Will Fuller should already be owned but I guess some 10 team leagues don't have him.

What is everyones opinion on latavius murray? He has been semi decent with some pop. Think he is worth first priority out of these guys?


Gallman seems interesting though

I think murray will be the early down and goal-line back for minnesota while mckinnon is going to be the passing back. Gallman is interesting, but when was the last time the Giants actually had a decent back? Tiki Barber? Brandon Jacobs?

Looking like a stay away. Remember this exact situation happened at this time last year? AP went down and we had to choose from two -- McKinnon or Asiata. Neither really did much to be a consistent fantasy contributor. That's what I envision here.

I think it was 2014, but Asiata wasn't so bad, he had 9 touchdowns that year!

I think murray is better than asiata though.

Other interesting pickups are

Funchess - he's getting the volume, had two touchdowns today


Corey Davis - if he and Mariota get their hamstring situation figured out, he has potential to be the top receiver for the titans (10 targets in his first game)

Mike Williams - have not played all year, but Chargers need a big target..he certainly has the skill.

I was just going through the RBs. I don't just pick up QBs bc they're playing well. If you need a QB, Watson looks like he could be a good matchup streaming play. I don't think he'll be consistent though, since the rest of his offense is so inconsistent, and he's only done it against average or below defenses so far

Well, they do have Tyrell Williams at 6"4.

I do think Williams could be fantastic if he comes back healthy and has learned the offense.

Normally, I would agree with this, but Watson's floor is really high and getting Will Fuller back helps open up the field. I think he's gonna be top 10 going forward. We'll see. It's gonna be interesting.

re: Week 5 waiver pickups thread
Mike Williams won’t have an impact this season

As for these other names - funchess, Kamara, Corey davis, Ellington, Collins - talk about being reactive, these have been adds over the past few weeks

RE: Gallman - no Giant RB will have success behind that line. They already have a pass catchers in that role. Where do the points come from

Uhh he was returning this week. If you were a competent fantasy owner like myself you would have known he was worth a stash on your bench.

Kenny Golladay is a better player than Mike Williams. Williams should have been a 4th round pick.
