Kenny Stills is gaining fantasy relevance, finally! I’ve been saying this for a couple of weeks: he’s a great fit in Sean Payton’s offense and the chemistry with Drew Brees is evident, even if he’s not heavily targeted. Over the last four games he scored four touchdowns and averages almost 76 receiving yards per game. Despite a bad performance against the Jets (well, nobody had a good game in week 9) he scored 12.40, 25.30 and 13.50 fantasy points in the other three games. Is this enough? This week the matchup isn’t great but he can be a valuable Flex option.
If you don’t want to flex a wide receiver…Pierre Thomas is here to help you! Since his week 5 breakout performance against the Bears he has been consistent, averaging 11.8 fantasy points per game. 49ers defense is stout against the run but this year they are allowing 105.1 rushing yards per game and have allowed eight scores to running backs (same number as the Saints defense).
After the scary concussion against the Jets, Darren Sproles came back like nothing happened and scored 18.80 fantasy points against the Cowboys. Welcome back! He has RB2 value, don’t leave him on the bench.
