Fantasy season off to a rocky start? I’m here to help!
Javorius “Buck” Allen, Bal RB
With Terrance West dealing with a day-to-day injury tag and Danny Woodhead being out for at least 8 weeks, the Ravens backfield is wide open again. Buck Allen excels as a pass catching back and that’s exactly who Joe Flacco loves to throw to. The Ravens haven’t exactly played a good team yet and the Jaguars are next up. I’ll be firing up Buck Allen to help fix my poor draft decisions.
Rashard Higgins, Cle WR
The Browns play the Colts, Bengals, and Jets the next three weeks and that’s about as easy as your schedule can get. Corey Coleman broke his hand and Kenny Britt looks like he’s mailed it in. Higgins is worth a bench stash after a 7/95 game.
JJ Nelson, Ari WR
Normally I wouldn’t suggest a receiver catching passes from Carson Palmer’s dead corpse, but someone has to do it. This may be the year Fitz is just too old and John Brown doesn’t look like he’s suiting up this week. I mean I can name more receivers on the Cardinals than I can defenders in the Cowboys secondary so that’s a good thing.
Jermaine Kearse, NYJ WR
If you’re hurting for receivers and play in any type of PPR league, Kearse is a pretty enticing flex play. I’d probably be playing Kearse against the Dolphins over DHop against the Patriots. Benching your studs until they learn their lesson is a proven fantasy technique, right?
AJ Green, Cin WR
We all love AJ Green. It’s hard not to. Did you read his recent piece in the Player’s Tribune? The Bengals aren’t going to magically sort out all their problems in one week. Green is stuck on a team that would probably be better off going into rebuild mode, but won’t because it’s easier being average. Without help from anybody else on the entire offense, defenses will continue to take AJ out of the game.
Anybody On The Giants
Their offensive line is non-existent. Their run game is non-existent. OBJ is nursing an injury. Brandon Marshall has packed it in. Every Giant would be on my bench for their next matchup with the Eagles.
