Austin Ekeler $3700 vs ARI: Gordon said he’s going to play, but nothing is official yet. He could also play and be limited. Either way I think you can take Ekeler in this spot.
Josh Adams $3800 vs NYG: Punt play at RB if you need it. The Eagles need to figure something out, so they can start by leaning on Adams in the running game. Should be a nice bounceback spot for the Eagles too here.
Matt Breida $5700 @ TB: This is looking like my favorite play of the week here. Not only is TB bad against the run, but this is the healthiest Breida has been all season. Also, he’s playing in his hometown this week in front of the parents.
Marlon Mack $5500 vs MIA: As mentioned above the Dolphins are bad. I can definitely seeing this one get out of hand and the Colts turn to the running game to waste the clock.
Christian McCaffrey $7900 vs SEA: Not a play that I will be prioritizing on fitting in my lineup, but he is still my favorite higher priced play. Funchess is most likely out in this one too so that could give Christian a couple more targets out of the backfield.
James Conner $7800 @ DEN: Great bounceback spot here for Conner. Game script and a concussion slowed him down the last 2 weeks with his sub par performances. Looking at the boxscore ins’t going to tell you that. Hopefully the game log does scare people away because he should be firmly in play here.
Saquon Barkley $9100 @ PHI: I don’t hate the play, but he is just too pricey here. Still he can’t be ignored and if you want to squeeze him in your lineup I ahve no problem with that.
Nick Chubb $6300 @ CIN: Cincy has been disappointing on defense in recent weeks. Chubb has been looking good on offense in recent weeks. Now he doesn’t catch many passes out of the backfield which does limit his upside some, but he is still one of my favorite runningbacks to target this week.
Lesean McCoy $4200 vs JAX: This is way to cheap of a price tag here. Plus he is coming off a 27.75 fantasy point performance last week. I think this game should stay close, and if that is the case, Lesean should get plenty of touches.
David Johnson $7300 @ LAC: Since switching offensive coordinators David Johnson has had 20+ touches a game. That trend should continue here. Chargers lost their DT this week as well as one of their inside linebackers so they are thin in the middle of the field. The injuries should only benefit DJ more.
