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.

Tight Ends                 (Updated:  Friday, Dec. 23 - 2:11PM CT)

 

 

1.       Jimmy Graham (vs. Atl – Monday Night) – Jimmy Graham and Rob Gronkowski have been tag-teaming my top spot in the rankings for quite some time now and should continue to do so through the end of the season. Graham’s consistency is one of the bigger reasons why as he has been targeted seven or more times and caught at least four balls in every single game this year while also putting up 54 yards or more in all but one game. When the Saints faced the Falcons back in Week 10, the big 6’7” former basketball player had himself quite a game catching seven balls on 12 targets for 82 yards and a touchdown. I’m betting he out-does those numbers this time around with the game being played at home.


2.       Rob Gronkowski (vs. Mia) –Rob Gronkowski failed to get into the end zone last weekend for only the fifth time this season snapping a six-game streak of him grabbing at least one a touchdown. Week 16, however, should see a new streak started with the Patriots set to take on the Miami Dolphins. Back in Week 1, Tom Brady went off on the Dolphins for 517 yards and four touchdowns with 86 yards and one TD of it going to Gronk. Strange as it may sound, but the Patriots other tight end, Aaron Hernandez, actually out-performed Rob by catching seven balls for 103 yards and a TD. Basically, there should be enough statistics to make everyone happy this Saturday, most importantly Gronkowski’s fantasy owners.


3.       Antonio Gates (@ Det) – Antonio Gates may not be the same dominating player he was in years past, but he’s still one of the top five tight ends in the league and actually has the third-most fantasy points behind Gronkowski and Graham since Week 7. This week he’ll be facing a Lions team that has done a good job overall against opposing TEs this year, but the better ones—such as Jason Witten, Tony Gonzalez and Jimmy Graham—have all done just fine. I expect Gates to more than hold his own in this one with the game possibly turning into a shootout.


4.       Jermichael Finley (vs. Chi – Sunday Night, Christmas) – Though Finley has turned in a fantasy season far below expectations, he still ranks amongst the best in the league, mostly due to a single game he had against the Chicago Bears back in Week 3. In that game, Jermichael caught seven of the eight balls thrown his way with three of them going for touchdowns. You can’t reasonably expect the same outcome this time around, but without WR Greg Jennings in the lineup last weekend, he did go for 83 yards while being targeted 10 times (both team-highs). I would call it a severe disappointment if he catches less than six balls for 80 yards this Sunday night against a Bears defense that has allowed the fifth-most fantasy points to opposing TEs this season.


5.       Tony Gonzalez (@ NO – Monday Night) – Though he had his worst game of the season in last week’s win against the Jaguars, this has certainly been a season to remember for the 35-year-old Gonzalez as he currently ranks third amongst all tight ends in receptions, touchdowns and fantasy points. Earlier in the year when the Falcons squared off with the Saints, Tony G had one of his better games of the season catching six balls on ten targets for 71 yards and a touchdown. In fact, since joining Atlanta in 2009, Gonzo has caught less than six balls in a game against the Saints just once (five games) and actually had his only 100-yard performance in a Falcons uniform in New Orleans last year. With this possibly being the second-to-last regular season game of his storied career, look for Gonzo to leave it all out on the field this Monday night and show his innumerable fans out there (and fantasy owners) what they’ll be missing when he’s gone.
