David Blough- QB- Lions

If you are desperate for a quarterback this week, Lions' QB David Blough might be a decent option. The Lions face the Buccaneers, whose defense has allowed the 4th most fantasy points to quarterbacks this season. Blough had a tough game on the road last week in Minnesota, but he had a decent week on Thanksgiving Day against the Bears at home when he threw for 280 yards and two scores. Blough is playing in Detroit so I expect him to be able to throw for a couple touchdowns Sunday morning. Pick him up and start him this week if you are desperately in need for a quarterback.

Boston Scott- RB- Eagles

Philly running back Boston Scott was a workhorse for the Eagles in the overtime victory Monday night. He ran the ball 10 times for 59 yards and a touchdown, and also recorded six catches for 69 yards. Scott resembled the Darren Sproles type of running back that the Eagles were missing this season. Even though Mile Sanders will continue to be the starting running back, Scott may end up being a solid passing-down option for the Eagles in the long term. This was the first time he was a big part of the Eagles offense, so there is some risk that he doesn't see as many touches once Jordan Howard is back. But he's worth a pickup this week if you can get him for a buck.

DeAndre Washington- RB- Raiders

Depending on the health of Raiders running back Josh Jacobs, DeAndre Washington might be in line for another start this week when Oakland hosts the Jaguars. If Washington does get the start, he will face a Jaguars' defense that has given up the 3rd most fantasy points to running backs this season. Last week against the Titans, Washington ran 14 times for 53 yards a and a score. Washington is an interesting flex play if Jacobs remains sidelined. You should be able to get him for a buck.

Marcus Johnson- WR- Colts

Colts' wide receiver Marcus Johnson might be a player worth picking up this week. Depending on the status of T.Y. Hilton, Johnson has a great matchup when the Colts face the Saints, whose defense has allowed the 2nd most fantasy points to wide receivers this season. Last week against the Buccaneers, he had three receptions for 105 yards and a touchdown. Paris Campbell was placed on the IR this week, so Johnson should see some opportunities as along ad Hilton continues to sit out.

Breshad Perriman- WR- Buccaneers

The former first round pick, Breshad Perriman might be worth a pickup. With Mike Evans doubtful this weekend, Perriman might find himself starting against one of the worst pass defenses in the league. The Bucs face the Lions, whose defense has allowed the 9th most a fantasy points to wide receivers this season. Perriman has produced back to back decent weeks. He recorded five receptions for 87 yards in week 13, and three reception for 40 yards and a score last week against the Colts. Perriman could have another big game as along and quarterback Jameis Winston's thumb injury doesn't get in the way of his accuracy. Pick him up for a buck.

Hayden Hurst- TE- Ravens

After Mark Andrews exited last week's game against the Bills, Ravens' second-string tight end Hayden Hurst recorded three reception for 73 yards and a touchdown. Hurst was actually drafted before Andrews in the same year, but Andrews has outplayed the first round pick this season. Depending on Andrews' health going into a short week against the Jets Thursday, Hurst might be worth picking up and starting. You can get him for a buck this week but Monitor Andrews' injury tag.
