Josh Gordon, WR, CLE. In his first game in almost three years, Gordon was everywhere for Cleveland, showing little rust. Quarterback DeShone Kizer knew who was the top athlete in the field, giving him 11 goals on the day. Although Gordon only won four of them, that can be attributed to Kizer's inaccuracy and the fact that this was their first game together. Hope that his relationship in the field grows and that Gordon stands out immediately as the former first goal, Corey Coleman, was retained with a surprising zero catch in only four goals. It is obvious what the trend of these receivers is, and although the confrontations are not good after the inclination of this week with the Packers, talent and volume will not be a problem.
Blake Bortles, QB, JAC. Bortles has two consecutive games of more than 20 points in the standard ESPN leagues, and with teams focusing on running back Leonard Fournette after his start to the season, Bortles has to pull for the Jaguars to win. The Jags are ready to win now and should get their quarterback as reliable as possible in the playoffs, leading to a possible increase in the use of the airside of things. Jacksonville faces three teams that are very vulnerable to pbading fantasy playoff attacks in Seattle, Houston and San Francisco, the last two of which are among the last three in the NFL in fantasy points allowed to quarterbacks. opposites.
Marquise Goodwin, WR, SF. See what happens when you have a good quarterback in the building? Goodwin caught all eight of his goals for 99 yards against a solid Bears defense and appeared to be on the same page with Jimmy Garoppolo from start to finish. This is an extremely talented and exciting duo, and they should feel more comfortable with each other every week. Two very tasty confrontations on the horizon in Houston and Tennessee should allow these two to present some good stealth numbers, and although a pairing of the 16 Women's Jags slows things down if you get to the championship of your leagues, at least they will. get there.

Stefon Diggs, WR, MIN. The emergence of Case Keenum in Minnesota makes this an amazing choice, but the goals and points simply do not go in the Diggs direction. This season with Keenum and Diggs on the field, Diggs averaged just over four receptions and 63.7 yards and three total touchdowns, most of which came in their first game together in Week 3 when Diggs had a statistical line of 8- 173-2. There is no doubt that Keenum tends to go with his guts-Thielen (see what I did there?) When he seeks to get the ball to the field, since Thielen averages six receptions and 85.5 yards per game and three total touchdowns with Keenum under center . With Diggs' elite talent, his numbers should be much higher to reach draft value, since he was probably drafted in the first five rounds of his draft.
Drew Brees, QB, NO. New Orleans found something special in Alvin Kamara and teamed up with Mark Ingram, they have a great impact. Brees is not fighting in any way with 17 touchdowns to just five interceptions this season, but with the two-headed monster in the backfield, Sean Payton and the Saints have drastically changed their game plan this year and are waging the running game. Brees is no longer the 5,000-yard pbader and gunman he was in past years on this offense, and he does not have to be. This is great for the Saints and, frankly, for Brees himself, since he does not have to exhaust himself late in his career. Two confrontations against the Falcons and a game at home against the Jets certainly allow Brees to light them by air to end the season. However, the intention to do that probably will not be there.
Jordan Howard, RB, CHI. Remember when Charlie received the golden ticket to go to the chocolate factory and had the time of his life? Howard had the golden ticket this week against San Francisco and, judging by his performance, lost the ticket or is allergic to chocolate. San Francisco is the only worst NFL team in fantasy points handed out to runners, and Howard is the lead runner for Chicago. What can go wrong? Well, almost everything went wrong here, since Howard illuminated the statistics sheet with his 38 yards on 13 carries and a reception … for negative: five yards. Yes, it was that kind of game for Chicago, since they had an amazing total of 36 plays in total against 73 from San Francisco! Future matches look pretty good with Cincinnati, Detroit and Cleveland on their plate, but with Chicago's ineptitude in the offense and the inability to do anything against the 49ers, it's very hard to believe we can expect much from Howard to finish 2017  Fantasy Football Trade Candidates: Neutral in Actions
Stephen Anderson, TE, HOU. In such a wild year for tight ends, we really have to dig deep, as with Ricky Seals-Jones, to find crossbeams that can make an impact in the final stretch. With an injury to starter C. J. Fiedorowicz, Anderson intervened and caught five pbades for 79 and a touchdown in a whopping 12 goals, second only to DeAndre Hopkins. This is definitely an aviator here, but with this shared goal, it could be a great option if you are looking for help in the tight end position. There is reason to believe that he could remain the tight end the rest of the season, since Fiedorowicz already suffered his third concussion of the season, possibly forcing him to stay out of the rest of the season.
Kenyan Drake, RB, MIA. When Damien Williams suffered a serious shoulder injury in Week 12, he opened the door for Drake to take a clear lead role in Week 13. Aligning with a Broncos defense that has battled runners in the second half of the season, Drake crossed to 120 yards and a touchdown on 23 carries. With Williams hoping to miss a couple of weeks at least, Drake should continue to see a similar workload in the future. Miami stays home this week to face the Patriots before going to Buffalo and Kansas City in weeks 15 and 16, so there are many points that can be obtained from the Alabama product.
