New York Jets running back Bilal Powell and Dallas Cowboys running back Alfred Morris became two of the top fantasy pickups of the week with Matt Forte and Ezekiel Elliott out for Week 10.
Many fantasy owners are still searching to find a potential flex, WR3, or RB2 ahead of Sunday’s games, and Fourth & Goal has two plug and play options that remain less than 60 percent owned in most fantasy leagues.
Miami Dolphins RB Kenyan Drake
Drake racked up 104 yards on 15 touches (9 rush, 6 receptions) against the Oakland Raiders in Week 9 but remains less than 58 percent owned in fantasy leagues. The Dolphins second-year running back should continue to see an increased workload in the coming weeks and has the ability to be an RB2 down the stretch of this season.
The Dolphins have officially listed running back Damien Williams (illness) as questionable for Monday’s game against the Carolina Panthers, but even if he suits up, Drake should still remain a viable flex/RB2 option. The Panthers have held opposing running back to the third fewest fantasy points this season, but Drake’s touches should allow him the opportunity to put a solid stat line in Week 10.
Morris and Powell are safer fantasy bets on Sunday given the matchups, but that doesn’t mean Drake doesn’t have upside potential on Monday Night Football.
New York Jets WR Jermaine Kearse
Robby Anderson is surely the top fantasy play out of New York’s receiving corps, but that doesn’t mean Kearse can be a serviceable WR3/flex option in Week 10. The six-year veteran receiver has caught 31 passes for 380 yards and has scored four touchdowns in his first season with Gang Green and is Josh McCown’s second favorite target.
Kearse remains less than 49 percent owned in fantasy leagues despite a favorable matchup against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers this Sunday. Tampa Bay’s defense has given up the third most fantasy points to wide receivers this season.
