  • Week 4 Fantasy Over/Under: Kevin White a possible DFS delight

    Brad Evans at Roto Arcade 3 hrs ago

    Fantasy is a speculative game. Predict the future, and you look like a genius. Don’t, and you’re painfully human. Gazing into the crystal ball, here’s our view on six intriguing over/unders for Week 4.

    Donning the DFS cap, what commodity is terribly UNDERVALUED in Week 4?

    Liz – STEVE SMITH SR ($16). Leading the Ravens’ receiving corps in targets since Week 1, Smith put up fantasy WR2 numbers last Sunday, catching eight-of-11 balls for 87 yards. Against all odds, Smith has proven to be a dominant piece of this offense. He has another plus matchup in Week 4 vs. a Raiders squad that has allowed the most fantasy points to the position.

    Scott  – DWAYNE WASHINGTON ($10) managed a 10-38 line at Green Bay last week, which needs to be considered in the proper prism; the Packers parcel a mere 1.8 YPC on the year. The Bears have given up an ordinary 4.0 YPC and five rushing touchdowns; there’s an excellent chance Washington adds to those totals, and you’re getting in at the minimum price. Other potential booms: JORDAN HOWARD ($14), ZACH MILLER ($16), TYRELL WILLIAMS ($19).

    Conversely, what DFS option is the most OVERVALUED in Week 4?

  • Week 3 Fantasy Takeaways: Hill, Sanders, DeMarco well on way to repairing reputations

    Brad Evans at Roto Arcade 4 days ago

    1. Welcome back to fantasy relevance, Jeremy Hill. After an unmemorable start to his season (20-53-1), Cincy’s caged kitty broke loose Sunday against, of all opponents, Von Miller and the Denver Broncos. Exhibiting a fiery hand out of the gate, he galloped his way to 97 rushing yards and two touchdowns, undeniably his finest performance of the season.

    Hill, despite scoring double-digit touchdowns, was a massive disappointment last season. He was largely ineffective, unassertive and generally vanilla, a rusher completely outplayed by teammate Gio Bernard. Fantasy investors were bitter to say the least.

    The third-year back entered the season determined to right last year’s wrongs. Throughout training camp and the preseason he resembled the intimidating, between-the-tackles battering ram of 2014. His admirable 2.4 YAC Weeks 1-2 offered additional encouragement. Sunday’s effort versus Denver confirmed the resurgence.

    Bernard will obviously remain highly involved and game flow is critical, but cracking the RB top-15 regularly could be a common occurrence for Hill near-term.

    Bank on it.

    Murray’s mashing side is back. It’s time to believe in him as an every-week starter.

  • Week 3 Fantasy Over/Under: Christine Michael to turn tidy profit

    Brad Evans at Roto Arcade 7 days ago

    Fantasy is a speculative game. Predict the future, and you look like a genius. Don’t, and you’re painfully human. Gazing into the crystal ball, here’s our view on six intriguing over/unders for Week 3.

    [Play our $200K Baller | Free Yahoo Cup entry | Earn rewards points playing Daily]

    Donning the DFS cap, what commodity is terribly UNDERVALUED in Week 3?

    Dalton   – MELVIN GORDON ($22). He’s looked great this year and should be more active in the passing game with Danny Woodhead out for the season. The Colts have allowed the most fantasy points to opposing backs this year, making Gordon a steal at this price.

    Brad – CHRISTINE MICHAEL ($14). “Shot out of a cannon,” according to Pete Carroll last week, Michael amassed 6.0 yards per carry against a rock solid Rams front. This week facing a kinder, gentler foe in San Francisco (4.5 ypc allowed to CAR RBs in Week 2) and with Thomas Rawls unhealthy, the metrics darling is on track to head up the timeshare. Projecting 15-plus touches, the No. 6 ranked RB in evaded tackles weaves his way to 80-plus yards and a score.

  • Week 2 Fantasy Over/Under: T.J. Yeldon to answer DFS prayers

    [Play our $250K Baller | Free Yahoo Cup entry | Free commissioners $15K contest]

    Donning the DFS cap, what commodity is terribly UNDERVALUED in Week 2?

    Liz – ISAIAH CROWELL ($14). I’m not convinced that the Crow will continue to fly come the winter, but for now he’s the goal line back in Hue Jackson’s run-friendly offense. He was also the Brown’s lone score in Week 1. Even with Josh McCown under center, he’ll continue to get fed. I like his chances of scoring again in Week 2 at home against the Ravens. Clip the coupon. Not the wings.

    Conversely, what DFS option is the most OVERVALUED in Week 2?

    DUMPSTER DIVING. With shovel in hand, what player under 25-percent started should fantasy owners insert into their lineups?

    Todd Gurley, a fantasy ship trapped in a bottle last week in San Francisco, total yards this time around against visiting Seattle 79.5.
