We Must Overreact Immediately! Week 2 Outliers

Through the first two weeks of the NFL season, we are starting to get a better handle on whether certain players are breaking out, or are one-week wonders.

Tyler Eifert Scores Against The 49ers

Cincinnati Bengals tight end Tyler Eifert was targeted five times on Sunday against the San Francisco 49ers, hauling in three of them for just nine yards and one touchdown.

Tyler Boyd Has A Big Day In Week 2

Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver Tyler Boyd led all Bengals receivers in Week 2 with 10 targets. Boyd turned those 10 targets into 10 catches and 122 scoreless yards.

Joe Mixon Can't Get Going Against The 49ers

Cincinnati Bengals running back Joe Mixon (ankle) started in Week 2 against the San Francisco 49ers and simply couldn't get anything going on the ground or in the passing game. Mixon carried the ball 11 times for just 17 yards and added three catches for a mere 10 yards. In fairness to Mixon, he really... Read More

Wide Receiver Matchups To Target in Week 2

In Week 1 we nailed some of the wide receiver matchups to target, but we got some wrong too. Heading into Week 2, it's always a good idea to go back through the decision making process you used the week prior to see where you went wrong. San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Dante Pettis came...

Mark Ingram Owners Need To Have Gus Edwards

Baltimore Ravens running back Gus Edwards played more snaps (38.16%) than starter Mark Ingram (32.89%) in Week 1, but Ingram is the clear starter in the Ravens backfield. Last week, Edwards saw an increase in playing time because Ingram's shoulder was banged up and the Ravens had a large lead over the Miami Dolphins. Edwards... Read More

Miles Boykin Should Remain On Waivers

Baltimore Ravens wide receiver Miles Boykin played only 23.68% of the offensive snaps in Week 1. Boykin would have come up extremely small for fantasy purposes if he didn't score a touchdown on his only target of the game. That being said, the Notre Dame product may be the best red-zone threat the Ravens have... Read More

Tyler Eifert Looks To Build On Week 1

Although fellow tight end CJ Uzomah played more snaps (70.67%) than Eifert (49.33%) in Week 1, Eifert participated in a greater percentage of the Bengals passing routes, meaning Uzomah is being asked...

Tyler Boyd Will Be The Man In Week 2

Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver Tyler Boyd had the second-most targets (11) for the Bengals in Week 1, but he should lead the Bengals in that department this week. In Week 2, wide receiver John Ross should line up against San Francisco 49ers cornerback Richard Sherman for roughly 50 percent of his routes. If quarterback Andy... Read More

Giovani Bernard Could Shine In Week 2

Cincinnati Bengals running back Giovani Bernard will have a big Week 2 if Joe Mixon misses the game because of his ankle injury. Mixon's status will need to be monitored throughout Sunday morning, but if he misses the game, Bernard will be a must-start fantasy running back in leagues of all sizes. Bernard made two...

Cleveland Browns wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. had a modest seven-catch, 71-yard performance in his debut for the Browns.

Wide Receiver Matchups To Target in Week 1

Week 1 of the NFL season is upon us and considering how little offensive and defensive starters played this preseason, we don't have much to go off of to project how new players and coaches will impact teams on both sides of the ball.  Early on in the season, we will need to use 2018... Read More

Robert Woods Ready To Go Against Carolina

Los Angeles Rams wide receiver Robert Woods appears to have the toughest matchup out of all the Rams receivers on Sunday, as he figures to see a lot of Panthers cornerback James Bradberry.

Greg Zuerlein Is Back To Legatron Status

Although Los Angeles Rams kicker Greg Zuerlein dealt with injuries late in 2018, he is back and full go heading into the 2019 season. The Rams-Panthers game this Sunday is one of four games featuring an over/under of 50 or more points, making Zuerlein a good bet to get some field-goal opportunities this week. Zuerlein... Read More
