Joe Flacco – In 4 home games Joe is averaging 317.8 yards and 1.8 TD’s. In 4 road games Joe is averaging 179.8 yards and .8 TD’s. Good news, he’s at home against the Raiders this week and they allow the 9th most fantasy points to QB’s. He's the perfect bye week replacement for Rodgers and RGIII
Ryan Tannehill – This week Tannehill faces Tennessee who allows the 3rd most fantasy points, 4th most yards, most passing TD’s and most completions to QB’s. He’s coming off a 290 yard 1 TD effort against the Colts, so a 2 TD performance is not out of the question against the Titans.
Marcel Reece – When McFadden and Goodson went down it was Reece who took over as the primary back. He caught 8 balls for 95 yards! If McFadden and Goodson are out this week, he is a high upside flex and RB2 upside in PPR against the Ravens who allow the 8th most fantasy points to RB’s.
Joique Bell – Last week’s flier, Bell carried the ball 13 times for 73 yards and 1 TD. Most of his damage occurred in mop up duties against the Jaguars, but that’s likely the case again this week against a Vikings team that may not have Percy Harvin. Bell is also used mostly on 3rd downs and the Vikings allow the 4th most receiving yards to RB’s.
James Starks – Packers are on bye Week 10, but Starks got the start and 17 carries in week 9.
Mike Goodson – Goodson has the upside if McFadden is out an extended period of time, but Goodson is dealing with his own ankle injury. Note: soft run schedule ahead.
Emmanuel Sanders – With Antonio Brown’s availability in doubt (“mild” high ankle sprain), Sanders will likely draw the start this week opposite Mike Wallace on Monday Night Football. With Brown and possibly Rainey out, Sanders offers upside in return yardage leagues as well.
Danario Alexander – With Meachem unsure to return against the Bucs, Alexander could draw the start after Norv Turner said he will maintain a big role going forward. The Bucs are allowing the 3rd most fantasy points to WR’s and second most yards (they already had their bye, Wash who has given up the most has their bye this week).
T.Y. Hilton and Donnie Avery:
Hilton - 17 targets in last two games and coming off a 102 yard 1 TD effort against the Dolphins.
Avery – 15 targets in last two games and coming off a 108 yard effort against the Dolphins.
Both of these receivers are taking advantage of the attention that Reggie Wayne is getting and Coby Fleener’s absence are are serviceable bye week WR3’s.
Golden Tate – 13 targets, 11 receptions and 2 TD’s in last two games. Tate is at home this week and he has 4 TD’s in last 3 home games.
Brandon Myers – In the last 4 weeks since the bye, Myers is averaging 8.25 targets and 5.75 receptions a game. With a hurting running game and Carson Palmer coming off a 414 yard 4 TD effort Myers should continue being a PPR asset as he faces the Ravens this week who allow the 6th most receiving yards and 12th most fantasy points to TE’s.
