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.       Rob Gronkowski (@ Buf) – I’m telling you, if this guy’s last name was Jackson or Johnson or whatever, I would STILL call him “Gronk”.  He simply looks and plays like a guy named Gronk.  That said, with Aaron Hernandez out for the near future, Rob Gronkowski should have a field day out there racking up stats at a record pace.  It won’t matter who the Patriots are playing, though the Bills DID give up the most TDs to tight ends last season and allowed the second most fantasy point to them as well, Gronk is going to go nuts no matter who it is.  Get him in there and don’t even THINK of taking him out for awhile.

 

2.       Jason Witten (vs Was) – How far do you really think Romo can throw the ball with a cracked rib?  Well, maybe still a lot farther than you or me, but he definitely won’t be at full tilt this Monday night.  With Miles Austin out for the game and Dez Bryant still iffy with his quad injury, I expect Witten to see at least 10 targets in this one and possibly even more than that.  Oh, and by the way, in his last game against these Redskins, Jason put up 140 yards on 10 catches with one TD.  Just sayin’.  OH, and one MORE thing:  If Romo isn’t ready to play or has to be taken out in the middle of the game for any reason, guess who Jon Kitna’s favorite target is?  Yep, “The Groomsman”, Mr. Witten.

 

3.       Antonio Gates (vs KC) – Taking Gates out of the number one slot was really tough to do, especially against a completely decimated Chiefs team, but I had to do it.  The Chargers could very easily be up by a wide margin at halftime and might take Gates out of the game to rest his plantar fasciitis.  Of course, he could very well be the reason San Diego crushes KC, so I have to leave him at least in the top-3.

 

4.       Jermichael Finley (@ Chi) – The Bears don’t give up many TDs to tight ends, but they sure do allow a ton of catches and yards to them.  Finley has merely been so-so through the first couple of weeks, but the guy has to break out sooner or later, and I’m thinking it could be this week against their inter-division rival.  Last season against the Bears, Jermichael caught all nine of his targets and took them for 115 yards.  Something tells me he’ll have a shot to repeat those numbers on Sunday.

 

5.       Fred Davis (@ Dal) – If nobody has Fred Davis in your league for some reason, go grab him immediately.  The guy is one of the more athletic TEs in the league and it seems he’s put enough space between him and Chris Cooley to warrant a weekly start.  Dallas was really good against tight ends last season, but not so much this year as they’ve already given up two touchdowns and 150 yards to them through two weeks of action.  Grossman loves his TE, so get Fred in your lineup.

 

6.       Jimmy Graham (vs Hou) – Most people would say that Jimmy Graham hasn’t quite lived up to the super-hype he was receiving before the season began, but when you look a little closer, he’s actually on pace for 80 receptions, 1,080 yards and eight TDs.  Those are some serious TE numbers, folks.  This weekend looks to be another shootout against the high-powered Texans, so get Graham in your lineup and expect some top-flight numbers.

 

7.       Greg Olsen (vs Jax) – Cam Newton won’t be able to live off the bomb to Steve Smith all year long and will have to start checking down to his talented tight end sooner or later.  My guess is it’ll be this week against a Jags D that allowed the third most fantasy points to tight ends last season and don’t look to be much better in 2011.  Jeremy Shockey is being used more as a blocking TE in this offense, which leaves Olsen free to release off the line and act like the wide receiver he really wants to be.

 

8.       Vernon Davis (@ Cin) – Vernon has been a huge disappointment thus far, but this week’s matchup against the Bengals could be what the doctor ordered for him to get off the schneid.  Cinci has already given up a couple of TDs to tight ends this season, so I expect Alex Smith to look his way quite a bit.  Besides, Vernon already opened his mouth to the team/coaches looking to be fed a little more going forward, and my guess is that they will adhere to his demands.

 

9.       Marcedes Lewis (@ Car) – The monster that is Marcedes Lewis is back at practice and ready to suit up for the Jags this week.  Carolina has been pretty bad against tight ends this season and with coach Jack Del Rio opting to go with the rookie under center this week, Lewis might be looking at a ton of targets from Blaine Gabbert.

 

10.   Dallas Clark (vs Pit) – Colts players are falling down the totem pole left and right these days, but if I had my choice of one guy I had to have on my team, it would be Dallas Clark.  First off, Kerry Collins is not a throw deep type of quarterback, so I look for him to dump it off to Clark more often than not from here on out.  Second, his O-Line is getting him killed at this point, so some shorter drop-backs and quicker passes to Clark might be the answer.  He won’t be the Dallas of old, but he still could have some worth here.
