Time. The great equalizer. An enigma wrapped in a riddle, smothered in Taco Bell mild sauce. At this time last week I was in Vegas making my 8th trip to the ATM in 24 hours. This week I’m in Death Valley, making my 8th trip to the ATM in 24 hours. Two weeks ago I was saying to sell D’Andre Swift and buy Miles Sanders. This week Colonel Miles Sanders is on crutches, frying up chicken and I’m about to tell you D’Andre Swift is a great buy. What a difference a couple weeks time can make. As for Swift, I’d look to take advantage of possible recency bias and bye-week desperation. He’s coming off a game where he totaled just 51 yards on 17 touches and now the Lions head into their bye This is the time of season where fantasy teams with losing records can’t afford to be patient through bye weeks, meaning bargains can be had by fantasy teams with winning records. Hopefully that’s you! Swift likely isn’t going to handle 15+ carries often, but his volume in the Detroit passing game gives him a solid floor in any type of PPR league and he’s already shown RB1 upside. If you can weather his upcoming bye week, toss an offer out there and see what happens. Anyway, here’s some more players to buy or sell this week in fantasy football:

I dunno about you, but Halloween is more like a season for me. When we think about those people who leave their winter holiday ornaments up until April, I try to do them one better by leaving out my Halloween decorations until May. It’s kind of like my fantasy football approach: when everybody wants immediate results, I’m out here thinking long term. And by long term, I’m finally celebrating any faith I had in Kevin White finally coming to fruition. Or is it Mike White that I’m celebrating? I get confused at my old age. Quickly, to the recap!

What’s up Samhain Squad! Fresh off my week as FantasyPros’ #1 ranker in the galaxy — nay — the universe, I’m here spending this hallowed eve with you all pretending not to be hitting the rum all day. ACKSHUALLY, Donkey Teeth should have asked Roto Wan to do this post, so we coulda called it Hallow-Wan or Roto-Ween or something performative like that. ENYWHEY. Football — you’re not watching it today because you’re out with your kids trick or treating or maybe you’re still childless and you’re in a zombie pub crawl or you’re of a particular faith that doesn’t observe the banishing of evils or maybe you’re welcoming evils or whatever you gotta do. You do you! Let’s grab the sage and get smudging folx, we’ve got some invited and uninvited guests to manage this week.

The goal of this article is to find WRs to fade and buy based on how many fantasy points their opponent allows in the slot vs. out wide. In today’s article we will review the key out wide matchups for week 8. To keep up with the latest defensive trends we updated the analysis to only include the last 5 weeks.

The below chart breaks down where each team allows their fantasy points to WRs and is listed from the most to the least amount of fantasy points allowed out wide to WRs this season.

I was working in the lab, late one night. When my eyes beheld an eerie sight. For my monster on his slab began to rise and suddenly to my surprise… He did the Mash. The Monster Mash

Just take these wise words in for a moment. Breathe them in. The monster… he did the mash. And don’t we all do the mash sometimes, much to the chagrin and sometimes excitement to our contemporaries? Yes, even sometimes it will truly be a “graveyard smash”. 

What was this section about? Oh uh Halloween injury report. Right. There was a thread here but I got carried away in the poetry of Bobby “Boris” Pickett & The Crypt Kickers (Side note: Here’s a great TV performance of Bobby Pickett doing the Monster Mash, a real masterclass in making really weird faces and being a weirdo).

The teams who will have some extra trick-or-treating time on bye this week are the Ravens and the Raiders. See ya next week! 

Let’s get into this week’s horror show!

With just three weeks of games — and two FAAB runs — left until the first Cutline, the competition is heating up in the 2021 RazzBowl! How does the Top Ten look after last week’s bye-ridden slate? Who blew the last of their FAAB without a runner-up bid? Who flew up the standings, and who dropped like a rock? All this and more is waiting for you inside! So pop the cork on a little frizzante arneis and join me as we explore the current state of RazzBowl 3!

The story leading into this game was Green Bay being without their top wide receivers in Davante Adams and Allen Lazard who are both on the reserve/Covid list. The narrative was that there would be no way they could beat the undefeated Arizona Cardinals without their weapons. The moral of the story ended up being never count out Aaron Rodgers. Even without his best receiving weapons, Rodgers was able to battle the whole game, make the plays when he needed to, and pull out the upset victory for the Packers.

*Buy, Sell, Holds released by Anime Donkey prior to week 7—Amine Donkey says ignore the Miles Sanders buy due to injury*

“But Donkey Teeth, didn’t you just provide us with very in-depth and meticulously curated positional rest of season rankings for 2021 fantasy football, week 7, only two days ago?” Why yes, dear reader, and thank you for noticing. This is not an error, nor an oversight. It was all very carefully thought out during my recent peyote ceremony with some local natives. While I do get the positional rest of season rankings to the press promptly each and every Tuesday, prior to waivers and FAAB, I also feel it’s important to provide more context later in the week to assist in trade negotiations and other important roster decisions. If you desperately need a running back and are rostering all of Keenan Allen, D.J. Moore and Diontae Johnson then my positional breakdown doesn’t help you to construct the perfectly reasonable trade offer for Darrell Henderson, James Robinson or Joe Mixon. Now we also have the overall rankings table below to view positional valuations relative to other positions, while still having the option to sort by individual positions. The best of both worlds, which I tasted during that peyote trip. And over the past two days, I’ve also taken more time to refine these rankings after digesting more of the week one action and listening to some very valuable community feedback from you intelligent readers. The positional rankings from earlier in the week also delve a bit deeper into the rankings compared to this overall top 150 provided below. Anyway, here’s my sortable rest of season rankings for half PPR 2021 fantasy football:

Air Yards are the Gordon Ramsey of fantasy receiving stats. They tell us exactly what was right and clearly what was wrong with how a receiver performed in a given week. Often, it’s not easy to hear. But you as a fantasy manager need to pay attention to the under-the-hood numbers from your receivers instead of just blindly trusting the box score results, you donkey. 

Each week, this column will dissect air yards for actionable info in the weeks to come. For Week 8, we will do a quick analysis of the list of the 65 wide receivers who finished last week with at least 30 air yards.
