It’s getting ugly out there for many. Bye weeks continue to rage on. Injuries have ravished many. The game that is fantasy football has become not so fantastic for some. We are not quitters though. We will fight till we can’t fight anymore. Let’s get back to work.
We ride at dawn.
Justin Fields – 47% rostered – If you still haven’t picked him if he s available then shame on you. His lowest rush attempt per game is 7, in Week 4. He’s rushed for over 50 yards in the past 5 weeks. Including his colossal 178 yards this past Sunday. Which oh yeah, is an NFL record. And his next two opponents? Detroit and Atlanta. As my man Chip Diamond would say, pshh. Detroit is giving up 413 total yards per game, and Atlanta is giving up 406 yards per game.
Daniel Jones – 40% rostered – Much like Fields, Jones has also used the legs. And even ran for a hundo himself a couple weeks ago. The rushing always gives you a more stable floor.
Jared Goff – 34% rostered – He gets The Bears who have traded away their defense. Who the Dolphins just carved apart. Bears defense has given up an average of 412 total yards the last couple weeks. Hopefully Swift is healthier and more involved as well.
Jimmy Garoppolo – 18% rostered – The Chargers are average at best at times vs opposing QBs. Jimmy one-six has too many weapons at his disposal to not give us his usual 16.
Marcus Mariota – 35% rostered – He torched Carolina last time out and put up 32 fantasy points. Carolina has given up 400 total yards of offense two weeks in a row. While this time it’s likely he doesn’t give you 32, he should be able to support QB2 numbers.
Jeff Wilson Jr – 44.6% rostered – He knows the playbook and was given a good workload in his first game in a Dolphins uniform. Whether it’s a changing of the guard or not, it’s likely the Dolphins can provide relevance for 2 backs in this system, next up a Cleveland defense who can be stingy but also susceptible to the run.
Rachaad White– 20.3% rostered – It’s pretty slim pickings for running backs these days. We have had him on here for weeks with nothing ever coming of it. 38% snap share won’t cut it. Buuuuuut, the Tampa offense needs a spark. It’s a dysfunctional mess at times. Fournette has not looked great the last couple weeks either. Regardless of Lenny’s health, at some point, the Bucs have to get White more involved.
Isiah Pacheco– 27% rostered – This one is another one we have said for weeks but it’s gained little traction. He is “starting” now. But still it’s only basically a split of the half of the snaps McKinnon doesn’t see. Tennessee was a tough matchup. Just watching him, you see why Andy likes him. Big, fast, and runs very hard. With some lighter matchups upcoming on the horizon, we likely see them get back to running a little more. He will get his chance soon.
Chubba Hubbard – 30% rostered – is down to 30% rostered. He still likely gets a decent workload upon return, baring they are getting blown out.
Kyren Williams – 14-% rostered – Same reason as last week. The rams RBs are a mess. He has a wide open door on day 1.
Notables– Isiah Spiller saw 7 carries in a close game.
Mecole Hardman – 36% rostered – 4 weeks now in a row of over 12 fantasy points. As Toney gets more involved maybe he sees a decrease but for now, he’s definitely warranting flex play usage.
Terrace Marshall – 8% rostered – Fun fact, he played with Justin Jefferson and Ja’Marr Chase at LSU. He also has not had the same success as the other two. He has now however seen 15 targets in the last two weeks.
Wan’Dale Robinson – 20% rostered – Coming off a bye the Giants will likely try to get Robinson rolling. The matchup is not great as the Texans have been stingy to opposing WR. Trust Daboll with 2 weeks to prepare.
A deeper throw for me is Jarvis Landry (Michael Thomas is out for year).
Greg Dulcich – 28% Rostered- double-digit weeks 3 weeks in a row is a miracle for TEs this season. Maybe he just is the new Patty French Fries.
Cade Otton – 5% Rostered- He caught the game-winner from Tom and added in 68 yards on 6 targets. If Tom’s trust grows he can be another good streaming option most weeks.
