Evan Engram, TE, Jacksonville Jaguars
Rostered in 44.6% of ESPN Fantasy Football Leagues
Seemingly out of nowhere, Evan Engram put up one of the best Fantasy Football performances so far this season; and as the Fantasy Playoffs approach for many, the Ole Miss product will be a valuable component to your playoff team.
In this game against the Titans, Engram threw out 39.2 PPR points on 11 catches for 162 yards and two touchdowns. The Veteran Tight End wasn’t having a bad season prior to this week, but this game was completely unexpected as his highest total was 15.5 points until Week 14. Thanks to this game, Engram has now slotted to the number four Fantasy Football Tight End, meaning that a top five TE is available in over 50% of leagues.
Evan Engram should be your top priority, unless he isn’t going to start on your team because you have Travis Kelce, Mark Andrews, etc. Next week, Engram and the Jags will take on a great Dallas defense, a challenging yet intriguing matchup for both Evan Engram and Trevor Lawrence.
Elijah Moore, WR, New York Jets
Rostered in 32.9% of ESPN Fantasy Football Leagues
Earlier this year, Elijah Moore threw shade at 2nd year Quarterback Zach Wilson. Moore’s chemistry with Zach Wilson was sub-par to say the least, but the lack of a connection led to him wanting to be traded at the deadline. However, now with Mike White commanding starting duties, Moore is looking like the player we all hoped he could be.
This past week against Buffalo, Moore caught six of his ten targets for 60 yards, and he will be matching up against Detroit’s bottom tier secondary this upcoming week. Previously, Moore was the number three option in the Jets offense, but veteran Corey Davis went down with a Head injury and is set to miss Week 15.
Look for Elijah Moore to fly right in as White’s number two option just in time for the first or second round of the Fantasy Football Playoffs. If you are in need of a plug in Flex for the playoffs, Moore is the guy for you.
Chuba Hubbard, RB, Carolina Panthers
Rostered in 19.1% of ESPN Fantasy Football Leagues
Besides having one of the coolest names in the National Football League, Chuba Hubbard has truly been running wild since coming back from injury. Since coming back in Week Eight, Hubbard has been sharing touches with D'Onta Foreman, and though Foreman is the lead back for the time being, Hubbard could certainly put a dent in Foreman’s carries.
In Week 14 against the Seahawks, Hubbard ran for 66 yards and a touchdown on 14 carries. Foreman also racked up 66 yards rushing, but did so on 21 touches. If Hubbard can keep up this level of efficiency, we could see a small carry distribution change in Carolina; however, the Panthers are near the top in run percentage, so even if Hubbard stays second fiddle to Foreman, he’ll still get a ton of meaningful carries.
The Panthers will take on the Steelers next week, who are ranked 15th in rushing yards against.
