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.

TE Player Rankings – Week 10

(BYE:  Green Bay, New Orleans, Oakland, San Diego)

 

 

QB Rankings  RB Rankings  WR Rankings

 

Tight Ends

 

 

1.       Jacob Tamme (vs Cin) – Alright, I’ve seen enough to know this kid is for real.  Or at least to know that whoever plays the tight end position with Peyton Manning as his QB is going to be a fantasy stud.  Tamme reeled in 11 catches on 17 targets last weekend for 108 yards and a touchdown.  I don’t know if he can repeat that against a Bengals D that’s much better against tight ends than the Eagles are, but he’s definitely earned top billing this week regardless.

 

2.       Jason Witten (@ NYG) – Witten has clearly become one of Kitna’s favorite targets, and he’s going to need him this Sunday with the Giants likely rushing down his throat all game.  Three weeks ago against New York, Jason racked up 13 targets, nine catches, 95 yards and a TD.  He’ll have every chance to repeat those numbers this weekend.

 

3.       Vernon Davis (vs StL) – Vernon got himself a much needed rest this past week with the ‘Niners on their bye, so he should be coming out full speed again this Sunday against the Rams.  The fantasy stud tight end put up a TD in each of his games against St. Louis last year, and though the Rams have definitely improved, I still have a hard time seeing them be able to stop Davis in Week 10.

 

4.       Brandon Pettigrew (@ Buf) – Pettigrew loves that Shaun Hill is back under center, as he averaged 6.4 catches on 9 targets while he was the starter for five games earlier this year.  Buffalo also happens to be the worst team in the league defending opposing tight ends, so don’t be surprised if Brandon has a career game this Sunday.

 

5.       Tony Gonzalez (vs Bal) – Gonzo still isn’t the fantasy force he’s been in years past, but he’s coming off a game in which he had 11 targets, eight catches and 72 yards, so he could be hitting his stride right now.  With Gates and Zach Miller on their bye weeks, it’s tough not to put the most talented tight end in history up here in the rankings.

 

6.       Marcedes Lewis (vs Hou) – Marcedes doesn’t get enough targets or catches to normally be worth this high of a ranking, but against the league’s worst pass defense, you never know.  His fantasy scoring comes in bunches, so take the chance this week on the 6’6”, 275-lb. monster.

 

7.       Chris Cooley (vs Phi) – Cooley is getting the targets (2nd among tight ends with 61), but TDs have been scarce with him all year long.  He did, however, score one of his two on the season against the Eagles earlier this year, and we all saw what Jacob Tamme did to Philly last weekend, so Cooley certainly looks worth a play this Monday night.

 

8.       Dustin Keller (@ Cle) – Cleveland is tied for the 5th worst team at defending against tight ends this year and cough up the 3rd most receptions per game to them.  Keller hasn’t been used in the Jets’ offense as much since Santonio Holmes returned, but I can see him getting a good opportunity this game against a porous Browns D.

 

9.       Joel Dreessen (@ Jax) – If Owen Daniels is still sidelined with his hamstring injury, this will be a great opportunity for Dreessen to bust onto the fantasy scene.  The Jaguars are tied for 5th worst in the league against tight ends, so with Joel accruing eight targets, five catches and 66 yards last weekend, it looks like he could be in for a big game.

 

10.   Tony Moeaki (@ Den) – The Broncos have been pretty bad against opposing TEs so far this year (ranked 25th), so the talented rookie has a chance to repeat last week’s numbers of nine targets, six catches and 63 yards.

 

11.   Aaron Hernandez (@ Pit) – Hernandez had the game of his life last weekend catching two TDs against the Browns.  He also racked up the most targets he’s had all year with nine.  However, the Steelers have only given up one TD to a tight end this year, so don’t expect a repeat performance.

 

12.   Kellen Winslow Jr. (vs Car) – One of these days Winslow is going to break out of his slump, and though he’s never been a TD-machine, you’ve gotta expect at least ONE this year.  The Panthers are the 4th worst defense in the NFL at defending TEs and have given up four touchdowns to them thus far.

 

13.   Visanthe Shiancoe (@ Chi) – The Bears give up the second most catches to tight ends per game, yet are the only team in the league not to surrender a single touchdown to them through the first half of the season.  However, Shank caught a TD in each of the Vikings games against Chicago last season, so this might be the week the Bears shutout falls.

 

14.   Heath Miller (vs NE) – Miller has been awful this year, but a sieve like the Patriots Pass D could be all that he needs to break out of it as the Pats have already surrendered four TDs to tight ends this season.

 

15.   Brent Celek (@ Was) – Brent is one of the biggest disappointments as a fantasy tight end this year, but one of his two touchdowns on the season did come against the Redskins back in Week 4, so there’s a little hope for him in this game.

 

16.   Ben Watson (vs NYJ) – The Jets don’t give up a whole hell of a lot to tight ends, but Watson will be needed in this game as a dump-off for the rookie McCoy.  Don’t expect too much here.
