Week 13 Fantasy Football Circle Of Trust

Vikings QB Case Keenum

Thrown for over 280 yards in 4 straight contests. Falcons haven’t given up a TD pass in 3 of their last 4 contests.  Have to roll with the hot player.  

 

Chiefs RB Kareem Hunt

Hasn’t scored a rushing TD since Week 3 but you have to dance with what brought you.  Hunt should remain in lineups.

 

Bucs WR Mike Evans

Hasn’t scored a TD since Week 7. Should feast on Packers DB’s for first 100 yards game of the season.

Bonus

Jaguars WR Dede Westbrook

Leads team in Targets, Receptions and Receiving yards in last 2 weeks. Deep league play vs. the Colts.

Chargers TE Hunter Henry

Ran 9 more routes than Antonio Gates last week. Gravy matchup vs. the Browns.  

 

Jaguars K Josh Lambo

Should be busy vs. the Colts

 

Raiders Defense

Home matchup with the newly inserted Geno Smith for the Giants. Raiders statistically are near the bottom of the league in team defense.  Home vs. Geno helps those stats.

 

Rams DL Aaron Donald

Sacks in 5 of his last 6 contests.  Cardinals offensive line has allowed 83 QB hits and 29 sacks.

10-Team PPR Draft

10-Team PPR Snake Draft starting with pick 7. Had connection problem just as it was my turn to pick as Theo Riddick was auto-picked instead of Jimmy Graham.  Here’s my team no Tight End is required in the lineup. Feel free to comment on this roster. If you’ve read my other posts you’ll notice I have 5 teams and all have Pierre Garcon.

Rookie Late Round Running Backs To Track

The NFL Draft provides plenty of opportunities for over-analysis. I’ll spare you breaking down all the Running Backs selected in this year’s draft. In this piece I’m targeting the late round Running Backs I plan to pay attention to this offseason and in training camp.

Redskins RD 4 pick 114 Samaje Perine Oklahoma.  Serious threat to take starting job from Rob Kelley. Perine is a smasher that is better in the passing game than advertised. I plan to track Perine closely in training camp to see the rep distribution over Kelley. Matt Jones is possibly expendable after drafting Perine. Solid seasonal fantasy league prospect

Chiefs RD 3 pick 86 Kareem Hunt Toledo.  Excelled at Senior Bowl, but fell flat at Combine. Chiefs traded up to draft Hunt.  Solid runner that could steal touches and possibly job from Spencer Ware. This move downgrades Ware a bit on my draft boards. Late round seasonal fantasy league prospect and has significant value in the Dynasty Format.

Colts RD 4 pick 143 Marlon Mack South Florida. Mack is very physically gifted, but Colts coaching staff has a lot of work to do to get Mack ready to contribute. All of the bouncing outside and indecisiveness running inside doesn’t work in the NFL. With polish could be a solid contributor as a rookie. Worth a Dynasty league pick. Training camp reports will be very important in figuring out if and where to draft Mack in seasonal fantasy leagues.

Bucs RD 5 pick 162 Jeremy McNichols Boise State. 3-down back one of few rookie RB’s that is really solid in pass protection. Should provide competition to Martin, Sims, and Rodgers for playing time. Training camp reports may move McNichols for a solid dynasty pick to a solid late round seasonal choice.

Packers Head Coach Mike McCarthy has confirmed that despite drafting 3 running backs, Ty Montgomery is the starter. Late last season Montgomery provided the Packers with a spark in the backfield. We’ll see if the Packers go with more of a committee approach in 2017. Each 4 of these backs presents a different skill set. Camp reports will really dictate how to approach this backfield. If I had to choose today with Rookie RB to draft out of this trio, it would be Jones.

Packers RD 4 pick 134 Jamal Williams BYU.  Inside runner that doesn’t dance. Needs polish in running thru lanes and may not get much more than what is blocked. In Packers offense could be a solid contributor right away.

Packers RD 5 pick 182 Aaron Jones UTEP. Most dynamic out of this trio. Can run inside and has explosive play potential. I like him more than quite a few runners taken earlier in the draft.

Packers RD 7 pick 238 Devante Mays Utah St.  Most physically gifted out of this trio. Ankle injuries derailed his final college season. Mays is a terrific lottery ticket at pick 238. Contributing on special teams would help secure a roster spot. Would like to see if a program with NFL trainers could keep him healthy.
