Dee Ford- OLB KC: 1 Solo on 69/92% of the snaps>>>FOLD>>> He’s just not consistent enough to be a starter in fantasy.

Shaq Thompsom- OLB CAR: STREAMER; On Bye Week 7

We still have 13 games left so just breath and if you have a question about a player Tweet @Fatkat52  or leave a question at the bottom.

Week 8


Malcom Brown- DT/DE NE: STREAMER; I’m a little short on DT/DE this week and will be looking for some more. I think Brown is a great play for week 8 vs BUF who gives up the 4th most to DT and he just came off 5 Solos on 35/48% of the snaps.

Adrian Clayborn- DE ATL: STREAMER: He had a great week 7 with 3 Solos, 2 TFL, 1 SK 2 QBHits, 1 PD on 45/60% of the snaps and he has GB up next that give up the 2nd most points to DEs.

Carl Nissib (R)- DE CLE: STREAMER; Nassib coming back from an injury a few week ago and being a Rookie is getting used to the speed of the game. He has a great match up with NYJ as they gave up 5 SKs to BAL in week 7 and he had 2 Solos, 2 AST 1 SKs, 1 PD on 47/77% of the snaps in week 7.


Cory James (R)- ILB OAK: I guess we have to sit out James because OAK started Perry Riley ILB (2 Solos on 67/1005 of the snaps) over him that didn’t even get a snap oh 16 Special Team snaps but they don’t count for fantasy. Don’t drop James if you have room because Riley has had some injury problems the last few years that’s why WAS moved on from him. I still can’t believe they did that and you wonder why I hate OAK.

De’vondre Campbell (R) – OLB ATL: I’ve been waiting for this rookie to able to play a full game healthy and he didn’t disappoint me at all great job!!! For his first full game he put up 6 Solos 4 AST, 1 TFL on 75/100% of the snaps and with GB up next that Floyd OLD CHI put up 2 Solos, 1 AST, 1 TFL, 2 SKs 3 QBHits, 1 FF, 1 FR and a TD against in week 7.

Malcolm Smith- OLB OAK: It looks like Smith is finally healthy and may not be on a lot of the wires but if he is pick him up. Smith had a good week 7 with 6 Solos, 2 PD on 63/94% of the snaps.

Denzel Perryman- ILB SD: I know I keep putting him up on the Wire because when he gets at least 50% of the snaps he put up some good numbers (Brown ILB 1 Solo, 1 AST on 100% snaps) as he did in week 7 with 6 Solos, 1 AST, 1 PD, 1 INT on 34/52% of the snaps. Now he was hurt but he’s healthy now (best LB on SD) and not having his bye week till 11 we can plug and play him when you need a LB.

Derrick Morgan- OLB TEN: STREAMER; Morgan has been killing the last three weeks with 4.5 SKs 7 Solos, 2 AST, 4 TFL, 9 QBHits on about 74% of the snaps. He has a great match up for week 8 with JAX that give up the most points to LBs in the league.

Leonard Floyd (R)- OLB CHI: DYNASTY STASH; 2 Solos 51/71%>>>”Stash>>> Wait and see. I put Floyd on the week 3 Wire to stash- wait and see and now with his #ByeWeekBlues Week 9 it a good time to pick him up for the ROS. In week 7 he put up 2 Solos, 1 AST, 1 TFL, 2 SKs, 3 QBHits, 1 FF, 1 FR, 1 TD on only 35 snaps that was only 40% of the game total snaps. I see Acho played 51/59% of the snaps and he had 1 Solos, 2 AST, 2 QBHits, 1 PD so I can see Floyd picking up some more snaps and he has a great match with MIN week 8 who gave up 6 SKs to PHI D.

Emmanuel Ogbah (R)- OLB CLE: I put Obgah on a few weeks ago and with his 3 SKs and 3 QBHits in the last two weeks and he’s available in most leagues plus his matchup with the NYJ in week 8 who pony up the 3rd most to LBs.  In week 7 he had 5 Solos, 1 AST, 2 TFL, 2 SK, 2 QBHits on 55/90% of the snaps.

Blake Martinez (R)- ILB GB: I said this in week 3- 4 Solos 1 AST, 1 TFL on 41/71% of the snaps>>>Watch>>> Here is another great ILB where the same thing is happening to as Ryan. So let’s watch him also to see what happens in the next few weeks.

Now in week 8 he’ll be a great Streamer and since he already had his bye week a good pick (Dynasty Stash & Hold) for the rest of you byes where you need a LB. He put 2 Solos 3 AST, 1 TFL, 2 PD, 1 INT on only 35 snaps 73% about 20 snaps short of a Avg snap court for an NFL defensive team. He has a good match for week 8 with ATL were they gave 18 Solos and 3 SKs to SD backs.

Shaq Thompsom- OLB CAR: STREAMER; Was On Bye in Week 7;

Nigel Brandham- OLB PHI: He’s going to have a nice matchup with DAL in week 8 who give up the 8th most points to LBs. He put up 6 Solos, 1 AST, 1 TFL, 1 SK, 2 QBHits, 1 PD on 76/1000% of the snaps in week 7.

Keenan Robinson- OLB NYG: STREAMER; He’s going up as a streamer for week 9 when he comes back after his #ByeWeekBlues  week 8 because of his play in week 7 and because of the match up with PHI in week 8 who gave up 6 Solos, 1 AST, 1 TFL, 1 SK, 2 QBHits, 1 PD Nigel Brandham OLB and plays the same side as Robinson.



David Amerson- CB OAK: STREAMER; I’m really disappointed in Amerson this year I thought it was going to be his break out year. He just has not put up the numbers but he has a great match up with TB in week who give up the most points to CB this year. He had 4 Solos, 2 PD, 1 INT on 67/100% of the snaps.

Prince Amukamara- CB JAX: Now the Prince has not been putting up big numbers this year but with his good match up with TEN (12th most points to CB) and finally being health (we’ll see how long that last) he has a chance to put some great ones. He had 7 Solos on 70/97% of the snaps in week 7.

Kurt Coleman- SS CAR: Was On Bye in Week 7

Clayton Geathers- FS IND: Just like Adams above Geathers is putting some steady numbers every week with 18 Solos on 100% of the snaps no bye till week 10.

Buster Skrine- CB NYJ: STREAMER; Skrine has put up some okay numbers the last few weeks and is playing 100% of the snaps. He had 10 Solos, 1 AST, 1 PD, 1 INT and never coming out of the game so I think he’ll be a good streamer for week 8.

Cre’von Leblanc (R)- CB CHI: WATCH; Not not sure what’s going on in CHI DB core but with a 3rd string and a 4th string getting more snaps than Glen and Callahan CBs in week 7, it makes me wonder why ? The rookie put up 6 Solos, 1 AST, 1 QBHits, 2 PD on 82/94% of the snaps while Glen and Callahan both only had 16 snaps. The 1st year Devante Bausby CB 4th string had 7 Solos, 1 AST,  on 56/64% of the snaps. Going to check into this.
