2017 Get ‘em or Don’t Sweat ‘em – Week 8

Oct 23, 2017

Dion Lewis
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: Arizona, Green Bay, Jacksonville, Los Angeles Rams, New York Giants, Tennessee
Get ‘em
Robby Anderson, WR, New York Jets – 3 of 5 targets for 35 yards, TD. Averaging 56.2 yards and 0.4 TDs in past five games.
Josh Doctson, WR, Washignton Redskins – 3 of 5 targets for 39 yards, but seems to be trending up.
Ted Ginn, Jr., WR, New Orleans Saints – 7 of 7 targets for 141 yards. Inconsistent, but should at least be on benches.
Tyler Kroft, TE, Cincinnati Bengals – 4 of 4 targets for 23 yards, TD. 3 TDs in last three games. Bye-week option.
Dion Lewis, RB, New England Patriots – 82 total yards. Establishing himself as the best runner of the Patriots’ stable.
Marqise Lee, WR, Jacksonville Jaguars – 4 of 6 targets for 72 yards. Averaging 60.5 yards in last six games. Good bench option after next week’s bye.
Kenny Stills, WR, Miami Dolphins – 6 of 9 targets for 85 yards and 2 TDs. That’s three scores in last two games.
Don’t Sweat ‘em
Travis Benjamin, WR, Los Angeles Chargers – 42-yards TD.
Blake Bortles, WR, New Orleans Saints – 330 yards, TD, 11 rushing yards.
Brandon Coleman, WR, New Orleans Saints – 2 of 3 targets for 31 yards, TD. Has scored in half the games, but doesn’t do much for yardage.
Marquise Goodwin, WR, San Francisco 49ers – 4 of 8 targets for 80 yards. Solid in two of three games so keep him on your radar.
O.J. Howard, TE, Tampa Bay Buccaneers – 6 of 6 targets for 98 yards and two touchdowns. He needs some consistency before adding him.
Allen Hurns, WR, Jacksonville Jaguars – 5 of 8 targets for 101 yards.  Averaging just 49.3 yards in a pass first offense. Bench option following the bye.
Cooper Kupp, WR, Los Angeles Rams – 4 of 10 targets for 51 yards, TD. Averaging 45.1 yards with 3 TD. Bench option following the bye.
Brandon LaFell, WR, Cincinnati Bengals – 4 of 7 targets for 28 yards, TD.
Marcedes Lewis, TE, Jacksonville Jaguars – 2 of 3 targets for 29 yards, TD.
Josh McCown, QB, New York Jets – 209 yards, 3 TDs, rushing TD. Only a desperation play outside of two QB leagues.
Chris Moore, WR, Baltimore Ravens – 2 of 8 targets for 36 yards, TD.
Paul Richardson, WR, Seattle Seahawks – 2 of 2 targets for 61 yards, TD. 3 TDs, but 65 yards is his season high.
Demarcus Robinson, WR, Kansas City Chiefs – 5 of 8 targets for 69 yards.
JuJu Smith-Schuster, WR, Pittsburgh Steelers – 2 of 3 targets for 39 yards, TD. Three TDs. Risky play, but he does have upside if you want to gamble.
Deonte Thompson, WR, Buffalo Bills – 4 of 4 targets for 107 yards.
DeAndre Washington, RB, Oakland Raiders – 40 total yards and a TD. A desperation play if Marshawn Lynch is suspended.
Albert Wilson, WR, Kansas City Chiefs – 63-yard TD.
T.J. Yeldon, RB, Jacksonville Jaguars – 137 total yards, TD. Fournette should be back after the bye.
