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 & Drops - After Week 3 / '13

 

 

fred jackson pyro character

Fred Jackson – RB – Bills

 Fred Jackson is proving that it is always better to be the second back in the Bills offense.  C.J. Spiller has had a real hard time being the lead back and only had 9 yards on 10 carries this week, before leaving the game with a knee injury.  Jackson had 7 carries for 72 yards and added 4 catches for another 37 yards.  It is not clear what the extent of the injury to Spiller is, but Jackson is going to continue to see carries when he is producing like he is.

 

bilel powell pyro character

Bilal Powell – RB – Jets

 Bilal Powell got his chance to lead the way for the Jets on Sunday, and had a nice game.  BP gas fuelled the Jets offense with 149 yards on 27 carries.  Powell has been effective this season, and Chris Ivory had to leave this weeks game with a hamstring injury, but only had 5 yards on 4 carries before that.  Bilal should continue to see more touches. 

 

jonathan franklin pyro character

Johnathan Franklin – RB – Packers

 The rookie saw the most action he has seen all year and had a good showing, until a big fumble cost the Packers the game.  Franklin replaced James Starks who left the game with a knee injury and ran for 103 yards on 13 carries with a touchdown.  The UCLA product also showed his effectiveness in the passing game with 3 catches for 23 yards.  If Lacy remains sidelined with his concussion and Starks misses any game time Franklin could be a nice add.

 

christine michael pyro character 

Christine Michael – RB – Seahawks

 Michael finally got see the field for the Seahawks, as they were blowing the Jaguars away early.  Christine had 37 yards on 9 carries, but it was good for him to see the field and get a chance.  Michael was one of our deep sleepers this year and we like all he has to offer.  This is a reminder that his role is going to increase with the Seahawks. 

 

 jacquizz rodgers pyro character

Jacquizz Rodgers – RB – Falcons

 Just another reminder that with Jackson out Rodgers is the guy.  This week he had 86 yards on 18 carries and had 2 catches for 7 yards. 

 

santonio holmes pyro character

Santonio Holmes – WR – Jets

 The oft forgotten man made a major reappearance this week with 5 catches for 154 yards and a nice 69-yard touchdown grab and run.  Geno Smith is going to target Holmes, so he will have a chance to make plays, and this week he showed that he could still make the big play.

 

josh gordon pyro character

Josh Gordon – WR – Browns

 Flash ahh…savior of the universe.  Josh Gordon returned to the Browns after serving a 2 game suspension and what a return he had.  Flash Gordon had 10 catches for 146 yards and a touchdown.  With the Browns deciding to ship Trent Richardson to Indianapolis, Gordon is going to see more targets in this new Browns offense.

 

nate washington pyro characters

Nate Washington – WR – Titans

 Nate “old man” Washington had a nice game this week with 8 catches for 131 yards.  Jake Locker had a much better game and that development will result in more games like this for Titans receivers.  Washington is that savvy veteran that is the modern day version of Derek Mason, and he is on the right team. 

 

nate burleson pyro character

Nate Burleson – WR – Lions

 The other Nate also had a good game on Sunday with 6 catches for 116 yards.  The Lions and Matthew Stafford have continued to be a throw first team and Burleson is the only other receiver that has shown signs of life besides Calvin Johnson. 

 

stephen hill pyro character

Stephen Hill – WR – Jets

 Hill continues to make boneheaded plays, but he also makes some big ones.  This week the Georgia Tech product had 3 catches for 108 yards and a touchdown.  The development of Hill has taken awhile and he is still a work in progress, but he is also a big play guy and he is seeing a fair amount of targets with 23 through 3 weeks.

 

jason avant pyro character

Jason Avant – WR – Eagles

 Jason Avant is that Eagles player that seems like he has been there forever and is always making plays when you are rooting for DeSean Jackson to get the ball.  This week he did it again to Jackson owners and had 5 catches for 87 yards with a touchdown.  Just be aware that Avant is not going to get you many if any 100-yard games.

 

sidney rice pyro character

Sidney Rice – WR – Seahawks

 Rice had been ineffective in the first 2 games this season, but he showed up in week 3 with 5 catches for 79 yards and 2 touchdowns.  If Rice is available on the waiver wire he should be picked up.

 

kendall wright pyro character

Kendall Wright – WR – Titans

 Wright had a steady game with week with 6 catches for 71 yards.  The issues is still the same for this young receiver and that is that he does not get a lot of yards per catch (9.5 career average) or after the catch.  Give me some YAC and you would be a better pickup.

 

brandon lafell pyro character

Brandon LaFell – WR – Panthers

 The Panthers second receiver has not lived up to the hype since taking over the role and finally made his case this week.  LaFell had 5 catches for 53 yards and 2 touchdowns.  The problem is still that he has trouble staying involved in the offense throughout the game and is still going to be inconsistent this season.

 

scott chandler pyro character

Scott Chandler – TE – Bills

 Chandler who is known for being a touchdown scoring tight end did it again on Sunday, but also had 5 catches for 79 yards to go along with it.  We are seeing the growth of E.J. Manuel and Chandler is a huge target who runs pretty well, and Chandler showed that he is fine after having ACL surgery in the offseason.
