Dolphins’ WR Preston Williams has been consistently producing this season. Is he worth an add?

QB Ryan Tannehill

After Marcus Mariota was sent to the bench by the Titans in Week 6, Ryan Tannehill started Week 7 and led them to a home victory over the Chargers, completing 79% of his passes for 312 yards, 2 touchdowns, and 1 interception. Tannehill seems to fit the Titans offense better than Mariota, so expect him to get another start in Week 8 when the Titans host the league’s worst secondary, Buccaneers.

RB Ty Johnson

With Kerryon Johnson questionable to play Week 8 because of a right knee injury, Ty Johnson is next in line and will likely get the bulk of the load. He struggled as a runner last week against the Vikings, but that isn’t too surprising because the Vikings have a stout run defense. Ty Johnson and the Lions will have a much more favorable matchup when they host the Giants this week.

WR Olabisi Johnson

Olabisi Johnson stepped up in Week 7 at the Lions, with Adam Thielen leaving the game with a hamstring injury, posting 4 catches for 40 yards and a touchdown. With Thielen doubtful to play this week because of a Thursday night game, Johnson and Diggs should be the two receiving threats for Kirk Cousins when the Vikings take on a bad Redskins defense at home.

WR Kenny Stills

Will Fuller was one of Deshaun Watson’s favorite deep targets, but with his injury that will take him out of several upcoming games, expect Kenny Stills to fill that void. Watson found Stills for multiple 40+ yard completions last week against the Colts, finishing the game with 4 catches for 105 yards. The Texans have a much easier matchup in Week 8 when they host the Raiders at home.

TE Chris Herndon

Coming off a 4 game suspension and hamstring injury, Chris Herndon is finally expected to return this week. Fantasy football analysts have high expectations Herndon going into his second year in the league. Nonetheless, he gives Darnold and the Jets another option on offense. Herndon and the Jets take on the Jaguars on the road who have an average secondary with Jalen Ramsey being traded.

Honorable Mention: WR Preston Williams

Preston Williams is in a tough boat. He’s on the worst team in the NFL and they keep rotating at the QB position, going from Fitzpatrick to Rosen and vice versa. However, he leads the Dolphins in both receiving yards, with 314, targets, with 44, and receptions, with 23. He’s a rookie so his catch rate is not fantastic, but the Dolphins seem to lean on him and Devante Parker for their offense. Williams and the Dolphins play at the Steelers this week, who have a mediocre secondary.
