Another unpredictable week in the NFL with Deshaun Watson putting up 35.5 points against the Chiefs, the Jaguars defense/special teams put up 26 points, and Melvin Gordon put up 28 points, while stars like Ben Roethlisberger had 2.6 and Todd Gurley had 3. New pick ups have emerged on the waiver wire along with new bust that you should sit always. Point system done by basic non-ppr ESPN point system.

Must Start

Kareem Hunt against the Steelers. The Steelers are struggling, no other way to say it, on the other hand, the Chiefs are thriving. The Steelers have given up the 5th most rushing yards this season and will have to stop the extremely talented Hunt in the Kansas City back field. The Chiefs should go up early on the Steelers which will result in lots of carries for Hunt.

Devin Funchess against the Eagles. Ranked as the 14th best wideout in football, Funchess is still widely considered WR2 for the Panthers, which means the Eagles, who have given up the 3rd most passing yards this season will most likely play their second strongest corner against Funchess. With injuries hitting the Eagles secondary especially to their big name corner, Ronald Darby, Funchess has a chance to have his point total to spike this week.

Carson Palmer against the the Buccaneers. Carson Palmer has once again emerged as one of the the most consistent fantasy quarterbacks in the league. The Buccaneers have allowed the 7th most passing yards this season, and keep in mind, they have played one less game than most of the NFL ( Equal amount with Dolphins, Falcons, Broncos, Saints, and redskins). Even with the addition of Adrian Peterson, Palmers numbers will look to go north of 20 points this week as Peterson will still need to learn the playbook and practice with the team some more.

Sit

Sammy Watkins against the Jaguars. Watkins was shut down last week by the Seattle secondary, putting up 0 points, and travels to Jacksonville this week. The Jaguars have allowed the 4th least amount of passing yards this season and has emerged as one of the NFL’s most feared secondaries. Watkins point total this week definitely has the potential to take a massive hit this week.

Christian McCaffrey against the Eagles. Only averaging 7.5 points per game this season, McCaffrey has been posting below par numbers for fantasy owners. Coming up against an Eagles defense that has allowed the 3rd least amount of rushing yards, I don’t see why any patterns would change this week. Look to see a point total below 7 this week for McCaffrey against a solid Eagles run defense.

Minnesota Vikings D/ST against the Packers. The Packers offense has looked really good in recent weeks posting up two back-to-back 35 point games. Aaron Rodgers has looked incredible and the Packers are starting to click. The Vikings defense is ranked as a middle of the pack defense right at 16th and does not look like a proper match up for Rodgers this week. There are plenty of other defense on the waiver-wire to play this week in the Vikings place like the Redskins against the 49ers.

Waiver-wire pickups

Jerick Mckinnon, why would you not pick him up. Only owned in 29% of leagues, Mckinnon put up 27 points last week against the Bears, showed fantasy owners he is a valued pick up, especially with Dalvin Cook out for the season. Mckinnon is now RB1 in Minnesota and has potential to continue to put up big numbers like Cook was before his injury.

Adrian Peterson is now a Cardinal. Only owned in 47.5% of leagues, the future hall of famer was traded earlier this week from New Orleans, Peterson will look to turn his season around in a offense that loves to feature runnings backs in all aspects of the attack. The lose of David Johnson for majority of the season will open up a great opportunity for Peterson to put up big points and get the opportunity to go back up in the running back rankings.

Cooper Kupp leads the Rams in targets with 29 on the season. Only owned in 39.6% of leagues, Kupp has emerged as a favorite target of Goffs. Averaging 10.4 points per game, the newly featured WR could see the numbers jump even more for himself especially if he starts to find the endzone some more.
