FF – Get & Forget week 7













The next edition of the FANFOOD GET & FORGET will be about the players that may be sitting there as FAs. Every year there are players that will emerge off the fantasy football waiver wire to be solid additions for a fantasy football team. Good work on the waiver wire involves knowing who is on the radar just before their stock goes through the roof after a huge game or a string of solid starts. Every Tuesday we will sift through the noise and point out some players that you should GET & the ones you can FORGET.


Here are ALL the 2013 FANFOOD GET & FORGETs

Lets get to it!

Week 6 Injury Recap:

The NFL was a triage station this weekend. There were many notable names leaving games with injuries on Sunday so let’s get right to it and see where we stand after the carnage.

DeMarco Murray left the Sunday night game with a left knee sprain after totaling 50 yards on nine touches including a touchdown. There are a wide range of scenarios for a MCL sprain depending on the severity, so speculation would be premature right now. With Lance Dunbar out with a hamstring injury, rookie Joseph Randle saw the bulk of the touches after Murray left and scored a touchdown. If Dunbar is able to go he would most likely form a committee with Randle.

Jimmy Graham has what looked to be a left ankle or foot injury, but there hasn’t been any official update on his status yet. He had it taped up and was cleared to return, but came back out for good after a few plays. With a bye next week he’ll have extra time to heal.

Larry Fitzgerald’s latest hamstring injury is to his right leg, while his earlier injury was to his left hamstring. Cardinals’ beat writer Kent Somers reported that Fitzgerald could “barely bend over” after the game. In Week 7 the Cardinals have a fast turnaround to play a Thursday night game so Fitzgerald may have a tough time getting ready for that matchup. Their bye comes in Week 9.

Cecil Shorts landed on his shoulder early in the Denver game and couldn’t return. At first the injury was called a shoulder sprain, but now ESPN’s Josina Anderson says the Jaguars are worried that he “could have fractured a rib closer towards the sternum.” We’ll know more after a MRI on Monday.

Randall Cobb took a helmet to the knee after a 15-yard reception that knocked him from the game. He was seen on the sidelines on crutches afterward, but all reports have been positive to it not being a long-term injury. We should know more on Monday as to the extent.

James Jones was unable to return to the game after a lower leg injury and was seen with a full leg brace on the sideline. Initial fears were of a knee injury, but he was later seen with ice on his shin. The Packers feel like they dodged a bullet, but we’ll know more Monday.

Matt Schaub had his ankle/leg rolled up on a sack by Chris Long. The close up image didn’t look good, but we are still waiting on tests to know the extent of the damage. T.J. Yates is next in line, but showed that he wasn’t up to the task this week.

Danny Amendola was hit hard on an end-around and looked to immediately be knocked unconscious. This has the look of an injury that won’t be a quick turnaround to playing again, but that of course is speculation.

Mike Goodson injured his knee in the fourth quarter against the Steelers. The initial rumblings aren’t sounding good. Beat writer Manish Meta quotes a person close to Goodson saying, “it doesn’t look good.” This would help Bilal Powell continue to see work in the passing game, which he needs, to have any upside.

Joique Bell‘s postgame X-rays on his ribs didn’t show any fractures and he was seen joking around with teammates after the game. He told the Detroit News, “It just popped out. I’ll just take it day by day, do the proper rehab for it and try to get back as soon as possible.”

Thad Lewis who did an admirable, if not great job in a bad situation for the Bills, had X-rays on his foot come back negative. They will need to do an MRI to see if there is any damage to the ligaments, so he’s not out of the woods yet. The Bills flew in Matt Flynn just in case.

Other Injury Notes:

Calvin Johnson played limited snaps against the Browns on Sunday and came out of the game no worse for the wear. . . . Calais Campbell suffered a scary neck injury, was carted off the field and was taken to the hospital, but according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter doctors say he will be “sore, but ok”. . . . Demarcus Ware left the Sunday night game with a strained right quadriceps injury and was able to walk off on his own power, but he did not return. . . . Shutdown corner Aqib Talib has been diagnosed with a strained hip flexor. All indications at the moment point to the injury not being serious. . . . Seahawks DE Chris Clemons hyperextended his elbow in the win over Tennessee. It appears there is no long-term damage, but he may miss next week. . . . Patriots’ tackling machine Jerod Mayo left Sunday’s game after hurting his shoulder. He left the stadium with his arm in a sling, but there is no word on the extent of the damage. . . . Jets’ DB Kyle Wilson left the Steelers game with a head injury. They’ll need all hands on deck after springing leaks lately in the secondary.

Here are some free agents that we think you should GET and ones you need to FORGET heading into week 7 of the season, followed by a recipe for Roasted Poblano Meatloaf

GET Joseph Randle

from CBSsports: Cowboys rookie running back Joseph Randle has the chance to be the most popular player off the waiver wire this season. He could be a must-start Fantasy option for the next four weeks. DeMarco Murray sprained his MCL in his left knee Sunday night against the Redskins, and hopefully he won’t be out long. But if he does miss an extended period of time you then Randle could be the starter in Dallas with some great matchups ahead. The Cowboys face some of the worst run defenses over the next four games before their bye in Week 11 with matchups against Philadelphia, Detroit, Minnesota and New Orleans. If Randle starts those games then Fantasy owners could potentially be starting him across the board, and you can pencil him as the No. 1 option for Week 7 with Murray almost certainly out.
from rotoworld: DeMarco Murray sprained his left MCL in Sunday night’s win over the Redskins. We don’t have a timetable yet, but we know he’s out for Week 7 and we know this is typically a 2-4 week injury. The reason Randle wasn’t more widely owned as a handcuff is two-fold. First of all, he’s not nearly as talented as guys like Ben Tate, Bryce Brown, Christine Michael, Bernard Pierce etc. Second of all, he was running behind Lance Dunbar (out, hamstring) for backup duties before Dunbar’s injury. That said, Randle is looking at a lot of touches in a high-powered offense against a bad Eagles defense in Week 7. And with Murray’s extremely lengthy injury history, this might not be his only stint as the starter. Plug-n-play away.
from dynastysportsempire: DeMarco Murray sadly, but not surprisingly got injured this week, and although he was listed as third on the depth chart, Randle stepped in and filled the void very well. With DeMarco likely out, Randle faces the flimsy Philadelphia Eagles. I’ve liked Randle, and in the few leagues I’ve owned DeMarco in I have also had Randle biding his time on my bench. If he is out there, he is worth a pickup even if it’s just for this week. It will take considerable FAAB investment, but should pay off nicely.

FANFOOD SAYS: Get in ALL leagues for this week atleast

FORGET Lance Dunbar

from Zach Greubel – Gridiron Experts Obviously we don’t know the full extent of DeMarco Murray’s injury, but he’s expected to be out at least for Week 7. Lance Dunbar, assuming his hamstring is good to go, should see the majority of carries as the Cowboys’ No. 2 running back. If Murray misses an extended period of time, Dunbar could be a nice steal off the waiver wire and would be in the Top 5 in my list.
from rotoworld: Jerry Jones confirmed RB Lance Dunbar (hamstring) is not expected to play in Sunday’s Week 7 game against the Eagles. This locks in Joseph Randle to a serious workload Sunday. The Cowboys will be without their starter DeMarco Murray (hamstring) and his early-season backup, Dunbar.

 FANFOOD SAYS: FORGET in ALL leagues as he is out this week


GET Brandon Jabobs

from rotoworld: Brandon Jacobs (hamstring) is expected to practice Thursday. The Giants are on an exceptionally long week as they played the Thursday game in Week 6 and get the Monday night game in Week 7. Jacobs tweaked his hammy late in his fluky breakout against the Bears, but it sounds like he’ll be fine. With the Giants backfield completely ravaged by injury, Jacobs is a good bet for 10-14 carries against the Vikings
from Nick Raducanu – FantasyTrade411: I can’t believe I’m writing about Brandon Jacobs as a good waiver wire target in 2013 (will it be Larry Johnson next week?), but here we are. Jacobs did face a depleted Bears line last week, but it’s also hard to ignore his 4.8 yards per carry and two touchdowns on 22 carries (which was tied for fourth in the league this week). I’m still dubious because of who we’re talking about here, but running backs have been tough to come by this season and Jacobs has a NICE schedule coming up (Minnesota, Philadelphia, Oakland, Green Bay, Dallas, Washington). I know it sounds crazy, but Jacobs could end up being a great add if David Wilson stays out for a while (or all season).
from Sean Morris – Bruno Boys: This week is the week of the waiver wire running back. Brandon Jacob’s TNF renaissance was impressive to say the least. In a game where the entire New York offense struggled, Jacobs thrived, pounding his way to 114 total yards and two touchdowns. He looked great and will be a popular add this week but Andre Brown, who could return as early as Week 10, may be an even better long term add.

 FANFOOD SAYS: GET in ALL leagues for the next few weeks

FORGET Jeff Cumberland

from rotoworld: Jeff Cumberland was playing ahead of Kellen Winslow even before Winslow’s four-game suspension. Now he’ll be an every-down player. That’s intriguing, but Cumberland is really “just a guy.” He’s a 6’4/260 lumbering body that went undrafted out of Illinois in 2010 and came into this year with 32 career catches. Cumberland’s weekly ceiling is 3-4 catches and 35-50 yards.
rom fp911: Well, I guess we all know how starting TE Kellen Winslow’s crackling knees held up thus far, eh? With Winslow suspended for four games for violating the league’s PED policy, Cumberland takes over the starting gig and all things considered, he’s an interesting option.

FANFOOD SAYS: FORGET in ALL leagues as we cannot trust the JET Offenseive players


GET Harry Douglas

from Raphael Rabe – RotoBaller: He may not be the athletic freak that Julio Jones is, but opportunity is 90% of the battle in the NFL and Harry Douglas just saw a boatload of it heading his way when his teammate snapped a screw in his surgically-repaired foot last week. We don’t think you necessarily need to go breaking the bank on the possession-style receiver to claim him off the waiver wire, but Atlanta is clearly a pass-heavy offense that will rely on someone to step up, and with Roddy White still hobbled, Harry Douglas is most likely going to be Matt Ryan’s favorite new target monster.
from CBSsports: The Falcons could be without Roddy White (hamstring, ankle) in Week 7, which would elevate Douglas to No. 1 on the depth chart. He has yet to score this season, but he does have two games with at least six Fantasy points. He also has seen at least six targets in three of five games, but his best production lies in front of him for the rest of the season.
from rotoworld: By now, everyone knows that Julio Jones (foot) is out for the season and Roddy White (hamstring, ankle) is questionable for Week 7 at best. Harry Douglas is a mediocre slot receiver, but he’s being thrust into the No. 1 wideout gig. We can be certain that the Falcons did some things during the bye week to pull him up to speed in his new gig and designed some things to play to his strengths. They know Tony Gonzalez is going to see constant double teams. It’s also worth noting that Douglas has been targeted in the end zone three times and at the 1-yard line twice already this season. He was already a red-zone target before the injuries struck.

 FANFOOD SAYS: GET ALL leagues if he is available

FORGET Kendall Wright

from numerfire: Just above of Brandon Lafell, we’ll play the targets game with Kendall Wright here as well. He’s had three straight weeks of eight targets, and he’s coming down with 2/3rds of them, with more than a few plays going for 20+ yards. In a PPR friendly league, you’ll take 10 points every week out of your WR4 and that’s exactly what he’ll give you. Unlike Dobson, he’s got a much weaker QB and a much worse offense around him; he does however have the advantage of competing for targets alongside the likes of Nate Washington and Kenny Britt instead of Kenbrell Thompkins and Julian Edelman.
from rotoworld: Kendall Wright caught five passes for 69 yards in Tennessee’s Week 6 loss to the Seahawks. Wright also had a 25-yard rush on a fumble recovery, but it was overturned on review. Ryan Fitzpatrick’s most-targeted receiver this afternoon, Wright has now caught at least five passes in five straight games. He’s the only consistent receiver in Tennessee’s offense, but averaging just 55.8 yards, he’s a low-upside WR3

 FANFOOD SAYS: Forget in 10/12 team leagues, ADD in 14+team and leagues with DEEP bench.


GET Scott Chandler

from CBSsports: Chandler caught his second touchdown in the past four games against the Bengals in Week 6 and faces a Dolphins defense in Week 7 that allows the second-most Fantasy points to opposing tight ends.
from rotoworld: Scott Chandler caught two passes for 47 yards and one touchdown in Week 6 against the Bengals. Chandler was targeted four times by Thad Lewis. He beat busted coverage in the fourth quarter for a 22-yard touchdown. Chandler is a middling TE2

FANFOOD SAYS: GET as an injury/bye week replacement in 12/14 – team leagues.

FORGET Joseph Fauria

from CBSsports: In touchdown-only leagues, adding Fauria is a must, but owners in other formats can probably do better. Until Fauria starts to produce as more than just a red-zone threat he’s not going to be a consistent Fantasy option. He scored three touchdowns at Cleveland in Week 6 and had three catches for 34 yards. He has yet to top three catches or three targets in a game this season. He does have three games with touchdowns this year, but in the three games he didn’t score he had no catches. We like his upside and he’s a big target at 6-foot-7. But red-zone threats are hard to predict, and you don’t want to start him on the game where he doesn’t score. His Week 7 matchup against the Bengals isn’t terrible because Cincinnati has allowed three tight ends to score this season
from thefakefootball: Joseph Fauria caught all three of his targets on Sunday for touchdowns. He only has 4 other receptions on the season, two of which were also touchdowns. Fauria is a huge target and that’s why the Lions utilize him so much around the goal line, but it’s hard to trust a player who has three zero-point games in six weeks.
from topteamfantasy.com: Joseph Fauria (Detroit Lions, TE – 0.1%): Fauria has put up some highlight reel touchdowns (and dance moves) this season, but his statistics are unsustainable. He has 7 catches for 5 touchdowns on 9 targets. He was only targeted 3 times in week 6, yet pulled down each target for a touchdown. If you are in a super deep league and can take the chance on Fauria’s total boom or bust results (he has put up a goose egg in 3 games and caught at least 1 touchdown in the other 3) then he is worth adding, but in general he is entirely worth avoiding. Fauria will continue to be relevant in the red zone, but he is not targeted by Stafford, or even in the game that often, when the Lions are anywhere but close to the end zone. This highly limits Fauria’s upside and it is not likely to change in the future as Brandon Pettigrew is a solid tight end blocking Fauria’s path to more looks.

FANFOOD SAYS: FORGET and don’t believe the hype.

DST Streamer week 7:

vs  BUF

from fantasyalarm:
We love to use teams at home coming out of a bye. It’s a bonus that the Dolphins get to face a Bills team that has hit rock bottom at quarterback. With E.J. Manuel (knee) out indefinitely and Kevin Kolb (concussion) on injured reserve, they’re going to have to start Thad Lewis (day to day, foot) or newly signed Matt Flynn. C.J. Spiller (ankle) is playing limited snaps and is clearly less than 100 percent. It’s a dream scenario for Cameron Wake and friends, who have forced nine turnovers and recorded 13 sacks through five games.
from juanelway: Matt Flynn? Do you need another reason? The Dolphins D is pretty darn good and the Bills offense may not be able to do a thing against them. Coming off the bye and playing at home and we have a Yahtzee!

FANFOOD SAYS: Go out and GET them if you are dreaming of streaming DSTs.

but don’t just take our word for it, see what other’s have to say.

Roasted Poblano Meatloaf

While meatloaf is quintessentially American, poblano peppers hail from Puebla, Mexico. Blending the two cultures creates a meatloaf with a delectably smoky flavor that will spice up your run-of-the-day dinner.


For the Sauce:
1 8-ounce can tomato sauce
1/4 cup grated yellow onion
3 tablespoons brown sugar
2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
4 teaspoons vinegar
1 tablespoon soy sauce
1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes

For the Meatloaf:

2 pounds ground beef
4 poblano peppers, roasted, skin removed, diced
1 8-ounce can tomato sauce
1/2 cup oatmeal
2 large eggs, lightly beaten
1 onion, finely diced
1 rib celery, finely diced
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 tablespoons worcestershire sauce
2 teaspoons kosher salt
1 teaspoon dried oregano
1 teaspoon ground black pepper



To make the sauce: mix all ingredients in a small saucepan and heat gently. Do not bring to a boil. Remove from the heat and cool.

To make the meatloaf, preheat the oven to 325F. Grease a 13×9 inch casserole dish.

Get your hands dirty and combine all the meatloaf ingredients in a large bowl. Shape into a loaf in the prepared baking dish.

Pour half of the sauce along the top center of the loaf. Cover with foil and bake for 45 minutes.

Drain the grease carefully, add the remaining sauce to the top center and place back in the oven uncovered for another 30 minutes. Remove and let sit for 10 minutes before serving.
