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: Buffalo, Cincinnati, Dallas, Seattle
Jacoby Brissett, QB, Indianapolis Colts – Titans have already allowed 12 passing TDs.
Brian Hoyer, QB, San Francisco 49ers – Averaging 306.3 yards in past three games.
Josh McCown, QB, New York Jets – Another 300-yard passer against New England?
Jamaal Charles, RB, Denver Broncos – Only gets a handful of carries, but could produce against the Giants who are allowing 139 yards per game.
Adrian Peterson, RB, Arizona Cardinals – New Orleans was a disaster. He’ll get more touches with Arizona.
Samaje Perine, RB, Washington Redskins – Should get most of the ground work against the Niners
Taylor Gabriel, WR, Atlanta Falcons – Should see extra targets with Sanu out.
Marquise Goodwin, WR, Washington Redskins – 116 yards last week.
Roger Lewis, WR, New York Giants – Eli has to throw to somebody.
Austin Hooper, TE, Atlanta Falcons – Should see extra targets with Sanu out.
Zach Miller, TE, Chicago Bears – Should be heavily targeted by Mitchell Trubisky.
David Njoku, TE, Cleveland Browns – Dart throw play with three TDs in last four games.
Baltimore Ravens Defense – Faces Chicago.
Green Bay Packers – Faces Minnesota. QB play is a question and ground game likely played above the norm last week.
Washington Redskins Defense – Faces San Fran.

Get ‘em

Javorius Allen, RB, Baltimore Ravens – 85 total yards, TD. Worth and add if he got dropped.
Danny Amendola, WR, New England Patriots – Likely only available in smaller leagues. If he’s there, grab him, especially PPR. 8 catches for 77 yards.

Jacoby Brissett, QB, Indianapolis Colts – 314 yards passing, 14 yards and a score on the ground.

Ed Dickson, TE, Carolina Panthers – Caught all five targets for 175 yards. 62 yards last week.

Aaron Jones, RB, Green Bay Packers – 125 yards and a TD on 6.6 ypc.
Roger Lewis, WR, New York Giants – 29-yard TD. He’s the only healthy Giants receiver.
