Below I have dug into some important data from the week to help you find some players who could help you in the coming weeks and potentially beyond. I have listed the players at each position in order of priority.
DeAndre Carter, Chargers
With both Mike Williams and Keenan Allen out for who knows how long, Carter is a name to consider adding to your team if thin at WR. He is the next man up to start alongside Joshua Palmer. On Sunday he played on 83% of snaps and got 6 targets, catching 5 for 53 yards. He is not a super talented player, but is getting targets in a good offense, which makes him worth rostering.
Kendrick Bourne & Tyquan Thornton, Patriots
It looks like the Patriots have decided to make some changes at the WR position. Nelson Agholor played on only 33% of snaps on Sunday, while Kendrick Bourne played on 76% and Tyquan Thornton played on 67%. Both got 4 targets, while Agholor did not get a target. This is a very low-volume passing offense, but both Bourne and Thornton could be worth adding in deep leagues.
Chris Moore, Texans
With both Nico Collins and Brandin Cooks out for the Eagles game, Moore shined for the Texans, playing on 73% of snaps and tying for the team-lead with 5 targets. He finished 4-43-1. On a terrible offense, Moore’s upside is very limited, especially since those other players will likely return soon. But in deep leagues, Moore is a name to monitor to see how things play out.
