SPORTABLE Top Stories
- Emmanuel Sanders is good: After catching 47 passes for 634 yards and 4 TDs, Manny is a Top-10 fantasy WR.
Arian Foster's health: Some thought Foster wouldn't last a game season. He's missed only one full game up to this point, and is a Top-3 fantasy RB.
Brandon Marshall, LB: One way to trick IDPers is by offering to trade them Brandon Marshall the LB from Denver, not the WR from Chicago.
Seattle Seahawks [lack of] defense: The Seahawks D/ST was a Top-100 fantasy draft pick. They're the 27th-highest scoring fantasy D/ST so far.
Love Foster, but might sell high
Trading Marshall the LB is dirty trick
I never draft D/STs earlyShare this Story×Google+View all Fantasy Football Trick or Treat storiesposted by: salvatoreOpinion
- DeMarco Murray DeStud: Murray has rushed for 1,054 yards in 8 games, and is the top standard fantasy scoring RB. He was routinely drafted in the second-round.
LRQBs: Philip Rivers, Russell Wilson, and Big Ben were drafted as QB12 or later. They are all currently in the Top-10 of fantasy QB scoring.
GB WRs: While many argued for Megatron, Dez, and DT to be drafted as the top fantasy WR, Jordy and teammate Cobb are both Top-four fantasy WRs.
#GronkSmash: If you kept the faith and drafted Gronk you've been treated to owning the #1 fantasy scoring TE.
Murray has been the biggest treat
I always draft QBs late
Nelson and Cobb FTW

- It’s been a rocky year, but Heath Miller [42 targets] has worked his way into the top 10 TEs in PPR leagues. With only 8 targets in Weeks 5-7 before last week’s big game, his reliability is questionable.
It’s never a good idea to rely on rookie TEs, but Jace Amaro [39 targets] has seen 22 targets for 18 catches, 141 yards and TD over his last three weeks.
Travis Kelce, one of the NFL's most athletic TEs, has 37 targets on the year, but he's only seen 13 targets over his last three games, despite leading all TEs in YAC.
Is Amaro is legit?

- The RotoViz GLSP App projects Smith with a median score of 20 points and a high of 23 for this week's matchup versus the Jets. Not bad for a player that is only owned in 44% of Yahoo leagues.
The Jets are the most generous DEF in the league to QBs. The Jets have given up 20 or more points to every QB faced this year with the exception of rookie Derek Carr in Week 1.
When facing bottom-10 passing defenses, for his career Smith has averaged 19.81 PPG. PFF ranks Smith as the most accurate passer in the NFL at 82.7%.
Will Smith finish Week 9 as a QB1?
NoShare this Story×Google+posted by: ssmith610Opinion
- With 5 Top-30 WR finishes this year, Hopkins is set up for another in week 9 versus PHI. The Eagles are currently giving up the 3rd-most points to QBs as well as the 3rd-most points to WRs. Hopkins ranks 13th among WRs in Yards Per Route run.
While his market share of targets is on the rise, A. Johnson still leads Hopkins 69-52. It is important to note that the takeover is in full effect, as Hopkins leads AJ in every receiving statistic except YAC. Hopkins is on pace to finish with 72 recs., 1,169 yards, and 6 TDs.
Where will Hopkins finish in Week 9?
WR1 - WR12
WR13 - WR24

- Allen Robinson [63 targets] has flown under the radar, but is sittiing 17th on the year in WR targets. He’s seen at least 7 targets in each of the last 6 games, and considering Cecil Shorts’ recent production, Robinson has solidified himself as the #1 WR in JAC.
After averaging 11.5 targets per game through his first 6 games, Julio Jones [83 targets], has averaged only 7 in his last two. With no TDs since Week 3, and only more than 6 catches once in that span, the bye is exactly what he needs to get back on track.
How do you value Robinson ROS?
No interest in JAC WRsShare this Story×Google+posted by: Jonathan_TTFOpinion
- After Week 5, Eddie Lacy [129 looks] was rumored to be in a timeshare with James Starks. In the three weeks since, Lacy has received 45%, 55% and 81% of the total RB workload leading to two of his three most productive games of 2014.
After Tre Mason’s [32 looks] big Week 7 breakout, Zac Stacy [86 looks] returned to the head of this committee with nine Week 8 looks. Though Tre Mason was the most effective runner and is now averaging 5.2 YPC on the year, the Rams seem committed to getting all three touches.
Which Rams RB do you want ROS?

- Heading into this week a lot of people questioned Cowboys running back DeMarco Murray's value with his latest fumble [his fifth]. But don't worry about Murray.He's still on pace to break Eric Dickerson's single-season rushing record [2,105 yards]. If Murray breaks the record, held for 30 years, he could easily win the MVP.This season, Murray has 1,054 rushing yards [leads NFL] and seven rushing touchdowns [tied with Foster for 1st]. He's also leading the NFL in average rushing yards per game with 131.8.Will DeMarco Murray break Dickerson's record?
He will come close, but no.
He can break the record, and he will.

- With Tony Romo listed as Questionable [back] vs. ARI in Week 9, a lot of questions are being asked about his backup, Brandon Weeden.31-year-old Weeden started his career in Cleveland, where he played In in 23 career games as a Brown [20 starts]. Weeden completed 55.9 percent of his passes for 5,116 yards, 23 TDs, and 26 INTs in CLE.With Dallas, he has played in two games. In those two games he has 4-of-6 in passing completions and attempts [66.7%]. He has one touchdown going into Sunday, if he gets the go ahead.Dallas is 6-2. Will Weeden succeed?
Compared to Romo? Absolutely not.
Weeden will do fine.
Without Romo, my fantasy team struggles.

- Russell Wilson vs. Raiders: Oh, Raiders. They're just always so Raiders, which has led to their 8.2 yards allowed per pass attempt.Alex Smith vs. Jets: Smith usually isn't a prized fantasy commodity. But he makes for a fine spot play against a Jets defense that's allowed the most passing touchdowns in the league .Ryan Tannehill vs. Chargers: Brandon Flowers will return from his concussion, but the Chargers will still be without Jason Verrett. Tannehill has averaged 8.1 yards per attempt over his last four games.What's your favorite matchup?

- Jeremy Hill vs. Jaguars: Giovani Bernard will sit this game out. Jeremy Hill is roughly the size of a small village [238 pounds] and now he gets to power ahead against the league's 20th-ranked run defense.Andre Ellington @ Cowboys: The Cowboys defense has been much better than expected. But against the run [4.8 YPC allowed] they've still been "meh" at best, and now Justin Durant is gone.Ahmad Bradshaw @ Giants: The Giants are giving up the fifth most receiving yards per game to running backs [51.9].What's your favorite matchup?

- Jim Dray vs. Bucs: Here's your tight end super sleeper this week. Jordan Cameron is almost definitely out with a concussion, and the Bucs are allowing 83.4 yards per game to tight ends.Julius Thomas @ NE: This could be an especially explosive game for Orange Julius against a defense that's also vulnerable against tight ends [75.9 TE yards allowed per game].Larry Donnell vs. Colts: The Colts just gave up 112 receiving yards to Heath Miller. Prior to that Miller was averaging 39.3 yards per game.What's your favorite matchup?

- 1. Cam Newton is not Superman. For the past month, he's been more of Oh, Man... The supporting cast isn't helping, but a poor run game and lousy WRs don't cause quarterbacks to make wildly inaccurate throws. CAR has a crazy good schedule down the stretch, but Cam has to do better for that to matter.2. Mark Ingram + Correct Usage = Results. It took three years, but Sean Payton has finally figured this out.3. Neither of these teams is worthy of winning the NFC South. What an awful division.What is worse than the NFC South?

- It seems apropos that Monday Night Football features a high O/U of the, at 50.5.The Colts pass defense had been viewed as one of the tougher units in the league, but was demolished last week as they surrendered one of the best statistical QB efforts of all time.
The Giants hope to continue where PIT left off last week. The NYG defensive unit has been tough to opposing QBs and WRs, but I doubt they can slow the Luck-led Colts down. Real & fake points may abound in this one.NYG is a plus RB matchup & both NYG & IND are top matchups for TEs.
BRADSHAW FTW #OldTeamTheorem
Giants are coming off their bye.....
