The Marksmen Range

Note – This recording was done on Wednesday Dec 9th prior to numerous changes to player health and COVID considerations

The Marksmen team up to bring you a variety of players to Start or Sit in week 14. Likely the first week of your fantasy playoffs should you have the good fortune to be in contention. The team looks to take you through a few recommended players which may be lingering on your mind as a flex level decision and even some that may rise to the level of an RB2/WR2 this week. As in all weeks we have players who are not in optimal spots, identifying and supporting some of these players could be key to winning your QF matchup and advancing to the Semi’s in season long play.

Trending UP:

Mike Evans: I was on board the sell train on Evans, his production had dropped, Antonio Brown was in town and Fournette was finally healthy. Boy was I wrong; Mike Evans has actually improved tremendously in his last 3 weeks, posting 16.7, 13.4 and 18.5 with 11,9,9 targets in those games. I thought with the deep throw struggles Brady was having this year would affect Evans, but it did not.  He should be in your lineups after his week 13 BYE as they play MIN, ATL, DET.

Devante Parker: Don’t look now, but Parker is finally starting to heat up. I personally rather have the Fitzmagic tossing him the pigskin; he seems to understand that Parker is an elite level talent. In his last two games Parker has posted a 6/9 for 15.10 points and 8/14 for 15.9 points. I am really excited about Parker finally starting to show up again as people were pretty distraught with his performances 4 games in a row prior. All of Miamis games are going to be competitive from here on out, look to see him get targeted 🎯 more, as the games become increasingly important.

Antonio Gibson: Gibson has scored the 4th most fantasy points in the last 4 weeks combined. His workload on the ground has gone up, up and up. He was around 6 and has made his way to around 20 rushes per game. I have ZERO Gibson shares and it makes me cry into my pillow every night… not really, but almost! I will be targeting him in drafts next year like I target stuffing during thanksgiving, LOAD THE GRAVY.

David Montgomery: I know, it’s one good game, but did you watch him? I have not seen that burst in a long time from my guy Monty and it renewed a forgotten faith. He went off in his return from injury with 103 yards on 11 attempts, at 9.36 yards per carry. Oh and by the way, have you seen his schedule for ROS? Det, Hou, Min and Jacksonville, wow that’s probably the best schedule for any back remaining #drool.

Hunter Henry: In the last 4 weeks, there has only been one tight end better than Henry, and that’s Kelce. Henry’s targets have ranged in the area of 6-10 in those games and he seems to be a favorite target for Justin Herbert. Henry has rounded into form and brings a consistent 10 point range with him, that’s all anyone can really ask of their tight ends up to this point, right?

Trending DOWN:

Christian Kirk: Kirk started the season off slow, and then went on a heater from weeks 5-9. After that he cooled back down, He is getting around 6 targets a game lately, which is not bad, but his routes are not being very effective down field and he has not gotten in the end zone lately. I’m sorry people, but if you can afford to bench him, I would, he is just not that reliable.

Travis Fulgham: This one pains me, I was so excited about Fulgham, and he looked great and explosive, for a while. In the last 3 games he has put up 1.3, 1.3 and 2.6 points. To be fair both the 1.3 games were monsoons, but the best WRs in football still manage to produce, no matter the weather. Fulgham is hurting partially by other weapons coming back (even though they are struggling as well), but mainly from the bad play under center. Wentz has been indecisive and has over thrown more players than I have seen in a while. I’m boggled to why they don’t give Hurts a shot at this point. Anyway, you can’t drop Fulgham, but I would only be starting him in a tight spot.

Leonard Fournette: Atrocious? Is that an accurate enough description? Statistically Fournette is droppable. He is essentially unstartable at this point. He has only posted double digit performances twice this year, although he had missed 3 games. His volume is minimal and he is game script dependent AT BEST. I can’t trust him in any starting lineup and neither should you.

Salvon Ahmed: Everyone was praising Ahmed, after one decent performance of 21 rushes for 85 yards and a TD. He has since fallen off hard and missed last week due to injury. I see Gaskin returning next week and assuming that lead role he had under wraps all season and was solid in doing so, watch Gaskin finish off the season as a SOLID RB2. I think it’s time to bench/drop Ahmed and move on to greener pastures.

Darrell Henderson Jr: Henderson is just a rotation guy at this point; his early year burst has disappeared. Henderson has been a liability if you have started him recently, well actually any time after week six. Malcolm Brown and Henderson have such a low floor that they are not playable, the only guy I would have any hope is the upside of rookie Cam Akers, but even then I would not be comfortable starting him at this point either.

Noah Fant: I was so excited to see Fant’s blowup year with all the weapons and Lock, but it just has not fermented well… other than week 1 and week 2, Fant has not had any fantasy relevance at all. With only 2 TDs on the year, I have to stop and think to myself, is he even worth rostering at this point? Then I see Anthony Firkser at the top of the available TEs and decide, “I’d rather die on this hill than pick him up!” So be it, Fant can keep my bench warm the rest of the season.
