Week 10 Fantasy Football Waiver Wire: Let The J.J. Nelson Arrow Fly

The waiver wire hunt ends with J.J. Nelson. The RotoUnderworld Team provides ten players, including Nelson, to target across fantasy football formats.

The SPARQ-y DuJuan Harris is an athletic player, who catches passes and was recently productive after an increase in opportunity. It is great to be alive in a ZeroRB world.

Tomorrow’s Newspaper: DuJuan Harris, Brian Quick, and Week 10 Waiver Wire Prescience

We offer four Sunday morning fantasy football pick-ups based on advanced stats & metrics profiles. Add Jay Cutler, DuJuan Harris, Brian Quick and Lance Kendricks before they become next week’s waiver targets.

Brian Quick represents an ideal efficiency and schedule-driven pickup. A long-time favorite of the metrics community, whose efficiency metrics are at the top of the WR position, Quick has been steadily working his way into weekly flex consideration with four double digit games on the year.

Contrived Contrarian GPP DFS Plays of Week 9: Todd Gurley & Amari Cooper

Play Blake Bortles in week 9 against Kansas City’s good-not-great pass defense (-7.6-percent DVOA) in the first week that fantasy experts are allowing Blake Bortles’ unsightly aesthetic to actually influence his fantasy football ranking.

Amari Cooper headlined week 8’s winning Millionaire Maker lineup on DraftKings.com. This week, Cooper’s match-up is significantly more challenging, but his tournament-winning upside is still present.

DFS Dreamers & Fantasy Streamers: Contrarian GPP and Deep Sleeper Plays for Week 9

Not only is Colin Kaepernick the top quarterback streamer this week at home against the woeful New Orleans Saints defense, he’s also a top-10 play at his position in the Player Profiler Weekly Player Rankings.

Aside from a big performance against the 49ers back in Week 3, Christine Michael has been lackluster in gaining yardage. This matchup against the Buffalo Bills is far from ideal, but the likelihood for double-digit touches makes Prosise more than serviceable in a streaming setting given the surprising availability.

Week 9 Fantasy Football Waiver Running Back Rescue Squad: Charcandrick West & CJ Prosise

Fade the nicknames, just add Charcandrick West. The RotoUnderworld Team provides ten players, including West, to target across fantasy football formats.

Now that Bruce Arians has placed J.J. Nelson on the the “starter” pedestal, show him your respect. The ultimate burner, Nelson ran a 4.28 40 Yard Dash (100th percentile), and over the last two games, Nelson has received a healthy 19 targets.

Melvin Gordon is NOT an Obvious Sell-high Candidate in Fantasy Football

The fact that Philip Rivers is Melvin Gordon’s quarterback matters a lot. If you think that doesn’t matter, look at the season Lamar Miller is having with Brock Osweiler, or Todd Gurley with Case Keenum. In fact, the Houston Texas as a team are tied with Melvin Gordon in total offensive touchdowns.

The second running back the Chargers have selected in the first round over the past 5 years, San Diego is clearly pining for the next LaDainian Tomlinson, and while Gordon is not LaDainian Tomlinson, he did post above-average metrics across the board, and combined with elite college production and guaranteed NFL opportunity.

Tomorrow’s Newspaper: Jared Goff, CJ Prosise, and Week 9 Waiver Wire Prescience

We offer four Sunday morning fantasy football pick-ups based on advanced stats & metrics profiles. Add Jared Goff, C.J. Prosise, Kenny Stills and Ladarius Green before they become next week’s waiver targets.

Aside from having college production and measurables worthy of making him the draft’s top selection, Jared Goff would benefit from having the sixth-friendliest upcoming fantasy schedule for the QB position, a recipe for a profitable late-season QB streamer.

Devontae Booker: DFS Free Squares, Redraft Handcuffs, and Zero RB Success

Devontae Booker is nestled in the nexus of talent and opportunity. Denver’s new workhorse looks the part of a top-5 fantasy running back for the remainder of the 2016 season with C.J. Anderson on injured reserve.

With zero draft capital investment and below average athleticism, there is little reason to expect Kapri Bibbs or Juwan Thompson to cannibalize significant touches from Booker as the season progresses. It’s all systems go.

DFS Dreamers & Fantasy Streamers: Contrarian GPP and Deep Sleeper Plays for Week 8

Enough talk about “angry” Tom Brady. Now we have angry Ryan Fitzpatrick, who had this to say: “The biggest thing in this game is to have belief in yourself. Because when the owner stops believing in you and the GM stops believing in you and the coaches stop believing in you, sometimes all you have is yourself.”

Ryan Fitzpatrick sounds like a guy ready to shred the Cleveland Browns, owners of the 30th ranked pass DVOA. Every quarterback that has faced the Browns thus far has left the field with multiple touchdowns, including three scores in four of the last five.
