Fantasy Football Midterm Grades: Separating stars from flops in NFC
Just how useful has each franchise been for fantasy football managers? I’m sure grades will fluctuate significantly between today and the final exams. In some cases, mediocre teams are listed before legitimate playoff contenders. That’s the life we navigate, the gap between real football and fake football.
Fantasy Football Week 11 Waiver Wire: Injuries make Jameis Winston, Salvon Ahmed, Kalen Ballage priorities
Usually we start this column talking about the injured running backs, and there have been many of them this season. But thankfully Week 10 spared us with that position from anything major. This time, it was the quarterbacks who suffered the most.
Fantasy start or sit Week 11: Derrick Henry, Jonnu Smith, A.J. Brown
The Tennessee Titans are heading to Baltimore on Sunday for a contest in which the Ravens will avenge the “death” of former safety Earl Thomas. No, in all seriousness, though, the Ravens are foaming at the mouth to get a piece of the Titans after being embarrassed in the Divisional Round of the playoffs last season. Which begs the question: who is safe to start against the league’s eight-best defense in yards allowed?
Eagles News: Travis Fulgham is a “must-start” against the Giants
Fulgham has been super consistent since breaking into the Eagles’ lineup in Week 3, averaging 19.3 points per game and no fewer than 12 points over that period.

FantasyPros Over/Under Challenge Advice: Week 10
Considering Pittsburgh’s collective Week 9 dud inside Jerry’s World against the junior varsity Dallas Cowboys, one should expect a more complete game back home against a lowly divisional opponent. Despite having only a single “blow up” game where he exceeded 20 fantasy points, Conner has been one of the most consistent options at the most volatile position in fantasy. Having recorded 12.6 or more fantasy points in six of his eight games, this feels like a huge bounce-back opportunity for Conner and the Steelers’ running game. Going up against a Bengals defense that ranks 29th against the run and just surrendered 218 ground yards to Tennessee in their last game, my money’s on Conner and the over in this one.
Fantasy Football Week 11 Drop Candidates: Five cuts to make for waiver wire upside
As we move closer to the fantasy playoffs, the choice to drop or hang onto a player becomes increasingly more difficult. However, getting rid of underperforming guys is essential to achieving maximum roster points each and every week, and now is not the time to keep someone for nostalgia purposes or the thought that their breakout is coming after 10 weeks of mediocrity. These moves may not be for everyone as each roster is different and so are your records and point totals. However, I am here to help you rip off that proverbial band-aid en route to deciding who’s no longer serving your fantasy team the way fresh blood has the potential to.
