Tom Brady

New England Patriots

Tom Still Terrific?


Tom Brady was first listed on the team's injury report with an Achilles injury heading in to Week 11.
Weeks 1-10: 21.2 fantasy points per game, 110.9 passer rating
Weeks 11-17: 14.2 fantasy points per game, 87.3 passer rating

Fantasy Goo: This should line up for a good week for Brady, Tennessee is 8th in fantasy points allowed to RB’s, but just below average against QB’s. The Patriots are 13 point favorites on Saturday Night, if Brady doesn’t do it at home in prime-time then something is wrong.

Alvin Kamara

New Orleans Saints

Primary Role Shifting


Saints have run 5 times at/inside opponent's 5-yard line over last 4 weeks (including playoffs):
Alvin Kamara 3 carries, Zach Line 1, Mark Ingram 1. Kamara was in on all 3 Saints run plays at/inside 5 vs. Panthers last week, including Line's 1-yard TD run.

Fantasy Goo: If you’re trying to decide between Kamara and Ingram for the playoff run, Kamara looks to be the much better play.

Jay Ajayi

Philadelphia Eagles

It's A Trap


Jay Ajayi (knee) is practicing in full for the Divisional Round.

Fantasy Goo: Atlanta is 5th in fantasy points allowed to RB’s this year and they are more susceptible to pass-catching backs. Todd Gurley rushed 14 times for 101 yards in the Rams' Wild Card loss to the Falcons, adding four receptions for 10 additional yards. Ajayi might have been drafted before Gurley this year, but that was clearly a mistake. Ajayi has talent, but he’s far from a good option this week.

Chris Hogan

New England Patriots

Back in Action


Chris Hogan (shoulder) is expected to return for Saturday's Divisional Round game against the Titans.

Fantasy Goo: He’s going to take a couple of weeks to get in tune with the offense, I’m looking to save him until the Super Bowl if you’re in one of those one and done fantasy playoff tournaments.

Drew Brees

New Orleans Saints

Strength vs Strength


Saints RBs led NFL during regular season in receptions (9.0) and receiving yards (77.8) per game.
Vikings held opposing RBs to fewest yards per target (4.2) and 3rd-fewest yards per game (30.6).

Fantasy Goo: The Vikings have been absolutely sick in all aspects on defense this year. If the Saints are going to pull this one out it sounds like it’s going to have to be a Brees week, I’m not so sure he’s going to be the guy you want to start on the road this week.

LeSean McCoy

Buffalo Bills

Not The Real McCoy


LeSean McCoy said if he plays Sunday, "I want to be able to cut well enough to where I don't have a lot of pain cutting. I just want to be close, or the best as far as 100 percent as I can get. The type of game like this, you got to lay it all on the line.”

Fantasy Goo: McCoy is a poor play against the Jags this week. The Jags strength on defense is against the pass (#1 in FP allowed), but they are still strong against the rush (11th). I’m not taking any Bills on fantasy playoff squads or in DFS this week.

Derrick Henry

Tennessee Titans

Arrow Pointing Down


DeMarco Murray (knee) didn't practice again Thursday. Derrick Henry show ready to go.

Fantasy Goo: The way to attack KC is through the air, they rank 9th in fantasy points allowed to RB’s. They will most likely be in negative game script. KC hasn’t allowed any team to score over 20 points in Arrowhead all year.

Julio Jones

Atlanta Falcons

No Fly Zone


Julio Jones finished 11th in NFL in red-zone targets but caught only 5 of 19. He finished 4th in targets inside 10 but only caught 4 of 11.

Fantasy Goo: The Rams have a strong pass defense, especially against outside receivers, but are second worst in fantasy points allowed to RB’s. Freeman and Coleman are the only Falcons I am considering this week.

Kenny Golladay

Detroit Lions

Under the Radar


In the first game with TJ Jones (shoulder) on IR last week, Kenny Golladay played 95% of snaps and led DET WRs with 8 targets.

Fantasy Goo: Marvin Jones has a history of shredding the Packers defense and is a solid play at $6500 on DK, but Golladay is half the price ($3300) and will probably see a similar number of targets. If Detroit had something to play for I’d be stacking the heck out of this game, but I still think it’s smart to have one of these guys in the line-up this week.

Patrick Mahomes

Kansas City Chiefs

Rookie Debut


Patrick Mahomes was 2nd in PFF’s QB Rating when kept clean in preseason. He rushed for 744 yards, 22 TDs in his last two years at Texas Tech. Denver has allowed multiple passing TDs to six-straight QBs not named Petty or Brissett.

Fantasy Goo: The rookie was supposed to take over for Alex Smith much earlier this season, but Smith and the Chief’s came out firing on all cylinders and kept the rookie on the bench. Mahomes will get his chance this week as Smith gets a week off before the playoffs. Denver may be packing it in, but they still have one of the best defenses and I expect they will play more inspired this week against a division rival.

Wayne Gallman

New York Giants

Last Man Standing


Giants will be without Shepard (neck), Engram (ribs), and King (concussion) vs. WAS. Wayne Gallman has 9, 7, 8 target counts in last three weeks.

Fantasy Goo: Washington ranks 24th in fantasy points allowed to RB’s and Gallman is $4200 on DK. Feels like a great way to save and pay up at other positions.

Alex Collins

Baltimore Ravens

Burfict Situation


Bengals LB Vontaze Burfict ruled out for game Sunday at Baltimore because of shoulder injury.

Fantasy Goo: Collins becomes a solid RB1 this week. Cincinnati’s run defense is a sieve with Burfict out.

Akeem Hunt

Houston Texans

Akeem No Dream


Charcandrick West is out Sunday vs Denver with an illness. Akeem Hunt and Kareem Hunt only RBs on active roster for KC. It would be a surprise to see Kareem play much. That means a ton of Akeem Hunt and likely some De'Anthony Thomas on passing downs.

Fantasy Goo: Akeem is min price ($3000) on DK so the definition of a free-square, but there’s a reason he’s bounced around the NFL and never earned a starting role. Denver is 5th in fantasy points allowed to RB’s, I’m not rostering Akeem when there are so many other options this week.

DeAndre Hopkins

Houston Texans

Milestone Not Worth The Risk


Bill O'Brien on DeAndre Hopkins' status: 'Probably won't know up until game time'. Typically, we might classify this as coach-speak, but Hopkins has never missed a game, and is four catches away from 100 for the season. He's probably pushing hard to play.

Fantasy Goo: This is an awesome match-up for the Houston WR’s going against a very weak Indy pass defense, but there is really no reason for Hopkins to play, especially with the calf injury. At $8400 on DK he’s just way too pricey given this news. A sneaky start might be Will Fuller at $4300, he has 5 targets in each of the past three games and is coming off some difficult match-ups. Earlier in the season he was a superstar with Watson throwing the ball, but he has always had the big play in his arsenal no matter who the QB is.

Dion Lewis

New England Patriots

Vultures Are Always Flying


James White (ankle) remained limited at Thursday's practice. White was absent for last week's win over Buffalo but should be out there against the Jets in Week 17. He ranks eighth among running backs with 56 catches this year.

Fantasy Goo: Lewis dominated last week with White and Burkhead out, even though Gillislee vultured a TD. I would imagine that White playing will take away the five receptions Lewis had last week and the Jets actually have a better rush defense than the Pats week 16 opponent (Buf). The Pats will be looking to lock-up home field advantage and won’t be resting their starters, but they will probably be looking to get everyone some work as they prep for the playoffs. Gillislee appears to be nursing a hammy and is not expected to play, but let’s not forget how White performed last year in the Super Bowl.

Pittsburgh Steelers

Stars Sitting


The Steelers Marcus Gilbert tells reporter Tim Benz that the Steelers won't play Ben Roethlisberger or Le'Veon Bell in finale vs. Cleveland. Landry Jones will be under center for Pittsburgh and Fitzgerald Toussaint and Stevan Ridley will form a thoroughly underwhelming RB committee against the Browns.

Fantasy Goo: Underwhelming is an understatement for these two backs, a highly respected fantasy website hasn’t even updated the news on these two since the pre-season and doesn’t even recognize them as being on the team. The one player of note in this is Martavis Bryant, The Alien averages over 17 ppr points per game with Landry at the helm as opposed to 8.4 ppg with other QB’s. He also has 5 TD’s in 5 home games with Landry. Granted most of this production comes from 2015 when they worked together often in the preseason, but Bryant could be a very sneaky GPP play this week.

Jacksonville Jaguars

Play To Win The Game


Despite already being locked into the AFC's No. 3 seed, Jaguars coach Doug Marrone has no plans to rest starters in Sunday's game against the Titans. "Make no mistake about it, just so there is not a lot of talk during the week: When the players come in (Wednesday), we are talking about how we are going to play to win and do everything we possibly can to win this game, period," Marrone said. "I am not even thinking about what happens beyond that, and that is the way we are going to go about our business this week."

Fantasy Goo: I think it’s crazy of him to do, but I’m sure he has Tom Coughlin in his ear feeding him that old-school philosophy. Looks like Bortles, Fournette, Westbrook and Cole will be safe plays against a Titan’s team hoping to hold on to the sixth seed in the AFC.

Los Angeles Rams

Resting Starters


McVay hints that there will be Rams starters “who won’t play at all” on Sunday. The Rams are already locked into either the No. 3 or 4 seed in the NFC and will host a Wild Card round playoff game.

Fantasy Goo: Gurley, Goff, Woods, all sitting this week? That’s going to destroy so many hopes and dreams for teams that rode Gurley all year.

DeMarco Murray

Tennessee Titans

Grind It Out


Mike Mularkey said he's not ruling DeMarco Murray out just yet. He's day-to-day. The Titans are holding out hope to have him in limited role.

Fantasy Goo: They are really grinding him into the dirt if they play him this week. I didn’t see the injury, but it sounded pretty ugly from sources in the know. Keep away from him in whatever format you are playing this week, I’m giving Derick Henry a solid upgrade as the Titans are trying to hold on to the final playoff spot in the AFC.

Philadelphia Eagles

All Locked Up


Pederson on playing Foles vs. Cowboys: “I’ve got to get him as many reps as he can and then be smart about it. Obviously, we have a lot of football left. Our season is really just beginning, quite honestly. We’ll be smart.”

Fantasy Goo: This is why you don’t play a championship game in week 17. I’m staying away from the Eagles regular starters, pretty much across the board, as they have a first round bye all locked up. Guys like Blount, Clement, and Nelson Agholor might have some DFS appeal, but we have to get closer to Sunday to see what they plan on doing.

Jeremy Hill could be a nice play in DFS for Week 14 of the 2016 NFL season

The Daily Dos & Don'ts - Week 14 DFS Advice (2016)

Stagg Party's Week 14 DFS Picks

 

 

Pillar: LeSean McCoy - DraftKings - $8,200 / FanDuel - $8,300   [PIT@BUF]

LeSean McCoy is coming off a big rushing day in his dismantling of the Oakland Raiders last week before his team blew it up for him. McCoy was vultured by Mike Gillislee a few times keeping him from putting up a huge score. Rex Ryan has said that Gillislee will remain involved near the goalline but I believe McCoy will still have his shots at the endzone. McCoy has a nice matchup at home against the Pittsburgh Steelers who have given up some huge performances to opposing running backs this season. In PPR Leagues, the Steelers have given up 17 or more fantasy points six different times, including huge games to Jay Ajayi, LeGarrette Blount, and Ezekiel Elliott. McCoy is a lock for a big workload, including some targets in addition to his carries. People could also move away from him if they think he is losing goalline carries, potentially making him lower owned then the talent and the spot suggest.

 

Mid Priced Core Piece: Jeremy Hill - DraftKings - $5,800 / FanDuel - $6,900 [CIN@CLE]

Jeremy Hill is coming off of three high workload games in which he has seen at least 18 touches in each. Without Gio in the last two weeks, Hill is averaging 13 DraftKings points and now gets the Cleveland Browns who he demolished for 27 points on just 11 touches. The Browns allow the third most fantasy points to opposing running backs and are allowing the second most rushing yards. Hill, for his price provides a big fantasy option. The Browns have allowed 13 different running backs over 11 fantasy points this season, so even though Hill has been inefficient he possesses a nice floor this week in addition to a monster ceiling.

 

Low Cost Dart Throw: Cameron Brate - DraftKings - $4,100 / FanDuel - $5,600 [NO@TB]

Cameron Brate is like Hansel, he’s so hot right now. Brate is the number six tight end on the season, and is averaging 13.5 fantasy points in PPR over the last six games. With Adam Humphries potentially out, Brate could be in line for even more targets. New Orleans presents a fairly average matchup for opposing tight ends, but we have seen them really struggle against the position in the past. Brate has seemingly taken over as the second option in this passing game and has a ton of value in the redzone.

 

Fade: Jordan Reed - DraftKings - $5,900 / FanDuel - $7,500   [WAS@PHI]

Jordan Reed is expected to be back from his shoulder injury as he has apparently regained full range of motion. Reed is one of the top-3 highest priced options at the tight end position and could disappoint for his high price tag. On the flip side, the Eagles are allowing the second fewest fantasy points to opposing tight ends and have allowed just four different tight ends over double-digit fantasy points this season with a high of 13.6 PPR points. Reed won't be in any of my lineups this week, despite his immense talent and obvious report with Kirk Cousins.

 

Stack of the Week: Jeremy Hill and Cincinnati Bengals Defense [CIN@CLE]



 

ØC's Week 14 DFS Picks

           


Pillar:  WR, Odell Beckham, JR - DraftKings $8,000 / FanDuel $8,500   [DAL@NYG]

Odell has two straight 20+ FF point performances which include 16 receptions, 196 yards, and two touchdowns. A relatively easy match-up without any other strong options on the Giants receiving corps looks to make for a great day against a division rival. Dallas allows the 29th most passing yards while boasting a stout rush defense, meaning it should be guns-a-blazin’ for the air attack. I see Odell of having a similar or better game that Evans and Brown plus he’s $500+ cheaper. Don’t over-think your pillar player in a format that awards receptions and 100+ yard games.

 

 

Sleeper:  QB, Trevor Siemian - DraftKings $5,100 / FanDuel $7,000    [DEN@TEN]

Despite Siemian’s foot injury, he should (and needs to be) back in the lineup for a Denver offense that struggled mightily with Paxton Lynch against Jacksonville. The Titans rank 26th and 20th in passing and total yards allowed respectively. Also, Kapri Bibbs is out for the season and there is still little faith in Devontae Booker to create a decent rushing attack. Siemian posted 32 FF points in Week 12 against a staunch KC defense with 368 yards and three touchdowns, proving he can be a QB1. Denver has a strong chance to re-capture the #1 spot in the AFC West but they can’t always rely on their defense to carry them. Look for Siemian to record around 20 FF points so you can spend more on the WRs.

 

 

Low Cost Dart Throw:  RB, Mike Gillislee - DraftKings $4,600 / FanDuel $5,300 [PIT@BUF]

For a dart throw, I like to go with cheap options with the most upside. Gillislee had only eight touches last week but put up 16.9 FF points. Offensive Coordinator Anthony Lynn mentioned Mike will continue to receive red-zone carries and he could easily have a repeat performance at home against a defense allowing the 6th most FF points to rushers. Just two weeks ago, Ezekiel Elliot posted nearly 40 FF points with over 200 total yards and three scores. I can see both Gillislee and McCoy racking up similar numbers, and that’s something you want to be a part of especially with this price.

 


Fade:   RB, Jay Ajayi - Draft Kings $5,900/ Fan Duel $7,200   [ARI@MIA]

Jay Ajayi hasn’t broken 20 FF points in four weeks and now faces an Arizona defense ranked first against running backs. I don’t care that they are at home because it’s clear Jay and the Dolphins have cooled off considerably. Jay will need to break a long TD run for him to be fantasy relevant and I just don’t see the Cardinals letting this happen. Spend your money elsewhere.  

 

Stack of the Week: LeSean McCoy and Mike Gillislee 

 


 

Houdini's Week 14 DFS Picks

 

 

Pillar: Russell Wilson – Draft Kings $6,600 / Fan Duel $7,900 [SEA@GB]

Russell Wilson is my pillar player this week, and with his pricing it is a no brainer. He will be facing a Packers defense that has given up 10 touchdowns over the past four weeks, and that was to this amazing list of quarterbacks: Marcus Mariota, Kirk Cousins, Carson Wentz and Brock Osweiler. Russell has been a disappointment over the last two weeks, but that is what is making him such a steal of a deal this week. Wilson has still been throwing for yardage, with at least 272 yards in four of his last five games, and I am all about Wilson in this matchup.

 


Mid Priced Core Piece: Emmanuel Sanders – Draft Kings $5,700 / Fan Duel $5,900 [DEN@TEN]

Sanders came back down to earth last week with just three receptions for 28 yards, one week after going off for 162 yards. This will be a bounce back week for Emmanuel as he will get Trevor Siemian back under center, which is an immediate boost, but even better is facing a Titans defense that allows 25.4 fantasy points per game to opposing receivers. Sanders is going to see a lot of targets, as he has had at least eight in every game but one this season, and he had six in that game. Love him at this price this week.

 


Low Cost Dart Throw: Kenneth Dixon – Draft Kings $3,800 / Fan Duel $5,000 [BAL@NE]

Dixon has looked good over his last few games, but he has been seeing Terrance West score all the touchdowns. That might changes this week as the Ravens face the Patriots. New England is good against running backs, holding them to 15.2 fantasy points per game, 6th best in the league, but their weakness is with receiving backs, which Dixon is. The Patriots allow the fourth most catches to running backs, and this is going to give Dixon an extra workload this week. The Ravens should also be playing from behind, so I also think he is on the field more than West in the second half.

 


Fade: Marcus Mariota – Draft Kings $6,200 / Fan Duel $7,900 [Ten vs. DEN]

This one is easy, as Mariota has a very tough draw in the Broncos this week. The Broncos are the best in the league against quarterbacks, limiting them to 12.3 fantasy points per week. The Broncos have only allowed two quarterbacks to throw for two touchdowns, and you can expect the gameplan to be a lot of running from the Titans. This has disaster written all over it, and his price is way to high for this matchup.

 


Stack of the Week: Jameis Winston, Mike Evans and Cameron Brate [TB vs. NO]

 

 

 

 

Mo’s Week 14 DFS Picks

 


Pillar: Odell Beckham- DraftKings - $8,000 / FanDuel - $8,500 [DAL@NYG]

I am playing high end WRs in my GPP games. I want to leverage all the owners paying top dollar to the RBs, which is generally a higher percentage. So, when looking at the WRs, OBJ is actually $900 less than Evans on Draft Kings. In the last five weeks, Eli leads all QBs with 14 TDs. In that stretch of time, you can only find one other WR that has been targeted more. Out of Eli’s 14 TD tosses in this stretch of time, Beckham claims five. OBJ is home and in the national spot light. You know it, I know it, and you can be damn sure he does. His play will elevate as a result. The game will see plenty of passing as the Giants are home under-dogs to a divisional rival no less. They dropped a game last week and will likely come out angry. On Draft Kings, there are only three other defenses giving up more fantasy goo to the WR position.

 


Mid Priced Core Piece: Jamison Crowder- DraftKings - $5,600 / FanDuel - $6,400 [WAS@PHI]

Crowder is a great cash play. The Washington WR has put up double-digit Draft Kings Points in all but one game this season, and that was back in early October. He is averaging over 19 Draft Kings points in his last six games. So at his price, his six weeks average is about three full points over 3X value for Week 14. He will face slot corner Malcolm Jenkins, who is giving up the second most fantasy points per route run.


So if Crowder is my cash, you guessed it, DeSeasn Jackson is my GPP play.  For starters, it is a revenge game as he faces his old team. While the Washington slot corner Malcolm Jenkins gives up the second most FF Points per route run to opposing WRs, believe it or not, Leodis McKelvin, who will be on Jackson, actually gives up the most. Jackson is $5,800 on FanDuel and just $5,200 on Draft Kings. I like stacking these Washington WRs with a cheap Cousins.

 


Low Cost Dart Throw: Ted Ginn - DraftKings - $4,000 / FanDuel - $4,700 [SD@CAR]

Believe it or not, I honestly think you could use Ginn in both GPP and cash. I know, just mentioning Ginn and cash might give you heart palpitations, but there is a much higher floor than you think. First of all, on the season, he only has nine fewer catches than teammate Kelvin Benjamin. Since Week 6, Ginn has received less than 6 targets on just one occasion. At $,4000 on Draft Kings, 12 points would represent 3X value. Well, Ginn has reached 15 DK points in each of the last three games. That is nearly 4X value. Not only is he home, a factor not to be overlooked, but the Panthers face the Chargers. Vegas has this matchup pegged as the 2nd highest scoring game of the week. While Casey Hayward should be on Benjamin, that leaves Trevor Williams for Ginn. Mr. Williams ranks as the 93rd best cover corner according to PFF. Finally, Ginn has been known to get a few extra yards running the ball; Ole’ Teddy has ten rush attempts on the season.

 


Fade:  Antonio Brown - DraftKings - $8,700 / FanDuel - $8,800 [PIT@BUF]

Antonio Brown – It is not that I think he will necessarily have a bad game, but for only $200 more, you can get Mike Evans who has a far better matchup. Or, you can drop down for $800 on draft Kings and nab OBJ. I would rather grab the Giant’s pass catcher, save the coin and likely get the same production, if not more. Buffalo has three tough corners. The forecast calls for snow in this one, it is Buffalo after all. Using Pyro’s Positional Points Against chart, there are only two defenses that allow fewer FF Points to opposing WR1s.

 


Stack of the Week:   Rivers / Gates – Gates is sitting on a three TD game, which will give him the all-time TD record outright. You just know, when that first one comes, and he is one away, they will make a concerted effort to deliver the title. Then, when you tied the record, might as well go for it outright.
