Ty Johnson- RB- Lions
The Lions have been playing well thus far this season, but there run game looks like its old self. Kerryon Johnson has managed to find the endzone, but his yard per carry is a dismal 2.6. Ty Johnson might be someone fantasy owners want to target this week. The Lions released C.J. Anderson last week, which shows confidence in the rookie running back out of Maryland. If Kerryon Johnson continues to struggle or gets hurt, Ty Johnson might be someone worth starting. So far, Ty Johnson is averaging 4.1 yards per carry off 10 attempts. Pick up and stash Ty Johnson on your bench for a buck.

Justin Jackson- RB- Chargers
If you're in need of a running back, Chargers running back Justin Jackson might be worth picking up and starting as a flex this week against the Dolphins. Even though Jackson hasn't seen the endzone this season, he's averaging 7.9 yards per carry and had two touchdowns called back. Miami might be the worst team in the league. They've allowed the most rushing yards through three games this season. Expect the Chargers to run the score up big in this game, and expect Jackson to see some garbage time touchdowns. Pick up and start Jackson for a buck this week.

Hunter Renfrow- WR- Raiders
The former Clemson wide receiver Hunter Renfrow might be a good pick up in full PPR leagues. The Raiders do not have a ton of depth at wide receiver, and Derrick Carr consistently throws the five-yard pass. Renfrow is playing the primary slot receiver and has the third most targets of anyone on the Raiders' roster behind Darren Waller and Tyrell Williams. So far on the season, Renfrow has nine receptions for 71 yards. Renfrow and the Raiders face the Colts next week. Expect Carr to be checking down to his tight end and slot receiver most of the game. Pick up Renfrow for a buck.

Mack Hollins- WR- Eagles
With Injuries to Alshon Jeffrey and DeSean Jackson, the Eagles are using rookie wide receiver Mack Hollins as their temporary solution. Hollins has 15 targets in the last two weeks and has recorded nine receptions for 112 yards. Most fantasy owners expected J.J. Arcega-Whiteside to get most of the reps, but Hollins has out-snapped and out-performed the Spanish wide out. The Eagles have a tough matchup against an improved Packers defense this weekend. If Philly plans to move the ball, Hollins will have to step up and make big plays. Not sure if he's worth a start this week, but Hollins is worth a buck and spot on your bench.

Paul Richardson- WR- Red Skins
Paul Richardson has quietly produced a decent 2019 season through three games. On Monday against a tough Bears' defense, Richardson had eight receptions for 83 yards and a score. So far on the year, he has 15 receptions for 135 yards and two touchdowns. The Red Skins run game is abysmal, so expect Case Keenum to make plenty of passes in the upcoming games. The Skins face off against the Giants this week, whose defense has given up the second most fantasy points to wide receivers this year. Richardson might have a possible monster game this weekend, and you might be able to get him for a buck.

Dwayne Haskins Jr.- QB- Red Skins
Just Like Daniel Jones got the nod last week over Eli Manning, eventually the Red Skins are going to start Dwayne Haskins Jr. over Case Keenum. While Keenum has produced solid numbers for fantasy owners in the first three weeks of the season, he's also turned the ball over quite a bit. Keenum had five turnovers on Monday night; three of them were interceptions and two of them were fumbles. It's only a matter of time before Haskins gets the start, and if you are in a keeper or dynasty league, you might want to consider picking up Haskins now for a buck. The former Heiman finalist has a big arm and is worth a dollar this week.
