1. Stephen Gostkowski 
2. Adam Vinatieri
3. Cody Parkey
4. Caleb Sturgis
5. Steven Hauschka
6. Dan Carpenter
7. Chandler Catanzaro
8. Graham Gano
9. Mason Crosby
10. Phil Dawson

Well here we are again, the Kickers, a pretty straight forward position to rank but there we go, doing it anyways for ya ;)  So let's talk shop, starting with Stephen Gostkowski, who will always get you 12+ fantasy points as he's got great accuracy and leg strength, and is on a team with Tom Brady who either ends every drive with a touchdown or close enough for an easy field goal. Next is a similar case for Adam Vinatieri, who plays with the driving force known as Andrew Luck, and usually plays indoors, look for Adam to score you an almost guaranteed 10+ fantasy points. Basically you look for a kicker who plays on a team that has no problem scoring touchdowns and or driving down the field, and indoors never hurts.



1. Miami Dolphins 
2. San Diego Chargers
3. Denver Broncos
4. Carolina Panthers
5. San Francisco
6. Chicago Bears
7. Arizona Cardinals
8. Washington Redskins
9. Pittsburgh Steelers
10. Cleveland Browns

The Dolphins are the Guruz unanimous choice for first on the defense ranking list this week, as they have stood strong even against the best teams, and face a depleted buffalo backfield. C.J Spiller is out for the year, this is old news, but the recently activate Fred Jackson might also sit out due to nagging injuries and short rest time. Look for the Bills to be a very one dimensional offensive team this week, giving way to the Dolphins D easily scoring 10+ points. The big surprise of course is the Cleveland Browns, who sit atop their division, and the defense is a big reason why. Look for them to feast on a Houston offense being led by first time starter, rookie QB Ryan Mallett. The Browns are another team that are pretty much a guarantee to score 10+ fantasy points this week.



T.J Oshie has been activated off the injured reserve and will play Thursday night against the Predators. He's been on the I.R for seven games with concussion symptoms, but has finally been cleared to play in games. Slot him back into your fantasy team a.s.a.p!!!



1. Jimmy Graham 
2. Rob Gronkowski
3. Julius Thomas
4. Antonio Gates
5. Martellus Bennett
6. Dwayne Allen
7. Greg Olsen
8. Jordan Reed
9. Travis Kelce
10. Mychal Rivera

So this week its "Gronk Spike" vs. "Jimmy Dunk" for our top spot on the rankings list. Realistically, if you have either of these guys you are in amazing hands, as each will put up an almost guaranteed 15+ fantasy points this week. However the edge goes to Jimmy Graham slightly, as his matchup offers a greater chance for a huge game. Still expect Rob Gonkowski to be doing his infamous spike at least once this week, and rack you up tons of points for your fantasy team. The really interesting name here is Mychal Rivera(and no its not because of how he spells it), as he was highly toted in the Guruz Week 11 Waiver Wire, and is already cracking the top 10. Rivera seems to be getting all the valuable targets, and is quickly becoming near matchup proof. Look to start him with full confidence if you were smart enough to take our advice and pick him up. If you didn't manage to grab him, maybe you should subscribe to the Guruz?!?!?!




1. Arian Foster
2. Matt Forte
3. Marshawn Lynch
4. Le'Veon Bell
5. Jamal Charles
6. Eddie Lacy
7. LeSean McCoy
8. Andre Ellington
9. Mark Ingram
10. Ahmad Bradshaw
11. Alfred Morris
12. Giovanni Bernard/Jeremy Hill (whoever starts)
13. Rashad Jennings
14. Shane Vereen
15. Ryan Matthews
16. Frank Gore
17. Joique Bell
18. Lamar Miller
19. Monte Ball
20. Fred Jackson(so low due to injury and questionable tag to play Thursday)

With Demarco Murray on bye this week Arian Foster limps his way to the top of the list. Though he has been banged up a lot of the season he should be in good shape coming off his bye and has a nice match up against the Cleveland Browns. He should have no trouble rushing for at least 100 yards and a touchdown, he has been a force the entire season and this week should prove to be no different. Next on the list is Matt Forte, he is coming off a bad week where the entire Bears team fell apart against the Packers. There is no way they will be as bad against the mediocre at best Minnesota Vikings and I expect at least 80 yards rushing 60 yards receiving from the dual threat superstar. After Forte my next best running back is Marshawn Lynch, coming off a ridiculous 4 touchdown week. He has a tough match up against the Chiefs who have yet to allow a rushing touchdown all season, but I think Marshawn will be the one to finally put an end to that impressive streak. Chalk up 100 yards and a touchdown in what will be another strong performance from Beastmode. Lastly my top player in the bottom half of the rankings is Patriots running back Shane Vereen. The matchup against the Colts could not be any more perfect for Vereen. He is their passing downs back and is a fantastic receiving threat out of the backfield so he should be on the field a ton as the Patriots will need to throw a lot to keep up with the high powered Colts offence.


1. Andrew Luck 
2. Tom Brady
3. Peyton Manning
4. Aaron Rodgers
5. Drew Brees
6. Phillip Rivers
7. Russell Wilson
8. Matthew Stafford
9. Mark Sanchez
10. Ben Roethlisberger
11. Matt Ryan
12. Jay Cutler
13. Cam Newton
14. Colin Kaepernick
15. Eli Manning

This week, our top 5 QB's are really no big surprise, as all five of them have have netted their fantasy owners 20+ points in each of his past 3 respective games. Who we really want to talk about this week is Stafford, Sanchez, Roethlisberger and Cam Newton, lets go alphabetically. Big Ben Roethlisberger had a career stretch of 2 weeks, totalling 12 touchdowns and setting the record, but then came the lowly Jets, and Big Ben was no more. Expect Ben to bounce back in a big way, not as big as another six touchdown performance, but 3 TD's with 300+ yards is not out of the question. Next up we have Superman himself, Cam Newton, or is he? Now having admitted to being hurt(not injured, just hurt), Cam's play the last few games makes a little bit more sense, but its not an excuse. Also if Newton is playing "hurt" I doubt he would've been left in to finish that poor excuse of a game in week 10. So what's really going on here? A lack of communication seems to be brewing between coaching staff and players, something that never bodes well for a team. We do not expect Newton to climb back up the ranks, but rather to fall off our list completely in 2-3 weeks. Next up we have the resurected Mark Sanchez, who starting in place of the injured(and out for the season) Nick Foles, has rejuvinated his career and actually looks to be the high draft pick he was taken at. We see no reason for the Eagles high powered, fast paced offense to suddenly stop, so look for Sanchez to possibly even begin to move higher up our board. Last but not least we have Matthew Stafford, who has finally gotten his very best, most favourite weapon back in the form of a healthy Megatron. Calvin Johnson adds a dynamic to the Lions offense that is matched only by Peyton for the Broncos, and now that he's back, Stafford's value quickly skyrockets. Look for Stafford to hit his favourite wideout tons of times in the coming weeks, making him a QB on the rise.



1. Calvin Johnson
2. Antonio Brown
3. Demaryius Thomas
4. Jordy Nelson
5. Randall Cobb
6. T.Y. Hilton
7. Jeremy Maclin
8. AJ Green
9. Emmanuel Sanders
10. Julio Jones
11. Brandon Marshall
12. Alshon Jeffery
13. Kelvin Benjamin
14. Sammy Watkins
15. Golden Tate
16. Mike Wallace
17. Anquan Boldin
18. Vincent Jackson
19. Odell Beckham Jr.
20. Brandon Cooks
21. Reggie Wayne
22. Mike Evans
23. Mohamed Sanu
24. Brandon Lafell
25. Juian Edleman
26. Desean Jackson
27. Jordan Matthews
28. Martavis Bryant
29. Malcom Floyd
30. Larry Fitzgerald

This week Megatron makes his inevitable return to the top of our rankings. After showing last week that he was healthy, there is no receiver in football like him and the fact that Matthew Stafford and the Lions love to throw certainly doesn't hurt. Next up is Antonio Brown who I fully expect to bounce back after his worst game of the season. The targets and receptions are always there and that is a delicious recipe for consistent fantasy results. Third on the list is Demaryius Thomas, though he has been held out of the end zone for three straight weeks he has still continued to produce, recording at least 100 yards receiving in all of those games. I don't see his touchdown cold streak lasting much longer and anticipate at least 100 yards and a touchdown against the lowly St. Louis Rams. My favourite receiver who  is not ranked in the top 10 this week is Odell Beckham Jr. This rookie just continues to get better and better and is quickly becoming Eli's favourite target. Last week he earned Richard Sherman's respect in a very impressive showing against the vaunted Legion of Boom and I see no reason why he shouldn't continue to put up big numbers this week against San Francisco. Just watch these ridiculous pre-game catches and get excited about starting him if you're fortunate enough to have this emerging star on your roster.

Wide Receiver Watch

1. Jordan Matthews-Eagles
Matthews was already featured as a top receiver in our weekly waiver wire edition, but the opportunity is so great here, we thought we'd cover him again. Mark Sanchez is finally playing like franchise QB he was drafted to be in New York, and with that he seems to have formed a special bond with Jordan Matthews. Matthews is benefiting from both him and Sanchez practising together on the 2nd string team during pre-season, and although we have only seen a small glimpse of this duo, we can expect great things from the two of them.

2. John Brown-Cardinals
Brown is another player we already covered in our weekly waiver wire pick-ups, but it's another case of Quarterback swap, and Brown is the one receiving all the benefits. Drew Stanton has come in to replace the often injured Carson Palmer, who is out for the remainder of the season with a torn ACL, and was mainly hitting Brown in the fourth quarter (when Stanton was playing). We all know from past experience that Stanton hates throwing to Larry Fitz for some unknown reason, which makes John Brown an even more intriguing option then he already was becoming. 

3. Davante Admas-Packers
Adam's role in the Packers offense is not the definition of constant, as he has been given 95% of snaps one week, and less then 55% the next. When he is being used, he is little more then a WR3 for fantasy purposes, but has demonstrated great skill sets and a working relationship with Aaron Rodgers. If either Cobb or Nelson should go down with the injury bug, look for Adams to become a pivotal  part of this offense, soaking up 7-10 targets on a weekly basis.

4. Donte Moncrief-Colts
Moncrief is in a very sticky situation, as he's been relegated to WR4 duties on the Colts, and will not be fantasy relevant for as long as he's stuck there. He is clearly much more talented then Hakeem Nicks, and its only a matter of time before he's given the snaps/playing time he deserves. Keep a keen eye on Moncrief, because as soon as he moves up the Colts depth chart, he should be moved onto your fantasy team.

5. Jarvis Landry-Dolphins
Mike Wallace is the clear-cut number one wideout down in Miami, but there's another name who's beginning to soak up targets. Jarvis Landry hasn't been getting the deep bombs like Wallace, but he has been receiving 5-10 targets the last few weeks, churning out large yardage gains, and good fantasy numbers. He is starting to become fantasy relevant even with a healthy Wallace hogging all the deep targets, and his value should only sky rocket if anything should happen to big Mike. Keep a very close watch on Landry, and even roster him if you can spare the spot.



1. Jeremy Hill (Doesn't really count as he is owned in 85% of yahoo leagues)
The Bengals are a mess on both offense and defense right now, but it won't stay that way for long, so let's take a look at their fantasy relevant players. Making his way onto this particular list is Jeremy Hill, the Bengals backup running back to Giovani Bernard. Bernard is a hard, ground and pound style runner who is seemingly injury prone, opening the door to increased touches for Hill. Even when Bernard has been on the field and "healthy", Jeremy Hill has still seen 10-15 rushing attempts and 3-5 passing targets. If Bernard goes down for a lengthy amount of time, or for good, Jeremy Hill instantly becomes a top 10 running back on a weekly basis. All Bernard owners must look to own or trade for Hill, and if for some reason he is available off the wire in your league, pick him up immediately! 

2. Knile Davis
Jamaal Charles is one of the most electric running backs in the entire league, but that unfortunately comes at a high price, his health suffers greatly. Charles uses his speed to weave in and out of would-be tacklers, but can often get hit very hard, and is prone to high-ankle and foot injuries. When Charles has missed time, Knile Davis has shown that he is more then capable of leading the Chiefs backfield and producing for fantasy owners. He is currently only owned in 45% of yahoo leagues, and all Jamaal Charles owners should be stashing Davis ASAP.

3. Joseph Randle (As long as he doesn't steal anymore cologne and underwear)
You'd think a guy that made $485,000 this season wouldn't need to shoplift, well, you'd be wrong!!! Hahaha, but seriously, Randle has talent, explosive speed and a keen eye for gaps in the defense. Demarco Murray has only rushed for under 100 yards once this season, and the Cowboys workhorse continues to rack-up both the carries, the yards and the big hits. Eventually all this is going to take its toll on Murray, and the guy will have to give in to pure exhaustion of nothing else. Look for Randle to be continued to be mixed in more heavily as the season progresses, giving Murray more and more of a breather. He's available in 95% of leagues, so what's stopping you?!?!

4. Alfred Blue
Arian Foster's backup has always been fantasy relevant, and this season is no different. His run style opens the door to constant nagging/lingering injuries, so this years recipient of extra touches is Alfred Blue. He might not be the best, most talented runner out there, but he finds a way to get the job done with the carries he gets. He's a mandatory handcuff for Arian Foster owners, which leaves me puzzled as to his low ownership at only 17%.

5. Carlos Hyde
The 49ers have lost any offensive identity they might have once claimed, thus they will be looking for new ways to score points and spark their offense. We here at the Sportz Guruz still have faith in Frank Gore, but he is getting older, and might have lost a step or two when it comes to bursting out. Carlos Hyde seems to be sticking around, and when given the opportunities has shown amazing rookie talent. If things continue in this downwards spiral for the 49ers, we could end up seeing Hyde featured as the lead back, as they attempt to move on to the future. Only 35% owned and is getting regular playing time even with Gore healthy, flock to the wire and scoop him up while you can.

6. Robert Turbin
Marshawn Lynch has been locked in Beastmode for most of the season, so Robert Turbin is seeing very little action, but what action he has seen, he's done wonders with. He's racked up 148 yards on 32 attempts, which is an astounding 4.6 average yards per carry. He's not too shabby in the pass game either, catching 10 of 12 targets for 109 yards and a touchdown. If Lynch goes down for any amount of time at all, expect to see tons of Turbin, with lots of fantasy points to follow. Keep your eyes on him/Lynch, and move to roster him in all leagues should Lynch go down.



Shaun Hill has been announced as the starting Quarterback for the St. Louis Rams this Sunday against the Denver Broncos. This comes after a string of poor performances by the rookie Austin Davis. Hill is coming off an injury, and may be a bit rusty, there aren't really any fantasy implications here. Steer clear of Shaun Hill and the Rams offense until further notice.


1. Sidney Crosby
2. Tyler Seguin
3. Steven Stamkos

5. Ryan Getzlaf
6. John Tavares

30. Filip Forsberg
31. Ryan Kesler
32. Alexander Steen
33. Sean Monahan
34. Brock Nelson
35. Tyler Bozak

Sidney Crosby leads the pack here, easily scoring a cool 2.1 points per game, this guy is unreal. He also gets you tons of face-off wins and shots on goal, he's all around the best player to have on your fantasy team. In a very close 2nd we have Seguin and Stamkos. Stamkos should continue to get better as the season progresses, so look for him to be your clear-cut number two overall fantasy payer, as long as he doesn't get hurt again! Our Centre rankings are found using the following stat categories: Goals, Assists, +/-, Shots On Goal, Face-off Wins, Power Play Points and Short Handed Points. This is why some players might be higher then others in our left/right winger rankings, but lower then the same players in our Centre rankings. A lot of players carry multiple position tags in fantasy leagues, but not all those players actually play those positions, causing the ranking lists to be somewhat skewed and differ from one another. 



1. Evgeni Malkin
2. Alexander Ovechkin
3. Tyler Seguin
4. Claude Giroux
5. Corey Perry (low due to injury)
6. Ryan Johansen
7. Phil Kessel
8. Joe Pavelski
9. James Neal
10. Rick Nash
11. Patrick Kane (low due to injury)
12. Jakub Voracek
13. Patric Hornquist

15. Vladmir Tarasenko
16. Tyler Toffoli
17. Wayne Simmons
18. Radim Vrbata
19. David Backes
20. Jordan Eberle

To everyone's surprise, Malkin has runaway with the top right winger award so far this season. He's good, but no one thought he could be this good after missing all of the pre-season with unknown ailments, and was suspected to miss some of the regular season as well. Well he's here, and showing everyone that they were wrong. Hot on his tail is Ovechkin, but we covered him in our left winger section so I won't repeat myself, so let's skip to Tyler Seguin and Ryan Johansen. For some reason no one seems to want to give Seguin the credit he deserves, as he always falls down fantasy manager's draft boards year after year, but here he is again, racking up the points at an average rate of 1.7 points per game in the form of 10 goals and 9 assists. Then there is Ryan Johansen, who tumbled down the draft boards due to his extremely late signing with an NHL team. His 16 total points are nothing to scoff at, and he also gets you the all important face-off win. These are definitely two players you want to target in trades. Last but not least, we have the Curious Case of Corey Perry(see what I did there, lol). He's been placed on the IR by the Ducks, and they recently announced he has a viral gland infection. What they didn't tell us is just how long something like that sidelines a player, and he's already missed three games due to it. Let's treat it like a very bad case of the flu or bronchitis, and assume he will be out at least one more week. Again, if you can find someone in desperate need of healthy players asap, and you can stand to roster a guy or two, then pull the trigger and make the trade for Corey Perry. 



1. Alexander Ovechkin
2. Jamie Benn
3. Chris Kunitz
4. Logan Couture
5. James Neal
6. Joe Pavelski
7. Zach Parise
8. Daniel Sedin
9. Patrick Sharp (low due to injury)
10. Henrik Zetterberg
11. Patrck Marleau
12. Rick Nash
13. Milan Lucic
14. Taylor Hall (so low due to injury)
15. Max Pacioretty
16. Chris Kreider
17. Filip Forsberg
18. Brad Marchand
19. Scott Hartnell
20. Jaden Schwatz

Ovechkin is the clear numero uno here, and theres not much else to say about that. He's a dominant force on offense, scoring an average of 1.3 points per game, there's not a fantasy manager out there that wouldn't kill to have Ovechkin on their team. The really interesting ones here are Patrick Sharp and Taylor Hall, both exceptional players, both badly hurt. Sharp is projected to miss 3-4 weeks with a lower leg injury, while Hall was initially announced out for 2-4 weeks with an MCL sprain. Hall's timetable is uncertain and a return date is unknown, as MCL sprains are a very tricky business and are hard to fully come back from without extended time off. Both players are top scorers for their real NHL teams, and make for very intriguing buy-low candidates, especially Kane. Also look for Max Pacioretty to regain some of his 2013 season form, and should climb up our ranks to the top ten by next month.

Jordan Matthews WR-Eagles (week 10 targets: 7/9-138-2)
Sanchez has returned, all be it very different from how he was before. With this seemingly new Mark Sanchez throwing the ball, Jordan Matthews stock goes way, way up. They seemed to have a very strong connection during pre-season, and that is carrying over into tons of targets heading Matthews way. Jordan Matthews managed to haul in 7 of 9 targets for 138 yards and 2 touchdowns this week, and is now owned in only 27% of yahoo standard leagues. Look for him to continue to get 8-12 targets a week, and should be equalling Jeremy Maclin in Redzone looks.

John Brown WR-Cardinals (week 10 targets: 5/9-73-1)
Drew Stanton is under centre now, and John Brown saw the majority of his throws once he came in for the injured Palmer. Now this is a little bit more of a long-shot pickup, as we can't really be certain how well Stanton will handle the Cardinals offense, but the upside is there. He runs the slot and backup quarterbacks often use the slot receiver as a check/escape option. Brown should continue to see 7-10 targets, and use his speed and elusiveness to gain 65+ yards with a good chance of scoring a touchdown. He is only owned in 20% of standard leagues, so if you have the spot, or just lost Allen Robinson for the season, scoop him up while you can.

Josh McCowan QB-Tampa Bay (week 10 attempts: 27/43-301-2)
Tampa Bay has been an absolute mess this year, and made the switch from McCowan to Mike Glennon after Josh hurt his thumb. Now, it looks as though Glennon's leash has runout, and a healthy McCowan has taken the starting QB reigns back. The Bucs are still winless, but McCowan gives them the best bet to win, hitting both Vincent Jackson and Mike Evans for touchdowns in his return to the starting role this past week. His numbers in week 10 were top 5 QB worthy, throwing 27/43 passes for 301 yards and 2 touchdowns. He is owned currently in only 14% of yahoo standard leagues, and is a possible candidate to remain a top 10 fantasy QB for the rest of the season. If your in a 12-team or more league, or in a league with 2 QB's, pick him up asap!!!

Mark Sanchez QB-Eagles (week 10 attempts: 20/37-332-2)
The Butt-Fumbling Quarterback is back, and back with a vengeance. Slotted into the starting QB role in Chip Kelly's fast pace offense for the injured Nick Foles, Mark Sanchez has kept his cool, and played very well. In his first game starting, Sanchez threw for 332 yards on 20/37 completions with 2 touchdowns and no interceptions. This is his offense now, and with the special bond he seems to have developed with Jordan Matthews, Sanchez has every chance of continuing to churn out top 10 quality fantasy performances the rest of the way. He is owned in 44% of yahoo leagues, so if he's still on the waiver wire somehow, grab him well you can in any and all leagues!

Drew Stanton QB-Cardinals (week 10 attempts: 3/5-85-1)
Carson Palmer signed a huge contract extension and then did what every owner fears most, ended his season with a torn ACL. The 7-1 Cardinals handed their offense over to Drew Stanton who led them to victory and an NFL best record of 8-1. Stanton has tons of great receiving targets at his disposal in the forms of Larry Fitzgerald, John Brown, Michael Floyd and Andre Ellington, making his job of producing fantasy points much easier. The small glimpse we got last week during the end of the game when Stanton replaced Palmer was a great one, completing 3 of 5 passes for 85 yards with a touchdown and no interceptions. His upside is well worth the flyer, and could surprise down the stretch with top 15 QB potential. Look to add him in every league with 12 or more teams/2 QB's started, as he is only owned in 2% of yahoo standard leagues.

Mychal Rivera TE-Raiders (week 10 targets: 6/8-64-1)
The Oakland Raiders are a team you usually avoid for fantasy purposes as they just are flat out bad, both in the real and fantasy worlds. However we may have one diamond in the rough here with Mychal Rivera. Carr has proven he can throw the ball, and throw it well, just not consistently, but Rivera seems to be sucking in enough targets to render Carr's accuracy issues mute. In the last 3 weeks, Rivera has had games with targets of 8, 9, and 11, hauling in no less than 6 passes in all three of those games. He has clearly established himself as Oakland's number one receiving target, catching 6 of 8 passes for 64 yards and 1 touchdown in week 10, and should continue to pickup big fantasy points in garbage time. With only 34% ownership, Mychal makes for a perfect flyer this week, especially with Delanie Walker uncertain with a concussion.

Brent Celek TE-Eagles (week 10 targets: 5/6-116-0)
Everyone was panicking when Nick Foles went down with what appeared to be a broken shoulder, but now it seems as though the Eagles season is saved. To the rescue came Mark Sanchez, who seems to have pumped life back in the disappearing Brent Celek. Celek went off in Sanchez's first start, catching 5 of 6 passes for 116 yards. He didn't hit pay dirt, but the Eagles were up by so much, they turned to the control running game for much of the second half. We expect Celek to rise back up to almost where he used to be, although there is some risk, the rewards are very worth it. Again, hardly owned in yahoo standard leagues at 2%, and with Delanie Walker very uncertain with his concussion, look to add Celek wherever you can if you need the Tight-End boost.

Tre Mason RB-Rams (week 10 rushing attempts: 14/48-0 targets: 4/6-33-0)
The St. Louis Rams backfield is not one anyone should really be touching with a ten-foot pole, however, in saying that, it looks as though they have finally settled on a semi-lead back. Mason has now lead the team in snaps and rushing attempts for three straight weeks, in week 10 racking up 48 yards on 14 attempts and 33 yards on 4 of 6 catches. Tre needed to become a better pass-protector and pass-catcher, and it appears that the Rams think he has improved enough to become their starter. Tre Mason is the only Rams running back to own right now, and is still available in 54% of standard yahoo fantasy leagues, grab him while you can!!!


Isaiah Crowell RB-Browns (week 10 rushing attempts:12/41-1)
Crowell and his 41 yards on 12 attempts with 1 touchdown can be completely ignored this week, as the entire browns offense feasted in the Thursday night bashing of the Bengals. Terrence West is currently the lead back, with Ben Tate right on his arse, making Isaiah the third string that only gets a good amount of fantasy points when the Browns epically destroy their opponent (not gonna happen often). Don't waste your waiver priority on Crowell, he won't produce consistent fantasy points and will be a huge let down for you.

T.J Graham WR-Jets (week 10 targets: 1/1-67-1)
If your a manager that likes picking up players solely based on their fantasy point production total, then I'm sure T.J. Graham has caught your eye. DO NOT LET HIS POINT TOTAL FOOL YOU, he only caught 1 pass on 1 target, and managed to turn it into a 67 yard touchdown. This does in no way constitute a viable fantasy option. Steer very clear of Graham if you know what's good for you. 

Andre Williams RB-Giants (week 10 rushing attempts: 13/33-1 targets:2/5-0)
Last up we have Andre Williams, who has had sole possession of the Giants starting gig for a few weeks now, and has done absolutely nothing with it. His mediocre week 10 performance of 33 rushing yards on 13 attempts with 1 touchdown and 2 of 5 catches for 5 yards, did not help his case at all, and now with Rashad Jennings slated to comeback next week it looks as though Williams will be tossed into fantasy obscurity. Do not bother adding Williams, as his role will greatly diminish with every passing week. 



ALLEN ROBINSON (JAGS)- OUT FOR THE REST OF THE SEASON with a broken foot. Robinson suffered the injury at some point during the game Sunday, but only told coaches about his ailing foot after the game. He reported soreness and was taken for testing. X-Rays confirmed that he fractured his foot and will miss the remainder of this season. Look for him to be back next season as the Jags #1 deep offensive threat.

As of right now, PK Subban has been outplaying and outscoring Erik Karlsson, but just barely. Both are incredibly talented defencemen who greatly help your fantasy hockey team, and to own either of these two is a great accomplishment. Karlsson should end the year higher then Subban, but for now PK is the man to beat. Down near the bottom we have our "injured but worth owning" section, where each player can have a huge impact on your team when they are healthy. Look for any/all of these guys to have been dropped in your league due to their ailments, and be the smart manager and pick them up asap!!!

For our first ever Goalie Rankings, me and the other guru could absolutely not come to an agreement on who should be ranked as our top-notch goalie, and thus we have a tie for first between Quick and Fleury. Fleury is on clearly one of the best teams in the NHL right now, allowing for him to rack up wins like no other. This mixed with his legitimate skills as a top-10 netminder, he remains for now, tied with Jonathan Quick for first. Quick has arguably the best natural skills of any goalie in the NHL. His reflexes aided by a great defence allows Quick to keep the Kings in every game, often coming out with a "W". Our bottom-of-the-barrel surprise would have to be Corey Schneider, as his play so far thus season has been less then excellent. He finally got solitary reigns on a starting goalie gig, but hasn't really done much with the opportunity. Expected to be a top five goalie, Schneider has struggled to pick up wins behind a surprisingly shaky devils D-Line. We both can agree on one thing, Schneider and the Devils are poised to turn things around, making him a very good buy-low candidate.

15. Mark Sanchez

Is there really any surprise here, as Peyton Manning has reached or exceeded his fantasy point projections in 8 out of 9 weeks.  He is a God playing among mere mortals, and that's all there is to it. He will remain at the top of our rankings list until he either gets hurt, or the Broncos fall apart around him. Next down the pecking order this week is the Mustache-Man himself Aaron Rodgers. He's healthy, his top receivers are all healthy, his o-line is solid, and he has bucket loads of talent. Rodgers is sure to dominate this week, so let him loose on your rosters and watch the magic unfold. As for this weeks intriguing low-rider, I'm going with Cam Newton. He's been inaccurate lately, and his main wideout (kelvin benjamin) has been dropping touchdown passes right, left and centre, but he really is superman when it comes to quarterback talent. He can breakout for a huge run at a moments notice, or burn you deep down field with a blazing pass. It's just a matter of time before the Panthers offense finally starts clicking, could this be the week? I say, MAYBE! However the biggest surprise name that just barely made it into our top 15 is the Butt Fumbling Mark Sanchez!!! He's earned the starting gig down in Philly after Nick Foles was pronounced out for 6-8 weeks with a broken not throwing clavicle. The Eagles offense is so point hungry, that not even Sanchez can can screw this up, thus allowing for Sanchez to hopefully easily score 15+ fantasy points.
