Jamison Crowder WAS – BUY LOW
Crowder had his second highest yardage total of the season this Sunday, posting 4 catches for 76 yards after missing Week 9 with a hamstring injury. However, Crowder could’ve had a much bigger game, as he posted 5 drops, including at least one that would’ve been a touchdown. He is normally very sure-handed, so don’t expect that to be the norm moving forward. Crowder got 11 targets Sunday, and 13 in the last game he had played previously against Dallas in Week 8. He looks to be getting healthier from the hamstring issue that held him out in Week 9 and was likely part of the reason for his early season struggles. The arrow is pointing up on Crowder for the rest of the season.
Dion Lewis NE – SELL HIGH
Lewis posted two touchdowns on Sunday night in the Patriots’ smack down of the Broncos in Denver, including one on a kickoff return. He also had double digit carries in each of the last four games, establishing himself as the early down back for the Patriots. The question is, however, whether or not things will stay that way. Rex Burkhead lead the Pats’ backfield in snaps and had just one fewer touch than Lewis. Burkhead has been featured more in the passing game in recent weeks, an area that Lewis has not been used in nearly as much as in the past, as he has just 10 catches on the season. With Burkhead fully back in the mix in New England after missing multiple weeks with a rib injury (He is back at a Low Injury Risk according to Inside Injuries), things are even murkier in the New England backfield than normal, which means it might be time to flip Lewis for a more stable asset.
Charles Clay BUF – BUY LOW
Clay didn’t do much at all in his return from a multi-week absence on Sunday, catching just 2 passes for 13 yards. It was a rough day for the Bills all around, as they got beaten soundly by the red hot Saints. Moving forward, however, Clay should still have some solid value at the tight end position. He didn’t suffer any setbacks Sunday and should continue to get healthier as the season goes on. Down the stretch, Clay has some great matchups, including against the Patriots, Dolphins and Colts. If you’re looking for a tight end to buy low on for the fantasy playoffs, Clay is a solid option.
Marqise Lee JAX – SELL HIGH
Lee has settled in as the #1 receiving option in Jacksonville rather nicely this season. The Jags are not an explosive passing offense, but he has posted at least 4 catches and 70 yards and/or a touchdown each of the last 4 weeks. What will be interesting to see is whether or not the return of rookie Dede Westbrook will cause any disruption to Lee’s workload. Westbrook has been out since the preseason after undergoing core muscle surgery. Westbrook was an explosive play-maker at Oklahoma and could help bring an added element of that to a Jags offense that could use it. He should also be fully healthy and fresh, as he is a Low Injury Risk according to Inside Injuries. With how limited the opportunities are in Jacksonville for wideouts, it could be bad news for Lee if Westbrook comes in and makes an immediate impact. Selling high on a receiver with limited upside like Lee is a solid move.
