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.

Quarterbacks                 (Updated:  Saturday, Oct. 13 - 11:29AM CT)

 

 

1.           Matt Ryan (vs. Oak) – Matt Ryan and this Atlanta offense just keeps getting better. There may be a week with a letdown coming at some point as it happens to everyone somewhere along the way, but it won’t be this week against a terrible Oakland secondary. The Raiders currently allow the fifth-most passing yards, sixth-most TD passes and sixth-most fantasy points to quarterbacks per game and are one of only two teams in the league not to intercept a single pass on the season (Detroit is the other). With Roddy White playing like a top-5 receiver, Julio Jones completely healthy again and Tony Gonzalez playing like a 25-year old, I just don’t see how Matt Ryan can go wrong in this game.


2.           Peyton Manning (@ SD - Monday Night) – First of all, Peyton Manning currently ranks fourth in the league in fantasy points behind just Drew Brees, Matt Ryan and RGIII. Everyone knew it was a possibility for this to happen but how many actually thought it would? My guess would be five percent, but it’s probably much less. As for Week 6, Manning has always done well in Monday night games averaging more yards and TDs per game than he has on Sundays throughout his career. He’s also averaged 304 passing yards in seven career games against the Chargers, his third-highest average against any other team in the league. Strangely, on the down side of things, San Diego is also one of only three teams he’s thrown more INTs against (16) than TDs (12), though I don’t expect that trend to continue in this one. Look for Manning and Rivers to have a nice little shootout this Monday night with Manning winning out in the fantasy column.


3.           Ben Roethlisberger (@ Ten - Thursday Night) – 24-for-40 – 363 yards – 1 TD – 1 INT


4.           Aaron Rodgers (@ Hou - Sunday Night) – Though he’s thrown seven touchdowns over the past two weeks while completing 70.3 percent of his passes (against two of the worst defenses in the league), something seems wrong in Packerland and it’s starting to worry Rodgers’ fantasy owners. Granted, these same owners will take the fantasy points he’s been putting up any day of the week, but it sure would be nice to have Greg Jennings back, Jordy Nelson playing better and ANYTHING out of Jermichael Finley. Houston’s defense is one of the best in the league, but the recent loss of their star linebacker, Brian Cushing, could have them out of sorts this Sunday night. If so, Rodgers will make mincemeat out of them and have his typical QB1 type of game.


5.           Eli Manning (@ SF) – Eli Manning is having another incredible year so far and most of it has been done without the services of WR Hakeem Nicks. Whether or not he’ll have Hakeem Nicks to throw to this week is still up in the air, though it’s actually looking pretty good that he will right now. Whatever the case, the 49ers have one of the tougher defenses in the league, though they can actually give up some pretty sweet fantasy performances when facing a really good quarterback. Last year when the Giants traveled to San Fran, Eli threw for 311 yards and two TDs against them so we know he has the tools to succeed this week. If Nicks comes back, the chances of a great game are obviously increased, but either way, Domenik Hixon, Rueben Randle and Ramses Barden have ALL done well enough in Hakeem’s place for Eli’s fantasy owners not to worry too much.


6.           Andrew Luck (@ NYJ) – Andrew Luck is kind of something special already, isn’t he. He’s only four games into his career, but he already has three 300-yard games, three multiple-TD games, a last-minute comeback win against Aaron Rodgers and the Packers when his team was down by 18 at the half, AND he’s third in the league in fantasy points per game. This week he goes up against a Jets squad in complete disarray right now, though they still aren’t too shabby against the pass despite the loss of Darrelle Revis. Indy, as expected, hasn’t run the ball very well this season and now that Donald Brown is out for a couple of weeks, it might not get much better. Because of this, I fully expect Luck to toss the pill around all game and probably end up with more attempts than his current average of 44.25 per game. With that many passes and the way he’s playing, QB1 stats are almost a given.


7.           Michael Vick (vs. Det) – Michael Dwayne Vick has been downright atrocious this season as far as holding onto the ball as he enters Week 6 with five lost fumbles and six interceptions, by far the most combined turnovers in the league. That being said, if turnovers don’t cost you points in your league, then Vick’s running ability and two 300-yard games give his fantasy owners a borderline QB1 this season. He’s done pretty well despite Jeremy Maclin’s subpar, injury-riddled season as well and could be in for a nice game against the Lions this Sunday with Maclin back close to full health. Detroit’s defense has been just so-so this season and plays far worse on the road, so look for Vick to pull off a little magic in Philly this Sunday.


8.           Tom Brady (@ Sea) – Brady is most definitely back on track with his favorite wide receiver, the Slot Machine, but last week’s performance was a bit of a letdown for his fantasy owners. For the third time this season after doing it only twice in 2011, Brady threw for just one TD, though he slightly made up for it by running in his second TD of the year as well. The New England running game has been so dominant that he hasn’t needed to throw for a ton of TDs, but he’ll need to do it this week against a Seattle defense ranked in the top-5 against the run. The Seahawks also happen to be outstanding against the pass holding Aaron Rodgers, Sam Bradford and Cam Newton to a combined ZERO TDs over the last three weeks, but when Brady throws the ball as much as I expect him to this weekend, all bets are off.


9.           Philip Rivers (vs. Den - Monday Night) – Rivers has had a tough time so far this season, but he seems to have turned things around as of late and has his fantasy arrow pointing straight up again. Like his opposition this week, Peyton Manning, Rivers’ best day to play on over the course of his career has been under the bright lights of Monday Night Football, so to expect anything less than a good fantasy battle between the two would be just silly. Manning should come away with the better stats in this one due to my belief that Norv Turner will use Ryan Mathews quite a bit and that he’ll do well with the opportunity, but Rivers should have a QB1-type game of his own. In fact, I think the running game will open up the secondary for a couple of deep passes by Rivers and it wouldn’t shock me to see two long TDs out of him this Monday night.


10.       Matthew Stafford (@ Phi) – I don’t think there is a quarterback and his offense that needed a bye week more than Matthew Stafford and the Detroit Lions got this past week. Their offense has been visibly out of sync while Stafford himself has thrown just three TDs on the season. Playing against the Eagles in Philly isn’t the greatest environment to turn it around in, but it’ll have to do. Eli Manning proved that you can go into Philadelphia and throw for 300-plus yards and multiple TDs a couple of weeks ago, and he did it without Hakeem Nicks, so why can’t Stafford? I’m banking on Staff and the Lions having figured a few things out during their break with one of those problems clearly being the timing between Matty and his receivers. If practices went well during their bye, we should see it right away and though I have a tough time seeing him put up top-tier stats, Staff should be able to squeak out some low-end fantasy numbers this Sunday.
