Kapri Bibbs- RB- Packers

The Packers fear that starting running back Aaron Jones might have sprained his MCL, which means he could miss the rest of the season with only two weeks remaining. Fantasy owners might want to look at picking up Kapri Bibbs if Jamaal Williams isn’t available this week against the Jets. Bibbs was claimed off waivers after the Redskins dropped him this week. Williams will get the start, but Bibbs should see some action if Williams struggles. The Packers face the Jets this Sunday, whose defense has given up the 10th fewest fantasy points to running backs this season. Bibbs might be a good dollar pick up this week to stash on your bench in case anything happens to Williams.




Damien Williams- RB- Chiefs

Depending on if Spencer Ware returns this Sunday night against the Seahawks, fantasy owners might want to consider picking up Damien Williams this week. In last Thursday’s game against the Chargers, Williams rushed 10 times for 49 yards and two scores, and also recorded six receptions for 74 yards. Even if Ware returns this week, it’s not certain that Williams’s wouldn‘t get more touches. Williams has been just as productive as Ware since the Chiefs cut Kareem Hunt. It wouldn’t be shocking to see a running back by committee approach this Sunday in Seattle. Pick up Williams for a buck and start him if Ware missed week 16.





Robert Foster- WR- Bills

The Bills undrafted rookie wide receiver Robert Foster has been hot in the last few weeks. In the Bills’ last five games, Foster has 17 receptions for 438 yards and two scores. Last week against the Lions, Foster recorded four receptions for 108 yards and a touchdown. Foster and quarterback Josh Allen seem to be getting more and more on the same page. Buffalo faces the Patriots this week, whose defense has given up the 11th fewest fantasy points to wide receivers this season. Although the Patriots have a decent pass defense, I expect the Bills will have to make some big plays through the air to keep the game close. Foster could bring that big-play making ability this week, and you can get him for a buck.





Antonio Gates- TE- Chargers

If Keenan Allen misses this Saturday’s game against the Ravens, future hall of famer Antonio Gates may be worth picking up and starting for a buck. After Allen exited last weeks’ game against the Chiefs, Gates made a few big catches that helped the drive continue. He recorded four receptions for 54 yards. Even though the Chargers face a tough Baltimore defense, the Ravens have allowed the 11th most fantasy points to tight ends this season. If you are desperate for a tight end this week, you can pick up Gates and start him for a dollar.





Robby Anderson- WR- Jets

Fantasy owners that are desperate for a wide receiver this week might want to look at Jets’ Robby Anderson. In the last two weeks, Anderson has 11 receptions for 172 yards and two scores. The Jets face the Packers this Sunday, whose defense has given up the 4th most fantasy points to wide receivers all season. While Anderson has not been as consistent as he was in 2017, he seem to be getting closer to the same page with quarterback Sam Darnold. Anderson would be a risky start this week, but he brings upside with his big play-making ability. Pick him up and start this week against the Packers terrible defense.





Josh Allen- QB- Bills

Former Wyoming quarterback Josh Allen has been a good fantasy quarterback since he returned in week 12 from injury. While he’s not lighting up the stat sheet in terms of passing yards and efficiency, Allen has been using his legs to get first downs and touchdowns. So far on the season, Allen has six rushing touchdowns, along with his six passing touchdowns. He’s had two games over 100 yards rushing and almost added a third in week 12 against the Jags, recording 99 yards. Allen has a decent matchup against the Patriots this weekend, whose defense has allowed the 9th most fantasy points to quarterbacks in 2018. Allen might be the quarterback you need to win your championship. Get him for a dollar.
