Falcons Defense Is Best To Avoid In Week 17

The Falcons Defense has performed adequately well over the past few weeks, but it's still been a rough year on the whole for the unit. This week, the Falcons face the Buccaneers, a team that put up 35 points on them about a month ago. While the Falcons defense should be able to keep Jameis... Read More

Younghoe Koo Is A Worthy Starter In Week 17

Atlanta Falcons kicker Younghoe Koo has only hit two field goals over the past two weeks, but his track record on the season still remains strong. Plus, the Falcons should find themselves in plenty of scoring opportunities in Week 17 against the Buccaneers. Koo has hit 18 of his 21 field goal attempts on the... Read More

Atlanta Falcons tight end Austin Hooper had a solid bounce-back game in Week 16 against the Jaguars. He caught seven of his nine targets for 82 yards in the game. This week, Hooper and the Falcons face a vulnerable Buccaneers pass defense and they might be without star receiver Julio Jones (knee) in the game.... Read More

Russell Gage A Solid Option For PPR Play In Week 17

Atlanta Falcons wide receiver Russell Gage is in a good place going into Week 17. Gage has caught five or more passes in four of his past five games. This week, Gage and the Falcons face a very favorable matchup against a generous Buccaneers pass defense. The team might be without Julio Jones (knee) in... Read More

Qadree Ollison Too Risky To Start In Week 17

The Atlanta Falcons have continued to utilize rookie running back Qadree Ollison effectively in goal-line situations throughout the season's second half. He has scored four touchdowns since November 17, despite seeing only 18 total carries over that stretch. Ollison is the definition of a touchdown-or-bust running back and his workload is too low to enable... Read More

Brian Hill Isn't Worth Fantasy Consideration In Week 17

Atlanta Falcons running back Brian Hill saw seven carries in Week 16 against the Jaguars and made the most of them. He rushed for 66 yards in the game, good for 9.4 yards per carry.

Atlanta Falcons quarterback Matt Ryan threw for 384 passing yards in Week 16, his second-highest yardage output of the season. This week, Ryan and the Falcons have a favorable matchup against a very vulnerable Buccaneers pass defense.

Julio Jones Is A Must-Start If Active In Week 17

Atlanta Falcons wide receiver Julio Jones (knee) has been held out of practice so far this week and his status for Week 17 against the Buccaneers is currently in question. If he misses the game, Matt Ryan takes a small hit, while Austin Hooper, Russell Gage and Devonta Freeman would get a boost. If Jones... Read More

Bills Defense In A Decent Spot For Week 17 Production

The Bills Defense has been exceptional this year and they go into Week 17 facing a Jets offense that ranks dead last in the league in yards per game (273.1). On paper, the Bills would appear to be in perfect shape for a dominant fantasy week. However, the team is locked into the fifth seed... Read More

Dawson Knox Isn't Trustworthy In Week 17

Buffalo Bills tight end Dawson Knox hasn't produced a solid fantasy game since Week 11 against the Dolphins, when he caught two passes for 32 yards and a touchdown. He has just two touchdowns on the year and has only topped 50 receiving yards in a game on three occasions. This week, the Bills face... Read More

Cole Beasley Has Low-End PPR Value In Week 17

Buffalo Bills wide receiver Cole Beasley posted his second 100-yard game of the year in Week 16 against the Patriots. This week, Beasley and the Bills face the Jets in a game that is essentially meaningless for the Bills as they are locked into the fifth seed in the AFC playoffs. The team has reported... Read More

John Brown Is Best To Avoid In Week 17 Vs Jets

There appears to be a solid chance that Buffalo Bills wide receiver John Brown will sit out the team's Week 17 game against the Jets. The Bills are locked into the fifth seed in the AFC playoffs, so it would make sense if they chose to rest their top offensive playmaker. Even if Brown does... Read More

T.J. Yeldon Still Not Relevant For Fantasy Play

Buffalo Bills running back T.J. Yeldon has been inactive for nine straight games as the team has gone exclusively with Devin Singletary and Frank Gore in their backfield. The team hasn't announced a change of plans for Yeldon in Week 17 against the Jets. However, since the Bills are locked into the fifth seed in... Read More

Frank Gore Should Be Avoided In Week 17

Buffalo Bills running back Frank Gore has been held under 20 rushing yards in three straight games, despite a total of 23 carries over that stretch. With the Bills locked into the fifth seed in the AFC playoffs, it's hard to know how much the Bills will deploy Gore and No. 1 running back Devin... Read More

Devin Singletary Is A Decent RB2 Option In Week 17

Buffalo Bills running back Devin Singletary has seen at least 14 carries in each of his last six games. Despite scoring only one touchdown over that stretch, he's performed like a low-end RB2 through his high yardage output. This week, the Bills face the Jets in a game that's meaningless for them as they are... Read More

Josh Allen Might Be Risky In Week 17

There's been nothing yet to suggest that Buffalo Bills quarterback Josh Allen won't start the team's Week 17 matchup against the Jets. However, the Bills are locked into the fifth seed in the AFC and with nothing to play for in Week 17, the Bills could very well end up resting Allen for around half... Read More

Donte DiVincenzo (SG, MIL) - Week 10 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add In 12-Team Leagues OWNED IN: 28% of leagues ANALYSIS: Milwaukee Bucks shooting guard Donte Divincenzo has received some steady playing time this year, especially since the team lost Eric Bledsoe (leg) to a broken fibula. Bledsoe should be out at least another week, which makes DiVencenzo a fantastic short-term add, but he could... Read More
