Players to Add
Jimmy Garoppolo, SF
Owned in 6% of leagues, but is projected 14.55 points. The 49ers are sure to let their newest weapon try out the offense in the garbage time of the season, and that means we could see some production for Jimmy G just in time for fantasy playoffs.
Dion Lewis, NE
He has proven to be a consistent scorer, is projected to get about 13 points this week, and is available in nearly 20% of leagues still. A fifth of leagues are missing out on a guy who could be a highly valuable two-back or flex option. The Patriots usually crank up the run as the weeks mount up, so don’t be shocked if Lewis sees a steady increase in numbers as well.
Alex Collins, BAL
About to face the Lions, who are sixth-worst against the running game this year, Collins is a lock. He’s available in a third of leagues! C’mon guys! Points are out there if you want to grab them. Collins is a constant ten points or better performer, and a 15-point outing is very much possible this time around.
Josh Gordon, CLE
The long-awaited return for Josh Gordon comes to an end this Sunday! While expectations for him need to be managed, he’ll surely be a part of the game plan. Just let Head Coach Hue Jackson tell you: “My plans for him? Oh boy, let me tell you. I got big plans for him. I plan for him to play and play as much as he can handle.”
Robby Anderson, NYJ
Available in 30% of leagues, a top receiver for an underrated fantasy offense. A good grab if your number two receiver or flex are especially lacking, and a ten-point performance is a good expectation for Robby in the weeks to come.
Tyler Kroft, CIN
Kroft is about to play the Pittsburgh Steelers, who allow consistent fantasy points to tight ends this year. Add in the fact that Kroft is only owned in 40% of leagues, and suddenly a team desperate for TE production has a favorable target. He is only projected five points, but it’s a bargain grab for the potential upside of Kroft this week.
