5. Austin Davis, QB, Rams
If you have QB injury issues, Austin Davis may be a streaming option for the next few weeks off the waiver wire. It seems as though the Rams defense isn’t as good as we all thought and Davis has led comebacks the past few gamesthat have resulted in fantasy bonanzas. He’s thrown for over 700 yards in his last two, six TD and could be involved in another high scoring game Monday night against the 49ers at home.READ MORE: Norcross Inn Homicide Suspect Arrested
4. Andre Williams, RB, Giants
With Rashard Jennings out a few weeks with a MCL sprain, Andre Williams takes the lead role in the suddenly viable Giants running game. Last week against the Falcons, he shredded the Atlanta defense and scored his first NFL TD in the process. This week he’ll get north of 20 carries as the Giants look to keep the chains moving and keep the Eagles offense off the field. Next week, the same gameplan will be in place against the high powered Cowboys. Williams is a must own for the next month and maybe beyond.
3. Justin Hunter, WR, TitansREAD MORE: Gov. Kemp Announces Amazon Fulfillment Center in Savannah
Hunter, seemingly overlooked for the first month of the season in the Titans passing game, finally got going last week with three catches for 99 yards and a TD. Nate Washington isn’t getting any younger and Kendall Wright excels more in the slot than on the outside. Hunter is a big play waiting to happen and with the Jaguars and Redskins next on the docket, look for Hunter to arrive on the fantasy scene in style.
2. Rueben Randle, WR, Giants
As much as I talked about the running game clicking with Andre Williams, the passing game features a red hot Eli Manning and his targets are reaping the benefits. Randle had a team high 10 targets last week against the Falcons and did catch a TD on three grabs. He’s been targeted 10 times in three straight weeks, so he needs to be owned and started on a weekly basis as a WR3 or flex option.
1. Branden Oliver, RB, ChargersMORE NEWS: Bird Striking Windshield Forces Atlanta Delta Air Lines Flight To Turn Around
When Donald Brown was forced out with a concussion against the Jets, Branden Oliver, an undrafted rookie free agent from University Of Buffalo, took the ball and figuratively and literally ran with it. He’s a natural pass catcher out of the backfield and burst on the scene in preseason, but still sat behind Ryan Mathews and Donald Brown on the depth chart to begin the season. Entering Sunday’s game, the Chargers opponent in the Jets were allowing under three yards per carry to RBs. Oakland’s run defense is up next, and they’re giving up more than four and a half yards per carry. Pick up and start.
