With the season more than halfway through, things should be coming together for your fantasy team. Whether it’s winning or losing there are always moves to be made to help improve your team. In this article you will find some possible roster moves each week to assess developing trends and to help you take advantage of the way the season progressing.
Danny Woodhead, Baltimore Ravens
With the Ravens still just about in playoff hunt with an offense lacking any kind of killer punch, they should be looking for a spark. Danny Woodhead could be just that. His receiving ability out of the backfield is well known and on his first and only drive before he got hurt, Flacco targeted him three times to the tune of 33 receiving yards.
Marqise Lee, Jacksonville Jaguars
In fantasy football, volume is everything and Lee has been seeing a lot of the ball recently. In week 9 he was targeted 12 times for 67 yards and a touchdown. While everyone is going crazy over the possible emergence of rookie Dede Westbrook, i suggest you buy into the safer floor play with Marqise Lee. You might even find he is on your waivers considering he’s only 39.8% owned.
Terrence Williams, Dallas Cowboys
With main receiver Dez Bryant getting hurt, Williams took over and notched an impressive 141 receiving yards. As a bye week fill in, he could end up being a cheap buy with plenty of upside. Dez suffers from nagging injuries and with Zeke’s future in constant flux, Williams could be a great flex option going into the fantasy playoffs. He should be available on your waiver wire.
Kenyan Drake, Miami Dolphins
If somehow he is still available on your waiver wire, sign Kenyan Drake. His numbers weren’t fantastic and he only had 9 carries, however in PPR he had 6 targets for 6 catches. That is a trend i can buy into and that kind of volume gives him a great floor for this season moving forward.
C.J Prosise, Seattle Seahawks
Seattle’s run offense is non-existent right no with Lacy and Rawls doing nothing but disappointing fantasy owners to date. Now it’s on to the next man and that could well be C.J Prosise. He might even see the majority of the carries and if he doesn’t, he will certainly see the majority of the targets in the passing game out of the backfield and could well be PPR gold.
TY Hilton, Indianapolis Colts
Hilton has been up and down all season and truly match-up dependent. In games versus Cleveland, San Francisco and Houston he scored over 24 fantasy points but the rest of the season he hasn’t sniffed double digit PPR points and has been rendered surplus to requirements. Sell high if you can because Indy have a tough rest of season schedule and he is likely to have more bust games than boom.
Adrian Peterson, Arizona Cardinals
A very similar case to TY Hilton, Adrian Peterson has been able to take advantage of match-ups versus terrible defenses. The Cardinals have ran him a ton in these games and who knows if he can hold up at his age. With big name value, plus the performance in week 9, he may be able to get you some serious return value.
Jay Ajayi, Philadelphia Eagles
The excitement couldn’t be higher for the best British player in the league! But this season with the Dolphins, Ajayi has struggled to get any traction. But now he finds himself on a new team and with his first carry broke off a long touchdown. Yet the Eagles only gave Ajayi eight carries, whilst positional rivals Blount had nine and Corey Clement 12. This offense is still looking like a timeshare regardless who they have and don’t forget all this was without their main man Zach Ertz dominating red zone looks.
Kareem Hunt, Kansas City Cheifs
Do not press the panic button on Kareem the dream. Yes he has seen a decrease in snaps count and he hasn’t seen the endzone in the last six games which has affected his fantasy production. But the Chiefs should be able to re-group with the bye week coming up and the playoffs in sight, they should look to lean on their star rookie down the stretch. Stay the course and he should get back to the production we saw in the first few weeks.
One last thing…
Don’t buy Josh Gordon
They Hype train is real right now. The problem is, it’s been four years since Gordon has done anything of significance in the NFL. He claims he’s in the best shape of his life and ready to play. Good shape and game day shape are two different things. After that long absence and with a dodgy quarterback situation in Cleveland, I’d stay away and let others make that mistake. If you want anyone go for anyone in Cleveland, keep tabs on Corey Coleman’s return from injury.
