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

in his 16th season, panthers' julius peppers still producing at a high level


the sequence was all too familiar. julius peppers bursting past a helpless offensive tackle, turning the corner with eye-catching athleticism and barreling down on a quarterback who didn't see him coming. when the hit came, the ball popped free.strip-sack. turnover.same old, same old.this was just last week, during peppers' most recent game against the eagles. halapoulivaati vaitai was the vulnerable offensive tackle. carson wentz was the quarterback. but change the jersey numbers, the teams, the year and you'll find plenty of similar highlights. from the time peppers recorded his first sack in 2002 — sorry, mike mcmahon — until last week's mauling of wentz.in fact peppers' most recent sack, bringing his season total to 61/2, was the 150th of his career, making him just the fifth player in






nick foles returns to the eagles. what does it mean for chase daniel?


nick foles is returning to the nfl team where it all started for him.after two seasons playing for two different teams, foles is back with the philadelphia eagles after signing a two-year deal monday morning to back up starting quarterback carson wentz.foles was a third-round draft pick for the eagles in 2012 and went 15-9 as starting quarterback in three seasons with the team. he was traded to the rams, then in st. louis, in 2015 but eventually lost the starting job to case keenum and was released during the following off-season.in 2016, foles served as backup to alex smith in kansas city. the chiefs declined their option on him last week.foles’ return to philadelphia would appear to signal the end chase daniel’s time as a member of the eagles. daniel signed a three-year, $21-million deal






hunt scores 2 tds as chiefs hold on to beat eagles 27-20


kansas city, mo. — the kansas city chiefs followed their offensive-minded upset of the new england patriots by leaning on their stout, opportunistic defense to upend the philadelphia eagles.two wins. two vastly different ways to achieve them."no two games area alike in this league," said alex smith, who threw for 251 yards and a touchdown in their 27-20 victory on sunday. "you have to find ways to make adjustments."six sacks and two interceptions is a good place to start.the chiefs (2-0) simply outscored the patriots in their season opener last week, but they needed three sacks and a pick from defensive tackle chris jones , solid play in a secondary missing star safety eric berry, and some big plays down the stretch to keep the eagles (1-1) at bay.travis kelce had eight catches for 103 yar






nick foles is returning to eagles as backup quarterback


nick foles is returning to the city where he had his most success.the philadelphia eagles agreed to terms on a two-year contract with foles on monday, bringing him back to serve as the backup quarterback for carson wentz two years after former coach chip kelly traded him to st. louis.the 28-year-old foles was drafted in the third round in 2012 by philadelphia under andy reid. he thrived under kelly a year later, going to the pro bowl after having one of the best statistical seasons in nfl history. foles threw 27 touchdown passes and only two interceptions in 10 starts while leading the eagles to an nfc east title that season.the eagles released chase daniel, who signed a $21 million, three-year contract last year.foles was 14-4 as a starter for the eagles in 2013-14. he was 4-7 in 11 start






home-field disadvantage for chargers against eagles


it was surreal. one look at the palm trees towering behind the north end of stubhub center confirmed that the eagles and chargers were playing in california. but the roars and cheers from legions of green-clad fans told both teams otherwise — and reminded the chargers that their house is not yet their home.“we were playing in philadelphia,” chargers cornerback casey hayward said sunday. “that’s what it felt like.”being scorned and booed in their own stadium didn’t feel good to the chargers, who have bigger problems than hearing jeers but still can’t help wonder when they’ll get some love in their new city. their 26-24 loss to the eagles on sunday was their third straight home defeat and dropped their record to 0-4, neither of which will help them win what was, from the start, an uphill and






tracking the early winners and losers in nfl free agency


it's been a busy opening to the nfl's free agent market. here are quick thoughts on some of the early winners and losers:winner: eagles. quarterback carson wentz will have some help in the passing game in his second nfl season after thursday's deals with free agent wide receivers alshon jeffery and torrey smith. the addition of guard chance warmack bolsters the offensive line. there was a long way to go and work remains to be done, but the eagles did get better.losers: adrian peterson, tony romo, jay cutler and colin kaepernick. yes, it's early. but no one seems to be in any rush to sign peterson, cutler or kaepernick. and the cowboys aren't putting romo's decision about his next nfl team completely in his hands, at least not yet. they did not release him thursday, as had been widely expec






chargers vs. eagles: how they match up


chargers (0-3) vs. eagles (2-1)when chargers have the ballthis could (finally) be the week the chargers’ offense lives up to the considerable hype it amassed in the offseason. philadelphia’s star defensive tackle fletcher cox won’t play because of a calf injury and cornerback ronald darby is still out with an ankle issue. the eagles also will be without key reserves on the defensive line and at cornerback, meaning philip rivers should be able to get the offense into a rhythm that doesn’t resemble your awkward parents at a wedding. last weekend, melvin gordon finally looked like the running back who was knocking on the door of 1,000 yards a season ago, and after some rest this week, he’s scheduled for a normal workload. if the eagles sell out to stop gordon, something miami did in week 2, r






nfl notes: cam newton perfect in preseason debut


carolina’s cam newton was perfect in his preseason debut, completing both of his passes for 21 yards and a touchdown in the panthers’ 24-23 victory over the jacksonville jaguars, who might continue their quarterback competition into the preseason finale.chad henne got the start over blake bortles and had an up-and-down night that would have been much better if not for a drop. henne completed eight of 14 passes for 73 yards. he lofted two perfect deep balls to rookie keelan cole and allen robinson, although cole dropped a would-be touchdown for the second time in as many games.bortles completed 12 of 16 for 125 yards, highlighted by a four-yard touchdown pass to shane wynn in the fourth quarter. wentz, cutler impressive in shootoutphiladelphia’s carson wentz and miami’s jay cutler are ready






nfl week 7 storylines: patriots-falcons rematch headlines the lineup


how does hundley beat brees?people hoping for a drew brees-aaron rodgers classic will have to settle for brees vs. brett hundley. the packers' young backup-turned-starter gets a week of first-team practice, a better-fitting game plan and home-field advantage. unfortunately for him, he's not getting a pushover saints defense. new orleans has turned a corner on that side of the ball. in last week's 52-38 win over detroit, the saints scored three defensive tds and had five takeaways.super bowl rematch in new englandpoor atlanta. the falcons won their first three games, including two on the road, and people want to call their 3-2 start a "super bowl hangover." whatever it is, they're back to blowing leads. they've lost first-half leads in back-to-back home losses to afc east teams buffalo and
