The Pace of Play Report: Week 9 – Slowing Circling Colts

by , November 10, 2022

This is the Pace of Play Report: Week 9! We’re back again folks. We return once more to delve into the world of the pace of play in 2022. Our weekly look at the speed by which teams snap off their offensive plays, casting a glance at the teams who look to get two or more plays a minute run. We do this while turning our noses up (for the most part) at the teams who wait until the last possible second to run a single play. Why do we care? Because the more plays that get run, the more opportunity players have to score fantasy points, of course.

Week 10 TNF Showdown: Falcons vs Panthers

by , November 10, 2022

Marcus Mariota’s middle name must be ‘miracle’ because not many predicted he’d be the Falcons starting quarterback this long. Despite 30 (No. 12) Deep Ball Attempts, he throws one of the worst deep balls in the league. He missed Kyle Pitts for a walk-in long ball by a mile on Sunday. He’s the poster child for an inefficient backup, yet he produces 0.64 (No. 5) Fantasy Points per Dropback. While the Falcons run near a league-low in pass attempts, it’s worth noting that Mariota has thrown for over 300 air yards in two straight close Game Scripts, including a game vs Carolina. It might be ugly, and there will be low points, but Mariota is a QB2 with a big-play upside and a rushing role. I expect a QB2 performance in what should be a slower grudge match on a slow week.

Matchup Monitor Week 10 – 2022

by , November 9, 2022

The Dolphins were No. 9 in fantasy points allowed to receivers entering Week 9, where they allowed seven receptions and a touchdown to Darnell Mooney. Miami has allowed at least 24 points in six games this season, with teams passing often in shootouts against the Dolphins’ fast offense. If Cleveland finds itself in a shootout, Cooper will be utilized exponentially more.

The Packers have not allowed over 220 passing yards since Week 3, snagging four interceptions over their last three games. Green Bay’s secondary has shown an ability to contain opposing receiving corps well this season. They do have some injuries on the defense, but Jaire Alexander and company have the secondary locked down. Expect the Cowboys to instead attack the Packers’ suspect run defense. Prescott has a tough fantasy matchup this week.

Lessons Learned – Week 9 2022: Fields is Here

by , November 8, 2022

Posting his fourth consecutive top-8 fantasy QB finish against Miami Sunday, Fields completed 60-percent of his throws with three passing scores. But that wouldn’t be nearly the half of it. His insane 178 rushing yards on just 15 carries was the greatest regular-season rushing performance by a quarterback in NFL history and just three yards shy of Colin Kaepernick’s playoff outburst 10 years ago.

Waiver Wire Week 10 – Surviving Byemaggedon

by , November 7, 2022

Fantasy managers can breathe a sigh of relief at the end of Byemaggedon. Six teams on byes made for some genuinely disgusting start-sit choices. Week 10 will be less painful with only four teams set to miss. Week 11 will have four more teams out with byes (Jacksonville, Miami, Seattle, and Tampa Bay). Plan accordingly and be a week ahead. 

This is not a great week of impactful waiver wire additions, but check your league for players not listed in this column who could have been cut last week. Take extra time to comb through your league’s list of available players because the finish line is in sight and the fantasy playoffs are just around the corner.

The Infirmary Report: Post Week 9

by , November 7, 2022

The worst part of our beloved game is the frequency of injuries. It’s an unfortunate byproduct of such a fast-paced, contact-heavy sport. It’s something that is important to remember as we approach the first full week of the preseason. Luckily for the NFL players, they have access to some of the best doctors in the world and can usually return to form at least by the next season. Unfortunately for us fantasy players, it’s not always easy to know when a player will get hurt. To another degree, sometimes your roster isn’t big enough to plan ahead for an injury. This series, the Infirmary Report, will give you advice on the injuries that have happened every week during the season. Without further ado, here is the Infirmary Report: Post Week 9 of regular season action.

Week 9 MNF Showdown: Ravens vs Saints

by , November 7, 2022

With Mark Andrews listed as doubtful, preseason darling Isaiah Likely will be thrust into a significant role as the team’s top tight end. If he’s able to sniff Andrew’s elite 89-percent Snap Share, he’ll make for a strong play.

Kamara has come on lately, recording top-10 RB performances in three of his last four games. Last week’s triple touchdown outburst broke the seal after being held scoreless to begin the year.

Dynasty Market Movers – Report 4: Stock up for Tony Pollard

by , November 5, 2022

With Ezekiel Elliott sitting out the Week 8 match-up versus Chicago, Pollard exploded for 147 total yards and three touchdowns. This big day translated to a 33.7 fantasy point (RB4) finish. Pollard gains 54.22 Lifetime Value points to move 9 spots on the dynasty rankings to RB20.

Regardless of any narrative coming out of the Cowboys organization regarding future RB splits, Pollard makes for an interesting free agent this offseason. His 5.3 (No. 9) True Yards Per Carry and 6.7 (No. 3) Yards Per Touch, are substantially better than Zeke’s marks. The man of the hour has nine Breakaway Runs (No. 3). Tony Freakin’ Pollard!

After a strong start to the 2022 campaign, Courtland Sutton has gone cold of late. Sutton has not been performing like the team’s WR1, and other weapons have emerged. Over the past three weeks, Sutton has produced a total of 50 scoreless receiving yards with no red zone targets. This yardage total is lower than any single game output from Weeks 1 through 5.

The 27-year-old loses 45.7 Lifetime Value points and 18 spots to slide to WR43 in dynasty. Better days are ahead for Sutton, but this buy-low opportunity comes with volatility in the Denver Bronco’s 21st-ranked passing offense.

NFC South Post-Week 8 Update

by , November 5, 2022

This is the NFC South Post-Week 8 Update! Before the 2023 NFL Season kicked off, it seemed Tampa Bay was destined to crush everyone in the division and cruise to the playoffs. Atlanta appeared destined to sink to the bottom of the standings. Clearly, many of us (myself included!) were wrong about those predictions. Below, […]
