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.

Running Backs                 (Updated:  Thursday, Dec. 6 - 3:01PM CT)

 

Adrian Peterson - Pyro Character

1.         Adrian Peterson (vs. Chi) – Adrian Peterson’s numbers speak for themselves as he’s now on pace for 1,928 yards, 11 touchdowns and a 6.2 yards-per-carry average. His big-play ability is obviously still there as well as he currently leads the league with 17 runs of 20 yards or more (C.J. Spiller is second with 11). Throw in the fact that he’s averaged 103.4 yards and 1.3 touchdowns a game against the Chicago Bears over his career and you’re pretty much assured of a big day out of Purple Jesus this weekend. Oh, and did I mention that the Bears will be without MLB Brian Urlacher for this game (and possibly longer) as well?


Doug Martin - Pyro Character

2.         Doug Martin (vs. Phi) – The “Muscle Hamster” has been slowed of late rushing for just 106 yards on 2.7 yards-per-carry over his last two games, but if there’s a team you’d like to face when things aren’t going too well at this point, it’s the Philadelphia Eagles. Granted, the Eagles have allowed more through the air than on the ground during their recent downward spiral, but Martin is involved enough in the passing game to make a difference there as well, so I’m not too worried about that. I’ll be very surprised if the rookie doesn’t put up 125-plus total yards and at least one touchdown this Sunday.


Bryce Brown - Pyro Character

3.         Bryce Brown (at TB) – What a maniac this kid is! With LeSean McCoy out of the lineup for the last two weeks, Bryce Brown has run for 347 yards and four touchdowns on just 43 carries, which comes out to a whopping 8.1 YPC. The rookie is really something special to watch as he not only has a ton of power in his legs, but also more speed than you’d think for a 223-pound back. He runs with a rare ferocity that can sometimes get him into trouble considering his three fumbles in the last two games, but Andy Reid wouldn’t dare tell him to slow down at this point. The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have been pretty good against the run this season, but Brown is on too much of a roll right now to think he’ll do anything but put up RB1 numbers.

 

Trent Richardson - Pyro Character

4.         Trent Richardson (vs. KC) – So Richardson was held to less than four yards a carry again last week against the lowly Oakland Raiders, but as usual, he found a way to put up nice fantasy numbers on the day running in a late three-yard touchdown. It was the first time he failed to put up 100 total yards in a game since back in Week 7, but he’ll get it going again this Sunday against a mediocre Kansas City Chiefs defense. I’m a bit nervous about the dreaded “rookie wall” coming up to meet him sometime soon, but it won’t be this week.

 

Marshawn Lynch - Pyro Character

5.         Marshawn Lynch (vs. Ari) – “Fugly McSkittles” came through with an unexpected nice fantasy game for his owners against a top-tier Chicago Bears defense this past weekend. Actually, it’s really not all that surprising seeing how he’s been able to come through on a regular basis regardless of the opponent for almost two years now. This week he’ll be facing an Arizona Cardinals team that he’s seen three times since the beginning of last year, though he hasn’t seen much success against them. In fact, he didn’t score a touchdown or run for more than 86 yards against them in any of those games, but streaks are meant to be broken. If Shonn Greene can run for 100 yards against them last weekend, I expect Lynch to as well.

 

Ray Rice - Pyro Character

6.         Ray Rice (at Was) – Ray Rice may still be fourth in the league in fantasy points this season, but it sure isn’t because the Ravens are getting him the ball a bunch. Last week he only saw 13 touches in a last-second loss to the hated Pittsburgh Steelers, a mistake I doubt the coaching staff will make again anytime soon. Plain and simple—Ray Rice makes his offense run. This week he’ll be taking on a Redskins defense that’s better than you think against the run, but have still allowed a running back to put up double-digit fantasy points against them in seven of their last eight games. If Rice wasn’t so wishy-washy on the road, I’d have him ranked higher.

 

Arian Foster - Pyro Character

7.         Arian Foster (at NE, Monday night) – Arian Foster still leads the league in fantasy points right now due to his insane ability to get into the end zone, but for the third time in four weeks last Sunday, he was held to less than 3.5 yards per carry, so he’s obviously slowing down a bit. The Texans have already clinched a spot in the playoffs so they might be aiming to rest him a bit, though he hasn’t seen less than 18 touches in a game yet this season and I doubt Houston will want to show poorly on Monday night. The Patriots, however, have a pretty stout rush D, so I don’t expect him to have one of his top-of-the-line games here. Lastly, Houston could turn to the pass if they get behind, so Arian may not receive as many carries as he usually does.

 

 

Chris Johnson - Pyro Character

8.         Chris Johnson (at Ind) – CJ2K hasn’t been able to hit the 100-yard mark the last couple of games and was held to his lowest rushing total (51 yards) since Week 5 by the Texans last weekend. That being said, I believe his minor skid takes a turn for the better this Sunday playing in a dome against the Indianapolis Colts. Indy has allowed the sixth-most rushing touchdowns this season and the eighth-most fantasy points to opposing RBs, so Johnson should have a real good chance at RB1 numbers here.


Jamaal Charles - Pyro Character

9.         Jamaal Charles (at Cle) – As has been the case throughout his career, Jamaal Charles is still having a bit of trouble finding the end zone. However, he also just ran for his fifth 100-yard game last weekend and third in his last four games, so the kid is obviously on a bit of a roll. Not that it makes much of a difference, but Charles is averaging 109 yards a game against the AFC North this season with just the Cleveland Browns left to play. The Browns are probably the worst of the four teams (Baltimore, Cincinnati, Pittsburgh), but have been pretty stout on the defensive side of the ball lately. They’ve had a bit of trouble with the speedier running backs, though, so I expect Jamaal to have a couple of big runs and a RB1 type of day because of them.


Alfred Morris - Pyro Character

10.       Alfred Morris (vs. Bal) – Alfred Morris is a beast and continues to show it on a weekly basis. On Monday night, he was able to put up his fifth 100-yard game of the season, the most of any rookie RB in the league this year. This weekend he’ll be at home against a Baltimore Ravens defense that has been able to be beaten on the ground this season. They’ve actually done a lot better lately, but their best defensive player, Terrell Suggs, just went down to injury so they might not play up to their recent standards this Sunday.

 


Running Backs 11-50

 

11.       Ahmad Bradshaw (vs. NO)


12.       Matt Forte (at Min)


13.       BenJarvus Green-Ellis (vs. Dal)


14.       C.J. Spiller (vs. StL)


15.       Steven Jackson (at Buf)


16.       DeMarco Murray (at Cin)


17.       Frank Gore (vs. Mia)


18.       Stevan Ridley (vs. Hou, Monday night) 


19.       Knowshon Moreno (at Oak, Thursday night)
