Jacoby Brissett: Tua being on IR for the Dolphins had opened the door for Brissett, and he looks poised to take full advantage. Brissett dropped a 20 in week 3 without a TD. As he starts to get more comfortable in that offense, I expect those numbers to increase.
Chubba Hubbard: I’ve been preaching all off-season that Hubbard is a really good handcuff to roster. CMC has been injury-prone throughout his career, and those issues have surfaced again. Hubbard looked efficient on TNF and is primed for a solid workload in week 4.
J.J Taylor: Another player that becomes an option due to injury. Taylor is going to be involved in New England as long as White is out with his hip issue. If you need a short-term solution, this might be your guy.
Emmanuel Sanders: Sanders looks like Allen’s favorite red-zone target right now. He saw 6 targets last week and caught 5 of them for 94 yards and a pair of TDs. Sanders will continue to be a viable option as long as Allen keeps looking his way in the endzone.
Marquez Valdez-Scantling: While he’s currently questionable with a hamstring issue, MVS was back in form with the Packers this week. Rodgers was finding him early and often. Even if he doesn’t go this week, MVS is definitely worth a bench stash and a possible start once he’s back of the field.
Tyler Conklin: The season had a slow start for Conklin, but he broke out in a big way Sunday. Conklin saw 8 targets and brought in 7 of them for 70 yards and a score. Those numbers led to him having a better game than Kittle or Kelce this week. While that isn’t going to be the norm, he’s definitely worth a grab in a very desolate TE market.
