Veteran running backs and young receivers among the key additions

Veteran running backs and young receivers among the key additions

We get a break during the week of Thanksgiving, so maybe your fantasy roster problems won’t be too serious. But some of us are getting ready to break the bank for Latavius ​​Murray, who almost feels like the last gasp of a wiped list. If your training needs a boost, read on. All potential pickups mentioned here are unattached in most Yahoo leagues.

Run back on it

before well Joe Mixon was was ruled out on Sunday with the concussion, Perine was cooking for the Bengalis. He hauled in a couple of early touchdown catches, absolutely wrecking another human on his second score:

Perine added a crucial fourth-quarter TD reception, finishing with 82 yards on 15 carries against the Steelers. If Mixon can’t clear the concussion protocol in time for this week’s game at Tennessee, Perine will qualify as a playable RB2. The Titans D is one of the best in the league against the run, but that team has also allowed opponents 69 catches and 400 yards receiving. Perine is clearly an option to receive circle confidence Joe Burrowso he will be able to help even if there is no party on the floor.

Recommended discount offer, based on a $100 budget: $15

Look, nobody should be going out of their way to get shares of Denver’s offense these days, but it seems to stand out. Melvin Gordon III released by the team on Monday after another bang. Murray was also outscored, 21 to 13, in the loss to the Raiders. And Chase Edmonds he has a high ankle sprain, so he won’t be ready to help this situation anytime soon. Murray hasn’t been the Broncos’ most efficient rusher (3.3 YPC), but he has three home runs in five games and played 50 percent of the snaps for the first time this season. If you have backroom needs, Murray can help. There will be no shortage of opportunities to advance. Marlon Mack presumably it will have a rotational role Mike Boone He could be close to returning from IR as well.

Another RB adds: Jerick McKinnon (Chiefs remain a confident option at the back), Cam Akers and Kyren Williams (Akers led this backfield in yards, Williams in snaps; both could be draft picks against the Chiefs in Week 12), James Cook (The rookie only played 16 snaps against the Browns, but he made the most of them, carrying 11 times for 86 yards; the Lions are next, so it might not take many touches to make a fantasy splash.) Justice Hill (He carried 30 yards seven times against the Panthers and will clearly serve as a big piece in Baltimore’s backfield if Gus Edwards remains excluded), Alexander Mattison (As we’ve discussed before, Mattison is a top contributor RB who should be kept almost everywhere).

Target wide receivers and tight ends

Burks had a signature game Thursday night at Lambeau, catching seven of eight targets for 111 yards, capping the game-winning 51-yarder:

playing Jaire Alexander It was a bold move with too little gesture, but the rookie earned the right to celebrate. Not only did Burks prove he’s fully healthy after a four-game layoff (toe on ground), but he actually looked like a first-round pick. We probably shouldn’t expect more 300m games Ryan Tannehill, but at least today we know he has a big-play receiver at his disposal. Burks has seen 14 targets in two games since returning from injury, usage that should keep him in the WR3 conversation.

If you enjoy a good contested catch, check out this Peoples-Jones touchdown catch against the Bills:

And that wasn’t even close to DPJ’s best catch on Sunday. He’s been quiet great this season and has been uncharacteristically consistent, stringing together seven straight weeks of at least 50 yards receiving. Peoples-Jones finished with five catches for 61 yards on six targets against Buffalo, the third straight game in which he has scored double-digit fantasy points. His catch rate over the last five weeks is 80 percent, which is much higher than you would expect from a big game receiver. Consider a solid early DPJ option in the range; will have Deshaun Watson starting in his 13th week as quarterback.

Another week, another point for Johnson. He has found the end zone five times in the last five games, emerging as the Saints’ first red zone option.

Johnson finished with three catches for 47 yards on four targets against the Rams on Sunday, the other top 8 giving another position. Most of us are surprised by this roster spot in 2022, so we have to play when we see production at Johnson’s level.

Offer: $8

Additional receivers to hide: Demarcus Robinson (The vet had his best game of the season when the Ravens desperately needed him, catching all nine of his targets against Carolina and finishing with 128 yards). Parris Campbell (He’s drawn 15 targets behind center Matt Ryan over the last two weeks, going 12 for 143 yards and a score). Zay Jones (He saw 10 targets against the Chiefs before his team’s Week 11 bye and is about to face some vulnerable pass defenses: Bal, Det, Ten), Greg Dortch (it would clearly be beneficial in terms of usage Rondale Mooregroin injury sidelines him next week), Odell Beckham Jr. (He feels the entire league is flirting with OBJ on Twitter while we wait for a team to be selected) Skye Moore (KC is running out of healthy receivers, which led to a season-high six targets for Moore on Sunday night).

Various tight ends available: Taysom hill (He’s played at least 40 percent of the snaps in the Saints’ last two games, leading to another breakout in recent weeks.) Trey McBride (The rookie caught all four of his targets Monday night and has a significant opportunity ahead of him Zach Ertz excluding injuries), Austin Hooper (He won’t have a better game this season than Thursday’s two TD efforts, but hey, he’s a thin position and his targets are on the rise), Logan Thomas (It’s been a quiet season for Thomas since his injury, but he was targeted six times in Sunday’s win, catching five for 65 yards.)

To play quarterbacks

Heinicke hasn’t thrown a touchdown pass since Week 9, but he’s been in control of Washington’s offense during the team’s most successful stretch of the season, with four wins in five games. the commanders they are not going to return the keys to Carson Wentz soon – not while things are going so unexpectedly – which means Heinicke will face Atlanta in Week 12. The Falcons defense has been at or near the bottom of the league against the pass all year and they have allowed one monster game. Justin Fields So be encouraged on Sunday The best of Old Dominion If you need him at QB.

Offer: $3

Other accepted QB: Deshaun Watson (We’re only a week away from his return against Houston and he’s still very much available), Ryan Tannehill (Had multiple touchdown games and rookie wideouts Treylon Burks looks like a potential star).

For your defense needs

Miami returns from the bye to host Houston, the NFL’s least offensive offense. The Texans currently rank last in total yards (285.9 YPG) and 30th in scoring (15.9). Davis Mills He has thrown a league-high 11 interceptions, including five in the last three games. Expect Bradley Chubb & Co. for a productive Sunday evening.
