Week 9 Fantasy Basketball Circle Of Trust

Cavaliers SG Alec Burks

6 or more rebounds in 5 of his last 6 games. Rebuilding Cavs have no reason not to see if Burks can catch lightning in a bottle in The Land.Will help in scoring and steals as well. 4-games this scoring period make Burks worth streaming.

Suns PG De’Anthony Melton

Tremendous physical gifts for this rookie PG. Melton has played 23 or more minutes in each of the last 3 games. With Devin Booker and TJ Warren for an unknown time Melton should see more run.  The full on tank mode Suns need to find out what Melton brings to the table. More value in a keeper league, but could be worth a stream for this 4-game week.

Hawks SG Kevin Huerter

Rookie sharp shooter could see a higher usage rate with Taurean Prince out with an injury.  Huerter has played 25 or more minutes and had 4 assists in 5 straight games.  Huerter could help streamers looking for 3-point shooting.  3-games this week, but still worthy of being in lineups.   

Week 14 Fantasy Football Circle Of Trust

Colts QB Andrew Luck

Threw for 3 or more TD in 8 straight games before last week’s clunker. Don’t get cute, keep Luck in your lineup vs. the Texans.

Chargers RB Justin Jackson

Bengals have allowed 19 total TD to opposing RB. Jackson will dazzle with his play in your Flex.

49ers RB Jeff Wilson Jr.

Broncos have been stingy vs. opposing RB, but Wilson Jr  is worth a PPR Flex

Bucs WR Chris Godwin

Shines vs. the Saints with D JAx out of the lineup.  

Bills WR Zay Jones  

Jets have allowed 4th most fantasy points to opposing WR. Torched Jets for 8-93-1 in Week 10.

Browns TE David Njoku

Panthers have given up 9 TD to opposing TE.

Saints TE Dan Arnold

TD dependant dart throw in a projected shootout with the Bucs.

Cowboys K Brett Maher

Should be busy vs. the Eagles

Bills Defense

3 sacks in each of the last 3 games and 5 INT in that span. Sam Darnold is a turnover machine.

Falcons LB Deion Jones

15 total tackles and a sack in his return last week. Busy vs. the Packers. Dtrue%3B%20s_omni_lid%3D%3B%20s_sq%3D%3B; s_vi=[CS]v1|2D6085778507AEA5-40000110800322C4[CE]

Week 8 Fantasy Basketball Circle Of Trust

Jazz SF/PF  Jae Crowder

3-games this matchup. Crowder is a 3 and D player that streamers can use to fill in with daily categories leagues.  Averaging 2.5 made from downtown over the last 7 days.

 

Bulls PG Ryan Arcidiacono

3-games this scoring period. Kris Dunn should be cleared for contact soon, but in the meantime feel free to roll with Arcidiancono. Streamers looking to help with percentages can use his 79% from the charity stripe and 44% from downtown. Basketball IQ should keep him in the rotation.

 

Celtics C Aron Baynes

86% from the charity stripe will help owners looking to boost percentage. Baynes has just 2 games this matchup. But any chance to go against the Knicks and Bulls is well worth it.

Week 13 Fantasy Football Circle Of Trust

Packers QB Aaron Rodgers

Has left a lot of yards on the field this season and hasn’t adjust his style of play of fit the skill sets of teammates. Due to rebound big vs. the Cardinals.  

 

Ravens RB Gus Edwards

Back-to-back games over 115 yards rushing. Falcons have given up 13 rushing TD and 5.1 YPC.

 

Panthers WR DJ Moore

I put him in the Circle vs. the Bucs for Week 9 and Moore disappointed with 1 catch for 16 yards. Last 2 games combined Moore has 15 catches for 248 yards and a TD.  Devin Funchess status could impact Moore’s usage. Even if Funchess returns roll with Moore vs. the Bucs.

 

Raiders TE Jared Cook

Chiefs have allowed a league worst 812 receiving yards to opposing tight ends. Cook has scored a TD in back-to-back games.  

 

Seahawks Kicker Sebastian Janikowski

Offense should be able to move the ball vs. 49ers defense.

 

Seahawks Defense/ Broncos Defense

Backup QB’s vs. an NFL defense can lead to the fantasy gold that is turnovers.

 

IDP

Raiders LB Tahir Whitehead

7 or more total tackles in 5 straight games.

Week 7 Fantasy Basketball Circle Of Trust

Knicks PF Noah Vonleh

The 9th overall pick of the 2014 NBA draft by the Charlotte Hornets. Vonleh bounced around to the Blazers and Bulls before landing in New York.  Vonleh is still just 23 years old. With 3 consecutive double-doubles, Vonleh is worth the pickup. The Knicks rotation is a mess, but Vonleh is a young player that’s finally getting an extended look.  Has a 3-game slate this week.

 

Cavaliers PG Collin Sexton

24.1 usage rate for the month of November. 47% from the field and 83% from the charity stripe in his last 6 games. Scored in double figures in 8 straight games. There’s no reason the tanking Cavs should go back to George Hill in the starting lineup upon return from injury. Cavs play 4 games this week.

 

Pacers PG Aaron Holiday

Added a spark to Pacers offense with Victor Oladipo out of the lineup.  Oladipo’s return will cut into his minutes, but Holiday could in turn take minutes away from Darren Collison and Cory Joseph.  Speculative long term add for fantasy owners. 4-games this scoring period.

Week 12 Fantasy Football Circle Of Trust

Eagles QB Carson Wentz

Doubtful that Wentz has another stinker this week vs. the Giants.

 

Vikings RB Dalvin Cook

Packers have allowed 100 plus yards from scrimmage to opposing running backs in 6 consecutive contests.  Cook’s speed on turf will expose Packers linebackers lack of ability to play in space.

 

Broncos WR Courtland Sutton

Adds the dimension of verticulation to the Broncos offense. His career high is just 3 catches in a single game. Sets new career high as the Steelers safeties can get beat over the top.

 

Buccaneers Tight End Cameron Brate

With O.J. Howard out for the season, Brate is a worthy streamer vs. the 49ers.  

 

Texans K Ka’imi Fairbairn

Titans have a bend, but don’t break defense which should give Fairbairn opportunities this week.   

 

Jaguars Defense

A tantalizing road matchup with Josh Allen and the Bills.

 

IDP

Bengals MLB Hardy Nickerson

Fills in in the middle with Preston Brown out for the year. Had 11 total tackles last week.

Week 6 Fantasy Basketball Circle Of Trust

Pelicans SG/SF E’Twaun Moore

Shooting 48% from downtown and 56% from the floor. Has scored in double figures in 5 straight games. Multiple position eligibility will help daily players looking to stream Moore for his 4 game week. Home on Monday vs. the Spurs, followed by road tilts with the Sixers on Wednesday, Friday vs. the Knicks, and Saturday against the Wizards. Knicks and Wizards rank in bottom 3rd of league in points allowed.

 

Spurs PG/SG Bryn Forbes

Gets consistent minutes in the Spurs rotation and has knocked down a 3-pointer in 7 consecutive games.  Can help balance out team free throw percentage with his 81% clip. 4-games this week on road Monday against the Pelicans, Wednesday home with the Grizzlies, then back to back road games starting Friday vs. the Pacers and Bucks. Daily streamers looking to get help in 3-pointers and Free Throw percentage could turn to Forbes.

 

Hornets SG/SF Jeremy Lamb

Back-to-back 20 plus point performances. 6 or more rebounds in 3 straight games. Plays 4 games this week home Monday vs. the Celtics, Wednesday at home with the Pacers, to the road on Friday against the Thunder, then out to Atlanta to take on the Hawks. Boston, Oklahoma City, and Indiana have the top 3 defensive ratings in the league. Lamb is still worth playing despite the tough matchups.

Week 11 Fantasy Football Circle Of Trust

Giants QB Eli Manning

Home date with the defensively challenged Bucs. Tampa has allowed a league worst 122.3 opponents passer rating.  Bucs have given up 23 passing TD and picked off just 1 pass.

 

Titans RB Dion Lewis

Colts have allowed 71 catches for 571 yards to opposing running backs this season. PPR Flex this week.

 

Eagles WR Alshon Jeffery

Saints have allowed 12 TD to opposing WR this season. Shootout in New Orleans.

 

Broncos TE Jeff Heuerman

Opposing tight ends have been targeted 73 times this season vs. the Chargers. With 6 teams on a bye Heuerman is a decent dart throw.

 

Buccaneers K Cairo Santos

Giants have allowed the most fantasy points to opposing kickers. This could be a high scoring matchup of bad on bad football.

 

Cardinals Defense

Home matchup with the free falling Raiders.

 

IDP

Chargers LB Jatavis Brown

Moves into the middle with injury to Denzel Perryman. Will Dazzle with his play vs. the Broncos.

Week 5 Fantasy Basketball Circle Of Trust

Suns SF TJ Warren

Moved back into the starting lineup with back to back 25 plus point performances. Suns are the lowest scoring team in the NBA at 101.2 PPG.  Warren can put the ball in the basket and that’s what the Suns need if they want to improve on a 2-10 record.  3 games this week on the road with the Thunder on Monday, a Wednesday home tilt with the Spurs, followed by a home game Saturday with the Thunder. Owned in 68.4% of ESPN leagues.

Knicks C Mitchell Robinson

Getting the chance to start in David Fizdale’s rotation. Robinson is a raw offensive player that will help fantasy owners with defensive stats. Robinson is averaging 1.8 BPG and 4.4 RPG in 18.0 MPG.  3 road games this week on Wednesday vs. the Thunder, Friday vs. the Pelicans, and Sunday against the Magic. Owned in 0.5% of ESPN leagues. Owners looking to streaming defensive stats can play Robinson.

Raptors PF Pascal Siakam

8 straight contests scoring in double figures. 7 or more rebounds in 6 of 13 games played this season. Siakam is starting and averaging 27.9 MPG. Head Coach Nick Nurse may have his hand forced to play Siakam more.  4 games this week Monday home with the Pelicans, Wednesday home against Detroit, followed by back to back road games with the Celtics and Bulls starting on Friday. Could get extra run in those since Kawhi Leonard doesn’t play back to backs. Owned in 36% of ESPN leagues.

Week 10 Fantasy Football Circle Of Trust

Browns QB Baker Mayfield

Home matchup with the Falcons. Mayfield has thrown 2 TD in 3 straight games. The Falcons allow a 102.5 opponents passer rating.

 

Bears RB Tarik Cohen

Lions have given up 8 total touchdowns to opposing running backs so far this season. Cohen’s big play ability should keep him in your lineups.  

 

Packers WR Marquez Valdes-Scantling

Dolphins don’t have enough talent in their secondary to stop all of the Packers weapons. MVS has passed Randall Cobb in the pecking order. MVS is worthy PPR Flex.

 

Redskins WR Maurice Harris

Opposing slot receivers have made the Bucs walk the plank this season. Harris is a worthy streamer if Jamison Crowder sits again. Harris caught 10 for 124 last week vs. the Falcons.

 

Saints TE Ben Watson

Bengals have allowed 53 catches for 602 yards and 5 TD to opposing Tight Ends.  I picked up Watson to block him from getting used against me this week.

 

Chargers K Mike Badgley

All ACC selection at the “U” in his senior season. Kicked earlier this season for Chargers and takes over job from Caleb Sturgis.

 

Chiefs Defense

Sacks and Turnovers will negate points and yards Cardinals will muster.

 

IDP

Chargers DT Corey Liuget

Should dazzle with his play vs. the Raiders turnstile offensive line.
