Sleeper: Tion Green

Week 14 Sleeper Alert

  1. Tion Green | RB DET
smitty sleeper u fantasy football

Ameer Abdullah is inactive today (Week 14), which means that the Lions may turn to Tion Green. Theo Riddick could get some work, so Green is far from a lock to get starter touches, but if in a jam this week, he’s a great grab and start. In leagues where my flex spot has been hit by injury, I’m starting Green. He has potential sleeper value, folks, so he should at least be grabbed even if you can’t use him this week. Last week, Green had 11 carries for 51 yards and a TD. He looked the part, too.

Samaje Perine was a solid pickup last week with Rob Kelley (knee, ankle) no longer in the picture… now Chris Thompson (fibula) is out for the year, and that makes Perine a full-time starter and maybe even a RB2 moving forward. Grab him ASAP! In Week 11, he had 24 touches (23 carries, one reception on two targets) and totaled 126 yards and a TD.

Greg Olsen was on a bye in Week 11, but he is expected back in Week 12, and somehow is available in over 50% of most all leagues. Crazy. Pick him up!

Kenny Stills went nuts in Week 11… he pulled in eight targets for 180 yards and a TD. He has had more than one big game this year, so his place with the WR3s and flex players is now cemented into place.

Corey Coleman had a nice first game back from injury pulling in 6 passes for 80 yards. Josh Gordon is expected back in Week 13, so both guys are worth grabbing. Gordon, though, has more elite upside if you ask me.

Week 9: Watson ACL, Out

Breaking News

NEWS: Texans QB Deshaun Watson has torn his ACL and is having season-ending knee surgery.

Deshaun Watson tears ACL; What now if he is your QB?

Wow. What a bad year for big-name players getting hurt… Andrew Luck, David Johnson, Odell Beckham, J.J. Watt, Aaron Rodgers, and now DeShaun Watson, these are some of the biggest players in the game of fantasy football.

Watson in particular is a huge hit, as the guy couldn’t have had a better start to his career. It was a non-contact injury and MRI results confirmed the ACL tear. Tom Savage will take over at QB now, which spells huge downgrades for everyone across the board. DeAndre Hopkins goes from a top 2-5WR in fantasy to a likely hot and cold high-end fantasy WR2 (with hopes of a low-end WR1). And, Will Fuller now goes from sneaky-awesome WR2/3 to a flex/WR4 play that will now likely be hit and miss all year long. And, forget about that rushing attack.

If you lost Watson, hopefully you have a decent back-up to now toss in, as you likely drafted Watson as your QB1B. Who can you trade for if you want to trade into a QB after this news? Here are some players I would target at QB:

Drew Brees QB Saints
Tom Brady QB Patriots

Both of these guys are big-name players, so they will command a lot. That said, both have been playing well below top 1-2 this year, as guys like Alex Smith have been outscoring both passers. Well, trust in these two (Brees and Brady) down the stretch. Both are in my top 3 fantasy QBs for Weeks 9-17, and I think that either will carry you during bad weeks. Other QBs to target include:

Kirk Cousins QB Redskins
Ben Roethlisberger QB Steelers

Both have top 5-8QB upside and both can be had near that 8-12 range via trade, especially if someone has one of these guys on their bench. Derek Carr is another player to think about, he also had top 5-10QB appeal, but could, in some cases, be had for less.

If you own DeAndre Hopkins and Will Fuller, now what?

Try selling high in the sense you could maybe still buy low on a lateral-move type player, someone like Mike Thomas who can still be a low-end WR1 but his owners might trade him away as a very low-end WR2. Brandin Cooks is another player that is worth looking at, as some value him super-high, some do not.

Elliott to play Week 7?

Dallas Running Backs

  1. Ezekiel Elliott: He has been granted a temporary restraining order for his six-game suspension; he will now be available for Week 7 and maybe Week 8.
  2. Alfred Morris: The likely No. 2, but lacks receiving skills.
  3. Darren McFadden: A better receiver of a the group.
  4. Rod Smith: The underdog, but very talented.


Ezekiel Elliott granted temporary restraining order and will now play Week 7 and maybe Week 8

Elliott might even play Week 8, as the alleged fill-in judge on this case granted the restraining order, which reportedly gives Zeke and his camp 14 days. Once the regular judge on this case is back from vacation, she will rule again on the matter. What does this mean for the entire season? Nothing. We don’t know anything in terms of Weeks 9-17, but it does sound like Zeke will be eligible for both Weeks 7 and 8, which means if Zeke did start serving his six-game suspension after these two weeks, he would miss Weeks 9-14 and be back for Week 15. I know most of you want me to predict some things here, but the truth is no one has answers regarding a suspension for Weeks 9-14… If I own Zeke, I shop him after this news, as he now has more value today than he did yesterday. I do not sell low, but I entertain offers that make sense. Example: I trade away Ezekiel Elliott for Mike Thomas and Adrian Peterson. Something like that makes a lot of sense for a team that might need to trade into a safer set of players in order to win in 2017.

The Conclusion

If you own Ezekiel Elliott, do NOT sell-low. There is no puprose in it. Grab Alfred Morris and Darren McFadden if you can; do this instead of selling low, and keep in mind that fantasy owners that own both back-ups might be considering dropping both players this week after this news. Why? It’s tough holding players on your roster that won’t likely play for two full weeks. It creates frustration, so if you own Zeke and do not have the back-ups, make “buy-low” offers for Morris and McFadden (after tonight’s news is now floating around).

If you do not own Zeke, I say stay away unless you can get him from a panicking owner, one that is ready to send Zeke as this good news floods in… It won’t be very likely that you can pull off a buy-low deal with most current Zeke owners, but it’s worth a try, as some owners will look to wash their hands of this up and down drama… if you can trade away a Carlos Hyde or something like that in order to get your hands on this frustrating situation, well, it wouldn’t be too frustrating if you bought in on the cheap. If you have crazy loads of depth, make a move and send a grip of bench players packing for this high-upside mess of a situation. That’s the only way I buy-into this drama, though.
