Fable Soccer Waiver Cord, Week eight: Bye Week Blues


Six groups are out this week on a bye, which coupled with accidents, way there are going to be various groups scrambling for starters. There aren’t any massive performs this week, however there are a few damage (and suspension–waves at Marshawn) fill-ins and matchup performs to show to if you wish to have a starter.

Listed here are the suggestions for all gamers owned in not up to 70% of CBS leagues.


Moderate Leagues: Trevor Siemian (forty five%) is coming off a tricky efficiency on Sunday, however will get the Kansas Town Chiefs’ suffering protection this week. Derek Carr were given smartly remaining week and Siemian turns into a low-finish starter with all of the bye weeks.

Deep Leagues: Case Keenum (19%) is an emergency beginning choice towards the Browns, and turns into a good higher play if we discover out that Stefon Diggs is again.

Josh McCown (23%) vs ATL is your different deep beginning dive in line with matchup.


Jalen Richard (20%) and DeAndre Washington (6%) get to pick out up the slack with Marshawn Lynch suspended. Be expecting a -headed platoon. Washington is much more likely to get the purpose line consists of at the same time as Richard is a quite higher play in PPR leagues, so act consequently. Each are flex choices that are meant to fall within the RB25 to 36 vary this week.

Matt Strong point (sixty three%) is a matchup get started in shallow leagues if to be had, going towards Atlanta.

Wendell Smallwood (fifty four%) were given nearly all of the early touches on Monday after getting back from damage and appears to be a PPR play as a flex going ahead.

Dion Lewis (fifty two%) keeps to remove snaps from Mike Gillislee and appears to be the first and 2d down again to possess in this day and age.



Kenny Stills (29%) is a most sensible 30 get started this week if DeVante Parker continues to be out, and with the quick week top into Thursday night time, Miami would possibly play it protected. Stills has scored three touchdowns during the last weeks in Parker’s absence. Even though Parker is again Stills will probably be a conceivable beginning choice in a depleted week.

Josh Doctson (31%) seems to have passed Terrelle Pryor within the Washington pecking order at extensive receiver. He didn’t produce massive numbers however he’s value an upload to peer if that position expands, and the numbers include it.

Kenny Golladay (26%) has been out given that week four with a hamstring damage, however is predicted to play, and can be a beneficiary with Tate out.

Marquise Goodwin (five%) is still a growth/bust choice, however one that may be getting a number of possibilities. He’s within the most sensible 30 in scoring during the last 3 weeks. (I’ve used his rating three times as a flex in a very best-ball league).

Bennie Fowler (18%) stuck all five passes thrown his approach ultimate week however the common struggles of the Broncos offense avoided him from making a large have an effect on. He will get a great matchup this week and you’ll be able to be expecting the Broncos to assault the cornerbacks now not named Marcus Peters.

Robby Anderson (23%) vs ATL is still, as all the time, a fallback choice in deep leagues.



Tyler Kroft (32%) during the last three video games has 14 catches, 129 yards and three TDs and we all know Tyler Eifert is out for the yr. In the event you don’t have some of the most sensible eight tight ends you will have to be including him.

Zach Miller (forty nine%).

Nick O’Leary (four%) of the Expenses is still a fill-in choice in case of emergency.
