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.


10/16/17, 05:18 PM CDT by Houdini

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.

TARGETS FROM -&- THRU WEEK 14

 

 

Every week Pyro® takes a look at who was fed the ball the most in the previous week and who was starved from fantasy football opportunity. This is our week 14 edition, we tell you how many targets each player got this week and even break down the season total!



We’ve added a twist to the PYRO Targets Report.  You see in the RB and QB charts, I’ve included a new column – LOOKS.  For RB’s, LOOKS = Carries + Targets.  For QB’s, LOOKS = Pass Attempts + Carries.  The purpose of the report is to show overall involvement in the offense, and we agreed at PYRO HQ to add this wrinkle in, as it is a better indicator of the data we’re after.   



If you’re a first timer just checking in for this weekly report, here’s how we break it down…

 

 

The Gravy Train…

The Gravy Train showcase is to “target” the guys who will be regulars at the top of the list throughout the season.  Rain or shine, this crew will find a way to be here most weeks.  These are your work horses that you can ride to your league’s playoff door.

 


Eating with the Big Dogs…

This section showcases guys who had a great feeding by their offensive coordinators this week but who will see the top of the list infrequently.  Or, a fresh face on the rise that has shown he just may belong with the Big Dogs.

 

 

Dude, Where’s my Pizza…

Here’s where we highlight this week’s batch of players that normally should be fed but we’re starved out over the weekend.

 

 

 

Quarterbacks (Pass Attemps + Carries)

 

targets week 14 for QBs - fantasy football

 

 


The Gravy Train…

Big Ben returned from injury with a vengeance throwing for 285 yards and 3 scores. He made sure to get his favorite target involved as well in helping Mike Wallace to the biggest fantasy receiver day of the week. The Steelers however were not as fortunate as their defense allowed 34 points to the San Diego Chargers. Big Ben was having an incredible year until his injury and his return provided a big boost for the entire Steelers offensive unit.

 

 

Eating with the Big Dogs…

Nick Foles notched the first win of his career over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. The entire offense was on his shoulders after Bryce Brown managed .5 (yes that is point five) yards per carry against the stout Buc’s run defense. Foles finally worked the ball downfield a bit more, showing off the big arm he possesses for the first time this season. His day wasn’t extraordinary but he put up big fantasy numbers in the form of 381 yards passing and 3 total touchdowns. He also got his best receiver involved for the first time in weeks targeting Jeremy Maclin 13 times.

 

 

Dude Where’s my Pizza…

Aaron Rodgers put up a less than stellar fantasy day and may have well gotten your team knocked from the playoff ranks. He only had 24 pass attempts in some sloppy weather and if it weren’t for his legs his fantasy day would have been a complete waste as he totaled only 173 passing yards and no touchdowns. However his 34 yards and a score running the ball was a nice boost to get his to a lackluster 15 points.

 

 

 

 

Running Backs (Rushing Carries + Receiving Targets)

 

running backs targets from and thru week 14

 

 

The Gravy Train…

The Muscle Hamster has been running in his little exercise ball the last few weeks, but against the Eagles he slammed that thing into the wall and broke out. He saw 33 looks on Sunday tied for second most in the league this week and made good use of his 31 total touches. He rushed 28 times for 128 yards and a score while also catching 3 passes for 4 yards. Doug Martin looks to maintain his roll into a tasty matchup with the New Orleans Saints this weekend.

 


Eating with the Big Dogs…

Knowshon Moreno led the league in looks this past week after setting the table Thursday night with a nice fantasy performance. He had 37 looks, one of the highest totals in the league this year and since he has spent the majority of the year riding the pine he is the freshest running back in the league at this point. He ran 32 times for 119 yards and a score but his versatility is his best asset in this Peyton Manning led offense as he is a very capable receiver who caught 4 of his 5 targets for 48 yards. It looks like John Fox trusts him more than any other back currently active and with his fresh legs, watch out.

 

 

Dude Where’s my Pizza…

If you’re looking for C.J. Spiller you can find him languishing all the way down at 43 in this week’s rankings even though he was clearly more effective than his counterpart Fred Jackson on Sunday. Jackson saw 14 touches while Spiller only had 8. Jackson had 30 combined while Spiller had 52. Sometimes you just scratch your head and wonder why a coach beats a dead horse that ended up averaging 1.5 yards per carry over the more dynamic Spiller who was averaging 5.3 on the game and over 6 yards per carry on the season.

 

 

 

 

Wide Receivers (Receiving Targets)

 

targets thru week 14 for wide receivers

 

 

The Gravy Train…

Brandon Marshall continues his pursuit to catch Reggie Wayne in targets and his 19 on Sunday really helped his cause and gave him the highest total this week. He also turned his targets into production catching 10 passes for 160 yards and a score. When you watch Marshall play you feel like he has the ability to catch 15 passes every game as he is just that dominating of a presence on the field. Marshall looks poised to make a big push in the fantasy playoffs as his team will need the same push to find themselves in the postseason after a rough few weeks.

 

 

Eating with the Big Dogs…

A lot of 2nd tier wide receivers had big days. Whether it was the 143 yards put up by Kenny Britt, the 133 by Jason Avant, the 9 catches by Maclin and Crabtree, or the two touchdowns scored by Wallace and Alexander. These guys were all heavily involved in the passing game and look to be gaining favor in their quarterback’s hearts.

 

 

Dude Where’s my Pizza…

A.J. Green saw 8 targets on Sunday and so did his teammate Andrew Hawkins. A guy of his caliber should be in double digits targets every single week. The Cowboys game plan was to take him away and force the ball to go to the other targets but Green didn’t produce with the 8 targets he got either catching only 3 of them for 44 yards. At this time of the year you really need your studs to step up and produce but Green just didn’t do that on Sunday.

 

Tight Ends (Receiving Targets)

 

targets thru week 14 tight ends - fantasy football chart

 

 

The Gravy Train…

Jimmy Graham saw another 10 targets on Sunday but did not have his usual outburst that he typically has when seeing double digit targets. He caught only half of them for 56 yards and was kept out of the endzone. Graham has been a constant producer all season long but nowhere near the incredible numbers he put up last year. He must step up in the coming weeks in order for your faith in him to pay off.

 

 

Eating with the Big Dogs…

Aaron Hernandez led the league in targets this week with 11 and also had the best fantasy day of all tight ends. Hernandez showed on Monday night why he is a matchup nightmare running a variety of routes from a variety of different positions on the field. His final stat line of 8 catches for 58 yards and 2 scores wasn’t overpowering but his use in the Patriots offense was absolutely crucial and very fun to watch.

 

 

Dude Where’s my Pizza…

Jason Witten is the leader in tight end targets on the season yet he only saw 4 of them this week. It’s not like he was having a bad day as he caught all 4 for 62 yards but he could have done much more for his team and for fantasy owners. Fantasy owners count on a high volume of targets for Witten because he catches pretty much everything thrown his way and will pick up nice yardage. Without the consistent double digit targets that we are accustomed to seeing it is tough to count on Witten as he has never been a monster in the redzone in the mold of many tight ends.
