EVERYMAN'S FANTASY

Turning last week's box scores into this week's waiver-wire magic

This is an article from the Oct. 21, 2013 issue

ACTION REACTION

ACTION

Thirty-four-year-old TE Dallas Clark hauls in four of his six targets for 81 yards and a TD, his best fantasy game as a Raven.

REACTION

He's a clever sub in Weeks 7 and 8, when stud TEs like Jimmy Graham, Antonio Gates and Martellus Bennett face byes.

ACTION

A tight end finally makes some noise for the Lions—but it's not Brandon Pettigrew. Say hello to Joseph Fauria, he of three TDs.

REACTION

Fauria's another decent bye-week guy, but he also takes pressure off (and helps owners of) Calvin Johnson and Reggie Bush.

ACTION

The Law Firm is open for business again: Bengals RB BenJarvus Green-Ellis runs for 86 yards on 18 carries in an OT win over the Bills.

REACTION

The Gio Bernard--BJGE backfield split resembles the Bills' Spiller--Jackson combo. Avoid this sticky sitch if you can.

ACTION

Eagles QB Nick Foles does a dandy Michael Vick impression: 296 yards and three TDs through the air, plus a rushing score in beating the Bucs.

REACTION

Whoever starts against the Cowboys in Week 7—Vick or Foles—will be a great play against the league's 30th-ranked pass D.

RISERS

DENARIUS MOORE

WR, RAIDERS

With 82 yards and his fourth TD of 2013, he's clearly Oakland's top target. For once there's some value in that.

JARRETT BOYKIN

WR, PACKERS

Green Bay's WR corps is suddenly sapped. This second-year man out of Virginia Tech gets a chance in an explosive O.

VINCENT JACKSON

WR, BUCCANEERS

He took a hit due to Tampa's QB mess, but Mike Glennon appears capable. V-Jax returns to WR1 status.

FALLERS

BILAL POWELL

RB, JETS

He was shut down by Pittsburgh, sure—but the real trouble is the crowded backfield. He barely got half of New York's carries this week.

C.J. SPILLER

RB, BILLS

The consensus fantasy first-rounder can't shake Fred Jackson and simply doesn't get the touches to do what owners expect of him.

MATT CASSEL

QB, VIKINGS

Josh Freeman may take over soon. Lay off Cassel, Christian Ponder and any Vikings receiving weapon for now.
