James White (PPR)
If Dion Lewis isn’t available, James White is a solid consolation. Throw the last few weeks out the window, Mr. Deflategate has returned from his 4 game suspension. Can’t judge a receiving back by it’s 2nd or 3rd string cover. And with Dion Lewis sidelined for the next month look for James White to take full advantage of Brady’s presence and Dion’s absence.
Chris Thompson (PPR)
Let’s take a look at snaps for a moment shall we? Chris Thompson is in on 51.5% of Washington’s offensive snaps. Matt Jones is in on 46.4% for reference. He’s a diamond in the rough with a 5 point floor and a 10 point ceiling. I look at Chris Thompson and I see a startable solution on a running back depleted roster and a definite stash for those looking for RB3 upside at a Waiver Wire price.
C.J. Spiller (PPR)
I know I’ll get a lot of flack for this one, but I think C.J. Spiller is a legitimate piece in an offense that actually knows how to use talent. With Rawls out for the remainder of the month, a change of pace guy is necessary to keep C Mike fresh. C.J. has the physical tools to do damage, and now he’s in an offense that actually uses talent. I’d consider him to be roster spot worthy if you have C Mike, or if you just really need a lotto ticket at the RB position.
Matt Asiata (Standard | PPR)
This guy is not going to win you any brownie points from the rest of your league, but he will fall into the endzone from time to time. If you’re a gambler, or a McKinnon owner, Asiata should be able to secure himself a roster spot. He has a floor of 0 and a ceiling of 8 making him the definition of boom or bust, but desperate times call for desperate measures.
Jeremy Kerley (PPR)
Most people were probably expecting Inman at the #1 spot but Kerley has seen 6 or more targets since the season kicked off. If consistency is a word you like to hear in fantasy, then Kerley is as close as it gets from someone on your Waiver Wire. As Blaine Gabbert gets the hang of this whole QB thing, Kerley’s targets should begin to pay dividends. Is he consistent? No, not right now. Could he be? Yes.
Dontrelle Inman (PPR)
11 Targets. 7 Receptions. Let’s get it. Dontrelle Inman might be the 3rd WR on the Chargers. He might be the 4th option behind Travis Benjamin, Tyrell Williams, & Hunter Henry (until Gates is healthy). But he also had a Big Big night on Sunday. Inman was fantasy relevant for most of last year which might not mean anything to anyone, but I am a firm believer that history repeats itself. And if it does, Inman could remain relevant for weeks to come. He’s a deep league stash / desperation FLEX play as of right now.
Corey Coleman (Standard | PPR)
Hide him with the weed in your sock drawer, Corey Coleman is a sweet sweet piece to bench for the next 2 weeks. The rookie out of Baylor came alive in his first 2 starts but a broken hand kept him sidelined the past two weeks. He will return for until his match-up with Cincy on October 23rd. If you’re a Decker owner, get him now while supplies last .Until then a band aid like Inman or Kerley will cover up the hole Decker left in your lineup. With Josh Gordon in rehab for the rest of the season Corey Coleman will eat, and boy is he hungry.
Pierre Garcon (Standard | PPR)
Garcon has received 5 or more looks in each of the past 4 games. Inside the 20 yard line he has as many targets as Mike Evans & AJ Green. Inside the 10 yard line his targets match Jordan Reed, Odell Beckham, & Allen Robinson. He only converted on 1 target while inside the 20, and hasn’t converted any within the 10 but the opportunity is there. And like my Dad always says: “Luck is what happens when preparation meets opportunity.” If he can remember how to catch the ball this guy will be a great asset to any team but for right now he’s nothing more than a WR lotto ticket.
