Chris Thompson

Washington Redskins

Thompson Flashes


Thompson only had three carries, but two of them went for scores, including a 61-yard scamper. He finished with six touches for 106 yards and two scores. Rob Kelley could miss time with the injury and Thompson is lightening in a bottle.

Fantasy Goo: Thompson is the back to own in PPR leagues, his floor is solid with the passing downs work and he will probably average five carries a game if Kelley (ribs) is out.

Chris Carson

Seattle Seahawks

Seattle Backfield Jumble


Carson was the man at running back for the Seahawks, running the ball 20 times for 93 yards, and he caught one pass for 7 yards to give him 100 total yards on the day. Lacy is a non-factor, and Rawls does not look like he will be able to keep Carson from getting the Lion share of carries going forward.

Fantasy Goo: Carson will probably be the number one waiver add in your league, and if you have the number one pick you NEED to add Carson now.

D'Onta Foreman

Houston Texans

The Foreman Is On The Job


The Texans want to get Foreman more involved in the offense, and this week he had 12 carries for 40 yards. He is going to be in a 60/40 split with Lamar Miller, but there is upside if Miller goes down. His workload should only increase as the season moves along.

Fantasy Goo: If he’s still available, if you have space on your roster, and if you can wait a few weeks for him to take even more of the role, then this is your guy to grab. Foreman could emerge as the Texans primary back by the end of the year.

Rashard Higgins

Cleveland Browns

They Call Him "Hollywood"


Browns placed WR Corey Coleman on injured reserve with a broken hand. Coleman underwent surgery on his broken right hand Monday. Higgins played 54-of-71 snaps against the Ravens, 12 more than Kenny Britt. He also turned 11 targets into seven catches for 95 yards. He was just promoted off the practice squad on Saturday, so he could be a one hit wonder.

Fantasy Goo: Normally I would say to just put him on your watch list, but he could emerge into what we thought Kenny Britt would be. Britt is playing like he doesn’t give a crap right now, which is giving Higgins opportunity and with Coleman out for at least eight weeks there might not be anyone else to throw to.

Will Fuller

Houston Texans

Strong Out, Fuller In


Will Fuller (collarbone) returned to practice on Monday. It's a potential sign Fuller could return for Week 3. The Houston Chronicle reported in early August that Fuller would likely miss "2-3 months," but Fuller is an elite athlete in optimal condition, and he is capable of beating a lengthy timetable like that. The Texans also placed WR Jaelen Strong on waivers and the Jaguars have claimed him.

Fantasy Goo: It’s too bad the Texans still don’t have a QB. Fuller could add a valuable weapon for Watson, but I don’t see Watson being a productive QB that can maintain two WR’s with weekly fantasy value. Keep Fuller on the watch list just in case Watson proves he can produce or they shift to a free agent QB.

A.J. Green

Cincinnati Bengals

Green looking forward to Green Bay


A.J. Green has struggled to get going this season, with 10 receptions for 141 yards and no touchdowns. This week he faces a Packers defense that could be without Mike Daniels and Ahmad Brooks. Julio Jones had 108 yards against the Packers last week, and without the pass rush of Daniels Green should be able to make more plays downfield this week. The Bengals are looking for their first touchdown of the season, and Dalton wants it to be a passing touchdown to A.J.

Le'Veon Bell

Pittsburgh Steelers

Bell looking for a breakthrough against the Bears


Le'Veon has only totaled 138 yards with no scores through the first two weeks. Owners should be feeling good about his matchup this week against the Bears. Chicago is already without LB Jerrell Freeman, and last week lost his replacement Nick Kwiatkowski. The Bears are a mess and Bell should be able to exploit those weaknesses for big gains this week.

Carolina Panthers

Carolina In My Mind


Implied Team Totals: Panthers 25, Bills 18
Cam looked rusty last week, he was literally shaking his arm after passes like there was rust in his shoulder joint. Christian McCaffrey out-snapped Jonathan Stewart 70% to 43% in Week 1, but Stewart out-touched McCaffrey 20 to 18, and Stewart scored the backfield’s lone TD on a red-zone reception where McCaffrey served as a decoy. As Carolina is favored by a touchdown at home, this sets up as another positive-script game where Stewart can log a similar if not superior workload to his dynamic rookie counterpart, giving both Panthers backs RB2/flex appeal. I don’t like any of the receivers, Benjamin is only ranked within the startable range because of the implied opportunity and what should be a prime match-up.

Buffalo Bills

Buffalo @ Carolina


Implied Team Totals: Panthers 25, Bills 18
Tyrod is a solid sit for me on the road against a strong Carolina defense that silenced the 49ers on the road last week. McCoy will get 25 or so carries so I’m starting him in season-long, but his upside is capped so he’s a fade in DFS this week. Charles Clay led Buffalo in targets and caught his eighth TD in 29 games as a Bill. Last year’s Panthers allowed the league’s second-most fantasy points to tight ends, a position to which their Cover-3 zone can be vulnerable.

New England Patriots

New England @ New Orleans


Implied Team Totals: Patriots 31, Saints 25
Last year the Saints allowed the second-most points (454) and the most passing yards (4380), the Superdome is now known as football’s version of Coors Field for its elevation of offensive output. My top DFS plays are Brady, of course, Cooks in a revenge game, Gronk if you are ok with paying up at TE, and the way to get Gronk in a DK line-up is to play James White at RB2 or flex. White is cheap, and played the most snaps of the RB’s last week, he could have around 5 receptions for around 35-50yds and cross your fingers for a TD.

New Orleans Saints

New Orleans Hosting New England


Implied Team Totals: Patriots 31, Saints 25
The Saints, and Brees are a different animal at home than the road. Alex Smith shredded the Pats last week and even on short rest (6 days, compared to NE’s 10 days) Brees should see similar numbers. I feel good about starting Michael Thomas or Fleener, they should see the bulk of red-zone targets. The RB situation is in flux so the only RB I’m considering is Alvin Kamara, he’s obviously not a cash game play, but at $3500 he could pay-off in a big way.

Jacksonville Jaguars

The Jaguars have alot to do to bounce back to fantasy relevance in week 2


With Blake Bortles playing the role as "game manager" it certainly puts a cap on the Jags offense as a whole,sure Leonard Fournette can be counted on to get the Lions share of work but at the cost of the passing game especially after losing AR15 who is left to count on ?
Blake threw for a meager 125 and a TD in week one's victory over Houston,but went 11 for 21 pass attempts. (21 attempts yoikes)
It seems the lack of faith in Bortles has everyone wondering if you can even start any pass catcher on this team.
The improvement of the defense should help but if history tells us anything it is that the Jags will be playing from behind and will be forced to throw. So again who's catching the ball in Jacksonville week 2?

Allen Hurns caught 3 out of 4 targets for 42 yards in the Jaguars' season opener and should be the one to take on the WR1 duties. He did show some fantasy value two years ago and is most likely to be the receiver with the most upside and is currently WR 49 on pyro rankings.

Marqise Lee was off the marq week 1 and had 4 balls thrown his way and failed to haul in a single catch, but he is in line to be the WR2. Maybe the increased workload and motivation of being more involved in the game plan will be the trick for Lee who's is WR 50 on pyro rankings.

Marcedes Lewis the tight-end failed to make a single reception of his two targets vs.the Texans. He could be called on to make up some of the loss of ARob but I'm not holding my breath. He only had 169 yards and a single touchdown all of last season Lewis is currently holding down TE 47 on the current pyro rankings.

Fantasy Goo: So if your like me the approach in Jacksonville is wait and see what happens Sunday vs Tennessee and hopefully we get the answers we are looking for by end of week three.

Green Bay Packers

Packers @ Falcons


Ty Montgomery played 75 of82 snaps, he’s playing a team that struggles to cover RBs and there’s a high over under. After allowing a league-high 14.5 receiving points per game to opposing backfields in 2016, Atlanta allowed a Week 1 high 23.1 points to the Chicago backfield receiving. Aaron Rodgers has thrown 10 touchdowns with at least three in each game and averaged 29.3 points per game. Randall Cobb accounted for 32 percent of the Green Bay targets Week 1.

Fantasy Goo: Start everyone mentioned above and Jordy. I guess Adams and Bennett are solid plays too, but I usually stay away from them in general, very TD dependent. This should be a shoot-out in Atlanta’s new stadium, and I expect Ty Montgomery to have the best value at $5800 on DK.

Akeem Hunt

Houston Texans

Double Hunt in KC


“Chiefs are releasing CJ Spiller again, per sources. This makes room on the 53 for RB Akeem Hunt, who can contribute on lots of special teams.”

Fantasy: Ok, this means absolutely nothing, but if you have that guy in your league that keeps sending annoying trades, you should pick up Akeem and send the guy an offer when you know he’s been drinking. All he’ll see is Hunt KC, if you make the right offer. Ask for someone good, but don’t get greedy.

Michael Crabtree

Oakland Raiders

Crabtree is the WR1 on Oakland yet again


Crabtree is the WR1a for the Raiders against a strong Jets defense in Oakland, but it’s the first home game of the year and they’ve already shown the ability to put up points. This game should end in a blowout which means more red-zone targets for Crabby, something that he didn’t see in Week 1. Look for another seven reception performance for around 100 yards and a touchdown.

Derek Carr

Oakland Raiders

Great matchup this week


Carr was very efficient against the Titans on the road but will break out in a major way at home against the withering Jets defense. Tyrod Taylor posted 18.7 FF points in Week 1 against NYJ and Carr has better weapons at his disposal. Carr could easily be the top QB this week and will continue to be the steal of the draft.

Amari Cooper

Oakland Raiders

Cooper scooper


Cooper had the big fantasy day with his 62 yards and a touchdown, but he had only five receptions on 13 targets! Something to be concerned about, but Amari also worked through a small knee injury. Use the eye-test in Week 2 to see if his efficiency improves, otherwise, Crabtree might re-take the WR1 spot on this powerful offense.

Emmanuel Sanders

Denver Broncos

2 inches short of explosion


Sanders was so close to a massive fantasy day but was overthrown by inches on two red-zone targets on Monday night. Sanders and Demaryius will mimic each other’s stat lines through the season, but ‘Manny usually sees the softer coverage. Over the course of the season, Demaryius will see a larger total FF point sum, but itll be Sanders that wins you the week.

Demaryius Thomas

Denver Broncos

Solid WR2 in all formats


Thomas will continue to be a solid WR2 especially in PPR leagues. Dallas is a similar test to the Chargers in defending receivers, so temper expectations for a breakout week, but you can definitely expect 6-8 receptions for just under 100 yards.

C.J. Anderson

Denver Broncos

Anderson has Charles breathing down his neck...


Anderson rushed 20 times for 81 yards but was often replaced near the goal line and in long yardage situations. It was odd to see and may be a legitimate concern with Jamaal Charles in the back-up role. All CJ owners should think about stashing Charles on the bench. Dallas only allowed 9.6 and 3.5 FF points to Giant RBs so we should expect a similar output in Week 2, making CJ a flex candidate.

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.

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.
