Adds:

Robert Woods, WR, Buffalo Bills

Trusting anyone in the Bills passing game is risky given their current quarterback conundrum, but Woods is in a good position to produce this week. Both Percy Harvin and Sammy Watkins are injured and at this point it is highly doubtful both of them will play. With the Bills traveling to London to take on a mediocre Jacksonville defense this week, look for Robert to come out of the woodswork and have a good performance this week.

Davante Adams, WR, Green Bay Packers

Normally someone like Adams would appear in the buy low section, but considering he is owned in only 56 percent of ESPN.com leagues, it appears that enough fantasy owners have dropped the Green Bay wideout for him to be mentioned here. Adams has been plagued by injuries this year but appears to be getting close to playing, and once he hits the field he should fulfill the fantasy hype he received after Jordy Nelson tore his ACL in the preseason.

Brittany Klug (‘16), Clark University

Klug beat the author in an eliminator pool and her reward was a mention in this column. If you want any sort of football advice, she is the person you should consult.


 

Drops:

Kirk Cousins, QB, Washington

Cousins has been really bad lately, which is not surprising given his ability at the position. If this performance continues, which it probably will, Washington Coach and real life Muppet Jay Gruden will have to turn to backup Colt McCoy. Cut Cousins now before he sees the bench.

Cole Beasley, WR, Dallas Cowboys

Before the season, some thought Beasley might have some PPR upside as the Cowboys checkdown. Now, with Tony Romo and Dez Bryant both sidelined, Beasley has barely eclipsed 200 receiving yards on the season. If you’re truly desperate in a PPR league Beasley might be worth a spot on your bench, but otherwise send him to the waiver wire.


 

Buy Low:

Eddie Lacy, RB, Green Bay Packers

Lacy’s value is at a career low at the moment, as James Starks just looks better and coach Mike McCarthy has suggested that Starks might see the bulk of the carries going forward. He makes an appearance in this column as a pure bet on his talent, and a bet on Starks’ injury history. Lacy will probably end up as the Packers’ main back one way or another, so see what value you can get now.


 

Sell High:

Gary Barnidge, TE, Cleveland Browns

Barnidge has been a fantastic discovery for fantasy owners, as he has scored 5 touchdowns in the past 4 weeks. This will probably not continue, and even if he remains as a favorite for quarterback Josh McCown, his production will decrease.
