EVERYMAN'S FANTASY

TURNING LAST WEEK'S BOX SCORES INTO THIS WEEK'S WAIVER-WIRE MAGIC

ACTION | REACTION

This is an article from the Nov. 18, 2013 issue

ACTION

RB Andre Brown has a spectacular 2013 debut, running for 115 yards and a TD in the Giants' win over the Raiders.

REACTION

... And that against the NFL's No. 6 run defense. As the answer to New York's backfield woes, Brown is a solid RB2.

ACTION

Carolina's D shuts down the host 49ers, forcing two turnovers and sacking Colin Kaepernick six times in a win.

REACTION

Carolina has 21 takeaways and 29 sacks (8½ by DE Charles Johnson, left). No question, this is an elite fantasy D.

RISERS

RILEY COOPER

WR, EAGLES

With two more touchdowns (and 102 receiving yards) he now has seven scores on the year—all with Nick Foles at quarterback.

JOHN CARLSON

TE, VIKINGS

Starting in place of the injured Kyle Rudolph, he caught seven balls for 98 yards and a TD. He's a low-end TE1 when he starts.

BRANDON BOSTICK

TE, PACKERS

Another fill-in who could provide cheap help, the 2012 UFA subbed for Jermichael Finley and hauled in a TD in his first NFL start.

FALLERS

STEVEN JACKSON

RB, FALCONS

Eleven yards on nine carries?! You can't trust the vet (although the off-the-rails Falcons aren't helping him much).

TERRELLE PRYOR

QB, RAIDERS

It was disheartening to see him go 11 of 26 for just 122 yards and an INT, with no TDs. Henceforth he's a QB2 at best.

TYLER EIFERT

TE, BENGALS

He finally got a chance to shine with starter Jermaine Gresham injured and ... had just three catches for 55 yards. Walk on by.
