Stream Bucs’ Ryan Fitzpatrick, Add Patriots’ Rex Burkhead

Inside Injuries November 7, 2017 10:03PM EST

Ryan Fitzpatrick QB, TB

Fitzpatrick will start for the Buccaneers for the “few weeks” that they hold Jameis Winston out, as Winston continues to struggle with an injured throwing shoulder. It’s unclear how long he will be out, but Winston’s Optimal Recovery Time is around 3-4 weeks according to Inside Injuries’ analytics.

That means that Fitzpatrick is just a streaming option, but he shouldn’t be used for much more than that at this point anyway. This week, Fitzpatrick gets a Jets defense that played well last Thursday night but is still giving up pretty big numbers through the air. Fitz won’t have Mike Evans, but the rest of the talent on this offense, including Desean Jackson, Cameron Brate, O.J. Howard and Chris Godwin (more on him later), should provide plenty of opportunities for him to put up a solid Fantasy week. If you’re looking for a bye week streamer, Fitz is a solid option and he’s readily available.

Danny Woodhead RB, BAL

Woodhead is eligible to return from injured reserve in Week 11 after the Ravens’ bye, but it remains unclear whether he will be able. Woodhead suffered a severe hamstring injury in Week 1 and hasn’t played since, but he did return to practice last week. Physically, he is still overcoming some hurdles, as he is a High Injury Risk with a Poor Health Performance Factor according to Inside Injuries, so it wouldn’t be a shock if we didn’t see him until Week 12 or 13.

When he does return, however, Woodhead should be in the RB2 mix. He should take back his old workload, which will be similar to Buck Allen’s current role. Considering that Woodhead is a more accomplished pass-catcher, he should outperform the pace Allen has put up down the stretch. While the injury (and injury history) is a concern, adding Woodhead now is the play because of the potential return, whether it comes starting in Week 11 or later.

Rex Burkhead RB, NE

Burkhead missed four weeks after suffering a rib injury in Week 2, but he has shown steady improvement since returning. Coming off a bye, Burkhead might be in the perfect position to break out and claim a consistent role in the Patriots backfield (if such a thing exists). He out-touched and out-snapped James White in Week 8, and we will find out whether that is an aberration soon. He’s worth a stash now to at least find out what his role will be.

Corey Coleman WR, CLE

Coleman is another player eligible to return Week 11, and he seems like a lock to do so. The second-year receiver broke his hand in Week 2 and is currently an Elevated Injury Risk according to Inside Injuries. He is certainly progressing and should be close to full speed next week after getting some extended practice time in. Coleman has some big play ability and upside that he hasn’t been able to realize in his young career, mostly due to injury. The Browns’ offense isn’t a great situation for him, but the lack of other receiving options should funnel targets his way. His talent plus the opportunity is enough to bet on.

Chris Godwin WR, TB

Godwin isn’t a long-term option for this season because of the presence of Mike Evans and Desean Jackson ahead of him on the depth chart, but he is an interesting streamer this week with Evans sidelined due to a suspension. Godwin is an explosive athlete and one of the better receiver prospects in the 2017 draft. The absence of Jameis Winston due to the shoulder injury isn’t ideal, but Ryan Fitzpatrick is more than capable of getting the ball to Godwin to make some plays. Godwin is worth a flier for Week 10.

C.J. Fiedorowicz TE, HOU

Fiedorowicz suffered a concussion in Week 2 and was placed on IR, earning him a High Injury Risk tag from Inside Injuries. The early week reports out of Houston, however, are that there’s a good chance he plays in Week 10. If he does indeed suit up, look for Fiedorowicz to put up solid, if not super exciting, numbers with Tom Savage. Savage isn’t going to make all the plays downfield that Deshaun Watson did, but he will work the safer throws underneath to Fiedorowicz, who caught four passes for 46 yards in Week 1 from Savage before leaving early with an injury. It’s very possible that Fiedorowicz puts up fringe TE1 numbers playing with Savage the rest of the way.
