Jacquizz Rodgers running
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.
Get ‘em
Martavis Bryant, WR, Pittsburgh Steelers – 4 of 6 targets for 40 yards, TD. Speculative add if JuJu Smith-Schuster (hamstring) remains out.
Rex Burkhead, RB, New England Patriots – 53 total yards, 2 TDs. Hard to start, but should be rostered.
Corey Coleman, QB, Cleveland Browns – 3 of 8 targets for 64 yards. Averaging 72 yards in the last two games.
Marquise Goodwin, WR, San Francisco 49ers – 4 of 6 targets for 78 yards. Averaging 76.3 yards in his last three games.
Case Keenum, QB, Minnesota Vikings – 282 yards, 2 TDs passing and 20 yards and a TD running. QB2 option.
Josh McCown, QB, New York Jets – 3007 yards, 3 TDs passing and 28 rushing yards.
Paul Richardson, WR, Seattle Seahawks – 4 of 7 targets for 70 yards. Averaging 62.7 yards in his last six games.
Jacquizz Rodgers, RB, Tampa Bay Buccaneers – 37 total yards. Worth adding if Doug Martin (concussion) misses next week.
Don’t Sweat ‘em
Peyton Barver, RB, Tampa Bay Buccaneers – 5 carries for 7 yards and 2 TDs. Fluke game.
Tyler Boyd, WR, Cincinnati Bengals – 2 of 2 targets for 17 yards, TD.
Jaron Brown, WR, Arizona Cardinals – 52-yard TD.
Bennie Fowler III, WR, Denver Broncos – 3 of 4 targets for 33 yards, TD.
Kenny Golladay, WR, Detroit Lions – 2 of 4 targets for 61 yards. Averaging 59 yards in the last three games, but only two catches a game.
Brett Hundley, QB, Green Bay Packers – 245 yards, 3 TDs. Hopefully he can build on this performance.
Dontrelle Inman, WR, Chicago Bears – 4 of 9 targets for 64 yards. Averaging 65 yards in his last three games. 14-team and/or DFS option.
Zay Jones, WR, Buffalo Bills – 3 of 10 targets for 33 yards, TD. 14-team and/or DFS option.
Jermaine Kearse, WR, New York Jets – 7 of 11 targets for 105 yards and a TD.
Cody Latimer, WR, Denver Broncos – 3 of 4 targets for 48 yards, TD.
Louis Murphy, WR, San Francisco 49ers- 2 of 4 targets for 14 yards, TD.
Cordarrelle Patterson, WR, Oakland Raiders – 3 of 4 targets for 72 yards. Possible DFS option next week with Crabtree facing possible suspension and Cooper injured.
Josh Reynolds, WR, Los Angeles Rams – 4 of 6 targets for 37 yards, TD.
Ricky Seals-Jones, TE, Arizona Cardinals – 4 of 6 targets for 72 yards, TD. He scored twice last week, but I’m not ready to commit to him yet.
Rod Smith, RB, Dallas Cowboys – 48 total yards, TD. Dallas is hard to trust right now.
Julius Thomas, TE, Miami Dolphins – 5 of 6 targets for 52 yards.
Nick Vannett, TE, Seattle Seahawks – 2 of 4 targets for 29 yards, TD.
Albert Wilson, WR, Kansas City Chiefs – 3 of 7 targets for 36 yards, TD.
