Cameron Brate, TE, Tampa Bay Bucaneers – Five catches, 46 yards, 2 TDs. Decent TE2.
Orleans Darkwa, RB, New York Giants – 62 total yards, TD. With Shane Vereen out and Rashad Jennings banged up, Darkwa is a solid add.
Jordan Howard, RB, Chicago Bears – 92 total yards. Looking like the number one pick up this week.
Zach Miller, TE, Chicago Bears – Eight catches, 78 yards, 2 TEs. Solid TE2.
Terrelle Pryor, WR, Cleveland Browns – 35 passing yards, 21 rushing yards with TD, eight catches for 144 yards.

Kenjon Barner, RB, Philadelphia Eagles – 42 yards, TD.
Jamison Crowder, WR, Washington Redskins – 4 catches, 78 yards, TD. Has scored in consecutive weeks. PPR league consideration.

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
Jay Ajayi, RB, Miami Dolphins – 45 total yards, but lost a fumble. Could be worth an add if Arian Foster misses time.
Matt Asiata, RB, Minnesota Vikings – Had 25 total yards. Could see a lot of work if Adrian Peterson misses time.
Kenny Britt, WR, St, Louis Rams – Six catches, 94 yards. Four for 67 last week.

Vance McDonald, TE, San Francisco 49ers – 75-yard TD. Scored in both games.
Jerick McKinnon, RB, Minnesota Vikings – He hasn’t done much to date, but if Adrian Peterson misses time, he could see more touches.
Dennis Pitta, TE, Baltimore Ravens – Nine catches, 102 yards. TE2 consideration.
Jacob Tamme, TE, Atlanta Falcons – 5 catches, 75 yards, TD. 6 catches for 51 yards last week.
Clive Walford, TE, Oakland Raiders – Six catches, 50 yards, TD.
Fozzy Whittaker, RB, Carolina Panthers – 131 total yards. Add if Jonathon Stewart misses time.
Tyrell Williams, WR, San Diego Chargers – Three catches, 61 yards, TD. 71 yards last week.
.
Don’t Sweat ‘em
Danny Amendola, WR, New England Patriots – 50 yards, 2 TDs. Never a consistent option.
Cole Beasley, WR, Dallas Cowboys – Five catches, 75 yards. Worth consideration in PPR leagues.
Tyler Boyd, WR, Cincinnati Bengals – Six catches, 78 yards.
Jaron Brown, WR, Arizona Cardinals – Two catches, 78 yards, TD.
Sammie Coates, WR, Pittsburgh Steelers – 2 catches, 97 yards.
Jamison Crowder, WR, Washington Redskins – Six catches for 39 yards, TD.
Kenyan Drake, RB, Miami Dolphins – 18 total yards, TD. Maybe worth an add if Arian Foster misses time. Ajayi may get more looks though.
Devin Funchesz, WR, Carolina Panthers – 2 catches, 19 yards, TD.
Marquise Goodwin, WR, Buffalo Bills – 112 yards in two games, 84 on one catch. Did not catch a ball Week 1.

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

Phillip Dorsett, WR, Indianapolis Colts – Solid option for deeper leagues. Four catches for 94 yards.
Will Fuller, WR, Houston Texans – Five catches for 107 yards, TD. Led Texans with 11 targets.
Chris Hogan, WR, New England Patriots – Three catches for 60 yards and a score. Will be even more attractive when Tom Brady returns.
Eli Rogers, WR, Pittsburgh Steelers – Six catches for 59 yards, TD. Nice short term option while Markus Wheaton is banged up. Can put up numbers in the slot for Pittsburgh.
Mohamed Sanu, WR, Atlanta Falcons – Already owned in large leagues, but worth considering in 10-team leagues. Five catches for 80 yards and a score. He was spotted limping so keep an eye on him.
Tajae Sharpe, WR, Tennessee Titans – Looked good in his NFL debut. Seven catches for 76 yards.
Alex Smith, QB, Kansas City Chiefs – Solid QB2. 363 yards, 2 TDs. Also ran a score in.

Shaun Draughn, RB, San Francisco 49ers – 18 yards rush and receiving, TD.

Eddie Royal, WR, Chicago Bears – Four catches for 57 yards, TD.
Chris Thompson, RB, Washington Redskins – 23 yards and a TD with  16 receiving yards.

.
Get ‘em
Kirk Cousins, QB, Washington Redskins: 319 yards, 4 TDs, rushing TD, consecutive 300 yard games.
Alfred Blue, RB, Houston Texans: 107 yards. Healthy again. Should see heavy workload.
Donald Brown, RB, San Diego Chargers: 104 total yards, solid option if Gordon misses time.
Rashad Jennings, RB, New York Giants: 107 yards, TD, disappointing season, but solid the past two games.
Christine Michael, RB, Seattle Seahawks: 84 yards, most effective Seattle back. Earned a start next week.
Bilal Powell, RB, New York Jets: 79 total yards, TD. Third straight game with a score. Nice PPR option.
James White, RB, New England Patriots: 77 total yards, TD. Safest RB play for NE, especially in PPR leagues.
Karlos Williams, RB, Buffalo Bills: 41 yards. Didn’t see many touches, but will likely be top option if McCoy is out
Will Tye, TE, New York Giants: 43 yards and TD, fourth straight game with 70 yards and/or TD.
.
Don’t Sweat ‘em
Teddy Bridgewater, QB, Minnesota Vikings: 231 yards, 4 touchdowns, 17 rushing yards and TD.
Brock Osweiler, QB, Denver Broncos:  296 yards, 3 TDs, 19 rushing yards and TD.
Cameron Artis-Payne, RB, Carolina Panthers: 93 total yards, only grab if Stewart misses again.
Mike Gillislee, RB, Buffalo Bills: 81 yards, TD, Karlos Williams will get first crack if McCoy is out.
Joey Iosefa, RB, New England Patriots: 51 yards, led NE in carries, but this is a volatile backfield.
Jermaine Kearse, WR, Seattle Seahawks:  110 yards. Second straight game with seven catches and at least 74 yards. He’s close to an add.
Jerick McKinnon, RB, Minnesota Vikings: 86 total yards, TD
Corey Brown, WR, Carolina Panthers: 51 yards, TD
Kenny Britt, WR, St. Louis Rams: 2 catches, 71 yards, TD – only 2nd TD this year and only third time topping 65 yards.

There were some unheralded heroes on Sunday. There always are. Let’s take a look at them and see if they are worthy of your fantasy rosters.
.
Brian Hoyer, QB, Houston Texans
Hoyer threw for 293 yards and three touchdowns. He’s probably not worth adding at this stage of the season.
Ruling:  Don’t Sweat ‘em.
.
Bilal Powell, RB, New York Jets
Powell ran for 17 yards and caught eight passes for 91 yards and a touchdown. Fluke performance.
Ruling:  Don’t Sweat ‘em.
.
James White, RB, New England Patriots
White ran for four yards, but caught 10 passes for 115 yards and a touchdown. He should see more looks going forward. Solid PPR add.
Ruling:  Get ‘em.
.
Brandon Coleman, WR, New Orleans Saints
Coleman caught four passes for 73 yards and a touchdown. It was his first touchdown since Week 1.
Ruling:  Don’t Sweat ‘em.
.
Dorial Green-Beckham, WR, Tennessee Titans
Green-Beckham caught five passes for 119 yards and a score. Look for him to make great strides next year, but he’s not a reliable option.
Ruling:  Don’t Sweat ‘em.
.
Brian Hartline, WR, Cleveland Browns
Hartline caught eight passes for 83 yards. He’s worth a look, particularly in PPR leagues. He’s averaged 7.3 catches for 78 yards in his past three games and scored a pair of touchdowns the week prior.
Ruling:  Get ‘em.
.
DeVante Parker, WR, Miami Dolphins
Parker caught three passes for 63 yards and a touchdown. He scored last week as well. I’d still be hesitant adding him during the fantasy playoffs.
Ruling:  Don’t Sweat ‘em.
.
Scott Chandler, TE, New England Patriots
Chandler caught four passes for 61 yards and a touchdown. He’s worth adding while Gronk is out.
Ruling:  Get ‘em.
.

There were some unheralded heroes on Sunday. There always are. Let’s take a look at them and see if they are worthy of your fantasy rosters.

If you lost Jimmy Graham, here are some options.
.
Kirk Cousins, QB, Washington Redskins
Cousins threw for 302 yards and a touchdown. He added a rushing score as well. He’s not a reliable fantasy threat.
Ruling:  Don’t Sweat ‘em.
.
Matt Hasselbeck, QB, Indianapolis Colts
Hasselbeck threw for 315 yards and a pair of touchdowns.  He has solid weapons, but is tough to rely on this time of year.
Ruling:  Don’t Sweat ‘em.
.
Brandon Bolden, RB, New England Patriots
Bolden ran for 11 yards and caught four passes for 84 yards and a touchdown. He should be more involved due to all of the Patriots’ injuries, but he’s a risky play.
Ruling:  Don’t Sweat ‘em.
.
Tevin Coleman, RB, Atlanta Falcons
Coleman ran for 110 yards replacing Devonta Freeman (concussion). He should return to backup duties next week. Coleman is a handcuff. If you own him, don’t drop him until Freeman is cleared.
Ruling:  Don’t Sweat ‘em.
.
David Johnson, RB, Arizona Cardinals
Johnson had 21 yards and a touchdown rushing and two catches for eight yards. With Chris Johnson (knee) and Andre Ellington (foot) banged up, Johnson is one to keep an eye on.
Ruling: Get ‘em.
.
Alfred Morris, RB, Washington Redskins
Morris ran for 78 yards and added 12 receiving yards. If someone dropped him after last week’s performance, grab him. He’s still worth a roster spot.
Ruling:  Get ‘em.
.
Theo Riddick, RB, Detroit Lions
Riddick ran for six yards, but caught five passes for 62 yards and a touchdown. He’s only worth using as a flex play in PPR leagues as Detroit implements a three-headed monster. Ameer Abdullah is the only Lions’ running back to own.
Ruling:  Don’t Sweat ‘em.
.
Spencer Ware, RB, Kansas City Chiefs
Ware ran for 114 yards and a touchdown in place of Charcandrick West (hamstring). He’s worth grabbing in case West can’t go again.
Ruling:  Get ‘em.
.
Doug Baldwin, WR, Seattle Seahawks
Baldwin caught six passes for 145 yards and three touchdowns. He’s definitely worth a roster spot, particularly in PPR leagues. Baldwin will be busy with Jimmy Graham out for the season (knee).
Ruling:  Get ‘em.
.
Cole Beasley, WR, Dallas Cowboys
Beasley caught six passes for 44 yards and a touchdown. He’s not worth adding with Tony Romo out.
Ruling:  Don’t Sweat ‘em.
.
Dontrelle Inman, WR, San Diego Chargers
Inman caught five passes for 65 yards and a touchdown. He faces Denver this week so he’s not a good play, but he’s worth owning.
Ruling:  Get ‘em.
.
Jermaine Kearse, WR, Seattle Seahawks
Kearse caught four passes for 47 yards and a pair of touchdowns. He’s not a consistent option, but he should also see additional looks with Graham out.
Ruling:  Don’t Sweat ‘em.
.
Seth Roberts, WR, Oakland Raiders
Roberts caught six passes for 113 yards and three touchdowns. This was a fluke performance.
Ruling:  Don’t Sweat ‘em.
.
Markus Wheaton, WR, Pittsburgh Steelers
Wheaton went off for nine catches for 201 yards and a touchdown. Amazing performance, but he isn’t a reliable option as he’s typically beyond Brown, Bryant, Williams and Miller in pecking order.
Ruling:  Don’t Sweat ‘em.
.
Cameron Brate, TE, Tampa Bay Buccaneers
Brate caught five passes for 53 yards and a touchdown. It was his second straight game with a score, but I’d look elsewhere.
Ruling:  Don’t Sweat ‘em.
.
Scott Chandler, TE, New England Patriots
Chandler caught five passes for 58 yards and a touchdown. With Gronk banged up, Chandler is worth a look. Brady has to throw to somebody.
.
Ryan Griffin, TE, Houston Texans
Griffin caught four passes for 72 yards and a touchdown. He’s not a fantasy option.
Ruling:  Don’t Sweat ‘em.
.
Vance McDonald, TE, San Francisco 49ers
McDonald caught four passes for 71 yards and a touchdown. It’s his second straight game with a score. McDonald has a nice rapport with Blaine Gabbert, but isn’t a great fantasy option.
Ruling:  Don’t Sweat ‘em.

Johnny Manziel, QB, Cleveland Browns
Johnny Football threw for 372 yards and a touchdown. He added 17 rushing yards. He’s not a fantasy option.
Ruling:  Don’t Sweat ‘em.
.
Kirk Cousins, QB, Washington Redskins
Cousins threw for 324 yards and four touchdowns. At this point there should be better QBs available.
Ruling:  Don’t Sweat ‘em.
.
Danny Amendola, WR, New England Patriots
Amendola caught 10 passes for 79  yards. With Julian Edelman out, Amendola’s value takes a huge leap.
Ruling:  Get ‘em.
.
Dwayne Harris, WR, New  York Giants
Harris caught six passes for 82 yards and a touchdown.  He’s not a consistent option.
Ruling:  Don’t Sweat ‘em.
.
Jamison Crowder, WR, Washington Redskins
Crowder caught five passes for 60 yards and a touchdown. He’s been OK, but isn’t a good fantasy option.
Ruling:  Don’t Sweat ‘em.
.
Brent Celek, TE, Philadelphia Eagles
Celek caught four passes for 134 yards. He’s not a consistent option.
Ruling:  Don’t Sweat ‘em.
.
Justin Perillo, TE, Green Bay Packers
Perillo caught five passes for 58 yard and a touchdown. Fluke performance.
Ruling:  Don’t Sweat ‘em.
.
Zach Miller, TE, Chicago Bears
Miller caught five passes for 107 yards and a pair of touchdowns. That’s three scores in two weeks. Keep an eye on him.
Ruling:  Don’t Sweat ‘em.

Shaun Draughn

There were some unheralded heroes on Sunday. There always are. Let’s take a look at them and see if they are worthy of your fantasy rosters.
.
Marcus Mariota, QB, Tennessee Titans
Mariota threw for 371 yards and four touchdowns. He’s a QB2 at best at this point. He’s worth a look during Weeks 11-13 though.
Ruling:  Don’t Sweat ‘em.
.
Shaun Draughn, RB, San Francisco 49ers
Draughn ran for 58 yards and caught four passes for 38 yards. With Carlos Hyde banged up, Draughn is worth a look.
Ruling:  Get ‘em.
.
James Starks, RB, Green Bay Packers
Starks ran for 39 yards and caught six passes for 83 yards and a score. He is definitely worth a roster spot.
Ruling:  Get ‘em.
.
Kenny Britt, WR, St. Louis Rams
Britt caught three of five targets for 87 yards. He only has three good games this year.
Ruling:  Don’t Sweat ‘em.
.
Devin Funchess, WR, Carolina Panthers
Funchess caught three of four targets for 71 yards and  a score. Keep an eye on him in case he figured things out this week, but he hasn’t warranted a roster spot yet.
Ruling:  Don’t Sweat ‘em.
.
Dorial Green-Beckham, WR, Tennessee Titans
Green-Beckham caught five of ten targets for 77 yards. He should see more looks going forward. Only a speculative add at this point.
Ruling:  Don’t Sweat ‘em.
.
Marvin Jones, WR, Cincinnati Bengals
Jones caught five of six targets for 78 yards. He has topped 65 yards and/or scored a touchdown in four of eight games, but he has averaged 24 yards in the other four games. He will have his moments, but he’s a risky play.
Ruling:  Don’t Sweat ‘em.
.
Brandon LaFell, WR, New England Patriots
LaFell caught five of nine targets for 102 yards. He’s tough to rely on as a starter because of the Patriots’ fickle usage of skill players, but he should be owned.
Ruling:  Get ‘em.
.
Kenny Stills, WR, Miami Dolphins
Still caught three of five targets for 74 yards. He’s not a consistent option.
Ruling:  Don’t Sweat ‘em.
.
Bryan Walters, WR, Jacksonville Jaguars
Walters caught five of seven targets for 54 yards and a score. Look elsewhere.
Ruling:  Don’t Sweat ‘em.
.
Owen Daniels, TE, Denver Broncos
Daniels needed some competition (Vernon Davis’ arrival) to break out with six catches for 102 yards and a touchdown. He may be worth grabbing if he became available.
Ruling:  Get ‘em.
