1. Rod Smith(20.5)
Rod Smith is a great pickup for these upcoming weeks, while Ezekiel Elliot’s suspension is still active. Darren McFadden was released earlier today, likely to give Smith more carries, as he was more efficient than McFadden last
2. Case Keenum(37)
Case Keenum is someone that I did not expect I would be putting on this list. I expected him to be owned in many more leagues, by then I saw his 37 percent ownage percentage! Keenum is flying under many people’s radars and is a legitimate fantasy quarterback, especially if you are making a playoff run. Keenum is a great pickup if your quarterback is someone like Matt Ryan who has disappointed.
3. Zay Jones(10.5)
Jones has had a relatively slow year, but with Benjamin’s absence he may be able to shine. He had a solid performance this week, recording his second touchdown. He should get more looks in the upcoming weeks, especially in the red zone, making him a player worth stashing on your bench.
4. Jermaine Kearse(35.5)
Kearse may be a great pickup with many teams focusing on the red-hot Robby Anderson. Kearse quietly had a great game this week and is a viable option. The Chiefs also have a weak pass defense, making Kearse a viable pickup.
5. Cordarrelle Patterson(0.6) and Johnny Holton(0)
I put these two in the same spot because they are in the same position. These two are really only options in deeper leagues. With Crabtree out next week and Cooper also likely out they may be able to rack up more targets than usual. They also have a favorable matchup, against the Giants. They have the potential to record a big week this week and may be worth a pickup.
