There were some unheralded heroes this week. There always are. Let’s take a look at them and see if they are worthy of your fantasy rosters.
Brian Hoyer, QB, Chicago Bears – 302 yards, 2 TDs. Decent QB2 or plug-in play during bye weeks.
Eddie Royal, WR, Chicago Bears – Seven catches for 111 yards, TD. 18 receptions in four games.
Steve Smith, Sr., WR, Baltimore Ravens – Eight catches for 111 yards and a TD. He had eight catches for 87 yards the week prior. Already owned in larger leagues, he’s worth considering in smaller ones too.
Terrance Williams, WR, Dallas Cowboys – Four catches for 44 yards TD a week after catching four for 88.
Robert Woods, WR, Buffalo Bills – Seven catches for 89 yards giving him 13 receptions in the past two games. Should continue to be peppered with targets with Watkins hurt.
Don’t Sweat ‘em
Corey Brown, WR, Carolina Panthers – Five catches for 48 yards, TD.
Brice Butler, WR, Dallas Cowboys – Five catches for 41 yards, TD.
C.J. Fiedorowicz, TE, Houston Texans – Four catches for 48 yards, TD.
Darrius Heyward-Bey, WR, Pittsburgh Steelers – 31-yard TD catch.
Tyreek Hill, WR, Kansas City Chiefs – Five catches for 24 yards, TD.
Austin Hooper, TE, Atlanta Falcons – 42-yard TD catch.
Jesse James, TE, Pittsburgh Steelers – Two catches for 15 yards, TD. Only a desperation play.
Case Keenum, QB, Los Angeles Rams – 266 yards, 2 TDs, 14 rushing yards.
Jeremy Kerley, WR, San Francisco 49ers – Six catches for 88 yards, TD.
John Kuhn, RB, New Orleans Saints – 12 total yards, 3 TDs.
Tanner McEvoy, WR, Seattle Seahawks - 42-yard TD catch.
Brian Quick, WR, Los Angeles Rams – Two catches for 69 yards, 2 TDs giving him three scores in the past two games.
Seth Roberts, WR, Oakland Raiders – Three catches for 12 yards, TD. Has scored in three of four games, but only has 83 yards.
Aldrick Robinson, WR, Atlanta Falcons – Two catches for 48 yards, TD.
C.J. Spiller, RB, Seattle Seahawks – 17 total yards, TD.
Kenny Stills, WR, Miami Dolphins – He’s been solid in each of the past three games (39 yards, TD; 76 yards; 74 yards, TD), but only has nine catches in four games. Pretty risky option.
