There was little question who would slide into Mohammed Sanu’s role in the Falcons offense, but we received confirmation that it would be Russell Gage this past weekend. He left the week with a 58% snap count and saw a target share of 19%. Both are promising numbers and make Gage worth rostering in nearly all formats.
This isn’t necessarily new news, but an affirmation that Gus Edwards is the handcuff you want with Mark Ingram leading the way in Baltimore. That to me, is the most valuable part of Edwards’ value. Edwards has been playing well though and has proven worthy of being discussed as a possible low-end FLEX option.
It’s finally happening. Singletary is beginning to take over the Bills backfield. Two weeks in a row the rookie has significantly out-snapped Frank Gore. Last week, he saw a significant amount more carries than Gore did. Add that all into his already built-in value as a pass catcher in that offense and you’re sitting pretty. Singletary might still be affordable and you should grab him before he’s not.
Simply put, Pascal is the last man standing in that Colts WR room. The coaches like him, the fans like him and he’s a solid addition to your fantasy bench. Jacoby Brissett should be returning soon and that will only boost the value of every Colts offensive player.
Jones is proving his relevance as a Raider. It’s very possible that the change of scenery actually bodes well for the 2nd year player. He was the undisputed number 2 wide receiver last week. I’ll continue to monitor if that continues and if it does, his value will only continue to rise.
Hollins is the de-facto Desean Jackson replacement and Jackson just ended up on the season-ending injured reserve. Hollins hasn’t been that productive, but it’s important to be conscious of his role within that offense. I’d be keeping an eye out for the Eagles offense and if they begin to use Hollins now that they know Jackson won’t be returning.
Odell Beckham Jr.
It seems like with each passing week, Beckham’s value continues to fall. I actually kinda feel bad for the guy; he just can’t seem to catch a break. I really want to see Odell get himself into an actually good offensive situation and flourish. He deserves a quarterback that will target him and get him the ball. With that being said, Odell hasn’t been terrible this year. He just isn’t scoring touchdowns. He’s still putting up decent yardage numbers and getting his receptions. In other words, Odell Beckham is still a really, really good receiver. Once the touchdown numbers start rolling in, his value will return to form. I’m viewing this as a buy-low opportunity since for star players like OBJ, they don’t come along that often.
The past few weeks have been a subtle reminder who the WR1 in Tampa Bay is: Mike Evans. Godwin hasn’t surpassed Evans’ target share since week 5 and even then the two receivers were relatively splitting the load. This isn’t a panic sell of Godwin by any means, simply a reminder that regression will come. Godwin has returned to earth after his torrid stretch of games before the Buccaneers bye. He will still continue to produce alongside Evans and both receivers should be viable moving forward as top 24 guys. This is the lowest his buying window has been since the 1st week of the season. If you have an interest in going out and acquiring Godwin, now is the time.
