Hunter Henry Remains A Solid TE Option

Hunter Henry is coming off the heels of a monster performance against the Steelers. He made good on eight of his nine targets where he stacked up 100 yards and a touchdown. The Titans are a middle of the pack defense against the TE position, and they've only faced one legitimate threat in Austin Hooper... Read More

Philip Rivers Not An Ideal Stream In Week 7

Philip Rivers and the Chargers are facing a stingy Titans Defense this week. In the last three weeks, the Titans have only allowed two passing touchdowns. Meanwhile, in Rivers’ last three games he’s passed for four touchdowns and 4 interceptions, which included a juicy matchup against the Dolphins that helped pad his stats. Rivers is... Read More

Melvin Gordon Won’t Return To Fantasy Dominance This Week

Melvin Gordon has been off to a shaky start this year after missing four weeks of the season due to his holdout. He’s put up a lowly 31 and 18 yards respectively in his first two games. He plays a stiff Titans run defense this week. On the season, the Titans haven’t allowed much fantasy... Read More

Austin Ekeler Is No More Than A Flex Against The Titans

Austin Ekeler started the season with a bang, but the Ekeler show ended when Melvin Gordon returned to the fold. Ekeler barely left the sidelines last week against the Steelers. Granted, the game script couldn’t have been worse for the Chargers as they found themselves trying to erase a 14 point deficit early in the... Read More

Keenan Allen Relegated To WR2 Status After His Recent Performances

Keenan Allen has pulled a Houdini in recent weeks. The last time he saw more than six targets was back in Week 3 where he received a whopping 17 targets. He faces a middle of the pack passing defense in the Titans who rank 14th against the WR position in the last four games. Philip... Read More

Mike Williams Hopes To Make His First Big Splash This Season

Mike Williams has been a bit of a disappointment this season to those who drafted him. He's been dealing with an injury, but in the last two weeks he saw 13 and 10 targets respectively. If he sees a similar target share this week, he just needs one broken play to post a great stat-line.... Read More

Russell Wilson Looks To Continue Hot Streak Against The Ravens

The Baltimore Ravens Defense isn't nearly as dominant as they were a year ago. They've been involved in a couple high-scoring affairs already this season. Russell Wilson is on a roll right now, he's managed to score more than 30 fantasy points in each of his last two appearances. The Ravens are currently allowing an... Read More

Chris Carson Is A Locked And Loaded RB1 Until Further Notice

Chris Carson is gobbling up the running downs work in Seattle. In the last three weeks, Carson has seen no less than 26 touches in a game. Carson is a true workhorse back. He's going up against a Ravens Defense that ranks 10th against opposing rushers, but don't let that number fool you. Baltimore played... Read More

Chargers Defense Looks To Exploit Tannehill And The Titans

The Chargers play a Tennessee Titans team with newly appointed Ryan Tannehill at the helm. The Chargers have to find a way to contain Derrick Henry if they expect to win, as they currently rank 24th against fantasy RB's. If they can win the battle up front, they might be able to take advantage of... Read More

D.K. Metcalf Is A Low-End WR3 This Week

D.K. Metcalf has pieced together a couple of nice fantasy outings this season, but his outlook for the future is contingent on touchdowns. In games without a touchdown, Metcalf has yet to score more than 10 fantasy points in standard scoring leagues. Baltimore's secondary is exploitable, and there will be more targets to go around...

Tyler Lockett Hopes To Pick Up Steam Against The Ravens

Tyler Lockett's out-of-this-world touchdown per catch ratio has finally caught up with him this season. Russell Wilson is distributing the ball more, and it's been at Lockett's detriment. In weeks 2 and 3, Lockett saw double-digit targets in each game and converted those into nice fantasy outings. Now that Will Dissly is out of the... Read More

Luke Willson Won't Fill The Gap Left By Will Dissly's Absence

Despite being the starting tight end last week, Luke Willson was only able to scrape together three targets. Baltimore is a neutral-to-slightly bad matchup for TE's, but even in a plus matchup, Willson will only be relevant if he's able to break the plane. Until he builds a track record of decent usage, Willson isn't... Read More

Seahawks Defense Will Have A Tough Time Containing Lamar Jackson

Aside from one poor performance in a divisional matchup against the Steelers, Lamar Jackson has been a fantasy titan. He's a dual-threat QB who's difficult to contain. The problem Baltimore faces right now is the status of Marquise Brown (ankle). If Brown doesn't play, this could pose a problem for Baltimore's passing game. Without Brown,... Read More

Michael Thomas Takes Advantage Of A Missing Jalen Ramsey

Michael Thomas hauled in 8 catches for 89 yards on 12 targets in Sunday's 13-6 win against the Jacksonville Jaguars. Jalen Ramsey wasn't active in Week 6, and Thomas went to work exposing the Jags secondary. Teddy Bridgewater didn't take many deep shots, and when he did, they mainly fell in Ted Ginn Jr.'s direction,... Read More

Jared Cook Strikes Paydirt In Win Against The Jags

Jared Cook has been a touchdown-dependent TE at this point in the season, and on Sunday in week 6, he struck gold. Cook was targeted three times and made good on all of his targets. He finished the day with 37 yards and an impressive touchdown grab over safety Jarrod Wilson. This is now two... Read More

Darren Fells Is The Ultimate Trap in Week 6

Darren Fells is a complete mirage at a position where fantasy owners are desperate to find points. Last week, Fells posted two touchdowns on his only two targets in the game. He’s amassed a mere 13 targets on the season, and although the Kansas City Chiefs Defense has been cushy against the TE position, Fells’... Read More

Avoid The Texans Defense At All Costs This Week

Both the Houston Texans and Kansas City Chiefs Defenses should be avoided this weekend. The Texans are allowing an average of 21.60 fantasy points against the quarterback position, and they’re going to be reeling after letting Matt Ryan put up 37 points last week. Aside from Patrick Mahomes’ performance last week against the Colts, he’s... Read More

Keke Coutee Should Be On Your Fa Bench Until Further Notice

Keke Coutee has yet to find the end zone this season, and his highest target total in a game this year is four. There are a lot of mouths to feed in Houston right now, and Coutee appears to be low on the pecking order. With the amount of fantasy points that should be scored... Read More

Will Fuller Looks To Keep Rolling After A Monster Showing

Welcome back, Will Fuller. Last week, Fuller burst into action with an earth-shattering 217 yards and three touchdowns. When he’s healthy, he’s one of the best deep-ball targets in the league. This was his first game over 70 yards all season, so expect him to come down to earth a bit in Arrowhead. That being... Read More

DeAndre Hopkins Poised To Rebound As A WR1

DeAndre Hopkins hasn’t had the season that fantasy owners expected when they drafted him in the first round. He’s only connected with Deshaun Watson for two touchdowns thus far, and they both came in the season opener against the Saints. Through five games, Hopkins is averaging 8.5 targets per game, and he should be able... Read More

Deshaun Watson Locked In As A QB1 Against The Chiefs

In what looks to be a fantasy bonanza this Sunday, Deshaun Watson is poised for a monster game. On average, the Kansas City Chiefs Defense gives up an average of 250 yards against opposing QB’S. This number includes matchups against Derek Carr and Jacoby Brissett, who wasn’t forced to throw the ball due to game script.... Read More
