Week 7 Add/Drop – the Week of the Randle

Joseph Randle – if you’re in need of a 1 week start at RB, look no further. Dallas has been strong on the ground this year and RBs have also caught a ton of balls out of the backfield. Murray is always an injury risk so you might get lucky and this could turn out to be more valuable than just a 1 week add.

Rueben Randle – he’s slightly more than 50% owned in most leagues, so normally I won’t give a write up on a guy that is owned that heavily, but Randle isn’t much more owned than 50% and adding him is worth it. The Giants are underwhelmed with Hakeem Nicks and are also fielding offers for him which means they have increasing faith in Randle as their #2 option behind Cruz.

Jeff Cumberland – with Kellen Winslow suspended, Cumberland becomes Geno Smith’s only real TE option in the offense. Smith has had success with his TEs so far this season so Cumberland could be a very sneaky add this week.

Brandon Jacobs – I can’t believe I’m recommending adding Jacobs. While I believe he just had his best week of the season, he’s still the featured back in New York as long as David Wilson and Andre Brown are out.

Jarrett Boykin – if James Jones misses any time, Boykin will step into the #2 wide receiver role opposite Jordy Nelson and probably the #3 receiving option behind Nelson and Jermichael Finley, but we’ve seen inconsistency throughout Finley’s career to suggest that he might not fully take the reigns as the #2 option and that the #3 receiving option in Green Bay can be an effective one.

Lastly, I really need to get this off my chest… WHY IS JUSTIN BLACKMON STILL ONLY 53% OWNED IN ESPN LEAGUES??? First of all, this guy should’ve been drafted in ALL formats regardless of his 4 week suspension; he’s a beast. Second of all, the Jags will always be playing from behind and throwing. Lastly, GO GET HIM NOW IF HE’S AVAILABLE IN YOUR LEAUGE!

Week 6 Add/Drop – Keenan or Kel?

Keenan Allen – Allen would be my top target of the week if I was in need of a WR. I had touted him in the preseason as a sleeper pick, and predictable injuries to Danario Alexander and Malcom Floyd have thrust Allen into a starting job alongside Vincent Brown. Eddie Royal, as anyone who has played fantasy football for a while should’ve known, was a flash in the pan and as far as I’m concerned is done which means Allen has the chance to be the #1 option for the rest of the year in SD. Vincent Brown is more of a slot receiver and has had injury problems himself so go grab Allen if he’s available.

Terrance Williams – I think Williams still has a role on this team even after Miles Austin comes back. Look for him to continue to provide value in the short term and possibly longer if Austin can never quite get back up to full speed.

Donald Brown – with Ahmad Bradshaw done for the year, Brown steps into the #2 role in Indy for the foreseeable future. If anything happens to Richardson or if Richardson continues to be horrible, Brown could develop into a solid fantasy option down the stretch.

Garrett Graham – Owen Daniels is out for 4-6 weeks, so if you were a Daniels owner or are looking for a fix at the TE spot, Graham might be able to provide some help. He had 3 TDs and 3 solid games in his first 4 weeks and that was with Daniels playing along side him. Schaub has been awful, but if he can turn it around just a little then Graham could be in for a nice little stretch over the next 4-6 weeks.
