H and Dicky’s Corner: Weekly Fantasy Predictions


With two weeks behind us, the 2017 NFL season is off to a great start (minus a Bengals and Texans match-up). Michael Crabtree made people question who the “number one” receiver is in Oakland. C.J. Anderson, Emmanuel Sanders and the Broncos defense absolutely destroyed the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday. Last but certainly not least, Tom Brady had a bounce back week where he put up 30 fantasy points backed by 447 yards passing and three touchdowns against the Saints.

In week three, we expect a lot of good games and a lot of players to put up big numbers.

Solid Gold

Kareem Hunt-RB, KC — Kareem Hunt is the real deal. Sure he might still have to work out some freshman kinks, but he’s a great football player in an offense that is perfect for his play style. He’ll get a great share of touches as the starting back, and he’ll produce every week.

Antonio Brown-WR, Pit — Brown came back to earth in week 2 after a 182-yard week 1. Brown is one of the best receivers in the NFL, and holds a ton of target share in the Steel City. Expect nothing less than prime production numbers from this fantasy stud.

Derek Carr-QB, Oak — Derek Carr is surrounded with a great O-line and a star-studded receiving core. We didn’t even get to talking about him yet. Carr is one of the best QB’s in the NFL and he’s still getting better. In a high-powered offense, Carr will rack up yards and toss tuddies for days.


Trevor Siemian-QB, Den — There is a ton of risk here. Siemian is doing a fine job of leading the broncos, and when his receivers are running full routes and catching balls, he’ll put up starting QB numbers. But there’s a chance that might not happen. and he’ll do bad if it doesn’t happen. Denver plays Buffalo and their atrocious defense, so chances are high that he’ll do great. this is definitely one of our more iffy picks.

Dalvin Cook-RB, Min — Cook is 3rd in rushing yards this season, as a rookie. That means he’s doing great right now, and he’s only bound to get better. He has transformed from competing with Latavius Murray for touches to being the undisputed starter. He’s a quality start in all leagues and should continue to rack up the yards. Hopefully TD’s will follow.

JJ Nelson-WR, Ari — This speedy Arizona receiver is a great flex option and could even be a WR2. He has snagged a TD each of the last two weeks and gets a great share of targets from veteran QB Carson Palmer.


Stefon Diggs-WR, Min — Diggs breakout week 1 performance will only happen once or twice a year. and he’s a very risky boom or bust receiver. With the QB situation in Minnesota, it would be wise to keep him stashed until Sam Bradford comes back. in deeper leagues, he could possibly be a flex option.

Russell Wilson-QB, Sea — Wilson is still the starting QB for the Seahawks, and he can pass and run the pigskin. He just hasn’t been the Russ we know the past few seasons. He still makes great decisions with the ball, but his TD count is way lower than it should be, and he records mediocre yardage. There are just better options to use.

LeSean McCoy-RB, Buf — The only reason Shady is on this list is because the Bills play the Denver Broncos. This past week, the Broncos feasted on Ezekiel Elliot and the Cowboys. And their offense is starting to figure things out. The Bills could be running into a freight train in the Broncos, and Shady will be taking most of the blows.
