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.

Pyro Fantasy Football Power Rankings

Week 11 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.  This week we have added averages at the bottom so you can compare a teams score to the average and see exactly where they stand in evaluating the matchups.

 

 

TOTAL FANTASY POINTS PER GAME SCORED BY NFL TEAM OFFENSES

fantasy football pyro power rankings for NFL offenses

 

 

The Cincinnati Bengals jumped an impressive 6 spots in the rankings on the arm of Andy Dalton who completed 4 TD passes to 4 different receivers. He was efficient, completing 70% of his passes on the day and just spread the bay all over the field against the Giants. The Bengals offense jumped into the top 10, now ranking 8th being carried by their wide receiver corps, most notably AJ Green who has now scored a touchdown in 8 straight games. The complimentary receivers of Andrew Hawkins and Mohamed Sanu have also picked up their play the last few weeks giving Dalton and the offense more options to throw to, with all the attention being on AJ Green their emergence has really helped the offense take it to the next level.


The Bears offense was stymied on Sunday night in a sloppy game by both teams. So far this season the Bears offense has failed to meet expectations, coming in at 22nd in our rankings currently. This offense with the addition of Brandon Marshall was expected to take a jump but so far this season they have just been middle of the pack. The offense is being dragged down by the absolute terrible performance of their tight ends, which rank dead last in the league in everything except sucking. Now with Jay Cutlers concussion things are only looking worse, especially with a tough matchup against the 49ers on Monday night. With game manager Jason Campbell potentially starting the Bears defense is going to need to continue carrying the slack of the offense.


The Ravens and Bills each took big steps this week, putting up big numbers against lackluster defenses. The Ravens dropped the double nickel against the Raiders who have been absolutely torched the last two weeks. Flacco had a big game where he had 4 total touchdowns, throwing to the forgotten Dennis Pitta and the explosive Torrey Smith. The Bills shredded the Patriots defense with good game from Fred Jackson, CJ Spiller, and Ryan Fitzpatrick.


The Texans and Giants both fell in the rankings this past weekend. The Texans as expected fell a few spots by taking on the stingy Bears Defense. The Giants however took on the Bengals who were a bottom third defense and struggled mightily. The Texans fed Arian Foster the ball all night long in what was a wet and wild game in Chicago, he carried the team to victory after lousy production from pretty much every other player on the offense. The Giants offense struggled again both running and throwing the ball as Eli has been roughed up and looked even worse that last few weeks.

 

 

TOTAL FANTASY POINTS PER GAME ALLOWED BY NFL TEAM DEFENSES

 

fantasy football pyro power rankings - the NFL defenses that are allowing the most fantasy football points

 

The San Diego Chargers Defense has been making big strides over the last few weeks and now is on the cusp of the top-10. They don’t dominate in one category, but they are above average against quarterbacks, running backs, and tight ends. As for defending wide receivers they are only slightly above average. The defense has been making strides the last few weeks and slowly moving up the leader boards.


After a rough couple of weeks to start the season the Pittsburgh Steelers have battled back to be one of the most stingy defenses around. They now come in second in the points allowed rankings, in the top five against quarterbacks, running backs, and wide receivers. They are also above average in defending tight ends. They are doing this all without one of their best defensive players in Troy Polamalu. The Steelers are absolutely creating havoc against the quarterback, currently representing the stingiest mark against opposing passers.


The Chiefs have been pulling their defense out of the cellar the last few weekends and jumped 6 spots this week in the rankings. How much of this can be attributed to playing the rusty Byron Leftwich who might have the slowest release in all of football outside of Tim Tebow is up for debate. When Big Ben was in the game the offense seemed to be clicking, once he was out the game looked much different, but hey who are the Chiefs to complain as they finally caught a break this season.


The Atlanta Falcons defense was picked apart by Drew Brees and the Saints offense. After this dismantling the Falcons fell 8 spots in the rankings. They allowed Jimmy Graham a huge game of 146 yards and 2 scores while also allowing a 148 rushing yards. The Falcons are now below average in stopping the run, something that is usually a must for a team that wants to go all the way.

 

 

 

THE DIFFERENTIAL FOR OFFENSIVE FANTASY POINTS SCORED

VS. FANTASY POINTS ALLOWED BY THE DEFENSE

 

 

fantasy football pyro power rankings - differential from week 10 to week 11

 

 

The system continues to be enamored with the play of the Detroit Lions despite the fact they keep losing football games. They got beat up this week by Adrian Peterson and a Percy Harvin-less Minnesota Vikings team. Lucky for the Lions our rankings don’t take into account special team as they would most certainly be lower on the list. Blair Walsh kicked 4 field goals on the day and the last time these two teams played the return game of the Vikings was the deciding factor. The Lions have to get this area of their game fixed if they plan on winning games at the rate they did last season.


The Dolphins again had a terrible game where they were absolutely demolished by the Tennessee Titans 37-3. They remain at 25 in our rankings but just two weeks ago they were being talked about as potential wildcard contenders, how quickly things can change in today’s NFL. The Titans aren’t very good either so a whooping of this magnitude is quite the eye opener.


The San Diego Chargers now sport a positive differential. They are still a 4-5 team but look to be on the rise. Philip Rivers has performed at his best the last two weeks and they look to keep the momentum going this weekend in a big division game against the Peyton Manning led Broncos. This team must push it to the next level in the next few weeks if they plan to make a late season playoff push like they usually do under Coach Norv Turner.


The Buccaneers plummeted 6 spots in the rankings somehow in a game that they won by ten. Their defense has been lacking getting torched in the passing game allowing Rivers to put up 337 yards and Ram cast away Danario Alexander to pile up 138 yards. The Defense also recently traded away Aquib Talib so don’t look for any improvement in the pass coverage in coming weeks. Luckily for the team the offense has seemed to turn a corner and keep this team in the win column in recent weeks.
