A note from the editor,

The fantasy football community is special. It’s supportive, positive and even helpful. Along the way certain people stick out. There are thousands of interactions a week. Sometimes hundreds in a day. The willingness to help others is what I find beautiful. In recent months Samuel Gebhart reached out and asked how he could be of assistance. A selfless act by a man who wanted to get involved. In turn, Samuel is now our graphics guy! After some time he got the itch. The itch to write! So editing and publishing his first article was the least we could do! Thank you Samuel. We appreciate your hard work.

Fantasy Football season playoffs are rapidly approaching, and with the trade deadline come and gone in most formats you’re probably trying to evaluate if you got what it takes to make a run for the title. Or maybe you’re headed for the toilet bowl title! Who knows, but if you’re like me, you have at least one or two leagues in contention. Below you’ll find your league-winner guys with the best playoff outlooks. Players who are going to get you through the gauntlet. This article pertains to weeks 14,15 and week 16 match-ups, and will not include bonafide stud’s like Patrick Mahomes, or Dalvin Cook. If for whatever reason you have them and are not sure if you should start them or not, you’re probably not in playoff contention anyways.

QUARTERBACK

Josh Allen (PIT / DEN / NE)

Buffalo Bills QB Josh Allen

I know I said, “No Stud’s”. But for the first time in a long time, the AFC East looks competitive again! Despite Buffalo’s tough week 14 matchup against the league best Pittsburg Steelers, The Bills seem primed for their first division title in 25 years. Fortunately for Josh Allen fantasy owners, the 2 final rounds of playoffs (Denver and New England) really offer a chance for the 3rd year star to shine as he continues to fight for Buffalo’s 2nd straight playoff appearance. As it stands now, Allen is currently the No.2 QB overall and is on track to throw for 4500 yards with a game average of roughly 280 passing yards. Now sitting at 7-3, Josh Allen and co. do not seem to be deterred one bit by the 5th hardest schedule in the league. Fantasy owners should continue to set-and-forget Allen come playoff time, especially in the final 2 weeks when he faces The Broncos and fellow division rival The Patriots, who both allow more than 220 pass yards a game on average.

Tom Brady ( MIN / ATL / DET)

Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Tom Brady

If the last 20 years have taught us anything, it’s that nothing is scarier than Tom Brady coming back for blood. Newly dubbed “Tampa Brady” continues to raise the bar at the age of 43 week-in and week-out. Currently sitting happily as the #6 QB overall, Brady is in the running for what would be his 4th league MVP award. And it only gets easier from here. Tampa Bay Buccaneers have put together arguably one of the scariest receiver corps the league has seen in the Superbowl era. Whether or not you believe it is besides the point. With the Greatest quarterback of all time under center, Brady fantasy owners (especially those with a QB + WR stack) should feel safe knowing that Week 14,15, and 16 are all against bottom 10 ranked pass defenses.

Jared Goff ( NE / NYJ / SEA )

Los Angeles Rams QB Jared Goff

Sean McVay and the Rams have really been through the gauntlet the first half of the season. In large part, they have their defense to thank for still being in the fight for a division title. Nevertheless, things start to simmer down on the offensive side of the ball on the back end of the season. Most of their match-ups feature opposing teams with powerhouse offenses that make up for defensive inefficiencies. To make up ground, and to compensate for their committee running back corps, expect Goff to throw the ball more frequently and for more pass yards almost effortlessly against the win-less Jets, and the 32nd ranked Seattle Seahawks pass Defense who have allowed a Top 10 QB rating 6 of the first 9 games.

Three other quarterbacks to consider!

Aaron Rodgers ( DET / CAR / TEN)

Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers

Ben Roethlisberger ( BUF / CIN / IND )

Pittsburgh Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger

Ryan Tannehill ( JAX / DET / GB)

Tennessee Titans QB Ryan Tannehill

RUNNING BACKS

David Montgomery ( HOU / MIN / JAX)

Chicago Bears RB David Montgomery

Unfortunately for 2nd year starter, 2020 has (So far) been a year to forget so-to-speak. Through the first 10 weeks, David Montgomery has yet to break 500 yards on the season and currently has only 1 TD under his belt, routinely aggravating fantasy owner’s nationwide. It is tough rationalizing throwing him into the RB1 spot in any league format. However… Futures are bright for the young back as he continues to lead the backfield of arguably the most dysfunctional QB room in the league. Bears offense should continue to check-down to Monte as well as pass it off, especially during the 3 Fantasy playoff match-ups where game scripts will lean on the run heavily. Between Houston, Minnesota, and Jacksonville, 29 rushing TD’s have been allowed through the first 10 weeks, and all 3 rank in the bottom 10 for rush defense routinely allowing top 10 running back performances to opposing teams.

Joe Mixon ( DAL / PIT / HOU )

Cincinnati Bengal’s RB Joe Mixon

Not unlike David Montgomery, Mixon has left fantasy owners frustrated. Especially after coming off his 2nd 1100+ yard season. Expectations were high for him considering he has entered his contract year, but the usually cautious Bengals offense continues to struggle moving the ball down the field. However, also not unlike Monte, Joe Mixon has some favorable fantasy playoff match-ups and owners should be able to relax knowing he will surely continue to pick up speed much like previous seasons wherein he started off slow. Prior to his foot injury, Mixon averaged 20 attempts a game, 8 more than interim starter Giovani Bernard’s average. Providing he is good to go, Mixon should retain high-end RB2 value headed into weeks 14-16 against the 8th easiest opponents for fantasy RB’s.

Clyde Edwards-Helaire ( MIA / NO / ATL )

Kansas City Chiefs rookie RB Clyde Edwards Helaire

Andy Reid and Veach probably didn’t plan on starting Clyde that much this year at all when they drafted him, but after unexpected circumstances forced their hand, it was a welcome surprise to see him fall into place so effortlessly. As if any running back in Andy Reid’s system hasn’t before. The Rookie out of LSU currently sits in the top 15 running back rankings and should be heavily leaned on as the chiefs effortlessly roll through these last few weeks to what they hope will be their 3rd first round bye week in a row. Providing he isn’t still nursing any lingering injuries; Clyde should be a solid RB2 based on his touches alone through the playoffs against a stout Miami and New Orleans Defense. Fantasy owners who make it to the championship game should expect a potential game-winning bounce back game against an Atlanta Defense that currently ranks 31st in average points-against per game.

Ronald Jones (Min / ATL / DET )

Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Ronald Jones II

Kenyan Drake ( NYG /PHI / SF )

Arizona Cardinals RB Kenyan Drake

D’Andre Swift ( GB / TEN / TB )

Detroit Lions rookie RB D’Andre Swift

WIDE RECEIVER

Tyler Lockett ( NYJ / WAS / LAR )

Seattle Seahawks

If inconsistency and Tyler Lockett do not go together best than I’m not sure what does. At least from a fantasy perspective, he always seems to be in the top 5 argument one week and is irrelevant the next. Maybe Russel just spreads the ball by weeks. Who Knows? What we DO know, is despite the Megatron-like DK Metcalf’s dominance, sometimes Defenses figure him out. Take week 10 against division rival the LA Rams as an example. DK was held to 2 receptions and less than 30 total yards. Guess who subsequently had a pretty fair game? Yeah.. And it only gets better from here. First facing the Jets in Week 14, and 2 stout defenses in week 15, and 16, expect Lockett to be leaned on more as defensive backfields continue to attempt to contain DK in these fiery match-ups as Seattle hunts for another division title in arguably the most competitive division in the league.

Allen Robinson II ( HOU / MIN / JAX )

Chicago Bears WR Allen Robinson II

Within the mess of things that is the Chicago Offense lies Allen Robinson who continues to prove himself. Few receivers can experience drastic shifts in QB play and maintain the level of play Robinson has. Now with Mitch Trubisky back in the mix, it appears as if the pro bowl wide out should continue to maximize his potential. Especially after falling from 5-1 to 5-6, expect Trubisky to work hard to not only secure a chance at a wild card birth but also keep his job.

Brandin Cooks: ( CHI /IND / CIN )

Houston Texans WR Brandin Cooks

In less than 1 week from what might be the greatest performance of his Career, Texans WR1 Will Fuller received a suspension for the remainder of the season on abuse of the NFL’s policy on PED’s. Furthermore, the day before this news broke, it was announced that veteran wide receiver Kenny Stills had been released. Now, defacto WR1 Brandin Cooks looks to receive a substantial number of vacated targets from Deshaun Watson who has been stunning teams across the league this last half of the season. Too bad for Houston fans it took this long. Now sitting 3rd in the AFC South at 4-7, its hard to imagine any chance the Texans making the playoffs still remains. But that does not deter Deshaun and the rejuvenated offense as he continues to offer crowd pleasing performances and remain one of the most consistent QB’s in the league who’s averaged 291 yards and 2.5 passing TD’s A GAME. Despite the match-ups, Brandin Cooks’ floor is now high enough that he should be safe to stream for the rest of season as a WR2 with a lot of upside.

A.J. Brown ( JAX / DET / GB )

Tennessee Titan WR A.J. Brown

Jarvis Landry ( BAL / NYG / NYJ )

Cleveland Browns WR Jarvis Landry

Terry McLaurin (SF / SEA / CAR )

Washington Redskins WR Terry McLaurin

TIGHT END

Darren Waller: ( IND / LAC / MIA )

Las Vegas Raiders TE Darren Waller

Most TE’s are fairly interchangeable. Everyone has their week on any given Sunday but generally speaking no one really becomes a regular rest of season set-and-forget type guy outside of the top 5 or 6 TE’s. Waller, however, is one of those guys who has broken that threshold. Unfortunately, The Raiders have experienced a variety of difficulties recently, including an abundance of offensive turnovers. His fantasy playoff match-ups are not particularly great either. But at the end of the day, all things considered, when Carr is in a pinch and the run game is struggling, Waller is one of his go-to check down targets. So, in terms of Tight End’s, Waller can be trusted to put up modest but useful numbers in these few games as he has throughout the season despite what the match-up might look like. Providing the turnover problem is resolved, Darren Waller’s high snap count and target rate is reassuring that he usually isn’t a Touchdown dependent fantasy asset. Although it does help.

Hunter Henry: ( ATL / LV / DEN )

Los Angeles Chargers TE Hunter Henry

Much Like Darren Waller, Hunter Henry sees a large snap count and target percentage. Even when Phillip Rivers was at the helm, Henry has always maintained a pivotal role in the offense being one of the most versatile players on the team. His ability to run routes, block, and catch makes him a true Swiss army knife. Unfortunately, he has only eclipsed more than 50 yards twice on the season, but lucky for his fantasy owners he is currently on a streak of 3 straight weeks with double digit scores as he continues to be one of Justin Herbert favorite check down targets. Henry will keep up the momentum as he wraps up a huge contract year on a franchise tag thanks to the new rookie sensation QB1 Justin Herbert.

T.J. Hockenson ( CHI / GB / TEN )

Detroit Lions TE T.J. Hockenson

Mark Andrews ( CLE / JAX / NYG )

Baltimore Ravens TE Mark Andrews

I Hate Fantasy Football Players THE END!

I Hate Fantasy Football Players pt. 3
10/3/20
Chris Robin https://twitter.com/DetroitBeastie

When’s the last time a sequel was better then the original? When you enter into trilogy territory that’s when you know you’ve got a hit!

Star Wars, Lord of the Rings, The Godfather, Back to the Future and The Mighty Ducks are all on the list of greatest movie combos ever. If you’re into 1980’s horror slasher flicks like me, then a trilogy has a greater meaning! Halloween, Friday the 13th and Nightmare on Elm Street.

I’ve always antiquated football with the fall. The fall with horror movies. I Hate Fantasy Football Players deserved a third part thus, making it a trilogy. When discussing horror movie trilogies there are a few rules to discuss.

If you missed the first two here there are! https://www.dfscheatsheet.com/i-hate-fantasy-football-players/nfl/05/

Here is #2! https://www.dfscheatsheet.com/i-still-hate-fantasy-football-players/nfl/05/

 

1. Sex = Death
2. Don’t drink and do drugs
3. Never say “I’ll be right back!”
4. Sequels are always bigger and bloodier
5. Sequel killers are basically superhuman
6. Anyone can die in a sequel

On social media you see everything! On social media anything goes. I look at fantasy football on Twitter and Facebook as being in an actual horror movie! The owners listed below are the same as a masked man carrying a large knife! They will chase you down, cause anxiety and murder your fantasy football joy!

1. Glad it’s a free league guy

I’m no big shot. I truly understand the excitement of drafting and building a team. Certain website allow you to draft at an instant. In turn you get people racking up 20-25+ free leagues and deserting most of them by week 3. Not to be rude but that’s none of my business. What is our business are all the preposterous trade offer screen shots littering social media. I don’t know about you but it tests my patience. Would you send and accept half the offers you receive if your current home league was free?

2. “Thoughts” guy

Literally the worst! From what I’ve seen a lot of fantasy football groups on social media have banned this exact statement! Made this trade, thoughts? Most of these questions don’t include league size, scoring format or current roster. At this point in the article hopefully you’re upset. Just as pissed as I am! Please dear Lord don’t be thoughts guy! It’s lazy and upsets people! Most of the time there is a huge fight in the comment section. People get upset and they answer with a smartass reply. That leads to more smartass comments and before you know it there’s a full blown Royal Rumble going on.

3. Will I win guy?

My worst fear!

If you have to ask probably not. Before we jump to conclusions I do get the idea. Some of us are wound tight. We get nervous. We want others to back us up. In all my years of playing fantasy football I’ve never seen anything good come from this question. In today’s day and age of social media you’ll always wind getting made fun of and/or put down. Trolls right? They are everywhere!

4. Get back in 5 guy

Ghosting 101…

We all know what this is. The blow off move. When another team owner is scared or doesn’t want to hurt your feelings, “I’ll be right baaaaaaack!” No you won’t!

5. Over thinking guy

Start? Sit? Add? Drop?

Hopefully by now you understand I’m not putting anybody down. Heck, I’ve done each and every one of these! Over thinking anything is just a by product of being thorough. Wanting to be absolutely right in every way. Which as you know is impossible! If it seems too good to be true it usually is. If it feels off and not right it usually is. With fantasy sports so prevalent on social media now a days a quick poll should do the trick. Or a quick message to your most trusted friend. Nothing good comes from over thinking. It creates unwanted stress and anxiety. The whole point of this is fun! Connecting with others. Building relationships with others. Make a decision and stick with it! Easier said then done I know but just try it this week! Lets see what happens.

6. Toilet tinkered guy

Where some of my best ideas come!

Some of my best work is done on the toilet! Not bring crass or rude, it’s just the truth! We can tinker with our seasonal lineups and our DFS lines and both are deadly! Everybody has a smart phone. Meaning we have everything at our finger tips at a moments notice! Games, banking apps, news apps, sports apps and our fantasy sports apps. Oh! What better time to check the waiver wire while we have a few moments alone on the toilet right? I set my seasonal lineup Sunday night or Monday morning for the following week. I check back Tuesday to get in my waiver claims. Wednesday morning I shuffle my roster around and leave it be! Sunday morning I check the news and injuries and give it one last look over before lock at 1p EST. My point, if we make our decisions early in the week they come from a place of confidence! A gut reaction that is normally right and spot on! When it comes to DFS enter enter all week then edit right before lock. Tinkering will be the death of your team. Unless that’s the fun?

7. Victory lap guy

This is a huge topic of discussion on social media. For those of you who don’t know let me briefly explain. A victory lap is just a told you so. A parade thrown for yourself after getting a certain projection or ranking correct. For example, “Ahhhh I told you Ke’Shawn Vaughn wasn’t a top-10 dynasty rookie RB!”. Vaughn has been in street clothes so far this season meaning the victory lappers have decided enough time has passed to solidify their stance on him. I’m being objective here! No opinion one way or another. Just shining light on the topic. Most recently victory lappers will now ask ahead of time. For example, “May I take my victory lap on Brandin Cooks now?” which is very thoughtful and we all appreciate you! In some cases the victory lapper will lay out their plans, “If Julian Edleman doesn’t catch 10 passes today I’m going to take my victory lap.” Another nice and thoughtful idea. I’ve also noticed their have been a few rules placed on victory lapping. To me, the most important one, the injury victory lap. Don’t victory lap when a player gets hurt. That’s in poor taste right? Overall I find the victory lap very perplexing.

8. Inappropriate group chat guy

We all know this guy. Most of the time we tell each other, “Oh don’t mind Steve he’s a miserable human being to begin with!” Steve is always sending awful meme’s or sexually explicit photos/videos in you leagues group chat. In certain cases that’s all he’s known for. We even stick up for him in advance of said meme’s and gif’s. “I want to warn you Chris, Steve is a little off and he says weird things sometimes.” It helps soften the blow. If you’re reading this and laughing hysterically saying, “dang that’s funny but we don’t have a guy like Steve in our group chat!” Then you’re Steve! You’re the inappropriate group chat guy! Never change Steve!

9. Neglects an entire position guy

This one is exactly what you think it is! Zero RB guy! Or zero WR guy. Let’s fool around during the draft and try to outsmart everybody else! In the end it never works out well. Let’s say over the years a team was orphaned in your league. New owner comes in and trades most of the talent away. In turn, they have Julio Jones, Davante Adams and Michael Thomas at WR. Pretty sweet right? Until you notice their starting RB’s are Frank Gore and LeSean McCoy. A top heavy team that never really competes due to neglect at one position. Again, it’s none of my business how you run your team. That’s the beauty of this! We’re our own teams general manager! Just bringing awareness.

10. Commish with no plan guy

Full disclosure, I was struggling with the last, “Guy” on this list. Ten is just a nice round number. When have you read a list that ended with nine. After the breaking news Cam Newton tested positive for COVID-19 and the New England at Kansas City was delayed a lot of fantasy managers were scrambling for replacements. Even more so after the postponement of Pittsburgh at Tennessee. Throughout the weekend I’ve seen a ton of advice and overall disappointment in leagues commissioners. Rightfully so if you’re now left holding you hat with an incomplete roster. We all knew this 2020 NFL season was going to be unlike any season we’ve experienced before. Certain votes were cast before the draft and some after. Any way you slice it we need contingency plans. Anything! To sit back and do nothing isn’t fair. It’s not right to us and all fantasy managers alike.

Is it over?

Hope you had fun! Is the idea now dead? Like Michael Myers at the end of Halloween? Who knows! You’ll just have to wait and see!

Thank you for reading! Any questions or comments?

2021 RB Prospect Watch

2021 RB Prospect Watch
7/23/20
David Reed https://twitter.com/Nfldraft_dwr

To continue our series after we looked at the QB’s for the upcoming 2021 Draft class, it’s time we move on to the running backs. Running back rankings are a bit more fluid than the QB’s rankings with there being a larger pool of them that translate to the next level better than QB’s do. Ill provide you with 10 RB’s that you should be excited to watch and could be players to look towards at the next level.

If you missed it, check out Davids 2021 QB Prospect Watch here! https://www.dfscheatsheet.com/2021-qb-prospect-watch/nfl/07/

Clemson RB Travis Etienne

Travis Etienne – Clemson: Speed and Burst are his best traits, but shows good balance and ability to catch the ball. His weakness is between the tackles. His vision and natural feel for space and cutback lanes isn’t as good, but with his speed can make up for it.

Alabama RB Najee Harris

Najee Harris – Alabama: This man is massive and hard to tackle, but fairly nimble with good speed and pass catching ability for his size. Is an upright runner who leaves his body open to punishment. He needs to improve on some juking/spin moves and not bull rushing everyone to extend his longevity but good luck tackling him.

Oklahoma State RB Chuba Hubbard

Chuba Hubbard – Oklahoma State: Patient runner who understands the blocking schemes and when to hit the holes but shows good acceleration to hit the opening. Great vision as a result of this. He is very inconsistent in pass protection and not the most natural pass catcher but not a liability either.

Georgia RB Zamir White

Zamir White – Georgia: Another Georgia product at the RB position. Good speed and balance. Shows ability to pass block. Shows good hands as well. Though he has good speed he doesn’t have breakaway speed and can be limited some in space with Elusiveness. He is also as a ACL injury on his resume back in 2018 as well, but is built to be a 3 down back at the next level.

Ohio State RB Master Teague

Master Teague – Ohio State: Physical skills jump off right away. Explosive short area burst and an aggressive running style. Shows some nice twitch in his hips to become more elusive in his game. Reported out of Tuscaloose football camp in 2017 he was running in the 4.3 so he shows some speed with his size and power. He had an Achilles injury in spring practice that could set him back some in 2020. This is the 2nd lower body injury he’s had. (2017 senior year in high school) He had limited time playing behind JK Dobbins and most of his time came in blow outs last year, can he replicate as a full time starter!

Ohio State RB Trey Sermon

Trey Sermon – Ohio State: You did not read this wrong, Ohio State as another draft eligible back that you should be looking at as well besides Teague. He transferred in from Oklahoma. He is another physical runner who can pound the ball between the tackles. He’s a great pass blocker and show good body control when running. Sermon lacks long speed but isn’t the most dynamic runner. He also suffered a knee injury in 2019.
• Kylin Hill – Mississippi State: Strong runner who’s built and hard to bring down. Quick to make a decision as a runner. Lacks long speed and can have a bad habit of running into his blockers. He needs to learn to stiff arm and not try to plow over everyone to help keep his body fresh long term.

Penn State RB Journey Brown

Journey Brown – Penn State: Explosive athlete that we could be looking at the 4.2/4.3 range for his 40 time. Former track star who has put on good size to be more than just a speed player. He as so much potential that has yet to be tapped into which is exciting with him. He needs to learn and press the line of scrimmage more. He needs to prove his worth as a pass catcher, hardly used in this phase of the game. Is it because he can’t catch or just hasn’t had the opportunity. A big 2020 season could have him sky rocket up the boards with his potential.

Minnesota RB Mohamed Ibrahim

Mohamed Ibrahim – Minnesota: Shows good suddenness in short spaces with a strong cut and go ability. Good balance and power. Sets the line well and waits for his blocks. Can run angry and run over people. He will not win any foot races and has dealt with some lower body injuries in his career so far.

Memphis RB Kenneth Gainwell

Kenneth Gainwell – Memphis: Memphis last few year has continued to produce some impressive RB’s with Pollard and Antonio Gibson last 2 years. Gainwell is a decisive ball carrier that is quick and slippery. He can exploded through holes and packs some punch with his smaller size to push the pile. He has good hands and has lined up in the slot as a WR. Is biggest weakness is pass protection, but has the mentality to put his body out there to try and block.

2020 Fantasy Buy & Sell All 32 Teams

Buy & Sell all 32 Teams
5/5/20
Chris Robin https://twitter.com/DetroitBeastie

I was burned out. I was tired. Not with the idea of writing and talking fantasy football. The thought of reading another rookie top ten exhausted me. The thought of talking top ten rookie running back rankings literally made me cringe.

Look, I mean no harm. I certainly mean no disrespect. That was just my attitude and my point of view. We have our limits. We also have our breaking points. Few days in the sun free from sports and fantasy sports does a body, mind and soul good!

Over the last month I’ve seen how great social media is. I’ve also seen how toxic it is! I’d like to think we all choose our own path. Take some time to rest and recharge. Free yourself from it all. I get it, we all have that fear of being forgotten or passed over. Trust me, if you’re serious about what you do and good at what you do you will not be forgotten. You will not be passed over.

Good content will always speak for itself!

I have a notebook filled with my thoughts and ideas. Every page is filled with rankings, projections, jokes, quotes and roster advice. Of everything written in my notebook my Fantasy Football Buy & Sell for each NFL team excited me the most!

2020 Fantasy Football Heaven

2020 Fantasy Heaven
4/17/20
Chris Robin https://twitter.com/DetroitBeastie

Fantasy football is many things! It’s fun! It’s joyful! It’s frustrating! It angers you! Yet we keep coming back. Why do you think that is? It’s challenging and it brings people together. That’s why!

We’ve all read rankings, projections, scouting reports, busts, sell, buy and breakout articles. What about fantasy heaven? Or fantasy hell? Have we ever taken an honest look at our teams and thought, “this guy is just hell to own!’. What about the times you’ve been head over heels in love with you team and said, “owning this guy is pure joy, its like heaven!”.

As we inch closer to the 2020 NFL Draft it’s time to take an honest look at our team and put together a solid draft plan! The idea of fantasy heaven and hell sounded good in my mind. It’s time to put pen to paper and explain myself.

When you picture heaven what do you see? The pearly gates? Fluffy clouds and angels? What do you see when I mention heavenly fantasy players? Non-stop production? First round pedigree? What ever you see is no doubt glorious! Pure bliss!

Patrick Mahomes QB-Kansas City Chiefs

Super Bowl Champion Kansas City Chiefs QB Patrick Mahomes

What I loved most about the idea of this article was how easy it was going to be! It should just write itself! So first guy on the list in Super Bowl Champion and MVP Patrick Mahomes! Kid is only 24 years old and already racking up the awards. There is absolutely no way, no chance he slows down! If you’re a Mahomes owner sit back and enjoy the ride! You’re in fantasy heaven!

Russell Wilson QB-Seattle Seahawks

Seattle Seahawks QB Russell Wilson

Five straight seasons of 3,500+ passing yards. Three straight seasons of 30+ TD passes. Three straight seasons of 300+ rushing yards. Russ keeps the INT’s down. Almost non-existent to be honest. He’s a gamer and does what anything and everything to win. He makes good decisions and keeps the points coming! Russell Wilson is fantasy heaven!

Lamar Jackson QB-Baltimore Ravens

Baltimore Ravens QB Lamar Jackson

Wowza! What a 2019 season for Lamar! His 3,127 passing yards and 36 passing TD’s were enough to get Baltimore in the playoffs and a ton of fantasy football championships! What about his 1,206 rushing yards?! 4,333 all purpose yards mixed with 43 total TD’s is a lot to love! What can we expect this season? Some of us aren’t able to contain that kind of excitement. Owning Lamar Jackson is like being able to sit in a hot sub on the sideline of you favorite football team. It’s angels signing, all you can eat nachos combined with bottomless beers! Fantasy football heaven!

Christian McCaffery RB-Carolina Panthers

Carolina Panthers RB Christian McCaffery

What I find absolutely shocking is the fact CMC is only 23 and his stock is rising! Don’t you find it absurd that last season was only the tip of the iceberg? Let put that into perspective shall we? 1,000+ rushing yards, 1,000+ receiving yards is just the start? Look, I know the hype around CMC is at an all time high but it’s it well warranted? An article like is this was made for a player like McCaffery! Owning CMC is as good as being in heaven! Fantasy football heaven!

Ezekiel Elliot RB-Dallas Cowboys

Dallas Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliot

Per usual, person opinions aside on this one. Zeke burst onto the scene in 2016 and hasn’t taken his foot off the gas since. He’s a stud back in any format made more popular given the franchise he plays for. 301 carries and 54 receptions in 2019 defiantly does it for me. I’ve heard some light talk about the dismemberment of Cowboys offensive line. Does that worry you? It doesn’t scare me at all. Stud RB’s handle their business one way or another. Draft with confidence and enjoy the fluffy clouds! You’re in fantasy heaven!

Saquon Barkley RB-New York Giants

New York Giants RB Saquon Barkley

Correct me if I’m wrong but I did I read content where people weren’t happy with Saquon’s 2019 season? Claiming it was a waste and/or a down year? I know he dealt with a nasty ankle sprain but in true thoroughbred fashion he ran for over 1,000 yards. 1,003 to be precise along with 438 receiving yards and 2 TD’s. If that’s a down year then dang! Sign me up! Much like CMC, Barkley is 23 years old and the Giants are the upswing. With a healthy draft, expect Saquon to open the season firing on all cylinders! Grab your harp, a seat next to an angel and watch the points fly! You’re in fantasy heaven!

Michael Thomas WR-New Orleans Saints

New Orleans Saints WR Michael Thomas

Unless you’ve been on Mars then you know what MT did in 2019. Hell, people on Mars probably know what MT did in 2019! An NFL record 149 receptions for 1,725 yards and 9 TD’s. Thomas is by far and away the best WR in football. He’s a pleasure to watch and a joy to own! What will do for an encore in 2020? I have a good idea! Don’t you? Sink into your heavenly soft clouds on this one! You’re in fantasy heaven!

Davante Adams WR-Green Bay Packers

Green Bay Packers WR Davante Adams

Adams spent the 2019 season in fantasy purgatory. He said he prayers, ate his Hulk Hogan vitamins and he’s ready to make it back into fantasy heaven in 2020.

Julio Jones WR-Atlanta Falcons

Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones

Six straight season of 1,300+ receiving yards and only four games missed in six straight seasons, Julio is a certified stud. Yes he’s had his usual allotment of nagging foot and ankle injuries but so what? This is professional football! We all made fun of him in 2017 for only scoring three TD’s but so what? Julio is your prototypical pro pass catcher. 6’3 220lb and footwork like a ballerina. Julio has stayed in the top 15 conversation come draft day since 2012. Drafting him is your ticket! Your ticket to fantasy heaven!

DeAndre Hopkins WR-Arizona Cardinals

Arizona Cardinals WR DeAndre Hopkins

If anyone were to de-throne MT as the WR1 it would be D-Hop. What I enjoy most about him is his silent hard working ethic. He’s not flashy, he’s not an ego-maniac and he goes about his business. In a shocking move by HOU, Bill O’Brien, Hopkins was traded to Arizona and will now catch passes from Kyler Murray. Is that an upgrade or down grade from Deshaun Watson? Does it even matter who’s throwing him the ball? That’s my choice. DeAndre is no doubt one of the premier wide receivers in football and should be drafted accordingly! Every time a bell rings a DeAndre Hopkins owner gets their wings! Fantasy heaven awaits!

Tyreek Hill WR-Kansas City Chiefs

Kansas City Chiefs Tyreek Hill

The self proclaimed cheetah missed out on a 1,000 yard receiving season in 2019 but that shouldn’t bother you heading into 2020. He was close but missed four games so that’s to blame for the shortage in production. He’s a stud most ways to slice it but as long as Pat Mahomes is his QB it’s all gravy! Hill has touchdown potential on any given play. Every time he touches the football he can take it to the house. How many players can you say that about? Not sure but I know it’s a very short list! That excitement alone is cause for a pool side chair at the heavenly oasis!

Chris Godwin WR-Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Chris Godwin

I hesitated adding Godwin on the list. Not because of anything he hasn’t done. All because of the longevity of what he hasn’t done. 2019 was his first 100+ receptions season. 2019 was his first 1,000+ receiving yards season. I’d be lying if I told you I don’t see many more season like this in his future. In turn why I shouldn’t I add him on the heavenly list? Draft him now. Trade for him now. The longer you can ride the wave to heaven the better!

Travis Kelce TE-Kansas City Chiefs

Kansas City Chiefs TE Travis Kelce

In fantasy football sometimes during our draft or during trades we need to look at tiers and the potential drop off at said position. That being said after Kelce and Kittle there is a drop off at tight-end. Kelce has had four straight 80+ reception seasons mixed with four straight 1,000+ reception yards. If you dig in a little deeper you’ll see Kelce has also averaged 12+ yards per receptions in every season he’s played in (2014-2019). There isn’t much more I can say about the guy. I know it, you know it and we all know it! Travis is the cream of the crop at tight-end!

George Kittle TE-San Francisco 49ers

San Francisco 49ers TE George Kittle

Kittle has been fantastic the last two seasons. Actually, so fantastic that he has catapulted himself into the top 3 of tight-end rankings. A power house on offense, his drive and fire are contagious. The creator of, “tight-end day” has a whole hell of a lot to do and 2020 could be the season. What are your thoughts on Kittle surpassing Kelce as the best tight-end in football this coming season? Say your prayers! Enjoy yourself in fantasy heaven!

2020 Fantasy Purgatory

2020 Fantasy Purgatory
4/17/20
Chris Robin https://twitter.com/DetroitBeastie

Fantasy football is many things! It’s fun! It’s joyful! It’s frustrating! It angers you! Yet we keep coming back. Why do you think that is? It’s challenging and it brings people together. That’s why!

We’ve all read rankings, projections, scouting reports, busts, sell, buy and breakout articles. What about fantasy heaven? Or fantasy hell? Have we ever taken an honest look at our teams and thought, “this guy is just hell to own!’. What about the times you’ve been head over heels in love with you team and said, “owning this guy is pure joy, its like heaven!”.

As we inch closer to the 2020 NFL Draft it’s time to take an honest look at our team and put together a solid draft plan! The idea of fantasy heaven and hell sounded good in my mind. It’s time to put pen to paper and explain myself.

What’s in the middle of heaven and hell? Purgatory right? Following suit with both ideas I find it imperative to discuss fantasy players that are in between. The large group I call, fantasy purgatory. Fantasy players who are stuck in this damned if you damned if you don’t situation.

Andy Dalton QB-Cincinnati Bengals

Cincinnati Bengals QB Andy Dalton

Can you trust him? Do you leave him on the waiver wire? Stream him as your QB? The Red Rifle has always been a competent NFL QB but never truly a QB1. Cincinnati has the #1 overall pick in the 2020 Draft. It’s a sure thing they select LSU QB Joe Burrow. That would destroy what little value Andy Dalton has. What if CIN releases him and he signs with New England? A lot of what-ifs! Andy is stuck in fantasy purgatory.

Derek Carr QB-Las Vegas Raiders

Las Vegas Raiders QB Derek Carr

Carr has shown flashes of being a stud QB. Overall I’d say he’s better left off my team. The more I think about it the entire Raiders organization has been left in flux. The only good statistic I can drop here is the fact LVR averaged 363 passing yards a game in 2019. Josh Jacobs has been a bright spot for them but what real weapons does Carr have at his disposal? Darren Waller? Hunter Renfrow? It’s very light in terms of offensive talent. Derek Carr is in fantasy purgatory.

Cam Newton QB-Free Agent

Free agent QB Cam Newton

Cam was released by Carolina on March 24 2020. Newton is now a free agent. Since his release there has been little to no interest by any NFL team to sign him. I believe his future as a starting NFL QB will be more clear after the actual NFL Draft. Does Miami bring him in after drafting there new franchise QB? He can start a few games while their young selection learns? Do the New England Patriots sign him in hopes of recapturing his 2015 MVP season? See what I mean? Cam’s value is wrapped up in all questions! No answers! Cam Newton is stuck in fantasy purgatory.

Carson Wentz QB-Philadelphia Eagles

Philadelphia Eagles QB Carson Wentz

When it comes to Carson there is this grey area and seemingly a dark cloud that follows him around. Maybe I’m way off base here but in my opinion, he’s still unproven. After the Eagles playoff run and Super Bowl win without him, I don’t think this cloud leaves until he does it on his own. His first few seasons have been a litany of injuries and bad luck. On the bright side Wentz did start all 16 games in 2019 and posted his record high in passing yards! I have no strong feeling about him one way another but until further notice, Carson Wentz is in fantasy purgatory.

Teddy Bridgewater QB-Carolina Panthers

New Carolina QB Teddy Bridgewater

Teddy was awesome and played quite well in the absence of Drew Brees last year. So much so he was able to spin it to Carolina for a sweet three year $63 million dollar deal. A lot was expected of Teddy after his 11-5 2015 season in Minnesota. After a horrific knee injury Teddy battled his way to a back up gig in New Orleans. The talent has always been there! Teddy is now sitting pretty and has all the support he needs. Given his track record can we trust Teddy? The verdict is still and until then Teddy Bridgewater is in fantasy purgatory.

James Connor RB-Pittsburgh Steelers

Pittsburgh Steelers RB James Connor

James had a fantastic 2018 season and Steelers fans forgot all about Le’Veon Bell! Since then it’s been a roller-coaster ride of ineffectiveness and injuries. Look, I really do admire Connors work ethic and tough nosed attitude but that doesn’t accumulate fantasy points. There are a lot of questions with Pittsburgh and there draft plan. Another guy stuck and wrapped up in what ifs. Connor is in fantasy purgatory.

Kerryon Johnson RB-Detroit Lions

Detroit Lions RB Kerryon Johnson

Kerryon was drafted by the Lions and carried stud RB pedigree. Since that day Johnson has played in 18 games. He’s also missed 14. The Detroit Lions have been starving for any resemblance of a running back for quite some time. They seem to be stuck in that, he’s good and we need him but also he can’t stay healthy we need to move on rationale. Until Kerryon can string together a fully healthy season he’s going to be stuck in fantasy purgatory.

Devonta Freeman RB-Free Agent

Free Agent RB Devonta Freeman

During a conversation with a friend this fantasy purgatory topic came up. Freeman’s name was used and Adam Sloshman had this to say about Freeman, “his whole career has been plagued by injuries and last season was defined only by receptions and the occasional touchdown (unpredictable stat for a RB)” He also went on to say, “Almost all of his games were sub-50 rushing yard performances.” Adam concluded by saying, “Combine that with the Falcons randomly letting other back vulture his goal line carries, he was the most frustration starting running back in the NFL to own!” Adam hit the nail on the head here! I couldn’t have explained it better myself! Devonta Freeman is in fantasy purgatory.

Derrius Guice RB-Washington Redskins

Washington Redskins RB Derrius Guice

I’m not going to spend a ton of time on Guice here. Kid hasn’t shown the ability to stay healthy. Two seasons in a row. Two major knee injuries. I wouldn’t own him if you paid me. To everybody else Guice is in fantasy purgatory.

Alshon Jeffery WR-Philadelphia Eagles

Philadelphia Eagles WR Alshon Jeffery

Where should I begin? In his eight professional football seasons Alshon has only played a full 16 games schedule twice. Don’t think I have time to list all the day-to-day tags and questionable designations. Jeffery is the definition of damned if you do damned if you don’t. The frustration issue here is the fact he can ball when he’s on the field. How many times has he been questionable and it’s too late to call it so you bench him and he goes for 100 yards and a TD? What about the opposite? You’ve paid attention all week to his status, get him in your lineup and he’s a last minute scratch? It’s maddening and I want no part of it! Alshon Jeffery is in fantasy purgatory!

T.Y. Hilton WR-Indianapolis Colts

Indianapolis Colts WR T.Y. Hilton

See above! Same story, different player.

A.J. Green WR-Cincinnati Bengals

Cincinnati Bengals WR A.J. Green

This one is a little bit of stretch but hear me out. Green is top 10 wide receiving talent. That’s not news. The problem here are all his foot and ankle injuries. With A.J. they just seem to always be nagging too! They carry on and on. Last season Green succumb to another ankle injury and missed the entire 2019 season. Moving on to 2020 what is the status of the teams QB situation? More than likely they draft Joe Burrow sure, Green has had 12+ months to recover from his ankle injury but what’s the big picture in 2020? No body know! It’s all what-ifs and hearsay! A.J. Green is in fantasy purgatory!

DeSean Jackson WR-Philadelphia Eagles

Philadelphia Eagles WR DeSean Jackson

He is unbelievable! One week he puts up 160 yards and 2 TD’s then misses multiple games with a nagging core muscle injury. Or a tender back. What about knee and ankle discomfort? At this stage in his career it’s safe to say his best fantasy days are behind him. What keeps us hanging on are those good days! I’m asking you now to leave him on the waiver wire. If you want the headache then have at it! DeSean is in fantasy purgatory!

Jared Cook TE-New Orleans Saints

New Orleans Saints TE Jared Cook

By a show of hands how many of you believe Cook can repeat what he did last season in 2020? I’m not one of them! Emmanuel Sanders is now a Saint. Taysom Hill was given a one year $4.7 million tender tag. Brees has always been a fantastic QB. He’s great at spreading the football around. He’s just not that stud TE1 that he’s being drafted as. Cook is in fantasy purgatory.

Evan Engram TE-New York Giants

New York Giants TE Evan Engram

It’s been tough sledding for Engram in his three professional football seasons. Littered with injuries and questionable tags. Another kid with phenomenal potential, he will remain in fantasy purgatory until he can put it all together!

O.J. Howard TE-Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Tampa Bay Buccaneers TE OJ Howard

What an awfully frustrating 2019 season it was for Howard! At this point in the article I hope you’ve noticed a trend! Tom Brady is the TB QB and fantasy football players are freaking out, the good kind! I have to say I’m behind the hype! That’s still not enough to get take him out of fantasy purgatory!

#11
Drew Brees New Orleans Saints

New Orleans Saints QB Drew Brees

11 Games 2,979 yards 27 TDs 4 INTs & 116.3 QBR
Did father time finally catch up with Brees last year or did the thumb injury bother with more than we thought?

#12
Daniel Jones New York Giants

New York Giants QB Daniel Jones

13 Games 3,027 yards 24 TDs 12 INTs & 87.7 QBR
Daniel had an outstanding rookie year after taking over for the Legend killer Eli Manning in week 2. A full season with Barkley, Engram, Shepard, and Slayton, Jones should be in a for a great sophomore season.

#13
Matthew Stafford Detroit Lions

Detroit Lions QB Matthew Stafford

8 Games 2,499 yards 19 TDs 5 INTs & 106 QBR

#14
Tom Brady Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Tom Brady

#15
Sam Darnold New York Jets

New York Jets QB Sam Darnold

13 Games 3,024 yards 19 TDs 13 INTs & 84.3 QBR
The jets have done a decent job this off-season getting Darnold some protection on the offensive line. However, outside of Le’Veon Bell, Jamison Crowder, and freshly signed Breshad Perriman the cupboard is pretty empty. Look for New York to add a WR or two in next weeks NFL draft.

#16
Kirk Cousins Minnesota Vikings

Minnesota Vikings QB Kirk Cousins

15 Games 3,603 yards 26 TDs 6 INTs and 107.4 QBR

Pittsburgh Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger

2 games Injured

#18
Baker Mayfield Cleveland Browns

Cleveland Browns QB Baker Mayfield

16 Games 3,827 yards 22 TDs 21 INTs 78.8 QBR.
2019 was a year of ups and downs for quite a few players including Baker. The Browns are now looking at a new offense with another new HC (shocker) Kevin Stefanski. With that said the Browns are loaded on offense with Chubb, Hunt, Landry, Hooper, Beckham, and Njoku. So if they can protect Mayfield just a little, lookout.

#19
Ryan Tannehill Tennessee Titans

Tennessee Titans QB Ryan Tannehill

12 Games 2,742 Yards 22 TDs 6 INTs 117.5 QBR

#20

#6
Josh Allen Buffalo Bills

Buffalo Bills QB Josh Allen

16 Games 3,089 yards 20 TDs 9 INTs 85.3 QBR & 510 rushing yards with 9 TDs
Entering into season two for Allen, he was expected and asked to grow and get better as a quarterback; he didn’t disappoint.

Buy! Buy! Buy! (Part 2)

Buy! Buy! Buy! (Part 2)
4/15/20
Chris Robin https://twitter.com/DetroitBeastie

Buy! Buy! Buy! Was very successful! Due to the success it warranted a sequel!

So much like the original Buy! Buy! Buy! article I wanted to get in on a list of players I’m buying without any hesitation! The 2020 NFL Draft class is loaded with offensive talent. We already know this. What about players already in the league that we should buy? This list also goes well with dynasty, keeper and re-draft leagues! Missed Buy! Buy! Buy!? Check it out here! https://www.dfscheatsheet.com/buy-buy-buy/nfl/04/

If you’re in any dynasty leagues there is no off-season! Lets get to it! Here is an in-depth list of players I’m buying in 2020! Keep in mind at this point I’m going to be mentioning ADP/value from the mock drafts I’ve been apart of.

QUARTERBACKS

Sam Darnold QB-New York Jets

New York Jets QB Sam Darnold

Do you remember this kids first ever pass in the NFL? Pick 6 on Monday Night Football in Detroit. He can only improve from that. All kidding aside Sam has legit talent! Last season Darnold had little to no help. As a life long Detroit Lions fan I get it. The Jets offensive line allowed 52 sacks. Le’Veon Bell only averaged 3.2 yards per carry and missed seven games due to injury. Looking ahead to 2020 Robby Anderson has left for Carolina but they did sign FA WR Breshard Perriman. The Jets also have the 11th overall selection in the 2020 draft. As I’ve said before I don’t have a crystal ball but I think it’s safe to say the Jets go stud WR at 11 with a complement of offensive lineman selections. Help is on the way Sam and I think it’s time buy into him as your QB! In recent mock drafts Darnold is sitting around a QB15 ADP. Buy! Buy! Buy!

Drew Lock QB-Denver Broncos

Denver Broncos QB Drew Lock

I’ll say it straight out, Lock’s ADP is through the rook right now. Just a classic class of all of us early mock drafters mixed with the residuals of what Drew did late last season. Kid has some real potential! Now mix in the likes of Melvin Gordon III and the massive hype train that is Courtland Sutton and emergence of tight-end Noah Fant I can see why people are very high on him. Let pump the breaks though in terms of his ADP. I truly do believe Lock is a buy but within reason. I assume most of you have played fantasy football for quite some time so I don’t need to explain value and ADP. All value goes out the window if he’s drafted too high. Be careful, be mindful and keep a look out for Drew Lock during you 2020 mocks. That way you’ll be able gauge value come draft day. Buy! Buy! Buy!

RUNNING BACKS

Justice Hill RB-Baltimore Ravens

Baltimore Ravens RB Justice Hill

I thought my opinion of Baltimore offensive regression wasn’t that well taken. As we continue closer to closer to draft day I’ve seen a lot of regression talk. Mark Ingram will be 31 years old during the 2020 season. Once again I’m planning ahead. Hill is my pick here. Before you rake me over the coals I know Justice only had 66 carries for 295 yards and 2 TD’s. Hill is fast and possess a skill set unlike the other backs on the Ravens roster. He has the wheels and pedigree to really shine in this offense given the chance. I also believe this is our chance to grab Hill at such a cheap price. God forbid Mark Ingram goes down with an injury Hill’s value would skyrocket! In my draft mocks so far Hill has been drafted as a RB38. I’m jumping all over him! Buy! Buy! Buy!

Jordan Howard RB-Miami Dolphins

Miami Dolphins RB Jordan Howard

The Dolphins signed Howard to a two year $10 million dollar contract. It immediately addresses their hole at running back. What does this mean for his fantasy value? Over the years fantasy players haven’t paid much attention to Howard. He’s now on his third team in five years. Doing the RB shuffle. Miami has the 5th overall selection in the 2020 Draft. The only reason I mention this is due to the tremendous implications it will have on Howards value. By all reports Miami is looking to grab a QB early. That would be good news for us Howard sympathizers. Without a doubt Miami will draft a running back somewhere in the 2020 Draft. Does this bury Jordan on the depth chart? Not a chance! His new $10 million dollar contract assures us of this. Another preemptive strike buy Howard now! Buy! Buy! Buy!

WIDE RECEIVER

Preston Williams WR-Miami Dolphins

Miami Dolphins WR Preston Williams

Preston is getting a ton of love in fantasy circles right now! Most fantasy players are taking it to the extreme too! Sending out tweets and posts going all in for their love of him! In his eight appearances in 2019 Preston put up five double-digit PPR performances and averaged 7.5 targets a game. He also averaged 10 yards per reception in all but one game. Did you also know he was the Dolphins leading receiver until he was injured. Insert Davante Parker here! What I said about the Dolphins draft plans above still hold true here for Preston. When MIA drafts a QB 5th overall all their players should see a boost in value. When it comes to Williams I also firmly believe he retains a role and will blow away his current ADP. The time to buy Preston is now. He won’t cost you much seeing how he’s being drafted as a WR53 its an easy add! Buy! Buy! Buy!

J.J. Arcega-Whiteside WR-Philadelphia Eagles

Philadelphia Eagles WR J.J. Arcega-Whiteside

This one is quick and easy! 2020 is a make or break season for JJ. More specifically, the Eagles GM Howie Roseman said, “needs to take a huge jump” this season. I know a lot of Eagles fans so I’m going to tread lightly here. I wouldn’t normally mention a no-name bum wide receiver but I honestly do this Arcega-Whiteside takes the next step. It’s an odd circumstance for two reason. You can draft him for next to nothing now or even add him early into the 2020 season. The choice is yours. Just know once this picks up more steam you’ll be dealing with those fantasy players who overvalue their players. Buy! Buy! Buy!

Mercole Hardman WR-Kansas City

Kansas City Chiefs WR Mercole Hardman

I’ve always been open and honest with you. So why would I stop now? I have no feeling toward Hardman one way or another. So why am I bringing him up? Well personal opinions and/or feelings play a big role in fantasy sports. Back to the topic at hand, Mercole Hardman! He didn’t have a special rookie season. He actually only had 41 targets last season and played in less than 50% of the offensive snaps. Not a stellar way to tell you to buy him right? Well, Hardman has the quickness and speed to really get loose. Sammy Watkins restructured his contract to remain in KC. Tyreek Hill is an absolute stud WR. They’ve also resigned Demarcus Robinson . So again, it seems the odds aren’t in his favor. If you look at his current ADP, WR65+, he’s easily one of the biggest buys so far this off-season. Look for Hardman to absolutely destroy his ADP. Sell! Sell! Sell!

Parris Campbell WR-Indianapolis Colts

Indianapolis Colts WR Parris Campbell

Few things at play here with Parris. Few things at play with the entire Colts offense. Indianapolis HC Frank Reich has high expectations for both Campbell and Pascal. What we need to be mindful of is what the Colts do in the draft and throughout free agency. The Colts look ready to make more moves to add to their offense. If they add another high-end WR then Parris and Pascal take huge hits. As it stands now Phil Rivers in their QB and we all know he’s aggressive. Let’s say the Colts go into the 2020 season as is. I would love to add Campbell. If T.Y. can stay healthy with Doyle at tight-end there is real potential. Just know there are a lot of moving parts! Just another preemptive move! It’s always great to get ahead of things! Buy! Buy! Buy!

Michael Gallup WR-Dallas Cowboys

Dallas Cowboys WR Michael Gallup

2020 will be Gallup’s third season as pro! 2019 was quite good and I’m hoping he takes the next step this season! In 2019 Gallup was 8th in receptions of 20+ yards (18) and went over 100 receiving yards four times. What I enjoyed the most was his growth during the season. Gallup has started to come into his own. He really came on strong from weeks 10-17! Catching 48 passes from a possible 57 targets. Gallup also played in 86% of the Cowboys offensive snaps during that same time frame. I’m of the belief Gallup does take that next step in 2020. Only problem is he’s not that big of secret anymore. I think the time to buy is now. Slightly elevated but as low as his price is going to be! Buy! Buy! Buy!

TIGHT-END

Dawson Knox TE-Buffalo Bills

Buffalo Bills TE Dawson Knox

The initial issue here is the addition of Stefon Diggs. I’m a glass half full kind of guy. An eternal optimist if you will. With Diggs now being in Buffalo they will be able to stretch the field more right? Maybe a tad less targets but this is good for Knox! Although Know did get much action his rookie year, 3.3 targets a game, the Bills are invested in him and his development. I’ve seen a low to moderate interest in Knox. I’m buying all the shares I can! If you miss out on the first tier of TE’s (Kelce, Kittle, Waller, Andrews) then wait it out! If you’re able to draft or acquire Knox late in a draft then that only extends his value! Buy! Buy! Buy!

T.J. Hockenson TE-Detroit Lions

Detroit Lions TE T.J. Hockenson

If I have to read another article or statement about how stud TE’s take a few seasons to develop I’m going to freak out! That being said, I do agree! Ha! Any way to slice it I believe TJ is destined for super stardom at the tight-end position. He flashed moments in 2019 but ultimately succumb to injuries and poor quarterback play. Look for Hock to take the next step in 2020. Matthew Stafford is fully healthy and will assume his role as a fixture on the Lions roster. If you missed it Sell! Sell! Sell! Part 1 did mention Stafford as a buy. I’m very much on board with buying TJ Hock too! Buy! Buy! Buy!

Noah Fant TE-Denver Broncos

Denver Broncos TE Noah Fant

I’ll be right up front and honest here. Why all the buzz about Fant? I will do my best to explain what I think is going on and how well taken all the positive reports about Noah are. His 2019 was very inconsistent. It was also his rookie season. To me, Fant has a very high ceiling and I’d be happy to own him. The Denver Broncos added Melvin Gordon III and Philip Lindsay is still there. Great running back play is huge to the development of TE’s. As Drew Lock and Fant grow and learn together the results could be beautiful! Nothing fancy here just get in on the ground floor here. Fant has the upside of a very well rounded TE2. At his current ADP that’s a steal!

Just wanted to mention how important ADP is when drafting these guy. Please mock as much as you can and if need be take notes and be aware of where these players are being drafted!
