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:  Sunday, Dec. 16 - 10:46AM CT)

 

Marshawn Lynch - Pyro Character

1.           Marshawn Lynch (at Buf) – “Fugly McSkittles” had the best game of his career last weekend rushing for 128 yards and three touchdowns against the Arizona Cardinals… and he did it on just 11 carries!!! I can’t imagine the type of numbers he would have put up if the Seahawks didn’t replace him five minutes into the third quarter with a 45-0 lead. Arizona’s rush D had actually been pretty darn good this season before that game, not like the Buffalo Bills who have been awful the whole way through. With the Seahawks still fighting for a playoff spot, Coach Pete Carroll plans to ride the beast hard over the next few weeks, so I expect another monster performance to come from him this Sunday.


Adrian Peterson - Pyro Character

2.           Adrian Peterson (at StL) – I honestly have no idea how to praise this guy any more than I already have. The guy is simply amazing. After 13 games, Adrian Peterson’s numbers continue to speak for themselves as he’s now on pace for 1,969 yards, 12 touchdowns and slightly over a 6.2 yards-per-carry average. His 18 runs of 20 yards or more (C.J. Spiller is second with 11) are astounding and if it’s even possible, he seems to be both stronger and faster now than he was at the beginning of the season. St. Louis has been pretty good against the run this year, but they’ve allowed 12 TDs on the ground to RBs this season, tied for fourth-most in the league. Peterson’s lone career game against the Rams was in St. Louis where he took two of his 14 carries into the end zone. I wouldn’t be shocked to see it happen again this time around.


Arian Foster - Pyro Character

3.           Arian Foster (vs. Ind) – Arian Foster did what he does best for his fantasy owners last Monday night, which was take one of his 19 touches into the end zone against a tough Patriots rush defense. You can’t ask for much more than at least one touchdown in 12 of 13 games this season, but I’m sure there are plenty of playoff owners out there asking for exactly that. Never fear, because I have no doubt your wishes will come true this Sunday. The Indianapolis Colts rush defense hasn’t been terrible as a whole this season, but they’ve given up a ton of touchdowns and have been awful on the road. With Texans playing at home and fighting for a first-round playoff bye, look for the coaching staff to let Arian lead the way to victory.


Doug Martin - Pyro Character

4.           Doug Martin (at NO) – After a weak performance in Denver back in Week 13, the “Muscle Hamster” got back on track last Sunday rushing for 128 yards and a touchdown while touching the ball a whopping 31 times against the Philadelphia Eagles. This week I expect another grand showing for the youngster with the Buccaneers traveling to New Orleans for a rematch with the defensively-challenged Saints. The last time they met back in Week 7, Martin was able to put up 122 total yards and touchdown en route to one of his finer fantasy outputs of the season. I’ll be very surprised if the rookie doesn’t put up nearly the same exact numbers this Sunday.


Jamaal Charles - Pyro Character

5.           Jamaal Charles (at Oak) – After last weekend’s 165-yard outburst against the Cleveland Browns, Jamaal Charles now has three straight 100-yard games, four in his last five games, and a total of six on the season. The bonus last week, however, was that Charles was able to find the end zone for the fifth time this season (four rushing, one receiving) on a delicious 80-yard, highlight speed-run on the first play of the game. This week he’ll be taking on the Oakland Raiders, a defense that has allowed the second most rushing touchdowns and second most fantasy points to running backs this season, as well as two 100-yard rushers in the last three weeks alone. He’s fun to watch as is, but you won’t want to miss the “Ostrich” this weekend.


Ray Rice - Pyro Character

6.           Ray Rice (vs. Den) – The Baltimore Ravens decided to fire it’s offensive coordinator, Cam Cameron, this week, partly due to the way he misused Ray Rice. Rice should have been seeing far more touches per game than he had been under Cameron, a mistake that will undoubtedly change from here on out under new OC, Jim Caldwell. Be that as it may, Rice was still able to put up his highest rushing total of the season last week with 121 yards and a touchdown against the Washington Redskins. This Sunday he returns home, where he plays much better, to take on the AFC West-leading Denver Broncos. The Donkeys have been one of the best teams against the rush this season, but they HAVE allowed three guys to go over 100 yards (Arian Foster, Stevan Ridley, Jamaal Charles), so obviously they can be run on for some nice fantasy points.


Trent Richardson - Pyro Character

7.           Trent Richardson (vs. Was) – Trent Richardson continues to plod along at a very slow pace putting up his ninth game of the season with less than 3.7 yards per carry last week against the Chiefs. As usual, however, he was able to save his fantasy owners for the week by crossing the goal line twice to give him 10 total touchdowns on the season. This week he’ll be at home against a better than average Redskins rush D, even though they have given up two 100-yard rushers in the last two weekends. They’re also not very good at defending running backs that excel in the passing game, so Trent should be just fine for Week 15.


Chris Johnson - Pyro Character

8.           Chris Johnson (vs. NYJ, Monday night) – CJ2K went up over 1,000 yards last week for his fifth straight campaign, though the feat didn’t come easy. I was expecting a lot more than the 44 yards on 19 carries he put up against a weak Indianapolis Colts defense in Week 14, as I’m sure did all his fantasy owners out there. He now has two straight dismal fantasy games when it counts the most, though if you’re still in the running for the trophy, this week should turn out to be better. The New York Jets, though not a sieve against the run, tend to allow a big play or two a game—something Johnson happens to excel in finding throughout a game. His RB1 status will hinge on him finding that big run or two this Monday night, but it’s definitely worth a chance.

 

Alfred Morris - Pyro Character

9.           Alfred Morris (at Cle) – Alfred Morris has put together an astounding rookie season as he currently has 1,228 yards, seven touchdowns and the tenth most fantasy points per game. He also has a string of three straight 100-yard performances right now and leads all rookies with six on the season. This week he takes on a Cleveland Browns rush defense that is getting better, though they just allowed Jamaal Charles to run for 165 yards against them last week. They’ve also been pretty porous against NFC East teams allowing a running back from each of the other squads (LeSean McCoy, Ahmad Bradshaw, Felix Jones) to put up double-digit fantasy points against them. A touchdown may be a bit hard to come by, but I expect his 100-yard game streak to increase to four in this one.


C.J. Spiller - Pyro Character

10.       C.J. Spiller (vs. Sea) – C.J. Spiller and his 6.6 yards per carry will FOR SURE have the backfield all to himself this weekend, which is something fantasy owners have been waiting for ever since the minor tease of it happening earlier in the season. This time, however, Jackson is on I.R., so there’s no chance Spiller doesn’t carry the load. The only reason I don’t have Spiller higher in the rankings is because the Seattle Seahawks have been one of the best teams against the run for most of the season. They did, however, allow five running backs in a four-game stretch recently to put up double-digit fantasy points against them, so there’s no reason to think an explosive player like C.J. won’t do the same.

 

Darren McFadden - Pyro Character

10a.   Darren McFadden (vs. KC) For all intents and purposes, Darren McFadden has been a royal disappointment to millions of fantasy owners this year. The only thing I thought could prevent him from landing in the top-5 fantasy RBs this season were his normally injury-prone ways—and as it turned out, he stayed true to form and missed four full games when he was needed the most. You can be pissed as hell at him and tell yourself you’ll never waste a draft pick on Run DNP again, but this is the fantasy playoffs, folks. All emotions need to be put aside so that we can focus on the singular task at hand—winning the whole f’in thing. As it happens, McFadden has himself a nice matchup this weekend going up against a weak Kansas City defense. The Chiefs have allowed the sixth most rushing yards per game (131.2), seventh highest yards per carry (4.6 YPC) and ninth most fantasy points to opposing running backs this season, so if you’re willing to put your anger on hold for a week, you might want to give Run DNP a chance.
