Tomorrow’s Moves Today – Week 4: Leveraging SOS and Team-Level Trends to Stay Ahead of the Competition

Tomorrow’s Moves Today uses the Strength of Schedule Streaming App to identify team positional units with favorable/unfavorable upcoming schedules and players on related teams that should be targeted or avoided.

Welcome to the Week 4 edition of Tomorrow’s Moves Today! On a weekly basis, we’ll look ahead to find positional units with favorable upcoming schedules. Likewise, we’ll identify positional units that stand before an oncoming gauntlet. The idea here is to be a week ahead of our league mates by adding players before it’s clear that success is in their range of outcomes and dropping or trading players before their stock will plummet.

For more information on how the SoS Streaming App calculates strength of schedule (SoS), please check out this article.

Weeks 5 Through 8

Quarterback

  • Dak Prescott and the revamped Cowboys offense aren’t slowing down anytime soon. If there’s an owner in your league that doesn’t realize what they have in Prescott, consider taking him off their hands.
  • Jacoby Brissett has been more competent than you may realize and could be streamed in multiple upcoming weeks.
  • Kirk Cousins might look like an appealing add, he isn’t. Eli Manning has produced more expected points in 2019.  Keep in mind that Manning played in just two games.

Running Back

 

  • Dalvin Cook has been awesome and is averaging 16.4 expected per points game.
    • He’s been efficient, beating this average by nearly 10 points each week.
    • If you’re considering selling high, don’t. You’ll be attempting to unload a player whose momentum will carry.
  • Per usual, it’s hard to know what to do with New England’s RBs. Nonetheless, the unit should accumulate a decent amount of fantasy points in the coming weeks. Damien Harris might be available and could be a worthwhile player to churn through your roster. His odds of paying off remain low, but it’s hard to find another player at Harris’ low opportunity cost that could deliver comparable upside if things break right.
  • Wayne Gallman was one of the most-added players in fantasy after being thrust into New York’s lead back role this week. Replacing Saquon Barkley is a tall enough task; facing a stingy slate of opponents only makes matters worse. If he fares well this weekend, it might be a good time to float out some trade offers.

Wide Receiver

  • The Colts face an easy upcoming schedule, but there isn’t a clear option behind T.Y. Hilton.
  • The Vikings just aren’t passing enough to support Adam Thielen and Stefon Diggs as the receivers that fantasy owners thought they were drafting. Unless the team begins to air it out more, the green schedule the team opposes will be meaningless.
  • 2019 will most likely go down as a major disappointment for Juju Smith-Schuster owners. He and Mason Rudolph connected on a handful of passes in Week 3, but the Steelers’ upcoming schedule may be challenging enough to thwart any progress the duo has made thus far. If you’re planning to trade away Smith-Schuster, the time to do so is now.

Tight End

  • Jason Witten remains an easy way to gain exposure to the Cowboys passing attack — and one that looks primed to carry its momentum through the midpoint of the season.
  • Delanie Walker is a strong sell-high candidate. Greg Olsen might be as well.

DST

  • The Saints, Panthers, 49ers, and Bengals will be streamable nearly every game between Weeks 5 and 8.
  • If you’ve been relying on the Chiefs, Cowboys, or Colts, it’s time to get ahead of the game and add one of the aforementioned options — or any defenses that oppose the Dolphins or Redskins.
