Need some advice on who to start this week so you can tell that jerk in your fantasy league to shove it? Well look no further, here at DTR we have some of the best fantasy advice around. We will bring you the latest updates so you can show that guy whose the best team. Lets begin!
C. Carson, RB, SEA
Carson has scored a touchdown in three of his last four games, leading fantasy owners to flex him because of his consistent scoring streak. He also is averaging over 19 touches a game since Week 3. Even with a crowded backfield with Carson is leading the fantasy points for Seattle’s RBs. I’d consider him a nice flex starter against the division rivals, the Niners at home this weekend.
J. Goff, QB, LAR
After having a huge fantasy outing against the Chiefs, Goff gets a nice matchup this Sunday against the Lions. The Lions have performed poorly against quarterbacks in the last few weeks, allowing an astounding 116.5 passer rating and an average of 20 fantasy points to opposing QB’s in their last four games. Start Goff with confidence this week.
K. Golladay, WR, DET
Golladay currently sits as the top dog in Detroit after Tate was shipped away and Jones out for some time. He currently leads all wide receivers in targets since Week 10, averaging around 11.7 per game. Watch for Detroit to fed him heavily as this will be an offensive shootout. Golladay remains a very solid option as he will be the best option the Lions have in the passing game.
J. Howard, RB, CHI
Howard has fallen into the fantasy pit with his recent performances. He has failed to score over double-digit points in any of his last three games. This now one-dimensional runningback is now all but useless until he scores. Howard hasn’t seen the end zone since Week 9, so fantasy owners beware.
E. Manning, QB, NYG
Manning is up against one of the best defenses in the NFL, the Bears. They have surrendered a 78.3 passer rating and the second-fewest fantasy points (15.2 PPG) to opposing quarterbacks. Most likely Manning will preform a mediocre fantasy outing this Sunday so owners stay away as he has also thrown for under 300 yards the past few games.
C. Ridley, WR, ATL
Ridley playing as second fiddle to Julio has it ups and downs, but this week it will be down. He plays against a Ravens defense that has surrendered the second-fewest fantasy points (15.1 PPG) to receivers who have lined out wide this season. Ravens defense has been rough to wide receivers all year so this isn’t a surprise to see him on the sit column this week. Owners let him ride the bench this week and get ready for playoffs.
C. Herndon, TE, NYJ
Herndon has been a hidden gem for owners who already have him on their rosters, scoring at least 10 points in four of his last six games. Currently Herndon is only owned in under 15% of ESPN fantasy leagues. However, this week’s matchup against the Titans makes him a tough choice even in a thin market. Titans defense hasn’t allowed a touchdown catch to tights ends this year. Yet the Jets are limited on their weapons on offense and this rookie will find a way to produce. Expect him to put up around 10 points this week even against the Titans stingy defense.
L. Jackson, QB, BAL
Jackson has been decent in his two starts for the Ravens. He has ran for 200 combined yards and putting up almost 40 total fantasy points in those 2 starts. Jackson puts up mist of his points by running the ball but against this weak Falcons dreamer we could see him put up better passing stats. This should make him a viable starter in all leagues against this Atlanta defense.
G. Everett, TE, LAR
Everett has been seeing an increase in catches the last 3 weeks averaging 2.5 in those games. Granted this isn’t a lot of catches but 2 of those 3 games have resulted in 3 scores. With the injury to Kupp, McVay has increased the roles of his TEs so watch out for Everett to see more usage. Everett’s last 3 games, 9.8, 9.5, and 19.9 have been something to watch as a solid TE to play.
