Rams’ Sammy Watkins Is Startable Again, Saints’ Alvin Kamara Is A Beast

Bobby McMann December 2, 2017 1:15AM EDT
In many Fantasy Football leagues, this is the last regular season game. Your trade deadline has likely passed, and the waiver wire is barren unless you want to take a shot at Ricky Seals-Jones. All your research and hard work is coming down to the next four weeks of action. Good luck and see you in the playoffs!

Ready Or Not by the Fugees

What were whispers for Patrick Mahomes II a few weeks ago are now turning to angry shouting. Alex Smith has played like, well, Alex Smith over the past four games. We know what he is, and that the first half of the season was really an anomaly. After not throwing an INT in his first eight games, he has thrown four in his last three. He has more than one score in just two of his last six games. The Chiefs’ offense looked like a powerhouse early on and Smith was an MVP candidate. Now they are calling for him to lose his job to Mahomes. Tyreek Hill and Kareem Hunt are feeling the effects. Smith has great matchups against the Jets and Raiders coming up, but he’s still just a borderline QB1. I would not want to roll into the Fantasy playoffs depending on him.

One player that has remained largely unaffected by the inconsistent QB play is Travis Kelce. He remains one of the best, if not the best TE play on a weekly basis. Continue to start Kelce with confidence. In dynasty rankings, he may have officially unseated Gronk as the top TE, although he does have competition from another up and comer (see below).

Coming Out Strong by Future featuring The Weeknd

Carson Wentz was expected by many to take a step forward this year, but he triple-jumped past those expectations in September. He is a no-brainer MVP candidate, sporting a 28:5 TD to INT ratio while leading the Eagles to a 10-1 record. He has put up multiple TDs in seven consecutive games and nine of 11 overall. Wentz has been consistent and efficient all season long. After two decently tough matchups in Seattle and LA (Rams), the Eagles take on the weak Giants and Raiders secondaries in Weeks 15 and 16. Wentz is obviously locked in as a QB1 and his dynasty value is soaring as a legitimate foundation player.

A big part of Wentz’ success this year has been his connection with Zach Ertz. After not scoring more than four TDs in a season, Ertz already has seven through 10 games this year. He is averaging a robust eight targets per game and is well on his way to a third straight 800-plus yard season. He’s making a case to be included with Kelce and Gronk in the elite class of TE.

Too Fast Too Furious by Ludacris

We knew Alvin Kamara was good early in the season, but this is getting ridiculous. Despite never touching the ball more than 17 times in a game, he has established himself as an every- week starter and one of the highest ceiling players at the position. His 131 touches on the season have accounted for nearly 1,100 yards and nine scores. An electric talent that makes splash plays seemingly every time he touches the ball, Kamara is an excellent fit in New Orleans alongside fellow Fantasy stud Mark Ingram. Yes, the production level is not sustainable, but he is very much for real in a Jamaal Charles-like way.

A Matter Of Trust by Billy Joel

You never want to rely on the Patriots’ backfield given usage concerns and game-planning. Rex Burkhead has at least nine touches in four straight games, giving him flex appeal moving forward. He is now neck and neck with Dion Lewis, with both players putting Super Bowl hero James White in the rearview (for now). Mike Gillislee hasn’t seen the field since October, so as long as Burkhead can hold onto the ball and keep producing, he is likely to remain a key player in the offensive attack.

Back In The Game by Wu Tang Clan

Josh Gordon has had his fair share of issues off the field due to substance abuse and it has caused him to be away from the game for three years. This Sunday, he appears ready to make his return to the NFL and at just 26 years old, it will be interesting to see what he has in store. He has played in 35 games during his career, but everyone is still hanging onto hopes and dreams of 2013. He’s not a bad flier in redraft formats just in case Flash is back with a vengeance, but dynasty owners will want to consider trading him if he strings together a strong finish to 2017. Most importantly, there is hope that Gordon has finally gotten his life together.

Torn by Natalie Imbruglia

When Sammy Watkins was traded to the Rams during the offseason, it was looking like a Fantasy downgrade because of the QB situation and other issues in LA. Well, Jared Goff is running the City of Angels like a young Snoop Dogg was back in the early 90s and the Rams have one of the best offenses in the game. Given that, it is a mild surprise that Watkins has been mostly inconsistent and a Fantasy disappointment. Injuries have been holding him back from reaching his true potential and could’ve been the reason the Bills shipped him out. It is an injury to Robert Woods, though, that is opening up the door for Watkins to again be Fantasy-relevant. He received a season-high nine targets last week against a tough Saints secondary, putting up a 4-82-1 line. He’s a WR3 play this week, thanks to a tough matchup against Patrick Peterson and the Cardinals. The bottom line is that while Woods remains sidelined, the better I feel about giving Watkins a starting nod.
