Isaiah Thomas: Over the last two weeks, he’s averaged 32.0 ppg, 7.0 apg and 4.0 3pt while shooting 51.1 percent from the floor and 95.7 from the line, when he’s been the No. 1 overall fantasy player. Thomas is recently coming off a game in which he scored 52 points while committing just two turnovers
Le’Veon Bell totaled another 137 yards with two touchdowns against a tough Ravens defense, showing his usual patience while getting 6.1 YPC. Eli Manning threw for 356 yards, but it took a career-high 63 attempts and came with three picks. The Dolphins are 9-1 over their last 10 games…Jay Ajayi has
Brad Evans and Dalton Del Don talk whether or not to trust Todd Gurley in your fantasy championship. The duo also go over a bunch of over/unders preparing you for the all important Week 16 while previewing Thursday night’s game in an all fantasy football podcast.
Draymond Green: He’s getting a modest 10.6 ppg thanks to just 8.9 field goal attempts on a team loaded with offensive weapons, but it hasn’t hurt his fantasy value at all, as he’s still ranked as a top-15 option this season. Jeff Teague: He’s averaged 18.0 points with 9.0 assists over the past week,
Ezekiel Elliott ran for 159 yards and a score, adding 29 yards through the air in another dominant performance. Elliott is now on pace to finish with 2,174 yards and 16 touchdowns, and the early word is he’s winning rookie of the year. In all seriousness, Elliott runs behind a great line, but he’s
Myles Turner: He’s lived up to expectations, as Turner has been a top-25 player this season (just behind LeBron James) while seeing the fewest mpg (28:53) among anyone in that group. Lou Williams: He’s been a borderline top-50 player so far this season and recently completed a stretch in which he scored
While the Giants/Cowboys game wasn’t exactly high scoring, Odell Beckham Jr. came with a huge for New York and fantasy owners. Ben Roethlisberger had a 0:3 TD:INT ratio with a 37.8 Passer Rating and continues to struggle on the road, yet the Steelers still won 27-20, as Le’Veon Bell is a fantasy god
Russell Westbrook: This is quite the run, as Westbrook has recorded a remarkable six straight triple-doubles (the longest such streak since 1989, and he nearly had three of them in a row in the first halves). Westbrook led the NBA in Usage Rate at 33.3 percent last season. Richaun Holmes: With the
Cam Newton missed the first play of Sunday night’s game for disciplinary reasons, resulting in Derek Anderson getting picked off immediately…Thomas Rawls ran for 106 yards and two scores on just 15 carries, as I continue to think he’s going to be a major difference make down the stretch.
Zach LaVine: Many expected a breakout, and LaVine has lived up to the hype as a top-50 player so far. Minnesota has fallen off its early season pace as one of the league’s top Offensive Efficiencies in the NBA, but it’s still nearly top-10, and LaVine just continues to get better. It’s crazy (and more
Liz Loza and Dalton Del Don talk about all things Week 12 in a Fantasy Football wrap podcast. Among the hot topics: Taylor Gabriel being a legitimate option going forward or someone to fade, the Seahawks laying a dud in Tampa Bay, the Browns continued struggles and much more.
Harrison Barnes: He’s taken advantage of leaving Golden State and joining a team that needs a lead scorer (especially with Dirk Nowitzki out). Barnes is taking 17.8 shots per game this season, and his previous high was 9.6. Barnes looks better than ever and up to the task to be the centerpiece of an
Kirk Cousins and Aaron Rodgers combined for 730 passing yards with a 6:0 TD:INT ratio. Both played well, but Cousins was particularly impressive, as he completed 70.0 percent of his passes and got 12.5 YPA, finishing with a 145.8 passer rating. Cousins is now on pace to throw for 4,946 yards with 27
Liz Loza and Dalton Del Don open their Week 11 review by talking about A.J. Green’s devastating injury that could end his season and search for possible replacements. Other injuries have also increased the value of Wendell Smallwood and Thomas Rawls, as health was almost as big of a problem as extra
Joel Embiid: It’s already clear he’s going to be a major star if health permits. Embiid is going to remain on a minutes limit and will sit some back-to-backs, and his turnovers have been through the roof, but his per-36 minute numbers are 29.2 ppg, 11.8 rpg and 3.7 bpg, which is insane for a 22-year-old
Another huge game from Ezekiel Elliott, who ran for 114 yards (5.4 YPC) and two scores while adding 95 yards and a touchdown through the air. The most rushing yards ever by a rookie were 1,808 by Eric Dickerson. Elliott is currently on pace for 1,787 (with 444 receiving yards to boot) as well as 18
Robert Woods: It’s easy to write off Monday night’s big game as a small sample fluke, as Woods previously hadn’t recorded 90 yards in a game this season before securing 10-of-13 targets for 162 yards, but this happened in Seattle against a Seahawks defense that’s allowed the sixth fewest fantasy points
Donte Moncrief: He’s back and immediately saw nine targets Sunday, and Moncrief has scored in both full games he’s played this season. It’s a terrific setup for him, as the Colts are always forced to throw frequently thanks to a poor defense, and Phillip Dorsett proved to be no threat to his snaps when
Derek Carr completed 67.8 percent of his passes Sunday, throwing for 513 yards with a 4:0 TD:INT ratio. The team now has a bye to get healthy…It’s not often you throw for 458 yards and don’t lead the league in passing but so is the case with Kirk Cousins this week.
Spencer Ware: He’s totaled 294 yards from scrimmage with two touchdowns over the last two games, and Jamaal Charles has renewed knee issues making it increasingly unlikely he’ll contribute much over the rest of the season. Ware is on pace to finish with 2,075 yards and eight touchdowns this year, and
Matt Ryan didn’t have his best game, but at least he concentrated his throws, as Julio Jones turned 15 targets into nine receptions and 174 yards. It’s too bad Jones isn’t used more in the red zone, but he’s nevertheless on pace to finish the year with 91 catches, 1,897 yards and nine touchdowns. Jones
