Terrelle Pryor Is Big Ballin’

Bobby McMann October 1, 2016 11:23AM EDT
We are not even out of September yet and the Fantasy landscape has shifted significantly. From injuries to emerging talent to Josh Gordon’s decision to head to rehab, the rollercoaster ride is part of what makes Fantasy Football so entertaining. As we look ahead to this weekend’s action, let’s discuss some fluctuating player values for daily, seasonal and dynasty formats.

Carson Wentz (QB, Eagles) – “Did you ever know that you’re my hero? And everything I’d like to be. I can fly higher than an eagle. With you as the wind beneath my wings.” A small school prospect is not supposed to come in after missing extended preseason action and be as good as Wentz has been. There should be a learning curve. Well, we might yet see some bumps in the road but Wentz has looked the part thus far. He has passed for 769 yards and five TDs without throwing a pick. He’s managed to make Nelson Agholor Fantasy relevant, which may be his most impressive feat. The Eagles are on a bye this week, but there is definitely streaming appeal moving forward. Wentz will also make an interesting DFS play when the matchup is right. If you gambled on his upside in a Dynasty league, you are feeling pretty good right now.

Dang! by Mac Miller featuring Anderson .Paak

Marcus Mariota (QB, Titans)- “How many mistakes do it take ’til you leave When I’m left with my hand on my face all red in the face looking at you like ‘Wait’.” We saw enough flashes from Mariota last season to realize he could be a special type of Fantasy player. Thus far in his sophomore season, he looks lost. He sports a 4:4 TD to INT ratio despite having two Fantasy friendly matchups in the past two weeks. He actually put up his best numbers of the year against perhaps the best defense in the NFL, the Vikings. The exotic smash mouth brand of football that the Titans are playing has meant a rebirth for DeMarco Murray and not much else. In seasonal formats, he’s a drop in shallow leagues and a stash in deeper ones, but definitely not worth starting until we see marked improvement. Same goes for DFS, he’s not a QB you can trust right now even if his salary makes him intriguing. There are still high hopes that he can become a QB1 asset in dynasty formats, so he remains a hold there.

Blunt After Blunt by Danny Brown (definite parental advisory on this one)

LeGarrette Blount (RB, Patriots) – “And I smoke…Blunt after blunt after blunt after blunt after blunt after blunt.” Blount has carried the Patriots offense during the first three weeks of the season and should be expected to on Sunday as well. He makes a fine play on DraftKings at just $5,000, considering we do not even know which Patriots QB is healthy enough to make the start. It might not be a bad time to sell high because the offense is likely to shift back to being pass-heavy when Tom Brady returns. Blount will still be in the RB2 range because of his TD potential, but it will be a challenge to predict his usage game to game. Plus, Dion Lewis could be returning by November and we all remember how dynamic he was for the entire offense.

Maybe by Janis Joplin

T.J. Yeldon (RB, Jaguars) – “Well I know that it just doesn’t ever seem to matter, baby. Oh honey, when I go out or what I’m trying to do. Can’t you see I’m still left here. And I’m holding on in needing you.” Yeldon had a golden opportunity in Weeks 1 and 2 to solidify his role as the Jaguars lead runner with Chris Ivory out of action. He did just the opposite, though the offensive line is a mess. He had a tough matchup in Week 1 against Green Bay, he still couldn’t pick up anything versus a questionable San Diego defense the following week. Ivory returned in Week 3 and neither player got anything going. It is clear after going out and paying for Ivory in the offseason that they intend to use him as a between the tackles bruiser, despite a solid, if unspectacular rookie season by Yeldon. Ivory is a battering ram type that has at least 820 yards rushing in each of the past three seasons and 18 total TDs over that span. He should carve out a two down role and be the back featured around the goal line. That leaves Yeldon likely on the other side of the committee, though he is expected to be the third down back. In dynasty leagues, the time is now to buy low on Yeldon given how poorly he’s looked and Ivory’s presence. The Jaguars face the Colts in London, which should be a recipe for getting the rushing attack going. Ivory is a backend RB2 at best in standard formats and Yeldon is best left for your bench until further notice.

So Emotional by Whitney Houston

Odell Beckham Jr. (WR, Giants)- “I remember the way that we touched I wish I didn’t like it so much I get so emotional, baby. Every time I think of you, I get so emotional, baby.” Beckham has never gone four games in a row without scoring a touchdown, which is what will happen if he doesn’t find the end zone against the Vikings on Monday night. Still, it is too early to panic about a receiver that has been otherworldly in his first two seasons. He is an unquestioned WR1 and likely Top 5 producer, but one has to wonder if his targets will dip slightly due to more competent weapons for Eli Manning than in previous seasons. Sterling Shepard has looked every bit as advertised and a healthy Victor Cruz is a strong third option. If you can buy low on Beckham, now would be the time to try. You’ll still have to pay through the nose because his upside is as high as anyone’s.

Big Ballin’ By Big Tymers

Terrelle Pryor (WR, Browns) – “Ballin everyday popin’ Dom P bottles. Ball til ya fall is the Ca$h Money motto. Flashy cars. Pretty broads.” Pryor has always been a freak athlete. After bouncing around the league as a QB, he wisely converted to WR last summer. He has a versatile skill set that was on display against the Dolphins in Week 3. With Josh Gordon checking himself into rehab and Corey Coleman out at least another three weeks, Pryor will be the focal point of the passing game and can expect significant targets. He’s on the WR3 radar and could very well remain there even after Coleman returns. The only downside in Dynasty leagues is that he’s already 27 years old. Given that his cost was likely very cheap, though, Pryor owners will take his late development all day long. Dial him up on DraftKings as a ridiculously cheap $4,300 option.

The Beast In Me by Johnny Cash

Jimmy Graham (TE, Seahawks) – “The beast in me, Has had to learn to live with pain. And how to shelter from the rain. And in the twinkling of an eye. Might have to be restrained. God help the beast in me.” There was once a hot debate about which TE was a better Dynasty asset, Jimmy Graham or Rob Gronkowski. Graham was traded to Seattle in April of 2015 and he did not look like a fit in the offense early on. Then came the ruptured achilles, which had owners getting the hammer and nails ready for his Fantasy coffin. Graham worked his way back from what was once a death sentence. After playing limited snaps in Week 1, he played almost of them in Week 2 and then had his strongest Seahawks outing with a 6-100-1 line in Week 3. If he is active on Sunday, he’s worth playing as a TE1 in seasonal leagues and DFS.

Changes by David Bowie

Dwayne Allen (TE, Colts) – “Ch-ch-Changes (Turn and face the strange). Don’t want to be a better man. Time may change me. But I can’t trace time.” After Coby Fleener departed for New Orleans, the hype on Allen was that of a TE1 option this summer. He does have 15 targets in three games, but he’s been out produced by Jack Doyle. Allen is a nice red zone target, but his upside was oversold as a receiving option, especially without volume. When Donte Moncrief is healthy, he’d be no better than a fourth or fifth option. Even in a potent passing attack, that is going to lead to inconsistent week to week performances. He is droppable in 10 and 12-team leagues. If you can make someone think they are buying low in your keeper league, that would be a nice coup.
