Fantasy Mailbag 2016: Week 8

Prior to Arian Foster’s signing in the summer, Jay Ajayi seemed like potential breakout because of Adam Gase’s system and a lack of competition at the position. Then Foster happened, Ajayi reacted poorly, and Kenyan Drake had sleeper aspirations. Fast Forward to now >>>


Foster has retired. Drake is…hey, where is Drake? And Ajayi has recorded back-to-back weeks of 200+ rush yards. If you saw that coming when the season started, STOP IT NO YOU DIDN’T! Ajayi is on a bye this week, but expect him to continue seeing 20 touches or more going forward.

Mail Time!


RB – Frank Gore is going to be your guy this weekend. Outside of not trusting the Vikings offense, Frank Gore is the safe bet for his consistency…which bodes well against a very average run defense.

WR – Expect Vernon Hargreaves to cover Amari Cooper, which leads the one of the league’s touchdown leaders, Michael Crabtree, to eat against either Alterraun Verner and Brent Grimes.



Sorry I was late on the Allen Robinson portion of your question. Randall Cobb will be your best choice, after the fact. He has seen double-digit targets in each of the last 3 weeks and won’t be drawing Desmond Trufant. Falcons-Packers has shootout potential too.



Don’t love your options but Demaryius Targaryen has the best matchup and is far more talented than the either two, despite his numbers in the previous meeting.



Don’t love your options either, but you’re leaning the right way…Jordan Matthews is your guy.
