George Kittle

San Francisco 49ers

Waiver Wire Target


Kittle had a very average game this week catching four passes for 46 yards, but there could be some good news that came out of this game for him. C.J. Beathard has been named the starter for the rest of the season, and that was Kittle’s college quarterback, so you know there is immediate chemistry there that could pay nice dividends in the coming weeks

Alex Collins

Baltimore Ravens

Waiver Wire Target


Collins got the majority of the carries for the Ravens this week with 15 of them for 74 yards. He looks like he will be in a time share with Javorious Allen, but this was the first time we saw him take the majority of the carries, making him more interesting going forward.

Austin Hooper

Atlanta Falcons

Waiver Wire Target


Without Sanu the Falcons leaned a lot more on Hooper, who finished with seven receptions for 48 yards. He is becoming a bigger part of the Falcons offense, and he has big play potential that makes him a worthy add.

Ted Ginn Jr

New Orleans Saints

Waiver Wire Target


Ginn is the deep threat receiver for Drew Brees and they connected on a 20-yard score this week. Ginn finished with four receptions for 66 yards including that score. The Saints offense is lacking the big play and Ginn can provide the pop in the passing game.

Samaje Perine

Washington Redskins

Waiver Wire Target


Perine finally found the endzone this week, but his final stat line was not that pretty with nine carries for just 23 yards and three receptions for 24 yards and a touchdown. Samaje has lacked the big play, which has limited him in fantasy.

D'Onta Foreman

Houston Texans

Waiver Wire Target


Foreman got his customary 12 carries and this week gained 59 yards, but was once again held without a touchdown. He is getting a consistent workload, but he is not busting the big play to make him a worthy fantasy start.

Mike Wallace

Baltimore Ravens

Waiver Wire Target


After a stellar week Wallace came back down to earth, catching three passes for 30 yards. Wallace is a boom or bust.

Kendall Wright

Chicago Bears

Waiver Wire Target


Wright was basically invisible this game with two catches for 36 yards, and did not make a catch until the third quarter. There is too much inconsistency in the Bears passing offense.

Adam Humphries

Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Waiver Wire Target


Humphries continued to be a decent part of the passing game, catching six passes for 51 yards this week. He was able to do this with Ryan Fitzpatrick having to come in for Winston, so it shows that Humphries is a regular part of their offense.

C.J. Beathard

San Francisco 49ers

Waiver Wire Target


Beathard came in relief of Brian Hoyer, who was horrible, and finished with 245 passing yards with one touchdown and one interception. Kyle Shanahan has named Beathard the starting quarterback the rest of the season. He is only worth adding in deeper leagues, but he should also give you some yards on the ground.

Nelson Agholor

Philadelphia Eagles

Waiver Wire Target


Agholor was scooped up in a lot of leagues last week, and he stayed hot this week catching four passes for 55 yards with another touchdown. Nelson has become a favorite target of Carson Wentz, and he is getting favorable matchups with Jeffery and Ertz drawing most of the defensive attention.

Darren McFadden

Dallas Cowboys

Waiver Wire Target


Morris may already be taken in your league, but he will be sharing time with McFadden while Zeke sits on the sidelines. If you are in a deep league and need a flier, here he is.

Orleans Darkwa

New York Giants

Waiver Wire Target


Darkwa is the Giant running back that has emerged as the lead back for the team. He torched the Broncos defense for 117 yards on 21 carries and caught one pass for 13 yards. He showed some nice burst and that will likely get him another big workload in their next game.

Bennie Fowler

Denver Broncos

Waiver Wire Target


Fowler only had three receptions for 21 yards, but could be in line for a lot more work with the injury to Emmanuel Sanders. This is not a prolific passing attack, but he will start to seen enough targets to be added in fantasy.

Eli Manning

New York Giants

The Last Eli


Did you lose Aaron Rodgers in week 6? Do you have solid skill players carrying your squad, but are looking at the wire now for a QB for the stretch run in a deep league? You may want Eli Manning right now. He’s most likely sitting there on your waiver wire or can be traded for in exchange for some bantha fodder. (for the Star Wars fans. Waz up?) Nobody is going to want Manning after throwing for 128yds and 1TD in week 6. Then in week 7, have a match up with the Seahawks?! Hell no! Then a bye in week 8?! Forget that right?

Well....with the emergence of Evan Engram, and Sterling Shepard probably returning after the bye for week 9, there may be a new hope for Manning owners looking ahead. Manning is a durable, 2 time SB champion who makes players around him better. He's been doing it well before OBJ was there. Manning made players like Victor Cruz and Hakeem Nicks studs. How did David Tyree’s career go after leaving Manning? He got rich, but that’s not the point, or is it? With Engram, Shepard, and after some more reps with Roger Lewis and company; Manning could have a solid weekly floor of 230yds and 2TDs. That may not sound sexy, but I’ve seen fantasy championships won with QB’s like Josh Freeman with similar production, as long as you have quality skill players around him.

The Giants schedule after they return in week 9 from their bye isn't too shabby: vs Rams, @49ers, vs Chiefs, @Redskins, @Raiders, and face the Cowboys, Eagles and @Cardinals in the fantasy playoffs.

Tyreek Hill

Kansas City Chiefs

Chiefs WR corps isn't very good


Tyreek Hill and the entire passing attack should be flex or bench material this week against the Steelers, but I am well aware you can’t really bench Hill. He’s too explosive and returns a lot of kicks for touchdowns, but just don’t expect a lot of production through the air. Corey Colman and Mike Wallace were the only two receivers this year to score on the Steelers and Hill can easily put up one himself, but the Chiefs may not need to pass more than 15 times this game.

Fantasy Goo: With Chris Conley suffering a ruptured Achilles tendon last weekend, it's hard to like this receiving corps much beyond Tyreek Hill.

2012 Fantasy Football Start 'Em Sit 'Em for Week 17

Start ‘Em Sit ‘Em – Week 17

 

 

Every week, there are certain fantasy studs who you simply have to start no matter what. Tom Brady, Adrian Peterson and A.J. Green fall into that category, to name a few. There are also a good number of players you should probably sit each week as well. But then, there are those players whom you have no idea whether to start or sit. Here are a few not-so-obvious guys at each major fantasy position who you might not know what to do with, but for whom the stats and other information dictates one way or the other.

 

 

START 'EM

 

 

QUARTERBACKS

 

Robert Griffin III - Pyro Character

Robert Griffin III (vs. Dal, Sunday night) – The second half of Griffin’s fantasy season hasn’t been as good as the first, but the Redskins have won six straight games now and are in a position to win the NFC East and enter the 2012 playoffs. What matters most here is that RGIII has something to play for this Sunday night and won’t ease off the pedal. Another consideration is that Griff has played well against the Cowboys before, tossing up 311 yards and four touchdowns against them back in Week 12. Basically, start him if you got him.

 

Tony Romo - Pyro Character

Tony Romo (at Was, Sunday night) – Though he started out slow, Tony Romo has put together a very nice season setting personal highs in passing attempts, completions, and yards. However, he’s still a good 10 touchdowns away from his career best yet just a few interceptions away from a career worst, so not all has been roses for the Cowboys’ QB. Dallas still has something to fight for, though, with the winner of their game against the Redskins this Sunday night taking home the NFC East crown and a playoff bid. Romo had one of his best fantasy performances against these guys back in Week 12 throwing for 441 yards and three TDs, so he’s definitely a top consideration to be your fantasy starter this week.

 

Cam Newton - Pyro Character

Cam Newton (at NO) – Though the Panthers have long since been eliminated from the playoff race, they haven’t given up as they’ve won three in a row now and four of their last five games. Their schedule may not have been the toughest during that time, but nothing like that has ever stopped Cam Newton’s incessant chase for glory. Newton has been one of the best fantasy players in the game over the second half of the season and should be able to come through with one last big showing for his owners this weekend against the Saints.

 

Andrew Luck - Pyro Character

Andrew Luck (vs. Hou) – The word I’m hearing at this point is that the Colts will play their starters regardless of the team being unable to move up or down from their playoff slot. When we receive definitive news on teams in similar situations—such as the Cincinnati Bengals, who coach Marvin Lewis already stated would be playing their starters despite having no reason to—then we’ll be sure to adjust our rankings accordingly. At this point, the only such news we’ve heard was from coach Chuck Pagano stating that “it’s not in our makeup” to rest anyone, so Luck needs to be considered a top ten fantasy guy this week. His prowess at home coupled with a nice game against the Texans just two weeks ago calls for it.

 

Russell Wilson - Pyro Character

Russell Wilson (vs. StL) – Russell Wilson has more to play for than some of the other quarterbacks this weekend, but the Seattle coaches know that the best way for the Seahawks to win this game against St. Louis will be to ram the ball down their throats. That being said, Wilson has been too good of late to ignore him—especially at home—so he definitely deserves a spot in the top ten this week. In fact, the rookie has ranked inside the top ten fantasy QBs during four of the last five weeks, so to have him here in a game the Seahawks are still aiming to win can almost go without explanation.
