In Week 11, Josh Allen scorched the Dolphins Defense for three touchdowns through the air and one touchdown on the ground, finishing as the No. 1 quarterback on the week. As expected, Lamar Jackson and Dak Prescott finished as top-five quarterbacks, while Sam Darnold rebounded in a "get well" matchup against the Redskins. Kyle Allen... Read More

Terry McLaurin Has A 67-Yard Catch Called Back

Washington Redskins wide receiver Terry McLaurin looked explosive in the Redskins Week 11 loss to the Jets, catching three of his four targets for 69 yards. The Jets outside cornerbacks have been terrible in 2019, and McLaurin could have had an even bigger day if he didn't have a 67-yard catch called back because of... Read More

Wide Receiver / Cornerback Matchups To Target in Week 9

In Week 8, the only unfamiliar faces to crack the top 15 at the wide receiver position were Chris Conley and Hunter Renfrow. Conley's big day came because Dede Westbrook was in and out of the game as he struggled with a shoulder injury, resulting in more targets heading Conley's way. Renfrow was fantasy-relevant because he... Read More

We Must Overreact Immediately! Week 8 Outliers

Week 8 didn't offer too many surprises for the most part. There were, however, a few players that registered multiple-touchdown performances which elevated them up the ranks, such as Aaron Jones (2 TD), Tevin Coleman (4 TD), Latavius Murray (2 TD) and Mike Evans (2 TD). For the most part, the players that scored multiple... Read More

Wide Receiver Matchups To Target in Week 8

We Must Overreact Immediately! Week 7 Outliers

Week 7 seemed extremely fluky for fantasy football purposes. Devonta Freeman was ejected, and players like Will Fuller, Adam Thielen and Kerryon Johnson were both forced from their games very early on which hurt a lot of fantasy owners. The Rams wide receivers were supposed to light the world on fire against a Falcons secondary that... Read More

Wide Receiver Matchups To Target in Week 7

In Week 6, Julio Jones didn't score, but he came through with a decent fantasy day, going over 100-yards receiving.

We Must Overreact Immediately! Week 6 Outliers

In Week 6, several players exploded in fantasy lineups. There were a few receivers that were above the rest of the pack in Week 6, such as Stefon Diggs, Terry McLaurin, Chris Godwin and Tyreek Hill, but there shouldn't be any surprises there as those guys should have been in fantasy lineups. At the quarterback... Read More

Wide Receiver Waiver Wire Pickups - Week 7

We weren't really surprised by the top-scoring fantasy wide receivers from Week 6. Out of the top-20 receivers, only Jamison Crowder, Auden Tate and Jaron Brown were less than 50% owned. Jaron Brown (0% owned) was only targeted five times but he scored two touchdowns off of those five targets. Auden Tate (23% owned) hauled... Read More
