After Roger Goodell and the NFL front office made sweeping rules changes to improve player safety, EVERYBODY is injured! There are currently over 350 players on this week's injury report. This doesn't include other injured players who have missed time throughout the year. To put things in perspective, I'll list the fantasy-relevant players currently injured below. By fantasy relevant, I mean offensive positional skill players (QB, HB, WR, TE) and kickers that can be expected to have been expected to have been drafted or picked up off of waivers in most leagues. There will be a list of fantasy-relevant players (QB, K, TE, WR, and RB that could legitimately have been rostered in most leagues) who are on this week's injury report following my streamer picks. Oh, and since the NFL's rules changes were instituted to prevent concussions, 28 players are currently dealing with concussions (that's just this week, not all season). The vast majority of injuries are lower-body injuries. Concussions then, are still problematic, and the league has done a great job of creating an epidemic of lower body injuries among players. Well played Roger Goodell, well played. But anyway, your fantasy team is probably hurting because of some of these injuries, so let's get you some help!
Ryan Fitzpatrick, QB, New York Jets. If Fitzpatrick is available in your league, he's probably the best waiver pickup you'll get at QB. He's been consistently decent all season, and will provide enough points to help you compete. Well worth a shot.
Matt Hasselbeck, QB, Indianapolis Colts. Hasselbeck has done nicely filling in for Andrew Luck, and should continue to produce moving forward. If you need a quarterback and Fitzpatrick isn't there, grab Hasselbeck.
David Johnson, RB, Arizona Cardinals. All other Cardinals running backs are injured. That means that David Johnson is the Cardinals RB1 by default! Grab him while you can; the injury bug has bitten again in Arizona.
Spencer Ware, RB, Kansas City Chiefs. He's producing a bit, he's healthy...he's probably your best bet this week in the Kansas City backfield! In a season where the waiver wire is riddled with IR candidates, Ware could be a great fill-in for a week or two if you're waiting for your guy to get healthy.
Buck Allen, RB, Baltimore Ravens. The sure bellcow RB in Baltimore's backfield thanks to injury, Allen may have been forgotten as everyone in your league tried to grab Rawls last week. If you need a long-term RB to finish out your year, grab Allen. If nothing else, he'll get carries. He's looked good against the Browns on Monday night as well.
Doug Baldwin, WR, Seattle Seahawks. Baldwin has had a solid few weeks, and the Seahawks have lost Jimmy Graham for the season. Baldwin is likely to see an uptick in targets and should provide decent production to finish your season.
Jermaine Kearse, WR, Seattle Seahawks. If you're a bit of a gambler, grab Kearse instead of Baldwin. Kearse has had a few nice big plays, and those have resulted in nice fantasy points. He's definitely a risky play, but if the rest of your team is solid, he's worth a flex play.
DeVante Parker, WR, Miami Dolphins. Parker will finally start to ecclipse Rishard Matthews in the Miami offense. With Matthews dealing with injury, Parker has finally gotten a look, and is developing nicely. He has the potential to put up some nice production moving forward.
Bryan Walters, WR, Jacksonville Jaguars. Walters has performed well at times for Jacksonville, and with Allen Hurns on the injury report, Walters could see some extra looks this week. Worth a shot, especially in deeper leagues.
Crockett Gillmore, TE, Baltimore Ravens. Gillmore isn't getting the love he deserves in leagues this year. He's one of the few healthy options left in the Baltimore offense, and Schaub is known to rely on tight ends. Gillmore could be worth a gamble if you can't get Chandler for the week.
Zach Miller, TE, Chicago Bears. Miller has had a few nice games after Martellus Bennett went down with an injury. Miller will be a useful asset for your roster until Bennett comes back from his injury. At this point, if you're dealing with injury issues, even a short-term fix can help this late in the year.
Scott Chandler, TE, New England Patriots. Rob Gronkowski is injured and Chandler will start in his place. Chandler did well in Buffalo, and Brady will need to throw to SOMEBODY. If you need help at tight end this week, Chandler is a great option.
Cincinnati Bengals D/ST. The Bengals defense was dominant against the Rams, and should dominate again this week against the Browns. They're likely available in most leagues (I added them in nearly every one of my leagues last week to start against the Rams), and could help you out majorly this week.
Minnesota Vikings D/ST. Yes, the Vikings host the Seahawks this week. However, the Seahawks are missing Jimmy Graham and Marshawn Lynch. Thomas Rawls has done an admirable job replacing Marshawn Lynch. No replacement has stepped up for Graham yet. This could make the Seattle offense a decent matchup for opposing defenses, especially one as dominant as Minnesota.
Chicago Bears D/ST. The Bears had a solid week against the Green Bay Packers, and could be in line for another solid game against the San Francisco 49ers. This might not be a huge week for the Chicago defense, but they could get you 8 to 10 points. Worth a look.
Hope this helps, and happy streaming. I'll close with a list of currently injured fantasy-relevant players for your viewing pleasure. --Mike B.
Some currently injured fantasy-relevant players:
Roger Goodell has committed to making the league safer for players everywhere. In response, players are getting injured, everywhere. Injuries are definitely the story of this week, and this season. Marshawn Lynch's season may be over. Joe Flacco and Justin Forsett? Done for the year. There are still some big players to target to fill in holes left by injury, and that can help you. Before the season started, I recommended Thomas Rawls as a lottery pick at the tail end of a draft. If he's on your team right now, he may take Marshawn Lynch's workload for the rest of the season, and could win your league for you. If he's available in your league, add him NOW, then finish reading this post. Here are my picks for week 12.
Jameis Winston, QB, Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Winston had a really nice game for the Bucs in week 11. While he's still inconsistent, last week's game was extremely promising. He's still going to be inconsistent, but if things are finally clicking, he could put up some nice numbers down the stretch.
Brock Osweiler, QB, Denver Broncos. I talked up Osweiler here last week, and he had a decent week. He's starting again this week against the Patriots, and the Broncos could need to pass a lot against Brady & Company. That spells a potentially productive week for Osweiler. With Manning struggling with injury issues, Osweiler could be more than a one week fill in for your team.
THOMAS RAWLS, RB, SEATTLE SEAHAWKS. Do you like to win fantasy matchups? Do you want the #1 RB in one of the top running offenses in the league? Do you want a guy that is replacing Marshawn Lynch, potentially for the season, and looking like Marshawn Lynch? Then get Rawls on your roster, now. I locked him up in a dynasty league for 5 years (1 mil a year for 5 years on a 200 mil a year budget) and got picked on for it in the preseason (no Christine Michael or Robert Turbin?). Now, he's replacing Lynch potentially for the year, and maybe longer. In training camp, Pete Carroll described Rawls as Lynch 2.0. Turns out he was right. Go get him if he's available in your leagues. Now.
Jarvoris Allen, RB, Baltimore Ravens. Allen will be the starting running back in Baltimore for the season unless the Ravens do something drastic to replace him following Forsett's season-ending injury. He's not as good as Rawls, but should see a nice volume of carries down the stretch given the lack of healthy players on Baltimore's roster. He's another guy to snag now if you need help at running back.
Ahmad Bradshaw, RB, Indianapolis Colts. This is more of a "wait and see" type of pickup. He's gaining looks and had a really nice game this week. Also, starting runnning back Frank Gore is dinged up, so Bradshaw could see plenty of looks this week. Give him a shot if help is needed and Rawls and Allen are unavailable.
Tevin Coleman, RB, Atlanta Falcons. Now that the NFL has worked so hard to eliminate concussions, Devonta Freeman left Sunday's game....with a concussion. He may or may not clear the concussion protocol this week, but if he doesn't, this is Coleman's backfield for the week. Remember that Coleman was a high draft pick and a player who the Falcons could trust in the event that Freeman were to miss time.
Robert Turbin, RB, Dallas Cowboys. Are you looking for a big gamble that could pay huge dividends if the pieces fall correctly? Do you expect Darren McFadden to get injured at some point this season, given the huge number of injuries already? Then take a gamble on Cowboys running back Robert Turbin. I hate to say a player is injury-prone, but McFadden has been injured nearly every season of his NFL career. He could miss time at some point this year, making Turbin worth a bench spot on your roster.
Spencer Ware, RB, Kansas City Chiefs. Ware had a great game after backup Charcandrick West went down to injury. West is day-to-day, but is dealing with a hamstring issue, which can be a tough injury for running backs. He could miss time this week, and if he does, Ware will fill the void.
Devin Funchess, WR, Carolina Panthers. Funchess is finally starting to look good in the Carolina offense, and could generate some nice production moving forward. If you need help at WR, him or Ted Ginn are likely your best options on the waiver wire, unless your league has many foolish managers. Plan accordingly.
Tyler Lockett, WR, Seattle Seahawks. Lockett had a nice game this week, and may finally be coming up to speed. It generally takes a while for receivers to transition into an NFL offense, but if Lockett is finding his stride, you want him on your team if you have any question marks at the position. Give him a long look this week.
Ted Ginn Jr., WR, Carolina Panthers. Ginn has been consistently decent all season long, especially in ppr formats. Funchess picking up looks might hurt his production a bit, but he should still be a decent flex play moving forward, especially if you're dealing with injuries at the position.
JJ Nelson, WR, Arizona Cardinals. Did anyone else see the breakout performance Nelson had against Cincinnati? He might lose some looks this week if Michael Floyd returns, but if not, he could have another big game for the Cardinals. Even if Floyd does return, he's worth grabbing just in case he's finally clicking.
Dorial Green-Beckham, WR, Tennessee Titans. Some time this season, I expect Green-Beckham to break out in a big way. When he does, let it be on your roster. If your team is solid as a whole and you have room to take a gamble in your lineup on someone who might put up a dud, grab Green-Beckham. He got me 7 points this week in a PPR league, which at least is decent, but has the upside to deliver big numbers some time soon.
Brian Hartline, WR, Cleveland Browns. Need a WR in a PPR league? Does everyone in your league buy into the idea that there are no good receivers in Cleveland? Hartline is putting up nice numbers, especially in PPR formats, as he always has. He won't put up huge numbers, but he'll give you consistently decent numbers at least. If you're looking for a flex or #3/#4 option, Hartline is for you.
Crockett Gillmore, TE, Baltimore Ravens. The Baltimore offense has more injuries than a MASH unit, and Gillmore has been steady and consistent throughout the season Matt Schaub loves throwing to tight ends, so Gillmore could become a strong fantasy option down the stretch.
Brent Celek, TE, Philadelphia Eagles. Maybe it's Sanchez. Maybe Celek has changed his approach in practice. Maybe it's something different. But Celek has looked like the Celek of old the past two weeks, and could continue that streak this week. He's well worth an add if needed.
Cleveland Browns D/ST. This week, the Browns face the Baltimore Ravens, who do not have an offense. The Ravens have lost their #1 QB, RB, and WR for the season thanks to injury. Their former #1 TE, Dennis Pitta, is also missing the year due to injuries. Expect the Browns defense to feast this week.
Detroit Lions D/ST. The Lions slowed down the Raiders last week, and could do well against an anemic Philadelphia offense. Philly's offense is in decline this season, and the Lions defense is on the rise. This could be a good matchup for this unit.
Hope this helps, and happy streaming! Stay healthy this week and have a happy Thanksgiving!
This week, even more major injuries. New England Patriots WR Julian Edelman will miss some time thanks to a potentially serious foot injury. Cuts are also happening; the Cowboys have released running back Christine Michael and quarterback Brandon Weeden. Peyton Manning's career might actually be coming to an end after a rough showing in week 10. It's been a long season already, but there are still weeks to go before your fantasy playoffs begin. At this point in the year, now is the time to make that last push into the playoffs. That starts with strong waivers claims and good strategy. Who do I like this week? Here are a few names.
Brock Osweiler, QB, Denver Broncos. Is it Osweiler time in Denver? Osweiler is starting in place of the injured Peyton Manning this week, and with a Denver offense with lots of weapons, this is a big moment for him. Now is the time for Brock Osweiler to prove that he has what it takes to be the future face of the Denver Broncos. He has a limited amount of experience, but if Osweiler comes in and performs well, he could take over for good in Denver, much like what happened with Tom Brady and Drew Bledsoe. Osweiler is a huge gamble this week, but if he hits the ground running, he could help your team if you're in dire need of a quarterback.
Tony Romo, QB, Dallas Cowboys. If you want a more palatable answer at quarterback moving forward and prefer to bet on "sure things," Romo could be coming back from injury this week. Check your waiver wires and add him immediately if he's there if you need help at quarterback.
Jay Ajayi, RB, Miami Dolphins. Ajayi was one of my favorite running backs in this year's draft class. He still is, even after missing the early portion of the season thanks to injuries. Ajayi is finally carving out a role in Miami, and the Dolphins might want to give him a longer look to see whether he has the talent to replace starter Lamar Miller next season. Expect Ajayi's role to continue to grow moving forward, and he could break out for a big game any week.
Jeremy Langford, RB, Chicago Bears. I know, I know. Matt Forte is "the guy" in Chicago at running back. However, Forte's contract ends following the season, and Chicago needs to know whether Langford is the answer moving forward. He looked like it last week. Expect Chicago to continue to give him the ball moving forward, even if Forte remains the #1. While he won't put up big points every week, Langford could make a nice flex play moving forward.
Matt Jones, RB, Washington Redskins. Out-touched and outperformed Alfred Morris in week 10. Jones will have good and bad weeks, but he had another good one last week. He's worth a look if you need quick RB help.
Steve Johnson, WR, San Diego Chargers. With Keenan Allen out for the year, Philip Rivers still needs to throw to somebody. Wide receiver Steve Johnson is probably his best bet. Especially in PPR leagues, Johnson deserves to be on your roster if you have space (or a need at WR).
Brandon Lafell and Danny Amendola, WRs, New England Patriots. With Edelman injured, Lafell and Amendola figure to get lots of looks in the Patriots offense. Lafell is owned in a lot of leagues, but if you can get him, grab him. Amendola is a bit more accessible thanks to his own inconsistent history, but he could have some nice games for the Patriots down the stretch. If you're looking for a WR, why not grab a guy catching balls from one of the best quarterbacks in the game?
Brian Hartline, WR, Cleveland Browns. Hartline has put together a couple of nice weeks catching passes from Johnny Manziel. This could continue in the future, and Hartline could be worth holding onto especially in PPR leagues. As has been the case throughout his career, his value is higher in PPR leagues than in standard scoring formats.
Dwayne Harris, WR, New York Giants. Harris has had a solid couple of weeks and looks like he may have passed Rueben Randle in the pecking order in the New York Giants offense. He's worth an add especially in deeper leagues.
Cody Latimer, WR, Denver Broncos. Latimer finally emerged as an offensive weapon for Denver. All it took was for Peyton to not be on the field. Was this game a fluke or will Latimer continue to develop a rapport with Osweiler? This will be an interesting pairing to watch, and Latimer could become fantasy relevant as the year goes on.
Jordan Reed, TE, Washington Redskins. Reed is under-owned in a lot of leagues right now. He has the potential for a big game every week, even if he doesn't produce huge numbers on a weekly basis. If you need a bye week or injury replacement, Reed is worth a look this week (and down the stretch). If you need TE help, Reed could be big for your team.
Eric Ebron, TE, Detroit Lions. This could be a huge week for Ebron. The Lions face the Raiders, and the Raiders give up lots of big games to tight ends. If Ebron is there, grab him and start him this week in all your leagues.
Jacob Tamme, TE, Atlanta Falcons. Tamme is quietly putting together a decent season. Compare his numbers in your particular scoring system to other TE options. He could be a nice surprise, especially in deeper PPR leagues.
Crockett Gillmore, TE, Baltimore Ravens. The Ravens passing offense is riddled with injuries, and Gillmore looks to remain a key cog in what remains. Gillmore is a good bet to put up numbers every week just due to the extreme lack of options in Baltimore. Worth a shot if needed this week.
Kansas City Chiefs D/ST. The Chiefs defense is returning to form as a fantasy relevant unit. Facing a San Diego Chargers team that has struggled so far, this could be a nice unit to stream this week. They're available in many leagues, and have the potential to help your team both this week and in future weeks.
Tampa Bay Buccaneers D/ST. The Eagles are likely to start Mark Sanchez at quarterback this week. If Sanchez struggles, this defense could feast. Well worth a look if you need a spot start.
Hop this helps, and happy streaming!
Another week, another injury! Now, Andrew Luck will miss two to six weeks with a kidney injury. To add to that, James Starks has surpassed Eddie Lacy on the Packers depth chart. Also, Dion Lewis has torn his ACL and will miss the remainder of the season for New England. Ben Roethlisberger has a sprain and will miss a few weeks as well. Clearly, the injuries continue. Clearly, many fantasy teams still need some help. Are you looking for some streaming help? Well here are some suggestions.
Joe Flacco, QB, Baltimore Ravens. Flacco is probably unowned in your fantasy league. However, he plays a Jacksonville Jaguars unit that has given up a decent number of points to quarterbacks....in Baltimore. Flacco has been decent in Baltimore, and has consistently put up decent numbers at home so far this season. I expect him to continue that streak. If you need a one week option at QB, Flacco could be your man.
Blake Bortles, QB, Jacksonville Jaguars. If Bortles is available, then Flacco shouldn't be your man. Bortles should. He faces one tough defense for the remainder of the season, and should put up decent numbers against Baltimore. Heck, he could put up decent numbers for your team for the rest of the year. If you've got an injured QB and you need help now, pick up Blake Bortles!
Ryan Fitzpatrick, QB, New York Jets. HOW IS FITZPATRICK NOT OWNED IN MORE LEAGUES? The guy is having a solid season, yet he's available in far too many leagues. He's not a guy that will put up elite numbers, but he will consistently get you just enough points to hold down a starting role at QB and not cost you matchups if the rest of your team is good. He won't win you games on his own, but he won't lose matchups for you either. He's a good bet if help is needed.
Tony Romo, QB, Dallas Cowboys. Romo could be just a week away from returning to Dallas' starting lineup. If you've got an open roster spot, add him now and beat the rush.
LeGarrette Blount, RB, New England Patriots/Patriots Running backs. If Blount is available thanks to Belichick's record with running backs, now is the time to grab him. He should benefit most from the injury to Dion Lewis. That being said, James White is a good option as well. Some might take Bolden over White, but I think White will be a better option than Bolden personally. But if you need help, this is one backfield to look at.
James Starks, RB, Green Bay Packers. You've seen the news about Starks supplanting Lacy as the #1 back in Green Bay. This will still be a time share, and I still expect Lacy to put up decent numbers at times, but Starks should be a solid asset for any fantasy team at the moment. If he's there, grab him.
DeAngelo Williams, RB, Pittsburgh Steelers. If Williams is available in your league still, you have a good chance of winning your league. Answer the following questions. What professional sport recently faced major publicity over deflated balls (answer: football)? Who is the coach of the New England Patriots (answer: Bill Belichick)? What team does Todd Gurley play for (answer St. Louis Rams)? If DeAngelo Williams is available in your league, and you answered these questions correctly, congratulations. You're probably already leading your league. Go get Williams if he is available. Now.
Karlos Williams, RB, Buffalo Bills. Williams is putting up RB1 numbers in some games even with limited carries. With LeSean McCoy consistently on the injury report, it's time for Williams to be rostered in far more leagues. If he's available in yours, give him a spot on your roster.
Joique Bell, RB, Detroit Lions. Bell is a bit more of a desperation play at RB, but he's showing some signs of life finally. More importantly, last year, he ended the season on a hot streak. Will he do the same thing this year? If you're grasping at straws, Bell is worth a gamble.
Michael Crabtree, WR, Oakland Raiders. Crabtree is actually putting up a pretty solid stretch of late. He's seeing a similar number of targets to Amari Cooper, and he's got a chance to put up a solid start every week. If you need a streaming guy, he's a good option.
Jordan Matthews, WR, Philadelphia Eagles. Matthews finally had a big game, and he's available in a lot of leagues. He's not going to be a good option every week, but I like him against the Dolphins this week. He has the potential to put up a solid game this week.
Davante Adams, WR, Green Bay Packers. I'm trading away James Jones wherever I can this week. Why? Davante Aams. Adams is beginning to emerge as the #2 option in the Green Bay backfield, and should put up similar numbers to those put up by Jones at the beginning of the year. Jones will still shine in some games, but Adams is your best bet down the stretch. As a possible waiver claim, he could help win your league.
Dorial Green-Beckham, WR, Tennessee Titans. Green-Beckham is finally starting to break out. He was one of the best WRs in this year's class, and finally he's adjusting to the NFL game. Going into the season, most scouts/analysts realized that he would take time to develop into an NFL WR. However, once he fully breaks out, the guy has Randy Moss-type upside. Is that breakout starting? It could be. Buy in now.
Robert Woods, WR, Buffalo Bills. The Jets regularly give up good numbers to #2 WRs this season. Will this week be the same? Woods is a gamble, but one that could pay off against the Jets. If you're in a gambling mood, give Woods a shot.
Eric Ebron, TE, Detroit Lions. To begin the season, I relied heavily on tight ends who faced the Raiders. Lately, the Packers have played an Oakland role against TEs, giving up big numbers to the position over the past three weeks. Ebron has tons of upside, and could have a breakout game against the Packers this week. If you need an option, give him a shot.
Kyle Rudolph, TE, Minnesota Vikings. Speaking of the Raiders, Kyle Rudolph faces the Raiders this week! If your fantasy TE plays Oakland, you're likely expecting a good week. If you're in dire need of a TE, give Ruldoph a starting gig on your roster for this week and enjoy the show.
Austin Seferian-Jenkins, TE, Tampa Bay Buccaneers. ASJ has the upside to be a special, special player. How special? The guy should be a top ten tight end...if he can ever get healthy. He's close to returning from a week 2 injury, and could help your team as soon as he returns. If you have room, give the guy a spot.
Pittsburgh Steelers D/ST. The Steelers are playing the Cleveland Browns. Enough said. The Steelers may have some major injuries on offense, but the Cleveland Browns do not have an offense. All lineups incomplete. I expecct Pittsburgh's defense to put up solid numbers this week.
Baltimore Ravens D/ST. Another good streaming option, the Ravens could put up some decent numbers against Jacksonville. I think Pittsburgh is the better option from a purely defensive perspective, but Pittsburgh's offense could also give up some costly turnovers that may lead to points, and Baltimore could turn out to be the better start in this case.
Hope this helps, and good luck this week!
Another week, another season-ending injury. This week, both Le'Veon Bell and Steve Smith saw their seasons end as a result of injuries. With the league focusing on making things safer for players, we are now seeing a decline in the number of concussions...shadowed by a seemingly major rise in lower-body injuries to players. Is this a coincidence or will it become a larger trend? This will be something that is interesting to track in the future. However, for now, you're probably looking for some fantasy help. Here are some of my suggestions.
Derek Carr, QB, Oakland. If Carr is still available, grab him, since he is going to be your best option at the position if you need to add somebody. He's looked solid with the Raiders this year, and could be a starter on at least some fantasy teams. If you need help and he's on waivers, get him on your team.
Blaine Gabbert, QB, San Francisco 49ers. Kaepernick has been benched in favor of Gabbert. While you're in trouble if you need to start Gabbert, he's at least there as an option. I don't expect huge numbers from him, but if you're reaching deep, Gabbert is an option. In many leagues, the market is pretty slim at this point, so roll the dice here.
DeAngelo Williams, RB, Pittsburgh Steelers. Somebody probably dropped Williams after Le'Veon Bell's suspension ended. Now that Bell's season has ended, get Williams on your team. This is a move that could help you win a league. This is the first move you want to make this week.
Jeremy Langford, RB, Chicago Bears. With Forte injured and expected to miss at least one or two weeks, Langford could be an option here. If nothing else, this is a good opportunity for Chicago to see what they have in Langford. Give him a shot if necessary.
Chris Polk, RB, Houston Texans. This is a speculative add, but Alfred Blue was average-at-best while replacing Arian Foster last week. Polk could earn more playing time, and that in turn could make him a worthwhile investment at RB. If nothing else, he's worth a grab to sit on your bench in case he takes over.
Tavon Austin, WR, St. Louis Rams. Tavon Austin had a solid, solid game last week. While he's very big-play dependent, he also has the upside to be a nice flex play on a near weekly basis moving forward. If you lost Steve Smith to injury, Austin could be a nice fill-in.
Ted Ginn Jr., WR, Carolina Panthers. I love Ginn Jr.'s potential to continue to perform this season. He's had a breakout season of sorts, and has at least produced consistently in a week-to-week fashion. He's not a guy that will win you a matchup on his own, but he'll at least provide consistent points.
Robert Woods, WR, Buffalo Bills. Woods is here because of the injury bug in Buffalo. Watkins and Harvin are still beat up, and Woods looked good before Buffalo's bye. While the WR position in Buffalo has been a revolving door of sorts this year, Woods is worth a long hard look, especially in deeper leagues.
Vernon Davis, TE, Denver Broncos. News flash. Vernon Davis will now be catching passes from Peyton Manning. If anything can save his season, that fact can. Davis could be available in your league. If he is, get him on your roster, especially if you need TE help. He might not produce big numbers, but the potential is there.
Heath Miller, TE, Pittsburgh Steelers. Miller has faded in recent weeks. However, with Roethlisberger back in Pittsburgh, Miller once again had a big week. Miller's best weeks of the season came with Le'Veon Bell missing from the lineup. Coincidence or not, if Miller is available, he's a potential source of help for your fantasy team.
Ben Watson, TE, New Orleans Saints. Watson is finally looking like the #1 TE in New Orleans. With the New Orleans offense finally coming to life, it's a good time to own Watson.
Atlanta Falcons D/ST. The Falcons are facing a 49ers offense lacking Vernon Davis and starting Blaine Gabbert this week. With Gabbert lacking options to throw to, this could be a big game for the Atlanta defense.
Jacksonville Jaguars D/ST. The Jaguars are facing a Jets offense with lots of question marks, mainly surrounding injuries at the QB position. That could make for a big week for this unit. The Jaguars have some great pieces on their defense, and this is one week where they could put up some solid numbers.
Hope this helps, and happy streaming!
Write something about yourself. No need to be fancy, just an overview.
