NFL Fantasy Football 2021 The players to look for to strengthen your team in Fantasy Football
Lto NFL week 11 bring a breather for Fantasy teams as there are only two teams (Broncos and Rams) on bye week, leaving only casualties from players like Darrell Henderson, Matt Stafford, Cooper Kupp, Melvin Gordon, Jerry Jeudy and little else .
But what there is is injured, especially of the runners. Aaron Jones would lose a couple of games, the situation in Tennessee continues to flow two games after the start of life without Derrick Henry,Alvin kamara missed a game and the Pats play on Thursday so Damien Harris might not come back, not to mention that one of the best offenses in the league lost to Robert Woods.
Entering the final stretch of the seasons in the virtual grid, it is even more imperative to win, so you have to look for improvements that give you that victory that can be life or death a month from the end of the Fantasy calendar.
As always, the maximum goal of winning this week, so looking for players who are without a team in at least 50% of the leagues in NFL.com heading into week 10.
AJ Dillon (RB GB, 44.7%): Aaron Jones’ injury could put him out for several weeks. Dillon took the opportunity against Seattle with 128 total yards and 26.8 PPR points. It will be the most wanted this week.
Mark Ingram (RB NO, 59.3%): if Alvin Kamara loses more time, he has already shown that he can take the position after his 20.8 points against the Titans.
Rhamondre Stevenson (RB NE, 31.8%): Damien Harris did not go off concussion protocol and they play on Thursday. Rookie Stevenson was the leading runner with 55% of the snaps (Bolden had 27%, Taylor 19%) and is RB2 of the week with 27.4 points. If Harris goes low again, he has an attractive matchup against the Falcons.
D’Onta Foreman (RB TEN, 2.6%): Tennessee’s backfield is a gamble, but Foreman has been the best on the ground for two weeks, was the leader in snaps (36% vs 33% of Peterson and 26% of McNichols) and is not a zero left like All Day in the passing game (2 receptions, 48 yards). The running back you want from Tennessee is the one that is free in almost every league.
Jordan Howard (RB PHI, 28.0%): for the first time he was the snaps leader of the team. He has board hands because he doesn’t catch passes, but he’s been the most involved running back for a couple of weeks (11-83 in Denver). The bad news: It will depend on reaching the end zone against the best defense in the liag, the Saints. Boston Scott (14.9%) It might be another somewhat more desperate option … but he has 9.9 or more PPR points in three of Philly’s last four games and is not a zero left in passing play, which they might need more against the Saints. It is RB23 last month.
Wayne Gallman (RB ATL, 0.1%): Cordarrelle Patterson was injured, and with a game on Thursday, it looks difficult for him to play. Mike Davis is still there, but he is being one of the disappointments of the year. And even though he was garbage time below 30, Gallman ran acceptably well (15-55), but there are 35% snaps or similar that Davis is always on the bench and could give Gallman a hole.
As every week, we also refer to the substitutes that would be worth taking to make the ‘advance purchases’, backup for your star or in case there is any more injury. The strategy is to think about which player, if he becomes a starter on your team, could be on your starting roster in the Fantasy Playoffs. Nyheim hines (IND, 25.1%), Larry rountree (ALC, 0.1%), Chuba Hubbard (CAR, 50.8%), Jeff Wilson (SF, 5.2%), Carlos Hyde (JAX, 3.7%), Sony michel (LAR, 10.5%), Alexander mattison (MINIMUM, 27.6%), Jaret patterson (WFT, 0.1%), Salvon ahmed (MIA, 0.4%), Ronald Jones (TB, 25.7%), Khalil herbert (CHI, 28.9%), Devontae booker (NYG, 56.0%), Samaje Perine (CIN, 0.5%).
From Jefferson (WR LAR, 29.0%): We had been saying it for several weeks. I hope you have made advance purchases, because it will be difficult now that the Robert Woods crusader is broken. Jefferson will raise his bonuses a lot, even if Odell Beckham Jr. arrived. The second year WR has 4 games of at least 10 points in the first 9 and, even if he does not play in week 11, he is a receiver that can beat your league.
Bateman Spending (WR BAL, 10.7%): three games in a row with double digits of points and in none was it to reach the diagonals, which is still not released. After the ‘mini bye’ to play on Thursday, his participation should increase and it was already considerable: more than 50% snaps and at least 6 targets each game he has played since his debut in week 6.
Michael Gallup (WR DAL, 56.5%): He played for the first time since Week 1 and had three receptions (on five targets) for 42 yards. He may have come back at the exact moment, because Cee Dee Lamb was injured. If it is low, Gallup becomes an excellent option. For now, at KC, it could be a decent Flex.
Elijah Moore (WR NYJ, 17.9%): four straight games with double-digit points … but all without QB’s Zach Wilson, who is shaping up to return.
Marcus Johnson (WR TEN, 0.0%): a player that literally no one has on his team, but with Julio Jones on IR, he will have opportunities. On Sunday he already took advantage of them, catching 5 of 6 passes for 100 yards on his way to be the WR14 of week 10. He has two of the last three games with at least 60% of snaps played and has three games of five targets, all in the absence of July. Tannehill trusts him and has less complicated duels because of the attention AJ Brown gets. Against Houston it could be a Flex.
Brandon Aiyuk (WR SF, 56.8%): consecutive double-digit matches prior to Monday Night. This production is not negligible to cover a gap of a week. Jacksonville and the worst air defense the rival … better than better
Bryan Edwards (WR LV, 2.6%): only Zay Jones had the most plays among Raiders receivers and Edwards had the most yards at 3-88-1. Like Ruggs before him, he relies on catching long passes, because he doesn’t have a lot of volume. If you want a high risk, high potential option … and with options to gain volume in the final stretch of the season.
Tua Tagovailoa (QB MIA, 33.5%): nothing bad relief work after Brissett’s injury and now he goes against the Jets, one of the worst teams in the league. In his four games that he started and finished, he always exceeded 15 points.
Justin Fields (QB CHI, 24.9%): Chicago’s QB is coming off his two best games courtesy of the ground production. 25.3 points and 18.14 against the Niners and Steelers, two solid defenses. Baltimore is on its schedule after the bye, which allows a lot of big plays. He can continue his upward trend against a team that allows almost 19 points in Fantasy to the rival QB.
Trey Lance (QB SF, 16.1%): without seeing the Monday night, but we are going to recycle last week … San Francisco is on the edge of the precipice, with a mark of 3-5 (pending Monday). Garoppolo isn’t their QB as early as 2022 and if the season is lost, they can emulate 2020 Philly and seat the veteran for the rookie. Lance, like Hurts, has the potential of his terrestrial production: he ended up with 20.38 points against Seattle in a relief half and with 14.58 against Arizona in its only start, in which he did not achieve a TD and threw an interception; Add even TDs and you have 20 points. It’s a move that could win you the league if you don’t have a top QB this year … or as an insurance policy from Kyler or some other injury.
Cam Newton (QB CAR, 16.2%): Matt Rhule wants him to be their starting QB. His potential for scoring ground TDs gives him a high floor … although let’s not forget that in 2020, with the Pats, he had the same number of games under 13 points (6) as over 19. But again: in On Fantasy, QBs’ rushing yards are worth more and make a bad passer an acceptable player.
Daniel Jones (QB NYG, 18.9%): In cases of extreme (VERY EXTREME) need: Jones goes to Tampa, where the Bucs have excelled and that translates into more passes to play at a disadvantage against a perimeter and a very injured defense. There is always a risk of deliveries with Danny Dimes …but he also has three games of 20+ points and three more of at least 16. It might not be the worst option.
Dan Arnold (TE JAX, 10.5%): a regular in this space. It produces and nobody pays attention to it. 13.7 points, his third game in a row with double digits. And one day he will see the end zone, because he still has zero touchdowns this year. TE6 in Fantasy last month … and he hasn’t scored a single touchdown. Potential.
Logan Thomas (TE WFT, 58.2%): It looked like he was coming back on Sunday, but he didn’t. Now his substitute, Ricky Seals-Jones, was injured, so he could hurry and now he can play against Carolina. In the first three weeks prior to his injury, he had at least 9.5 PPR points and may have been thrown away by many since then.
CJ Uzomah (TE CIN, 32.4%): only against bad defenders against tight ends. This week comes Raiders, the second worst. For a week’s rent, it’s not bad at all.
Hunter Henry (TE NE, 60.6%): gave his best game in the absence of Jonnu Smith. He has six 9.9-point games in the last seven, being dependent on touchdowns (anti Dan Arnold, if you like), but he is definitely the target of choice in the red zone and against the Falcons is another good opportunity.
One of my favorite tactics is play defensive rotation against bad league teams. Jaguars and Jets they are being the worst teams in the league. Jeans They looked terrible even with the return of Tyrod Taylor, Lions and giants they have QB delivery machines, Big ben is in total decline, Justin Fields is caught at an alarming rate since his time in the NCAA, Sam darnold He is regressing to his Jets times and may not play due to shock. There are options to exploit, without mention games against substitute quarterbacks or bad weather.
Brown (27.0%): Jared Goff in bad weather, perhaps less motivated and even disappointed by the draw at Pittsburgh. Not to mention more.
Titans (39.6%): They host Houston and are the sixth-best defense in Fantasy this season, with mostly big sack potential.
Dolphins (37.6%): They travel to Jersey to play the Jets, the worst team against Fantasy defenses, and they have shone now that they have recovered the health of their corners, as Lamar can attest.
49ers (45.2%): only the Jets and Texans allow more points on average to Fantasy defenses than Jacksonville. Of course, a problem: if they lose on Monday … they could have given up on the season. It is an option for desperate cases.
Chargers (5.3%): They are an absolute drain on the ground, but they go against the Steelers, maybe Mason Rudolph, maybe Big Ben barely trained. Detroit, still with overtime, had 7 points against Pittsburgh last week. The Steelers are a bad offense that allows sacks and deliveries at an average rate. You add a few points game to it and you have an option to consider this week.
Seahawks (14.9%): if Kyler doesn’t play around again … and with Arizona’s bye week on the horizon, maybe they’ll save it.
