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.


10/16/17, 05:18 PM CDT by Houdini

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.

Wide Receivers                 (Updated:  Thursday, Dec. 6 - 7:04PM CT)

 

Calvin Johnson - Pyro Character

1.               Calvin Johnson (at GB, Sunday night) – It seems Calvin Johnson’s transformation back into the inhuman, space-wandering Megatron is complete. The minor malfunctions experienced through the first half of the season have long since been repaired, as his otherworldly fantasy numbers can henceforth be counted upon. Calvin is currently on pace for an NFL record 1,904 receiving yards, which would best Jerry Rice’s mark of 1,848 yards set in 1995. He would need 105.3 yards a game over the last quarter of the season to do it, but that number seems rather paltry with the way he’s been playing of late. This Sunday night, the Lions travel to Lambeau to face the NFC North-leading Packers. In 10 career games against Green Bay, Johnson has averaged 94.4 yards per game but what’s more, he’s also grabbed 11 TDs. In fact, he failed to score a touchdown in just two of those matchups, so there’s no reason to believe another prime WR1 performance won’t be coming this weekend.


Demaryius Thomas - Pyro Character

2.               Demaryius Thomas (at Oak, Thursday night) – Thomas has been a fantasy beast this season and is obviously very happy with his new quarterback, Peyton Manning. He has five 100-yard games on the season and though he hasn’t had one in the last three games, he was still able to give his fantasy owners four TD catches in that time. Over the course of the season, Demaryius has become Manning’s favorite target as he now has 69 catches for 1,114 yards and eight TDs on the year. In their first meeting with the Raiders, Thomas had five catches for 103 yards and though he failed to grab a touchdown in that game, he’s on a three-game scoring streak and should be able to extend it to a fourth this Thursday.  Thomas is a must-start this week and every week going forward as it seems he can be trusted for the remainder of the season.


Vincent Jackson - Pyro Character

3.               Vincent Jackson (vs. Phi) – I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again—if there’s one thing Vincent Jackson does really well for his fantasy owners, it’s that he takes full advantage of poor pass defenses. The Philadelphia Eagles defense, though not bad on paper, have already mailed in the season and look about as lethargic as I’ve ever seen a defense in this league. They’ve allowed six touchdowns to wide receivers in the last three weeks alone and 28 or more points in all six games since their Week 7 bye. V-Jax has already reached the 1,000-yard mark for the season on a career-high 20.3 yards per catch and could actually improve on that number with as many big plays as the Eagles have surrendered of late.


A.J. Green - Pyro Character

4.               A.J. Green (vs. Dal) – Two weeks in a row without a touchdown? Absurd! What in the world is wrong with this guy?! Well, since he still leads the league in both touchdowns and fantasy points, then I’m going to go out on a limb and say he’s fine. This week, Green will take on a Dallas Cowboys pass defense that has played very well this season, but also seem to have a bit of trouble with the taller wide receivers of the league. A.J., of course, stands 6’4”, so though he may not go off for a ton of yards, I expect him to grab at least one red-zone touchdown before the final whistle blows.


Victor Cruz - Pyro Character

5.               Victor Cruz (vs. NO) – It’s been a tale of two seasons for the Meadowlands Magician in 2012 as his hot start through the Giants first seven games was followed up by a less than stellar last five weeks. His rise back into the elite, however, starts this Sunday with the abysmal New Orleans Saints pass defense coming to town. Cruz has always played better at home, but particularly so this season with averages of 6.2 catches, 86.8 yards and one TD through the team’s first six games in New Jersey. Though the Saints defense has played better of late, they still allow the third-most fantasy points per game to wide receivers, so Cruz should be able to grab top-10 numbers this weekend. If you need a last bit of confidence here, I’ll also tell you that Victor had his best fantasy day of the season against the Saints last year when he grabbed nine balls for 157 yards and two TDs in their matchup.


Brandon Marshall - Pyro Character

6.               Brandon Marshall (at Min) – Holy crap has Brandon Marshall been on fire this season! I figured on him being dominant at times considering his long-awaited return to play with Jay Cutler, but other than A.J. Green, Marshall might be the most consistent wide receiver in all of fantasy this season. He’s recorded double-digit targets in all but three games and has nine or more catches in six of them. Two weeks ago against this same Minnesota Vikings team, Brandon tied a season-high with 12 receptions on 17 targets, though he was unable to snag one for a touchdown. If he sees even close to that many looks again this time around, he should be able to get into the end zone and put up WR1 stats for the day.


Julio Jones - Pyro Character

7.               Julio Jones (at Car) – Julio Jones’ averages on the road this season pretty much say it all. In six games away from home, Jones has a monstrous weekly output of six catches for 102.3 yards and one touchdown per game. He’s had either 100 yards and/or a TD in five of those six games and should be able to make it a sixth this Sunday against the Carolina Panthers. Last year in Carolina, Jones had 103 yards and two TDs, numbers that could very well be matched in this one as the Panthers have had a tough time covering taller wide receivers all season long.


Andre Johnson - Pyro Character

8.               Andre Johnson (at NE, Monday night) – Andre came back down to Earth against the Titans last weekend catching just five passes for 56 yards in the game. However, he wasn’t really needed for a Texans victory with the game well in hand by the middle of the second quarter. This week, however, will be a completely different story with the 11-1 Texans (6-0 on the road) traveling to Foxborough to take on a Patriots team with a six-game winning streak and the best point-differential (plus-170, Houston is second with plus-130) in the league. If the Patriots come out firing as usual, then the Texans will have to turn to the pass to stay within reach so look for ‘Dre to see a whole lot of love from Matt Schaub this Monday night. Considering the Patriots have allowed the fourth-most passing yards per game and seventh-most passing TDs this season, Johnson should be good for top-10 fantasy numbers here.


Dez Bryant - Pyro Character

9.               Dez Bryant (at Cin) – Dez Bryant is going pretty ballistic at this point as he’s now caught 29 balls for 475 yards and six touchdowns over the Cowboys last four games. Sick! He’s also catching nearly everything thrown his way, which is a major turn-around from being plagued by drops early on in his career. I’d have him up higher in my rankings this week if not for the strong play in the Bengals secondary this year. They’ve allowed the sixth-fewest fantasy points per game this season and just one WR to go for 100 yards, but I believe Dez Bryant is one of the few wideouts in the NFL right now who can buck that trend. It’ll be tough, but Bryant should be able to put up WR1 numbers by the end of this game.


Reggie Wayne - Pyro Character

10.           Reggie Wayne (vs. Ten) – Reggie Wayne has now dropped to third in the league in receptions (88) behind Wes Welker (92) and Brandon Marshall (91), but he still leads them all in targets with a whopping 152 on the season (12.7 per game). He’s also third in receiving yards with 1,156, but he’s coming off his lowest total of the season going for just 51 yards against the Lions last weekend. However, this Sunday should be a good one for the old-timer with the Titans bringing their sub-par pass defense into town. Tennessee has given up the second-most passing TDs and seventh-most passing yards per game this year, so Reggie should be just fine there. Wayne also tends to play much better at home, so combined with the way Andrew Luck has been tossing the ball out there lately, I expect to see some of Wayne’s better numbers of 2012 this Sunday.
