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.

Running Backs                 (Updated:  Friday, Oct. 19 - 7:23PM CT)

 

 

Arian Foster - Pyro Character

1.           Arian Foster (vs. Bal) – Even though he didn’t get the yardage fantasy owners would have loved to see against the Packers, it didn’t really matter as Foster still put up two touchdowns in one of his worst performances in the last year and a half. He now has ten straight games with a TD and has scored in 16 of the last 17 with 22 TDs in that span. Foster’s prowess at home has been unbelievable throughout his career as he’s averaged 100.5 rushing yards and over a touchdown per game in 20 contests, so with the Ravens aging defensive players dropping like flies out there, I can’t see Arian putting up any worse than high-end RB1 numbers this week.


Darren McFadden - Pyro Character

2.           Darren McFadden (vs. Jax) – For all intents and purposes, Darren McFadden has been a royal disappointment to his millions of fantasy owners this year. I, myself, believed he had a chance to land in the top-5 fantasy RBs this season with the only thing that could possibly stop him being his normally injury-prone ways. He’s stayed healthy for the most part, though, but now it seems he can’t get used to the Raiders new zone-blocking scheme and his numbers have suffered because of it. This week will be his big chance to get back on the righteous fantasy track as he’ll face a Jacksonville defense that allows over 4.7 yards per carry and the third-most fantasy points to RBs in the league. The last time he faced this team was in 2010 where he proceeded to go off for 209 total yards (123 rushing) and three touchdowns (two rushing), numbers that are highly unlikely to be repeated but with a talent like Run DMC, you never know.


Maurice Jones-Drew - Pyro Character

3.           Maurice Jones-Drew (@ Oak) – The little fireplug isn’t having quite the fantasy year owners were hoping for when they took the chance on him in their drafts, but he’s still hovering around the top-10 in fantasy points per game and has a relatively favorable schedule against the run for the remainder of the season. The Jaguars offense is still timid enough to depend on Jones-Drew handling the ball a bunch, but his production has wavered a bit this season after having one of the most consistent fantasy seasons on record in 2011. This week should be more of a sure thing for him, however, as Oakland isn’t all that wonderful against the run. In his last game against McFadden and the Raiders, MJD put up 120 total yards (101 rushing) and a TD, numbers that should be repeated this Sunday.


Ray Rice - Pyro Character

4.           Ray Rice (@ Hou) – The Ravens are all of the sudden a completely different team without all-world MLB Ray Lewis and shutdown CB Lardarius Webb out there, which might actually play into Ray Rice’s hands. If I were on the Ravens coaching staff right now, I would vehemently suggest more of a ball-control offense from here on out as opposed to the up-tempo style they’ve been playing in order to keep the defense off the field. My guess is they’ll be thinking the same way, at least for this game against the Texans as they’ll want to keep the ball out of Arian Foster’s hands as much as possible if they want to win the game. Either way, Houston’s defense has been decimated as well, so Rice should be able to put up his normal RB1 numbers regardless of Baltimore’s defensive problems.


Trent Richardson - Pyro Character

5.           Trent Richardson (@ Ind) – It turns out Richardson is just fine and will play this weekend after a little scare last week against the Bengals when he got nailed in the ribs. Is it possible it pops up again in the middle of this next game? Sure, but not likely against weak Colts defense that allows 5.2 yards per carry to opposing RBs. Injury or not, the kid is a beast and will surely make his presence known in a game that actually could end up being one of the higher-scoring games of the week. Trent knows he needs to improve on his yards per carry (3.6 YPC) if he wants to be considered one of the elite backs and there’s no better place than in Indianapolis to do just that.


Stevan Ridley - Pyro Character

6.           Stevan Ridley (vs. NYJ) – Stevan Ridley has had a bit of an up-and-down season thus far putting up three fantasy stinkers and three fantasy gems thus far, but I believe he breaks the tie with a monster game this Sunday. With the Patriots passing all over the place last week and coming away with a fat L in the standings, you have to believe they’ll want to change it up a bit and start running the ball with authority again. Besides, the Jets rush D has been one of the worst in the league thus far, so why not give Brady a bit of a break (after putting up a career high in passing attempts last week) and get Ridley going again. Belichick knows you need a running game to win it all, so it wouldn’t surprise me to see The Riddler get 25 touches in this one.


Matt Forte - Pyro Character

7.           Matt Forte (vs. Det - Monday Night) – Coming off a bye, Forte is well rested and should be geared up to kick a little ass again right now with the division-rival Detroit Lions on the docket for Monday night. The strength of the Lions defense right now is obviously in their front four, as they’ve allowed just 3.4 yards per carry to running backs and only one rushing TD, but when it comes to these inter-division games, all stats go out the window. In his eight career games against the Lions, Forte has NEVER put up less than 12.4 non-PPR fantasy points and has four 100-yard rushing games, one 100-yard receiving game and seven total touchdowns. Basically, he really really likes playing these guys.


Adrian Peterson - Pyro Character

8.           Adrian Peterson (vs. Ari) – Peterson has had 20 or more touches in four straight games now and just put up his most total yards in a game last week with 129 (79 rushing, 50 receiving). He’s also been running with some serious ferocity lately and seems to be getting better and better every week. One of these games he’s going to break out and show the world that Purple Jesus has indeed risen again to lead his fantasy owners back into the Promised Land. This week he takes on an Arizona Cardinals team that’s been pretty stout against the run this season, but has been eaten up pretty badly the last couple of weeks against the Rams and Bills, so there’s no reason to think Peterson won’t be able to do the same.


Alfred Morris - Pyro Character

9.           Alfred Morris (@ NYG) – Alfred Morris has been one of the biggest and nicest surprises of the season thus far and should continue his hard-nosed ways this week against the Giants. One of the things we’ve regularly preached here at Pyro is that it’s always nice to have a running back on fantasy team who happens to be in an offense with a running quarterback. QBs that can gather the attention of opposing linebackers and safeties leave open holes for RBs where there might not normally be. Morris has taken advantage of his situation very well so far and with New York giving up nearly 4.8 yards per carry, I see no reason to think he won’t be able to put up some nice fantasy numbers this week.


Fred Jackson - Pyro Character

10.       Fred Jackson (vs. Ten) – This matchup is just too sweet to pass up for a guy like Fred Jackson. C.J. Spiller will undoubtedly get his fair share of the workload, but if you notice, I also have C.J. ranked pretty high coming in at #13. Both of these guys will put up nice numbers this Sunday against a Tennessee Titans team that not only allows the fourth-most fantasy points per game to RBs this season, but in real life, have also allowed the most points scored against them coming in at 34 points allowed per game. Basically, there should be FIVE touchdowns out there for Buffalo Bills players to grab. Being the goal-line back, you really think Freddy-J isn’t coming down with at least one of ‘em?



Running Backs 11-50


11.       Doug Martin (vs. NO)


12.       Felix Jones (@ Car)


13.       C.J. Spiller (vs. Ten)


14.       Chris Johnson (@ Buf)


15.       Darren Sproles (@ TB)


16.       Alex Green (@ StL)


17.       Mikel Leshoure (@ Chi - Monday Night)


Ahmad Bradshaw - Pyro Character

18.       Ahmad Bradshaw (vs. Was) – Bradshaw deserves to be in the top-10 and would probably be ranked there if not for his latest bout with a recurring foot issue. It’s actually no surprise to hear that Bradshaw is dealing with a foot problem again as the Giants coaching staff decided to give the kid 57 rushes (62 touches ) over the past two weeks, easily the most usage he’s seen throughout his six-year, injury-riddled career. That said, he DID kick some serious ass with those 57 carries putting up 316 yards and two TDs over the last two games (one of them against a beastly 49ers defense). Before you get him in your lineup, make sure to watch the news coming out of the Giants practices as he was only able to put in one limited session on Thursday.
