Except in any other case famous, solely gamers owned in fewer than 50 p.c of Yahoo leagues thought of.
Cam Newton, QB, Panthers. Newton accounted for 2 quick TDs in Week 10 and proudly introduced that he is “again.” That could be true for fantasy functions, too. We’re not going to disregard how ugly it was to observe Newton at occasions with the Patriots final 12 months, however he did rush for 592 yards and 12 TDs final 12 months in 15 begins. That a part of his recreation stays a relentless. With improved receivers round him, it is potential Newton returns to a high-floor, borderline-QB1 each week. He will take the vast majority of first-team reps in observe this week, indicating he’ll seemingly begin in Week 11 towards a Washington protection that permits probably the most fantasy poins per recreation to QBs. Newton a high-upside streamer with loads of potential future worth.
Wayne Gallman, RB, Falcons. Cordarrelle Patterson tweaked his ankle in Week 10, opening the door for Gallman to function in a committee with Mike Davis towards the Patriots on Thursday evening. Gallman had 15 carries for 55 yards and one catch for 21 yards towards the Cowboys in Week 10, although his workload might need been extra a mirrored image of Atlanta getting blown out. We would nonetheless count on Davis to be the “lead again” in Week 11, but when Patterson is out a number of weeks, Gallman may actually have worth in Week 12 towards Jacksonville.

Van Jefferson, WR, Rams. Jefferson was second on the Rams in targets (7) and receiving yards (54) on Monday evening. It wasn’t a banner recreation, however he dropped what ought to have been a simple landing that may have actually boosted his outlook within the post-Robert Woods (knee) period. Though we will count on Odell Beckham Jr. to obtain extra targets subsequent day out, Jefferson may simply nonetheless be the No. 2 extensive receiver. Though the Rams offense has sputtered recently, that position will yield a gradual quantity of fantasy factors after L.A.’s Week 11 bye.
Jeff Wilson Jr., RB, 49ers. JWJ was energetic in Week 10 however did not get a contact. In Week 11, he was clearly the No. 2 behind Elijah Mitchell, speeding 10 occasions. He gained simply 28 yards, however Wilson Jr. is a precedence handcuff for the stretch run. Not solely will he be extremely priceless if Mitchell had been to overlook time once more, however he additionally may have standalone flex worth in the precise matchups — like subsequent week towards Jacksonville or Week 13 towards Seattle.
Logan Thomas, TE, Washington. We thought Thomas (hamstring) was going to play final week, however he wasn’t able to get on the sphere. With Ricky Seals-Jones injuring his hip final week, it is potential Washington places an emphasis on getting Thomas again this week towards Carolina. Both means, Thomas may have worth when he does return, so if he is obtainable in your wire, scoop him up now. If for now different motive, you do not need him touchdown on future opponent.
