ALL PLAYERS LISTED ARE OWNED IN 70% OR LESS OF CBS LEAGUES

 

 


QUARTERBACKS

 

LAMAR JACKSON – RAVENS – AVAILABLE IN 32% OF CBS LEAGUES

Jackson is continuing to get it done as a rusher, and this week he ran for 95 yards on 18 carries and threw for 131 yards with a touchdown and no interceptions. He has a tough matchup against the Chargers next week, but he will be running once again. 

 

JOSH ALLEN – BILLS – AVAILABLE IN 52% OF CBS LEAGUES

Allen was not a dominant as a runner this week, with just 16 yards on nine carries, but he did find the endzone again and that is why he is valuable. Not only did he score a rushing touchdown he threw for 204 yards with another score and no interceptions. He will be facing the Patriots in Week 16 and they have had their issues lately. Don’t be surprised if he has a lot more rushing yards this week. 

 

NICK MULLENS – 49ERS – AVAILABLE IN 81% OF CBS LEAGUES

Nick just keeps chucking the ball and looking good. This week he threw for 275 yards with a touchdown and no interceptions. It is not a favorable matchup this week as he faces a tough Bears defense, so you may want to really think before adding him for a game of this import. 

 

DEREK CARR – RAIDERS – AVAILABLE IN 63% OF CBS LEAGUES

Carr was okay this week, throwing for 263 yards with a touchdown and no interceptions. He gets the Broncos this week and that may be one of the better matchups for the available quarterbacks.

 

CASE KEENUM – BRONCOS – AVAILABLE IN 93% OF CBS LEAUGES

If you are scared of those matchups there is always Case who faces the Raiders this week, giving him the best matchup. 

 

 


RUNNING BACKS

 

DAMIEN WILLIAMS – CHIEFS – AVAILABLE IN 32% OF CBS LEAGUES

If you are lucky enough to still have him available he showed his worth with no Spencer Ware with 10 carries for 49 yards with two touchdowns and caught six passes for another 74 yards. He is getting work in the offense and if you need a running back you should have grabbed him last week. 

 

KALEN BALLAGE – DOLPHINS – AVAILABLE IN 98% OF CBS LEAGUES

Gore is done for the year and the Dolphins went to Ballage over Drake and it paid off last week as he carried 12 times for 123 yards with a touchdown. Look for him to get another good amount of touches this week as he faces off against the Jaguars at home. 

 

ELIAJAH MCGUIRE – JETS – AVAILABLE IN 78% OF CBS LEAGUES

McGuire had a productive week with 18 carries for 42 yards with a touchdown and he caught three passes for 29 yards. He is getting work for the Jets and the goal line work is encouraging. He faces a poor Green Bay defense this week and could put up some nice numbers.

 

JAMAAL WILLIAMS – PACKERS – AVAILABLE IN 79% OF CBS LEAGUES

Aaron Jones got hurt and is questionable for this week and that would mean a heavy workload for Williams. Last week he filled in nicely with 55 yards and a touchdown on 12 carries, while catching five passes for another 42 yards. With no Aaron Jones Williams is a good bet to score some nice points against the Jets this week. 

 

KENNETH DIXON – RAVENS – AVAILABLE IN 49% OF CBS LEAGUES

Dixon continues to see action down the stretch and last week he carried the ball 11 times for 48 yards and caught one pass for two yards. The Ravens face the Chargers this week, so while it does not look like a great matchup he will still get a good amount of touches this week. 

 

NYHEIM HINES – COLTS – AVAILABLE IN 58% OF CBS LEAGUES

Hines is coming off an okay week where he rushed six times for 19 yards and caught four passes for another 45 yards. He faces the Giants at home in Week 16 and that should provide some upside for Hines as the Giants allow 20.7 fantasy points per game to running backs. 

 


 

WIDE RECEIVERS

 

ROBERT FOSTER – BILLS – AVAILABLE IN 93% OF CBS LEAGUES

It is time for all of you to recognize that a Bills receiver can help you win a championship. Foster continues to get it done and last week he hauled in four passes for 108 yards with a touchdown. He now has three 100-yard games in his last five and another with 94 yards and two scores. Get on the train!!!

 

DANTE PETTIS – 49ERS – AVAILABLE IN 33% OF CBS LEAGUES

Pettis is still available in some leagues and last week he had another good game with five catches for 83 yards. It gets a little tougher this week as he faces a tough Bears defense, but the 49ers should be playing from behind and throwing the ball a lot.  

 

ROBBY ANDERSON – JETS – AVAILABLE IN 74% OF CBS LEAGUES

Anderson is getting it together at the right time. Anderson saw a team high 11 targets and caught seven of them for 96 yards and a touchdown. He has now scored a touchdown in each of his last two games and is primed to keep it going against a Packers defense that is allowing 27.2 fantasy points per game to wide receivers, third worst in the league. 

 

JORDY NELSON – RAIDERS – AVAILABLE IN 41% OF CBS LEAGUES

Old man Nelson is still getting it done, and this week he caught six of eight targets for 88 yards. He will be facing a Broncos defense that is middle of road against receivers, and if he continues to see this many targets he is worth the look if you need a receiver for this crucial week. 

 

JOSH REYNOLDS – RAMS – AVAILABLE IN 36% OF CBS LEAGUES

Reynolds saw a team high in targets this week with 12, but only caught five of them for 70 yards. He is still a viable option even though the Cardinals are eighth best at stopping receivers. The Rams need to get back on their winning track and Reynolds does see targets in the redzone as he has three scores this year, but none since Week 11. 

 

TIM PATRICK – BRONCOS – AVAILABLE IN 97% OF CBS LEAGUES

With Demaryius gone and Emmanuel hurt the door has been opened for Patrick who is taking advantage of his opportunity. This week he was targeted eight times and caught five of them for 65 yards. If you are desperate he could be an option as he faces the Raiders this week. 

 


TIGHT ENDS

 

BLAKE JARWIN – COWBOYS – AVAILABLE IN 99% OF CBS LEAGUES
Blake Jarwin had another good showing this week as he was targeted seven times and caught four of the for 45 yards. He has taken over as the #1 tight end option for the Cowboys and they are bound to do better on offense this week as they take on the woeful Tampa Bay Buccaneers.  

 

CHRIS HERNDON – JETS – AVAILABLE IN 37% OF CBS LEAGUES

Herndon got back on track this week with 53 yards on three catches. He will get a Packers defense that has been reeling, so if you made it this far with him this is a better matchup.

 

MATT LACOSSE – BRONCOS – AVAILABLE IN 93% OF CBS LEAGUES

LaCosse was targeted six times this week and hauled in four of them for 43 yards. The Broncos do not have a lot of weapons to throw to and that has opened things up for LaCosse who gets the Raiders this week that allow the fifth most fantasy points to tight ends on a weekly basis.
