Week 8 Fantasy Football Circle Of Trust

Bears QB Mitch Trubisky

Thrown for over 300 yards and rushed for over 45 yards in 3 straight games. Footwork and pocket presence is better than it was early in the season. Jets have given up an average of 25.1 PPG.  Trubisky is a streamer with 4 teams on bye. Bear Down.

 

49ers RB Raheem Mostert

Matt Breida is banged up and with a game coming up on Thursday, Kyle Shanahan may have to spread the workload out. Mostert is a 4th year pro that has bounced around the league and is finally getting an opportunity. Ran a 4.32 40 yard dash in college. The matchup with the Cardinals is gravy as they have allowed a league worst 128.1 YPG on the ground and league worst 12 rushing TD.

 

Packers WR Geronimo Allison

Injuries have curtailed a breakout for Allison this season. 5 or more catches in 3 out of 4 games played. Also over 60 receiving yards in each game played. Rams have given up 7 receptions over 40 yards this year. Flex play this week.

 

Bucs TE OJ Howard

High scoring affair with the Bengals. In a thin position, Howard has scored in double digits in PPR scoring in 4 of 6 games played.

 

Redskins K Dustin Hopkins

8 or more points in 3 straight contests.

 

Steelers Defense

Coming off the bye should be able to put up points vs. the Browns. 3 or more sacks in 4 games, including 7 in the opener vs. the Browns.

 

Jets Safety Jamal Adams

6 or more total tackles in 6 of 7 games this season.

Week 2 Fantasy Basketball Circle Of Trust

Bulls SG Zach LaVine

5th in NBA in usage percentage at 33.0% and has a 4-game slate.  LaVine is the main scorer on a really bad Bulls team. Faces the Mavericks on the road on Monday, home and home with the Hornets on Wednesday and Friday, followed up with a Saturday road tilt vs. the Hawks. The Mavericks and Hawks are awful defensively which should allow LaVine to stuff the stat sheet.

 

Mavericks PG JJ Barea

Tied for league lead in APG at 10.5 with Rajon Rondo.  Barea is averaging just 21.5 MPG. 4-games this week vs. the Bulls on Monday, on the road with the Hawks on Wednesday, Raptors on Friday, and home with the Jazz on Sunday.   Streamers looking for assists should roll with Barea while he’s hot.

 

Heat SG Dwyane Wade

2 home games this week Wednesday vs. the Knicks and Saturday with the Blazers. Wade is locked into a solid role in the 2nd unit. Had 2 Blocks in his last game, 2 Steals in the 2nd game of the season, and 11 boards in the opener. Streamers looking to supplement defensive stats from the backcourt should consider this 37-year-old.

Week 1 Fantasy Basketball Circle Of Trust

Nuggets Point Guard Jamal Murray

Clunker in the opener shooting 3 of 12 from the field for just 7 points. Salvaged the day with 5 Boards, 3 Assists, and 1 steal.  I anticipate more production on Saturday vs. the turnstile defense of the Suns. Sunday should be a shootout with the Warriors. I own Murray in both of my leagues.

 

Clippers PG Shai Gilgeous-Alexander

Dynamite opening game SGA had 11 points on 5/6 Shooting, 4 Assists, 2 Boards, 1 Steal, and  1 Block. 2 remaining home games against the Thunder on Friday followed by the Rockets on Sunday. SGA ownership percentage will skyrocket quickly.

 

Nets SG Caris LeVert

27 points including 7/8 from the Free Throw line in the opener vs. the Pistons along with 4 boards, 4 Assists, 1 Steal, and 1 Block. Home with the Knicks on Friday and a Saturday road tilt with the Pacers. The breakout looks to be in full swing. Pumped I was able to draft him late in a keeper league for just $4.   

Week 7 Fantasy Football Circle Of Trust

Bengals QB Andy Dalton

Chiefs have given up 104 first downs thru the air and allow 28.7 PPG.  Play Dalton in a shootout.

 

Lions RB Kerryon Johnson

Dolphins allow 118.2 yards per game on the ground. May still lose short yardage work to LeGarrette Blount, but is worth a ppr flex play.

 

Ravens WR Michael Crabtree

Saints allow 12.7 Yards Per Reception. 5 or more catches in 4 games this season. Stable baseline with Red Zone Looks.

 

Browns TE David Njoku

Buccaneers have allowed the most fantasy points per game to opposing Tight Ends. Njoku has 5 or more catches in 3 straight games.

 

Rams K Greg Zuerlein

Check to see if he’s still available in your league. I surprisingly was able to pick him up in a league.

 

Colts defense

Bills have allowed 24 sacks and 37 QB Hits so far this season.  Derek Anderson coming off the street behind a shaky O-Line should produce turnovers.

 

Bears S Adrian Amos

Patriots should be able to get into the 2nd level of the Bears defense creating tackle opportunities for Amos.

Week 6 Fantasy Football Circle Of Trust

Buccaneers QB Jameis Winston

Owns a career 110.0 passer rating vs. the Falcons.  Falcons and Buccaneers are the 2 worst scoring defenses in the NFL. Shootout in Atlanta.

 

Raiders RB Marshawn Lynch

Faces the Seahawks in London. Seattle is giving up 129.0 yards per game on the ground.

 

Buccaneers RB Ronald Jones

I’m forced to play him in a deep league. Saw more touches than Peyton Barber in Week 4. Tide slowly turning in Jones favor. Good matchup ultimate dart throw.

 

Texans WR Keke Coutee

Texans throw the ball a ton as evidenced by Deshaun Watson’s 4 straight 300 yard games. Coutee has done damage in the slot to the tune of 17 catches for 160 yards combined in last 2 games. Injuries to Bills secondary means Coutee could be busy again this week.

 

Bengals TE CJ Uzomah

Steelers have allowed 99 yards per game to opposing Tight Ends. Blows season high of 3 for 45 out of the water this week.

 

Texans K Ka’imi Fairbairn

3 or more field goals in 3 straight contests.

 

Packers Defense

Home on Monday Night Football vs. the 49ers. Ignore the 29 or more points allowed in 3 of 5 games. CJ Beathard has a propensity to turn the ball over.  

 

Bengals Safety Jesse Bates

8 or more total tackles in 3 games this season. Should be busy vs. the Steelers explosive offense.

Week 5 Fantasy Football Circle Of Trust

Redskins QB Alex Smith

Saints have allowed an opponent’s passer rating of 128.7.  I love to go with players coming off their bye week. Smith gets first 300-yard game of the season.

 

Packers RB Aaron Jones

Lions allow 157.8 yards per game on the ground. Projections for Aaron Jones are criminally low. Jones further cements his role in Packers offense this week.

 

Jaguars WR Dede Westbrook

Lining up more in slot this season and paid dividends last week.  Chiefs Slot CB Kendall Fuller has been burned thru 3 contests this season.  Slot receivers vs. the Chiefs could be weekly waiver wire gold.

 

Steelers TE Vance McDonald

Shootout with the Falcons. If you pay attention to the Circle Of Trust, the Falcons defense is one of my targets for receivers due to injuries.

 

Packers K Mason Crosby

Should be busy in Detroit with injuries in receiving corps.

 

Titans Defense

3 or more sacks in 3 of 4 games this season.  Blitz a lot on defense and Josh Allen struggles picking up the blitz. Could be pinball points for Titans in Buffalo.

 

Redskins Safety Montae Nicholson

5 or more total tackles in all games so far. Should be busy with Saints high powered offense.
