There were some unusual heroes this week. There always are. Let’s take a look at them and see if they are worthy of your fantasy rosters.
.
Ryan Tannehill, QB, Miami Dolphins
Ryan Tannehill threw for 244 yards and a pair of touchdowns. He added 49 yards on the ground. In his past two games Tannehill is averaging 261 passing yards, two passing touchdowns and 42 rushing yards. He’s a decent QB2.
Ruling: Get ‘em.
.
Anthony Dixon, RB, Buffalo Bills
Anthony Dixon had 51 rushing yards and 15 receiving yards. He got extra work with C.J. Spiller and Fred Jackson going down. He should be worth an add as the Bills’ running back situation gets sorted out.
Ruling: Get ‘em.
.
Bryce Brown, RB, Buffalo Bills
Bryce Brown was a healthy inactive this week, but should see action due to the injuries of Spiller and Fred Jackson.
Ruling: Get ‘em.
.
Denard Robinson, RB, Jacksonville Jaguars
Denard Robinson ran for 127 yards and a touchdown. With a performance like that it would be hard not to add him.
Ruling: Get ‘em.
.
Tre Mason, RB, St. Louis Rams
Tre Mason ran for 85 yards and a touchdown as he has unseated Zac Stacy. He should be added.
Ruling: Get ‘em.
.
Corey Fuller, WR, Detroit Lions
Corey Fuller caught three of five targets for 44 yards and a touchdown. He’s not on the fantasy radars yet.
Ruling: Don’t Sweat ‘em.
.
Odell Beckham, Jr., WR, New York Giants
Odell Beckham, Jr. caught four of six targets for 34 yards and two touchdowns. He has three touchdowns in the past three games. He’s worth adding with Victor Cruz down.
Ruling: Get ‘em.
.
Charles Clay, TE, Miami Dolphins
Charles Clay caught four of five targets for 58 yards and a touchdown. He’s not a bad second tight end option.
Ruling: Get ‘em.
.
Gavin Escobar, TE, Dallas Cowboys
Gavin Escobar caught all three of his targets for 65 yards and a couple of touchdowns. I wouldn’t add him just yet.
Ruling: Don’t Sweat ‘em.
.
Jeff Cumberland, TE, New York Jets
Jeff Cumberland caught three of four targets for 50 yards and a touchdown. I’m not ready to pencil him in as a fantasy threat.
Ruling: Don’t Sweat ‘em.
