Youth Samson Ebukam Jersey
Six teams — including all of the AFC East — are off this week. But besides the Patriots Youth Samson Ebukam Jersey , no other team has essential fantasy starters to replace.San Francisco’s break forces you to fill in for running back Matt Breida and tight end George Kittle. Cleveland’s only regular fantasy starters are Nick Chubb and Jarvis Landry. Still, you must deftly navigate the waiver wire for potential playoff contributors, especially with trade deadlines about to pass in most leagues.RUNNING BACKSJAYLEN SAMUELS, Steelers (Owned in 0.2 percent of leagues): Le’Veon Bell is no longer relevant in Pittsburgh, so now is the time to grab James Conner’s handcuff. When Conner left last week’s game against the Panthers, Samuels scored his first NFL touchdown. This is the time of year to start cutting players from your bench that you will never comfortably start and roster the immediate backups of your best RBs.THEO RIDDICK, Lions (19.5): He has started to re-emerge since the Lions traded Golden Tate, working in the slot and replacing the departed WR as a key target to move the chains. Riddick is purely an add in point-per-reception leagues, but a viable one. The upside is not high, but with 13 catches for 96 yards in his last two games, there is an adequate floor for your flex spot.RASHAAD PENNY, Seahawks (13.1): The rookie delivered his best performance to date in Week 10, rushing for 108 yards on a dozen carries and registering his first NFL scoring run. Penny displayed the explosive abilities that made him a first round pick. But you have to be patient with him, as Chris Carson may return to the mix and Mike Davis is the team’s best receiver at RB. Penny may ride your bench in the near future as part of a committee, but Carson is oft-injured and Penny may eventually ascend because he is the most talented RB of the three.WIDE RECEIVERSANTHONY MILLER Youth Cooper Kupp Jersey , Bears (13.4): Another potentially explosive rookie, Miller is healthy and starting to make his presence felt in the rapidly improving Chicago offense. He came through with his best performance so far in Week 10, catching five passes for 122 yards and a TD. Miller has scored twice in his last three games and three in his last five. He has yet to display a wider range of his big-play skills, and he may soon approach fantasy WR3 status.DONTE MONCRIEF, Jaguars (15.1); Fantasy owners seem to avoid Jacksonville WRs as a rule, but Moncrief has at least performed respectably enough to make him a quality bye week and injury fill-in. In a dire situation, if you have to start Moncrief, he will provide good enough PPR numbers. He has four double-figure PPR performances in his past six games, and two of those have been 20-point outings.JOSH REYNOLDS, Rams (1.1): Cooper Kupp is done for the year with a knee injury, so you have to take a cautious flier on Reynolds again, who was mediocre in terms of catches and yardage last time Kupp was out but did deliver a two-TD game in Week 8. Reynolds will be fourth, and maybe even fifth in targets for the Rams now, but you have to take a waiver shot on a player with more possible opportunity in a great offense.TIGHT ENDSJONNU SMITH, Titans (0.6): Marcus Mariota has started to raise his game recently White Robert Woods Jersey , and Smith has been involved enough to make savvy fantasy owners raise an eyebrow. Smith has scored in each of his past two games and has the abilities to start contributing more often on key passing downs.GERALD EVERETT, Rams (1.4): The Los Angeles tight ends could also benefit from the absence of Kupp. Everett scored in Week 10 and along with Tyler Higbee, could start to get more offensive attention from Jared Goff in the weeks ahead.NICK VANNETT, Seahawks (9.5): He has scored in two consecutive games, as he is getting more attention from Russell Wilson in red zone situations. He’s not much more than a TE2 in fantasy but can certainly fill in on a bye week.QUARTERBACKLAMAR JACKSON, Ravens (6.7): Injury issues and mediocre play appear to be putting Joe Flacco on the hot seat. While Robert Griffin III could get a chance to move in first, Jackson should get his chance if the Ravens get booted out of the playoff race soon, and his dual threat abilities will make him an intriguing fantasy option. The offensive line isn’t always going to be impregnable. In fact, for the second time in three games, there was consistent heat applied to quarterback Jared Goff. It was actually interesting to watch Goff in the first half and consider how the new Goff would have faired behind the subpar protection from his rookie season in 2016. Goff, as always, showed toughness and resilience, but the timing of the passing game seemed off at times. The Packers had the happy combo of good coverage and good pressure, leaving us consideringarrival times of chickens and eggs, and which came first. Frankly Youth Rob Havenstein Jersey , the whole opening half felt like the twilight zone, right down to the play calling, which lacked its signature jet sweep action and screen passes alike.So the Rams rode running back Todd Gurley, who is really hard to keep down for an entire game. Unlike the 2016 version of Todd, Gurley now runs full-bore ahead, even when there isn’t much ground to be gained. Gurley obviously has a knack for cashing in touchdowns and gliding downfield behind great zone blocking schemes, but just as importantly, Gurley is becoming a player who can continuously put pressure on a defense to make plays and maintain discipline.Fans and pundits often debate how to distribute credit for the Rams offensive success; with Sean McVay, Jared Goff, Todd Gurley, and the offensive line, all getting tall props. The Rams receivers are also often recognized as a group, but it’s interesting to consider the role that Cooper Kupp has assumed, particularly when watching the offense in his absence over the last two games. The Rams scored plenty against the San Francisco 49ers and Green Bay Packers without Kupp, but they seemed to lack the rhythm and force that they displayed against the Seattle Seahawks or Minnesota Vikings earlier in the season. Kupp has clearly improved upon a strong rookie season Youth Austin Blythe Jersey , and has become Jared Goff’s security blanket. If he can return to the lineup this week against the New Orleans Saints, then the offense may end up firing on all cylinders again.On the other side of the ball, we are now halfway through the season so it is fair to begin taking inventory. Entering the season, there were plenty of question marks regarding the Rams unproven fleet of linebackers. So far, Cory Littleton has been a hit. Samson Ebukam has been decent, but far from an impact pass rusher, and perhaps would be better suited to be the team’s Edge 2. Whether due to injuries or pedigree, Matt Longacre has seemed like more of a serviceable backup than a starter. Ramik Wilson has played well, but with Mark Barron back he didn’t receive any defensive snaps against Green Bay.Then there’s the secondary. According to Pro Football Focus, John Johnson III is currently having the second best season of any safety in the NFL. Lamarcus Joyner has played decently, though he hasn’t as many impact plays as we might have expected from him. It will be interesting to see what the Rams do regarding Joyner when he becomes an unrestricted free agent after this season. Any decision regarding the underperforming Marcus Peters can be put off until a larger sample size is collected, since the Rams already have picked up his 5th year option. Regarding the secondary, any conclusions would probably best be put off until Aqib Talib returns, since the unit seemed pretty tough when they were all on the field together in the beginning of the season.
