JuJu Smith-Schuster Made Martavis Bryant Disappear

For his next trick, JuJu Smith-Schuster will make Martavis Bryant disappear! Since October 1st, he is playing more snaps and running more routes than Bryant… at 20 years old. 

As it turns out, you can’t downgrade from Brandin Cooks to Ted Ginn, and from Jimmy Graham to Coby Fleener, and continue to post 20 fantasy points a game. Things don’t get better for Drew Brees as the Saints’ next five opponents have top-15 pass defenses.

Aaron Rodgers’ Injury Torpedoed Jordy Nelson and the other Green Bay Receivers in Fantasy Football

Aaron Rodgers’ broken collarbone was the worst injury of week 6, because it torpedoed the entire Green Bay offense from Davante Adams to Ty Montgomery. 

What about Brett Hundley? Hundley’s prospect profile is impressive. Precocious and efficient college passer with great athleticism, but his ceiling is Ryan Tannehill with wheels. More likely, as a late round pick coming in with no experience, fast Trevor Siemian is the most realistic comp.

Tomorrow’s Newspaper: Brett Hundley and Waiver Wire Prescience for Week 8

One of the keys to winning consistently in fantasy football is the ability to identify potential breakouts before they happen. Stashing players that would become hot adds with a big game before any of your leaguemates is a winning strategy in any format.

Brett Hundley had a bad game in relief of Aaron Rodgers against the Vikings in Week 6, which scared many owners off of him during this week’s waiver period despite a favorable Week 7 match-up against New Orleans.

Week of the Slot Receiver: Adam Thielen is a Lock

Joe Mixon has 2.1 Yards Created per Carry, No. 7 in the league, and also posts a 30.8 percent Juke Rate (No.11). Mixon is too good, and the Steelers run defense will afford Mixon copious running lanes. 

Thielen is already a target vacuum for the Vikings, averaging a whopping 8.8 targets per game along with a 26.6 percent Target Share. Like Doug Baldwin, Thielen gets a big boost from his time in the slot, where he has spent 53.8 percent of the Vikings snaps this season.

Joe Mixon is the Ideal Buy-low Candidate in Fantasy Football

Joe Mixon is the ultimate under-the-radar fantasy football running back buy-low trade candidate based on his advanced stats, metrics and analytics profiles.

Joe Mixon’s metrics align closely with Ezekiel Elliott. On the other hand, his running style reminds scouts of Le’Veon Bell. So if we placed Bell and Elliott in a particle acceleration chamber, out would step Joe Mixon. Whoa.

Dion Lewis is a Top Waiver Wire Add for Fantasy Football in Week 7

Taylor Gabriel has seen his snap count increase dramatically given recent hip and hamstring injuries to Julio Jones and Mohamed Sanu respectively. After playing more than 50 percent of the Falcons offensive snaps just once in the first three games, he has surpassed 80 percent of the team’s snaps in each of their last two games.

Against the Jets, Dion Lewis received over ten touches for the first time all season, and answered with 52 total yards and a touchdown. No player in the league is quite as elusive as Lewis, as he was able to force 7 evaded tackles against the Jets off of 11 touches, and sports a 46.2 percent Juke Rate (No. 6).

DON’T LAUGH: Dwayne Washington Is Very Stash-worthy In Fantasy Football Dynasty Leagues

Despite a lackluster rookie season, Dwayne Washington checks many of the boxes we look for in a sleeper. Despite being viewed as a passing down back, he has the requisite size to be a bell-cow in the NFL.

Washington is 6-1, 223-pounds, and only 23.4 years of age, Washington is a younger, bigger, and more athletic version of Javorius Allen.

Wheels up for Austin Seferian-Jenkins in Fantasy Football

Since my great, great, great grandfather arrived on Ellis Island, the NFL’s tight end position has been the most difficult to navigate in fantasy football. Thankfully, we have Austin Seferian-Jenkins, the ultimate phenom tight end based on advanced stats, metrics, and analytics-based player profiles.

ASJ has been the Jets most efficient receiver through five week. His 24.1-percent Target Share is No. 4 among NFL tight ends and his 33.3-percent red zone target share is No. 3 in the league.

Week 6 Locks and Traps: The Return of Marshawn to Fantasy Football Relevance

In the NFL, winning and losing against division opponents can be the determinant between playoff caliber and mediocrity. As we enter the mid-section of the fantasy season, every point counts. Here is who to start and sit to make sure your team falls on the winning end.

Ask yourself if you’re going to bench any Patriots this week? Certainly Chris Hogan will be in your starting lineup. Hogan is a very fast player as noted by his 102.7 (76th Percentile) Speed Score. Compared to Buster Skrine, who’s lack of speed is the most glaring weakness in his game as highlighted by his 88.2 (28th Percentile) Speed Score.

Crazy Crystal Ball: 3 Insanely Bold Fantasy Football Predictions for 2017

We’ve seen their breakouts, and watched over them closely since their burst onto the scene, and are now ready to identify these high-upside candidates. If you’re looking for that player to plug in as a weekly starter for long-term fantasy success in 2017, you’ve come to the right place.

With a history of shouldering a massive workload at the college level, it is conceivable that Aaron Jones commands a significant percentage of early-down work carries between the 20’s and becomes the Ameer Adbullah to Ty Montgomery’s Theo Riddick in the Green Bay offense for the remainder of 2017.
