Kenny Stills A WR5 In Week 13

Miami Dolphins wide receiver Kenny Stills is a weak option in Week 13 against Buffalo. Stills hasn't had more than two receptions in a game since Week 4, and hasn't scored double-digit points since Week 3. He caught media attention this week after openly criticizing Miami's quarterback play, which is the only notable catch he's... Read More

Frank Gore A Low-End Flex In Week 13

Miami Dolphins running back Frank Gore is a low-end flex option in Week 13 against Buffalo. Gore is normally good for about 15 touches per game, but he isn't involved in the passing game and hasn't scored a rushing touchdown all season. He is a reliable between-the-tackles runner for Miami, but not a high-ceiling option... Read More

Kenyan Drake A Flex Play In Week 13

Miami Dolphins running back Kenyan Drake is a high-risk flex option in Week 13 against Buffalo. Drake is coming off his best performance of the season, a two-touchdown game against Indianapolis in Week 13. He is getting around 10-13 touches per game as of late, and Drake is explosive enough to make something of those... Read More

Ryan Tannehill A Poor Option In Week 13

Miami Dolphins quarterback Ryan Tannehill is a poor option in a Week 13 matchup with Buffalo. Tannehill put up 17.56 points in standard scoring last week against Indianapolis, his first game since Week 5 because of a shoulder injury. He draws a much tougher matchup this week, as the Bills have allowed the fewest points... Read More

Week 13 Quarterbacks - Waiver Wire Pickups and Adds

We've got some exciting options still on waivers this week, as a few potentially league-winning quarterbacks are still available in far too many leagues. There are no more bye weeks, which means fewer owners will need fill-in quarterbacks. It also means there will be less competition on waivers for quarterbacks, and a few high-end backups...

Josh Allen (QB, BUF) - Week 13 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 2-QB  Leagues OWNED IN: 2% of Leagues ANALYSIS: Buffalo Bills quarterback Josh Allen is raw in terms of passing ability, but he put up 26.3 points thanks to a 13 carry, 99 yard, one touchdown rushing performance this week against Jacksonville. He went just 8-for-19 passing for 160 yards and a touchdown... Read More

Colt McCoy (QB, WSH) - Week 13 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 2-QB  Leagues OWNED IN: 4% of Leagues ANALYSIS: The Eagles were without their top three cornerbacks in Week 12, and those injured players joined three other defensive backs on the sidelines, as Philadelphia’s secondary has been decimated by injury like no other. Poor Malcolm Jenkins is left picking up the slack of... Read More

Leonte Carroo Catches Long Touchdown In Week 12

Miami Dolphins wide receiver Leonte Carroo made the most of his only catch in Miami's 27-24 loss to Indianapolis in Week 12. Carroo caught one pass on two targets for 74 yards and a touchdown. Carroo went over the head of Colts cornerback Pierre Desir and made a nice catch. He then caused the defender... Read More

Danny Amendola Catches Only Target In Week 12

Miami Dolphins wide receiver Danny Amendola found targets hard to come by in Miami's 27-24 loss to Indianapolis in Week 12. Amendola caught one pass on one target for 13 yards in the game. He had been playing much better with Brock Osweiler under center, but with Tannehill back Amendola's already meager fantasy value has... Read More

DeVante Parker Musters Just 10 Receiving Yards In Week 12

Miami Dolphins wide receiver Devante Parker was not productive in Miami's 27-24 loss to Indianapolis in Week 12. He caught three passes on three targets for ten yards, with a long of nine. Ryan Tannehill played this one pretty safe, perhaps to the detriment of his own team. The only successful deep ball went to... Read More

Kenny Stills Quiet Again In Week 12

Miami Dolphins wide receiver Kenny Stills had another quiet day in Miami's 27-24 Week 12 loss to Indianapolis. Stills caught one pass for six yards on three targets. He hasn't caught more than two passes since Week 4, and hasn't caught more than four passes in a game all season. Stills came into the season... Read More

Kenyan Drake Scores Twice In Week 12

Miami Dolphins running back Kenyan Drake was involved in the offense in Miami's 27-24 loss to Indianapolis in Week 12. Drake rushed eight times for 32 yards and a touchdown, and also caught five passes for 64 yards and caught a touchdown. While he was slightly out-touched by Frank Gore 15-13, Drake out-gained Gore 96-77.... Read More

Frank Gore Totals 77 Yards In Week 12

Miami Dolphins running back Frank Gore was heavily involved in their 27-24 loss to Indianapolis in Week 12. Gore rushed 14 times for 67 yards and caught one pass for ten yards. He out-touched Kenyan Drake 15-13, but Drake put up more total yardage and scored a touchdown. Gore is Miami's between the tackles runner,... Read More

Ryan Tannehill Tosses Two Touchdowns In Return

Miami Dolphins quarterback Ryan Tannehill played well in his return in Miami's 27-24 loss to Indianapolis in Week 12. He went 17-for-25 passing for 204 yards and two touchdowns. He was out-dueled by Andrew Luck, but that's to be expected. Tannehill should offer an upgrade to Miami receivers over Ryan Tannehill, but he didn't target... Read More

Danny Amendola Will Play In Week 12

Miami Dolphins wide receiver Danny Amendola will play in Week 12 against Indianapolis. Amendola was questionable all week with a hamstring injury. He suffered the injury back in Week 10, and Miami's Week 11 bye certainly helped him recover more quickly. He had developed a nice rapport with Brock Osweiler and became a low-ceiling PPR...

DeVante Parker Active For Week 12

Miami Dolphins wide receiver Devante Parker (shoulder) will play in Week 12 against Indianapolis. Parker was questionable all week after exiting early in the Dolphins' last back in Week 10 with the injury. Miami's Week 11 bye was certainly fortuitous in aiding Parker's recovery. The return of Ryan Tannehill may give Parker a slight boost... Read More

Kenny Stills Looking To Reconnect With Ryan Tannehill Week 12

Miami Dolphins wide receiver Kenny Stills will get a chance to reconnect with quarterback Ryan Tannehill in Week 12 against Indianapolis. Stills averaged 8.42 standard points per game with Tannehill as quarterback, and averaged just 4.13 points per game with Brock Osweiler. Tannehill should help bring the boom back into Stills' boom-or-bust play style. He's... Read More

Kenyan Drake A Desperation Play In Week 12

Miami Dolphins running back Kenyan Drake is a desperation play in Week 12 against Indianapolis. Drake has ceded work to Frank Gore over the past few weeks and can't be relied on for consistent production. Indianapolis has allowed the 17th most fantasy points per game to opposing running backs, meaning the matchup can't make up... Read More

1 year ago

Frank Gore A Flex Option In Week 12

Miami Dolphins running back Frank Gore is a flex option in Week 12 against Indianapolis. Gore is coming off a 13-carry, 90-yard performance in Week 10 against Green Bay before his bye week. Gore has been on the strong side of a split with Kenyan Drake, and should get more touches this week. Indianapolis has... Read More

Ryan Tannehill A Two-QB Option Only In Week 12

Miami Dolphins quarterback Ryan Tannehill will return to the gridiron in Week 12 against the Indianapolis Colts. Tannehill hasn't played since Week 5 due to a shoulder injury. He was not a viable option in one-quarterback leagues before the injury, and is a low-end two-quarterback league play coming back. He was averaging under 13 points... Read More

Lamar Jackson (QB, BAL) - Week 12 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 12-Team Leagues OWNED IN: 18% of Leagues ANALYSIS: Marty Mornhinweg and the Ravens took an alternative approach to their gameplan this week, and quarterback Lamar Jackson had a stat line that looked more like that of a bell cow running back than a quarterback. He rushed 27 times for 117 yards, while... Read More

Jameis Winston (QB, TB) - Week 12 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 14-Team Leagues OWNED IN: 9% of Leagues ANALYSIS: Oh Dirk Koetter, how about a little decisiveness? A little conviction. No more waffling, no more flip-flopping, no more mid-game quarterback changes. You’re the head coach of an NFL football team for Pete’s sake. Your own team isn’t going anywhere, but at least stop...

Week 12 Quarterbacks - Waiver Wire Pickups and Adds

It was another week full of excitement, tragedy, and confusion at the quarterback position. We had some tough injuries, mid-game benchings, and several exciting deep league options at quarterback for Week 12. Only two teams are on bye this week, but they are big ones. No Patrick Mahomes or Jared Goff this week, as both... Read More

Colt McCoy (QB, WSH) - Week 12 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in Two-QB Leagues OWNED IN: 0% of Leagues ANALYSIS: Alex Smith is done for the season after suffering a gruesome broken leg in Washington’s Week 11 loss to Houston, which leaves Colt McCoy as the Redskins' starter for the rest of the way. Smith already wasn’t producing fantasy numbers before going down, so on the... Read More

Nick Mullens (QB, SF) - Week 12 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in Tw0-QB Leagues OWNED IN: 7% of Leagues ANALYSIS: San Francisco 49ers quarterback Nick Mullens is still pretty green, as we saw in Week 10 against the Giants, but just about anyone is worthy of consideration against Tampa Bay’s defense. They have allowed at least 20 points in all games except one and... Read More

Eli Manning (QB, NYG) - Week 12 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 14 Team Leagues OWNED IN: 23% of Leagues ANALYSIS: While he didn’t erupt against a bad defense, New York Giants quarterback Eli Manning did everything required of him to pull out the win over Tampa Bay in Week 11. He had only one incompletion and nearly posted a perfect passer rating. That... Read More

Busts and Disappointments - 2018 Year-in-Review

Love ‘em or hate ‘em (and you probably hate ‘em), busts are a huge part of fantasy baseball. While it’s fun to gush over all the new breakout stars of 2018, we also need to reflect on the players that made us want to pull our hair out last season. Highly-drafted busts can be season... Read More

Week 11 Quarterback Waiver Wire Adds and Pickups

It was a good week for post-hype quarterbacks, as several former high draft picks or one-year sensations had nice games around the NFL. Dak Prescott leads the way, but there are multiple strong options for streaming on waivers this week. Six teams are on bye this week, but Tom Brady is the only widely-owned quarterback... Read More

Case Keenum (QB, DEN) - Week 11 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 14-Team Leagues OWNED IN: 17% of Leagues ANALYSIS: Coming off the bye, the Broncos and quarterback Case Keenum will have to figure out how to get Courtland Sutton more involved and utilize the receivers they have now that Demaryius Thomas is in Houston. Their Week 11 opponent, the L.A. Chargers, allow an average of 254 passing... Read More

Blake Bortles (QB, JAC) - Week 11 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in Two-QB Leagues OWNED IN: 22% of Leagues ANALYSIS: Jacksonville Jaguars quarterback Blake Bortles had a solid fantasy day in Week 10, putting up 21.6 points in a loss to Indianapolis. He draws another good matchup in Week 11, taking on Pittsburgh at home. The Steelers have allowed 20.2 fantasy points per game... Read More
