There was no Thursday game this week, so here are three players at each position I think you could use in a pinch this weekend who may be slightly off your radar:


Drew Lock (Denver Broncos): I like him too much this week, I already know it.
Gardner Minshew (Jacksonville Jaguars): He was solid last week, and I expect more of the same.
Ryan Fitzpatrick (Miami Dolphins): Can the magic last one more week?

Running Back

Brian Hill (Atlanta Falcons): Atlanta will run all over the Jags — could be a cheap touchdown coming this week for Hill.
DeAndre Washington (Oakland Raiders): Josh Jacobs is out.
Ameer Abdullah (Minnesota Vikings): If Dalvin Cook and Alexander Mattison are both out, Mike Boone will start but Abdullah will get some touches.

Wide Receiver

Justin Watson (Tampa Bay Buccaneers): Mike Evans, Chris Godwin and Scotty Miller are all out.
Dede Westbrook (Jacksonville Jaguars): Last week, I gave you Chris Conley. This week, it’s Westbrook’s turn.
Greg Ward (Philadelphia Eagles): Like last week, he is the only game in town for the Eagles at wide receiver.

Tight End

Outside of Travis Kelce, Zach Ertz, George Kittle, Darren Waller, Mark Andrews, Austin Hooper and Hunter Henry, they are all sleepers! O.J. Howard should be heavily involved for Tampa Bay, but Jacob Hollister faces the Arizona Cardinals, so he is the tight end sleeper of the week.

Sleeper defenses: Denver Broncos and Indianapolis Colts

Need a kicker? Younghoe Koo, Atlanta Falcons
