Back to review the crucial week 13 in the NFL, B_Don and Donkey Teeth mix up the order of the show and start with the many A**holes of the Week as we discuss some of the happenings from the week that was in the NFL. From player usage to coaching errors to refs to anything else that affected teams in week 13, we go over it all before we look into the #RazzBowl playoffs. 

There weren’t many big injuries in week 13 thankfully, but those teams that lost Antonio Gibson might disagree. We discuss the WFT RB situation and whether we think you can start anyone in that backfield. Speaking of messy RB situations, the Falcons have joined the ranks of teams utilizing RBs in such a way that ruins fantasy value for all of us. 

B_Don asks DT about his boy Baker Mayfield, and where he fits among QBs for the ROS. There was more QB talk than normal as it seems to be the biggest point of change to review. Jalen Hurts is going to get the nod for the Eagles over Carson Wentz. Kyler hasn’t quite been the same since the injury. Then, we look at a couple rookie QBs in Herbert and Tua to examine how we would use them in week 14 and for the rest of the season. One last thing, why isn’t Gardner Minshew starting?

Your WR top 80 14.0 is here!  This is a playoff specific edition of the WR ranks, with extra weight given to the next 3 matchups specifically. Nothing matters but the path ahead so a few players jumped up because of their schedule. Additionally guys who are currently injured might as well be off the list, although some are straggling around like Kenny Golladay, but there is no guarantee he’ll suit up for our fantasy teams.  

This list is not league or format specific, but it is based on 2020 rest-of-season projection only. When thinking through tiers and rankings I asked myself simply – “all things considered who would I rather have on my roster?”

Your WR top 80 13.0 is here!  Even though week 12 hasn’t ended yet, we’re on to the final countdown. If you’re 7-5 or better you can probably coast but a playoff seed may be on the line. If you’re rolling at 6-6 or in some leagues maybe even 5-7 this is do or die. Obviously “rest of season” doesn’t really mean much with one game left in the regular season but this is still a relative ranking of the best WRs in our game. As a rule, injuries will always bump guys down. I am generally pessimistic that players will return on time at full strength without a setback.

Your WR top 80 12.0 is here! Despite DeAndre Hopkins’ heroics, Davante Adams remains in a tier all his own. Don’t worry, there are still plenty of fantastic options to choose from in tier 2. As a rule, injuries will always bump guys down. I am generally pessimistic that players will return on time at full strength without a setback.

Team: Minnesota Vikings

Opponent: Green Bay Packers

WR1: Adam Thielen

Shadow Coverage Matchup: Jaire Alexander

Adam Thielen vs. Shadow Coverage
Opponent Games Rec Yards TDs PPG
All Other Opponents 26 5.4 66.4 0.6 12.8
Vs. Shadow Coverage 8 5.8 82.4 0.9 16.4
Vs. Jaire Alexander 2 7 117.5 1.5 24.3

Historical Production vs. Shadow Coverage

Adam Thielen has been one of the best WRs when facing shadow coverage throughout his career. This includes three great performances in 2020 vs. Jaire Alexander in week 1 (6-110-2), Bradley Roby in week 4 (8-114-1) and A.J. Terrell (3-51-1). Now I am not going to sit here and say this is the murderers row of cornerbacks, but even before 2020 Thielen has been very consistent when facing shadow coverage which is reflected in his 16.4 PPG.

Season Long Recommendation – Start

To say Adam Thielen has Jaire Alexander’s number is an understatement. In 2 career games in his coverage Thielen has dominated him securing 7 – 117.5 – 1.5 while averaging a robust 24.3 PPG. This game will be in Lambeau and early indication is it will be cold and windy. This will be the first time Thielen will face Alexander in shadow coverage on the road so maybe another 20 point performance is out of the question. That being said, with Green Bay 6-point favorites the expectation is the Vikings will need to throw early and often to keep up. That is why Thielen is a must start season long player.

DFS – Price FD $7,700 / DK $7,200

Adam Thielen is rated as a top 5 WR on both sites meaning he will need to have another monster game to return value for you in week 8. His historical production vs. Alexander suggests that he could do it again, but in 2/3 games in Green Bay he has been held under 100 yards and had zero touchdowns. Call it a hunch but Thielen might be a DFS fade this week on the road. Players I would pivot to include A.J Brown vs. CIN and Tyreek Hill vs. NYJ.

Your WR top 80 9.0 is here! Davante Adams back on top after a sensational week. As a rule, injuries will always bump guys down. I am generally pessimistic that players will return on time at full strength without a setback.

Your WR top 80 8.0 is here! We’re getting some studs back playing on the field, so that’s a bonus to the upper tier. As a rule, injuries will always bump guys down. I am generally pessimistic that players will return on time at full strength without a setback.

The week 7 waiver landscape is as barren as the Gobi desert. No major injuries opened up prime starting spots for fantasy teams. There are some rookies begging to be added on merit alone, however. And this is the best type of add, because these are players earning their volume. Guys like Higgins and Patrick should see their roles increase and can be real assets down the line. Conversely, players who get a bump simply due to injury may not capitalize on their touches (see: Mattison, Alexander)

B_Don and Donkey Teeth are back to review week 6 as they await the double header of Monday Night Football. We start by going over some injuries and talk about their replacements legitimacy. The Eagles continue to lose offense weapons with Miles Sanders and Zach Ertz possibly missing time. Raheem Mostert was off to a hot start before going down with an ankle injury (we now know it was a high ankle sprain and he’s likely heading to the IR). Then, we talk about Baker Mayfield’s “benching” and how we view the young QB moving forward. 

Speaking of young players, the guys talk move on to discuss the NFL ROY and the fantasy football ROY. Plenty of candidates from James Robinson, Justin Jefferson, CeeDee Lamb, Justin Herbert, Clyde Edwards-Helaire, and more. We finish up the show talking about some potential waiver wire targets and where they rank among some of the other big performers from week 6. The two discuss the Bengals WR situation, the Lions and Ravens RB situation, Travis Fulgham, Tee Higgins, Preston Williams, and o yeah, we talk about Le’Veon.
