Looking for the next big move in your fantasy league? We’ve got some advice

NFL: Minnesota Vikings at Washington Redskins Geoff Burke-USA TODAY Sports

Quarterback

Case Keenum, owned in 17% of Yahoo leagues

The Vikings are rolling and Keenum just put a clinic on against the Washington Redskins. The Rams are tougher competition but Keenum continues to be a hot hand.

Jay Cutler, owned in 18% of Yahoo leagues

Cutler can be a little hit or miss but the Buccaneers are giving up the seventh-most points to quarterbacks.

Running Back

Jamaal Williams, owned in 6% of Yahoo leagues

Williams came in for the injured Aaron Jones and had a relatively good outing. The Ravens are giving up the ninth-most points to the position.

Damien Williams, owned in 34% of Yahoo leagues

He splits carries with Kenyan Drake but had a 12-point performance a few weeks ago against Oakland. The Buccaneers are giving up the sixth-most points to running backs and Williams is the most likely to put one in the end zone.

Wide Receiver

Mike Wallace, owned in 24% of Yahoo leagues

Wallace will be up against a Green Bay secondary that gives up the sixth-most points to the position and he’s coming off a bye week.

J.J. Nelson, owned in 14% of Yahoo leagues

The Texans are giving up the fifth-most points to receivers and the Cardinals could have success through the air. Nelson is perhaps the best target for Drew Stanton and he needs to realize that.

Tight End

Julius Thomas, owned in 28% of Yahoo leagues

He is becoming a much bigger part of the Dolphins offense and had a breakout performance against the Raiders. You could do much worse at the position.

Jermaine Gresham, owned in 1% of Yahoo leagues

He caught five of seven targets and a touchdown against the Seahawks. In the past two weeks, he’s been exceeding his projections.

Defense

Cincinnati Bengals, owned in 25% of Yahoo leagues

The Broncos are giving up the second-most points to defenses this season and the Bengals should be able to take advantage of them.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers, owned in 10% of Yahoo leagues

The Dolphins are giving up the fifth-most points to defenses this season so the Bucs are a good one-week streamer.

Kicker

Harrison Butker, owned in 39% of Yahoo leagues

He’s been a pretty solid option all season long and he gets the Giants this week, who give up the eighth-most points to kickers.

Blair Walsh, owned in 26% of Yahoo leagues

The Falcons are giving up the second-most points to kickers this season and Walsh is going to get his opportunities.
