RB Derrius Guice, Washington Redskins: Washington rediscovered its ground game with Guice and Adrian Peterson sharing the workload. Guice turned 10 carries into 129 yards and a pair of touchdowns against a decent Carolina Panthers run defense.
RB James White, New England Patriots: With New England spending the entire game playing catch-up in Houston, White rushed for 79 yards and caught eight passes for another 98 yards and a touchdown. With the Kansas City Chiefs up next, White should continue to receive a healthy dose of action.
WR DeVante Parker, Miami Dolphins: Parker should no longer be an afterthought with his recent string of top-shelf outings. Catching 7-of-10 targets for 159 yards and a pair of touchdowns, he now has 10-plus targets in four consecutive games. With the New York Jets up next, there is no reason to expect his volume will decline.
WR Alshon Jeffery, Philadelphia Eagles: Coming off an ankle injury, Jeffery hauled in nine receptions for 137 yards and a touchdown as Carson Wentz targeted him times. With the fantasy playoffs on the horizon, Jeffery couldn’t be coming back to fantasy relevance at a more opportune time.
WR Robert Woods, Los Angeles Rams: The Arizona Cardinals secondary is one of the easiest units to exploit, which the Rams’ receivers did. Woods was largely ignored earlier this season but has led the group in catches each of the past three games.
RB Ronald Jones, Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Just as fantasy owners were warming up to having Jones in their lineups, the Bucs decided to run their “hot-hand” offense, Unfortunately, Peyton Barber was the one, scoring a pair of touchdowns while Jones rushed for 8 yards on six carries.
RB Tevin Coleman, San Francisco 49ers: Coleman rushed just five times for six yards as Raheem Mostert (146 yards, TD) took over the bulk of the workload. With Matt Breida expected back next week, the fantasy outlook for Niners running backs just gets muddier.
QB Nick Foles, Jacksonville Jaguars: Foles got the halftime hook after throwing an interception and fumbling twice. Gardner Minshew took over and has already been named the starter for this week, possibly longer.
WR Jamison Crowder, New York Jets: Though quarterback Sam Darnold did try to feed Crowder with nine targets, he caught just two for a total of 8 yards. The Jets offense is an unqualified mess.
TE Hunter Henry, Los Angeles Chargers: Henry had two receptions for 10 yards as the Chargers attempted to spread the ball around. It’s possible Tyrod Taylor might get a look at quarterback, adding yet another element of risk to Henry’s fantasy value.
