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.

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.

QB Player Rankings – Week 2

 

 

RB Rankings  WR Rankings  TE Rankings

 

Quarterbacks

 

 

1.           Michael Vick (@ Atl) – A decade after being taken with the first pick of the draft, Michael Vick is finally going home.  No, not the big house, but the house he grew up in; the Georgia Dome.  Actually, he was there once already back in 2009, but it was in limited fashion playing behind Donovan McNabb in an Eagles 34-7 victorythis time Vick will get to work his magic from the first whistle on.  As it was last week in St. Louis, it’s almost unfair for a guy with Vick’s skills to be allowed to play in such a stadium.  Against a Falcons defense that just lost their best DT in Jonathan Babineaux after giving up 312 yards and two TDs to Jay Cutler, look for Vick to go a little nutty in his Atlanta reunion.

 

2.           Aaron Rodgers (@ Car) – Simply put, Aaron Rodgers and that Packers offense is unstoppable.  The season opener on Thursday night last week against New Orleans was an instant classic, though something tells me Rodgers has more to show.  With Carolina letting up 309 yards and two TDs to Arizona’s new QB, Kevin Kolb, you can bet one of the best gunslingers in the game will have himself another ass-whooping day.

 

3.           Philip Rivers (@ NE) – Vincent Jackson was somehow kept in check last weekend against the Vikings, but that won’t happen again.  Considering he and Brandon Marshall have pretty much the same body type and that New England couldn’t cover Marshall for squat, I’d expect the same out of V-Jax on Sunday.  San Diego has an awesome pass D, but with as good as Tom Brady is, this could turn into a shootout.  If so, Rivers is gonna explode.  I’m not sure much else needed to be said other than that Chad Henne threw for 416 yards against them, but there you go. 

 

4.           Matthew Stafford (vs KC) – Stafford is the next big thing; period.  Well, that is, if he stays healthy.  That said, Kansas City let weak-armed Ryan Fitzpatrick throw all over them in Week One, so why should it be any different for one of the strongest arms in the game in Week Two?  It shouldn’t, and it won’t be.  Add in the fact that All Pro DB Eric Berry just went down for the season and you’re probably looking at another 300-yard, multi-TD game for the young Lions QB.

 

5.           Tony Romo (@ SF) – Fourth quarter of Week One aside, I still believe Tony Romo will have his finest year in 2011.  San Francisco has a super-tough rush D, but their pass defense leaves a little something to be desired.  I mean, if the possibly the worst starting QB in the NFL (Tarvaris Jackson) can throw for 197 yards and two touchdowns against you without his best receiver (Sidney Rice), what makes you think you can stop a top-ten QB, Miles Austin, Dez Bryant, and Jason Witten?  You can’t is the answer.

 

6.           Tom Brady (vs SD) – Now you might think I’m crazy for ranking Brady all the way down here at No. 6 after the show he just put on Monday night, but let me explain.  First, Monday night was a once-in-a-lifetime type of gamesomething we might not see again for quite awhile.  Second, the Chargers pass D is really nasty.  They ranked first in the league in 2010 and then came out and just obliterated the Vikings passing game last weekend by holding Donovan McNabb to a mere 39 yards through the air.  Brady is one of the best, and the Patriots could come out the victors in this one, but don’t expect a fantasy onslaught from the Stetson Man.

 

7.           Ben Roethlisberger (vs Sea) – The Pittsburgh Steelers and specifically Ben Roethlisberger have seen enough of the Baltimore Ravens for quite awhile, don’t you think?  Luckily, the Seattle Seahawks come to town to turn their season around, so don’t get too down on the big guy just yet.  This Pittsburgh offense is as athletic as it gets and I expect every last one of them to have themselves a nice fantasy day… which of course means Big Ben is up for some tasty fantasy numbers.

 

8.           Drew Brees (vs Chi) – It’s tough to put a guy with Drew Brees’ pedigree this low in the rankings, especially since he went off for 419 yards and three TDs last weekend, but I am.  I know it’s been proposed that you can basically plug any wide receiver into the Saints system and the offense will be just fine, but Marques Colston being out and Lance Moore still a bit hobbled can’t be a good thing.  The Bears pass D is pretty stingy and showed they can hold down a good QB and high-octane offense over four quarters last weekend against Atlanta.  Of course, Brees is home in the dome where he’s averaged 2.5 touchdowns and 311 yards per game over the last three seasons, so…

 

9.           Joe Flacco (@ Ten) – Flacco IS what the Ravens thought he would be; a golden-armed stud.  Against one of the toughest defenses in the league last week, Flacco had already carved up the Steelers secondary for 180 yards and three touchdowns by the time half the fans were back in their seats from halftime.  Joey and the Ravens would cruise to a victory after opening up a 29-7 lead, but you had the feeling Flacco could have done it to them all day.  Next up is Tennessee, and if the Titans couldn’t hold Luke McCown to worse than a 91.5 QB Rating last week, how do you think this one will end up?

 

10.       Rex Grossman (vs Ari) – Grossman’s a funny guy.  You never know whether to expect one of the worst games you’ve ever seen, or one of the better ones of the season.  He pretty much does the opposite of whatever you expect and then once you think you’ve got him pegged, he pulls a 180 on you and loses your ass again.  One of these days we’ll get him, and it could very well be this week against an Arizona defense that just gave up a rookie QB record to Cam Newton by allowing him to pass for 422 yards through the air.  Would it shock you if I told you Rex has actually done better than that?  Well he has… back in 2001 playing for Florida against LSU.

 

11.       Ryan Fitzpatrick (vs Oak) – Is this guy the real deal or what?  Drafted in the seventh round out of Harvard back in 2005, Ryan hadn’t amounted to much until last season when he racked up 3,000 yards and 23 TDs in just 13 games.  Huh?  Then this year he puts up a TD four-spot on the Chiefs with 208 yards and zero INTs.  He’s kind of an up-and-down type of fantasy player, but he should be able to do some damage against this Raiders D. 

 

12.       Matt Schaub (@ Mia) – Miami’s defense isn’t nearly as bad as the Patriots made them out to be last Monday night and in fact, they’re actually pretty darn good.  Whatever the case, Schaub and this high-octane Houston offense should still be able to put up some nice numbers on their own—just not Brady-nice.

 

13.       Chad Henne (vs Hou) – Maybe all Chad Henne needed to show he can play at this level was for the Dolphins to commit to not having a running game…  Reggie Bush is electric out of the backfield, which is great for Henne, but he still can’t run in between the tackle and never will.  Until Miami finds someone who can, this offense will be based on the pass, which alone will boost the fantasy stock of most any NFL quarterback (minus all Arizona QBs from 2010).  Last week won’t be repeated, but it won’t be for lack of trying.

 

14.       Mark Sanchez (vs Jax) – Sanchez tied a career-high against the Cowboys on Sunday night attempting 44 passes while completing a career second-best 26 of them.  His 335 yards were also one shy of his career mark, but I wouldn’t expect these numbers against the Jaguars this week.  He’ll get his share of fantasy points to be sure, like somewhere in the range of 225-250 yards and 1-2 TDs, but once the Jets are in control of this one (which could be pretty quick), they’ll use Greene and Tomlinson to run out the clock.

 

15.       Josh Freeman (@ Min) – Admittedly, I’m not very high on Freeman this year, but I still don’t think he deserves to be higher than No. 14 this week.  Coach Raheem Morris has already come out to say he plans on using RB LeGarrette Blount much more in the coming weeks and though it could just be a smokescreen, I don’t think it is.  In what is sure to be a rip-roaring, rockin hostile environment like the Metrodome on Sunday (it will be the Vikings first game back there since the roof collapse of 12/12/10), I’m not sure Freeman has the type of day fantasy break-out fans will be hoping for.

 

16.       Kevin Kolb (@ Was) – What I like the most about Kolb as a fantasy player this year is not his own personal ability as a QB, but rather the lack of ability shown on the Cardinals defensive side of the ball.  Giving up a rookie record 422 yards passing to Cam Newton last week was really kind of humorous to watch, and I have a feeling this comedy show of defensive ineptitude has a year-long encore to follow.  If that is the case, Arizona will be passing the ball quite a bit in the efforts to get back into games… which is of course nice for Kolb and the rest of his fantasy receivers.

 

17.       Kyle Orton (vs Cin) – For as hard as he was crushed by the fans at Mile High Stadium on Monday night, Orton did, in fact, throw for over 300 yards and a TD.  Granted, he looked absolutely abysmal at times missing some easy throws and losing a fumble that possibly cost the team a victory, but that doesn’t mean he won’t put up decent fantasy numbers each week.  With Knowshon Moreno banged up and Willis McGahee looking awful, Denver may have to turn to the passing game again this Sunday against a Cincinnati team that isn’t as bad as people thought.

 

18.       Jay Cutler (@ NO) – Atlanta’s defense didn’t look nearly as good as advertised, but was it because of their skill-level or because of Jay Cutler?  The answer is it was a little bit of both as Cutler proceeded to put his detractors at bay by completing 22 of 32 passes for 312 yards and two TDs.  If New Orleans puts up a quick score or two on the Bears, Martz might just break out the old greatest-show-on-turf playbook and possibly get Cutler a good 40 passes in the dome.

 

19.       Matt Ryan (vs Phi) – Ryan may not have gotten off to the start some predicted in Week One against the Bears, but that doesn’t mean he’s going to be a bust either.  He’s still one of the most talented QBs in the game with some of the best skill-position players in the league surrounding him, so expect better things from him coming up… just not this week.  Philadelphia may have the best group of cornerbacks ever assembled in their secondary this season and can shut down any team’s passing game from week to week.  Don’t expect Matty Ice to un-freeze until Week Three.

 

20.       Sam Bradford (@ NYG) – It looks like Bradford will be okay enough to play this week against the Giants, and boy will the Rams need him.  Losing slot-receiver Danny Amendola for awhile was undoubtedly a huge blow for this up-and-coming team, but double that up with the loss of their workhorse, Steven Jackson (at least for this week), and you might say they are in just a little bit of trouble.  The Giants secondary is badly beaten up, however, so I can still see Sammy putting up some decent stats on Monday night.
