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.

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.
