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.

Running Backs

 

 

1.       LeSean McCoy (vs. Chi) – Last Sunday, at 23 years, 110 days old, McCoy became the youngest RB ever to put up 700-plus yards and eight or more rushing TDs in his first seven games of the season (Emmitt Smith and Eric Dickerson were also 23, but both were older in days). Being the best cut-back/stop-and-go/change-of-direction runner since Barry Sanders, I like his chances to keep up his high level of play against a Bears defense with a tendency to over-pursue the runner due to their overall team speed. Plus, Chicago will likely keep their safeties deep this Monday night to guard against the big play, so all McCoy will have to do is get past the first wave of tacklers in order to break off a couple of big runs. Last year against the Bears, LeSean had 120 total yards, but I’m expecting much more than that on Monday with this one being played in Philly.

 

2.       Michael Turner (@ Ind) – Turner may not be the running back he used to be, but he still tears apart bad run defenses and believe me, Indy definitely has one of those. In his three games against bottom-tier rush D’s this season, The Centaur ran for 114 yards or more in each one of them while averaging a touchdown per contest. With six total TDs this year, he still finds the end zone with great regularity and should continue to do so this Sunday against the Colts. Book it.

 

3.       Arian Foster (vs. Cle) – Foster has been an absolute beast since recovering from his early-season injury woes. If not for that half-game he played back in week two, Arian would actually be leading the league in fantasy points per game again this season with a whopping 22.2 per contest. Cleveland’s rush D may have kept opposing runners out of the end zone this season, but that doesn’t mean they’ve been good as they allow the seventh-most rushing yards per game on the year (127.3). With Foster putting up three 100-yard rushing games, two 100-yard receiving games and five total TDs in the last five weeks, you really can’t go wrong with the guy here even if the Browns decide to stack the line with Andre Johnson likely to sit one more week.

 

4.       Steven Jackson (@ Ari) – Like I’ve said all season, Steven Jackson looks like a man on a mission this season. Last week he single-handedly manhandled the New Orleans Saints going off for 159 yards rushing (191 total yards) and two touchdowns. In the two weeks prior to that, S-Jax faced two top-of-the-line rushing defenses (Green Bay and Dallas) and put up double-digit fantasy points against both of them. Watching him play in those three games, not only does he look bigger than normal, but he also looks to be running with more purpose than I’ve ever seen him play with before. With Arizona being tied with a few other teams for allowing the most TDs to running backs this season, look for The Beast’s mission to continue.

 

5.       Fred Jackson (vs. NYJ) – The surprise running back of the first part of the season has been playing so consistently; it’s almost no longer a surprise! Fred Jackson now has five 100-yard games on the season, the only running back in the league to do so and has rushed for no less than 66 yards in any one contest. He also has no less than 168 total yards in each of his last three games. This week, Buffalo will quickly find out that they simply cannot pass on the New York Jets and will likely get F-Jax a good 25-30 carries/touches because of it. With that type of love, there’s no way he doesn’t have a strong fantasy outing with the Jets allowing the sixth-most fantasy points to opposing RBs this year.

 

6.       Beanie Wells (vs. StL) – I gotta say, Beanie Wells is one gutsy cookie. Last week against a tough-as-nails Baltimore Ravens rush D, Wells decided to suit up and give it a go despite dealing with a sprained knee that was supposed to keep him out for at least one week, if not two or more. I would assume most fantasy owners didn’t even bother getting him in the lineup despite news of his starting, but what you missed was a nice 83-yard performance including a one-yard TD which put him in the top-ten for RBs on the week. Now that he’s past the Steelers and Ravens, the NFL set him up with a juicy St. Louis dream matchup that owners had better get him in for or else risk missing out on a show that could put you over the top for the week.

 

7.       Matt Forte (@ Phi) – Matt Forte has put up more than 150 total yards in five of seven games this season, with his lowest output otherwise being an 82-yard game against the Packers in week 3. When the Bears took on the Eagles in week 12 last season, Forte ran for 117 yards on 14 carries while adding another 22 yards on two catches. However, he couldn’t find the end zone, an ongoing deficiency that has been the only real downfall to his game since his 2008 rookie season. With the Eagles cornerbacks likely to have no problem with the Bears passing game, Forte should see a good 25 touches this Monday night and come out of the game with clear RB1 stats.

 

8.       Frank Gore (@ Was) – Last week, Gore became just the fourth running back in the modern era to rush for 125 yards or more and a TD in four straight games (O.J. Simpson, Terrell Davis and Larry Johnson). Can he do it for a fifth straight week? It’s possible as two of the last three RBs to face the Redskins went for over 100 yards with LeSean McCoy putting up 126 yards and a TD. Gore, however, tends to have his bigger games at home with 11 of his 16 100-yard games since 2008 coming in San Francisco.

 

9.       Ray Rice (@ Pit) – Rice only has two 100-yard games on the year, but one of them came at a crucial time way back in the first week of the season when the Ravens absolutely destroyed the Steelers 35-7 at home in Baltimore. Of course, being on the road is a whole different story in the NFL, so I’m not expecting the same type of output that he had in their first meeting, especially with three of his four worst fantasy games this season coming on the road. That said, Pittsburgh CAN be beat on the ground this year, and since the Ravens passing game is a bit shaky right now, you know the coaching staff is going to feed him the ball as much as possible.

 

10.     Shonn Greene (@ Buf) – Before last week’s bye, Greene put up his first 100-yard game of the season in a hard-fought 27-21 win against the Chargers. He failed to score a touchdown, which has been a major problem for him and his fantasy owners this year, but at least Rex Ryan is sticking to his guns and getting him 20 or more carries a game. With the Bills allowing a hefty 4.9 YPC this season, 20 carries should be enough to do some damage and possibly get him into the end zone as Buffalo has given up eight total TDs to opposing running backs as well.
