Sink or Swim: Week 16

Rick Graham dives into the players he thinks will rise to the occasion and which could take a fall for Week 16.

Sink or Swim: Week 15

QUARTERBACK SWIM Case Keenum (Minnesota Vikings): At this point, there is no reason to think Keenum is going to cool off anytime soon. He’s been one of the most steady QB1’s going since the teams week 9 bye and gets a nice match up against a Bengals defense that has been allowing big yardage through the […]

Sink or Swim: Week 14

QUARTERBACK SWIM Jared Goff (Los Angeles Rams):  This game has shootout written all over it, which is good news for both QB’s fantasy potential, with Goff looking at a potential negative game script for once. The Eagles pass defense isn’t as great as the numbers show, as they have struggled against capable QB’s this season. […]

Sink or Swim: Week 13

QUARTERBACK SWIM Tyrod Taylor (Buffalo Bills):  Taylor should be a safe option this week as the game script will probably ask him to do more than most weeks. The potential upside here comes with the Patriots defense focusing on playing more zone defense this week, something they have gone away from since the early part […]

Sink or Swim: Week 12

QUARTERBACK SWIM Matt Ryan (Atlanta Falcons): While disappointing most weeks, Ryan has still been a solid back-end QB1 more often than not and is heading into his easiest match up of the season, a defense that got destroyed by Matt Moore last weekend. His floor remains steady this week while also having significant upside.

Sink or Swim: Week 11

QUARTERBACK SWIM Philip Rivers (Los Angeles Chargers): Despite being in the concussion protocol, Rivers expects to play this weekend and he should be in for a good day against a Bills team that is rapidly becoming more and more dysfunctional. If he is active on Sunday, he should be started as a solid QB1 option.

Sink or Swim: Week 10

QUARTERBACK SWIM Ben Roethlisberger (Pittsburgh Steelers): You can hold on to the “Ben on the road” narrative, but he and the Steelers offense were really starting to pick up before the bye, and I expect them to come out firing in this easy match up. This Colts defense is in shambles per usual, and won’t be […]

Sink or Swim: Week 9

QUARTERBACK SWIM Jared Goff (Los Angeles Rams): The Giants have all of a sudden become the worse passing defense in football, allowing each opposing QB to finish as a QB1 over the past 4 weeks. The Rams have been one of the higher scoring offenses, with Goff having QB1 fantasy value when able to capitalize […]

Sink or Swim: Week 8

Last week was a bit of a step back after a positive week 6. That actually may be an understatement, as almost no one “swam” as they were supposed to. The streaming QB’s were all for the most part disastrous,  on Sunday. Outside of Alvin Kamara, the RB’s were terrible as well, with Adrian Peterson […]

Sink or Swim: Week 7

Overall, last weeks picks were mostly successful, with a few outliers here and there. Marshawn Lynch disappointed and continues to do so on a week to week basis. Jay Ajayi ran like his life depended on it, ripping off 130 yards on the ground to help kick-start the Dolphins offense. Tyrell Williams and Jamison Crowder are […]
