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.

Running Backs                 (Updated:  Friday, Nov. 23 - 1:48PM CT)

 

Frank Gore - Pyro Character

1.         Frank Gore (at NO) – Living up to his nickname, Frank the Tank has been awesome in his final season before he turns 30 years old. Normally you would expect him to slow down right about now, but the ‘Niners have kept his playing time in check enough this season so he should have enough left in his legs to finish the year off strong. This week he’ll be visiting New Orleans to take on a Saints defense that allows the second-most fantasy points per game to running backs. Though QB Colin Kaepernick showed strong in his first start last weekend, I expect San Fran to try and control this game on the ground in order to keep the ball out of Drew Brees’ hands. If that happens, then Gore will be looking at 20 to 25 touches and will inflict some serious fantasy damage this Sunday.


Arian Foster - Pyro Character

2.         Arian Foster (at Det, Thanksgiving day) – Foster has been held without a rushing TD in each of the past two weeks, though he did have a receiving TD in Week 10 against the Bears. In fact, Foster has had a real tough go of it over the past three games, putting up a mere 3.6 yards per rush average and long run of 21 yards, though he did manage to have two 100-yard rushing games in the process. This has really been the story pretty much all year for Arian, as he is averaging only 3.8 yards per carry on the season, though he still ranks second in the league in fantasy points per game. Foster is still an all-around dominant player being both the Texans goal-line back and a viable option in the passing game. I expect Houston to establish their bell-cow early in the game in order to open up their league-best play-action offense and in doing so; Foster should accumulate a good 25 to 30 touches by the final whistle. With a national audience watching this early Thanksgiving game, Foster will undoubtedly be looking to bust a long one, something he's had trouble doing pretty much all season.  FINAL STATISTICS:  20 rushes - 102 yards - 2 TDs  //  5 catches - 15 yards - 0 TDs


Doug Martin - Pyro Character

3.         Doug Martin (vs. Atl) – Most people had a pretty good idea that the rookie out of Boise State would be a pretty good running back this season. However, players tend to struggle a bit in their first NFL season, so I’m sure his projected numbers were tapered back a bit. Basically, my guess is that NOBODY predicted the Muscle Hamster to have 1,000 yards rushing in his first 10 games, much less that he would be ranked second in the league in fantasy points per game. Martin is on a serious tear right now putting up three 100-yard games and seven total touchdowns in the last five weeks, a streak that should continue this Sunday against Atlanta’s mediocre rush D. The Falcons have allowed a running back to put up double-digit fantasy points in seven straight games now, a streak which includes lesser RBs like DeAngelo Williams, Felix Jones, Chris Ivory and LaRod Stephens-Howling. Not only will Martin make it eight straight games for Atlanta, but will outperform every single RB included in the streak (LSH - 19.3 fantasy points).


Chris Johnson - Pyro Character

4.         Chris Johnson (at Jax) – Even though he’s been consistent since Week 4 and averaging one touchdown and 140.3 rushing yards over the last four weeks, I still have my reservations about CJ2K. That’s how much his putrid 2011 season and first few weeks of 2012 have influenced the overall fantasy world. That being said, I must be getting over it now or else I wouldn’t have him up here in my top-5 RBs for the week. Jacksonville has one of those strange defenses that are hard to figure out as they’ve shut down the best in the game (Arian Foster in Week 11), but also allowed career fantasy days to players like Ben Tate and Mikel Leshoure this season. However, one consistency I noticed is that they’ve had a tough time stopping good cut-back runners with a lot of speed, so I have to believe that Johnson at least has a shot at a big game here. It may be slow for him in patches, but fantasy owners will love the couple of big runs that should come his way during the course of the game.


Marshawn Lynch - Pyro Character

5.         Marshawn Lynch (at Mia) – Marshawn Lynch—or as I like to call him, Fugly McSkittles—has once again proven to be fantasy immune to good run defenses this season as he now has four straight 100-yard games with three of them coming against rush Ds in the better half of the league. He’s also started to come on in the TD category putting together a three-game scoring streak after a slow start to the season. Coming out of his bye this week, Beast Mode should be well rested and ready to take on yet another top-tier run defense in Miami. The Dolphins have been falling off a bit of late, though, as they’ve allowed a running back to score at least 9.8 fantasy points in five straight weeks now. With all these things in mind, I have no doubt Lynch will have another studly workhorse day for fantasy owners this weekend.


Adrian Peterson - Pyro Character

6.         Adrian Peterson (at Chi) – Even though at this moment he’s played one less game than him, Adrian Peterson still leads Arian Foster by 77 yards for the 2012 rushing title. With 1,128 yards through 10 games, Peterson is on pace for a career-high 1,805 yards on another career-best 5.8 yards per carry. All this less than a year removed from tearing his ACL, MCL and both meniscuses?!?! Out of control, folks. Simply out of control. What’s even crazier was to read the story about how Dr. James Andrews claimed that Peterson’s knee had as much wear and tear as a "newborn baby" when he operated on it last December. The nickname “Purple Jesus” is getting to be more and more appropriate as time wears on. This week Peterson will take on a Bears team he’s had a lot of success against in the past, though not necessarily in the last couple of seasons. That being said, though they’re still ranked near the top of the league, the flaws of the Chicago rush D have definitely been exposed as they’ve given up a ton of fantasy points on the ground the last few weeks. Look for Peterson’s epic, storybook season to continue this Sunday.


Ray Rice - Pyro Character

7.         Ray Rice (at SD) – Though he still ranks fourth in fantasy points per game, Ray Rice hasn’t quite had the type of fantasy season owners were hoping for this year. His seven rushing touchdowns have been nice, but his yardage has been on the downside for a while now as he’s failed to reach the 100-yard mark since Week 5 and only has two on the season after posting six in 2011. This week he goes on the road to take on a pretty darn good rush D in San Diego. With Rice’s career numbers being far superior at home, he could have a bit of trouble putting up big points in this game, but should be fine. He put up double-digit fantasy points last season when he visited the Chargers and there’s no reason to think he won’t do the same again this year.


C.J. Spiller - Pyro Character

8.         C.J. Spiller (at Ind) – Even though his fellow backfield mate, Fred Jackson, will be returning to action this week, coach Chan Gailey has already stated that Spiller will not only start, but also receive the majority of the snaps throughout the game. Maybe Gailey finally took a look at the fantasy stats for the year and realized that C.J. is not only averaging the sixth-most fantasy points per game, but also the most yards per carry in the entire league. Either way, Spiller is finally getting his due—and not a moment too soon with the Bills taking on a Colts defense that has allowed the second-most touchdowns to running backs and the eighth-most fantasy points per game. If Spill can somehow get 20 or more touches in this one, then this ranking will end up far too low.


Stevan Ridley - Pyro Character

9.         Stevan Ridley (at NYJ, Thanksgiving night) – Ridley has rushed for a touchdown in three straight games now and is tied for second in the league with seven on the year. His rushing yards, attempts and fantasy points per game are all up there in the top-10 as well, though his fantasy output each week has been a bit scattered throughout the season. Back when he faced the Jets in Week 7, Ridley had just 65 yards on 17 carries and no touchdowns, numbers which would add up to his third-lowest fantasy score in 2012. However, there are a couple of bright spots for Ridley owners to look at here. First off, the Jets have allowed the sixth-most fantasy points to opposing RBs this season. Second, the Jets defense has allowed seven different running backs to put up double-digit fantasy points against them but most importantly, five of those came with the Jets playing at home. Lastly, three of Stevan’s four 100-yard games and four of his seven rushing TDs have come on the road. I expect him to be right on the edge of RB1 status by the end of the weekend.  FINAL STATISTICS:  21 rushes - 97 yards - 1 TD  //  0 catches - 0 yards - 0 TDs


marcel reece pyro character

10.       Marcel Reece (at Cin) – Marcel Reece has been kind of a beast the last three weeks putting up the third-most fantasy points in non-PPR and second-most in PPR leagues. Though he did have a 100-yard game against the Saints last week, he’s not normally much of a runner as his area of expertise lies more in the passing game than on the ground. However, I don’t think it will matter much this week as the Bengals have allowed the third-most receptions to running backs this season and the ninth-most fantasy points per game. Reece will be heavily involved in the offensive game-plan once again this weekend and should be able to turn out some pretty nifty fantasy numbers with the work.
