There were some unheralded heroes this week. There always are. Let’s take a look at them and see if they are worthy of your fantasy rosters.
.
Bye Week: Atlanta, Denver, New Orleans, Washington
.
Get ‘em
Cameron Brate, TE, Tampa Bay Buccaneers – 4 of 6 for 80 yards, TD. 2nd straight game with a score.
Jaron Brown, WR, Arizona Cardinals – 8 of 12 targets for 105 yards. 27 yards and a score last week and 73 the week prior.
Alex Collins, RB, Baltimore Ravens – 9 carries for 82 yards for second straight week.
Andy Dalton, QB, Cincinnati Bengals – 286 yards, 4 TDs, 29 rushing. Solid QB2.
Wayne Gallman, RB, New York Giants – 50 total yards and a TD. Likely gets a crack at the lead back gig.
Adam Humphries, WR, Tampa Bay Buccaneers – 6 of 7 for 70 yards. 6 for 68 last week. Worth a look in PPR leagues.
Will Fuller, WR, Houston Texans – 4 of 6 targets for 35 yards and 2 TDs.
Aaron Jones, RB, Green Bay Packers – 13 carries for 49 yards after both Ty Montgomery (ribs) and Jamaal Williams (knee) were injured. If he’s next man up, he’s worth an add.
Cooper Kupp, WR, Los Angeles Rams – 5 of 7 targets for 60 yards, TD. Bench depth.
Latavius Murray, RB, Minnesota Vikings – 29  total yards. Will have a larger role if Dalvin Cook (knee) misses any time.
Wendell Smallworld, RB, Philadelphia Eagles – 79 total yards and a score.
Deshaun Watson, QB, Houston Texans – 283 yards and 4 TD passes, 24 yards and a TD rushing.
Kendall Wright, WR, Chicago Bears – Caught all four targets for 51 yards and a score. Turned in a dud last week, but he’s still a solid bench option. Chicago has to pass to somebody.
.
Don’t Sweat ‘em
Brice Butler, WR, Dallas Cowboys – 12 yards and a TD. Second straight game with a score, but still not a reliable fantasy option.
A.J. Derby, TE, Denver Broncos – 4 of 6 for 75 yards, TD.
Austin Ekeler, RB, Los Angeles Chargers – 58 total yards, TD.
Devin Funchess, WR, Carolina Panthers – 7 of 9 targets for 70 yards and 2 TDs. Averaging 65.3 yards in his last three games.
James Hanna, TE, Dallas Cowboys – 28-yard, TD.
Johnny Holton, WR, Oakland Raiders – 64-yard TD.
O.J. Howard, TE, Tampa Bay Buccaneers – 2 of 4 targets for 63 yards, TD. Put him on your watch list.
Tyler Kroft, TE, Cincinnati Bengals – 6 of 7 targets for 68 yards, 2 TDs.
Dion Lewis, RB, New England Patriots – 27 total yards, TD.
Elijah McGuire, RB, New York Jets – 131 total yards and a score. Earned a larger role, but will be behind Bilal Powell and Matt Forte (when healthy).
J.D. McKissic, RB, Seattle Seahawks – 65 total yards and TD. Even with Carson getting injured, he’s not likely to be a consistent contributor.
JuJu Smith-Schuster, WR, Pittsburgh Steelers – 3 of 4 targets for 47 yards, TD.
Fozzy Whitaker, RB, Carolina Panthers – 3 catches for 34 yards, TD.

    Not feeling Mitch Trubisky given their lack of weapons. I lean towards Fuller over Kupp.
