Ok guys, we had some technical difficulties in doing our podcast this week but we decide to give you guys some information about waiver wire pickups for week 10.. Quick reminder we have 4 team on a Bye, BALT, KC, OAK, and PHILLY so lets get started…….
Anthony—– Josh McCown– qb rating of 96.1 1980 pas yds, 13/7 td to int, 70 rush yds with 3 more tds….. He’ s facing a Tampa Bay team that allowed Drew Brees to complete 81% of his passes while only sacking him once. McCown has been playing extemely well, last week against buffalo he completed pass to 6 different WR, Robby Anderson and Jermaine Kearse leading the way. Its a good matchup!
Chase—– Blake Bortles (PIC)– Qb Rating of 86.4, 1657 pass yds, 10/5 td to int, 157 rush yds. Hes facing a Charger team that was on a bye week, but it seems Jacksonville is loosening the reins on this offense and Bortles is the benefactor. The Chargers last game they held the vaunted Patriots offense to 21 points, but New England has become a pass heavy offense, if Jacksonville can get the run game going that help Bortles have a big day, lots of play-action pass.
Tom—– Ryan Fitzpatrick– Qb Rating of 95.7, 358 pass yds, 4/2 td to int, 40 rush yds. Fitzpatrick is taking over the Tamba Bay offense for a “few weeks” while Jameis Winston recovers from an injury. This week however Fitzpatrick will be facing a Jets defense that allowed Tyrod Taylor to complete nearly 75% of his throw for 285 yds and 2 tds, yes some of that came in garbage time but those stats still count. In this game however, Mike Evans will be suspended, for his brutal blindside hit of Marshon Lattimore last week—- but this offense still has plenty of firepower– Desean Jackson, Chris Godwin, C. Brate, Oj Howard, Martin.
Anthony—– Alfred Morris/ Darren McFadden– With The Zeke Elliott case, going, and going and going. Im not sure when it will ever end, but if he gets suspended this year, both of these guys have value running behind that offensive line.
Chase—– Rex Burkhead/ DeVontae Booker– Both are speculative adds. Burkhead had a bye week to get healthy. He is another one of those Patriots back that does everything well, last game against the Chargers he gathered 15.3 ppr points int the matc-hup. Booker has caught the attention of the coaches in Denv. Last week he lead team in rush yds and also contributed in pass game, hes got more wiggle than Jamaal Charles at this point, and cj anderson is not showing much.
Tom—– Thomas Rawls/ Kenyan Drake– Rawls is the only healthy running back in Sea! Literally the “Last Man Standing”. He came n the game against a tough Washington front seven and averaged 4.2 ypc and caught a few passes. In Drake, we have a true time share backfield. Drake outproduced Williams as far as yardage, but Williams got the passing td. Going forward drake has the ability to contribute both on the ground as well as in the passing phase.
Anthony—– Robby Anderson(PIC)– Anderson and McCown have developed some chemistry between them. Anderson has scored in 3 straight weeks and gets the favorable match-up with the Tamba Bay Bucs.
Chase—– Robert Woods– Woods continues to be Goff’s favorite target week in and week out. All of the Rams WR have a great match-up versus Hou. Goff has been able to spread the ball around and keep all the WR happy with their contributions. Expect another good day from the Rams offense.
Tom—– Marquise Goodwin– With Pierre Garcon going on the IR, that opens up about 15 targets a game. Goodwin is a smaller speedster type of player. With addition targets heading his way he can be a poor mans Brandin Cooks. In his last game, Goodwin had a stat line of 8 targets catching 2 of them for 68 yds, but with his speed there s always the possibility of a long touchdown.
Anthony—– Tyler Kroft– Half of the Bengals yardage last week, came from the 2 catches that Kroft made. Kroft is catching 86 % percent of passes thrown his way only missing on 4 for the season. He has been involved in this offense, ever since Tyler Eifert went down with injury.
Chase—– Julius Thomas– Thomas has always had the freakish athletic ability, but has had problems harnessing it and applying it to the football field. In the most recent game, however Julius Thomas reminded us of how good he really is. He posted a stat line of 8 target catching 6 for 84 and a touchdown. If Cutler keeps looking towards Thomas I can see big things happening for this duo.
Tom—– Greg Olsen(PIC)– Currently Olsen is on the shelf with an foot injury, but hes expected to play in week 12, just in time for fantasy football playoffs. This is a speculative add, he is a difference maker in this offense. For his career he averages 125 targets 80 catches and 1062 yds and 5 td for a full season. At 30 % of those numbers (week 12-16 playoffs), we get a tight end that gets 38 targets, 24 catches for 319 yds and a few td possibilities. That can be a difference maker in your march to a Championship!!!!!
