CHASE CLAYPOOL
WR, PITTSBURGH STEELERS


Chase Claypool caught 8-of-13 targets for 69 yards in the Steelers' Week 9 win over the Cowboys.

Claypool led the team in targets (13), but both JuJu Smith-Schuster and Diontae Johnson finished with more yards than the impressive rookie. All three were heavily involved in the game plan, especially after the Cowboys surprisingly jumped out to a lead in the first half. Claypool's production has been up-and-down all season, but he's a player worth investing in due to his rare athletic profile. The Steelers offense should put it on the Bengals next Sunday, making Claypool an upside WR3 play once again.

AUSTIN MACK
WR, NEW YORK GIANTS


Austin Mack caught 4-of-5 targets for 72 yards in the Giants' Week 9 win over Washington.

A 23-year-old UDFA out of Ohio State, Mack entered the proceedings with one career catch for one yard. He got the opportunity because Golden Tate was suspended. Tate hasn't been playing well and there should remain snaps for the taking behind Darius Slayton and Sterling Shepard, but there is zero reason to believe someone who would max out as Daniel Jones' No. 4 passing game target will provide fantasy value down the stretch.

ANTONIO GIBSON
RB, WASHINGTON FOOTBALL TEAM


Antonio Gibson rushed six times for 20 yards and a touchdown in Washington's Week 9 loss to the Giants, adding three receptions for 35 additional yards.

Down 20-3 at halftime, Washington did not have the luxury of "establishing the run," but that did not prevent Gibson from finding the end zone on the ground for the second consecutive game. Frustratingly, he ceded 12 touches to No. 2 back J.D. McKissic, nine of which were catches. Considering Gibson's receiving background, it remains baffling that Washington is so intent on using McKissic in the passing game. Either way, the lead remains Gibson's lack of competition on early downs. He will remain an upside RB2 for Week 10's appetizing matchup with the Lions' run defense.

GABRIEL DAVIS
WR, BUFFALO BILLS


Gabriel Davis caught 4-of-5 targets for 70 yards and a touchdown in the Bills' Week 9 win over the Seahawks.

With the Bills really airing it out against the league's worst pass defense, Davis had his most productive day since Week 3. The fact that it coincided with John Brown's return to relevance, however, means it will be hard to bank on going forward against better secondaries. Davis remains an extremely high-upside hold in Dynasty leagues who will have trouble providing consistent enough re-draft returns.

ZACK MOSS
RB, BUFFALO BILLS


Zack Moss ran nine times for 18 yards and a touchdown in the Bills' Week 9 win over the Seahawks, adding two receptions for 30 additional yards.

Determined to gash the Seahawks through the air, the Bills never bothered to establish the run. They had just three first half carries as they raced to a 24-10 halftime lead. Nevertheless, it still ended up a good day for Moss, who received the Bills' only true goal-line carry, converting it for a one-yard touchdown. He out-touched Devin Singletary 11-5, out-gaining him 48-34. When it is not Josh Allen running it inside the 10-yard line, Moss has clearly become the Bills' preferred option in the scoring area. He is settling into the RB20-28 range as Singletary fades from FLEX relevance. The Cardinals are on tap for Week 10 before the Bills' Week 11 bye.

TUA TAGOVAILOA
QB, MIAMI DOLPHINS


Tua Tagovailoa completed 20-of-28 passes for 248 yards and two touchdowns in Miami's 34-31 Week 9 upset over the Cardinals.

He also ran the ball seven times for 35 yards including his game-clinching sneak on 3rd-and-short with one minute remaining. Kyler Murray out-performed Tagovailoa in the box score, but the rookie still shook off his underwhelming debut in making clutch throws into oncoming pressure down the stretch despite being without Myles Gaskin (knee), Preston Williams (foot), and Isaiah Ford (traded). Tua also drove the field to put Miami in position for the go-ahead field goal with 3:35 remaining, finding Mike Gesicki for a 19-yard gain when it counted most. One would imagine the "audition" rumors that swirled around him to start the week have been put to bed. Tagovailoa will rank as a high-end starter for 2-QB leagues in next week's matchup against the Chargers.

DEVIN DUVERNAY
WR, BALTIMORE RAVENS


Devin Duvernay caught his lone target for 20 yards in the Ravens' Week 9 win against the Colts, adding one rush for -1 yards.

Not many Baltimore pass catchers are going to be fantasy relevant when Lamar Jackson throws the ball just 23 times, like he did against the Colts. The speedy Duvernay is a savvy stash in deep formats but shouldn't be in fantasy lineups next week against New England.

KJ HAMLER
WR, DENVER BRONCOS


KJ Hamler caught 6-of-10 targets for 75 yards in the Broncos' Week 9 loss to the Falcons.

Hamler saw the largest role of his rookie season with 10 looks in the passing game and rush which he took for an additional 15 yards. The Broncos were forced to throw 48 times which was a clear factor in Hamler's double-digit targets. Don't expect to see 10 targets for Hamler again anytime soon unless Denver is going to keep throwing at such a torrid pace in their coming games. They get the Raiders next week the overall scoring should come back down from the 61 points put on the board this week. Hamler is a WR4/5 going forward.

MICHAEL PITTMAN
WR, INDIANAPOLIS COLTS


Michael Pittman caught 4-of-7 targets for 56 yards in the Colts' Week 9 loss to the Ravens.

Functioning as the team's WR1 with T.Y. Hilton (groin) out, Pittman was close to coming down with a couple deep ball from Philip Rivers. He had a long catch of 18 yards against Baltimore's stout defense as he tied Marcus Johnson for the lead in targets. Pittman could continue to develop an every-week role in the Indy offense, though Hilton's anticipated return could dampen his fantasy floor. Pittman should be rostered in 12-team leagues. He could be a WR3 option next week against the Titans, depending on Hilton's status.

JAMES ROBINSON
RB, JACKSONVILLE JAGUARS


James Robinson had 25 carries for 99 yards and a touchdown in Week 10 against the Texans.

The 25 carries were a season high for Robinson. He didn't have any catches on two targets this week. Robinson's touchdown was a goal-line conversion he set up with a tackle-breaking 11-yard run. Robinson benefitted from Jake Luton opening up the offense, potentially getting him into better game-scripts moving forward. Averaging over 100 total yards, Robinson has a Week 10 matchup with a Packers defense that's allowed the second most touchdowns to running backs this season.

DEEJAY DALLAS
RB, SEATTLE SEAHAWKS


DeeJay Dallas rushed seven times for 31 yards and a touchdown in the Seahawks' Week 9 loss to the Bills, adding two receptions for eight additional yards.

As feared, Dallas was in a much more even rotation with Travis Homer after Homer wasn't really healthy enough to play in Week 8. Dallas and Homer both handled nine touches, with Homer out-gaining Dallas 80-39 thanks to a 50-yard reception. Recent signing Alex Collins handled two carries. We knew coming in the Seahawks probably wouldn't be running much, but that was especially true after the Bills raced out to a 24-7 second quarter lead. Dallas' score was a four-yard run in the third where he went out-touched through the first level of the defense. If either Chris Carson (foot) or Carlos Hyde (hamstring) can return for Week 10 against the Rams, Dallas will be little more than a last-gasp FLEX in fantasy.

J.K. DOBBINS
RB, BALTIMORE RAVENS


J.K. Dobbins rushed 12 times for 30 yards in the Ravens' Week 9 win against the Colts, adding two reception for five yards.

Fantasy managers can't hope for much more than 14 or 15 touches for Dobbins with Mark Ingram (ankle) sidelined. The rookie did almost nothing with his Week 9 opportunity, once again losing goal line carries to Gus Edwards. It's a disappointing outing for Dobbins after he went for 113 yards on 15 carries last week against the Steelers. Dobbins will be a RB3 candidate with little upside in Week 10 against the Patriots.

JERRY JEUDY
WR, DENVER BRONCOS


Jerry Jeudy caught 7-of-14 targets for 125 yards and a touchdown in the Broncos' Week 9 loss to the Falcons.

Jeudy has had an underwhelming rookie campaign to this point but Week 9 will go down as a breakout performance for him. He set career-highs across the board and recorded his first 100-yard game. It wasn't perfect for him though as he did record a costly drop in the fourth-quarter and only managed to bring down half of his targets. Jeudy has had no problems creating separation at the NFL level but his quarterback play has capped his ceiling so far. He remains a WR2/3 option going forward because of Drew Lock's accuracy struggles.

JUSTIN JEFFERSON
WR, MINNESOTA VIKINGS


Justin Jefferson caught 3-of-4 targets for 64 yards in the Vikings' Week 9 win over the Lions.

Jefferson's catches went for 22, 35, and seven yards. His four targets were tied for second on the team on a day Kirk Cousins threw just 20 passes. Cousins has attempted just 34 throws total over the last two weeks. Jefferson has a combined 6-90-0 line in that span. Jefferson will be an upside WR3 next week at Chicago.

D'ANDRE SWIFT
RB, DETROIT LIONS


D'Andre Swift rushed 13 times for 64 yards in the Lions' Week 9 loss to the Vikings.

He added three catches for 33 yards on five targets in the pass game. Swift's 13 carries were his second-most of the season and easily led the team on a day the Lions played in catch-up mode most of the afternoon. The rookie is Detroit's preferred back when trailing. But this remains a three-man backfield and will keep Swift from truly emerging as a reliable fantasy asset until one of Kerryon Johnson or Adrian Peterson is eliminated. Swift will be an RB3/FLEX next week against Washington.

Now has 10 TDs in his first 10 games.

Aiyuk may work out but man, this guy was the #49 pick.

He's a deep threat so maybe Kyle didn't think that mattered.

He must be able to block on the edge because he's almost as big as a TE.

Return to San Francisco 49ers
