Fantasy football roster moves don't end Tuesday night when the waiver moves are processed. If this week has taught us anything, it's that moves can be done at the last minute. The Seattle Seahawks discovered that their three running backs would not be available and Deejay Dallas took the start. Dallas is still only owned in 11% of ESPN leagues. It shows that people still didn't have enough time to add the new running back. Even as of the publication of this article, there are still no definitive answers to many questions regarding some of the staff:
- When will Chris Carson be ready to start?
- When will Michael Thomas finally arrive on the pitch?
- Will the Baltimore Ravens change their approach to the racing game when Mark Ingram returns?
- Who will replace George Kittle?
Here are some recommendations to consider before submitting your waiver claims for the week.
Zach Moss - RB, Buffalo Bills (Available in 64% of leagues)
Like many teams on Sunday, the Bills and New England Patriots faced very difficult weather conditions. With bad weather comes an addiction to the racing game. Buffalo has struggled this season to establish its running game, but Moss helped a lot on Sunday. Moss and running back Devin Singletary both finished with 14 runs apiece. One thing that makes Moss desirable is its use in the red zone. Moss had two touchdowns that day while Singletary had one touchdown all year.
Moss has scored 20 points in standard which is pretty good for a return from the goal line who has to compete with Josh Allen for touchdowns in the run. It looks like Moss will have to rely on red zone touches, but the Buffalo coaching staff are looking to put that responsibility on him.
Damien Harris - RB, New England Patriots (70%)
Speaking of Buffalo and New England, another player in this game has caught the attention of fantasy owners. Harris had a great game with 102 rushing yards to go with a touchdown. The owners of Fantasy enjoyed a 16-point game that day.
Harris had been injured for the majority of the year, but has produced since returning. He has played two games over 100 yards averaging 5.7 yards per carry in the four games he has played this season. Look for Bill Belichick and company to further feed Harris the ball.
Mike Williams - WR, Los Angeles Chargers (57%)
Rookie quarterback Justin Herbert has been on fire this year and appears to be the frontrunner to win Rookie of the Year honors. One of his favorite targets is Mike Williams and last weekend showed it as the splits had 99 yards and one touchdown, resulting in 16 points in fantasy. Williams has had their ups and downs like any other player, but he's had 20 fantasy points in each of his last two games. If it's available, it should be a top priority, especially if you need a wide receiver.
Corey Davis - WR, Tennessee Titans (64%)
The former top-five pick in 2017 has finally had a breakout year. Davis has been frustrating owning in fantastic leagues since his rookie year. It seemed like he just could never date, and having second-year wide receiver AJ Brown ahead of him in the depths chart didn't help. In five games this season, he has averaged 10 fantasy points per game. Against the Cincinnati Bengals, Davis tallied for 128 yards and one touchdown, capturing 18 fantasy points in the process.
Dallas Goedert - TE, Philadelphia Eagles (60%)
With a win over Dallas on Sunday night that propelled the Eagles to first place in the dismal NFC East, it looks like everything is sunny in Philadelphia, right? This is not quite the case. Longtime starter Zach Ertz has been sent to the injury reserve list and won't return until much later this year. The next man is a very capable tight end to Goedert. This last game against the Cowboys was his first action since Week 3, but he only had one 15-yard catch.
Quarterback Carson Wentz played a role in the Eagles by selecting Goedert to the 2018 draft. That relationship will help Goedert get on track. Look for Goedert to have better games in the near future and a fantastic replacement for George Kittle.
