Danny Woodhead, RB, Baltimore Ravens
Woodhead is eligible to return in Week 11, coming off the injured reserve. The Ravens have seemingly found their ground and pound back, though Javorius Allen hasn’t run away with the team’s pass-catching back job in Woodhead’s absence. I expect Woodhead to return and take Allen’s place atop the depth chart.
Corey Clement, RB, Philadelphia Eagles
This may be chasing fantasy points a bit after Clement logged a three-touchdown day against the surprisingly defenseless Broncos Sunday. Clemen led the team in carries with 12, rushing for a 51 yards and two scores. He added one catch for 15 yards and a score. The upside here is that Clement is being used in the redzone. He has scored and had at least 50 rushing yards in two of his last three games. We'll see if that changes once new acquisition Jay Ajayi learns the Eagles’ system but it’s hard to ignore what Clement is doing right now.
Terrance Williams, WR, Dallas Cowboys
Williams caught nine passes for 141 yards against Kansas City’s leaky defense the third-most of his career. The big news is that Williams teammate Dez Bryant suffered an ankle injury in Sunday’s game. Monday it was revealed that Bryant is also dealing with a knee injury. Williams gains immediate fantasy relevance.
Matt Forte, RB, New York Jets
In the Jets game against the Falcons two Sundays ago, New York blew a fourth-quarter lead and lost to Atlanta. After the game, Forte spoke up about his team’s play calling, saying he was surprised they didn't run it more. After speaking to offensive coordinator John Morton, Forte carried the ball 14 times for 77 yards and two touchdowns last Thursday against the Bills. With that kind of production I think Forte will get more work down in the next few weeks.
Robert Woods, WR, Los Angeles Rams
Woods had a monster game Sunday against the Giants, catching 4 passes for 70 yards and two scores. He took a wide receiver screen on 3rd and 33 52 yards to the house. Obviously, I don’t believe Woods is going to light up the stat sheet for two touchdowns every week but the yards have been there for Woods on a weekly basis. He’s had at least 59 receiving yards since Week 5. He could make for an nice flex option, especially during bye weeks.
Ted Ginn Jr, WR, New Orleans Saints
We’re coming up on ten weeks into the season and I’m finally sold on Ginn being a big part of this Saints offense. As was the case with Woods, the scores aren’t always there but the yardage has been steady. Ginn has eclipsed 50 receiving yards in five of his eight games this season and has averaged 83.5 receiving yards in his last four games. He has two touchdowns over that span.
Marquise Goodwin, WR, San Francisco 49ers
Corey Coleman, WR, Cleveland Browns
Cole Beasley, WR, Dallas Cowboys
Thomas Rawls, RB, Seattle Seahawks
Week 10 Takeaway
Eating a “L”- The Buccaneers, who prior to the beginning of the season, were hailed as sneaky picks for a Super Bowl are imploding before our very eyes. From the vanishing offense to Mike Evans losing his cool to Jameis Winston’s extremely odd pre game speech, everything seems to be going awry in Tampa Bay. While Mike Evans remains a top-ten fantasy option at wide receiver for now, DeSean Jackson is in the mid-thirties at the position. Doug Martin, whom many fantasy owners waited out the first four weeks of the season to see him in action put up his worst statline of his truncated season last Sunday, rushing for just seven yards on eight carries. Winston meanwhile, is set to miss a few weeks to heal up from his shoulder surgery. I think he and Jackson are droppable at this point, of course you ride it out with Evans (as he was likely a first- or second-round pick for most), but Martin is interesting. Peyton Barber led the team in carries last week and head coach Dirk Koetter said he could earn more touches. It’s not good news for Martin but ultimately I think fantasy owners are stuck with him.
