Mike Davis, SEA RB
The Seahawks just keep finding unknown backs who come in and contribute when called upon. Davis carried the ball 16 times for 64 yards and added four receptions. It looks like Davis could play a big role in the fantasy playoffs, but it might be wise to sit him against the Jaguars this week.
Kerwyn Williams, ARI RB
Better late than never? Since being mentioned as our top pickup in Week 2, Williams has done little to nothing all season. A neck injury has sidelined Adrian Peterson indefinitely, and Williams was quite effective against the Rams, carrying the ball 16 times for 97 yards. He should get the opportunities if Peterson misses another week and is worth a FLEX play for most teams.
Jason Witten, DAL TE
There have been a slew of Tight Ends going down with injuries this season, so it might not be a bad idea to remind you that Jason Witten is always sitting there on the wire waiting for you to call his name. The Cowboys offensive line is being hit with injuries, so Dak Prescott will often be forced to check down to Number 82. He’s not a reliable fantasy asset by any means, but if your team needs help because of an injury, there are far worse options at the position.
Jermaine Kearse, NYJ WR
After an average start to the season, Kearse has really poured it on his last two games, tallying 16 catches for 262 yards and a touchdown. Josh McCown has been unexpectedly effective and Kearse should be owned in all formats even with a tough Denver matchup coming next week.
Rod Smith, DAL RB
If you’re desperate for running back depth you can take a look at Rod Smith, who scored for the second consecutive game last week. His numbers have been pedestrian but there are two more weeks where he’ll get consistent touches in Zeke’s absence and sees enough goal line work to be a low ceiling / high floor play.
DeVante Parker, MIA WR
Is it finally time to write of Parker for good? Entering the season as a breakout candidate for the second straight year, Parker has continued to trend downwards all season. He has had only one reception for five yards in two straight games. The organization is trying to blame is struggles on an ankle injury, but the fact of the matter is that Parker is completely unplayable at this point and should have been dropped weeks ago.
