Overview:

Your receivers are the strongest part of this team. While no team can be expected to be above average at all three core positions (QB/RB/WR), you are in the precarious position of being a bit weak at two of them.

Although you should not be counted out yet, you may need to be active on both the waiver wire and in trades to turn this team into a legitimate contender. The best way to achieve that might be to sacrifice some of your wide receiver strength to gain multiple players than can help your roster now. It's generally easier finding quarterbacks and wide receivers on the waiver wire than quality running backs.

Keep an eye out for quarterbacks like Dak Prescott from last year, Blake Bortles from 2015, and Ben Roethlisberger from 2014. All were available cheap in August, and all contributed to fantasy championship teams. Likewise, running backs like Rob Kelley and Mike Gillislee could be had dirt cheap at the draft or shortly after. You are likely going to need to land some of this year's top waiver plays, so pay close attention to increased workloads, targets, injuries, etc.

Players we particularly like on this team include Stefon Diggs, Tyrod Taylor, and Sammy Watkins. We have all these guys ranked ahead of where they are typically being drafted.

Bottom line:
  • With great inseason management, we think you have about a 60 percent chance of making the playoffs.
  • With good inseason management, we think you have about a 45 percent chance of making the playoffs.
  • With average inseason management, we think you have a 25 percent chance of making the playoffs.

In any event, we wish you the best of luck. Here's hoping all your weeks are like week 12 of 2015:

Sammy Watkins vs. KC: 158 receiving yards, 2 TD
C.J. Anderson vs. NE: 153 combined yards, 2 TD
Matthew Stafford vs. PHI: 337 passing yards, 5 TD
T.Y. Hilton vs. TB: 95 receiving yards, 2 TD
Tyrod Taylor vs. KC: 291 passing yards, 3 TD
Odell Beckham Jr vs. WAS: 142 receiving yards, 1 TD

QB Summary:

We have Matthew Stafford rated #15 among quarterbacks, so we're not even sold on him as a fantasy starter in your league. But #17-rated QB Tyrod Taylor provides you with another viable option. So while the position doesn't figure to be a strength, with shrewd management and a little luck you might end up with decent production at QB

Incidentally, these two have a terrific combined schedule and a decent playoff schedule too. If you simply played the one with the better matchup each week, this is the schedule you'd face:

NYJ | CAR | ATL | ATL | CIN | NO | TB | OAK | GB | CLE | LAC | KC | NE | IND | MIA | NE

A quick note about the same-team Stafford/Theo Riddick duo you've got here. Though the effect is probably negligible, this kind of pairing is likely to make your team more (not less) consistent than a comparable-scoring different-team pair. See this article (which was written before the 2008 season) for more discussion.

RB Summary:

We see both your starters at running back as below average. Our projections have Leonard Fournette ranked at #14 and Theo Riddick ranked 30th.

Your bench looks good and should help offset the unexciting starting unit. C.J. Anderson should be a good third running back.

Though some teams will probably be content to roster as few as three players here, it was not a bad idea to take a few extras because you're not particularly strong overall at the position. Of your remaining guys, we like Samaje Perine the best, but you should keep the one you think has the best chance of putting up starter numbers. The rest might be considered expendable if you find you need roster space elsewhere.

WR Summary:

Nice work here. We like all your starting receivers, as our projections indicate that they give you a combined 3.9 point-per-game advantage over an average opponent in this league. Odell Beckham Jr is our third ranked WR, T.Y. Hilton is #12, and we have Stefon Diggs 22nd.

Your bench also looks good. Sammy Watkins looks great as a fourth receiver. But we are not at all excited about Robert Woods as a fifth WR.

Again, the same-team aspect of the Diggs/Kyle Rudolph duo does not concern us.

TE Summary:

Kyle Rudolph, who we have ranked #7, is below average but probably adequate as a starting tight end. You might get by with only Rudolph, but some additional help here probably wouldn't hurt.

Kicker Summary:

Matt Prater, our 13th ranked kicker, is below average but probably adequate.

Defense Summary:

The Panthers are probably not a difference-maker at defense, but they should be OK.

When you don't have an elite defense, one option is a committee approach. That is, try to get two cheap defenses whose schedules fit well together. Here are a few teams who we think may be available and whose schedules fit best with the Panthers', along with the combined schedule that each would create:

Panthers   +   Jaguars   =   SF | TEN | BAL | NYJ | DET | LAR | CHI | TB | CIN | LAC | CLE | NYJ | IND | MIN | HOU | SF
Panthers   +   Bills   =   NYJ | CAR | DEN | ATL | CIN | PHI | CHI | TB | NYJ | NO | LAC | NYJ | NO | IND | MIA | TB
Panthers   +   Eagles   =   SF | BUF | NO | LAC | ARI | CAR | CHI | SF | DEN | MIA | DAL | NYJ | NO | LAR | NYG | TB

Schedule and Matchup Notes:

  • Please note that the Relative strength numbers above account for both byes and matchups.
  • Remember that you might have starters on bye in a given week, but still have a high relative strength. This could occur because of favorable matchups, or it might be because you are projected to be missing less production than an average opponent will (your opponents have to deal with byes too).
  • Week 7 presents serious bye week issues for you: Matthew Stafford, Theo Riddick, and Matt Prater are off.
  • Week 8 presents serious bye week issues for you: Leonard Fournette, Odell Beckham Jr, Sammy Watkins, and Robert Woods are off.
  • Week 11 presents moderate bye week issues: Joe Williams, T.Y. Hilton, and Carolina Panthers are not playing.
  • Stefon Diggs and Kyle Rudolph are out in week 9, but your opponent will likely have comparable issues with byes.
  • In weeks 4, 5, 6, 10, and 12 you'll probably be better off than your opponent, as far as byes are concerned.

Projections and Player Summaries

Tyrod Taylor29244730406.82210904954337.517

Matthew Stafford - Stafford is a franchise quarterback entering his prime years at age 29. While he hasn't reached the elite status many expected when he was drafted first overall in 2009, he has established himself as an above-average starter. After being labeled as injury prone early in his career, Stafford has proven incredibly durable and started every game over the past six seasons. He has also been consistently productive, throwing for 4,250+ yards in every season since 2011. In 2016, he threw for 4,327 passing yards (a slight increase over his 2015 total) but saw his touchdown passes decrease from 32 in 2016 to just 24 last season. Stafford has evolved over the past two seasons into a much more cerebral quarterback and drastically cut down his turnovers. He has just 12 interceptions in 25 starts since Jim Bob Cooter took over as offensive coordinator midway through the 2015 season. Stafford has consistently thrown for 4,250 yards but his fantasy upside will hinge largely upon whether he can get back to throwing for 30+ touchdowns. His lack of top red zone options at receiver will make that a difficult task and could lead to Stafford again landing in the high-end QB2 range.

Tyrod Taylor - Taylor enters his third year as a starter, but his situation is not firm. The Bills hesitated when it came to reworking his contract and didn't make a real long-term commitment to him when they did come to terms. He's going to have to fight for work with Cardale Jones, TJ Yates and rookie Nathan Peterman. If he can't separate from them, it'll be a bad look. If he does win the job, two things make that job tougher. One, his constantly injured and sub-average receiving corps and second, the run-first offense. The first the team is hoping will be improved by the addition of rookie Zay Jones, but replacing Sammy Watkins with Jordan Matthews is a huge downgrade for Taylor. The Bills have said they will still lean on the run and while they threw more than they ran - 474 attempts compared to 382 -but they are still below par for the rest of the NFL. That makes his lower touchdown total - 17 (23 if you count his rushing touchdowns) - more of an issue. Those factors combined makes Taylor unreliable most weeks.

PlayerRshYDY/RshTDRecYDTDFPTRank

Samaje Perine1054464.23968078.463
Joe Williams0000000.0128

C.J. Anderson - There's always something that keeps C.J. Anderson from playing up to his potential. The talent as a runner and receiver out of the backfield is there, but injuries have hampered Anderson's pro career. Last year, Anderson suffered a meniscus injury in Week 7 against the Texans (in a game he rushed for over 100 yards) and that caused him to miss the rest of the year. He's been recovering since then, and Anderson should be on the field for most all of the work in OTAs and minicamp. New head coach Vance Joseph says the Broncos are going to have a competition at running back, but Anderson has to be considered the frontrunner at this time. Anderson is taking his conditioning more seriously than ever and seems to ride his bicycle 40 miles a day around the Mile High City. He's got to compete with Jamaal Charles and Devontae Booker for the top spot on the depth chart. We should see the Broncos use a form of RBBC in 2017, and that will negatively impact Anderson's fantasy value even if he's the starter.

Leonard Fournette - The Jaguars are looking like they are taking the same all-in approach with Leonard Fournette at running back this year as they did with Blake Bortles at quarterback in 2014. Fournette was the 4th Overall Pick in this year's NFL Draft and is ready to contribute at the NFL level immediately. In three years (31 games) at LSU, Fournette rushed for 3,830 yards, 40 touchdowns, and averaged 6.2 yards per carry. Jaguars General Manager Dave Caldwell says that the decision to use the fourth overall pick on running back Leonard Fournette was about making the Jaguars a better team immediately. "Leonard's a guy we think can come in and make an immediate impact, we're in a win now mode as we should be." Jacksonville's offensive line has been a question mark for some time now as no running back has averaged 4.0 yards per carry since 2011. As a team they only ran the ball 37 percent of the time in 2016 but that has a lot to do with the team being behind in games. The question on Fournette that everyone wants to know is if he is an NFL three-down-back. In 31 games at LSU he caught 40 passes but yet still managed to drop 8 passes.

Samaje Perine - Washington finished 21st in rushing yards, but that paints an unfair picture as the team only ran the ball 379 times (27th in the league). The team averaged 4.5 yards per attempt (9th) and scored 17 rushing touchdowns (6th). In other words, the pieces are in place for a competent running back to make a major fantasy impact. Rookie Samaje Perine will get a chance to compete for the job, although Rob Kelley isn't going to give up the role easily. Perine -- not as well known in most circles as his infamous teammate Joe Mixon -- is Oklahoma's all-time leading rusher. At 5'11", 233 lbs., Perine hearkens back to the days when Joe Gibbs was pounding John Riggins behind the Hogs. Don't mistake his build and power game for being one dimensional; he apprised himself well as a route runner in workouts.

Theo Riddick - Theo Riddick has developed into one of the best receiving backs in the league and is a big part of the Lions passing game. He missed six games last season but still managed to catch 53 passes (5.3 per game). In 2015, he caught 80 passes (5.0 per game). Riddick has not performed well as a runner however, with a career average of just 3.5 yards per attempt. He did show signs of modest improvement as a runner last season however. His 3.9 YPC and 92 rushing attempts in 2016 both rank as career highs. The Lions locked Riddick up last fall with a three-year extension that will keep him in Detroit through the 2019 season. Riddick's value in fantasy leagues is mostly limited to the PPR format, where his average of 5.1 receptions per game over his past 26 games projects out to 82 catches in a full season. He is low-end RB2 with some further upside should Ameer Abdullah get injured again or prove ineffective in the lead role.

Sammy Watkins00070101514.57213.523
Robert Woods0004352512.24119.567

Odell Beckham Jr - Odell Beckham may pout. He may let defensive backs get under his skin. He may frustrate teammates on the sidelines. He also dominates the receiver position in away unseen by anyone not named Randy Moss. It's a fair trade-off. Through three seasons, Beckham has 288 receptions (2nd all-time), 4,122 yards (2nd all-time) and 35 touchdowns (4th all-time). That's in spite of playing 43 of 48 regular season games. On a per-game basis, his first three years have been unmatched. Beckham can do anything the team requires. He runs great routes, he knows how to get separation, he attacks the ball, and his body positioning is unparalleled. The only reason for pause is the Giants addition of veteran Brandon Marshall and drafting of 1st round TE (aka oversized receiver) Evan Engram. The Giants have more depth at receiver, and therefore Beckham is unlikely to repeat last season's 169 targets. Beckham is a lock first round choice in every fantasy format.

Stefon Diggs - Stefon Diggs had a solid season with an 84/903/3 statline on 112 targets (in 14 games). Diggs coming out party was in Week 2 against the Packers where he caught 9 of 11 targets for 182 yards and a touchdown. Look for the duo of Thielen and Diggs to pick up where they left off in 2016 and hopefully a third WR can step up this season with the departure of Cordarrelle Patterson.

T.Y. Hilton - T.Y. Hilton increased his fantasy ranking in each of his first three years in the league (25, 19, 10). In 2015 Andrew Luck missed nine games due to various injuries, but Hilton still managed to finish in the Top 25 among fantasy wide receivers. In 2016 Hilton had a career best Top 5 finish, which was aided by a multiple-week injury to Donte Moncrief and subsequent lack of help from other receivers. As a result, Hilton had career highs in targets (155) receptions (91) and receiving yards (1,448). Moncrief is returning healthy in 2017 which will reduce Hilton's involvement on offense. He'll still be Luck's top target, but his production should go down with Moncrief's return. In five years, Hilton has never had less than five touchdowns in a season and he has only missed two games in his career. He's one of the most consistent receivers in the game and he has an elite quarterback who trusts his ability to get open regardless of coverage. Hilton can run the entire route tree and has shown success no matter where he lines up. He may not reach Top 5 status in 2017, but he's a solid WR2 who is capable of putting up WR1 numbers any given week.

Sammy Watkins - Watkins is now a Ram, and while Tyrod Taylor isn't a huge fantasy value creator for wide receivers, Jared Goff has to be considered even more of a ceiling capper, especially because the Rams have a better supporting cast of targets. His value is down after the trade, and it will take a bit for ADP to adjust. His foot did look sound in the preseason opener and his injury risk should be considered lower than it was before we saw him.

Robert Woods - Robert Woods signed a significant free agent contract, moving from the Bills to the Rams this offseason. Woods sporadically saw lead receiver duties in Buffalo, but primarily was the chain-moving secondary option in four NFL seasons with the Bills. Woods profiles as a low-floor, low-upside option and the Rams were aggressive in the NFL Draft stocked the pass game cupboard, plus adding Sammy Watkins late in the offseason via trade. Receivers Cooper Kupp and Josh Reynolds join tight end Gerald Everett for the Rams rookie haul, pointing to a changing of the guard after the Rams' struggles in 2016. Woods fits as a No.2 or No.3 NFL receiver, which is where he settles on the depth chart considering the Rams' latest additions this offseason.

PlayerRecYDY/RecTDFPTRank
Kyle Rudolph757439.96185.37

Kyle Rudolph - Kyle Rudolph finished the 2016 season as the 3rd ranked fantasy tight end. He did so quietly and posted the best numbers of his career at 83/840/7. The chemistry between Bradford and Rudolph was real as he was targeted 132 times which is far and above more than any other year in Rudolph's 6 year career. Rudolph is a big time red zone target for Bradford and with Bradford having to dive into the Vikings offense with such a short learning curve he instantly had a connection with his TE and continued it through out the season.

Redskins | Samaje Perine listed as limited - Washington Redskins RB Samaje Perine (finger) was limited during practice Monday, Nov. 20. Mon Nov 20, 04:42 PM     [Link to story]

Jaguars | Leonard Fournette's ankle likely to linger - Jacksonville Jaguars RB Leonard Fournette (ankle) will likely have to deal with his lingering ankle injury the rest of the season, and his workload will be limited during the week before games. Mon Nov 20, 09:31 AM     [Link to story]

Footballguys view: This is no surprise to those who watched Fournette star in college for the LSU Tigers. The ankle/foot problems that plagued him then have followed him to the pros. When at full strength, Fournette can dominate but even if he's banged up and managing the pain the rookie can lead the way on the ground. Fournette said he dealt with throbbing ankle pain in Week 11.

Broncos | C.J. Anderson held in check - Denver Broncos RB C.J. Anderson rushed 13 times for 37 yards and a touchdown and caught two passes for 19 yards in a 20-17 loss to the Cincinnati Bengals in Week 11. Sun Nov 19, 11:38 PM     [Link to story]

Rams | Robert Woods bangs up shoulder - Los Angeles Rams WR Robert Woods (shoulder) suffered a shoulder injury in the Week 11 game against the Minnesota Vikings, but a source said Sunday, Nov. 19, that the injury isn't too serious. He'll be re-evaluated Monday, Nov. 20. Sun Nov 19, 11:12 PM     [Link to story]

Redskins | Samaje Perine tops 100 yards - Washington Redskins RB Samaje Perine rushed 23 times for 117 yards and a touchdown and caught one pass for nine yards in a 34-31 loss to the New Orleans Saints in Week 11. Sun Nov 19, 09:31 PM     [Link to story]

Jaguars | Leonard Fournette piles up 111 yards - Jacksonville Jaguars WR Leonard Fournette posted 28 rushes for 111 yards in Week 11 against the Cleveland Browns. Sun Nov 19, 07:44 PM     [Link to story]

Footballguys view: Fournette was strong despite questions about his ankle and a tough rush defense matchup. He should be back to elite RB1 status against the Cardinals next week.

Vikings | Stefon Diggs posts four receptions - Minnesota Vikings WR Stefon Diggs managed four catches for 32 yards on six targets in Week 11 agaisnt the Los Angeles Rams. Sun Nov 19, 06:43 PM     [Link to story]

Footballguys view: Diggs is now squarely in Adam Thielen's shadow in the Minnesota passing game. He is still a high ceiling WR3/Flex and may benefit if Thielen starts drawing the better corners, such as Darius Slay coming up on Thanksgiving.

Vikings | Kyle Rudolph totals 58 yards - Minnesota Vikings TE Kyle Rudolph hauled in five receptions for 58 yards on seven targets in the Week 11 game against the Los Angeles Rams. Sun Nov 19, 06:43 PM     [Link to story]

Rams | Sammy Watkins held in check - Los Angeles Rams WR Sammy Watkins posted three grabs for 36 yards on four targets in Week 11 against the Minnesota Vikings. Sun Nov 19, 06:39 PM     [Link to story]

Footballguys view: Watkins faced Xavier Rhodes at times in the continuing cavalcade of strong cornerbacks against him, although he could dodge Marshon Lattimore next week if Lattimore's ankle isn't ready after he left this week's game.

Rams | Robert Woods finishes with eight grabs - Los Angeles Rams WR Robert Woods finished with eight receptions for 81 yards on 11 targets in Week 11 against the Minnesota Vikings. Sun Nov 19, 06:38 PM     [Link to story]

Footballguys view: Woods didn't have a huge break the game open plays, but he was still a steady target for Jared Goff on a day that nothing came easy. He remains a solid WR2 with a high PPR floor heading into a matchup with the Saints who might be without Marshon Lattimore.

Lions | Theo Riddick totals 10 touches - Detroit Lions RB Theo Riddick rushed nine times for a team-high 35 yards in Week 11 against the Chicago Bears and he added one reception for four yards on two targets. Sun Nov 19, 05:35 PM     [Link to story]

Lions | Matthew Stafford posts 299 yards, two TDs - Detroit Lions WR Matthew Stafford completed 21 of his 31 pass attempts for 299 yards, two touchdowns and no interceptions in the Week 11 game against the Chicago Bears. Sun Nov 19, 05:33 PM     [Link to story]

Footballguys view: Stafford started quietly but warmed up as the game went along. He was able to make use of a wide range of receivers for the second straight week. He'll be a low QB1 in a tough matchup against the Vikings on Thanksgiving.

Jaguars | Leonard Fournette active for Week 11 - Updating a previous report, Jacksonville Jaguars RB Leonard Fournette (ankle) is active for Week 11's game against the Cleveland Browns. Sun Nov 19, 11:15 AM     [Link to story]

Footballguys view: Lower your expectations for Fournette and know that he carries a lot of risk this week, but err on the side of leaving him in your lineup.

Jaguars | JAX hopeful that Leonard Fournette can play - The Jacksonville Jaguars are optimistic that RB Leonard Fournette (ankle) will be able to play in Week 11's game against the Cleveland Browns, according to a source. He will undergo a pregame evaluation to determine if he will be active. Sun Nov 19, 08:41 AM     [Link to story]

Footballguys view: Fournette is more of a boom/bust RB2 than an RB1 this week if he is active because of the tough matchup against the Browns run defense and his ankle problem.

Vikings | Stefon Diggs fined - Minnesota Vikings WR Stefon Diggs was fined $12,154 by the National Football League for committing an unsportsmanlike conduct penalty in Week 10's game versus the Washington Redskins. He was flagged for hugging the goal post as part of a touchdown celebration. Sat Nov 18, 09:54 AM     [Link to story]

Jaguars | Leonard Fournette officially questionable - Jacksonville Jaguars RB Leonard Fournette (ankle) is officially listed as questionable for Week 11 against the Cleveland Browns after failing to practice Friday, Nov. 17. Fri Nov 17, 05:47 PM     [Link to story]

Footballguys view: It looks like Fournette is a game-time decision for Week 11. Make sure to monitor his status on Sunday morning. If Fournette misses time or is limited, we'd see more from T.J. Yeldon and perhaps even Chris Ivory.

Jaguars | Week 11 injury report for Jacksonville - Jacksonville Jaguars WR Arrelious Benn (knee) and WR Allen Hurns (ankle) did not practice Friday, Nov. 17, and have been ruled out for Week 11 against the Cleveland Browns. LB Blair Brown (hamstring), RB Leonard Fournette (ankle), OL Patrick Omameh (quad) and OL Jermey Parnell (knee) did not participate in practice Friday and are listed as questionable. QB Blake Bortles (wrist, illness) LB Lerentee McCray (foot) and CB Jalen Ramsey (back) each practiced in full Friday and have been removed from the injury report. PK Josh Lambo (hip), WR Marqise Lee (knee), TE Marcedes Lewis (knee) and DE Dawuane Smoot (knee) were all limited in practice Friday but also no longer appear on the injury report. Fri Nov 17, 02:47 PM     [Link to story]

Jaguars | Leonard Fournette's ankle still not right - Updating an earlier report, Jacksonville Jaguars RB Leonard Fournette (ankle) is 'still not right,' regarding his ankle injury, according to a source. Fournette could be limited if he plays in Week 11. Fri Nov 17, 11:51 AM     [Link to story]

Jaguars | Leonard Fournette out of practice - Jacksonville Jaguars RB Leonard Fournette (ankle) is out of practice Friday, Nov. 17. Fri Nov 17, 11:21 AM     [Link to story]

Footballguys view: Fournette could be a game-time decision. Even if he is active, he could be limited. TJ Yeldon moves into flex consideration on this news and he'll be an RB2 if Fournette is out. Yeldon appeared to move ahead of Chris Ivory last week. If Fournette is out, Ivory could be worth a flex play.

Jaguars | Leonard Fournette listed as limited - Jacksonville Jaguars RB Leonard Fournette (ankle) was limited during practice Thursday, Nov. 16. Thu Nov 16, 02:52 PM     [Link to story]

Footballguys view: They're likely just giving him a little rest. Start him this weekend as Cleveland is just too good a matchup to miss.

Bills | Tyrod Taylor likely to hit market - Buffalo Bills QB Tyrod Taylor is due a $6 million roster bonus on the third day of the 2018 league year with $1 million guaranteed. He's likely to become a free agent in the offseason. Wed Nov 15, 10:15 AM     [Link to story]

Footballguys view: There's no surprise here. Taylor was never really thought of as a long-term solution for new head coach Sean McDermott. He's likely to get some interest on the open market.

Bills | Tyrod Taylor benched - Buffalo Bills QB Tyrod Taylor has been benched for Week 11 against the Los Angeles Chargers. Wed Nov 15, 09:47 AM     [Link to story]

Footballguys view: The writing has been on the wall for Taylor, and this move isn't really that 'out of nowhere' as some would think. Taylor has likely played his last snap for the Bills as we expect him to hit the free agent market in 2018. He's due a $6 million roster bonus on the third day of the 2018 league year with $1 million guaranteed. That's a sign he's not going to be with the Bills next season.
