Week 8 Streamers

If you invested heavily in players that suit up for the Chiefs or Chargers, you may want to pay close attention this week. Streaming replacement players is more important than ever, as we have already reached Week 8. You may be in the middle of a playoff push as well and no longer can afford another loss. Remember, we always provide the best players to stream at quarterback, tight end, and D/ST. Each streaming option will have ownership under 60%, according to ESPN. Below, you will find two streamers per position and a “deep stream” option (15% or lower). 

State of FFPC: Dynasty Landscape & Redraft Tourneys (midseason edition)

Nevertheless, right now is a great time to look at standings and to think about who is a pretender, who is a contender and where are there mutual needs that might be met in a trade. 2023 picks are very difficult to pry away from people due to the expected high quality of that class, but now is the best time to try and grab them.

NFL Player Props: Thursday Night Football Preview

Week 4 begins with a scintillating matchup between two AFC contenders as the Dolphins (3-0) travel to the Bengals (1-2) home turf to duke it out on Thursday Night Football. The Dolphins enter the contest as surprising underdogs after a dramatic undefeated start to the 2022 season, which saw the AFC East front runners dismantle the Ravens and the Bills in back-to-back games. Vegas lines are sharp to the injury reports as star quarterback Tua Tagovailoa is reportedly a game-time decision with head/neck/back injuries.

Redraft Rankings Spotlight: WRs

Rankings are fun, but they don’t always tell the whole story. In this series, I’m taking a closer look at my 2022 redraft rankings, providing context for a handful of players that I have ranked well above or below ADP consensus. Today I’ll be diving into the WR position.

He accumulated 136 receptions for 2,117 yards and 14 touchdowns in those three seasons in 32 games played.

Fantasy Stock Up, Stock Down: Miami Dolphins

Welcome back to the “Fantasy Stock Up, Stock Down” series (off-season edition). Off-season madness has begun, Free Agency has started, and the NFL Draft is approaching. Meanwhile, we as Dynasty Managers need to be preparing as well. Who are we going to target in Rookie Drafts? Who are we going to go out and trade for? Who are we willing to give up in return? Will you go all in this season to bring home a championship? Or should you go young and prepare for the future? There’s so much to think about before September. The “off-season edition” of this series is an early look at whose stock is up and whose stock is down as we look at free agency moves and approach draft season. We will break down each NFL team one by one. Today is all about the Miami Dolphins.

Dumpster Diving: Lynn Bowden

“Dumpster Diving” is a new series at Dynasty Football Factory that will help you find late-round hidden gems. These players are far from perfect but they are “free” and who doesn’t love free stuff? If something breaks right these players can have a measurable impact on your team(s) and you’ll be the GM with them stashed on your bench. If not, you cut bait and move on. You want assets on your team that will appreciate in value and that is the goal with this series.  All of these players will be rostered in less than 50% of Sleeper leagues.

Six Redraft Shares to Watch After Week 11

Unless we’re analyzing workhorse running backs or alpha wide receivers, a player’s usage can fluctuate from week to week. Some will shine and some will ruin your week. Remember, targets and opportunities are earned. After two weeks of disappearing, I will be making a special edition. In this series, I will provide target shares, rushing attempt shares, and snap shares of EIGHT players (or group of players) on this past three weeks to help you understand the value of each of them and decide whether to start ‘em, roster ‘em, or trade ‘em.

Week 12 Streamers

In most leagues, the postseason starts in either Week 15 or Week 16. That means we only have a few weeks left of the regular season. Don’t panic, but if you are on the outside looking in, you are running out of time! Streaming options are more important than ever as the Chiefs and Cardinals (two teams with a plethora of offensive talent) enter their Week 12 bye week. Like always, we will provide the best weekly options to stream at quarterback, tight end, and D/ST. Keep in mind, each streaming option will be below 50% owned, according to ESPN leagues.

Week 11 Streamers

Can you believe it’s already Week 11!?! Some of you have already locked in a playoff spot, and others of you are working hard to earn one of those final spots into the dance. In previous weeks, this series had been full of streaming options that weren’t super reliable. And of course, these players below aren’t “guarantees,” but every single one of them is easy to stream based on their Week 11 matchup. Even the “deep stream” option will start in a ton of leagues this week. Like always, we will provide the best weekly options to stream at quarterback, tight end, and D/ST. Keep in mind, each streaming option will be below 50% owned, according to ESPN leagues.

Redraft Waiver Wire Grind: Week 10

It was announced today that Sam Darnold is likely to miss a few weeks with a fractured scapula. This means that P.J. Walker is going to be Carolina’s starter for the foreseeable future. We know just how valuable the quarterback position is in non-one quarterback leagues due to it being the highest ceiling and floor position. When one of the NFL’s 32 quarterbacks is on the free market it’s a must-add. To be realistic, P.J. Walker isn’t someone we are ecstatic about. In 2020 he had 56 pass attempts, good for a 57.0 PFF passing grade. Which is quite bad. For reference, that would put him 31/35 amongst all QBs in 2020. He had five total rush attempts last year. I would be treating P.J. Walker on the FAAB market like a Geno Smith-light.

Moves to Make in a Dynasty Contender

At this point during the season in dynasty leagues, it should be apparent to fantasy managers whether or not your team is a contender or if you should be positioning yourself for next season.

I’ll be assessing a few moves you can make right now on players who could be cheap, in order to push you into the playoffs and through the rest of the season comfortably.

Raiding the IDP Waiver Wire: Week 9

“Raiding the IDP Waiver Wire” is written for fantasy football gamers in leagues that require a full complement of 11 defensive starters in leagues of 12 to 16 teams. Recommendations rely on scoring settings from FantasyPros.com, even though their value for passes defensed is low. We’ll look for options at both conventional and true defensive positions as they arise. Players qualifying for this column are those rostered in no more than a third of IDP leagues on MyFantasyLeague.com (MFL). These recommendations further assume you, the manager, have finite roster space with challenging cut decisions to add new names.
