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

 

 

PLAYERS WITH A LEGITIMATE CHANCE TO HELP YOU

 

NICK FOLES – QB – EAGLES – AVAILABLE IN 61% OF CBS LEAGUES

Foles showed that he is ready to step in and bring you the championship next week. He completed 24 of 38 passes for 237 yards with four touchdowns and no interceptions. He gets another favorable matchup next week at home against the Raiders.

 

KEELAN COLE – WR – JAGUARS – AVAILABLE IN 98% OF CBS LEAGUES

Cole had a huge week with seven catches for 186 yards and long touchdown. He has now improved his yardage by at least 50 yards and scored a touchdown in each of his last three games. He hits the road to take on the 49ers next week, so you can feel good about him continuing the touchdown streak, especially if Marqise Lee can’t go.

 

MIKE WALLACE – WR – RAVENS – AVAILABLE IN 46% OF CBS LEAGUES

Wallace was able to do some damage against the Browns, catching six passes for 89 yards. He has an even better matchup next week at home against the Colts. This is a prime matchup for championship week.

 

MARTAVIS BRYANT – WR – STEELERS – AVAILABLE IN 47% OF CBS LEAGUES

Antonio Brown left with a nasty injury and that means that Bryant can come out of the doghouse. He caught four passes for 59 yards with a touchdown and he gets the Texans in Houston next week.

 

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

Jimmy G was good once again, as he completed 31 of 41 passes for 381 yards with one touchdown and no interceptions. Marquise Goodwin has become a nice weapon for him and he is doing a good job of spreading the ball around, although he will have a very difficult matchup next week at home against the Jaguars.

 

ERIC EBRON – TE – LIONS – AVAILABLE IN 56% OF CBS LEAGUES

If you need a consistent play at tight end with a chance for a touchdown then Ebron is your man. He caught five passes for 33 yards with a touchdown this week, and he has a great matchup against a Bengals defense that is completely beat up.

 

CHARLES CLAY – TE – BILLS – AVAILABLE IN 61% OF CBS LEAGUES

Just like Ebron, Clay is a consistent play with the chance for a touchdown. He caught five passes for 68 yards, and he will be called on to do even more next week as the Bills hit the road to face the Patriots.

 

DEDE WESTBROOK – WR – JAGUARS – AVAILABLE IN 45% OF CBS LEAGUES

Dede had a hard time getting going this week, only catching two passes for 21 yards. Marqise Lee might be out again next week, and it is a favorable matchup at the 49ers.

 

KERWYNN WILLIAMS – RB – CARDINALS – AVAILABLE IN 61% OF CBS LEAGUES

Williams is getting plenty of touches, and this week he carried 17 times for 61 yards. While he is getting most of the carries, he is not doing it as a receiver. The Cardinals get a good matchup next week with the Giants coming to town, so there is a better than average chance he could find the endzone.

 

WAYNE GALLMAN – RB – GIANTS – AVAILABLE IN 90% OF CBS LEAGUES

The rookie is getting more looks down the stretch, and had eight carries for 39 ayrds and six catches for 40 yards against the Eagles. He is giving way to Darkwa at the goal line, but if you are in PPR and need some help Gallman could provide a decent game next week at the Cardinals.

 

PEYTON BARBER – RB – BUCCANEERS – AVAILABLE IN 57% OF CBS LEAUGES

Barber plays on Monday night, and it is not clear how the division of touches will go between him and Martin. If he gets a good amount of touches he could have some value, but you should be concerned about a road game in Carolina with one less day of rest.

 

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

Wright has emerged as the favorite target of Mitch Trubisky. This week he caught seven passes for 81 yards. The Bears are opening up the offense more here to see exactly what they havein Trubisky, and Wright will have a favorable matchup at home next week against the Browns.

 

ELI MANNING – QB – GIANTS – AVAILABLE IN 62% OF CBS LEAGUES

Since returning from his benching, Eli has been playing much better football. He completed 37 of 57 passes for 434 yards with three touchdowns and one interception against the Eagles. The Giants don’t have much in the form of a running game, so expect Eli to be throwing a lot again next week as he visits the Cardinals.

 

 

PLAYERS WITH SOME UPSIDE, BUT YOU ARE REACHING AND SHOULDN’T

 

JAYDON MICKENS – WR – JAGUARS – AVAILABLE IN 100% OF CBS LEAGUES

Jaydon Mickens burst onto the scene this week, catching four passes for 61 yards with two of them going for touchdowns. This was mostly due to Marqise Lee missing the game, so don’t count on this production, even if Lee misses next week when Mickens visits the 49ers. You would be wishing on a star.

 

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

Coleman has been a disappointment and this week he only caught one pass for 16 yards. He does have a good matchup in Chicago facing the Bears, but this is what I mean by reaching for a guy.

 

TYRELL WILLIAMS – WR – CHARGERS – AVAILABLE IN 77% OF CBS LEAGUES

Williams came right back to earth after having a big game, only catching three passes for 31 yards. He is part of a quagmire of receivers after Keenan Allen, and while he does have a nice matchup at the Jets next week he is not worth the reach.

 

TYLER LOCKETT – WR – SEAHAWKS – AVAILABLE IN 70% OF CBS LEAGUES

Locket was totally ineffective this week with only two catches for eight yards. He is not worth starting next week at the Cowboys so don’t reach.  

 

COREY DAVIS – WR – TITANS – AVAILABLE IN 65% OF CBS LEAGUES

Davis has just failed to live up to the potential this season, and this week was no different as he only caught three passes for 28 yards against a poor 49ers defense. You should leave him on the waiver wire after his failure to produce as he has a tough matchup against the Rams at home.

 

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

Trubisky was finally able to let it loose once the game was out of hand this week, and finished completing 31 of 46 passes for 314 yards with one touchdown and three interceptions. They need to let him air it out with two weeks left in the season, and the Browns at home is a good opponent to try it out on, but you shouldn’t.
