by Armando Marsal
For those who survived the last two weeks of byes, congratulations. This week we only have four teams on bye, but we also have some players who will not play due to injuries or suspension. Mike Evans has been suspended for Week 10, which could put Adam Humphries in a situation to receive a bigger ro...

                   Waiver Wire Gemstones: Week 10                    College Fantasy Football     Dear CFB Fantasy Diehards: Unfortunately, my teaching schedule and family commitments prevent me from writing a column this week. Nonetheless, I wanted to provide some players to invest in off...

Week 9 is behind us and we were able to get through it with a small amount of injuries in comparison to past weeks. Fortunately none of the injuries suffered this week appear to be season-ending, however, some players could miss multiple games due to their injuries. Let’s take a look this will impac...

by Armando Marsal
It was not until I began playing DFS that I started using Vegas lines as part of my research and a determining factor when setting up my lineups. These lines can provide so much information each week. It gives you an idea of the potential game flow we could expect. High totals and close spreads, usu...

by Armando Marsal
Focusing on ownership percentages is critical and finding players that have potential to produce similar numbers (or even better) than higher owned players, will put you in a good position to leap frog in tournament standings and give you a better chance to have a unique lineup. Ultimately, that in...

For the past decade or so, the Jacksonville Jaguars have been a perennial punching bag. A tomato can of a football team. The punchline to any number of jokes – several of which I told. But in 2017, the Jaguars are no joke – especially on defense. Through eight weeks, Jacksonville’s “Teal Curtain...

Three DFS players I'm investing heavily in for tournament (GPP) play this week. ... And one I'm not. I'm in: Jared Goff, QB, Los Angeles Rams As ESPN's Field Yates put it, "If you'd like to pay down on quarterback in Week 9, Goff seems like the shrewd move. ..." Hard to argue the point. T...

Player Pos Team Opp Start/Sit Comment Mohamed Sanu WR ATL CAR SIT Sanu has put in 4 startable weeks this year and another over 10 points. This week he goes against Carolina who is ranked 8th against opposing WR2s. This looks like a week to find better options if you can. Dev...

by Armando Marsal
Using the flex position wisely can allow you to differentiate and create unique lineups, more so in weeks like this one. There are six teams on bye and three primetime games, so the main slate only has just 10 games this week and when you also take injuries into consideration, the player pool is thi...

Quick Hits: Week Eight Kenyan Drake & Damien Williams quickly became the hottest RB FA pickups when the Dolphins surprisingly traded their Pro-Bowl RB in Jay Ajayi for a fourth round draft pick. Keep them on your bench until they figure out the pecking order at RB. Leonte Carroo had a decent gam...

Jimmy Garoppolo- QB- 49ers It’s too early to tell whether recently traded Jimmy Garoppolo will have an impact with the 49ers this year, but fantasy owners in keeper and dynasty leagues should look at picking up the former Patriot this week while he’s cheap. In two career starts with New England he ...

Player ' Pos ' Team ' Opponent ' Start / Sit ' Comment Kelvin Benjamin WR BUF NYJ SIT This is probably a gimmie, but maybe not. I suspect his role is limited at best as he looks to get integrated into the offense. He might have some red zone activity, but his playing time is likel...

by Evan Tarracciano
Generally speaking, when comparing the NFL’s trade deadline to other major sports (most notably MLB), it is typically very quiet, and few (if any) Fantasy relevant deals occur. Enter 2017. Perhaps in part due to the rash of injuries which has happened around the league over the past several wee...

Let’s get right to this week’s suggestions. Keep in mind that I use the DraftKings.com as the basis of my write-up and do not include Thursday or Monday games. Good luck! Week 9: QUARTERBACK Top Level Deshaun Watson, HOU vs. Indianapolis Colts ($8,100) – With almost 1,700 yards and 19 TD...

Week 8 was not as injury filled as some of the past weeks, but we still saw a handful of injuries, some of which could force players to miss some time and even the season. As usual, I will go over some of this past week’s injuries and how it may affect teams around the league. Joe Flacco – Raven...

by Armando Marsal
We have a couple of situations which should create some interesting decisions on waivers this week. The 49ers trade for Jimmy Garoppolo and Ezekiel Elliott is set to miss the next six games while he serves his suspension. As far as Garoppolo is concerned, he can be added off of waivers and stashed u...
