Week 7: Running Back Round Up

LacyEvery week, I examine the most turbulent backfields to determine whether a backup is due for a bigger role and how any possible changes will affect Fantasy relevant stars. Green Bay Packers running back Eddie Lacy is clinging to the upside and promise he established last season.

GREEN BAY PACKERS

I am tired of hearing from Eddie Lacy apologists. A player who was selected sixth overall in most fantasy drafts, the Packers RB1 has put up a mere three touchdowns on the season and is being outproduced by guys like Justin Forsett and Branden Oliver. READ MORE

Week 7: Tight End Triage

Andrew Luck,  Coby FleenerAs much as I love a good tight end, finding one to start on Sunday can be a real headache. With Jimmy Graham nursing a shoulder injury and both Zach Ertz and Austin Seferian-Jenkins on a bye, this week’s list of available options is as flukey as a Cowboys fan. Still, there are a few players who could prove to be hidden gems (we’re talking semi-precious stones, not diamonds in the rough here). Below, I’ve highlighted three TEs who have the potential to shine just brightly enough to get you through the week. READ MORE

Landing on Landry

LandryTiming is everything. It’s hard to believe that sometimes just a few seconds can alter years of a person’s life. Rookie Jarvis Landry understands this quite well.

Before that moment, the LSU product was considered just as talented and sought after as his teammate Odell Beckham Jr. Landry was selected in the second round by the Miami Dolphins. Beckham, as we’ve discussed, was picked up by the Giants in the first round. READ MORE

Riding the Quarterback Carousel

RG3 WaveThe NFL is a week-to-week league. Situations are always evolving and circumstances are ever-changing. That means never letting up and always looking ahead when managing your fantasy team. Our experts at Scout do an incredible job at staying ahead of the curve and identifying talent long before they become popular waiver wire picks or buzzed about names. Pinpointing potential roster changes and suggesting ways to successfully work through various transitions is equally important.

To that end, the quarterback position has been in a surprising amount of flux this season. For instance, Joe Flacco, who is owned in less than 85 percent of MFL leagues is currently the eight ranked fantasy QB. On the other hand, Drew Brees, whose ADP was 2.02 before the season began has fallen outside of the top twelve to number seventeen. Naturally, this has caused quite a bit of confusion for fantasy owners – especially those who play in two quarterback leagues. READ MORE
