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!

Week 7 Injury Report as of 10/22/16

 

Arizona Cardinals

Player: John Brown, WR

Injury: Brown is listed as doubtful with a hamstring injury.    

Source: Darren Urban on Twitter

Fantasy Impact: Brown did not practice all week and therefore is doubtful to play this week against the Seahawks. He seems to have a leg problem due to sickle-cell.

Player: Carson Palmer, QB

Injury: Palmer is listed as questionable for Sunday night football against the Seahawks with a hamstring problem.     

Source: Darren Urban on Twitter

Fantasy Impact: Palmer has been practicing this week and is expected to start this week with a very tough matchup against Seattle.

 

 

Baltimore Ravens

Player: C.J. Mosley, LB

Injury: Mosley has been ruled out with a thigh injury for a second consecutive week.

Source: www.csnmidatlantic.com

Fantasy Impact: Mosley will continue to miss time this week, with the Ravens facing a plethora of injuries this week including fellow linebackers Suggs and Dumervil.

Player: Steve Smith Sr., WR

Injury: The Ravens are likely to be without Steve Smith this week with an ankle injury.

Source: www.csnmidatlantic.com

Fantasy Impact: With Smith likely missing out this week, look for Aiken and Wallace to see an uptick in looks in his stead.

Player: Joe Flacco, QB

Injury: Is listed as questionable for Sunday with a sore right shoulder, but returned to practice on Friday.

Source: www.csnmidatlantic.com

Fantasy Impact: After getting a full practice in on Friday, Flacco is expected to start this week against a beatable Jets secondary.

 

 

Buffalo Bills

Player: LeSean McCoy, RB

Injury: McCoy will travel with the team to Miami, and is questionable with a hamstring injury.

Source: Jeff Darlington on Twitter

Fantasy Impact: McCoy is shaping up to be a game-time decision for the Bills as they are clearly trying to get him on the field. If he cannot go on Sunday during warmups, Mike Gillislee will likely see the bulk of the carries.

 

 

Chicago Bears

Player: Brian Hoyer, QB

Injury: Hoyer suffered a broken left arm on Thursday night against the Packers.      

Source: Jeff Dickerson on Twitter

Fantasy Impact: With Hoyer down, Matt Barkley takes over as the starting QB for the time being, until Cutler is cleared to go. A tough situation for the woeful Bears.

 

 

Cincinnati Bengals

Player: Vontaze Burfict, LB

Injury: Burfict suffered an ankle injury this week at practice and is listed as questionable.

Source: Katherine Terrell on Twitter

Fantasy Impact: Burfict should be monitored until his game this week, but there are no signs pointing to him being unavailable for the game this week yet.

Player: Tyler Eifert, TE

Injury: If Eifert is available this week, he is expected to play some limited snaps. He is attempting to return from a back injury.

Source: Katherine Terrell on Twitter

Fantasy Impact: Eifert will more than likely be a game-time decision this week. If he does even play it will be a limited amount. Eifert may make for a good pickup this week if he is sitting around on the wire for future weeks.

 

 

Cleveland Browns

Player: Terrell Pryor, WR

Injury: Pryor is questionable with a hamstring injury this week.

Source: www.dawgsbynature.com

Fantasy Impact: Pryor got back into practice in a limited capacity on Friday. He may be limited this week and will probably be available as the Browns emergency QB as well.

 

 

Detroit Lions

Player: Eric Ebron, TE

Injury: Ebron has been ruled out with ankle and knee injuries this week.

Source: www.prideofdetroit.com

Fantasy Impact: Ebron is out for a third straight week leaving Clay Harbor and Khari Lee to continue splitting reps at TE.

Player: Theo Riddick, RB

Injury: Riddick is out this week with an ankle injury.

Source: www.prideofdetroit.com

Fantasy Impact: Riddick will miss a second consecutive week, leaving a running back committee in his stead of Forsett, Dwayne Washington, and Zach Zenner.

 

 

Green Bay Packers

Player: Eddie Lacy, RB

Injury: Lacy has been placed on I.R. after ankle surgery.

Source: Adam Schefter on Twitter

Fantasy Impact: With Lacy set to miss an extended period of time, the Packers seem to be willing to give anybody and everybody some carries in the ground game. A backfield situation to avoid at the moment until it clears up.

 

 

Houston Texans

Player: Brock Osweiler, QB

Injury: Brock is questionable with a foot injury this week, but was listed as a full participant on Friday.

Source: www.houstontexans.com

Fantasy Impact: With Osweiler logging a full practice on Friday, he will likely start for the Texans as usual this week against a very tough Denver defense.

Player: Will Fuller, WR

Injury: Fuller is questionable with an ongoing hamstring issue.

Source: www.houstontexans.com

Fantasy Impact: Fuller has logged limited practices this week and figures to go this week, but the situation should be monitored as he faced some struggles last week getting on the field.

Player: DeAndre Hopkins, WR

Injury: Hopkins was listed as questionable with a hamstring issue, but logged a full practice on Friday.

Source: www.houstontexans.com

Fantasy Impact: Logging a full practice on Friday, Hopkins will be out there as the No. 1 option for the Texans as he battles against one of the best secondarys in the entire NFL.

 

 

Indianapolis Colts

Player: T.Y. Hilton, WR

Injury: Hilton returned to practice on Friday with a hip issue.

Source: www.cbssports.com

Fantasy Impact: The Colts have been resting Hilton and he should be ready to go this week for the Colts.

Player: Andrew Luck, QB

Injury: Luck was limited at practice on Thursday.

Source: Paul Kuharsky on Twitter

Fantasy Impact: Luck was a full participant on Wednesday and has practiced all week so he will start for the Colts this week without question.

 

 

Kansas City Chiefs

Player: Jamaal Charles, RB

Injury: Charles experienced some knee swelling on Friday and is questionable for Week 7.

Source: B.J. Kissel on Twitter

Fantasy Impact: With this unexpected setback of his knee, look for Spencer Ware to continue to hog the workload in KC even if Charles does suit up, as he will likely be limited.

Los Angeles Rams

Player: Robert Quinn, DL

Injury: Quinn is questionable to play on Sunday due to a shoulder injury.

Source: www.bleacherreport.com

Fantasy Impact: Quinn hopes to be cleared this week and seems ready to play. Whether the team decides to let him play is yet to be seen, so monitor the situation going forward if you are looking forward to plugging the star DL in your lineup.

 

 

Miami Dolphins

Player: Reshad Jones, DB

Injury: Jones will miss the remainder of the season with a torn rotator cuff.

Source: Armando Salguero on Twitter

Fantasy Impact: With Jones set to miss the rest of the season, Michael Thomas and Walt Aikens are set to fill in at safety for him. It is yet to see how playing time will shake out between the two. This is a crushing blow to an already weak secondary for the Dolphins.

 

 

Minnesota Vikings

Player: Stefon Diggs, WR

Injury: Diggs is listed as questionable this week with a groin injury.

Source: www.thevikingage.com

Fantasy Impact: Diggs finally returned as a full participant on Friday, and is expected to slot back in as the top receiving option for the Vikes this week as they face the Eagles.

 

 

New England Patriots

Player(s): Julian Edelman, WR and Martellus Bennett, TE

Injury: Both are listed as questionable with a foot and an ankle injury respectively.

Source: www.steelersdepot.com

Fantasy Impact: These guys have been limited participants all week and are expected to fill their usual roles for a potent Patriots offense.

Player: Jamie Collins, LB

Injury: Collins is questionable with a hip injury that caused him to miss last week.     

Source: www.steelersdepot.com

Fantasy Impact: Collins’ status is still up in the air on his availability as this same injury caused him to miss out last week. His status will likely be decided on Sunday. Hightower filled in admirably with an increased amount of playing time.

 

 

New York Jets

Player: Muhammed Wilkerson, DL

Injury: Wilkerson is questionable with an ankle injury.          

Source: www.nj.com

Fantasy Impact: The Jets have been playing Wilkerson a ton of snaps this year after he missed some time last year and it seems to be catching up. There is some concern he may miss this week, but that has not been decided yet.

 

 

Oakland Raiders

Player: Latavius Murray, RB

Injury: Murray is questionable for Week 7 with a toe injury. 

Source: Vic Tafur on Twitter

Fantasy Impact: Murray has returned to practice this whole week in a limited capacity and is expected to start for the Raiders this week. He is trying to come back from a turf toe injury, and the backfield looks to remain crowded.

 

 

Pittsburgh Steelers

Player: Ben Roethlisberger, QB

Injury: Big Ben is expected to miss 4-6 weeks with a knee injury.      

Source: Jeremy Fowler on Twitter

Fantasy Impact: You all know the drill. When Roethlisberger is out, Landry Jones will pick up signal-calling duties for the Steelers as they wait for Big Ben to return. This should put a lid on the Steelers passing game, and increase Bell’s usage.

Player: Ryan Shazier, LB

Injury: Shazier returned as a full participant on Friday, recovering from an injured knee,      

Source: www.behindthesteelcurtain.com

Fantasy Impact: Shazier is expected to play, which is a huge boost to the Steelers defense as he can really fly around the field. It is to be seen how much he plays, as they might limit him to ensure that he continues to get healthy.

 

 

San Diego Chargers

Player: Travis Benjamin, WR

Injury: Benjamin is listed as questionable against the Falcons with a knee injury.       

Source: www.bloggingdirty.com

Fantasy Impact: Benjamin’s status seems to really be up in the air, as is the Chargers receiving options as a whole. I would expect that he may play in some limited capacity, but if he cannot go, Tyrell Williams will pick up a boost in targets. This is a situation to monitor if you are a Benjamin owner with a lack of options.

 

 

San Francisco 49ers

Player: Carlos Hyde, RB

Injury: Hyde has shed the sling on his right shoulder. 

Source: Can Inman on Twitter

Fantasy Impact: This points Hyde’s arrow up following the Week 8 bye for the Niners. He will sit this week, but should be available after that. This is a huge relief for the Niners and fantasy owners.

Player: Torrey Smith, WR

Injury: Smith is questionable with a back injury this week.

Source: Matt Barrows on Twitter

Fantasy Impact: Smith is generally expected to lay since he practiced in a limited capacity, but this back injury could keep him out. If you want to start this boom-or-bust option, monitor until game time.

 

 

Seattle Seahawks

Player: Kam Chancellor, DB

Injury: Chancellor is not expected to play in Week 7 with a groin injury.

Source: Lix Mathews on Twitter

Fantasy Impact: Kelcie McCray is Kam’s backup and will continue to fill in for him as he misses another week due to his groin injury.

 

 

Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Player: Doug Martin, RB

Injury: Bucs coach Koetter is not sure when Martin will return from his hamstring issue.      

Source: Alex Marvez on Twitter

Fantasy Impact: Martin’s timetable is a mystery, so plan on him missing an extended amount of time, since it does not seem like he is close to returning.

 

 

Washington Redskins

Player: Jordan Reed, TE

Injury: Reed is out of this week’s matchup as he still is not able to go following a concussion.           

Source: www.hogshaven.com

Fantasy Impact: Reed will miss his second consecutive week as he attempts to get out of the concussion protocol. Vernon Davis will be the primary TE for the Skins this week.

Player: Desean Jackson, WR

Injury: Jackson is questionable with a shoulder injury.

Source: www.hogshaven.com

Fantasy Impact: Jackson returned to practice on Friday which is a good sign for his availability. The Skins have been resting him so he should be ready to roll for the matchup against the Lions.
