Get ‘em
Peyton Barber, RB, Tampa Bay Buccaneers – 106 total yards and a TD.
Taylor Gabriel, WR, Chicago Bears – Caught all five targets for 110 yards.

Austin Hooper, TE, Atlanta Falcons – Caught nine 9 of 10 targets for 71 yards and a TD.
Christian Kirk, WR, Arizona Cardinals – Caught 6 of 7 targets for 77 yards. Has a nice rapport with Josh Rosen.
Marlon Mack, RB, Indianapolis Colts – 93 total yards. Finally healthy.
Vance McDonald, TE, Pittsburgh Steelers – Caught 7 of 8 targets for 68 yards.
Latavius Murray, RB, Minnesota Vikings – Ran for 155 yards and a TD. Shows he can perform if Dalvin Cook misses again.
Terrelle Pryor, WR, New York Jets – Caught of 6 targets for 57 yards and a TD.
Chester Rogers, WR, Indianapolis Colts – Caught 4 of 10 targets for 55 yards, TD.
Wendell Smallwood, RB, Philadelphia Eagles – 51 yards. Corey Clement was more productive (69 total yards, TD) but Smallwood paced the Birds with 18 carries.
Mitchell Trubisky, QB, Chicago Bears – 316 yards, 3 TDs, 47 yards rushing. QB2.
Marquez Valdes-Scantling, WR, Green Bay Packers – Caught 3 of 6 targets for 103 yards. Second straight solid week. Useful if GB WRs remain sidelined.
Jameis Winston, QB, Tampa Bay Buccaneers – 395 yards and 4 TDs. Tampa’s defense will keep the Bucs in shootouts and they have good weapons.
.
Don’t Sweat ‘em
Cole Beasley, WR, Dallas Cowboys – Caught 9 of 11 targets for 101 yards and a pair of TDs.
Cameron Brate, TE, Tampa Bay Buccaneers – 15-yard TD catch. Three straight games with a score, but not an option with Howard healthy.

Chris Herndon, TE, New York Jets – Caught both targets for 56 yards and a score.
Chris Hogan, WR, New England Patriots – Caught all four targets for 78 yards.
Adam Humphries, WR, Tampa Bay Buccaneers – Caught 3 of 4 targets for 82 yards. Too many other options for consistent results.

Zay Jones, WR, Buffalo Bills – Caught 3 of 8 targets for 35 yards, TD. Jermaine Kearse, WR, New York Jets – Caught 9 of 10 targets for 94 yards. Put him on your radar.

Anthony Miller, WR, Chicago Bears – 29-yard TD.
David Moore, WR, Seattle Seahawks – Caught 2 of 3 targets for 47 yards and a TD. Three scores in two games. Put him on radar.
Raheem Mostert, RB, San Francisco 49ers – 12 carries for 87 yards. Alfred Morris can be dropped. Mostert is one to keep an eye on. Possible value pick for daily leagues.
Nick O’Leary, TE, Miami Dolphins – Caught all four targets for 49 yards and a TD.
Brock Osweiler, QB, Miami Dolphins – 380 yards, 3 TDs.
Damion Ratley, WR, Cleveland Browns – Caught 6 of 8 targets for 82  yards.

Get ‘em
Alfred Blue, RB, Houston Texans – Racked up 119 total yards in Lamar Miller’s absence. Worth adding if Miller misses again or cedes lead back duties to blue
Blake Bortles, QB, Jacksonville Jaguars – Threw for 430 yards and a TD. Ran for 34 and a score. Topped 375 yards in 3 of 5 games.
Martavis Bryant, WR, Oakland Raiders – Caught all three targets for 91 yards.
Keelan Cole, WR, Jacksonville Jaguars – Caught 4 of 10 targets for 70 yards.
Mike Davis, RB, Seattle Seahawks – 75 total yards, TD.
Frank Gore, RB, Miami Dolphins – 12 carries for 63 yards. The veteran had twice as many carries as Kenyan Drake.
Austin Hooper, TE, Atlanta Falcons – Caught 9 of 12 targets for 77 yards. TE yards2 option.
Baker Mayfield, QB, Cleveland Browns – Threw for 342 yards and a TD. Ran for 23 yards. QB2.
Donte Moncrief, WR, Jacksonville Jaguars – Caught 6 of 15 targets for 76 yards. 109 yards and a score last week.
Chester Rogers, WR, Indianapolis Colts – Caught 8 of 11 targets for 66 yards. PPR depth option with 16 catches in last two games, particularly if T.Y. Hilton is sidelined again.
Mohamed Sanu, WR, Atlanta Falcons – Caught 4 of 7 targets for 73 yards, TD. Three solid weeks in a row.
Wendell Smallwood, RB, Philadelphia Eagles – 71 total yards, TD. Option now that Jay Ajayi is done for the year. Corey Clement is probably the preferred long-term add.
