QB Ryan Fitzpatrick, Tampa Bay Buccaneers
There’s not much available at quarterback this week and Fitzpatrick is still available in some leagues. Fitzpatrick passed for 243 yards with four touchdowns, two interceptions and added 23 rushing yards. Fitzpatrick has three games of four touchdowns this season and has 17 touchdowns and seven interceptions in six games. The Buccaneers host the Redskins this week and Fitzpatrick has a multitude of weapons in a pass-heavy offense.
RB Mike Davis, Seattle Seahawks
Chris Carson didn’t play in the second half due to a thigh injury and Davis became the lead back. Davis had 15 carries for 62 yards and caught seven of his eight targets for 45 yards. Carson has already missed a game this season and he was on the injury report last week. When Carson was out in Week 4, Davis had 21 carries for 101 yards with two touchdowns and four catches for 23 yards. The Seahawks are the most run-heavy team in the league and if Carson is out, Davis should get around 20 touches. After Carson left the game, Davis played 59 snaps, while Rashaad Penny played 12 snaps.
RB Josh Adams, Philadelphia Eagles
Adams might fly under the radar since the Eagles are coming off a bye week and they’re not fresh in the minds of people. I added Adams in some deeper formats last week. Eagles coach Doug Pederson tends to use several running backs and Darren Sproles could return, but Adams looked good in Week 8 and could become the go-to guy in the backfield. Adams had nine carries for 61 yards and caught an 8-yard pass in Week 8 against the Jaguars. Corey Clement had five touches for five yards and Wendell Smallwood had 10 touches for 66 yards and a touchdown.
RB Elijah McGuire, New York Jets
McGuire has been talked about here for the last two weeks. He’s still widely available in Yahoo! leagues. McGuire made his season debut in Week 9 after beginning the season on injured reserve. McGuire played 36 of 66 snaps, while Isaiah Crowell played 23 snaps. McGuire had seven carries for 30 yards and caught three passes for 37 yards on five targets. The Jets should be playing from behind often, leaving McGuire in a position to be on the field often.
WR Marquez Valdes-Scantling, Green Bay Packers
Valdes-Scantling may have been dropped once Randall Cobb and Geronimo Allison returned in Week 8. Allison didn’t play in Week 9 and Valdes-Scantling played the same amount of snaps as Cobb. Valdes-Scantling had six targets against the Patriots and caught three passes for 101 yards, including a couple of impressive catches. He has shown enough that the Packers would be smart to keep as a key piece of the offense.
WR Adam Humphries, Tampa Bay Buccaneers
The Buccaneers have a lot of weapons in the offense and Humphries can get underlooked. The Buccaneers have him on the field often and play from behind most of the time and haven’t been able to run the ball well. Humphries had his best game of the season in Week 9 catching all eight of his targets for 82 yards and two touchdowns. He has at least eight targets in three straight games and has hit double-digit points in PPR formats in three of the last four games. With four teams on bye, Humphries is an option in deep formats.
TE Jeff Heuerman, Denver Broncos
Heuerman came into Week 9 with 12 red zone targets, but didn’t score his first touchdown until Week 8. With Demaryius Thomas traded to the Texans last week, Courtland Sutton was expected to see the biggest increase in targets. Sutton had five targets and it was Heuerman, at least for the first week, who was the biggest boost. Heuerman saw 11 targets, catching ten for 83 yards and a touchdown in Week 9 against the Texans. The Broncos are on a bye in Week 10.
