Sometimes because of match-ups you have to roll out less than ideal lineups, especially when your players are nicked up. That’s the nature of the beast. Sometimes you need a fantasy gem to be successful. Here are some of the under the radar players that could possibly pull out a win for you.

Bye Week: Detroit, Houston
.
Blake Bortles, QB, Jacksonville Jaguars – Colts rank 30th against the pass.
Jared Goff, QB, Los Angeles Rams – Cardinals rank 26th against the pass and have allowed 13 touchdowns.
Brett Hundley, QB, Green Bay Packers – Saints rank 28th against the pass. Hundley has the weapons to work with.
Jamaal Charles, RB, Denver Broncos – Flex play against the Bolts, who are allowing 152.5 yards per game.
Marlon Mack, RB, Indianapolis Colts – Jags allowing 145.7 yards per game. Robert Turbin is injured so Mack should get a few more touches. Gore gets a bump in value as well.
Latavius Murray, RB, Minnesota Vikings – Ravens rank 30th against the run.
Eddie Lacy and Thomas Rawls, RBs, Seattle Seahawks – Giants rank 25th against the run. One or both could be a flex play. Risky options though.
Cole Beasley, WR, Dallas Cowboys – San Fran ranks 27th against the pass.
Taylor Gabriel, WR, Atlanta Falcons – I think Julio goes off, but the Pats rank last against the pass with 300 yard passers each game.
Allen Hurns and Marqise Lee, WRs, Jacksonville Jaguars – Colts rank 30th against the pass.
Cooper Kupp, WR, Los Angeles Rams – Cardinals rank 26th against the pass and have allowed 13 touchdowns. Maybe Sammy Watkins makes an appearance.
Martellus Bennett, TE, Green Bay Packers – Young QBs tend to lean on TEs. Saints rank 28th against the pass.
George Kittle, TE, San Francisco 49ers – C.J. Beathard threw Kittle’s way against Washington and will likely focus in against the Cowboys, who have allowed 11 passing scores.
Zach Miller, TE, Chicago Bears – Scored in back-to-back games. Both a little fluky, but he remains a top option for Mitchell Trubisky.
New York Jets Defense – Miami is scoring just 12.2 points per game…and Jay Cutler.
Pittsburgh Steelers Defense – Cincy scoring 16.8 points per game and have 11 turnovers.
Tennessee Titans – Browns are scoring 15.7 points per game. Revolving QB door. League-high 16 turnovers with 18 sacks allowed.
