The FDx Wire grasps the traditional waiver-wire report. However, we have added our FDx Score to illustrate how our proprietary algorithms feel about the player. The higher the number, the better that player will perform. Also, includes a projected point total for the week. Visit The Fantasy Doctors Analytics HERE for our Top Week 10 Projections. You will not see any adds to a player over 70% ownership in two leagues.
Jacoby Brissett, QB IND (45.23 FDx Score/12.5 Projected Points)
14.5% ownership in ESPN leagues
59% ownership in CBS leagues
19.8% ownership in Yahoo leagues
Jacoby Brissett put the Houston Texans on ice last week as he completed 20 of 30 passes for 308-yards and two touchdowns and 12 carries on two runs. He hit T.Y. Hilton twice for touchdowns. One was a 45-yarder and then hit him again for 80-yards. The long gainer was mostly due to Hilton diving over a defender and not being ruled down, got up and completed the score. This is the second week now where he has thrown for two-touchdowns. He now has a 10-4 total touchdown to interception ratio.
Damien Williams (51.93 FDx Score/4.69 Projected Points)/Kenyan Drake (73.19 FDx Score/10.15 Projected Points) RB, MIA
23.8/57.5% ownership in ESPN leagues
50/85% ownership in CBS leagues
33/53% ownership in Yahoo leagues
The Dolphins shipped off Jay Ajayi which opened the door for Damien Williams and Kenyan Drake. This is a toss-up situation as both players should get equal time on the field. Against the Oakland Raiders the experiment was first tried and as expected it was split. Williams had seven carries for 14-yards while Drake had nine rushes for 69-yards. Williams caught six passes for 47-yards and Drake pulled in six for 35-yards. The difference is that Williams scored on one of his receptions.
Devontae Booker, RB DEN (51.07 FDx Score/4.57 Projected Points)
5.5% ownership in ESPN leagues
21% ownership in CBS leagues
4% ownership in Yahoo leagues
Even though the running back committee is backloaded in Denver, Booker has the freshest legs. He is coming off an injury that has kept him out for most of the season. Against the Chiefs he carried the rock six times for 40-yards and a touchdown. He also caught three passes. He will remain the backup to C.J. Anderson, but he has a lot of potential to get more shares as the Broncos slip deeper out of the playoffs.
Corey Clement, RB PHI (Not Ranked)
0.8% ownership in ESPN leagues
5% ownership in CBS leagues
2% ownership in Yahoo leagues
The Philadelphia Eagles have a crowded cabinet when it comes to running backs. Jay Ajayi, LeGarrette Blount, Wendall Smallwood, and now Corey Clement. It’s a good thing that both Darren Sproles and Donnel Pumphrey are both out for the season. Clement is a mixture of both Sproles and Ajayi and he got 12 carries which he turned into 51-yards against the Broncos. This is the second consecutive week with 50+ yards. Clement has totaled 105-yards on 22 carries (4.77 ypc). He wont take over Ajayi nor Blount, but he should continue to get 10-12 carries a game.
Robert Woods, WR LAR (58.68 FDx Score/4.58 Projected Points)
26.3% ownership in ESPN leagues
25% ownership in CBS leagues
35% ownership in Yahoo leagues
Jared Goff and Robert Woods exposed whichever defense the New York Giants decided to throw their direction. Woods would score twice and gain 70-yards on four receptions. The first came on a third-and-33. On a short pass, he was able to play Frogger all the way into the end zone, maneuvering his way through the defense. His second was a shorty four-yard play. Woods and the Rams will take on the weak secondary of the Texans next week, so he could double-up again.
Marquise Goodwin, WR SFO (68.3 FDx Score/6.78 Projected Points)
9.3% ownership in ESPN leagues
15% ownership in CBS leagues
12% ownership in Yahoo leagues
Goodwin is a playmaker and a boom or bust fantasy option. For instance, in the last three games he has six receptions for 148 yards. That is a 24.6 yard average per catch. In that, however is zero touchdowns and he didn’t catch a single pass in one game in that set. The 49ers are hurting though. With both Kittle and Garcon out, Goodwin could come into play a lot more.
Cole Beasley, WR DAL (46.32 FDx Score/2.67 Projected Points)
17.2% ownership in ESPN leagues
30% ownership in CBS leagues
19% ownership in Yahoo leagues
Beasley was good on four of six targets for 24-yards and two touchdowns. That isn’t going to light the pinball machine when it comes to just four-yards a catch. The reason why I like him is that Dez Bryant could be out anywhere between one and three weeks. He hasn’t had more than four receptions in a game, but I think that will improve with Bryant out of the lineup for a bit. Also, don’t forget Zeke missing time as a possibility as well.
Curtis Samuel, WR CAR (51.85 FDx Score/3.49 Projected Points)
4.9% ownership in ESPN leagues
12% ownership in CBS leagues
9% ownership in Yahoo leagues
Samuel hasn’t done much as a rookie, however, with the trade of Kelvin Benjamin it opens the door for the multi-talent wide receiver. In eight games this season he has 10 receptions on 19 targets for 70-yards, he also has 64 yards rushing. Last week he did get the most receptions and tied for most targets. Three receptions on five targets. Willing to take a risk with a high ceiling receiver, Samuel should be your guy to grab.
