QB – Nick Foles – PHI – Not Fool’s Gold: It’s Foles Gold

As a Patriots fan, I can say with a firm stance that you should not underestimate Nick Foles. This dude f*cks. As a fantasy owner, you should not either. We have seen him get hot at random times and be extremely streaky. I think there’s a strong chance he shows up YUGE against the Texans in Week 16. The Texans have an elite run defense so the Eagles may be forced to throw more. In the past three weeks, Houston has allowed an average of 40.7 passing attempts per game. The Texans over the last four weeks have allowed fifth most passing attempts, fifth-most completions, second-most passing yards, and seventh-most fantasy points to the QB position. The last four quarterbacks they have played have all-thrown for 250 yards and three of them have thrown for more than 300 yards. Houston allows two passing touchdowns per game on the road on average this season. Three times in Foles’ lustrious career has he had 40 passing attempts at home. He averages 26 fantasy points per game in those outings. Nick Foles is a motherf*cking champion. 

RB – Jamaal Williams – GB – We’ve Got Jamaal Of Them

A-ARON has been put on injured reserve, so it’s time for Jamaal Williams. He rushed for 55 yards and a touchdown on 12 carries and added 42 yards on Sunday. Seems ironic that Williams finally gets to take on the load of RB work after Mike McCarthy got canned. Williams is the new go-to guy. The New York Jets this season have allowed 125 yards per game and 118 yards per game over their last three. That in addition to allowing 4.5 yards per carry. The Jets allow 28 rushing attempts per game to opposing RBs. Expect Jamaal to get all the carries, with the Packers just having Kapri Bibbs as the only other running back. Any running back not named Frank Gore that has gotten 15 carries versus the Jets has scored double-digit fantasy points versus the Jets.

WR – Robby Anderson – NYJ – Get Away From The Cop Speed 🚔🚔🚔

Kid’s got wheels. I talked him up last week on the Kill, Marry, Chill, and Anderson was red-hot. Over the past four weeks, the Packers have allowed the ninth-most fantasy points to the WR position. Anderson has now seen over the past nine games an average of 6.89 targets per game. On the year Green Bay gives up the 3rd most fantasy points to the WR position. 

TE – Blake Jarwin – DAL – My Offseason Tight End Sleeper 💤💤💤

FINALLY, IT’S #BLAKEJARWINSZN. I talked this guy up this offseason and finally, he is showing up. Jarwin has now had back to back games with seven targets for the Cowboys. Prescott continually seems to look his way. The matchup this upcoming week is also great versus the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. They have allowed the eighth-most fantasy points per game to the tight end position this season. The Buccaneers have allowed the fourth-most receptions to tight ends, and fifth-most targets to the TE this season. Jarwin has run the 7th most routes out of all tight ends and has an average yards per route run of 1.51 over the past two weeks. That is the sixth-highest of any TE with at least 12 targets over the last two weeks.
