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

 

 

ROGER LEWIS – WR – GIANTS – AVAILABLE IN 100% OF CBS LEAGUES

OBJ is out for the rest of the season and Lewis is going to see a major uptick in targets. He caught one pass on Sunday for a 29-yard touchdown, and it showed some nice early chemistry with Eli Manning. The Giants are still looking for a running game, so Lewis will see a lot of targets on a weekly basis going forward.

 

MARLON MACK – RB – COLTS – AVAILABLE IN 78% OF CBS LEAGUES
The rookie was back after missing last week, and he was impressive. He finished with 91 yards and score on nine carries, and caught one pass for two yards. Mack nearly scored a second touchdown, but was ruled down at the one. Frank Gore is going to be sharing carries with Mack the rest of the way, as he brings electricity that has been missing from the Colts backfield.

 

NELSON AGHOLOR – WR – EAGLES – AVAILABLE IN 74% OF CBS LEAGUES

Agholor has been a big surprise this season, and he was at it again this week catching four passes for 93 yards with a long touchdown. The Eagles take more shots downfield than any other team, so while he might be hit or miss, he has a better chance to hit with the extra shots from Wentz.

 

ED DICKSON – TE – PANTHERS – AVAILABLE IN 92% OF CBS LEAGUES

Dickson was a monster this week against the Lions, catching five passes for 175 yards. Obviously you can not count on him to give you this on a regular basis, but he has been showing a nice floor of at least 40 yards per game since taking over for the injured Greg Olsen.  

 

GEORGE KITTLE – TE – 49ERS – AVAILABLE IN 99% OF CBS LEAGUES

The rookie tight end became a major target of Brian Hoyer down the stretch of their game against the Colts this week. He finished with seven catches for 83 yards and a score. The 49ers have been looking for someone to make plays from the tight end position, and it seems clear that the University of Iowa product will be that man the rest of the way.

 

J.J. NELSON – WR – CARDINALS – AVAILABLE IN 35% OF CBS LEAGUES

Nelson finally showed some flash again this week, catching four passes for 80 yards, but was held out of the endzone. Palmer is spreading the ball around the offense, but Nelson is the best deep threat receiver that they have.

 

DION LEWIS – RB – PATRIOTS – AVAILABLE IN 87% OF CBS LEAGUES

Rex Burkhead continues to miss games, and Lewis has gotten into a groove in the Pats offense. This week he had seven carries fro 53 yards and caught two passes for 10 yards. The more time Burkhead misses, the better the chance that Lewis can take over the role if he continues to play well.

 

COOPER KUPP – WR – RAMS – AVAILABLE IN 35% OF CBS LEAGUES

Kupp was pretty well held in check this week with just three receptions for 44 yards. He should have had a 20-yard touchdown catch to win the game for the Rams, but it went through his hands. There is still a lot of upside with Kupp, and the Rams offense is much improved this year.

 

JARON BROWN – WR – CARDINALS – AVAILABLE IN 50% OF CBS LEAGUES

Brown had a hard time getting going this week, catching just three passes for 39 yards. The Cardinals had a hard time getting anything going this week; so don’t let this deter you on going after Brown.

 

WAYNE GALLMAN – RB – GIANTS – AVAILABLE IN 38% OF CBS LEAGUES

Gallman continues to show well in his second game, carrying the ball 11 times for 57 yards, and caught five passes for 25 yards. Touchdowns are still going to be something that will be hard to come by, but it seems like Gallman should continue to see a decent amount of touches, and his workload could increase if he continues to show improvement.

 

ANDY DALTON – QB – BENGALS – AVAILABLE IN 33% OF CBS LEAGUES

Dalton started off with bang, connecting with A.J. Green on a 77-yard touchdown, but that was his only touchdown throw of the day. He had 328 passing yards with two interceptions, both of which could have been caught by A.J. Green. Dalton is still a solid option if you are hunting the waiver wire for weekly matchups.

 

DAVID NJOKU – TE – BROWNS – AVAILABLE IN 91% OF CBS LEAGUES

The rookie made two dazzling catches this week, including a one hander for a score. He finished with three receptions for 48 yards and the score. He is getting more involved in the Browns offense, and is one of the best playmakers that they have on the roster.

 

COLE BEASLEY – WR – COWBOYS – AVAILABLE IN 61% OF CBS LEAGUES

Beasley was very active in the first half of this game, catching two touchdowns, but he did not do much else. He finished the game with four receptions for 23 yards with the two scores. He is a mismatch in the redzone, and after this performance he may get more looks down there.

 

JARED GOFF – QB – RAMS – AVAILABLE IN 49% OF CBS LEAGUES

Goff had a tough matchup this week, and the numbers showed it, completing 22 of 45 passes for 288 yards with no touchdowns and two interceptions. He also ran for 22 yards, and he drove the Rams down the field and gave them a chance to win the game. This was against the Seahawks, so you have cut the kid some slack on the fantasy production this week.

 

MIKE WALLACE – WR – RAVENS – AVAILABLE IN 53% OF CBS LEAGUES

Wallace showed his big play ability this week, catching three passes for 133 yards, but was held out of the endzone. Wallace is another hit or miss, but Flacco has been taking more shots downfield. Unfortunately Wallace does not do much else these days.

 

BRIAN HOYER – QB – 49ERS – AVAILABLE IN 82% OF CBS LEAGUES

It was a good matchup for Hoyer this week and he showed why, throwing for 353 yards with two touchdowns and no interceptions. Hoyer is always there on the wire for all of you streamers. Next week may not be as appetizing facing the Redskins on the road.

 

AUSTIN HOOPER – TE – FALCONS – AVAILABLE IN 57% OF CBS LEAGUES

Don’t sleep on Hooper just because he was on a bye this week. There are a lot of tight end options on the wire, and the benefit for Hooper is his big play ability.

 

AUSTIN SEFERIAN-JENKINS – TE – JETS – AVAILABLE IN 45% OF CBS LEAGUES

ASJ was not that impressive from a yardage standpoint, but he was targeted often and in the redzone. He caught six passes for 29 yards with a touchdown, but the Jets offense doesn’t offer a lot of fantasy production.

 

D’ONTA FOREMAN – RB – TEXANS – AVAILABLE IN 46% OF CBS LEAGUES

He has been getting consistent touches. We will see how he performs tonight against the Cheifs.

 

ALEX COLLINS – RB – RAVENS – AVAILABLE IN 49% OF CBS LEAGUES  

Collins worked as the second back behind Javorious Allen and finished with 12 carries for 55 yards. He is stuck in a secondary back role, but if Allen gets hurt it will be his backfield.

 

KENDALL WRIGHT – WR – BEARS – AVAILABLE IN 60% OF CBS LEAGUES

We shall see how his chemistry is with Mitch Trubisky this Monday, and if the Bears offense is more effective under the rookie, Wright could be a nice add in deeper leagues.

 

ELIJAH MCGUIRE – RB – JETS – AVAILABLE IN 52% OF CBS LEAGUES

McGuire was not impressive this week, running 11 times for 20 yards, and catching two passes for 10 yards. Bilal Powell left the game, so he should see an increased workload if Powell misses any time.

 

TORREY SMITH – WR – EAGLES – AVAILABLE IN 88% OF CBS LEAGUES

Torrey is and always will be boom or bust. This was a boom week, catching three passes for 70 yards with a long touchdown. Wentz takes a lot of shots downfield, but Smith needs to add more to the route tree to be counted on for consistent production.

 

JUJU SCHUSTER-SMITH – WR – STEELERS – AVAILABLE IN 89% OF CBS LEAGUES

JuJu had a pretty quiet day until garbage time, and finished with four receptions for 48 yards.

 

BEN WATSON – TE – RAVENS – AVAILABLE IN 58% OF CBS LEAGUES

Watson did not do much of anything this week, catching two passes for two yards, although he was targeted in the redzone.

 

MITCH TRUBISKY – QB – BEARS – AVAILABLE IN 77% OF CBS LEAGUES

The rookie makes his debut against the Vikings this Monday. If he can impress against a good defense, he could be worth adding in deeper leagues, or two quarterback leagues.

 

JERMAINE KEARSE – WR – JETS – AVAILABLE IN 48% OF CBS LEAGUES

Kearse found the endzone this week, but he only caught four passes for 38 yards. The touchdowns are sporadic and he does not give you enough yards to truly be trusted.

 

ADAM HUMPHRIES – WR – BUCCANEERS – AVAILABLE IN 91% OF CBS LEAGUES

Humphries continues to do just enough to stay on this list. He caught three passes for 51 yards, but is only an option in very deep leagues.

 

TYLER HIGBEE – TE – RAMS – AVAILABLE IN 99% OF CBS LEAGUES

Higbee had a nice game this week, catching four passes for 98 yards. He is a downfield threat as a tight end, and he is starting to develop a nice chemistry with Jared Goff. He is worth monitoring over the next few weeks

 

MARQUISE GOODWIN – WR – 49ERS – AVAILABLE IN 97% OF CBS LEAGUES

The speedster showed his speed this week, catching five passes for 116 yards. The only problem is that he is a hit or miss receiver and you more than likely to end up with misses.

 

DARREN FELLS – TE – LIONS – AVAILBLE IN 100% OF CBS LEAGUES

Fells caught two passes for 24 yards, and both went for scores. Don’t be fooled and don’t go run to pick him up…please!
