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.

Tight Ends                 (Updated:  Sunday, Dec. 16 - 11:06AM CT)

 

Jimmy Graham - Pyro Character

1.       Jimmy Graham (vs. TB) – Jimmy Graham has been kept out of the end zone for three straight games now, his longest stretch since Weeks 11-14 of 2010. I don’t expect there to be a fourth. This week he takes on a Tampa Bay defense that has allowed the tenth most fantasy points to tight ends this season, including a six-catch, 52-yard effort with a touchdown to Clay Harbor last weekend. If Graham doesn’t put up monster numbers in a rematch game that saw nearly 1,000 total yards put up between these two teams in their first go around, I’ll eat my dog.


Aaron Hernandez - Pyro Character

2.       Aaron Hernandez (vs. SF, Sunday night) – Aaron Hernandez has been an absolute fantasy monster these last two weeks catching 16 balls for 155 yards and two touchdowns combined. He has a tough as nails matchup this Sunday night going up against the vaunted 49ers defense, but with Rob Gronkowski looking like he’ll be out for at least another week, Hernandez should see a ton of targets yet again and put up TE1 fantasy stats with the action.


Tony Gonzalez - Pyro Character

3.       Tony Gonzalez (vs. NYG) – I think it’s fair to say at this point that Tony Gonzalez is not a normal man. Most people slow down a bit in life when they reach the 36 years old threshold—especially professional athletes—but not Tony G. All Gonzalez has done this season is catch 81 passes (sixth most in his 16-year career) for 831 yards and seven touchdowns (tied for fifth most in his career), numbers most tight ends in the league would kill to have. This week he faces New York Giants defense that has done well against tight ends this season, but in a game I expect to be relatively high scoring, there’s no way Gonzo doesn’t have a TE1 type of day.


Dennis Pitta - Pyro Character

4.       Dennis Pitta (vs. Den) –Dennis Pitta started the season out hot catching 18 balls and two touchdowns through the Ravens first three games. After a major lull between weeks four and nine, Pitta has gotten hot again nabbing three TDs in his last five games. This week might be a little strange with Baltimore firing their offensive coordinator, Cam Cameron, but I believe this will actually be a good thing for Mr. Pitta. The team’s new OC, Jim Caldwell, has vowed to go back to the no-huddle offense which is precisely the scheme that put Dennis on the map early in the first place. He also happens to be going against a Broncos squad that has allowed the most touchdowns and second most fantasy points to tight ends this season, so things are looking pretty good for the Ravens’ TE in Week 15.


Martellus Bennett - Pyro Character

5.       Martellus Bennett (at Atl) – I’m stating this one for the record right now:  As Eli Manning goes, so go his tight ends. Whether it’s something he learned from his older brother throughout the years or something he developed on his own, Eli has made his tight end an integral part of the New York Giants offense over the years and it’s shown in Martellus Bennett’s stats this season. Bennett now has touchdowns in two straight games and the third most fantasy points in the league over the last three weeks. Considering the Falcons allow the seventh most fantasy points per game this season, Martellus looks to be a prime play for your Week 15 fantasy playoff matchup.


Owen Daniels - Pyro Character

6.       Owen Daniels (vs. Ind) – Can Owen Daniels rebound from his lackluster effort last week when he put up just two catches for 24 yards against the Patriots? I believe he can, though it won’t be easy in an inner-division matchup with the Indianapolis Colts this Sunday. The Colts were one of the best at defending the tight end for most of the season, but have recently had some serious problems as they’ve allowed a touchdown to a tight end in four straight games now. Daniels may not put up a ton of yards in this one, but once the Texans establish the run game (which they will), I expect Owen to see a bunch of play-action passes come his way, including one near the goal line for a touchdown.


Vernon Davis - Pyro Character

7.       Vernon Davis (at NE, Sunday night) – I know it’s strange to see his name up here since he’s been nearly invisible in the stat column for almost a month now, but things change quickly in this crazy game we call fantasy football. The tight end position has been the most fickle of them all this season seeing anyone from Brandon Myers to Garrett Graham go off in any given week. At this point, all you can do is play the matchup game, and Vernon Davis certainly has a good one to look at here in Week 15. The New England Patriots have allowed the fourth most fantasy points to tight ends this season, with the best fantasy scores coming to tight ends on teams with a great running game. Obviously, the 49ers are included in that category, so even though it might be hard to trust Davis at this point, this might be the time to take a chance on him again.


Brandon Myers - Pyro Character

8.       Brandon Myers (vs. KC) – I would venture to say that Brandon Myers is the biggest surprise of this 2012 fantasy season. He’s at least in the top five, seeing how he only had 32 catches for 250 yards and zero touchdowns during his first three years in the league. Last week was certainly his worst fantasy performance of the season catching just one ball for a measly seven yards against the Broncos, but I don’t expect something like that to happen again this weekend. The Chiefs are in the middle of the pack in terms of fantasy points allowed this season, but they haven’t fared well lately allowing two TDs and the eighth most fantasy points to tight ends over the last three weeks.


Jermaine Gresham - Pyro Character

9.       Jermaine Gresham (at Phi, Thursday night) – Jermaine Gresham has established himself as a top ten fantasy tight end this season and though he was held to just 43 yards without a TD last week, he’s still found himself in the end zone three times in his five games. He’s also been one of the few consistent guys at his position this season and finds himself with a good matchup for fantasy owners this Thursday night. The Philadelphia Eagles have been atrocious on defense for quite awhile now and I highly doubt the trend ends here against the Bengals. I wouldn’t expect a 100-yard game because that’s not really his thing, but he should be able break 60 yards and has a good chance for a TD as well.  FINAL STATISTICS:  6 catches - 63 yards - 0 TDs


Jason Witten - Pyro Character

10.   Jason Witten (vs. Pit) – Jason Witten caught less than six passes last week for the first time since Week 3, but four catches for 62 yards isn’t really all that bad. This week will be one of his toughest tests of the season going up against a Pittsburgh defense that has allowed more than four catches to a tight end just once all season long (five to Jacob Tamme in Week 1), but I think he pulls through just fine. I have no doubt he’ll be the second player to catch five or more passes against these guys this weekend and could maybe even snag his second TD of the season, seeing how the Steelers have allowed six touchdowns to tight ends thus far (eighth most in the league).



Tight Ends 11-32


11.   Heath Miller (at Dal)


12.   Greg Olsen (at SD)


13.   Dallas Clark (at NO)

 

14.   Tony Scheffler (at Ari)

 

15.   Kyle Rudolph (at StL) 


16.   Antonio Gates (vs. Car)


17.   Jermichael Finley (at Chi)


18.   Ben Watson (vs. Was) 

 

19.   Jacob Tamme (at Bal) 

 

20.   Coby Fleener (at Hou)

 

21.   Marcedes Lewis (at Mia)

 

22.   Craig Stevens (vs. NYJ)

 

23.   Clay Harbor (vs. Cin, Thursday night) – FINAL STATISTICS:  3 catches - 30 yards - 0 TDs

 

24.   Scott Chandler (vs. Sea)


25.   Joel Dreessen (at Bal)


26.   Tony Moeaki (at Oak)


27.   Jeff Cumberland (at Ten, Monday night)


28.   Delanie Walker (at NE, Sunday night)


29.   Dwayne Allen (at Hou)


30.   Lance Kendricks (vs. Min)


31.   Zach Miller (at Buf)


32.   Kellen Davis (vs. GB)
