Update: John Kelly could become very Week 16 relevant should the Rams be careful and sit Todd Gurley (knee inflammation) this week. CJ Anderson was also signed.
Gus Edwards RB Ravens
It was suppose to be the Kenneth Dixon tryout in Week 15, but Gus Edwards decided to show back up for his starting gig duties, and he cranked out 19 rushes for 104 yards and a touchdown against the Bucs. I think it’s semi-safe to say the job is once again Edwards’ to lose, and even with some risk of a timeshare in BAL, Edwards holds acceptable risk/reward upside as a flex play heading into Week 16.
Jamaal Williams RB Packers
With Aaron Jones (sprained MCL) injured, Williams should take over as the lead back in GB for the remainder of the season. Then again, will Green Bay be predictable in the final couple weeks without playoff hopes? Tough to say, but Williams should be the guy in GB for two weeks, and that makes him a huge add this week (For teams in need).
Robert Foster WR BUF
Robert Foster is the man. He is listed as Buffalo’s WR3 on most depth charts out there, but make no mistake about it, he’s the No. 1 WR in BUF. He has back-to-back 100-yard games now (7/104/0TDs in Week 14 and 4/108/1TD in Week 15)… and, he had a 100-yard game in Week 10, and a 94/1TD game in Week 12… he’s no fluke, he merely a play maker dialing up some rapport with the ever-maturing Josh Allen. Buffalo could be exciting as soon as next year, folks. I said this about the Rams when they were a losing team with no hope. I feel like Buffalo could be transforming in the next 0-2 years. If this kid is available in dynasty, grab him! If he is available in redraft, grab him!
Robby Anderson WR Jets
Robby Anderson has played great for two-straight weeks now, posting 4/76/1TD in Week 14 and then 7/96/1TD last week in Week 15. Don’t forget, Anderson is the No. 1 WR for his team and was a fantasy WR2 in spans last year (63 receptions for 941 and 7TDs). He knows how to drop serious points if healthy, and he finally appears healthy. He is available in a ton of leagues, which is shocking, so make sure he isn’t available in yours. If so, grab him.
Mike Williams WR LAC
The guy has emerged and vanished all year, so he’s hard to trust. That said, can you believe that the guy has 9TDs this year? Nine! Hard to accept at a glance, eh? Last week, he pulled in 7/76/2TDs. Regardless of this year, he has some nice dynasty appeal right now.
Kalen Ballage RB Dolphins
Kalen Ballage rushed the ball 12 times for 123 yards and a touchdown in Week 15 against the Vikings. Frank Gore suffered a foot injury, and he is now done for the season. Will Ballage take over? It sure looks like it, but Miami is known for not using talent in the right ways, or recognizing which players to use at the right times. So, grab Ballage for sure this week if you can, he has HUGE upside if given double-digit carries and a handful of receptions… Kenyan Drake is thought to have been healthy despite taking a backseat to Ballage in Week 15, but anything is possible, and it’s our guess that the Dolphins won’t let anyone know what they are planning on doing this week at running back. We don’t think they even know. They never know. Dynasty note: Ballage is a must-grab with tons of talent, we just don’t know if he will be used right (now or later). No one on Miami’s roster has been used properly over the last handful of years.
Elijah McGuire RB Jets
He’s getting the touches in NY, but returning decent amounts of points. In back-to-back weeks, McGuire has posted 17/60/1 and 18/42/1 (with three catches in each game for twenty-something yards). He is a must-grab because he starts, but he holds flex-ish value at best.
Others: Mike Davis (RB/SEA), Zach Zenner (RB/DET), Lamar Jackson (QB/BAL)
