Tomorrow’s Newspaper: Boston Scott and waiver wire prescience for 2019

With the 2018 fantasy football season drawing near its conclusion, the focus of Tomorrow’s Newspaper will shift towards dynasty leagues. There isn’t much time left for an end-of-bench stash player to pay off in redraft leagues. Everyone you’ve been stashing should either be in your starting lineup or have a way to get there if one of your starters goes down this week.

With Boston Scott having been signed off of the Saints’ practice squad less than a week ago, the odds that he helps win you a fantasy championship this year are next to nonexistent. But a player with his kind of athletic profile should always be stashed when they end up on an analytics-based team like the Eagles.


Lineup Makers for Daily Fantasy – Week 15 Edition

Washington QB Josh Johnson has the athletic ability to post RB rushing stat lines. He is coming off of a top-5 QB week and is priced as a bottom-tier player. He has a high floor given his legs, and the Jaguars are the worst defense at containing running QBs.

Kenneth Dixon hasn’t had the ability to show off his all-purpose skillset at the pro level. His time is here. Dixon stole Gus Edwards goal line work last week and offers a passing game element that Edwards could only dream of. He is a more elusive runner, a better pass catcher, and a more complete player. Fire him up before his price skyrockets next week.

Joe Flacco will not play another down for the Ravens. Saquon Barkley surpassed Todd Gurley as the best running back in fantasy football.

Aaron Jones is not elite… yet. Can David Johnson be saved?


Tomorrow’s Newspaper: Daurice Fountain and waiver wire prescience for week 14

Of all the receivers on the Colts roster, fifth-round rookie Daurice Fountain best fits the mold of a viable number two option behind T.Y. Hilton. Fountain is the clubhouse leader with a 139.3 (99th-percentile) Burst Score, a 10.32 (95th-percentile) Catch Radius and a 111.5 (70th-percentile) SPARQ-x score.

Even though Ryan Switzer hasn’t lit up fantasy box scores, he looks to be sliding into a role that best fits his skill-set. He has a 10.77 (93rd-percentile) Agility Score, which is a trait that we love to see in our slot receivers.


Lineup Makers for Daily Fantasy – Week 14 Edition

Courtland Sutton will add intermediate and short targets to his repertoire in the wake of Emmanuel Sanders’ season-ending injury. This projected target bump will allow him to smash value based on his $5600 price tag on FanDuel this week.

Jeff Wilson came out of nowhere and received 23 touches last week. With Matt Breida officially ruled out, Wilson will repeat his volume and possibly exceed it. He will only compete with Alfred Morris for ground work while he secures all of the passing volume. Wilson saw nine targets last week, a number that is easily repeatable against the Broncos defense.


Jaylen Samuels is a Screaming Add in Fantasy Football Leagues

Jaylen Samuels is the perfect add for the season-long fantasy gamer who has it all. Conner’s athleticism and collegiate production, coupled with Conner’s injury (ankle) and the extreme fantasy point scoring potential of Pittsburgh’s top-5 offense, make Samuels a must-add in all fantasy football leagues. 

Curtis Samuel’s recent spike in target share, snaps, production and red zone usage signal a player rising to relevance for the fantasy playoffs. He’s a priority waiver wire add for Week 14.
