Scotty Miller - WR (TB)

The new Julian Edelman has had a very up and down year so far with Tom Brady under center for the Bucs. He has four games of over 9.5 points but also three games under 2 points. However, with Chris Godwin still not being able to play, Antonio Brown still yet to suit up, and Mike Evans still being somewhat hobbled, Miller could find himself an increased role over the next few weeks. Look for him to produce and be viable in deeper leagues until the Bucs receivers can get healthy.

Gus Edwards & J.K. Dobbins - RB (BAL)

The two RBs for the Ravens each scored in double figures against the stellar Pittsburgh defense last week. With Lamar Jackson having some issues throwing the ball, and Mark Ingram expected to miss a few weeks, you might want to take a look at either Dobbins or Edwards for your lineup. Both seem to be viable options as the Ravens are still one of the best running teams in the NFL, and both of them got 15+ carries last week. I would favor Dobbins over Edwards as, when Ingram returns, Dobbins is more likely to remain involved. However, if you are looking for a short term RB substitute, both Edwards and Dobbins should be viable for the next few weeks.

Corey Davis - WR (TEN)

Davis may be the #2 WR in a run-first offense, but he has still managed to score in double figures in all but one game this year. He is behind Derrick Henry and A.J. Brown in terms of touches on the Tennessee offense, but he still gets consistent looks in each outing and has found the endzone in three of his last four games. He should be on your roster as a solid bye week/injury substitution.

Jordan Reed - TE (SF)

An unfortunate injury to George Kittle may create an opportunity for Reed to have a career comeback, granted if he too is able to stay healthy. Kittle is expected to be sidelined for up to 8 weeks with a foot injury, and Reed is back at practice and is now available to be taken off IR. When healthy, Reed is one of the better TEs in the NFL, and the 49ers will certainly look to get him involved as early as this Thursday against the Packers. If Reed is unable to go against Green Bay or, God-forbid, gets injured again, look to add Ross Dwelley to your lineup as the next man up in San Francisco.
