Another week of NBA action is upon us, and there are things happening, including whatever the Carmelo Anthony situation is in Houston, and the Jimmy Butler trade, and the Kings continuing to be not bad. It's a weird week! You can find a long breakdown of the 76ers and Timberwolves on the site today from... Read More

Jacksonville Jaguars wide receiver Dede Westbrook was targeted a team-high 10 times in Sunday's loss to the Colts, finishing with 30 yards on five catches. Westbrook continues to see a lot of quarterback Blake Bortles' targets, but he's also failed to reach the 50-yard mark in four straight games and looks to be a touchdown-dependent... Read More

Jacksonville Jaguars tight end James O'Shaughnessy returned after missing Jacksonville's past two games and caught five passes in Sunday's Week 10 loss to the Colts. He finished with 46 yards and was targeted six times. It was O'Shaughnessy's most productive game of the season, though it would take another similar follow-up for fantasy owners to... Read More

Jacksonville Jaguars wide receiver Donte Moncrief got a chance to go against his former team, the Indianapolis Colts, on Sunday, and while the Jaguars didn't manage to take them down, Moncrief did get a huge highlight play, catching an 80-yard touchdown as part of a three-catch, 98-yard performance. Moncrief has targeted just four times, though,... Read More

Despite the return of Leonard Fournette cutting into his carries, Jacksonville Jaguars running back T.J. Yeldon maintained some value in Week 10 thanks to his receiving ability. Yeldon caught five passes for 51 yards in Sunday's loss and added 12 rushing yards on three carries. While Yeldon's value in standard leagues is virtually nonexistent with... Read More

Jacksonville Jaguars running back Carlos Hyde barely saw the field on Sunday against the Colts, ending the day with five rushing yards on three carries. With Leonard Fournette (hamstring) back in the lineup, Hyde isn't a fantasy relevant option moving forward unless Fournette misses more time, and even then he faces an uphill battle behind... Read More

It's been a rough year for Jacksonville Jaguars running back Leonard Fournette, who has dealt with hamstring issues off and on and played in just two games before Jacksonville's bye week. But Fournette was back on the field against the Colts in Week 10, and it was like he'd never been gone at all. The second-year... Read More

Jacksonville Jaguars quarterback Blake Bortles threw for 320 yards and a pair of touchdowns in Sunday's loss to the Indianapolis Colts. He completed 26 of his 38 passing attempts and didn't turn the ball over. The embattled quarterback also added eight yards on the ground. It's been an up and down year for Bortles, who... Read More

Chris Carson Out Against Rams

Seattle Seahawks running back Chris Carson (hip) won't play against the Rams. Expect Mike Davis to see the bulk of the carries against a Rams defense that has allowed four rushing touchdowns to running backs over the past two games. Consider Davis a strong RB2/flex option this week. Hot Trending ArticlesWeek 11 Defense (DEF) Streamers... Read More

Golden State Warriors point guard Quinn Cook started on Saturday against the Nets with Stephen Curry out, and Cook was big for the Warriors. He scored 27 points on 11-for-16 shooting and added five assists and three rebounds. With Curry expected to miss a little time, Cook can be a good streaming option in a... Read More

Brooklyn Nets guard Joe Harris scored 24 points on 9-for-12 shooting in Saturday's loss to the Golden State Warriors. He was 4-for-6 from three and added two assists, a rebound, and a steal. Harris has had a strong impact as a shooter for the Nets this year and should be a safe play on Monday... Read More

Houston Rockets guard Gerald Green (ankle) and forward Carmelo Anthony (illness) will both miss Sunday's meeting with the Indiana Pacers. Expect an uptick in minutes and usage for Gary Clark off the Rockets bench, who could be a DFS sleeper in this contest with Houston thin on the bench. Hot Trending ArticlesWeek 11 Defense (DEF)... Read More

New Orleans Saints linebacker Manti Te'o won't play in Week 10. Despite not appearing on the injury list all week, the Saints will be without their starting linebacker for a meeting with a good Bengals offense. This should be good for Cincinnati, especially running back Joe Mixon, who will have more space to work with... Read More

The Washington Redskins will be without running back Chris Thompson and wide receiver Jamison Crowder for Sunday's meeting with Tampa Bay. In the running game, expect to see heavy doses of Adrian Peterson with some Kapri Bibbs mixed in, while the Redskins passing game should rely more on tight ends Jordan Reed and Vernon Davis... Read More

Chicago Bears wide receiver Kevin White has been made a healthy scratch for Week 10's meeting with the Detroit Lions. The Bears have found some good pieces at wide receiver this season, and the former first-round pick hasn't been able to carve out time in the rotation. He's still worth a roster spot in deep... Read More

New York Jets wide receiver Robby Anderson (ankle) won't play in Week 10 against the Bills. New York will use Quincy Enunwa and Jermaine Kearse more in the passing game, but a difficult matchup with a strong Bills passing defense makes it tough to trust either guy as more than a deep league flex option.... Read More

New England Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowksi (ankle, back) will not play in Week 10 against the Tennessee Titans. With Gronkowksi out, expect to see the Patriots use wide receivers Josh Gordon and Julian Edelman and running back James White more in the passing game. All three should see a slight fantasy bump. Hot Trending... Read More

Seattle Seahawks running back Chris Carson (groin) is a game-time decision for Seattle's Week 10 meeting with the Rams, but the expectation is that Carson will not play. Mike Davis will lead the backfield with Carson out and with how much the Seahawks are running the ball this year, Davis is a solid flex option... Read More

Tampa Bay Buccaneers running back Ronald Jones II (hamstring) will miss Sunday's meeting against the Washington Redskins. The rookie spent the early part of the year as a healthy inactive and now is dealing with this hamstring issue, which has made his rookie season into a tough one for Tampa Bay. Expect Peyton Barber to... Read More

Buffalo Bills quarterback Josh Allen (elbow) will miss Week 10's meeting with the Jets, but is expected to return in Week 12 following the team's bye week. While the rookie has struggled at times, he's been the Bills best quarterback, and the only one worth fantasy consideration in deeper or two-quarterback leagues. Matt Barkley will... Read More

Chicago Bears defensive lineman Khalil Mack (ankle) should return in Week 10 after missing the past two games. Mack's presence on the court puts a hurting on the fantasy chances of the Detroit Lions, especially when Matthew Stafford was sacked 10 times in Week 9. Expect the Bears to get after Stafford early and to... Read More

Detroit Lions running back Kerryon Johnson (ankle) is expected to play on Sunday against the Bears. The Bears boast a strong defense and Johnson is still sharing backfield touches with LeGarrette Blount, but Johnson can be a solid flex option barring any pre-game setbacks. Hot Trending ArticlesWeek 11 Defense (DEF) Streamers and Starts - 2018... Read More

The New Orleans Saints could bring wide receiver Dez Bryant (Achilles) back in 2019, according to NFL.com's Ian Rapoport. With a recovery window between six and eight months, Bryant won't be healthy by the time free agency rolls around, but the Saints liked what they saw in his try out and would be willing to...

Matt Barkley Starting For Bills

Buffalo Bills quarterback Matt Barkley will start in Week 10 against the Jets, Barkley's first NFL start since January 2017 when he started a game for the Chicago Bears. He'll face a tough Jets defense on Sunday, but Barkley can't be any worse than Nathan Peterman has been for the Bills. While he's not a... Read More

With it looking more and more likely that Le'Veon Bell won't report to the team, the Steelers will need running back James Conner this year to keep up their playoff hopes. Conner, who is currently in concussion protocol after Thursday's win over the Panthers, could miss Week 11's meeting with the Jaguars, but the team... Read More

Philadelphia Eagles running back Darren Sproles (hamstring) was hoping to return in Week 10, but after suffering a setback in practice, the team expects him to miss another three or four weeks. That leaves the Eagles backfield in the hands of Corey Clement, Wendell Smallwood, and Josh Adams, and introduces some uncertainty to Sproles chance... Read More

I'll admit to being one of the people who were skeptical about Dennis Schroder signing with Oklahoma City. For a still-young point guard, backing up Russell Westbrook isn't the ideal scenario to find yourself in. But with Westbrook missing some time -- and even with Westbrook back in the lineup -- Schroder has found a... Read More

Nikola Jokic Scores 37 In Loss

Denver Nuggets center Nikola Jokic scored 37 points on 14-for-22 shooting in Friday's loss to the Brooklyn Nets. Jokic also added 21 rebounds and three assists. It was another strong outing from one of the top options in fantasy basketball, and while Sunday's meeting with the Bucks should be a tough one, Jokic does too... Read More

Brooklyn Nets center Jarrett Allen scored 18 points on 7-for-14 shooting in Friday's win over the Denver Nuggets. He grabbed nine rebounds and added in five blocked shots. Allen is blocking 2.1 shots per night on the season and had a pair of them the last time he met Saturday's opponent, the Golden State Warriors.... Read More

Brooklyn Nets point guard D'Angelo Russell put up 23 points in Friday's win over the Denver Nuggets. He was 7-for-14 from the field and also added five assists, four rebounds, and a pair of steals. Brooklyn faces the Warriors on Saturday night, who Russell had a highly-efficient 25 points against earlier this year. Russell has... Read More
