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.

Pyro Fantasy Football Power Rankings

Week 10 Power Rankings for all 32 NFL Teams

 

 

 

Welcome to the Pyromaniac.com Fantasy Power Rankings. This weekly article is where you will find out which teams are dominating, or are being dominated, on the offensive and defensive side of the ball, in terms of Fantasy points. See below to see who the BEST team in the league. These charts and our insight will help you visualize how the season has gone to this point, and give you a better feel for how the season will go week to week.  By using these charts you will have a better understanding of which matchups to exploit on a week-to-week basis, and DOMINATE your fantasy league.

 

 


TOTAL FANTASY POINTS PER GAME SCORED BY NFL TEAM OFFENSES


fantasy football points scored by NFL offenses thru week 10 of the 2012 NFL season

Tampa Bay has stormed up these charts in recent weeks on the back of the MUSCLE HAMSTER. He has carried the Bucs on his back to the 6th ranked offense in the league ahead of the likes of the New York Giants and Pittsburgh Steelers and just behind the Atlanta Falcons. Doug Martin’s monster fantasy day also vaulted the Tampa Bay running backs into a third ranking, increasing their score four full points! Their receivers also sport a top 5 ranking, things are looking up in Tampa Bay and they have found a nice mix of run and big pass plays to exploit defenses.


The Kansas City Chiefs have no entered the area no team wants to be in, they are suffering from the worst quarterback play in the league. They are the only team in the league that is suffering single digit fantasy points from their quarterback play, and that includes the anemic Jacksonville Jaguars. Turnovers have plagued the Matt Cassel and there are no other viable options on this team, and yes this includes Brady Quinn. The Chiefs need to seriously assess this position in the offseason or else this offense will soon find themselves alone at the bottom of the league.


Two teams starting rookie quarterbacks made big jumps up the ranking this weekend, the Indianapolis Colts and Seattle Seahawks both jumped five spots in the rankings in this installment. Andrew Luck put up the most yards ever by a rookie and Russell Wilson added three passing TDs. These quarterbacks are in very different situations but both stepped up in a big way on Sunday. Luck is the master of his offense and it all goes through him while Wilson is the game manager who leans on the run game and short passing game.


There were four offenses who were shut down by opposing defenses and each lost 4 spots in the rankings. The Giants offense was stifled by the Steelers D as they shut down the passing and running games in a much anticipated match up. The Bills were dominated by the Houston Texans led by JJ Watt. Everyone else besides Adrian Peterson on the Vikings was shut down by the Seahawks as Ponder threw for 63 yards. The Ravens also held down every one on the Browns except for running back Trent Richardson. What do all of these teams have in common? Each had their quarterback fail to throw a touchdown on Sunday.

 

 


TOTAL FANTASY POINTS PER GAME ALLOWED BY NFL TEAM DEFENSES

 

which defenses are letting up the most fantasy football points - read this chart to find out (thru week 10 of the NFL season)

 

The Cleveland Browns have been climbing out of the cellar the last few weeks, which non-coincidently aligns with the return of their best defensive player, Joe Haden from suspension. They are still an inviting matchup for opposing receivers but most of the damage was done while Haden was not on the field for four games. Since his return from the suspension however their rankings against receivers have vastly improved going from 30.7 points per game after week 7 to 26.2 as of now. What an effect this guy has on this Browns defense.

 

 

In a league where offenses are the talk of the town, the best bet not to fall in the rankings is to be on a bye week. Two of the 4 teams on bye weeks increased in the rankings, the others, well one had no way to move up as they were number 1 (49ers) and the other fell only one spot (Rams). The Patriots were the biggest beneficiary as they jumped 4 spots just sitting at the beach sipping margaritas. The Jets also jumped a spot in the rankings all while their trio of over rated guys sat at home.

 

 

The Baltimore Ravens got their defense back on track as the faced the young Cleveland offense on Sunday. They were the biggest riser this week jumping 7 spots on the defensive side. They are slowly playing better against the run on the pass, and as the season continues with their young guys getting more and more snaps it can only start to look better.

 

 

Two defenses fell 7 spots in the rankings, as they were torched by two rookies this weekend, and one of them wasn’t RG3. Doug Martin and Andrew Luck caused the Oakland Raiders and Miami Dolphins too drop 7 spots almost on their own. In a week the Raiders go from allowing 18.2 points a game to 22.6, I guess that’s what one of the best fantasy days ever can do to a defense. As for the Dolphins they were allowing 15.9 points a game too quarterbacks to 17.1 after a rookie put it on them on Sunday.

 

 

 

THE DIFFERENTIAL FOR OFFENSIVE FANTASY POINTS SCORED

VS. FANTASY POINTS ALLOWED BY THE DEFENSE

 

the differential from NFL teams offensive fantasy points scored to defensive points let up

 

 

The Pittsburgh Steelers and Houston Texans each rose a spot this week further cementing their spots in the top five. Both of their defenses were stifling this weekend against good offensive football teams. The offenses also played well each staying true to their identity and thriving buy doing so.

 

 

Looking at the chart you can clearly see breaks in the talent level of teams. The top 10 teams all have double digit differentials. Ten through fifteen are all in the single digits with positive differentials. 15 to 25 all are negative but in the single digits and the final 7 teams are double digits in the negatives whether it is to blame on their offense or defense. Look out another tier system!

 

 

The Indianapolis Colts made a huge jump in the standings by defeating the Miami Dolphins both for fantasy purposes and their team’s playoff hopes. They jumped 7 spots in the rankings and have been getting hotter since the bye week. Each week Andrew Luck looks better and better and so does this defense. They are starting to look like a team no one wants to play especially with the rallying cry they have around coach Chuck Pagano.

 

 

The Vikings and the Dolphins each fell 6 places over the weekend. Each were beat up on defense and their offenses didn’t exactly light the world on fire. Before this weekend each looked the they would be contenders for the final playoff spot in their respective leagues, but when playing two other contenders it seems as if they were found out for what they really are, pretenders.
