    Samuels and Montgomery

    Two weeks ago, Montgomery could have been had in the trade market for just about nothing. After two strong games (24.70 and 22.60 Fantasy points), he now ranks 20th in RB scoring (12.61 FPPG). Montgomery is on pace for 1,078 combined yards with ten TDs and 36 catches while averaging 16.3 touches per game. The Lions fell to 32nd in RB defense (32.44 FPPG) after allowing over 30.0 Fantasy points to RBs in each of their last five games. Detroit allows 4.7 yards per rush with RBs scoring 12 TDs. Montgomery should continue on his upside trend in this favorable matchup, but he does need the Bears to play better offensively to create more scoring chances.

    Singletary broke through with an impact game (140 combined yards with one TD and three catches) with career-high 23 touches. The Bills had him on the field for two-third of their plays over the last two games. He’s gaining 6.7 yards per rush and 8.6 yards per catch. The Browns are 24th in RB defense (26.05 FPPG), with one team having a high level of success (SF – 313 combined yards with three TDs and five catches). RBs gain 4.9 yards per rush against Cleveland with RB scoring six TDs. Moving in a positive direction with a three-down opportunity. Viable based on his salary, matchup, and his expected opportunity.

    The script for Hooper is so much clearer for Hooper going forward. The Falcons have an elite WR1 and strength and explosiveness with their WR2, which means defenses don’t game plan to stop Hooper. They are content with him making small plays while hoping to slow him down in certain moments of the game. Hooper has a TD in three straight games and five TDs in his previous six starts. He scored over 14.50 Fantasy points in PPR leagues in seven of his eight games with the most success in three games (6/66/2, 9/130, and 8/117/1). Last year he caught eight passes for 54 yards on nine targets in two games against the Saints. New Orleans is 11th in TE defense (9.91 FPPG – 32/403/1 on 45 targets) with five teams scoring fewer than ten Fantasy points. The Seahawks are the only team to have success at TE (7/71/1) vs. the Saints. This matchup isn’t ideal, but game score should lead to a lot of balls in the air for the Falcons. I expect only a midteen score while drawing some ownership attention in the daily games.

    Thanks Shawn!

    I actually did snag Montgomery three weeks ago for next to nothing!

    Is Hooper the better TE going forward v. Henry?

    I’d say the Falcons should throw more while the Chargers rely a lot on their RBs. Henry is probably the better player career-wise if can stay healthy.
