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:  Sunday, Oct. 7 - 11:23AM CT)

 

 

1.               A.J. Green (vs. Mia) – It doesn’t look like the man-child known as A.J. Green is going to stop his dominance anytime soon. After exploding for nine catches, 183 yards and a TD in Week 3, Green came back against the Jags last week to put up six catches for 117 yards and another touchdown. He’s on pace for 108 catches, 1,712 yards and 12 TDs, numbers that would rival Calvin Johnson’s insane 2011 season. This week, the Bengals take on a Miami defense that’s been pretty porous against the pass allowing at least one receiver to snag eight or more catches and/or 100 yards in three of the first four games, so it wouldn’t surprise me to see A.J. have another monster stat-line this Sunday.


2.               Roddy White (@ Was) – Roddy and Julio Jones are easily interchangeable within these two spots, but Roddy and Matt Ryan are clicking so well right now, I had to give the higher nod to Mr. White. The kid went absolutely ballistic in his inter-division matchup with the Panthers last weekend catching eight balls for 169 yards and two TDs, though it’s not unfamiliar territory for him as he tends to have games like that at least once or twice a year. Against the worst pass defense in the league this Sunday, I expect Roddy to have another fun-filled fantasy game as both he and Julio Jones have a shot to put up over 100 yards and a touchdown each. In fact, I’ll go out on a limb to say that the two Falcons receivers combine for three touchdowns and 250 yards this weekend.


3.               Victor Cruz (vs. Cle) – When Eli Manning makes it a point to get Victor Cruz the ball; the kid is as unstoppable as any receiver in the game. His propensity for the big play is up there with the best of them and will be on display once again against the CB Joe Haden-less Cleveland Browns. If Cruz can put up nine catches for 109 yards and a touchdown against a tough pass D like the Eagles, then he should have no problem besting or at least equaling them against one of the worst pass defenses in the league this weekend. The Browns have allowed the most TDs, second-most fantasy points and third-most yards to opposing wide receivers this season.


4.               Julio Jones (@ Was) – Julio certainly has his fantasy owners freaking out a bit right now after his one catch for 30 yards stinker last weekend, but rest assured, the best cure for a fantasy lull is exactly what Jones and the Falcons have on tap this Sunday; a league-worst Redskins pass D. Matt Ryan knows that if the Falcons are going to make a run at a Super Bowl title this season, he has to have his young, up-and-coming star receiver at full tilt by mid-season, so I expect him to throw at him quite a bit in this game. With the Redskins allowing by far the most fantasy points per game to wide receivers this season, Jones should be able to get back on track and ease his fantasy owners’ minds.


5.               Wes Welker (vs. Den) – The Patriots were under .500 for the first time since 2003 and needed a win pretty f’in badly, so what did Tom Brady and the rest of the team do? They went back to the basics of what made them a winning team in the past; offense, offense, offense…with a nice focus on getting the ball in Wes Welker’s hands. The Slot Machine now has 22 catches on 32 targets for 366 yards over the last three weeks while concerns about his role in the offense have all but disappeared. The Broncos have been average against the pass this season, but any game that features a Tom Brady versus Peyton Manning matchup can turn into an aerial display, and I believe this one will. Both teams have been pretty stout against the run allowing just 3.4 yards/carry each and three rushing TDs combined, so expect Welker to see his fair share of action this Sunday.


6.               Percy Harvin (vs. Ten) – The Detroit Lions came out to say a couple of days ago that their whole defensive scheme was set up to shut down Percy Harvin. You have to hand it to them as they did very well in accomplishing their goal, yet Percy STILL took back the opening kickoff for a touchdown on them…which unfortunately for fantasy owners were pretty much the only points he scored on the day. The good news is that with the Titans on tap this weekend, there’s absolutely ZERO chance something like that happens again. Not only is Tennessee terrible against the pass, but they can’t stop the run either so no matter how the Vikings plan on getting Percy the ball this weekend, he’s more than likely going to do something special with it. I’m expecting a real nice game here with at least eight catches, 120 total yards and a touchdown.


7.               Andre Johnson (@ NYJ - Monday Night) – At 31 years old and dogged by injuries the last couple of years, this isn’t the same Andre Johnson that we all came to know as one of the best wide receivers in the game over the last decade. Then again, this isn’t the same New York Jets secondary that was one of the league’s best year in, year out, either. Johnson is dealing with a minor groin issue as well but will be just fine and has no chance of missing this Monday night contest. Jets CB Darrelle Revis, however, is done for the season which will make Johnson’s ability to roam the secondary a lot easier. The Texans will likely run a ton in this one, but with Arian Foster’s backfield mate, Ben Tate, questionable to play with a toe injury, they may turn to the pass a little more than usual which should mean double-digit targets for ‘Dre. In the 21 games he’s received 10 or more targets since 2009; Johnson has put up less than 9.5 fantasy points just once.


8.               Demaryius Thomas (@ NE) – Demaryius Thomas’ fumble last week against the Raiders was potentially disastrous for fantasy owners, but lost touchdown aside, you can’t be TOO unhappy with a five-catch, 103-yard fantasy day. This week he’ll take on the Patriots in what should turn into a shootout real quick, seeing how both defenses have stifled their opponents running games rather well through four weeks of the season. You gotta love the little matchup stories inside this game with Brady vs. Manning, Welker vs. Decker and on the outside, Brandon Lloyd against Demaryius. I feel the only one the Broncos take in these fantasy showdowns is the Thomas against Lloyd matchup, but all six of these players should score very well for fantasy teams this Sunday. Buckle up, it’s going to be a wild one!


9.               Jordy Nelson (@ Ind) – So Nelson finally had a game worth writing home about, but was it simply because he was playing against a terrible Saints defense? Was it because Greg Jennings was in the game for a little while to draw attention away from him? Or was it because he and Aaron Rodgers are finally back on the same page? I’m going to say it was a mixture of all three, but luckily for Nelson and his fantasy owners, the Colts secondary isn’t much better than the Saints. However, Greg Jennings won’t be suiting up for at least this week, so Nelson may see an extra body on him from time to time. Still, Jordy should be able to come through with a couple of lengthy catches as the Colts are prone to giving up the big play. This COULD be the breakout game we’ve been waiting for from Nelson.


10.           Brandon Marshall (@ Jax) – If Matt Forte and Michael Bush were both completely healthy, I might have moved Marshall down a few spots. That said, they aren’t, so Cutler is going to have to throw the ball some like he did against the Cowboys last Monday night. The Jaguars rush defense is one of the worst in the game, but even though their pass D isn’t the Superman of Super Heroes, they aren’t half bad either. They do allow 255 passing yards a game, though, and seem to have a bit of a problem with bigger wide receivers, so if Brandon gets close to double-digit targets like he should, he could be in for a big game.
