BALLER MOVE: Add in 12+ team PPR leagues OWNED IN: 5% of leagues ANALYSIS: Believe it or not, Danny Amendola was tied for third in the NFL among receivers in Week 1 with 13 targets.

Chris Thompson (RB, WAS) - Week 2 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 14+ Team PPR Leagues OWNED IN: 12% of Leagues ANALYSIS: A knee injury is going to cost Derrius Guice some time, and while that injury was thankfully to the non-ACL tear knee, Washington is still likely going to be cautious with the second-year back. Behind him on the depth chart, Washington... Read More

D.J. Chark (WR, JAC) - Week 2 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 14+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 2% of Leagues ANALYSIS: As a rookie, Jaguars wide receiver D.J. Chark had 14 catches for 174 yards and no touchdowns.

Terry McLaurin (WR, WAS) - Week 2 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 14+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 2% of Leagues ANALYSIS: Virtually every NFL team has a wide receiver who can be considered fantasy relevant, but things in Washington were such a mess entering this season that no one seemed to have any idea which receiver -- if any -- would be the...

BALLER MOVE: Add in All leagues OWNED IN: 13% of leagues ANALYSIS: Giovani Bernard outcarried Joe Mixon (ankle) seven to six in Week 1 against the Seahawks after the latter left with an injury.

Ronald Jones II (RB, TB) - Week 2 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in All leagues OWNED IN: 28% of leagues ANALYSIS: No rookie had a worse year in 2018 than Ronald Jones II. The USC product played in just nine games and ran 23 times for 44 yards (1.9 yards per tote) and only one touchdown. He worked hard in the offseason and was... Read More

5 days ago

Gardner Minshew (QB, JAC) - Week 2 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 2-QB Leagues OWNED IN: 0% of Leagues ANALYSIS: Week 1 didn't go well for the Jacksonville Jaguars, who saw their starting quarterback Nick Foles leave the game early with a broken collarbone and land on the injured reserve. That'll put the most important position in football in the hands of sixth-round... Read More

5 days ago

Malcolm Brown (RB, LAR) - Week 2 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in All leagues OWNED IN: 10% of leagues ANALYSIS: Much was made this offseason about the Rams' plan to limit Todd Gurley's workload in order to keep him healthy for the entire season. We finally got to see that plan in action in Week 1 against the Panthers. But it was veteran... Read More

5 days ago

Marquise Brown (WR, BAL) - Week 2 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in All leagues OWNED IN: 30% of leagues ANALYSIS: Very few expected much from Marquise Brown in his regular season NFL debut in a run-first offense, especially since he had missed some practices and preseason games while recovering from a Lisfranc foot injury. Not only did he look fully healthy, but Brown... Read More

Mecole Hardman (WR, KC) - Week 2 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in All Leagues OWNED IN: 15% of Leagues ANALYSIS: While there's still not much clarity on the Tyreek Hill injury situation, we do know that Hill is set to miss at least some time, leaving the Kansas City Chiefs fairly light at the wide receiver position. There's Sammy Watkins, who was the... Read More

Alexander Mattison (RB, MIN) - Week 2 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 14-Team Leagues OWNED IN: 21% of Leagues ANALYSIS: The Minnesota Vikings running game was out in full force in Week 1 and rookie running back Alexander Mattison played a big part in it.

Devante Parker (WR, MIA) - Week 2 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 14-Team Leagues OWNED IN: 14% of Leagues ANALYSIS: Miami Dolphins wide receiver Devante Parker has been the definition of inconsistency throughout the first four years of his NFL career. There've been flashes of brilliance followed by weeks of complete irrelevance. But is there reason to believe this year could be different?... Read More

John Ross (WR, CIN) - Week 2 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 12+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 6% of Leagues ANALYSIS: John Ross was largely overlooked as a fantasy asset this offseason, despite Cincinnati's thin wide receiver depth chart and a large potential workload with A.J. Green on the sidelines. Since being selected ninth overall in the 2017 NFL Draft, Ross has been... Read More

6 days ago

Matthew Stafford (QB, DET) - Week 2 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 14-Team Leagues OWNED IN: 26% of Leagues ANALYSIS: Last week's game against the Cardinals could be a predictor of future performance for Matthew Stafford. Stafford has thrown for over 4,200 yards in every season since 2011, except last season's downtrodden performance where he finished with 3,777 yards and 21 touchdowns. This season,... Read More

6 days ago

Mike Davis (RB, CHI) - Week 2 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 14-Team PPR Leagues OWNED IN: 15% of Leagues ANALYSIS: While all the Bears talk of the offseason was about rookie David Montgomery, it was former Seahawks running back Mike Davis who saw the most usage in Chicago's season-opening loss to the Green Bay Packers. Davis carried the ball five times for... Read More

Mike Davis (RB, CHI) - 2019 Fantasy Football Sleeper

A lot has been said about what is and what is not a sleeper. And in most cases, looking at sleeper lists, one gets truly surprised to find some great names thrown in them. This season, to me, there are not many players that can be considered capital-S Sleepers like Mike Davis can be. Be it because... Read More

Sammy Watkins (WR, KC) - Fantasy Football Draft Values

BALLER MOVE: Target Around ~67 Overall Current ADP: ~90 Currently, Sammy Watkins is barely a tier-five WR in our rankings with an ADP around 90. All of this while being the number three receiver on a Chiefs team that will have the undisputed QB1 of the league at the helm. Production is coming, whether you... Read More

Larry Fitzgerald (WR, ARI) - Fantasy Football Draft Values

BALLER MOVE: Target Around ~80 Overall Current ADP: ~100 The hype surrounding Kyler Murray is real. Everybody is buying into Arizona's fast-paced and bombing offense under Kliff Kingsbury. Oh, and Larry Fitzgerald will keep burning defenses as he has been doing for the last gazillion years. Some things never change. Who are we trying to lie by... Read More

Marvin Jones (WR, DET) - Fantasy Football Draft Values

BALLER MOVE: Target Around ~85 Overall Current ADP: ~95 Marvin Jones ranks 26th in the last three-year span among receivers in PPR points, but last year he could only finish WR46. That's enough reason for most owners out there to fade him in drafts. Of a potential total of 48 games since the start of... Read More

Robby Anderson (WR, NYJ) - Fantasy Football Draft Values

BALLER MOVE: Target Around ~60 Overall Current ADP: ~70 One year ago, Robby Anderson was being selected at the onset of Round 8. His ADP was the byproduct of optimism that he could perpetuate his late-season momentum from 2017 when he averaged 98 yards-per-game (Weeks 8-13) and accumulated 941 yards. But Anderson failed to build upon that... Read More

Dede Westbrook (WR, JAC) - Fantasy Football Draft Values

BALLER MOVE: Target Around ~70 Overall Current ADP: ~80 Dede Westbrook has not engendered the level of attention that other trendy targets such as D.J. Moore, Curtis Samuel, and Chris Godwin have captured in recent months. However, the third-year receiver's desirable blend of speed, acceleration, and dependable hands should be utilized more effectively than at any other... Read More

Curtis Samuel (WR, CAR) - Fantasy Football Draft Values

BALLER MOVE: Target Around ~85 Overall Current ADP: ~100 Curtis Samuel has been the subject of a surging stream of expectations during recent weeks. The topics have included his improved route-running, his favorable foot speed, and his unchallenged explosiveness. The enthusiasm escalated after his training camp performances, as he demonstrated his ability to blaze beyond defenders... Read More

Darren Waller (TE, OAK) - 2019 Fantasy Football Sleeper

The Oakland Raiders enter 2019 hoping to compete for the AFC West Division crown. They are a team that finished 23rd in total offense in 2018 with 5,739 yards. The passing attack accounted for 3,751 of these yards, which was good for 18th in the league. The offense has gone through some major changes in... Read More

Devin Singletary (RB, BUF) - Rookie Running Back Draft Values

BALLER MOVE: Target Around ~80 Overall Current ADP: ~120 ANALYSIS: Is this the year for Devin Singletary? It is hard to say for sure, but with LeSean McCoy out of the way, it very well could be. One thing we know is the Buffalo Bills are preparing for the future. A future with Josh Allen at... Read More

2 weeks ago

Ty Montgomery (RB, NYJ) - Fantasy Football Draft Values

BALLER MOVE: Target Around ~180 Overall Current ADP: ~215 ANALYSIS: Ty Montgomery is still being drafted outside the top-70 at running back on a lot of sites, which seems wild to me. He's the main backup to Le'Veon Bell in what should be an offense that focuses extensively on their running backs, and Montgomery's history as a wide... Read More

2 weeks ago

Demaryius Thomas (WR, NE) - Fantasy Football Draft Values

BALLER MOVE: Target Around ~220 Overall Current ADP: ~250 ANALYSIS:  This pick is probably more “gut call” than verifiable evidence. The 32-year-old is coming off his worst season as a professional and also tore his Achilles tendon in the second to last game of the season – ironically the same injury suffered by former teammate Emmanuel Sanders.... Read More

2 weeks ago

John Brown (WR, BUF) - Fantasy Football Draft Values

BALLER MOVE: Target Around ~130 Overall Current ADP: ~145 ANALYSIS: As an elite deep threat, John Brown is one of my favorite Best Ball targets, but one that is really worth a roster spot in all leagues. For starters, John Brown is not simply a deep ball threat, as Matt Harmon has been trying to point out for... Read More

Alexander Mattison (RB, MIN) - Rookie Running Back Draft Values

BALLER MOVE: Target Around ~130 Overall Current ADP: ~150 ANALYSIS: Latavius Murray is stepping into the Mark Ingram role with the Saints and he's being drafted at RB34. Alexander Mattison, a rookie third-rounder out of Boise State, steps into the Latavius Murray role with the Vikes...but he's RB55? What gives? Latavius Murray finished RB32 (2018) and RB20...

Darwin Thompson (RB, KC) - Rookie Running Back Draft Values

BALLER MOVE: Target Around ~100 Overall Current ADP: ~120 ANALYSIS: When it comes to guys moving up draft boards, take a look at rookie sixth-rounder Darwin Thompson from Utah State.

Derrius Guice (RB, WAS) - Fantasy Football Draft Values

BALLER MOVE: Target Around ~65 Overall Current ADP: ~75 ANALYSIS: Derrius Guice is a player that most viewed as a potential RB1 before he tore his ACL during training camp last season.

James White (RB, NE) - Fantasy Football Draft Values

BALLER MOVE: Target Around ~50 Overall Current ADP: ~60 ANALYSIS: James White makes the cut with and ADP around 60 right now.

That provided the motivation for Arizona to deploy the 47th overall pick on Kirk during the 2018 NFL draft. Kirk's... Read More

Courtland Sutton (WR, DEN) - 2019 Fantasy Football Sleeper

BALLER MOVE: Target Around ~60 Overall Current ADP: ~70 Denver’s projected distribution of targets among its arsenal of wide receivers is more nebulous than the majority of franchises. The 6’4”, 216-pound Courtland Sutton enters his second season with an opportunity to seize the Broncos’ WR1 responsibilities. His primary competition for targets appeared to reside with fellow...

Tony Pollard (RB, DAL) - 2019 Fantasy Football Draft Values

BALLER MOVE: Target Around ~115 Overall Current ADP: ~155 ANALYSIS: We've grown accustomed to hearing about theEzekiel Elliott and Melvin Gordon contract situations. While the latter looked like a good threat to miss a big chunk of the season, the Zeke didn't. Turns out Elliott wants to join Gordon's exile party now and extend his holdout... Read More

Randall Cobb (WR, DAL) - 2019 Fantasy Football Sleeper

BALLER MOVE: Target Around ~210 Overall Current ADP: ~240 We're a little bit separated from Randall Cobb's best season, which came in 2014.

Devin Funchess (WR, IND) - 2019 Fantasy Football Sleeper

I have to admit that my relationship with Devin Funchess in fantasy terms is one of love and hate. I can't help but see a player with a lot of upside being totally overlooked on average by every owner out there. At the same time, there are some glaring concerns in his game that can... Read More

Justin Jackson (RB, LAC) - 2019 Fantasy Football Sleeper

As the beginning of the NFL season draws near, there are still some unresolved playing time situations around the league. One of those can be found in the backfield of the Los Angeles Chargers. As everyone knows by now, star running back Melvin Gordon has held out the entire preseason in hopes of securing a... Read More

Gus Edwards (RB, BAL) - 2019 Fantasy Football Sleeper

In 2019, the expectations are high for the Baltimore Ravens as they finished 2018 with 2,441 rushing yards, which was good for second in the league. Averaged out, this came to just over 150 rushing yards per game. This is very impressive considering the backfield seemed to be in constant flux, and Lamar Jackson did... Read More

Derek Carr (QB, OAK) - 2019 Fantasy Football Sleeper

You can convince me about drafting a top-tier running back inside the first four or five picks; we're talking about true game-changers there. You can convince me about drafting a top-tier wide receiver from picks five to 15; there are just a few elite-wideouts available, after all. But will you never convince me of getting... Read More

Alexander Mattison (RB, MIN) - 2019 Fantasy Football Sleeper

A grand total of 33 running backs have been drafted inside the first three rounds of the NFL draft from 2015 to 2018.

Terry McLaurin (WR, WAS) - 2019 Fantasy Football Sleeper

BALLER MOVE: Target With Final Pick In Draft Current ADP: ~310 I am a professional sports bettor, which sometimes gets a negative connotation from those who don't understand what I do. The general public would consider my job as a luck-based activity that presents potential dangers and pitfalls, but I would describe my profession in... Read More

3 weeks ago


Greg Olsen (TE, CAR) - 2019 Fantasy Football Sleeper

BALLER MOVE: Target Around ~130 Overall Current ADP: ~140 Olsen is an NFL veteran, and lately he's been a fragile one. In both 2017 and 2018, he only played in seven and nine games respectively. I have always valued him quite high (injuries or not), and he ranked 9th in DVOA when on the field... Read More

3 weeks ago

Philip Rivers (QB, LAC) - 2019 Fantasy Football Sleeper

BALLER MOVE: Target Around ~120 Overall Current ADP: ~130 For the wait-on-quarterback crowd, Philip Rivers is the embodiment of why it's perfectly fine to be one of the last people in your league to draft a QB. I continue to be amazed by how undervalued he is from year to year. His "worst" season in... Read More

Kirk Cousins (QB, MIN) - 2019 Fantasy Football Sleeper

BALLER MOVE: Target Around ~130 Overall Current ADP: ~145 In 2018, Kirk Cousins finished as the fantasy QB13, which is just at the edge of the QB1 tier.

Tre'Quan Smith (WR, NO) - 2019 Fantasy Football Sleeper

BALLER MOVE: Target Around ~170 Overall Current ADP: ~190 One player that is getting hardly any love this year in drafts, is Tre'Quan Smith, the second-year wide receiver for the New Orleans Saints. The Saints are one of the most prolific passing teams in the NFL, and Michael Thomas and Alvin Kamara can't get all of the targets. In... Read More

Jamison Crowder (WR, NYJ) - 2019 Fantasy Football Sleeper

BALLER MOVE: Target Around ~135 Overall Current ADP: ~150 Coming over from Washington after an injury-marred 2018 campaign, Crowder can be described as a route technician out of the slot and has the ability to be an asset to fantasy owners in Jet green. Having played in 47 out of his first 48 games in... Read More
