cam newton, week 3 rankings, 2017 fantasy football

greetings! is it week 3, already?! holy o’hemlock, time is flying by, yet it’s frozen for me somehow. as i lay here, chest’a-flat on this one of a kind gargoyle-engraved marble bench in the depths of beddict manor, i can’t help but question some of my life choices as i ponder my next move. i envision that many of you may feel the same way: did you marry the right squaw/man? why did you let him/her talk you into that third pet, or third child for that matter? why is your son a quarter black? why are you in that cubicle, working for some filth you despise, checking your facebook account every five minutes, wondering if you should buy that seemingly incredibly crafted waist-trainer for your significant other? would that make you want to bang him/her again? probably not, but it’s something to waste more meaningless time with, giving you a glimmer of hope that one day, maybe, possibly, you could make love to your mate again and not have to envision some celebrity, hot third cousin, or you children’s friends or whatever sick fetish that is now festering inside you like a rotting, maggot-infested weasel corpse. anyway, who’s ready for some football?razzball football’s partner fantasydraft is starting a new sign-up promotion this week, all new depositing signups receive a free $4 “everyone wins” nfl gpp ticket for the upcoming sunday slate along with offering all players 4% cash back on their initial deposits! for taking the time to read this post, i say...





andy dalton, streaming strategy, 2017 fantasy football

what’s up you sophisticated sex machines? feeling the pressure of injuries? has ineffectiveness spread beyond your work day to your fantasy team? not enough ineffectiveness at work (you overachieving bastard)? never fear, as i am here for your stream options whenever you find yourself up the proverbial creek sans paddle. they might not be the prettiest options, but we all know you’ve gone hogging before in college so stop acting like you are above scraping the bottom of the barrel.  as always, i use yahoo ownerships and target players at the main streaming positions that are owned in 65% of leagues or less. qbs, tight ends, defenses! oh yeah, kickers too! who could forget those guys?let’s go snoop-a-loop, bring your green hat! we’re going streaming!!!razzball football’s partner fantasydraft is starting a new sign-up promotion this week, all new depositing signups receive a free $4 “everyone wins” nfl gpp ticket for the upcoming sunday slate along with offering all players 4% cash back on their initial deposits! andy dalton – i know, he’s got such a punchable ginger face. but i’m going bold… the bengals score a touchdown. maybe the drugs have finally kicked in, maybe i just think that there’s no way they go three games without hitting paydirt. they have to show something works. now, i’d feel better if tyler eifert goes. as of this writing, he was out of practice on wednesday. but there’s other positives in the dalton column. a gamescript...





terrance west, injury report, 2017 fantasy football

hey there everyone! i’m back to hit you with the injury news for the week 3 games that are fantasy relevant. if you have any questions please feel free to hit up the comments section below and i’ll respond as quickly as i can!razzball football’s partner fantasydraft is starting a new sign-up promotion this week, all new depositing signups receive a free $4 “everyone wins” nfl gpp ticket for the upcoming sunday slate along with offering all players 4% cash back on their initial deposits! terrance west didn’t practice and this game is in london. even if he does dress, javorius allen would be the running back you’d want on the ravens. we should also point out that the defenses in this game are exceptional and should be a score similar to the panthers-bills.demaryius thomas was limited in practice on wednesday. still a wr2 for me this week. you can’t stop trevor siemian, you can only hope to contain him. play thomas with confidence.bills passing game. good lord this was tough to watch in week 2. wr’s struggle to get separation in man coverage and they face the broncos this week. probably best to keep your bills pass catchers on the pine.terron armstead and zachary strief. why am i putting two tackles in this injury report? because they play at carolina next week and the offensive line in the big easy right now stinks. these injuries to me make it difficult to play any saints with confidence.

a.j. green, week 3 rankings, 2017 fantasy football

it’s hard to believe that it’s already week 3, but we also need to remember that it is only week 3. human instinct tells you to sell off or drop your struggling assets because they haven’t helped you win in the first couple weeks. mike lombardi states it best when he says that september is basically an extended preseason. i try not to overreact to bad performances when i’m writing my articles this early in the season. when i tell you i’m cold on cam newton or another star, it’s just to have them wait it out on the bench.there are always certain situations like adrian peterson that were head-scratching from the start. having three backs rotating on the field in a pass heavy offense doesn’t make any sense. i’d drop him, at this point because there are always exceptions to the rule. obviously, there are always guys who were on the fringe of being roster-worthy in the first place that should be dropped to pick up waiver wire studs like tarik cohen. don’t panic on a.j. green or joe mixon until we see what the new offensive coordinator has in store. wait to see if sammy watkins can develop a rhythm with jared goff over the next three or so weeks. same with isaiah crowell, his schedule is going to get a little easier over the next few weeks. this is also the perfect time of year to buy low on the cincinnati offense or terrelle pryor sr.here are my rankings for week 3…2017 fantasy football rankings powered by fantasyprosecr ™ – expert consensus rankingsas alwa...

brandin cooks, week 3 rankings, 2017 fantasy football

what’s going on everybody, and welcome to another edition of my weekly rankings! well we have another full slate on our hands, now with the 9:30 am est start time in london between the jaguars and ravens, so make sure you wake up a little earlier than usual to tinker with those lineups.week 2 was definitely head and shoulders above the first week of the season, so let’s take a look at what week 3 has to offer, but before we do, let’s recap the week that was!check out rudy’s exclusive dfs and season-long tools that are sure to help you be profitable this fantasy football season!2017 fantasy football rankings powered by fantasyprosecr ™ – expert consensus rankingsplayers i was wrong aboutcarson palmer: 19/36, 332 yds, 1 td, 1 intokay i’m done. i gave palmer a chance heading into this season after a disappointing 2016 campaign. i gave him a chance in week 2 after a terrible week 1 performance against the lions, and now against a pretty bad colts secondary, he throws for only 1 td and throws a pick. i understand he has another good matchup this week against the cowboys, but i just can’t do this to my heart anymore guys.brandin cooks: 2 rec, 37 yds, 0 tdwell i really expected a better day from cooks, and i’m not really sure as to why he didn’t do well. the patriots offense did quite well, but it’s likely that the saints defense focused all their energy against the receiver, leading the way for gronk, james white, chris hogan and even rex burkhead to produce...

davante adams, buy or sell, 2017 fantasy football

crowd chants: “we want jen! we want jen!” i know, i know, sometimes real life gets in the way. you probably woke up this morning expecting your usual hit it or quit it article and were disappointed to see the picture of diddy at the top of the football blog but i promise you that we will get through this together. jen will be back next week and if you would like to check out my regularly scheduled monday programming, you can find it here.and now, are you going to hit it… or quit it?davante adams– uh oh, jordy nelson hurt his quad and didn’t come back on sunday night. also, randall cobb seems to be a little banged up. davante adams stepped up to the plate and caught 8 of his 10 targets for 99 yards and a touchdown. if the wr corps for green bay continues to be banged up for the coming weeks, that is a very good think for davante adams target share, which should translate into some big weeks to come. even if jordy and randall are healthy, davante will continue to be a trusted target for rodgers and will probably see close to double digit targets anyways. cincinnati is on the horizon this upcoming weekend. verdict: hit it like kevin hart on a drug induced weekend in vegas.joe mixon – it’s frustrating to see the best running back on the team standing on the sidelines for a ton of snaps while the rest of the offense struggles to move the ball despite favorable field position throughout the game. the solution? fire the offensive coordinator! and the bengals did jus...





2017 fantasy baseball: total points– shortstops

head to head leagues are well into the playoffs now and daily fantasy players have their attention divided between fantasy football and the end of the baseball season. in many ways, it is perfect timing to take advantage of those divided loyalties. we’ve taken a bit of a break in our total point series, but we are ready to resume in earnest as we take a look at the top twenty shortstops.we cut off the statistics as of sunday september 17th while using our own formula that is similar to the others, but just different enough to perhaps through a monkey in the wrench. the categories are included below, but for the sake of room we have condensed walks, stolen bases, and hit by pitches into positives and strikeouts, caught stealings, and grounded into double plays into negatives.total bases= 1 point per total base               so= -1 point per soruns= 1 point per run                                     cs= -1 point per caught stealingrbi= 1 point per rbi                                       gdp= -1 point per grounded into double playsb= 1 point per stolen basebb= 1 point per walkhbp= 1 point per hbpthe elitea twitter follower earlier in the year inquired whether she should jettison lindor. luckily, i said no, but the prevailing wisdom at the time was that he was underperforming. it’s funny how a long season can create multiple views of a player. now, he is on the verge of surpassing 500 p...





chris carson, faab leagues, 2017 fantasy football

well the top guys of a week ago did not live up to their hype, did they?  here are their stats from week 2:javorius allen – 5 rec, 35 yards, 66 rush yards, 1 td.kerwynn williams – 22 rush yards.kenny golladay – 1 rec, 8 yards.tarik cohen – 8 rec, 55 yds, 13 rush yards, 1 fumble lost.nelson agholor – 1 rec, 9 yards, 1 td.williams was quiet this week as the cardinals looked bad against indy and chris johnson definitely took carries. the whole cardinals offense still doesn’t look right; let’s hope they get back on track week 3 but johnson & ellington were on the field in overtime and that worries me. on the bright side: williams is also their return man to add to his value. don’t cut bait after one week…allen looked good on his td run and is settling in as woodhead light, which is a hoppy sardines-infused dark chocolate almond butter ipa with less calories. flacco likes to throw so allen should remain a flex play, although west is still the bellcow there.cohen could have looked better, but howard was also terrible and the bears simply got owned, so that cohen salvaged some fantasy value is good to see. cohen clearly benefits from being on the field for all the passing the bears will do. so hold him if you added him last week because better days are coming.agholor salvaged some value catching a garbage time td (though based on that score the eagles actually had a chance to win (on a hail mary), so was it really in garbage time?)razzball football’s partner fa...





trevor siemian, waiver wire, 2017 fantasy football

hopefully you took my advice from last week’s post and grabbed chris thompson. he was the fifth highest scoring running back with 25.9 points in ppr leagues. tarik cohen also had himself a day against the bucs. the loss of wr kevin white lead to cohen getting 8 receptions again. mohamed sanu again had a pretty nice game with 13.5 points against green bay. and even old dog philip rivers had another 17+ point day for the chargers. below you’ll find your under-owned players who you should either grab for this week — or for the long term. if you’ve got any league-specific questions, hit me up in the comments section!razzball football’s partner fantasydraft is starting a new sign-up promotion this week, all new depositing signups receive a free $4 “everyone wins” nfl gpp ticket for the upcoming sunday slate along with offering all players 4% cash back on their initial deposits! quarterbackscarson wentz, phi, 45.8% owned: wentz burning the redskins for 307 yards and 2 td’s in his week 1 match-up lead me to recommend another 2nd year qb in jared goff against the redskins in week 2. unfortunately i should’ve just recommended wentz himself! wentz was the second highest scoring qb of week 2 with 24.8 points on 333 yards and another pair of tds against the chiefs. wentz will get a tougher opponent in week 3 facing the giants, but you can still expect wentz to be one of the most added backup qbs going forward as we enter the bye weeks. i don’t think we’ll ...
