Wide Receivers

Probably Owned but worth checking:

Main Adds:

Running Backs

Probably Owned but worth checking:

Main Adds:

  • SEA Mike Davis (2% owned)
    • 25 touches in Week 4! Pete Carroll says Davis will still be in the mix when Chris Carson returns.
  • IND Nyheim Hines (15% owned) @NE
    • Nine catches in Week 4! Has easily been the best Colts back to own thus far.
  • JAX Corey Grant (2% owned)
    • Yeldon is the main beneficiary but Grant is worth keeping an eye on with Fournette sidelined.
  • MIN Latavius Murray (41% owned) @PHI
    • Dalvin Cook, dealing with a hamstring injury, has admitted he’s not 100%. Murray hasn’t been very effective behind a bad Vikings O-line, but RB touches are hard to come by in fantasy football. Especially RB touches on a great offense.
  • MIA Frank Gore (8% owned)
  • TB Ronald Jones (24% owned)
  • IND Robert Turbin (0% owned)
    • Returning from suspension
  • CLE Nick Chubb (19% owned)
  • PHI Wendell Smallwood (5% owned)
    • Clement and Sproles missed Week 4. Jay Ajayi is dealing with injuries but played in Week 4.
  • GB Ty Montgomery (18% owned)
  • HOU D’Onta Foreman (5% owned)
    • Lamar Miller is dealing with undisclosed injury, did not finish the Week 4 game. However, Foreman is just a stash as he isn’t eligible to return from IR until Week 7.
  • DAL Rod Smith (1% owned) vs HOU
    • Report is that Zeke is dealing with knee and ankle injuries. If he to were to miss anytime, Rod Smith would be a big waiver add and fantasy starter.
Tight Ends
  • PIT Vance McDonald (43% owned) vs ATL
  • ARI Ricky Seals-Jones (22% owned) @SF
  • CIN Tyler Kroft (1% owned) & C.J. Uzomah (0% owned) vs MIA
    • Debate on the show whether Kroft or Uzomah is the TE to replace Eifert. In past years, it’s been Kroft, but Uzomah saw many more snaps in Week 4 after Eifert went out.
  • TB Cameron Brate (24% owned) – Week 5 BYE
    • Great add with O.J. Howard set to miss time and Winston returning. However, can your bench handle it with Brate on Bye in Week 5?
  • JAX Austin Seferian-Jenkins (29% owned) @KC
  • NO Ben Watson (60% owned) vs WAS
  • SEA Nick Vannett (0% owned) vs LAR
    • Fellow TE, Will Dissly, is now out for the season.
  • PHI Dallas Goedert (13% owned) vs MIN
  • DAL Geoff Swaim (0% owned) @HOU
    • 12 targets over the last two games

Yes!

Should I try to trade Lamar Miller? I have kerryon Johnson, Philip Lindsay and James Connor but keep underperforming at RB.
