Hey all… as we head into Week 10, make sure you know all of your Week 10 Byes: CAR, IND,
JuJu Smith-Schuster is the real deal. His last two games have been 7/193/1TD and 5/97/1TD. He is arguably a WR2 in fantasy right now, but because young receivers can cool off as fast as they heat up, it’s safer counting on him as an excellent WR3 or flex moving forward. Still, it’s tough not to get WR2-excited about this kid moving forward.
Josh Gordon is expected back in Week 13, and it’s said that he is running a 4.3 forty, which is more than elite. It’s crazy. There are few players in the NFL with more talent physically, he is that special, so he is worth grabbing and considering for flex or WR3 usage down the stretch. He should have been grabbed weeks ago, not just last week, as he has been on our “add list” for several weeks.
The only reason Alfred Morris isn’t #1 on this list is because it’s tough to know if any of the Dallas rushers will have RB2 value in Ezekiel Elliott’s (6-game suspension) absence. Because all three off Morris, Darren McFadden and Rod Smith are sharing some of the workload (as of now), it makes it tough to count on any single one of them, and it makes it even hard to know who to pick up off waivers if all three are available. My gut tells me Rod Smith could eventually see a big amount of carries, which would put him in RB2 position in fantasy. Let’s hope that happens, but know he is the underdog of the three. It just so happens he has the most talent. He’s a good runner.
Marvin Jones Jr had 6/128 and 7/107/2TDs in Weeks 8 and 9, and then he flopped in Week 10 with just 1 catch for 22 yards. Still, he is an excellent WR3/flex moving forward and he has low-end WR2 upside.
Robby Anderson, like Jones, has excellent WR3/flex appeal down the stretch. He has four-straight games with a TD. That’s more than impressive. The dude can score.
Dion Lewis and Rex Burkhead are both sharing a similar role now in New England, and both should be grabbed. Either has awesome flex-value moving forward, no question, it’s just a matter of picking the right one of the two. Lewis, if healthy, has the most appeal of the two, but either could be called upon for 10+ carries per game. New England is tough to predict like that, which is why both fall so far on this list. If it was a lock, for one to start, they would rank much higher.
