1/21:Ty Montgomery is likely to see a lot of work as both a running back and wide receiver this Sunday in Atlanta. With three of Green Bay’s top four wide receivers ailing, the Packers will have no choice but to feature Montgomery as a wide receiver in a number of sets. But they also clearly trust Montgomery as a runner more than Christine Michael, so he is likely to get at least 12 carries on top of his consistent usage in the passing game. Montgomery had a fairly disappointing yardage game last week, but he scored tworead more...
1/21:With the Patriots hoping to contain both Antonio Brown and Le'Veon Bell, Eli Rogers is worth a look in daily formats this week. Sure, that doesn't always hold weight since the Steelers are masterful in getting both of their star offensive weapons rolling, but playoff DFS is a different story. There are limited options this week, so you're going to have to cut costs somewhere, likely at your third wide receiver. You'll basically be hoping for a touchdown, and Rogers coming at a cheaper price than most other wideouts should put him on your radar.--read more...
1/21:Ladarius Green is shipping up to Boston. Green being able to travel with the team is a great sign for his availability on Sunday. His return to practice on Friday might not have been as a full participant, but the important factor is that he spoke to the media. That was the first time he had done so since his lingering concussion issues came to be. Granted, this could all be classic NFL posturing but in the event Green is indeed active, he'll likely be a boom-or-bust fantasy options. If he misses yet another game, Jesse Jamesread more...
1/21:Pittsburgh's tight end situation is completely up in the air heading into the AFC Championship Game. With Ladarius Green finally returning to practice on Friday, we're unlikely to know which tight end will be starting until Sunday morning. Given the nature of concussions in general, you're either cleared to play or you aren't. It's not like James will still see increased touches because Green is being "eased in." That means if Ladarius is active, Jesse James won't be viable for fantasy. If inactive, James is most certainly worth his low cost in DFS coming off an 83-yardread more...
1/21:One of the top storylines this week has been whether the New England pass defense can contain Antonio Brown. Yes, they've given up the fewest points in the league, and yes, they've had success against the opposing team's best receiver. Know what the difference is here? They haven't faced Antonio Brown with Ben Roethlisberger throwing him the ball. Even when Landry Jones faced the Patriots back in October, Brown still had seven receptions for 106 yards. You'll want to load up on either Antonio or Julio Jones on Sunday, and you can't go wrongread more...
1/21:The key to upsetting the Patriots in New England may very well be leaning on star rusher Le'Veon Bell. Pretty simple analysis here, but if you were going up against the best quarterback in NFL history and you had the best running back in the league in your arsenal, wouldn't you lean on said running back as much as possible to keep the opposing offense off the field? That should be your expectation in Sunday's AFC Championship Game. Le'Veon Bell will be worth every penny in DFS, so now is not the time to start pinching pennies.--read more...
1/21:Ben Roethlisberger's home/road splits haven't been all that great this season. At home, Ben has 20 touchdowns to five interceptions as opposed to a nine touchdowns and eight interceptions on the road. The numbers are certainly jarring, and recency bias will have Pittsburgh's touchdown-less game in Kansas City fresh on everybody's mind. In terms of actual NFL football, the stats are kind of moot since this is one of the best quarterbacks in the league, one who already has two rings. The fantasy aspect is what you're here for, though. It's best to avoid the Steelers-Patriots matchup inread more...
1/21:With Green Bay’s wide receiver corps in disarray, Aaron Rodgers will be forced to look elsewhere in the passing game. The person who stands as most likely to see his role increased is Jared Cook, who has been improving each and every week. Atlanta is not a particularly great matchup for Cook, though. Atlanta is 11th against tight ends by DVOA. But Rodger’s confidence in Cook has been growing, and that increased confidence and more targets should lead to a big game.--Tyger McGuiggan - RotoBallerSource: Football Outsiders
1/21:Green Bay’s wide receiver corps is dealing with a number of injuries. Jordy Nelson is attempting to return after fracturing his ribs two weeks ago and both Davante Adams and Geronimo Allison missed practice Friday due to injuries. According to Green Bay head coach Mike McCarthy: “In the regular-season ... mindset, none of them would play." But none of the players have been ruled out yet. All of them will likely be game-time decisions. It is unlikely that all of them will play, so if any do suit up, the lack of other options will forceread more...
1/21:With only four teams left in the playoffs, the list of potential quarterbacks has become very limited. All four remaining QBs have been good fantasy options, but among that list Aaron Rodgers stands alone. Over the course of the entire season, Rodgers has been fantasy’s best QB, and his level of play lately seems to be as high as it has been for his entire career. In addition to the high level of play, Rodgers has an excellent matchup this Sunday. He travels to Atlanta to play one of the worst defenses in the NFL. The game couldread more...
1/20:T.Y. Hilton finished the season with 1,448 receiving yards, the most in the NFL in 2016. He also caught 91 passes on 156 targets and six touchdowns. He had eight games of 90-plus receiving yards, 12 games of nine targets or more and averaged 15.9 yards per reception. It was an excellent fantasy season for Hilton, who set career highs for receptions and receiving yards this season. He also played in all 16 games, the third time he has done that in his career. Heading into the 2017 fantasy offseason, Hilton will be at the very top ofread more...
1/20:Frank Gore carried the ball 263 times in 2016 for 1,025 yards and scored eight total touchdowns for the Colts this season. He also added 38 receptions for 277 yards and put together another strong season. The 32 year-old became the oldest running back to run for 1,000 yards in the last three decades. Gore now has nine seasons of 1,000 rushing yards or more and has eight seasons of scoring 170 fantasy points or more in his career. Most impressively, Gore tallied more than 60 total yards from scrimmage in 15 games for the Colts. It's toughread more...
1/20:Ladarius Green did return to practice Friday but obviously draws the questionable tag. He's still in the concussion protocol with an illness to boot. The illness is nothing. The concussion issues, not so much. Hopefully there's some sort of final say tomorrow afternoon. The way things look now, Green is on the doubtful side of playing against the Patriots. He's too risky to bet on in fantasy, while Jesse James will be a decent low-priced flier in DFS.--Frankie Soler - RotoBallerSource: Pittsburgh Steelers
1/20:Andrew Luck underwent shoulder surgery this week, per NFL.com. The surgery is meant to repair a lingering issue that affected Luck's play during the season. For Colts fans, this comes as depressing news. After witnessing a bounce back season from Luck, they now have to worry about the health of his throwing shoulder. Reports suggest Luck will not be able to throw at full strength until sometime in July, putting his availability for the 2017 preseason at risk. Luck finished this season completing 63.5% of his passes and threw for 4,240 yards, 31 touchdowns and 13 interceptions. Theread more...
1/20:Jeremy Kerley caught 64 passes for 667 yards and three touchdowns for the 49ers this season. The 49ers struggled to score all season, but it was a strong year for Kerley. He set career highs in touchdowns and receptions and finished the season with eight games of five receptions or more. He also had six games of 60 receiving yards or more as the most consistent receiver for the 49ers. Kerley had moments where his name popped up as a fantasy streamer this season, but he never could string three productive games together to be under consideration. Itread more...
