Target #1: Elijah Mitchell
Unfortunately, Raheem Mostert got hurt…….again. While we feel for Raheem, this left the door open for Eli Mitchell to explode against the Lions, putting up 104 yards and a touchdown on 19 carries. He looked great in this game and should continue to be the bellcow in Kyle Shanahan’s office with Mostert injured and Trey Sermon being a healthy scratch.
Target #2: Kenneth Gainwell
Rostered in only 10% of leagues (NFL Fantasy), Kenneth Gainwell can be a boost for teams who need Flex Options. Gainwell saw 35% of the snaps for the Eagles while racking up 37 yards and a touchdown on 9 carries along with 2 receptions on 3 targets for 6 yards. He should continue to be a viable Flex Option in the Eagles Jalen Hurts led offense.

Target #3: Mark Ingram
Largely left for dead by the fantasy community, Mark Ingram showed Sunday that he still has some gas left in the tank. Ingram had an impressive 85 yards and a touchdown on 26 carries against the Jaguars. While the Texans won’t play Jacksonville every week, the usage is impressive and at only 3.5% rostered, Ingram is worth a pickup and can be played at RB/Flex in a pinch.
Nyheim Hines (25.9% Rostered)
Tony Jones (3.3% Rostered)
Target #1: Jalen Reagor
Many fantasy players have soured on Jalen Reagor, but he quietly had a very nice week 1 in what appears to be a revamped Eagles offense. Reagor hauled in all 6 of his targets for 49 yards and a touchdown against the Falcons. Reagor’s athleticism offers tremendous upside and at only 2.0% rostered, he should be available in most leagues.

Target #2: Terrace Marshall
The forgotten man on the LSU Superteam has been impressive in Carolina. After making some tremendous catches in the preseason, Marshall has become the undisputed #3 WR for the Panthers. He had a so-so day on Sunday against the Jets with 3 receptions for 26 yards, but this is more of an upside pick-up with him outpacing Robbie Anderson for targets 6 to 3.
Target #3: Tim Patrick
With Jerry Jeudy going down, someone will have to pick up the targets. Tim Patrick is the most likely option for Teddy Bridgewater going forward. Patrick had a nice day Sunday, going for 39 yards and a touchdown on 4 receptions. He is only rostered in .3% of leagues and is a nice option for teams in deeper leagues who need Flex help.

Target #1: Cole Kmet
One of the few bright spots for the Bears on Sunday night was Cole Kmet. Kmet ripped off 5 catches for 42 yards on 7 targets, great numbers for a tight end that’s only rostered in 25.3% of leagues. If you missed out on one of the elite tight ends in your draft, Kmet is definitely worth a pickup.
Target #2: Dalton Schultz
On Thursday, the Cowboys showed everyone that they want to pass, pass and pass some more. A big beneficiary of this was Dalton Schultz who came away with 6 receptions for 45 yards on 6 targets. With the injury to Gallup, Schultz could be looking at even more opportunity in the Dak Attack offense.
Gerald Everett (46% Rostered)
Juwan Johnson (.4% Rostered)
Target #1: Jared Goff
While Goff may not be the most talented QB on the Waiver Wire, this target is more based upon opportunity. The Lions will be playing behind for what appears to be the entire season. This means Goff, who threw 57 times for 338 yards and 3 touchdowns on Sunday against the 49ers, will likely have a pass-heavy game script more times than not. Goff showed that he can be fantasy relevant against one of the best D’s in the league and is a good option for teams in deeper leagues who need a boost at QB.

Target #2: Jameis Winston
After being written off by, well, everyone, Famous Jameis finds himself fantasy relevant once again. Winston had a fantastic day against the Packers, throwing for 148 yards and 5 touchdowns on only 14 completions along with another 36 yards on the ground. Jameis makes for a valuable addition to any fantasy team without an elite QB.
