Hoping to secure a fantasy playoff spot in Week 13? Jeremy Hill can help. QB – Colin Kaepernick, SF ($32) – For being the No. 6 QB in fantasy points per game since taking over behind center for the 49ers in Week 6, and the No. 2 fantasy QB (in PPG) over the past month, Kaepernick is not getting nearly
Wendell Smallwood should give his owners reason to be thankful this holiday weekend. QB – Carson Palmer, Ari ($29) – Palmer is an under $30 bargain in DFS and is 13th among QBs in Start% this week in Yahoo leagues. Considering that Palmer is fourth in the league in pass attempts per game and is facing
Pittsburgh QB Ben Roethlisberger is having a hard time taking his aerial show on the road. The Browns entered Week 11 having allowed the second-most fantasy points per game to the QB position, so to say Roethlisberger’s meager totals on Sunday were a disappointment is a massive understatement. In his
Tyreek, not Jeremy, is the Hill you should be looking for in Week 11. QB – Colin Kaepernick, SF ($27) – Have legs, will travel in fantasy football. Such is the case for Kaepernick, whose 228 rushing yards over four starts has helped propel him to a No. 7 ranking among the QB position in fantasy points
Jay Cutler, Chi ($30) – Cutler was solid (252 yards, 1 TD pass, 0 turnovers) in his return to action in Week 8, leading the Bears to an upset victory over Minnesota. The Bucs have just four interceptions and 17 sacks on the season, so Cutler should have the time and open windows to do some damage on
Dez Bryant was mostly a bystander for Dallas’ fantasy feeding frenzy in Cleveland on Sunday. After returning from a knee injury in Week 8 against Philly to haul in four catches for 113 yards and a TD, Dez Bryant was a massive disappointment in his follow-up effort on Sunday in a seemingly sweetheart
Colin Kaepernick, SF ($29) – I know you’re making the Mr. Yuck sticker face, but the fact is that Kaepernick has been the No. 15 fantasy QB in each of the two weeks that he’s started this season (Weeks 6-7). It’s a ripe environment for Kaepernick, who is averaging 75 rushing yards in his two starts.
Sunday’s San Francisco-Buffalo matchup provided further confirmation about two things we already knew: 1) LeSean McCoy is the heart and soul of the Bills offense with Sammy Watkins out with a foot injury, and 2) The 49ers run defense is atrocious. McCoy became the latest running back to victimize San
Look for Tevin Coleman to make another positive impact in the Atlanta passing game on Sunday. QB – Marcus Mariota, Ten ($28) – Mariota was the top QB in fantasy in Week 5 and now gets a cherry matchup against the winless Browns, a team that allowed over 400 yards passing and three aerial scores to Tom
Go deep with Sammie Coates this week, you can bet the Steelers plan to. QB – Kirk Cousins, Was ($29) – Cousins is only the 16th-most expensive starting QB in Yahoo DFS this week, and currently ranks 12th at the position in percent started in Yahoo leagues heading into the weekend. RB – Duke Johnson
If so, consider this the fatherly, arm-around-the-shoulder advice, where we tell you that it’s all going to be alright after New England suffered its first home shutout loss since the ’93 season – falling 16-0 on Sunday to Buffalo. Now that QB Tom Brady has finished serving his four-game suspension,
Trevor Siemian, Den ($26) – Pretty cheap price for Siemian this week considering that he’s coming off the top fantasy performance by a QB in Week 3 (312 yards, 4 TD passes) and he’s facing a Tampa Bay defense that has allowed the fourth-highest QB rating (106.4). Against strong competition, Siemian
Ryan Tannehill, Mia ($31) – Last week’s No. 3 fantasy QB (389 passing yards, 2 TD tosses) faces a Cleveland defense that has allowed both Philly rookie Carson Wentz and Baltimore’s Joe Flacco to finish as top 15 fantasy QBs in the week they faced off. Tannehill has easy QB1 upside, and comes at a bargain
Wallace was thrown a lot of shade by the fantasy community this offseason as a 30-year-old coming off a 473-yard, two-TD campaign in Minnesota. It’s as if Vikings QB Teddy Bridgewater has a glorious track record of producing stalwart fantasy wideouts and Wallace failed to make good in this land of milk
The Baltimore Ravens passing game is looking up in Week 2. QB – Joe Flacco, Bal ($29) – This one doesn’t require too much explanation. All you need to know is that Flacco faces a Cleveland defense that allowed a 101.8 QB Rating (third-highest of the week) against rookie Carson Wentz, who was seeing
Derek Carr, Oak ($33) – While Oakland desires to be a run-heavy club, you have to toss that notion out the window this week as the matchup at New Orleans (with an O/U line of right around 50 points) forces us to contemplate the enticing aerial opportunity presented to Carr. Last season, the Saints defense
