DeShone Kizer is the heir to Carson Wentz, the NFL’s next DGAF gunslinger. Kizer has already thrown 65 deep balls, with impressive accuracy, at just 21-years old.

At Miami, David Njoku posted the most mind-blowing stat in college football last year…. 11 yards after the catch per reception. This guy looks like he was made in a lab to be a more dynamic Travis Kelce, if that’s even possible.

by Conor O'Brien, December 10, 2017

Samaje Perine has quietly consolidated control in the Washington backfield over the past few weeks. With Rob Kelley and Chris Thompson both landing on injured reserve with leg injuries, Perine was handed the reigns and responded with back to back 120+ yard games in weeks 11 and 12.

As the current No. 1 wideout in San Francisco, Marquise Goodwin’s prospects now look totally changed ever since Jimmy Garoppolo entered the fold. Goodwin is a big play game breaker capable of propelling you to the fantasy football championship based on his elite workout metrics.

by Zach Krueger, December 9, 2017

Zay Jones is seeing a significant increase in targets over the last several weeks, and the Bills facing an injury-ravaged Colts secondary, this could be the week Jones owners have been waiting for. If you’re looking for a wide receiver with a high floor to round out your playoff roster this week, Jones may be that player you are seeking.

Over the last two weeks, Golladay averaged an 80-percent snap share and 25 pass routes. The Lions offense ranks No. 7 the league with 39 pass attempts per game. Tampa Bay has already allowed over 500(!) total PPR fantasy to opposing wide receivers, last in the league by a wide margin, and should continue to struggle this week against the Lions.

by Minion Army, December 8, 2017

Adam Thielen is suddenly one the league’s best receivers. After a hyper-efficient 2016, he has been efficient once again this season, even in the face of huge volume. Thielen is the only NFL receiver with 5 or more receptions in each game this season.

Case Keenum looks like his belongs in a starting role. Check out the advanced completion percentage metrics. Keenum is effective in every facet of the game. He’s excellent on play fakes and completes close to 45-percent of his passes 20 or more yards downfield.

Why NFL field stretchers are coming on strong down the stretch

by Minion Army, December 5, 2017

When the Dolphins feed Jarvis Landry, they got blown out. When Miami goes downfield to Kenny Stills, they’re competitive. Stills runs a 4.39. Landry runs a 4.65. Bottom line: When Stills is the focal point of an offense, good things happen.
Olympic sprinter Marquise Goodwin finally has a quarterback capable of throwing downfield. Goodwin is one of the most impressive athletes in the NFL. Sure enough, Goodwin is rewarding fantasy gamers with a need for speed.

Which fantasy football running backs and wide receivers are absolute locks in week 13?

by Conor O'Brien, December 3, 2017

Cooper Kupp is the most prolific wide receiver in college football history. Dominant college production combined with a 10.83 (88th percentile) Agility Score, Kupp looks the part of the quintessential high volume slot receiver. Kupp has been a target magnet at the NFL level and his target dominance should continue against the Cardinals this week.

The excitement is palpable. After three years, the electrifying Josh Gordon is returning to the NFL. While is still young and has plenty of potential left, don’t expect him to walk in and be the guy who had back to back 200 yard games in 2013.

by Zach Krueger, December 2, 2017

Could this be the week that Jordy Nelson finally looks like the receiver he was sans Brett Hundley? Who emerges for the Raiders in a week without Amari Cooper and Michael Crabtree?

Taywan Taylor looks the part of an elite slot receiver with his 4.50 40-yard dash time (67th-percentile) and 10.78 Agility Score (92nd-percentile), Taylor has a chance to take advantage of a porous Texans pass defense that is stout against the run.

by Conor O'Brien, November 30, 2017

With Jimmy Garoppolo’s recent ascension to the starter in San Francisco, the entire 49ers offensive supporting cast gets a boost to their stock. One guy who has an intriguing level of potential is rookie slot receiver Trent Taylor.
