Add of The Week: Jamaal Williams, Green Bay Packers RB
The Packers will be up against the Ravens’ vulnerable run defense this upcoming Sunday, and injuries to Ty Montgomery (ribs) and Aaron Jones (knee) will call rookie RB Jamaal Williams into action. Williams racked up 20 carries for just 67 yards. The former BYU standout rushed for a school-record 3,901 yards on 726 carries with 35 touchdowns in his four years in the NCAA. He now gets a chance to brush off the first-game jitters and take advantage of this weak Ravens run defense.
Buy, Sell, Hold
Buy: Robby Anderson, New York Jets WR
First things first: this guy makes plays…a lot of them. His success is due to the fact that QB Josh McCown loves going his way. Resting with a bye this week, Anderson rides a four-game TD streak coupled with at least three catches each game on 23 total targets. Anderson should feast in his next two matchups with the Carolina Panthers and the Kansas City Chiefs, respectively. Lastly, Anderson’s speed is yet just another perk to amplify the number of consistent targets for your wideouts.
Sell: Robert Woods, Los Angeles Rams WR
Yes, Woods has put up two outstanding, back-to-back performances. Yes, he also finished at the top of the list in every receiving category for a second straight week. And, yes, you should sell him high right this minute. Woods has five consecutive tough matchups ahead of him in the Vikings, Saints, Cardinals, Eagles, and the Seahawks—neither of which sounds enticing. While the stats argue to play him, they also are saying trade him, and there is no better time than now.
Hold: Evan Engram, New York Giants TE
With Odell Beckham Jr. and Brandon Marshall out for the season, Engram has emerged as the Giants’ top red zone threat. With three favorable matchups against the Chiefs, Redskins, and Raiders, Engram will look to continue his hot streak of red zone targets, as well as extend his touchdown run, which currently sits at four. I love the rookie TE’s upside for the final stretch of the season, and I strongly believe he will continue to do some serious damage if he can maintain his target production with Eli Manning.
