Fantasy Football Waiver Wire RotoAdvice: Week 12

jonas gray

Jonas Gray recalls the straight ahead, hard running rushers of the recent Patriots pass, but is he worth picking up after his epic game?

As always, let’s take a look at who’s below the 50 percent owned in CBS leagues.

The Quarterbacks:

Last Week: (Bridgewater, Bortles, Carr, Mallett)

Drew Stanton, Arizona Cardinals (35 percent owned)

Bruce Arians loves to throw the long ball. Drew Stanton will throw said long ball. Yardage ensues. The only drawback is the upcoming schedule, which is full of top 10 defenses vs. QB.

Josh McCown, Tampa Bay Buccaneers (35 percent owned)

Despite the Bucs’ government shutdown of Washington, they are still the third worst defense in the league. So McCown will have to continue to throw and he has great receivers in Vincent Jackson and Mike Evans, the latter of which may just be the Alshon Jeffrey of this season for McCown.

The Running Backs:

Last week: C.J. Anderson (now 82 percent)

Charles Sims, Tampa Bay Buccaneers (45 percent owned)

Sims got more work than Bobby Rainey last week, his second week back on the team. The Bucs offense is going to be in constant catchup mode and Sims should continue to see the majority of the work.

Jonas Gray, New England Patriots (33 percent owned)

As was stated soooo many times on the Sunday Night broadcast, there isn’t anything particulary special about Gray. He runs hard and right where he’s scripted to go and he did it so well against the ninth worst run defense in the league that he nearly gained 200 yards to go with four touchdowns. It’s insane to bet on what the Patriots will do from game to game, especially at running back, but Gray does have a Sammy Morris/Corey Dillon vibe to him and those guys did pretty well as the tailback.

The Wide Receivers:

Last week: Matthews (now 86% owned), Brown (60%), Adams

Davante Adams, Green Bay Packers (38 percent owned, last week – 48%)

Adams did score last week, but is still a WR3, which means his targets will vary from week to week. The Packers are an offensive juggernaut right now and Adams is on the field for between 65-90 percent of the action every week.

Kenny Stills, New Orleans Saints (31 percent owned)

Brandin Cooks is out for over a month and Marques Colston has been subpar this season, so that leaves Stills, who has suffered from the Saints lack of long pass avoidance syndrome. Stills did catch a TD and all four of his targets last week and could pick up some volume with Cooks out.

FanDuel Daily Fantasy Basketball Picks from RotoAdvice

james harden

Check out the Daily Fantasy Basketball Picks where it’s Big Wednesday in the NBA!

The Daily goes through the top Guards, Forwards and Centers for the evening’s slate of games. Advanced information found on RotoGrinders and basketball-reference.com.

The Daily Picks are based on prices through FanDuel — get started playing daily fantasy basketball on FanDuel today! CLICK HERE!

The Centers:

Top Tier (7.5K+): Dwight Howard, Houston Rockets vs. Los Angeles ($9,100)

He’s got his personal issues, but assuming he’s able to put that aside, he can focus on blowing through the Lakers weak front line. The Lakers are on the back end of the back-to-back, and even though they won in Atlanta last night, it wasn’t because of the defense.

Discount Rack (<7K): Gorgui Dieng, Minnesota Timberwolves vs. New York ($4,800)

Well known that Dieng is practically on his own inside for Minnesota against the poor Knicks defense. When he started last season, he was DFS gold — even if he is silver tonight, he’s worth it at this number.

Other Plays: Tyson Chandler, Mavs ($6,200), Nik Vucevic, Magic ($8,700)

The Forwards:

Top Tier (7.5K+): LeBron James, Cavaliers vs. San Antonio ($10,700)

It’s a one-man show above the Top Tier number tonight, so it’s LeBron, who is a cash game gimme on FanDuel, even against SAS.

Discount Rack (<7K): Jeff Green ($6,900) and Jared Sullinger ($6,800), Boston Celtics vs. Philadelphia

Top line of the night and Green is a common recipient of Rondo passes. Philly isn’t the worst defensive team, but their pace, and Boston’s, along with their borderline worst ten defense, Green is a great play. Sullinger has constantly produced and should continue to do so against the Sixers frontcourt.

Other Plays: Channing Frye, Magic ($5,000), Jeremy Lamb, Thunder ($5,400), Tobias Harris, Magic ($7,200), Wilson Chandler, Nuggets ($4,900), Anthony Bennett, Wolves ($3,700), Nerlens Noel, Sixers, ($5,600)

The Guards:

Top Tier (7.5K+) James Harden, Houston Rockets vs. Los Angeles Lakers ($10,100)

One thing I’ve learned from having other Rockets on previous nights….the ball is always in Harden’s hands. Defensively, Kobe and everyone in the Lakers’ backcourt can’t or won’t play defense. Harden will be nutzo. Our top tier pick of the night.

John Wall, Washington Wizards vs. Dallas ($9,100)

It’s Jameer Nelson and JJ Barea at point guard for the Mavericks to cover Wall — the Mavericks are a middle-of-the-road defense and forecasts to be one of the higher scoring games of the night.

Discount Rack (<7K): Iman Shumpert, New York Knicks @ Minnesota ($5,400)

Shump is my guy going against a depleted Minnesota roster which is already the second worst defense in the league.

Other Plays: Rajon Rondo, Celtics ($8,900), Eric Bledsoe, Suns ($6,700), Kevin Martin, Wolves ($6,200)

FanDuel Daily Fantasy Basketball Picks from RotoAdvice

Rondo

Check out the Daily Fantasy Basketball Picks where we are more hype than Rondo for the biggest Monday slate of the year!

The Daily goes through the top Guards, Forwards and Centers for the evening’s slate of games. Advanced information found on RotoGrinders and basketball-reference.com.

The Daily Picks are based on prices through FanDuel — get started playing daily fantasy basketball on FanDuel today! CLICK HERE!

The Centers:

Top Tier (7.5K+): Dwight Howard, Houston Rockets @ Memphis ($9,500)

He’s the biggest number at the center tonight and may post the biggest number. I could get argued over to Nic Vucevic against the Pistons in Detroit tonight, if you wanted a haircut on this. I’ll probably go into the rack for my center tonight.

Discount Rack (<7K): Kelly Olynyk, Boston Celtics vs. Phoenix ($5,400)

He will likely bottom out now that I do believe he’s good to go every night, but Olynyk should fare well in a high pace game without a tough cover at center to get him into foul trouble.

Other Plays: Tyson Chandler, Mavericks ($6,200), Anderson Varejao, Cavs ($4,900)

The Forwards:

Top Tier (7.5K+): Anthony Davis, Pelicans vs. Portland ($11,600), LeBron James, Cavaliers vs. Denver ($10,700)

Davis keeps creeping up in price because he keeps getting to value and may be the play over even LeBron if Omer Asik is out for the Pelicans tonight. James is sick, but should be able to produce against the defensively challenged Nuggets. I am definitely picking one of them and building value plays around them tonight.

Discount Rack (<7K): Jared Sullinger, Boston Celtics vs. Phoenix ($6,800)

It’s supposed to be the second highest scoring game of the night and closer than Cleveland/Denver, which is the top game. This gives all the currently consistent Celtics like Sullinger the opportunity to beat their normal averages and pound value.

Other Plays: Channing Frye, Magic ($5,000), Shawne Williams, Heat ($4,500), Wilson Chandler, Nuggets ($4,700)

The Guards:

Top Tier (7.5K+) Rajon Rondo, Boston Celtics vs. Phoenix ($8,500)

Why break the streak – Rondo is the triggerman and because his value is derived from stuffing the box score beyond scoring, the higher paced game will help him accrue the rebounds, assists, etc that make his value.

Damian Lillard, Portland Trail Blazers vs. New Orleans ($8,700)

If Aldridge and Batum miss again tonight, then you have to look at Lillard, who will be looked to for offense in Portland. Has been over 42.3 points in the last three games, including 45 and 46.5 his last two without those other two guys.

Discount Rack (<7K): Mario Chalmers, Miami Heat @ Brooklyn ($4,600)

As long as Dwyane Wade is out, then Chalmers is my other PG tonight, with 37.7 and 26.9 points in the last two games.

Other Plays: Jimmy Butler, Bulls ($7,500), Tyreke Evans, Pelicans ($7,600), Courtney Lee, Grizzlies ($5,300), Joe Johnson, Nets ($6,700)

Deep Drivel: NFL Week 11 Recap and Commentary

rivers

The Raiders/Chargers game was a struggle to watch — here’s hoping you didn’t have too many of these guys rostered in Week 11.

Dolphins 22, Bills 9:  Ryan Tannehill (240 yards, 2 TD’s) remains consistently inconsistent, putting up a solid game against an impressive Bills defense.  Buffalo benched noodle-armed draft bust E.J. Manuel for selling-pencils-on-the-street-corner Kyle Orton, and guess what?  He sucks too!  Where’s my shocked face?

 

kramer

 

Falcons 19, Panthers 17:  Cameron Newton (292 yards, 2 TD’s) was playing so poorly at one point the announcers wondered aloud if he should be benched.  While a gimpy shell of his former self, he still showed he can put up garbage-time yards as well as anyone, along with sidekick Kelvin Benjamin (9-109-1), a lazy receiver that doesn’t believe in doing anything until the fourth quarter of every game.  Do his owners care?  Of course not.  Matt Ryan (268 yards, 1 TD) continued to fall off the face of the Earth.  Both of these teams have inexcusable jokes of a running game.

 

Bears 21, Vikings 13:  Leave it to the crappy Vikings to let this reeling Bears team beat them like drums.  Playing against one of the worst defenses in league history, Theodore Bridgewater (158 yards, 1 TD) led this rudderless ship to an embarrassing 243 yards.  So much for Norv Turner being creative on offense – he needs to be run out of town on a rail.  Minnesota’s defense wasn’t any better, making fading QB Jay Cutler (330 yards, 3 TD’s) look like Sammy Baugh.

 

Texans 23, Browns 7:  Cleveland took a step closer to having watchable football with Brian Hoyer (20 for 50) stinking up the joint while Johnny Manziel smokes cigars on the sideline.  It’s only a matter of time, Browns fans.  I read that several teams are licking their chops to sign the free-agent-to-be Hoyer, which is a great illustration at how desperate NFL teams are for QB’s.  Hoyer is a mediocrity that would make a fine backup, but he’ll snooker an $80 million deal out of somebody.  Ugh.  Ryan Mallett (211 yards, 2 TD’s) played pretty well for his first start, actually bringing a vertical passing game back to Houston.  You give Alfred Blue 36 carries and still win?  Only the Browns.

 

Chiefs 24, Seahawks 20:  199 pound RB Jamaal Charles (20-159-2) remains a man among boys.  Who says you have to be a 230 pound brute to be a great between-the-tackles runner?  He’s still the best back in fantasy football.  Suddenly the Chiefs have a better record than the champion Seahawks, who seem to have lost their mojo.

 

Bengals 27, Saints 10:  No idea what is going on with the Saints, who really laid an egg against a crappy Bengals defense.  Drew Brees (255 yards, 1 TD) isn’t throwing nearly as effectively as he has in the past, for reasons no one seems to know.  Jimmy Graham only targeted 3 times while Mark Ingram gets 23 carries?  What the hell is going on?  Andy Dalton (220 yards, 3 TD’s) bounced back from some recent dismal performances and Jeremy Hill (27-152) ran all over New Orleans.

 

49ers 16, Giants 10:  Eli Manning (280 yards, 1 TD) threw 5 interceptions and New York STILL came a Larry Donnell dropped pass in the end zone away from winning this game, which tells you how poorly San Francisco is playing.  Colin Kaepernick (193 yards, 1 TD) is all over the map these days, sending people in the crowd to the hospital with his erratic heaves.

 

Rams 22, Broncos 7:  Denver with 7 points?  It’s hard to believe, honestly.  Peyton Manning (389 yards, 1 TD) threw for his usual yardage but couldn’t get anything going in the red zone.  The Rams mercifully euthanized the career of Austin Davis and looked like a real team as a result.  Shaun Hill (220 yards, 1 TD), Tre Mason (29-113), and Kenny Britt (4-128-1) turned out to be too much to handle for the overrated Broncos defense.  Does anyone still think they’re going to the Super Bowl?  It’s laughable.

 

Bucs 27, Redskins 7:  I’m not sure what Jay Gruden was supposed to bring to Washington, but I think it’s pretty safe to say this wasn’t it.  Suddenly Mike Shanahan doesn’t look so bad after this latest embarrassment.  Blown out by this dismal Bucs squad in your own backyard?  How was Gruden not fired on the spot?  Mike Evans (7-209-2) may be the hottest WR in fantasy football.

 

Chargers 13, Raiders 6:  Who actually chose to attend this game?  Both teams stunk, but the Raiders stunk worse.  Nothing else to say.

 

Cardinals 14, Lions 6:  This one was a bit of an old-fashioned smashmouth defensive battle, which may satisfy football purists but sucks royally for fantasy leaguers.  Drew Stanton (306 yards, 2 TD’s) and Michael Floyd (2-54-2) were responsible for pretty much all the offense in the game.

 

Packers 53, Eagles 20:  Green Bay does it again, building up such an insurmountable lead they let off the gas for the entire second half.  It’s both awe-inspiring and maddening if you’ve got the likes of Aaron Rodgers (341 yards, 3 TD’s), Jordy Nelson (4-109-1), and Randall Cobb (10-129) who are forced to put up their ridiculous numbers in just a half.  Hell, imagine what they could do with a full game?  If the Packers continue to play even half this good they are going to win the Super Bowl without much of a challenge.

 

See you next week.

FanDuel Daily Fantasy Basketball Picks from RotoAdvice

Houston Rockets v Oklahoma City Thunder

Check out the Daily Fantasy Basketball Picks where we love Friday night slates!

The Daily goes through the top Guards, Forwards and Centers for the evening’s slate of games. Advanced information found on RotoGrinders and basketball-reference.com.

The Daily Picks are based on prices through FanDuel — get started playing daily fantasy basketball on FanDuel today! CLICK HERE!

The Centers:

Dwight Howard, Houston Rockets vs. Philadelphia ($9,400)

IF he plays a full game, he’s rock solid against a sorry, sorry 76ers team who could play twice as good as Thursday night against Dallas and still be worth targeting tonight.

Roy Hibbert, Indiana Pacers vs. Denver Nuggets ($6,700)

Should easily make value against the second worst defense in the league right now. The Nuggets center rotation is a mess and Hibbert should be able to stay out of four trouble with little to worry about on the defensive end.

Value Plays: Kelly Olynyk, Celtics ($5,400), Omer Asik, Pelicans ($5,500), Steven Adams, Thunder ($4,000)

The Forwards:

Tim Duncan, San Antonio Spurs @ Los Angeles Lakers ($8,000)

The Spurs play tomorrow night, also, so if this game gets out of hand, Duncan could get Popped and fail to stack the numbers against the Lakers, who are the worst defense in the league. But you have to nod to the matchup here and hope that Kobe keeps it close.\

Anthony Davis, Pelicans vs. Minnesota ($11,400), LeBron James ($10,700) and Kevin Love ($8,900), Cavaliers @ Boston

All three are great plays, but the cost on them has made it near improbable to find value in rostering them. All three have excellent matchup and could do it, though. Good luck on roster construct if you do, especially on Davis.

Trevor Ariza, Houston Rockets vs. Philadelphia ($6,200)

Good bet to find value if he plays the minutes, meaning that Philly keeps it within 30 for three quarters. He is the third option when Harden and Howard are on the floor, but the ball often finds Ariza open for three when it does get to him.

Kawhi Leonard, San Antonio Spurs @ Los Angeles Lakers ($6,800)

He’s likely to draw the Kobe assignment, which looks like it fuels Leonard rather than wear on him. The Lakers have allowed the most layups/dunks in the league so far this year per game. They are also third worst in defending the three. It’s a defensive marvel! Congrats, fellas!

Value Plays: Channing Frye, Magic ($5,000), Chris Copeland ($5,600) and Solomon Hill ($5,100), Pacers, Kostas Papanikolaou, Rockets ($4,200)

The Guards:

Tony Parker, San Antonio Spurs @ Los Angeles Lakers ($7,000)

Go back and read the stats about the Lakers defense under Kawhi’s recommendation — and now picture Jeremy Lin running after Tony Parker. Please Kobe, keep this close!

Jrue Holiday ($7,200) and Tyreke Evans ($7,600), New Orleans Pelicans vs. Minnesota

The Timberwolves are a bottom five defense right now and giving up the sixth worst 3pt% and eFG% in the league. Holiday and Evans should be able to take advantage, especially when all eyes are on The Brow.

James Harden, Houston Rockets vs. Philadelphia ($10,200)

He has the ball in his hands on every possession and does a lot with it. Harden should be able to make 50FP fairly easily if he plays his usual amount of minutes.

Other Plays: Anthony Morrow, Thunder ($4,400), Evan Fournier, Magic ($5,600), Manu Ginobili, Spurs ($5,300)

Daily Fantasy Football Picks from RotoAdvice: Week 11

graham

Check out the Daily RotoAdvice Fantasy Football Picks where you should just pony up for the thoroughbreds at TE.

Tiers based on pricing from FanDuel — signup and play today!

The Quarterbacks:

High $$$ QB:

Peyton Manning, Denver Broncos @ St. Louis ($10,400)

Peyton did not let us down in his rout of the Raiders and he won’t again in the temperature controlled climate of St. Louis. The Broncos on an indoor track with Peyton dealing with 0.00 weather effects? Yes, please!

MID-TIER QB:

Robert Griffin III, Washington Redskins vs. Tampa Bay ($7,400)

The only caveat is potential rain the forecast in Washington, but otherwise, this is a sweet way for RGIII to get back into the throw of things by launching against the beleaguered Buccaneers defense.

Note: Mark Sanchez ($6,900) is going to be a popular choice here because the theory would have it that he’ll have to throw, throw, throw to keep up with Green Bay, but that could just lead to Sanchez being on his back all day long. See Cutler, Jay, Week 10.

DISCOUNT RACK QB:

Drew Stanton, Arizona Cardinals vs. Detroit ($5,900)

Don’t love the matchup, but if you are going to go dumpster for QB (which I don’t advocate except in the last of your tournament lineups), this is your guy this week. At home, locked into John Brown, in a Bruce Arians heave-it-up attack. Seems reasonable.

WHO WE’RE STARTING THIS WEEKManning

The Running Backs:

High $$$ RB:

Le’Veon Bell, Pittsburgh Steelers @ Tennessee ($8,600)

Bell has been solid but hasn’t been the juggernaut that he should be due to some wacky personnel decisions at and around the goal line. Great matchup and a nice discount from the top tier he should be on, which is around Matt Forte money ($9,300).

MID-TIER RB:

Shane Vereen, New England Patriots vs. Indianapolis ($6,500)

It should, should be an up and down the field thrillgame, with Luck and Brady slinging it around. If that’s the case, then Shane Vereen and his pass catching abilities should be front and center.

DISCOUNT RACK RB:

Jonathan Stewart, Carolina Panthers vs. Atlanta ($5,100)

Stewart is back and is got two goal line touches in last week’s blowout loss to Philadelphia. With Cam Newton getting knocked around, Stewart may get more goal line work, even if Deangelo Williams ($5,500) plays this week. With the Falcons leaky defense, that could mean a nice high-upside scoring day for Stewart.

WHO WE’RE STARTING: Bell, Mark Ingram ($8,000), Vereen

The Wide Receivers:

High $$$ Receiver:

Demaryius Thomas, Denver Broncos @ St. Louis

Love this matchup, indoors, with Manning throwing to Thomas and others over and over again. The Rams are eighth worst in pass coverage and I am expecting them to drop even further after this game.

MID-TIER Receiver:

Kelvin Benjamin, Carolina Panthers vs. Atlanta ($6,600)

Catch two touchdowns and DROP in price in the next week? Ok, we’ll take it, even though it was absolute gar-bahge time that Benjamin caught his two scores. Every minute counts in DFS and Benjamin is going to be the guy if Carolina falls behind, which they likely will.

DISCOUNT RACK Receiver:

Jordan Matthews, Philadelphia Eagles @ Green Bay ($5,500)

A lot of folks will be on Matthews this week at this price, so bear that in mind as well the fact that Mark Sanchez is not a guarantee in Green Bay, even if they get behind.

WHO WE’RE STARTING: Thomas, Julio Jones ($8,200), Vincent Jackson ($6,500), Benjamin

The Tight Ends:

All Tiers:

Jimmy Graham, New Orleans Saints vs. Cincinnati ($7,900)

Rob Gronkowski, New England Patriots @ Indianapolis ($8,100)

Just pay for Graham and/or Gronk, who both have great matchups this week. BUT, if you don’t then,

Travis Kelce, Kansas City Chiefs vs. Seattle ($5,900)

Kelce doesn’t get all the reps or targets that all of us believe he should get, but he is second, behind Gronk, in receiving yards per route run. He’s good.

WHO WE’RE STARTING: Gronk, Kelce

More in the Rack (All Positions):

  • Bishop Sankey, RB, Titans ($5,300)

  • Malcom Floyd, WR, Chargers ($5,400)

  • Shaun Hill, QB, Rams ($5,000)

  • Justin Hunter, WR, Titans ($5,300)

FanDuel Daily Fantasy Basketball Picks from RotoAdvice

steph curry

Check out the Daily Fantasy Basketball Picks where we’re going with what we know. And what we know is Golden.

The Daily goes through the top Guards, Forwards and Centers for the evening’s slate of games. Advanced information found on RotoGrinders and basketball-reference.com.

The Daily Picks are based on prices through FanDuel — get started playing daily fantasy basketball on FanDuel today! CLICK HERE!

The Centers:

Tyson Chandler, Dallas Mavericks vs. Philadelphia ($6,000)

Like the steady Chandler at a decent price against the Sixers. Usual caveats about closeness of contest applies here, especially being in Dallas rather than Philly. If you feel frisky, you could roster Brandan Wright if you believe that there will be more time for the bench than usual.

Andrew Bogut, Golden State Warriors vs. Brooklyn ($5,800)

Bogut has been solid and has seen his price bump a bit in the process. They have a good matchup at home against the Nets tonight and should keep it close, though Vegas feels otherwise.

Value Plays:  Brandan Wright, Mavs ($3,900),

The Forwards:

Pau Gasol, Chicago Bulls @ Toronto ($8,600)

Like Pau tonight in a knife fight in Toronto, though virtually value-neutral here. The Raptors have been sneaky bad defense so far, giving up a ton of inside shots and a high 2pt and eFG%. Meanwhile, Gasol has been rock solid so far this year so we’ll keep playing him until he starts to wear down under the minutes of Thibs.

Dirk Nowitzki ($7,800) and Chandler Parsons ($6,200), Dallas Mavericks vs. Philadelphia

Like both Mavs forwards to get their points going against a giving Sixers defense, fourth worst in the NBA and third fastest paced team.

Value Plays: K.J. McDaniels, Sixers ($4,800), Bojan Bogdanovic, Nets ($4,400)

The Guards:

Stephen Curry ($9,900) and Klay Thompson ($7,500), Golden State Warriors vs. Brooklyn

Gotta roster the two towers of the hottest team in the L right now in Curry and Thompson. Curry has been money in the bank and that shouldn’t change with a matchup with Deron Williams. Thompson has been usually steady and comes in at nice price for the potential highest scoring team in the league here.

Devin Harris, Dallas Mavericks vs. Philadelphia ($4,600)

Jameer Nelson (hamstring) has been banged up and Harris has been more effective anyway — Harris could see extended time if the Mavericks establish a large second half lead.

Kyle Lowry, Toronto Raptors vs. Chicago ($8,300)

A solid play in what should be a close game, Lowry is going to be looked to for more offense with Jimmy Butler tied to DeMar DeRozan tonight. With Derrick Rose still easing his way back defensively, it could be a solid value night for Lowry, who has been a little up and down with his production in DFS.

**Tony Wroten, Philadelphia 76ers @ Dallas ($7,600)

Starting off, he’s a good start even if he has to play the 2 tonight. IF Michael Carter-Williams doesn’t play, Wroten is a real good start. If MCW AND Alexey Shved can’t play either…..well then Wroten is a must-play everywhere.

Other Plays: Joe Johnson, Nets ($6,400), Tony Allen, Grizzlies ($4,800), Courtney Lee, Grizzlies ($5,300),
