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.
.
Byes: Carolina, Indianapolis, New York Jets, San Francisco
.
Blake Bortles, Jacksonville Jaguars – The Browns rank 28th with 19 touchdown passes allowed.
Jay Cutler, Miami Dolphins – The Bucs rank 29th with 266.4 passing yards allowed per game.
Blaine Gabbert, Arizona Cardinals – Houston has allowed 253.8 yards per game and 19 touchdown passes.
C.J. Anderson and Jamaal Charles, RBs, Denver Broncos – Cincy has allowed 123.6 rushing yards per game. Anderson finally a viable option. Charles a desperation play?
Austin Ekeler, RB, Los Angeles Chargers – Bills have allowed a league-high 14 rushing TDs.
Rod Smith, RB, Dallas Cowboys – Playing from behind, Smith will likely get several receptions. PPR flex and DFS option?
Jamaal Williams, RB, Green Bay Packers – Baltimore has allowed 125.9 rushing yards per game (28th in league).
Keelan Cole, WR, Jacksonville Jaguars – Averaging 57.3 yards in last three games. Another decent game against Cleveland?
Bruce Ellington, WR, Houston Texans – Should see more action with Will Fuller out.
Roger Lewis, WR, Kansas City Chiefs – Chiefs have allowed 259.2 passing yards per game (27th in league)
Sammy Watkins, WR, Los Angeles Rams – Robert Woods has been more effective, but will Watkins have his third straight solid game?
Jermaine Gresham, TE, Arizona Cardinals – Gabbert going to check down to Gresham often?
Marcedes Lewis, TE, Jacksonville Jaguars – TD dependent. Can he reach paydirt against the Browns.
Baltimore Ravens Defense – Take advantage of Brett Hundley?
Cincinnati Bengals – Brock Osweiler makes them an attractive option?
Los Angeles Chargers Defense – Nathan Peterman’s first start.

Kareem Hunt
.
Through three games Kansas City Chiefs running back Kareem Hunt was looking like a modern version of Priest Holmes. An injury to Spencer Ware gave Hunt the opportunity and he ran with it…literally by piling up 148 yards and a touchdown on the ground to accompany five receptions for 98 yards and a pair of touchdowns in the NFL opener against the defending Super Bowl Champion New England Patriots. Talk about a first impression.
.
Hunt followed up that historic performance with 81 yards rushing, three catches fro 28 yards and a pair of scores on the ground against the Philadelphia Eagles. His dominance continued in Week 3 with 172 yards and a score on the ground along with an 11-yard reception. He has yet to score a touchdown since.
.
Hunt should help the Chiefs run away with the Division, but if the Kansas City Chiefs odds for the season are going to suggest a deep playoff run, Kareem is going to have to return to the end zone.
.
In Week 4 Hunt ran for 101 yards and caught four passes for 20 yards against the Washington Redskins. His fourth and final 100-yard performance to date came in Week 5 against the Houston Texans when he ran for 108 yards and added three receptions for nine yards. Hunt stayed hot in Week 6 with 110 total yards (21 rushing, five receptions for 89 yards), but his run total was the first warning sign. Hunt returned to form with 87 rushing yards and four catches for 30 yards in Week 7 against the Oakland Raiders to give him his seventh straight game with at least 100 total yards.
.
The last two games prior to the Week 10 bye are where Hunt stopped performing like an elite running back. In Week 8 he was limited to 46 yards on 22 carries (2.1 yards per carry) against the Denver Broncos. He caught three passes for 22 yards, but his 68 total yards were disappointing to fantasy owners that had relied heavily on him. He followed that game up with 37 rushing yards and four catches for 24 yards, establishing a new low with 61 total yards.
.
Look for the Chiefs to focus on getting him more involved coming out of their bye. If you are looking to buy low on him, now may be the time. You will still have to offer a healthy ransom to get him, but this is likely his low point in value.
.
First up is the New York Giants. They rank 30th in league with 132.6 yards allowed per game. Then he squares off against Buffalo, who have allowed 117.0 yard per game and a league high 14 rushing touchdowns (thanks New Orleans). Then it’s the 23rd ranked Jets at 117.9 ypg followed by another shot at Oakland (21st at 116.6 ypg). Week 15 brings the Los Angeles Chargers and their league-worst 135.1 ypg. Week 16 he finally squares off against a decent run defense in Miami before closing out against the Broncos.
.
With the schedule ahead, it would not be surprising if Hunt was the top running back in the league down the strethc.
