In these bye-heavy weeks, there is no worse feeling than making a poor decision. One false move, and 20 precious fantasy points are left on your bench. It’s gut-wrenching. To guide you safely through the bye-week blues, here are three under-started commodities who demand your immediate attention:
Terrelle Pryor, Oak, QB – The Man in Black could “Hurt” San Diego in Sunday’s late-night delight no reasonable person will see on the East Coast. The Chargers secondary, the most generous in fantasy, has given up 8.4 yards per attempt, 329.2 passing yards per game and eight passing TDs to signal callers this year. Now healthy and more accurate than in years past, the multidimensional playmaker is poised for at least top-10 numbers in Week 5.
Eddie Lacy, GB, RB – It’s completely asinine Lacy, a full-go in practice this week and in line for a sizable workload, is currently started in under half of Yahoo leagues. Green Bay’s Week 5 opponent, Detroit, has surrendered 5.0 yards per carry and the third-most fantasy points to RBs on the young year. Roughly 100 yards and a TD are well within reach for the rookie. Get crazy with the Cheez Whiz.
Jeremy Kerley, NYJ, WR – Likely down Santonio Holmes and Stephen Hill, Kerley stands to benefit from increased playing time. A quality route-runner who’s elusive underneath, he should attract at least 8-10 targets from Geno Smith in a possible come-from-behind contest Monday night in Atlanta. Keep in mind, the Falcons have allowed the fourth-most fantasy points to WRs on the year. Approximately 6-8 receptions for 80-plus yards are attainable for the minimally started Jet.
