The Week 11 injury report for fantasy-relevant players is shorter than it has been this season, but wide receiver still leads the way. Players already ruled out include Jeremy Maclin, Chris Hogan Darrius Heyward-Bey, Markus Wheaton, DeAngelo...

Jarvis Landry
As has been the case for most of this fantasy season, wide receivers make up the majority of the injury report for Week 11. Add to that four teams on bye and it may be another tough week for owners to find enough serviceable starting options....

The Dallas Cowboys’ (8-1) last-minute 35-30 win over the Steelers last Sunday was their eighth victory in a row and helped them maintain a two-game lead over the surging Giants in the NFC East. The victory also provided “America...

The Bills and Bengals were just about nobody’s pick to make a Super Bowl run; but at the same time, few probably figured both would have losing records when they met in November.   But here we are. It’s not yet Thanksgiving, and...

Welcome to the last week of the fantasy season with four teams on a bye. The Atlanta Falcons, New York Jets, Denver Broncos and San Diego Chargers aren't playing this week, so fantasy owners will need to find replacements in their starting...

By this point in the fantasy season the running back landscape usually bears no resemblance to the preseason rankings. Injuries, depth chart changes and other various factors seem to affect RBs more than any other position in fantasy. Owners often...

As the fantasy playoffs approach, it's more important than ever to grab those last few wins. Nobody wants to be left on the outside looking in because of a dud two-point performance. Make sure to check your lineup before the games start and put...

Bye weeks in the NFL are starting to wrap up, with just six teams on bye over the next three weeks, which is music to the ears of many fantasy owners. For quarterback purposes, the only relevant players that are off in Week 11 are Matt Ryan and...

I guess I have to come to terms with the fact that Dallas is a good team. I've tried to fade the Cowboys several times this year and that has not worked out well for me. Their defense may not be great, but when you can run the ball and drain...

Normally Rob Gronkowski would be far and away the No.1 fantasy tight end for Week 11 based on the matchup with San Francisco. However, Gronkowski reportedly suffered a punctured lung in Sunday night’s game against Seattle, putting his...

Only four teams on bye in Week 11, but the wide receiver position will be missing one of the best in Julio Jones, as well as several other top fantasy options in Demaryius Thomas, Emmanuel Sanders and Brandon Marshall. However, there is still...

Week 10 of the fantasy football season certainly finished with a bang didn’t it? I mean could you have asked for anymore production from the running back position? In all honesty Ezekiel Elliot was one of my least favorite players since I...

Arizona has recorded at least one sack on defense in every game so far this season, which is something a fantasy owner looks for from their defense/special teams (DST) unit. After not allowing an opposing DST to score double-digit fantasy points (...

Adam Vinatieri has the second-most fantasy points among all kickers, and the guy in the No. 1 spot (Matt Bryant) is on bye in Week 11. The Packers/Titans game in Week 10 was high scoring, and with the Colts’ defense struggling, it is possible...

Tom Brady
Tom Brady was the top-ranked fantasy quarterback for Week 10, however, he didn't throw a touchdown (thanks, LeGarrette Blount) and he threw his first interception of the season. The good news is that New England faces San Francisco this Sunday...

Le'Veon Bell
With David Johnson, Le’Veon Bell, Ezekiel Elliot and DeMarco Murray all playing so well, trying to figure out which one will be the No. 1 fantasy running back for Week 11 is rather tricky. It really boils down to matchups, and since Bell is...

Week 10 was a week with the highest of expectations for me, and I loved the matchups, pricing, and everything about this daily fantasy football slate. Some of the value picks hit (Eli Rogers and Stefon Diggs) but there was plenty of disappointing...
