A lot of people have just been waiting for the Packers to feature Aaron Jones the way they did against the Dolphins on Sunday, and he turned his 15 carries into 145 yards (a college-like 9.7 yards per carry) and two touchdowns. There’s reason to be extremely optimistic about the explosive second-year back moving forward, but that also makes it the perfect time to deal him for a no-doubt top-ten stud if possible. The Dolphins are one of the worst run defenses in the NFL, so it’s a stretch to expect Jones to keep having monster performances like he just did. Acquiring someone like Joe Mixon or Stefon Diggs would probably pay off over the final seven weeks.
Verdict: Sell for an RB1/WR1
Rookie running back Phillip Lindsay has been great this season, and he’ll probably continue being the top Broncos running back to own for the rest of the year; but third-round rookie runner Royce Freeman should be healthy after the bye week and could make a solid impact down the stretch. Freeman might not turn out to be a top-25 option at running back from this point forward, but he’s worth a pickup if you have an open bench spot and he happens to be available. He’s worth trading for in deep leagues, too.
Verdict: Buy or pick up
Because he didn’t play in Week 9 because of a rib injury and he didn’t play in Week 10 because of Minnesota’s bye, it feels like Stefon Diggs hasn’t been on the field in forever. An owner that has Diggs on their roster might have an unconscious bias where they aren’t as hesitant to get rid of him after he wasn’t in their lineup for the last two weeks—and he had back-to-back three-point (standard scoring) showings in his previous two games before bouncing back with a 10/119/1 game against the Saints, so maybe they’ll feel he’s too inconsistent.
Verdict: Buy for another WR2
Corey Davis really has been inconsistent this season, as he’s shown big flashes of his potential with two games over 125 receiving yards, but he’s been held under 63 receiving yards in each of his other seven games this season. The upside is great, but you might be better off going for a more consistent option that you should be able to count on getting more than a handful of points each week.
Verdict: Sell for a more consistent FLEX
It was a surprise considering he had the bye week to get a grasp of the offense ahead of a big NFC East matchup with a Cowboys team he had one of the best games of his career against earlier this season, but Golden Tate played under two dozen snaps in his Eagles debut. That snap count is going to rise moving forward (potentially with a huge bump this week), but Tate owners might not want to wait around in case it takes longer than anticipated. Especially in PPR leagues, the receiver Philadelphia paid a third-round pick for is worth inquiring about.
Verdict: Buy in PPR leagues
