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.

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.

Mike Evans

Tampa Bay Buccaneers

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!

Stagg Party like's LeSean McCoy a lot this week in DFS

The Daily Dos & Don'ts - Week 15 DFS Advice (2016)

Posted by d-Rx on 12/16/16

Stagg Party's Week 15 DFS Picks

 


Pillar: LeSean McCoy - DraftKings - $8,900 / FanDuel - $9,000   [CLE@BUF]

LeSean McCoy is coming off another nice rushing performance as he was able to get loose against the Pittsburgh Steelers. This week he gets the Cleveland Browns who are allowing over 160 yards from scrimmage to running backs per game. In a game that is expected to snow, McCoy could be in line for another big workload in which he should have plenty of chances to exploit the Cleveland defense. Mike Gillislee could be in line for a vulture touchdown or two, McCoy will still have a chance to take it to the house from anywhere on the field. McCoy also provides a small cost savings over the cream of the crop RBs Le’Veon Bell and David Johnson. The Bills score more often when at home, and home favorite running backs are proven to score more fantasy points. It might be going back to the well, but hey, if it makes you money, why stop?

 

Mid Priced Core Piece: Carlos Hyde - DraftKings - $5,900 / FanDuel - $7,000 [SF@ATL]

Carlos Hyde is coming off of the most productive rushing game of his career. Hyde will also be in a great spot again this week taking on the Atlanta Falcons who are allowing the second most fantasy points to opposing running backs. Also in a week of blistering cold, Hyde will get the comfy confines of the Georgia Dome. While the Falcons Defense was great as a fantasy play last season, they did allow Todd Gurley to have a top-12 fantasy week. The Falcons have also allowed the most receptions to opposing running backs, and Hyde has proven fairly adequate at catching the ball this season. Over the last five weeks, the Falcons have continued that trend and given up at least 15 fantasy points to each of the last four main runners they have faced. While it may look like Atlanta could get out to a big lead and take Hyde of the gameplan, the 49ers always seem to mix in some run plays no matter the score.

 

Low Cost Dart Throw: Ty Montgomery - DraftKings - $4,800 / FanDuel - $5,000 [GB@CHI]

Ty Montgomery is coming off another nice week where he scored his first rushing touchdown of the season. Montgomery looks primed for another big workload this week as the Bears are stout against the run, and Aaron Rodgers threw it over 50 times the last time these two teams matched up. While I am not expecting another solid rushing performance I think Montgomery will be very involved as a receiver out of the backfield. While I prefer playing him at WR and in full PPR, there is also some value on FanDuel. Montgomery could also see some carries late in the game as the Packers should try and get up early in this cold weather game.

 

Fade: Antonio Brown - DraftKings - $8,400 / FanDuel - $8,500   [PIT@CIN]

Antonio Brown is coming off a solid game in the snow in Buffalo, but nothing to write home about. This week he looks to be in a similar spot as the Bengals are tough against wide receivers but do give it up to running backs, which could mean this is another Le’Veon Bell week after the explosion last week. Brown suffers mightily from Big Ben’s home/road splits, and in a freezing cold game, the passing game usually suffers in favor of the run game. Brown is awesome, but I am passing him up in DFS this week.

 

Stack of the Week: LeSean McCoy and Buffalo Bills Defense [CLE@BUF]



 

Houdini's Week 15 DFS Picks

  

Pillar: Devonta Freeman – DraftKings $6,700 / FanDuel $7,700 [ATL vs. SF]

Freeman is coming off a horrible performance against the Rams where he only managed 18 total yards. He will be facing another west coast team in the 49ers, but he should be able to fair much better in this matchup. San Francisco allows a league leading 27.9 fantasy points to running backs, and Freeman is going to be a dual threat monster this week, especially with Julio Jones out. His poor performance last week dropped his price, and makes him a perfect play this week.

 

Mid Priced Core Piece: Trevor Siemian – DraftKings $5,200 / FanDuel $6,600 [DEN vs. NE]

Trevor Sieman is a great mid priced sleeper this week against the Patriots. The Broncos currently have no semblance of a running game, and that has meant a lot of passing attempts for Siemian. In his last four games he has averaged 40.5 pass attempts for 311 passing yards with eight touchdowns, three interceptions, while adding 89 rushing yards. The Patriots are on a short week after playing on Monday Night Football, and will also have to deal with the altitude. Save your money on quarterback so you spend up at other positions this week.

 

Low Cost Dart Throw: J.J. Nelson – DraftKings $3,900 / FanDuel $5,000 [ARI vs. NO]

The Cardinals cut Michael Floyd after being arrested for a DUI, and that is going to clear the path for J.J. Nelson to make a much bigger fantasy impact the next two weeks. He gets the Saints at home this week, and while they are a better defense than they were last season, they can still be victimized by speed, which Nelson has. He should see at least five targets this week, and those will likely be downfield throws making him a boom candidate for no cost.

 

Fade: Aaron Rodgers – DraftKings $7,100 / FanDuel $8,500 [GB@CHI]

Rodgers has been on fire, and he torched the Bears for 326 yards and three touchdowns in their last meeting, but I am fading on him big time this week. The weather on Sunday could be the coldest game in the history of Soldier Field. The high is expected to be three degrees, with a low of negative thirteen. The chances that there will be a lot of throwing and yards is not high by my estimation, as gripping the ball and catching it will be very difficult in this game.

 

Stack of the Week: David Johnson and J.J. Nelson [ARI vs. NO] 



 

ØC's Week 15 DFS Picks

           

Pillar:  WR, Jordy Nelson - DraftKings $7,300 / FanDuel $7,700   [GB@CHI]

Jordy has been on a tear the last seven weeks of the season, averaging 22 FF points in PPR over that span. He’s collected seven touchdowns and nearly 600 yards receiving. Rodgers and Jordy have hit their stride just in time for the fantasy playoffs, and an away game in nearly sub-zero temperatures will do nothing to hamper this offense. The Bears have a solid secondary but allow over 21 points per game, making them 18th best in that category. There will be plenty of scoring in this divisional contest and without a rushing attack; the Packers will spearhead the offense through the air. Play Jordy will high confidence this week no matter what the price.

 

Sleeper:  QB, Tyrod Taylor - DraftKings $5,700 / FanDuel $7,600    [CLE@BUF]

Any player facing off against the Browns deserves no real explanation as to why you should start them. Cleveland is much better at defending the pass, but that has never been Tyrod’s strength. Taylor has two rushing touchdowns in the last two weeks and should have an easy path to a third in potentially shoddy weather. There have also been rumors of Taylor finding the bench unless he can improve in this offense. Both he and head Coach Rex Ryan are on thin ice and a failure to produce against the worst team in the league will mean curtains on their future. Look for Tyrod to throw for 200 and rush for 100 more with 2-3 total touchdowns. You could do a lot worse with more expensive QB options.

 

Low Cost Dart Throw:  Rishard Matthews - DraftKings $4,600 / FanDuel $5,800   [TEN@KC]

Kansas City has a “bend but don't break” attitude on defense, allowing almost 375 total yards per game to opposing offenses, yet they rank 8th in points allowed per game. Taking out last week’s match-up against the best secondary in football, Rishard has five touchdowns in five games and averages 70 yards receiving in each. Matthews is Mariota’s favorite target and shouldn’t have a problem getting open in Kansas City, as long as the O-Line allows Mariota some time to look downfield. The Titans are scrapping for their playoff lives and no offensive strategy is off the table. Emmanuel Sanders was the last WR to go off back in Week 12 for over 25 FF points, and Rishard has the talent to put up similar numbers. He is a great, cheap option this week. 

 

Fade:   WR, TY Hilton - DraftKings $7,200 / FanDuel $7,300   [ARI@MIA]

Hilton has been a beast of late; however, he is dealing with a back injury and will face a Minnesota secondary ranked third in passing yards allowed and second in total yards allowed. To expect another 25 FF point performance is asinine, especially on the road. While I would never sit TY in season long leagues, he’s just too expensive in such a violent match-up. Golden Tate has the highest FF point performance against the Vikings this season, and it was due to a long TD catch in overtime. No reason to waste your money on TY this week.  

 

Stack of the Week: Aaron Rodgers and Jordy Nelson 

 


 

PyromaniacMo’s Week 15 DFS Picks

 

Pillar: LeSean McCoy - DraftKings - $8,900 / FanDuel - $9,000 [CLE@BUF]

Buffalo is home to Cleveland. This game carries the second highest spread of the week, in favor of the Bills. That means a positive game script, in other words, lots of running for the Bills, who already run the ball nearly 50% of the time, third most of all the league’s teams. The Browns D is giving up the second most rushing yards per game and will possibly be without starting DT, Jamie Meder, who has failed to practice Wed and Thur. Finally, McCoy has racked up ten games this season with at least 100 all-pyrpose yards and/or a TD.

 


Mid Priced Core Piece: Devonta Freeman- DraftKings - $6,700 / FanDuel - $7,700 [SF@ATL]

With Julio out, the pie should grow for everyone, and this week, the pie is extraordinarily large. In fact, Atlanta has the highest implied team total of the week, 32.5. That should come easy against the 49’ers who are allowing a league high 4.9 yards per carry, and a league high total rushing yards per game. According to Pyro’s own Positional Points Against chart, versus #1 RBs, the 49’ers allow 114 yards per game, by far the most in the NFL.  In fact, they have allowed a RB TD in the last 11 games straight. This game also carries the highest spread of the week, standing in the double-digits. Now, if you toss out last week’s decimation of the Rams where they beat them 42-14 and the game script was so out-of whack, there has been four other instances where the Falcons have won by more than a TD. In those four games, Freeman is averaging 18.7 Draft Kings points. With that track record, and the stench coming off the opposing D, this should be a recipe for fantasy success in Week 15.

 

Low Cost Dart Throw: Vikings - DraftKings - $3,500 / FanDuel - $4,500 [IND@MIN]

I am guessing most readers all ready know that Kenneth Farrow is only $4,400 on Draft Kings. That right there is a deal. But rarely do we talk defenses. Let’s face it, if you do not hit on your defense, then you certainly are not going to bring home the coin, at least not in tournament plays. Of course, everyone is aware of the Vikings D. They started the season on a historic pace. They hit a rough patch a few weeks ago, but still are amongst the leaders defensively in most categories. This week, they are home to the Colts. Indy has allowed the 2nd most QB hits. That is a gateway to fumbles, sacks, INTs, or just bad decisions. That is exactly what defenses try to capitalize on. The biggest reason to play the Vikings, surprisingly, is not the price; The Vikings are the 5th most expensive on Draft Kings and the 11th most on Fan Duel. The best reason to play Minnesota against Indianapolis is the latter’s offensive line injuries. Indy will be down three starting offensive linemen in Week 15. Look for the Vikings to exploit that all day long.

 

Fade:  Julian Edelman - DraftKings - $6,400 / FanDuel - $6,100 [NE@DEN]

Mile High is always a tough place to play. Add to that the fact you have two of the league’s best corners on your tail. According to Pro Football Focus, when grading corner backs in coverage, the Broncos indeed have the top two. Aqib Talib comes in at number one and his partner, chris Harris, is number two. That is a lethal duo, and certainly one to avoid in fantasy. When adjusting for schedule, Denver comes in at number one against opposing QBs and opposing WRs in both standard and PPR scoring.
