Carson Wentz, quarterback, Colts. On <25% of rosters

Wentz has produced 17 or more points in all but one matchup, and that was on two bum ankles. With the running game settled behind him, the emergence of Michael Pittman Jr. as a true number one receiver, and some easy matchups along the way, Wentz is definitely worth a pickup at the very least as a backup with the occasional start because of an easy matchup.

Kenneth Gainwell, running back, Eagles. On <30% of rosters

With the injury to Miles Sanders, Gainwell will most likely be getting more volume on the ground to go along with his high target share. Even though he will be sharing the backfield with Boston Scott, Gainwell will surely get the majority of the targets, making him a viable emergency start in PPR leagues.

Kenyan Drake, running back, Raiders. On <60% of rosters

Like Gainwell, Drake’s value relies on the status of Josh Jacobs. With the Raiders now having a bye week, Drake is worth a pickup in case Jacobs misses any games, as he is coming off two consecutive games over 12 points, and could get some more if he gets the lion's share of the touches.

C.J Uzomah, tight end, Bengals. On <10% of rosters

Quarterback Joe Burrow has been balling out in his sophomore year, and tight end C.J Uzomah has seen a massive increase in his production because of that. The reason he is on so few rosters is how maddeningly inconsistent he is, as over the past 4 games he had over 20 points in two of them, only to have 4.5 on average the other two.

Bengals D/ST. On <10% of rosters

With two favorable matchups coming up, and fresh of some very solid performances, the Bengals’ defense and special teams unit might be worth a start, especially this upcoming week against the Jets, led by newly-acquired quarterback Joe Flacco. Even though the value of this unit is not that great after two easy matchups, it is definitely worth picking up against the Jets.
