New, comments

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

NFL: Dallas Cowboys at San Francisco 49ers Sergio Estrada-USA TODAY Sports

Quarterback

Josh McCown, owned in 31% of Yahoo leagues

McCown has kind of been on an upswing, this week he gets the Chiefs, who give up the ninth-most points to quarterbacks

Blake Bortles, owned in 35% of Yahoo leagues

He’s up against a defense that is horrid, the Colts have given up the seventh-most points to quarterbacks.

Running Back

Rod Smith, owned in 14% of Yahoo leagues

The fact that Darren McFadden is gone and Alfred Morris has been so-so, Smith will get more opportunities until Ezekiel Elliott returns.

Corey Clement, owned in 17% of Yahoo leagues

The Seahawks aren’t so great without some run-stoppers in the secondary. Clement is mainly a target in the passing game but he’s worth a shot.

Wide Receiver

Josh Doctson, owned in 43% of Yahoo leagues

His chances are pretty good this week against a weak Dallas secondary, giving up the ninth-most points to receivers.

Allen Hurns, owned in 26% of Yahoo leagues

He’s been hit or miss this season but against a terrible secondary like Indy’s, expect him to have a shot.

Tight End

Julius Thomas, owned in 27% of Yahoo leagues

Every tight end that faces the Broncos should start. Denver is allowing the second-most points to the position.

Eric Ebron, owned in 31% of Yahoo leagues

The Ravens haven’t been very good at covering tight ends, giving up the ninth-most points, that’s a good enough reason to roll with Ebron.

Defense

Chicago Bears, owned in 18% of Yahoo leagues

The 49ers are giving up the ninth-most points to defenses this season, the Bears gave been pretty good at playing defense at home.

Miami Dolphins, owned in 6% of Yahoo leagues

Up against the Broncos, you should proudly start the opposing defense. They are allowing the third-most points to defense this season.

Kicker

Josh Lambo, owned in 24% of Yahoo leagues

Surprise, surprise. The Colts are also bad at stopping kickers, allowing the third-most points to the position.

Dan Bailey, owned in 23% of Yahoo leagues

Against the Redskins, the Cowboys will be able to put up threes all day as Washington allows the fourth-most points to kickers.
