“Week Three” Sunday Morning Fantasy Advice and Injury Update

The NFL kicks off its first Sunday Early Slate of games1pm-kick-offs at 1 PM ET

Now is the time to finalize those last minute Fantasy line-ups and tune into your favorite Network Pre-Game shows and Sunday Morning Fantasy shows for the absolute latest in all NFL news, last second Fantasy suggestions and Injury Reports.

Since I posted my Week 3 Player selections for DraftKings and Fan Duel, there have been dozens of updates from all my fantasy sources and I was able to accumulate a few additional names to consider.

After all that, here are the basic players I’m sticking with for my numerous Week 3 Line-ups. I use different combinations of all these players (in different line ups) in order to maximize my potential.

This year I’m introducing BOLD PLAY’s on my Sunday morning report.

My Sunday morning reports will always have latest injury news, my top weekly plays listed and all players highlighted in BOLD are must plays. Some may very obvious plays, the others are just plain bold choices who could excel or fall flat on their faces.

Get as many Bold Plays into your line ups as possible……….

“Players in Bold, are Sunday must plays”

D Prescott DAL QB v CHI (CHI DEF is thin with injuries)

D Carr OAK QB v TEN (OAK can score/and they can’t stop anyone)

E Elliott DAL RB v CHI (see D Prescott)

C Michael SEA RB (starting for T Rawls v SF DEF)

M Gordon SD RB v IND (no Woodhead, now has a firm hold on all RB touches)

J Landry MIA WR v CLE (playing CLE)

 A Cooper OAK WR (see D Carr)

T Benjamin SD WR v IND (last man standing)

T Williams SD WR v IND (last man standing)

D Bryant DAL WR v CHI (see D Prescott)

P Dorsett IND WR v SD (could be last standing IND WR)

Q Enunwa NYJ WR v KC (Has looked great and B Marshall has knee)

C Walford OAK TE v TEN ( TEN DEF very suspect v TE & WR’s)

D Allen IND TE (A Luck needs targets)

Pitta BAL TE (vs JAX DEF and projected low ownership this week)

MIA DEF v CLE ( CLE on 3rd QB this year)

DAL DEF v CHI (This game could get really ugly for CHI)

Also do whatever you can can to work any Monday Night combatants (should be a high scoring game) into your line-ups.  D Brees NO QB, B Cooks NO WR, M Ingram NO RB, T Cadet  NO RB, Matt Ryan ATL QB, J Jones ATL WR, D Freeman ATL RB, T Coleman ATL RB, J Tamme ATL TE. This will most likely be a shoot-out under the dome in New Orleans.

As always closely monitor the ACTIVE/INACTIVE reports prior to Kick-off, make sure everyone you are starting is playing…….

Key Injuries to closely monitor this morning:  Q = questionable, D = doubtful, GTD = game time decision

D Walker TEN TE Q, A Jeffery CHI WR Q, B Marshall NYJ WR GTD, TY Hilton IND Q, J Charles KC RB D, J Cutler CHI QB D, T Rawls SEA RB D, D Parker MIA WR Q, T Lockett SEA WR Q, E Ebron DET TE Q, C Ivory JAX RB Q, K Wright TEN WR Q

W Snead NO WR GTD plays Monday Night, I wouldn’t play him on Fan Duel

Players Definitely Out:

R Jennings NYG RB is out, A Gates SD TE is out, S Watkins BUF WR is out, J Stewart CAR RB is out, D Moncreif IND WR is out, C Coleman CLE is out, D Martin TB RB is out, A Foster MIA RB is out, Z Ertz PHI TE is out, Eifort CIN TE is out, D Woodhead SD RB is out, A Abdullah DET RB is out, J McCown CLE QB is out, A Peterson MIN RB is out, K Allen SD WR is out, D McFadden DAL RB is out, T Romo DAL QB is out, T Bridgewater MIN QB is out, T Brady NE is out.

As always I wish everyone who has a fantasy line up today—GOOD LUCK………….

DraftKings Week 3 NFL Line Up advice

Week 3 DraftKings Line Up Suggestions and Stacking advice.

Welcome to Week 3 on DraftKings….

Note: Updated September 21, 2016

Now that we have a week of NFL fantasy under our belts, we can maybe see a couple of trends developing? We haven’t seen everything, but we can sorta notice (we’re still mostly guessing at this point) how some things are developing.

Vegas has set some very low scoring overs for week 3, they seem to think scoring will be low this week with many notable defensive games. In fact there are 8 games projected to have total scoring of 44 points or less.

Week 3 Game Lines:

Higher Scoring Games: ATL at NO -3 (54), SD at IND -3 (52), DET at GB -7.5 (48), WAS at NYG -4.5 (46), OAK at TEN -1.5 (47)

Low Scoring Games: CLE at MIA -9.5 (41.5), MIN at CAR -7 (43), SF at SEA -9.5 (40), DEN at CIN -3 (41)

A few thoughts about the Week Three players and match-ups:

Week 2 saw a lot of anticipated fantasy scoring fail to materialize. Who knew that Saints and Giants could actually play some defense? Who knew the rain/wet conditions in Pittsburgh would affect the aerial attacks of the Steelers and Bengals to the extent it did?  Those 2 games alone severely hampered and disappointed many fantasy players.

Injuries also dotted the NFL landscape with several notable players going down in week 2.

Running back’s took the brunt of the mayhem with A Peterson MIN, A Foster MIA, D Martin TB, A Abdulah DET, J Stewart CAR and D Whitehead SD leading the list.

Injured Wide Receivers: D Moncrief IND and D Baldwin SEA.

Injured Quarterbacks: J Cutler CHI and J McCown CLE.

The Atlanta at New Orleans should be the game fantasy players key in on Monday Night. Make sure you have exposure in this one. Brees, Cooks, Snead, Ryan, Julio and Freeman all should be considered.

I’m also liking the Miami offense this week, namely R Tannehill QB, J Landry WR, D Parker WR and J Ajayi RB (monitor A Fosters status) all having a good days against the Cleveland Defense.

Start the MIA DEF against the Browns.

Matt Forte NYJ RB looks like he is 25 again, ride him again this week. Q Enunwa NYJ WR is also an interesting play, most defenses pay so much attention to B Marshall and E Decker he is often forgotten in coverage.

The SD at IND should also have a few nice fantasy plays. Play P Rivers SD QB and stack him with T Benjamin SD WR. A Gates SD TE should see even more targets with D Woodhead RB now on IR.

P Dorsett IND WR and D Allen IND TE will also be seeing more targets from A Luck IND QB with D Moncrief IND WR status still unknown at this time.

OAK at TEN should also be another battle of porous Defenses, make sure you get D Carr OAK QB, A Cooper OAK WR, L Murray OAK RB, M Mariota TEN QB, D Murray TEN RB, T Sharpe TEN WR and D Walker TEN TE added to your lineups wherever possible.

The Sunday night game features CHI at DAL. Chicago looked worse than Cleveland on Monday night. Start the DAL DEF (no J Cutler for CHI and B Hoyer is starting?) and this could be finally be the week that D Prescott and D Bryant finally hook up for a couple of long scores. E Elliott should have a excellent rushing game in the 2nd half with a big lead.

D Washington DET RB will be starting in  A Abdulahs place.

F Whittaker CAR RB will start in J Stewarts place.

“Week Two” Sunday Morning Fantasy Advice and Injury Update

The NFL kicks off its first Sunday Early Slate of games1pm-kick-offs at 1 PM ET

Now is the time to finalize those last minute Fantasy line-ups and tune into your favorite Network Pre-Game shows for the absolute latest in all NFL news, last second Fantasy suggestions and Injury Reports.

Since I posted my Week One Player selections for DraftKings and Fan Duel, there have been dozens of updates from all my fantasy sources and I was able to accumulate a few additional names to consider.

After all that, here are the basic players I’m sticking with for my numerous Week 2 Line-ups. I use different combinations of all these players (in different line ups) in order to maximize my potential.

This year I’m introducing BOLD PLAY’s on my Sunday morning report.

My Sunday morning reports will always have latest injury news, my top weekly plays listed and all players highlighted in BOLD are must plays. Some may very obvious plays, the others are just plain bold choices who could excel or fall flat on their faces. Get as many Bold Plays into your line ups as possible.

The Monday Night game of PHI at CHI could be a stinker, the Vegas line has CHI as a -3 favorite with an over of just 42.5…. However, there are a couple of players on Monday night that you could put your line ups over the top with some late week fantasy scoring. I’m sprinkling in at least one of these players into my SUN. / MON. tournament line ups:

A Jeffery CHI WR, J Langford CHI RB, R Mathews PHI RB, J Matthews PHI WR, B Celek PHI TE and K White CHI WR. I think A Jeffery is your best play on Monday Night.

“Players in Bold, are Sunday must plays”

E Manning NYG QB / D Brees NO QB The Saints and Giants scored almost a 100 points total when they played last season, either guy would be a great play.

D Prescott DAL QB (Still a Value play on all sites)

T Rawls SEA RB (he was named as the starting RB this week)

L Blount NE RB (Patriots will use him to kill clock in 2nd half)

T J Yeldon JAX RB (no C Ivory this week)

A Brown PIT WR (he is a weekly play, work him in somehow)

O Beckham Jr NYG WR (see Manning/Brees comment)

B Cooks NO WR (see Manning/Brees comment)

T Benjamin SD WR (should be targeted a lot without K Allen in Chargers line up)

A Cooper OAK WR

A Robinson JAX WR

AJ Green CIN WR (vs PIT)

E Rogers PIT WR (vs CIN)

T Sharpe TEN WR (still a great value)

CJ Uzomah CIN TE (use to open salary space)

C Walford OAK TE (use to open salary space)

SEA DEF 

CAR DEF

As always closely monitor the ACTIVE/INACTIVE reports prior to Kick-off, make sure everyone you are starting is playing…….

It looks like J Jones ATL WR and D Freeman ATL RB are good to go today.

Russell Wilson will be starting for the Seahawks and TE J Graham will likely be more involved in the Seahawks offense. The SEA DEF is a great play today vs the LA Rams. T Rawls will be starting at RB for the Seahawks today.

R Gronkowski NE TE is still a Game Time decision, probably won’t play.

J Charles KC RB won’t play in week 2 but may return in week 3, start S Ware KC RB this week.

C Ivory JAX RB is out, start TJ Yeldon JAX RB in his place.

Key Injuries to Monitor:  TY Hilton IND WR, J Stewart CAR RB, M Sanu ATL WR, R Gronkowski NE TE, D Thomas DEN WR, S Watkins BUF WR, J Thomas JAX TE, C Ivory JAX RB, J Charles KC RB, Z Ertz PHI TE,

K Allen SD WR is out, D McFadden DAL RB is out, T Eifort CIN TE is out, T Romo DAL QB is out, T Bridgewater MIN QB is out, T Brady NE is out.

As always I wish everyone who has a fantasy line up today—GOOD LUCK………….

There’s still plenty of time to get your line-ups in before today’s KICK OFF’s on DraftKings and Fan Duel

DraftKings Week 2 NFL Line Up advice

Week 2 DraftKings Line Up Suggestions and Stacking advice.

Welcome to Week 2 on DraftKings….

Note: I’ll be updating this post as more information becomes available

Now that we have a week of NFL fantasy under our belts, we can maybe see a couple of trends developing? We haven’t seen everything, but we can sorta notice (we’re still mostly guessing at this point) how some things are developing.

Vegas has set some very high scoring overs for week 2, they seem to think scoring will be up in 2016, so I am looking at some very high scores for us fantasy guys this week.

Week 2 Game Lines:

Higher Scoring Games: TEN at DET -5.5 (47), CIN at PIT -5 (47.5), NO at NYG -5 (52.5), TAM at ARI -6.5 (50), SF at CAR -14 (48.5), ATL at OAK-4.5 (48)

Low Scoring Games: PHI at CHI -3 (42.5), MIA at NE -6.5 (41.5)

A few thoughts about the Week Two players and match-ups:

I benefited greatly using D Williams PIT RB and A Brown PIT WR on Monday Night on week one, I’m going to ride the Steelers offensive studs until further notice. AJ Green CIN WR excelled in week one, expect him to see numerous opportunities in a high scoring game with the Steelers this week.

Until further notice start whatever defensive team is playing the LA Rams, this week it’s the Seattle Seahawks.

SF is at CAR this week, The 49er DEF held the LA Rams to 0 points. The Panthers are not the Rams. I’m looking at C Newton QB,  K Benjamin WR, G Olsen TE, T Ginn WR and J Stewart RB all as very playable this week at home.

S Ware RB KC had a great week one against the Chargers, He’s up against a better HOU DEF this week and we still don’t know if J Charles will be available. Start Ware, but don’t expect a 30 point game.

JAX is visiting SD this week, I’m liking the Jaguars to rebound from their week one loss to GB in a big way. B Bortles JAX QB, A Robinson JAX WR and A Hurns JAX WR should put up bigger numbers against he Chargers DEF this week. K Allen SD WR was put on the IR with a knee after week one, this makes T Benjamin SD WR, T Williams SD WR and A Gates SD TE more viable targets for P Rivers SD QB to throw to.

Arizona lost to NE on Sunday night, look for the Cardinals to take out some revenge against TB this week. Make sure you get D Johnson ARI RB, L Fitzgerald ARI WR and M Floyd ARI WR in your line ups,  I can see J Winston TB QB throwing an awful lot to play catch up with M Evans TB WR being the big target for Winston.

T Sharpe TEN WR didn’t disappoint in week one, look for him to continue to prosper this week against DET.

D Prescott DAL QB had an okay ( 10.3 fp’s) first start for the Cowboys, his price increased to 5800 on week 2, which is still a great value for the starting QB on a good offensive team in what should be a high scoring game against Washington.

My Sunday morning reports will always have latest injury news, my top weekly plays listed and all players highlighted in BOLD are must plays. Some may very obvious plays, the others are just plain bold choices who could excel or fall flat on their faces.

The Monday night game of PIT at WAS should be the highest scoring game of the week and you do want exposure in that game. Make sure you include Roethlisberger/Brown and or Cousins/Reed Stacks. My complete Monday Night Line up recommendations.

“Players in Bold, are Sunday must plays”

Dak Prescott DAL QB (he is the best QB Value in week one)

B Bortles JAX QB, B Roethlisberger PIT QB, K Cousins WAS QB

Spencer Ware KC RB (best RB value in week one)

J Langford CHI RB

D Williams PIT RB

D Bryant DAL WR

A Robinson JAX WR

A Brown PIT WR (using the BOLD Plays make him very affordable)

T Sharpe TEN WR (Great Value)

J Reed WAS TE

V McDonald SF TE

KC DEF

As always closely monitor the ACTIVE/INACTIVE reports prior to Kick-off, make sure everyone you are starting is playing……..

Key Players to Monitor:  C Hyde SF RB, J Jones ATL WR, B Marshall NYJ WR, J Graham SEA TE, C Ivory JAX RB,  K Wright  TEN WR

J Charles KC RB is now Doubtful, he probably wont play.

M Wheaton PIT WR is out on Monday night.

A Luck IND QB was limited all week in practice, monitor closely but he is expected to play.

C Michael SEA RB will be the lead back for the Seahawks and T Rawls SEA RB role may be limited as back-up.

R Gronkowski NE TE was reported to be out of Sundays game on Friday and did not travel with team to Arizona.

K White CHI WR is now questionable.

D Parker MIA WR is questionable.

S Bradford MIN QB will not play Sunday unless absolutely needed, S Hill QB is starting for MIN.

D McFadden DAL RB is out, T Eifort CIN TE is out, T Romo DAL QB is out, T Bridgewater MIN QB is out, T Brady NE is out.

As always I wish everyone who has a fantasy line up today—GOOD LUCK………….

DK Live

Draftkings introduced a new App “DK Live”on the first Thursday Night Game of 2016.

DK Live is a new way to monitor every real game for up to date Fantasy Scoring on DraftKings.

On the App you can choose the game you want to monitor and see how the key players are scoring on DraftKings live as it happens.

The live scoring is play by play and player fantasy scoring is shown at the bottom of each plays description.

This App is free to download on your App store.

It worked great with just the one live NFL game last night, I only had a couple select players going but was able to see how each play affected my fantasy scoring. I’m going to use this Sunday to see how it works with several games playing at the same time.

You can also access updated league wide fantasy news right from the app.

Get scoring highlights, (no Video) which include fantasy impact from any game and link to your DK account directly.

DraftKings Adds Thursday Start Week One Contests

DraftKings has added their Week One Thursday Start NFL Week One Contests.

Why did it take so long? DraftKings has always offered preseason Fantasy Football and to avoid the confusion of the various start days of  the NFL preseason schedule, DK has traditionally waited until the very end of the preseason schedule to post their complete week one NFL contest schedule.

The Thursday Night Kick off game features Carolina at Denver. This should be a tough defensive struggle and you should probably temper your enthusiasm for a high scoring contest.

Whatever you decide, do not load up on CAR and DEN skill players. You cannot win week one on one Thursday night game, you can however lose week one if it turns out to be a low scoring game.

Be selective and stick to one or two players only, you still have 13 other games to choose your line up from. (Complete Week One line up advice)

Players to watch on Thursday Night: C Newton CAR QB 7700, T Ginn CAR WR 4100, G Olsen CAR TE 5100, CAR DEF 3800, DEN DEF 3700.

DraftKings will give you a free entry to the NFL $5 Million Dollar Week One Millionaire when you join and deposit today.

DraftKings Week One NFL Line Up advice

Week One DraftKings Line Up Suggestions and Stacking advice.

Welcome to Week One on DraftKings….

Updated: September 7, 2016

Now that the NFL preseason is coming to an end, it’s time to start your in-depth line up research and begin setting those week one line ups. Here are the Always Rules that I use to help me in my line up decision making process.

Week One in the NFL is usually one of the hardest weeks to handicap for fantasy purposes, no one really knows how good any real team will be (offensively or defensively), no one knows the exact plans or strategies the coaching staffs will use and it will take us fantasy players a couple of weeks of regular season game action to actually know what is what, who is who and until then, it’s just a guessing game.

Vegas has set some very high scoring overs for week one, they seem to think scoring will be up in 2016, so I am looking at some very high scores for us fantasy guys this week.

A few thoughts about the Week One match-ups:

I’m looking at the Colts taking some liberties with the Lion defense this week, so Andrew Luck combined with his talented receiving corps should put up big points.

In this game I’m also thinking that M Jones Jr. DET WR will continue to stand out as M Staffords deep guy (without Megatron this year), he has so far in camp and he has been turning heads around the league.

I really like the Stacks of B Bortles/ A Robinson JAX and Cousins/Reed WAS (Monday Night) to continue their excellent play as shown last year.

It looks like J Charles KC RB will not play in week one, this makes S Ware KC RB 4400 a must start in your line ups.

Dak Prescott DAL QB 5000 has been named starter to replace T Romo DAL QB who is expected to miss 6 to 10 weeks. Prescott has been outstanding in preseason and seems very comfortable leading the Cowboys. Although he is untested, he could easily put up 18 to 20 fantasy points this week and would be an extremely valuable play until his price increases in weeks 2 and 3.

C Ivory JAX RB should find plenty of running room for the Jaguars this year, courtesy of the deep threats of JAX WR’s Robinson and Hurns.

OAK at NO could also provide some fireworks on both sides, I think the younger Raider offense can put up some big points against the weaker Saints Defense this week.

You should also consider using L Blount NE RB, He will be “the guy” with D Lewis NE RB out in week one and beyond? No one really knows if J Garoppolo NE QB will be up to the task while he starts during Tom Bradys 4 game suspension. You would think there would be more touches for Blount, but who really knows what Coach Belichick is thinking. Blount has a great history of Goal Line touches and scores, this could be his opportunity to really shine. Also, without Tom Brady, I’d lower my expectations for any NE receivers, including Gronk until further notice.

As soon as the Monday night contests are posted on DraftKings, lean on Big Ben, Antonio Brown and D Williams as stack options. K Cousins WAS QB and J Reed WAS TE also make a nice QB/TE stack on Monday night.

Week One Game Lines:

OAK at NO-1 (50.5), GB -4.5 at JAX (47), NYG at DAL -3.5 (49.5), DET at IND -5 (49), NE at ARI -5.5 (Sunday night) (48), PIT -3 at WAS (Monday night) (50.5).

Top defensive games: MIN -3 at TEN (42) and SD at KC -7 (43)
