Wayne Gallman, RB, New York Giants
Gallman should be fairly high-owned this week with him having an unknown floor and upside. He currently has little competition projecting him to have a high snap percentage and high percentage of the teams running back touches making him an intriguing play for many.
The Seahawks and Wilson make for a trendy stack this week in a great game environment against the Cardinals. The Cardinals play at the fastest pace in football and Seahawks are 12th themselves. Helping Wilson has been the run game not being the same beast as last year, with Chris Carson averaging just 3.5 yards per carry and already fumbling three times. Also, Rashaad Penny should be questionable for this week after missing last week’s game. Lamar Jackson was able to gash this defense for 120 yards on the ground, which could add to Wilson’s potential upside.
Tyler Lockett, WR, Seattle Seahawks
A stack of the Seahawks has to include Lockett. He is seeing a 28% target share on the season, 11th among wide receivers. He also has a very favorable matchup against Tramaine Brock, who has allowed the sixth-most yards in coverage.
Allen had one of the most impressive performances at QB in Week 3. He threw for 261 yards and 4 touchdowns on just 26 pass attempts. Still at a fairly low salary on both DraftKings and FanDuel, I expect him to be popular this week. He draws a-below average Texans secondary that is allowing the sixth-most fantasy points to QBs.
Daniel Jones, QB, New York Giants
Jones is getting plenty of hype and the matchup against the Redskins should not scare people away. As mentioned above, in the “salary changes” section, he has all the tools to return a lot of value at his price.
Terry McLaurin, WR, Washington Redskins
An impressive showing against the Chicago Bears on a primetime Monday game should make McLaurin a trendy pick. He is still cheap — especially on DraftKings at $4,500 — and arguably has his most favorable matchup so far this year against the Giants this week.
Mack is off to a great start this year on the ground. He is getting the consistent touches where he wasn’t last year. Since the beginning of last season, in Mack’s six games with more than 20 touches, he has averaged 22.2 fantasy points per game. Against the Raiders this week, 20 touches are very much in play.
John Brown, WR, Buffalo Bills
Brown has a nightmare matchup against Stephon Gilmore this week. The Patriots have allowed the second-fewest receiving yards to WRs and have yet to allow a single touchdown on defense. Gilmore is also allowing the sixth-lowest NFL passer rating in coverage of 51.6.
Freeman’s fantasy stock was brought back to life in Week 3. He saw a healthy snap share of 90% and had his first efficient game after averaging 2.2 yards per carry in his first two games. The promising snap share should make him more popular, but he is a fade in this matchup against the Titans. The loss of Chris Lindstrom at guard will continue to be impactful and the Titans run defense has looked very stingy outside of a big run by Leonard Fournette when the game was looking out of reach for the Titans.
Allen makes perfect sense this week to play in his great matchup against the Dolphins. There is just that risk factor that the Chargers do not need to rely on him, meaning he chould see a negative gamescript. It seems like a good opportunity for Allen to get a bit of a breather after his insane 16 targets last week. He is likely to be very chalky and this offers a good fade opportunity and counter with some ownership on the Chargers running game.
Austin Hooper, TE, Atlanta Falcons
Hooper is typically a player who is consistent, but never has the breakout game. This past week that wasn’t the case; Hooper had the best fantasy game of his career, including 2 touchdowns. However, it is tough to rely on that touchdown production from Hooper, who had 4 total touchdowns last year. He should come back to earth with a tougher matchup and is a good fade.
Despite how good Sanders has looked this year, he can not run away from the disaster that has been Joe Flacco. It came to light last week against the Packers, with Sanderrs totaling just 2 catches for 10 yards. Seeing Jalen Ramsey in coverage (if he’s active) should not do Sanders any favors this week.
