Nelson Agholor, WR, Philadelphia Eagles
Nelson Agholor has been a touchdown machine with four touchdowns this season. He has 20 receptions on 30 targets for 321 yards. Agholor has been the model of consistency with three 15-point plus fantasy performances, as well as three consecutive games of 55-plus yards. With Carson Wentz finding his groove over the past two weeks, Agholor is set to see his targets and production increase. Therefore, pick Agholor off waivers as a strong WR2 or FLEX option for the rest of the season.
Austin Seferian-Jenkins, TE, New York Jets
Other than the fumble controversy, Austin Seferian-Jenkins had another productive week. Seferian-Jenkins had the second-most targets of receivers with 11, which turned into eight catches for 46 yards. He also found the end zone once and almost a second barring a controversial call at the goal line. Therefore, trade for Seferian-Jenkins now before his price shoots up as he continues to shine in the Jets’ offense.
Alvin Kamara, RB, New Orleans Saints
Alvin Kamara produced another strong week in a Saints’ backfield that got less crowded this week after Adrian Peterson was traded to the Cardinals. Kamara tallied his third consecutive double-digit fantasy week with 12.7 points. He finished with 75 yards on 10 rushes and 12 yards on four receptions. The Saints’ offense has come alive these past few weeks, making Kamara a strong FLEX option and even an RB2 in deeper leagues.
T.Y. Hilton, WR, Indianapolis Colts
T.Y. Hilton has had a rollercoaster start to fantasy with a feast or famine type point production. He exploded for 24 points against the 49ers in Week 5. Hilton gained 177 yards on seven receptions in a 26-23 overtime victory. However, there have been three weeks in which he has failed to produce double-digit fantasy points. Therefore, sell Hilton high as a No. 1 and get some value for the long run.
Christian McCaffrey, RB, Carolina Panthers
The Carolina Panthers have been on a roll offensively ever since their 9-3 victory against the Bills, in which they held Buffalo to 255 total yards. Christian McCaffrey has been an integral part of this offensive surge, averaging 12 fantasy points a game. However, he has only surpassed 20 rushing yards once this year, averaging 2.74 yards per rush. Therefore, I’d sell McCaffrey high though he is playing well because receptions will dwindle as Devin Funchess and Kelvin Benjamin find their groove in.
Ben Roethlisberger, QB, Pittsburgh Steelers
Ben Roethlisberger has committed a turnover in every game but the Steelers Week 2 match-up against the Vikings. He has seen his yardage and touchdown to interception ratio take a nosedive since the beginning of the season. Roethlisberger hasn’t surpassed 300 yards passing but once, which has caused alarm for fantasy owners everywhere. Take advantage of the injured quarterbacks around the league and get some real value for Roethlisberger before his value plummets because of increased poor play.
