Bo Scarbrough A Risky Start Against Vikings

Detroit Lions running back Bo Scarbrough has taken control of the Lions backfield, but he may not get too many opportunities in Week 14 with the Minnesota Vikings on deck. This game could get out of hand very quickly, which would mean limited touches for Scarbrough as he is not involved in the passing game... Read More

Marvin Jones A Boom-Or-Bust WR3 In Week 14

Detroit Lions wide receiver Marvin Jones shouldn't have a hard time against a leaky Minnesota Vikings secondary in Week 14, but uncertainty remains with rookie quarterback David Blough starting for the Lions. Jones has hauled in 17 receptions for 206 yards and three touchdowns over the last four weeks, proving to be at least somewhat... Read More

Kenny Golladay A Fringe WR2 Against Vikings

Detroit Lions wide receiver Kenny Golladay was able to haul in 158 yards and a touchdown with rookie quarterback David Blough under center in Week 13, but a closer look into the game tells a different story. Most of Golladay's production, including his touchdown catch, came on one play in the first quarter. It was... Read More

David Blough Not A Recommended Week 14 Start

Detroit Lions rookie quarterback David Blough will get the start in Week 14 when the Lions travel to Minnesota to take on the Vikings. With Matthew Stafford (back) unlikely to return this season and Jeff Driskel (hamstring) placed on the injured reserve, it looks like it will be all Blough from here on out. Those... Read More

Jameis Winston A Solid Option In Week 14

Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Jameis Winston is coming off a very disappointing performance in Week 13, but that shouldn't hold fantasy owners back from going right back to him in Week 14 against the Indianapolis Colts. Winston was only able to pass for 268 yards with no scores last week, but he should have no... Read More

4 days ago


Peyton Barber A Risky Start Against Colts

Tampa Bay Buccaneers running back Peyton Barber rewarded fantasy owners who were brave enough to start him in Week 13, but a repeat of his two-touchdown performance, or even something close to it, is hard to envision heading into the first week of the fantasy playoffs. The Bucs backfield is a weekly guessing game with... Read More

Peyton Barber Scores Twice In Bucs Win

Tampa Bay Buccaneers running back Peyton Barber rushed 17 times for 44 yards and two touchdowns in the Bucs Week 13 win over the Jacksonville Jaguars. Barber and Ronald Jones II initially started out sharing the load, but Jones all but disappeared from the rotation after Barber's 15-yard touchdown in the first quarter. Barber's second... Read More

Ronald Jones II A Ghost In Week 13

Tampa Bay Buccaneers running back Ronald Jones II again fell victim to the Bucs seesaw backfield usage. Jones rushed just six times for eight yards in the Bucs Week 13 win over the Jacksonville Jaguars. After seemingly taking over the Bucs backfield over the last few weeks, this has to be extremely disappointing for fantasy... Read More

Jameis Winston Posts Dud In Week 13

Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Jameis Winston let fantasy owners down at the most critical juncture of the fantasy season, completing 21 of 33 passes for 268 yards and zero touchdowns in the Bucs Week 13 win over the Jacksonville Jaguars. This was the first time this season Winston did not record a touchdown pass in... Read More

Deshaun Watson Tosses Three Touchdown Passes In Week 13

Houston Texans quarterback Deshaun Watson completed 18 of 25 passes for 234 yards and three touchdowns in the Texans Week 13 win over the New England Patriots. Watson shined in prime time, adding a touchdown catch on a trick play in the fourth quarter to an already impressive performance. Watson spread the ball around all... Read More

DeAndre Hopkins Tosses Touchdown Pass In Week 13

Houston Texans wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins hauled in five of eight targets for 64 yards in the Texans Week 13 win against the New England Patriots. Hopkins was kept in check for most of the game by cornerback Stephon Gilmore, but he was able to salvage his fantasy day with a touchdown pass to quarterback Deshaun... Read More

D.J. Moore Stays Hot In Week 13

Carolina Panthers wide receiver D.J. Moore picked up right where he left off in Week 12, hauling in six of 12 targets for 75 yards and one touchdown in the Panthers Week 13 loss to the Washington Redskins. Moore has not seen less than nine targets in any of the six games since the Panthers... Read More

Curtis Samuel Scores In Week 13 Loss

Carolina Panthers wide receiver Curtis Samuel hauled in four of seven targets for 65 yards and one touchdown in the Panthers loss to the Washington Redskins in Week 13. Samuel would have easily had another score in the first quarter, but quarterback Kyle Allen's pass ended up being badly underthrown, resulting in a 33-yard gain. Sound... Read More

Peyton Barber Not A Recommended Week 13 Start

Tampa Bay Buccaneers running back Peyton Barber has been given an extremely inconsistent workload since the Bucs bye. He has carried the ball 10 times or more in three games, and four times or less in two games. Barber doesn't have the most daunting matchup in Week 13 with the Jacksonville Jaguars on deck, but...

Jameis Winston A Mid-Range QB1 Against Jags

Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Jameis Winston's play has been volatile for the Bucs this season, but he has done more than enough for fantasy owners. Winston is coming off an excellent performance against the Falcons where he completed 18-of-26 passes for 313 yards, three touchdowns, and two interceptions. The interceptions are almost a given for... Read More

Ronald Jones II An RB3 In Week 13

Tampa Bay Buccaneers running back Ronald Jones II is the man to own at the moment in the Bucs backfield. Jones has seen at least 11 carries in all but one game since the bye, which at least somewhat solidifies him as the top option. He will have a great opportunity this week, as the... Read More

David Blough Posts Solid Effort In Week 13 Loss

Detroit Lions rookie quarterback David Blough impressed in his first-ever game action, completing 22 of 38 passes for 280 yards, two touchdowns and an interception in the Lions Thanksgiving Day loss to the Bears. Blough shocked everyone with a 75-yard bomb to wide receiver Kenny Golladay on the opening drive. He then followed it up... Read More

Bo Scarbrough Keeps On Trucking

Detroit Lions running back Bo Scarbrough rushed 21 times for 83 yards in the Lions Week 13 loss to the Bears. Scarbrough did post a 22-yard run on the day, which was technically his longest, but it was called back due to an illegal block by Kenny Golladay. Scarborough has taken control of the Lions...

Marvin Jones Stays Hot In Week 13

Detroit Lions wide receiver Marvin Jones hauled in three of six targets for 40 yards and a touchdown in the Lions Week 13 loss to the Chicago Bears. Jones has proven to be quarterback-proof this season. The veteran wide receiver hasn't skipped a beat since Matthew Stafford (back) went down, even with third-string rookie quarterback... Read More

Kenny Golladay Gets Back On Track Against Bears

Detroit Lions wide receiver Kenny Golladay hauled in four receptions for 158 yards and a touchdown against the Chicago Bears on Thanksgiving Day. Golladay started the game off with a bang, catching a 75-yard touchdown on the opening drive. Fantasy owners have to be pleased with this performance considering rookie quarterback David Blough was forced... Read More

Bo Scarbrough Could Be Very Busy In Week 13

Detroit Lions running back Bo Scarbrough has performed very well over the last two weeks, rushing for 153 yards and one touchdown to take control of the Lions backfield. That's likely not going to change this week with backup quarterback Jeff Driskel (hamstring) unable to start and rookie David Blough getting the call. The Lions... Read More

Marvin Jones Has Tough Week 13 Matchup

Detroit Lions wide receiver Marvin Jones has been backup quarterback Jeff Driskel's favorite target since he was thrown into the fire in Week 10, but the veteran wide receiver will have a new signal-caller in Week 13 with Driskel (hamstring) unable to start. Jones had been on a solid run lately, but with a tough... Read More

Kenny Golladay Looking To Get Back On Track

Detroit Lions wide receiver Kenny Golladay is averaging just 51 yards per game with backup quarterback Jeff Driskel under center, having caught just eight balls for 152 yards and one touchdown over three games. Not exactly the type of production fantasy owners were hoping for, especially heading into the fantasy playoffs. Now things have taken... Read More

T.J. Hockenson Downgraded To Questionable Against Redskins

Detroit Lions rookie tight end T.J. Hockenson (shoulder) has been downgraded to questionable for Sunday's game against the Washington Redskins. Fantasy owners relying on Hockenson in Week 12 are going to want to monitor the Lions pregame warmups, as being added to the injury report this late in the week doesn't happen very often and is...

Bo Scarbrough Looking To Take Control Of Lions Backfield

Detroit Lions running back Bo Scarbrough looked solid in Week 11, posting 55 yards on 14 attempts and one touchdown just one day after being promoted from the practice squad. Week 12 presents an excellent opportunity for Scarbrough to take control of a Lions backfield that has been in disarray since Kerryon Johnson (knee) was... Read More

Jeff Driskel A Solid Option In Week 12

Detroit Lions backup quarterback Jeff Driskel has impressed in two starts since taking over for the injured Matthew Stafford (back). Driskel has passed for 478 yards, three touchdowns, and one interception in two games against some of the top defenses in the NFL. The second-year signal-caller has also shown very impressive mobility, adding 88 rushing... Read More

Peyton Barber Not A Recommended Week 12 Start

Tampa Bay Buccaneers running back Peyton Barber is trending towards being cemented as the clear-cut No. 2 option in the Bucs backfield. Barber did not get a touch in Week 11, and while he did find the end zone on one of his two targets on the day, it looks like Ronald Jones II is... Read More

Ronald Jones II On RB3/4 Borderline For Week 12 Matchup

Tampa Bay Buccaneers running back Ronald Jones II looks to be the back to own on the Bucs. Jones was the victim of a negative game script in Week 10, seeing just 6 touches throughout the afternoon, but he's also been targeted 12 times over the last two games and seems to have finally separated...

T.J. Hockenson Hoping To Get Going In Week 12

Detroit Lions rookie tight end T.J. Hockenson has surpassed the 32-yard receiving mark just once since his outlier Week 1 performance, while also putting up three single-digit receiving yard performances in that time. His floor is quite an ugly one with or without Matthew Stafford (back) in the lineup, making him a very tough sell... Read More

Marvin Jones Looks To Keep Rolling

Detroit Lions wide receiver Marvin Jones has been on a tear since Week 7. The veteran wideout has accumulated 361 yards and seven scores over the last five games and will look to stay hot against the Washington Redskins on in Week 12. Jones has not been affected by the loss of starting quarterback Matthew... Read More
