Week 17 fantasy feedback

» The likelihood of Peyton Manning throwing 55 touchdowns next season is pretty small. Any chance we could be talking about Drew Brees as the top fantasy QB drafted in 2014? Either way, you’re still staying away from any Saints WRs. » Plenty of people will look at LeSean McCoy or Jamaal Charles as the top pick, which is understandable. But someone will likely get Matt Forte with the third or fourth pick in their draft and could come up on the potential 2014 fantasy MVP. » It’s not always easy to tell which of Colin Kaepernick‘s pass-catchers will see the bulk of the targets, but one thing is for certain. With Michael Crabtree back, Kaepernick looks more like the QB that many took a chance on as […]

Week 16 fantasy feedback

» In a matchup of top rookie running backs, both Eddie Lacy and Le’Veon Bell have acquitted themselves well. The difference is that Lacy has found the end zone twice. But both have bright futures. » Ryan Mathews needs to be considered a low-end RB2 heading into next fantasy season. He’s run hard all season, stayed healthy and curbed his fumbling problems. He’s the back everyone thought he’d be coming out of college. » Calvin Johnson was banged-up coming into today’s ballgame and his production seems to have suffered accordingly. Of course, it doesn’t help that Matthew Stafford has struggled today. » The Belitricks are strong today. All four Patriots running backs have at least one attempt so far today.  » It looks like early season Carson Palmer […]

Week 15 fantasy feedback

» Rashad Jennings will be a name to remember next fall when it comes to draft time. He had another nice day with 91 rushing yards and two touchdowns. He’s also made Darren McFadden expendable in Oakland. » More on Jamaal Charles. He posted all of his 51.50 fantasy points on just 16 touches — eight rushes, eight receptions. » It was a DeAngelo Williams day for the Panthers. Don’t you just get the feeling that he could have been that type of back more consistently if the Panthers had just committed to him all along? » As much as Jamaal Charles is killing people’s playoff hopes, so is Drew Brees. But for completely different reasons. » After a slow start, Matt Flynn is starting to […]

Week 14 fantasy feedback

» The list of players who are producing long after everyone has given up on them can now add Hakeem Nicks. The mostly-disappointing wideout had 135 receiving yards in the loss today. No other Giant had more than 42 (the equally-disappointing Victor Cruz). » No matter the matchup, it’s hard to count out Frank Gore. He didn’t score a touchdown, but the veteran finished with 110 yards — including a big 51-yard run late in the ballgame. » Speaking of players having nice late-season totals, Justin Hunter had another big day. He’s a name to keep an eye on as you start thinking about next season. Although a Week 16 matchup against the Jags could make him an interesting prospect — if you’re fortunate enough […]

Week 13 fantasy feedback

» Michael Crabtree had one big catch in Sunday’s game, but his speed was lacking. It’s hard to think he’s going to be a major fantasy factor in your league’s postseason. » It was all set up for Andy Dalton to have a great day against a shaky Chargers secondary. And he gave you 10.50 points. That was the best matchup he has for the next few weeks, it’s time to move on from Red. » Eric Decker is feast-or-famine. Not surprisingly, he’s eating well just a few days after Thanksgiving. » Well hello there, Roddy White. It sure would’ve been nice to see a little more of this throughout the season. » Well hello there, C.J. Spiller. It sure would’ve been nice to see a […]

Week 10 fantasy feedback

» Case Keenum might not be winning real games, but he’s helping fantasy owners. Keenum came up just shy of 20 points this week and faces the Raiders and Jaguars (twice) over the next four weeks. » And on a day when the passing game wasn’t working, it seems strange that Frank Gore would only have 16 carries — especially when he averaged more than 5 yards per carry. » Once again, the absence of Vernon Davis impacts the production of Colin Kaepernick. The QB wasn’t able to run against the Panthers and had no one to throw the football to consistently. Credit Carolina for making things tough with a fierce pass rush, but San Francisco’s glaring lack of weapons once Davis left the […]

Week 9 fantasy feedback

» Death, taxes and Darren McFadden suffering an injury. Except this week the handcuff to have wasn’t Marcel Reece, it was Rashad Jennings. With the Giants on tap, it’s time to grab Jennings off the waiver wire. » Le’Veon Bell is putting together another nice day. He’s over 100 scrimmage yards with a mixture of runs and receptions. It reinforces the value of backs who serve multiple functions. » There were 44 years between quarterbacks throwing seven TD passes in a game. Now we’ve gone eight weeks. No one … and I mean no one saw Nick Foles coming today. And it looks like as long as Foles is the QB, Riley Cooper is his No. 1 target. » The Seahawks defense hasn’t looked quite so formidable […]

Week 8 fantasy feedback

» Just when you thought it was safe to start Robert Griffin III again, he struggles mightily against the Broncos defense. Next week, he faces the Chargers who have played better against QBs in their past two games. » Another nice week for Harry Douglas. He didn’t score a touchdown, but finished with 121 receiving yards. Even when Roddy White gets back, it’s going to be hard to bench Douglas. » When Alfred Morris scored a third quarter touchdown, we thought #Shanahanigans wouldn’t come into play. Until Washington stopped giving the ball to a back who is averaging 6.0 yards per carry for the day. » This isn’t your big brother’s Raiders defense. This year’s group has played respectable football. And if they have the […]

Week 7 fantasy feedback

» Case Keenum acquitted himself fairly well today in Kansas City. But injuries to Arian Foster and Duane Brown are reasons for concern going forward. Fortunately, the Texans have a bye next week. » It’s been feast or famine for Anquan Boldin owners this season. They ate fairly well today. » It was refreshing to see Le’Veon Bell produce against a Ravens defense that has been improving steadily since Week 1. The Steelers have found their primary RB, which is equally good news for fantasy owners. » After staying away from Ray Rice in recent weeks, it seemed a near certainty that the Ravens would feature him against a Steelers defense that’s struggled against the run. He only has 12 carries for 38 yards. It’s starting […]

Week 6 fantasy feedback

» That big game by Larry Fitzgerald certainly came out of nowhere. But let’s not overlook that 13.50 of his 16.10 points came on one play. Hard to count on that type of thing happening every week. Even less likely it happens against Seattle next Thursday night. » There are two legitimate fantasy options in the 49ers offense — Frank Gore and Vernon Davis. Everything else is a crapshoot. Good luck next week against the Titans. » Jimmy Graham getting shut out is going to hurt a ton of fantasy owners this week. Graham leaving the game with an injury could hurt even more. The good news is the Saints have a bye next week for their star TE to get healthy. » It […]

Week 5 fantasy feedback

» For all of the attention focused on Peyton Manning, let’s not overlook Knowshon Moreno who rushed for 93 yards and a TD while adding another 57 receiving yards. He’s taking control of the No. 1 spot in the Broncos backfield. » He might frustrate Dallas Cowboys fans, but a game like today shows why Tony Romo remains a quality fantasy option. » Chris Johnson scored a long touchdown, but there was little that he did today to excite fantasy owners. He might be a bench option next week with the Titans travelling to Seattle. » Nick Foles played well today, but don’t get too excited. That was against the Giants. If he starts next week, it will be against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. » […]

Week 4 fantasy feedback

» Looking ahead to Week 5 … MIN, PIT, TB and WAS are all on byes. That takes out a number of quality RBs (Peterson, Bell, Doug Martin and Morris), but won’t be quite so hard on fantasy QB depth charts. Robert Griffin III is the only signal-caller of any real significance that will be missing next week. » Reports of Antonio Gates’ fantasy demise have been greatly exaggerated. He’s scored double-digit fantasy points in each of the past three weeks and gets to face the Raiders next week. Time to upgrade him! » Apparently not everyone can take advantage of Washington’s terrible defense. Thanks for teaching us that valuable lesson, Matt Flynn. » Justin Hunter might not catch a lot of passes. But when he […]

Week 2 fantasy feedback

» Not really sure what to make of the Giants from a fantasy perspective. They either can’t run it or just don’t want to (not sure which), making David Wilson a non-factor. But Eli Manning has seven interceptions in two weeks. Besides Victor Cruz and Hakeem Nicks, there are no sure things on this squad. » Very quietly Rashard Mendenhall had a nice day for the Cardinals. He has a combined 21.80 fantasy points through the first two weeks and is turning him into a matchup-based flex option. » Things that stink: old gym socks, bad cheese, the Jacksonville Jaguars offense. » The Broncos running back rotation might be working itself out. If today’s any indication, Ronnie Hillman isn’t really involved. I still wouldn’t trust any […]
