Mike Thomas a buy-low? MT

(9/21/17) For current owners, Mike Thomas is ‘hold’ right now entering Week 3 of the 2017 fantasy football season. This also means he is a great buy-low for those of you that do not own him. He hasn’t had a big game yet,

Derrick Henry about to become a top 5-10RB? Buy DeMarco Murray? :: HENRY / DMUR

(9/20/17) Derrick Henry was a beast in Week 2, rushing for 92 yards and a TD on 14 carries. As said on our Bold Predictions prior to Week 1, there were no better ‘stash’ rushers in fantasy football than Derrick Henry and Tevin Coleman… well, it’s only Week 3, and Henry is already flirting with the kind of workload/numbers that warrants hardcore RB2 consideration. Could Henry hype slow down and DeMarco Murray bounce-back into RB1-type numbers? Sure, and that’s why… Continue Reading

Tarik Cohen (RB/CHI)

I posted a Stock Market write-up on Friday on this guy, and sent out a Sunday morning email on the kid. He was my gut feeling of the start of the season, much like Dak Prescott was last year. Well, it didn’t take him even half a game to shine, and as crazy as this sounds, he may have unseated Jordan Howard already… if not full-time, at least half-time. That’s a huge blow to Howard owners, but hopefully many of you capitalized off of my Stash and Grab Article on Friday, which highlighted grabbing both Cohen and Carson. If either is still available in your league, especially Cohen, grab them! Cohen is such an exciting player, a weapon Chicago cannot keep off the field. He is only 5-6, 179 pounds, but he’s lightning quick, has wiggle like Darren Sproles, and power like no 5-6 rusher I’ve seen. In Week 1, his NFL debut, Cohen rushed five times for 66 yards and caught 8-of-12 targets for 47 yards and a touchdown. Howard is still the starter, but what does that even mean after Cohen’s electric performance on Sunday? Howard didn’t do himself any favors dropping the would-be touchdown pass at the goal line with seconds left in the contest.

Buck Allen (RB/BAL)

(Update) 9/12/17: With Danny Woodhead out a significant amount of time, sources suggest, Allen has some decent appeal.

Kerwynn Williams/Andre Ellington/DJ Foster (RB/AZ)

(Update) – 9/12/17: It looks like most sources are pointing to a 2-4 Week timeframe for DJ to miss, or a 3-4 month timeframe. DJ is getting a second opinion, most likely speaking to the 3-4 month timeframe some fear. Nothing is clear just yet, but none of these runners are worth what Cohen is up above.
