Dynasty Market Movers – Report 1

by Steve Smith, September 24, 2022

After two games, Curtis Samuel has 15 receptions (No. 5) on 20 targets (No. 14) for 133 yards (No. 23) and 2 TDs (No. 7). This has translated to 21.1 (No. 9) fantasy points per game. The Commanders’ current target leader and co-receiving leader gains a massive 49.41 Lifetime Value points to climb 25 spots to WR46.

In two games, Justin Fields has a total of 28 pass attempts (No. 33). To put this into perspective, 26 quarterbacks surpassed this total in Week 2 alone. Fields has an Accuracy Rating of 6.3 (No. 32) and a True Passer Rating of 42.3-percent (No. 32). The former Ohio State Buckeye drops 14.99 Lifetime Value points and three spots to land at QB16 on PlayerProfiler’s dynasty rankings.

Lessons Learned- Week 2 NFL 2022

by Al Scherer, September 20, 2022

When the Chiefs reached the Chargers’ nine-yard line in the 2nd quarter Thursday, Mahomes threw to McKinnon for a score. In the 3rd quarter, down by three points and at Los Angeles’ 3-yard line, the Chiefs went McKinnon-pass-pass. When that didn’t work, they kicked a field goal rather than try again from the one yard line. A single, late 52-yard 4th quarter run boosted an otherwise muted performance. There are just too many options in Kansas City, and the Chiefs don’t seem to want to commit to Clyde.

2022 Lessons Learned – Week 1 NFL

by Al Scherer, September 13, 2022

Buffalo, this year’s Super Bowl favorite, opened the 2022 season as road favorites against the defending Super Bowl Champion Rams. They lived up to the advanced billing, crushing the defending champs 31-10, and it wasn’t even that close.

Last year, the Bills stopped teams by preventing big plays. This year, it seems they’re going to prevent little plays, too. They completely stomped on the Rams’ revamped offensive line. The Bills defense sacked Matthew Stafford seven times. Last year, he didn’t see his seventh sack until Week 8.

FFB Market Watch: Trade These Veterans Now!

by Matty Kiwoom, April 7, 2022

From 2020 to 2021 Ezekiel Elliot has seen a decline in Opportunity Share, Yards Created, and Dominator Rating. Zeke’s Opportunity Share fell more than 14-percentage points and for the first time in his entire career he finished outside the top 25 in Dominator Rating. The tailback is becoming less and less of a factor in the passing game. He may have been the RB7 overall but he was RB15 on a points per game basis. Get out now before the bottom completely falls off.

Not only has Miles Sanders witnessed a downtick in opportunities, he was also less effective when he had the ball in his hands. He has fallen outside the top 30 running backs in PlayerProfiler’s Dynasty Rankings. This may be the last chance to move on from the Philly tailback. Will team builders get 100-percent return? Absolutely not, but in short order, his value may drop to zero. So get out now!

The Fantasy Supermarket: Trade Targets Going Into Week 14

by Matt Babich, December 8, 2021

Jalen Hurts and Lamar Jackson are two upper echelon Konami QBs. Neither of these players are true “buy low” candidates, but their values have dipped recently. Both players are elite rushers and, while they aren’t the most efficient passers, they have the capability to explode through the air. Having an elite Konami QB is the key to winning championships, and this is your last chance to secure one.

Don’t look now, but Elijah Mitchell is a workhorse back. He’s received at least 25 touches in three straight games, and set a career high Snap Share in week 13. He has the athletic profile, he’s in the right offense, and he’s getting all of the carries. He’ll miss this week with a concussion, but after that it’s wheels up. Mitchell is a top five back for the rest of the season, and the season’s final buy of the week.

The Fantasy Supermarket: Trade Targets Going Into Week 13

by Matt Babich, December 1, 2021

Aaron Jones and D’Andre Swift are both efficient runners PPR monsters. They both currently sit in the top 10 in Target Share and Yards Created. Jones is the RB2 version of Swift, as Swift is seeing absurd touch totals. Both players, at their respective price, can turn your team from a dark horse to a championship favorite.

Jarvis Landry and Brandon Aiyuk are two receivers who are potential league winners. With the Browns now without Odell Beckham, Landry is seeing alpha-level Target Shares and will be the main focus of the passing game. Aiyuk has turned his slump around in a major way and now won’t have Deebo Samuel alongside him for the foreseeable future.

Odell Beckham is Fantasy Football’s Ideal Sell-High Candidate

by Mark Munnell, November 26, 2021

Once Antonio Brown and Stefon Diggs found their new homes in Tampa Bay and Buffalo, they thrived with the change of scenery. One would assume Odell Beckham will thrive in the Rams offense, especially after they lost Robert Woods for the rest of the year with a torn ACL. However, I am here to make the argument that it will not be much of a difference.

In negotiations to deal Odell Beckham, make sure you point out his ability to still get open and how he will be a week-winner for their team with his big play potential. Also, argue for Matthew Stafford’s MVP case and how he will feed Beckham now with Robert Woods out. Beckham will be better now that he is out of Cleveland, but that is not a high bar to clear. Leave that headache for someone else and get yourself a second-half rebound candidate.

The Fantasy Supermarket: Trade Targets Going Into Week 11

Russell Wilson is a dual-threat gunslinger who’s addicted to elite fantasy performances. He face-planted on his return from injury, which creates the perfect bye window going into a league-winning schedule. Odell Beckham is going to be heavily involved in the Rams offense. He is a home-run swing, but his potential is worth the risk.

A.J. Dillon is a size-speed specimen, stepping into a bell-cow role. Though Aaron Jones will likely return this season, Dillon is going to smash in the meantime and stay relevant when Jone returns. Whether you’re a contender or looking for a playoff push, Dillon can give your team the edge it needs.

The Fantasy Supermarket: Trade Targets Going Into Week 10

by Matt Babich, November 10, 2021

David Montgomery and D’Andre Swift are both workhorse running backs who are involved in the passing game, but play at two very different levels. Montgomery is an RB2 with RB1 upside, while Swift is an elite bell-cow and a league winner.

The Brandon Aiyuk comeback game has finally arrived. He ran a route on all of Jimmy Garoppolo’s 40 pass attempts, and set season highs in all of PlayerProfiler’s listed box score stats. Aiyuk is returning to normal usage, out of Shanahan’s dog house, and this week’s buy of the week.
