Minnesota Vikings

FanDuel Triple Play


Davonte Adams vsNO - $6,900 – Adams was peppered with 10 targets and caught a TD from Brett Hundley in week 6. The peppering will continue to be hot against the Saints defense which is giving up the 6th most points to WRs.

Jimmy Graham @NYG - $5,800 - The Giants are giving up the most points to TE’s this season. Sitting at the top of list in allowing 14.2 FF to the position that has the best basketball players. Graham is a slam dunk this week.

Minnesota Vikings vsBAL - $4,700 – The Vikings are at home hosting the Baltimore Ravens. Let me break this one down a bit further. The Baltimore Ravens are playing at the Minnesota Vikings this week and the Vikings DST only cost $4,700. PLAY THE VIKINGS DST!

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.

QB Rankings  WR Rankings  TE Rankings

 

 

Running Backs                 (Updated:  Saturday, Dec. 24 - 11:54AM CT)

 

 

1.           Arian Foster (@ Ind – Thursday Night) – Due to injury, Foster didn’t get to play against Indianapolis in the Texans first game of the season—but backup Ben Tate did and racked up 116 rushing yards along with a goal-line TD. In 2010, however, Arian faced the Colts twice averaging 202.5 total yards (166.5 rushing) and two touchdowns in their two hard-fought matchups. Things have changed quite a bit this season with Peyton Manning sidelined for the year, but one thing that hasn’t changed is the atrocity that IS the Colts rush defense. 10 different running backs have put up 100-plus total yards against them this year as the Colts have allowed the third-most fantasy points to RBs this season. I fully expect a monster game out of last year’s fantasy MVP this Thursday.


2.           Ray Rice (vs. Cle) – With the way Ray Rice ate the Browns alive in their first matchup, it was very tough not to put him in my one-spot this week. However, for those of you keeping track, you might as well call Rice the 1B of Week 16 because he should be able to do some serious fantasy damage once again on Saturday. Part of the reason he’s not on top is because the Browns have played much tighter against the run since Rice’s first outburst allowing just 76 yards to Rashard Mendenhall two weeks ago and only 51 to Beanie Wells last weekend. Neither of those two have Ray’s make-you-miss capabilities, though, so I still believe Rice will come out golden in this one. But you better believe Cleveland will be bearing down on him all game long…I’m just not sure it will make a difference. Not after his 204-yard performance the first time around.


3.           LeSean McCoy (@ Dal) – Once thought to be too small to be an every-down back in this league, the 5’11”, 208-pound LeSean McCoy continues to proves the haters wrong on weekly basis as he now leads the NFL with 20 touchdowns (17 Rush, 3 Rec), four more than the next guy on the list (Rob Gronkowski). This week he’ll be facing a Cowboys team he absolutely tore apart back in Week 8 to the tune of 200 total yards (185 rushing) and two TDs. It will be different this time with both teams playing for their playoff lives and this one coming down in Dallas, but McCoy seems to have their number there too as he put up 149 rushing yards on 16 carries when they played there in 2010. There’s only been one week this year when LeSean didn’t score a TD and in that game, he ran for 113 yards. Basically, I can all but guarantee he does something for your fantasy team this weekend.


4.           Maurice Jones–Drew (@ Ten) – Maurice Jones-Drew and the Jaguars faced the Titans back in Week 1 and came up with one of their four wins on the season, 16-14. Jones-Drew was a big part of that win scoring the Jags only touchdown while rushing for 97 yards on 24 carries and quite frankly, the kid hasn’t slowed down since. Only once in 14 games this year has MJD been held to less than 84 yards rushing and he still scored a touchdown in that game. You also might think that because the Jaguars are almost always playing from behind on the road that he might not get the carries necessary to do well but the fact is, three of his four 100-yard games have come away from home. Basically, against a Titans defense that has allowed six 100-yard rushers this season (most recently last weekend when Donald Brown went off for 161 yards) along with the tenth-most fantasy points to opposing RBs, you can bet on a nice fantasy performance out of the Wrecking Ball this Saturday.


5.           Michael Bush (@ KC) – Ever since Darren McFadden went out with an injury in Week 7, Michael Bush has quietly amassed 985 total yards (703 rushing) in eight games while crossing the goal-line on five different occasions. He also has four games with 96 or more yards (two 100-yard games) and now sits just outside the top-10 for fantasy RBs in a standard scoring system. Basically, he’s been awesome. The first time these two teams hooked up happened to be the game Run DMC went down and Bush came in to rush for 99 yards on just 17 carries. In fact, of Bush’s three 100-yard games from 2009-10, two of them came against these same Kansas City Chiefs. Considering the Chiefs have allowed the seventh-most fantasy points to opposing RBs this season, I think fantasy owners will be very happy starting him this weekend when all is said and done.
