As the title says, this week is the time to add that RB depth for the rest of the season. There will be some more injuries, I just don’t have that clear of a crystal ball.
What I do know is you have a guy on your bench who you know isn’t any good, and you need to cut that dead weight. Better to take a chance with a last roster spot than a vet who hasn’t shown anything. You know the guys I’m speaking of. Cut them loose; you’ll feel better (or you won’t and you arch-enemy will add them and beat you with them in the playoffs…that’s already happened to me once in my life, and I don’t know if I can take it if it happens again).
This is Free Agent Auction Bidding, and we started the season with $100. If you have money left, I’d spend it and if you’ve been reading week to week (thanks!) you know that I have no money left. Most of it I spent weeks 1 and 2. But I didn’t get every guy I wanted, so at this point, I have a little cash left to spend. If you have more, add on a few dollars.
Latavius Murray ($9) Fantasy footballers are a fickle community, and I saw Latavius available in a few leagues. If he’s been dropped, add him up.
Rex Burkhead ($6) Too many guys in New England, though now he has a chance to shine; this add is recommended if you have the extra cash, not if you don’t.
Danny Woodhead ($5) Fantasy playoffs goodness: week 15 @Cleveland and 16 home versus Indy.
Elijah McGuire ($2) some more depth.
Corey Davis ($6) His ownership climbs every week, as do his targets. The last time to add him methinks before he blows up.
Jeremy Maclin ($6) I saw his ownership numbers down, so take a look and see if he’s out there in your league. He has a good week 11 matchup at Green Bay and week 12 home against Houston.
Dontrelle Inman ($3) Last week he was free, this week he costs, and I don’t see why he isn’t going to be the #1 guy in Chicago the rest of the way, for what that’s worth.
Kenny Golladay ($2) If you wanted him, he would’ve been on your team weeks ago, but maybe you forgot about him, and now here’s a reminder.
Blake Bortles ($4) Didn’t have great numbers in week 9 or 10, but 11 is a trip to Cleveland and then Arizona. Could do much worse.
Ryan Fitzpatrick ($2) Miami stinks, and he’s starting this week.
Teddy Bridgewater ($2) Once he’s ready he has the weapons and if Keenum can utilize them Teddy B can.
$2 Defenses Houston versus Cardinals, Bills at Chargers (if Rivers is out), Bengals at Broncos. (Note: If you don’t have much $$ left, I don’t advise spending the money here, but you know your league; I’m in one where every team has two D’s, not that you can start two, it’s just how the league goes; one of these D’s should be available after waivers). That’s it for me, good luck out there this week!
