Curtis Samuel & Damien Williams Are Exciting Trade Deadline Waiver Wire Adds

by Conor O'Brien, November 1, 2017

The Jimmy Garoppolo trade between the Patriots and 49ers this week opens up a rare fantasy football occurrence, a fantasy starting caliber quarterback available on the waiver wires mid-season.

Demarcus Robinson may lack speed as evident by his 4.59 second (32nd-percentile) 40-yard dash, but he makes up for it with his length. He has very long arms at 33 inches long (79th-percentile). Combine that with his height and suddenly Robinson has an awesome 10.07 (63rd-percentile) Catch Radius.

Amari Cooper is a the buy-low candidate of a lifetime

by Minion Army, October 31, 2017

With a College Dominator, Breakout Age, and Workout Metrics all above the 90th percentile, Cooper has the greatest prospect profile since Calvin Johnson.

Cooper is top-15 in Target Share, Total Target Distance, and Yards After the Catch this season. The Raiders know he needs the ball in his hands and the team is bending its will to put it there.

Running Back Ships In The Night: Buy Alex Collins, Sell Devonta Freeman

by Minion Army, October 30, 2017

Alex Collins is also dominating Javorius Allen in every efficiency metric, leading John Harbaugh to insinuate that Collins’ share of the Ravens’ running back opportunities will ramp up moving forward. Add Collins where possible.

The Falcons were No. 2 in the NFL in Game Script, the average point differential at any point in any given game, in 2016. This season, Atlanta’s Game Script has dwindled to +0.10 (No. 16 in the NFL). Consequently, Devonta Freeman weekly touches are down year-over-year, and he has now logged 12 or less carries in three-straight games.

Starts and Sits of the Week: Joe Mixon’s Belated Breakout

by Conor O'Brien, October 28, 2017

Chris Thompson has been the best receiving back in the league this year, and he should only continue to roll against Dallas. Thompson has posted 366 (No. 1) receiving yards this season despite only having 23 (No. 15) receptions.

C.J. Anderson will not rebound against the Chiefs this week. Week 6 against Le’Veon Bell remains the only time this season Kansas City has allowed a 100 yard rusher. In four of their seven games this year, the leading rusher against the Chiefs was held to under 60 yards.

4 Under-The-Radar Wide Receivers Set to Explode in Fantasy Football Week 8

by Zach Krueger, October 27, 2017

Despite only being targeted twice, Taylor participated in 30 routes, and has a chance to turn into a Week 8 sleeper against the Chiefs. He has a 98.7 Speed Score (64th-percentile) and a 10.19 Catch Radius (81st-percentile), and looks to be in line for another high Snap Share this week with Sanders expected to miss yet another game.

Where the hell has Willie Snead gone? He returned from suspension only to suffer a hamstring injury, and has one reception for 11 yards on just three targets this season. The good news is, Snead is set to return in Week 8, and plays on a Saints offense that is 12th in the league in pass plays per game.

Sell-low While You Can: 3 Players to Trade Before Their Fantasy Value Hits Zero

by Kieran Cottrill, October 26, 2017

One of the best ways to improve your team is by getting rid of those players who have tempting potential that will not come to fruition this season. If you can accomplish this, you have an advantage over your competitors.

Martavis Bryant is not producing due to the amount of competition he has in Pittsburgh’s offense. He has to compete with the league’s best receiver: Antonio Brown, and the league’s best running back: Le’Veon Bell. Furthermore, the emergence of Juju Smith-Schuster further cannibalizes Bryant’s potential targets.

How can Russell Wilson be the top fantasy football quarterback?

by Minion Army, October 25, 2017

Disregarding his injury-plagued 2016 campaign, Wilson posted a +15.0 or higher Production Premium, a 95.0 or higher passer rating, and a 65.0 or higher Total QBR from 2012 to 2015. Efficient passing combined with tactical scrambling pleases the fantasy gods and raises Wilson’s fantasy football ceiling to 25 or more fantasy points per game.

For the first time since Wilson arrived in Seattle, the team’s play calling is skewing pass-heavy. This season, Wilson’s full potential is being unlocked. The Seahawks are top-10 in Team Pass Plays, Red Zone Attempts, and Deep Ball Attempts.

Win the Waiver Wire by Streaming Zach Miller in Week 8

by Conor O'Brien, October 24, 2017

Darren McFadden has yet to play a snap for the Dallas Cowboys this year, but the team still has a big role in mind. It’s obvious that Ezekiel Elliott will miss time with a suspension at some point this year. If and when Elliott serves a suspension, the Cowboys should lean on McFadden.

The 2017 wide receiver class has been a huge disappointment at the top. Corey Davis, John Ross, and Mike Williams have all failed to produce for their teams throughout the first half of their rookie seasons. One emerging player that may be the saving grace of this receiver class is Steelers rookie JuJu Smith-Schuster.

JuJu Smith-Schuster Made Martavis Bryant Disappear

by Minion Army, October 23, 2017

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

by Minion Army, October 22, 2017

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.
