It looked like Tannehill and Wallace found some chemistry in week 2 when Wallace scored 17.50 fantasy points (115 yds, 1 TD) but a week later against the Falcons he scored a meager 2.20 points. This should be a good matchup, even though Rob Ryan’s unit has looked pretty solid so far, since the Saints are ranked 27th in the league against opposing receivers with 16.60 fantasy points allowed per game, per Nfl.com.
Bye weeks are coming and TE Charles Clay could be a good add this week: not only he’s the No. 1 tight end in Miami but he could also have his number called for some goal line work, where he is used as the power back. Plus, he’s one of Tannehill’s favourite targets.
As far as running backs, coach Philbin stated that until one of the two (D. Thomas and L.Miller) steps up they will keep splitting carries and that is no good news for fantasy owners: Miller has the potentiality to be a RB2, but he isn’t yet. He’s still a very good flex options though.
Last week Lance Moore left the game with a hand injury and he hasn’t practiced this week so he may be ruled out for the Dolphins’ game – and even if active, I don’t think he will see many targets. So if you are down-and-out at the wide receiver spot you might wanna try Kenny Stills: even if he had two quite weeks after a good performance in week 1 (a.k.a. 8.6 fantasy points) he has the chance to bounce back this week. Be careful though because we know Brees loves to spread the ball around and consequently Stills will not see a huge amount of target: on the bright side, he has an excellent skill set and can turn each catch into big gains.
Jimmy Graham has averaged 24,65 fantasy points in the last two games. He went up against Patrick Peterson last week and scored. I honestly don’t know what else to say. I just hope you drafted him because one thing is for sure: he isn’t gonna stop.
Alongside with Lance Moore, RB Mark Ingram hasn’t practiced this week. Both Darren Sproles and Pierre Thomas will benefit from that (sorry, Mark) and they are both excellent flex options this week. We might also see some Khiry Robinson this week after the nice 38 rush yards he collected last week late in the game. Keep an eye on him.
