looks like Conner won't miss... was diagnosed with a contusion.  Now i'm worried about who i need to add... Jackson or Samuels.  I also lost Kirk, i'm looking at Ateman.

Samuels and it actually might be a high ankle sprain

1. Jeff Wilson Jr

Piled up touches and was productive doing it. Breida looks like he could go down with a serious injury or be shut down at any moment.

 

2. Justin Jackson

 

Way better rusher than Ekeler, but Gordon could return as early as next week. Still a great speculative add for week 14.

 

3. Dante Pettis

 

Has produced pretty much whenever given the chance this year. Should continue to see targets while the 49ers deal with injuries to other pass catchers.

 

4. Jaylen Samuels

 

Would be higher on the list but early reports are that Conner's injury is minor. He's got a great skill set, and given the chance to start he would most likely produce quality fantasy points.

 

5. Rashaad Penny

 

Pure stash and pray. He's looked pretty good the past month, but only seeing a handful of carries per game. Carson's not missing next week with a finger injury.

Congrats to everyone who made playoffs in their respective leagues, as final week of regular season in most formats ended. A lot of major transaction transpired in Week 13 that could potentially reshape fantasy playoffs. Here is a list of RBs with relatively low ownership (Yahoo) that could help you to fantasy glory.

 

RB

Jaylen Samuel (RB/TE) - Entirely correlated to the extent of James Conner's injury. Leg contusion (bruise) can be tricky, as the swelling may force him to sit out one week, multiple weeks, or no weeks at all. As of right now the update is that Conner's injury is not serious and he is "okay". However, I am a bit more on the skeptical side and think Conner will at least miss next week's game (if not more). If he misses a game or more, I would assume Samuel is the next man up (not Stevan Ridley), in an offense that has no problem giving one RB the lion-share of touches. Another selling point why I would use a high priority waiver on Samuel (barring Conner is out) over Wilson Jr. is that he gets the TE designation as well. This is a total game changer, as you have the ability to put a potential workhorse RB at the TE position. If Conner does play, Samuel really has no value, but is still worth an add due to a possibility of Conner re-injury. 

 

Jeff Wilson Jr. - Due to Breida aggravating his ankle pregame and during game, undrafted rookie Wilson Jr. got an opportunity to shine and did not disappoint. Posting 15/61 rushing and 8/73 receiving, Wilson Jr. made his case of having a role moving forward. I am suprised Breida is still being active week in and week out, as he has been gutting through multiple injuries all year. If Breida were to miss time moving forward, Wilson Jr. is an obvious must-add, as he should immediately become a workhorse RB2. However, I believe Wilson Jr. value is NOT entirely (unlike Samuel) correlated to Breida, because Wilson Jr. showed enough to make this a 50/50 or 60/40 split in terms of touches for this 49ers' backfield moving forward. 

 

Justin Jackson -  Jackson was severely out-touched (Ekeler's 18 touches to Jackson's 8), but showed much more burst then Ekeler. His value is entirely tied for however long Gordon is out, as he still week-to-week with a MCL injury and may play as early as next week. However, if Gordon remains out, Jackson should log in more work (mainly from rushes) than he saw vs. Steelers. More valuable in non-PPR than PPR, as Ekeler should still see majority of receiving downs. 

 

Rashad Penny - Posted 7/65/1TD rushing vs. 49ers. Penny should be in line for a few more touches moving forward. If Chris Carson misses next week game (not very likely) due to an injured finger, Penny should see bulk of the carries in a rush-first offense. 

 

Kenneth Dixon/Ty Montgomery - Baltimore has gone ultra run-heavy and conservative since inserting Jackson at QB, leading to every RB being potentially viable. Dixon played his first game since Week 1, and logged in a respectable 9 touches. Gus Edwards still got the bulk of carries, but was limping late game due to an ankle injury. Something to monitor as Edwards has seen a heavy rushing load (61 total carries past 3 games). Dixon would see bulk of rushes if something was to happen to Edwards moving forward. On the other hand, Ty Montgomery posted only 3/13 rushing, but a solid 5/42 receiving on 7 targets. He has clearly leapfrogged Buck Allen as the primary pass-catching RB. For PPR purposes only, Ty-Mont should be a fringe FLEX play, due to Jackson's tendency to throw conservative check-down passes a lot.

 

*Elite Workhorse RBs are the most valuable commodity in fantasy, so rostering backup RBs who would inevitably be in line for bulk of touches is a must at this point in season. These RBs include as Rod Smith, Malcolm Brown, Giovani Bernard, Chase Edmonds, etc.*

Just as I’ve seen his thread bumped up I was gonna mention josh Allen. Jets this week, Detroit next, might be a nice option for those streaming.

 

Dak is another potential WW add that has a pretty good playoff schedule.

Those making Wilson, Jr. their top add should be aware that while the volume might be there, he does not have the easiest playoff schedule ahead of him.  Just wanting to give that little detail as we try to separate people when ranking them or making adds.  Good luck to all in their playoffs!

Randall Cobb?

 

I'm thinking the Packers put up some major points against Atlanta.  Rodgers has a big game to get some revenge on McCarthy.  Thinking Cobb gets some of that.

Denver and Seattle are middle of the pack. But the thing is in that system out in San Fran the lead rb is just as viable a receiving threat as he is a runner.

Agreed. Have no idea why people still think Denver and Seattle are such stout defenses any longer. They aren’t.

Since week 7 Denver has not had an individual run for 100+ and has not allowed a rushing TD to RBs in that span.  During that time they went against the likes of D. Johnson, Hunt, Mixon, Gordon, L. Miller, and Conner. Also stop selectively ignoring vs chicago in championship week.  But to each their own perceive it how you may...

I stashed both defenses for the playoffs but I'm personally starting Titans for my match up this week.  O/U vs jags is super low (last saw it at 37.5), they're favored at -4, game is @TEN and it's a Thursday night game.  Broncos lost Chris Harris so that's a blow against them too. 

 

Those two, to me, are both great adds if available down the stretch but in a lot of leagues they were both added last week.

I did the same, stashed them both weeks ago for this reason. I only need either one for this week since I have CHI D. I’m leaning TEN too. They’re at home and I like D’s at home. DEN is on the road.

Jags vs Mark Sanchez next week. They killed me vs the Bills but Josh Allen actually looks good.

I'm looking for a defense and wonder if NYG is a good pickup considering the Redskins have a new quarterback after McCoy went down.  I know the NYG DEF is on the bottom half of all DEF but just thinking that a new QB would not be in much sync with the offense.  Thoughts?
