Latavius Murray- RB- Saints

With Taysom Hill taking the reins in New Orleans, Latavius Murray has seen more opportunities in the last two games. Last Sunday against the Broncos, Murray had 19 carries for 124 yards and two scores. Alvin Kamara is still the starting running back, but Murray has out-touched Kamara in the last two games. Murray's elevated playing time could be due to the Saints being up early against two below average teams, and Coach Sean Payton wanting to rest Kamara. New Orleans will see the Falcons in week 13 and expect him to get plenty of carries. Get him for a buck today.

Kyle Rudolph- TE- Vikings

As long as Irv Smith Jr. is recovering from a groin/back injury, Kyle Rudolf should have fantasy relevance. Last week against the Panthers, Rudolf had seven receptions for 68 yards. The Viking play the Jaguars in week 13, whose defense has given up a ton of fantasy points to tight ends this season. If Smith Jr. misses the game on Sunday, Rudolf is a player to start on your team.

Jalen Hurts- QB- Eagles

It almost seems inevitable that former Oklahoma quarterback Jalen Hurts will get his shot in Philadelphia. Carson Wentz has continued to struggle, and Head Coach Doug Pederson is repeatedly getting pressure from the media to give Hurts a shot. Fantasy owners may want to pick up Hurts now for a buck if they also have Wentz on their roster, or if they belong to a keeper or dynasty league. If Wentz struggles against the Packers this week, Hurts could get his chance at halftime. Get him today for a buck.

Frank Gore- RB- Jets

While fantasy owners should always be cautious when playing a Jets' player, Frank Gore may be worth looking at this week in free agency. Last week against the Dolphins, Gore led the team in carries with 18 rushes for 74 yards. This week, the Jets face the Raiders whose defense ranks in the bottom 10 in total yards allowed per game. If you need a running back in week 13, Gore may be the guy to pick up.

Damiere Byrd- WR- Patriots

While there hasn't been many briught spots on the Patriots offense, fantasy owners may want to consider picking up Damiere Byrd for a buck this week. He's recorded at least seven targets in the last three games. He might be the only wide receiver on the Patriots offense who has shown chemistry with quarterback Cam Newton. You can't trust Bryd every week, but he may be worth starting against the Chargers come Sunday. Get him for a buck.

K.J. Hamler- WR- Broncos

Ignoring last week's game against the Saints, fantasy owners should look at picking up K.J. Hamler this week for a buck. In the weeks 9-11, Hamler had 26 targets. He's still not on the same page with quarterback Drew Lock, but he's beginning to get more involved in the offense. Hamler might not be a relevant this season, but he could be good in keeper and dynasty leagues. Pick him for a buck today.
