Fantasy Football: Add

  1. Chase Edmonds, RB, Cardinals
    I loved Chase Edmonds as a fantasy sleeper heading into this year because I didn't trust Kenyan Drake to handle a full workload. Drake got injured Sunday night, so Edmonds will have his chance going forward. (Update: Drake will be out for several weeks, so Edmonds is now atop the list.)

  2. JaMycal Hasty, RB, 49ers
    With Jeff Wilson and Raheem Mostert hurt, JaMycal Hasty must be added in fantasy. Hasty looked good against the Patriots, rushing for 57 yards on nine carries. He played ahead of Jerick McKinnon, who was nowhere to be found.

  3. Brandon Aiyuk, WR, 49ers
    Brandon Aiyuk seems to be getting better every week. The rookie is worth adding after his six-catch, 115-yard game against the Patriots' stellar secondary.

  4. Marquez Callaway, WR, Chargers
    Michael Thomas will probably be out in Week 8, so Marquez Callaway is worth a short-term pick-up. He had eight receptions for 75 yards and had a touchdown called back by penalty. Callaway got hurt at the end of the game, so let's make sure he's OK.

  5. Gus Edwards, RB, Ravens
    Gus Edwards should be added just in case Mark Ingram is out for a while with an injury he suffered in Week 6. J.K. Dobbins should be added as well, but he's owned in 56 percent of ESPN leagues.

  6. Rashard Higgins, WR, Browns
    I've moved Rashard Higgins from ignore to add in the wake of the Odell Beckham news. I'm still not very high on Higgins, but he can be rostered with Beckham done for the season.

Fantasy Football: Buy Low

Ezekiel Elliott, RB, Cowboys
Ezekiel Elliott owners may be frustrated, allowing you to get him cheaply.

Josh Jacobs, RB, Raiders
Josh Jacobs rushed for 17 yards on 10 carries against Tampa, but the Buccaneers have the top run defense in the NFL.

JuJu Smith-Schuster, WR, Steelers
Chase Claypool and Diontae Johnson are making all the plays. JuJu Smith-Schuster can be bought at his lowest.

Fantasy Football: Sell High

Brandin Cooks, WR, Texans
Brandin Cooks just had some monster games recently, but I don't think that'll happen very frequently going forward.

Mike Davis, RB, Panthers
Mike Davis has been amazing, but Christian McCaffrey is returning soon.

Todd Gurley, RB, Falcons
Todd Gurley just scored several touchdowns. Trade him now before he breaks down.

Ronald Jones, RB, Buccaneers
Ronald Jones will see his touches disappear when Leonard Fournette returns from injury.

Christian Kirk, WR, Cardinals
Christian Kirk has caught several touchdowns the past two weeks. Now is a good time to sell high.

James Robinson, RB, Jaguars
James Robinson has been doing well as a rookie, but his production has dipped a bit lately.

Fantasy Football: Ignore

Scotty Miller, WR, Buccaneers
Scotty Miller caught six passes for 109 yards and a touchdown against the Raiders, but Antonio Brown will take his spot soon.

Demarcus Robinson, WR, Chiefs
I'm so sick of trying to determine whether Demarcus Robinson or Mecole Hardman will be more productive. If you want to try, good luck.

Fantasy Football: Drop

Cam Akers, RB, Rams
Facebook friend Luke T. asked if Cam Akers is droppable. He is, but it's not the worst idea to hold on to him just in case, only if you have the roster space.

Odell Beckham Jr., WR, Browns
Out for the year with a torn ACL.

Julian Edelman, WR, Patriots
I think my fourth cousin, Julian Edelman misses Tom Brady. He's not catching any passes from Cam Newton.

Mark Ingram, RB, Ravens
There are too many mouths to feed. You can let go of Mark Ingram if you need the roster space. Ingram just got hurt anyway.

Cam Newton, QB, Patriots
If Cam Newton were a horse, he'd be off to the glue factory by now. He's done.
