However, only six weeks in, that script has definitely flipped. Savvy fantasy players would have drafted proper depth, made a few trades, or scoured the waiver wire for players to fill the void and salvage their seasons.
Dominate your league with Fantasy Alarm's season-long tools. Digging deeper into target shares and workload allows you to look ahead a little bit and see which players are trending down and worth possibly selling or dropping, as well as which players may become more of a focal point so you can snag them and make a run. The part about the Georgia Southern product which should intrigue you most is his involvement in the passing game.
Minnesota matches up with the Ravens next week, and Jordan Howard had quite a day against them in Week 6 with yards on 36 carries. Here we have a bright spot in a bad offense at a very thin position. The big tight end has the tools to be great and is the key guy in this offense, especially in the red zone. ASJ and Josh McCown clearly have a connection, and at the tight end position, you could do worse than this type of consistency. The Jets now head to Miami to face the fifth-worst defense against TEs, so look for more of the same next week.
All Day is back! Okay, settle down, party poopers. Arizona jumped out to a huge lead early, allowing them to run more. Peterson has only been there a week, not even a full week. This has to be a fluky performance right? If you watched a majority of this game, Peterson did look like the AP of old, stopping on a dime and making cuts decisively and exploding through the holes.
The Cardinals really want to take some of the load off of veteran QB Carson Palmer this season, and 26 carries for yards and two touchdowns from Peterson certainly shows that effort.
Did you know that Brate graduated from Harvard? Did you know that since the start of the season, Brate has a position-high 12, yes, 12 touchdowns? Did you know that he has received 23 targets over the last three weeks? These are all incredible NFL facts for a player who is relatively unknown outside of competitive fantasy circles and is incredibly underrated. Brate has now scored in four consecutive games and is the third-ranked TE in standard fantasy leagues. The sample size here is big enough to conclude that Brate is and should be considered a member of the elite tier of tight ends in fantasy football in The speedy back has all the talent and elusiveness you could want.
He can do it all. The problem is Jordan Howard. Howard is getting the majority of carries, especially the meaningful ones, out-carrying Cohen over the past two weeks.
Although, to be fair, Ryan was never an elite fantasy option outside of their Super Bowl season. This seems to be more along the lines of what to expect from Matty Ice from here on out, but with fewer interceptions. Atlanta has struggled offensively the past two games and ended up losing both of them because of a lack of efficiency from the quarterback position.
Atlanta now has three consecutive road games on their schedule against the Patriots, Jets and Panthers, setting up a make-or-break stretch for Ryan here in ' When the Redskins went out and signed the playmaker away from the Browns, they expected to get a red-zone target and a guy who could create separation and win one-on-one matchups. Looking ahead to their second meeting with the Eagles in Week 7 six catches for 66 yards in Week 1 , Pryor needs to make an impact against the second-worst defense to opposing WRs to get his stock trending in the other direction.
Trading AP to Arizona clears the way for Ingram to take back the lead role and run with it pun intended. However, the weay New Orleans uses Ingram is always a worry.
Many are still on the fence with Ingram because of how bad the Saints defense can be, as well as their propensity to throw the ball. However, his fantasy prospects could take a huge leap if they decide to take some pressure off of an aging Drew Brees and run the ball more consistently. His opportunity is here with an upcoming schedule of Green Bay, Chicago and Tampa Bay, three games where New Orleans will have every opportunity to take a lead and run the ball.
There is absolutely no doubt that this is also a huge hit to all of the Packer weapons. Nelson, Adams and Cobb are all very good players who can and will produce no matter the QB. The concern is how big will the drop-off be? Time will tell if he has the ability.More...
