Quarterbacks

Blake Bortles (JAX) 44%

Blake Bortles Jaguars QuarterbackI know Bortles has been pretty lame this year compared to his previous two seasons, but at this point in the season we need to start looking ahead. I know he has games against ARI and SEA coming up but he also has games against CLE, IND, HOU, and SF. Keeping in mind the HOU and SF games are during week 15 and 16, which typically are the last two rounds of the playoffs. So if your current quarterbacks have tough schedules remaining you may want to consider adding Bortles to give yourself better options come playoff time.

C.J. Beathard (SF) 13%

Take this one with a grain of salt. The 49ers have their bye this coming week and and his last game he looked pretty good against a Giants team that looks as thought they have quit on the year. Coming out of the bye he faces the SEA which is not a favorable match up, but then he gets CHI, HOU, and TEN leading you right into the early rounds of the playoffs. He does face JAX championship week which means you will need other options for that week, but he can certainly help you get to that game with his pretty soft schedule.

Running Backs

Jamaal Williams (GB) 30%

To be honest here the only reason why Williams is here for me is because he is likely to the be the best running back on the wire that could be in line for some heavy work load and when it comes to running backs that is pretty important. Full disclosure though I am not sure that will make too much a difference in the value, which is pretty low to me.

Austin Ekeler (LAC) 9%

I don’t think Melvin Gordon is losing his job at all, but I do think the Chargers are trying to lighten his load a little bit. Enter Ekeler, who seems to be gaining some trust, at least in the passing game. He has also managed to get come carries. If Ekeler can manage six to eight carries and four or five targets a game he could turn into a pretty solid flex play down the stretch. With games against WAS, KC, and NYJ in the playoffs, he might not be a bad guy to have stashed on your roster.

Wide Receivers

Robert Woods (LAR) 52%

I try to find guys below 50 percent owned for my article here, but with how great Woods has been and to only be 52 percent owned I had to add him. If you are in a league that is in the 48 percent available go get Woods now. Even if you can’t or even don’t need him, I would be making sure no one else could use him against me. He is turning into one of his quarterbacks favorite target and that trend should continue the rest of the way.

Marquise Goodwin (SF) 20%

If you are not familiar with Goodwin’s story from this past week, go look it up. I have tremendous respect for Goodwin after this weekend. That said, that is not the reason why he is here. He is here because the 49ers are super thin at wide receiver and he has been seeing a decent amount of targets most weeks. The 49ers will likely be playing from behind for the remainder of the year and that means plenty of opportunity for one the NFL’s fastest guys

Marqise Lee (JAX) 40%

Fantasy Football Waiver Wire Week 10 Marqise Lee14 receptions on 23 targets for 130 yards and two touchdowns in the last two weeks. Not bad for a guy on a run first team. I fully expect those numbers to continue and with the sweet schedule that we already discussed JAX having why would you not roster this guy? If he is available go get him now, he will produce for you down the stretch.

Dontrelle Inman (CHI) 7%

For only logging a few weeks of practice Inman looks right at home with the Bears offense. In his first start as a Bear he saw eight targets and turned it into six receptions for 88 yards. While his playoff schedule is not great, his games leading up the playoffs is pretty nice and could be a guy to help push you over into the playoffs.

 

Josh Doctson (WAS) 43%

Pretty sure it is official now, Doctson has taken over for Terrelle Pryor as the Redskins wide receiver two. Pryor who did not even see a target last week seems to be on his way out of Washington and Doctson seems ready to because Kirk Cousins go to guy. Doctson is slowly getting more snaps and targets and should be treated as the Skins WR2 from here on out. He upcoming schedule is not as favorable as others, but its not terrible either. Plus factor in he plays on a better offense than some of these other guys.

Tight Ends

Vernon Davis (WAS) 42%

With Jeremy Reed always injured, Davis gets plenty of chances to show he has plenty left in the tank. 20 targets in the last two weeks has led to 13 receptions for 148 yards. While he has not found the end zone in either game, if he continues to get to that amount of targets his receptions and yards will be more than enough to give him value. Any week Reed is out is worth starting Davis.

Jermain Gresham (ARI) 6%

Carson Palmer has never been much of a pass to the tight end kind of guy, but since he has been down Gresham has seen 13 targets and turned them into 8 receptions 105 yards and two touchdowns. I am not sure that pace will continue, but he at least getting some red zone looks and as long as those are happening he has some value. Some tough match ups coming up, but some really sweet ones in the playoffs for him.
