Tyrod Taylor

Buffalo Bills

Ready to Roll


In Tampa's two road games this season, both QBs (Case Keenum & Carson Palmer) had top-4 fantasy weeks. Tyrod Taylor gets TB in BUF Sunday coming off his bye week. His schedule looks pretty sweet for the rest of the season as well. He'll have to figure out who he's going to throw to, but he'll get rushing yards to secure his floor.

Amari Cooper

Oakland Raiders

Get Right Spot?


Kansas City has the most air yards against this year, and the 6th most receiving yards against. Both KC CB’s have given up 3 TDs. The most vulnerable depth to attack KC is 15 yards. Over their careers, Cooper has been better at 15 yard depths and up than Crabtree.
Eventually NFL players break out of their slumps, because they are good, even Cooper. Tonight could be the night, there’s nothing like the spotlight to get your superstar going.

Adrian Peterson

New Orleans Saints

Well, that was fast...


After just one game, Adrian Peterson has 36.51% of the Arizona Cardinals running back rush yards this season.

Fantasy Goo: He's an RB2 for now, but if he can stay healthy... watch out.

Buffalo Bills

The Bills are under center more in 2017


Last season the Buffalo Bills ran shotgun on 81% of their plays, 74% of their runs came from the shotgun. In 2017 however, Buffalo is averaging just 44% plays from shotgun. Just 25% of their runs have come from shotgun. They are averaging 5.18 yards per rush in shotgun and 2.76 from under center.

Fantasy Goo: McCoy is currently 25th in fantasy points for RBs coming off his bye week with only one 100-yard game and zero touchdowns. Might be time to change it up a little bit HC Sean McDermott and OC Rick Dennison.

Minnesota Vikings

FanDuel Triple Play


Davonte Adams vsNO - $6,900 – Adams was peppered with 10 targets and caught a TD from Brett Hundley in week 6. The peppering will continue to be hot against the Saints defense which is giving up the 6th most points to WRs.

Jimmy Graham @NYG - $5,800 - The Giants are giving up the most points to TE’s this season. Sitting at the top of list in allowing 14.2 FF to the position that has the best basketball players. Graham is a slam dunk this week.

Derrick Henry

Tennessee Titans

Titans in the Backfield


Mike Mularkey said the run game split on MNF (near 50-50 for DeMarco Murray-Derrick Henry) was a good model. He also added that Henry is the go-to RB in the 4th quarter.

Fantasy Goo: I believe this is the target, but we will see this vary from week-to-week. If Murray is healthy or fired-up, like he may be after his coaches’ comments, he will be the guy to start. As the season whines down so will Murray, buy Henry for your playoff run, he’s more than just a handcuff.

Marlon Mack

Indianapolis Colts

Turbin Done for Season


Colts HC Chuck Pagano expects RB Robert Turbin to miss rest of season with arm injury he suffered Monday night. Turbin has averaged 6+ touches per game over the past four weeks.

Fantasy Goo: This might seem insignificant, but I expect Marlon Mack will pick-up all of those touches. An extra 6 touches from Mack could mean a major boost in production. Grab him if you can, he’ll be explosive when Luck comes back.

Ezekiel Elliott

Dallas Cowboys

Two More Weeks of Zeke


Ezekiel Elliott has been granted another temporary restraining order by the Southern District of New York, and will be allowed to play Week 7. The restraining order, is for 14 days. So it appears Elliott will also be good for Week 8.

Fantasy Goo: Hold off on all the Morris/McFadden love for a couple more weeks. If you have them you’re probably holding if you’re a contender, but I’d sell high to the Zeke owner if you can. This is gearing up for Zeke to be out during the fantasy playoffs.

Kenny Golladay

Detroit Lions

Golladay. Celebrate


If we picked up Golladay
Take some time to celebrate
Just one day out of life
It would be, it would be so nice
Everybody spread the word
We’re gonna have a celebration

Every season there is that player that propels a team to the fantasy promise land. Kenny Golladay possesses that high upside potential down the stretch that can be invaluable. Golladay last played in week 3 before suffering a hamstring injury, and Matthew Stafford has missed his 213lb 6’4 receiver. After throwing for 7TDs in the first 3 weeks; Stafford has only thrown for 2TDs before exploding in week 6 against the Saints with 3 tosses. This was a result of the game being out of hand and being forced to throw 52 times. Golden Tate was injured in this game and word is he will be out a few weeks. The Lions are on a bye in week 7, which gives Tate a free week to rest, but more importantly gives Golladay a free week to get ready to explode on the scene once again at home in week 8 against the Steelers. Tate and Marvin Jones Jr are what they are at this point. Golladay gives Stafford the kind of big threat target that he has lacked since the Decepticon leader himself MEGATRON retired. You can’t teach height and talent, and that is a gunslingers favorite type of weapon to use.

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.

All players listed are available in at least 30% of CBS Leagues

 

 

J.J. NELSON – WR – CARDINALS – AVAILABLE IN 53% OF CBS LEAGUES

J.J. was the big man making big plays this week, catching five passes for 120 yards, highlighted by a 45-yard touchdown. Nelson is the big play threat for Arizona and John Brown is a constant question mark, so grab Nelson now.

 

MATT FORTE – RB – JETS – AVAILABLE IN 40% OF CBS LEAGUES

Forte was the more impressive back for the Jets, as Bilal Powell has had trouble getting going in the first two games. Forte had nine carries fro 53 yards, and caught four passes for 38 yards this week. Powell had 13 total yards. Forte is an effective receiver, and could see a larger workload next week.

 

CHRIS CARSON – RB – SEAHAWKS – AVAILABLE IN 34% OF CBS LEAGUES

Carson was the man at running back for the Seahawks, running the ball 20 times for 93 yards, and he caught one pass for 7 yards to give him 100 total yards on the day. Lacy is a non factor, and Rawls does not look like he will be able to keep Carson from getting the Lion share of carries going forward.

 

SAMAJE PERINE – RB – REDSKINS – AVAILABLE IN 51% OF CBS LEAGUES

Rob Kelly left with an inury to his ribs and Perine stepped in as the lead back, carrying the ball 21 times, but gained just 67 yards. The rookie will continue to be the load back if Kelly misses time. Thompson is the change of pace back, but he sure can change the pace.

 

CHRIS THOMPSON – RB – REDSKINS – AVAILABLE IN 56% OF CBE LEAGUES

Thompson only had three carries, but two of them went for scores, including a 61-yard scamper. He finished with six touches for 106 yards and two scores. Rob Kelly could miss time with the injury and Thompson is lightening in a bottle. 

 

CHRIS JOHNSON – RB – CARDINALS – AVAILABLE IN 80% OF CBS LEAGUES

CJ2K still has some life left in those legs, and carried the ball 11 times for 44 yards this week. Johnson should become the leader of the pack for carries, and he still has some speed.

 

JAMAAL CHARLES – RB – BRONCOS – AVAILABLE IN 31% OF CBS LEAGUES

Charles showed the Cowboys that he still has some giddy up, as he rushed 7 times for 44 yards and caught one pass for six yards. C.J. Anderson is the main man, but if he gets hurt look for Charles to step right in.

 

JACK DOYLE – TE – COLTS – AVAILABLE IN 46% OF CBS LEAGUES

Doyle was downgraded when Tolzien was under center, but with Brissett throwing the ball he needs to be upgraded. Jack had eight receptions for 79 yards this week. He was cleary the best target for Brissett and we already know he has value when Luck returns.

 

DWAYNE ALLEN – TE – PATRIOTS – AVAILABLE IN 93% OF CBS LEAGUES

Allen did not have a catch, but Gronk has a groin issue. If Gronk can’t play Allen becomes the starting tight end.

 

ED DICKSON – TE – PANTHERS – AVAILABLE IN 100% OF CBS LEAGUES

Greg Olsen is out with a broken foot and Dickson becomes the lead tight end for the Panthers. He caught two passes for 26 yards after Olsen left the game.

 

LUKE WILLSON – TE – SEAHAWKS – AVAILABLE IN 100% OF CBS LEAGUES

Jimmy Graham left the game after a big hit, and Willson caught three passes for 25 yards. He is the number one tight end of Graham can’t go.

 

JAY CUTLER – QB – DOLPHINS – AVAILABLE IN 52% OF CBS LEAGUES

Cutler had a nice game manager game completing 24 of 33 passes for 230 yards with a touchdown and no interceptions. Jay has a great running game and some big play receivers, so his upside is nice. This was a nice showing for his first game with the Fins.

 

KENDALL WRIGHT – WR – BEARS – AVAILABLE IN 50% OF CBS LEAGUES

The Bears have no receivers left and that makes Wright their #1 option. He caught seven passes for 69 yards, and should see a healthy amount of targets each week. He is not a big play threat, but he can do damage, especially in PPR leagues.

 

DANNY AMENDOLA – WR – PATRIOTS – AVAILABLE IN 56% OF CBS LEAGUES

Amendola did not play this week, but he is going to have some nice opportunities when he returns. If Gronkowski misses time with a groin injury, then Amendola will be a big benefactor. He just needs to get on the field. 

 

JALEN RICHARD – RB – RAIDERS – AVAILABLE IN 93% OF CBS LEAGUES

Jalen the Rocket Richard was just that this week with six carries for 58 yards, including a 52-yard touchdown, and caught two passes for 51 yards. Lynch is the hammer and Richard is the lightning in this offense. He should start to see more touches going forward.

 

RISHARD MATTHEWS – WR – TITANS – AVAILABLE IN 34% OF CBS LEAGUES

Matthews had three receptions fro 43 yards this week, and while not a big output the Titans did not have a lot of big offensive numbers even while putting up 37 points. Matthews is going to continue to get targets on a weekly basis and has the potential for big plays.

 

BEN WATSON – TE – RAVENS – AVAILABLE IN 95% OF CBS LEAGUES

Watson showed he still has game left, catching eight passes fro 91 yards. The Ravens threw the ball a lot more this week and Watson was a favorite target of Joe Flacco. The veteran is available and while he is not going to give you this on a weekly basis, he will quietly put up decent numbers.

 

ALLEN HURNS – WR – JAGUARS – AVAILABLE IN 33% OF CBS LEAGUES

Hurns saw the uptick that was expected with the injury to Allen Robinson, and hauled in six passes for 82 yards with a score this week. The Jaguars offense is still offensive to watch, but there are going to be opportunities for garbage yards and Hurns will be a garbage collector.

 

JERMAINE KEARSE – WR – JETS – AVAILABLE IN 92% OF CBS LEAUGES

Kearse is the best receiver on the Jets, and this week he caught four passes for 64 yards with two touchdowns. The Jets are going to be behind in most games, and Kearse will get a lot of garbage yards.

 

D’ONTA FOREMAN – RB – TEXANS – AVAILABLE IN 71% OF CBS LEAGUES

The Texans want to get Foreman more involved in the offense, and this week he had 12 carries for 40 yards. He is going to be in a 60/40 split with Lamar Miller, but there is upside if Miller goes down. His workload should only increase as the season moves along.

 

DUKE JOHNSON – RB – BROWNS – AVAILABLE IN 39% OF CBS LEAGUES

Duke had four carries for 21 yards and three receptions for 59 yards, including a great one handed grab. Expect him to see a larger role in the offense over the next few weeks.

 

JARED GOFF – QB – RAMS – AVAILABLE IN 77% OF CBS LEAGUES

Goff came back down to earth in Week 2, completing 15 of 25 passes for 224 yards with one touchdown and one interception. There are going to be ups and downs with this kid, so you will have to play him only based on matchups.

 

MARQISE LEE – WR – JAGUARS – AVAILABLE IN 55% OF CBS LEAGUES

Lee had seven receptions for 76 yards this week. The Jaguars offense does most of its damage in garbage time and Lee has more upside than Hurns in PPR leagues.

 

JARON BROWN – WR – CARDINALS – AVAILABLE IN 97% OF CBS LEAGUES

Jaron gets his when John Brown is out. That was the case this week, and he had four receptions for 73 yards. He is going to be hit or miss.

 

REX BURKHEAD – RB – PATRIOTS – AVAILABLE IN 70% OF CBS LEAGUES

The Patriots Swiss Army knife had two carries for three yards, but caught three passes for 41 yards with a score. Burkhead could see an increased role in the passing game if Gronk misses time and Amedola can’t return to the lineup.  

 

ALVIN KAMARA – RB – SAINTS – AVAILABLE IN 44% OF CBS LEAGUES

Kamara continues to make the Saints backfield a fantasy conundrum, but he is the back that has the most to gain in this situation. He had just one carry for three yards, but caught three passes for 51 yards. He is the most explosive of the three backs, and Payton is going to look for more ways to get this kid involved.

 

MARLON MACK – RB – COLTS – AVAILABLE IN 53% OF CBS LEAGUES

Mack was not very effective this week, but he is a long play for when Luck returns or the Colts are out of contention.

 

TORREY SMITH – WR – EAGLES – AVAILABLE IN 81% OF CBS LEAGUES

Wentz looks like the real deal, and Smith is his deep threat receiver. Torrey had four receptions for 66 yards this week. He is boom or bust, but Wentz may give him more chances to boom this year.

 

BRANDON COLEMAN – WR – SAINTS – AVAILABLE IN 97% OF CBS LEAGUES

You will not get monster games out of Coleman, but he can be effective. This week he caught four passes for 82 yards with a score. The Saints don’t have a ton of amazing weapons at receiver, so Coleman will get his looks and can be a spot start in the right matchup.

 

CHRIS CONLEY – WR – CHIEFS – AVAILABLE IN 97% OF CBS LEAGUES

Conley continues to see his role in the Chiefs offense increase. This week he caught four passes for 55 yards. With Tyreek Hill driving defenses mad, Conley will keep seeing his role grow in the offense.

 

KENNY STILLS – WR – DOLPHINS – AVAILABLE IN 82% OF CBS LEAGUES

Stills is mainly just a downfield threat, but he can put together a few nice games. He only caught two passes for 37 yards, but one of those went for a score. This is a good week for him, so expect a lot of duds.

 

CHARLES CLAY – TE – BILLS – AVAILABLE IN 57% OF CBS LEAGUES

Clay had just three receptions for 23 yards this week, but I never told you he was going to go off every week. He is still a good option in this offense that is lacking in the receiving department.

 

JARED COOK – TE – RAIDERS – AVAILABLE IN 39% OF CBS LEAGUES

Cook had four receptions for 25 yards this week. There are a lot of mouths to feed in Oakland.

 

GEORGE KITTLE – TE – 49ERS – AVAILABLE IN 97% OF CBS LEAGUES

The 49ers passing offense was horrible this week and Kittle only caught two passes for 13 yards.

 

ELI ROGERS – WR – STEELERS – AVAILABLE IN 98% OF CBS LEAGUES

Rogers is the third receiver for the Steelers and this week had four receptions for 43 yards. His value goes up if Brown or Bryant gets hurt or suspended. Also don’t start him in any road games.

 

RASHAD HIGGINS – WR – BROWNS – AVAILABLE IN 100% OF CBS LEAGUES

The second year receiver had his best game ever with seven receptions for 95 yards. Put him on your watch list, but there is no need to pick him up right now.
