Fantasy Corner

Playoff Additions

Mike Evans, WR (TB): Although he most likely will not duplicate his standout performance in week 11, where he had 209 yards receiving and two TDs, Evans could be a key contributor for the fantasy playoffs. Evans is the clear number one for Tampa Bay, and as the season winds down, expect the rookie to get extra targets.

Jordan Matthews, WR (PHI): The rookie out of Vanderbilt has transitioned smoothly into Chip Kelly’s fast-paced offense, and in recent weeks, has been targeted more than Jeremy Maclin. For those looking for a flex option, consider picking up Matthews, who had 107 yards receiving and one TD against Green Bay last week.

Alfred Blue, RB (HOU): With Arian Foster doubtful week-to-week due to reoccurring injuries, Blue could be a very solid addition to playoff-bound rosters. Blue would be a starter on many other NFL teams, but has sat behind Foster all season. In week 11, Blue had 156 rushing yards, good for 15 fantasy points.

Drop for Good:

Zac Stacy, RB (STL): Stacy had a bit of hype coming into the season and was supposed to get even more touches when the Rams lost Sam Bradford for the year, but the running back has seriously underperformed. Stacy has not had over 15 fantasy points all year. It’s time to drop the struggling Stacy.

Montee Ball, RB (DEN): Ball injured his groin in week 11 against the Rams after not playing since week five. Regardless of his injury, Ball has underperformed all year, and in Denver’s pass-first offense, don’t expect Ball to get many more touches as the season progresses.

Eli Manning, QB (NYG): If Manning is still on your roster, drop him for a better waiver-wire pick up this week. Manning is having another down year and was awful in week 11, throwing five interceptions against San Francisco. His 11 interceptions on the season are third-most in the NFL, but he is still incredibly owned in more than 45 percent of leagues.
