What if I told you, that an NFL quarterback threw for 5,109 yards and added 33 touchdown passes. What if I also told you, that he threw the ball to the opposing team’s 30 times. What if I told you, that he would be replaced by the greatest of all time, Tom Brady.
Well, it did not take long for the inevitable to happen. P.J. Walker, an XFL future Hall-of-Famer no doubt, has been signed by the NFL’s Carolina Panthers. The XFL’s MVP led the league Champion Houston Roughnecks to a perfect 5-0 start before the inaugural season was cut short by the COVID-19 virus. That didn’t stop the Panthers’ front office from signing the 25-year-old to pair him up with his former Temple coach in Matt Rhule.
As we described in more detail in Part 1, we are not so much concerned about scheme fit in this scenario, but rather we are playing fantasy matchmaker with the running backs. Let’s now dive in on the rest of the top free agent running backs and where we think they’d best thrive for fantasy owners!
Saquon Barkley had a record-setting 2018 season, including becoming just the third rookie in history to eclipse 2000 yards from scrimmage. These historic performances had Giants fans and many others looking forward to what Barkley may pose in the 2019 campaign. So how did Barkley truly do this past season? Let’s find out!
After a 0-5 start, this season the Redskins and Jay Gruden parted ways. This was no surprise after Gruden even talked about having to win the division to keep his role with the team. The Redskins have struggled to perform up to expectations under Gruden and the talent that was on their roster never seemed to explode into a great success. The Redskins have also relieved Bruce Allen their president from his current role. These are both signs that the Redskins are trying to change the current trend. Over the last half of the season, the Redskins started to look like an improved team and that some of their young talents were ready to impress. Looking into 2020 what could these changes mean for the organization and the fantasy value of the players there?
The Green Bay Packers clinched a playoff spot last week after their win against Chicago. Now they travel to Minneapolis to take on the Minnesota Vikings in a crucial divisional matchup. This is the biggest game of season for each team. If the Packers win they lock up the NFC North Division. The Vikings are undefeated at home this season (6-0). They feed off the energy from the home crowd and Kirk Cousins has been playing at the highest level in his career.
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.
Last Sunday, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers (4-7) clinched a win over the Atlanta Falcons (3-8). Winston completed 18/28 throws for 313 yards and three touchdowns; one to Ronald Jones II and two to Chris Godwin.

The 49ers and Patriots have been playing at an elite level this year and are two of the best defenses in fantasy, but not everyone can have an elite defense on their team. Heading into the playoffs having a good DST could be the difference in making it past your opponent. As teams continue to fight for playoff contention there have been some DST that are coming on strong, and the schedule for some of the better DST’s in the first have of the year are getting tougher as the season goes on. So, who should you pick up to get you over the top in the playoffs?
The Green Bay Packers (8-2) take on the San Francisco 49ers (9-1) at Levi’s Stadium. In this pivotal Prime Time Week 12 matchup, the Packers will need to win this game in order to have a chance at acquiring the Number 1 seed in the NFC. I have a gut feeling that George Kittle will be on the field for the 49ers as this is one of the most important games of the season thus far.

This week we’ll take a look at some of the players who were supposed to be big money makers, but ended up falling very flat of expectations. Here’s one player at every fantasy position that was heavily disappointing. (NOTE: Players who ended up on IR like Ben Roethlisberger are not considered for this list.)
The Fantasy playoffs are right around the corner. Whether you are a top seed and already have a spot locked up or you must fight for a spot its time to look ahead and see what you can do to your roster to optimize it to bring home the prize.
The FI fighter jet, Scary Terry, what ever you want to call him was one of our favorite early season breakouts but recently his performance has been awful and I think it might be time to drop him or at the very least stop putting him in your lineup.
Emmanuel Sanders is still one of the leagues top wide receivers and since joining the San Francisco 49ers he has been nothing but great for your fantasy football team. The question about Sanders will be can he finish the season as a top 12 wide receiver.
