With four weeks in the books, frustration is mounting for many in Fantasyland. For those with deep benches, now is the time to feast on the meek. What underachieving commodities should you pitch a lowball offer for? Here are the Noise’s top-three:
Roddy White, Atl, WR – Severely limited by a nagging high-ankle sprain, White has stumbled out of the gate catching just 10 passes for 84 yards and zero touchdowns. But after playing on 74-of-76 snaps last Sunday, he’s slowly getting back to full-strength. With a bye week on the horizon (Week 6), he’s undeniably the finest buy-low wideout on the market. A top-20 second-half is in the offing.
Ray Rice, Bal, RB – The combination of a hip pointer, Bernard Pierce’s expanded role and a terrible offensive line have torched the widely perceived RB1’s fantasy value. Still, with a string of favorable matchups upcoming (at Mia, GB, at Pit) and on pace for nearly 60 receptions, Rice should resolve his issues in short order.
David Wilson, NYG, RB – Tabbed the biggest breakout candidate of 2013 just a month ago, Wilson has bombed. Fumbling/blitz pick-up issues matched with New York’s deplorable run-blocking have stunted his statistical growth. However, with a very friendly matchup against Philly this week, it’s likely this is your last chance to invest at the ground floor. Pounce.
