All players listed are available in at least 30% of CBS Leagues (Slim Pickings this week)

 

DEDE WESTBROOK – WR – JAGUARS – AVAILABLE IN 43% OF CBS LEAGUES

Westbrook showed that he is for real and can help you in your fantasy playoffs as he caught five passes for 81 yards with a touchdown against the Seahawks. He has a favorable schedule down the stretch with games against the Texans, then at the 49ers and at the Titans.

 

MARQUISE GOODWIN – WR – 49ERS – AVAILABLE IN 42% OF CBS LEAGUES

Hopefully you grabbed Goodwin, because he had another good week with Jimmy G. He finished with six catches for 108 yards. He has quickly become a favorite target of Garoppolo, and has another good matchup next week against the Titans, who allow the seventh most fantasy points to wide receivers. It gets tougher after that with games against Jacksonville and at the Rams to close out the season.

 

ERIC EBRON – TE – LIONS – AVAILABLE IN 64% OF CBS LEAGUES

Ebron has turned it on the down the stretch and had his best game of the season with 10 catches for 94 yards. He has a good schedule the rest of the way with games against the Bears, at the Bengals and home for the Packers.

 

MIKE WALLACE – WR – RAVENS – AVAILABLE IN 47% OF CBS LEAGUES

Plays Sunday Night. Remaining schedule: @Cle, Ind & Cin.

 

JIMMY GAROPPOLO – QB – 49ERS – AVAILABLE IN 59% OF CBS LEAGUES

Jimmy G continues to look impressive. This week he completed 20 of 33 passes for 334 yards with a touchdown and an interception. He has a decent matchup next week against the Titans, but it gets tougher in his last two matchups with the Jaguars and at the Rams.

 

PEYTON BARBER – RB – BUCCANEERS – AVAILABLE IN 50% OF CBS LEAUGES

Doug Martin returned and scored a touchdown, but he also fumbled. Barber was still a big part of the Bucs running attack, but only managed 58 yards on 12 carries. The fumble may mean more touches going forward, and it is divisional matchups the rest of the way against Atlanta, at Carolina and home for the Saints.

 

JOSH MCCOWN – QB – JETS – AVAILABLE IN 39% OF CBS LEAGUES

McCown had a horrible game before injuring his hand, completing six of 12 passes for 46 yards with an interception. If he gets healthy for next week then he will have to put up points at New Orleans, followed by the Chargers at home and at the Patriots to close out the season.

 

O.J. HOWARD – TE – BUCCANEERS – AVAILABLE IN 59% OF CBS LEAGUES

It keeps going back and forth between Howard and Brate, but it looks like the rookie is going to get the majority of targets the rest of the way. He had four catches for 54 yards with a touchdown this week, but he also had a fumble. The Bucs will have to put up points down the stretch with division games against the Falcons, at the Panthers and home for the Saints.

 

THEO RIDDICK – RB – LIONS – AVAILABLE IN 33% OF CBS LEAGUES

With no Abdullah again this week Riddick made some fantasy hay, with 10 carries for 29 yards with two touchdowns, and caught six passes for 64 yards. He has favorable matchups the rest of the way with the Bears next week, followed by a trip to Cincinnati and home for the Packers.

 

COREY COLEMAN – WR – BROWNS – AVAILABLE IN 61% OF CBS LEAGUES

Coleman is benefitting from the return of Josh Gordon, and this week he caught five passes for 62 yards with a touchdown. He has a tough matchup next week with the Ravens, then on the road for the Bears (a good potential matchup) and finally at Pittsburgh.

 

TYRELL WILLIAMS – WR – CHARGERS – AVAILABLE IN 80% OF CBS LEAGUES

Williams had his best game of the season, catching four passes for 132 yards, highlighted by a 75-yard touchdown. Unfortunately he is a bit too inconsistent to trust, but you might be more willing to trust with games at KC, at the Jets and home for the Raiders.

 

TYLER LOCKETT – WR – SEAHAWKS – AVAILABLE IN 71% OF CBS LEAGUES

Lockett had a big game this week with four catches for 90 yards and a touchdown. He is hit or miss, but he has a chance for success with a remaining schedule of the Rams, at the Cowboys and home for the Cardinals.

 

RICKY SEALS-JONES – TE – CARDINALS – AVAILABLE IN 37% OF CBS LEAGUES

It was a come back to earth game for Seals-Jones, with one catch for 20 yards on the day. He still has some upside with games remaining at Washington, home for the Giants and closing out at Seattle.

 

COREY DAVIS – WR – TITANS – AVAILABLE IN 62% OF CBS LEAGUES

The rookie saw more targets this week, but it was more of the same with just three receptions for 29 yards. It is too hard to trust him in your fantasy playoffs. He travels to the 49ers next week, followed by the Rams and Jaguars at home.

 

KERWYNN WILLIAMS – RB – CARDINALS – AVAILABLE IN 85% OF CBS LEAGUES

Williams once again led the way out the backfield with 20 carries for 73 yards, and he caught one pass for 15 yards. He is not a major fantasy threat with Gabbert under center, but he is getting touches. He goes to the Redskins next week, then gets the Giants at home, before finishing the season in Seattle.

 

KENDALL WRIGHT – WR – BEARS – AVAILABLE IN 89% OF CBS LEAGUES

It was Kendall Wright who was the main target of Mitchell Trubisky this week, catching 10 passes for 107 yards. The Bears are opening up the offense more as of late, and their next two weeks could be good for Wright as the Bears go to Detroit, and then face the Browns before closing out at the Vikings.

 

AUSTIN EKELER – RB – CHARGERS – AVAILABLE IN 43% OF CBS LEAGUES

Ekeler is clearly not in a timeshare with Melvin Gordon. He did gain 49 yards on four carries, but most of those came at the end of the half on a 33-yard run. His remaining schedule is at the Chiefs, at the Jets and home for the Raiders.

 

ROD SMITH – RB – COWBOYS – AVAILABLE IN 72% OF CBS LEAGUES

Smith had a huge game this week with six carries for 47 yards with a score, and five catches for 113 yards with an 81-yard touchdown. You may want to try to catch lightning in a bottle next week at the Raiders, but Ezekiel Elliott will be back for Week 16.

 

WAYNE GALLMAN – RB – GIANTS – AVAILABLE IN 92% OF CBS LEAGUES

The rookie saw more action this week, with 12 carries for 59 yards and seven receptions for 40 yards. He may see a similar workload the rest of the way as the Giants try to figure out what they have in Gallman. He does not have the easiest schedule remaining with games against the Eagles, at the Cardinals and home for the Redskins.

 

MITCHELL TRUBISKY – QB – BEARS – AVAILABLE IN 85% OF CBS LEAGUES

Trubisky is finally being allowed to throw the ball, and this week he completed 25 of 32 passes for 271 yards with a touchdown and no interceptions. He has a chance to do well in his next two matchups at Detroit and home for the Browns, before closing out at the Vikings.

 

ADAM SHAHEEN – TE – BEARS – AVAILABLE IN 98% OF CBS LEAUGES

The Bears are throwing the ball more, and Shaheen is a big target in the redzone. He caught four passes for 44 yards with a score this week, and should get a decent amount of targets the rest of the season. He goes to Detroit, then gets the Browns at home before a final game at the Vikings.

 

COLE BEASLEY – WR – COWBOYS – AVAILABLE IN 63% OF CBS LEAGUES

Beasley had one big catch this week, and finished with three receptions for 59 yards. He faces a poor Raiders defense next week, but then gets the Seahawks and a road game against the Eagles to close it out.
