Tomorrow’s Newspaper: Brett Hundley and Waiver Wire Prescience for Week 8

by Ray Marzarella, October 21, 2017

One of the keys to winning consistently in fantasy football is the ability to identify potential breakouts before they happen. Stashing players that would become hot adds with a big game before any of your leaguemates is a winning strategy in any format.

Brett Hundley had a bad game in relief of Aaron Rodgers against the Vikings in Week 6, which scared many owners off of him during this week’s waiver period despite a favorable Week 7 match-up against New Orleans.

Week of the Slot Receiver: Adam Thielen is a Lock

by Conor O'Brien, October 20, 2017

Joe Mixon has 2.1 Yards Created per Carry, No. 7 in the league, and also posts a 30.8 percent Juke Rate (No.11). Mixon is too good, and the Steelers run defense will afford Mixon copious running lanes. 

Thielen is already a target vacuum for the Vikings, averaging a whopping 8.8 targets per game along with a 26.6 percent Target Share. Like Doug Baldwin, Thielen gets a big boost from his time in the slot, where he has spent 53.8 percent of the Vikings snaps this season.

by Minion Army, October 19, 2017

Joe Mixon is the ultimate under-the-radar fantasy football running back buy-low trade candidate based on his advanced stats, metrics and analytics profiles.

Joe Mixon’s metrics align closely with Ezekiel Elliott. On the other hand, his running style reminds scouts of Le’Veon Bell. So if we placed Bell and Elliott in a particle acceleration chamber, out would step Joe Mixon. Whoa.

Dion Lewis is a Top Waiver Wire Add for Fantasy Football in Week 7

by Conor O'Brien, October 18, 2017

Taylor Gabriel has seen his snap count increase dramatically given recent hip and hamstring injuries to Julio Jones and Mohamed Sanu respectively. After playing more than 50 percent of the Falcons offensive snaps just once in the first three games, he has surpassed 80 percent of the team’s snaps in each of their last two games.

Against the Jets, Dion Lewis received over ten touches for the first time all season, and answered with 52 total yards and a touchdown. No player in the league is quite as elusive as Lewis, as he was able to force 7 evaded tackles against the Jets off of 11 touches, and sports a 46.2 percent Juke Rate (No. 6).

by Minion Army, October 15, 2017

Since my great, great, great grandfather arrived on Ellis Island, the NFL’s tight end position has been the most difficult to navigate in fantasy football. Thankfully, we have Austin Seferian-Jenkins, the ultimate phenom tight end based on advanced stats, metrics, and analytics-based player profiles.

by Conor O'Brien, October 14, 2017

In the NFL, winning and losing against division opponents can be the determinant between playoff caliber and mediocrity. As we enter the mid-section of the fantasy season, every point counts. Here is who to start and sit to make sure your team falls on the winning end.

Ask yourself if you’re going to bench any Patriots this week? Certainly Chris Hogan will be in your starting lineup. Hogan is a very fast player as noted by his 102.7 (76th Percentile) Speed Score. Compared to Buster Skrine, who’s lack of speed is the most glaring weakness in his game as highlighted by his 88.2 (28th Percentile) Speed Score.

Crazy Crystal Ball: 3 Insanely Bold Fantasy Football Predictions for 2017

by Zach Krueger, October 13, 2017

We’ve seen their breakouts, and watched over them closely since their burst onto the scene, and are now ready to identify these high-upside candidates. If you’re looking for that player to plug in as a weekly starter for long-term fantasy success in 2017, you’ve come to the right place.

With a history of shouldering a massive workload at the college level, it is conceivable that Aaron Jones commands a significant percentage of early-down work carries between the 20’s and becomes the Ameer Adbullah to Ty Montgomery’s Theo Riddick in the Green Bay offense for the remainder of 2017.

If Aaron Jones is the Real Deal, What About Ty Montgomery?

by Minion Army, October 12, 2017

Through four years, Aaron Jones dominated collegiate defenders in all phases. He posted 4,760 total yards, 71 receptions, and 33 touchdown during his career, closing out his final season with an exceptional 47-percent (97th percentile) College Dominator Rating on PlayerProfiler.com.

Ty Montgomery has never experienced a full season of primary back touches, and with each passing day, his grip on the starting job becomes more tenuous. If Jones continues to excel in his midseason audition by running efficiently and avoiding turnovers, he should carve out a significant role in the second half of the season.
