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

 

 

LATAVIUS MURRAY – RB – VIKINGS – AVAILABLE IN 78% OF CBS LEAGUES

Dalvin Cook has been lost for the season with an ACL injury, which means that Latavius Murray will once again be the starter for the Vikings. He was not very impressive this week with 21 yards on seven carries, and two catches for eight yards, but he is now the starter going forward.

 

WILL FULLER – WR – TEXANS – AVAILABLE IN 79% OF CBS LEAGUES

Fuller saw his first action of the year this week and he caught four passes for 35 yards with two touchdowns. Fuller was targeted downfield by Watson, and while they did not connect, those will come. Fuller is a nice add in long touchdown leagues, and it looks like he will see the second most amount targets after Hopkins.

 

WENDALL SMALLWOOD – RB – EAGLES – AVAILABLE IN 30% OF CBS LEAGUES

Smallwood did see the increase in workload and he had a nice fantasy week. He rushed 10 times for 34 yards with a touchdown, and caught four passes for 45 yards. With Sproles out his role has increased, and he is getting ample carries which is a good sign.

 

AARON JONES – RB – PACKERS – AVAILABLE IN 98% OF CBS LEAGUES

The Packers lost both Ty Montgomery and Jamaal Williams to injury and Jones stepped in and looked good, carrying the ball 13 times for 49 yards with a touchdown. If they both miss time Jones will be the lead back, and regardless he may have leapfrogged Williams with this performance.

 

ALFRED MORRIS – RB – COWBOYS – AVAILABLE IN 87% OF CBS LEAGUES

Morris had two carries for 76 yards, but that is not why he is on this list. We will find out the fate of Ezekiel Elliott on Monday, and if suspended Morris becomes the lead back.

 

ALVIN KAMARA – RB – SAINTS – AVAILABLE IN 38% OF CBS LEAGUES

Kamara has become the second back in the Saints backfield, and you might even consider him the #1 with the way he is used in the passing game. He carried the ball five times for 25 yards and added 71 yards with a score on 10 catches. Sean Peyton is going to look for more ways to get this kid the ball. Grab him now if available.

 

DEVIN FUNCHESS – WR – PANTHERS – AVAILABLE IN 44% OF CBS LEAGUES

Funchess showed up big time this week in New England, catching seven passes for 70 yards with two touchdowns. Drops have always been a problem, but he is getting the targets now. This may be his best fantasy game of the year, but he is definitely going to be a bigger part of the passing offense going forward.

 

COOPER KUPP – WR – RAMS – AVAILABLE IN 42% OF CBS LEAGUES

The rookie has been up and down this season, but this was another up week with five catches for 60 yards and a score. Sammy Watkins is helping to open things up for Kupp, and he is developing a nice rapport with Goff.

 

GERONIMO ALLISON – WR – PACKERS – AVAILABLE IN 83% OF CBS LEAGUES

Allison did not record a stat last week, but he will see a lot more action this week while Davante Adams recovers, which could be a long time. Allison will step in as the third receiver, and will have lots of chances with Aaron Rodgers throwing the pill.

 

JARON BROWN – WR – CARDINALS – AVAILABLE IN 92% OF CBS LEAGUES

Jaron Brown was able to be effective with John Brown also on the field this week. He caught eight passes for 122 yards, so he is showing nice upside. The only problem is all the other receivers he is competing with, but I think it is bad news for them. If he improves his consistency he could be a major boom to fantasy lineups.  

 

WAYNE GALLMAN – RB – GIANTS – AVAILABLE IN 97% OF CBS LEAGUES

Paul Perkins and Shane Vereen have been horrible this season, so the Giants finally let the rookie hit the field to see what he could do. He finished with 11 carries for 42 yards and caught two passes for eight yards and a touchdown. He is likely to see a larger workload going forward, as Perkins was terrible again with 13 yards on nine carries.

 

ANDY DALTON – QB – BENGALS – AVAILABLE IN 32% OF CBS LEAGUES

Dalton is starting to get it together, and this week he completed 25 of 30 passes for 286 yards with four touchdowns and no interceptions. This offense has a lot more potential and they are starting to show it.

 

JARED GOFF – QB – RAMS – AVAILABLE IN 66% OF CBS LEAGUES

Goff had a gutsy performance in a road in victory Dallas this week and completed 21 of 36 passes for 255 yards with two touchdowns and no interceptions. He is available in a lot of leagues, and this offense is really coming together.

 

AUSTIN HOOPER – TE – FALCONS – AVAILABLE IN 45% OF CBS LEAGUES

Hooper has been seeing his role in the passing game increase this season, and it could be in for an even bigger boost. He caught five passes for 50 yards this week, but the big news was the injuries to Julio Jones (hip) and Mohamed Sanu (hamstring). If they miss an extended period of time Hooper will be needed to pick up the slack in the passing game.

 

DANNY AMENDOLA – WR – PATRIOTS – AVAILABLE IN 48% OF CBS LEAGUES

When Amendola is healthy he makes plays, and that was the case this week. He caught six passes for 42 yards with a score. Brady has faith in Amendola, and he is only receiver that is running the underneath routes in the offense.

 

DESHAUN WATSON – QB – TEXANS – AVAILABLE IN 50% OF CBS LEAGUES

Watson was great this week, throwing for 283 yards with four touchdowns, one interception, and ran for 24 yards with another score. Will Fuller added another dimension to the passing attack, and Watson is a playmaker.

 

D’ONTA FOREMAN – RB – TEXANS – AVAILABLE IN 41% OF CBS LEAGUES

The rookie continues to be second back behind Lamar Miller, and while Miller went off this week Foreman had a ho-hum day with 13 carries for 45 yards. He is still a big part of what the Texans are doing, and if Miller goes down he takes over as the starter.

 

ALEX COLLINS – RB – RAVENS – AVAILABLE IN 87% OF CBS LEAGUES

Collins was the most dynamic runner for the Ravens this week, gaining 82 yards on nine carries, although he did have a fumble. It looks like the rookie is going to get more carries going forward, and that is bad news for Terrance West. Collins is worth adding in deeper leagues.

 

ANDRE ELLINGTON – RB – CARDINALS – AVAILABLE IN 52% OF CBS LEAGUES

The DUKE is making an impact in fantasy once again. He is finally in his correct spot as the change of pace back to Chris Johnson, and he is doing major damage as a receiver. He caught eight passes for 78 yards and carried the ball five times for 18 yards.

 

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

Chris Johnson had 13 carries this week, which was the most on the team, but he only gained 32 yards. He also caught three passes for 31 yards, but failed to find the endzone. Johnson is not going to give you a good game when they go to the passing attack, as they did this week.

 

CAMERON BRATE – TE – BUCCANEERS – AVAILABLE IN 48% OF CBS LEAGUES

O.J. Howard had the long touchdown catch, but it was Brate down the stretch that got it done for Winston and the Bucs. He finished with four catches for 80 yards and a touchdown. Howard has more flash, but Brate is the safety blanket for Winston and out there on more snaps.

 

KENDALL WRIGHT – WR – BEARS – AVAILABLE IN 62% OF CBS LEAGUES

It has not been good to be a Bears receiver this year, but Wright is the best of what is left and last week he caught four passes for 51 yards. The best news for Wright is that Mike Glennon is sure to lose the starting job in the coming weeks, if not this week. His stock goes up with Trubisky under center.

 

ADAM HUMPHRIES – WR – BUCCANEERS – AVAILABLE IN 99% OF CBS LEAGUES

Humphries was a nice target for Jameis Winston this week, catching six passes for 70 yards. Humphries is doing a good job working underneath of DJax and Evans.

 

ROBBY ANDERSON – WR – JETS – AVAILABLE IN 80% OF CBS LEAGUES

Anderson only caught three passes this week, but he gained 59 yards. He is a deep threat receiver, but does not get enough looks on a consistent basis to truly be trusted in fantasy.

 

ELIJAH MCGUIRE – RB – JETS – AVAILABLE IN 90% OF CBS LEAGUES

The rookie is getting his looks while Matt Forte is out, and this week he made good use of his touches. McGuire had 10 carries for 93 yards, including a 69-yard run for a score. He also added 38 yards on two catches. This type of performance is going to have the Jets wanting to get him the ball more, which makes this backfield a nasty proposition when Forte returns.

 

JUJU SCHUSTER-SMITH – WR – STEELERS – AVAILABLE IN 96% OF CBS LEAGUES

The rookie caught three passes for 47 yards with a score this week. He has become the third receiving option behind Brown and Bryant, and while he is not going to have monster games his workload should provide a better floor going forward. He is still only worth adding in deeper leagues.

 

TAYLOR GABRIEL – WR – FALCONS – AVAILABLE IN 63% OF CBS LEAGUES

Gabriel did not record a catch this week, but he could be in for more work if Julio Jones (hip) and Mohamed Sanu (hamstring) both miss time with injuries.

 

JALEN RICHARD – RB – RAIDERS – AVAILABLE IN 63% OF CBS LEAGUES

It was a nothing-special day for Richard, with two carries for seven yards and one catch for 20 yards. The Raiders may have lost Derek Carr for some time due to a back injury, and that is not good news for Richard.  

 

BEN WATSON – TE – RAVENS – AVAILABLE IN 65% OF CBS LEAGUES

Watson had a decent week, catching five passes for 43 yards. The Ravens had a hard time generating offense this week, and Watson continues to be a safety blanket for Joe Flacco.

 

ED DICKSON – TE – PANTHERS – AVAILABLE IN 89% OF CBS LEAGUES

Dickson had three receptions for 62 yards this week as the starting tight end. He is not going to dazzle you, but he is getting chances while Olsen recovers.

 

MITCH TRUBISKY – QB – BEARS – AVAILABLE IN 91% OF CBS LEAGUES

Mike Glennon has been horrible and it is only a matter of time before Mitch gets the call, and it could be as soon as this week.

 

TYLER KROFT – TE – BENGALS – AVAILABLE IN 100% OF CBS LEAGUES

Kroft is making his presence know while Tyler Eifert remains out. This week he was a big part of the offense, catching six passes for 68 yards with two scores. When Eifert returns his value goes away.

 

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

Kearse did not do much this week with four catches for 17 yards. There is going to be a lot of inconsistent play from Kearse the rest of the way.

 

KENNY STILLS – WR – DOLPHINS – AVAILABLE IN 58% OF CBS LEAGUES

Stills was quiet this week with only three catches for 13 yards. They did try to utilizing him on screens, so maybe he is going to see more looks in the coming weeks.
