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.

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.

TE Player Rankings – Week 16

 

QB Rankings  RB Rankings  WR Rankings

 

 

Tight Ends

 


 

1.     Jason Witten (@ Ari) – Believe it or not, Jason Witten has more touchdown catches in the last three weeks than he had in all of 2006 and 2009 combined!  He and Kitna are on a serious roll right now and it doesn’t look to stop against a Cardinals defense ranking in the bottom half of the league against tight ends.

 

2.     Jacob Tamme (@ Oak) – With the Raiders being in the lower-third of the league against tight ends this season, Tamme will get his catches and targets no matter what.  There’s really no downside with this call.

 

3.     Rob Gronkowski (@ Buf) – Aaron Hernandez has been ruled out, so Big Rob could have the game of his life today.  Both tight ends did well in the last match-up (combined for nine catches, 108 yards and a TD), with Gronkowski walking away with the second TD of his career.  The Bills don’t have enough of a pass rush for the Pats to have to keep the big fella in to block, so I expect he’ll be out there hauling in passes with one of them going for another TD in this one.

 

4.     Kevin Boss (@ GB) – If anybody is going to make a splash in the passing game this week, Boss might be the most likely candidate.  The Packers are tied for fourth worst in the in defending tight ends, so with Kevin grabbing five TDs in the past seven weeks, you should be happy you grabbed him when you did.

 

5.     Vernon Davis (@ StL) – Vernon went for 79 yards on four catches the last time these two teams played, and you can bet your ass he’s pissed off about last week’s one-catch, four-yard performance.  The Rams normally do well against tight ends, but Davis won’t be denied in this one.

 

6.     Marcedes Lewis (vs Was) – Lewis is gigantic (6’6”, 275 pounds), even for a tight end, and becomes almost unguardable as one of the more fluid tight ends in the league.  The Redskins can’t cover tight ends worth a spit, so start Marcedes with confidence this weekend.

 

7.     Owen Daniels (@ Den) – Owen came back down to Earth last game, but the Broncos couldn’t defend his own mother if they tried, so have a little faith and let Daniels be a part of your Championship run this weekend.

 

8.     Chris Cooley (@ Jax) – Cooley had five catches for 62 yards and a TD with Rex as his QB last weekend.  In the 13 games prior, McNasty got him just two TDs.  With the Jags being one of the worst in the league at defending tight ends, I’d say go for it.

 

9.     Tony Gonzalez (vs NO) – The Saints sit in the middle of the pack in regards to covering tight ends.  Gonzo has had his worst statistical season since 1998 up to this point, but you can bet he’ll be ready to have himself a ball in what could turn out to be the game of the year this Monday night.

 

10.     Visanthe Shiancoe (@ Phi) – The Eagles are the worst team in the NFL at defending tight ends, so Shiancoe has a legitimate shot to produce this Sunday.  Webb got him the most catches he’s had all year last game, so at least he’s looking his way.

 

11.  Greg Olsen (vs NYJ) – The Jets have a soft spot for allowing tight ends to sneak into the endzone, so don’t be surprised if you see the one touchdown in this game end up in his hands.

 

12.  Jimmy Graham (@ Atl) – Graham has some serious skills for a tight end, and it looks like Brees is noticing it.  Last weekend he caught five passes and turned two of them into touchdowns.  With this game likely turning into a shootout, there will be plenty of stats to go around for everyone.

 

13.  Randy McMichael (@ Cin) – McMichael will likely get another start this weekend and could put up some decent numbers for you.  The Bengals are only so-so in defending tight ends this year, so unless you have a better option, go ahead and play Randy.

 

14.  Zach Miller - Oak (vs Ind) – Put this kid on a well-run team with a quarterback that isn’t out of an Archie Comic and you’ll have yourself a top-5 tight end.  Beyond that, he’s not worth you ruining your season on the hopes he’ll overcome the Raiders ineptitude.

 

15.  Ben Watson (vs SD) – Watson puts together a really nice game every once in awhile like he did last week, but he’s completely unreliable and has more of a chance of hurting your fantasy team than helping it.  The Ravens are one of the best in the league in holding down tight ends, so look elsewhere if you can.

 

16.  Kellen Winslow Jr. (vs Sea) – If there’s one thing the Seahawks are actually good at, it’s covering the opposing team’s tight end.  That’s not to say that Winslow won’t produce, but I’m not expecting more than a handful of catches for around 40-50 yards.

 

17.  Tony Moeaki (vs Ten) – The Titans allow the sixth most fantasy point to tight ends this year, so go ahead and take a chance on the promising rookie if you’re looking for a long-shot.

 

18.  Todd Heap (@ Cle) – Dickson has a great future and will eventually take over for Heap, but Todd will be back in the lineup today and has to be considered a decent play against a Browns defense that ranks near the bottom of the league in defending tight ends.

 

19.  Brent Celek (vs Min) – Celek pulled through with his second TD in the last four weeks last Sunday, but the occurrence has been far from the norm this year.  The Vikings are actually one of the better teams in the league in defending tight ends, so don’t expect too much here.

 

20.  Jermaine Gresham (vs SD) – Gresham could be Palmer’s savior this weekend with a heavy pass rush likely to be applied.  If the Chargers have a weakness, it’s in defending the tight end, so Jermaine might end up a decent play.

 

21.  Brandon Pettigrew (@ Mia) – Pettigrew has been exactly what the Lions drafted in the first round last year.  A big body who has the ability to catch and run with the ball like a giant wide receiver.  However, the last bunch of weeks have been fantasy duds.  Shaun Hill might be able to turn that around, but he also has the fourth-ranked Miami defense against tight ends working against him.

 

22.  Dustin Keller (@ Chi) – Keller hasn’t caught a touchdown pass or had a single game with more than four catches since Week 4.  With the Bears holding opposing tight ends to the fewest TD catches in the league this year, you might want to look elsewhere.

 

23.  Heath Miller (vs Car) – Miller will be back this week, but it wouldn’t surprise me to see him split time with Spaeth as they ease him back into action.

 

24.  Jeremy Shockey (@ Atl) – Shockey may be a bit of a crapshoot, but like I said with Graham, there will be plenty of fantasy numbers to be had by all in this one.  Besides, Jeremy had easily his best game of the season when these two teams first met going for 78 yards and a TD on eight catches.

 

25.  Anthony Fasano (vs Det) – It's a rare occurrence to see Fasano break out for a ton of fantasy points, but you at least know it's possible after his 107-yard performance with a TD back in Week 10.  He's had over 30 yards in each of his last three games, which is more than most of the league can say in that time.
