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.

Quarterbacks                 (Updated:  Friday, Nov. 23 - 10:39AM CT)

 

Peyton Manning - Pyro Character

1.         Peyton Manning (at KC) – The big question for Manning this week will be how he deals with the loss of his starting running back, Willis McGahee. In terms of fantasy numbers, for some QBs, it might actually boost their stats due to the offense simply having to pass more. For others, it might have a negative effect with defenses more likely to concentrate on stopping the pass. Well if last week was any indication, Manning should be just fine. In the quarter McGahee played before doing down, Manning threw for 58 yards, one TD and one INT. In the three quarters after he left, Peyton put up 222 passing yards, two touchdowns and no interceptions. At this point, there’s really no stopping him anyway as the 36-year old has put up eight straight games with either 300 yards, three TDs or both. The Chiefs defense has allowed QBs to do pretty much what they want this year, especially the good ones, so look for Manning to dominate this game through the air en route to a Broncos sixth straight win.


Aaron Rodgers - Pyro Character

2.         Aaron Rodgers (at NYG, Sunday night) – Rodgers has a few things going for him in this game. First of all, there’s the revenge factor after New York derailed the Packers hopes of winning a second straight Super Bowl by knocking them out in the Divisional Playoff game last season. Second, Rodgers LOVES to play these Giants. In his two regular season games against them, Aaron averaged 386.5 yards and FOUR touchdowns while also rushing for an average of 29 yards per game. Pretty ridiculous numbers if you ask me. New York’s defense doesn’t look like they’ll be able to stop him this time around either, as they’ve allowed the seventh-most fantasy points per game to opposing QBs this season. Without a running game to speak of, Rodgers will have to do most of the work this Sunday night if Green Bay wants to gain a sixth-straight win.


Matt Ryan - Pyro Character

3.         Matt Ryan (at TB) – Though he ended up throwing for over 300 yards, Matt Ryan just had his worst fantasy performance since the opening weekend of the 2010 season. Not that they were all entirely his fault, but throwing five interceptions and zero touchdowns in a single game is pretty unheard of. In fact, it’s only happened 62 times since 1960 and only ONE other time did the quarterback’s team actually win the game like the Falcons did (Bart Starr and the Packers beat the Bears 13-10 in 1967). However, fantasy owners should have a very short memory on that one as I fully expect Matty Ice to turn it around this week against the Buccaneers. His career numbers against Tampa Bay aren’t the greatest, but the Bucs pass defense hasn’t been as bad as they are now, either. They currently allow the fourth-most fantasy points per game to QBs and in the last five weeks, three of them have thrown for 335-plus yards and three or more TDs against them. Ryan should be able to join that crowd this Sunday.


Tom Brady - Pyro Character

4.         Tom Brady (at NYJ, Thanksgiving night) – Brady is on another one of those accuracy tears right now as he hasn’t thrown an interception in his last 162 attempts going back to the fourth quarter of Week 6. Back in Week 7 in the Patriots 29-26 home win over the Jets, Brady attempted his second-most passes of the season (42) yet was only able to put up 259 yards and two touchdowns. As it happens, the man who caught both those touchdowns, TE Rob Gronkowski, will be out for this game so the Stetson Man will have to find someone else to get his owners some nice fantasy points this Thursday. Brady has always enjoyed a nice challenge, however, so I expect him to pull through with QB1 numbers this Thanksgiving.  FINAL STATISTICS:  18-for-28 – 323 yards – 3 TDs – 0 INTs  //  3 rushes - 5 yards - 1 TD 


Tony Romo - Pyro Character

5.         Tony Romo (vs. Was, Thanksgiving afternoon) – As I’ve said for ages now, Tony Romo is NOT an elite quarterback, whether it be real life or otherwise. However, he is very very good at home and has the (fantasy) numbers to back it up. In the 41 games he’s played from start to finish since he became a starter for the Cowboys in the middle of 2006, Romo has had 19 300-yard games and 27 games where he’s thrown for at least two touchdown passes. I know we’re all used to fantasy studs like Aaron Rodgers, Drew Brees and Tom Brady, but the numbers you just read are actually pretty rare otherwise and need to be considered when you’re talking about your starting fantasy QB down the stretch. His record on Thursday’s is 6-1 and could easily be considered his favorite day of the week to play. In fact, in seven career Thursday games (which are mostly on Thanksgiving), Romo has thrown for 18 touchdowns (2.6 TDs per game) and just five INTs, so if you were ever going to think about starting this guy, Turkey Day might be the best time for you to do it. He’s a QB1 this week for sure this week, especially against a Redskins pass D that allows the sixth-most fantasy points per game to quarterbacks this year.  FINAL STATISTICS:  37-for-62 – 441 yards – 3 TDs – 2 INTs  //  3 rushes - 7 yards - 0 TDs


Andy Dalton - Pyro Character

6.         Andy Dalton (vs. Oak) – Dalton started the season throwing up at least one interception in his first eight games. In his last two games, however, the Cincinnati youngster hasn’t thrown a single pick while he’s quietly put up six TDs in back-to-back Bengals victories. It may be a bit hard to believe, but Dalton actually ranks eighth for quarterbacks in fantasy points per game right now and could jump up a notch or two against the lowly Raiders defense this Sunday. Each of the last three QBs to face the Raiders (Freeman, Flacco and Brees) put up over 20 fantasy points against them, so it stands to reason that Dalton will do the same with the roll he’s currently on.


Robert Griffin III - Pyro Character

7.         Robert Griffin III (at Dal, Thanksgiving afternoon) – Though he may have looked a little prettier in previous weeks, RGIII is coming off his best game as a professional. He only threw for 200 yards, but he also tossed up four TD passes of six, 17, 49 and 61 yards while completing 14 of his 15 pass attempts in the game. The bonus that usually comes with Griffin is that he also ran for 84 yards and as has become the norm for the youngster, he did not throw an interception either. RGIII has been having a very nice rookie campaign, even though it seemed he was slowing down before his latest lights-out performance last week. From a fantasy owner's standpoint, it's nice to see Griff avoid the type of big hits he endured earlier in the season as well. Griffin will be facing the fifth-best defense against quarterbacks in Dallas who are yielding a meager 14.3 fantasy points to quarterbacks this season. DeMarcus Ware is going to be a factor that may limit the amount of running opportunities Robert will have in this game, so I wouldn't expect another big rushing day like he had last weekend. That being said, the Cowboys seem to be in disarray this season, and if they fall apart on Thanksgiving at the hands of RGIII, Jerry Jones just might have to fire himself.  FINAL STATISTICS:  20-for-28 – 311 yards – 4 TDs – 1 INT  //  6 rushes - 29 yards - 0 TDs


Andrew Luck - Pyro Character

8.         Andrew Luck (vs. Buf) – Though it certainly wasn’t his greatest performance of the year, Andrew Luck set a record against the New England Patriots last weekend by being the first rookie quarterback in history to throw for five 300-yard games during his inaugural season (Peyton Manning and Warren Moon each had four; RGIII currently has three). Just to show how dominant he’s been fantasy-wise, Luck is also just the seventh rookie QB since the NFL-AFL merger to rush for five or more TDs in a season as well. He currently ranks seventh for quarterbacks in fantasy points per game and should do well to keep that spot against a Buffalo defense that ranks eighth in the league in QB fantasy points allowed.


Drew Brees - Pyro Character

9.         Drew Brees (vs. SF) – This is by far the lowest I’ve ranked Drew Brees in quite awhile, especially with him playing at home. However, I do believe it’s warranted for a couple of reasons. First off, Brees is on a bit of a cold streak right now as he hasn’t thrown for 300 yards in four straight games averaging just 242.3 YPG during that span. He’s kept a decent fantasy pace, though, with 2.5 TDs per game so not everything has gone against him, but he hasn’t played a defense as good as the 49ers either. San Francisco has allowed the second-fewest passing touchdowns, passing yards and fantasy points per game to QBs this season, so whatever Brees does this Sunday, it won’t be easy. Because he’s Cool Brees, he deserves a spot in the top-10, but don’t expect the world in this one.


Matthew Stafford - Pyro Character

10.       Matthew Stafford (vs. Hou, Thanksgiving day) – Stafford has been very disappointing this season with only two multiple-TD games and has a horrible ratio of 12 TDs to 10 INTs. These are not the numbers owners were expecting of him when he was consistently going in the first round of fantasy drafts. Stafford has plenty of weapons to throw the ball to on offense, but he needs to be more precise with his passes of more than 20 yards as he flat out missed Calvin Johnson on two sure-fire TD grabs against the Packers last week. Stafford has a tough match-up to start the Thanksgiving festivities. The Texans had been a stingy defense all season, but then allowed also-ran Chad Henne to come in and scorch them for four TDs at home last week. Strange, eh? Stafford will be a bit behind the eight-ball here as he'll be working without WR Titus Young, who was suspended by the team for conduct detrimental to the team. That being said, Stafford should have to throw in this game and throw the ball a lot, so the potential is there for some real nice numbers. The only question is, can he actually throw more than one TD?  FINAL STATISTICS:  31-for-61 – 441 yards – 2 TDs – 0 INTs  //  2 rushes - 7 yards - 0 TDs



Quarterbacks 11-32


11.       Colin Kaepernick (at NO)

13.       Josh Freeman (vs. Atl)


14.       Carson Palmer (at Cin)

17.       Joe Flacco (at SD)


18.       Philip Rivers (vs. Bal)


19.       Mark Sanchez (vs. NE, Thanksgiving night) – FINAL STATISTICS:  26-for-36 – 301 yards – 1 TD – 1 INT  //  2 rushes - 2 yards - 0 TDs
