Christian Watson, WR, Green Bay Packers
Rostered in 6% of ESPN Fantasy Football leagues
Christian Watson is coming off the best game of his rookie year. The former North Dakota State receiver caught four of his eight targets for 107 yards and three touchdowns, amounting up to an incredible 32.7 PPR points. The question with Watson is consistency. Before this game, Watson hadn’t cracked double digit fantasy points with his highest total being 9.3 points in Week Four against New England.
Watson’s upside is extremely high, and he’ll continue to get looks while fellow rookie Romeo Doubs is on the IR; however, we need to see more consistency before we place him in our starting Fantasy Football lineups. At the end of the day, Watson is a nice stash option with a major “boom” possibility. If he is still available in your league, pick him up.
Foster Moreau, TE, Las Vegas Raiders
Rostered in 12.3% of ESPN Fantasy Football leagues
Overall, it has been a pretty disappointing year for the Las Vegas Raiders. After having one of the most hyped up offseasons, the Raiders are 2-7 and seemingly out of the playoff race.
The Raiders’ versatile Tight End, Darren Waller, has also had a pretty disappointing 2022 season as he’s struggled to stay healthy. The former Pro Bowler hasn’t played since Week Four and is currently on the IR. You can’t replace Darren Waller, he brings versatility that can be outmatched by only a few in the league, but Foster Moreau has filled that void with some pretty decent play.
In regards to Fantasy Football, Moreau has picked up 32.6 Fantasy Points since Week Seven, including a touchdown last week against Indianapolis. Living in the short part of the field, Moreau has established himself as Derek Carr’s primary Tight End option. He’s a high volume low yardage Tight End, making him valuable in PPR leagues. If you need a spot start at Tight End, look for Foster Moreau ahead of his Week Eleven matchup against Denver.
Cole Kmet, TE, Chicago Bears
Rostered in 35% of ESPN Fantasy Football leagues
Cole Kmet and the Bears offense has been rolling. Justin Fields has been playing at a Pro Bowl level, and Kmet has been the main beneficiary.
Before Week Eight, Kmet hadn’t scored a touchdown; now ahead of a Week Eleven matchup at Atlanta, the 23 year old Tight End has scored five, including back to back multi touchdown games against Miami and Detroit.
Kmet’s hot streak is also due to an increase in targets, in his last two games Kmet has 13 targets, in the previous eight Kmet had 17. Cole Kmet will look to follow up back to back 20+ point games against Atlanta.
Rachaad White, RB, Tampa Bay Buccaneers
Rostered in 24.4% of ESPN Fantasy Football Leagues
A few weeks back, we wrote a ‘Plug N Play’ article about Rachaad White. Last week in Germany, White’s value skyrocketed.
The Rookie Running Back ran for 105 yards on 22 carries, both a career high. Also, Leonard Fournette suffered a minor hip injury, though the veteran back will most likely be available after the Bucs’ Week Eleven bye, the injury may prohibit Fournette from being the workhorse in the Bucs’ running game. Rachaad White should definitely be on your radar, and he could be the difference maker your team needs.
