The Superstar is averaging over 7 yards a touch and is soooo Chris Johnsonesque it’s scary.  His lack of touchdowns is the only thing keeping him from fantasy insanity, but he did get one to go with his 176 yards against Seattle. The two times he’s gotten over 20 carries he has over 20 fantasy points.  And now he says he is feeling the best he has felt all season.  He’ll continue doing the good work.

Dwayne Bowe: Well, I was wrong about Mr. Bowe.  He has actually pushed the fantasy insanity envelope and is averaged over 21 fantasy points in his last 7 games and that is in non-PPR.  Ride that Dwayne train.

Matt Cassel: The KC fantasy trifecta is blowing up and Cassel is the least talented beneficiary.  I still don’t trust him with my fantasy team, but he’s worth having around.

Peyton Hillis: Every time Peyton Hillis scores a touchdown a hoodie loses its string.  So three hoodie strings mysteriously disappeared during the Browns/Panthers game.  194 yards and 3 touchdowns are going to lead a lot of teams to victory this week and beyond.

Kyle Orton: Neck Beard hasn’t been as consistent as he was early in the season, but he has picked things up in two out of the last three games. And remember that he gets Houston in week 16.  That’s a lottery ticket just waiting to be cashed.

Knowshon Moreno: Once again the Broncos got behind and abandoned the run, but Moreno once again was used heavily in the passing game with 9 targets and 6 receptions.  He’s getting into that RB 1 range now.

Michael Turner: Four of his last 5 games have been 17+ fantasy point affairs.  And his 100 yard rushing, 1 touchdown game against a tough Green Bay defense is one of those games you expect from your first round pick. He has a nice schedule to finish the season so feel good going forward.

Anquan Boldin: Take out his 32 point game in week 3 he is averaging 6 fantasy points a game.  He still throws a low double digit game in there once in a while, but he also has been shut out twice.  I would think about sitting him more often.

Stevie Johnson: He dropped the game winning touchdown to go along with 4 other drops and then went on Twitter to call out God for forsaking him.  He really should go the Brett Favre route and leak some nagging ailment instead.

Fred Jackson: This guy is a juggernaut!  He did fairly well running on the Steelers, but had a huge game receiving. He totaled 163 yards and had a touchdown. His schedule isn’t great, but I sure didn’t expect the game he had against Pittsburgh.

Mike Goodson: He had a big game totaling 136 yards and a touchdown.  It looks like his role will depend a lot on if the Panthers are in pass mode or run mode.  Knowing the Panthers D they might be in pass mode more often than not.  He looks good to go in PPR leagues, but will be hit and miss in non-PPR.

Jonathan Stewart: He rushed 12 times for 98 yards and looks like he will return to the starting role while Goodson takes over passing downs.  This game was a nice improvement over his pre-injury games.

Jay Cutler: He hasn’t lived up to my expectations this season, but yesterday’s game was where I hoped he would be living. This is his first foray into Four TD land this season, but he has had good outings now in 3 of his last 4 games and his next 3 games are @DET, NE, @MIN.  But I would look elsewhere in week 16 against the Jets.

Aaron Rodgers: His rushing ability came in handy once again for fake footballers like ourselves.  He led the Packers in rushing with 51 yards and a touchdown and added 344 yards passing and a another touchdown. He has been on a tear and he has some nice matchups on the way.

Andre Johnson: Cortland Finnegan took the brunt of a pretty bad ass beat down from AJ, but this puts AJ at risk to be suspended now that he is finally healthy!  We will know on Monday if he’ll be suspended or not.

Arian Foster: He totaled 218 yards, but snapped a streak of 5 games in a row with a touchdown. Worthless.

Maurice Jones-Drew: Against what was supposed to be a tough Giants defense the Jags pretty much ran at will.  MJD seems to be back on track and this 100 yard game was his lowest fantasy production in 5 games.  Keep him starting.

Mike Sims-Walker: He didn’t have a big game, but did have 10 targets and didn’t reinjure his ankle.  He’s back into the discussion of startability.

Jacoby Ford: He’s looking like the real deal, but this is Oakland and the real deal can be served his last meal at anytime.  He had 10 targets, but only grabbed 4, but did have over 100 yards and a touchdown.  Those missed targets weren’t all his fault and he was wide open for a TD that Gradkowski was about a day late throwing the ball.  He’s worth a shot.

Michael Vick: Even in a game where he was “contained” he still went off for 23 fantasy points.  He may top 100 fantasy points against Houston on Thursday night.

Ben Obomanu: His huge numbers were helped by Big Mike Williams being out and a blown coverage, but 159 yards and a touchdown sure do catch the eye.

Rashard Mendenhall: 150 yards and a touchdown are what you want.  Don’t lie to yourself.

Chris Johnson: If you don’t get fractional points, you got zero points from Chris Johnson.  He was taken to the shed and given a Dirty Rusty Smith.

  1. Nick says:

    @Doc: Should I look at Ford, Heap, Branch (not a fan of schedule except @buf wk16) as a replacement for Blair White or Keiland Williams…I have R Wayne and J Tamme, dont really want another Colt WR if Collies comin back…

    Also should I snag Minnesota D for next week in Buffalo? Or Colts @ Dal or San Diego v. Oak…looking for future San Diego & Colts look nice but for nxt week I like Minny…

    don’t know what to do, I lost this week startin V Jax and now am tied for 4th (ahead by points) with week 15&16 playoff/championship. I now NEED wins vs. 1st & 2nd place teams next 2 weeks and setup for playoffs too

  2. charlie batch says:

    Dwayne Bowe was human at one point in time. The problem is, he can’t remember when that was.

  3. Wilsonian says:

    0.5 PPR:

    Boss over Cooley for next week? (WAS @ NYG)

    Would you snag Ford for VJax or Buc Williams?

    If AP is out, would you pick up Gerhart for Felix, VJax or Buc Williams?

  4. CL says:


    Hedging my bets since A. Johnson is likely to be sat this week… Blair White or this Ben Obomanu character? PPR. Thanks!

  5. CL says:

    Oh, and that’s for a waiver pickup… I don’t have room for both…

  6. Howie says:

    “194 yards and 3 touchdowns are going to lead a lot of teams to victory this week and beyond” … however, combined with VJax’ three whole plays is leading me down a path to a loss and relinquishment of sole first place– that is unless Mr. Gore can manage 15 fantasy points this evening (non-PPR and TDs worth 4)…

  7. Wilsonian says:

    @Howie: I got dirt rolled this week, and had Hillis in my lineup. The only problem(s) is/are…I also played CJ, DMC, Rivers, GB defense, and Roddy White (who combined for 29 points) and I was up against Turner, Mendenhall and Foster (who combined for 90).

    It was an ass beating of epic proportions by a guy I was tied with for first place.

  8. Nick says:

    @Doc: Rather, maybe go for Obomanu for a next week start…I’m looking at a flex play of T.O. v NO, Greene @ NE, R Brown v. Cle, B White in Dallas or a pickup and drop of Keiland Williams…

  9. John K says:

    So who is the better E. Manning backup – S. Hill or M. Cassel?

  10. Wilsonian says:

    @Wilsonian: I actually have more options than that at TE.

    Boss, Olsen, Winslow, any NE TE. Would you play any of them over Cooley? I need someone who’s going to find the endzone.

    Also, 0.5 PPR…would you pick up Ford or Obomanu for Mo Morris, or should I wait to see if Best ever returns to form first before dropping Morris?

  11. fyodor says:

    Hey Doc.

    Do you think (after yesterday’s 11 points) that Celek might make a solid replacement for Zach Miller in Week 13?

  12. Joel says:

    Doc: Obomanu or James Jones next week and ROS?

  13. Jim Parkey says:

    I own TEs Dressen and Gronkowski. The following are available on the wire: Winslow, H. Miller, Celek, Watson and Daniels.

    I’m concerned Dressen will sit once Daniels is healthy. Which, if any, TEs do I drop and pick up?


  14. Joel says:

    Doc: WRs in crisis. I have Nicks, Boldin, Buc Williams, just picked up Crabtree and James Jones. Non-ppr, TD-heavy. Boldin is a waste, and I can’t see starting him in the playoffs. Trying to think creatively. My Q is: Kenny Britt is on the wire. is there any way given those wrs that I’m gonna want to start Britt in week 14, 1st week of the playoffs? HELP!

  15. Wilsonian says:

    Would you play Boss, Moeaki, A-Her, or Gronk over Keller next week?

    Also, do you see any promise to Billy Bajema? Hooeymanooie is out 4-6 weeks with an ankle injury.

  16. Chris says:

    Will Maurice Morris be getting the bulk of the carries for DET for the next few weeks? Or will Best be meddling?

  17. Doc

    Doc says:

    @Nick: I’d give Ford a shot. I don’t trust Minny. I’d go SD.

    @charlie batch: He is an alien.

    @Wilsonian: Boss. VJax looks like he’ll be out 2 weeks, but that still leaves him available for week 15/16. Tough. If you need to grab Gerhart I would probably drop VJax, but not for Ford.

    @CL: AJ wasn’t suspended thankfully.

    @Rookie Season: I’m looking at SD and SEA, but leaning Seattle with Carolina traveling cross country after a last second win.

    @Howie: Good luck! He’ll need a pretty good game for that, but he has it in him.

    @Nick: I would lean TO. Obomanu will have Williams back.

    @John K: Hill throws so much more the odds of getting a decent game are better.

    @Wilsonian: I’d keep Morris and since Smith is out next week I’d lean Boss still.

    @fyodor: Yeah.

    @Joel: Jones

    @Jim Parkey: I’d grab Celek for Gronk.

    @Joel: I wouldn’t want to risk playing Britt until you know he is healthy. Think VJax.

    @Wilsonian: I’d go with Boss. Bajema is too risky. Bradford spreads the ball out pretty well and Bajema doesn’t demand targets since he’s not great.

    @Chris: hard to know for sure, but I would keep Morris for sure. I don’t see Best making a big contribution this season.

  18. Wilsonian says:

    @Doc: Thanks for all the help Doc, and many apologies for the 8 billion questions.

    I dropped Cooley and Keller for Boss in two leagues. I already dropped Mo Morris for Gerhart. Might pick him back up if he clears waivers. Still debating on whether to drop VJax or not.

    Another question for you regarding CJ-no K (I can’t believe I have to ask this)… Would you bench him for Gerhart (if AP is out), Felix, Ford, DMC, or Buc Williams. I don’t think I can do it, but man this last week was PATHETIC.

  19. Nick says:

    @Doc: So, drop Keiland or B White for J Ford… I like B White but have R Wayne & Tamme so if I hold him, its just to keep him from the other teams…Keiland looked bad but has good matchups coming up so I’m hesitant there too…

    Team looks like this in 10 team non-ppr

    WR-Wayne, White, T.O
    RB-McCoy & Blount
    BN-Big Ben, B White, Greene, R Brown, K Williams

    Whats the move to make coming upon playoffs…but definitely need wins the last 2 weeks.

  20. MJD Took A Knee says:

    Keating or Carpenter ROS? I guess Keating would be safer

  21. Joel says:

    @MJD took a knee: I had that exact same choice today. I picked carpenter, cause Rivers usually chips in a few tds that would’ve cut those fg attempts normally, whereas Mia w/ Henne always moves the ball but has trouble scoring tds. Carpenter’s only bad game was the shutout w/Thigpen.

  22. Damion says:

    I have a short week to prepare….and I win my game Im in the fantasy playoffs. I lose, I need help to get in.

    1)Is Bowe healthy?
    2) Austin, Floyd, or M.Williams?
    3) Is it smart to sit ray rice?
    4) will mccoy be healthy?
    5)will tolbert make another start?
    6) TE: Keller, Celek, or Dressen ??
    7)what do you think of San Diego’s D this week?

  23. MJD Took A Knee says:

    @Joel: Yeah I think Keating won’t come close to 20 points again but Carpenter could. I didn’t know Henne would play again so soon too.

  24. Shaun says:

    Haha Doc awesome quote “Ride that Dwayne train.” I been riding the Hillis and Dwayne train in two leagues. Been pretty smooth.

  25. wiudavis says:

    Thanks for the laughs. I am not sure what it takes to come up with these quotes but please keep up. “every hoodie looses a string” lmao. I love this site!!!! Your fantasy advice is top notch.
