Leonard Fournette Is RB2 Option In Week 16

Jacksonville Jaguars running back Leonard Fournette hasn't surpassed 50 rushing yards over the last three games that Jacksonville has played, but his increased work in the passing game gives him solid upside in Week 16 against a Falcons Defense that's near the middle of the pack in fantasy points allowed to opposing running backs. Fournette... Read More

Gardner Minshew Has Favorable Matchup

Jacksonville Jaguars rookie quarterback Gardner Minshew has been solid since retaking the starting job for the Jags, throwing three touchdowns and no interceptions in the last two games. He gets a solid matchup on Sunday against a Falcons squad that's allowed the eighth-most fantasy points per game to opposing quarterbacks this season. That doesn't mean... Read More

Darren Fells Remains Low-Floor Option

Houston Texans tight end Darren Fells's fantasy outlook for Week 16 remains where it's been for weeks: if he finds the end zone, he'll have a productive day, but otherwise he has a rock-bottom floor. Fells is coming off a one-catch, two-yard game against the Titans, which came on the heels of a two-catch, two-yard... Read More

Kenny Stills Is Risky Week 16 Option

Houston Texans wide receiver Kenny Stills caught two touchdowns last week against the Tennessee Titans, but those came on just three total catches for 35 yards. It was the fourth game in a row where Stills received four or fewer targets, and while he has a juicy matchup in Week 16 against the Buccaneers, who've... Read More

Will Fuller Has Upside In Week 16

Houston Texans wide receiver Will Fuller (hamstring) has been dealing with some inconsistency in the second half of the season, but looked to be back on track against the Titans last week, catching five of his seven targets for 61 yards. This week, he gets a Buccaneers Defense that's allowing more fantasy points to opposing... Read More

Duke Johnson Is Risky Option In Week 16

Houston Texans running back Duke Johnson has essentially been rendered a non-factor in the run game down the stretch, with just three carries over Houston's last two games. He had been gaining steam as a receiving threat, but against the Titans on Sunday he was targeted just three times, catching two passes for 19 yards.... Read More

Carlos Hyde Is In Tough Spot Against Bucs

Houston Texans running back Carlos Hyde is in the midst of his first 1,000-yard season, but Saturday's matchup against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers might be a good time to fade Hyde in your fantasy rankings. Tampa Bay has allowed fewer rushing yards to opposing running backs this year than any other team has, with backs... Read More

Deshaun Watson Has Great Week 16 Matchup

Houston Texans quarterback Deshaun Watson faces a Tampa Bay Buccaneers Defense on Saturday that's allowing the seventh-most fantasy points this season to opposing passers, and while the Bucs pass defense has improved some as the season's gone along, Watson should still be considered a QB1 for this matchup. It's been awhile since Watson's had a... Read More

The Tape Tells All - Breshad Perriman Fantasy Outlook

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. Just kidding.

Wide Receiver Waiver Wire Pickups - Week 16

This is it, y'all. Week 16. The fantasy championships, unless you play a Week 17 final, which...stop it, but also we'll talk next week about some waiver help for y'all. Here are some wide receivers who are owned in less than 30 percent of leagues, and since this week is for all the marbles, there's... Read More

The Fantasy Football Guide to College Bowl Season

It's time for the best -- or, if you think 300-something games is too many, the worst -- part of the football season: Bowl games. This year, we've got 40 bowl games in total.

Dede Westbrook Should See Expanded Role

Jacksonville Jaguars wide receiver Dede Westbrook should be the team's top weapon on Sunday against the Oakland Raiders with fellow receiver D.J. Chark already ruled out. Westbrook entered the year as the team's number one target, but Chark emerged as a key deep threat and Westbrook dealt with injuries. Now, though, the third-year receiver has... Read More

Leonard Fournette Still Solid Fantasy Option

Despite struggling in Week 14 against the Chargers, Jacksonville Jaguars running back Leonard Fournette should still be considered a solid RB2 in Week 15 against the Oakland Raiders. Fournette dominates the backfield touches on this Jaguars team and has seen his role as a pass-catcher increase over the past three games. The Raiders Defense hasn't... Read More

Gardner Minshew Is Intriguing Week 15 Option

Jacksonville Jaguars quarterback Gardner Minshew threw for just 162 yards in his return to the starting role last week, but he should be in line to surpass that when Jacksonville faces the Oakland Raiders in Week 15. Oakland allows the second-most fantasy points per game to opposing passers, and the last time Minshew started against... Read More

Dolphins Give DeVante Parker Four Year Extension

Miami Dolphins wide receiver Devante Parker has signed a four-year extension with the team that includes the next two years guaranteed, locking the breakout receiver into a deal with a rebuilding Miami team. This is a good spot for Parker, who's been become a reliable fantasy option for the Dolphins this season, and while there's... Read More

Darren Fells Is Touchdown Dependent Option In Week 15

Houston Texans tight end Darren Fells's fantasy value is tied to his ability to find the end zone. While he's set the Texans team record for touchdowns by a tight end, he's also vanished in too many games for fantasy owners to feel comfortable deploying him in the fantasy playoffs. His best PPR score in... Read More

Kenny Stills Has Limited Upside In Week 15

Houston Texans wide receiver Kenny Stills was expected to play a larger role in Week 14 with Will Fuller (hamstring) sidelined, but he finished with just two catches for eight yards. Fuller could be back this week, which would render Stills as a low-upside fantasy option who isn't startable in most leagues, but even if... Read More

DeAndre Hopkins Remains Top-End Fantasy Option

While he got off to a slower than usual start to the year, Houston Texans wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins is still in the top-10 in fantasy scoring at his position this season and should be considered a must-start WR1 going into Sunday's meeting with the Tennessee Titans. In 12 career games against Tennessee, Hopkins is... Read More

Duke Johnson Has PPR Flex Appeal

Houston Texans running back Duke Johnson wasn't a huge factor in the run game last week, but he could see increased usage in Week 15 against the Tennessee Titans. The Titans allow the sixth-most receiving yards to opposing running backs, so there's a chance that we see him on the field at a rate closer... Read More

Carlos Hyde Could Take Back Seat

Houston Texans running back Carlos Hyde has had double-digit carries in all but one game this year and is coming off a 73-yard effort against the Broncos, but Sunday's meeting with the Titans could look a little different. The Titans have been among the league's worst teams at preventing receiving yards to opposing backs, a... Read More

Deshaun Watson Set To Bounce Back In Week 15

Houston Texans quarterback Deshaun Watson had his first multi-interception game since Week 7 in last week's loss to the Denver Broncos, but he should be positioned to rebound in Week 15 against the Tennessee Titans. The Titans are tied for the 10th-most interceptions in the league, but they're right in the middle of the pack... Read More

Chris Conley Held To One Reception

Jacksonville Jaguars wide receiver Chris Conley had seen an uptick in usage lately, but that usage was virtually non-existent in Sunday's loss to the Chargers. Conley caught just one pass for seven yards and was targeted three times. Maybe the change in quarterback was bad for Conley's fantasy value, or maybe it was just a... Read More

Dede Westbrook Doesn't Do Much Against Chargers

Jacksonville Jaguars wide receiver Dede Westbrook caught six passes for 25 yards in Sunday's loss to the Los Angeles Chargers. With Gardner Minshew back under center, it was back to being one of those "Westbrook only gets targeted close to the line of scrimmage" days that makes him unplayable in standard scoring leagues. That's likely... Read More

Nick O'Leary Catches First Touchdown Of 2019

Jacksonville Jaguars tight end Nick O'Leary caught his first touchdown since joining the Jags in Sunday's loss to the Los Angeles Chargers. On the day, O'Leary caught four passes for 30 yards and the score. He was targeted five times. O'Leary's been targeted at least four times in each of his games with his new... Read More

D.J. Chark Is Bright Spot In Week 14

Jacksonville Jaguars wide receiver D.J. Chark made the most of a bad situation in Sunday's blowout loss to the Chargers, catching a team-high nine passes for 75 yards. He was targeted 10 times. With Gardner Minshew back in the starting lineup, Chark is back to being the top receiving option for the Jags. He's the... Read More

Running Back ADP Winners and Losers: 2019 Season Review

I've always believed that it is easier to lose a fantasy championship than to win it on draft day.
