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

 

 

1.       Antonio Gates (@ NE) – No explanation necessary.  Do you really need me to tell you that Anthony Fasano went off for 82 yards on five catches last week against the Patriots, and that Fasano has never had more than 530 yards or 40 catches in his career?  Didn’t think so.  Gates is a no-brainer until his foot acts up on him again.  Period.

 

2.       Jermichael Finley (@ Car) – If you watch a Packers game close enough, you’ll notice that Finley is actually a wide receiver out there on the field running around in a tight end’s body.  He’s that athletically gifted.  Against a Carolina defense that was sixth worst in the league in allowing tight end fantasy points last season and gave up 101 yards and a TD to the Cardinals tight ends last week, it’s easy to see how Jermichael could actually put up WR1-type numbers this weekend.

 

3.       Owen Daniels (@ Mia) – I’m actually in a league right now where someone completely dropped Owen Daniels off their squad.  Do NOT be that guy, especially after a week where the Texans clearly didn’t need him to beat the hapless Colts.  Daniels is a great tight end with tremendous upside in a Texans offense that looks like it could be one of best in the league.  Miami wasn’t that hot defending tight ends in 2010 and looks even worse this season after Hernandez and Gronkowski carved them up for 189 yards and two TDs in Week One.  Start him at all costs.

 

4.       Vernon Davis (vs Dal) – This new 49ers offensive scheme may take a little bit to get going but once it does, it will be one of the more TE-friendly offenses in the league.  Dallas could barely contain a semi-good tight end in Dustin Keller last week, so Vernon might be able to live up to his billing sooner than later in Week Two.

 

5.       Aaron Hernandez (vs SD) – It’s tough to deny the effectiveness of these New England tight ends, but it might be even tougher to figure out which one of them will have a better fantasy day from week to week.  Despite their shutout of the Vikings tight ends last Sunday, if the Chargers have a weak spot on defense, it’s against the tight end.  That being the case, which one will get the fantasy love against them this weekend, Hernandez or Gronkowski?  I had to go back to last season to see if there were any trends that would tell me the answer.  What I found is that the smaller tight ends usually had the best fantasy weeks, but it was likely because the bigger tight ends would be held in to protect their QB.  Such was the case in the game between the Patriots and Chargers last year when Hernandez had eight targets, five catches and 54 yards compared to Gronk’s two targets, two catches and 10 yards.  Gronk, however, caught a 1-yard TD, but that can happen against anyone.  Basically, I think Aaron is your guy this week over Gronk, but either one is always a good play in this offense.

 

6.       Jimmy Graham (vs Chi) – Jimmy Graham, welcome to stardom buddy!  Chicago actually plays tight ends pretty well, especially in the red zone, but there are still plenty of receptions to be had.  Last week Tony Gonzalez had five catches on seven targets for 72 yards, numbers I think Graham could surpass in the game this weekend.  He might not get in the endzone as the Bears are pretty tightfisted in that area (gave up only three to TEs last season), but he’ll definitely get you some fantasy points in one way or another.

 

7.       Fred Davis (vs Ari) – Anyone who watched Freddy play last weekend against the Giants could see how good this guy is and believe me, it wasn’t a fluke.  Due to both age and injuries, Chris Cooley is on the downside of his career… and the Redskins know it.  They didn’t draft the 6’4”, 257-pound Davis in the second round of the 2008 NFL Draft for nothing.  This week he plays against an Arizona team who not only was terrible at guarding tight ends last year, but who also gave up seven catches for 129 yards to Carolina TEs last weekend.  This Sunday could be Freddy’s coming out party, folks.

 

8.       Brandon Pettigrew (vs KC) – Tony Scheffler may have stolen the fantasy glory last weekend using his lone catch to snag an 11-yard TD, but Pettigrew is still the goods on this Lions team.  He may have had an average line of four catches on six targets for 57 yards in Week One, but there are better days to come for this beast of a tight end, starting with this weekend.  The Chiefs gave up two TDs to a complete nobody TE (Scott Chandler) last Sundayand that was with their stud safety, Eric Berry, still in the lineup.  Berry, however, is now out for the year and I fully expect Stafford to take advantage using Pettigrew over the middle of the field.

 

9.       Rob Gronkowski (vs SD) – (This is simply a repeat of Aaron Hernandez's write-up as it explain the overall New England TE situation)  It’s tough to deny the effectiveness of these New England tight ends, but it might be even tougher to figure out which one of them will have a better fantasy day from week to week.  Despite their shutout of the Vikings tight ends last Sunday, if the Chargers have a weak spot on defense, it’s against the tight end.  That being the case, which one will get the fantasy love against them this weekend, Hernandez or Gronkowski?  I had to go back to last season to see if there were any trends that would tell me the answer.  What I found is that the smaller tight ends usually had the best fantasy weeks, but it was likely because the bigger tight ends would be held in to protect their QB.  Such was the case in the game between the Patriots and Chargers last year when Hernandez had eight targets, five catches and 54 yards compared to Gronk’s two targets, two catches and 10 yards.  Gronk, however, caught a 1-yard TD, but that can happen against anyone.  Basically, I think Aaron is your guy this week over Gronk, but either one is always a good play in this offense.

 

10.   Jason Witten (@ SF) – Strange seeing Witten all the way down here in the 10-slot?  Yes it is, but there’s also good reason for it.  First off, the 49ers were tops in the league last year holding opposing tight ends to the least amount of fantasy points over the season.  Second, San Fran can get after the QB and will be looking to do so again this Sunday, so Witten will likely be asked to do a little more blocking than normal.  That’s not to say he won’t get his due out there, because he will, but even the best players don’t always have the best days.

 

11.   Dallas Clark (vs Cle) – My basic reason for having Clark ranked this low is my lack of faith in Kerry Collins.  He obviously hasn’t learned how to run this offense yet and quite frankly, I don’t think he ever will.  Dallas is far too talented to start putting him down in the 20-25 range, but until I see a good game out of him and/or Collins, he simply doesn’t have the same value as he did in the past.

 

12.   Dustin Keller (vs Jax) – Keller has a ton of potential, but it doesn’t always show out on the field.  I like the way the Jets targeted him eight times last Sunday night, but how often is he going to receive that sort of attention and turn it into five catches for 61 yards and a TD?  So far in his career, it’s been a rarity, but I think that could change in 2011.  With Braylon Edwards and Jerricho Cotchery gone, Sanchez may look to Keller a bit more than he has in the past.  Against a Jags team that gave up the third most fantasy points to tight ends last year, Keller should have a chance to show his stuff once again.

 

13.   Greg Olsen (vs GB) – Olsen began his new career in Carolina nicely turning in four catches on six targets for 78 yards.  As a receiving tight end, he’s one of the best in the league and it looks like Cam Newton figured that out pretty quickly.  Despite his incredible Week One performance, I’m expecting a TON more check-downs out of Newton going forward with a bunch of those targets headed Olsen’s way.  My guess is Green Bay keeps him out of the endzone, but that doesn’t mean he won’t have a nice fantasy day regardless.

 

14.   Lance Kendricks (@ NYG) – For being the fantasy darling of the 2011 preseason, Kendricks regular season debut was plain awful.  Five targets, one catch and two drops for 18 yards is NOT the way to start a career, but it could have been worse.  He could have been amongst the slew of Rams players who went down to injury in Week One but instead, he’ll be one of the guys they’ll depend on to pick up the slack against the Giants this Monday night.  I expect a much better second game out of Lance this week.

 

15.   Kellen Winslow Jr. (@ Min) – Looks like it’s going to be the same old story for Winslow this season.  Sure, his Week One production of six receptions on eight targets for 66 yards is nice (even better in a PPR league), but as usual, Kellen can’t seem to find the endzone.  Minnesota gave up 11 receptions to Chargers tight ends last weekend, but they should be commended for holding Gates without a TD.  If Gates can’t score against them, Winslow won’t either.  Expect the norm from Junior again this Sunday.
