Another entertaining Thursday night game! Running backs Joe Mixon and James Robinson scored touchdowns. We lost Jaguars wide receiver DJ Chark Jr. for maybe the season so that is a buzzkill.

There are already a slew of injury concerns and some bad matchups, so we may need a sleeper or two. Here are a few players (by position) I expect to have solid fantasy days who may be slightly off your radar:


• Taylor Heinicke
• Jimmy Garoppolo

Both have plus matchups this week and can be used in a pinch.

Running Back:

• Zack Moss
• Eli Mitchell

Moss has been getting into the end zone. Mitchell looks like he is back and should handle the majority of the backfield touches.

Wide Receiver:

• Michael Pittman Jr.
• Antonio Brown
• Robby Anderson

Pittman shouldn’t be here but he is not getting enough attention because of the lack of touchdowns. Brown, going back to New England, should be solid. Anderson is so due in a beatable matchup.

Tight End:

• Evan Engram
• Cole Kmet

All of the Giants’ wide receivers are hurt, so you assume the target share goes up for Engram. Kmet, call it a hunch.

Sleeper defense: Titans

Need a kicker? Justin Tucker … just checking if you are reading until the end … actually Zane Gonzalez.
