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.

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.

DFS Advice for FanDuel and DraftKings for the 2017 in Week 2

The Daily Dos & Don'ts - Week 2 DFS Advice (2017)

Stagg Party's Week 2 DFS


Pillar: WR, Julio Jones – FanDuel - $8,800 / DraftKings - $9,200

This week, Julio Jones is the guy I am pushing to get in all my lineups. He was held in check against the Bears, for really no fault of his own, as the Bears played a ton of cover-6 and bracket coverage trying to slow him down. The end result was lackluster four catches on five targets for 66 yards. Coaches have been quoted as saying we really should have just gotten Julio involved more last week, and I think they intend to do so. Last year, in games after he recorded 67 or fewer receiving yards Julio averaged 7.85 catches on 10 targets for 149.85 yards and a touchdown. In those matchups, Julio recorded a touchdown in all but one game, and 100 yards in all but one. Using FanDuel scoring, his average in those games would look like a cool 24.9 fantasy points. If you need another point after that, well Julio demolished the packers in the Conference Championship, putting up a stat line of 9 catches on 12 targets for 180 yards and two touchdowns. Yeah, I think I am rostering Julio this week, especially on FanDuel where his price is a bit cheaper.

 

Sleepers: RB, Mike Gillislee – FanDuel - $6,700 / DraftKings - $5,700

Mike Gillislee still sits as a strong value after his three-touchdown game against the Chiefs in Week 1. Gillislee has a locked in role as the Patriots goal-line running back, and as the game went on we saw him more and more involved with team getting first and second down work. While the Patriots are still likely to use all their backs, but Gillislee is in a role to succeed, with another 10 days of game planning for the Saints who are coming off a short week after playing on Monday night, Gillislee should be locked into lineups. The Pats are going to start using MG in different ways now that he is healthy and practicing with the team, and his ability to run from the shotgun formation will be a highlight sooner rather than later. We saw Dalvin Cook wear down the New Orleans defense on Monday Night, and I am expecting more of the same from Mike. Not being listed on the injury report is also a sign that he is healthy, as Bill would probably list his wife on there if he could. Gillislee also faced 8+ men in the box on over 50% of his carries, while the Saints went with a heavy box just 40% of the time against Dalvin Cook.

 

Low-Cost Dart Throw: TE, Kyle Rudolph – FanDuel - $5,500 / Draftkings - $4,200

Rudolph is a nice low cost option this week against the Steelers, instead of paying up for the receivers, Rudolph is a low cost option to get a piece of this hot Vikings offense, and a preferred play in the redzone. Rudolph runs a variety of routes and is a reliable quick threat, which could come in handy against the blitz crazy Pittsburgh, or Blitzberg if you will. Rudolph’s biggest upside however comes in the redzone where Bradford’s two best receivers, have a combined 15 career touchdowns, compared to 30 career trips to the endzone for the Notre Dame product. Rudolph also has a decent matchup, the Cleveland Brown threw 7 targets to their tight ends and they hauled in six passes for 62 yards. Last season, the Steelers finished just outside the bottom-ten in fantasy points allowed to tight ends.  Priced outside of the top-ten on FanDuel, Rudolph allows you to spend that cash in other spots.

 

I’d Avoid: WR, Mike Evans – FanDuel - $8,700 / Draftkings - $7,700

Mike Evans is coming off his bye week, and his priced has decreased a bit from last week. While the Bears have no one of note in the secondary the Bears are a tough squad against elite wide receivers. Julio posted just 4 catches for 66 yards last week, and Mike Evans posted the exact same stat line against the Bears. Last year against the elites, this is the average state lines for these players:  DeAndre Hopkins, Dez Bryant, T.Y. Hilton, Allen Robinson, Jordy Nelson (x2), Mike Evans, and Odell Beckham Jr. These guys averaged 4.75 catches on 7.1 targets for 70 yards and .375 touchdowns. The Bears just play a conservative style to take these guys away, making Evans a guy to avoid for me this week.

 

 

 

ØC's Week 2 DFS

 

Pillar: WR, Antonio Brown – FanDuel - $9,400 / DraftKings - $9,400

Even with the Steelers struggling, Brown amassed 32.2 fantasy points in PPR off 11 receptions. With David Johnson on the IR, Brown is the only player who can pencil in 10 FF points before the game begins. I won’t pay more than $10k for him and even $9,500 is cutting is close, but the return is worth it at Heinze Field.

 

Sleeper: RB, Thomas Rawls – FanDuel - $5,800 / DraftKings - $4,600

Rawls was a full participant in practice after not dressing for the first game of the season in Green Bay. For Week 2, Rawls will be the de-facto starting RB at home against San Francisco, who allowed a combined 24.2 FF points to Carolina backs in half PPR. Eddie Lacy is no threat and Prosise has a very specific role in the offense, so the only worry is rookie Chris Carson. If Rawls begins to falter we will see more carries for Carson, but I honestly don’t see Rawls getting less than 60% of the work.

 

Low-Cost Dart Throw: RB, Andre Ellington – FanDuel - $4,900 / DraftKings - $4,000

With the injury to David Johnson, Kerwyn Williams and Andre Ellington will see an increased workload. The Colts as a whole are a horrible team that allowed a combined 25.7 FF points to Todd Gurley and Malcolm Brown in Week 1, with most damage coming through the air; Ellington’s specialty. At such a cheap price, the potential is astounding.

 

I'd Avoid: WR, TY Hilton – FanDuel - $7,200 / DraftKings - $5,300

Hilton is more appropriately priced in DraftKings, but his potential is very low with either Brissett or Tolzein at the quarterback position. He just isn’t the same player without Andrew Luck, and a tougher Cardinals secondary is coming to town. Hilton should collect another five for fifty type stat line which is not going to win you any tournaments. Spend your budget elsewhere.

 

Stack: Thomas Rawls and Doug Baldwin

 



d-Rx's Week 2 DFS


Pillar: Brandin Cooks - FanDuel - $7,900 / DraftKings - $8,200

Revenge game for Brandin Cooks against his old team the Saints with a head coach that like revenge type shite in Belichick.Chris  Hogan might be the guy that has the huge game, but 1 of them is and my money is on the speedster out of Oregon State that the Patriots just acquired.


Sleeper: TE, Martellus Bennett - FanDuel - $5,800 / DraftKings - $3,900

The Falcons are crap against the tight end position and pretty stout vs. wide receivers. Aaron Rodgers will use the much-traveled Black Unicorn in this matchup to exploit the key weakness of the Falcons.

 

Low-Cost Dart Throw: RB, Chris Carson - FanDuel - $5,200 / DraftKings - $4,100

This is going to be the coming out party for Chris Carson. I know Rawls is back, but I think this team wants to have a lead back and it isn't Lacy, and Rawls is a good change of pace, move the chains type of runner. They know Rawls is an injury waiting to happen and Carson looks the part. We'll see who is right between me and ØC, who has Rawls as his sleeper pick.

 

I'd Avoid: WR, Michael Thomas - FanDuel - $8,000 / DraftKings - $7,500

Sorry to have this be so Bill Belichick focused, but they are coming off of a brutal loss, and while Drew Brees plays great against the Patrios, the Patriots always shut someone down. Tomorrow, that person is going to be Michael Thomas.


Stack: Derek Carr & Marshawn Lynch vs. the Jets
