WR - Robby Anderson - NYJ vs. Phi - The Eagles secondary needs to get together Saturday night and watch Rocky, Invincible and Silver Linings Playbook all in one sitting for motivation. Because right now they are playing like they are watching Beaches before games. They are the worst in the league from a fantasy standpoint, giving up more than 32 points, on average, to opposing wide receivers. It’s still Luke Falk under center but even he will be able to get something done with Anderson against the Eagles. Some people likely dropped Anderson in your leagues so you may be able to pick him up this week, a week before Darnold is set to return. So it’s smart to bottom fish him here.
WR - Auden Tate - Cin vs. Ari - This guy is a beast, resembling Keyshawn Johnson at 6’ 5” and 228 pounds. Watching Monday night’s game, you could see Andy Dalton going back to him more and more. He hasn’t put big points on the board yet, but his breakout is coming. Especially now, as John Ross is on the IR with a shoulder injury and A.J. Green is out for at least another three weeks. He’ll have an easy match-up this week against the Cardinals, who have trouble defending against big bodies (See their stats against TEs). Pick him up if he’s on your waiver wire, which is likely.
TE Ricky Seals-Jones - Cle vs. SF - This guy has a name like a blues pianist and he’ll be making beautiful music with Baker Mayfield Monday night if Jarvis Landry is out with a concussion. It’s looking that way. The SF defense is playing well and will be heavily focused on stopping Odell Beckham Jr., allowing Seals-Jones to snipe a TD once again like he did last week.
RB Tarik Cohen - Chi vs Oak - Cohen got some love in drafts because he was expected to be a PPR monster even with rookie David Montgomery handling the straight running duties. But then Trubisky stopped passing to him. Now Chase Daniel is under center with Trubisky out with injury. First pointed out by FootballGuys.com, Daniel and Cohen played well together when he filled in last year, with Cohen notching 12 receptions one game.
