Teams should definitely have a good sense of whether or not they will be contending for a championship by this point. But, regardless of the team’s status, they should be looking to make moves to improve their team. I am here to help you do so.
Head coach Doug Pederson dropped a bomb on Miles Sanders’ truthers this week as he stated that Howard was the one who was staking a claim as the lead running back in Philadelphia. Howard is worth acquiring, on the cheap, to boost a championship contender’s bench. And better yet, he is a free agent after this year, so Howard will get to pick his next destination.
Wims is a guy I am most definitely keeping my eye on. The 2nd year receiver has seen >90% of the snaps each of the last 2 weeks. The targets have yet to come, but when they do, Wims will be a hot waiver wire pickup.
I recently wrote about Lindsay as a buy-low candidate in my week 3 stock report, and now Lindsay is truly beginning to separate himself from Freeman. Lindsay is now performing at a more efficient level than Freeman and while the two running backs seem to split snaps, Lindsay touches the ball at a higher rate than Freeman does. Lindsay is the running back to own from this backfield right now.
This one is obvious right? But, I’ve gotta talk about it. The Packers fed Aaron Jones against the Cowboys this past Sunday. There’s 2 take-aways from this. First, head coach Matt LaFleur built his Adams-less offense around Jones and made the decision to commit to the run. Second, the team did not use two backs as they had in games past. I predicted Dexter Williams would be called up to the active 46 man roster…he was not. I predicted that the team would still split carries with Jones and the RB2…they did not. Jones is the dude you want and the only remaining concern with him is injury which has yet to rear its ugly head this season (knocks on wood).
Everett is a 3rd year player who tested well. His SPARQ score was in the 85th percentile, dominator score was in the 90th, and he tested as an explosive athlete. Better yet, he plays in a high-flying offense. His price should still be reasonable, but he has all the makings of a quality fantasy TE.
You’re probably saying to yourself, obviously i’m buying Saquon Barkley. But, the buying window is closing. Barkley could be returning in week 7 and once he does, his price will return to what it was pre-injury if it hasn’t already.
It’s been incredibly difficult to get a handle on the backup situation in Carolina. So, basically, nothing new. The latest and strongest contender is Reggie Bonnafon. The Panther handcuff is one of great mystery and great value (should McCaffery go down). I’m taking as many lottery tickets if I can.
Last week was the first time that Will Fuller out-touched Deandre Hopkins. While Hopkins hasn’t been that great fantasy wise, he’s still the undoubted number 1 target in Houston. Fuller has value, for sure, but it is not nearly what it is right now. I’d try to sell high on Fuller after his massive 50 point week.
Yes, Hines still plays for the Colts. No, he has not been getting much work. I’m relinquishing all of my Hines shares if possible.
Parker is about as good of a low risk, high reward player that you can find. Miami has not been good, not one bit. But, Parker is still a talented receiver and there will be plenty of garbage time opportunities this season. Not to mention, Parker is a free agent this upcoming offseason and his name has been thrown around in trade rumors for a while now. Either one of those situations should boost Parker’s perceived value and possibly his actual value.
The McLaurin hype has been reduced to a quiet murmur thus it is worth poking around the McLaurin owner’s team to see if you can snag McLaurin at a reduced price tag.Follow @tyler_grezTweets by tyler_grez
