Fantasy Football Player Notes

2019 Rest of Season Rankings
Devonta Freeman Note
Devonta Freeman photo 42. Devonta Freeman RB - (BYE)
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.

Carlos Hyde Note
Carlos Hyde photo 61. Carlos Hyde RB - (BYE)
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.
21 weeks ago
Jameis Winston Note
Jameis Winston photo 78. Jameis Winston QB - (BYE)
Winston showed some improvement against the Panthers, but he has thrown just two touchdown passes in the first two games. He has the potential to uncork some perfect throws, but he seems far from putting it all together. Consider him only a borderline starter in deeper leagues for now, one who you shouldn't feel compelled to start going forward.
29 weeks ago
LeSean McCoy Note
LeSean McCoy photo 85. LeSean McCoy RB - (BYE)
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.
30 weeks ago
Frank Gore Note
Frank Gore photo 120. Frank Gore RB - (BYE)
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 Tony Pollard or Alexander Mattison.

Josh Gordon Note
Josh Gordon photo 150. Josh Gordon WR - (BYE)
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.
23 weeks ago
Demaryius Thomas Note
Demaryius Thomas photo 153. Demaryius Thomas WR - (BYE)
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.
19 weeks ago
Chris Thompson Note
Chris Thompson photo 191. Chris Thompson RB - (BYE)
Although Thompson isn't going to get any carries with both Adrian Peterson and Derrius Guice rolling, he did see 8 targets last game. With a useful game script likely coming up against Philly, he'll be on the RB4/RB3 fringe as a potential flex start.
16 weeks ago
Jay Ajayi Note
Jay Ajayi photo 204. Jay Ajayi RB - (BYE)
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.
23 weeks ago
Nick Folk Note
Nick Folk photo 207. Nick Folk K - (BYE)
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.
19 weeks ago
Bilal Powell Note
Bilal Powell photo 233. Bilal Powell RB - (BYE)
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.
28 weeks ago
Ty Montgomery Note
Ty Montgomery photo 256. Ty Montgomery RB - (BYE)
Le'Veon Bell hasn't exactly been the most durable starting running back and while it is rumored that the Jets are looking for additional help at the position, it is Montgomery now who is the clear backup if anything were to happen, and believe it or not, he has looked terrific this preseason.
30 weeks ago
Darren Fells Note
Darren Fells photo 258. Darren Fells TE - (BYE)
Fells just keeps getting the job done and as a result, he should now be considered a top 15 rest of season tight end. With that said, this week he doesn't make for a great start as he draws the Jags defense.
22 weeks ago
Mike Nugent Note
Mike Nugent photo 275. Mike Nugent K - (BYE)
Rashard Higgins Note

Matt Bryant Note
Matt Bryant photo 301. Matt Bryant K - (BYE)
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.
30 weeks ago
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.
27 weeks ago
Theo Riddick Note
Theo Riddick photo 324. Theo Riddick RB - (BYE)
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.
