Jordan Reed

Washington Redskins

Reed Starts Season on PUP


The Redskins have not released a specific injury, so we must assume that its connected to the shoulder or recurring concussions.

Fantasy Goo: I would hold off drafting any shares of Reed until the injury is confirmed. The Redskins opened training camp today, although unlikely it could be a new concussion or concussion-like symptoms, any new concussion issues will likely land Reed out of football.

Trevor Siemian

Denver Broncos

Siemian To Open Camp As Starter


Trevor Siemian will start training camp with first team. He and Paxton Lynch will rotate daily.

Fantasy Goo: While both have similar season total values, Demaryius Thomas and Emmanuel Sanders both clearly benefit from opposite receivers. Lynch adds value to Sanders gets a boost due to the deep ball and Siemian boosts Demaryius due to short ball accuracy.

Cody Kessler

Cleveland Browns

Kessler Opens Camp as QB1


Mary Cay Cabot has reported that Cody Kessler will get the first crack as starting QB in Brown's camp per Hugh Jackson.

Fantasy Goo: Kessler has the highest upside of of the Brown's current QB's in 2017. DeShone Kizer may be the long term plan, but I like Kessler for fantasy production in 2017.

Le'Veon Bell

Pittsburgh Steelers

Bell To Holdout


Le'Veon Bell reportedly turned down a 5 year extension averaging $12 million per year, and still hasn't signed his tender. Now star WR, Antonio Brown is calling out for the RB to show up and play via Instagram.

Fantasy Goo: The $12 million would make Le'Veon the highest paid RB in the and 50% higher than the current bread winner, LeSean McCoy. To me this says that Lev is going to hold out and is willing to miss regular season games (and paychecks) to receive a massive deal.

Jordan Matthews

Philadelphia Eagles

Matthews Knee Tendinitis Could Be Serious


Jordan Matthews has had a knee issue for the past month, so there is a chance it is more serious than tendinitis. This is a big story to keep track of through the Eagles training camp which kicks off today.

Fantasy Goo: Matthews is in elite company as one of only 5 WRs to open their career with 3 consecutive season with 65+ catches and 800+ yards. Joining Randy Moss, Odell Beckham Jr., A.J. Green and Mike Evans. If this issue persists or worsens, that success probably wont be sustained through a fourth season.

Ty Montgomery

Green Bay Packers

Ty Works With The Footwork King


Ty has reportedly been working out with Rischad Whitfield out of Houston to improve his footwork. Whitfield has been credited for working with both Melvin Gordon and Le'Veon Bell prior to their respective breakout sophomore seasons.

Fantasy Goo: This is not a guaranteed success as he also has worked with the likes of Jaelen Strong and Josh Huff so take this news with a grain of salt. However, Ty could see a vast improvement with improved footwork he could hit more holes, and have the confidence to be patient and let blocking develop.

Theo Riddick

Detroit Lions

Riddick Reportedly In Line for RZ Work


Tim Twentyman of the Detroit Lions homepage expects Cooter to utilize Riddick in the Red Zone more in 2017.

Fantasy Goo: Riddick converted all 3 of his RZ targets into scores. But this report contradict's Warren Sharps analysis that shows rushing in the RZ has a 58% success rate vs 43% for passing. I'm calling this news fluff and still expect big things from Abdullah.

Jay Ajayi

Miami Dolphins

Throw More Coal Into The Jay-Train


Mike Pouncey, the Dolphins All-Pro caliber center, should be back and healthy for camp.

Fantasy Goo: Ajayi averaged 18.8 fantasy points with Pouncey on the field compared to 9.0 without his star center. Expect Ajayi to have a sharp increase in price due to this news.

Kenneth Dixon

Baltimore Ravens

UPDATE: Dixon Out For Season


Dixon's surgery today was a repair of the meniscus rather than a trimming. This is the better surgery for long term use, but Dixon will not play in 2017.

Fantasy Goo: Terrance West steps in line for a large workload, but the 2016 number one pass offense in terms of volume will see a high dosage of Woodhead and potentiall Buck Allen out of the backfield.

Vance McDonald

San Francisco 49ers

Niners Cutting McDonald?


“One of the final moves of the previous regime was to sign off on a contract extension for McDonald, who was guaranteed $9.1 million with his new deal in December. Now, McDonald is not assured a roster spot as he and the other holdovers face stiff competition from the newcomers who were hand-picked for the scheme.”
If SF cut’s McDonald they still have to pay him his 9 million guaranteed money and take a 3.5mil cap hit this year.

Fantasy Goo: McDonald was one of my early season deep sleepers, but rumors of SF wanting him out have caused me to back off. His draft price has dropped like a rock and now I’m thinking that these beat reporters are out of their mind. I’m going back to targeting McDonald in the 18th round or later. He could have a huge year in the Shanahan offense.

Kenneth Dixon

Baltimore Ravens

Dixon Under the Knife


“The Ravens' need for another back intensified this week when the team learned that Dixon tweaked his knee while working out before training camp. Dixon, a second-year back, is believed to have a torn meniscus in his knee, according to sources. He'll have surgery today and the team will know more about the severity of the injury. This is Dixon's third knee injury since the Ravens took him in the fourth round of last year's draft.”

Fantasy Goo: This could set-up very well for Terrance West, but as someone who watched him in college, he’s not going to earn much more than what is blocked for him. If Woodhead is able to get back to full capacity we could also see a big year from him, especially in PPR. Either way this backfield is still looking like a committee that shouldn’t be considered until after the sixth/seventh round of your draft.

Marshawn Lynch

Seattle Seahawks

Lynch Not a Bell-Cow


“The depth at running back means he won’t have to shoulder a huge load. Something in the range of the 195 carries Latavius Murray had last year should suffice, perhaps less if both Washington and Richard see an increase.”

Fantasy Goo: If Lynch is at full-strength he won’t need to be a bell-cow to out preform Murray’s performance from last year. Murray finished as the RB13 (std scoring) in 2016, despite being fairly inefficient behind a top-5 O-line. I expect Lynch will be there to take Murray’s vacated red-zone carries, but expect to see DeAndre Washington take a larger role in this backfield, especially when we get to the second half of the season, and your fantasy playoffs.

Paul Perkins

New York Giants

Perkins Not Ideal For 0-RB


Many fantasy analysts are valuing Perkins very high due to reports that he could be a 3 down back for the Giants.

Fantasy Goo: The Giants have produced only 11 rushing TDs over the past two years. They have failed to have a 1,000 yard rusher since 2012 nor have they produced a PPR RB over RB20 since 2011. Perkins who lost college rushes to a Linebacker has limited upside in the Giants offense.

Sammy Watkins

Buffalo Bills

Watkins All The Way Back?


"After the season finale in New York, he said he hoped to avoid surgery, but days later elected to have the procedure done. His rehab appears to be on schedule, as he was able to participate in a few team drills before the Bills wrapped up their spring practices. With six weeks between mandatory minicamp and start of training camp, Watkins should be close to 100 percent when camp starts Thursday."

Fantasy Goo: Watkins has WR1 upside when he is healthy and he is currently being drafted in the third round. Others that have gone through this procedure and have come back to full upside include; Julian Edelman, Dez Bryant, and Julio Jones.

Eddie Lacy

Seattle Seahawks

Lacy Loses Weight, Gains Primary Role


“Lacy is the favorite to start over Thomas Rawls, who will still have a role. At a minimum, C.J. Prosise will be the third-down back and a big factor in the passing game.”

Fantasy Goo: In the five games he started last year, Lacy averaged over five yards a carry, all of Rawls value stems from four random, good games he had against weak defenses in 2015. Lacy’s biggest competition is going to come from Prosise. Prosise is a converted from receiver in college and at 6’, 220lbs, has the size-speed combo to take over as the primary back.

Robert Kelley

Washington Redskins

Fat Rob Gets the Nod


Rob Kelley is slated to be the starting RB in Washington, however Perine will still have the opportunity to play a big role in the offense.

Fantasy Goo: Though Perine may be the higher scoring back in 2017, getting a couple early games from Kelley could be very valuable given his low draft cost.

Duke Johnson

Cleveland Browns

Duke Johnson In The Slot


As reported by Mary Cay Cabot, Duke Johnson is likely to take over slot WR work from Andrew Hawkins who is now a Patriot. This depends on Josh Gordon's status if he is granted reinstatement in September.

Fantasy Goo: Until we get news on Gordon, Duke Johnson should be in line to see about 50 additional targets in 3 WR sets. This number will likely be allocating among Johnson, Njoku and DeValve.

Carson Palmer

Arizona Cardinals

Last Hurrah for Palmer?


"Last year, he kind of came in September, had already worn his arm out by overthrowing all summer," Arians said. "We found a nice regimen, November and December he was playing as good as he’s ever played." After finding the right work-out regimen Palmer was the number 8 QB over the last eight weeks of the season. David Johnson said "his arm is definitely feeling good."

Fantasy Goo: Palmer could be the reason why late-round QB works this year, with an ADP around QB20 Carson has real bounce back potential and is practically free. The stat to watch to indicate 2017 success will be decreasing his league high 137 hits from 2016.

Zach Miller

Chicago Bears

Bears Overload at TE


Miller's contract has one year remaining with a base salary of $1.5 million and the issue the Bears have to tackle is if they can take a chance knowing Miller's durability issues. He has played in 25 games and missed 23 since joining the team in 2014. The only free agent that received more guaranteed money than quarterback Mike Glennon was Dion Sims, who signed an $18 million, three-year contract with $10 million guaranteed, ensuring he will be a big part of Dowell Loggains' offense.

Fantasy Goo: The Bears are five deep at TE right now after drafting Adam Shaheen, acquiring Daniel Brown from Baltimore, and signing UDFA Ben Braunecker. Miller seems like the odd man out here and that’s why he is no longer a late-round flyer in deep leagues. I’ve switched gears to Dion Sims simply because of his athleticism and the Bears investment in him as an every-down TE.

Anquan Boldin

Detroit Lions

Boldin Trying Buffalo


Boldin will be working out for the Bills on Monday (7/24) “Boldin, 36, led the Lions with 22 red zone targets last season. He had 67 catches and a career-high eight touchdowns, though he averaged a career-worst 8.7 yards per grab (584 yards in total).” The Bills are looking pretty shallow at WR at this point, they’ll probably be looking to have a few other guys in as well.

Fantasy Goo: This could cut into any upside we were hoping for from Zay Jones, although you could argue that they are much different types of receivers that just happen to both work out of the slot. Boldin will certainly vulture some TD’s from the wide receivers, but it absolutely crushes any chance of Charles Clay having any value and probably snakes away a little of Johnathan Williams receiving potential.

Top Positional Weeks - Full 2016 Season

Top Positional Weeks - Quarterbacks

Full 2016 Season


Top Positional Weeks QBs - Season End 2016

(View Larger Chart)

 


QB Bullets


The Big Boom Theory:

11 QBs played in at least 75% of their team’s games and registered QB1 performances in at least half of them. Only three of those QBs averaged a weekly Top 5 performance during those QB1 weeks.  Tom Brady averaged a Top 5 performance in his 8 QB1 games, Aaron Rodgers averaged a Top 4 performance in his 12 QB1 games, and Drew Brees averaged a (crazy) Top 3 performance in his 10 QB1 games.


Spur of the Moment:

Six QBs managed to not only play in all 16 games for their team this season, but they managed to do so by performing at a QB1 level for at least half of them. One QB just happened to have accomplished this in his only NFL season. Dak Prescott legitimately turned heads this year after registering 10 QB1 weeks in his very first 16 games; four of which he made possible by scoring both through the air and on the ground.


12's Dozen:

Coming in late, off a four-week vacation, Tom Brady gauged what needed to be done to catch up to speed and still be considered for MVP honors. His plan was to release some pent-up overpressure and toss 12 TDs against AFC peons Cleveland, Cincinnati, Pittsburgh, and Buffalo--all while averaging Top 5 QB numbers during those weeks. Tom's just gonna Brady.


Like Like It:

Riding on coattails of his 2015 season, Kirk Cousins proved to (probably) everyone that last year wasn't a fluke and recorded 56% of his games as QB1 performances. Kirk will get paid this offseason, and he will likely continue to do what he does best; everything we don't expect him to.


Sack it up:

Even after another unremarkable season by the Colts, statistically speaking, it's hard to truly appreciate how good Andrew Luck performed. In his 15 games started, Luck posted Top 12 numbers 73% of the time; 3rd best among all QBs this season. In these 11 games, Luck benefited the most by keeping his TD numbers above the number of occasions where he was sacked, 28-to-23.



QB Nullets


High Floor, Low Ceiling:

14 QBs played in all 16 games for their team this season. While each of those 14 registered QB1 weeks, four QBs could not do it more than 25% of the time. Joe Flacco and Eli Manning recorded only four QB1 weeks from their 16 games, while Carson Wentz and Philip Rivers recorded only three across theirs.


Super Brown:

Have you ever read those articles where they take the best traits out of several different players and create one super player with them? Well, if you combined all four of the 2016 Browns QBs, the manufactured result is still a Browns QB. The thing about this QB, though, is that he would have had four QB1 performances! Sadly, this was an attempt to make the Browns appear favorable, but it just can't be done.


Fitzcious Cycle:

One year removed from seven QB1 weeks in 2015, Ryan Fitzpatrick was firm on his new season rate of $1-million per touchdown per game; completing only twelve TDs in twelve games this season and earning a Top 12 performance only once. Interesting fact: Ryan Fitzpatrick went to Harvard.

 

 

 

 

Top Positional Weeks - Running Backs

Full 2016 Season


Top Positional Weeks RBs - 2016 Season End

(View Larger Chart)

 

 

 

 

RB Bullets

 

Hit 'Em Low, Hit 'Em High:

Six RBs played in at least 75% of their team's games and registered RB1 performances in at least half of them. Only three of those six RBs were not only able to post Top 12 numbers at RB in a week, but they were also able to post Top 12 numbers at WR during that same week. DeMarco Murray did it in Week 1, Ezekiel Elliott in Week 10, and David Johnson in Week 13. Showing off even further, David Johnson averaged over five receptions in the 12 weeks that he posted RB1 numbers; second only to Le'Veon Bell's average of six-plus receptions in the nine weeks that he posted RB1 numbers.

 

Success Token:

After serving a three-game suspension, Le'Veon Bell blazed defenses in nine of his 12 games; grinding his way to 75% RB1 weeks. To maintain such success, Bell managed an average of 175 all-purpose yards and a touchdown in those nine games. Looking forward to next year, it's difficult to know if Bell can maintain playing that high. To be blunt, though, it's a good chance he will.

 

The Numbers Won't Lie:

Although he managed only four RB1 weeks in 14 games, Jay Ajayi proved to the rest of the NFL that if you rush for more than 200 yards in a game, you're guaranteed a Top 12 performance that week. Ajayi did it three (read: THREE!) times, and the Dolphins only started handing him the ball five weeks into the season. Is it sustainable? Absolutely not, but isn't that what we all said after he did it the first time?

 

Effective, But:

While Latavius Murray played 14 games, it should be noted that he played less than 55% of the Raiders offensive snaps. Although Murray's snaps were limited, he still managed to post six RB1 performances by averaging 97.8 all-purpose yards and 1.6 touchdowns in those weeks. As the workhorse RB era in the NFL continues to fade out, the Raiders are likely to continue working DeAndre Washington and Jalen Richard into their gameplan, leaving us with nothing better to do than watch snap shares.

 

Bear Trap:

When you learn that a running back ran for 1611 all-purpose yards in 15 games this year, you naturally anticipate seeing that he finished Top 12 among RBs for the majority of those weeks. For Jordan Howard, that wasn't the case. Touchdowns were tough to come by for Howard. He logged only 8 on the year, and 3 of those occurred in the same week. If the Bears can become more efficient moving the football, and Howard remains effective at the goal line, it's safe to assume that RB1 weeks will become a norm for the soon-to-be sophomore RB.

 

 

 

RB Nullets

 

Sharing, Not Caring:

After registering RB1 weeks in an impressive eleven out of fifteen games (73%) in 2015, Devonta Freeman managed similar performances in only 44% of the Falcons' sixteen games this year. While Freeman and stable companion Tevin Coleman were concurrently able to procure RB1 weeks twice this season (Weeks 3 & 5), it was Coleman who dominated the Falcons backfield in Weeks 2, 4, and 16. Coleman went from posting zero RB1 weeks in 2015 to five in 2016. For as long as these two engines share a one-car garage, relying on consistent RB1 weeks from either may result in persistent frustration.

 

Ram-Robbed:

Among the names at the top of the 2016 disappointment list sits Todd Gurley's. Sure, it's probably difficult carrying an entire NFL team on your back, but is it really so hard to average more than 3.2 yards per carry when you're handed the ball 278 times? 25% of Gurley's games translated into RB1 performances this season, but with weekly finishes of 10, 12, 9, and 12, is it anything to celebrate? To salt the wound even worse, Gurley had not even topped 3.8 yards per carry in his four best weeks. The lack of Jeff Fisher likely won't fix this, but what else is there to be hopeful about?

 

All Purple, No Gold:

After (seemingly) being handed the keys to a potential career year in Week 2 after a "season-ending" Adrian Peterson injury, Jerick McKinnon could not receive enough, nor make enough use out of his carries. While he made practical use as a situational receiver, the Vikings offensive line did nothing to make McKinnon's rush attempts easier. Adding injury to insult, Matt Asiata continued to own the Vikings goal line work. McKinnon's season was forgettable and two RB1 weeks is all that remains to show for it.

Full 2016 Season


Top Positional Weeks WRs -2016 Season End

WR Bullets

 

In The Champ's Corner:

When you have one of the greatest QBs to ever play the game throwing his players a football, the odds to have those players not have a Top 12 week is low. In 12 of 16 weeks this season, at least one Packers WR finished as a WR1. Some weeks, two Packers WRs finished as a WR1. Jordy Nelson and Randall Cobb did it in Week 13, and Jordy Nelson and Davante Adams did it in Week 14. Since it's unlikely for an elite QB to settle for above average, he made sure to have at least three of his WRs to finish as a WR1 in the same week. Jordy Nelson, Davante Adams, and Geronimo Allison all finished as a Top 12 WR in Week 10.

 

Saints Go Marching Up:

Not only did New Orleans Saints WRs Michael Thomas and Brandin Cooks receive a generous number of targets from Drew Brees this season, but they both also managed to turn those targets into catches and translate those catches into yards and touchdowns. In his first NFL season, Thomas finished among the Top 12 WRs in four of his 15 games, while second-year WR Cooks attained the same feat in four of his 16. If Drew Brees continues to Grand Marshall the Saints' march, there will be no retreat for either WR next year.

 

Twelve Strikes, 300, The Perfect Game:

While WR1 weeks are anticipated by the cream of the crop, it's not every week when you get to truly appreciate how great some of these players are. In Week 4, Julio Jones caught 12 passes and ran scared with them for a total of 300 yards. Jones became the 6th WR to post 300 receiving yards since 1940. Week 4 was just one of Jones' six WR1 weeks across the 13 games that he played this season. In those six games, he averaged a weekly finish among the Top 5 WRs, his comfort zone.

 

Earning Your Keep:

After spending four years buried on the Dolphins depth chart, Rishard Matthews was treated kindly in Free Agency when he was given the opportunity to be spotlighted in an offense led by Marcus Mariota. After a battle with snaps and targets against rookie Tajae Sharpe and veteran Andre Johnson, Matthews stood victorious among his peers and earned the confidence of his coach and quarterback. In a career year, Matthews caught 65 passes for 945 yards and 9 touchdowns; a performance that included four WR1 weeks. Assuming Mariota recovers from his injury positively, the trend should continue, even if the Titans add a WR in the 2017 Draft.

 

Someone’s Gotta Do It:

In his third season, Mike Evans proved that all he needs is for someone to throw him a football.  This was not only his third season of exceeding 1,000 receiving yards, but it was also his second season of reaching 12 touchdowns. Evans converted 171 targets into 96 receptions this season and managed to post eight WR1 weeks in doing so. While the Buccaneers lack another reliable pass-catcher, Evans' volume will be appreciated and relied upon until they do.

 

 

WR Nullets

 

QB Proofed:

Coming off many draft boards in the 1st round last offseason and as one of the first five wide receivers picked, DeAndre Hopkins proved everyone wrong and verified that he is, in fact, not "QB-proof." It's obvious that a 4-year $72-million contract just isn't enough to have a QB deliver a football to his elite WR. Unless Brock Osweiler is going to get paid $19 to $21-million to hold a clipboard for the next three seasons, the future remains devastatingly bleak for Hopkins' fantasy value.

 

Collateral Damage:

Each just one year removed from leading the NFL in touchdowns with 14, Jets WR Brandon Marshall and Jaguars WR Allen Robinson finished this season with three and six touchdowns, respectively. It just so happened that their QBs performed much worse than they did the year prior. Many owners were burned by any one of these four players this year. There's still hope that QB Blake Bortles and Robinson can reignite the flame they had in years past. As for QB Ryan Fitzpatrick and Marshall, who knows where either of them will be playing next season? At least there's not much room for them to decline statistically.

 

It Wasn't Supposed To Be Like This:

In his "this time I mean it" final season, Steve Smith Sr. was going to play angry, catch a metric ton of footballs and score dozens of touchdowns. We anticipated a season worth cheering him on for. What we got from Smith Sr. this season was an average performance from a player who, at times, performed as if he were 37. The classic Smith Sr. never settled with average, nor did he ever play as his age would assume. Steve Smith Sr. was a spectacle to watch for 16 years, and with just two WR1 weeks in 14 games this season, it seems as it's over for good.

 

 

 

Top Positional Weeks - Tight Ends

Full 2016 Season


Top Positional Weeks TEs - End of 2016 NFL Season

(View Larger Chart)

 

 

 

TE Bullets

 

T-88:

Defying the odds of being able to recover from a ruptured patellar tendon well enough to return to being a productive pass-catching NFL TE, Jimmy Graham should absolutely be the Comeback Player of the Year. Not only did Graham play every game this season, but he also managed to produce TE1 numbers in half of them. With an entire offseason to devote to strength and conditioning, as opposed to recovery, Graham should start next season right where he left off.

 

The Red-Zoned Reindeer:

After a slew of devastating injuries, as well as a late offseason QB acquisition, no one stepped up more for the Minnesota Vikings than Kyle Rudolph. After leading all TEs in targets with 132 as well as finishing 2nd among all players in red zone targets, Rudolph tied for the second highest percentage of TE1 games with 56%. At 27 years old, Rudolph seems to have established himself a permanent role with the Vikings and with that, his targets and touchdowns should sustain.

 

Frequent IR-er:

After an offseason ankle surgery and subsequent back injury caused him to miss the first eight weeks of the season, Tyler Eifert wasted no time doing what he does best, catching touchdowns on limited opportunities. Two assumptions that continue to surround Eifert in his four seasons is that he can't stay healthy and that he's touchdown dependent. While Eifert's done nothing to make anyone think otherwise, it's difficult to overlook how good he is when he is catching those touchdowns. In his eight games this season, Eifert manage to post TE1 numbers in five of them. Not surprisingly, he was scheduled for back surgery at the end of this season. And so, it goes...

  


TE Nullets

 

So Easy, Ifeanyi Can Do It:

Season after season, the TE player pool is one that many of us wish we could avoid. While the price of paying for one of the top TEs may not be worth the price or an optimal move, the struggle to find one later who will score your team points may not be either. Looking at Top Positional Weeks for Tight Ends, often times, a touchdown isn't even necessary for a player to finish as a TE1. At the same time, a touchdown by a TE will likely guarantee them a TE1 week. Frankly put, if a TE catches two receptions for 50 yards and finishes that week as a TE1 like Ifeanyi Momah did this year in Week 13, is there really anything to be excited about?
