1- Jay Cutler– QB- Bears $5300
Cutler came back from injury and was solid against a top defense in the Vikings a couple Mondays ago. So getting a weaker Bucs defense should put Cutler back in line to do more of the same. But with Cutler it is always buyer beware but this week it is worth the risk.
2- Ronnie Hillman– RB- Vikings $3500
Since Adrian Peterson went down both McKinnon and Asiata have had their chance to take the top running back spot for the Vikings and failed. Hillman showed some promise in a limited role last week. And even with McKinnon coming back I think he could be the best and cheap option against the poor Skins run defense.
3- Tyreek Hill- WR- Chiefs $3800
Reeeeek could be in line for a decent game at a low price against the suspect Carolina corners. And with Maclin hobbling once again it could be Hill or Albert Wilson’s ($3300) chance to take advantage. You are asking Alex Smith coming off an injury to do some damage but it is possible.
4- Tavon Austin– WR- Rams $4100
I have zero faith in Austin or the Rams but still going to throw this out there. Austin seems to be an solid scorer every other week. And guess what? He sucked last week. And the Jets do give up big plays and have been a fantasy target all season for receivers.
5- Vernon Davis– TE- Redskins $2700
Only doing this because he is so low and he has been productive ever since Jordan Reed missed games. Reed is back and the Vikings are on the other side of the ball but still think Davis can do something Sunday. The Vikings are a mess and could struggle once again.
