NFL Fantasy Football
Week 2 was ugly in the early slate with low-scoring games and QB injuries across the board. Things picked up through the afternoon but the typical surprises that make fantasy football so aggravating at times resurfaced. Touchdown vultures, mid-game injuries, and big-name duds were all present. Nevertheless, we move on to another week to taste the thrill of victory and the agony of defeat.
It only took one week for some fantasy football plans to be blown up by injuries and lack of production.
As is the case every year, the waiver wire is a popular place after Week 1 for fantasy players to find gems they missed out on in the draft process.
Both Yates and Berry believe Williams is a great value pick in fantasy. While neither thinks Williams will have a bell cow role in Detroit, Yates goes on to say that “(Williams) has a legitimate flex ability in a deeper league, and obviously, if anything were to happen to Swift, (Williams) would be a top-12 running back.” Stephania agrees and says she “really loves” Jamaal Williams. The entire crew thinks he’s a great value pick for where he can be drafted.
In 2020, Todd Gurley rushed for an underwhelming 678 yards on 195 attempts (3.5 yards per carry) but did have nine touchdowns. Atlanta chose not to bring Gurley back, instead signing free agent Mike Davis to be the team’s starter in 2021.
Jakobi Meyers isn’t a household name, quite yet.
The third-year undrafted receiver began making noise his rookie year, but he really started lighting the field up in 2020. Meyers was the New England Patriots’ leading receiver with 59 receptions for 729 yards. He appeared in all 32 games during the first two seasons and he’s been available in the Patriots’ first two preseason games this year.
Pro Football Focus discusses the Giants offense and who may be values, sleepers, and busts heading into fantasy football season.
There were numerous reasons the Philadelphia Eagles offense underperformed in 2020: early struggles at quarterback, a shallow receiving corps and injuries to multiple key players. But things should be better for the team during the 2021 season.
Last year, the Eagles ranked 25th in the NFL with 334.6 total yards per game. It is hoped that number will go up during the upcoming season, and there could be more players on Philadelphia’s roster who post impressive numbers of their own, making them worthy of consideration for fantasy football.
The Eagles have a lot of offensive potential with the unit experiencing some turnover and an influx of young talent. Several of these players you’re going to want on your fantasy rosters this season.
Here’s a look at the top Philadelphia players to target in fantasy football to begin 2021.
There’s no hotter commodity in a fantasy football draft than a running back sleeper. Everyone wants to round out their picks with two or three steals (often rookies) who will emerge at some point this year and take over. Fortunately, there’s no shortage of breakout candidates considering how common injuries are at this position. When you add in the potential for COVID-related absences again in 2021, you can expect a good chunk of the league to start multiple RBs at various points this season. Any backup can have value if they get 15-plus touches per game, so you need to know more than just the top-75 RB rankings your backs’ immediate handcuffs — you damn near need to know every teams’ entire depth chart.
Mock drafts are useful for trying new things. It’s why we encourage you to do as many as possible before your actual Draft Day. You get to experiment with different strategies and figure out what works best for you in building your Fantasy team.
