The playoffs have finally arrived and its time to make the final push for the championship. Now we must look at what players are going to get us through to the next round, and who might let us down.
Every year some players seem to appear out of nowhere and become fantasy studs. Sometimes it is the start of a great career and fantasy production, but also some have a huge year and then seem to disappear as fast as they appeared. There have been some nice surprises this year, but what can the future hold?

The season really needs to slow down! Six weeks have gone by and everyone is inching closer to the playoffs. These are probably the toughest part of your schedule with injuries and bye weeks on the rise. Capitalizing on waiver is so important. Always look for players who are on bye weeks since those won’t show at the top of many list.
In 2017, Leonard Fournette was drafted by the Jacksonville Jaguars in the 1st round as the 4th overall pick. The LSU back brought life to the Jacksonville Jaguars and gave them a shot in the Playoff’s. He also forced Blake Bortles to step up and had the best year in his career. Unfortunately, after controversial calls, the Jaguars lost to the Patriots in the AFC Championship game. But Fournette was still a fantasy relevant player.
Expectations for the Big Blue offense going into the season fluctuated. Optimistic Giants fans like yours truly saw a unit with potential whilst almost everyone else saw a unit that would overall be mediocre because of the quarterback situation. What was universally agreed on was that Evan Engram and Saquon Barkley would be forces in the game we all love, fantasy football, no matter the quarterback.
We are almost halfway through the fantasy regular season and there have been lots of surprises. There have been huge games, breakout type performances, and of course injuries. It is never too early to think ahead to playoff time and see where you could end up.
Minshew Mania has swept the league by storm. Gardner Minshew has already been compared as the next Tom Brady. While that may be a stretch, there is a lot to like about the rookie with his improving numbers and win’s week by week. But with a 2-2 record and trailing in 3 of 4 games, there may be some reason to call this a “over reaction.” I’m here to tell you that there may be no reason to hop off the Minshew train just yet, at least this week.
A quarter of the season is over with now and you should have an idea of what your team is gonna do. If you are looking to make a different or get quality bench spots well, this isn’t that week. This weeks waivers aren’t nothing to be excited about but they could help you win a few games so that’s all that really counts for.
The Kansas City Chiefs have one of the most potent and powerful offenses in the entire National Football League. Week in and Week out we know they will put up points and have great fantasy football finishes. When you own Chiefs wide receivers they will have their massive boom games, but they will also have extreme bust games. In this article we will discuss why you cannot and should not trust Chiefs wide receivers in fantasy football. This is not me saying drop them, or bench them every week, this is me saying if you’re looking for a consistent play or someone you can put in your flex with confidence, it is not Chiefs wide receivers.
We are almost a quarter of the way through the football season. It always seems like a long summer before football starts and then when it does the season seems to fly by as you closely watch your matchups, talk about your stellar performance last weekend, or wallowing in another loss. Every year there are break out performances and some nice surprises in fantasy that turn out to be gems that can make or break a season. Unfortunately, there is a flip side of that equation. There are players that get drafted that have a bad year or are put into bad situations that make them under perform your expectations from where you drafted them. There is still time to make changes to a roster to try and salvage a season, but is it time to try and make those changes?
Each week there are superstar players that will have superstar fantasy days but also there is mid level players to deep sleepers who explode.
Week 3 was full of fantasy points this week and now we are getting into the first quarter of the season. You could still be looking for that last piece to your team or looking for depth due to the many injuries of the season. Week 4 also starts bye weeks as the New York Jets & San Francisco 49ers are both off. You may need players to fill in a few spots so here are my week 4 waiver pick-ups.
Daniel Jones came out for the New York Giants and won a game nobody thought he would. He came out and won the game with out Golden Tate, and Saquon Barkley, who was injured in in Sunday’s game with a right ankle injury. We do not know the severity of the injury just yet, Saquon says he won’t be out long, but he is undergoing an MRI today.
Every week there always seems to be those couple of guys who just come out of no where and if they were in your lineup, then you thrived, and if they were on your bench, you wept. To win in fantasy football you have to make the right start/sit decisions. In this article we will go through 3 players I think are sneaky starts and could help you win in week 3 of the 2019 fantasy football season.
Heading into week 3 if you have a Chief running back you are probably tearing your hair out right now. With injuries to Damien Williams and LeSean McCoy a player that has been written off for dead in fantasy football for 2019, Darwin Thompson could be a really solid week 3 start.
