With another week of action behind us, and some more fresh statistics to analyze, I’m here to help you with your toughest fantasy betting start / decision for week 1
4 in the NFL season .
Remarks: If you do not see any of your players mentioned below, refer to our ranking . Once we have come to the “deep league” section, I no longer offer suggestions for sitting, because … you do not need to tell you to sit no. 45 back in a week.
Sony Michel, RB, New England Patriots
Excluding a week 7 game where Michel ended early due to injury, he is on average 20.0 touches and 15, 2 fantasy points per game during their last six matches. Looking forward to the LeGarrette Blount role, he has a perfect matchup this week, favored by seven points against a Miami defense giving up fifth most rushing fantasy prize per game to oppose spine.
“When Jack Doyle has missed time, Ebron enters 19.3 expected fantasy points per game, 10.5 goals per game and 1, 5 goals at the end of each game. In a full season, and among all recipients, these numbers would rank second, fourth and first. “
Ebron is not only a must-start as a TE1, but he also ranks top 40 in my river rankings.
Philip Rivers, QB, Los Angeles Chargers
Rivers have thrown for several touchdowns in each game this year, and are currently leading all quarterbacks in passenger yards by dropback (8,48). Although the volume has been a concern in recent weeks, it has not played any part in imagination, and it is unlikely that there will be no part of a Bengal defense giving the most fancy prize per game to opposite quarterbacks.
Amari Cooper, WR, Dallas Cowboys
Since Coopers first start in Dallas (Week 9), he ranks top 10 among wide recipients in both expected and actual fantasy points. This week he draws a badly injured Philadelphia secondary who surrenders the next most fancy prize per game to oppose wide recipients.
Corey Davis, WR, Tennessee Titans
Davis has been hit or miss throughout the year, and despite being more “hit” than “miss” recently, he will be one thing a week with Jalen Ramsey projected to shadow. Through three career games against Jacksonville, Davis average only 2.3 fantasy points per game.
Tyler Lockett, WR, Seattle Seahawks
Throughout the year I have falsified prophesying a future regression for Lockett, based on his leading and absurd 3.32 fantasy character per goal. It will be difficult for him to be effective this week, in shadow coverage against Xavier Rhodes. In nine shadow games and against some of the league’s best wide recipients, Rhodes only passes 31.0 meters per game, and Davante Adams is the only recipient who has found the final zone against him.
Kenny Golladay, WR, Detroit Lions
Golladay is not a “sit” of any stretch, but he gets downgraded this week. We are projecting a shadow mode from the league’s best shadowback – Patrick Peterson. Despite this, Golladay can overcome the tough match at good volume (he is on average 11.0 goals per game over his last four matches) or about 30% of his routes he runs from the castle.
Jackson, RB, Los Angeles Chargers
Jackson reached 82m offense last week, but he had only nine possibilities. I’m sure he’ll see more jobs this week (if Melvin Gordon is out), but I’m not sure he’ll see more than Austin Ekeler, and I’m doubtful he’d look enough to make him worthy of a start in shallow leagues. I have Jackson as an intermediate level RB3 in my ranking.
Chris Godwin, WR, Tampa Bay Buccaneers
In the four matches, DeSean Jackson or Mike Evans have missed the last two years, Godwin average 8.5 goals and 17.5 fantasy points per game. Godwin is our 12th highest rated broad receiver this year and ranks 23rd (out of 93 wide recipients) in lap per race. This week, with Jackson probably, he draws a New Orleans defense giving up the most fantasy points per game to oppose wide recipients and the most scheduled fantasy points per game to oppose WR2s.
Jaylen Samuels, RB / TE, Pittsburgh Steelers
I think Samuels is a good game this week, with James Conner out, but probably not a must game as we have seen from Pittsburgh’s backup back earlier (like DeAngelo Williams ). Although Samuels has gotten the name of the starter, it seems clear, by this tweet he will work in a committee with Stevan Ridley. I think Ridley, who has been more moved than Samuel’s this year, could get the majority of the team’s wear, although Samuels (who had more reception than attending college attempts) is likely to dominate the work as a recipient. That means Ridley can get better matchup, as Pittsburgh is favored by 10.5 points against Oaklands Run-Defend defense. I still suspect that Samuels will have the better role everywhere and be more productive. Among the tight ends, I have only five players ranked before Samuels. Among backbones, he is a mid-range RB2, while Ridley sets some levels below him as an advanced RB4.
D. J. Moore, WR, Carolina Panthers
In the past three weeks, Moore ranks eighth among wide recipients in fantasy points and 12th in goal. With Greg Olsen now on IR, there is little reason to suspect things slowly this week, and especially with CB Denzel Ward still in the concussion protocol. Even with Ward-Health, Cleveland ranked already third in the schematic-adjusted fantasy character per game to oppose WR1s – and in recent weeks it has been Moore and not Devin Funchess.
Jameis Winston, QB, Tampa Bay Buccaneers  Winston and Ryan Fitzpatrick combine an average of 26.3 fantasy points per game. If taken as a quarterback, that number would be ranked second best this year and fourth best of all time. This week, Winston draws a defense of Saints who rank fourth worst in fantasy points per game (22.2) and sixth worst in opposing pass rating (103.1). Although Winston is likely to slow down (or be bent) may be higher than for most QB1, his roof is high in a 56.0-point game over / under, and he is still worth starting as a mid-range QB1. Jeff Wilson Jr., RB, San Francisco 49ers
Matt Breida played at only 10 snaps in week 13, breastfeeding an injury and has already been eliminated for week 14. In relief, Wilson played 54 of the other 66 snaps, drawing 15 berries and nine goals while scoring 21.4 fantasy points. It’s RB1 volume and production, but it’s not a lock, his role is just as good this week. Still, I think he is worth to start in most leagues like a French RB2.
Baltimore Ravens Broad Receiver
If Joe Flacco does not start this week, Baltimore recipients will be better avoided. Over the team’s last three matches, with Lamar Jackson starting, Michael Crabtree leads the big recipients in fantasy points per game, with an average of only 6.5.
Sterling Shepard, WR, New York Giants
During their last five games, Shepard average only 5.0 goals, 26.0 yards and 7.0 fantasy points per game. In a neutral matchup this week (Washington ranked 16th in Fantasy Points per game allowed to oppose wide recipients), Shepard is better on the left of your bench.
Robby Anderson, WR, New York Jets
This is easy. Anderson has not reached two-digit fantasy character since week 5, and this week we project Three Davious White to shadow. White leads all 58-qualified cornerbacks in fantasy points allowed per route in coverage, despite shading many of the league’s best wide recipients.
Tevin Coleman, RB, Atlanta Falcons
Coleman counts only 9.7 touches per game over his last three games, with Ito Smith on average 7.3. Atlanta has obviously abandoned the running game, and when they turn to a back, they use them in an almost perfectly even split.
Courtland Sutton, WR, Denver Broncos
With Emmanuel Sanders and his 8.2 goals per game now out for the year, Sutton may encounter a level in my rankings. Excluding Sutton, Denver is now without its most, second most and third-party recipients. Denver will not have much of a choice without looking at Sutton’s way often when trying to pass. I have him as an advanced WR3 a week.
Spencer Ware, RB, Kansas City Chiefs
Last week, Ware saw 14, one goal and three opportunities within the team’s 10-yard line. All other driving runs combined for just five berries, two goals and zero possibilities within 10. That volume is good enough to solidify Ware as a low-end RB2 forward. He will not be anywhere near as effective as Kareem Hunt, and he will be much more touchdown-dependent, but he is leading back and primary finish line options for the league’s most effective crimes.
Bruce Ellington, WR, Detroit Lions
Although production has not been there, Ellington has seen score scores of nine, seven and 10 since Marvin Jones’s injury. This week, with Patrick Peterson likely to shadow Kenny Golladay on the majority of his perimeter routes, this should open more opportunities for Ellington in the track. Arizona already gives up the fourth most fancy prize per game to oppose wide recipients.
LeGarrette Blount / Kerryon Johnson, RB, Detroit Lions
With Detroit already mathematically eliminated from the after-seasons, it seems unlikely that the team will hurry Johnson back into the set-up, but if he plays he is worth starting as an advanced RB2 . If he is out, Blount is worth starting as an intermediate class RB3. In two losses in the last two weeks, Blount totals 36 touch, 164 meters and two touchdowns. Detroit is favored by three points a week against a cardinal defense giving up the most rushing fantasy points per game to the enemy who runs the back.
Zay Jones, WR, Buffalo Bills
Since week 6, Jones ranked 22nd next to recipient in expected fantasy points per game (13.0). Although his production has not been as good as his volume over this span, it’s good reason to believe both are better in the week. The release of Kelvin Benjamin and Andre Holmes should lead to more goals for Jones, as well as this week’s matchup. Jetsna gives up the most fancy prize per game to play wide recipients, but the 12th to the widest recipients. He is still just a WR4, but if he is desperate he can still be available in your league.
