These 5 underrated wide receivers have elite fantasy football upside

Many offenses cannot support two high end wide receivers, but every year one or two exceptions to this rule emerge. This season, Calvin Ridley and Julio Jones bring enough upside to accomplish this feat. Now entering his second season in the NFL, Ridley should improve on his 92 targets from a season ago.

Allen Robinson is only entering his age-26 season, and comes off the board outside the top 20 wide receivers in most leagues. His limited production occurred due to an injury that caused him to miss three games in 2019. He averaged 7.2 targets per game on a per-game basis, while he also showed the upside for much more.


Why I’m drafting Miles Sanders (and you should, too)

I’m here to dispel the notion that Eagles head coach Doug Pederson prefers a RBBC approach rather than having a workhorse back. Sure, over the last five seasons as a head coach or offensive coordinator, the running back to lead Pederson’s teams in carries averaged 11.1 attempts per game. That’s not good.

But running behind one of the league’s best run-blocking units, and in one of the most prolific offenses, Sanders’ ceiling is unlimited. His ADP at the FFPC remains outside the top-100 picks which is far too low. I have consistently targeted him in the sixth and seventh rounds. In fact, in several cases I have built my draft strategy around knowing I am able to get Sanders in the middle rounds.


The No. 3 wide receivers names you need to know in fantasy football dynasty leagues

Justin Watson is not another “fast in shorts” camp hype maven. He produced at an elite level in college with a 60.3-percent (98th-percentile) College Dominator Rating. Reportedly, Watson is preparing for a slot role in Bruce Arian’s offense.

Matt Nagy has experience using players such as Taylor Gabriel and getting the most from what they are able to do. What he does best is separate. His 1.77 (No. 12) Target Separation will help Mitchell Trubisky, who isn’t known for his accuracy. Gabriel will provide him with much needed easy throws.


These 5 running backs should experience strong touchdown regression this season

Touchdown regression is a good way to spot trap players in fantasy football. Players who score at a high rate relative to their usage should be faded at all costs. Meanwhile, players such as Ezekiel Elliott, who didn’t score enough, should bounce back.

The advanced metrics indicate that backs like Melvin Gordon and Phillip Lindsay are going to score far fewer touchdowns in 2019. On the other hand, Ezekiel Elliott scored 2.4 touchdowns below expectation. He is primed to score more based on his high-leverage usage, making him one of the safest fantasy football picks.


The sexiest, best-value QB-WR stacks in fantasy football

Josh Allen possesses elite rushing ability that provides a safe floor, doesn’t shy away from the deep ball – his 65 attempts ranked No. 13 – and has a legitimate shot at finishing top-5 at the position. But despite that, his ADP is QB20. Allen’s willingness to throw downfield benefits teammate Robert Foster, whose advanced stats and metrics profile suggest he’s primed for a breakout.

A true rushing QB, Cam Newton ranked in the top-five at the position in 2018 with 101 (No. 2) carries, 488 (No. 4) rush yards and four (No. 5) rush TDs. He’s a lock to return top-10 value with QB1 upside. Despite missing the first four games of 2018 after having a procedure done on his heart, Curtis Samuel showed a nose for the end zone. His five receiving TDs ranked second on the team.

The latest training camp news should put to rest any concerns that fantasy gamers have with Parris Campbell. Film grinders pointed to Campbell’s low depth of target as a reason to liken him to a gadget-player, but Frank Reich doesn’t care about highlight-reel watchers.

Last season, Kenyan Drake didn’t command the majority of Miami’s carries, but he did dominate the fantasy points produced from their backfield. Now, early signs are pointing to a committee between Drake and third-year back Kalen Ballage.


The best-value teams to stack in fantasy football leagues

Team stacks have been proven to win people millions of dollars. In fact, 79% of DraftKings “Millionaire Maker” winners have used this strategy. This means you need to find undervalued fantasy QBs and pair them with underrated teammates.

Jameis Winston and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers are primed to exceed value with new head coach Bruce Arians calling the shots. Winston has shown a willingness to hurl the ball deep, finishing top-5 in Air Yards Per Attempt in each of the last three seasons.


Same Faces, New Places: Forecasting Players in New Environments

Jared Cook enjoyed a career year with Derek Carr in the midst of Amari Cooper’s departure and general dysfunction. Cook joins the the Saints who attempted a mere 33.7 (No. 29) pass plays per game last year, Brees had 93 red zone attempts. Guess who had a 26.3-percent red zone target share and an insane 32–percent end zone target share in 2018? None other than The Cook, baby.

Devin Funchess is a great pick in the mid-to-late rounds of redraft and best ball leagues. His spiked weekly touchdown upside is as high, if not higher, than receivers being selected around him such as James Washington, D.K. Metcalf and TreQuan Smith.
