Who is worth adding with just over halfway through the NFL season gone?


Peyton Mullen

After an exceptional Week 10 performance, Buccaneers RB Ronald Jones II has earned the starting job.

QB Brian Hoyer

With Jacoby Brissett leaving the Week 9’s game with an apparent MCL sprain, Brian Hoyer completed 17 of his passes for 168 yards and 3 touchdowns in about 3 quarters. It appears that he’ll at least start in Week 10’s game versus the Dolphins, while Brissett recovers. Hoyer should be a decent option if you are having bi-week trouble at the quarterback position.

RB Ronald Jones II

After about 9 weeks of splitting carries with Peyton Barber, Buccaneers head coach Bruce Arians has named Jones the presumed starter for the rest of the season because of his consistency and explosiveness. He rushed 18 times for 67 yards and 1 touchdown in Week 9’s game against the Seahawks, and looks to add onto that when the Buccaneers take on the Cardinals at home in Week 10.

WR Zach Pascal

Pascal stepped up big in Week 9 with T.Y. Hilton out with a hamstring injury, posting 76 yards on 5 catches and 1 touchdown. He’ll continue to see a lot of playing time, and looks to be the Colts lead receiver, while Hilton is out for roughly 3-4 weeks. Pascal and the Colts take on a tanking Dolphins team in Week 10.

WR Hunter Renfrow

The 5th-round slot receiver has been consistent throughout the season, but has now scored in his last 2 games. In Week 9 against the Lions, he had 54 yards and 1 touchdown while leading the team in targets (7) and receptions (6). Renfrow looks to extend this touchdown streak into Week 10 when the Raiders take on the Chargers at home.

TE Jacob Hollister

In Week 9 against the Buccaneers, Hollister got the majority of the playing time at tight end and showed why he did. He caught 4 passes for 37 yards and 2 touchdowns, with 1 of those touchdowns being the game-winner. Russell Wilson and the Seahawks like to find their tight ends in the redzone, so expect Hollister to get a few targets in the redzone in Week 10 against the 49ers.

Honorable Mention: RB Darrell Henderson Jr.

Starting in Week 6, Henderson has progressively been getting more touches. This includes out-touching Todd Gurley in Week 8, which is a sign that the Rams might be trying to protect Gurley and his knee. Henderson should continue to get touches, but most likely not redzone touches as Gurley will still get those. Henderson is worth looking at because of his talent. He could break off for a long touchdown if the opportunity presented itself.
