Well, I hope you followed my advice and started Dalvin Cook last night. Our rankings had him as RB5 this week … that apparently was too low. Overall, most players involved in the Minnesota-Pittsburgh game had solid fantasy nights.

Here are a few players by position I expect to have solid fantasy days who may be slightly off your radar:

Quarterback:

• Cam Newton
• Justin Fields

Because of the yards Newton and Fields can generate on the ground, they are always a threat for a top-12 QB fantasy performance.

Running Back:

• D’Onta Foreman
• David Johnson
• Ameer Abdullah

Seattle gives up a ton of yards on the ground and Foreman had 19 rushes last week. Abdullah could see six to eight targets for those in PPR leagues.

Wide Receiver:

• Jalen Guyton
• Jamison Crowder
• Marquez Valdes-Scantling
• Josh Reynolds

Crowder could see more action this week with Corey Davis and Elijah Moore nicked up. MVS is a solid play with Cobb out. Guyton is a plug-and-play if both Keenan Allen and Mike Williams miss this week’s game. We know Allen will for sure.

Tight End:

• Ricky Seals-Jones
• Austin Hooper

Cleveland loves to throw to tight ends, and Hooper is the last man standing in Cleveland. RSJ should be back for Washington, and with Logan Thomas back on injured reserve, he could see up to eight targets this week.

Sleeper defense: Tennessee Titans
