Week 8 Daily Fantasy Football Tight End Report

Rob Gronkowski ($5900): best matchup without salary implications

The Gronk babying is just about over.  Last week Rob was on the field for 55 of 60 plays run by the Patriots, and he has 30 targets in the last 3 games with 18 catches for 262 yards.  He has 4 TD’s on the year with one 100 yard receiving games, and The Bears have allowed over 80 yards to the TE position 4 times this year with 3 TD’s.  Gronk is an impact player who is ready to pop. Chicago’s CB’s have held WR’s to short TD’s (7), which will work in Gronkowski’s favor/Almost a must for me

Week 8 Daily Fantasy Football Wide Receiver Report

Antonio Brown ($8000): solid play based on matchup not salary

Brown continues to get elite targets (10 or more in 6 straight games), and he is on a pace for 114 catches for 1,643 yards with 11 TD’s).  Antonio hasn’t scored a TD in his last 3 games, but he did throw a TD pass last week to help his value. On the year, Brown is averaging 112 receiving yards per game at home. The Colts have the best WR defense in the league (24.70 FPPG), but their success is somewhat masked by their great ball control offense. Indy has only allowed one WR TD in their last week.  CB Vontae Davis is the #1 rated CB in pass coverage in the league (14/32 for 174 yards and NO TD’s.  The Steelers will need to throw, and Brown can beat the best CB’s in the game.In play.

Week 8 Daily Fantasy Football RB Report

Matt Forte ($8800): solid play based on matchup not salary

Forte has been the top scoring RB in 3 straight games (432 combined yards with 28 catches and 5 TD’s).  Matt has huge value in PPR league with rising score ability. The Patriots have struggled against the RB position in 3 of their 7 games this year, plus they have lost two defenders over the last couple of weeks (Chandler Jones and Jerod Mayo).  New England allowed 210, 245, and 267 combined rushing yards in their bad games, and the Pats have also allowed 4 passing TD’s to RB’s. We expect another 20+ point game.

Week 8 Daily Fantasy Football QB Report

Andrew Luck ($8800): solid play based on matchup not salary

NFL: Preseason-Kansas City Chiefs at New Orleans SaintsLuck has 5 straight 300 passing games with 5 games with 3 TD’s or more.  The Colts biggest asset over the last 6 games has been their ability to control the clock (38.5 minutes of offense per game), and they have averaged 23 more snaps per game than their opponents during this stretch.  The Steelers defense has had a short pass rush in their last 4 games (1 sack per game), which will give Andrew plenty of time to make winning decisions.  Pittsburgh is 3rd in the league in QB defense, but this is the first time they will face a quality offense and QB, but Luck will most likely be without Wayne and Richardson is banged up.  Either way, Indy has plenty of fire power to deliver impact points. In play.

Julius Thomas ($6900): solid play based on matchup not salary

Thomas is by far Manning’s best goal line option (9 TD’s), and he has scored a TD in every game this season with 3 games with 2 or more TD’s.  His targets (30 – 6 per game) remain at the 2nd tier level with only one game with more than 70 yards receiving. San Francisco has allowed 2 TD’s to the TE with one team gaining more than 50 yards from the position. He has elite TD production in a great offense.

Rodgers should pick apart this defense.

Week 7 Daily Fantasy Football Running Back Report

DeMarco Murray ($9600): best matchup without salary implications

Murray has been machine-like over the first 6 weeks of the year (6 TD’s and six 100 yard rushing games), and he’s scored 25+ points in PPR leagues in every week this season.  He is on a pace for 2,507 yards on 480 touches – Just an insane pace.  Last year DeMarco had 251 combined yards in 2 games against the Giants, and New York has allowed a rushing TD in every game this season (7 total), plus they allowed 665 combined yards to the RB position over the last 3 weeks. All signs point to an elite matchup.

scoutPRO #1 for Week 6 Fantasy Football Accuracy

NFL: Preseason-Baltimore Ravens at Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Ever wonder how scoutPRO stacks up against other pros in accuracy contests? Well last week we were #1! Each week throughout the season, Fantasy Pros ranks 133 experts based on the accuracy of their projections, and scoutPRO had 63.1% accuracy for week 6 (aka that’s really good!)  Our wide receiver advice was particularly accurate. We hit the nail on the head with TY Hilton, projecting him as a top 5 performing wide receiver. Other big hits were Torrey Smith, Andre Holmes and DeSean Jackson.  We also had better predictions than most other experts on Joe Flacco who put up 5 TDs.

For more information on the Fantasy Pros contest and how we stack up each week, check out their rankings here.

Week 7 Daily Fantasy Football Quarterback Report

Andrew Luck ($9700): neutral

Luck has scored 30+ points in 4 of his 6 starts and has passed for 300+ yards and 3 TD’s or more in 5 games.  Last year, Andrew passed for 326 yards and 4 TD’s against Cincinnati. He is on  a pace for 5,299 yards with 51 combined TD’s.  The Bengals struggled badly last week with the legs of Cam Newton (107 yards and  TD), but they have only allowed one 300 yard passer this season with no QB throwing for more than 2 TD’s.  Luck has been elite and has an edge just about every week so he is tough to overlook in any week. Possible start.

Week 6 Daily Fantasy Football Tight End Report

Julius Thomas ($6700): best matchup without salary implications

Thomas continues to be a TD machine (7) in the Broncos offense and has scored in every game this season/Overall, he is averaging only 6 targets per game, which really isn’t an elite opportunity for a TE.  His ability to score TD’s is the key for his success while he does have higher upside with more favorable coverage.  The Jets haven’t allowed any huge receiving yards or catches to the TE position in any game this year, but they have allowed 5 TD’s to TE’s in the last 3 weeks.  With so many other strong options in the receiving game, New York really doesn’t have an answer for Thomas, and the TD parade should continue this week with a higher volume of looks.
