I’m not going to lie, I had a pretty impressive week of adds last week. I am not saying this to brag (entirely) but to emphasize the importance of my previous article.
I attempt to stay away from repeat additions 2 weeks in a row so I won’t be mentioning guys like Jonathan Williams, James Washington, Bo Scarbrough, Ryan Griffin and Deebo Samuel again but they’re all worth additions this week and at a higher priority level than the individuals mentioned below (particularly Williams and Washington).
With that said, let’s look at who else you can bring in to your fantasy unit with the fantasy regular season about finished.

Sam Darnold, QB, New York Jets – 40% owned
Darnold is no longer seeing ghosts, and that’s largely aided by his soft schedule. He has put up 3+ touchdowns in his last 2 games (4 against the Raiders and 3 against Washington) and is set to face off against the hapless Cincinnati Bengals and Miami Dolphins in his upcoming matchups. Darnold is a QB that can easily propel you into the playoffs and is worth a claim if you’re looking for help at the quarterback position.
Cole Beasley, WR, Buffalo Bills – 29% owned
Beasley has made an appearance on this list a few times now and there’s a reason for that. Beasley is a dependable receiver that will give you a satisfactory floor when you need a fill-in. Now, the Bills have some tough matchups forthcoming, but they have proven that they have an offense that can produce fantasy wise. Pick up Beasley and play him in tough spots and you shouldn’t be too disappointed in the results.
Rashaad Penny, RB, Seattle Seahawks – 21% owned
The Chris Carson fumbling saga has re-surfaced and this time Penny is healthy enough to be there to take advantage of it. Now, that’s not to say the Seahawks will go away from Carson, I doubt they will, but it’s certainly a situation to monitor. The running back carousel around the league is not a pretty one at this time and after a 129-yard, 1 touchdown performance, Penny is worth gambling on.
A.J. Brown, WR, Tennessee Titans – 17% owned
Hey, everybody, Ryan Tannehill is playing like a respectable quarterback in a new uniform. The Titans passing unit is a viable option in the fantasy world, with Tannehill at the forefront of interest. However, A.J. Brown has proven himself to be the favorite option for Tannehill and is a boom-or-bust play every week. I’m hoping he’s going to be more boom than bust after the bye week and continue the type of play he showed during his 5 target, 4 catch, 135-yard, 1 touchdown performance on Sunday.
