the season starts and will continue to compete for targets with Sterling Shepard, Darius Slayton, Evan Engram, and Saquon Barkley. But in full PPR formats at least, he should be a viable flex option most weeks. In standard or half-PPR leagues, however, draft him only as a bench player.

Julian Edelman Note
Julian Edelman photo 331. Julian Edelman WR - (BYE)
Edelman underwent a precautionary standard knee procedure on October 29th an is expected to miss some time. Edelman was droppable before the injury, and given that his short-term future is doubtful, he can certainly be cut loose in redraft leagues.
