Now we start getting into the harder part of the season because bye weeks officially start this week. Less active players means less options for your lineup. A lot of the time you may be fishing in the free agency market to fill some of your needs. The good news is there are only two teams on the bye this week so not many players are lost. Here are the rankings this week plus some analysis on players I think are valuable on the waiver wire.
BYE WEEK: Green Bay, Philadelphia
|5||Odell Beckham Jr.||NYG||@MIN|
Jamison Crowder - I said I would give you some waiver wire advice and here he is, Jamison Crowder. I don't give advice I don't take, I picked up Crowder this week myself. I really like him as a compliment to Pierre Garcon, not to mention Jordan Reed gets a lot of attention. With those two getting a lot of attention, it allows Crowder to slip through the cracks. He has scored a touchdown the last two weeks and is elusive in the slot. Don't forget, he's against the Brown's defense, which is the second worst passing defense in the league. I wouldn't consider him a must-start, but he can be used as a viable flex option in a pinch.
Brandon Marshall - Marshall has really underperformed so far this season. In two of three games this season he hasn't eclipsed 35 yards, but he has had an 101-yard game in Week 2). Regardless he just has not looked the same. He looks like a WR3 in this offense and that is exactly where his fantasy numbers sit him at. But will he sit in this slip for long? No. We all know he has incredible chemistry with Fitzpatrick, I mean the man urged his QB to come back to the team this season. The talent is there, the chemistry is there. But the Seahawks are the opponent this weak, so I'm simmering my expectations.
Terrelle Pryor - I'm not treating him as a one week fluke or a spike in the charts. With the injury to Corey Coleman, it is up to Pryor to take over at WR. Not only that but the man showed he can run the ball and he still has that arm we've known from Ohio State. He even played safety for cryin' out loud. He's the best option the Browns have and the are NOT afraid to use him. Pryor becomes a legit contender in fantasy lineups, I mark him as a WR2.
