3 years agoLamar Miller has seen his role diminish a bit over the last few weeks, due to injuries and a heavy early-season workload. He is unlikely to receive 20 carries — as he had in each of the first three weeks this season — in Week 11 against the Raiders. The Broncos’ run game was nonexistent against the Raiders in Week 9, but that was largely because of Oakland’s ability to jump out in front early. That could be the case once again on Monday night, though. As a result, if Miller is still sharing touches with Akeem HuntAlfred Blue has been ruled out with a calf injury — he may have a hard time putting up big fantasy numbers, especially if he can’t find the end zone. Consider Miller a back-end RB1, while Hunt does not have any current appeal.--Harris Yudin - RotoBallerSource: ESPN.com

3 years agoThis isn't really the best update but Mike Conley tweeted 'Game Day Focus' which makes it seem like he is good to go after suffering a quad contusion last night. This is not set in stone but I am going to assume that this means he is good to go. Its better than nothing but Mike Conley should play tonight.--Jake Finnen - RotoBallerSource: Mike Conley

3 years agoBrock Osweiler is coming off his one of his better performances of the year against the Jaguars, but he still managed just 99 yards in Week 10. Overall, he is averaging just 202 yards with 11 total touchdowns and nine interceptions on the year. The Raiders have allowed the second-most yards passing per game so far this year, and Osweiler was able to put up a season-high 269 yards against the Colts, who allow the most yards passing. However, while Indianapolis has just three interceptions on the year (one of which come from Osweiler’s hands), Oakland has totaled three picks in the last three weeks alone. Osweiler could rack up over 200 yards this week, he is likely to commit at least one turnover. He has little value in Week 11, even in two-quarterback leagues.--Harris Yudin - RotoBallerSource: Houston Chronicle

3 years agoWhile this is true of every Green Bay Packers WR, it is hard to predict whether Randall Cobb will be productive in any given week. Green Bay travels to DC to play the toughest defense they have faced since Minnesota, which could be a tough matchup for Cobb. Randall Cobb is probably the best receiver on The Packers roster, but the number of targets he receives from week to week does not reflect that. The so far underwhelming Jordy Nelson will likely be bottled up by Josh Norman, so Cobb is really only fighting Davante Adams for targets here. Cobb could easily have a big game. But there are many weeks where Cobb barely records a catch, so be aware of that risk when starting him. His upside makes him a WR2 this week, but his production could end up anywhere.--Tyger McGuigganSource: ESPN Stats

3 years agoUnfortunately, as much as we love Tony Allen and his 'FIRST TEAM' attitude, he's not a fantasy relevant player unless that jump shot of his starts miraculously hitting. He will cut into other players minutes like James Ennis and Andrew Harrison but hopefully Vince Carter can keep his minutes, because who doesn't want to watch these two on the court together.--Jake Finnen - RotoBallerSource: Ronald Tillery
Share:
3 years agoThis is as obvious as it gets in the NFL and in fantasy: Antonio Brown is still at the top of his class at wide receiver. Between him, Julio Jones, Odell Beckham, and possibly Mike Evans, few receivers have game-changing level talent. With the Cleveland Browns on deck, Antonio Brown is in a prime spot to continue dominating opposing defenses and should see significant targets with Markus Wheaton and Darrius Heyward-Bey already ruled it out. Not that it matters...--Frankie Soler - RotoBallerSource: Pittsburgh Steelers
Share:
3 years agoBen Roethlisberger will have as many of his weapons as he's had all year. Between Antonio Brown, Le'Veon Bell, Eli Rogers' recent breakout, Sammie Coates practicing in full, and Ladarius Green finally on the field, Roethlisberger has an arsenal that rivals Batman's Utility Belt. Even with Markus Wheaton and Darrius Heyward-Bey ruled out, Big Ben should still have a huge outing against a bad Cleveland Browns defense. You're obviously starting him in redraft formats but he also possesses daily fantasy value as well. This is "start em if you got em" situation for the Steelers this week.--Frankie Soler - RotoBallerSource: Pittsburgh Steelers
Share:
3 years agoWith DeAngelo WIlliams still recovering from knee surgery, Fitzgerald Toussaint will keep backing up Le'Veon Bell. Toussaint doesn't exactly have automatic handcuff value sine his talent level isn't anywhere close to DeAngelo's so Bell owners don't need to rush out to grab him. Chances are that if and when Williams is able to return, Toussaint is relegated back down to being number three on the depth chart.--Frankie Soler - RotoBallerSource: Pittsburgh Steelers
Share:
3 years agoDarrius Heyward-Bey is still hampered by a foot injury, ruling him out for week 11. It's a tough break for DHB as he had just been promoted into a starting role a few weeks ago. Still, his fantasy value has always been capped by being surrounded by more talented receivers on the roster. With the recent breakout of Eli Rogers and Sammie Coates hanging around, DHB is facing an uphill battle toward fantasy relevance.--Frankie Soler - RotoBallerSource: Pittsburgh Steelers
Share:
3 years agoMarkus Wheaton's nightmare season continues as he is still currently out with a shoulder injury. Strangely, there wasn't really an update after he visited a specialist earlier in the week. Either way, Wheaton is far from possessing any fantasy value with Eli Rogers, Sammie Coates, and even Cobi Hamilton ahead of him on the depth chart. A free agent after this season, it's highly possible Wheaton has already played his last snap in Pittsburgh.--Frankie Soler - RotoBallerSource: Pittsburgh Steelers
Share:
3 years agoNo surprise here as DeAngelo Williams has been ruled out for Sunday's matchup against the Cleveland Browns. It might be another week or so before Williams is back on the field so Le'Veon Bell owners can safely drop him for now. Fitzgerald Toussaint will remain the backup although he would be a much bigger dropoff than DeAngelo.--Frankie Soler - RotoBallerSource: Pittsburgh Steelers
Share:
3 years agoSo far this season Jordy Nelson has, almost reluctantly, been a WR1. His middling yardage is balanced out by being Green Bay’s premier red zone threat. While Jordy Nelson has not actually played all that impressively, he seems to currently have Aaron Rodgers confidence, as fickle as that confidence may be. This has resulted in a lot of targets over the past few weeks. This week, Nelson has a particularly tough matchup as Green Bay goes on the road to play Washington. Besides being a generally talented defense, Jordy will have a tough matchup against Josh Norman. Norman hasn’t played particularly great this year, but the most effective way to shut down Nelson at this point is to press him and play physical at the line of scrimmage, something which Norman excels at. Don’t expect a big day from Nelson, but he will likely get enough targets to produce something. Treat him as a WR2 in Week 11.--Tyger McGuigganSource: ESPN Stats
Share:
3 years agoAfter making his season debut in week 10, Ladarius Green had yet to have an official practice with his new team. Limited at first with knee soreness, Green is now practicing in full heading into week 11. This is a huge step for a guy that was recovering from ankle surgery for what seemed like forever. Green has some interesting streamer appeal in a cupcake matchup against the Cleveland Browns who are struggling mightily against opposing tight ends.--Frankie Soler - RotoBallerSource: Pittsburgh Steelers
Share:
3 years agoSammie Coates finished the week with a full practice session. This is a big step in the right direction for Coates as he continues to recover from two broken fingers. As far as what this means for fantasy, Coates is going to have to fight off Eli Rogers in order to reclaim the number two receiver spot on the Steelers. He doesn't really possess any standalone value right now outside of dynasty leagues. Barring an epic comeback, Rogers is the only other Pittsburgh wideout worth rostering behind Antonio Brown.--Frankie Soler - RotoBallerSource: Pittsburgh Steelers
Share:
3 years agoWhile James Starks has been a very valuable player to Green Bay throughout his career, he has looked washed up. This year Starks has averaged 2.4 yards per carry. It is unclear why Green Bay is comfortable taking snaps away from Ty Montgomery and giving them to Starks, but that is what has happened. Fortunately, by next week Starks should largely be replaced in the offense by the recently acquired Christine Michael. Until that happens, Starks is likely to receive enough carries to at least be worth a fleeting fantasy consideration. If bye weeks or injuries are leaving you desperate, you can be confident that Starks will put up at least some points in Week 11. He should be viewed as a low-end flex play for Week 11.--Tyger McGuigganSource: ESPN Stats
Share:
3 years agoOnly a couple weeks after releasing the recently acquired Knile Davis, Green Bay added another RB that it hopes can fill Eddie Lacy’s role. Green Bay acquired Christine Michael off of waivers after he was released by Seattle. Michael was averaging 4 YPC behind a line that is far superior to the one in Green Bay. We can expect his introduction into the offense to happen at about the same rate as the aborted Knile Davis implementation. That means Christine Michael is likely to see at most one or two snaps in Week 11. By Week 13 you should expect Michael to be taking the majority of the snaps. Green Bay seems to hate having to give the ball to Ty Montgomery and James Starks is washed up. Do not start Michael in Week 11, but he should be a useful player for a playoff run.--Tyger McGuigganSource: Michael Rodney
Share:
3 years agoFor a brief stretch this season, Ty Montgomery showed himself to be Green Bay’s best skill position player. As the starting running back, he was an effective runner and pass catcher out of the backfield. But last week, Montgomery lost that role to the slow and aging James Starks, who returned from injury. His snap count was drastically decreased and he produced little. His demotion makes almost no sense considering the futility that Starks has had rushing the ball but Green Bay does not feel comfortable giving Montgomery more than 7-8 carries a game, which was further evidenced by their decision to sign Christine Michael. Injuries or a change of direction by the coaching staff could throw Ty Montgomery back into a big time role, but you should wait until it happens before you start him. He has talent, so keep him on roster but avoid starting Montgomery in Week 11 as Green Bay goes up against the toughest defense they have faced in weeks.--Tyger McGuigganSource: Joseph Bonham
Share:
3 years agoDavante Adams has shown that he is for real. He is on pace for 1,100 yards with 11 touchdowns this year despite a slow start. He will be travelling to DC to take on The Redskins. Washington will be the toughest defense Green Bay has faced in a while which will likely affect Adams more than other receivers. Adams’ production is largely dependent on whether the rest of Green Bay’s offense can get going. It is already hard to predict which Green Bay receiver will have a big day from week to week, so the added degree of difficulty of a tough defense makes Adams a risky pick. Adams has topped 60 yards receiving in only 5 games this year. Adams’ ceiling and floor are very far apart for this game. In the aggregate he is producing like a high end WR2, but the high variability means he should be treated as closer to a flex.--Tyger McGuigganSource: ESPN Stats
Share:
3 years agoFor the third week this year, the narrative of “What’s wrong with Rodgers?” has dominated Green Bay’s headlines. The speculation has widened to include a possible rift with head coach Mike McCarthy as well as blaming his strained family relationship. But during Green Bay’s three game losing streak Rodgers has been fantastic. He has thrown for 914 yards with 9 touchdowns the last three weeks even as Green Bay’s offense has struggled. If he keep sit up, he will prove to have been worth a second round pick. Rodgers will take on the toughest defense he has seen in many weeks when he goes to DC to play the Redskins. The Packers will be missing two offensive linemen this game which could lead to struggles. But Rodgers has found a way to get himself points all year, no matter the team’s struggles. Expect that trend to continue. He is a must start in all league formats.--Tyger McGuigganSource: Tyler Dunne
Share:
3 years agoTyler Eifert has been a dominant force over the past two games he has played. The star tight end has racked up 12 catches for 198 yards and a touchdown over that span, after missing most of the year with ankle and back injuries. Eifert was limited in Wednesday's practice with a knee issue, but he returned to practice fully on Thursday and should be fine for his showdown against the Bills. Eifert should remain a focal point of the Bengals offense, especially in the red zone. He is as good a bet to score a touchdown this weekend as any tight end in the league and, as such, can be trusted as a top-five option at the position for Week 11.--Matt Terelle - RotoBallerSource: ESPN.com
Share:
3 years agoA.J. Green will be looking to reach the 1,000-yard mark for the sixth consecutive season in Week 11 against the Bills. Green is sitting on 964 yards this year and should have no trouble hitting the milestone against Buffalo. The Bills' secondary has been struggling this season as Buffalo's pass defense ranks just 23rd in the league in DVOA according to Football Outsiders. Green should spend most of the day covered by Stephon Gilmore, who held him to four catches for 36 yards when these two teams met last season. Of course, the Bengals had a lot more weapons on offense to throw to last season as well. Lock Green in as a strong WR1 this weekend.--Matt Terelle - RotoBallerSource: buffalobills.com
Share:
3 years agoGiovani Bernard put together a fantastic stretch back in Weeks 6-8 while operating as Cincinnati's lead back, but lately he has cooled off. Bernard's recent struggles can be directly linked to the emergence of a fully healthy Jeremy Hill. Bernard saw just 10 touches against the Giants last week, carrying the ball seven times for just 17 yards. He hasn't been very efficient running the ball this season as he's averaging just 3.76 yards per carry. Usually, Bernard is able to make up for a lack of rushing yards with his work in the passing game, but he has caught just five passes over the past three games. Bernard is hard to trust as anything more than a flex play in Week 11 against a Bills run defense that is ranked 22nd in DVOA according to Football Outsiders.--Matt Terelle - RotoBallerSource: Football Outsiders
Share:
3 years agoJeremy Hill's fantasy outlook has been trending in the right direction over the past few weeks. Hill has reclaimed lead back duties after Giovani Bernard held that distinction a few weeks back. He has now scored a touchdown in three straight games, which brings his season total up to six. The problem with Hill, as always, is his lack of involvement in the passing game. Hill has just seven receptions on the season, meaning he likely won't help your fantasy team if he doesn't score a touchdown. He's a low-end RB2 in standard leagues this weekend against a Bills run defense that ranks just 22nd in the league in DVOA according to Football Outsiders.--Matt Terelle - RotoBallerSource: Football Outsiders
Share:
3 years agoAndy Dalton popped up on the injury report with a shoulder injury this past Wednesday, but it is not expected to be serious. While he should be under center this weekend for a showdown with the Bills, Dalton has settled in as a middling QB2 this season. The Bengals offense simply hasn't been as explosive as it was last season and Dalton's numbers have suffered as a result. Dalton has just 10 passing touchdowns on the season. He can't be trusted as anything more than a QB2 for Week 11's game against Buffalo.--Matt Terelle - RotoBallerSource: ESPN.com
Share:
3 years agoGary Barnidge had his second-worst performance of the year in Week 10 against Baltimore. He caught just one pass for eight yards in that game. Barnidge's value has bottomed out after he turned in an All-Pro season in 2015. He hasn't been used in the red zone all season and lately hasn't been getting looks in the middle of the field, either. Barnidge is nothing more than a TE2 at this point and it's unlikely that fantasy owners are counting on him for production any longer. Making matters worse for the veteran, the Steelers have been solid against tight ends this season, ranking 18th in the league in fantasy points allowed to the position.--Matt Terelle - RotoBallerSource: ESPN.com
Share:
3 years agoAndrew Cashner signed a one-year, $10 million contract with the Rangers on Friday, and will presumably slide into the back of the rotation heading into spring training. There was a time when Cashner was considered an up-and-coming talent, but those days appear to be gone. The 30-year-old pitched to a combined 5.25 ERA in time spent with the Marlins and Padres last season, and will now move to a hitter's haven in Arlington. Cahsner could be considered a matchup play on the road in 2017, but that will likely be the extent of his usefulness to fantasy owners.--Christopher OlsonSource: MLB.com
Share:
3 years agoCorey Coleman has struggled in his two games since returning to the field, catching just six passes for 58 yards. Coleman has been a victim of a Browns offense that has been extremely inefficient and has really been struggling to put together long drives lately. Look for him to bounce back against the Steelers in what could be a high-scoring affair. With Terrelle Pryor expected to draw most of the Steelers' defensive attention, Coleman could be set to break out in Week 11. He sets up as a boom/bust WR3 against a Pittsburgh pass defense that ranks just 21st in DVOA according to Football Outsiders.--Matt Terelle - RotoBallerSource: Football Outsiders
Share:
3 years agoTerrelle Pryor has enjoyed a big breakout season in 2016, ranking first on the Browns in receptions, receiving yards, and touchdowns. Pryor could have a big game against a Pittsburgh pass defense that is ranked 21st in DVOA according to Football Outsiders. Pryor should see plenty of volume in a game that figures to see the Browns trailing early and passing often in attempts to catch up. Start Pryor as a solid WR2 in all fantasy formats this weekend.--Matt Terelle - RotoBallerSource: Football Outsiders
Share:
3 years agoWillie Snead caught four passes for 33 yards and was held scoreless in Week 11. He appeared to have a great chance to contribute against Carolina's young secondary, but was just one of many mouths to feed for Drew Brees. Six different Saints saw at least four targets in the game, with Snead the recipient of five himself. He is very much a boom or bust play each week, depending on the game plan the Saints roll out. He is a WR3/flex consideration each week going forward.--Pierre Camus - RotoBallerSource: ESPN.com
Share:
3 years agoCoby Fleener caught just three balls against the Panthers on Thursday Night Football, but he made it count by catching his lone red zone target for a touchdown. It was Fleener's third TD of the season - the first since Week 6 against the same Panthers team. Since that same contest, he has failed to reach 50 receiving yards in a game. Fleener has definitely not lived up to his contract so far and is merely a TE2 who will rely on a trip to the end zone for fantasy purposes.--Pierre Camus - RotoBallerSource: NFL.com
