C.J. Anderson

Denver Broncos

Jamaal Charles write up I did for FantasyPros.com


“Yesterday, Jamaal Charles looked more like the running back that used to dance all over the Denver Broncos defenses while he was running and catching balls for the Chiefs in seasons past. Now suited up in orange, Broncos fans must be elated to have Charles on their team after his 9 carries for 56 yards and a 12-yard touchdown game in a losing battle against the Bills. Charles is only getting 20 snaps per game for the Denver Broncos through 3 weeks with a healthy C.J. Anderson leading the way, but look for Jamaal’s snaps to increase if he keeps this production up. If C.J. was to get hurt at any point, Jamaal could venture into the backend RB2 discussion. Remember this, 3 games into his new stint as a Bronco, months after every NFL team passed on signing him and whispers that he was a washed up bum, he has more rushing yards so far than big named highly drafted running backs like LeSean McCoy (on 20 fewer carries), Marshawn Lynch, Isaiah Crowell, and Mark Ingram.” -d-Rx®

Fantasy Goo: Watch out C.J. Anderson and his fantasy owners, if Jamaal is healed, he's a remarkable running back.

Wendell Smallwood

Philadelphia Eagles

Waiver Wire Target


Smallwood had one of his best games a pro with 12 carries for 71 yards and one catch for nine yards. The Eagles are looking for more out of their running game, and after this performance Smallwood should see more consistent touches going forward.

Taylor Gabriel

Atlanta Falcons

Waiver Wire Target


Gabriel gave one of his splash games this week, catching five passes for 71 yards, including a 40-yard touchdown. If you are looking for a big play receiver in deeper leagues then Gabriel has potential, but there are going to be a lot of two catches for 22 yards as well.

Devin Funchess

Carolina Panthers

Waiver Wire Target


The Panthers do not have a lot of options at receiver, so Funchess actually becomes fantasy relevant. This week he caught four passes for 58 yards. If he can limit the drops he does have potential in a division that scores a lot of points.

Alex Collins

Baltimore Ravens

Waiver Wire Target


Collins was the best of the Ravens backs this week, gaining 82 yards on nine carries. The problem here is that we have no idea who the coaching staff really likes at running back, since they are all average. This is a situation to avoid at the moment.

Deshone Kizer

Cleveland Browns

Waiver Wire Target


The rookie had an up and down week, completing 22 of 47 passes for 242 yards with two touchdowns and three interceptions. The Browns are letting him throw, but he is also making a lot of mistakes.

Brian Hoyer

San Francisco 49ers

Waiver Wire Target


Hoyer is starting to click in Kyle Shanahan’s offense. This week he completed 23 of 37 passes for 332 yards with two touchdowns and one interception. He can be a good quarterback to stream based on matchups.

Adam Humphries

Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Waiver Wire Target


Humphries is an under the radar receiver for the Bucs, and this week he caught six passes for 68 yards. The only problem is that he is also competing with Chris Godwin for touches.

Chris Godwin

Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Waiver Wire Target


Godwin is an under the radar receiver for the Bucs, and this week he caught three passes for 44 yards. The only problem is he is also competing with Adam Humphries for touches

Brandon Coleman

New Orleans Saints

Waiver Wire Target


Coleman only had one reception for 11 yards this week, but that was a touchdown catch. On a good day he will get you 80 yards, and this was closer to a normal day in terms of yards and targets, not touchdowns.

Kenny Stills

Miami Dolphins

Waiver Wire Target


Stills is getting his shots in the offense, and this week caught four passes for 51 yards. The problem is that the Dolphins are not going to be a dynamic passing team, and Stills is going to flash but it will be tough to predict.

Ed Dickson

Carolina Panthers

Waiver Wire Target


Dickson was a complete disappointment this week with one catch for eight yards. Just because he is filling in for Olsen, he is still Ed Dickson.

Mike Tolbert

Buffalo Bills

Waiver Wire Target


The Bills do not have a legitimate #2 RB, so FB Mike Tolbert is the primary backup. This week he carried the ball 11 times for 41 yards. If McCoy were to get hurt Tolbert would be the lead back, and he has the body to be effective at the goal line.

Marqise Lee

Jacksonville Jaguars

Waiver Wire Target


Lee had an average day with four receptions for 65 yards. That is about what you can expect from Lee, as he does not have a lot of high-end upside.

Jermaine Kearse

New York Jets

Waiver Wire Target


Kearse did not do much this week with just three receptions for 42 yards. He is not going to have many 100-yard games or a lot of touchdowns. Kearse is a middle of the road player who will have a flash, but probably on your bench.

Geronimo Allison

Green Bay Packers

Waiver Wire Target


Allison had a coming out party this week with six catches for 122 yards. Just remember that he is the fourth receiver on the Packers, which usually is a good thing. Rodgers will find the open player and Allison got himself more playing time after this performance.

Ben Watson

Baltimore Ravens

Waiver Wire Target


Watson only had three receptions for 12 yards this week, but one of them was a touchdown, so his fantasy line looks better than it was. He is a redzone target and can be bye week replacement if necessary.

Robert Woods

Los Angeles Rams

Waiver Wire Target


Woods is never going to dazzle you, but he can give you some workman like efforts. This week was one of thos times, as he caught six passes for 108 yards. That will probably be his best game of the year, but he can give you a decent floor as a bye week replacement.

Travis Benjamin

Los Angeles Chargers

Waiver Wire Target


The Chargers have a lot of receivers vying for touches, but Benjamin may have the most big play ability. This week he caught five passes for 105 yards. If he continues to be targeted this much by Philip Rivers he will have a chance to make plays and is worth a roster spot in deeper leagues.

Danny Amendola

New England Patriots

Waiver Wire Target


Amendola was back, but he did not make a major impact this week with three receptions for 48 yards. He should be owned in most leagues, especially PPR leagues, as he is going to see a lot of targets when healthy.

Quarterbacks                 (Updated:  Saturday, Sept. 15 - 12:44PM CT)

 

 

 

1.           Matt Ryan (vs. Den - Monday Night) – One of the things I was super-excited to see last weekend was the Falcons new wide-open, up-tempo, no-huddle attack…and Matt Ryan showed me why. I can’t say he’ll repeat that four TD effort from Sunday (3 passing, 1 rushing) this coming Monday night as the Broncos pass D is far better than what the Chiefs tossed out there sans Brandon Flowers, but they won’t be good enough to stop Julio Jones, Roddy White and Tony Gonzalez. Ryan also loved playing at home last season tossing up over two TDs per game with a nice 8.1 yards-per-attempt.


2.           Tom Brady (vs. Ari) – Brady’s final numbers didn’t look like much last weekend with just 236 yards and two TDs, but the Patriots didn’t really need him to do more as they had the game pretty well in hand up 21-3 by halftime. I suspect the same might happen this weekend against the Cardinals, but I also expect Bill Belichick to open up the offense a little more as well so look for Brady to settle into the season with his first 300-yard game and three TDs.


3.           Andrew Luck (vs. Min) – Luck showed against the Bears that he’ll be a fantasy force to be reckoned with this season and should outperform his Week 1 numbers (309 yards, 1 TD) against Minnesota this weekend. No offense to Blaine Gabbert as he’s certainly improved this season, but if the Vikings can give up 260 yards, two TDs and no INTs to him while at home, then it’s very possible we see Luck go up over 300 yards once against and likely stack it up with 2-3 TDs as well. The Vikes DID give up the most passing TDs last season and with Austin Collie back in the lineup, I really like Luck’s potential this week.


4.           Drew Brees (@ Car) – Brees tends to do better at home than on the road, though I don’t think it will make much difference against the Panthers this weekend. Despite their loss to the Buccaneers in Week 1, Carolina is a pretty darn good team that gave Brees and the Saints a nice scare when they played in Carolina last season. That being said, I don’t think it will matter much if the game is close or a blow-out as New Orleans will give Brees every opportunity to keep his team from two straight losses to start the year.


5.           Peyton Manning (@ Atl - Monday Night) – When one of the best of all-time tries to come back from a possible career-ending injury, there are usually more questions than answers. Is he really healthy? Will he ever regain the arm-strength he once had? Is it even possible at 36-years-old? Well it looks like those questions were pretty well answered last Sunday night as Manning tossed up 253 yards and two TDs against the Steelers top-rated pass defense of 2011. His move to Denver and playing with new receivers didn’t make much of a difference but on Monday night, Manning will have to prove his worth yet again if the Donkeys want to keep up with this new Falcons offense…and I believe he will. Remember, this is Peyton Manning we’re talking about here. The same guy who finished outside the Top-5 fantasy QBs in a season just once since 2000 (sixth in 2008).


6.           Eli Manning (vs. TB) – Week 1 wasn’t quite the showing fantasy owners were looking for, but they can look forward to Eli improving his numbers against the Bucs this Sunday. Tampa did well to shut down Cam Newton and Co. last Sunday, but they won’t have the advantage of having faced Eli and his group of receivers twice last season like they did with the Panthers. I’m expecting a real nice fantasy line for the Giants QB as there’s no way he lets his team start out 0-2 at home.


7.           Cam Newton (vs. NO) – How Tampa Bay kept Newton from going absolutely nuts on them last weekend is beyond me, though he did end up with 303 yards and a TD. New Orleans won’t be able to contain Cam this weekend, though, as they just let rookie QB Robert Griffin III throw for 320 yards and two TDs along with another 42 yards rushing on them. Newton may not have fared so well against the Saints last season, but there’s nothing like a little bit of home cookin’ to make things right. 


8.           Jake Locker (@ SD) – It was a bummer to see Locker go down with that injury while trying to tackle his interceptor last weekend as he was well on his way to a 300-yard game before leaving early in the fourth quarter, but the word is that Locker is just fine and will start next weekend against a banged up San Diego pass D that gives up a lot of fantasy points to opposing QBs. With Kenny Britt back in the lineup, I’m really excited to see how Locker moves this offense as his weaponry is simply off the charts. I’ve been on his wagon for about a year now, so I’m expecting he’ll do well to prove my allegiance worthy this weekend.


9.           Tony Romo (@ Sea) – The Tony Romo we have come to expect (in the early part of the season) showed his stuff in the NFL kickoff game last Wednesday against the Giants, but that New York secondary can’t hold a candle to what the Seahawks have going on in Seattle. Still, I think the Cowboys will have to throw the ball to win this one due to the ‘Hawks strong rush defense, so look for Romo to put up a good 35-40 passes in this one. Last year Romo threw for 279 yards and two TDs against this team in Week 9, numbers he should be able to reproduce en route to a borderline QB1 fantasy day.


10.       Matthew Stafford (@ SF - Sunday Night) – I wouldn’t call Stafford’s three interceptions against the Rams last weekend “fluky” as he’s been prone to rough accuracy days like that in the past, but the ONE TD certainly WAS a fluke that won’t likely happen again. I know, we all saw what San Fran did to the Packers and Aaron Rodgers last week, but awesome defense or not, Stafford didn’t have a single game on the road last season where he either threw for less than 325 yards or fewer than two TDs, so look for the Lions QB to bounce back against a team he should probably throw 50+ passes against.


11.       Matt Schaub (@ Jax) – Schaub showed he is ready for a comeback this season after a solid, if not outstanding Week 1 performance with 266 yards and a TD.  Schaub should be in store for another solid week as he faces a Jaguars defense that allowed Christian Ponder to complete 20 of 27 passes for 270 yards. Schaub should be able to do better.


12.       Philip Rivers (vs. Ten) – Philip Rivers did not have a great game by his standards last Monday night, but he did lead his team to a victory and was able to finish the game without an interception, which was good to see. He was accurate, but also had problems in the red-zone without his two starting RBs from a year ago (Mathews and Tolbert). The hopeful return of Ryan Mathews will give the Chargers the dimension they were missing against the Raiders and should open up the passing game for Rivers and his receivers. Though the Titans held Tom Brady to just 236 yards in Week 1, Rivers should still be able to improve on his own initial performance.


13.       Ben Roethlisberger (vs. NYJ) – Normally a game against the Jets wouldn’t be a preferred start for your QB, but with Darrelle Revis already declared Out for the game with a concussion, this could be a nice showing for Big Ben. Antonio Brown should have a field day against New York’s backup CBs (Kyle Wilson and Ellis Lankster) and might even see a couple of plays against RB Joe McKnight, if you can believe it. Don’t be afraid to give Roethlisberger a whirl if your other options look a little hairy.


14.       Joe Flacco (@ Phi) – Flacco had a very impressive first game of the season throwing for 299 yards and two TDs under the big lights of Monday Night Football. Joe seemed very comfortable in the Ravens new no-huddle offense and will look to continue that trend against a tough Eagles D that gave Brandon Weeden quite a rude welcoming to the NFL last weekend. He’ll certainly have his hands full in this tough, road matchup and I’m thinking that in the end, this game will go a long way towards showing just how much Flacco has improved.


15.       Robert Griffin III (@ StL) – The kid has everything you could possibly want out of franchise QB and showed pretty much ALL of it in a Week 1 win against the Saints IN NEW ORLEANS. His arm, his awareness, his running ability and his leadership were all A+ and there’s no reason to think it doesn’t continue against the Rams this weekend. Granted, this St. Louis defense isn’t the same D that allowed offenses to do whatever they wanted on them last season, but Griff isn’t a normal talent either. Assuming Pierre Garcon makes it back for this game, bet on the rookie proving his worth yet again.
