2016 Fantasy Football Sleeper - Wide Receiver Chris Hogan

Even though the Buffalo Bills had a resurgence at the quarterback position last season with the improved play of Tyrod Taylor, Chris Hogan's year-to-year stats fell in targets, catches and touchdowns from 2014 to 2015. So what's his outlook for the 2016 fantasy football season? I'm glad you asked, because I like his current ADP... Read More

This Thursday Night Football matchups preview will be the best one written this season, because the action is tripled and runs all day long.

Thursday Night Matchups: Allen Hurns, Julius Thomas, Delanie Walker & More

Hearing that the Tennessee Titans and Jacksonville Jaguars have the premier Thursday Night Football time slot would usually draw yawns in years past, but there should be points aplenty this time around. Both are fighting for their playoff lives in the lackluster AFC South, with the Jaguars just a game back of the Colts and the Texans... Read More

Thursday Night Matchups: Karlos Williams, Sammy Watkins, Chris Ivory & More

Rex Ryan is trying his hardest to hype up this week's Thursday Night Football matchup between the Buffalo Bills and New York Jets, wearing helmets into his press conferences and appointing team captains that may rustle a few feathers. But if there's one thing that Jets fans know for sure, it is that his pre-game antics doesn't always... Read More

Thursday Night Matchups: Andy Dalton, A.J. Green, Gary Barnidge & More

There are four undefeated teams remaining in the NFL, three hail from the AFC and one is playing on Thursday Night Football.

Thursday Night Matchups: Lamar Miller, Dion Lewis, Ryan Tannehill & More

What a difference two weeks can make.

Thursday Night NFL Matchups Analysis: Week 7 Start/Sit for Fantasy Football

The Seattle Seahawks defense has allowed game-winning drives in the closing moments of back-to-back games against the Cincinnati Bengals and Carolina Panthers. Staring at a 2-4 record and an early matchup with division rival San Francisco 49ers, the quest to appear in three straight Super Bowls is looking shaky. Aside from their real-life scenario, there's also the... Read More

Drew Brees (QB, NO) - Thursday Night Lineup Busts?

Brees has been startable this season, but it seems as if his explosive days are over. The turnovers, like with Ryan, have been dragging down what would be above-average fantasy quarterback numbers. Brees has an interception in three of his four starts this season and has lost fumbles to go along with them. The defensive-minded Atlanta... Read More

Mark Ingram, Brandin Cooks - Thursday Night Lineup Booms?

Mark Ingram (RB, NO) The big New Orleans back has been the most consistent rusher for the Saints this season, but he finally had a single-digit fantasy point game last week as the Saints fell behind early. Ingram is a lock to have 15 touches a game and is used enough in the red zone where... Read More

Devonta Freeman (RB, ATL) - Thursday Night Lineup Booms?

The Falcons' sophomore has been the most surprising running back of the fantasy season, scoring eight total touchdowns and being the most productive running back since Week 3. There is just no reason to think Freeman is going to slow down, even if Tevin Coleman is slowly eased back into the mix. The Falcons' offense... Read More

Julio Jones, Matt Ryan - Thursday Night Lineup Booms?

Julio Jones (WR, ATL) It appears Julio Jones will be ready to go for the quick turnaround and plans to play at nearly 100%.

Atlanta Falcons (DEF, ATL) - Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Week 6 Matchup Streamer ANALYSIS: The Atlanta defense has scored three touchdowns in the past two games after going scoreless in the first three outings. With a Saints team that will cough up the ball rather easily, don't let the past successes of Drew Brees deter you. The Atlanta defense is a quality defense play this... Read More

Is Willie Snead A Deeper Week 5 Lineup Sleeper?

It is amazing that this guy is only owned in 17% of Fleaflicker leagues at this point of the season. Coming into the season, the Saints were expected to be very thin at WR, with the exception of Brandin Cooks. Marques Colston and Brandon Coleman were supposed to be the second and third options for... Read More

Thursday Night NFL Matchups Analysis: Week 5 Start/Sit for Fantasy Football

A lot of question marks are hoping to get answered during the Thursday Night Football prime time matchup between AFC South opponents.

Four Late Round Wide Receiver Sleepers You Should Be Drafting

Especially with half-point and full-point PPR leagues, wide receivers that earn targets from their quarterbacks are some of the most sought after pieces in fantasy football drafts.

As Latavius Murray Runs, Derek Carr's Fantasy Stock Rises

The optimism is higher than its been in the past decade for the Oakland Raiders, mainly because the organization finally seemed to have solved the riddle at the quarterback position—a riddle that’s has been negatively affecting the franchise since Rich Gannon led the silver and black to a Super Bowl appearance in 2002. The Raiders... Read More

Pierre Garcon's Fantasy Value Slipping By No Fault Of His Own

I feel like Pierre Garcon is one of those wide receivers that is universally rooted for by both the NFL and fantasy football community. Garcon was a sixth-round pick out Mount Union College (one of the strongest Division III programs in the United States), he was an up-and-coming part of an Indianapolis Colts team led... Read More

Projecting Where Wide Receiver Emmanuel Sanders Finishes in 2015

Don’t expect Emmanuel Sanders to have a repeat performance in 2015 despite his highly enjoyable career year last season. Sanders racked up over 100 receptions (5th in NFL) for 1,404 yards (5th in NFL) and nine touchdowns, all career highs. Those touchdowns came in bunches which would be a difficult feat to repeat. In a five-week span, Sanders... Read More

Is Mike Wallace Ready to Return to WR1 Status in 2015?

People don’t like to use Mike Wallace’s time spent in Pittsburgh as a tool to project his first year with the Minnesota Vikings for the upcoming season and that’s totally fair—it was a while ago after all. Wallace last played for the Steelers in the 2012 season, catching 64 passes and eight touchdowns. He played... Read More
