See if these guys are available…
Jared Goff, DET- QB
Barely making it into this section at 50% owned, Jared Goff has seen a significant uptick in passing plays, going from 26 passing attempts per game Weeks 9-11 up to an average of 39 attempts in the last two games. This might continue as the Lions play from behind against potentially both the Jets and Vikings, followed by an offense-friendly fantasy playoff schedule against the Panthers and Bears. After seeing two weeks of solid numbers, playoff teams in need of a quarterback could have some stability with Goff to end the season.
Zonovan “Bam” Knight, NYJ- RB
Bam Knight has looked really solid as the next man up for the Jets’ RB core. Being used frequently in passing and goal-line situations, Knight has put up decent numbers for the last two weeks. Especially with all of the injuries this past week, Knight is a priority add for Week 14
Darius Slayton, NYG- WR
Slayton has been a very solid, overlooked receiver during the season so far, and nothing too special about this week, right? Well, no. Darius Slayton had a good performance, but what you can’t see is that he almost had a game-winning catch deep down the field. That play probably would have added around 6 points to his total. Slayton has been the only Giants receiver consistently on the field, so he’s worth the roster spot.
