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.

Terrelle Pryor, WR, Cleveland Browns – 35 passing yards, 21 rushing yards with TD, eight catches for 144 yards.

.
Get ‘em
Jay Ajayi, RB, Miami Dolphins – 45 total yards, but lost a fumble. Could be worth an add if Arian Foster misses time.

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.

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.

Sammie Coates, WR, Pittsburgh Steelers – 2 catches, 97 yards.
Jamison Crowder, WR, Washington Redskins – Six catches for 39 yards, TD.

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.

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.

Ruling:  Don’t Sweat ‘em.
.
Javorius Allen, RB, Baltimore Ravens
Allen ran for 67 yards and caught five passes for 48 yards. Justin Forsett broke his arm so Buck Allen and Terrance West should get to carry the load.
Ruling:  Get ‘em.
.
Ahmad Bradshaw, RB, Indianapolis Colts
Bradshaw ran for 32 yards and caught four passes for 20 yards and a pair of touchdowns. He’s just a handcuff to Frank Gore at this point.
Ruling:  Don’t Sweat ‘em.
.
Tevin Coleman, RB, Atlanta Falcons
Coleman ran for 48 yards. He’s worth an add if Devonata Freeman (concussion) isn’t cleared.
Ruling:  Get ‘em.
.
Patrick DiMarco, RB, Atlanta Falcons
DiMarco caught a couple of fluke touchdown passes. Look elsewhere.
Ruling:  Don’t Sweat ‘em.
.
Thomas Rawls, RB, Seattle Seahawks
Rawls ran for 209 yards and a touchdown while adding three catches for 46 yards and another score. He’s definitely worth a roster spot.
Ruling:  Get ‘em.
.
Spencer Ware, RB, Kansas City Chiefs
Ware ran for 96 yards and a pair of touchdowns and caught one pass for five yards. With Charcandrick West (hamstring) banged up, Ware is worth considering.
Ruling:  Get ‘em.
.
Devin Funchess, WR, Carolina Panthers
Funchess caught four passes for 64 yards and touchdown. He’s been more involved the past few weeks and is worth a look.
Ruling:  Get ‘em.
.
Tyler Lockett, WR, Seattle Seahawks
Lockett caught four passes for 48 yards and two touchdowns. He’s not a consistent option.
.
J.J. Nelson, WR, Arizona Cardinals
Nelson caught four passes for 142 yards and a touchdown. He took advantage of Michael Floyd’s absence, but isn’t a strong play moving forward>
Ruling:  Don’t Sweat ‘em.
.
Terrance Williams, WR, Dallas Cowboys
Williams caught four passes for 79 yards and a touchdown. Romo is back, but Williams isn’t a consistent option.
Ruling:  Don’t Sweat ‘em.
.
Vance McDonald, TE, San Francisco 49ers
McDonald caught four passes for 65 yards and a touchdown. He’s not a fantasy option.
Ruling:  Don’t Sweat ‘em.

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.
.

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.

Celek caught four passes for 134 yards. He’s not a consistent option.
Ruling:  Don’t Sweat ‘em.

Ruling:  Don’t Sweat ‘em.

Ruling:  Don’t Sweat ‘em.
