Leonard Fournette Has Surprisingly Tough Matchup

You wouldn't usually associate Tampa Bay Buccaneers Defense and good together, but this season the Bucs have allowed the third-fewest PPR points to opposing running backs. That puts Jacksonville Jaguars running back Leonard Fournette in a tough spot on Sunday. His volume should allow him to finish with solid numbers and his newfound usage as a... Read More

Cole Beasley (WR, BUF) - Fantasy Football Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 14+ Team PPR Leagues OWNED IN: 29% of Leagues ANALYSIS: I'm tired of writing about Cole Beasley.

Mecole Hardman (WR, KC) - Fantasy Football Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 12+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 27% of Leagues ANALYSIS: Kansas City Chiefs wide receiver Tyreek Hill should play in Week 13 against the Raiders, though hamstring injuries are tricky. If Hill's out, Hardman should step into a bigger role and have a chance to produce. In the first five games of the season,... Read More

Jakobi Meyers (WR, NE) - Fantasy Football Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 14+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 1% of Leagues ANALYSIS: Sure, N'Keal Harry had the only touchdown on Sunday for the Patriots, but it was another little-owned receiver who had the most interesting day. Meyers was targeted nine times against Dallas, catching four of those for 74 yards on a day where... Read More

Allen Hurns (WR, MIA) - Fantasy Football Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 14+ Team PPR Leagues OWNED IN: 0% of Leagues ANALYSIS: It's time to talk about risk. Allen Hurns is a huge, huge risk this week, and the reward isn't sky high. A lot of people won't want to take that risk. But the Dolphins are throwing a lot, and Hurns still... Read More

D.J. Chark Catches Two-Point Conversion

Jacksonville Jaguars wide receiver D.J. Chark caught five passes for 38 yards and added a two-point conversion in Sunday's loss to the Tennessee Titans. He was targeted six times. Chark's been the top receiving option in Jacksonville for awhile, but he was fourth on the team in targets this week. Is it a sign of... Read More

Chris Conley Targeted Nine Times

Jacksonville Jaguars wide receiver Chris Conley caught four of his nine targets for 49 yards in Sunday's loss to the Tennessee Titans. He continues to see an increased workload for the Jags, though he also continues to not really take advantage of that increased workload. Conley's a decent fantasy option in deeper leagues, though his... Read More

Dede Westbrook Leads Jags In Receiving Yards

Jacksonville Jaguars wide receiver Dede Westbrook caught eight passes for a team-high 69 yards in Sunday's loss to the Tennessee Titans. Westbrook's 69 yards were his most since Week 7.

Leonard Fournette Has Huge Game Against Titans

The Jacksonville Jaguars struggled in Week 12 against the Titans, but running back Leonard Fournette wasn't part of that struggle. Fournette had 97 rushing yards and two touchdowns on 24 carries, while also adding nine catches for 62 yards. Fournette's usage had dropped over the past couple of games, so it was good for his...

Nick Foles Fails To Throw Touchdown

Jacksonville Jaguars quarterback Nick Foles got to throw the ball a lot on Sunday against the Tennessee Titans, but he didn't manage to find the end zone on those throws. Foles was 32-for-48 passing the football for 272 yards. He added 20 rushing yards on three carries. It wasn't a great outing from Foles, though... Read More

Saints Defense Unlikely To Have Marshon Lattimore

The New Orleans Saints Defense is likely to be without one of its best players again on Sunday, with Marshon Lattimore (hamstring)) not likely to play.

Rams Haven't Committed To Playing Brandin Cooks In Week 12

Los Angeles Rams wide receiver Brandin Cooks (concussion) has cleared the concussion protocol, but the team has reportedly not decided if Cooks will be available Monday against the Ravens, saying he is still "day to day." With that game taking place on Monday night, you shouldn't be trusting Cooks in your fantasy lineups unless you're... Read More

Patriots Will Be Patient With Mohamed Sanu's Ankle

New England Patriots wide receiver Mohamed Sanu (ankle) isn't expected to play on Sunday against the Dallas Cowboys, and ESPN's Jeff Darlington wonders if Sanu will even be available in Week 13.

Tom Brady Will Start Against Cowboys

While New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady (elbow) appeared on the team's injury report late in the week, his status for Week 12's meeting with the Dallas Cowboys was never really in doubt. Brady will play on Sunday, though an improved Cowboys Defense and some struggles of his own this year make it hard to... Read More

Washington Don't Expect To Have Chris Thompson

Washington Redskins running back Chris Thompson (toe) is not expected to be available for Week 12's meeting with the Lion.

Adrian Peterson Expected To Play Against Detroit

Washington Redskins running back Adrian Peterson (toe) is expected to play against the Lions in Week 12. Peterson saw his second-fewest rushing attempts of the year in Week 11 and played just 26 percent of the team's offensive snaps with Derrius Guice back, and there's no reason to expect that usage to change this week....

Tim Patrick Expected To Play

Denver Broncos wide receiver Tim Patrick (shoulder) is expected to suit up in Week 12 against the Buffalo Bills. Week 11 was Patrick's second game of the season, and he put up solid numbers, catching four of his eight targets for 77 yards. That uptick in usage bodes well for his ability to see the... Read More

Nelson Agholor Expected To Miss Week 12

Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver Nelson Agholor (knee) is not expected to play in Week 12 against the Seattle Seahawks. After being held out of practice during the week, Agholor missing this game isn't really a surprise. He's struggled all year, especially with drops, so his absence doesn't really impact much for fantasy owners, who were... Read More

Jordan Howard Unlikely To Play Against Seattle

Philadelphia Eagles running back Jordan Howard (shoulder) is unlikely to play against the Seahawks in Week 12. With Howard sidelined, expect to see a heavy dose of Miles Sanders in this one, who should dominate the backfield touches for the Eagles.

Deebo Samuel Expected To Suit Up

San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Deebo Samuel (shoulder) let Week 11's meeting with the Cardinals early, but not before catching eight passes for 134 yards. He's expected to play in Week 12 against the Packer. With how strong Samuel has come on after the past couple of games, he's worth a flex spot in most... Read More

George Kittle Expected To Play Against Packers

San Francisco 49ers tight end George Kittle (ankle/knee) is expected to play against the Packers in Week 12. Kittle was held out of San Francisco's past two games, but his return to the field instantly vaults him back into the upper echelons of the tight end position. Even if he's still a little banged up,... Read More

Dede Westbrook Is Low Upside Option Against Titans

Jacksonville Jaguars wide receiver Dede Westbrook has struggled to get much going in 2019. In between injury and the emergence of D.J. Chark, Westbrook hasn't been able to put up sustained strong numbers this season, and in his return to the field in Week 11 he caught four passes for just 32 yards. His current... Read More

Chris Conley Is Risk/Reward Option In Week 12

Jacksonville Jaguars wide receiver Chris Conley has seen an uptick in usage lately, receiving seven or eight targets in four straight games. But those targets have come with varying degrees of success, from 103 yards and a score against the Jets to just 32 yards against Houston. There are definitely reasons to start a guy... Read More

D.J. Chark's Upside Makes Him A Strong Start

Jacksonville Jaguars wide receiver D.J. Chark has surpassed the rest of his team's wide receivers in the pecking order, and the return of quarterback Nick Foles didn't change that last week. Chark was targeted 15 times, catching eight passes for 104 yards and a pair of touchdowns. The matchup and the potential game flow aren't... Read More

Leonard Fournette Is Solid Week 12 Option

Jacksonville Jaguars running back Leonard Fournette had 66 rushing yards on 15 carries and 26 receiving yards on six catches in Week 3 when the Jaguars faced the Titans.
