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.

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

 

 

RISHARD MATTHEWS – WR – TITANS – AVAILABLE IN 35% OF CBS LEAGUES

Matthews is that under the radar player that just gets it done. This week he caught six passes for 87 yards, highlighted by a 55-yard catch and run for a score. He has big game ability and should be owned in all leagues.

 

ELI MANNING – QB – GIANTS – AVAILABLE IN 34% OF CBS LEAGUES

Everyone is down on Eli, but he still has OBJ and this week he showed why that matters, throwing for 366 yards with three touchdowns and two interceptions. Eli will have to throw more with their lack of a running game, and OBJ is healthy.

 

DUKE JOHNSON – RB – BROWNS – AVAILABLE IN 31% OF CBS LEAGUES

Duke is seeing his role in the offense increase, and he is the only receiving back the Browns trust. He was active as a receiver this week with six catches for 81 yards, and he had two carries for 23 yards, including a 19-yard scamper for a score. Johnson will be a player you can use as a flex play and bye week replacement.

 

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

Goff showed his growth at the quarterback position this week, completing 22 of 28 passes for 292 yards with three touchdowns and no interceptions. Gurley is running hard, and they are letting Goff go in the offense, which is going to produce more games like this in the future.

 

JAMAAL CHARLES – RB – BRONCOS – AVAILABLE IN 37% OF CBS LEAUGES

Charles continues to produce, and he will see his role increase in the offense. The week he had nine carries for 56 yards with a score, and caught one pass for one yard. C.J. Anderson has yet to show that he can be a 250 carry back, and Charles is showing the explosion he is known for and will see more touches as the season goes on.

 

CASE KEENUM – QB – VIKINGS – AVAILABLE IN 99% OF CBS LEAGUES

If Bradford misses another game you might want to consider adding Keenum. He completed 25 of 33 passes for 369 yards with three touchdowns and no interceptions. The Vikings are running an efficient offense.

 

DESHAUN WATSON – QB – TEXANS – AVAILABLE IN 72% OF CBS LEAGUES

Watson threw for 301 yards with two touchdowns and two interceptions, but also ran eight times for 41 yards. The rookie is getting more comfortable, and the rushing yards are a big bonus for fantasy owners.

 

SAMAJE PERINE – RB – REDSKINS – AVAILABLE IN 39% OF CBS LEAGUES

 

CHRIS JOHNSON – RB – CARDINALS – AVAILABLE IN 36% OF CBS LEAGUES

 

ALVIN KAMARA – RB – SAINTS – AVAILABLE IN 43% OF CBS LEAGUES

Kamara has claimed a role in the Saints offense and this week he had two carries for 37 yards, with a 25-yard touchdown, and caught three passes for five yards. The Saints love his explosion, and he is the most explosive back they have. They could trade Peterson or Ingram, and if they do then Kamara’s stock goes way up.

 

ROBBY ANDERSON – WR – JETS – AVAILABLE IN 83% OF CBS LEAGUES

Anderson finally made a fantasy appearance this week with 95 yards on three receptions with a 69-yard touchdown. This is still the Jets offense and he only had three receptions, so temper your future expectations.

 

CHARLES CLAY – TE – BILLS – AVAILABLE IN 59% OF CBS LEAGUES

Clay continues to play well. This week he caught six passes for 39 yards with a touchdown. He is still a favorite target of Tyrod Taylor, and his floor is rising.

 

D’ONTA FOREMAN – RB – TEXANS – AVAILABLE IN 60% OF CBS LEAGUES

Foreman did not do anything special this week as a runner, gaining 25 yards on eight carries, but he did gain 65 yards on two receptions. This rookie will only see his role increase as the season goes on, and is a must own for Lamar Miller owners.

 

C.J. PROSISE – RB – SEAHAWKS – AVAILABLE IN 71% OF CBS LEAGUES

Chris Carson has locked down the lead back role, but Prosise is the change of pace. He had four carries for nine yards, but caught three passes for 65 yards. His explosion makes him worth a shot, but he needs more consistent touches.

 

JAY CUTLER – QB – DOLPHINS – AVAILABLE IN 43% OF CBS LEAGUES

Cutler was just a game manager this week, and not a great one. He completed 26 of 44 passes for 220 yards with one touchdown and one interception. He is likely to have a lot of games like this, which is why Jared Goff is a better option.

 

DANNY AMENDOLA – WR – PATRIOTS – AVAILABLE IN 49% OF CBS LEAGUES

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.

 

TRAVIS BENJAMIN – WR – CHARGERS – AVAILABLE IN 95% OF CBS LEAGUES

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.

 

ROBERT WOODS – WR – RAMS – AVAILABLE IN 96% OF CBS LEAGUES

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.

 

JALEN RICHARD – RB – RAIDERS – AVAILABLE IN 47% OF CBS LEAGUES

 

BEN WATSON – TE – RAVENS – AVAILABLE IN 72% OF CBS LEAGUES

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.

 

GERONIMO ALLISON – WR – PACKERS – AVAILABLE IN 87% OF CBS LEAGUES

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.

 

JERMAINE KEARSE – WR – JETS – AVAILABLE IN 51% OF CBS LEAGUES

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.

 

MARQISE LEE – WR – JAGUARS – AVAILABLE IN 50% OF CBS LEAGUES

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.

 

WENDALL SMALLWOOD – RB – EAGLES – AVAILABLE IN 83% OF CBS LEAGUES

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.

 

ALEX COLLINS – RB – RAVENS – AVAILABLE IN 94% OF CBS LEAGUES

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.

 

BRIAN HOYER – QB – 49ERS – AVAILABLE IN 90% OF CBS LEAGUES

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.

 

DESHONE KIZER – QB – BROWNS – AVAILABLE IN 78% OF CBS LEAGUES

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.

 

TAYLOR GABRIEL – WR – FALCONS – AVAILABLE IN 66% OF CBS LEAGUES

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 – WR – PANTHERS – AVAILABLE IN 47% OF CBS LEAGUES

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.

 

ADAM HUMPHRIES – WR – BUCCANEERS – AVAILABLE IN 94% OF CBS LEAGUES

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 – WR – BUCCANEERS – AVAILABLE IN 96% OF CBS LEAGUES

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…see what I did there.

 

BRANDON COLEMAN – WR – SAINTS – AVAILABLE IN 93% OF CBS LEAGUES

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 – WR – DOLPHINS – AVAILABLE IN 66% OF CBS LEAGUES

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 – TE – PANTHERS – AVAILABLE IN 78% OF CBS LEAGUES

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 – RB – BILLS – AVAILABLE IN 84% OF CBS LEAGUES

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.

 

RASHAD HIGGINS – WR – BROWNS – AVAILABLE IN 60% OF CBS LEAGUES

Higgins came back down to earth with two catches for 10 yards…told ya so!
