Thoughts:

  • The New Orleans Saints offense was clicking last Sunday like it hasn’t all season long. I don’t think it’s a coincidence that it was also the first game played by Michael Thomas since Week 1. After all the games missed and the weird behind the scenes stories it’s easy to forget that Thomas was the clear cut number one receiver coming into the season after an absurd 149 receptions. He was eased back in to the mix last week with his 5 catches and 51 yards, but I think he’s only going to keep getting back to his old self and the 49ers defense is certainly not the unit to be feared as it once was.
  • There are a lot of things to bang on Bill O’Brien about from the last few years but bringing Brandin Cooks on board is something he did right, revitalizing Cooks career by giving him a quarterback who could throw the long ball. Cooks has found the end zone in three of the last four games with 27 catches total in those games. While the big story has been Will Fuller blossoming into a WR1, Cooks has been a heck of a number two option.
  • I really can’t stop banging the drum of Travis Fulgham as a legitimate fantasy option for the rest of this season and not just some flash in the pan. He has 4 TD in his last five games, and in his last four he hasn’t had less than five catches or 73 yards in any one game. The Eagles are somehow a team on the way to the playoffs and Fulgham is suddenly their most dangerous offensive option. He also has a possible budding number two receiver in Jalen Reagor that I am keeping a close on eye on too that could take some pressure off him.
  • The rookie season of Jerry Jeudy got off to a slow start after some very high expectations. The Broncos dealt with injuries at the quarterback position and then Jeudy dealt with injuries of his own. Now Drew Lock is back under center and Jeudy is fully healthy and coming off a big game last Sunday where he had 7 catches and 125 yards with a TD. The jury is still out on Lock, but he’s better than the guys behind him and Jeudy may be in for a big second half.
  • I am not afraid to admit when I am wrong, and while I wasn’t wrong about Dameire Byrd being a decent pickup for fantasy owners in New England it seems like Jakobi Meyers may be the new number one. Meyers blew up on Monday Night with 12 grabs and 169 yards as Cam Newton was locked in on him all night. It didn’t come completely out of nowhere as Meyers had 10 catches combined in the two games before this. Newton looks to be back in form again and someone has to catch the ball for the Patriots.  While I do still like Byrd, Meyers appears to be the man.

  1. Roto I cannot figure these 2 guys out.. I’m so disappointed in both and lost my patients. Who you like this week Jonnu Smith or Hunter Henry in PPR

  2. Hey roto! Who should i put in for my FLEX? M Williams, d mont, dj moore, AB.
    Seems like drake may be back this week, should i put him in instead of edmunds or does it even matter? Lol

  3. Who do you like in the flex spot?
    Meyers, Curtis Samuel or Tee Higgins.

    Also Thielen has burned me more than twice now. Why play him this week?

    PPR League

  4. 1/5 PPR. Starting Sanders & Gibson at RB, AJ Brown & McLaurin at WR. Choices for flex are Hunt, Godwin & Fulgham? Please rank them. Thanks

  5. Need one flex from these guys: Fuller @ Cleveland ( 40+ mph winds during the whole game) Godwin @ Carolina,, Hollywood @ NE or Fournette @ Carolina. Usually it’s Fuller but the winds 40-55 mph in Cleveland are a very big concern for the passing game.
