With the fantasy playoffs looming, pick-ups are rare and risky. The next couple of weeks separate the good from the great fantasy owners. At this point in the season, there weren’t too many new names on the waiver wire worth looking at. But, as we’ve mentioned in the past, the Browns running backs are a hot commodity.
It’s only right to mention Jonas Gray. That guy was an absolute beast on Sunday night, running all over the Colts defense for 201 yards and four touchdowns. Where was this guy a few weeks ago? Sitting on the bench. Opportunity, opportunity, opportunity.
Going back to Cleveland, Josh Gordon is back. For those of you who stashed him all season (myself included), now is the time to show it’s worth the roster spot. Against a porous Atlanta defense, look out for “Flash” Gordon to have a monster return to the 2014 NFL season.
Be mindful of the tough match-ups this week in the NFL, as many of them may determine who you start and sit in this highly important week of fantasy football.
