This article is about two outfielders with similar ADP who are completely different players in terms of their fantasy production as well as their skill set. Although there is an abundance of riches at the outfield position every year, it is still very important to nail your picks in the middle-to-late rounds as that’s where... Read More

BALLER MOVE: Draft target ~pick 200 CURRENT ADP: ~215 overall ANALYSIS: There is a multitude of reasons to like what Lourdes Gurriel has to offer at his currently very low draft price. The 25-year-old shortstop from Cuba is entering just his second MLB season after spending 2017 and about half of 2018 accelerating through Toronto’s... Read More

There are a multitude of reasons to like what Lourdes Gurriel has to offer at his currently very low draft price. The 25-year-old shortstop from Cuba is entering just his second MLB season after spending 2017 and about half of 2018 accelerating through Toronto’s minor league system. He definitely impressed in his brief taste of... Read More

Minnesota Vikings wide receiver Stefon Diggs caught just 2-of-6 targets for 10 yards, but saved his fantasy day with an eight-yard touchdown catch to open the Vikings scoring in the first half. Diggs was shadowed all game by All-Pro cornerback Darius Slay, so the Vikings simply targeted other players in the passing game and utilized... Read More

Minnesota Vikings wide receiver Adam Thielen had a solid day, snagging 5-of-6 targets for 80 yards in the Week 16 win over the Detroit Lions. Thielen benefited from shutdown-cornerback Darius Slay shadowing Stefon Diggs all afternoon, but it was tight end Kyle Rudolph who got the majority of the targets and receiving work in the...

Kyle Rudolph Shows Up In Big Way

Minnesota Vikings tight end Kyle Rudolph had himself a career-best type of performance on Sunday, hauling in 9-of-9 targets for 122 yards and two touchdowns in a 27-9 win over the Detroit Lions. He set personal season-highs in catches, receiving yards, and touchdowns in the game. His first touchdown came on a momentum-swinging play, leaping... Read More

Minnesota Vikings running back Dalvin Cook had another productive outing on Sunday, rushing 16 times for 73 yards and adding three catches on three targets for 35 receiving yards in the 27-9 win over the Detroit Lions. As with the entire offense, Cook started this game slowly as the Lions kicked field goals and the... Read More

Kirk Cousins Shreds Lions

Minnesota Vikings quarterback Kirk Cousins completed 21-of-28 passes for 253 yards and three touchdowns against the Detroit Lions in Week 16. The Vikings struggled to move the ball until exploding for 14 points with just minutes left in the first half, thanks in part to a end-of-half successful Hail Mary to tight end Kyle Rudolph.... Read More

Minnesota Vikings tight end Kyle Rudolph didn't do much of anything on Sunday afternoon against the New England Patriots, hauling in all three of his targets for 38 yards. He did have a spectacular catch over Patrick Chung - unfortunately style points don't count for anything in fantasy football. Aside from his seven catches for... Read More

Minnesota Vikings wide receiver Adam Thielen hauled in just five of 10 targets for 28 yards in Week 13 against the New England Patriots, though he did save his fantasy day with a five-yard touchdown at the end of the first half. He, along with the Vikings offense as a whole, just seemed out-of-sync all... Read More

Minnesota Vikings wide receiver Stefon Diggs caught each of his five targets for 49 yards in Week 13's loss to the New England Patriots. Though he caught all of his targets, quarterback Kirk Cousins just couldn't look his way often due to great coverage by top-rated defensive back Stephon Gilmore. Though Diggs was a game-time... Read More

Minnesota Vikings running back Latavius Murray has seen his role steadily decrease as Dalvin Cook has gotten healthier, and this week represented another step back for him in the loss to the Patriots. He rushed four times for just 11 yards and reeled in 2-of-3 targets for three yards. Cook is the more talented and... Read More

Minnesota Vikings running back Dalvin Cook rushed for 84 yards on nine carries (9.3 yards per carry) in Week 13's loss to the New England Patriots. He also caught 8-of-10 targets for 22 yards, with the eight catches representing a new career-high for the second-year back. Cook showed off his quick burst and playmaking ability... Read More

Minnesota Vikings quarterback Kirk Cousins had a rough outing on Sunday afternoon against the Patriots, completing 32 of 44 passes for 201 yards and one touchdown with two interceptions. Though he was coming off of a great performance against the Packers in Week 12, Cousins failed to capitalize in a favorable matchup as he averaged... Read More

C.J Uzomah could see increased targets with A.J. Green sidelined against the Saints, but his recent track record and the Saints ability to shut down opposing tight end's give some reason for concern. Uzomah has two or fewer catches in three of the four games that he's been the primary tight end, and he has... Read More

John Ross Is A Viable Dart-Throw

John Ross may be hard to trust as he has missed three of his last four games due to injury, but he has a really nice matchup on tap and not all of Green's 9.5 targets/game will be heading Tyler Boyd's way. New Orleans ranks dead last in yards per target to opposing wide receivers... Read More

With A.J. Green sidelined, emerging stud Tyler Boyd will take over as the lead receiver in the Bengals offense. When Green left the game back in Week 3, Boyd exploded for six catches, 132 yards, and a touchdown. Green's 9.5 targets are up for grabs, and Dalton will surely be looking to Boyd as the... Read More

Joe Mixon is in the small group of running backs with a guaranteed workload, as evidenced by his 20.7 touches per game (fifth among RB's). However, his recent lack of receiving usage, the return of Giovani Bernard, and a really tough matchup against the Saints all serve to slightly downgrade his fantasy outlook this week.... Read More

Though the matchup against the New Orleans Saints is a good one, Dalton can't be trusted as anything more than a QB2 in Week 10. A.J. Green will miss the contest, and Dalton has been a top-12 quarterback in just 4-of-11 games without his top weapon and holds a 11/10 touchdown-to-interception ratio in those games... Read More

It's been said before and I'll say it again - rookie running backs can play a very significant role when it comes to fantasy fortunes. Kareem Hunt (2017) and Ezekiel Elliot (2016) are the recent examples, while the Saquon Barkley breakout of 2018 has taken absolutely no one by surprise. Prior to this season, I... Read More

Minnesota Vikings wide receiver Laquon Treadwell had yet another nondescript fantasy day on Sunday in the Minnesota Vikings 23-21 road win over the Philadelphia Eagles. Treadwell hauled in 3-of-4 targets for just 21 yards while seeing 30-of-62 (48%) offensive snaps. Fellow receivers Adam Thielen and Stefon Diggs commanded 10 and 11 targets, respectively, and will... Read More

Detroit Tigers second baseman Dawel Lugo made his first career MLB home run count. Pinch-hitting for Harold Castro in the top of the eighth inning, Lugo faced off against bullpen phenom Josh Hader with one man on base, no outs, and down by two runs. In a 3-2 count against one of the premier arms... Read More

Detroit Tigers starting pitcher Jordan Zimmermann has had a bit of an issue with the long ball this year (1.9 HR/9), and that problem cropped up again in a 5-4 loss to the Milwaukee Brewers on Saturday. Zimmermann went four innings, gave up four runs on eight hits, and struck out four while walking two... Read More

Kirk Cousins Shines Despite Loss

Minnesota Vikings quarterback Kirk Cousins completed 36-of-50 passing attempts for 422 yards and three touchdowns on Thursday night, tacking on 28 rushing yards on four attempts. In a night where the Vikings played from behind all game and eventually fell to the Los Angeles Rams 38-31, Cousins actually led the team in rushing yards. He... Read More

Minnesota Vikings running back Latavius Murray ran for just two yards on two carries in the Vikings loss to the Los Angeles Rams on Thursday night. Though starting running back Dalvin Cook was on a "pitch count" and the Vikings were playing from behind all game, Murray only saw two targets in the passing game... Read More

Minnesota Vikings wide receiver Aldrick Robinson caught his only two targets of the night from Kirk Cousins, turning them into 33 receiving yards and two touchdowns in the 38-31 Vikings loss. Robinson just signed with the team on September 17, but he is already showing nice chemistry with his former quarterback on the Redskins. However,... Read More

Detroit Tigers closer Shane Greene notched his 32nd save of the year on Tuesday night, shutting the door on the Minnesota Twins as part of a comeback 4-2 Tigers win. He walked one and struck out one in a scoreless bottom of the ninth inning. Greene is now 32-for-38 in save opportunities in 2018 to... Read More

BALLER MOVE: Add in 12+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 24% of leagues ANALYSIS: Minnesota Twins relief pitcher Trevor Hildenberger has not had a great season, there's really no other way of spinning it. He's sitting at a 4.31 ERA, 1.27 WHIP, 59/22 strikeout-to-walk ratio, and has allowed an eye-popping 11 homers on the year. His... Read More

Detroit Tigers closer Shane Greene had a really tough time on Monday, serving up two home runs en route to getting walked off by the Chicago White Sox in a 4-2 loss. Greene gave up a solo homer to Daniel Palka, a single to Wellington Castillo, and then the walk-off home run by Matt Davidson.... Read More

Niko Goodrum Swats 16th Homer

Detroit Tigers first baseman Niko Goodrum went 1-for-4 with a home run in Monday's loss to the Chicago White Sox. His solo blast came in the 7th inning off White Sox starter Reynaldo Lopez. It was his 16th home run and 45th RBI of the year. His season slash line sits at .234/.306/.429, chipping in... Read More
