Hello again! I took a post start-sit charts look at some of the top flight prospects that are available in a large percentage of fantasy leagues. They include one potential impact player from tonight's Houston at Kansas City matchup that could turn into one of the highest scoring games of the week.
Put a claim in for Darrel Williams. It’s no surprise that Mahomes, Watson, Hill, and Kelce all rate in the top three at their respective positions this week, but fantasy managers looking for a way to get in on tonight’s game should claim Darrel Williams on waivers or free agency. He’s rostered in only 18.9 percent of ESPN fantasy leagues and yet will likely serve as part of a platoon with Clyde Edwards-Helaire this evening in a Chiefs offense that may run the ball a lot more than is generally anticipated.
Put another claim in for Ryan Nall. David Montgomery may have a torn groin muscle and it is highly unlikely he will play this week. Tarik Cohen is primarily a pass catcher, so the Bears may have to lean on Nall in Montgomery’s absence. Nall is totally off of most fantasy managers radar screens, as he is rostered in only 0.1 percent of ESPN leagues.
Consider adding Boston Scott to the roster. Miles Sanders is dealing with a hamstring injury, so there is a good chance that Scott will get a solid amount of playing time over the next few weeks. Scott is rostered in only 39.6 percent of ESPN leagues.
Add James Robinson as well. The Jaguars backfield is in limbo with Leonard Fournette now in Tampa Bay. Robinson’s performance during training camp is part of why the Jaguars were willing to part with Fournette and that has led to Robinson being first on Jacksonville’s RB depth chart. He’s rostered in only 15.4 percent of ESPN leagues and could be a lead back or bell cow this week now that Devine Ozigbo was put on IR.
Blake Jarwin is a sleeper TE candidate this week. Jarwin looked great in training camp and is ready to take over the old Jason Witten role in this offense. Add that to what should be a high scoring game against the Rams and Jarwin rates as a low-tier TE1, yet he is rostered in only 20.5 percent of ESPN leagues.
Ian Thomas is a strong sleeper candidate for the rest of the season. Thomas has been batting a toe injury and may not get out of the gate quickly, but for those in deeper leagues he is a tremendous addition who is still rostered in only 2.6 percent of ESPN leagues.
Philadelphia is a top 10 fantasy D/ST this week yet is rostered in only 47.1 percent of leagues.
