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 15

Quarterbacks

 

 

1.           Peyton Manning (vs Jax) – The Colts haven’t been in a position like this for a long time, meaning they haven’t had to fight for their playoff life since as long as I can remember.  The one man they depend on the most is Peyton Manning, and he’ll be the one pulling them up from mediocrity back into the light.  The last time he threw for less than 300 yards against these Jaguars was early 2008 while averaging over two TDs against them during that span.  Believe it, he’ll come alive this Sunday and show the football world what he’s made of again and by the way, in case you hadn’t noticed, Manning is now leading the NFL in passing yards (4,028) and has a chance of outdoing Dan Marino’s record of 5,084 yards in a season.

 

2.           Tom Brady (vs GB) – Brady’s hot streak right now is unprecedented and doesn’t look like it can be stopped by rain, snow, or anything else nature has to offer up.  Green Bay actually has one of the best pass defenses in the league, but with the short dink-and-dunk game that Belichick and Brady have going right now, there’s simply no way to stop it.

 

3.           Drew Brees (@ Bal) – Brees has multiple TD passes in eight of his last nine games and five 300-yard games in his last seven.  Make no mistake about it, a Cool Brees is flowing through the NFL right now, and though Baltimore may still be a formidable defense, Matt Schaub showed that they can be beat through the air last week, so don’t you go worrying about Brees when it comes to domination this Sunday.

 

4.           Philip Rivers (vs SF) – Rivers has taken a pretty severe dive these past few weeks, but because of the matchup against the 49ers this Sunday, that’s about to change.  When the Chargers need him to pass, like they will against a tough San Fran rush D, he always performs.  Confidence should be high against this team, so sit back and watch your team get off to a great start this Thursday.

 

5.           Michael Vick (@ NYG) – Putting Vick this low in the rankings rubs my fantasy soul a bit wrong, but the fact is, the Giants held Vick pretty well in their last game, so it’s tough to expect the magic he’s put forth in every other game this season.  That said, Vick normally does better on the road and doesn’t seem to have a problem going up against division foes, so please don’t think about scratching him this week against a very tough New York Giants defense.

 

6.           Matt Schaub (@ Ten) – Schaub has been awesome for fantasy owners the past couple of weeks, though it might have something to do with Andre Johnson finally being healthy and stepping his game up to a different level.  In a game that’s sure to get a ton of hype with Andre going up against Finnegan, you can be sure that Schaub will let the chips fall where they may and let ‘Dre take control of this game.  In other words, he’s a good bet.

 

7.           Matt Ryan (@ Sea) – Seattle has a terrible pass defense (30th in the league) but are pretty decent against the run.  Basically a perfect combination for a QB to do well.  Ryan isn’t an elite quarterback yet, but in a game like this where the Falcons want to gain some momentum and stay ahead of the Saints, you can be sure he’ll be looking for Roddy White a bunch and tossing the pill around enough to warrant a fantasy playoff start.

 

8.           Jon Kitna (vs Was) – Kitna threw for 242 yards and two TDs against Philly at home last game, so against a much worse pass D than the Eagles sport, you can expect at least that much this weekend at home against the Redskins, and possibly a whole lot more.

 

9.           Eli Manning (vs Phi) – Eli had his prayers answered last weekend with Hakeem Nicks coming back, though he also might have lost Steve Smith and Mario Manningham in the process.  Not to worry, because not only is Nicks twice as good as the next two guys on the team, but it looks like Derek Hagan is actually pretty good as well.  The Eagles give up a TON of passing TDs, so a couple of touchdowns and some decent yardage for Manning look to be a good bet.

 

10.       Joe Flacco (vs NO) – Flacco might find himself in a shootout this game, which can only mean good things for your fantasy QB.  The Saints haven’t given up much against the pass this year, but they also haven’t faced a cat like Joe Cool in his hometown in awhile.  He won’t win you your week, but he’ll put up enough stats to make you happy in this one, especially if the game end up with a final score around the 30’s like it should.

 

11.       Carson Palmer (vs Cle) – Palmer started his new job at the local downtown Cincinnati Wendy’s this week, but the word on the street is that he still cares more about studying the playbook in his office than making sure that every burger comes out square.  Earlier this year against the Browns, Palmer threw for 371 yards and two TDs in Cleveland en route to a 23-20 loss, so you can be sure that he’ll be doing everything he can this Sunday to make amends for the inter-state embarrassment.

 

12.       Kerry Collins (vs Hou) – Kerry Collins?  Seriously?!?!  Well, he had three TD passes last week against the Colts, so he’s definitely on a bit of a roll, but against a defense three times worse against the pass?  You can bet on the old man putting up some nice numbers, especially with Kenny Britt coming back and Chris Johnson taking up a bunch of the defensive attention.

 

13.       Josh Freeman (vs Det) – The only game Freeman didn’t throw for a touchdown pass in this year was against the Pittsburgh Steelers back in Week 3.  That said, he also hasn’t thrown for three TDs yet on the year either.  If you start him, you’re taking a bit of a gamble, but against the Lions down south in Tampa, where the weather runs warm and doesn’t affect the receivers or the passing game, you might do well in taking a chance on him.

 

14.       Jay Cutler (@ Min) – Cutler had an awesome game against this Vikings team back in Week 10 throwing for 237 yards and three TDs, but that was at home.  Cutler has always been more of a home-town QB, but the Vikings seem to be in a bit of disarray lately, especially with their stadium being “Mother Natured” out of operation.  Don’t expect the world, but if you’re sitting there with Cutler, Orton, Sanchez and Fitzpatrick to think about, take your chances on Cutler.

 

15.       Jason Campbell (vs Den) – Campbell is probably the most quintessential mediocre QB of all-time, but that’s not to say he doesn’t have his moments.  This Denver defense, and entire TEAM for that matter, is so completely disemboweled that even a Jason Campbell is worth starting against them.

 

16.       Matt Hasselbeck (vs Atl) – Hasselbeck will be getting both Big Mike Williams and Ben Obomanu back this Sunday, which should make this game a lot more interesting than it was going to be.  Atlanta has a better than average defense, but if there’s one glaring soft spot, it’s their pass D.  The 35-year old QB has proven on occasion this year that he still has a few nice fantasy weeks left in his old bones, so if you were depending on Rodgers and don’t have any sort of confidence in who you had backing him up, Hass won’t be too bad of chance to take.
