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:  Wednesday, Sept. 26 - 6:06PM CT)

 

 

1.           Tom Brady (@ Buf) – Is Tom Brady off to a slow fantasy start? Absolutely, but it really hasn’t been THAT bad if you look at the numbers. He’s thrown for 887 yards, good for sixth in the league and just 26 yards behind the number two guy, Joe Flacco. He also has the eighth-most passing attempts and fourth-most completions (79-118 for a 66.9% completion percentage), so it’s not like he’s throwing poorly, either. The only problem is that he simply hasn’t gotten into the endzone as much as usual (4 TDs), an epidemic that will change this weekend against the Bills. Last year when the Stetson man visited Buffalo, he came away with 387 yards and four TDs while back in New England, he nearly equaled the production by tossing for 338 yards and three TDs. If Mark Sanchez can throw for 266 yards and three TDs against the Bills and Matt Cassel can toss up 301 with 2 TDs so far this season, do you really think Brady will somehow do worse?

 

2.           Peyton Manning (vs. Oak) – By the eye-test, he’s not the Peyton Manning we’re accustomed to seeing out there every Sunday, but his fantasy stats will do just fine for his first three games back from neck surgery. Almost 275 yards/game and five TDs while facing three strong defenses in Pittsburgh, Houston and at Atlanta is far better than most expected and will be even more impressive when he’s done ripping apart the Raiders beat-up secondary this Sunday. Willis McGahee (ribs) looks like he’ll suit up but will be at less than 100 percent, so look for a big game out of Manning en route to mid- to high-end QB1 stats.

 

3.           Aaron Rodgers (vs. NO) – I usually hate sayings like this one because it has no form of factual evidence to be based upon, but Rodgers really is “due for a big game”. I didn’t figure on him turning his slow start around against an underrated, tough-as-nails Seattle defense last Monday night (and no, I will NOT talk about that last-second play here), but this week against the Saints, I absolutely do. Everyone knows by now how bad the Saints rush D has been this season, but their pass D really hasn’t been all that much better. Last year when these two teams faced off in Week 1 at Green Bay, Rodgers threw for 312 yards and three TDs on 77.1% passing. I see no reason why he won’t put those same numbers up again this weekend.

 

4.           Drew Brees (@ GB) – Brees leads the league in passing attempts (137) for good reason—the Saints defense can’t keep opponents out of the endzone to save their lives! Not like they are a running team anyway, but Drew has had to do a little extra work so far in 2012 and though he’s still third in fantasy points, he’s looked bad in getting there. Not having Head Coach Sean Payton on the sidelines has obviously been the biggest problem, but for Brees specifically, you can’t ignore both the loss of WR Robert Meachem and that Colston is playing at less than 100 percent. The Saints are one of only two teams in the league at 0-3 (Browns) and need to right the ship quick, so even though I don’t think they’ll beat the Packers in Green Bay, I do believe they’ll let Drew Brees go nuts in an effort to pull off the unlikely victory. Last season in Lambeau, Drew threw for 419 yards and three TDs in a loss. Green Bay’s pass defense is WAY better than last season so I don’t expect THOSE numbers, but he’ll still come away with QB1 fantasy points.

 

5.           Robert Griffin III (@ TB) – Griffin still leads the league in fantasy points after three weeks of action and should be able to hold down his spot through the first quarter of the season this weekend. His best receiver, Pierre Garcon, was missing yet again last weekend and just like he did in Week 2, Griffin STILL found a way to put up top-5 QB fantasy points for the week. This Sunday, the Redskins face a Tampa Bay defense that has allowed the most passing yards in the league by far (1,096 yards – 365.3 yds/game!!!), though they’ve only given up four passing TDs. The Redskins defense has been awful as well, so Griffin should be passing the ball a bunch while possibly playing from behind.

 

6.           Matthew Stafford (vs. Min) – First it was said to be a calf, then a hamstring, and now it’s supposedly Stafford’s HIP that’s got him all bothered. We won’t know officially until Friday what his chances are of playing this weekend, but all signs point towards his suiting up and giving it a go. He’s only thrown one TD in each of the first three games and averaged 287.7 passing yds/gm thus far, but he has the fourth-most attempts and the absolute most completions, so his fantasy turnaround is likely coming very soon. Last season Stafford averaged 302.5 yards and two TDs against this Vikings defense and though they seem to have gotten better against the pass, it’s only been a minimal improvement and won’t hamper the Lions normal passing attack. I’m expecting a real firm QB1 game out of Staff this weekend.

 

7.           Joe Flacco (vs. Cle - Thursday Night) – Flacco made my top-10 QBs last week at No. 8 and did nothing against the Patriots to bump him in Week 4. I’m usually not a big fan of Thursday night games from a fantasy perspective because of the short week teams have to prepare an offensive game-plan, but I like Flacco for a few reasons in this one. First, on a shortened week, a team that’s playing well and putting up points may simply decide to go with whatever has been working. For the Ravens, it’s been Flacco taking control of their new no-huddle offense. Second, Cleveland has been pretty stingy against the run and is one of only five teams to not allow a rushing TD this season. Third, all three QBs the Browns have faced thus far have put up 21 or more fantasy points against them (Vick, Dalton and Fitzpatrick). I think we can all connect the dots here.

 

8.           Matt Ryan (vs. Car) – Matt Ryan is still doing what I thought he’d do this season; which is carving up defenses with tremendous accuracy, increasing his TD percentage and putting up top-5 QB fantasy numbers. In fact, he currently leads the league in both completion percentage (72 percent) and QB Rating (114.0) and though Roddy White, Julio Jones and Tony Gonzalez have a lot to do with it, Ryan and his mastery of the Falcons new offense deserves a ton of credit. I’m not the biggest fan of his matchup this week as team’s can run all day against the Panthers, but I have a feeling the Falcons will want to get ahead early on the arm of Matty Ice and then turn it over to Turner and Rodgers later on to seal the deal. Two and a half to three quarters of up-tempo offense should be enough to secure QB1 stats for Ryan this week and if Carolina can somehow keep the game close, Ryan could have a monster game.

 

9.           Eli Manning (@ Phi - Sunday Night) – Eli Manning is the only QB with more than 1,000 passing yards (1,011) and leads the next highest total by almost 100 yards. Five years ago, I don’t think anyone would have called this type of ascension, but Eli has CLEARLY entered elite status not only as an NFL quarterback, but as a fantasy player as well. Last year when the Giants traveled to Philadelphia, Manning put up his lone four-TD game of the season, but only threw for 254 yards. Philly has been pretty close-fisted against the pass this season, though they DID just allow Kevin Kolb to pass for 222 yards, two TDs and no INTs against them so they’re obviously beatable. With Nicks, Cruz, Martellus Bennett and now Ramses Barden to trust in, I like Manning’s chances of success in what could be a crazy-ass game.

 

10.       Michael Vick (vs. NYG - Sunday Night) – Vick has had a pretty crazy year thus far, but he does have the Eagles at 2-1 and put up two good fantasy games for his owners…except for all the interceptions/fumbles, of course. This week he’ll have Jeremy Maclin back in time to go up against the inter-division rival Giants and their sub-par pass defense. If the offensive line can keep Vick upright for a few seconds, it would go a long way towards his fantasy production as Maclin, DeSean Jackson and Brent Celek overmatch the Giants secondary pretty healthily. I also expect LeSean McCoy to be used more this week after under-utilizing him in Week 3, a move which would force the Giants to bunch the line a bit and give the receivers more room to roam. As usual, Vick is definitely a high-risk/high-reward QB play this Sunday night.
