Dede Westbrook's Slow Start Continues

Jacksonville Jaguars wide receiver Dede Westbrook caught five of his nine targets in Week 3, finishing with 46 yards while also adding four rushing yards. This was Westbrook's highest yardage total of the year, and while he found the end zone in Week 1, it's still been a tough start to the season for the... Read More

D.J. Chark Catches Touchdown In Week 3

Jacksonville Jaguars wide receiver D.J. Chark found the end zone for the third week in a row, hauling in four catches for 76 yards in Thursday's win over Tennessee. Chark is becoming the favored end zone target for rookie quarterback Gardner Minshew, and that mixed with his speed has made him a valuable fantasy option... Read More

Leonard Fournette Has One Long Run In Week 3

Jacksonville Jaguars running back Leonard Fournette had 11 carries for negative-eight yards at one point in Thursday's win over the Tennessee Titans, but a 69-yard run late helped him finish the game with 15 carries and 66 yards. He also added six receptions for 26 yards. Fournette was having a nightmarish game before that long... Read More

Gardner Minshew Throws Two Early Touchdowns

Jacksonville Jaguars quarterback Gardner Minshew threw a pair of first-quarter touchdowns in Thursday's win over the Tennessee Titans. He ended up with 204 passing yards on 20-for-30 passing and also added 18 rushing yards on four carries.

Chris Conley Is Risky Week 3 Option

Jacksonville Jaguars wide receiver Chris Conley has gotten off to a good start in 2019, with 12 targets through two games. But Conley is also dealing with a hip injury and faces a Titans Defense that has mostly held opposing wide receivers in check to start the season, a pair of things that don't bode... Read More

D.J. Chark Has Upside In Week 3

Jacksonville Jaguars wide receiver D.J. Chark faces a tough Week 3 test against the Tennessee Titans, but his rapport with quarterback Gardner Minshew and his ability to be used as a deep threat make him the Jacksonville wide receiver with the highest upside. He's also got a low floor, and that volatility is likely to... Read More

Dede Westbrook Could Remain In Slump

Jacksonville Jaguars wide receiver Dede Westbrook has had a rough start to the year. If you remove a 15-yard Week 1 touchdown from the equation, Westbrook's other plays look like this: 10 targets, five receptions, 16 yards. Quarterback Gardner Minshew isn't delivering the ball deep to Westbrook and is spreading out his targets among the... Read More

Leonard Fournette Has Juicy Matchup On Thursday

Jacksonville Jaguars running back Leonard Fournette should be considered a strong fantasy start in Week 3. The Jags have made it clear through two weeks that Fournette is the only running back on the team capable of being used offensively -- he played 97 percent of the team's Week 2 snaps -- and the Titans...

Gardner Minshew Has Difficult Week 3 Matchup

Jacksonville Jaguars quarterback Gardner Minshew faces a Titans Defense on Thursday that's been in the middle of the pack so far this year when it comes to defending quarterbacks. The Titans allow the 19th-most fantasy points to opposing passers, and while it's too early to draw major conclusions from that, it's not too early to... Read More

Welcome to another edition of "The Tape Tells All," where I break down some film of an NFL's player performance and try to draw some fantasy football conclusions from that film. This week, I'm looking at Kansas City Chiefs wide receiver Demarcus Robinson, who had a huge game in Week 2 against the Raiders. Robinson... Read More

Teddy Bridgewater (QB, NO) - Week 3 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 14+ team leagues OWNED IN: 0% of leagues ANALYSIS: In the early days of 2019, no position has gone from "yeah, it's really deep" to "umm" faster than quarterback. Andrew Luck retired. Nick Foles broke his collarbone. Ben Roethlisberger's season is over. And in New Orleans, Drew Brees went down with... Read More

Jason Witten (TE, DAL) - Week 3 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 14+ team leagues OWNED IN: 15% of leagues ANALYSIS: I'm sure that a lot of people viewed Jason Witten's return to the Cowboys less as an indication that he was still a productive football player and more as an indictment on his failed broadcasting career, but in Week 2 we got...

Wide Receiver Waiver Wire Pickups - Week 3

Week 2 of the NFL season is (mostly) over. A lot of the best wide receiver performances from the weekend were from players who most folks already own, which makes it a bit tougher to navigate the waiver wire this week. This wasn't like Week 1, where guys like John Ross exploded and were no-doubt... Read More

Nelson Agholor (WR, PHI) - Week 3 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 14+ team leagues OWNED IN: 14% of leagues ANALYSIS: Nelson Agholor's value on the waiver wire depends entirely on the injury outlook of the rest of Philadelphia's receivers. Alshon Jeffery (calf) and DeSean Jackson (groin) were both hurt, playing a combined 17 snaps before exiting the ball game. With them out,... Read More

BALLER MOVE: Add in 12+ team leagues OWNED IN: 5% of leagues ANALYSIS: Kansas City Chiefs wide receiver Demarcus Robinson had himself a game in Week 2, catching all six of his targets for 172 yards and a pair of touchdowns. The Raiders Defense just seemed unable to contain Patrick Mahomes' deep ball, and that... Read More

Raheem Mostert (RB, SF) - Week 3 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 12+ team leagues OWNED IN: 16% of leagues ANALYSIS: With Tevin Coleman (ankle) out, the 49ers turned to a committee approach to the running back position in Sunday's win over the Cincinnati Bengals. Raheem Mostert ended up leading the team in rushing attempts, carrying the ball 13 times for 83 yards... Read More

Keke Coutee Struggles Against Jaguars

Houston Texans wide receiver Keke Coutee made his season debut in Sunday's win over the Jacksonville Jaguars, catching two passes for seven yards. He was targeted four times. If Coutee's going to only be involved in the short passing game, he's going to have no fantasy relevance outside of deep leagues. It's possible that Houston... Read More

Kenny Stills Catches Pair Of Passes

Houston Texans wide receiver Kenny Stills caught a pair of passes for 38 yards in Sunday's Week 2 win over the Jacksonville Jaguars. He was targeted three times. Stills looks like an interesting deep league fantasy option when Houston has a good matchup, but against a defense as good as Jacksonville, he just wasn't able... Read More

Will Fuller Has Four Receptions Against Jaguars

Houston Texans wide receiver Will Fuller had four catches for 40 yards in Houston's Week 2 win over the Jacksonville Jaguars. He was targeted seven times. Sunday was good evidence that Fuller is still the number-two guy on this Texans team even after the trade for Kenny Stills, but it was also a poor day... Read More

DeAndre Hopkins Held In Check

Houston Texans wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins had to spend Sunday's game against the Jacksonville Jaguars shadowed by Jags corner Jalen Ramsey, which was a big part of why Hopkins failed to make much of an impact. Hopkins caught five passes for 40 yards. He led the team with eight targets. Don't let this game fool... Read More

Duke Johnson Sees Drop In Usage

Houston Texans running back Duke Johnson ended up seeing his role reduced in Sunday's win over the Jacksonville Jaguars. Johnson had six carries for 31 yards and failed to bring in his only target. With so many receiving options for the Texans, Johnson's value as a receiver is reduced, which means he needs rushing touches... Read More

Carlos Hyde Is Houston's RB1

The Houston Texans' Week 2 win over the Jacksonville Jaguars made one thing clear: Carlos Hyde is the team's No. 1 running back. Hyde carried the ball 20 times for 90 yards, while Duke Johnson saw just six carries. Hyde likely won't carry the ball 20 times every week, but head coach Bill O'Brien made... Read More

Deshaun Watson Salvages Poor Showing With Rushing Touchdown

Houston Texans quarterback Deshaun Watson couldn't get anything going through the air in Sunday's win over the Jaguars, going 16-for-29 for 159 yards and no touchdowns. Watson ran the ball four times for just five yards, but his fantasy day was saved by a rushing touchdown. It wasn't a good day, but it was also... Read More

Dede Westbrook Struggles Against Texans

Jacksonville Jaguars wide receiver Dede Westbrook caught just one of his five targets in Sunday's loss to the Houston Texans, finishing with just three yards. It was the second disappointing game in a row for Westbrook, though this one makes Week 1's 30 yard performance look good. Westbrook and rookie quarterback Gardner Minshew just aren't... Read More

D.J. Chark Finds End Zone In Week 2

Jacksonville Jaguars wide receiver D.J. Chark found the end zone for the second week in a row, catching a late score in the fourth quarter that brought the Jaguars within a point.

Chris Conley Has Solid Week 2

Jacksonville Jaguars wide receiver Chris Conley caught four passes for a team-high 73 yards in Sunday's loss to the Houston Texans. Rookie quarterback Gardner Minshew has been looking Conley's way pretty consistently, and he's becoming a solid fantasy option in deeper leagues. With Marqise Lee and Keelan Cole seemingly out of the team's receiving rotation,... Read More

Leonard Fournette Grinds Out Solid Fantasy Day

Jacksonville Jaguars running back Leonard Fournette carried the ball 15 times for 47 yards in Jacksonville's Week 2 loss to the Houston Texans. He also caught four passes for 40 yards.

Gardner Minshew Leads Jaguars In Rushing

Jacksonville Jaguars quarterback Gardner Minshew threw for 213 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's loss to the Houston Texans. He was 22-for-33 passing and also added 56 rushing yards on six carries. It was another solid fantasy outing for Minshew, though it didn't really translate to the scoreboard for the rookie passer. Minshew looks like... Read More

Nick Foles Could Return Week 11

Jacksonville Jaguars quarterback Nick Foles (collarbone) is targeting a Week 11 return to the team when the team faces the Indianapolis Colts.

Patriots Want Antonio Brown Heavily Involved In Week 2

The New England Patriots will have their newest acquisition -- wide receiver Antonio Brown -- suit up and play on Sunday against the Dolphins despite facing sexual-assault allegations, and the plan appears to be for the team to get Brown involved early and often offensively, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Brown's talent and the... Read More
