With Mahomes expected back, look for fireworks and Tannehill should see plenty of volume in this contest.
Darnold and the Jets are a mess and even with one of the best upcoming fantasy football schedules ever seen, it’s still hard to trust him. In a dream matchup vs. Miami in Week 9, Darnold only yielded 260 Yards, 1 TD and 1 INT. The Jets will see NYG, WAS, OAK, CIN & MIA in the coming weeks and we still can’t get behind him.
Top Priority Add – It’s possible that this timeshare is working itself out and with Jones receiving the start, obtaining adequate volume and producing, Ronald Jones should be locked in for Tampa going forward. Look for him to build in Week 10 against a light Arizona Defense.
Guice has been riddled with injuries since entering the league, but has been designated to return from IR in Week 11. He’s a nice stash, but it’s a likely continued split in Washington given his checkered past.
Ballage will serve as the workhorse back in Miami after RB Mark Walton was popped with a 4-Game Suspension. Ballage is a desperation add with little to no upside. Plenty of bye weeks are coming up in Week 10 and 11 for fantasy owners, so take it for what it’s worth on this one.
Tra Carson was sent to IR, leaving Ty Johnson and JD McKissic in the drivers seat. In a favorable matchup against Oakland on Sunday, McKissic totaled 7 Touches for 72 yards and 1 TD. Detroit will see a stout opponent in Chicago during Week 10, but opportunity exists if you are looking for a bye week body to flex into your lineup.
If James Connor can’t go in Week 10 vs. LAR, Edmunds is recommended as he saw plenty of opportunity in Week 9. Edmunds saw 12 Rushing Attempts for 73 Yards, whereas Jaylen Samuels did next to nothing on the ground but totaled a molly-whopping 13 Receptions on 13 Targets for 73 Yards. This addition begins and ends with James Conner.
Rookie WR Preston Williams will miss the remainder of the season with a knee injury, leaving even more volume to funnel toward Devante Parker in Miami. Through the first 8 Games, Parker has averaged 6.5 Targets Per Game and has a TD in 4 of his last 5 Games. Losing Williams and Walton in the same week is a huge loss for an already miserable team, but this should make things even worse. Williams was averaging 7.5 Targets & 53 Yards Per Game.
Brandin Cooks has a pretty sketchy history with concussions and currently has a grey outlook regarding a timetable to return to action. In Cooks absence, Reynolds saw heavy volume vs. Cincinnati and the timing of the bye week should help the late season transition into the offense. Similar to the situation last season with Kupp, Reynolds performed admirably and grabbing a piece of this offense is never a bad idea.
TY Hilton is expected to miss 3-4 Weeks with a calf injury and Pascal made the most of that opportunity, snatching 5 Receptions for 76 Yards and 1 TD. Expect that volume to only increase with a dream matchup vs. Miami in Week 10. Feel free to fire up Pascal as a WR3 in Week 10!
