Note: Make sure Josh Gordon is not available in your league.
Kenyan Drake isn’t available in most leagues, but check to be sure. He rushed 25 times for 114 yards and caught 5-of-6 targets for 79 yards in the Dolphins’ Week 14 win over the Patriots. He looks the part of a real 2018 breakout, if Miami uses him right, and he could have a strong finish to the 2017 season. He warrants strong flex/RB3 consideration this week (with upside for much more).
Ezekiel Elliott will return in Week 16, but Rod Smith still has Week 15 to make some noise. Last week, Smith ran six times for 47 yards and a touchdown, but he added 5 receptions for 115 yards and another touchdown through the air. His TDs came in the fourth quarter, which leaves you with a sense that the team will count on him more in Week 15, maybe to the tune of starter-type touches. He is far from a lock to get even a 100 total yards and a touchdown next week, but he is a great add and flex play in Week 15 if you are hurting due to injury.
Kerwynn Williams rushed 20 times for 73 yards, and he also pulled in 1 pass for 15 yards in the Cardinals’ Week 14 win over the Titans. He is getting volume, which makes him a strong flex heading into Week 15.
Marquise Goodwin has been on fire over the last five games, and last week’s 6/106/0TD line is proof he is rather consistent heading into Week 15. He is a solid WR3 and flex play in Week 15.
We had Tion Green set to have a big Week 15, but the team leaned on Theo Riddick instead. He rushed the ball just 10 times for 29 yards, but had 2TDs with that rushing. He then added 6 catches for 64 yards. He must be added in most all leagues and has some RB3/flex appeal heading into Week 15, but know there are risks counting on him, just as there were risks counting on Tion Green, who was surprisingly not used in Week 14 despite having a strong Week 13 showing.
