RB:

Brad Penner-USA TODAY Sports

Andre Brown OAK (37%): Remember this guy? Brown should be back this week and is a good fantasy play against an Oakland defense who has struggled the last two weeks. David Wilson is still a week or two away from having his neck re-evaluated and at least a month away from playing again.

Max FAAB: $30

Ben Tate @AZ (52%): Tate has looked good anytime he’s given a chance and he’s got one this week with Foster out.

Max FAAB: $22

Shane Vereen BYE (46%): The Pats have a bye and Vereen is technically on the PUP list, but he’s eligible to come off it next week and should take most of Bolden &  Blount’s carries. Vereen looked great in the one game he played this year (19 points) and will have value as soon as he is activated.

Max FAAB: $15

Mike James MIA (50%): It’s possible Doug Martin comes back in the next week or so, but until he does James will have enough value to start for most fantasy squads. He put up 22 fantasy points last week.

Max FAAB: $12

NO – James Starks (22%); Starks has scored a TD in each of his last two games. He is also averaging only 6.5 carries in those games. That isn’t close to enough action for me to recommend a waiver add. If you think Starks will continue to score every 6th time he touches the ball then by all means add him.

WR:

Aaron Dobson BYE (37%): Dobson has averaged just under 8 targets a game the last four weeks and had 130 yards / 2 TDs last week. He passed the eye test as well, showing surprising acceleration after the catch on one of his TDs. Go get him.

Max FAAB: $17

Riley Cooper @GB (14%): No one likes this guy, but Cooper has been very productive when Nick Foles starts. In the last three games with Foles under center, Cooper has 15 catches, 348 yards, and 4 TDs. Look at those numbers again, they are pretty awesome.

Max FAAB: $15

Kenny Stills DAL (48%): Marcus Colston looks like he’s playing with a weight vest on and besides Jimmy Graham, they don’t have much talent at WR besides Stills. He’s Brees’ primary deep threat so he doesn’t get a ton of targets, but I he will get some of those balls that used to go to Colston.

Max FAAB: $7

Darius Heyward-Bey STL (49%): I know he can’t catch and he failed last week (1 catch, 6 targets), but he has a great opportunity the rest of the way with Wayne out. I’m giving him one more chance.

Max FAAB: $5

NO - Marlon Brown (10%): Going from undrafted free agent to starting WR on the defending champs is a great story and I have nothing against Brown, but I like consistency out of my fantasy WRs. Brown had 2 TDs last week, but he only cracked 50 yards 3 times all year and against the Bengals stingy D (5th in yards allowed) I don’t expect much.

TE:

Coby Fleener STL (50%): Fleener’s production has increased since Wayne went out and should continue to do so the rest of the year. Get Fleener now before his breakout game.

Max FAAB: $12

Tyler Efiert @BAL (19%): Talent wise, Eifert is the second best receiver the Bengals have. Unfortunately he splits snaps with Gresham, but I have a hunch the rookies’ targets will increase as the second half of the season.

Max FAAB: $5

Zach Ertz @GB (2%):  Another beneficiary of the Eagles QB switch, Ertz has 17 targets in the last three games Foles started and had his first career TD last week. Could be a solid TE if you need a bye week replacement.

Max FAAB: $5

Tim Wright MIA (14%): Averaging 6 targets and a TD over the last two games. You are probably doing worse than that at TE right now unless you have Graham.

Max FAAB: $5

NO: Joseph Fauria @CHI (10%): I’m not sure if anyone is still recommending Fauria, but I just wanted to remind you how silly it is to chase touchdowns.
