Finally, Robert Woods had his game, as the Rams beat the Seahawks, 27-17. Was it a sign of things to come? We shall see. The Rams’ stars all performed well in fantasy terms. Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson hurt a finger on his throwing hand and was replaced by Geno Smith. The star of the night was DK Metcalf with two touchdowns.
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:
• Trevor Lawrence
• Trey Lance
Lawrence is in a smash spot against Tennessee. Lance should have a solid day if Jimmy Garoppolo is out, especially with the added rushing yards he can bring.
• Chris Evans
• Khalil Herbert
Both rookies should get an increased role this week, especially in the passing game. Should you use them this week? I think they could be in play as flex options.
• Jamison Crowder
• Adam Humphries
• Olamide Zaccheaus
Jets-Falcons in London could be ugly, but the pass defenses are beatable. With Curtis Samuel and Logan Thomas out for Washington, Humphries should operate in the slot and see an uptick in targets.
• Robert Tonyan
• Dan Arnold
I was surprised and encouraged by how Arnold was used after being around for just two days. I think his role will grow. Tonyan is just plain ole due!
Sleeper defense: Chicago Bears
Need a kicker? Greg Joseph
