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.

QB Player Rankings – Week 12

(BYE:  NONE!)

 

RB Rankings  WR Rankings  TE Rankings

 

 

Quarterbacks



 

1.       Aaron Rodgers (@ Atl) – In the past five games, while the Atlanta defense hasn’t given up a ton of yards, they’ve still allowed no fewer than two passing TDs to opposing QBs.  Two apiece to Sam Bradford and Josh Freeman, and three apiece to Joe Flacco, Carson Palmer and Kevin Kolb.  The way I see it, Bradford and Freeman are a step below Flacco, Palmer and Kolb at this point in their careers, while Rodgers is at least a step above them.  If the pattern stays true, Rodgers should end up with four TDs and right around 300 yards in this one.

 

2.       Drew Brees (@ Dal) – Brees is on a serious hot streak right now throwing no less than two TDs over the last six games while averaging 306.3 yards in that time.  With Dallas allowing an average of 303.4 yards and three TDs to opposing QBs during their last five games, this has the makings of a fantasy explosion for Drew.

 

3.       Kyle Orton (vs StL) – Orton has been outstanding at home tossing up an average of two TDs per game at Mile High Stadium this year.  St. Louis has a pretty good defense all the way around, but I expect Captain Neckbeard to come out rolling after what happened to the Broncos last Monday night.

 

4.       Philip Rivers (@ Ind) – Rivers has now thrown for the third most yards through 10 games of a season in the history of the NFL (Drew Brees (2008) – 3,251; Rich Gannon (2002) – 3,195).  He won’t have as easy of a time this weekend against the Colts as he did last Monday night against the Broncos, but he should still be able to rattle off some pretty impressive stats, especially with Vincent Jackson back in the mix.

 

5.       Peyton Manning (vs SD) – The Chargers have one of the best defenses in the league, especially against the pass, but challenges like these always seem to bring the best out of Peyton.  I wouldn’t expect a 350-yard three-TD game by any means, though stranger things have happened.

 

6.       Michael Vick (@ Chi) – This might be the lowest I rank Vick for the remainder of the season as the Bears defense has been outstanding against the pass this year.  They’ve also been real good against the run so with the quickness they possess on that side of the ball, Vick may find himself a bit limited in this game.  However, this IS Michael Vick we’re talking about, so anything can and usually does happen.

 

7.       Ben Roethlisberger (@ Buf) – The Bills don’t give up much in the passing game in terms of yards, but that’s mostly due to the fact that teams know they can run all over them all game long.  That said, they do give up a ton of TDs (two per game), so Roethlisberger should come out just fine for your fantasy team this Sunday.

 

8.       Shaun Hill (vs NE) – The kid is doing a fantastic job this in relief of the perennially injured Matthew Stafford.  In the six games he’s started and finished this year, he’s averaged 290.3 yards and 1.8 TDs per game.  He’s also averaged 17.7 fantasy points per game (basic scoring system) which would rank him eighth in the league, just ahead of Drew Brees and Tom Brady.

 

9.       Tom Brady (@ Det) – I don’t expect more than 250 yards and two TDs in this one for Brady.  Could it happen?  Absolutely, but this has the look and feel of a game where the Patriots try to establish an equal sort of dominance between the run and the pass.  The Lions defense can be had in both ways, so why not use both ways to beat them?

 

10.     Matt Schaub (vs Ten) – For all of his weapons, Schaub has been quite a disappointment this year.  However, last year he threw for an average of 331 yards and three TDs against these Titans, so he seems to like playing against them.  I don’t expect those gaudy numbers to repeat themselves, but close to 300 and a couple of TDs might be in order.

 

11.     Mark Sanchez (vs Cin) – Sanchez may not be an elite quarterback just yet, but he sure has been tossing the pill around like one lately.  Dirty Sanchize has averaged 316.7 yards and two TDs a game over the last three weeks, so with the Bengals pass D being a bit sketchy, I could easily see a nice 275-yard, two-TD game out of him.

 

12.     Matt Ryan (vs GB) – This is one of Ryan’s toughest matchups to date, but I expect him to rise to the challenge.  In his five home games so far this year, Matty Ice produced three-TD games in three of them while also tossing up his three highest yardage totals this year.  Plain and simple, Matty loves playing at home, as evidenced by his 18-1 career record at the Georgia Dome (lost 24-20 in his rookie season to Denver on a 4th quarter TD pass by Jay Cutler with 5:35 left in the game).

 

13.     Joe Flacco (vs TB) – Flacco may end up with two TDs and 250 yards in this game, but the more likely scenario is that the Ravens run the ball through a porous Buccaneers D-line all game and basically give Flacco the week off.  He still might get off a TD or two regardless though.

 

14.     Eli Manning (vs Jax) – Eli has lost his WR1, WR2, WR4 and WR5 so far this year.  That leaves Mario Manningham, Derek Hagan, and Duke Calhoun to pass to.  I’m more than expecting the Giants to run the ball a ton this game, but that doesn’t mean Manning won’t be able to throw up a couple of scores against one of the worst three defenses in the league.

 

15.     Matt Cassel (@ Sea) – Normally I’d be hard-pressed to tell you to start Matt Cassel, but against an awful pass D like the Seahawks have, he could be looking at around 250 yards or so with a couple of TDs.

 

16.     Brett Favre (@ Was) – When Minnesota decided to close the door on Brad Childress, they also might have opened up a window for Brett Favre.  The entire team will be a bit happier this weekend without their former dictator around, and we all know how loose Favre likes to play.  With Sidney Rice back and the Vikings playing bottom tier pass defense, look for Favre to show a little bit of his old fire on Sunday.
