Good morning. Twitter unearthed an old Minnesota Vikings video that you’ll want to check out - read on.
It’s a busy world out there, knowledge of risers and fallers in the fantasy football community gets missed. I spent too much time reading this so I summarized it. Here’s a great article on dynasty risers and fallers in 5 points:
RISER: QB JALEN HURTS
FALLER: WR CHRIS GODWIN
RISER: RB JONATHAN TAYLOR
FALLER: DENVER BRONCOS PASS-CATCHERS
RISER: TE DAVID NJOKU
FALLER: WR JOHN BROWN
Could this be Tony Pollard Week?
Ezekiel Elliot is questionable for Week 15 against the 49ers after missing practice all week with a knee injury. Mike McCarthy expects Ezekiel Elliott to play. Ezekiel Elliott expects Ezekiel Elliott to play.
Elliott said Wednesday that he has to “work through the stiffness” every day and thinks the calf will probably remain an issue for the final weeks of the season. Zeke has 6 fumbles on the season and is being outplayed by Pollard every week. You’d think the Cowboys would rest the highest-paid RB in the final weeks of a lost season.
Pollard is worth adding in every league in the off-chance Zeke sits.
Good news for Browns pass-catchers
The Giants placed CB James Bradberry on the COVID-19 list earlier this week and ruled their slot-CB Darnay Holmes out yesterday. With minimal talent in the Giants secondary, Jarvis Landry, Rashard Higgins, and Baker Mayfield are all strong plays.
Bad news for Michael Thomas
Michael Thomas won't play in Week 15 against the Chiefs. Despite the return of Drew Brees, this is a shame for both fantasy and real-life, as we are all looking forward to this potential Super Bowl matchup.
Alvin Kamara was the direct beneficiary without Thomas earlier this year, averaging 9.7 targets and a team-high 27.1% target share from Weeks 2-8. Jared Cook is also a strong start in what should be a shootout.
Carr crash - Rip to Derek Carr’s season
NFL Network's Ian Rapoport said Derek Carr suffered a "significant" groin injury Thursday night and faces a two-week recovery timeline, placing his return in Week 17. Marcus Mariota should be grabbed in all superflex leagues; downgrade all Raiders pass-catchers not named Darren Waller.
The best video of the day
The hospital report - who’s in and who’s out
