Football News

The NFL fantasy football season is in full swing now and owners are absolutely scrambling at the moment.

The 2016 season so far has been an absolute death trap for running backs, with hardly any high round draft picks performing to their previously expected levels and injuries starting to run amok.

Meanwhile, the wide receiver market is booming and there are great adds to be had. We're here to help you sift through it all and pick the best stars for your team.

Fozzy Whittaker

A man who undoubtedly has to be the number one add of the week is the Carolina Panthers running back, Fozzy Whittaker. After Jonathan Stewart went down with an injury, Whittaker came in and was superb - running for 100 yards and adding another 30 in the passing game. 

Whittaker is 3% owned in most leagues and should definitely be available in yours. He does come with risks, though, most notably the fact that the Panthers play a fearsome Vikings running defense and that Cameron Artis-Payne could swoop in to steal work.

Terrance West

The Baltimore Ravens backfield is all over the place and you should know by now that Justin Forsett isn't the real starter there. Everything is pointing to T.West eventually taking over in the future and that's why you should be scrambling to pick him up.

West continued to eat into Forsett's position as he rushed for 42 yards and added 15 yards on one catch in Week 2. You add a score to that and West would've been an RB1. 

Quincy Enunwa

I'm not sure how it happened, but the New York Jets may have somehow transformed into an air-raid team. Wide receiver is a stacked position in fantasy right now but Enunwa should be a definite target for all owners.

He looked excellent on Thursday Night Football against the Bills from a real life football perspective and that will only increase his role in the offense. Pretty soon, Marshall, Decker and Enunwa could all be startable wideouts.

Dennis Pitta

Just like running backs, the tight end position - outside the elite - have all looked horrible and nobody seems really trustable to perform week in, week out. Enter Dennis Pitta.

Back from a long injury spell, Joe Flacco's favourite target was reinstated to the Baltimore Ravens lineup and looked really good, being targeted an incredible 12 times. He hauled in nine of those for over 100 yards. If he can stay injury free, Pitta could crack the top three at his position.
