WEEK 1 FANTASY DO'S AND DONT'S

PLAY THAT MAN

CARSON WENTZ

Week 1 vs Redskins

Wentz  hopes to restore his 2017 form where was on his way to becoming league MVP prior to the season ending knee injury.  The Redskins only hope of slowing down the Eagles is if they can dominate T.O.P. utilizing the Peterson/Guice duo.  This one could get crazy with Wentz having a full arsenal of weapons at his disposal behind an elite line that has the potential to neutralize Ryan Kerrigan and Jonathan Allen which should give him ample time to locate mismatches all over the field.  The secondary is simply not good enough and they have no answer for Zach Ertz on the seam route.


ALVIN KAMARA

Week 1 vs Texans

The Texans defense will have to move on from Jadeveon Clowney but truthfully have no authentic threat up front besides J.J. Watt.  The Saints boast a top tier offensive line that should create large holes for Kamara on the ground while giving Drew Brees time to dissect the defense.  Kamara is a matchup nightmare on swing passes and screens against a Houston unit who lacks speed.

SIT THEIR ASS DOWN

SAM DARNOLD

Week 1 vs Bill's

The second year QB has a difficult matchup with divisional foe Buffalo who ranked #2 in team defense last season.  The Bills have an aggressive pass rush led by Jerry Hughes with a solid secondary.  Tre'Davious White has emerged as a top flight cover guy who will be attached to Darnold's best receiver Robby Anderson.  Le'Veon Bell could have a slow adaptation to the offense and Chris Herndon is serving a suspension which leaves only questionable options versus a well rounded unit.

Corey Davis

Week 1 vs Browns

First of all, the Titans have a rough QB situation that must prove itself for me to trust any receiver on that roster.  The Browns have Denzel Ward and rookie Greedy William's who have the potential to form an elite cb combo to go with a defense that added talent at every segment.  Davis will likely be the primary option this year but they will rely on Derrick Henry and they will probably be forced to throw underneath to options such as Dion Lewis and newly acquired Adam Humphries.

FANTASY TAKES

YEAR 2 BUY LOW OPTIONS

 Most fantasy players simply recall the positive outcomes from the previous season while writing off rookies who missed expectations. Last season we witnessed an incredible rookie RB class highlighted by Saquon Barkley and there are many others some of which will make their impression in their sophomore season.  Receivers and Tight End production was somewhat soft for the rookie group but we will throw a few options your way of who you may wish to target that most of your league has already written off.


COURTLAND SUTTON

The 6 ft 4 SMU product had a decent rookie season with over 700 yards receiving but was overshadowed in Denver by Philip Lindsey. Although most fans will not go crazy for Joe Flacco, who takes over for Case Keenum,  he is a definitive upgrade who possesses a valid deep ball where Sutton could thrive. Having Emmanuel Sanders healthy will create more favorable field space for him as well.


RONALD JONES

Most people in Tampa were wondering what the hell just happened last season as Ronald Jones was virtually nonexistent with only 23 rush attempts. Jones is an outstanding athlete but because of selective media coverage paired with Dirk Coetter's inept management, we were taught to think the worst here. However, a fresh start in a talented offense under Bruce Arians could make a huge difference. The competition is beatable while Arians has publicly voiced his excitement in regards to Jones.


DERRIUS GUICE

It was a difficult 2018 for Guice who tore his ACL prior to the season which resulted in a series of setbacks. Guice was a beast at LSU and projects as a major piece of the Redskins offense along with Dwayne Haskins for years to come. He will likely maintain a conservative workload early on but could be unleashed by midseason if his knee holds up which could translate well for a unit that is not expected to strike fear with their passing game. A talented between the tackles back behind a physically imposing line seems like a good pairing.


MIKE GESICKI

The Dolphins offense is wide open in terms of opportunity with a new coaching staff and new starting QB with either Ryan Fitzpatrick or Josh Rosen. The skill position talent is mediocre at best while Gesicki stands out with his superb measurables at 6 ft 6 and 4.54 speed.  He must improve in his run blocking along with his hands as a pass catcher. He could be a nice middle of the field option for the new QB who has after the catch yardage potential with his speed.
