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.

QB Player Rankings – Week 8

RB Rankings  WR Rankings  TE Rankings

 

Quarterbacks

 

 

 

1.           Drew Brees (@ StL) – In case you were wondering, last Sunday night was not the biggest fantasy game Brees has ever had (he had two larger ones in 2009 alone), but it might have been the most uncalled for with the game well in hand after just one quarter. Cool Brees has now thrown for five or more TDs in a game five different times in his career, one off the record shared by Dan Marino and Peyton Manning. This week he’ll face a Rams team that gives passing TDs away like they’re Halloween candy allowing more than two per game to opposing QBs. If you were bombarded by him last week, I feel for you, but look at the bright side and be glad you don’t have to face him two weeks in a row.

 

2.           Michael Vick (vs. Dal) – As a whole, the Cowboys have a very solid defense, but their pass D leaves a little something to be desired. In his lone game against them last season, Vick threw for 270 yards and two TDs while running a third one in from a yard out. As far as the Eagles are concerned, they finally showed some urgency two weeks ago in Washington and should continue their all-out play with Andy Reid breathing down their necks. Since Philly is just 2-4 right now and need wins to make the playoffs, I expect Vick and the rest of the guys to pour it on any chance they get.

 

3.           Tom Brady (@ Pit) – It’s strange to think of any player dominating the Pittsburgh Steelers and their vaunted defense, but that’s exactly what Tom Brady has done throughout his career. In five games against them, Brady has thrown for 12 TDs to just three INTs while averaging 337 yards a game on over 68 percent passing. Sure, four of those games were played before 2008, but last year he went into Pittsburgh and ruled the field as well going off for 350 yards and three TDs along with a rushing TD to boot! The Steelers may own the top pass D in the league right now, but stuff like that doesn’t really matter to Brady and might actually egg him on that much more.

 

4.           Ben Roethlisberger (vs. NE) – Basically, when you play against Tom Brady and the Patriots, you need to keep up in the scoring column if you want a shot at winning. Big Ben will do just that this coming weekend. Last year, both Brady and Roethlisberger went nuts with Ben throwing for three touchdowns and 387 yards as the Steelers lost 39-26. I expect the same type of showdown on Sunday with it basically being a toss-up as to who ends up doing better. With the Pats D giving up the most fantasy points to opposing QBs this season (actually tied with Denver), Roethlisberger just might come out on top.

 

5.           Cam Newton (vs. Min) – It absolutely does not matter who the Panthers play or how good/bad their defense might be; Cam Newton stays the same ass-kicker that he is. The guy is averaging one rushing touchdown a game this season and has only one game in which he failed to put up over 20 fantasy points. His throwing accuracy even seems to be on the upswing right now as he completed 18 of 23 passes last weekend against the Redskins. Cam is getting smarter…and better…and scarier to face as a fantasy opponent because of it.

 

6.           Matthew Stafford (@ Den) – Stafford obviously needs to be healthy and in the lineup for this ranking to stick, but I’m guessing he takes it easy in practice this week and comes out roaring this Sunday. The Broncos are tied with the Patriots in allowing the most fantasy points to opposing quarterbacks this season, so with Jahvid Best being out again and “Second Half Staff” already attempting the third most passes in the league this year, you can bet on seeing some fireworks in Mile High Stadium (Sports Authority Field) this Sunday.

 

7.           Tim Tebow (vs. Det) – Ohhhh Mr. Tebow, you are just as dirty as they come, aren’t you. After pretty much a full game of doing absolutely nothing for both the Broncos and fantasy owners, all it took was a little more than five minutes at the end of regulation for Timmy to accumulate top-five QB fantasy stats for the week. That’s kind of sick and wrong, my friends. Now even though the Lions defense is better than the Miami D he faced last Sunday, they’ve certainly been softened up as of late, especially against the run…which happens to be Tebow’s bread and butter.

 

8.           Eli Manning (vs. Mia) – Besides that first game of the season against Tom Brady, the Dolphins pass D has played pretty decent ball and isn’t nearly as bad as their stats might look. However, that doesn’t mean they won’t give up some serious fantasy points to Manning this weekend. The Giants coming off their bye week is good news for Eli owners on two fronts. First, the team will be well rested and as healthy as they’ve been maybe all season. Second, Eli loves playing in the game after the bye week as he’s averaged 314 yards and thrown eight TDs (only one INT) in post-bye-week games over the last three seasons.

 

9.           Philip Rivers (@ KC) – Rivers has been a bit of a mystery this season after putting up top-five fantasy numbers in 2010. He hasn’t thrown three TDs in a single game yet and has actually put up one or less in four straight games now after having just six such games total last year. That said, Rivers normally has good numbers against the Chiefs and since Gates is back and ready to dominate again, I expect the side-armed slinger to get back to his old ways.

 

10.       Tony Romo (@ Phi) – The Eagles may have the league’s best looking pass defense on paper, but games aren’t played in the books…they’re played on the field. Especially in divisional rivalries such as this one, you can expect all the norms (and sometimes a few players) to be thrown out the window as things tend to get just a little bit messy.  Even though Philly’s pass D was torched by another inter-division QB earlier in the season when Eli Manning lit them up for four touchdowns in their own place, they seem to be getting better by the week, so I wouldn’t expect the world from Romo in this one. Then again, in the NFC East, you just never know.
