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.

TE Player Rankings – Week 4

 

 

 

QB Rankings  RB Rankings  WR Rankings

 

Tight Ends

 

 

1.       Rob Gronkowski (@ Oak) – Until Aaron Hernandez comes back from his injured knee, Gronkowski will occupy this top slot… regardless of whether Antonio Gates is fully healthy and playing or not.  He and Brady are simply too good together… like a vanilla oreo.

 

2.       Jimmy Graham (@ Jax) – If anyone were to supplant Gronk in the number one slot this week, it would have been Jimmy Graham. First of all, the kid is awesome. Simply awesome. Second, the Saints backup tight end, David Thomas, will be out this week with a concussion, so Graham stands to see a little more playing time because of it. Third, Jacksonville is awful at defending the tight end ranking third worst in the league last year and now in the bottom eight again this season.

 

3.       Jermichael Finley (vs. Den) – Watching this man-child catch passes from Aaron Rodgers is a Sunday treat you simply don’t want to miss. That three-touchdown performance last weekend against the Bears may only be the beginning with this kid as it seemed he could pretty much do anything he wanted out there on the field. Congrats to those of you who drafted him.

 

4.       Jason Witten (vs. Det) – As expected, Witten was the most-targeted player on the Cowboys last Monday night with Miles Austin out of the lineup, though he could only manage six catches for 60 yards with the Redskins hounding him all evening. Detroit may be even better at stuffing Witten this weekend as they rarely let tight ends go off on them, though I’m sure Romo will find a way to get his groomsman his fantasy goods.

 

5.       Vernon Davis (@ Phi) – After Vernon complained about the offense not getting the ball in his hands enough through Week Two, the ‘Niners coaching staff tended to his needs by throwing the ball his way nine times last weekend. Eight catches and 114 yards later, Davis is happy, and should continue to be this weekend against an Eagles team that is only so-so at containing tight ends.

 

6.       Greg Olsen (@ Chi) – It’s not the most exciting homecoming for a player in recent years, but Olsen returning to Soldier Field to take on the Bears should at least serve as motivation for the athletic tight end. Chicago allowed Jermichael Finley to have his way with them last weekend and though Greg will come nowhere close to the same fantasy output, there’s definitely a good chance he does something good for your team.

 

7.       Brandon Pettigrew (@ Dal) – Stafford finally remembered what Pettigrew was good for last weekend… the bailout dump off pass. Brandon was able to turn his whopping 13 targets into 11 catches for 112 yards. He still hasn’t caught one in the endzone for the Lions, but that should come real soon, like maybe this weekend against a Dallas D that has given up the sixth most fantasy points to tight ends this year.

 

8.       Owen Daniels (vs. Pit) – Owen looks like he’s got his swagger back after being targeted nine times last week and catching a TD pass for the second weekend in a row. The Texans will need some nice production out of him if they want to beat the Steelers, so watch for Schaub to get him involved early.

 

9.       Scott Chandler (@ Cin) – After doing absolutely nothing during his first four years in the league, Scott Chandler suddenly hit his stride by catching TD passes in each of the Bills first three games. He now has four on the season, which is one behind Gronk, and it wouldn’t surprise me to see him snag another one against a Cinci D that allows the seventh most fantasy points to tight ends this year.

 

10.     Fred Davis (@ StL) – Davis was finally given recognition as a superior tight end talent by the Cowboys last Monday night as he was constantly double-teamed and taken out of the play. However, I’m not sure St. Louis will be able to do the same as Fred’s athleticism will be on display in the dome all day long. With Chris Cooley back in the mix, teams will at least have to pay him some attention which will undoubtedly leave Davis in single-coverage. Fantasy owners should love that.
