FantasySavvy 2015: Week 8, 7UP 7Down

By: Kevin Lewis

7 UP

QB Teddy Bridgewater, Minnesota Vikings (FD $6,900, DK $5,100) Bridgewater picked it up last week with a 300 yard, two TD performance at Detroit last week. He gets another good matchup this week against Chicago who is 29th in sacks and is allowing a 108 QB rating to opposing QB’s.

RB Todd Gurley, St. Louis Rams (FD $8,100, DK $6,300) San Francisco is giving up 4.4 YPC on the road this year and we all know about Gurley’s exploits the last three weeks. Don’t try to be cute and fade him.

RB Justin Forsett, Baltimore Ravens (FD $6,900, DK $6,100) Opposing running backs have scored 10 touchdowns against the Chargers this year and the Chargers have allowed more fantasy points to running backs than every other team in the NFL. Forsett is still relatively cheap so he’s one of my very favorite plays this week.

RB Orleans Darkwa, New York Giants (FD $5,100, DK  $3,600) Darwka hits holes quickly, follows his blocks and finishes his runs with power. Steve DeAngelo discussed this on the radio show last night. The Saints are allowing 6 YPC, Darkwa is set for a bigger workload this week, this could be a sleeper play that pays dividends.

WR Stefon Diggs, Minnesota Vikings (FD $6,700, DK $4,800) He’s emerged of late and the Bears can’t stop the pass. While he will be very popular it will be hard to fade him against a poor Bears secondary.

WR Donte Moncrief, Indianapolis Colts (FD $6,400, DK $5,500) Moncrief should see less of Josh Norman than Hilton, one would think. He’s scored a touchdown in four of the five games Andrew Luck has played this year and he’s still really cheap on both sites.

TE Greg Olsen, Carolina Panthers (FD $6,400, DK $6,500) Greg Olsen is Cam Newton’s go to guy and the Colts have allowed the ninth most points to the position in 2015. With the Colts run defense actually being pretty solid for a change, it’s fair to expect Cam Newton to have to put it up a bit. With that said, play Olsen.

7 Down

QB Aaron Rodgers, Green Bay Panthers (FD $9,000, DK $7,500) It feels suggesting to fade Aaron Rodgers altogether but there are so many guys with better matchups and it’s not like Green Bay’s offense has been clicking on all cylinders recently either. I realize how dangerous it is to fade him altogether but that is exactly what I plan on doing.

WR Randall Cobb, Green Bay Packers (FD $7,600, DK $7,000) Denver has a boatload of elite CBs. I would just avoid the entire Packers passing game altogether. It feels weird as hell to type that but here we are.

RB Chris Ivory, New York Jets (FD $7,700, DK $6,000) The most yardage the Raiders have allowed to an RB this year is 91. Add in the uncertainty with Ivory’s wide array of lower body injuries and he’s an easy fade for me this week

RB Darren McFadden, Dallas Cowboys (FD $6,400, DK $3,800) Just think better of it. I beg you. Or if you’re going to start Darren McFadden make sure you have a bottle of Pepto Bismol nearby.

RB Charcandrick West, Kansas City Chiefs (FD $6,600, DK $4,700) The Lions are actually a pretty good run defense and there isn’t a lot to like about the Chiefs offense these days.

QB Russell Wilson, Seattle Seahawks (FD $7,800, DK $6,300) The Seahawks offense is barely above functional these days. Their OL is an absolute mess and the Cowboys front four is probably the strongest unit on the team. I’m going to avoid Wilson until he gives me a reason not to do so.

QB Brian Hoyer, Cleveland Browns (FD $6,900, DK $5,300) The Titans pass defense isn’t bad and I just feel like Hoyer is due for a dud. I’d look elsewhere in that price range if you absolutely must.

2015 FantasySavvy: 7 UP, 7 Down

By Kevin Lewis:

7 UP

WR Michael Floyd, Arizona Cardinals (FD $4,900, DK $3,200)

He caught a touchdown last week, and was close on a couple of others. He might be the best punt play this week as he goes up against Baltimore’s god awful pass defense.

WR Donte Moncrief, Indianapolis Colts (FD $6,500, DK $5,200)

Moncrief is the most targeted receiver on the Colts and has scored a touchdown in every single game Andrew Luck has played this year. How TY Hilton is STILL more expensive than him is something I can’t figure out but will still exploit. Moncrief will also get a lot of Brandon Browner who has been bad by whatever metric or eye test you want to use.

TE Travis Kelce, Kansas City Chiefs (FD $6,000, DK $4,900)

I really don’t like recommending Kansas city receiving options anymore as they are essentially being imprisoned by their terrible QB. That said, Kelce is still relatively cheap and Pittsburgh has given up the second most fantasy points to tight ends.

QB Ryan Tannehiill, Miami Dolphins (FD $7,700, DK $5,700) Tannehill has been relatively productive of late as he’s thrown seven TDS in his last three games. Houston and Miami both run a ton of plays and Houston gives up the sixth most fantasy points to QBs. Tannehill could be in for a nice day in Miami

WR Eric Decker, New York Jets (FD $6,200, DK $5,300)

I think Belichick is going to load up on stopping Marshall and Ivory. Decker has scored a TD in each of the last six games he’s played for the Jets. I think his ceiling is high for this week especially if the Jwets end up passing more than they want.

TE Ladarius Green,  San Diego Chargers (FD $5,100, DK $2,900)

Oakland is the worst team in the NFL at defending TEs. San Diego passes the ball very well and often and doesn’t run it very well. Antonio Gates will either not suit up or be limited if he does. Do with this information whatever you will. Green is extremely appealing on DK

WR Steve Smith, Baltimore Ravens (FD $6,900, DK $6,200)

Tavon Austin and Martavis Bryant both scored twice against the Ravens. I’m assuming Baltimore’s defense will give up a lot of points which will make a lot of passing necessary. I like his upside this week.

7 Down

HB Jonathan Stewart, Baltimore Ravens (FD $6,700, DK $4,000)

Not only has Stewart been an epic disappointment this year but the Eagles haven’t given up a single touchdown to running backs all year. Look elsewhere.

QB Matt Ryan, Atlanta Falcons (FD $8,100, DK $7,200)

For a guy who hasn’t put up big numbers and is currently handing the ball off to the most prolific back in the league, Ryan is just too damn expensive. Avoid.

WR Amari Cooper, Oakland Raiders (FD $7,300, DK $6,500)

Cooper will likely see a lot of Jason Verett who’s been one of the best CBs in football thus far this year. If I’m going to target a Raiders WR it would be Michael Crabtree who Derek Carr has targeted more than Cooper anyway.

RB Christine Michael, Dallas Cowboys (FD $5,600, DK $3,000)

Just don’t do it to yourself. Please. Don’t.

RB Rashad Jennings, New York Giants (FD $6,300, DK $4,000).

The Dallas run defense is getting a little better and Jennings workload is far too unreliable to rely on. You can find better options in his price range.

QB Sam Bradford, Philadelphia Eagles (FD $7,700, DK $6,100)

Bradford looks bad and the Panthers are giving up the sixth least amount of fantasy points.

WR Jordan Matthews, Philadelphia Eagles (FD $6,600, DK $6,400)

Jordan Matthews has had a rough beginning to the season as he has been inconsistent with his hands and has had a rough time getting open. Bradford is struggling too and I expect this game to be a slugfest. There are better options in his price range that are way less stressful.

FantasySavvy 2015: Week 6 Waiver Selections


Blake Bortles, Jax

Bortles is coming to fruition this season, making better decisions, looking more accurate and showing off his athleticism and big arm. Allen Robinson is a legit WR and Allen Hurns is coming into his own as well. Add in Julius Thomas and of all a sudden this Jaguars offense is somewhat legit. Their Defense is also going to have them playing catch up a plenty, so Bortles should be slinging it almost every game like we saw against the Bucs last week. Blake is looking like a safe start almost every week at this point.

Josh McCown, CLE

Shockingly, Josh McCown has 6 TD’s and nearly 1,000 yards in his last three games with the Browns. Playing bad defenses has helped, but McCown is making some big throws and now has some legit weapons with Travis Benjamin, Gary Barnridge and Duke Johnson. But tread lightly the next three weeks as McCown plays against the Broncos, Rams and Cardinals and his true colors may begin to show.

Brian Hoyer, HOU

After Mallet came out because of hit he took, Hoyer stepped in and didn’t relinquish the job back. Mallet was looking like an angry schoolboy, while Hoyer was throwing TD’s and moving the Texans offense. Hoyer finished with 300 yards passing and two TD’s. Hoyer is better than Mallet, but he isn’t very good. However, with good matchups against the Jaguars, Dolphins and Titans the next three weeks, he could but up some decent performances while throwing to DeAndre Hopkins and dropping it off to Arian Foster.

E.J. Manuel, BUF

Manuel stinks, he isn’t accurate and can’t really scramble all that well. Taylor will be out a few weeks with the MCL sprain, but please avoid Manuel at all costs. He is going to hurt the value of this whole offense.


Charcandrick West & Knile Davis, KC

I lost Charles in 6 leagues yesterday, who was the #1 Fantasy RB on the year so far.  Overly invested? Maybe, but I would do the same thing again for a player like Charles. So as you can see, I am analyzing this pickup this week very studiously.

West was playing ahead of Davis the last couple weeks as Davis has taken a backseat and been subjected to Special teams. There isn’t much tape out there on West, just some highlight videos from him in High School and at Abilene Christian University which almost seemed like watching a High School game.

From what I can tell, West is a good athlete, has good speed can break tackles and can make people miss. But this was Division 2 Football and the athletes in the NFL are obviously way better. But Andy Reid seems to really believe in West, praising his work ethic, saying he’s more similar to Charles (which he is) and using him as Charles’ backup over Davis. West has also said in the past that “He will be better than Charles one day”, so the kid is clearly very confident in his ability and is an extremely hard worker. He is better than Davis in the pass game and reportedly has improved his pass blocking. He should be the main guy, but Davis could get the Goal Line work as he is the bigger back and more suited for that role.

Davis has looked impressive at times in Charles absence in the past, but surprisingly is just averaging about 3.5 YPC, which isn’t good. Davis with a heavy workload is better suited to do damage, but with West in the mix, he likely won’t have too much of an impact outside of most likely getting the GL work. Davis has 12 TD’s since the 2013 season.

Charcandrick is the the guy to own, as he seems like he’s has prepared mightily for this opportunity and has the coaches backing. There is a chance he could completely underwhelm, but if you are a Charles owner, like myself, then you need to invest a good amount in FAAB to grab him and put him #1 on your waivers this week. Davis should follow somewhere close behind.

Regardless, Alex Smith is looking pretty awful despite having two very good weapons in Jeremy Maclin and Travis Kelce, so this offense will likely struggle overall. West could be a nice play in PPR leagues, but in standard he could disappoint with Knile Davis taking GL and short yardage work. Grab West and/or Davis to add to your RB depth and hope that they can help win you some key games down the stretch here.

Lastly, the Chiefs were reportedly working out Pierre Thomas and Ben Tate so that could throw a wrench into everything. If I were the Chiefs I would sign Ahmad Bradshaw and make him the starter tomorrow. If they sign Tate, don’t even bother, he stinks. But Pierre Thomas could be decent.

Antonio Andrews, TEN

Bishop Sankey, Dexter McCluster, and Terrance West all aren’t very good, so Antonio Andrews has the chance to emerge here in a young offense led by Marcus Mariota. Andrews had 55 total yards and TD on Sunday, which isn’t anything mouth watering, but he did get the GL carries and was a factor in the passing game. He could be the next man up here, so give him a shot if you need RB help.


Boobie Dixon, Dan Herron, Zach Zenner


Forte Owners should own Jeremy Langford.


Anquan Boldin & Andre Johnson

Both these guys could be on your wire after weeekssssssss of doing jack. Johnson, silenced some of the haters with two TD’s on Thursday night and there is a chance this could boost him back into relevancy. I would take the shot, I don’t think he’s fully done yet and playing with Luck in this offense, is still intriguing. Snatch him back up, there is a ton of reward here.

Same thing goes for Boldin, he revived this week after doing much of nothing to start the year. Boldin is coming off back to back 1,000 yard seasons with 12 TD’s combined, and looks like he’s got plenty of juice left. Kaepernick looked like he made a few improvements in that Giants game, so there is some hope there as well.

Willie Snead, NO

We have talked about him before, but will bring it up again. Snead is a good WR, has the trust of Drew Brees and is playing over Colston and Brandon Coleman. He is going to be heavily targeted by Brees, go snatch him up if he’s still available in your leagues.

Marquess Wilson, CHI

Wilson was a popular DFS play and pickup last week and he came through for owners with 6 catches for 85 yards and a TD. With Alshon Jeffrey OUT the last two weeks, Wilson has seen 17 targets. But even with the return of Alshon and Royal, Wilson could remain a factor. He is a talented player with good size at 6’4.

Brandon LaFell, NE

LaFell is set to return in Week 7 and should be owned in all leagues at this point, especially if you need WR help. We saw what LaFell did last year with Brady finishing with 950 yards, 7 TD’s in just 13 starts. No other WR has emerged with Edelman, so LaFell, already having a good rapport with Brady, should step in and see success once again.

Be ready to pounce

Dorial Green-Beckham, Jaelen Strong, Philip Dorsett, Stefon Diggs (10 targets in week 4)


Gary Barnridge, CLE

3 Words. Go. Grab. Gary!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!    4th word, Beast!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
