Tyrod Taylor

Buffalo Bills

Ready to Roll


In Tampa's two road games this season, both QBs (Case Keenum & Carson Palmer) had top-4 fantasy weeks. Tyrod Taylor gets TB in BUF Sunday coming off his bye week. His schedule looks pretty sweet for the rest of the season as well. He'll have to figure out who he's going to throw to, but he'll get rushing yards to secure his floor.

Amari Cooper

Oakland Raiders

Get Right Spot?


Kansas City has the most air yards against this year, and the 6th most receiving yards against. Both KC CB’s have given up 3 TDs. The most vulnerable depth to attack KC is 15 yards. Over their careers, Cooper has been better at 15 yard depths and up than Crabtree.
Eventually NFL players break out of their slumps, because they are good, even Cooper. Tonight could be the night, there’s nothing like the spotlight to get your superstar going.

Adrian Peterson

New Orleans Saints

Well, that was fast...


After just one game, Adrian Peterson has 36.51% of the Arizona Cardinals running back rush yards this season.

Fantasy Goo: He's an RB2 for now, but if he can stay healthy... watch out.

Buffalo Bills

The Bills are under center more in 2017


Last season the Buffalo Bills ran shotgun on 81% of their plays, 74% of their runs came from the shotgun. In 2017 however, Buffalo is averaging just 44% plays from shotgun. Just 25% of their runs have come from shotgun. They are averaging 5.18 yards per rush in shotgun and 2.76 from under center.

Fantasy Goo: McCoy is currently 25th in fantasy points for RBs coming off his bye week with only one 100-yard game and zero touchdowns. Might be time to change it up a little bit HC Sean McDermott and OC Rick Dennison.

Minnesota Vikings

FanDuel Triple Play

Derrick Henry

Tennessee Titans

Titans in the Backfield


Mike Mularkey said the run game split on MNF (near 50-50 for DeMarco Murray-Derrick Henry) was a good model. He also added that Henry is the go-to RB in the 4th quarter.

Fantasy Goo: I believe this is the target, but we will see this vary from week-to-week. If Murray is healthy or fired-up, like he may be after his coaches’ comments, he will be the guy to start. As the season whines down so will Murray, buy Henry for your playoff run, he’s more than just a handcuff.

Marlon Mack

Indianapolis Colts

Turbin Done for Season


Colts HC Chuck Pagano expects RB Robert Turbin to miss rest of season with arm injury he suffered Monday night. Turbin has averaged 6+ touches per game over the past four weeks.

Fantasy Goo: This might seem insignificant, but I expect Marlon Mack will pick-up all of those touches. An extra 6 touches from Mack could mean a major boost in production. Grab him if you can, he’ll be explosive when Luck comes back.

Ezekiel Elliott

Dallas Cowboys

Two More Weeks of Zeke


Ezekiel Elliott has been granted another temporary restraining order by the Southern District of New York, and will be allowed to play Week 7. The restraining order, is for 14 days. So it appears Elliott will also be good for Week 8.

Fantasy Goo: Hold off on all the Morris/McFadden love for a couple more weeks. If you have them you’re probably holding if you’re a contender, but I’d sell high to the Zeke owner if you can. This is gearing up for Zeke to be out during the fantasy playoffs.

Kenny Golladay

Detroit Lions

Golladay. Celebrate


If we picked up Golladay
Take some time to celebrate
Just one day out of life
It would be, it would be so nice
Everybody spread the word
We’re gonna have a celebration

Every season there is that player that propels a team to the fantasy promise land. Kenny Golladay possesses that high upside potential down the stretch that can be invaluable. Golladay last played in week 3 before suffering a hamstring injury, and Matthew Stafford has missed his 213lb 6’4 receiver. After throwing for 7TDs in the first 3 weeks; Stafford has only thrown for 2TDs before exploding in week 6 against the Saints with 3 tosses. This was a result of the game being out of hand and being forced to throw 52 times. Golden Tate was injured in this game and word is he will be out a few weeks. The Lions are on a bye in week 7, which gives Tate a free week to rest, but more importantly gives Golladay a free week to get ready to explode on the scene once again at home in week 8 against the Steelers. Tate and Marvin Jones Jr are what they are at this point. Golladay gives Stafford the kind of big threat target that he has lacked since the Decepticon leader himself MEGATRON retired. You can’t teach height and talent, and that is a gunslingers favorite type of weapon to use.

George Kittle

San Francisco 49ers

Waiver Wire Target


Kittle had a very average game this week catching four passes for 46 yards, but there could be some good news that came out of this game for him. C.J. Beathard has been named the starter for the rest of the season, and that was Kittle’s college quarterback, so you know there is immediate chemistry there that could pay nice dividends in the coming weeks

Alex Collins

Baltimore Ravens

Waiver Wire Target


Collins got the majority of the carries for the Ravens this week with 15 of them for 74 yards. He looks like he will be in a time share with Javorious Allen, but this was the first time we saw him take the majority of the carries, making him more interesting going forward.

Austin Hooper

Atlanta Falcons

Waiver Wire Target


Without Sanu the Falcons leaned a lot more on Hooper, who finished with seven receptions for 48 yards. He is becoming a bigger part of the Falcons offense, and he has big play potential that makes him a worthy add.

Ted Ginn Jr

New Orleans Saints

Waiver Wire Target


Ginn is the deep threat receiver for Drew Brees and they connected on a 20-yard score this week. Ginn finished with four receptions for 66 yards including that score. The Saints offense is lacking the big play and Ginn can provide the pop in the passing game.

Samaje Perine

Washington Redskins

Waiver Wire Target


Perine finally found the endzone this week, but his final stat line was not that pretty with nine carries for just 23 yards and three receptions for 24 yards and a touchdown. Samaje has lacked the big play, which has limited him in fantasy.

D'Onta Foreman

Houston Texans

Waiver Wire Target


Foreman got his customary 12 carries and this week gained 59 yards, but was once again held without a touchdown. He is getting a consistent workload, but he is not busting the big play to make him a worthy fantasy start.

Mike Wallace

Baltimore Ravens

Waiver Wire Target


After a stellar week Wallace came back down to earth, catching three passes for 30 yards. Wallace is a boom or bust.

Kendall Wright

Chicago Bears

Waiver Wire Target


Wright was basically invisible this game with two catches for 36 yards, and did not make a catch until the third quarter. There is too much inconsistency in the Bears passing offense.

Pyro #FF Power Rankings - After Week 4 - 2017

The power of power rankings is a huge advantage over your unknowing competition. It gives a distinct number for the strength of a team's position group in terms of fantasy points scored, and an idea of how poor a defense is against a particular area of the other team's attack. In developing power rankings for fantasy football it is important to start with points scored as they are the engine that drives your fantasy team. Dominant offenses produce dominant fantasy players and they are the guys chosen in the first few rounds of your drafts.

 

These charts are based off all numbers accumulated so far during the 2017 season. As the season goes along these numbers grown in strength as more and more teams have exploited or struggled against the opposing team. The differential in fantasy points scored and allowed will have a strong correlation to which teams are truly the best in football as time passes, so as always, pay attention.

 


Which positions on each team are scoring the most fantasy football points thru 4 games played? 

 

Pyro Power Rankings - 2017 FF Points Scored Thru 4 Games


You can also use the points scored chart in selecting your streaming options as a plug and play option or as a bye week fill-in. Teams in GREEN are the best fantasy options, while teams that display in RED are underachieving to say the least. A few shrewd calls in bad matchups for you can be the difference between a win and a loss, and dramatically affect your positioning going into the playoffs.

 


Which defenses are letting up the most fantasy football points at each position thru 4 games played?

 

2017 FF Points Allowed Thru 4 Games - Pyro Power Rankings


The best way to use the points allowed chart to your advantage is to check out your players matchups for the week. When your guy is facing a RED unit against him then you might want to bump him to the bench this week and avoid the disappointment or temper your expectations, however this is best used with lower tier players, because as they say, play your studs. When looking at the points allowed chart, think of it as a stoplight GREEN means go (start 'em), and RED means stop (sit 'em). You can also use the points allowed chart to find tasty matchups for your bye week fill-ins, or to get a jump on the competition in finding the next big in season pick up.

 

In the points allowed chart, colors and ranks are flipped. Every week Pyromaniac will highlight the five best matchups in GREEN meaning these are the defenses you want to target. Pyro will also highlight in RED the toughest matchups, which typically means they are worth avoiding. Target those green matchups when streaming and avoid the red.

 


Who's the best at scoring fantasy football points & allow the least against them thru 4 games played?

 

Pyro Power Rankings 2017 FF Point Differential thru 3 games


While the points scored and the points allowed chart are the most important to your team on a weekly basis, I find it important to look at the differential for each team as it is a pretty good indicator of team strength overall as the first ten teams in differential all made the playoffs in previous seasons. You can use this in the fantasy playoffs as an indicator of whether a team might rest it’s starters or whether they will be battling another playoff caliber team in a battle for seeding. It is also an interesting way to look at which team is the best in the NFL and is a valuable tool for picking the winners amongst your friends.

 

When I first suggested the idea of a fantasy football power rankings it was based off of what we felt the strength of each team was in terms of position groups (i.e. the Patriots wide receiving group) and their rank amongst the league. It is know a staple for examining matchups each week, knowing how important it is to look at each side of the coin and how to plug and play against the best matchups. No matter how you use Pyro’s Fantasy Football Power Rankings, it is a valuable asset in your weekly arsenal. Hopefully this has given you some new ideas in how to use our power rankings to further dominate your competition, Pyro style.
