Wendell Smallwood, PHI RB
We mentioned Smallwood as a hot pickup in Week 4 and he instantly impressed with 79 total yards and a touchdown against the Chargers. Some nagging injuries have sidelined him since then, so it’s possible that he was dropped in your league. If that is the case, it’s time to pick him back up as he’s expected to play in Monday’s game against the Redskins.
Orleans Darkwa, NYG RB
The Broncos were coming off a bye and were playing at home, but this guy ran for 117 yards on 21 carries. The Giants don’t have options anywhere else so expect another heavy rushing attack when they face off against the Seahawks.
Jeremy Kerley, NYJ RB
Kerley could be what Pierre Garcon is for the Niners, if they let him. Josh McCown hasn’t been playing half bad all things considered. Kerley is about as reliable as slot receivers can be with a set of great hands. He should be a solid flex play in PPR leagues against the Dolphins.
Tyrod Taylor, BUF QB
The Bills are somehow winning games with limited offensive output. I expect all that to change coming off the bye week with a home game against the Bucs. The Bucs are probably still trying to figure out who they’re going to fire first after letting Carson Palmer and Adrian Peterson’s collective dead corpse take their defense to pound-town.
Kenny Golladay/T.J. Jones, DET WR
If Golden Tate misses any significant time, these guys are worth the stash. There are plenty of targets to go around in Detroit.
Tyreke Hill, KC WR
I never bought the hype. He’s a gimmick player. He could be consistently good as a WR2 if the Chiefs had an actual WR1, but they don’t. Fantasy owners will constantly have to hope for a long TD score to get a return on their draft day investment.
Green Bay Packers Receivers
Aaron Rodgers is getting surgery on his broken collarbone. Brett Hundley didn’t impress as anything more than a decent running quarterback at UCLA so it’s time to bench Nelson/Cobb/Adams next week until we can see if the Packers are able to gameplan around their quarterback limitations.
