Happy Thanksgiving! Here are five players I expect to have solid fantasy days who may be slightly off your radar:
1. Dallas Goedert, TE, Philadelphia Eagles
With the entire wide receivers corps basically hurt, the Eagles will have to go with a bunch of two-tight-end sets. Goedert has top-10 tight end potential at Miami Dec. 1.
2. Jakobi Meyers, WR, New England Patriots
N’Keal Harry caught a touchdown against Dallas Nov. 24 but also dropped a couple of passes. Meyers got the targets and seems like the more reliable receiver of the two. They have to throw to more than just Julian Edelman!
3. Jack Doyle, TE, Indianapolis Colts
With tight end Eric Ebron going to injured reserve, Doyle should see more targets, and with receiver T.Y. Hilton out against Tennessee Dec. 1 as well, Doyle could be in for a massive target load.
4. Ronald Jones, RB, Tampa Bay Buccaneers
Running back is a minefield this week. Many of the top guys have been disappointing (Saquon Barkley and Le’Veon Bell to name a couple), so injuries to guys like James Conner and Damien Williams makes the pool even shallower. Jones gets a solid matchup against a Jacksonville team that has been gashed the past three weeks on the ground.
5. Nick Foles, QB, Jacksonville Jaguars
Tampa Bay gives up a ton of yards through the air. We all know this by now. So Mr. Foles … you are up, sir!
Sleeper defense: Philadelphia Eagles
