Derrick Henry

Tennessee Titans

Titans in the Backfield


Mike Mularkey said the run game split on MNF (near 50-50 for DeMarco Murray-Derrick Henry) was a good model. He also added that Henry is the go-to RB in the 4th quarter.

Fantasy Goo: I believe this is the target, but we will see this vary from week-to-week. If Murray is healthy or fired-up, like he may be after his coaches’ comments, he will be the guy to start. As the season whines down so will Murray, buy Henry for your playoff run, he’s more than just a handcuff.

Marlon Mack

Indianapolis Colts

Turbin Done for Season


Colts HC Chuck Pagano expects RB Robert Turbin to miss rest of season with arm injury he suffered Monday night. Turbin has averaged 6+ touches per game over the past four weeks.

Fantasy Goo: This might seem insignificant, but I expect Marlon Mack will pick-up all of those touches. An extra 6 touches from Mack could mean a major boost in production. Grab him if you can, he’ll be explosive when Luck comes back.

Ezekiel Elliott

Dallas Cowboys

Two More Weeks of Zeke


Ezekiel Elliott has been granted another temporary restraining order by the Southern District of New York, and will be allowed to play Week 7. The restraining order, is for 14 days. So it appears Elliott will also be good for Week 8.

Fantasy Goo: Hold off on all the Morris/McFadden love for a couple more weeks. If you have them you’re probably holding if you’re a contender, but I’d sell high to the Zeke owner if you can. This is gearing up for Zeke to be out during the fantasy playoffs.

Kenny Golladay

Detroit Lions

Golladay. Celebrate


If we picked up Golladay
Take some time to celebrate
Just one day out of life
It would be, it would be so nice
Everybody spread the word
We’re gonna have a celebration

Every season there is that player that propels a team to the fantasy promise land. Kenny Golladay possesses that high upside potential down the stretch that can be invaluable. Golladay last played in week 3 before suffering a hamstring injury, and Matthew Stafford has missed his 213lb 6’4 receiver. After throwing for 7TDs in the first 3 weeks; Stafford has only thrown for 2TDs before exploding in week 6 against the Saints with 3 tosses. This was a result of the game being out of hand and being forced to throw 52 times. Golden Tate was injured in this game and word is he will be out a few weeks. The Lions are on a bye in week 7, which gives Tate a free week to rest, but more importantly gives Golladay a free week to get ready to explode on the scene once again at home in week 8 against the Steelers. Tate and Marvin Jones Jr are what they are at this point. Golladay gives Stafford the kind of big threat target that he has lacked since the Decepticon leader himself MEGATRON retired. You can’t teach height and talent, and that is a gunslingers favorite type of weapon to use.

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.

2012 fantasy football pickups and drops after week 11

 

 

Pickups After Week 11

 

 

 

Chad Henne - Pyro Character

Chad Henne – QB – JaguarsHenne stepped in for an injured Blaine Gabbert and was able to finally get Justin Blackmon involved in the offense to a huge degree. He finished the game with 354 yards, four TD passes, no interceptions and had the offense moving against a very tough Texans defense on the road. In my opinion, Henne just took the starting job from Gabbert which is a boon to the owners of WRs Cecil Shorts and Justin Blackmon.

 

Bryce Brown - Pyro Character

Bryce Brown – RB – EaglesLeSean McCoy was carted off the field with what was confirmed after the game to be a concussion. Bryce Brown would be the replacement for McCoy if he misses any time and from the looks of the hit, he will probably miss next week’s Monday night game. McCoy hasn’t really been able to get off behind this offensive line, so don’t expect a ton of production out of Brown; though Brown did have five carries for 35 yards in relief against the Redskins.

 

Ronnie Hillman - Pyro Character

Ronnie Hillman – RB – Broncos – When Willis McGahee left the game with a knee injury in the second quarter, Ronnie Hillman stepped in and saw the most playing time he had seen all season finishing the game with 43 yards on 12 carries while adding another 16 yards on two catches. With reports coming back that McGahee both tore his MCL and fractured a bone in his lower right leg, Hillman suddenly becomes a sure-fire starting fantasy running back, so there's no doubt he'll be one of the best pickups of the week. It is still unclear how much time McGahee will miss, but if it turns out to be 6-8 weeks, then Hillman needs to be grabbed and can be used as a regular RB2 in this dynamic Broncos offense.

 

 

Jalen Parmele – RB – JaguarsSupposedly the Jaguars coaching staff got sick of Rashad Jennings’ ineffective play (i.e. – his one touchdown and 2.86 YPC on 77 carries), so they decided to go with backup Jalen Parmele instead. My guess would be that Jennings’ failure had as much to do with the rest of the NFL being completely unafraid of QB Blaine Gabbert, but now we’ll never know. Parmele, however, will not have to deal with the same disrespect for his QB as Jennings because it looks like Chad Henne will take over under center for the time being. If the rest of the RBs on this list are already taken and you need a flex option for the next week or two until Maurice Jones-Drew comes back, Parmele wouldn’t be the worst guy you could pickup this week as the Jags next two opponents (Tennessee and Buffalo) happen to give up the first- and second-most fantasy points to running backs this season.

 


Marcel Reece – RB – RaidersIt may have been a massive, lopsided defeat for his team, but Reece certainly made an impression on Fantasy owners after his explosion on Sunday. Not only did Marcel finish the day with a game-high 103 yards rushing, but he also added a game-high 90 yards on four catches as well. Granted this was the Saints defense he was putting these numbers up against, but the only better option for a fantasy player to face out there just might be the Raiders, so he can look forward to doing that in practice this week. Either way, after a performance like that, Reece is going to continue to be utilized in this offense for the rest of the season.

 

 

LaRod Stephens-Howling – RB – CardinalsLSH was very impressive running against the Falcons, touching them up for a ripe 127 rushing yards plus a TD. The Falcons may not have a very good run defense, but LSH still showed he can be explosive with two long runs of 40 and 52 yards. The bummer about snagging him is that Beanie Wells is eligible to return next week, so LaRod is undoubtedly going to lose some carries, but I still believe he is going to be a part of the Cardinals plans in the backfield.

 


Danario Alexander – WR – ChargersAlexander backed up his big game in Week 10 with a seven-catch, 96-yard, and two-TD performance on Sunday.  DX has quickly become Philip Rivers’ favorite receiver and has seemingly become the biggest playmaker on the team – as was evident on his one-handed, 21-yard TD catch this week. With Alexander looking like he will continue to see love from Rivers the rest of the way, he’s definitely one of the best adds of the week... if he’s still available.

 

Justin Blackmon - Pyro Character

Justin Blackmon – WR – JaguarsBlackmon finally made his mark on both the NFL and Fantasy with his earth-shattering performance in Week 11. The first-round rookie finished the game with 236 yards on seven receptions (including an 81-yard TD catch) and showed more speed than anyone ever thought he had… and did it all with Chad Henne under center! As long as he’s been mentioned, I believe Henne will be the starter from here on out which would definitely make Blackmon worth taking a shot on; especially with the rapport and he and Henne displayed against the Texans.

 

Julian Edelman - Pyro Character

Julian Edelman – WR – PatriotsEdelman was all over the field in Week 11. He had five catches (on seven targets) for 58 yards and a TD as well as a 47-yard run and a 68-yard punt return for a TD on special teams. With TE Rob Gronkowski suffering a broken forearm in the game and likely to be out 4-6 weeks, I expect Edelman to have an increased role in the weeks ahead.

 

T.Y. Hilton - Pyro Character

T.Y. Hilton – WR – ColtsWe’ve been mentioning this guy most of the season and yet again, Hilton showed again why he’ll continue to be a big hit-or-miss candidate as he hit again on Sunday. The Colts little speedster out of Florida International ended up with six catches for 100 yards and two TD grabs of 14 and 43 yards this time and if his fellow rookie QB has anything to say about it, it won’t be his last big game. T.Y. is still going to be hit-or-miss, but he is developing a nice rapport with Andrew Luck right now and has the skills to be a home run hitter for your fantasy team down the stretch.

 

Garrett Graham – TE – TexansGraham had a breakout game on Sunday with eight catches for 82 yards and two TDs. In fact, this was an absolute explosion of a game in general as we saw Matt Schaub throw for 527 yards (tied for second-most in modern NFL history) and the two teams combine for 80 points in a three-hour and 49-minute overtime marathon.  Graham is going to be a hot pick-up, but don’t expect this type of performance to happen again this season.

 

Tony Moeaki - Pyro Character

Tony Moeaki – TE – ChiefsMoeaki is finally starting to make an impact this season. He was coming off a three-catch, 68-yard game last week and did well to follow it up with 73 yards on another four catches on Sunday. Moeaki is a deep option at the position, but his performance over the last two weeks and the injury to Dwayne Bowe (head/neck) should keep him on his current pace.
