Start him!

 

Ronnie Hillman or CJ Anderson, RBs, Denver Broncos

I’m kind of cheating with this start since I selected both Denver running backs. The idea is valid, though. New Quarterback Brock Osweiler will probably heavily rely on the running game, and the Broncos travel to Chicago to take on a Bears defense that has allowed the seventh most yards per carry in the league. Both of the Denver running backs are good plays this week.

 

Joique Bell, RB, Detroit Lions

This should only apply to those of you who are desperate. Bell has proven to be offensive coordinator Jim Bob Cooter’s running back of choice. He was given the ball 17 times on Sunday against the Packers. Yes, he only rushed for 2.6 yards per carry, but he at least has the opportunity to produce. The Raiders have not been overly impressive against the run, giving Bell the opportunity to finally play well this week.

 

Sit him!

 

Doug Martin, RB, Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Martin had a few great weeks earlier in the year, but his production has faltered as of lately. The running back has not topped 3.5 yards per carry over the past three games. To compound that, they travel to Philadelphia this week to go up against one of the best run defenses in the NFL in the Eagles. Keep Martin on the bench this week.

 

Tyrod Taylor, QB, Buffalo Bills

The Bills play the Patriots, and while Taylor was great in his last outing against New England, most of that came during garbage time. The Patriots have a great defense, and it is highly unlikely that Taylor can repeat his performance from Week 2. Bench him.

 

Buy Low

 

Demaryius Thomas, WR, Denver Broncos

 

It has been a mini-nightmare of a season for Thomas. He has only scored one touchdown to date. Mix that in with the unknown Brock Osweiler appearing to be the Broncos quarterback for at least a little bit, and many owners could be done with Thomas this season. There is a chance, however, that Osweiler brings more out in Thomas, since he can throw deep unlike Peyton Manning. See if you can get Thomas on the cheap, before we see if Brock can evolve his game.

 

Sell High

 

Kirk Cousins, QB, Washington

This one is pretty simple: Cousins has put up decent stats lately. This probably will not continue, since he isn’t actually a good quarterback. Trade him to someone else and let him regress to the mean on their team.
