Spotlight: Jeremy Maclin

2015 fantasy football player spotlights

Jeremy Maclin

3/22/2015: I pumped up Jeremy Maclin in a major way last off-season, but in all fairness, I pumped up Nick Foles and that Eagles passing attack as well, which included LeSean McCoy. While that Eagles offense surprised in both good and bad ways last year, Maclin sure showed up, pulling in 85 balls for 1,300+ and 10TDs… and while… Read Spotlight

Hey Starters Nation:

Looking for an early 2015 Fantasy Football Mock Draft / Rankings heading into 2015? This is a dynasty mock draft, so keep in mind that players like Marshawn Lynch, Peyton Manning, Matt Forte, among others, are going to fall much, much further than they would in a early 2015 fantasy football yearly-league mock draft, but this mock draft should be rather useful to all fantasy leaguers, as for the most part things in redraft and dynasty can often times line-up rather well entering January. On that note, enjoy!

ARTICLE: Who are the top 20 Dynasty Fantasy Football Players for 2015?

Are you a dynasty fantasy football nut in need of some 2015 fantasy football content? Well, here is a writeup on the Top 20 Fantasy Football Dynasty Players heading into 2015 and beyond. Note, this is not a fantasy football mock draft, it is more of a value-based board, meaning you will find Aaron Rodgers and Andrew Luck a lot higher than you’d want to draft them, which ultimately means that I’m suggesting that their values are fantastic when faced off against their early 2015 Average Draft Positions (ADPs). So, again, this is NOT a mock draft, but in many cases will mirror where mocks have some of the players going in early mocks. Enjoy.View Top 20 Dynasty Players

NEWS: Sammy Watkins (hip) limited on Wednesday, but expected to play Week 14?

SMITTY: The key word is “expected” here, so be sure to check back with our news wire here, as well as be dialed into our Smart Alerts. Despite the dip in production as of late, which relates to the injury, we like Watkins as a sneaky WR3 that could play like a high-end WR2 down the stretch. If your league allows for trading, he is a great buy-low. Looking for Week 14 Power Rankings?

NEWS: Bills-Jets game in Week 12 will not be played in Buffalo; the game might be played elsewhere on Monday night.

SMITTY: Stay tuned on this on! Looking for Week 12 Power Rankings?

NEWS: Sammy Watkins, Lamar Miller, Bryce Brown and Fred Jackson updates…

SMITTY: UPDATE: Bryce Brown will start at RB for the Dolphins tonight, and he is a sneaky flex play for sure. Anything can happen with these RBBCs, though, so don't sit a solid play for Brown or anything, but don't be afraid to use him either (if in need). Anthony Dixon will get a shot to try and prove to be the hot hand in this game, and that's what makes this kind of a risk from all sides. It looks like Fred Jackson will sit this one, but Sammy Watkins (groin) is a go, and so is Lamar Miller, but he is said to possibly looking at a snap count, so be careful playing him if you have more secure options.

PREVIOUS NEWS: As of now, Watkins and Miller are expected to play, with Miller looking somewhat limited and maybe set to be in a RBBC rotation… F-Jax isn't likely to play, which makes Anthony Dixon and Bryce Brown players to grab if you’re in need at the position. That will likely be an even split unless one of the two becomes the ‘hot hand’ in this one. Looking for Week 11 Power Rankings?

NEWS: Sammy Watkins very questionable for Week 10?

SMITTY: The rising star is questionable with a groin injury, and Bills coach Doug Marrone doesn’t sound optimistic about the receiver’s chances of practicing on Saturday, as he was asked about his odds of practicing on Saturday: “No, I don’t think it is until the trainers tell me that he can go,” said Marrone. “The guy can’t practice.” Stay tuned. Looking for Week 10 Power Rankings?

NEWS: Sammy Watkins good to go for Week 10?

SMITTY: It looks like his groin injury won’t hold him out of Week 10, and he is a fine start moving forward. In fact, while he is likely a fantasy WR3 for those that own him, he could very well continue to play like a fantasy WR2 the rest of the way. Dynasty league owners have to be excited about this kid’s future/upside. Checkout where we have Sammy Watkins ranked on our Week 10 Power Rankings.

NEWS: Calvin Johnson expected to play Week 5; will he be effective?

SMITTY: He is set as ‘questionable’ for Week 5 with the ankle, but a couple sources now expect Calvin to play. How effective will be be this week, though? Will he once again be a decoy? The bottom line is this… if he plays, you have to run him out onto the field. Even as a projected decoy in the past, he always found a way to pull in big numbers. Just stay close to both our news wire and our Smart Alerts, as things could change directions during warm-ups. Whether Calvin is out or not, and even more so if he is, Reggie Bush could explode, as the team is without Joique Bell this week, and they need someone catching passes. Golden Tate is also set for a huge game if Calvin sits, but he is an excellent start this week even if Calvin goes. For more on this game, view your Smart Alerts that we just sent out on this, as we talk a bit about Sammy Watkins and Eric Ebron heading into this week.
