- Throughout the day, I'll be posting my thoughts on surprising performances from fantasy football players. From the biggest names disappointing to the most obscure thriving, I'll try to give a rapid reaction to how we should view these stat lines going forward. You won't find a place with takes as they happen like this.So, follow my thoughts in the comment section, and refresh the page for the newest information we have.

- I wrote about the Rams RB situation after Week 8, but since then Tre Mason has had 20+ looks in every game [average of 24] and solidified himself as the Rams’ stud RB. Benny Cunningham is now a handcuff and Zac Stacy has been completely erased from the offense.
Though he struggled early in the year, Alfred Morris has 82 looks over his last four games and has re-established himself as a workhorse. After single digit fantasy point games in 5 of his first 7. He has double digits in each of his last three.
Is Tre Mason an every week start?
On volume alone, yes
Middling at best
Not finding enough room to run
Needs to get in the end zoneShare this Story×Google+posted by: Jonathan_TTFOpinion
- Coby Fleener [52 targets] starred after Dwayne Allen [40 targets] got injured in WK 11, & now has 18 targets in his last two games. With Bradshaw on IR, Fleener is a safe bet to be third on the Colts in targets ROS.
After WK 3, Martellus Bennett was 2nd in TE targets, but since WK 4, he’s averaging only 6.5 target/game, and only has single digit fantasy points in each game except when he scored in WK 8 [his only TD since W3]. He’s clearly taken a backseat to Marshall and Jeffery [both averaging 8.8+ targets since WK 4].
Is Coby Fleener a Top-10 TE?
Only if Allen stays out
Yes, he's already #10 should continue
Bradshaw injury leads to more targets
Montcrief is the real benefactorShare this Story×Google+posted by: Jonathan_TTFOpinion
- Over the last four weeks, Roddy White has been out-targeting Julio Jones 39-36 and has at least 5 catches and 66 yards each game while Julio has only exceeded 60 yards once. Roddy also has 3 TDs to Julio’s 0 over that span to produce Top-10 WR numbers.
I have been discussing Martavis Bryant’s regression for a couple weeks, as the targets didn’t match the production [especially in the TD department]. Averaging only 6 targets per week since Week 7, rough games like Week 11 aren’t at all shocking.
How many TDs does Martavis score his remaining 5 games?

- Jonas Gray: With the help of a stat correction, Gray ended up rushing for 201 yards & 4 TDs on Monday. He'll struggle to find consistency in the NE offense but his value is up nonetheless.
Alfred Blue: With Foster out, Blue ripped off 156 yards on a ridiculous 36 carries. I'd personally look to sell him to Foster owners as soon as possible.
Duron Carter: Soon eligible to sign in the NFL, Cris Carter's son has made waves in the CFL with his massive frame [6'5, 205lbs]. I've seen him go for as high as 90% of FAAB budget.

- Ben Tate: He had been complaining about his role and it ended with him being waived. He was claimed by the Vikings but Tate's dynasty value has taken a huge hit.
Vernon Davis: Despite Harbaugh stating that Vernon is ready to break out, it's hard to ignore the stats. Vernon has 4 for 34 over his last three games and is not a fantasy option right now.
Ahmad Bradshaw: It's fair to wonder if Bradshaw's career may be over when you consider his injury history. Dynasty owners will be hard-pressed to find any value in a trade.

- In Week 12, several of Vegas' higher Over/Unders have huge spreads. Instead of covering individual games, let's dive into which teams Vegas thinks scores the most this weekend.IND: 31. -13.5 vs JACThe JAC DEF is sub-par. Game scripting has limited the passing matchup in the past, but IND isn't known to step off the gas. Huge plus RB matchup.
PHI: 29.75. -11 vs TENThe Titans offering middling matchups across the board, which shouldn't slow down the Eagles much at all.GB: 29. -9.5 at MINGB faces a below average defense? I'm sold.

All the Eagles

Yes, need hot takes with my hot cakes.
Yes, can never have too many hot cakes.Share this Story×Google+posted by: salvatoreOpinion
- We could be looking at close to 20mph winds in Chicago. Both McCown and Cutler are popular DFS plays this week, but forget snow, it's the wind that kills numbers.DraftKings doesn't understand that Flacco is facing one of the worst pass defenses inside a dome. He's a must-buy.Roll with Forte against a Tampa run D that can't defend on the edges where CHI blocks best.TEN owns the worst run D grade on PFF, but just watch DC Ray Horton shoot defenders through the gaps as they blow containment and you'll know why. McCoy HAS to break out this week.
McCown makes for a must-fade
I'll pay up for Brees
I just can't trust McCoy this season
CHI offense will run through ForteShare this Story×Google+posted by: DanSchneierOpinion
- There will be a lot of points in the dome and without Cooks, Brees needs a new target. Enter Stills who matches up with whatever is left at CB for BAL.NYG will apparently NOT shadow Dez with DRC after all, which means he's a must-play. The Giants are down to their 5th CB across from DRC [Bowman], and he has struggled since starting.Will the Fleener train pay off? His share in DFS is set to be out of control with Allen out, but his talent and consistency are still questionable to me.Paul is a sneaky DFS play with Reed out in WAS.
Screw Stills, give me Colston!
I'm stacking Dez and TWill
You can't miss Fleener this week
I don't trust WAS pass offenseShare this Story×Google+posted by: DanSchneierOpinion
- The Bills (FD $5200, DK $3300) jump off the page as a team that can put up the 15-20 points needed in a GPP.
BUF has the 3rd-best pass rush grade on PFF, while NYJ have an overall negative pass blocking grade. Vick has a completion % under 60 and is sacked on 11.6% of drop backs, the 2nd-most in the league.
The Bills' 6.2 YPA allowed is the 5th-best in the league and rank 10th vs QBs, when adjusted for strength of schedule, while the Jets rank 25th in FP to opposing DST, according to 4for4.
If a team is likely to get a pick-6 or 2, it's Buffalo.
100% agree! Starting BUF D/ST everywhere
Vick kinda puts me off BUFShare this Story×Google+posted by: TJHernandezOpinion
- Jay Cutler vs. Buccaneers: Cutler completed 72.1 percent of his passes in Week 11. Now he'll be chucking against a Bucs secondary that's allowed 20 passing touchdowns.Philip Rivers vs. Rams: The Rams are turning opposing quarterbacks into dust recently [13 sacks over the past three weeks]. But here's the far more appealing number: 68.6, which is the overall completion percentage for opposing QBs against St. Louis.Colin Kaepernick vs. Redskins: The 'Skins gave up 122 rushing yards to the similarly mobile Russell Wilson.What's your favorite matchup?

- DeMarco Murray vs. Giants: This may be the best running back matchup of the entire season. No, the history of football, and the universe. The Giants have given up 498 rushing yards over the past two weeks. Yep.Jerick McKinnon vs. Packers: McKinnon could lose carries to Ben Tate. But that won't happen quite yet, and this week he's a fine RB2 against a Packers defense allowing 139.2 rushing yards per game.Denard Robinson @ Colts: Robinson is averaging 5.4 yards per carry over his last four games.What's your favorite matchup?

- T.Y. Hilton vs. Jaguars: Until a week ago Hilton had logged 7 straight games with at least 80 yards. Now he'll be flying high against a Jaguars secondary that's allowed 40 catches for 20+ yards.Torrey Smith @ Saints: Smith has picked it up lately with five touchdowns over his past five games. This week he'll be running deep against a gimpy Keenan Lewis.Josh Gordon @ Falcons: Gordon's snap count will likely be somewhat limited. But does it matter? The Falcons are giving up 8.2 yards per pass attempt.What's your favorite matchup?

- Austin Seferian-Jenkins @ Bears: Rolling with a tight end whose fantasy production rests almost solely with touchdowns can be risky. But the Bears are giving up a league worst 70.7 receiving yards per game to the position.Larry Donnell vs. Cowboys: The Cowboys aren't much better while allowing 68.7 yards per game to TEs. A third of Eli Manning's touchdown passes this season have gone to Donnell.Luke Willson vs. Cardinals: Your sleeper this week. The Cards have given up 136 yards to tight ends over the last two weeks.What's your favorite matchup?
