New Hits
A New Hit is a likely free agent in most leagues that could be on the verge of a big week, and even regular production down the road. Some will be well known, some will be somewhat unproven & unknown. But it is much easier to scoop up a new hit BEFORE the waiver wire protocol hits on Tuesday, where you will have to wait your turn. Get on our New Hits before they blow up and get on your league’s radar.

timwrightTim Wright NE, Patriots: This is one of the more well known New Hits that I’ll even bother listing here. But the reason I am listing him after he had a big week is because I don’t think it was a fluke. Whatever the Patriots have to do to get anything that resembles a weapon on that receiving core into motion, they’ll do. He fits the Patriots mold: undrafted & “hard working” (as Belichick recently noted). That’s code for “I’m going to forcefeed this undrafted TE to shame every other receiver into working harder”. He’s a viable plug & play this week (in our top 15), and it’s wait & see for the rest of the season.

And now for this Week’s player rankings…
It’s common sense, but if you have to decide between two players on this list, take the one that is ranked higher. If your player does not appear on this list, then he’s probably not very startable in most 10-12 team leagues. (Note, these rankings are based on PPR leagues)

Voodoo Brown
Voodoo Brown started playing fantasy football way back in 1994 — when you had to manually add up scores with the Monday edition of USA Today (yes, that’s how it was done). Since that time, he has amassed 16 championships and 7 runner-ups, with most of his success coming after 2003 (avg. participation of 2-3 leagues per year). These accomplishments are evidence that Voodoo steadily adjusts to the ebbs & flows of the ever-changing fantasy landscape. It’s a different game now than it was in 1994 — hell, even 2004. Rarely finishing as a doormat, Voodoo’s teams are always in the mix. If you want any roster or lineup feedback, you can message him at, or hit him up on Facebook or Twitter (@VoodooBrown)
