Fantasy Football Player Notes

2019 Rest of Season Rankings
Saquon Barkley Note

If you got through 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.

Sterling Shepard Note

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.

Golden Tate Note

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.

Darius Slayton Note

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.

Daniel Jones Note

Jones has had two huge weeks but has otherwise been uninspiring. With that said, you could start virtually any quarterback against the Jets this year so he makes for a solid Week 10 streamer.

Wayne Gallman Note

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.

Dion Lewis Note

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.
