Inside the Helmet: Danny Amendola 

Inside the Helmet: Danny Amendola  | Fantasy Football | Scoop.it
Get to know Patriots Wide Receiver Danny Amendola in this edition of 'Inside the Helmet'. 
Ryan McCarthy's insight:

Amendola might recieve a boost in targets with the injury to Rob Gronkowski. However, unless he gets a touchdown again Amendola might struggle to find much fantasy value. His inability to recieve more touchdowns has been a suprise all year.

Tavon Austin: Week 14 Fantasy Outlook

Tavon Austin: Week 14 Fantasy Outlook | Fantasy Football | Scoop.it
Austin has just six catches for 64 yards since his 138-yard, two-touchdown performance in Week 11.
Ryan McCarthy's insight:

Tavon Austin exploded with four touchdowns in the previous two games. Now with another tough opponent against Arizona, Austin might need to show off his impressive speed again. He should be a candidate for another solid game.

Giants’ WR Hakeem Nicks says he feels ‘real good’, plans to play vs. Redskins

Giants’ WR Hakeem Nicks says he feels ‘real good’, plans to play vs. Redskins | Fantasy Football | Scoop.it
The New York Giants will likely have their full arsenal of wide receivers this weekend when they take on the Washington Redskins as Hakeem Nicks is expected to return to the lineup.
Ryan McCarthy's insight:

Nicks sat out last week's game, but he might have a chance to grab a touchdown against Washington this week. He's only had four catches the past two games, but Nicks should feel anxious to get more involved.

Ryan McCarthy's insight:

Rice showed that is still struggling to find any sort of ground game consistency. He finished the Thanksgiving night performance with 12 carries and 32 yards. The Ravens will try to get Rice involved as they battle for a playoff spot.

Ryan McCarthy's comment, November 23, 2013 3:02 PM
Johnson has been exceptional the last few weeks averaging 17.5 points per game. Although the Oakland rush defense can stop some running backs Johnson appears ready to continue to break out and finish the season strong.

PFT on NBCSN: Danny Amendola, Week 11 storylines

PFT on NBCSN: Danny Amendola, Week 11 storylines | Fantasy Football | Scoop.it
Patriots wide receiver Danny Amendola didn’t play last week, but that wasn’t because of another injury.
Ryan McCarthy's insight:

Amendola remains an important target for Tom Brady since he returned from injury. The Panthers will put pressure on the Patriots, but expect him to be one of the main threats. In his last game against the Steelers Amendola finished with four catches, 122 yards and one touchdown. It might be a similar situation in an important Monday night game.

Ryan McCarthy's insight:

Rice continues to struggle averaging 1.6 yards per carry the last two games. Rice was suppose to be an important part of the running attack, but has been dissapointing. He does face a Bears team this week that allowed 336 rushing yards the last two games so there could be an improvement.

Ryan McCarthy's comment, November 9, 2013 1:59 PM
Reed has been a breakout star for many fantasy owners so far this season. His touchdown on Thursday gave my team an early advantage on the upcoming slate of games. Robert Griffin III still sees him as an important target for the Washington offense.

Ammendola battled a groin injury early in the year, but he appears ready to make an impact with the Patriots. Having Tom Brady throw to him also never hurts. It could time for Amendola to finally break out this season. It could be difficult though since the Steelers have allowed only one touchdown pass all season.

Rice continues to struggle at breaking off big games for the season. He was expected to be an important piece to the Ravens offense but underperformed. However, the Browns defense that has allowed 1,010 total yards (126.5 per game) to opposing backs on the season. This could finally be a breakout game for Rice.

Reed will have a chance against the underperforming Denver defense this weekend. The Broncos gave up a touchdown to a tight end in two of the last three games. Reed continues to be an important part of quarterback Robert Griffin III''s possible targets.

Ryan McCarthy's comment, October 18, 2013 4:50 PM
With Owen Daniels out, Graham's role on the Texans will be increasing throughout the next few weeks. Houston has a new quarterback in Case Keenum this weekend so Graham could be an important part of the offense especially if Keenum needs to check down.

Ryan McCarthy's insight:

Luck dominated the Texans in his first matchup with 24 fantasy points. With Houston in turmoil the last few weeks, Luck should have another opportunity to post another major fantasy day against a divisional opponent.

Ryan McCarthy's insight:

Although Ray Rice has been dealing with some issues off the field he might finally have a chance to score on the field. Rice continues to be a major disappointment for fantasy owners. But with a push to the playoffs for his team he finally might be able to score more than 10 points.

Andrew Luck, Andy Dalton Lead Teams Toward Playoffs 

Andrew Luck, Andy Dalton Lead Teams Toward Playoffs  | Fantasy Football | Scoop.it
Sunday’s Colts-Bengals game is bigger than Andrew Luck and Andy Dalton, but the teams they direct are 8-4 largely because of their play.
Ryan McCarthy's insight:

Luck has been steady for the last few weeks, but it appears he's been trending down a little bit. He'll have a difficult time with a Bengals defense who's given up more than 270 yards once this season. Look for Luck to be in a tight contest on Sunday.

49ers notes: Rams’ Tavon Austin gives 49ers something to think about - The Sacramento Bee

49ers notes: Rams’ Tavon Austin gives 49ers something to think about - The Sacramento Bee | Fantasy Football | Scoop.it
Speedy rookie has given St. Louis a big boost in recent weeks.
Ryan McCarthy's insight:

Austin has racked up 46 fantasy points the past two games. He's truly a talent for many positions. Whether it's running, recieving or special teams, Austin remains a huge part of why the Rams continue to improve each week. 

more...
Team Vernon's curator insight, November 30, 2013 9:52 PM

Austin has been one of the most interesting fantasy players of the 2013 season. The rookie reciever entered the year with a load of hype and dissapointed most owners for the first half of the season. There was a three week stretch where Austin caught six passes for 41 yards earlier this year. Just as many owners began to give up on Austin, he exploded for St. Louis, including a 138-yard, two touchdown performance against the Colts two weeks ago.

 

Austin will be a big part of the Ram's offense as they continue their surprise stretch of winning football.

Luck has been one of the most consistent players for my team this year. He's averaged 10 fantasy points and could do the same against the Cardinals. Arizona allowed 10 touchdown passes in its past five games so there's a chance the points could still be pouring in.

Reed continues to learn TE position

Reed continues to learn TE position | Fantasy Football | Scoop.it
The Redskins tight ends performance has allowed him into the
rookie of the year conversation. While he leads all rookies in
receptions, has he done enough to earn the recognition?
Ryan McCarthy's insight:

Reed was a great midseason pickup for my team. He's shown as a major influence on Washington's passing game with 37 catches and 337 yards since Week 7 which leads his position. Hopefully Reed can continue to improve down the strech of the season.

Rivers has been on a steady path the last few weeks that's resulted in a 73.9 completion percentage on the season. Switching back and forth between Rivers and Andrew Luck, I feel like Rivers is the more viable option. He's scored at least 11 fantasy points in every game.
