Kansas City Chiefs

We're Not in Kansas Anymore


There are steady 20-plus MPH winds w/35 MPH gusts in New York and that will prevent the deep ball from being a major factor in the Giants game vs KC.

Look for Alex Smith revert to the dink and dunk game which defined his career before this year’s break-out campaign. I really don’t think it hurts anyone’s value though. The Giants problems stem from poor talking and Hill can take a screen pass for 80 yards at any time. The Giants are so poor against the TE that Kelce should still be heavily used in DFS. We should also see a nice bump in Hunt’s usage across the board.

Sterling Shepard

New York Giants

Migraines Sideline Shepard


The Giants may be without WR Sterling Shepard, a late addition to their injury report, due to migraines, source says. They’ll check him out closer to kickoff to be sure.
Update: Sterling Shepard (migraines) is inactive for Week 11 against the Chiefs.

This would have been an awesome match-up for Shepard, and he was looking at plenty of targets, but I don’t mess with migraines. I’m pivoting to other players, and none of them are Giants.

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.

Update: Fournette is active, Ivory battling illness.

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.

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!

Lance Kendricks becoming a target monster

Week 10 Waiver Wire Pickups

Posted by Houdini on 11/06/16

ALL PLAYERS LISTED ARE AVAILABLE IN 30% OR MORE OF CBS LEAGUES

 

 

CREAM OF THE CROP

 

ERIC EBRON – TE – LIONS – AVAILABLE IN 40% OF CBS LEAGUES

Ebron is showing the skills that made him the 10th overall pick of the Lions in 2014. Eric hauled in seven passes for 92 yards this week against a tough Vikings defense. Ebron has become the safety blanket for Matthew Stafford, and he is showing nice ability after the catch as well. He is an injury risk, but he has been doing a better job avoiding contact of late.

 

LANCE KENDRICKS – TE – RAMS – AVAILABLE IN 68% OF CBS LEAGUES

The Rams lack legitimate weapons in the passing game, and Kendricks has been taking advantage of the increase in targets because of that. Kendricks was targeted 12 times this week and has been targeted 29 times over the last three weeks. With tight end being as weak as it is this season, Lance is nice grab that you can start the next three weeks with games against the Jets, Dolphins and Saints.  

 

CHRIS IVORY – RB – JAGUARS – AVAILABLE IN 41% OF CBS LEAGUES

Ivory finally showed why the Jaguars gave him big money in the offseason this week, carrying the rock 18 times for 107 yards. He did have a costly goal line fumble, but it should not hurt him going into next week, as T.J. Yeldon also fumbled this week. Ivory is not a pass catcher, so his value is stronger in standard leagues, but this performance should give him the majority of carries in the backfield next week and going forward.

 

ALFRED MORRIS –RB – COWBOYS – AVAILABLE IN 64% OF CBS LEAGUES

Ezekiel Elliott has been linked to a second incident with his ex-girlfriend, but it is still unclear if he will face a suspension this year. It is my opinion that he will not be suspended this season, but that does not mean that Alfred Morris is not worth picking up. Zeke has had a ton of carries this season, and is on pace for more than 350 on the season. There is a good chance that Elliott hits the rookie wall during your fantasy playoffs. Morris is a handcuff you must have. This week Morris got 17 carries for 56 yards.

 

KENNY BRITT – WR – RAMS – AVAILABLE IN 34% OF CBS LEAGUES

Britt did not have a big yardage game, with 49 yards on four receptions, but he did find the endzone, and now has three touchdowns over his last three games. Kenny is the best receiver on the Rams, and will continue to get a good amount of targets on a weekly basis. This yardage is the floor for him, so he is not giving you goose eggs.

 

MOHOMAD SANU – WR – FALCONS – AVAILABLE IN 39% OF CBS LEAGUES
Sanu is locked in as the second receiver for the Falcons, and he continues to get favorable matchups with defenses focusing on Julio Jones. This week he caught five passes for 74 yards, but was held out of the endzone. With the amount of targets Sanu is getting on a weekly basis he should be added in all leagues.

 

PAUL PERKINS – RB – GIANTS – AVAILABLE IN 60% OF CBS LEAGUES

Perkins had 32 yards on 11 carries and added 15 yards on three receptions this week. The 11 carries for Perkins were tied for the team lead with Rashad Jennings, and he out gained him this week. Perkins is likely to start getting the majority of touches in the backfield going forward. He is the most explosive player they have at running back, and he just needs to improve on his blocking to see even more offensive snaps. He should be added in all leagues, as he could become a valuable cog when the fantasy playoffs roll around.

 

AUSTIN HOOPER – TE – FALCONS – AVAILABLE IN 69% OF CBS LEAGUES

Hooper got the start this week with Jacob Tamme sidelined and he made good on his opportunity, catching three passes for 46 yards with a touchdown. The rookie is getting more involved in the offense and he has the ability to stretch the defense, which creates nice one on one opportunites that Matt Ryan will look to exploit going forward.

 

CHRIS HOGAN – WR – PATRIOTS – AVAILABLE IN 60% OF CBS LEAGUES

The Patriots were on bye this week, but Hogan has been showing nice chemistry with Tom Brady and should be picked up if you have enough bench depth in your league.

 

JACK DOYLE – TE – COLTS – AVAILABLE IN 41% OF CBS LEAGUES

Doyle continues to be a favorite target of Andrew Luck, and this week he hauled in five passes for 61 yards. The bigger news is that Dwayne Allen only caught one pass for 15 yards. Doyle has taken over as the lead tight end, and will have some decent matchups after the bye next week.

 

 

PLAYERS WITH UPSIDE THAT ARE WORTH STASHING

 

KENNETH DIXON – RB – RAVENS – AVAILABLE IN 66% OF CBS LEAGUES

Dixon was still behind Terrance West in terms of touches, and struggled again this week with 13 yards on 9 carries. The good news for Dixon is that West also struggled, gaining 21 yards on 15 carries. The Ravens like the potential of KD, so expect that he will continue to be in a committee with West, but has the potential to take it over with a strong game.

 

MARQISE LEE – WR – JAGUARS – AVAILABLE IN 91% OF CBS LEAGUES

Lee is not a major touchdown threat, but he is becoming a bigger part of the Jags offense than Allen Hurns in terms of production. This week he had 84 yards on four catches, and added 11 yards on a carry this week. Lee has good speed and is worth stashing in deeper leagues.

 

J.J. NELSON – WR – CARDINALS – AVAILABLE IN 80% OF CBS LEAGUES

The Cardinals were also on a bye this week, but you should not sleep on Nelson if you can stash him on your bench. He is becoming more involved in the offense, and has big play ability, which Bruce Arians loves. 

 

JALEN RICHARD – RB – RAIDERS – AVAILABLE IN 83% OF CBS LEAGUES

Richard is a nice complement to Latavius Murray, and this week he had eight carries for 62 yards and two receptions for 10 yards against a tough Broncos defense. Murray finally had a breakout game, but Richard still got work. The Raiders are using a community backfield with Murray, Washington and Richard, so his value would be higher if there were an injury, but he has performed better than Washington. 

 

C.J. FIEDOROWICZ – TE – TEXANS – AVAILABLE IN 74% OF CBS LEAGUES

The Texans were another team on the bye this week, and that caused Fiedorowicz to be dropped in leagues, but you should zig when everyone else is zagging if you are in a deep league. He is being used on over 87% of the Texans offensive snaps and has become a weapon in the redzone, with three touchdowns in his last six games.

 

ELI ROGERS – WR – STEELERS – AVAILABLE IN 93% OF CBS LEAGUES

Sammie Coates was non-existent in the offense this week, and that allowed Rogers to step up and make some noise. He caught six passes for 103 yards, but was held out of the endzone. Roger’s potential is much better now that Big Ben is back, but you will still have to deal with inconsistent play.

 

ADAM HUMPHRIES – WR – BUCCANEERS – AVAILABLE IN 75% OF CBS LEAGUES

Humphries continues to be a solid play in the Bucs offense, and this week he hauled in five passes for 46 yards with a score. He is not going to get you 100-yard receiving games, but if you are in a deeper PPR league he is definitely worth stashing for the right matchup.

 

ADAM THIELEN – WR – VIKINGS – AVAILABLE IN 94% OF CBS LEAGUES

Like Humphries, Thielen is becoming a bigger part of the Vikings offense, and this week he caught four passes for 68 yards. Thielen is very similar to Humphries and is also unlikely to have a 100-yard receiving game, but is worth adding in deeper PPR leagues.

 

CORDARRELLE PATTERSON – WR – VIKINGS – AVAILABLE IN 91% OF CBS LEAGUES

Patterson is getting more looks in the Vikings offense, and this week he caught six passes for 45 yards. Cordarrelle was also targeted in the redzone, so it looks like the Vikings are desperate to get the ball into the hands of their best playmakers, and Patterson is one of them. He will be a frustrating player to start, but he does have the ability to take any ball to the house. Grab him now if you can stash him, because if they increase his role he will be a top waiver claim next week.

 

 

WHAT YOU SEE IS WHAT YOU GET WITH THESE GUYS

 

BILAL POWELL – RB – JETS – AVAILABLE IN 49% OF CBS LEAGUES

Powell is still second banana to Matt Forte, and this week he carried the ball six times for 22 yards, and caught four passes for 29 yards. This is the type of game you can expect, as most of his value is as a handcuff to Forte. 

 

SETH ROBERTS – WR – RAIDERS – AVAILABLE IN 95% OF CBS LEAGUES

Roberts can give you a nice hit every once in a while, otherwise his stats look like this week with three receptions for 32 yards on three targets. His is the third option behind Cooper and Crabtree, and has good competition behind him as well.

 

VIRGIL GREEN – TE – BRONCOS – AVAILABLE IN 90% OF CBS LEAGUES

The Broncos passing offense runs through DT and Sanders, and Green is in the mix with everyone else that gets a few chances a game to make a play. This week he was targeted four times and caught two of those for 37 yards. The Broncos offense is anemic and Green does not have a lot of upside. 

 

RISHARD MATTHEWS – WR – TITANS – AVAILABLE IN 88% OF CBS LEAGUES

Matthews was the receiver that had the big game for the Titans this week, catching six passes for 63 yards with two scores. You can’t count on the scores, but the yardage is about what you can expect from Matthews on a good week. The Titans just have too many receivers that get targets to make Matthews or any of them a strong start week to week.

 

RONNIE HILLMAN – RB – VIKIINGS – AVAILABLE IN 100% OF CBS LEAGUES

Hillman had seven carries for 30 yards and one reception for 32 yards with week against the Lions. The Vikings are looking for answers at running back, and even with these mediocre numbers Hillman was the best of the bunch this week. You are not going to get a ton of success from him, but he should get touches on a weekly basis going forward.

 

 

SMOKE AND MIRRORS – AVOID THESE GUYS ON THE WIRE

 

NELSON AGHOLOR – WR – EAGLES – AVAILABLE IN 94% OF CBS LEAGUES

The Eagles lack playmakers on in their receiving corps, which may make you think of grabbing Agholor who had four receptions for 41 yards this week, but don’t. This game is about the best of what you are going to get from Nelson. Wentz is checking down a lot, and he has so many wide receiver options that none of them are really interesting other than Jordan Matthews.

 

QUINTON PATTON – WR – 49ERS – AVAILABLE IN 100% OF CBS LEAGUES

Patton had a huge game this week with 106 yards on six catches. There will be many owners who go running to Patton this week, but you should not be one of them. This performance came against the Saints defense, which is atrocious. Patton still has to deal with Colin Kaepernick and his inconsistent quarterback play, and then there is the fact that Patton had only had two games prior to this one with more than 25 receiving yards, with a high game of 60 yards. Stay away from this project.

 

RICHARD RODGERS – TE – PACKERS – AVAILABLE IN 91% OF CBS LEAGUES

Rodgers had a nice game this week, catching six passes for 64 yards, but was held out of the endzone. Richard was able to do this against a poor Colts defense, and that was his best performance of the season. Prior to this game his high yardage output in a game was 25 yards.

 

BRYCE TREGGS – WR – EAGLES – AVAILABLE IN 100% OF CBS LEAUGES

Treggs had two receptions for 69 yards this week, but it all smoke and mirrors. Bryce is in the same situation as Agholor with too many mouths and no consistency. Look somewhere else for help this week.

 

TAYLOR GABRIEL – WR – FALCONS – AVAILABLE IN 100% OF CBS LEAGUES

Gabriel has made some splash plays the last two weeks, and this week he caught five passes for 52 yards. That came against a poor Tampa Bay defense, and while he looks like he is becoming a bigger part of the Falcons offense it will all disappear when Tevin Coleman returns to the lineup.
