Kansas City Chiefs

We're Not in Kansas Anymore


There are steady 20-plus MPH winds w/35 MPH gusts in New York and that will prevent the deep ball from being a major factor in the Giants game vs KC.

Look for Alex Smith revert to the dink and dunk game which defined his career before this year’s break-out campaign. I really don’t think it hurts anyone’s value though. The Giants problems stem from poor talking and Hill can take a screen pass for 80 yards at any time. The Giants are so poor against the TE that Kelce should still be heavily used in DFS. We should also see a nice bump in Hunt’s usage across the board.

Sterling Shepard

New York Giants

Migraines Sideline Shepard


The Giants may be without WR Sterling Shepard, a late addition to their injury report, due to migraines, source says. They’ll check him out closer to kickoff to be sure.
Update: Sterling Shepard (migraines) is inactive for Week 11 against the Chiefs.

This would have been an awesome match-up for Shepard, and he was looking at plenty of targets, but I don’t mess with migraines. I’m pivoting to other players, and none of them are Giants.

Leonard Fournette

Jacksonville Jaguars

Rookie Wall?


Fournette came off of essentially 20 days of resting and rehabbing the injured ankle suffered in the fourth quarter of Jacksonville’s October 15th loss to the Rams, when he suited up last week against the L.A. Chargers. Last week, he carried 17 times for 33 yards. According to Florida Football Insiders, Leonard Fournette's ankle is "still not right," and he could be limited if he plays this week against the Browns.

I’ve heard a few people recognize that Cleveland’s run defense has been underrated this year. They started out pretty strong, but they have been fading lately, especially when it comes to the pass-catching backs over the past five games. Yeldon or Ivory could be that sneaky flex you’re looking for.

Update: Fournette is active, Ivory battling illness.

Jacksonville Jaguars

Ground and Pound


According to Forecast.io, it's expected to be 39° F and with a 18% chance of snow and 20 MPH wind in Cleveland at 1:00 PM ET.

This is something to watch Sunday morning, especially if you were high on the Jacksonville passing game facing Cleveland this weekend. The snow doesn’t matter, but the wind could eliminate any deep balls. If you’re looking for a Dede or K. Cole explosion, like I have been, I think we’re going to have to wait at least one more week. Marquis Lee should be fine, he’ll still get his targets. The running game should benefit, but Fournette is questionable with an ankle.

Jay Ajayi

Philadelphia Eagles

Ajayi Slated for More Work in Week 11


Coaches have come out and said there is a concentrated effort to increase Ajayi's workload.

Fantasy Goo: Certainly Corey Clement impressed in their last game, Week 9 against Denver. However, he won't sustain the pace of 3TDs on just 13 touches. I do like both players in GPP, I would certainly save Clement for the larger tournaments where you take on more risk in order to differentiate yourself from the field. Still, Ajayi has had a bye week and a game to get familiar with his new digs. Each game from now on, should highlight his comfort and growth in the system.

Devonta Freeman

Atlanta Falcons

Coleman to Increase Workload Sans Freeman


Devonta Freeman is in concussion protocol. That leaves Tevin 'Betchya Bottom Dollar" Coleman to pick up extra duties.

Fantasy Goo: Freeman was taken out very early on in last week's game. Because of this, Coleman seized the reins with command. He finished as Draft Kings 10th best RB of the week. Their Week 11 matchup with the Seahawks could easily turn into a high schoring affair as Seattle is without starters Richard Sherman, Kam Chancellor, and Jarran Reed. What Seattle puts on the field will not resemble what we are accustomed to. Coleman should seize thee opportunity.

Buffalo Bills

Bills Getting Gashed


In the last 3 weeks, the Buffalo Bills have given up 8 TDS. There is not a team in the league that has given up more than 8 rushing TDS ALL SEASON!

Fantasy Goo: There is trepidation about Gordon this week. Ekeler made a bit of a name for himself last week as Gordon owners experienced fits or rage and madness last week. I still like Gordon even in cash this week. Still whichever back you prefer, they should have a field day.

Jamaal Williams

Green Bay Packers

Next Man Up


As expected, Ty Montgomery officially ruled OUT for Sunday against the Ravens. Jamaal Williams should start at running back.

Williams is not Montgomery or Jones, I would not recommend starting him if you can prevent it. It will probably take a positive game script for him to be heavily use, don’t be surprised if we see Cobb being used in the backfield, especially in third-and-long situations.

Alshon Jeffery

Philadelphia Eagles

Open Door for Agholor


Eagles coach Doug Pederson says that Alshon Jeffery's ankle injury has been lingering for a while, but he is "optimistic" he'll play against the Cowboys Sunday night. He will be listed as questionable.

I’m looking at Nelson Agholor having a nice opportunity to put up some points with Dallas being the 24th ranked defense against opposing WR’s. Ertz coming off of the injury report is an obvious play, he’s a must start whenever he’s on the field.

It seems as though Jeffery plays through injuries every year, but he’s not very effective when he does. His injuries tend to linger and former performance enhancer users tend to get hurt more often.

Kareem Hunt

Kansas City Chiefs

KC Ready to Run


The KC/NYG game could experience heavy winds, and certainly, a blowout of the Giants is a likely outcome as well. If either, or both of these potential situations play out, it could be good things for the KC ground game.

Fantasy Goo: The Giants have surrendered 3 rushing TD in their last 2 games. On the season, they have given up the 5th most yards to opposing backs. Hunt is a great cash game play, and in GPPs, I will toss out a few line-ups with West, maybe 5%. If indeed it is a blowout, the Chiefs, led by Reid who is 16-2 off a bye, could look to lighten the load for their workhorse RB and let Charcandrick bat cleanup.

Sterling Shepard

New York Giants

Sterling Shepard's Time to Shine


The Giants are going to need to put the ball in the air against KC. Keep an eye on the winds in this one. If it is north of 15mph, I will lessen my DFS shares.

Fantasy Goo: If the winds are not bad, Shep could get some looks as he should dominate KC's Steven Nelson. There are 84 starting cornerbacks in the NFL for Week #11. Nelson comes in at #80 according to PFF

Tom Brady

New England Patriots

Brady a Top Bet for DFS Cash Games


The Patriots stayed in mile-high country last week in order to get acclimated to higher altitudes. The Raiders remained at sea level. This week they square off in Mexico City, which is much higher than one mile up. The difference could be seen in the 2nd half where the Raiders could run out of gas.

Fantasy Goo: Regardless of the elevation narrative, this game opened as the only 50 pointer this coming week. Football Outsiders ranks Oakland dead last for defensive DVOA, weighted defense, and overall pass ranking. Plus, Tom Brady is a great stack with Gronk against Oakland who is notoriously bad versus tight ends. Finally, New England will likely be missing Hogan, the recipient of 11 red zone targets this season. Gronk could easily be the beneficiary, as he has 13 himself.

FanDuel Triple Play - Pass Go Collect 2TDS


This Sunday is "National Play Monopoly day." What does that mean for FD? Absolutely nothing, but I'm taking a "chance" and grabbing these 3 players that have a bit higher price tag because that's how I won at Monopoly.

Mike Evans @MIA - $7,800 - Much like AJ Green last week, I am banking on Evans to deliver his game of redemption and bounce back in a BIG way. Ryan Fitzpatrick will only have eyes for the 6'5 Evans as he once did for Brandon Marshall in NY. Evans will coast down A1A for 2TDS!

Travis Kelce @NYG - $7,500 - Kelce has 3TDs in the last 3 games. The Giants are giving up a TD every game to opposing TEs this season. That's crazy! Momma ain't raise no fool. 1+1= 2TDs!

Melvin Gordon vsBUF - $7,800 - The Bills gave up 50FPTS at home to the Saints dynamic duo of Mark Ingram and Alvin Kamara just last week, and now have to fly to LA. Gordon will stampede all over the Buffalo Bills. 2TDs in da house!

Off The Top Of Our Heads - 2016 After Week 2

Itchy's Thoughts


C’Mon! I Wanted CinciNASTY!

Call me crazy, but that Pitt/Cin game was a snoozefest. I know the field conditions weren’t great, but where was the chippiness? What happened to the AJ/AB competition? Green ended up with 2 catches for 38 yards and AB had 4 catches for 39 yards. A game decided by an iffy fumble call wasn’t what we were hoping for…

 

ALF of the People

As a Dallas fan I spent a handful of years legitimately hating Alfred Morris the football player. To see him take time to hang with the FEDEX Field crew before Sunday’s Dallas/Washington game is pretty awesome though. He’s a nice guy after all.

2016 Raiders, the 2015 Saints?

Oakland has given up 34 and 35 points to the Saints and Falcons respectively in weeks one and two. The season is young but you have to wonder if maybe the Raiders defense is transgressing right before our eyes. At least their offense has been robust enough to keep the Raiders in games, but if they keep letting teams score a gajillion points every week it might be time to start figuring out how to get Carr, Cooper, and Crabtree. Next up, Tennessee Titans.

 

GABBERT = GOAT!

Blain Gabbert GOAT

 

Freeman Schmeeman

Don’t look now, but Tevin Coleman is outpacing Devonta Freeman in targets so far in this young season, 8 to 4. Freeman was the more effective rusher in week 2 versus the Raiders, but owners have got to be frustrated with his lack of involvement in the passing game. Freeman didn’t get a single target versus fantasy football’s most generous defense. Last season Freeman had 97 targets in the passing game, this season he’s on pace for 32.

 

 

PyroLytics Thoughts


 

Jeff Fisher just won the Super Bowl!

Not really but as a Rams fan it’s what I call his Super Bowl. That’s all that seems to matter to him, whether he beats the Seahawks or not. It’s like he goes out of his way to extensively game plan for just this game. If only he put that much effort into all the other games on the schedule.

 

It’s Dwayne Washington time:

At 6’1, 223 pounds, Washington packs a powerful punch and if that wasn’t enough his 4.4 speed will make the second guess your angle on him. He’s a burner, a big bodied burner at that. Abdullah could miss some time due to injury and Washington has replaced Zach Zenner as being a goal line back the first 2 weeks of the season. Stash Dwayne Washington.

 

The Crow is feasting:

Hard to believe but Crowell as of Sunday night currently sits as the third leading rusher in the league after that massive performance against the Ravens, compiling 133 yards on 18 attempts. The Crows value is completely up in the air at this time considering the Browns are now strutting out their third string QB Cody Kessler. Yes, the Browns may want to emphasize the running game but stacked boxes aren’t a thing to mess with.

 

Stash Kenneth Dixon:

Two weeks in and neither Justin Forsett nor Terrance West have run away with the starting running back job in Baltimore. Dixon isn’t expected to be back until after week 4 so you have some time to wait out this transaction. Dixon has plenty of pass catching upside and could easily take over that role and quite possibly a feature role. It’s also fairly promising that Buck Allen has taken a complete backseat to Forsett and West.

 

As good as Gould:

Connor Barth missed a 31-yard field goal for Chicago on Monday night. According to NFL Research, Former Bears kicker Robbie Gould was 101-101 on field goals 31-yards & under. Ouch.

 

Sleepless in Seattle:

The Seahawks drive chart in 2016 is as follows:

Punt

FG

Punt

Int

Punt

Punt

FG

Punt

Downs

Fumble

Punt

Touchdown

Punt

FG

Punt

Punt

Fumble

Punt

Punt

Punt

Punt

Going out on a limb and saying that’s not good.

 


Buy into Chris Ivory:
Gus Bradley is giving Rex Ryan a run for his money on who should be the first head coach fired this year. Look for Gus to find a scapegoat as he tries to buy time before their bye week in week 5, if he even makes it to the bye week. That scapegoat will be none other than TJ Yeldon and the Jags running game. TJ has looked less than stellar so far and Ivory is in prime position to steal carries and potentially take away the majority of carries. Leaving Ivory as a potential buy-low candidate. 


Stop with the Asiata talk:
Adrian Peterson goes down with an injury and the first thing that gets brought up is the 2014 season."Well when AP wasn't able to play in 2014 Asiata had the majority of carries over Mckinnon, therefore Asiata is gonna be the backup." Noit's Mckinnon plain and simple. No, it's not surprising that a a guy who converted from quarterback to running back had less carries in his rookie year than a guy who already had two years in the system. Mckinnon is the far superior talent, with Asiata your hoping for a touchdown or bust.

Whaddup Cuz:

Cousins has some major accuracy issues at the moment… painful to watch. No one was caressing the MSU grads nuts than me all offseason… SHIT!!

 

 

Chute out!

So much for that high scoring New Orleans Saints vs. New York Giants game. Went all in on that one being a shootout, and it was a total dud instead.

 

 

Arizona’s triplet in the backfield with the triplets split out.

David Johnson is a triplet, he has an older sister born minutes before him and a younger sister just after. Great story, wishing this kid the best.

Tamme Gimpala No More

Time to start looking deeper at Jacob Tamme… he’s getting it done. He’s turned 16 targets into 11 catches for 126 yards and touchdown through 2 games.

 

 

Thanks for calling CDW…

Ben McAdoo looks like a customer service coordinator for CDW, not an FNL head coach.

Just hand D. Murray the keys to the ship.

Could you imagine if DeMarco Murray got the full workload in Tennessee? As an owner, yeah, me too.

  

 

Is Todd Gurley even startable at this point?

If you look at this dudes game splits, it’s troubling. Since starting his NFL career last year with four 100-yard games in his first 5 games, he’s only had one game over the century mark since.

 

 

What are these Kelcie kids eating?

How can there be so many Kelce’s in the NFL? There should be at least on Noonan.

 

 

Kanye West floor tickets are $200

 

The Parking for the Rams game hit up to $200 for a space. Good lawd. I just bought a couple general admission tickets to see Kanye West in his home town of Chicago at the house that Jordan built, The United Center for $200. Still feel bad for the St. Louis Rams fans, I don’t care if there were 90,000 fans in the Coliseum yesterday - the stadium the tax payers of STL (which they are still paying for) was built in

Home Field Dis-Advantage?

 

As I write this piece and watch The Bears at Home on MNF, I just friggin’ hope they can perform better at home this year than the 1-7 stinkfest they put up in Soldier Field last season. I was at 4 of those loses, it’s a tough pill to swallow when spend so much money and don’t put a winning product on the field for the ones paying the concessions. Holy crap do I wish we had hired Bruce Arians a few years back. Equally, I hope Kevin White shuts everyone up tonight and has a stellar game.
