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: Detroit, Houston
.
Blake Bortles, QB, Jacksonville Jaguars – Colts rank 30th against the pass.
Jared Goff, QB, Los Angeles Rams – Cardinals rank 26th against the pass and have allowed 13 touchdowns.
Brett Hundley, QB, Green Bay Packers – Saints rank 28th against the pass. Hundley has the weapons to work with.
Jamaal Charles, RB, Denver Broncos – Flex play against the Bolts, who are allowing 152.5 yards per game.
Marlon Mack, RB, Indianapolis Colts – Jags allowing 145.7 yards per game. Robert Turbin is injured so Mack should get a few more touches. Gore gets a bump in value as well.
Latavius Murray, RB, Minnesota Vikings – Ravens rank 30th against the run.
Eddie Lacy and Thomas Rawls, RBs, Seattle Seahawks – Giants rank 25th against the run. One or both could be a flex play. Risky options though.
Cole Beasley, WR, Dallas Cowboys – San Fran ranks 27th against the pass.
Taylor Gabriel, WR, Atlanta Falcons – I think Julio goes off, but the Pats rank last against the pass with 300 yard passers each game.
Allen Hurns and Marqise Lee, WRs, Jacksonville Jaguars – Colts rank 30th against the pass.
Cooper Kupp, WR, Los Angeles Rams – Cardinals rank 26th against the pass and have allowed 13 touchdowns. Maybe Sammy Watkins makes an appearance.
Martellus Bennett, TE, Green Bay Packers – Young QBs tend to lean on TEs. Saints rank 28th against the pass.
George Kittle, TE, San Francisco 49ers – C.J. Beathard threw Kittle’s way against Washington and will likely focus in against the Cowboys, who have allowed 11 passing scores.
Zach Miller, TE, Chicago Bears – Scored in back-to-back games. Both a little fluky, but he remains a top option for Mitchell Trubisky.
New York Jets Defense – Miami is scoring just 12.2 points per game…and Jay Cutler.
Pittsburgh Steelers Defense – Cincy scoring 16.8 points per game and have 11 turnovers.
Tennessee Titans – Browns are scoring 15.7 points per game. Revolving QB door. League-high 16 turnovers with 18 sacks allowed.

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.

.
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.

.
Jay Cutler, QB, Miami Dolphins – Only the Saints an Patriots (6) have allowed more passing TDs than the Jets.
DeShone Kizer, QB, Cleveland Browns – Indy has allowed 307 yards per game, and it’s not like they faced top passing offenses in the Rams and Cardinals.
Deshaun Watson, QB, Houston Texans – Log shot starting against Belichick, but his rushing ability makes him a desperation play.
LeGarrette Blount, RB, Philadelphia Eagles – Hasn’t done much, but the Giants have allowed 133.5 rushing yards per game.
Orleans Darkwa, RB, New York Giants – Paul Perkins has been terrible (1.9 ypc). Maybe Darkwa gets a chance.
Chris Johnson, RB, Arizona Cardinals – Outplayed Kerwynn Williams last week. Could have solidified his role.
Shane Vereen, RB, New York Giants – 12 receptions already. Likely busy once again against the Eagles.
Marvin Jones, WR, Detroit Lions – Lions will have to pass plenty to keep up with Atlanta.
Brandon Marshall, WR, New York Giants – Has been ineffective early, but I don’t think the wheels have fallen completely off.
Eli Rogers, WR, Pittsburgh Steelers – Brown, Bell and Bryant draw the attention. Rogers should be able to feed off it.
Mohamed Sanu, WR, Atlanta Falcons – Julio and the running game command so much attention that Sanu has room to operate.
Kenny Stills, WR, Miami Dolphins – Could hook up with Cutler for a deep one.
Zach Miller, TE, Chicago Bears – 10 catches in two games. Bears need to throw to someone.
Benjamin Watson, TE, Baltimore Ravens – Big game last week. Solid bet for looks against the Jags.
Cleveland Browns Defense – Indy’s offense makes Cleveland attractive as a streaming option.
Miami Dolphins Defense – The Jets make the ‘Fins a nice streaming defense option.

.
Jared Goff, QB, Los Angeles Rams – Plays Redskins, allowed 298 yards to Carson Wentz last week.
Deshaun Watson, QB, Houston Texans – Averaged 867 yards and 10.5 TDs on the ground his final two years of college. Could do damage with feet.
Javorius Allen, RB, Baltimore Ravens – More touches with Woodhead out.
Andre Ellington, RB, Arizona Cardinals – Should see increased looks in passing game with DJ out.
Marlon Mack, RB, Indianapolis Colts – Indy likely gets smoked again. Mack steals from Gore’s plate?
Mike Tolbert, RB, Carolina Panthers – Delivers short TD vs. his former mates?
Eric Decker, WR, Tennessee Titans – Corey Davis saw more targets last week. Decker is a great option in the red zone though.
Allen Hurns, WR, Jacksonville Jaguars – Allen Robinson’s injury should increase Hurns’ workload.
Marqise Lee, WR, Jacksonville Jaguars – See Allen Hurns.
J.J. Nelson, WR, Arizona Cardinals – John Brown out, Nelson’s stock rises.
Mohamed Sanu, WR, Atlanta Falcons – Heavy target volume last week. Should repeat in shootout.
Kenny Stills, WR, Miami Dolphins – Gets loose for a long TD?
Kendall Wright, WR, Chicago Bears – Should be peppered with targets as the WR injuries mount in Chicago.
Cameron Brate, TE, Tampa Bay Buccaneers – Faces the Bears. They allowed 128 yards and a score to Austin Hooper.
Jared Cook, TE, Oakland Raiders – Faces the Jets. They allowed 53 yards and a score to Charles Clay.
Jesse James, TE, Pittsburgh Steelers – Big game last week. MN allowed 54 yards and a TD last week to Coby Fleener.
Los Angeles Chargers Defense – Which Jay Cutler will show up?
Tampa Bay Buccaneers Defense – Chicago looked decent last week. Jury is still out on them.
Tennessee Titans Defense – Jacksonville played well last week. Can they repeat?

.
Mike Glennon, QB, Chicago Bears – Likely playing from behind, which translates into a lot of pass attempts.
DeShone Kizer, QB, Cleveland Browns – Same deal for Kizer. He ran for 992 yards and 18 touchdowns in college. His rushing ability aids his fantasy prospects.
Rex Burkhead, RB, New England Patriots – The Pats backfield is a mystery as usual, but Burkhead could see a slew of targets in the passing game.
Jeremy Hill, RB, Cincinnati Bengals – I know the Bengals have a crowded backfield, but Hill is likely to get the short touchdown opportunities. He has 29 TDs in three years.
Charcandrick West, RB, Kansas City Chiefs – Kareem Hunt will get the first crack, but if he struggles West could find himself in a bigger role.
Jamaal Williams, RB, Green Bay Packers – If converted WR Ty Montgomery struggles, Williams could see additional looks.
Danny Amendola, WR, New England Patriots – There are targets to be had with Julian Edelman out.
Marvin Jones, WR, Detroit Lions – He’s pretty overlooked or a guy that has improved each year, including 930 yards last year. If Patrick Peterson shadows Golden Tate, Jones could be a preferred target.
Sterling Shepard, WR, New York Giants – Odell Beckham could be out of limited (ankle) so Shepard could find himself busier than usual. He scored a TD against Dallas last year.
Kendall Wright, WR, Chicago Bears – Glennon will have to throw to someone. Wright figures to lead the team in targets. Volume based option.
Dwayne Allen, TE, New England Patriots – Anytime you have Brady throwing it to you and Gronk to draw attention away, you’re a good bet to be open in the red zone.
Evan Engram, TE, New York Giants – The Cowboys struggled against tight ends last year. The rookie could make a splash in his debut.
Zach Miller, TE, Chicago Bears – As long as he’s healthy he should give you some low-end value based on volume.
