SCARECROWGRIN FANTASY FOOTBALL WEEKLY: NOV. 30th, 2017
FANTASY FOOTBALL WEEK 13
With the Fantasy football playoffs fast approaching, there seems to be a number of unexpected players to step out into the spotlight and could possibly lead you and your team to fantasy glory. This piece will be a little longer than usual because I want to make sure the borderline fantasy playoff teams get all the necessary information they need to secure that playoff spot.
With Robert Woods out with a shoulder Injury the last two games Cooper Kupp ( 19.60 fantasy points) has averaged 15.50 ppg, he is Jared Goff’s most trusted wide out and should be started in all leagues. When a guy is the top target on one of the most explosive offenses its simple, get him in your line up by any means necessary.
At Tight End Greg Olsen returned from a foot injury only to reinjure that same foot after 1 catch on sunday. Its said that its not serious but the last thing you want is for your starting TE to give you 4 snaps then sit the rest of the game. Tight ends like Charles Clay who is returning from injury himself but played the whole game last week and Jared Cook who will see an uptick in targets with Cooper and Crabtree both scheduled to miss time.
Case Keenum ( 34.10 fantasy points) was our week 12 BOC quarterback and he paid off but he’s actually been one of the top fantasy QBs over the past month. He is averaging 27.26 fppg in their last 4 contest. As long as Mike Summer starts Case Keenum you should be starting Case Keenum. Going hand and hand with Keenum is Adam Thielen ( 16.90 fantasy points), during Keenum hot streak Thielen has been his favorite target. In that same 4 games span Thielen is averaging 23.6 fppg. This combo is one that can lead you to a championship.
The Los Angeles Chargers defense has gotten hot as of late. They have scored 10 or more in 3 straight games and has Intercepted 9 passes in that same stretch. With Cleveland, Washington, Kansas city and NY Jets as their last 4 fantasy opponents, they could be the defense that carries you to and through the playoffs.
The high volume for Rookie RB Joe Mixon ( 25.50 fantasy points) has finally ended in a big fantasy day. He had his first career 100 yard game and as we said weeks and weeks ago, this is his backfield but now he is producing with his touches. His volume alone at this time of the year makes him a must start going forward. Speaking of volume, with Damien Williams out with a separated shoulder. Kenyan Drake (11.70 fantasy points) will receive a bigger role in week 13 so he is a prime streaming option if thats what you need to get you over the hump.
BREAKOUT CANDIDTES WEEK 12 (RESULTS)
QB – Case Keenum – 34.10
RB – J.D. Mckissic – 8.60
WR – Brandon LaFell – 6.30
Our week 12 BOC’s were led by QB Case Keenum as he put up another big number but McKissic and LaFell left a lot to be desired. Week 13 is the final week of the fantasy regular season and I’m looking to give you 3 big time scorers.
BREAKOUT CANDIDATES WEEK 13
QB – Josh McCown – Jets
RB – Kenyon Drake – Dolphins
WR – Cooper Kupp – Rams
let’s see how our BOC’s do in the final week of the fantasy football regular season.
