Fantasy Football Daily Ratings – Marquise Brown arrest, RB opportunities in NE, KC

Read ESPN’s Daily Fantasy Football Ratings each weekday to stay up to date with the news you need to know and get a head start on fantasy football content coming today and tomorrow on ESPN.com and the ESPN Fantasy app.


The news: ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported that Cardinals wide receiver Marquise Brown was arrested for felony speeding Wednesday morning.

What does it mean in fantasy: Due to a hamstring injury, Brown was placed on the active non-football injury list the day before training camp began last Wednesday. From a fantasy standpoint, Brown is missing valuable time to mend relations with his former college quarterback and is unlikely to face league discipline for his criminal speeding charges.


The news: The Patriots do not have a specific timetable for the return of running back James White

What does it mean in fantasy: White is recovering from hip surgery and is a candidate to start the season on PUP. In White’s absence, Rhamondre Stevenson could see more touches as he worked as a third down in training. White averaged 5.4 targets per game during his career with the Patriots. Stevenson is currently RB36 in our live draft trends and has the potential to exceed expectations.


The news: ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported that the NFL decided to appeal Deshaun Watson’s six-game suspension.

What this means: Indefinite suspension was the NFL’s goal, with one year as the minimum. According to reports, Watson will sue the NFL if suspended for a full season. Currently, Roger Goodell controls the length of the suspension. Whether he hears the appeal or appoints a designated person is up to him.

The news: ESPN’s Adam Teicher reported that running back Isiah Pacheco had a great training camp.

What does it mean in fantasy: Pacheco has been compared to Kareem Hunt, who averaged a fantastic 20.3 touches and 18.4 points per game during his rookie season with the Chiefs in 2017. There are a lot of people in the Chiefs backfield, but the competition is wide open. Pre-season matches will determine Pacheco’s fantasy relevance heading into Week 1, but fantasy managers should keep an eye on him.

Go further : Pacheco finished his college career at Rutgers sixth in school history with 563 rushing attempts, seventh with 2,442 rushing yards, and 11th with 3,039 total yards. It’s important to have appropriate expectations, but chefs are known for finding diamonds in the rough.
