About Andrew Ericksen - RotoBaller

Start Younghoe Koo In Week 14

Atlanta Falcons kicker Younghoe Koo has earned at least three field goal attempts in each of his four games with the Falcons. He's hit 12-of-14 attempts on the year. This week, the Falcons face the Panthers in a game that should feature a good amount of scoring. Expect Koo to have the opportunity to hit... Read More

Falcons Defense Should Be Avoided In Week 14

The Falcons Defense showed some glimpses of hope in Week 10 and Week 11, completely shutting down the Saints and Panthers. However, the past two weeks, they've struggled mightily and have allowed a total of 61 points. This week, the Falcons have their second meeting against the Panthers. While Kyle Allen could turn the ball... Read More

Qadree Ollison Not A Starting Option In Week 14

Atlanta Falcons running back Qadree Ollison didn't see a single touch in Week 13. The team featured Devonta Freeman heavily in the game, with Brian Hill as his backup. Ollison scored touchdowns in back-to-back games while Freeman was out in Week 11 and Week 12, but now appears to be relegated to benchwarmer status. He... Read More

Brian Hill Not A Viable Starter In Week 14

Atlanta Falcons running back Brian Hill saw his workload heavily diminished upon the return of Devonta Freeman in Week 13. This week should be a similar story as the team faces the Panthers. Hill should see only around six or seven touches at best in the game, giving him little hope of a solid fantasy... Read More

Devonta Freeman Is A Solid RB2 In Week 14

Atlanta Falcons running back Devonta Freeman saw a heavy workload in Week 13, following a two-game absence. He had a total of 21 touches in Week 13, including four receptions. He should be similarly featured this week as the team takes on the Panthers. Freeman has greatly struggled from an efficiency standpoint this year, averaging... Read More

Russell Gage Worth Monitoring For Week 14

Atlanta Falcons wide receiver Russell Gage (ribs) was a limited practice participant on Wednesday. He wasn't alone. Julio Jones (shoulder), Calvin Ridley (toe) and Austin Hooper (knee) were all limited as well. Assuming Gage is able to play in Week 14, his upside varies greatly depending on which of the other three hobbled Falcons pass-catchers... Read More

Calvin Ridley Is A Strong WR2 Play In Week 14

Atlanta Falcons wide receiver Calvin Ridley (toe) was a limited practice participant on Wednesday. He's currently questionable for Week 14 against the Panthers, but there doesn't seem to be much indication that he's at risk to miss the game. Ridley is riding a three-game hot streak. He has 22 receptions for over 300 yards and... Read More

Julio Jones Is A Low-End WR1 If He's Active In Week 14

Atlanta Falcons wide receiver Julio Jones (shoulder) missed his first game of the year in Week 13 and is currently questionable for Week 14. He was a limited practice participant on Wednesday. If he can practice in full before Sunday's game against the Panthers, he should be good to go. Jones has had a somewhat... Read More

Austin Hooper Is A Must-Start If He Goes In Week 14

Atlanta Falcons tight end Austin Hooper (knee) was a limited practice participant on Wednesday and could be slated to make his return in Week 14 against the Panthers. Hooper was having a monster season before the injury sidelined him. He earned at least five targets in each of the nine games he played this year... Read More

Matt Ryan Is A Viable QB1 Option In Week 14

Atlanta Falcons quarterback Matt Ryan had a solid bounce-back performance in Week 13, throwing for 312 yards and two touchdowns. This week, Ryan and the Falcons face the Panthers. The Falcons are riddled with injuries on offense, but signs seem to be pointing towards a return for Julio Jones (shoulder) and Austin Hooper (knee) this... Read More

Bills Defense Faces Tough Week 14 Test

The Bills Defense did a solid job holding a strong Cowboys offense to just 15 points in Week 13, but this week they face an even tougher opponent in the Ravens. The Ravens are averaging over 33 points per game on the year and about 420 yards from scrimmage per game. The Bills defense has... Read More

Dawson Knox Not Worth Starting In Week 14

Buffalo Bills tight end Dawson Knox has had a steady role in the offense over the past month, but his usage isn't high enough to inspire confidence for fantasy owners. He has five catches on six targets in his past two games, but has only managed to gain 28 yards total in those two games.... Read More

Cole Beasley Is A Decent PPR Play In Week 14

Buffalo Bills wide receiver Cole Beasley has been on a roll lately. He's topped 70 receiving yards in three of his past four games and has scored touchdowns in two straight. He's earned more targets than the team's No. 1 receiver John Brown each of the past two weeks. This week, the Bills face a... Read More

John Brown Worth Starting As WR2 In Week 14

Buffalo Bills wide receiver John Brown is coming off of his worst game of the season. He caught just three passes for 26 yards in Week 13, only the second time he'd been held under 50 receiving yards in a game on the season. This week, the Bills face a tough Ravens Defense and they'll... Read More

T.J. Yeldon Can Remain On Waivers In All Leagues

Buffalo Bills running back T.J. Yeldon has been inactive for six straight weeks and there's little reason to believe that streak will end against the Ravens this week. The Bills are going exclusively with Devin Singletary and Frank Gore at this point, making Yeldon unworthy of ownership in any league format.

3 days ago


Frank Gore Not Worth Considering In Week 14

Buffalo Bills running back Frank Gore has continued to be heavily involved in the team's offense. He has had double-digit touches in three straight games. However, he's struggled to make the most of his touches, particularly in Week 13, when he rushed for just 11 yards on nine carries. Devin Singletary is the clear No.... Read More

Devin Singletary A Solid Start In Week 14

Buffalo Bills running back Devin Singletary has 55 touches over his past three games and figures to have a heavy workload once again in Week 14 against the Ravens. Singletary is averaging a remarkable 5.6 yards per carry on the year and has topped 100 yards in each of his past two games. The Ravens... Read More

Josh Allen Faces Tough Week 14 Matchup Against Ravens

Buffalo Bills quarterback Josh Allen has scored multiple touchdowns in eight straight games, but this week he has a particularly difficult test against the Ravens, who are allowing just 18.2 points per game on the year. Allen has done well against tough matchups versus the Cowboys and Broncos the past two weeks, so there's reason... Read More

Younghoe Koo Hits Two Field Goals In Week 13

Atlanta Falcons kicker Younghoe Koo hit two of three field-goal attempts on Thanksgiving. He missed a 42-yarder but hit a 45-yard attempt. He also missed his only extra-point attempt in the game. Koo has attempted at least three field goals in each of his four games with the Falcons. The opportunities are aplenty and Koo... Read More

Falcons Defense Gives Up 26 Points In Week 13

The Falcons Defense only gave up 279 yards of offense against the Saints on Thanksgiving, but the Saints put 26 points on the board and were turnover-free in the game. The Falcons also failed to record a single sack for the second straight week. The Falcons have allowed 61 points in the past two games... Read More

Christian Blake Comes Through With 57 Yards On Thanksgiving

Atlanta Falcons wide receiver Christian Blake stepped up for the team in a big way on Thanksgiving against the Saints. After catching only four passes all year coming into the game, Blake wound up with six catches for 57 yards on nine targets in Week 13. He tied with Russell Gage for second on the... Read More

Jaeden Graham Reels In Touchdown In Week 13

Atlanta Falcons tight end Jaeden Graham had a solid performance against the Saints on Thanksgiving. He caught all four of his targets for 41 yards and scored the first touchdown of his career. Graham has seen some extra opportunities in the absence of Austin Hooper (back) the past three weeks, but this was his first... Read More

Russell Gage Scores First Career Touchdown In Week 13

Atlanta Falcons wide receiver Russell Gage was heavily involved in the offense once again this week. He was targeted nine times in the game and wound up with five catches for 52 yards and a touchdown. He's earned nine or more targets in three of his past five games now. The team was without Julio...

Calvin Ridley Leads Falcons In Receiving In Week 13

Atlanta Falcons wide receiver Calvin Ridley led the team in receptions (eight), targets (10) and receiving yards (91) against the Saints on Thanksgiving. It wasn't much of a surprise given the absence of Julio Jones (shoulder), but it's encouraging to now see three straight very solid games from Ridley as we approach the season's final... Read More

Qadree Ollison Goes Without A Touch In Week 13

Atlanta Falcons running back Qadree Ollison had scored touchdowns in two straight weeks going into the team's Thanksgiving game against the Saints. However, the return of Devonta Freeman unfortunately moved Ollison out of the picture for now. Freeman earned 17 carries in the game and Brian Hill had four carries. It's disappointing to see for...

Brian Hill Goes For Just 37 Yards In Week 13

Atlanta Falcons running back Brian Hill saw his workload decrease significantly with the return of Devonta Freeman. Hill earned just four carries in the game and gained only 13 yards on the ground. He also added three catches for 24 yards in the passing game. Freeman had 17 carries for 51 yards in the game.... Read More

Devonta Freeman Totals 64 Yards On Thanksgiving

Atlanta Falcons running back Devonta Freeman returned to his featured-back role this week after missing the past two games. He had 17 carries for 51 yards and added four catches for 13 yards in the game. Brian Hill was relegated to No. 2 status and only had four carries in the game, while Qadree Ollison,... Read More

Matt Ryan Has Three Turnovers On Thanksgiving

Atlanta Falcons quarterback Matt Ryan had a rough day on Thanksgiving against the Saints. He threw two interceptions, lost a fumble and was sacked nine times. His fantasy day wasn't horrible as he threw for 312 yards and two touchdowns, but the turnovers should knock him out of the QB1 tier for this week. Ryan... Read More

Start The Bills Defense Without Hesitation In Week 13

The Bills Defense absolutely smothered the Broncos in Week 12, holding the team to just 134 yards from scrimmage and three points in the game. This week, they face a bigger test against the Cowboys in Dallas. The Cowboys are the sixth-highest scoring team in the league this year, averaging around 27 points per game.... Read More

2 weeks ago

Dawson Knox Shouldn't Be Started In Week 13

Buffalo Bills tight end Dawson Knox is essentially a touchdown-or-bust tight end for now. He's only scored two touchdowns on the year, so the likelihood of a solid fantasy game for him is very low, especially this week against a strong Cowboys pass defense. Knox has only topped 25 receiving yards on four occasions this... Read More
