Tyler Eifert A Risky Week 1 Play

Jacksonville Jaguars tight end Tyler Eifert isn't listed as the starter on the team's initial depth chart, though the oft-injured former Bengal is likely to be the best receiving option at the position for the team. But being the "best" option doesn't necessarily translate to fantasy football success, and Eifert is best left on the... Read More

Ricky Seals-Jones Opens 2020 As Inactive

Kansas City Chiefs tight end Ricky Seals-Jones is inactive for the team's Thursday night meeting with the Houston Texans. Seals-Jones has been a promising receiving threat at times in his career, but the Chiefs already have the league's top tight end, Travis Kelce. It looks like they value what Nick Keizer and Deon Yelder bring... Read More

Keke Coutee Inactive In Week 1

Houston Texans wide receiver Keke Coutee is inactive for Houston's Week 1 game against the Kansas City Chiefs, as is fullback Cullen Gillaspia. The Coutee news isn't a surprise, as he played a very small role on this team last season and seems like an emergency third slot receiver behind Randall Cobb and DeAndre Carter.... Read More

Brandin Cooks Active In Week 1

Houston Texans wide receiver Brandin Cooks (quad) is active for Houston's Week 1 contest against the Kansas City Chiefs. It remains to be seen how Houston's wide receiver rotation will go this season, but Cooks is an interesting play this week against a Chiefs Defense that allowed a lot of yards and points to the...

Jaguars Could Get Creative With Laviska Shenault Jr.

Jacksonville Jaguars rookie wide receiver Laviska Shenault Jr. is reportedly being used in a variety of ways at practice. Though the beat writer who reported this was unable to go into specifics due to the NFL's media rules, one can assume that Shenault is getting at least some work in the backfield, whether that be...

Devine Ozigbo To Open Season On Injured Reserve

Jacksonville Jaguars running back Devine Ozigbo (hamstring) will start the 2020 season on the Injured Reserve. New rules this year mean Ozigbo could return for Week 4, but in the meantime, it appears that undrafted rookie James Robinson is going to get the first crack at the lead-back role. Robinson should be added in all... Read More

Courtland Sutton Questionable For Week 1

Denver Broncos wide receiver Courtland Sutton (shoulder) is day-to-day with a sprained AC joint in his shoulder and is questionable for Denver's season-opening game against the Tennessee Titans on Monday night. Sutton left practice early on Thursday with a shoulder issue, and this news appears to be a best-case scenario for him. If he does... Read More

"Starting" Running Backs to Ignore in Fantasy Football

Once upon a time, you could figure out which running backs to draft and play in fantasy by looking at a team's depth, seeing who the starting running back was, and then drafting that guy. It was a simpler time. Depth charts made sense. Backup running backs were backup running backs. But football has changed.... Read More

Wide Receiver Waiver Wire Pickups - Week 1

Y'all, it's here. NFL football. On Thursday night, the Texans and the Chiefs will kick things off, which is either going to be a great or terrible start to the year for me, a Texans fan whose wife is a huge Chiefs fan and got a Chiefs Super Bowl tattoo in February. But enough about... Read More

Michael Pittman Jr. (WR, IND) - Week 1 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 12-Team Leagues OWNED IN: 29% of Leagues ANALYSIS: The Indianapolis Colts have a new quarterback in Philip Rivers. Since 2009, Rivers has supported a WR2 with a top 40 finish at the position eight times, including the past three seasons. Heck, his WR3 has finished top-50 four times over that sample. So,...

Texans Defense Not A Viable Week 1 Option

There are a lot of nice pieces on the Houston Texans Defense. There's J.J. Watt. Whitney Mercilus. Bradley Roby. Justin Reid. None of that matters in Week 1, because the Texans face Patrick Mahomes and the Kansas City Chiefs on Thursday night. The last time the Texans were on an NFL field, they allowed 51... Read More

Chris Thompson Has PPR Appeal In Week 1

Jacksonville Jaguars running back Chris Thompson is the only veteran running back on the current Jaguars roster. He should see plenty of targets out of the backfield, just as he did when he was with Washington, and could wind up with more rushing attempts than expected with two untested players in front of him. Thompson... Read More

D.J. Chark Jr. Is Only Safe Fantasy Receiver In Jacksonville

Jacksonville Jaguars wide receiver D.J. Chark Jr. is coming off a breakout second season and should continue that in his third season, serving as the main offensive weapon for quarterback Gardner Minshew II. Another 1,000-yard season is within reach for Chark, who opens the year against a Colts team that allowed the 10th-most fantasy points to... Read More

James Robinson Could Be Interesting Week 1 DFS Play

The Jacksonville Jaguars backfield is a mess right now, but undrafted free-agent running back James Robinson appears to be the starter for the team. Because we don't have much to go on this week, starting Robinson in season-long formats seems like a tough call, but he's an interesting DFS option for fantasy managers who are... Read More

Gardner Minshew II A QB2 Option To Start Season

Jacksonville Jaguars quarterback Gardner Minshew II is a solid QB2 option with upside in Week 1 against the Indianapolis Colts. Minshew finished his rookie season with 3,271 passing yards on a 60.6 completion percentage with 21 touchdowns and six interceptions. The 2020 Jaguars have a chance to be really bad, but bad teams can make... Read More

Five Deeper Wide Receiver Sleepers for 2020

Something that doesn't get touched on enough in fantasy football analysis is the deep, deep sleepers. I'm talking "plays in a league with 20-plus roster spots and/or 16 teams" style deep, deep sleepers. So, let's talk about some deep, deep sleepers. Today, I'm going to be highlighting five wide receivers who currently are being drafted... Read More

Darren Fells Opens 2020 As Boom/Bust Option

Houston Texans tight end Darren Fells enters 2020 with the same outlook he had for most of 2019, which is that he's a boom-or-bust fantasy tight end. Fells caught seven touchdowns in 2019, but also had eight games in which he finished with 20 or fewer yards. Fantasy managers shouldn't trust Fells to be a... Read More

Randall Cobb Has Deep League PPR Appeal In Week 1

Houston Texans wide receiver Randall Cobb wasn't the biggest name to join the Houston Texans this offseason, but he might be the addition that ends up helping the team the most as he'll serve as a solid slot option for the team. While the Week 1 matchup with the Kansas City Chiefs is scary for... Read More

Brandin Cooks Is Risky Week 1 Play

With no preseason, familiarity could be more important than ever at the beginning of the 2020 NFL season. That might not be great news for fantasy managers who've rostered Houston Texans wide receiver Brandin Cooks. A talented receiver, Cooks has two key things working against him in Week 1: it's his first game as a... Read More

Will Fuller V Has Upside In Week 1

With DeAndre Hopkins gone, Houston Texans wide receiver Will Fuller V is going to be expected to step into an even bigger role in 2020. That starts on Thursday, with the Texans taking on the Kansas City Chiefs in a Week 1 matchup. The Chiefs have some strong options in the secondary to slow down... Read More

Duke Johnson Is Risky Week 1 Option

Houston Texans running back Duke Johnson carries a lot of fantasy risk heading into Houston's Week 1 meeting with the Kansas City Chiefs. While the Chiefs allowed the seventh-most fantasy points to backs last season, Duke Johnson's projected role now that Houston's acquired David Johnson is hard to predict. The best thing for fantasy managers... Read More

David Johnson Has Upside In Texans Debut

Houston Texans running back David Johnson will make his Houston Texans debut on Thursday night when the Texans face the Kansas City Chiefs. K.C. allowed the seventh-most fantasy points to opposing running backs in 2019, which could work out nicely for Johnson this week. Of course, Johnson looked fairly pedestrian down the stretch for the... Read More

Deshaun Watson Is Solid Week 1 Start

Houston Texans quarterback Deshaun Watson doesn't have the easiest matchup on Thursday night when he faces the Kansas City Chiefs, but he remains a solid starting option. Watson, who just signed an extension with Houston, will be operating without his former top receiver, DeAndre Hopkins, this year, but the Texans have put a vertical passing... Read More
