FF – Get & Forget week 9














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 8 was a fairly quiet one on the injury front, but there are still some key players that need to be discussed to help owners figure out what to do as waivers approach. Due to the inevitable injuries that plague this game we love, some owners are wondering whether this is a lost season, while others are feeling good about where they currently stand. Let’s get into the injuries that could affect whether or not you need to be active on waivers this week, or if you can afford to pass on players that could be available.


Robert Griffin III

Strained Knee – No further information was given on what structures were involved with his knee injury.

Griffin was tackled during the 2nd half yesterday which caused him to land awkwardly on his knee as he was being tackled. He was removed from the game, examined by the medical staff, and although he was deemed ok to come back into the game, Washington held him out and put in Kirk Cousins to finish the game.

Bottom Line – Coach Shanahan deemed that taking RGIII out of the game yesterday was purely precautionary and that RGIII will be fine moving forward. I wouldn’t suggest anything otherwise unless he shows up on the injury report and is limited during practice this week. RGIII has had a very inconsistent season so far, which has frustrated many owners, but the current injury shouldn’t be the reason not to start him.


Michael Vick

Strained Hamstring – The hamstring muscle is the primary muscle in the back of the thigh responsible for bending the knee and extending the hip. When it relates to sports, it’s a very important muscle in aiding to accelerate/decelerate the lower body to allow proper running and cutting.

Vick states that he felt a pop when he re-aggravated his hamstring strain against the Giants in the 1st quarter. He will be undergoing an MRI and his status will be updated when that information is available.

Bottom Line – Expect the Eagles to be very conservative the 2nd time around with Vick’s hamstring, as clearly he was not ready to return at the current level that he was at. Whenever a player hears a pop, they are usually dealing with a more severe grade strain, potentially grade 2 or grade 3 strains that can require around 6-8 weeks to heal. Higher grade strains take a longer time to heal, and because this is a re-aggravation, I wouldn’t be surprised if Vick was less than 100% the rest of the year even when he does return. The Eagles could be in trouble if Nick Foles isn’t cleared in time to start this Sunday against the Raiders as Matt Barkley has not shown anything that resembles a serviceable NFL quarterback. Those expecting Vick to return to the form we saw earlier in the season will most likely be disappointed as it may be time to look elsewhere.


Julius Thomas

Ankle Sprain – The ligaments/tendons/muscles on either the outside or inside of the ankle get overstretched which causes pain/swelling.

Thomas left the game in the 3rd quarter against the Redskins and was unable to return. He underwent an MRI which was negative for a high ankle sprain.

Bottom Line – It’s a good sign that Thomas avoided a high ankle sprain, but the fact that he’s battled ankle issues in the past might make this a little more complicated issue to return from. Looks for updates on how Thomas progresses throughout the week with Jacob Tamme and Joel Dreesen playing in his absence. Thomas has been a favorite target for Peyton Manning so far this season, but even if he does’t play, Manning will make do with whoever is at TE.


Ryan Broyles

Ruptured Achilles – The Achilles’ tendon is the main tendon that connects your calf muscle to your heel bone. It’s primary function is to help distribute force to the bone from the muscle and also to help with pushing off the foot.

Broyles needed to be helped off the field after suffering the injury against the Cowboys in the first half. He was unable to put any weight on his leg after the injury.

Bottom Line – This is the 3rd year in a row that Broyles season has ended because of an injury. Broyles has had an ACL reconstruction in each knee, and now an upcoming Achilles repair. It’s a tough break for a player who has the potential to become a difference maker but just can’t stay on the field long enough to show his talent. It’ll be interesting to see how he comes back from this injury but for now, he’s droppable in all leagues. Kris Durham should remain a low-end fantasy option as Matthew Stafford has grown more confident in targeting him more as the season as progressed. Nate Burleson reportedly should return to the lineup following the team’s Week 10 BYE.


Brandon Gibson

Ruptured Patellar Tendon – The patellar tendon is the main tendon that comes from the Quadriceps muscle on the front of your thigh that attaches to the lower leg/shin. The main function of the patellar tendon is to distribute forces from the quadricep muscle to the bone to allow for motion of the leg. Rupture of this tendon causes complete failure of the quadricep to help straighten the leg and also to accept weight in the leg when putting all the weight on it.

Gibson suffered the patellar tendon rupture in the 1st quarter after scoring a touchdown. He had to be carted off the field and was diagnosed shortly thereafter.

Bottom Line – It’s a tough loss for the Dolphins as Gibson was putting together a solid season up to this point. Rehabilitation for patellar tendon ruptures are long and strenuous, but most are able to return to their prior level of function. Gibson and the medical team will likely wait for the swelling to go down before having the surgery performed. Depending on when the surgery is, he should be ready for training camp, although he might be limited early on. Mike Wallace, Charles Clay, and Brian Hartline should see a slight uptick in targets moving forward.

Whether you’re in a battle for first place or simply scrapping to stay out of the cellar, finding value in the free agent pool is the easiest way to improve your team. The road to championships is rarely easy, however. None of the waiver options listed here are without limitations. For a more significant impact to your fantasy fortunes, turn to the trading block. Start exploring your trade options now because the deadline tends to creep up when you least expect it and most need the help. Until you can swing a deal to better your team, these guys will have to do:

Here are some free agents that we think you should GET and ones you need to FORGET heading into week 1 of the season, followed by a recipe for Deep Fried Turkey Rub



Montee Ball

from rotoworld:
One of fantasy’s bigger draft busts is back on the radar for two reasons. First of all, Ronnie Hillman was a healthy scratch in Week 8. And second, the Broncos are now making a concerted effort to ease Knowshon Moreno’s workload a little bit. The idea is that less Moreno now will mean he’ll have more juice in the playoffs as the Broncos chase the Super Bowl. That led to 11 carries and a touchdown for Ball against the Redskins on 30 snaps, while Moreno got 20 touches on 38 snaps. Perhaps most interestingly, Ball got three of four goal-line chances and converted one. He’ll be a monster if Moreno goes down and he’ll have some deep flex appeal if not.
from ffoasis:
Montee Ball received 11 carries last week. I would rather have a Zac Stacy, but if you’re looking deep on the waiver wire, Ball could see his touches stay the same or perhaps see an increase. Why? John Fox. I just can’t get myself to do it… because there are so many mediocre running backs putting up mediocre numbers, but Trent Richardson just isn’t as good as we may have thought he was. I wouldn’t feel good about starting him.


FANFOOD SAYS: GET in all 12+ team leagues



 Marvin Jones


from Kevin Hanson – EDSFootball:
Bengals WR Marvin Jones had a career type of day that he’s unlikely to ever repeat as he set the franchise record for most TD receptions (four) in a game on Sunday. While he won’t repeat those numbers, Jones was emerging as the team’s clear No. 2 receiver behind A.J. Green before his record-setting day. Jones has now scored and finished with at least 50 receiving yards in three consecutive games. With Green the primary focus of opposing defenses, Jones should continue to have opportunities for productive outings going forward.
from KJ – Fantasy Team Advice:
My favorite target on the list is Marvin Jones. He has slowly been evolving as the #2 option behind A.J. Green in the Cincinnati passing attack, and after his 4 TD/122 yard performance, it is safe to say he has landed on the WR3 radar. Green will continue to draw the best corner the opposing team has to offer, leaving Jones plenty of room to work in the weeks ahead.


FANFOOD SAYS: FORGET and don’t chase the stats




Shane Vereen


from KJ – Fantasy Team Advice:
One of my favorite waiver wire targets (not on the rank list) for week 9 will be Shane Vereen, who is currently owned in just 39% of Yahoo! leagues. In his only game of the season for the Patriots, he combined for 159 yards from scrimmage, and with an estimated return date of week 11, I feel owners should be looking to grab him now.
from CBSsports:
Patriots running back Shane Vereen has returned to practice and has shed the brace on his hand, the Boston Herald has reported. Vereen has been on short-term IR since Week 1 with a wrist injury. He will not be eligible for game action until Week 10. Vereen was the team’s most used and effective back in the season opener. He led the team in carries with 14 and yards with 101. He added seven receptions for 58 yards. It remains to be seen if he regains that status upon his return.


FANFOOD SAYS: GET in ALL leagues and stash



Kris Durham


from rotoworld:
Kris Durham caught four passes for 54 yards in Detroit’s Week 8 win over the Cowboys.Durham’s biggest catch came on the Lions’ desperation, and ultimately game-winning, final drive. Streaking down the sideline, Durham made a 40-yard grab in stride before getting out of bounds to stop the clock. Durham has now made at least three catches in five straight games, and is averaging 53 yards in the process.
from CBSsports:
Lions wide receiver Kris Durham probably made the play of the game Sunday during the Week 8 home win over Dallas. Durham hauled in a big reception to get the Lions into scoring position for the game-winning score. Durham caught four passes from quarterback Matthew Stafford in the game. He went for 54 yards and did not score. Durham had six targets. The Lions have a bye Week 9 and return Week 10 at Chicago


FANFOOD SAYS: FORGET in ALL leagues: PLUS the Lions have a bye in week 9



Tim Wright

from R.J. White – Fantasy Football Cafe:
Tim Wright is turning into a viable TE1 for fantasy owners, becoming a key cog in the Buccaneers passing offense. He scored his first TD of the season in Week 8, catching five of eight targets for 48 yards. It was the third time in his last four games that Wright has been targeted at least six times, and that emergence as a reliable weapon, which has neatly coincided with Mike Glennon’s appearance as the starter, will continue with No. 2 receiver Mike Williams out for the season. With the Bucs certain to be playing from behind most weeks, Wright should put up consistently solid numbers week in and week out.
from rotoworld:
Tim Wright caught five passes for 48 yards and a touchdown in Week 8 against the Panthers.
Wright was able to bounce back after being held to two catches for 15 yards in Week 7. He was a non-factor in the first half, but was able to score a touchdown late in the fourth quarter. Wright has emerged as the No. 3 option in the passing game with Mike Glennon at quarterback. He has 19 catches for 195 yards over his last four games. Owners are going to be slow to jump on Tim Wright because he’s an undrafted rookie that plays for the dumpster fire known as the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. But the situation is growing more and more ideal by the week. Wright is a converted college wideout with tremendous movement skills. He has an excellent rapport with Mike Glennon (26 targets over last four weeks) as both spent time with the backups during the offseason. The Bucs will be trailing a ton the rest of the way, leading to lots of passing formations and garbage-time opportunities. And finally, red-zone maven Mike Williams (hamstring) is now done for the year. At 6’3/220, Wright can help fill the void there.


FANFOOD SAYS: GET in 12+team leagues as bench depth



Kenny Stills


from rotoworld:
Coach Sean Payton said Kenny Stills “continues to really play well at a high level and at a consistent level.”Stills has the No. 3 wideout role on lockdown and has produced six catches for 193 yards with three touchdowns over his last two games. But as we’ve seen with the likes of Robert Meachem and Devery Henderson, this situational deep threat job in the Saints’ offense comes with a few peaks and lots of valleys. Stills is averaging just 3.2 targets per game on the year and has been held under 40 yards in four of seven games. If he’s not catching a typically low-percentage bomb, he’s going to hurt your fantasy team. It’s the definition of “boom or bust.”
from the fakefootball:
Kenny Stills caught his own pair of scores and Lance Moore also found the end zone as the Saints topped the Bills on Sunday. It’s nice to see Moore contributing again for New Orleans, but he and Stills both pay a penance to receive passes from Drew Brees. The Lord Breesus works in mysterious ways and the love he has for his many receivers manifests itself in different ways each week. All the Saints’ Week 9 TDs could end up in the hands of Darren Sproles and Marques Colston for all we know. With that said, the injury to Jimmy Graham definitely opens the door for guys like Stills and Moore to see more targets in the weeks to come.


FANFOOD SAYS: FORGET in 10/12 team league, consider in deep leagues


DST Streamer week 9:




from Greg Smith – The Fake Football:
I understand that we’re looking for a single-week streaming option and my choice fits the bill, but I’m taking the Indianapolis Colts because they offer the potential for top-10 fantasy production in subsequent weeks as well. Chuck Pagano has turned the defense around in Indianapolis and their upcoming schedule is a buffet of tasty match-ups. After the Colts square off against the Texans this week (giving up the 2nd-most points to opposing fantasy defenses), they face the Rams, Titans, Cardinals, Titans, Bengals, Texans, and Chiefs to close out the fantasy season. None of those offenses are particularly frightening and you can always ditch the Colts for another plug-and-play defense if the fantasy landscape changes or a better match-up presents itself. At the very least, you’re getting two weeks of value from the Colts: this week against the floundering Texans and next week against Kellen Clemens and the Rams.
from KJ – Fantasy Team Advice: Go with the Indianapolis Colts in week 9, as they take on the Houston Texans who have been one of the more injury prone, turnover teams this year. Indy should have the opportunity for a pick 6, regardless of who is under center for the Texans.





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