1. Buy Low
Carson Wentz – Wentz didn’t post a great fantasy score on Sunday, but he escaped without injury and was able to move effectively throughout the game. Wentz lacks weapons in the offense right now, but Jay Ajayi, Darren Sproles, and Alshon Jeffery look close to returning. It was also nice to see Dallas Goedert get involved as well, bringing another weapon to the offense. I saw enough encouraging signs in the game to expect Wentz to quickly return to QB1 status, especially as the Eagles offense returns to health.
Also buy: Tom Brady
Sony Michel – If you watched the Sunday Night game, the Patriots were uninspiring. Michel was uninspiring too, touching the ball 15 times for just 49 yards. It wasn’t the best fantasy performance from Michel, but the good news is, the Patriots used him throughout the game, even considering they played from behind. Rex Burkhead left the game early, and his status in in question for Week 4. James White’s role should remain the same, so it seems likely Michel will have the Dion Lewis role from a year ago making him a highly valuable fantasy asset.
Also buy: Aaron Jones, Kenyan Drake
Corey Davis – I wrote up Corey Davis earlier this season as a buy low, but he’s an even bigger buy now. He’s taken on the Jacksonville defense already, and has battled with poor quarterback play including injuries to his starting quarterbacks in multiple games. I’m buying Davis due to volume. He ranks 7th in Josh Hermsmeyer’s Weighted Opportunity Rating (WOPR). This stat basically combines a player’s share of targets as well as the player’s share of air yards giving us a better idea of volume rather than just referencing targets. The six player above Davis this season in WOPR all have at least 49.8 PPR points with the exception of Antonio Brown who has 40 through two games. Davis has just 28.9 PPR points this season. He’s my favorite buy low at any position this week, and I now own Davis in 100% of my dynasty leagues.
Also buy: Allen Robinson
David Njoku – Njoku has three straight weeks of disappointing fantasy scores, but I’m buying if I need help at tight end. Most tight ends need touchdowns to be relevant in fantasy, and Njoku is no different. With Baker Mayfield starting, I expect the Browns offense to be much better. With an improved offense, more Browns drives will end up in the red zone, making it more likely Njoku scores. He’s a fantastic athlete, and even if he needs to refine his football skills, more opportunity in the red zone should allow the athleticism shine, hopefully turning into fantasy results.
