New, comments

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

NFL: San Francisco 49ers at Washington Redskins Brad Mills-USA TODAY Sports

Quarterback

Joe Flacco, owned in 14% of Yahoo leagues

For this week, Flacco is a good streamer against the Texans, who give up the third-most points to quarterbacks this season.

Case Keenum, owned in 40% of Yahoo leagues

Continue to ride the hot hand, he still has quite the availability and will have a matchup against an inconsistent Lions’ squad.

Running Back

Samaje Perine, owned in 37% of Yahoo leagues

Without Chris Thompson, expect Perine to be the running game for the Redskins. Besides, against the Giants, start everyone you can.

Damien Williams, owned in 35% of Yahoo leagues

This week against the Patriots, who give up the sixth-most points to running backs, I would expect Williams to get into the end zone at least once.

Wide Receiver

Josh Doctson, owned in 28% of Yahoo leagues

The Giants are giving up the tenth-most points to receivers and Doctson could have a big day as they haven’t been able to hold folks in check.

Mike Wallace, owned in 26% of Yahoo leagues

He lived up to the expectations last week against the Packers and you should expect the same against the Texans. Houston is giving up the second-most points to receivers.

Tight End

C.J. Fiedorowicz, owned in 25% of Yahoo leagues

Against a Ravens team that is giving up the seventh-most points to tight ends, you can do a lot worse this week.

Eric Dickson, owned in 21% of Yahoo leagues

He’s become a bigger part of the Panthers’ receiving game and this week he gets a Jets team that is giving up the eighth-most points to tight ends.

Defense

Cincinnati Bengals, owned in 43% of Yahoo leagues

They are playing the Browns, who give up the second-most points to defenses, enough said, start the Bengals.

Oakland Raiders, owned in 15% of Yahoo leagues

The Raiders are getting the Broncos this week at home, not only are they giving up the most points to defenses but they are absolutely terrible on offense.

Kicker

Blair Walsh, owned in 33% of Yahoo leagues

He missed a tough one on Monday Night Football but with all the kicker injuries, he’s among the better options. Plus, the 49ers are giving up the fifth-most points to kickers this season.

Giorgio Tavecchio, owned in 8% of Yahoo leagues

The Broncos are giving up the second-most points to kickers this season, so we’re saying there’s a chance.
