Taysom Hill - QB (NO)

Hill had a terrific fantasy outing in his first start at QB, scoring 24 points and finishing as the fifth highest scoring player on Sunday. His next three games will come against the Broncos, Falcons, and Browns, who are the 18th, 32nd, and 15th ranked defenses against quarterbacks respectively. Hill should continue to perform well if he can cut down on the turnovers and continue to be involved in both the running and passing games.

J.K. Dobbins - RB (BAL)

Dobbins has steadily been getting more and more carries in the Ravens offense, but will be absent in the Ravens Thanksgiving matchup against the Steelers due to testing positive for Covid-19. However, when he is able to return, there will be multiple easy matchups in store down the stretch of the season. The Ravens will face the Cowboys, Jaguars, Giants, and Bengals in the next few weeks, and will have to really put their foot on the gas if they even hope to make the playoffs again this year, as they currently find themselves on the outside looking in. Dobbins should see a large dose of carries against average to below average run defenses in the coming weeks, and could be an x-factor for your team as you make the push towards the playoffs and beyond. If you need a running back off of the wire this week, then Gus Edwards should be the first name on your list as he should be the only healthy RB for Baltimore on Thursday night.

Nelson Agholor - WR (LV)

Agholor has had one of the most jarring five week stretches we’ve seen this year in fantasy football. He scored in double figures in Weeks 7, 9, and 11, and combined for only 0.5 points in Weeks 8 and 10. All that aside, Agholor is a top 40 receiver and has two very easy matchups against the Falcons and Jets in the next two weeks. He should be a decent FLEX play in deeper leagues as you make your push towards the playoffs.
