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.

Wide Receivers                 (Updated:  Friday, Sept. 28 - 9:59PM CT)


 

 

1.               Demaryius Thomas (vs. Oak) – Demaryius’ below average scoring output last week is nothing for owners to worry about. Houston’s lock-down cornerback, Johnathan Joseph, is the closest thing the NFL has to Darrelle Revis in that he pretty much shuts down every wide receiver he shadows. Demaryius won’t have to worry about that when he faces Oakland this Sunday. In fact, the Raiders top two corners have been out for a while now and their replacements have been so bad, they’ve been forced to experiment with putting Michael Huff, a career, seven-year veteran free safety, at left CB. Let’s put it this way:  Two weeks ago against Miami, WR Brian Hartline had nine catches for 111 yards… In his 42-game career beforehand, he had never topped 100 yards or made more than FIVE catches in any one game. Last week Mike Wallace and Antonio Brown combined for 15 catches, 210 yards and two TDs. I see Demaryius coming down with a large chunk of that this Sunday.


2.               Calvin Johnson (vs. Min) – Calvin may be a bit behind in his TD-count so far, but he’s actually on pace to have better overall numbers than last season. Sure, it’s unlikely he puts up 128 receptions for 1,968 yards, but my point is that it’s not his level of play that has suffered, just his opportunity for more TDs. This week he goes up against a highly susceptible Vikings pass D that’s actually been playing better, but hasn’t really been tested yet this year. Megatron will certainly do that and more this Sunday en route to his typical, high-end WR1 numbers.


3.               Julio Jones (vs. Car) – Julio hasn’t been as spectacular as his Week 1 numbers led people to believe he’d be this season, but he’s still fifth in the league in fantasy points and is one of only four wide receivers to have three TDs on this young season (there are actually SEVEN tight ends with 3+ TDs). Jones was active for just one game against the Panthers last season and made it count by grabbing three balls for 104 yards and two TDs. Carolina doesn’t seem to do well against bigger receivers, either, as 6’6” Ramses Barden torched them for 138 yards on nine receptions last weekend, so Jones could be in for a big game. My only concern is that Atlanta goes up big early on and hands the game over to Michael Turner/Jazquizz Rodgers to seal it, but my guess is that it will have been Julio who put them up so much in the first place, so no worries.


4.               Wes Welker (@ Buf) – The concerns about Wes Welker and his role in the Patriots offense this season were completely justified, but probably blown a bit out of proportion. This is still Wes Welker—probably the best, little slot receiver the league has ever seen—and he wasn’t likely to be held back for long. Over the last two games, the Slot Machine has 13 catches on 21 targets for 237 yards, numbers he’ll be counted on to add to big-time this weekend while Aaron Hernandez and Julian Edelman are both sidelined. Last year playing at Buffalo, Welker had the game of his life grabbing 16 passes for 217 yards and two TDs. I’m pretty sure Brady knows it as well.


5.               Andre Johnson (vs. Ten) – Andre made the most of his four targets against the Broncos catching two of them for 72 yards and a 60-yard TD last week. Though the Texans should have no problem running all over the Titans this weekend, they won’t have a problem throwing the ball either so I expect Johnson to be heavily involved. He has six touchdowns in his last six games against this team and now won’t even have to face Cortland Finnegan, so I’m going to chalk up his seventh in seven games right now. He may not get a ton of yards or catches with Houston queuing up the Foster/Tate show for an extended viewing, but then again, he could go ballistic in the first half and win you the week on his own.


6.               A.J. Green (@ Jax) – Green plays like a man among boys out there and he’s only been in the league for 18 games (missed one in 2011)!! He’s second in the league in total fantasy points (only because Torrey Smith already played this week) and in the top-5 in everything else except receptions where he stands at No. 7. Last year playing in Jacksonville, Green put up 90 yards and a TD—numbers he should at least equal in this one.


7.               Larry Fitzgerald (vs. Mia) – Fitz FINALLY got it going on last weekend against the Eagles catching all nine of his targets for 114 yards and a touchdown. I know a lot of people who were getting worried about him, but there was really no way one of the best five receivers in the history of the league was going to be held down for long. The 3-0 Cardinals go up against a Miami defense this week that’s been so tough against the run; they almost force the other team to pass the ball to beat them (124 – most passing attempts against before Thursday). Of course, this can only be good news for Larry Fitz and his fantasy owners.


8.               Percy Harvin (@ Det) – Before the 2011 season began, Donovan McNabb went on record saying there was no reason why Percy Harvin couldn’t catch 100 passes in a season. He came close with 87 last year, but it looks like 2012 will be the year he does it as he currently leads the league with 27 receptions and doesn’t show signs of slowing down. In fact, his overall numbers may grow from here on out with WR Jerome Simpson coming back from his suspension this weekend. Simpson’s speed will stretch defenses deep and give Harvin more room to maneuver underneath, a place where the Lions pass D have given up the majority of their yards thus far. At their last meeting in Detroit, Harvin caught 10 balls for 69 yards and a TD while rushing for 40 more yards on four carries.


9.               Vincent Jackson (vs. Was) – Like it was while he was in San Diego, Vincent Jackson will put up a real nice fantasy game ever three to four weeks yet completely disappear in the others. Such has been the case thus far in Tampa Bay and will continue to be this weekend, with Jackson ending up on the GOOD side of his fantasy owners in this one. Washington’s pass defense has been so horrendous this season that it seems nearly impossible for V-Jax to get shut down. In just three games, the Redskins have allowed SIX different wide receivers to catch a TD pass with three of those guys adding in 120 or more yards. Two of them actually had 160-plus yards and as you can imagine, Washington has allowed the most fantasy points to opposing WRs because of it.


10.           Brandon Lloyd (@ Buf) – There was a lot of talk during the offseason about how quickly Tom Brady fell in love with Brandon Lloyd’s game and though he doesn’t have a touchdown as of yet, the love has shown to be true as he’s sixth overall in receptions (22) and tied for sixth in targets (33) thus far. The TDs are coming, I guarantee it, and I believe they’ll start this weekend against the Bills. Buffalo has allowed the fourth-most fantasy points to wide receivers this season and are tied for the most TDs allowed, so it’s looking pretty good for the newest Patriot on the block this Sunday.
