If you prefer the written word over the radio clip above:
Josh Adams has the upside to become a good flex play moving forward. He has upside for more, but doesn’t pull in a lot of passes, so his PPR value could be capped at the flex-like level.
Rashaad Penny had an awesome 100-yard game in Week 10, however, his team isn’t buying into him as the starter – yet. Chris Carson is set to start Week 11, and Mike Davis is also biting into the overall workload in SEA, so Penny is a guy to grab and still stash and see what’s what a few weeks from now.
Jaylen Samuels now becomes the must-have handcuff to James Conner. Conner is one of our biggest landed bold predictions ever, he was #2 on our Bold Predictions before the LeVeon Bell holdout threats even smelled real… and while love the kid, still, he could breakdown and Samuels would also thrive at the top 5-10RB level if forced to start games. Don’t sleep on this angle of that PIT rushing attack… many slept on James Conner despite our ‘screaming from the rooftops” efforts back in August/Sept… this stash play is actually written into our James Conner predictions on the Bold Predictions… they were always a package in our eyes.
Josh Reynolds has some serious WR3/flex appeal with Cooper Kupp done, and in that Rams’ offense, his floor is kinda high. I’m not calling him a WR2 in fantasy, just that he can be productive on the weekly, so grab him if you need a WR.
Anthony Miller was also on our Bold Predictions back in August, so we love the kid, and we think he could be hit and miss this year down the stretch, however, he will show flashes of what we expect to come in the coming years.
