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.

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.
.
Blake Bortles, QB, Jacksonville Jaguars – Puts up a few scores against the Jets?
Jay Cutler, QB, Miami Dolphins – Picks on Saints’ secondary?
Andy Dalton, QB, Cincinnati Bengals – Feeds A.J. Green against the Browns?
Andre Ellington, RB, Arizona Cardinals – Gets going in the passing game out of the backfield against San Fran?
Jeremy Hill, RB, Cincinnati Bengals – Cheap TD against the Browns?
Chris Ivory, RB, Jacksonville Jaguars – Cheap TD against the Jets?
Geronimo Allison, WR, Green Bay Packers – Only if Randall Cobb is out again.
Devin Funchess, WR, Carolina Panthers – With Olsen out and Benjamin hurting, Funchess should be able to build on 4-58 last week and 4-68 the prior week.
Brandon Marshall, WR, New York Giants – Two catches in two weeks and then 8. Without a ground game, he could continue to see targets.
Jordan Matthews, WR, Buffalo Bills – Will he finally break out for the Bills? They’ll likely have to pass more playing from behind against Atlanta.
Paul Richardson, WR, Seattle Seahawks – Doug Baldwin is hurting. Could Richardson pick up some slack against the Colts?
Vernon Davis, TE, Washington Redskins – Solid option if Jordan Reed is out again.
Zach Miller, TE, Chicago Bears – Will be playing from behind against the Pack, which should mean more looks.
Benjamin Watson, TE, Baltimore Ravens – Two solid games in a row. Can he put up another one against the Steelers?
Cincinnati Bengals Defense – Cleveland should make the Bengals a nice streaming option.
Cleveland Browns – If Cincy plays like the first two weeks, this is a nice value pick.
