Week 12 byes: Cardinals, Chargers, Chiefs, Vikings
Colin Kaepernick be aware: Kaepernick, who carried out a exercise on Saturday, is on the market within the ESPN participant pool and is on the market for individuals who wish to add him through waivers, significantly for individuals who play in dynasty and/or keeper leagues.
Deebo Samuel, WR, San Francisco 49ers (25.1%): A star has been born in San Francisco, as Samuel has stacked collectively back-to-back 100-plus yard receiving video games, stepping right into a shining position whereas Emmanuel Sanders admirably performs by means of substantial ache. Samuel has back-to-back video games with eight catches and figures to be a prime passing-game possibility for the 49ers going ahead.
DeVante Parker, WR, Miami Dolphins (44.7%): What extra does Parker need to do to get off this checklist! Each week he appears to make the column, but he can’t cross the 50% threshold. He put collectively his third recreation in his final 5 outings with a minimum of 10 targets and has seven straight video games with a minimum of 10 fantasy factors. Add this man!
Jonathan Williams, RB, Indianapolis Colts (0.0%): Williams noticed some motion previous to Marlon Mack struggling a damaged hand, however his position actually elevated following the damage, and he netted 116 dashing yards in a standout effort. With Mack out for Thursday evening, per colleague Adam Schefter, Williams seems to be set to step into the Colts’ lead-back position till Mack returns.
Sam Darnold, QB, New York Jets (12.4%): One other robust week from Darnold is a precursor to a terrific three-game schedule stretch: the Raiders, Bengals after which Dolphins are on faucet for the second-year signal-caller, who’s coming off of a 25.4-point effort. There’s loads to love about Darnold’s ability set, and he is solely going to proceed to construct his confidence by the week. I mission him as a top-15 quarterback for every of the subsequent three weeks, and he ought to be added for anybody who must stream a quarterback due to a bye or a nasty matchup.
Bo Scarbrough, RB, Detroit Lions (0.0%): The operating again carousel in Detroit spun once more in Week 11, as Scarborough scored the workforce’s opening landing and dealt with 14 carries, a workforce excessive. He did not see a single goal, which definitely is a mitigating think about general worth. That being stated, he ran successfully, and the Lions have been trying to find somebody to deal with their lead-back roll. He is a non-PPR consideration and a deeper league add too.
Derrius Guice, RB, Washington Redskins (45.8%): Guice returned to motion in Week 11 after lacking eight video games and supplied one of many few offensive sparks the Redskins have had in over a month. He dealt with seven carries and turned a brief move right into a 45-yard catch-and-run landing. Adrian Peterson nonetheless figures into the combo prominently, however maybe Guice earns increasingly more carries as a workforce that ought to be targeted on the longer term tries to develop him additional.
Monday by means of Friday, host Mina Kimes brings you an inside have a look at essentially the most fascinating tales at ESPN, as informed by the highest reporters and insiders on the planet. Pay attention
Randall Cobb, WR, Dallas Cowboys (29.8%): It is three straight video games with a minimum of six catches for Cobb, who has additionally gone over 100 yards in back-to-back video games. The Cowboys’ passing offense is completely unimaginable nowadays, with the power to maintain a number of wideouts in any given week. Whereas Cobb is just not a must-start in 10-team leagues, he is a consideration in 12 workforce or bigger leagues that use three receiver spots.
Chris Conley, WR, Jacksonville Jaguars (11.6%): Whereas D.J. Chark stays the person within the Jacksonville receiver group, Conley has grow to be an element of late. He has 4 straight video games with a minimum of seven targets and double-digit scoring in three of these 4. The times of Jacksonville grounding and pounding are behind us, with a high-octane passing offense that offers Conley sufficient quantity as a deeper league flex consideration.
Kyle Rudolph, TE, Minnesota Vikings (40.9%): Over the previous 5 video games, Rudolph has a complete of 5 touchdowns and a minimum of three catches in every recreation. Quarterback Kirk Cousins has performed rock strong of late, and with Adam Thielen out as a consequence of a hamstring difficulty, there’s been extra work to go round. The Vikes head right into a bye this week, however Rudolph is within the weekly starter dialog going ahead.
Jacob Hollister, TE, Seattle Seahawks (14.2%): With three touchdowns over his previous two video games, Hollister doubtless has earned himself a task going ahead with Seattle. There’s a good probability that Ed Dickson might be activated previous to the workforce’s recreation in Philadelphia, however I imagine that Hollister may have a superb opportunity to keep up his presence within the passing recreation going ahead, making him a prime 15-ish tight finish possibility.
Noah Fant, TE, Denver Broncos (13.7%): The Broncos first-round choose has been busy of late, together with a career-high 11 targets in Week 11, plus two carries. He is an element after the catch and may emerge as a extremely good purple zone goal too. One other tight finish to contemplate for those who’ve been juggling choices on the place.
Jeff Driskel, QB, Detroit Lions (2.3%): Searching for a Week 12 streamer? Driskel ought to be in your radar, as he’s coming off of a stellar 27.5-point effort. Given his athleticism, Driskel could be a constant risk to run, and the Lions face a poor Redskins workforce in Week 12.
