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

NFL: Los Angeles Rams at New York Giants Danny Wild-USA TODAY Sports

Quarterback

Case Keenum, owned in 9% of Yahoo leagues

The Vikings are rolling right now and somehow Case Keenum put up 18 points in his last outing. The Redskins are just outside the Top-10 in points allowed to quarterbacks and the Vikings will take advantage of the battered Washington team.

C.J. Beathard, owned in 3% of Yahoo leagues

Though San Fran traded for Jimmy Garoppolo, they’re in no hurry to get him on the field. Beathard has been outperforming low expectations and the Giants give up the seventh-most points to quarterbacks.

Running Back

Matt Forte, owned in 42% of Yahoo leagues

He really had a solid game for the Jets and actually looks healthy for once. Forte had 14 rushes, two rushing touchdowns, and caught four passes. The Buccaneers are struggling to consistently stop running backs.

Jamal Charles, owned in 20% of Yahoo leagues

If there were ever a time for Charles to get on track with the struggling Broncos, it’s against the Patriots, who are giving up the most points to running backs this season.

Wide Receiver

Robert Woods, owned in 33% of Yahoo leagues

He converted a huge third and 33 against the Giants, who are absolutely competing for the first overall pick. The Rams offense has been outstanding this season and Woods could only add to that. He’ll be up against the Texans, who give up the sixth-most points to receivers.

Zay Jones, owned in 9% of Yahoo leagues

The rookie is worth a shot after his performance this past week against the Jets. He caught six of seven targets and scored a touchdown. The Saints are hot right now but they’re still middle of the pack in the secondary.

Tight End

A.J. Derby, owned in 7% of Yahoo leagues

The Broncos are trying to get something going on offense and this week, they’ll have a favorable matchup at tight end. New England gives up the ninth-most points to the position.

George Kittle, owned in 13% of Yahoo leagues

He’s got a real chance to break out in this upcoming game against the New York Giants, who give up the most points to tight ends.

Defense

Tennessee Titans, owned in 21% of Yahoo leagues

The Titans have seeing the benefits of their defense finding a groove. Tennessee had two sacks and two interceptions. Their young safety Kevin Byard has four interceptions on the season, that ranks second in the NFL. The Titans get a favorable matchup with the Bengals giving up the eighth-most points to defenses.

Chicago Bears, owned in 6% of Yahoo leagues

The Bears defense has been a lot better in some areas than expected. They have a match with the Packers, at home this week. They’re not afraid of a Packers’ team led by Brett Hundley.

Kicker

Chris Boswell, owned in 23% of Yahoo leagues

The Colts are giving up everything to everyone, ranking worst in most categories. When it comes to kickers, nobody is allowing more points than Indianapolis.

Mike Nugent, owned in 13% of Yahoo leagues

The Cowboys’ rental didn’t light up the Chiefs but he earned 16 points a week prior to the Redskins. Washington was giving up the third-most points but this week’s tilt with the Falcons is even better. Atlanta is giving up the second-most points to kickers.
