We offer four Sunday morning fantasy football pick-ups based on advanced stats & metrics profiles. Add Paxton Lynch, Zach Zenner, Chris Conley and Richard Rodgers before they become next week’s waiver targets.

The right pre-waiver stashes can potentially put you way ahead of the competition.

Contrived Contrarian GPP DFS Plays of Week 5

I get it. Denver has the best defense in the NFL. I get it. The Falcons are +4.0 underdogs facing the Broncos on the road, but this “bad match-up” for Devonta Freeman on paper may not be so bad in reality. Denver is actually allowing bigger plays on the ground than through the air.

Whether Eddie Royals is active or inactive, Cameron Meredith is an unknown, deep, deep, deep, deep sleeper with the minimum salary and a tournament-winning best-case scenario fantasy point total in his range of outcomes.

Alshon Jeffery is an Automatic Buy After Kevin White Landed on Injured Reserve

Alshon Jeffery was expected to repeat last season’s high volume, but so far he’s been a letdown. In wake of the Kevin White injury, Jeffery becomes a buy-low candidate moving forward.

While Jeffery has struggled thus far, he has maintained efficiency and his volume should rise again. Undeterred by a new quarterback situation, he will dominate his favorable schedule in 2016.

DFS Dreamers & Fantasy Streamers: Contrarian GPP and Deep Sleeper Plays for Week 5

Before jumping into the suggestions for Week 5 let’s do a quick victory lap for last week’s streamers. If you played these guys you more than likely picked up a win. While these results help to strongly reflect all of the hard work that goes into Player Profiler, it also serves as a very important reminder that the waiver wire is always producing useful options that allow us to avoid having to use players in bad matchups.

Speaking of bad matchups to steer away from, you should absolutely sit Matt Ryan — currently fantasy’s No. 1 player — as he travels to Denver to face the mighty Broncos pass defense. If Cam Newton and Andrew Luck could not exceed 200 passing yards in altitude just how low is the floor for Ryan in this nightmare matchup? I’ll gladly stream Flacco again or pick up Brian Hoyer in favor of Ryan.

Week 5 Fantasy Football Waiver Wire Watch: Robert Woods Target Hog

Robert Woods has target hog tendencies. The RotoUnderworld Team provides ten players, including Woods, to target across fantasy football formats.

In other news, DeAndre Washington continues to outplay Latavius Murray. Washington would be higher on this list except for a painful late game fumble in Week 4.

Tomorrow’s Newspaper: Cody Kessler and Week 5 Waiver Wire Prescience

We offer three Sunday morning fantasy football pick-ups based on advanced stats & metrics profiles. Add Cody Kessler, Bobby Rainey, Adam Humphries and Austin Seferian-Jenkins before they become next week’s waiver targets.

If you can beat the waiver wire rush by a few days and acquire players like these for free, before they have the chance to blow up, it’ll go a long way towards helping you achieve your goals of world domination via the fantasy football medium. The right pre-waiver stashes can potentially put you way ahead of the competition.

Contrived Contrarian GPP DFS Plays of Week 4

The uber-athletic Quincy Enunwa checks a lot of phenom wide receiver boxes. Roll out Enunwa as a contrarian upside play operating in the middle of the field where the Seahawks defense is most vulnerable.

By funneling targets to running backs, Denver has accumulated an RB-friendly +24.0 (no. 25) DVOA against opposing running backs in the passing game this season. Despite the difficult match-up narrative, Charles Sims shows up in the top-12 running backs on PlayerProfiler’s week 4 PPR RB rankings.

DFS Dreamers & Fantasy Streamers: Contrarian GPP and Deep Sleeper Plays for Week 4

It looks like Dez Bryant (knee) won’t make the trip to Santa Clara to face the San Francisco 49ers. His absence instantly puts all of the Dallas wide outs into the streamer conversation. Niners slot man Jimmie Ward (quadriceps) is unlikely to play which is even more good news for Cole Beasley, already the team leader in targets, receptions, and recieving yards. Meanwhile, Terrance Williams caught all four of his targets last week against the Bears for 88 yards, but put the ball on the ground after a 47-yard gainer. If you need to get real deep, check out Brice Butler.

A number of strong values this week will allow DFS players to pay all the way up for Cam Newton at the Falcons. Meanwhile, those looking to save a little bit at quarterback will often find themselves on Cousins hosting the Browns. To get contrarian I’m going all the way down to the minimum with Brian Hoyer. Jay Cutler (finger) was limited in Wednesday’s practice and sat out Thursday, leading one to assume he’s not going to start.

Week 3 Fantasy Football Waiver Wire: Orleans Darkwa Takeover

Orleans Darkwa takeover time. The RotoUnderworld Team provides ten players, including Darkwa, to target across fantasy football formats.

Kenneth Dixon possesses an impressive history of college production. The touchdown maker, Dixon, could provide an impact in the wide open opportunity of the Baltimore backfield.

Tomorrow’s Newspaper: Dexter McCluster and Week 4 Waiver Wire Prescience

Dexter McCluster displayed good efficiency last season, albeit for a different team. Given the unfortunate rash of injuries in San Diego, he needed to be signed as insurance. Melvin Gordon fits the mold of an effective three-down workhorse, but McCluster’s 98th-percentile College Target Share will ensure that he at least contributes in the passing game.

Jack Doyle’s 13th-ranked Hog Rate (targets per snap ratio) of 10.6-percent is promising because it shows us that the team is utilizing him when he’s on the field. Sure both of his TDs in Week 1 came after Allen was knocked out of the game, after scoring a TD of his own. But he’s proven to be a big part of this offense in the season’s early going, seeing his Snap Share and Target Share increase from Week 1.
