Week 11 is here, and that means that there is only one more week left for the dreaded bye weeks. This time around the Cowboys, Ravens, Jets and Jaguars are off.

We are at Week 8, the halfway point of the NFL season, and another week of byes. The Giants and 49ers have the time to rest, forcing a few key players to your bench, but nothing too drastic. Four of the five players on this list are running backs, which is very likely not the... Read More

Malcom Floyd (WR, SD) - Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in Deeper PPR Leagues / Stash in Standard Leagues ANALYSIS: Malcom Floyd is a wide receiver that I like for fantasy football, but is also a hard guy to play every week in standard leagues. In Week 1 of the NFL season, he surprised for 11 fantasy points for non-PPR scoring. After seeing a 75% increase in... Read More
