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 WEEK 11

 

 

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. In week 11 there are some new faces to keep an eye on, and some regulars to the list! 



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 Attempts + Carries)

 

targets from week 11 chart - QBs

 

 

The Gravy Train…

 

Even though Tom Brady had only the 14th most looks this week, he absolutely made the most of his opportunities. As usual he completed two thirds of his passes and looked crisp all game long. He made sure to get Gronk involved early and often and made sure he had a monster performance. He showed Andrew Luck a thing or two as well putting up a stellar 10.1 yards per attempt. Tom Brady made the game look easy and that is what legends do.

 

Eating with the Big Dogs…

 

Ummmm are you kidding me? Matt Schaub now is second in the record books for passing yards in a single game? A feat that Manning, Brady, Rodgers, and Brees have not accomplished. He put up 527 yards in an overtime shootout with the Jags and who had their backup quarterback and third string running back playing feature roles in? It’s not like he was inefficient either putting up a 9.6 YPA and throwing 5 TDs. Schaub led the Texans to victory and helped everyone on the offense have big days except for the usual top dog Arian Foster who was only able to muster 92 yards on his 31 touches.

 

Dude Where’s my Pizza…

 

John Skelton must be asking much more than that after this weekend. He started off terribly and was quickly pulled for an overmatched rookie. The Cardinals already had a 13 point lead and matt Ryan was on his way to throwing 5 INT’s but Skelton found himself squarely on the bench. The Cardinals are now officially reeling and know even less about their quarterback situation than they did at the beginning of the season. 

 


 

Running Backs (Rushing Carries + Receiving Targets)

 

targets from week 11 chart - RBs

 

  

The Gravy Train…

 

Trent Richardson continues to get look after look with almost no back to take a few carries from him. This weekend he saw an incredible 35 looks. The best part of owning Richardson right now might be the added value he is receiving in the passing game where he was targeted 8 times a Darren Sproles type number. He caught 6 of these targets for 49 yards on top of his 95 rushing yards. With a workload like his, there is nothing for an owner not to like.

 

Eating with the Big Dogs…

 

Jalen Parmele had 27 touches this weekend. The thing is he was probably in zero of your lineups and probably not even a twinkle in your eye. He wasn’t overly effective with his carries gaining only 83 total yards but it was better than the game Rashad Jennings decided to bring resulting in negative yards. Parmele probably will never see a workload like this again but he at least got a few more than 15 minutes for fame.

 

Dude Where’s my Pizza…

 

In what looked like a prime matchup for Stevan Ridley to exploit and have a big game he only got 13 looks. He also didn’t do very much with his looks managing only 28 yards on his 13 carries. Luckily for his owners he was able to find the endzone or else this would have been devastating to owners. The part that worries fantasy owners the most is that he is nonexistent in the passing game, and when the Pats get into a shootout he will most likely be tied to the bench because of it.

 

 


Wide Receivers (Receiving Targets) 

 

targets from week 11 charts - WRs

 

 

The Gravy Train…

 

A.J, Green scored again for the ninth straight game and is approaching a Jerry Rice record of 13 straight games. In only his second season even being mentioned with the GOAT is a huge honor. He continues to be targeted often, surpassing 100 looks on the year. He saw 12 targets on the day, catching 6 for 91 yards. No one can complain about the production of Green this season and at his age his ceiling looks amazing.

 

Eating with the Big Dogs…

 

Justin Blackmon had a huge game and showed great chemistry with backup quarterback Chad Henne. He saw 13 targets and now has 72 on the season, the targets have been there but the production has been lacking. He finally had a breakout game averaging over 30 yards a catch on his 7 catches. He also showed game breaking ability catching an 81-yard touchdown.

 

Dude Where’s my Pizza…

 

A number of big name receivers were less targeted less than they ever should be. Colston was targeted 6 times, Eric Decker and Jordy Nelson were each targeted 5 times, and Brandon Marshall was targeted a lowly 4 times with Jason Campbell at the helm. Each of them have averaged way more targets over the course of the season and they each must be asking their signal callers to be fed a bit more.

 

 

 

Tight Ends (Receiving Targets)

 

targets from week 11 chart - tight ends

 

 

The Gravy Train…

 

Jason Witten continues to get the ball thrown his way constantly. He saw another 8 targets and is already the most targeted tight end in the league. He continues to catch a lot of passes but he will never be the touchdown producer that Gronk is or a Big yardage guy like graham but he will continue to be targeted, catch a lot of pass, and average about 10 yards a catch. With the up and down play of many tight ends in the league you could do much worse on a week to week basis.

  

Eating with The Big Dogs…

 

Dallas Clark looked like the Dallas Clark of the Colts and so did his stat line. He was targeted by Freeman 11 times on Sunday and is continuing to look better and better each week. He caught 7 of his 11 targets for 58 yards and a score. If Clark can continue to produce at a similar level the Buccaneers can really start to look like an offense that no one in the NFL would look forward to playing with an elite running back, two good receivers, a good quarterback, and a good tight end in Clark.

 

Dude Where’s my Pizza…

 

Antonio Gates had another game where he went home scratching his head wondering where his targets went. The Chargers played the Broncos who happen to give up the most points to opposing tight ends. Gates was licking his chops and so were his owners, but as usual this season with Gates was frustrated by Philip Rivers getting only 4 targets, catching only 2 for 17 yards.
