2. Taysom Hill, Saints — Averaged 11 carries per sport in three begins ahead of being slapped on Fresh Orleans’ COVID list. Right here is where I’d tainted Hill if he clears protocols.

3. Tua Tagovailoa, Dolphins — Tagovailoa’s 75% completion fee across his final five begins gifts him a threat-averse ground since he refuses to plot shut possibilities deep.

4. Tyler Huntley, Ravens — Right here is where I’d prioritize Huntley if he clears COVID protocols and Lamar Jackson (ankle) is all all over again dominated out.

5. Derrick Gore, Chiefs – Averaged 5.5 carries in the wait on of Darrel Williams (rostered in 61% of Yahoo leagues) in four games without Clyde Edwards-Helaire (collarbone) earlier this yr.

7. Braxton Berrios, Jets – Team-excessive 27.2% target portion sans Jamison Crowder (calf) on Sunday.

8. Tyler Johnson, Buccaneers – Ran the third-most routes among Tampa Bay’s receivers in situation of Chris Godwin (torn ACL) but did not list a single target.

1. Chicago Bears – Rating you watched Mike Glennon play football?
