Bears WR Battle Royal: Cameron Meredith, Alshon Jeffery & Eddie Royal

The Bears wide receiver corps has one of the easiest schedules going forward, highlighted by games against Green Bay, Tampa Bay, Detroit, and Washington. With notable performances from Cameron Meredith, Alshon Jeffery, and Eddie Royal already, we break down all three and their fantasy outlook for the rest of the season.

While Cameron Meredith was the fantasy football play-of-the-week for NFL week 5, Alshon Jeffery and Eddie Royal offer more predictable production at depressed current prices across fantasy football formats.

DFS Dreamers & Fantasy Streamers: Contrarian GPP and Deep Sleeper Plays for Week 6

In the mind of most fantasy football owners Will Fuller is running circles around Hopkins. That’s simply not so. Hopkins has two more targets, two more receptions, one more touchdown, and only trails the speedy rookie by 44 receiving yards.

The name that keeps screaming at me in DFS is DeAndre Hopkins. Back in Week 1, Hopkins went for $8,800 on DraftKings, and his salary is down to $7,700 for week 6.

Week 6 Fantasy Football Waiver Wire: Dion Lewis Secret RB1

Say it with me, Dion Lewis RB1. The RotoUnderworld Team provides ten players, including Lewis, to target across fantasy football formats.

Cameron Meredith > Kevin White. With White injured and no longer able to imitate a bottomless void of illegitimate targets, Meredith immediately stepped in and commanded a 29.3% Target Share delivering 130 yards of production.

Tomorrow’s Newspaper: Chris Conley and Week 6 Waiver Wire Prescience

We offer four Sunday morning fantasy football pick-ups based on advanced stats & metrics profiles. Add Paxton Lynch, Zach Zenner, Chris Conley and Richard Rodgers before they become next week’s waiver targets.

If you can beat the waiver wire rush by a few days and acquire players like these for free, before they have the chance to blow up, it’ll go a long way towards helping you achieve your goals of world domination via the fantasy football medium. The right pre-waiver stashes can potentially put you way ahead of the competition.

Contrived Contrarian GPP DFS Plays of Week 5

I get it. Denver has the best defense in the NFL. I get it. The Falcons are +4.0 underdogs facing the Broncos on the road, but this “bad match-up” for Devonta Freeman on paper may not be so bad in reality. Denver is actually allowing bigger plays on the ground than through the air.

Whether Eddie Royals is active or inactive, Cameron Meredith is an unknown, deep, deep, deep, deep sleeper with the minimum salary and a tournament-winning best-case scenario fantasy point total in his range of outcomes.

Alshon Jeffery is an Automatic Buy After Kevin White Landed on Injured Reserve

Alshon Jeffery was expected to repeat last season’s high volume, but so far he’s been a letdown. In wake of the Kevin White injury, Jeffery becomes a buy-low candidate moving forward.

While Jeffery has struggled thus far, he has maintained efficiency and his volume should rise again. Undeterred by a new quarterback situation, he will dominate his favorable schedule in 2016.

DFS Dreamers & Fantasy Streamers: Contrarian GPP and Deep Sleeper Plays for Week 5

Before jumping into the suggestions for Week 5 let’s do a quick victory lap for last week’s streamers. If you played these guys you more than likely picked up a win. While these results help to strongly reflect all of the hard work that goes into Player Profiler, it also serves as a very important reminder that the waiver wire is always producing useful options that allow us to avoid having to use players in bad matchups.

Speaking of bad matchups to steer away from, you should absolutely sit Matt Ryan — currently fantasy’s No. 1 player — as he travels to Denver to face the mighty Broncos pass defense. If Cam Newton and Andrew Luck could not exceed 200 passing yards in altitude just how low is the floor for Ryan in this nightmare matchup? I’ll gladly stream Flacco again or pick up Brian Hoyer in favor of Ryan.

Week 5 Fantasy Football Waiver Wire Watch: Robert Woods Target Hog

Robert Woods has target hog tendencies. The RotoUnderworld Team provides ten players, including Woods, to target across fantasy football formats.

In other news, DeAndre Washington continues to outplay Latavius Murray. Washington would be higher on this list except for a painful late game fumble in Week 4.

Tomorrow’s Newspaper: Cody Kessler and Week 5 Waiver Wire Prescience

We offer three Sunday morning fantasy football pick-ups based on advanced stats & metrics profiles. Add Cody Kessler, Bobby Rainey, Adam Humphries and Austin Seferian-Jenkins before they become next week’s waiver targets.

If you can beat the waiver wire rush by a few days and acquire players like these for free, before they have the chance to blow up, it’ll go a long way towards helping you achieve your goals of world domination via the fantasy football medium. The right pre-waiver stashes can potentially put you way ahead of the competition.

Contrived Contrarian GPP DFS Plays of Week 4

The uber-athletic Quincy Enunwa checks a lot of phenom wide receiver boxes. Roll out Enunwa as a contrarian upside play operating in the middle of the field where the Seahawks defense is most vulnerable.

By funneling targets to running backs, Denver has accumulated an RB-friendly +24.0 (no. 25) DVOA against opposing running backs in the passing game this season. Despite the difficult match-up narrative, Charles Sims shows up in the top-12 running backs on PlayerProfiler’s week 4 PPR RB rankings.
