Houston Texans wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins caught six of his 10 targets for 86 yards in Sunday's loss to the New York Giants. While it wasn't Hopkins's best outing, it was still a respectable game for Houston's star receiver. With wide receiver Will Fuller receiving 11 targets, it looks like Hopkins's stranglehold on the team's... Read More

For much of Sunday's loss to the Giants, Houston Texans wide receiver Will Fuller looked poised for a disappointing finish, but three receptions in the fourth quarter -- including a six-yard touchdown catch -- helped Fuller finish with a five-catch, 101-yard day. Fuller was targeted a team-high 11 times and was on the field for... Read More

The Houston Texans running game struggled to get going in Sunday's loss to the New York Giants, with running back Lamar Miller finishing with 10 rushing yards on 10 carries. Miller managed to salvage his day with a late touchdown reception, part of a five-catch, 41-yard day through the air for the back. He also... Read More

Houston Texans quarterback Deshaun Watson continues to struggle relative to his level of performance during his rookie season, but he salvaged a good fantasy performance in Sunday's loss to the Giants. Watson finished 24-for-40 passing the ball with 385 yards, two touchdowns, and an interception. He added 36 rushing yards as well. The Texans visit... Read More

Jacksonville Jaguars wide receiver Keelan Cole had one of his best career outings in Week 2 against the Patriots, but he wasn't able to build on that in Jacksonville's Week 3 loss to the Titans. Cole was targeted nine times, hauling in five of those passes for 40 yards. It was part of a rough... Read More

Jacksonville Jaguars running back T.J. Yeldon was one of the only bright spots for fantasy owners in the Jaguars Week 3 loss to the Titans. Yeldon carried the ball seven times for 44 yards while also leading the team in receptions and receiving yards, catching six passes for 46 yards. Yeldon's fantasy value is wrapped... Read More

Jacksonville Jaguars quarterback Blake Bortles was relatively ineffective in Jacksonville's 9-6 loss to the Tennessee Titans on Sunday, finishing with 155 passing yards on 21-for-34 passing. He added 27 rushing yards on five carries. It was a rough day for the Jaguars offensively, who play the Jets next Sunday. Bortles should have an easier time... Read More

Jacksonville Jaguars running back Leonard Fournette (hamstring) is not expected to play in Sunday's meeting with the Tennessee Titans. The team is being careful with their star running back and will once again turn to the combination of T.J. Yeldon and Corey Grant to man the position. Yeldon could have some success against the Titans... Read More

The Atlanta Hawks drafted a pair of guards in this year's NBA Draft, headlined by former Oklahoma star Trae Young. While Young will get most of the attention and the early playing time, don't forget about Maryland's Kevin Huerter, a 41.7 percent shooter from three in his final college season who showed good rebounding ability... Read More

While the Spurs drafted guard Lonnie Walker this year to presumably pair him with point guard Dejounte Murray as the team's backcourt of the future, things often change in the NBA, and the trade that brought guard DeMar DeRozan to the Spurs has thrown a wrench into Walker's outlook for his rookie season. An athletic... Read More

While there's a lot to like about Los Angeles Clippers rookie guard Shai Gilgeous-Alexander, his role on this year's Clippers team remains a question mark entering the season. In his one season at Kentucky, Gilgeous-Alexander looked NBA-ready as a shooter and passer, but he'll open the season third on the depth chart for Los Angeles... Read More

The Orlando Magic's obsession with size and wingspan led them to take Texas center Mohamed Bamba in the first round of this year's NBA Draft. Bamba was a shot-blocking machine for the Longhorns last season, recording 111 blocks in 30 games. That's a skill that should translate to the NBA game. Bamba also attempted 51... Read More

Through two weeks of the NFL season, my hit rate on projecting non-quarterback busts has been pretty strong, but when it comes to predicting which quarterbacks would struggles...man, it's been tough. Ryan Fitzpatrick in Week 2 and Patrick Mahomes in Week 1... Still, it's Week 3, and we're starting to get some better data to... Read More

The thing about writing a "bold predictions" article is that you're essentially going 20 percent on data and 80 percent on gut instincts, so when I wrote a few weeks ago that Russell Wilson would finish outside of the top 10 at the quarterback position I definitely felt like there was a chance of it...

Hey! Welcome back to "Tape Don't Lie," the weekly column where I look at the film and the analytics of a surprising performer from the previous week and try to come to conclusions about his value moving forward! Last week I looked at Broncos running back Phillip Lindsay, who in Week 2 became the first... Read More

Jacksonville Jaguars tight end Austin Seferian-Jenkins caught a touchdown in Week 2, but with just 48 receiving yards through two games, he's better left out of fantasy lineups. This week, Seferian-Jenkins gets a matchup with the Tennessee Titans, who have allowed just four catches for 51 yards to tight ends during the 2018 season. Tennessee... Read More

Jacksonville Jaguars wide receiver Donte Moncrief actually leads the team in targets through two games despite struggling to turn those opportunities into production. Moncrief has just 48 receiving yards on the season, but he managed to find the end zone in Week 2 and his target share makes him an intriguing flex option in deep,... Read More

Jacksonville Jaguars wide receiver Dede Westbrook may be a bit of a risky play against the Titans in Week 3 after finishing in a three-way tie for fourth on the team in targets in Week 2, but a juicy matchup against Tennessee's shaky passing defense gives Westbrook upside, especially in deeper leagues where his chances... Read More

Jacksonville Jaguars wide receiver Keelan Cole is coming off one of the best games of his career, catching seven passes for 116 yards and a touchdown in a win over New England. He'll look to keep that rolling against one of the worst fantasy defenses against the wide receiver position in Week 3. The Tennessee... Read More

Jacksonville Jaguars quarterback Blake Bortles struggled some in his team's Week 1 victory over the Giants, but in Week 2 Bortles found his stride, passing for 377 yards, four touchdowns, and an interception. This week, he gets a home matchup against the Titans, who allowed 310 passing yards and 44 rushing yards to Texans quarterback... Read More

Houston Texans wide receiver Will Fuller returned from a hamstring injury in Week 2 and put up a strong outing, finishing with eight catches for 113 yards and a touchdown. He should find life a little tougher against the New York Giants in Week 3, though, as their defense has yet to allow a wide... Read More

Houston Texans wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins has a permanent place in fantasy lineups at this point, even in a potentially difficult matchup against the New York Giants. While the Giants have allowed just 191 yards and no scores to the entire wide receiver position through two weeks, Hopkins showed in 2017 that he's a matchup-proof... Read More

Houston Texans running back Lamar Miller has been kept out of the end zone so far in 2018, but he's also averaging his highest yards per carry since coming to Houston heading into a favorable matchup with the New York Giants. This could be the week that Miller breaks through. His 83 yards per game... Read More

Houston Texans quarterback Deshaun Watson hasn't lit the world on fire in his first two starts of the 2018 NFL season, tossing three touchdowns and a pair of interceptions while seeing his yards per attempt drop by 0.9 from his rookie year. He'll have a tough test on Sunday when Houston plays the Giants, who... Read More

Houston Texans wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins had already been limited in practice all week while dealing with thumb and ankle issues, but Thursday's injury report added a new ailment for Houston's star wideout, who was listed as having a hamstring injury as well. With the new injury designation coming so late in the week, Hopkins's... Read More

Over the next couple of weeks, I'll be bringing you division-by-division analysis of the upcoming NBA season and providing you with some fantasy nuggets for each NBA... Read More

Jacksonville Jaguars wide receiver Donte Moncrief finished Week 1 with just one catch on five targets, but quarterback Blake Bortles looked his way more often in the team's Week 2 victory over the New England Patriots. Moncrief caught four of his team-high nine targets, finishing with 34 yards and a touchdown. That Moncrief has now... Read More

Jacksonville Jaguars tight end Austin Seferian-Jenkins caught three passes for 23 yards and a touchdown in his team's Week 2 win over New England. Seferian-Jenkins, who also had three catches in Week 1, doesn't appear to a major threat in Jacksonville's passing game from a yardage perspective, but he does give the team a big... Read More

Jacksonville Jaguars wide receiver Dede Westbrook caught four passes for 83 yards and a touchdown in Jacksonville's Week 2 victory over the New England Patriots. Westbrook's 61-yard touchdown in the fourth quarter helped the Jaguars ice the game and showed off his ability to gain yards after the catch. The bad news from this outing?... Read More

Jacksonville Jaguars wide receiver Keelan Cole made plenty of highlight reels after a one-handed catch against the Patriots, but that wasn't the only good moment from the second-year receiver. Cole caught seven passes for 116 yards and a touchdown in the victory, establishing himself as Jacksonville's most dangerous receiver. He'll look to deliver similar results... Read More
