FF – Get & Forget week 8














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 some free agents that we think you should GET and ones you need to FORGET heading into week 8 of the season, followed by a recipe for Apple Enchiladas




Mike James


from davidgonos:
It’s only so often that a starting RB comes open on the free agent market so James is going to be on top of most priority lists. Tampa’s suspect blocking leaves him with a fairly low ceiling – if Doug Martin wasn’t producing let’s not expect James to give start-worthy numbers every week – but by projected volume alone he’s got to be on your roster.
The schedule isn’t friendly either, with Carolina, Seattle and Miami on deck, there might be little running room for Mr. Mike James. That is a difficult schedule to get thrown into. Then Buffalo, Carolina and San Francisco down the stretch is just as tough.
from thefakefootball:
The Buccaneers’ new starting running back is a guy named Mike James. No, the shoot-first backup point guard from the Chicago Bulls didn’t trump LeBron’s quest to play in the NFL. This is a different Mike James. He rushed for 45 yards on 14 carries and caught all three of his targets for 8 yards on Sunday. Those numbers don’t equate to good per-touch averages, but James will have value going forward, regardless. Meanwhile, the Bucs signed Bobby Rainey to play behind James. 




Peyton Hillis


from rotoworld:
Peyton Hillis admitted to having “jello legs” on Monday night.
Just a week ago, Hillis was at home on his ranch in Tennessee and not even working out. On Monday, he touched the ball 23 times on 48 snaps and produced 81 of the ugliest yards you’ll ever see. Hillis ran around the field like an elephant, unable to even move his hips and just plowing into defenders. He figures to be in a little better shape by Sunday’s game against the Eagles, but Brandon Jacobs (hamstring) could be back.
from CBSsports:
Signed five days earlier, Giants running back Peyton Hillis got 23 touches in the win over the Vikings. Hillis ran 18 times for 36 yards, including a 1-yard touchdown plunge in the third quarter.
Hillis excelled as an outlet for Eli Manning, catching five of six targets for 45 yards and breaking several tackles along the way. Hillis got five more touches than rookie Michael Cox and could have another prominent role in Week 8 at the Eagles, especially if Brandon Jacobs (hamstring) and David Wilson (neck) remain sidelined.


FANFOOD SAYS: Forget in 10/12 team leagues, consider in deep leagues.




Jordan Reed


from davidgonos:
Washington hoped that Reed would develop into a replacement for Fred Davis over time, it just seems that the University of Florida product is accelerating the timeline. He was on the radar all along, but, a 9 catch 134 yard effort in Week 7 makes him impossible to ignore.
He comes out of that contest banged up a bit, but, even if he misses Week 8, Reed has solid long term value. His snap count has risen steadily over the last few weeks and the Washington TE job seems to belong to him. On a team that doesn’t boast a strong receiving threat outside of Pierre Garcon that should mean plenty of targets on a weekly basis.
from The Washington Post:
Fred Davis, who finished the game with one catch on two targets, wasn’t targeted after the third quarter and played only five snaps in the second half. Davis blew several assignments, according to multiple people with knowledge of the situation, and it’s believed that those errors are what prompted Shanahan to go away from him.




Kyle Rudolph


from rotoworld:
Kyle Rudolph caught three passes for 27 yards in Week 7 against the Giants. Rudolph was targeted on nine of Josh Freeman’s 53 throws and was the intended receiver on Freeman’s lone interception in the red zone. It was careless throw by Freeman on a play where he just heaved it into the air as he was being taken to the ground by Shaun Rogers. Rudolph remains a mid- to low-TE2.
from CBSsports:
After catching nine passes for 97 yards and a touchdown in Week 6, Kyle Rudolph was held to three grabs for 27 yards against the Giants. Rudolph was targeted nine times by Josh Freeman, but many throws were uncatchable.
Rudolph plays the Packers in Week 8.


FANFOOD SAYS: Forget in ALL leagues





Chris Ivory


from rotoworld:
The Jets featured Chris Ivory in their Week 7 win over the Patriots, as he took the ball 34 times for 104 yards.
Ivory lost two yards on his lone reception. We knew Ivory was ticketed for a bigger role in the absence of Mike Goodson (ACL, injured reserve) but had no idea he’d send Bilal Powell to the bench. Ivory out-touched the Jets’ former No. 1 running back 35-3. Although he averaged just 3.1 yards per carry, Ivory earned the work, grinding out tough carry after tough carry.
from davidgonos:
The Bengals are a horrible upcoming matchup, but Ivory took hold of the Jets’ backfield against the Pats this week.
from CBSsports:
Jets coach Rex Ryan said after the game he chose to go with Chris Ivory over Bilal Powell because Ivory had the hotter hand. “Initially, maybe during the week, we had to see where [Powell] was,” Ryan said. “But Ivory was running extremely hard. We thought it was a good matchup for us and that’s why we rode him.” Powell had 6 yards on three carries. Ivory had 104 yards on 34 carries along with a catch for minus-2 yards.


FANFOOD SAYS: GET in ALL leagues as depth


Micheal Cox


from rotoworld:
Michael Cox rushed for 23 yards on 11 carries in Monday night’s Week 7 win over the Vikings. Cox caught two passes for one yard. Peyton Hillis got the start in the Giants’ backfield, but Cox received the first carry on the second play and rushed six times total for 22 yards on the opening drive. He was a non-factor thereafter. Cox dances way too much and doesn’t get up field. He has a lot of work to do as a runner. Cox likely won’t be a factor in the backfield again this season. Brandon Jacobs (hamstring) will look to return next week against the Eagles. Even if he can’t, Hillis will see the bulk of the action.
from CBSsports:
Giants rookie running back Michael Cox got his first 11 carries of the season in the win over Minnesota. He gained 23 yards and caught two passes for 1 yard. Cox, who shared backfield duties with Peyton Hillis, visits the Eagles in Week 8.






Roy Helu


from rotoworld:
The Redskins’ Week 7 gameplan called for more of the “turbo” package. It’s their hurry-up package and it’s notable because Roy Helu is the every-down back in that set. The Redskins were especially effective in it against the Bears Sunday, leading to 12 touches for 46 yards and three touchdowns for Helu. There’s not a running back controversy here, but Helu has earned a bigger role (12.3 touches per game over the last three weeks) with his impressive size/speed skill set. Alfred Morris is only an early-down back in base packages. Helu will be a flex option at Denver in Week 8.
from davidgonos:
Last season, the Shanahanigans disappeared, but the coach didn’t have a healthy Roy Helu. Helu has 5 scores in his last 4 games.
from CBSsports:
Redskins running back Roy Helu saw eight fewer carries and 54 fewer rushing yards than did starter Alfred Morris in the Week 7 home win over Chicago. But while Morris did not score in the game, Helu crossed the goal line a career-high three times. Helu scored on a 14-yard run in the second quarter to make it 10-10 at the time. He scored on a 3-yard run in the third quarter and won the game with the go-ahead 3-yard TD run in the fourth with less than a minute to play. In the end, Helu rushed 11 times for 41 yards and the three scores. He also caught a pass for 5 yards and saw two targets. He has four rushing touchdowns on the year and all four have come in the last three games. The Redskins play at Denver Week 8.





Denarius Moore


from rotoworld:
Denarius Moore caught five passes for 82 yards and a touchdown in Oakland’s Week 6 loss to the Chiefs.
He corralled only 5-of-10 targets, but it was more the fault of under siege QB Terrelle Pryor. Moore made the play of the day for the Raiders, catching a quick slant in stride before accelerating 37 yards to the house for Oakland’s lone touchdown in the second quarter. Moore zoomed through traffic on his fourth score of the season. Moore has now cleared 66 yards in four straight games, and has re-emerged as a reliable WR3 with Pryor under center. He’s worth an add coming out of the Raiders’ bye week if he remains unowned in your 10-12 team league.
from CBSsports:
Raiders wide receiver Denarius Moore comes off his team’s Week 7 bye riding a two-game scoring streak. Moore has scored in three straight games just once in his career, but he will look to accomplish the feat a second time Week 8 vs. Pittsburgh. Moore is averaging 89 receiving yards and has three touchdowns in his last four games. He’s also averaging 13 Fantasy points per week in that span. The Steelers, however, present a potential road block for Moore to continue his hot streak. Through six games against Pittsburgh, wide receivers average 16 Fantasy points per week, which is the fifth-lowest average. Receivers also average just 136.5 receiving yards and have totaled three touchdowns against Pittsburgh. No. 1 receivers have had their issues with the Pittsburgh secondary. Bengals receiver A.J. Green had just six catches for 41 yards Week 2, Bears receiver Brandon Marshall had five catches for 52 yards Week 3 and Ravens receiver Torrey Smith had three catches for 61 yards Week 7. None of these elite receivers scored against Pittsburgh. Moore has without a doubt earned his place on your Fantasy roster and has developed into a pretty trustworthy option since he’s the best option in the Raiders’ passing game. However, given the Steelers’ strong track record against receivers this season, it might be best to treat Moore as a low-end No. 2/high-end No. 3 Fantasy receiver Week 8.

DST Streamer week 7:



at MIN



from thefakefootball:
The Packers’ defense, available in 30 percent of leagues — a shockingly low number — get their crack at the Josh Freeman Experiment this Sunday, a week after Freeman looked as bad as a professional signal caller can possibly look against the Giants.It doesn’t matter that the Packers’ defense has been decimated by injuries, or that they allowed an average of 27.3 points in the first three weeks of the season. They’ve somehow righted their defensive ship, giving up just 13 points per game over their last three. Minnesota, meanwhile, gave up 12 fantasy points to a Giants’ defense that had scored a combined six fantasy points over their first six games. That may very well be the most jaw-dropping stat of the year. Freeman was offensively bad, completing 20 of 53 passes for 190 yards, Vikings pass catchers couldn’t get open, and Adrian Peterson was swallowed by nonstop eight and nine-man fronts. Probably I won’t have Green Bay ranked as high as some this week, mostly because I think it’s terribly unfair to assume Freeman will play this badly with more preparation and familiarity with Minnesota’s offense. The Packers-Vikings tilt also has the makings of a blowout, and despite the likelihood of a few turnovers from Freeman and company, Green Bay’s vulnerable secondary (they’re eighth worst against the pass) knocks them down a peg or two. Green Bay is still a locked-and-loaded top-10 option this week. Like we’ve always done with Blaine Gabbert, let Freeman wash over you.
from totalpackers:
Jerron McMillian was supposed to start at safety at some point. Now he can’t even get on the field. McMillian was awful early in the season while Morgan Burnett was out. Against Cleveland — and you probably didn’t notice — McMillian barely played. He played just one defensive snap. The Packers went to rookie Micah Hyde, who’s played well, in the dime. That was McMillian’s role. They also used undrafted free agent Chris Banjo ahead of McMillian. Banjo actually took snaps away from the other starting safety, M.D. Jennings. I don’t know where they find these guys, but it’s clear McMillian has no role on this team right now. Brad Jones missed his second consecutive game due to injury. Jones has been good enough, but his replacement, Jamari Lattimore, killed it on Sunday. Lattimore was impressive in his first start. He was a badass in his second. Lattimore had a team-leading 12 tackles, a sack and he knocked down a pass. Dude makes plays. Reminiscent of when Desmond Bishop replaced Nick Barnett. How can you not have Davon House on the field? First pick on Sunday. Three tackles. Knocked down three passes. I don’t know what happens when Casey Hayward comes back, but Tramon Williams should probably be looking over his shoulder.

Apple Enchiladas with Dulce de Leche


Forget apple pie and try an Apple Enchilada with Dulce de Leche. Soft flour tortillas are drizzled with dulce de leche, topped with warm cinnamon apple compote, and wrapped up in ooey gooey perfection.


1/2 tablespoon butter
3 cups diced apple, skin and core removed
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 tablespoon vanilla extract
1 teaspoon corn starch
2 tablespoons water
2 flour tortillas
2 tablespoons duce de leche


Preheat oven to 350F.
In a saucepan on medium-high heat melt butter. Once it bubbles, add apples. Stir apples to evenly coat.
Add cinnamon, vanilla, corn starch, and water. Mix until corn starch dissolves.

Lower burner to low-medium heat, cover saucepan and allow mixture to simmer for 10 minutes, until apples are softened and sauce has thickened. Remove pan from burner.

With burner on low heat, place one tortilla over the flame. Wait 10 seconds and flip. After another 10 seconds remove from burner. Repeat with remaining tortilla.

Drizzle 1 tablespoon of dulce de leche on each tortilla.

Fill each tortilla with a third of apple mixture.

Roll tortillas and place, seam side down, into an oven safe baking dish. Top enchiladas with remaining third of apple mixture.

Bake enchiladas for 15 minutes, or until the tips of the tortillas are golden and the dulce de leche bubbles.

Enjoy alone or with a scoop of coconut ice cream.
