I really don’t like that every week ends with players going on the IR. This week was no exception. Carson Palmer might be done for his career, and Jay Cutler is gone for a couple weeks at the very least. Here’s to hoping next week ends with lots of scoring, a Vikings and Packers loss, and no one seriously hurt
Jameis Winston (TB) - 23.2 points
Winston was questionable all week to play. I was asked whether to start him or Josh McCown, I chose McCown, Dolphins defense is a little easier than the Bills. In standard scoring, McCown did outscore Winston but you did well either way. Winston balled out against the Bills though, especially for fantasy purposes. Oh, and where did Winston go to school?
FN Advice: Winston is a low end QB1, that should be more of an on roster streamer
TJ Yeldon (Jax) - 19.7 points
Yeldon finally got into a game and it paid off big for the Jags. 9 carries for 122 and a score. Most of that was on 1 run, but, it counts all the same. Yeldon took advantage of Founette being out in a big way.
FN Advice: Yeldon is nothing more than a potential Fournette handcuff
Amari Cooper (Oak) - 33 points
Cooper has a problem with drops, he dropped 2 balls on TNF. However, he caught 11 for over 200 yards and a couple house calls. Cooper is a massive talent that needs to work a little more on his focus, when he does, he’s a superstar
FN Advice: Cooper is back into the WR2 conversation
Jason Witten (Dal) - 11.4 points
Witten is an oldy but goody. The TD catch was a beautiful one handed thing. Witten just keeps plugging along and there is something to be said about that. Believe it or not, he’s a top 10 TE for the season.
FN Advice: Witten is a TE streamer that, like most TEs, hopes for a TD
Week 8 will be the week of health! Speak life and declare it!
