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.

Pickups After Week 13

 


Chris Givens – WR – RamsOwned in 3% of ESPN Leagues – Givens has had 2 great weeks in a row, as he followed up his first 100-yard game with an 11 catch 92 yard performance against the 49ers.  He is becoming more and more involved in this offense.

 


Pierre Thomas – RB – SaintsOwned in 64% of ESPN Leagues – Thomas is still a risky play, as he is mired in a major backfield committee.  His 84 yards this week were the most rushing yards he has had since his 110-yard game in week 2.  He is still not the goal line back, so that works against him as well.

 


Montell Owens – RB – JaguarsOwned in 0% of ESPN Leagues – Owens is a deep option, but the only option right now for the Jaguars, as Rashad Jennings had to leave this weeks game.  This is a move if you are in a deep league and in a real bind.

 


Russell Wilson – QB – SeahawksOwned in18% of ESPN Leagues – Wilson has been pretty effective as of late with 11 TD to 1 INT over his last 5 games and threw 2 more this week against the Bears.  He is quietly having a very nice second half and his rushing yards have made him even more viable.

 


Golden Tate – WR – SeahawksOwned in10% of ESPN Leagues – Tate is coming off a 5 catch game for 96 yards with a score against the Bears, which is his high yardage total for a game on the season.  Tate now has a TD catch in 3 of his last 4 games and his ability to find the endzone makes him a threat in Fantasy.

 


Coby Fleener – TE – ColtsOwned in 12% of ESPN Leagues – Finally returned from injury and only had 1 catch this week for 26 yards, but it went for a TD.  Luck is on fire, so if Fleener can get in the flow of the offense he could score some points.

 


Donnie Avery – WR – ColtsOwned in 8% of ESPN Leagues – Avery was a beast this weak against the Lions with 5 catches for 91 yards and 2 TD.  What was even more impressive was that Avery had 14 targets in the game.  The TD marked his first since week 1, but with Luck playing as well as he is Avery could become more a threat down the road, but still somewhat inconsistent. 

 


Jonathan Dwyer – RB – SteelersOwned in 41% of ESPN Leagues – Dwyer was the lead back for the Steelers this week and answered the bell with 49 yards rushing with a TD and 3 receptions for 8 more yards.  Dwyer is the most consistent back for the Steelers and is the option in the redzone as well. 

 


James Starks – RB – PackersOwned in 1.5% of ESPN Leagues – Starks saw the most action he has seen this season as he split the carries with Alex Green this week, but finished with 15 carries for 66 yards and a TD.  He led the team in rushing and has fresh legs for the Fantasy playoffs. 

 


Jared Cook – TE – TitansOwned in 59% of ESPN Leagues – Cook had 4 catches for 51 yards on 12 targets from Jake Locker.  This was the first game in which he had double-digit targets, and only the 4th game in which he has had more than 50 yards receiving in a game.  The targets are encouraging and maybe Cook can catch fire at the end of the season like he did last year.

 


Michael Floyd – WR – CardinalsOwned in2% of ESPN Leagues – Floyd has not been good this season and has quarterback issues taboot, but he is the starter with the ankle injury to Andre Roberts.  He is a deep league option only.

 


Jacob Tamme – TE – BroncosOwned in 56% of ESPN Leagues – Tamme had 9 catches for 89 yards this week, and the chemistry with Manning is showing.  If you need a TE down the stretch feel good about this guy, if he is available in your league.

 


Ben Watson – TE – BrownsOwned in 6% of ESPN Leagues – Watson is coming off a big day with 6 catches for 80 yards against the Raiders, which are both season highs.  Watson is a hit or miss, with more misses, but 2 of his last 3 weeks have been pretty good, with the 2TD performance 2 weeks ago against Dallas.  Watson is a deep league option.

 


Josh Gordon – WR – Browns – Owned in 24% of ESPN Leagues – Gordon looked like a savvy veteran this week finishing with 6 catches for 116 yards and a 44-yard TD catch.  Gordon is the most dynamic receiver the Browns have and as they look to next year, they should be opening the playbook up the rest of the way and that benefits Gordon.

 


Danario Alexander – WR – ChargersOwned in 27% of ESPN Leagues – Alexander continues to impress since he burst on the scene in week 9 and had another good game this week against the Bengals with 6 catches for 102 yards on 10 targets from Rivers.  Alexander looks solid and is worth the pickup. 

 


Bryce Brown – RB – EaglesOwned in 68% of ESPN Leagues – Okay if he is available grab him now!!!  He had over 100 yards and 2 TD in the first half on the road against the Cowboys.  He shows great burst and even though he needs to be more secure with the ball, he definitely has skills. 


 

Knowshon Moreno – RB – BroncosOwned in 49% of ESPN Leagues – Moreno had a decent second week back with 69 yards on the ground and added 4 catches for 14 more yards.  Moreno was held out of the endzone again, but the amount of touches he is getting in this offense is very encouraging for the Fantasy playoffs.

 


Greg Olsen – TE – PanthersOwned in 54% of ESPN Leagues – Olsen hit paydirt again this week with a 47-yard TD catch.  That was his only catch on the day, but he showed great speed on the play and is a good option if you need help at Tight End.

 


Brandon Myers – TE – RaidersOwned in 22% of ESPN Leagues – Can you say breakout for the Iowa Grad???  Yes, you can with a 14 catch 130-yard and a TD performance this week.  It is clear that Palmer loves this guy and he should be available, so grab like we told you to do 7 weeks ago.

 


Dallas Clark – TE – BuccaneersOwned in 5% of ESPN Leagues – Clark only had 3 catches for 21 yards this week, but his first catch was an 11-yard TD.  Clark is targeted in the redzone and has been scoring more as of late.  If you miss out on Myers or Olsen, then Clark may be your guy.

 

 

 

SOME INJURIES TO INSPIRE SOME FOOD FOR THOUGHT!

 

 

These situations open up opportunities in most cases, pay attention to the below and seek out some guys that could see an increase in looks.

 

 

Jordy Nelson - Hamstring; Rodgers seems to think he'll miss some time
Ryan Broyles - Knee; doesn't look great
Cecil Shorts - Possible concussion, but not sure yet
Stevie Johnson - Possible hamstring injury, but might not keep him out
Julian Edelman - On crutches and in a walking boot after the game

Brandon LaFell - Foot; in a walking boot on Monday
Rashad Jennings - Concussion
Dustin Keller - Left ankle or foot
Donald Brown - Ankle
Sidney Rice - Possible concussion, but not sure yet
Mario Manningham - Shoulder
Garrett Graham - Concussion
Earl Bennett - Concussion
Cedric Peerman - Ankle
Damian Williams - Hamstring

*** In my opinion (Dåwg), I believe the 49ers will activate and get LaMichael James involved next week (and from here on out) to give Frank Gore a REAL change-of-pace RB. Brandon Jacobs simply isn't the guy.
