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.

Quarterbacks                 (Updated:  Sunday, Dec. 23 - 11:31AM CT)

 

tom brady

1.           Tom Brady (at Jax) – This is usually the time of year when Tom Brady, Bill Belichick and the rest of the New England Patriots turn up the juice in order to be in high-gear for the playoffs. However, it’s not very often when the Pats are fighting for something as important as a first-round bye at this point. To make it happen, the 10-4 Patriots not only need to win out, but also need the Peyton Manning-led Broncos to lose at least one of their final two games as well. All Brady can do is take care of own, which he most certainly will. No amount of analysis here can change the simple fact that Brady and Belichick will be out for blood after their embarrassing loss to the 49ers on national TV last Sunday night.

robert griffin III pyro character

2.           Robert Griffin III (at Phi) – If Robert Griffin ends up playing this Sunday—which I believe he will—then make sure you find a way to watch the game because you won’t want to miss your chance at witnessing a man whose sole purpose in life will be to destroy his opposition. Kirk Cousins did a spectacular job of filling in for RGIII and the Redskins last weekend, but you can tell the whole situation was sort of surreal to Griffin and that it was eating him alive as he watched. He clearly HATED not being a part of the victory and it seemed he could sense a collective questioning as to whether or not his services were truly needed for this to be a winning team. If he suits up this weekend, beating the Philadelphia Eagles to stay atop the NFC East and proving his superiority as the Redskins unquestioned starting quarterback will be goals 1a and 1b for Griffin—just not necessarily in that order.

 

cam newton pyro character

3.           Cam Newton (vs. Oak) – The only reason why Cam Newton didn’t end up with top-five fantasy stats last weekend is because Mike Tolbert deserved the two 1-yard touchdowns the Carolina coaching staff gave in the first quarter going up against his former team (San Diego Chargers). That’s it. Otherwise, Newton had another fine fantasy showing and is one of the hottest quarterbacks in the league right now. In fact, Newton hasn’t thrown an interception since Week 10 against the Broncos, a span of just over five games. The Panthers will be at home this weekend where Cam tends to feel a little more pressure, but with the lowly Raiders in town and the playoffs out of reach, I expect him to let loose and somewhat selfishly go for the best possible stats he can. In real life, I truly wish he wasn’t that type of guy—but the proof is in the pudding and let me tell ya, no silky goodness ever tasted so sweet to a fantasy owner looking for a championship.

 

aaron rodgers pyro character

4.           Aaron Rodgers (vs. Ten) – The Packers may have clinched the NFC North and a playoff spot with their win over the hapless Chicago Bears last weekend, but they still need to win their final two games to have a shot at a first-round bye. Thank goodness for Aaron Rodgers’ fantasy owners, because last season when the Pack had nothing to play for at this point, coach Mike McCarthy decided to ignore/screw millions of fantasy players out there and sat Rodgers for the final game of the season. Booooo! That won’t happen this time around. What’s even better is that Rodgers will play in the comfy confines of Lambeau Field this week against a below average Tennessee pass defense. A Jordy Nelson return would be icing on the cake, but either way, Discount Double Check will be a high-end QB1 for fantasy championship games this weekend.


matt ryan pyro character

5.           Matt Ryan (at Det, Saturday night) – The Falcons needed Matty Ice to come up big for them against the defending Super Bowl champs last weekend, and boy did he come through. In fact, it might have been Ryan’s best/most complete performance of the season as he tossed up three touchdowns and no interceptions while missing on just five passes all afternoon (23-of-28, 82.1 percent). This Saturday night he’ll be traveling up to Detroit to take on a Lions team that has completely fallen apart losing their last six games in a row. Their defense is in shambles, so Ryan should be able to pick them apart, but he has a few other things going for him as well. First, the game is in a dome so not only will it make him feel at home, it also makes Ryan one of the few quarterbacks who will be unaffected by weather this weekend. Second, Ryan is a better fantasy player away from home as he’s averaged 22.6 fantasy points on the road as opposed to 14.6 in Atlanta. Third, a Falcons win will seal a first-round bye, so with all the motivation in the world this weekend, I expect Matty Ice to come through for his owners one more time.  Final Statistics:  25-for-32 – 279 yards – 4 TDs – 0 INTs  //  2 rushes - 25 yards - 0 TDs

 

drew brees pyro character

6.           Drew Brees (at Dal) – One thing you can say about Drew Brees is that he’s definitely not a quitter. At 6-8, the Saints have only the slightest of chances to make the playoffs this season, but as long as they’re still alive, Brees will give more than his all to win a game. Not that I believe he would quit if the Saints were eliminated, but the coaching staff may choose to check out a few rookies in Week 17 if New Orleans can’t stay alive this weekend. Playoff scenarios aside, Cool Brees will not disappoint his fantasy owners this Sunday despite the Cowboys above average pass D. If Dallas gets rookie CB Morris Claiborne (concussion) back in their secondary this week, it might be a little more difficult for Brees to put up huge fantasy points, but like I said—the former Super Bowl MVP won’t go quietly and you can bet the farm he goes down throwing.

 

peyton manning pyro character

7.           Peyton Manning (vs. Cle) – Peyton Manning has definitely slowed down as a fantasy quarterback in the second half of the season and has thrown just two touchdowns in the last two games combined, but that doesn’t mean he isn’t a must-start this weekend. One reason is because of his fantasy numbers at home, which are far superior to his away numbers as he’s averaged 21.6 fantasy points at Mile High Stadium compared to just 16.5 on the road. The Cleveland Browns can be beat through the air as well, as shown by the Redskins rookie backup quarterback, Kirk Cousins, last Sunday in Cleveland. Add in the extra motivation of being able to secure a first-round bye with two more wins and there’s no doubt in my mind Peyton ends up with QB1 type numbers in Week 16.

 

tony romo pyro character

8.           Tony Romo (vs. NO) – While Tony Romo has been relatively average as a starting fantasy quarterback this season, he’s still thrown for eight 300-yard games, with his last one coming against the Pittsburgh Steelers last weekend. He’s on a bit of a roll right now putting up the third most fantasy points in the league over the last five weeks, and with WR Dez Bryant playing out of his mind lately, I doubt his roll ends here. With a miniscule hope of reaching the playoffs still alive, I expect Drew Brees to come out firing this Sunday, so if the Cowboys want to stay with the high-flying Saints and keep their own playoff hopes alive, Romo will have to pass the ball as well. He’s always been a better quarterback at home, anyway, so feel free to start him against a bottom-tier Saints pass D in Week 16.

 

andrew luck pyro character

9.           Andrew Luck (at KC) – Andrew Luck began his rookie fantasy campaign having a tough time putting up starter-worthy numbers on the road. However, after working out the kinks over the course of the season, he’s performed much better away from Indianapolis of late averaging 22.7 fantasy points in his last two road games. This week he’ll travel to Kansas City to face a Chiefs pass defense that actually allows more fantasy points to quarterbacks at home than they do on the road. Overall they allow the ninth most fantasy points to opposing QBs, so there’s no reason to think Luck won’t put up some nice numbers here. The only thing I can see getting in the way of Luck being a QB1 this weekend is if the Colts decide to take advantage of Kansas City’s bottom-tier run defense and run the ball more than usual. However, I highly doubt the Colts’ coaching staff puts the ball in Vick Ballard’s hands over Andrew Luck in a playoff-clinching game such as this.

 

colin kaepernick pyro character

10.       Colin Kaepernick (at Sea, Sunday night) – It may have come against a weak New England Patriots secondary, but Colin Kaepernick’s arrival onto the fantasy scene last weekend was truly a thing of beauty. I can talk about my expectations of him as a force in fantasy leagues for years to come, but there’s never a more important fantasy game to play than the next one on the schedule, so I’ll leave that conversation for the off-season. This week will be a major test for the youngster going up against one of the best defenses in the league and inner-division rival Seattle Seahawks, but I believe he pulls through with QB1 numbers for a couple of reasons. First, though it looks like Richard Sherman's suspension appeal will be put off yet another week, Seattle will still be without one their top two cornerbacks, Brandon Browner. Second, their two backup cornerbacks, Walter Thurmond and Marcus Trufant, were both inactive with hamstring injuries last week and are iffy to play this weekend. Third, Seattle is one of the toughest teams to run against as is, so the ‘Niners may be forced to pass the ball more anyway. Basically, Kaepernick looks good for another QB1 type of day in Week 16.



Quarterbacks 11-32

 

11.       Ben Roethlisberger (vs. Cin)


12.       Matt Schaub (vs. Min)


13.       Matthew Stafford (vs. Atl, Saturday night) – Final Statistics:  37-for-56 – 443 yards – 0 TDs – 1 INT  //  1 rush - 2 yards - 0 TDs
