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.

Pickups After Week 3

 

 

Mikel Leshoure – RB Lions – If you did not grab him last week you better act quickly if he is still on your waiver wire or free agent list.  The Lions went to Leshoure early and often as he carried the ball 26 times for 100 yards and added 34 more on 4 receptions.  He is clearly the lead back for the Lions going forward and with the weapons on the outside he should be able to put up nice numbers. 

 


Jeremy Kerley – WR Jets – Kerley is an interesting player for the Jets.  He had 2 catches for 73 yards and a TD in week 3 versus the Dolphins.  Kerley now has 2 TD grabs through 3 weeks of the season and could be in line for more targets.  Jets rookie WR Stephen Hill left the game with a hamstring injury and could be iffy this week.  That might be all the time Kerley needs to step in and take a bigger role in the offense.  Kerley is also a kick and punt returner, so he has extra chances to score.

 

 

Heath Miller – TE Steelers – Miller is that old comfortable blanket that have not used in over a year, but once you get it out you remember why you like it.  Miller had 8 grabs for 60 yards and 2 TD and was that old comfortable blanket once again for Big Ben.  Miller is going to be an active part of the offense the rest of the season, but he is still not a threat for a lot of yards after the catch, but he is a threat to score a TD in the redzone.  It looks like the Heath Miller of 2009 could be back in Pittsburgh. 

 

 

Ramses Barden – WR Giants – Barden stepped onto the scene in a big way on Thursday Night Football with 9 catches for 138 yards.  This was a very important performance for Barden, who saw extra playing time with the injury to Hakeem Nicks, to make his statement on the WR3 position for the Giants.  Barden should be seeing more playing time than Ruben Randle and Domink Hixon after this week.  His real value though is as a handcuff to Nicks or Cruz owners as an injury to one of them raises his stock.

 

 

T.Y. Hilton – WR Colts – Hilton was the flavor of the day for the Colts passing game this week as he notched 4 catches for 113 yards and a TD.  Hilton was targeted 8 times in the game and showed his speed and quickness with his 28.5 yards per catch average.  Hilton should be in line for more opportunities as Austin Collie may be done for the season with a knee injury suffered on his only catch of the game.  The problem is that Hilton is not a player that will give you consistent stats, but he is always a threat once he gets the ball in his hands.

 

 

Tashard Choice – RB Bills – Choice is a name you know as the guy who could not cut it with Cowboys, but he is getting a second chance with the Bills and the injury this week to CJ Spiller.  Spiller left the game with a separated shoulder and Choice stepped in and ran 20 times for 91 yards and added 2 receptions for 8 yards.  The Bills have shown that their offensive line can open up holes for any of their running backs and Choice is going to be the guy, for at least next week.  We need to see how bad the injury is to Spiller and there is a possibility they may try to get Fred Jackson back sooner as well.  If you own Jackson or Spiller then you should grab Choice.   

 

 

Jacquizz Rodgers – RB Falcons – It was made clear this week that the Falcons intend to spread the ball around in the backfield more than in years past.  Rodgers had 10 carries on the game and added 5 receptions in the passing game and finished with 67 total yards and a receiving TD.  Michael Turner had his best game of the season and that could have been due to fresher legs with Rodgers spelling him more than in the first 2 games this season.  Rodgers is also going to be used a lot more in the passing game, so expect to see more of Rodgers as the season goes on. 

 

 

Lamar Miller – RB Dolphins – Reggie Bush went down with a knee injury at the end of the first half and that left Miller and Daniel Thomas to carry the load for the Dolphins.  Miller was the most effective running the ball with 48 yards on 9 carries.  Thomas got the bulk of the carries with 19, but for the second week in a row Miller is showing he is the more effective runner.  The injury to Bush is not considered serious, but he will have an MRI on Monday to confirm.  If Miller’s current play continues expect him to see an increase in his workload next week and going forward. 

 

 

Shaun Hill – QB Lions – Stafford left the game in the 4th quarter with a strained leg muscle, and we will find out more on the severity of the injury tomorrow.  If Stafford is out and you own him and need a backup then you should target Hill.  Hill, as we saw at the end of regulation and in overtime was looking for Calvin Johnson a lot and has been in this offense for some time and in the league forever.  He is only a stop gap pick up. 

 

 

Jerome Simpson – WR Vikings – Simpson will be coming off his 3 game suspension and looks like he could be heading into a good situation.  Harvin is the clear cut #1 and Kyle Rudolph has become the #2 target in the passing offense, but no one has emerged as the 3rd option.  Simpson has the best skills of the remaining receivers and he may have been forgotten about due to his suspension.  Simpson should be see favorable matchups and with the maturation of Ponder, Simpson could be a steal.
