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.

WR Playoff Player Rankings - Week 1

 

QB Rankings  RB Rankings  TE Rankings

 

 

Wide Receivers

 

 

1.          Marques Colston (@ Sea) – Everyone knows Colston just had his knee scoped and might not be 100 percent in this game, but that’s not going to make a bit of difference for the big wide receiver.  In their first meeting, Marques had a season high 113 yards on eight catches to go along with his two TDs, numbers I could actually see him coming away with again this Saturday despite his gimpy knee.

 

2.          Pierre Garcon (vs NYJ) – Garcon, not Wayne, was the receiver doing the most damage in last year’s playoff meeting between these two teams.  I’m not expecting him to repeat his 11-catch, 151-yard with a TD performance, but if the Jets decide to put Revis Island on Reggie Wayne and Manning starts out hot, Garcon could easily surpass the 100-yard mark again with another possible TD.

 

3.          Dwayne Bowe (vs Bal) – Bowe has been nothing short of amazing this year putting up the second-most touchdowns in the league (first for WRs) and setting personal bests in every WR category besides receptions.  If there’s one part of the Ravens defense that’s suspect, it’s their pass D, and Bowe will be depended on by Cassel and the Chiefs to exploit it.  Expect at least double-digits in targets and every opportunity to shine this Sunday.

 

4.          Jeremy Maclin (vs GB) – Maclin has had his ups and downs this season, but his 10 touchdowns in 15 games can’t be ignored.  Packers CB Charles Woodson will likely have the pleasure of keeping up with DeSean Jackson on Sunday, so Maclin could be the one Vick looks to more often than not.  If so, expect some big numbers in his stat-line when all is said and done.

 

5.          Greg Jennings (@ Phi) – I would have ranked Jennings as the top wide receiver this week, but I don’t like his prospects as much with the possibility of Asante Samuel shadowing him all game long.  I’m sure he’ll still see a ton of targets from Rodgers regardless of Samuel, but the chance of him having the best WR game of the weekend is pretty low because of him.

 

6.          Reggie Wayne (vs NYJ) – If Wayne is shadowed by Darrelle Revis all game, he might be held to merely average numbers this weekend.  If not, he’ll get over 10 targets and come up big for the Colts.  It’s really that simple.

 

7.          DeSean Jackson (vs GB) – DeSean will have fits trying to get open this Sunday if Woodson shadows him all game as expected.  However, his ability to do damage both on reverses and as a punt returner make him different than most wide receivers, so even though he may be shut down in one respect of his game, there’s still two other aspects Green Bay will have to worry about.

 

8.          Robert Meachem (@ Sea) – Meachem is starting to see a lot more targets come his way and is always a threat for a long TD no matter who the Saints are playing.  However, this weekend Meach’s odds at grabbing a long one have got to be pretty good seeing that the Seahawks pass D sucks and that two of his five TDs came against them in their first matchup.

 

9.          Mike Williams – Sea (vs NO) – BMW had one of his three 100-yard games against the Saints earlier this year, and with Seattle likely to be passing the ball a bunch this game, he could very well end up with his fourth.

 

10.        Santonio Holmes (@ Ind) – When the Jets DO pass the ball, expect to see Holmes featured on a bunch of underneath routes for a couple of reasons.  First, Sanchez’s shoulder isn’t strong enough at this point to throw the ball deep with any sort of accuracy.  Second, the Colts pass rush can get to the QB in a hurry, so less risky plays like a quick slant or WR screen are more likely to be called than fly patterns.  This plays to Santonio’s strengths, so the opportunity should be there for the former Super Bowl MVP to shine.

 

11.        Anquan Boldin (@ KC) – Boldin’s play has been erratic this season, so I have no idea what to expect here.  If the Chiefs put their young stud cornerback (Brandon Flowers) on him, he might end up with some paltry numbers.  However, I’m guessing Flowers will be on Mason in this one and if so, Boldin’s chances of having a good game go up significantly.

 

12.        Donald Driver (@ Phi) – Veterans like Driver can’t be underestimated come playoff time, and you can bet Rodgers will use him accordingly.  Driver had a touchdown against the Eagles in the first game of the year, and with Samuel likely to be on Jennings all game, I could easily see another one come his way this Sunday.

 

13.        Derrick Mason (@ KC) – Mason had himself another solid season and turned back all the questions about his inclining age.  However, like I said with Boldin, what he does in this game could greatly depend on who the Chiefs have covering him.  His veteran savvy will get him some good looks regardless, but don’t expect too much here.

 

14.        Blair White (vs NYJ) – With Collie out for the playoffs, the door is open for the Blair White Project to walk through.  His potential as the third wide receiver on this team is for higher than those on other teams, especially when you look at what Collie did to the Jets in last year’s playoff game (seven catches, 123 yards, one TD).  He’s not as good as Austin is, but Manning loves to use his slot guys, particularly in the red-zone.

 

15.        Lance Moore (@ Sea) – Moore is nothing special as far as WRs go, but you can’t just ignore him either or else he’ll make you pay.  In fact, Lance led the team with eight TDs this season, so it’s possible he could come away with a nice game here.  You really never know who Brees will choose to throw to until it happens.

 

16.        James Jones (@ Phi) – Jones probably has a better chance to do some damage than Driver does, though you never quite know what you’re going to get from him on a week-to-week basis.  One thing’s for sure, the Pack will be throwing the ball a ton, so count on Jones to put up at least some sort of decent numbers this weekend.

 

17.        Braylon Edwards (@ Ind) – Mark Sanchez’s arm is too weak at this point to heave it downfield to Braylon, so unless a lucky pass falls into his lap, don’t expect a whole hell of a lot from the all-or-nothing type receiver this weekend.

 

18.        Jordy Nelson (@ Phi) – Nelson has carved out a nice little niche in this offense putting up career numbers across the board this year.  At 6’3”, 217 pounds, he’s the biggest receiver Green Bay has and could end up as a preferred target for Rodgers in the red-zone.

 

19.        Ben Obomanu (vs NO) – Obomanu is still the guy with the most upside in this WR corps, and like Big Mike Williams, he also had a great game the last time these two teams met.  I’m not expecting the world here, but Ben could surprise and burn the Saints deep in this one.

 

20.        Jerricho Cotchery (@ Ind) – Jerricho gets his targets by being the most dependable WR on the team, but with the Jets likely to employ a rush-heavy attack this Saturday night, he likely won’t do your fantasy team any favors.

 

21.        Jason Avant (vs GB) – Avant has his good and bad games with his best ones coming on the road.  If the Eagles get down early, Avant will have a chance to make a difference as the Eagles will have to turn to the pass.  Other than that, he’s merely another number on the field.

 

22.        Devery Henderson (@ Sea) – Henderson is a once-in-a-blue-moon type of player, as in he has one TD this season, one game with more than 65 yards, and one game with more than four catches.

 

23.        T.J. Houshmandzadeh (@ KC) – Housh is another one of the Ravens vets that could see a few tosses come his way this Sunday, but he’s barely been fantasy-worthy the entire year and I can’t see that changing now.

 

24.        Brandon Stokley (vs NO) – Like the others, Stokley also put up his best stats of the year against the Saints in Week 11 by catching all six of his targets and turning them into 76 yards.  As the oldest player on offense next to Hasselbeck, Matty may look his way a bit more this Saturday.

 

25.        Brad Smith (@ Ind) – Smith has been used in multiple fashions this year and will continue to take on the role of ‘Jack-of-all-Trades’ come Saturday.  Expect at least a couple of runs with maybe a pass and a catch sprinkled in, but his real value comes on special teams.

 

26.        Chris Chambers (vs Bal) – Five or six years ago?  Absolutely, but the only way he does anything in this game is if the Ravens triple-team Bowe… which I suppose is a possibility.

 

27.        Dexter McCluster (vs Bal) – McCluster is an electric piece for the future, but he hasn’t been the same since coming back from his ankle injury in Week 13.  He has the ability to break off a long one, but the chances of it happening are slim to none.

 

28.        Terrance Copper (vs Bal) – If the Chiefs get down early, Copper could get in there and see a few balls fly his way.  Other than that, he’s useless.
