Rishard Matthews WR Tennessee Titans- Hard to believe a titans receiver is getting this much attention but the fact is he has been really good these past few weeks. The titans are looked as a run early and often team and they are but the air attack has been there too. The last 5 weeks Marcus Mariota has thrown at least 2 touchdowns in each game, and in that span he has hit Matthews 5 times. Whenever the Titans get down to the red zone it always seems Mariota is looking his way and that’s what owners dream about. No doubt in my mind that Matthews is the #1 in Tennessee and will prove to be a good flex play here on out.
Dion Lewis RB New England Patriots- A stud last season before he got hurt, posting top 5 PPR running back numbers with his limited time. It is hard to find a running back Bill Belichick likes so much as to keep him on the field as much as possible but he likes Dion Lewis. Lewis is attractive because it’s just another good option in the Brady arsenal, one that will be on the field for most of the game and will run and catch passes at will. This is his first real week of practice coming up they may limit his action this week but they want him on the field as soon as possible, go grab him.
Kapri Bibbs RB Denver Broncos- The legend of fantasy superstar Devonte Booker may have ended abruptly when Bibbs took over the main role on Sunday verse the Raiders. Not very affective in the run game but his big play potential was shown with a 69-yard catch and run touchdown. On the other side Booker did not look like a star with just 30 yards from scrimmage against a friendly defense. Kubiak has already said Bibbs has earned more carries in the offense, a very small sample size for sure but this is the type of guy that could win you your league if he plays well.
Jason Witten TE Dallas Cowboys- Witten will not blow you away with speed or make any dazzling plays, he is more of a safety blanket to Prescott this season. But if you don’t cover him at all it could prove deadly like this Sunday verse the Browns. Witten turned back the clock with 8 catches for 134 yards and a touchdown and not a Browns defender anywhere near him. This is now 2 straight games with a touchdown for Witten and Dak trusts him a lot. In a world where tight ends are so boom or bust… mostly bust, Witten can provide some consistency.
James Starks RB Green Bay Packers- It has come to this point with the Packers backfield but hey Starks can provide some solid work. The fact is that Ty Montgomery has looked very good in the backfield providing good runs and pass catching he almost looks natural back there. But the Packers will likely want to add him back to the outside as a receiver and go with a more traditional running back in Starks. They trust Starks and leaned on him more last season with Eddie Lacy’s struggles. A backfield with 10-15 carries a game on waivers? Ill take that all day.
