December Dynasty Buy-Low: Jerick McKinnon, DeAndre Hopkins, and Jordan Matthews

Jerick McKinnon and DeAndre Hopkins are a few players from our list of dynasty buy-lows who were betrayed by their situation in 2016. Advanced statistics and metrics show they could improve on their 2016 performances, so the time to buy is now.

DeAndre Hopkins has the most deceiving Catch Radius in the NFL. Though 9.99 is technically below the 50th-percentile, Hopkins’ innate strength at the catch point and Spiderman-like hands enhance his ability to secure wayward throws. Hopkins is simply too talented to assume that his 2016 statistics are the new norm.

Dreamers & Fantasy Streamers – DFS GPP & Deep Sleeper Plays for Week 16: Lockett Is The Key

The quintessential PlayerProfiler darling of 2016 is averaging 8.5 targets in Matt Barkley’s four starts. Josh Norman is set to tangle with Alshon Jeffery on the outside while Meredith continues to be Barkley’s safety valve receiver.

Last week, the Bears gave up 85 yards to Jared Cook. Assuming Vernon Davis is the starter, Davis is a terrific value in DFS for an ugly main slate for the tight end position.

Tomorrow’s Newspaper: Darius Jackson and Waiver Wire Prescience for Week 16 and Beyond

We offer four Sunday morning fantasy football pick-ups based on advanced stats & metrics profiles. Add Darius Jackson, Daniel Lasco, MyCole Pruitt and Jerell Adams in dynasty and/or keeper leagues.

Though it’s easy to dismiss Daniel Lasco because he’s a seventh-round pick, you can’t dismiss his athletic profile. Even if his NFL future is strictly as a third-down back, that’s likely to be a pretty valuable position in the high-octane Saints offense for at least a few more seasons with Drew Brees at the helm.

Dreamers & Fantasy Streamers – DFS GPP & Deep Sleeper Plays for Week 15: Get Kenneth Farrow or Die Trying

Yet in despite of this amazing opportunity in the fantasy playoffs, Farrow is still available in half of Yahoo and ESPN public leagues. Friends, this is a top-10 running back this week in the PlayerProfiler Weekly Player Rankings and a must play in DFS.

Jerick McKinnon is suddenly an interesting contrarian option this week against the Indianapolis Colts, who last week gave up more than 190 rushing yards to the Houston Texans four-man backfield.

Kenneth Farrow: The Fantasy Football Value Play of the Year and DFS Free Square RB

Beyond the 55 rushing yards, Kenneth Farrow added 6 receptions for 23 yards on 6 targets equaled the most receptions by a Charger this season. At an 84.6-percent Opportunity Share, Farrow was basically playing the Melvin Gordon bell cow role.

Kenneth Farrow is a capable NFL running back who will be able to replicate Melvin Gordon’s production in a good matchup on Sunday. Farrow is a free square RB in all fantasy football formats for week 15.

Tomorrow’s Newspaper: Shane Vereen, Week 15 Waiver Wire Prescience and Beyond

We offer four Sunday morning fantasy football pick-ups based on advanced stats & metrics profiles. Add Robert Griffin, Shane Vereen, Seth Roberts and Dion Sims in dynasty and/or keeper leagues.

The odds that Shane Vereen becomes a league-winning fantasy pick in 2016 are slim, but he’s a great player to stash for next season where applicable. Rashad Jennings and Paul Perkins are not the Giants’ long-term answer at running back, and Vereen’s skill-set is too valuable for the Giants not to keep him heavily involved in the offense.

DFS Dreamers & Fantasy Streamers: Corey Coleman’s Rebirth and Contrarian GPP & Deep Sleeper Plays for Week 14

Joe Flacco is currently eighth among the leaders in passing yards. Even after throwing four touchdowns a week ago, Flacco has only 15 passing scores to show for all of his efforts. Positive touchdown regression should continue in week 14.

Corey Coleman is an interesting boom-or-bust snow game option being reunited with fellow Baylor alum Robert Griffin III making his first start since Week 1.

Dynasty League Christmas List: Buy Keenan Allen, C.J. Prosise, and Malcolm Mitchell

Keenan Allen, C.J. Prosise, and Malcolm Mitchell are just a few players from our Dynasty Christmas List, compiled using advanced statistics and metric profiles from PlayerProfiler.com.

Keenan Allen averaged a ridiculous 11.1 Targets Per Game, was ridiculously productive, averaging 20.3 Fantasy Points Per Game (No. 6), and will continue to catch passes from Philip Rivers, one of the best quarterbacks in the NFL.

Week 14 Fantasy Football Waiver Wire: A Star is Born in Malcolm Mitchell

The RotoUnderworld Team provides ten players to target across fantasy football formats, including the man with the iron elbow, Malcolm Mitchell.

Nestled nicely in the Jeremy Maclin/Reggie Wayne archetype, Malcolm Mitchell has delivered a three week surge (19.8, 21.2 and 16.2 fantasy points) like a lightning bolt from the fantasy gods.

Tomorrow’s Newspaper: Matt Barkley, Josh Hill, and Week 14 Waiver Wire Prescience

We offer four Sunday morning fantasy football pick-ups based on advanced stats & metrics profiles. Add Matt Barkley, Rex Burkhead, Dontrelle Inman and Josh Hill before they become next week’s waiver targets.

Coming into the week, Matt Barkley was strictly a match-up play against a 49ers defense letting up the third most fantasy points above the mean per game to opposing QBs. With the news that Jay Cutler will undergo season-ending shoulder surgery, Barkley can now be held for the remainder of the season.
