H and Dicky’s Corner: Weekly Fantasy Predictions


Solid Gold:

Cameron Newton-QB, Car —  Yeah, yeah Cam played a little crappy against the Bears. SO WHAT? He’s Cam Newton. He will bounce back this week and we wouldn’t be surprised if he dropped 4 TDs on us. Keep him in your starting lineup this week.

Le’Veon Bell-RB, Pit — Bell could probably be on here every week, but this week against an average Detroit defense, he will most likely eat like Zeke. The Steelers are rolling off two big wins against Cincy and Kansas City, and Bell will be at the forefront of the attack for the black and gold.

Mike Evans-WR, TB — Evans is arguably the most consistent receiver in the NFL. He is the number one target in Tampa Bay, and Jameis’ love affair with being involved in shootouts could mean mad points for Evans. Evans should be starting in your lineup for awhile.

Rob Gronkowski-TE, NE —  Gronk is Tom Brady’s favorite target. He’s pretty much a lock to get at least 50 yards and a touchdown every game. Sure he’s injury prone, but you can’t worry about that. He’s a TE1 this week against the Chargers.


Andy Dalton-QB, Cin — Andy Dalton has for the most part stayed under the radar this year. He hasn’t really had a crazy game so far. We predict that will change this sunday against the Colts. They will bounce back from a tough loss to the Steelers, and Dalton will get back on track as well.

Javorious Allen-RB, Bal — Javorious Allen has had a very solid year to date. Against a solid Dolphins Defense, it will be interesting. As long as Allen reaches the end-zone, he’ll have solid to star fantasy production.

Nelson Agholor-WR, Phi — Nelson Agholor has found the end zone in all but two games this season. Against the 49ers, He’ll most likely find the end zone again. Carson Wentz will pick apart their defense, and Agholor will benefit from it.

Hunter Henry-TE, LAC — Hunter Henry is taking over a spot that has been Antonio Gates’ since 2003. Philip Rivers is still a very Capable QB who can sling it with the best of them. Henry doesn’t attract much attention, which means less coverage, and more catches.


Alex Smith-QB, KC — We know what you’re thinking. “Wait hasn’t that guy done really good?” You would be right, but we have one word for you; Denver. Denver’s defense is strangling, and they have a pro-bowler at nearly every position. Denver is built to demolish teams like Kansas City. We warned you now.

Lamar Miller-RB, Hou — Miller has had an alright season, but this week, it will be anything but alright. Seattle boasts arguably the best defense in the league(Denver is also in that debate), and they shut all run games down. He’s at best a flex option this week.

Tyreek Hill-WR, KC — We usually don’t put two players of the same team, but this week could be bad for the chiefs. They’re on a 2 game losing streak, and it’s practically a no-fly zone in Denver. Don’t expect Hill to put any big numbers.

Jordan Reed-TE, Wsh — Reed is so inconsistent, we wouldn’t start him any week. Last week’s performance was a once a year thing, and knowing Reed, he’ll most likely just get hurt. Find a better option at TE for this week.

Injury Report:

Carson Palmer — Palmer broke his left arm this past Sunday against the Rams.

Marshawn Lynch — Lynch is not hurt this week, however, he has been suspended one game.

Stefon Diggs, Devin Funchess, Michael Thomas, Golden Tate, Emmanuel Sanders — All of these receivers are listed as questionable for week 8.
