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.

TOTAL FANTASY POINTS PER GAME SCORED BY NFL TEAM OFFENSES 


fantasy football points scored by NFL offenses chart - week 15 2012 NFL season

 

 

The Broncos offense has been getting better and better each week and it now looks like Peyton knows the ins and outs of this offense just as he did in Indy. This offense has survived the loss of its top running back and is now in the hands of a former first round pick that had been wasting away on the inactive list. Moreno showed his versatility this week both on the ground and through the air and was also entrusted with keeping Peyton upright. These receivers are also some of the best in the league and have an immense young talent in the form of Demaryius Thomas who should continue to get better and better as the years go on.


What was thought to be the Panthers biggest strength at the beginning of the season has turned out to be one of their more glaring weaknesses so far this season, as the running backs have left a lot to be desired. We can blame some of this on the touchdown vulture that is Cam Newton  and also some terrible run blocking but it also has a lot to do with their complete ineffective especially when you compare their performance to last season. Injuries have played some part in the lackluster performance but what was expected to be a three headed monster of Jonathan Stewart, DeAngelo Williams, and Mike Tolbert has barely produced like one good back. Their 13.9 RB points per game has fallen to 5th worst in the league.  


Two teams battling for a playoff spot in the NFC east both jumped 5 spots in the rankings this week. The Redskins have been led by RG3, who is currently fantasies top scorer, all season long and have used their spread attack to slice through defenses. The Giants however have been a strong running team and are getting 21.4 points a game from their backfield. Bradshaw and company have been explosive and provided some of the more memorable rushing games of the year this season and they are now tied for 4th in fantasy points by their running backs.


There were 4 teams who each fell 3 spots for various different reasons this past week. The Packers played in crappy weather and were unable to get their passing game going to its typical peak performance level. The Colts got into a drag out battle with the Titans but didn’t put up the numbers they usually do in the pass game while still pulling out a victory. The Bengals and Cowboys each fell as they were in a defensive battle each keeping the other teams offense in check. All four of these teams will look to rebound this weekend as they will all be battling for playoff positioning.

 

 

TOTAL FANTASY POINTS PER GAME ALLOWED BY NFL TEAM DEFENSES 

 

fantasy football points given up by NFL teams by position

 

 

The New York jets defense rose 3 spots as they had the fortunes of playing the Jacksonville Jaguars who were featuring their 4th running back of the season. The Jets defense’s strength even without Darrel Revis most of the season has been its play against opposing wide receivers as they are among the best at shutting them down. The Jets are susceptible to the run game however as they have allowed opposing running backs to put up over 20 points a game against them. Rex Ryan knows this teams shortcomings and has been trying to run the ball a lot so the team doesn’t get into shootouts and allow his underwhelming quarterback to get the most important stat of all, the W.


The Atlanta Falcons defense has been in freefall in recent weeks and now finds itself in 14th. The Falcons are not strong anywhere on defense and allow the opposition to attack whichever way it sees fit, whether that is through the air or the ground. Recently Atlanta has been getting torched in the run game allowing 19.9 points to opposing running backs, not to mention the 116 yards Cam Newton just put on them for their second loss of the season.


The Cowboys and Rams both jumped 5 spots in the rankings as they are able to keep opposing passing games from destroying them. They both allow slightly below average numbers to quarterbacks, wide receivers, and tight ends. If these teams could bolster their run defense they would be ready to take that next step into the realm of the elite defenses.


The Houston Texans defense took a big freefall this week falling 7 spots as they were demolished by the Patriots on Monday Night Football. The Patriots were able to succeed greatly in the pass game early, gaining a big advantage and then let their running backs go to work to completely deflate the Texans defense and leave J.J. Watt standing on the sideline next to his coaches when all was said and done. The Houston Team has proved in primetime that they can be passed on and when an elite quarterback comes to town they can give up big points.

 

 


 

THE DIFFERENTIAL FOR OFFENSIVE FANTASY POINTS SCORED

VS. FANTASY POINTS ALLOWED BY THE DEFENSE

 

differential in fantasy points scored by NFL offenses and NFL defenses in 2012 - week 15

 


The Patriots with their shellacking of the Houston Texans were able to vault themselves all the way to second in our rankings jumping three spots. The Patriots always seem to show up for primetime games when the whole nation is watching and usually do so in a big fashion, especially the Stetson man himself. The Patriots are also known for taking the offenses best weapon away from them and forcing them to go another direction and execute to perfection. On the other side of the coin the Texans fell 4 spots as their defense was torched and their offense was held in check. Matt Schaub was eventually pulled for TJ Yates, more to save him from injury than his performance, but that is just an idea how absolutely terrible this game was for the Texans.


The Seattle Seahawks were the biggest riser this week as they jumped 6 spots after dropping 58 points on a tough Arizona Cardinals defense. Their defense also showed up in a big fashion as they shut out the Cardinals and forced 8 turnovers. Dominating is the only word the Seahawks can use to describe this performance as they destroyed 2 quarterbacks and also scored 2 defensive touchdowns. The only way this could have gone any worse is if the Cardinals would have lost another quarterback to injury. The Cardinals on the other hand were the biggest fallers this week falling 5 spots all the way to 29th. Ever since starting off as one of the biggest surprises around the Cardinals have been one of the biggest freefalls I can remember. Time for a new direction in Arizona as the quarterback play has been some of the worst in recent memory.
