- Ryan Fitzpatrick, Buccaneers
If you’re in a pinch this week, Fitzpatrick gets a revenge game against Jets team surrendering the 7th most points to the position (19.80 per game). He is a priority add in Superflex leagues with Jameis Winston’s prospects for the next few games in question.
- Damien Williams, Dolphins (repeat)
Although Kenyan Drake managed a better day on the ground (9-69 yards), Williams had the better fantasy day hauling in 6 catches for 47 yards and a TD while adding 14 yards on the ground. He isn’t a viable play this week against a tough Carolina run defense but has great matchups in weeks 11 and 12. He is someone I’m looking to trade if there are suitors.
- Peyton Barber, Buccaneers
With Tampa getting blown out in week 9 against the Saints, Barber was given a bigger workload and turned it into 54 combo yards and 2 receptions. CBS Sports reported that HC Dirk Koetter said Barber’s expanded role could continue into week 10.
- Tre McBride, Bears (repeat)
This is the 3rd time I’ve had McBride in this article. He and Mitch Trubisky seem to have some chemistry. Prior to their bye, McBride had 3 catches for 92 yards against the Saints. I’d expect Dontrelle Inman to see a lot more of the field this week, but I still like McBride a lot, especially in week 10 against a brutal Packers pass defense.
- Garrett Celek, 49ers
Starting tight end George Kittle has been ruled out this week with an ankle injury. This opens the door for a dream matchup for Celek who had 2 big games last season and a few halfway decent ones. Celek gets to go up against the league’s worst defense against opposing fantasy tight ends on the season. He is a priority add in tight end premium leagues and a potential streamer for Ertz and Kelce owners.
- Dion Sims, Bears
With Zach Miller out for the year, Sims will take over as the starter. He is not in play this week with a bad matchup, but he could be started in tight end premium leagues starting in week 12. If he starts seeing a steady dose of targets, he has a great matchup in week 16 against the Browns.
