Adam Thielen, WR, Minnesota Vikings (4.6 percent). The Vikings have found their No. 1 receiver in Stefon Diggs, but Thielen has been in the mix over the past six games, logging three touchdowns and a 127-yard effort during that stretch. In a deeper PPR league, he can be used as a flex option.
Vance McDonald, TE, San Francisco 49ers (1.7 percent). If you are Adrian Clayborn Womens Jersey a Zach Miller owner (or a Gronk owner, should he miss Week 12), McDonald is on the tight end radar. He has at least 50 receiving yards or a touchdown in three straight games, and Kaepernick has kept up his fantasy-steady quarterback play of late.
Brandon LaFell, WR, Cincinnati Bengals (11.0 percent). It’s a close call between Boyd and LaFell for the Bengals pass-catcher I’d be most interested in adding. While LaFell isn’t an overwhelming talent, he’s bound to see steady work going forward. He has averaged 5.5 targets per game this season, but it would not be a surprise to see him average eight per game for the rest of the season. He too can be added in 12-team-or-larger leagues.
Dion Lewis, RB, New England Patriots (45.1 percent). It came in a relatively small dose (22 snaps), but Lewis showed flashes of why he was one of the unique running backs in football before his season-ending injury in 2015. Lewis had five rushes for 23 yards and three catches for 26 yards, playing two fewer snaps than fellow backfield mate James White. Lewis is the Patriots’ best combo back in terms of rushing and receiving and should be added in all leagues.
Mike Gillislee, RB, Buffalo Bills (26.3 percent). The Bills announced on Sunday that LeSean McCoy is set to undergo a procedure on his thumb but could play in Week 12. That’s good news, but Gillislee is a must-add for any McCoy owners as an insurance policy. He’s also a smart add for anyone whose running back depth is in need of work, as he’d be a usable piece in Week 12 if McCoy is unable to play.
DeVante Parker, WR, Miami Dolphins (47.9 percent). The Dolphins are surging, and Parker was a key part of their 2-0 swing through California in Weeks 10 and 11. He has 13 catches on 18 targets over the past two weeks, including a touchdown and a 103-yard effort. A Alex Mack Womens Jersey first-round pick in 2015, Parker has excellent size and a promising ceiling. He should be added in any-size leagues but isn’t yet a sure-fire starter in 10-team leagues. But on ability alone he’s worth the speculative add and can be started in deeper leagues.
