With Ajayi now injured, all eyes once again are on wheeling-and-dealing Howie Roseman. Could ex-Eagles LeSean McCoy or LeGarrette Blount land back in Philly? Would Roseman go for broke in club's title defense season and add a certain disgruntled dual threat in the same state? It’s worth noting the Eagles have among fantasy’s toughest remaining schedules for backs, but rather than waiting on Roseman to possibly make a move, make yours now for Corey Clement.
MATCHUPS TO EXPLOIT
Bucs at Falcons
Tampa returns from the bye to visit a Falcons defense that is just about out of warm bodies, if not gas. Jameis Winston, back in the QB1 fold, has a 12-2 TD-INT ratio in four meetings against Dan Quinn’s Falcons, who trail only the Bucs in scoring ‘D,’ having surrendered 43 and 37 points in back-to-back home defeats. Likely without O.J Howard (knee, check status), Tampa’s Cameron Brate can be comfortably welcomed back to the TE1 party this week. Frankly, this sets up as a pleasant welcome back for the entire Tampa offense, which was rudely sent into the open date by the Bears.
Don’t hesitate: QB Jameis Winston, WRs Mike Evans, DeSean Jackson, Chris Godwin
Think twice (but it’s alright): TE Cameron Brate
Colts at Jets
Fantasy football is fickle, and yesterday’s avoid can become today’s exploit at the drop of a hat. Or in Andrew Luck’s case, the dropping of a combined 829 passing yards and seven TDs over his past two games. Those numbers are even more impressive when considering T.Y. Hilton was on the field for one of the four halves, which is one more than Jack Doyle. Hilton could return as the Colts emerge from their “mini bye” following last Thursday's game, and irrespective of his status, Eric Ebron and Chester Rogers have each produced from the slot, where the Jets ‘D’ has ceded the most production.
Don’t hesitate: QB Andrew Luck, WR T.Y. Hilton*
Think twice (but it’s alright): RB Nyheim Hines, WR Chester Rogers, TE Eric Ebron,
