10/30/14- Fantasy Football Live Review

Fantasy Football Live 10/28/14 with Dave Briggs, Kay Adams, Andy Behrens, and Brad Evans.

Here are the takeaways from Tuesday’s episode:

  • Bobby Rainey should be the feature back in Tampa.  Pick up and play him.  Get off the Charles Sims bandwagon.*
  • Keenan Allen finally hit pay dirt.  25 targets over last two weeks and good match ups makes him a top 15 WR the rest of the season.
  • Carson Palmer looks great since coming back from injury,  He still available in 75% of NFL.com leagues.*
  • Michael Vick will start this week.
  • Top Adds in Yahoo Leagues: Andy Dalton, Ben Roethlisberger, Carson Palmer, Lorenzo Taliaferro, Charles Sims, Denard Robinson, Martavis Bryant, Brandon Lafell, Allen Robinson, Heath Miller, Larry Donnell, Tim Wright
  • The guys disagreed if Jonas Gray is a smart add for the Patriots despite their tough opponent this week, Denver who have allowed 2.65 yds/carry.
  • Brandon LaFell has surpassed Julien Edelman.*
  • Add Martavis Bryant.  Double-digit points two weeks in a row and facing an average Baltimore Defense vs WR’s.
  • Heath Miller isn’t worth adding despite his big week last week.  Only 9 targets in the three previous games.
  • Most Dropped Players in Yahoo Leagues: Ryan Tannehill, Joe Flacco, Kirk Cousins, Antone Smith, Bryce Brown, Tre Mason, Brian Quick, Wes Welker, Eddie Royal, Jordan Cameron, Owen Daniels, Charles Clay.
  • No reason to hold on to Doug Martin.*
  • Don’t drop Wes Welker this week, who is going against his former team.  But Denver faces a tough stretch of opponents, and is droppable after this week.*
  • With all the teams on byes, the following players are good fill ins: Andrew Hawkins, Ryan Tannehill, Alex Smith.*
  • Tom Brady, Allen Robinson, Bobby Rainey, Larry Fitzgerald are reliable again.
  • Don’t make the mistake of playing Tre Mason, Julien Edelman, Torrey Smith.*
  • Steaming Defenses (defenses you can pick up for a week based on matchup): Minnesota, Washington.
  • Giovani Bernard injury is not significant.  Play him.*
  • Michael Vick is starting for the Jets, but you should start Teddy Bridgewater and Brian Hoyer over him.
  • Rashad Jennings is NOT playing this week.  Andre Williams will be the RB1 in NY, but should be a flex in fantasy.
  • Trade Targets for the players with good match ups the rest of the season: Cam Newton, Matthew Stafford, Rueben Randle, Fred Jackson, Zach Ertz.
  • Though there is concern for Tony Romo, he is a top 12 fantasy QB this week.  He has a great schedule ahead of him.
  • Cordarrelle Patterson did well last week against a weak defense, but he’s still a boom or bust guy.*
  • Fearless forecast: Anquan Boldin with be a top 15 WR.

Broadway’s Breakdown:  (note: I put an asterisk next to the points that I STRONGLY agree with)  Bobby Rainey should be the man in Tampa, but that doesn’t mean he WILL be the man.  I have him projected for just 5.8 fantasy points, as I think the Buccaneers still haven’t given up all hope for Doug Martin.  Keenan Allen’s double-digit targets two weeks in a row are encouraging but he’d be a shaky WR2 in my book, because he still has to face 3 top 10 defenses vs fantasy WR this season.  Go status quo on Wes Welker.  He may have a big revenge game this week.. If you have him, keep him.  If you don’t have him, don’t pick him up.  I agree with the show that Ryan Tannehill and Andrew Hawkins are ideal plug and plays this week.  As for Larry Fitzgerald, I’m sorry, but I don’t like him the rest of the season.  I would trade him now while he’s in demand.  And though Cam Newton has an easy ride the rest of the way, I certainly would not make a move for the player I had ranked 13th best in the preseason at his position.

Fantasy Football Live 10/29/14 with Dave Briggs, Kay Adams, Brian Westbrook, Takeo Spikes, and Brandon Funston.

Here are the takeaways from Wednesday’s episode:

  • Romo is day-to-day.
  • There was disagreement over whether Ben Roethlisberger is a one-hit wonder or not, how well Denard Robinson will play against the Bengals, the Carolina RB situation,  the New England RB situation, Keenan Allen’s reliability, and Brandonn LaFell vs Julien Edelman,
  • Chris Ivory is worth starting against the Chiefs, who don’t allow a lot of touchdowns, but they do allow yardage.
  • Alfred Morris is a must start RB 2.  He has more carries than Matt Forte.*
  • Darren McFadden in a flex play at best this week because of all the byes and the 15-20 touches he’ll get.
  • Tre Mason is the victim of RBBC (RB By Committee), but still led the team in rushing last year, and you may want to stash him on the bench this week.
  • Desperation RB Player: Travaris Cadet
  • Start Bobby Rainey over Doug Martin.*
  • Expect Mohamed Sanu to continue to produce, even when A.J. Green returns.*
  • Take Brandon LaFell over Julien Edelman.
  • None of the experts like the Jets WR situation, even with Michael Vick starting.*
  • Brandon Funston has Cam Newton ranked as the number one fantasy QB this week.
  • Kay Adams is starting the bandwagon on Crockett Gillmore, who is filling in at TE for Baltimore.

Broadway’s Breakdown:  I know it’s a big new story, but is the Tony Romo a big FANTASY story?  The guy has been the 16th best fantasy QB over the past four weeks.  His toughest opponent for the remainder of the season is the Colts, who are the 12th most points to fantasy QBs, which is attractive, but in my book he’s still a borderline starter in a ten team league.  Again, I wouldn’t pick up Roethlisberger unless I was going to trade him ASAP.  However, his new WR Martavis Bryant is attractive, and available in 91% of leagues.  I agree with the “stay away from Carolina RBs” mentality.  But I would also apply that to their QB as well.  Despite the schedule, I wouldn’t touch Cam Newton with a ten foot pole.  It’s an absolute joke that any fantasy expert would have him ranked as the number one QB this week.  It’s controversy for the sake of controversy.
