  1. Fulgham fits this space too, though he already is squarely on the fantasy radar, and had been previously discussed a bit following his Week 5 showing. Also skeptical about his value, long term, with Goedert, Jackson and Jeffery returning in short order. Ward also won't simply go away, and dealt with Haden last week if I'm not mistaken (contributing towards Fulgham's increased opportunity). Touted Mattison based on the belief that he could Week 6 winner. Aware he, and Gaskin, are more mainstream, having had pre-existing helium, however....I dunno...just felt like writing them up A few more intriguing names: Jacoby Brissett, Devin Duvernay, Irv Smith (previously mentioned), Jalen Guyton (barring Allen injury status), Jon Brown (Jax PK of the week) and the Dolphins DST (streaming option vs NYJ)
  2. Deep League Dives Identifying Under The Radar Talent Alex Mattison: He is more mainstream than who I normally post, however he should easily top this weeks waiver wish list (Claypool is too obvious). Cook's injured groin, coupled with Minnesotas upcoming bye in Week 7, adds speculation that the incumbent will sit. If so, Mattison will again be the bell-cow in week 6, drawing a hapless Falcons defense that ranks 31st against the run Expect fantasy fire works. Gerald Everett: Presumed starting tight end Tyler Higbee ran a season low 16 routes last week, while Everett saw more opportunity and capitalized, with a season best and team high 90 yards. While the Niners have yielded the 3rd fewest points to the tight end position, Gesicki did just recently gash them for 91 yards, making Everett a decent bye-week filler/dart throw this week Keelan Cole: DJ Chark's ankle injury opens up more field time for Cole, who has found the end zone three of five weeks. Rumored to have built a strong rapport with Minshew throughout camp, the veteran has yet to drop a pass, while converting 29 targets into 21 grabs, despite last weeks inefficient showing. The Lions pass defense doesn't present much resistance, while an even juicier matchup looms the following week against the Chargers should the Jags opt to rest Chark through the bye. Taking over KR duties adds a small boost to leagues that reward special teams production. Myles Gaskin: Those with Gaskin shares, myself included, should be elated to see touchdown vulture Jordan Howard's deactivation, coupled with MG converting a goal-line opportunity this past Sunday. The prospect of the Phins tabling his red-zone removal bodes well for his future fantasy prospects, with a tantalizing matchup with the hapless Jets on deck. Kalif Raymond: Corey Davis and Adam Humphries are both expected to be sidelined due to COVID, which opens up opportunity for the journeyman speedster to operate as the WR2 this evening. Raymond flashed during week 3, converting three targets into 118 yards. A contributor on special teams, both on punts and kick return, Raymond is the boom or bust play that could pay dividends if he gets loose downfield. DeMarcus Robinson: Early indicators suggest that Sammy Watkins balky hamstring will cost him at least a few weeks. Hardman, and to a lesser extent Pringle, will see an uptick in targets out of the slot, however the majority of Sammys snaps on the outside will be going to Robinson. The Bills secondary has been generous to opposing wideouts, ranking 27th against the pass, and allowing the 10th most fantasy points to receivers, while Robinson has previously flashed (2019) when given opportunity. Should Tre White be cleared next week, he will likely blanket Tyreek Hill, opening up the field to the Chiefs secondary options. Breshad Perriman: I know, I know....he's a Jet.....however Perriman is apparently close to returning, and will immediately be reinserted back into the starting lineup of a NY team whose game script often involves playing from a deficit, which lends to more pass catching opportunities. Having been talked up by Sam Darnold during camp, the veteran deep threat could boost "Gang Greens" inept passing game. Crowder has a history of hamstring injuries, which would boost Perriman's value further, should they resurface. Lamar Miller: Having recently been signed to the Bears practice squad, Miller is worth monitoring while David Montgomery continues to plod his way to 3.9 yards per tote, including < 3 YPC over the most recent two contests. Miller has lead-back experience, while the only other viable tailbacks in tow for Chicago are unproven Ryan Hall and return specialist/gadget wideout Cordarelle Patterson, both of whom have produced next to nothing on the ground. That the Bears have one of the softest fantasy playoff schedules against the run, so whomever ultimately emerges from this backfield should be a viable asset down the stretch. Graham Gano: The former Panther has returned to the NFL by storm, converting on 13 of 14 opportunities, including 4 this past Sunday, which included three from 50 yards out. His only miss thus far should be forgiven, as it came on a 57 yard attempt in Chicago. The Giants offense continues to sputter, especially on the opponents side of the field which should lend itself to plenty of future opportunities, many of which will be in the long range variety. Could ultimately provide PK1 value! Lamical Perine: Two Jets in one post...yikes! Disgruntled Lev Bell is at odds Gase, Frank Gore is fast approaching 40, and the Jets are going nowhere fast. Why not throw a speculative dart at the '20 4th rounder??? Might as well see what some of the youngsters in tow could do in a lost season at some point.
  3. 1) Singletary: Still the starting tailback; Titans rank 29th against the run 2)Gallup: G-Men corners are susceptible to big-plays. Gallup is the deep threat. Mediocre defenses on both sides suggest points a plenty. Like Gallup for a score! 3)Johnson: Browns remain committed to running the ball. Colts present a tough matchup, however his likely 10 touches presents more defined opportunity than that of the others on your list Thanks for the feedback on mine. Hope this helps!
  4. Leave him on the wire. His target conversion is pretty awful this year, resulting in the Bengals shying away from making him a focal point. As the youth movement continues, don't be surprised to see continued regression, providing some younger talents with more opportunities.
  5. To provide some context (my team is in my sig), making the Murray deal would have left me with Preston Williams as my WR1, w/o the second deal........So moving Chubb, while selling low, seemed worthwhile with his return slated for no earlier than Week 8. Starting Lineup consists of: QB RB WR WR WR WR/RB WR/TE PK DST Below are my pre and post trade roster PRE-TRADE QB: Cousins/Kyle Allen RB: Chubb/D Johnson/Du Johnson/M Gaskin/M Breida WR: Tyler Boyd, Preston Williams, Ke Cole, Ra Cobb, K Raymond TE: Hu Henry & Logan Thomas PK: Butker DST: Pitt POST-TRADE QB: Ky Murray & Kyle Allen RB: David Johnson/Duke Johnson/Myles Gaskin/Matt Breida WR: Jarvis Landry, Sterling Shepard, Preston Williams, Keelan Cole, Randall Cobb, Kalif Raymond TE: Hunter Henry & Logan Thomas PK: Harrison Butker & Josh Lambo DST: Pittsburgh
  6. Interested to see how the majority feels as though I did here.......Felt the need to shake things up a bit! 20 Team .5 PPR 2-2 Record 2 trades Trade 1 Got: Kyler Murray and Josh Lambo (needed a bye week kicker for Butkers Wk 10 Bye; no kickers on FA) Gave: Kirk Cousins and Tyler Boyd Trade 2 Got: Jarvis Landry & Sterling Shepard Gave: Nick Chubb
  7. Deep League Dives Under The Radar Value Marcos Mariota, QB LV: Raider nation is clamoring for a change following Carr's most recent second half, and league leading (5th), fumble on the season. Mariota adds mobility behind the line of scrimmage, which the stationary Carr does not. Raiders made M-squared the highest paid backup for a reason. Get ahead of this potential changing of the guard! Cameron Brate, TE TB: OJ Howard injury opens up targets and field time for the Bucs stalwart. Arians recently eluded to Gronk's future snap count not likely to change, not to mention he enters Thursday tilt with a questionable designation, which by default suggests that Brate will immediately step into a prominent role in this offense. With their top four receivers hobbled, Cam, who has always been a redzone vulture, may be the man come Thursday night. Tyler Johnson, WR TB: Piggybacking on the above news, Johnson is the healthiest receiver option in tow for the "Pewter Pirates". Hobbled for much of camp, the former Golden Gopher has been off the fantasy radar, however continues drawing rave reviews from teammates and coaches alike. Arians recently shared that Johnson is "ready" and that the game was not too big for him in his first NFL action, as he is poised for a greater role with injuries to the Tampa pass catchers piling up. Auden Tate, WR Cin AJ Green continues to disappoint, despite no shortage of opportunities, while Tate continues to wait on the sidelines. A training camp MVP, the former Seminole is reportedly frustrated with his minimal offensive role and potentially seeking a trade. The squeaky wheel often gets the grease, so perhaps Tate gets more action, whether with the Bengals or via relocation. Cam Akers RB, LAR: Not truly a deep sleeper, however Akers is worth mentioning, as he will be on the field following a two game injury hiatus. Neither Malcom Brown, nor Darrell Henderson has separated themselves from the backfield pack, leaving the window open for the second rounder to return to a prominent offensive role against a Redskins defense that ranks 20th against the rush. Tua Tagovailoa QB, Mia: This week, we very well might witness the finale of the "Fitzmagic Show".....Get in before the Tua boom begins. Elliot Fry, PK Atl: Sunday are now Fry-days???? EF may once more serve as the Atlanta kicker this weekend against Carolina. The last time these teams met, Koo posted a season best 4 field goals and 4 extra points in a week 14 victory (2019). Atlanta will provide scoring opportunities galore and hopefully Fry can capitalize on them. Arizona Cardinals DST: They play the hapless Jets, sans Darnold..Need I say more? Even with a returning Bell and Perriman a solid showing for Arizona is likely in the "Cards" Deep Dives (Currently On The Radar): Kyle Allen, Darren Fells, CJ Beathard, Gus Edwards, Isaiah Ford, Justin Jackson & D'Ernest Johnson
  8. Love the "Dreck" comment...Haven't heard that term since I was little! Mom used to throw that around constantly! My rebuttal is that there is value within those secondary pieces. Freeman was involved in the passing game, and should see more totes as he assimilates to the NYG offense. Gallman and Lewis won't cut into much early down work, and his receiving chops could result in his being on the field for three downs. Upcoming schedule against a 28th ranked Dallas and 20th Ranked Redskins rush defense could translate into decent fantasy production. Davis, albeit sans AJ Brown, has posted solid totals. Upcoming matchup against the Bills secondary, which is that defenses achilles heal, ranking 27th against the pass, bodes well. Not sure if he is starter worthy in this particular format, however wouldn't be surprised to see a decent receiving game on tap, even with Brown returning this Sunday. 1/4 of the way through the season, records and bye weeks lend themselves to impulsive decision making as well. A struggling team, could accelerate an Ekeler deal, with the multi-week absence on the horizon. They may maximize a greater return elsewhere, however keep in mind that the suggested add-on is simply adding Corey Davis and Devonta Freeman for Ekeler, which in the context of current landscape isn't terribly far off, considering the original offer (I meant to include Dobbins in my prior post as well; Freeman, Dobbins, Thomas, MVS and Davis...whoops)
  9. Retract my last statement, based on the Kittle acquisition. Would your counterpart be willing to negotiate a deal, using all previously mentioned names? Something along this line: You get: Miles Sanders, Austin Ekeler, Allen Robinson and DJ Chark Opposing Team gets: Michael Thomas, MVS, Devonta Freeman and Corey Davis You give up the best piece theoretically in Thomas, but secure the much needed depth. Much prefer Ekeler to Freeman, and the multi-week injury presents a nice buying opportunity. How many teams are you talking here btw? The Kittle/Lamar deal was a steal imo. Good For You!
  10. Solid value, however looking at the sum of your team (in your sig)....Would focus on securing a tight end upgrade, as opposed Ekeler or Allen Robinson, if possible in this deal...If not, perhaps negotiate a secondary trade to where your giving Gesicki and A-Rob for a lesser wideout and a top quality tight end prior to proceeding with Trade 1. Its fair value regardless, however having a higher floor tight end, in addition to securing your ground game would seemingly be top priority based on roster construction. Hope this helps!
  11. Morning, Giants DST has done well against opposing tight ends, while allowing the 9th most points to fantasy wideouts. J Peppers is still questionable. Big plays have perpetually plagued the Giants corners, and Gallup happens to be Dallas' big play option. I'm chasing the ceiling here given the option....and going with Gallup
  12. If your rostering Aaron Jones I would reserve dropping Williams, however if not, then seems perfectly logical with Mixon highly questionable. Mo Cox is a drop candidate with Burton activated from IR....Not sure any of the Colts tight ends will generate enough consistent snap counts/production, barring injury, to justify being rostered. Sanders is another drop option, unless you're starting him this week. He becomes no greater than the 4th option in the pass game with a healthy Thomas, Kamara and Cook (and Smith) soaking up targets. Thomas and Cook should soon return, making Sanders future value tepid at best.
  13. Fuller....Minnesota secondary has been atrocious, ranking 30th against the pass. Belichek focus last week as removing Waller from the game script, which benefited Renfrows production. Expect more Waller this week and subsequently less Hunter. Fuller was taken off the injury report as of yesterday, and appears good to go. He'd be my play w/o blinking.
  14. Seeking avid football enthusiasts, interested in future participation in a longstanding (Year 16) competitive 20 Team re-draft. No vacancies at present, however constructing a wait-list of would-be suitors, who share similar interests and league preferences, for when future opportunity presents.

Look forward to speaking, networking and ultimately competing against fellow passionate deep divers!
  15. Brown = AJ Brown?? Your streaming of quarterbacks is a sound strategy, but there is something to be said with not having to roll the weekly dice, which Rodgers would afford you. Your RB depth offers opportunity to make this deal, however if you could sub out Brown for Metcalf, (assuming its AJ), that might be a better bet as his deep bruise figures to keep him sidelined. Would your counterpart take Ingram instead of Robinson, as I would like the deal even more at that point???? Love Metcalf this year. Pedestrian Seahawks defense, coupled with Wilson's MVP caliber play suggests that his arrow will continue to point straight up, especially with an even more pass happy script on tap with Carson sidelined. What's the other roster look like. Wondering if you can squeeze in another slight upgrade to the initial offer, such as adding Graham for a better TE or Parker for an upgraded WR. If so, perhaps wanna look to expand a bit, and gain an upgrade on the back end. Hope this helps!
