Kurt Cousins QB Washington Redskins- Cousins went absolutely off on Sunday night football totaling 375 yards and 3 touchdowns through the air. Hard to believe but the Redskins dismantled the Packers defense and they had no answer. Cousins looking forward doesn’t have the most favorable schedule but his play has earned him top 10 numbers this far this season and should be owned in all leagues. The Redskins offense is in hyper drive right now and owners should ride them while they’re hot.
Rob Kelley RB Washington Redskins- On a night where his QB Cousins had a career day his new running back did not disappoint either. 137 yards and 3 touchdowns for the rookie on 20 plus carries. As Matt Jones watches from the sideline as a healthy scratch Rob Kelley ran away with the starting job and will hold onto it for the rest of the season. I would play Kelley with confidence as an RB2 the rest of the season based on the opportunities that he will have. Should be the #1 claim in all leagues.
Jared Cook TE Green Bay Packers- Coming off a six-game disappearance Cook was a focal point of the Packers offense 6 catches on 11 targets for 105 yards and a touchdown. Cook isn’t known for being a big threat nor are any tight ends on the Packers but this game Rodgers looked to him often and that is a good sign. Cook should be monitored as this could be a one week boom but as we have seen Zach Miller and Gronk already go out with injuries, tight ends are scarce and this is a decent option.
Tyler Boyd WR Cincinnati Bengals- Another loss for fantasy owners this week as A.J. Green went down and is likely out for the year. The next man up for the Bengals is Boyd and he is a speedy rookie and had a lot of hype this offseason and now he gets his chance. It could be a painful rest of the year for Bengals fans but Boyd and Lafell should see plenty of targets and scoring opportunities for the rest of the year. He should probably fly under the radar in most leagues so low waiver claims still have a chance.
