In today’s Three and Out: Adrian Peterson says he’ll play in Week 12, but he might not be a must-start for some fantasy owners.

Stay put, Matt: When the Raiders said they weren’t committed to Terrelle Pryor, they weren’t kidding. Pryor has been dealing with knee issues, but he’s practicing again as of today … except it’s with the second unit. Matt McGloin has been named Oakland’s starter against Tennessee. The undrafted rookie ambushed the Texans by throwing three scores and no picks. I’ve said this before and will say it again: be extremely cautious about buying in on QBs who have great initial success (ie beginner’s luck). Take Case Keenum as one of many examples — another guy who hit the ground running, set off a fantasy waiver wire stampede, then tapered off as soon as defensive coordinators had some film they could […]

In today’s Three and Out: Wes Welker was reportedly evaluated for a concussion during Sunday night’s win over Kansas City.
Case not closed: So, the Texans didn’t need much time to declare Case Keenum will start in Week 12 against the Jaguars. “I’ve got total confidence in him,” said coach Gary Kubiak. Except most of his fantasy owners don’t anymore after the inexplicably poor performance against a Raiders secondary that doesn’t exactly terrify opposing quarterbacks. If you own Keenum, I’m sorry. I really don’t know what to tell you, other than the Jags defense presents a good opportunity for him to get back on track. Nonetheless, keep your other options as open as possible. I wouldn’t start Keenum this week unless I had absolutely zero alternatives. Have a seat, Jay: The Bears have already ruled out Jay Cutler (ankle, […]
Matt McGloin started his first NFL game for the Oakland Raiders and quickly earned his first That Helps No One award. Read on to learn why.
Bobby Rainey has one career start, and one KABOOM! award. Both came in Week 11. Read on for more about his big day.

» Apparently all Ryan Mathews needed was for everyone to stop believing in him. He posted another 100-yard rushing game. » Eli Manning has a TD pass today. It was to (you probably guessed) Rueben Randle. Eli’s last six touchdown tosses have gone to Randle. In other news, Victor Cruz has been productive with more than 100 receiving yards. » You can officially put Matt Ryan on your bench and leave him there. » Today made up for all of those weeks when Antonio Brown had good yardage totals but never scored a touchdown. Sort of. » Just when we think Riley Cooper is worthy of being in your lineup, he puts up just three catches for 37 yards. But DeSean Jackson and LeSean McCoy came up with nice receiving numbers. » Robert […]
In this week’s Social (Fantasy) Network, we ask who fantasy owners are most counting on to help them make it to the playoffs.
Posted: November 15th, 2013 | Marcas Grant | Tags: Three and out, Atlanta Falcons, Bobby Rainey, Brian Leonard, Buffalo Bills, C.J. Spiller, EJ Manuel, Fred Jackson, Harry Douglas, Matt Ryan, Robert Woods, Stevie Johnson, Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Tony Gonzalez, Vincent Jackson
In today’s Three and Out: Vincent Jackson could see more WR targets this week; Could you say the same for C.J. Spiller? Don’t count on it.

Sit Stevie: According to a report on the official Bills team site, coach Doug Marrone “(doesn’t) feel good” about Stevie Johnson’s chances of seeing the field in Week 11. Johnson picked up a groin injury last week against the Steelers, but he hasn’t been a consistent fantasy threat when he’s healthy. Stevie seems to have one good week every so often, then lets his owners down more often than not. If you had been banking on him starting this week, you may want to jump on the waiver wire and make other plans. Broken Law: Remember when going into the season, the consensus was BenJarvus Green-Ellis and Giovanni Bernard would split carries until a winner emerged? Bernard went on to […]

How many NFL players are hard core fantasy players themselves? It’s hard to say for sure, but Seattle Seahawks wide receiver Golden Tate is one of them. Tate was kind enough to stop in and join Michael Fabiano from NFL Fantasy Live to talk about a number of different topics. We have yet to see Percy Harvin play in a Seahawks uniform, and that could change in Week 11. Tate gives his thoughts on what kind of impact Harvin’s presence will make on the offense. Tate also sheds some light on how Russell Wilson helps the Seahawks offense get in sync before gameday. Finally, who else populates Golden Tate’s fantasy team? Are any other Seahawks on his roster? Where […]
It was once said that all Cris Carter did was catch touchdowns. That would have been good enough to make him a fantasy star — except he did so much more.

In today’s Three and Out: Mike James is hurting; Terrelle Pryor is hurting worse than first thought … and is Ray Rice hurting?

Fantasy playoffs are right around the corner — can you believe it? Now may be the most critical time of the fantasy to make sure you’re maximizing the talent on your roster. The Fantasy Live crew takes a look at their picks for some of the top waiver wire pickups in Week 11. Michael Fabiano likes Andre Brown’s potential — a lot. Who wouldn’t after such a dominant performance against the Raiders? However, one major concern exists for Brown owners the rest of the season. What is it? Fabs also says he likes what Packers WR Jarrett Boykin can bring to the table, regardless of who the Packers have under center. But Jarrett Boykin’s fantasy value is higher in certain […]
Easy on Ingram: I’m taking Mark Ingram’s Week 10 performance with a giant grain of salt since the Cowboys defense seemingly took an early flight out of the Big Easy sometime in the middle of the second quarter (apparently, I was unaware it was official Cowboys team policy that Sean Lee is the only player on this unit permitted to make a tackle). But Ingram had 14 carries for a career-high 145 yards and added a touchdown in Sunday night’s 49-17 thrashing of Dallas. I think this is more likely to be a one-off performance since it was completely out of the blue. Not to mention, check out the run defenses awaiting the Saints over the next month: they host […]
