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.

nick foles philadelphia eagles - pickups after week 9

 

 

WAIVER WIRE WEEK 10

 

 

Nick Foles – QB – Eagles – Owned in 40% of CBS leagues – Foles has just cemented himself as the starter for the Eagles, with his record setting performance on Sunday.  Nick completed 22 of 28 passes for 406 yards, and he threw an NFL record 7 touchdown passes, with zero interceptions.  This was a perfect game for Foles who also added 14 yards rushing.  If you were a Vick owner and have not grabbed Foles yet, you better hurry, because he is going to be owned in every league after this week.

 

Chris Ivory – RB – Jets – Owned in 68% of CBS leagues – You never exactly know who is going to be the main back for the Jets, but Ivory stepped up huge against his former team.  Ivory torched the Saints for 139 yards on 18 carries, including a touchdown.  With this strong performance, I would be surprised if Ivory does not continue to get a lion’s share of the carries from here on out. 

 

Riley Cooper – WR – Eagles – Owned in 22% of CBS leagues – Now that Nick Foles is the quarterback for the Eagles going forward, Cooper becomes a real nice pickup.  Cooper has thrived when Foles has been under center, and this week was no exception.  Riley had 5 catches on the day and finished with 139 yards, with 3 of those catches for going for scores.  DeSean Jackson will continue to see the double teams and Cooper will get plenty of targets to be viable for the rest of the season. 

 

Mike James – RB – Buccaneers – Owned in 76% of CBS leagues – James had himself quite a day in Seattle on Sunday.  The rookie said, “I’m Mike James BITCH!!!”  as he ran for 158 yards on 28 carries, while adding 8 yards receiving and by the way, he also threw a touchdown pass.  James will surely be owned in every league after this week, so if he is available in your league, do yourself a favor and grab him.

 

Aaron Dobson – WR – Patriots – Owned in 45% of CBS leagues – I told you over the past couple weeks that Dobson was taking over as the deep threat receiver for the Patriots over Kenbrell Thompkins, and this week’s performance put a stamp on that.  Dobson had 5 catches for 130 yards with 2 scores, including an 81-yard strike from Tom Brady.  Dobson is going to be gobbled up in free agency, so if you need help at receiver grab him.  Dobson has excelled with less pressure on him since the return of Gronk and Amendola. 

 

Jason Campbell – QB – Browns – Owned in 19% of CBS leagues – Campbell was on fire this week for the Browns, as he threw for 262 yards with 3 touchdowns and zero interceptions.  If you miss out on the Nick Foles sweepstakes, this should be your contingency plan.  The old veteran has been playing very well since taking over in Cleveland, and he has weapons to throw to.  The starting job is his for the rest of the season. 

 

Rashad Jennings – RB – Raiders – Owned in 12% of CBS leagues – Oops he did it again, McFadden that is.  Run DNP left this week’s game with another hamstring injury, and Rashad Jennings stepped in and stepped up.  In a game where Nick Foles crushed the Raiders, Jennings ran the ball 15 times for 102 yards and a touchdown.  Jennings was not done there, as he added another 74 yards on 7 receptions.  Expect Rashad to be the starter next week, but he depending on how bad the injury is to DNP it could be for a bit longer. 

 

Marlon Brown – WR – Ravens – Owned in 34% of CBS leagues – Brown continues to fly under the radar, but seems to be Flacco’s favorite target other than Torrey Smith.  Marlon had 5 catches for 54 yards and 2 touchdowns on Sunday.  He had his first touchdown catch since week 4, but he now has 5 scores on the year.  If you are in a deeper league do not be afraid to grab Brown. 

 

Mario Manningham – WR – 49ers – Owned in 8% of CBS leagues – Manningham is set to return to the starting lineup for the 49ers next week.  Kaepernick has been looking for someone else to step up in the passing game other than Davis and Boldin.  Mario has proven to be a redzone target, as he showed in 2010 catching 9 touchdowns with the Giants.  If you need help at receiver grab him now, before he has a good game.

 

Michael Crabtree – WR – 49ers – Owned in 8% of CBS leagues – If you have the luxury of being able to play the futures market, then take a chance on Crabtree.  Crabtree will have a chance to return in week 12, but he could play a major factor for you in your fantasy playoffs. 

 

Andre Brown – RB – Giants – Owned in 65% of CBS leagues – Brown is coming back next week, and he should step in and take over for Peyton Hillis and Brandon Jacobs.  Andre will be the load back for the Giants and will not be taken out near the goal line.  This is your last chance to get him.

 

Lance Moore – WR – Saints – Owned in 48% of CBS leagues – Moore had another good game this week against the Jets, with 70 yards on 6 catches.  Lance is working his way back into this offense, since returning to the starting lineup last week.  We have seen Marques Colston disappear as of late, and Moore is stepping up his game at the right time.  Moore is still not going to be the first or second option in the redzone, but in this high-flying Saints offense, he is going to get his chances.

 

Jonathan Stewart – RB – Panthers – Owned in 41% of CBS leagues – Stewart returned to action, and was pretty effective with 43 yards on 9 carries, while adding another 22 yards on 3 catches.  J-Stew definitely has fresh legs, and you can expect him to see even more touches next week.  The only issue for owners that go after Stewart is that he is still in a very crowded backfield, and he is not going to post any monster games sharing carries with DeAngelo Williams and Mike Tolbert. 

 

Tim Wright – TE – Buccaneers – Owned in 34% of CBS leagues – Wright stepped up again for Bucs, and is starting to develop a nice rapport with Mike Glennon.  The rookie had 58 yards on 4 catches with a score this week.  Now that Mike Williams is out for the season, Wright is going to be counted on to pick up the slack, and he has shown nice receiving ability.  If you need help at tight end do not overlook this rookie.

 

Greg Little – WR – Browns – Owned in 6% of CBS leagues – Little has been a disappointing player in Cleveland, but he knows that he is basically auditioning for other teams for the rest of the season.  His resume will look a lot better after this week where he caught 7 passes for 122 yards.  The issue for Little has been dropped passes, but he made some great catches in this game.  There are still going to be a lot of ups and downs with Little, but if he continues to see targets from Campbell he will be worth a shot in 14 and 16 team leagues.

 

Cole Beasley – WR – Cowboys – Owned in 1% of CBS leagues – Miles Austin is a forgotten man in Big D, and Cole Beasley is doing a nice job working in the slot.  This week Cole had 68 yards on 6 catches.  Dez Bryant and Terrance Williams are going to draw the attention of defenses, and that will allow Beasley to continue to exploit mismatches in the middle of the field.  If you are in a 14 or 16 team league I recommend taking a shot on Cole. 

 

Marquise Goodwin – WR – Bills – Owned in 1% of CBS leagues – I mentioned this speedster last week, and his struck pay dirt again this week.  Goodwin only had 2 catches, but they went for 64 yards including a 59-yard bomb.  This kid is not going to see a ton of targets each week, but he has sub 4.3 speed and the Bills are using him correctly.  He is going to continue to see deep targets each week, and if you are in a 14 or 16 team league or a league that rewards for long touchdowns take a flier on this guy.

 

Zach Ertz – TE – Eagles – Owned in 3% of CBS leagues – The rookie has stepped up his game as of late, and he continued that trend against the Raiders.  Ertz finished the game with 5 catches for 42 yards, including catching one of Nick Foles 7 touchdown passes.  Foles is doing a nice job of distributing the ball around the offense, and Zach should continue to improve, as he feels more comfortable in the offense, and with a pocket passer.  Ertz is worth a look in deeper leagues. 

 

Shonn Greene – RB – Titans – Owned in 1% of CBS leagues – Greene is the backup to Chris Johnson, but that also means he is the goal line back, and he proved that this week.  The Iowa product had 38 yards on 9 carries with a touchdown, while adding another 28 yards on a nice catch and run.  Johnson had 2 rushing touchdowns this week, which were his first 2 of the season, but he is still not getting the carries inside the 10-yard line.  If you are in a 14 or 16 team league where touchdowns are the key, take a chance on Shonn.

 

Doug Baldwin – WR – Seahawks – Owned in 12% of CBS leagues – Baldwin continues to play well for the Seahawks, but had his best game of the season on Sunday.  Against the Buccaneers Baldwin had 75 yards and a touchdown on 6 catches.  Percy Harvin is going to be coming back to the Seahawks after their bye week, but Baldwin is a veteran who is probably going to continue to see playing time, while Jermaine Kearse is the player likely to lose snaps.  Baldwin is not going to have games better than this, but if you are in a 14 or 16 team league he can help.

 

Andrew Hawkins – WR – Bengals – Owned in 2% of CBS leagues – Hawkins has returned to the Bengals, and he will have a chance to take over the slot duties for the team.  Hawkins has amazing speed and can create mismatches for defenses by being moved all over the field.  He should continue to see his role in the offense increase in the coming weeks, and is worth taking a flier on 14 and 16 team leagues. 

 

Darrel Young – RB – Redskins – Owned in 0% of CBS leagues – Young, is a fullback, and had a hell of a game on Sunday with 3 touchdowns.  Young only had 5 carries for 12 yards in the game, which is why I am placing him on this list as a warning to those who only look at fantasy points.  DO NOT go running after this guy.  This was a one-week vulture who is not worth adding onto any fantasy team.
