C.J. Anderson

Denver Broncos

Jamaal Charles write up I did for FantasyPros.com


“Yesterday, Jamaal Charles looked more like the running back that used to dance all over the Denver Broncos defenses while he was running and catching balls for the Chiefs in seasons past. Now suited up in orange, Broncos fans must be elated to have Charles on their team after his 9 carries for 56 yards and a 12-yard touchdown game in a losing battle against the Bills. Charles is only getting 20 snaps per game for the Denver Broncos through 3 weeks with a healthy C.J. Anderson leading the way, but look for Jamaal’s snaps to increase if he keeps this production up. If C.J. was to get hurt at any point, Jamaal could venture into the backend RB2 discussion. Remember this, 3 games into his new stint as a Bronco, months after every NFL team passed on signing him and whispers that he was a washed up bum, he has more rushing yards so far than big named highly drafted running backs like LeSean McCoy (on 20 fewer carries), Marshawn Lynch, Isaiah Crowell, and Mark Ingram.” -d-Rx®

Fantasy Goo: Watch out C.J. Anderson and his fantasy owners, if Jamaal is healed, he's a remarkable running back.

Wendell Smallwood

Philadelphia Eagles

Waiver Wire Target


Smallwood had one of his best games a pro with 12 carries for 71 yards and one catch for nine yards. The Eagles are looking for more out of their running game, and after this performance Smallwood should see more consistent touches going forward.

Taylor Gabriel

Atlanta Falcons

Waiver Wire Target


Gabriel gave one of his splash games this week, catching five passes for 71 yards, including a 40-yard touchdown. If you are looking for a big play receiver in deeper leagues then Gabriel has potential, but there are going to be a lot of two catches for 22 yards as well.

Devin Funchess

Carolina Panthers

Waiver Wire Target


The Panthers do not have a lot of options at receiver, so Funchess actually becomes fantasy relevant. This week he caught four passes for 58 yards. If he can limit the drops he does have potential in a division that scores a lot of points.

Alex Collins

Baltimore Ravens

Waiver Wire Target


Collins was the best of the Ravens backs this week, gaining 82 yards on nine carries. The problem here is that we have no idea who the coaching staff really likes at running back, since they are all average. This is a situation to avoid at the moment.

Deshone Kizer

Cleveland Browns

Waiver Wire Target


The rookie had an up and down week, completing 22 of 47 passes for 242 yards with two touchdowns and three interceptions. The Browns are letting him throw, but he is also making a lot of mistakes.

Brian Hoyer

San Francisco 49ers

Waiver Wire Target


Hoyer is starting to click in Kyle Shanahan’s offense. This week he completed 23 of 37 passes for 332 yards with two touchdowns and one interception. He can be a good quarterback to stream based on matchups.

Adam Humphries

Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Waiver Wire Target


Humphries is an under the radar receiver for the Bucs, and this week he caught six passes for 68 yards. The only problem is that he is also competing with Chris Godwin for touches.

Chris Godwin

Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Waiver Wire Target


Godwin is an under the radar receiver for the Bucs, and this week he caught three passes for 44 yards. The only problem is he is also competing with Adam Humphries for touches

Brandon Coleman

New Orleans Saints

Waiver Wire Target


Coleman only had one reception for 11 yards this week, but that was a touchdown catch. On a good day he will get you 80 yards, and this was closer to a normal day in terms of yards and targets, not touchdowns.

Kenny Stills

Miami Dolphins

Waiver Wire Target


Stills is getting his shots in the offense, and this week caught four passes for 51 yards. The problem is that the Dolphins are not going to be a dynamic passing team, and Stills is going to flash but it will be tough to predict.

Ed Dickson

Carolina Panthers

Waiver Wire Target


Dickson was a complete disappointment this week with one catch for eight yards. Just because he is filling in for Olsen, he is still Ed Dickson.

Mike Tolbert

Buffalo Bills

Waiver Wire Target


The Bills do not have a legitimate #2 RB, so FB Mike Tolbert is the primary backup. This week he carried the ball 11 times for 41 yards. If McCoy were to get hurt Tolbert would be the lead back, and he has the body to be effective at the goal line.

Marqise Lee

Jacksonville Jaguars

Waiver Wire Target


Lee had an average day with four receptions for 65 yards. That is about what you can expect from Lee, as he does not have a lot of high-end upside.

Jermaine Kearse

New York Jets

Waiver Wire Target


Kearse did not do much this week with just three receptions for 42 yards. He is not going to have many 100-yard games or a lot of touchdowns. Kearse is a middle of the road player who will have a flash, but probably on your bench.

Geronimo Allison

Green Bay Packers

Waiver Wire Target


Allison had a coming out party this week with six catches for 122 yards. Just remember that he is the fourth receiver on the Packers, which usually is a good thing. Rodgers will find the open player and Allison got himself more playing time after this performance.

Ben Watson

Baltimore Ravens

Waiver Wire Target


Watson only had three receptions for 12 yards this week, but one of them was a touchdown, so his fantasy line looks better than it was. He is a redzone target and can be bye week replacement if necessary.

Robert Woods

Los Angeles Rams

Waiver Wire Target


Woods is never going to dazzle you, but he can give you some workman like efforts. This week was one of thos times, as he caught six passes for 108 yards. That will probably be his best game of the year, but he can give you a decent floor as a bye week replacement.

Travis Benjamin

Los Angeles Chargers

Waiver Wire Target


The Chargers have a lot of receivers vying for touches, but Benjamin may have the most big play ability. This week he caught five passes for 105 yards. If he continues to be targeted this much by Philip Rivers he will have a chance to make plays and is worth a roster spot in deeper leagues.

Danny Amendola

New England Patriots

Waiver Wire Target


Amendola was back, but he did not make a major impact this week with three receptions for 48 yards. He should be owned in most leagues, especially PPR leagues, as he is going to see a lot of targets when healthy.

Pickups & Drops after Week 2

 

 

Brandon Myers - TE - Oak – Myers is proving to be a consistent target for Carson Palmer as he led the team in receptions and yards with 6 for 86 in week 2.  Myers had 5 receptions in week 1 and is a solid TE who comes from Iowa who seem to be a factory for the position.  Myers is available in just about every league out there.  If you need a good backup tight end that has potential, then Myers is breaking onto the scene.  If you need a tight end…grab him.    



Demarius Johnson - WR - Eagles
– Johnson is a good guy that you can project a bigger role for in the Eagles offense as the season moves forward.  He had 1 reception for 13 yards and added a run for 6 yards, which shows that the Eagles are trying to get him involved.  Then consider that Maclin and Jackson are both injury prone, so it will not take much for Johnson to be able to get out there and make his mark.



Andre Brown - RB - Giants
– It was Brown, not David Wilson, that took advantage of an early injury to Ahmad Bradshaw.  It appeared that Wilson is still in the coach’s doghouse for fumbling in week 1 and Brown was quick to step in and impress.  He carried the ball 13 times for 71 yards and added 2 receptions for another 19 yards.  Bradshaw will be a game time decision at best for the Thursday Night game and Brown will be in line for a lot of carries either way.  His performance may have moved Wilson down the depth chart.  



Scott Chandler - TE - Bills
– Chandler is once again off to a fast start with a TD in each game this season and added 53 yards on 2 catches in week 2.  Chandler is always a threat in the redzone and is being targeted more this season than last.  Chandler, like Brandon Myers, is another Iowa product that has good hands and gets open.  Chandler showed us this fast start last season, only to fizzle out, but if you are in a TD league he is always a threat to score.



Aldric Robinson - WR - Washington
– Robinson was expected to have a larger role this week with Pierre Garcon inactive, but only finished with 2 receptions for 40 yards.  His only other target was a deep pass that he dropped at a key moment in the game for the Redskins.  Robinson still has a chance to be productive as he did not make the biggest mistake at the wide receiver position in the game…that honor belongs to Josh Morgan.  Morgan threw the football at Cortland Finnegan after a 3rd down play with less than 2 minutes to play in the game and received an unsportsmanlike conduct penalty, which forced Bully Cundiff to attempt a 62 yard field goal instead of a 47 yards field goal.  Cundiff missed.



Brian Hartline - WR - Miami
– As will happen with rookie quarterbacks, they end up liking one receiver more than everyone else.  In Miami Brian Hartline has emerged as that favorite target for Ryan Tannehill.  Hartline was targeted 12 times against the Raiders and finished with 9 receptions for 111 yards.  Hartline has 20 targets through 2 weeks, and with the chemistry that is developing between Hartline and Tannehill you should grab him now. 



Bilel Powell - RB - Jets
– Bilel Powell stepped in when Shonn Greene got dinged up on a helmet to helmet hit and finished with 9 carries for 33 yards against the Steelers.  Greene is always a threat for this type of injury with the style of runner that he is.  Powell showed some nice burst against a tough run defense, but he his value increases with a Greene injury. 

 

Daryl Richardson - RB - St Louis – Richardson was given a chance because of a stupid penalty by Steven Jackson that resulted in Jackson being benched for the game by head coach Jeff Fisher.  Richardson carried the ball 15 times for 83 yards, which was highlighted by a 53 yard scamper, and he also added 2 receptions for 19 yards.  It seems clear that Richardson is in line for a bigger role going forward, and if you own Jackson then you better move quick to grab this insurance policy that looks like it can cash in if given the opportunities. 

 

Dante Rosario - TE - Chargers – Rosario had 4 receptions for 48 yards and 3 TD grabs in replacement of Antonio Gates in week 2.  Rosario is not considered a strong option to grab unless you are an owner of Gates.  Rivers likes to use the tight end as we all know and saw this week with Rosario, but he has been in the league since 2007 and has never really made an impact.
