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:  Sunday, Oct. 21 - 9:32AM CT)

 

 

Drew Brees - Pyro Character

1.           Drew Brees (@ TB) – Despite playing one less game than most other QBs, Brees is only seven passing attempts behind Tom Brady for the league lead at this point. After breaking Johnny Unitas’ record for consecutive games with a TD pass two weeks ago, Brees comes back off his bye to face an inter-division Buccaneers squad whom he averaged over 320 yards a game against last season. With WR Lance Moore returning to the starting lineup and Tampa Bay’s best cornerback Aqib Talib suspended, I expect Drew to have no problem throwing for his fifth 300-yard game and fourth three-TD game of the season this Sunday.


Aaron Rodgers - Pyro Character

2.           Aaron Rodgers (@ StL) – Whatever was wrong in Packerland throughout the first month of the season, it’s been solved. Not only is Aaron Rodgers back to his normal self, but he also now leads the league in TD passes (16) and has crept up into third place in fantasy points per game. The St. Louis Rams defense has been nothing short of amazing in righting its ship from last year’s atrocity, but the tear Rodgers is on right now can’t and won’t be stopped this weekend. 


Eli Manning - Pyro Character

3.           Eli Manning (vs. Was) – Strange as it sounds, the Giants didn’t need to throw the ball against the 49ers last week to beat them, so much to the dismay of his owners, Eli Manning had a bit of a mediocre fantasy day. As luck would have it, though, the G-Men draw one of the league’s worst pass defenses this Sunday with the Washington Redskins coming to town, so buck up fantasy owners. The ‘Skins have allowed the most passing yards, the third-most passing TDs and the sixth-most fantasy points to QBs this year, so it looks like things are lining up well for Eli this weekend. It also looks like Hakeem Nicks is nearing complete health at this point as he practiced on Wednesday this week for the first time in a while. He’s had some trouble with Washington in the past, but this isn’t the same defense so I highly doubt the woeful trend continues.


Robert Griffin III - Pyro Character

4.           Robert Griffin III (@ NYG) – Never again will I doubt Mr. Robert Griffin. I don’t care if it’s Jr., Sr., RGIII or Dr. Robert Griffin, I’m starting him on my fantasy team every week from here on out. A hit like the one he took against the Falcons two weeks ago would have normally scared a QB away from running for at least a little while. Not Griffin. “Black Jesus”, as TE Fred Davis dubbed him, decided to show the world how he deals with adversity by totaling the most rushing attempts he’s had in a game so far this year (13) while also putting up the fourth-most rushing yards in a game EVER BY A QB (138). So this week he takes on a Giants team that’s actually been pretty darn good against the pass this season, but I really don’t care. If Michael Vick can rush for 49 yards on six carries against them back in Week 4, what will Black Jesus do?


Tom Brady - Pyro Character

5.           Tom Brady (vs. NYJ) – Brady set a career high in passing attempts (58) during last weekend’s loss to the Seahawks, a stat that should be a bit of a telltale as to what Belichick will have the team doing this Sunday. The New England running game had been dominant up until they met Seattle and though Brady could certainly pass all over this Jets team, I expect them to get running the ball a bit more in this one. That doesn’t mean The Stetson Man won’t put up great fantasy stats, because he will, but the Patriots ability to run will keep him in more of the mid-QB1 range this week.

 

 

Ben Roethlisberger - Pyro Character

6.           Ben Roethlisberger (@ Cin - Sunday Night) – Rashard Mendenhall is banged up, Isaac Redman is banged up, they’re playing on the road and are going to be losing in this game. What do YOU think Big Ben is going to do? That’s right; he’s going to pass the shit out of the ball. Roethlisberger has already been averaging 39.4 passing attempts per game this season which is easily the most in his career, so I fully expect that trend to continue and Big Ben to do pretty well considering the mediocrity of the Bengals pass D.


 

Tony Romo - Pyro Character

7.           Tony Romo (@ Car) – I can’t tell you how many people were saying before the season started that this was “going to be Tony Romo’s year”. I also can’t tell you how many people I had to convince NOT to believe that statement because frankly, I’ve heard the same thing for five years now and not once has it come close to happening. That being said, Romo can’t be THIS bad, can he? The answer is No, he’s not, but he’s also no better than a low-end QB1 any single week of the season. This week he’ll go up against a Carolina pass D that looks mediocre in the books, but really isn’t even that good simply because most teams choose to run all over them instead of pass. When you WANT to or NEED to pass on them, though, you can which the Cowboys will likely have to do with DeMarco Murray out of the lineup and Felix Jones unable to sustain a workload over 15 carries or so.


Andrew Luck - Pyro Character

8.           Andrew Luck (vs. Cle) – So Luck finally has a little adversity to deal with as he pretty much stunk, up the joint against the Jets last Sunday. It wasn’t Brady Quinn-type of awful as he at least threw for 280 yards, but two interceptions and 50 percent passing while getting crushed 35-9 by a so-so Jets team is not what you would call stellar. He’ll have a good opportunity to make up for it this week, however, with his Colts heading back home to face a Cleveland Browns pass D that has allowed the most passing TDs and fifth-most fantasy points to QBs so far this season. It’s strange to say it, but the Indianapolis Colts-Cleveland Browns game could be a shootout folks, so hold on to your fantasy hats.


 

Matt Hasselbeck - Pyro Character

9.           Matt Hasselbeck (@ Buf) – Hasselbeck may be over the hill, or past his prime, or have one foot in the grave, or whatever else you want to say about him but one thing he’s not—he’s not too old to put up big-time fantasy numbers against this Buffalo Bills defense. If Mark Sanchez can throw for three TDs, Matt Cassel can throw for 300 yards, and Alex Smith can do BOTH in the same game against them, then Hasselbeck can do it too. Kenny Britt looks like he’s back, or at least if he wasn’t quite back in his last game, it certainly pissed him off enough to go ballistic in this one, so I fully expect the old man to get him the ball and put up some real nice fantasy numbers because of it.

 

 

Andy Dalton - Pyro Character

10.       Andy Dalton (vs. Pit - Sunday Night) – Dalton has thrown far too many interceptions so far this season (9), but he’s also had three games with over 300 yards and three touchdowns as well which as a fantasy owner, I’ll take any day of the week. Andy had a bit of trouble against the Steelers last season throwing for a total of 305 yards and three TDs in two games against them, but this isn’t the same vaunted Pittsburgh D of the past and with Troy Polamalu already ruled out, Dalton’s prospects get even better. Steelers DB Ike Taylor isn’t the same shutdown guy he used to be either and with A.J. Green looking like the best wide receiver on the planet right now, I’m betting on some real nice numbers out of the Cinci QB this Sunday night.



Quarterbacks 11-27


 

11.       Carson Palmer (vs. Jax)


12.       Joe Flacco (@ Hou)


13.       Josh Freeman (vs. NO)


14.       Matt Schaub (vs. Bal)


15.       Cam Newton (vs. Dal)


16.       Ryan Fitzpatrick (vs. Ten)


17.       Jay Cutler (vs. Det - Monday Night)


18.       Matthew Stafford (@ Chi - Monday Night)


19.       Christian Ponder (vs. Ari)


20.       Brandon Weeden (@ Ind)


21.       Mark Sanchez (@ NE)


22.       John Skelton (@ Min)


23.       Russell Wilson (@ SF - Thursday Night) – 9-for-23 – 122 yards – 0 TDs – 1 INT


24.       Sam Bradford (vs. GB)


25.       Alex Smith (vs. Sea - Thursday Night) – 14-for-23 – 140 yards – 1 TD – 1 INT


26.       Blaine Gabbert (@ Oak)


27.       Tim Tebow (@ NE)
