C.J. Anderson

Denver Broncos

Jamaal Charles write up I did for FantasyPros.com


“Yesterday, Jamaal Charles looked more like the running back that used to dance all over the Denver Broncos defenses while he was running and catching balls for the Chiefs in seasons past. Now suited up in orange, Broncos fans must be elated to have Charles on their team after his 9 carries for 56 yards and a 12-yard touchdown game in a losing battle against the Bills. Charles is only getting 20 snaps per game for the Denver Broncos through 3 weeks with a healthy C.J. Anderson leading the way, but look for Jamaal’s snaps to increase if he keeps this production up. If C.J. was to get hurt at any point, Jamaal could venture into the backend RB2 discussion. Remember this, 3 games into his new stint as a Bronco, months after every NFL team passed on signing him and whispers that he was a washed up bum, he has more rushing yards so far than big named highly drafted running backs like LeSean McCoy (on 20 fewer carries), Marshawn Lynch, Isaiah Crowell, and Mark Ingram.” -d-Rx®

Fantasy Goo: Watch out C.J. Anderson and his fantasy owners, if Jamaal is healed, he's a remarkable running back.

Wendell Smallwood

Philadelphia Eagles

Waiver Wire Target


Smallwood had one of his best games a pro with 12 carries for 71 yards and one catch for nine yards. The Eagles are looking for more out of their running game, and after this performance Smallwood should see more consistent touches going forward.

Taylor Gabriel

Atlanta Falcons

Waiver Wire Target


Gabriel gave one of his splash games this week, catching five passes for 71 yards, including a 40-yard touchdown. If you are looking for a big play receiver in deeper leagues then Gabriel has potential, but there are going to be a lot of two catches for 22 yards as well.

Devin Funchess

Carolina Panthers

Waiver Wire Target


The Panthers do not have a lot of options at receiver, so Funchess actually becomes fantasy relevant. This week he caught four passes for 58 yards. If he can limit the drops he does have potential in a division that scores a lot of points.

Alex Collins

Baltimore Ravens

Waiver Wire Target


Collins was the best of the Ravens backs this week, gaining 82 yards on nine carries. The problem here is that we have no idea who the coaching staff really likes at running back, since they are all average. This is a situation to avoid at the moment.

Deshone Kizer

Cleveland Browns

Waiver Wire Target


The rookie had an up and down week, completing 22 of 47 passes for 242 yards with two touchdowns and three interceptions. The Browns are letting him throw, but he is also making a lot of mistakes.

Brian Hoyer

San Francisco 49ers

Waiver Wire Target


Hoyer is starting to click in Kyle Shanahan’s offense. This week he completed 23 of 37 passes for 332 yards with two touchdowns and one interception. He can be a good quarterback to stream based on matchups.

Adam Humphries

Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Waiver Wire Target


Humphries is an under the radar receiver for the Bucs, and this week he caught six passes for 68 yards. The only problem is that he is also competing with Chris Godwin for touches.

Chris Godwin

Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Waiver Wire Target


Godwin is an under the radar receiver for the Bucs, and this week he caught three passes for 44 yards. The only problem is he is also competing with Adam Humphries for touches

Brandon Coleman

New Orleans Saints

Waiver Wire Target


Coleman only had one reception for 11 yards this week, but that was a touchdown catch. On a good day he will get you 80 yards, and this was closer to a normal day in terms of yards and targets, not touchdowns.

Kenny Stills

Miami Dolphins

Waiver Wire Target


Stills is getting his shots in the offense, and this week caught four passes for 51 yards. The problem is that the Dolphins are not going to be a dynamic passing team, and Stills is going to flash but it will be tough to predict.

Ed Dickson

Carolina Panthers

Waiver Wire Target


Dickson was a complete disappointment this week with one catch for eight yards. Just because he is filling in for Olsen, he is still Ed Dickson.

Mike Tolbert

Buffalo Bills

Waiver Wire Target


The Bills do not have a legitimate #2 RB, so FB Mike Tolbert is the primary backup. This week he carried the ball 11 times for 41 yards. If McCoy were to get hurt Tolbert would be the lead back, and he has the body to be effective at the goal line.

Marqise Lee

Jacksonville Jaguars

Waiver Wire Target


Lee had an average day with four receptions for 65 yards. That is about what you can expect from Lee, as he does not have a lot of high-end upside.

Jermaine Kearse

New York Jets

Waiver Wire Target


Kearse did not do much this week with just three receptions for 42 yards. He is not going to have many 100-yard games or a lot of touchdowns. Kearse is a middle of the road player who will have a flash, but probably on your bench.

Geronimo Allison

Green Bay Packers

Waiver Wire Target


Allison had a coming out party this week with six catches for 122 yards. Just remember that he is the fourth receiver on the Packers, which usually is a good thing. Rodgers will find the open player and Allison got himself more playing time after this performance.

Ben Watson

Baltimore Ravens

Waiver Wire Target


Watson only had three receptions for 12 yards this week, but one of them was a touchdown, so his fantasy line looks better than it was. He is a redzone target and can be bye week replacement if necessary.

Robert Woods

Los Angeles Rams

Waiver Wire Target


Woods is never going to dazzle you, but he can give you some workman like efforts. This week was one of thos times, as he caught six passes for 108 yards. That will probably be his best game of the year, but he can give you a decent floor as a bye week replacement.

Travis Benjamin

Los Angeles Chargers

Waiver Wire Target


The Chargers have a lot of receivers vying for touches, but Benjamin may have the most big play ability. This week he caught five passes for 105 yards. If he continues to be targeted this much by Philip Rivers he will have a chance to make plays and is worth a roster spot in deeper leagues.

Danny Amendola

New England Patriots

Waiver Wire Target


Amendola was back, but he did not make a major impact this week with three receptions for 48 yards. He should be owned in most leagues, especially PPR leagues, as he is going to see a lot of targets when healthy.

Cooper Kupp is going to be an target machine

- All players listed are available in at least 30% of CBS Leagues -

 


TARIK COHEN – RB – BEARS – AVAILABLE IN 72% OF CBS LEAGUES

Cohen was very impressive in Week 1 for the Bears with five carries for 66 yards, and eight receptions for 47 yards with a touchdown. Tarik is the clear #2 to Jordan Howard, and also the clear 3rd down receiving back. In this offense where Mike Glennon checks downs as his first read, he is going to get plenty of opportunities. He is not a large back, so he is not going to see 20 carries in a game, but he will see 10-15 touches a game and has big play ability.

 

ALEX SMITH – QB – CHIEFS – AVAILABLE IN 66% OF CBS LEAGUES

Alex Smith had what will probably be his best game of the season in Week 1, completing 28 of 35 passes for 368 yards with four touchdowns and no interceptions. Two of those touchdowns went for over 70 yards…it was the perfect game for Smith. Alex has some big play weapons in what was once an anemic offense. Smith will be a solid performer all year, but you can’t count on getting this type of production the rest of the way…so don’t overpay expecting a windfall.

 

JARED GOFF – QB – RAMS – AVAILABLE IN 85% OF CBS LEAGUES

Goff had himself a great day throwing for 306 yards with a touchdown against the Colts. The key there is that is was against the Colts, who are a very bad defense. That said, Goff was efficient completing 21 of 29 passes and did not throw an interception. The addition of Sammy Watkins helps, but rookie Cooper Kupp really helped him in Week 1, and could be a big play for him going forward.

 

COOPER KUPP – WR – RAMS – AVAILABLE IN 64% OF CBS LEAGUES

Kupp scored his first career touchdown this week, and hauled in four passes for 76 yards. He showed his downfield ability and he will see favorable matchups with defenses focusing on Sammy Watkins. If Watkins gets hurt, which is a reality, Kupp would see an increased role, and must grab for Watkins owners.

 

DESHAUN WATSON – QB – TEXANS – AVAILABLE IN 74% OF CBS LEAGUES

Watson is in as the starter for the Texans going forward, so if you are in a deep league go ahead feel free to take a flyer on the rookie. He completed 12 of 23 passes for 102 yards with a touchdown and an interception in Week 1. There will be ups and downs for him, but he is a starting quarterback.

 

DANNY AMENDOLA – WR – PATRIOTS – AVAILABLE IN 64% OF CBS LEAGUES

Amendola suffered a concussion in Week 1, but before he left he had 100 yards on six receptions. It is clear that Tom Brady has confidence in Amendola, and when healthy he is going to be a big weapon in this Patriots offense.

 

KENNY GOLLADAY – WR – LIONS – AVAILABLE IN 66% OF CBS LEAGUES

What a debut for the rookie Golladay in Week 1 with four receptions for 69 yards with two of those going for touchdowns. Both of those scores came in the fourth quarter, the first for 10 yards and the second a 45-yard strike. This kid has a ton of potential and should become a bigger part of the Lions offense as the season progresses. This is an act now player.

 

RISHARD MATTHEWS – WR – TITANS – AVAILABLE IN 35% OF CBS LEAGUES

Matthews showed this week that even with all the weapons around him, he is still going to be a threat in the Titans offense. This week he caught five passes for 71 yards. Rishard has a nice floor and his potential for big plays makes him a nice player to have for bye weeks and flex plays.

 

CHRIS CARSON – RB – SEAHAWKS – AVAILABLE IN 79% OF CBS LEAGUES

The rookie was the best running back for Seattle in Week 1 with 39 yards on six carries and one reception for 10 yards. This backfield situation is unclear, but Carson is now a player for touches on a weekly basis and Lacy is fading after five carries for three yards.

 

ALLEN HURNS – WR – JAGUARS – AVAILABLE IN 85% OF CBS LEAGUES

Allen Robinson left this week with a knee injury and that makes Allen Hurns the #1 receiver for the Jaguars. He had three receptions for 42 yards. The Jaguars are not a good offense, but the increased targets will make him a worthy add.

 

MARLON MACK – RB – COLTS – AVAILABLE IN 59% OF CBS LEAGUES

Mack matched Gore in touches this week, and while not as effective as a runner with 24 yards on 10 carries, he did score a touchdown, and should have had another. He also added a reception for 21 yards. His value will increase when Luck returns.

 

RUSSELL SHEPARD – WR – PANTHERS – AVAILABLE IN 100% OF CBS LEAGUES

Sheppard only had two receptions for 53 yards, but one was a 40-yard touchdown. He is the deep play threat for the Panthers, so he will have some chances, but he is a hit or miss pickup.

 

CHARLES CLAY – TE – BILLS – AVAILABLE IN 75% OF CBS LEAGUES

There is nothing special about Charles Clay, but Tyrod Taylor has nobody else he feels comfortable throwing the ball to. Clay hauled in four passes for 53 yards with a score in Week 1. The four for 53 is a reasonable expectation and not much more than you will get with him, but he does have touchdown potential as well. Not a bad add in deeper leagues.

 

JARED COOK – TE – RAIDERS – AVAILABLE IN 46% OF CBS LEAGUES

Cook may have finally found a place where he can flourish. In Week 1 he caught five passes for 56 yards. With Cooper and Crabtree drawing all the coverage Cook will continue to see nice matchups and give him nice opportunities for solid fantasy production.

 

TYROD TAYLOR – QB – BILLS – AVAILABLE IN 35% OF CBS LEAGUES

Tyrod does not have a lot of weapons, but he still managed 224 yards with two touchdowns, one interception and 38 yards rushing. This was against the Jets, but this is what you can expect from Taylor. He can add to his total with his rushing, and if he develops chemistry with his receivers he could become a bigger threat as the season progresses.

 

JERMAINE KEARSE – WR – JETS – AVAILABLE IN 96% OF CBS LEAGUES

It is clear that Kearse is the first option for Josh McCown. In Week 1 Jermaine had seven receptions for 59 yards. Kearse will have his best chances for fantasy success this year, but how great is that going to be in the Jets offense…like a top end Jeremy Kerley when he was a Jet.

 

AUSTIN HOOPER – TE – FALCONS – AVAILABLE IN 40% OF CBS LEAGUES

Hooper only had two receptions this week, but they went for 128 yards, including an 88-yard score. He did not see enough targets to think he will be a weekly threat, but this big play breakout should give him more opportunities and with his big play ability he will strike again.

 

C.J. FIEDOROWICZ – TE – TEXANS – AVAILABLE IN 75% OF CBS LEAGUES

Fiedorowicz is the opposite of Hooper. He is a solid plodder that will give you every week what he gave you this week: 4-46. He will give you the occasional score, but he does not have the high-end potential of Hooper.

 

GEORGE KITTLE – TE – 49ERS – AVAILABLE IN 98% OF CBS LEAGUES

The 49ers do not have a great offense, but Kittle is going to be a check down tight end with downfield ability. He had five catches for 27 yards in Week 1, but the targets and receptions are encouraging for later this season.
