Week 15 Fantasy Football Circle Of Trust

Browns QB Baker Mayfield

Cardinals have allowed a league-high 32 Passing TD and a league-worst 113.9 opponents passer rating. I anticipate a shootout in the desert. 

Broncos RB Phillip Lindsay

PPR Flex play vs. a Chiefs defense that is generous to opposing running backs.

Titans WR AJ Brown

Averaging 9.4 Yards after the catch. Brown has emerged as a big play threat and that should continue vs. the Texans. Keep his name in mind when preparing for drafts next season.  

Panthers TE Ian Thomas

The Seahawks defense has allowed the 2nd most fantasy points to opposing Tight Ends.

49ers K Robbie Gould

Should be busy at home vs. the Falcons. 

Seahawks Defense

Since the bye week, Panthers QB Kyle Allen has turned the ball over in 6 of his last 7 games.  

IDP

Jaguars MLB Donald Payne

29 total tackles in last 2 games since taking over for Myles Jack. 

Week 8 Fantasy Basketball Circle Of Trust

Bulls PG Kris Dunn


The ever changing Boylan rotation has now led to Dunn seeing 29 or more minutes in 4 of 5 games. This could be to add a defensive presence to the floor, but also build up trade value. Dunn can help fantasy players looking to improve in steals. The Bulls play 4 games this week.

Wizards PG Ish Smith

3 straight games of scoring in double figures. 6.7 APG in those comtests as well. With Isaiah Thomas recovering from injury, Smith should be in lineups. Wizards play just 2 games this week.

Rockets SG Ben McLemore

Former lottery pick has turned into a solid rotational piece in Mike D’Antoni’s offense. McLemore has scored in double figures in 4 consecutive games. Has played 20 or more minutes in 10 of 12 contests. Owners looking for 3 point shooting may want to stream McLemore in a 4-game week.

Week 14 Fantasy Football Circle Of Trust

Titans QB Ryan Tannehill

Has made himself relevant with 12 TD and 4 INT in 7 starts this season.  Raiders have given up 27 passing TD.

Packers RB Jamaal Williams

Has 5 receiving touchdowns this season.  Redskins gives up 131.6 yards-per-game on the ground. Williams is a safe PPR Flex play. 

Dolphins WR Devante Parker

Has finally arrived this season with 5 or more catches in 6 of his last 7 games.  Big game potential vs. the Jets.   

Ravens TE Mark Andrews 

Bills have allowed the fewest points to opposing Tight End. My best advice for the playoffs is don’t get cute, dance with who brought you. If you own Andrews, play him. 

Texans K Ka’imi Fairbairn

Texans will move the ball against the Broncos and Fairbairn should be busy. 

Texans Defense

Drew Lock made some plays in his debut, but I see him forcing throws and turning the ball over. 

IDP 

Eagles MLB Nigel Bradham

13 total tackles in the last 2 games.  Giants with rushing attack and short passing game present high tackle opportunities. 

Week 13 Fantasy Football Circle Of Trust

Jets QB Sam Darnold

8 passing TD and 2 rushing TD in last 4 games.  Bengals allow a 104.3 Opponents passer rating and have the 2nd fewest Sacks at just 16.  

Colts RB Jonathan Williams

Making the most of his opportunity with back-to-back 100 yards games.  Titans have allowed 100 total yards and a TD in last 3 games. Should be universally owned at this point of the season. 

Jaguars WR Dede Westbrook

6 or more targets in 8 contests this season. Dede has only 1 TD this season, but has a solid chance to score vs. the Bucs.

Colts TE Jack Doyle

With Eric Ebron out and Jacoby Brissett playing risk averse, Doyle should set a season-high in catches. 

Jaguars K Josh Lambo

Bucs have allowed a league most 25 field goals made this season. 

Eagles Defense

Road matchup with the Ryan Fitzpatrick led Dolphins. 

IDP

Jets LB Neville Hewitt

Making plays in the middle of Jets defense with CJ Mosley out.  5 or more total tackles in 6 of 7 games played this season.

Week 6 Fantasy Basketball Circle Of Trust

Wizards PF Davis Bertans

Owners looking for shooting from downtown need to look no further than Bertans. With 3.3 made per game from beyond the arc Bertans can help this week with a 4-game slate.

Bucks SG Donte Divincenzo

Has made the most of his opportunity with Khris Middleton on the shelf. His scoring and thievery will help owners in a 4-game week.

Warriors PG Ky Bowman

Double digit scoring in 3 of his last 4 games. All the injuries to the Warriors are creating opportunities for young players. Deep league players may want to use Bowman with his 4-game week.

Week 12 Fantasy Football Circle Of Trust

Raiders QB Derek Carr

Completing 72.3% of his passes and has a passer rating of 105.2.  Surprisingly hasn’t thrown for 300 yards yet this season. I believe that changes vs. the Jets. 

Browns RB Kareem Hunt

13 catches combined in 2 contests.  Hunt is worth a flex play vs. the Dolphins.

Steelers WR James Washington

Road tilt vs. the winless Bengals. JuJu Smith-Schuster and Dionte Johnson are both in the league’s concussion protocol.  

Seahawks TE Jacob Hollister

3 TD combined in his last 2 games.  Hollister was traded from the Patriots to the Seahawks this summer, released, then signed to the practice squad.  

Jets TE Ryan Griffin

Coming off teams 1st 100 yard performance by a Tight End since Dustin Keller in 2011.  Griffin has 5 or more targets 2 of the last 3 games.

Falcons K Young Hoe Koo

Making the most of his opportunity in Atlanta.  Bucs give up points in bunches.  

Lions Defense

Road matchup with the Dwayne Haskins led Redskins.  Haskins holds onto the ball way too long, stares down receivers, and can’t get thru his progressions. It’s going to get worse before it gets better in DC.

IDP 

Rams SS Taylor Rapp

6 or more total tackles in his last 5 contests as a starter. Ravens run heavy offense provides tackle opportunities.

Week 5 Fantasy Basketball Circle Of Trust

Hornets SG Malik Monk

4-games this scoring period. Monk has scored in double figures in 4 straight contests.  Nic Batum’s return may impact Monk’s playing time in the long term. Monk has improved his shot selection and attacked the basket.  Owners looking for scoring should stream Monk this week.

Pelicans C Jaxon Hayes

Long term Hayes is a tremendous dynasty stash.  Hayes in the present will lose minutes to Derrick Favors and Jahlil Okafor when they are healthy.  Hayes has scored in double figures the last 2 games and has a combined 5 blocks. Pelicans have 4 games this week and Hayes is worthy of a daily play with Favors or Okafor is out. 

Hawks PF Jabari Parker

Has made the most of his opportunity with John Collins on suspension.  Parker has 8 or more rebounds in 8 of his last 9 games. Also has a string of 10 consecutive games scoring in double figures.  Parker should be in lineups for his 3-game week.

Week 11 Fantasy Football Circle Of Trust

Panthers QB Kyle Allen

Faces a Falcons defense that has allowed a league worst 113.2 opponent’s passer rating.  

Falcons RB Brian Hill

Panthers allow the 4th most fantasy points to opposing running backs. Hill should have a bell cow role.

Ravens WR Marquise “Hollywood” Brown

Ignore the lack of targets of targets the last 2 weeks. Brown goes deep vs. a Texans defense that has allowed the 3rd most fantasy points to opposing Wide Receivers. 

Raiders TE Darren Waller

Streak of 3 clunkers ends vs. the slump busting Bengals. 

Vikings K Dan Bailey

Broncos defense gives up an average of 18.9 Points per game, but has given up a league high 22 field goals. 

Raiders Defense

Home matchup with Ryan Finley led Bengals.  Raiders young players have started to turn the corner. 

Steelers Defensive Back Minkah Fitzpatrick

4 interceptions in the last 3 games.  Baker Mayfield is careless with the ball and has thrown 12 picks. 

Week 4 Fantasy Basketball Circle Of Trust

Warriors PF Eric Paschall

Shooting 54% from the floor and 90% from the charity stripe. On an injury riddled Warriors team, Paschall has carved out a significant role.  4-games this scoring period makes Paschall worth using in all formats. 

Celtics SG/ SF Jaylen Brown

Gordon Hayward is out for the foreseeable future with a broken hand.  Brown is averaging 18.8 PPG in 5 contests this season. Brown has blended well with Kemba Walker at the point.  In a 4-game week, Brown is a must start in all lineups.   

Grizzlies SF Jae Crowder

3 and D player is filling out stat sheet for young Grizzlies team.  4-game this scoring period Crowder has value for DFS play and daily categories league players. 

Week 10 Fantasy Football Circle Of Trust

49ers QB Jimmy Garoppolo

The Seahawks allow opposing passers to throw for an average of 278.1 yards-per-game. Improved receiving corps and solid running game setting up play action makes Jimmy G worthy of being in lineups this week.

Chiefs RB Damien Williams

Titans can be beat by running backs out of the backfield. See my Austin Ekeler pick from Week 7.  (7 catches 118 yards and a TD). Williams has taken back more of the workload from LeSean McCoy. With Mahomes returning I would anticipate the ball getting out of his hands quickly to avoid taken hits. 

Cardinals WR Larry Fitzgerald

A combined 7 catches the last 3 weeks.  Larry Legend is due for a market correction vs. the Bucs. 

Vikings TE Irv Smith

6 targets in 2 of the last 3 games.  With Thielen out, this move tight end may be more involved to create mismatches vs. the Cowboys. 

Panthers K Joey Slye

I can see the Panthers moving the ball vs. the Packers, but stalling out drives.

Saints Defense

Faces a Falcons offense that has allowed 60 QB hits.  Saints have a complete defense and Falcons are a complete mess. 

Chiefs DT Chris Jones

Titans have allowed a league most 38 sacks this season.  Jones is an elite pocket pusher that should cause fits for the Titans.
