in the teams first two games.The move leave

    Each week of the NFL campaign, we will sift through the deeper options at each position with an eye on identifying streaming fantasy commodities with valuable matchups to consider. Derrick Rose Team USA Jersey .Do you need replacement options for this first heavy bye week in fantasy football competition? We have some choice names to consider for those seeking widely available options at each position.QuarterbackBrian Hoyer, Chicago BearsOver the past three weeks, only Ben Roethlisberger and Matt Ryan have scored more fantasy points at the quarterback position than Hoyer, who demonstrated on Sunday that he has no problem distributing the ball to all of his receivers, as four different pass catchers were targeted at least six times.? The result was Hoyers third straight game with two touchdowns, and he exceeded 300 passing yards in each contest.? This week, hell face the Jacksonville Jaguars, who have allowed 17 or more fantasy points to opposing quarterbacks in three of their four games, so his good run is likely to continue. - K.DAlex Smith, Kansas City ChiefsThe Raiders have been a sweet matchup for opposing signal-callers so far, as they have allowed the third-most fantasy points per game in the league and the most in the AFC this year. The generous rates continue when we look a bit deeper, as the Raiders have ceded 8.85 yards per attempt -- second most in the league -- and the sixth-highest scoring rate, allowing a touchdown on 6.3 percent of opposing attempts. Smith averaged 42 rushing yards and produced four passing scores against the Raiders in two meetings last year, so the precedent for success is present. Owned in just a little more than 23 percent of leagues as of Tuesday, Smith is an ideal streaming option for Week 6. - J.M.Running BackBobby Rainey, New York GiantsIf you are really deep into the waiver wire (ownership percentage of 20 percent or less) at running back, there isnt much from which to choose.? Rainey is available in 96 percent of leagues, and as the receiving back for the Giants, his role warrants increased ownership.? This week, Rainey will face off against the Baltimore Ravens, who just allowed Washington Redskins running back Chris Thompson to gain 33 yards on four receptions.? Plugging Rainey in if you are desperate will likely result in a similar total, which while not great, is certainly better than posting a goose egg. - K.DJames White, New England PatriotsWhite led the Patriots backfield in snaps in Week 5 and revived his efficient receiving chemistry with Tom Brady, as he tallied 89 yards from scrimmage, thanks in large part to 63 yards as a receiver. Second behind only Charles Sims last year in fantasy points per route run in PPR formats and with a valuable share of the Patriots offense as long as Dion Lewis is sidelined, White could thrive against a Bengals defense allowing the 11th-most receiving yards to tailbacks on the season. - J.MWide ReceiverCameron Meredith, Chicago BearsWith Kevin White relegated to injured reserve, Meredith stepped into the Bears starting lineup opposite Alshon Jeffery.? Meredith led the Bears on Sunday with 12 targets, which he converted into nine receptions for 130 yards and a score.? As mentioned before, Hoyer is very effective spreading his throws out to multiple receivers, so expecting another double-digit target performance is too aggressive, but even with just seven targets, you should find yourself with 60 yards, based on his historical catch rate and average yards per catch. - K.DDavante Adams, Green Bay PackersThe Packers offense doesnt air the ball out very often, but there is still some value to Adams averaging the most air yards per target on the team. Adams average target travels 12.4 yards downfield, which has fittingly led to him pacing the team with 14.1 yards per reception. With 17.9 percent of the teams targets on the season and such a valuable share of them proving of the vertical variety, its telling to consider Adams has scored in three of four games this season. Can he be the teams James Jones this season and sustain value as a touchdown asset? Available in more than 90 percent of leagues, it takes only a few clicks to find out if he can continue his aerial success with Aaron Rodgers against Dallas this Sunday. - J.MTight EndC.J. Uzomah, Cincinnati BengalsTyler Eifert had to see a back specialist last Wednesday, so its fair to speculate that hes not quite ready to return. If that turns out to be the case in Week 6, Uzomah would start again at tight end for the Bengals. Over the past three games, Uzomah has been serviceable, posting an average of nearly 40 receiving yards per game, which would project to 640 yards for a full season. Last year -- a big year for tight ends -- only 10 tight ends hit that level of production.? Uzomah is available in almost 90 percent of leagues.? He shouldnt be available in yours for as long as Eifert remains inactive. - K.DJesse James, Pittsburgh SteelersThroughout the fantasy football season, we hear the idiom, Dont chase last weeks points. In this case, were actually advising you to chase last weeks points, because deploying The Outlaw is hunting for touchdown production. Its fine to knowingly chase touchdowns past the handful of trusted tight ends. In this case, its nice to know James has a worthy share of a potent passing game with a quarterback who likes to look at tight ends in the red zone. The Dolphins have allowed the seventh-most yards to tight ends this season, so there might even be a bit of yardage cushion if James fails to enter the end zone this Sunday. - J.MD/STTennessee TitansThrough five games, the Titans have allowed just six touchdowns to opposing offenses, which is the lowest per-game rate in the league.? The Titans have blitzed on more than 20 percent of their defensive plays.? Thats relevant because Browns quarterback Cody Kessler has not performed well when under pressure, completing just 44 percent of his throws in those situations, compared to 73 percent when theres no pressure.? Look for the Titans to bring consistent pressure and continue their streak of games forcing multiple interceptions. - K.DDetroit LionsIm endorsing the Lions, mostly based on the favorable matchup metrics we find from the visiting Rams, as opposing defenses have averaged 11 fantasy points in standard leagues against Los Angeles, the most in the league. Its also an endorsement that could provide a high floor, if we see Ezekiel Ansah return, as hes an elite pass rusher and the Lions have respectably produced multiple sacks in each outing this season. With a lackluster Los Angeles offense coming to town in a game with a modest implied point total per the Westgate Las Vegas SuperBook, the Lions are a widely available streaming option to consider. - J.MIndividual Defensive PlayersLinebackerTahir Whitehead, Detroit LionsSticking in the Motor City, the Lions Whitehead has played on 98.8 percent of the teams defensive snaps as the every-down interior linebacker. Given such a steady snap rate, Whitehead has tallied at least 10 tackles in four of five games and is a top-20 producer in most scoring formats. This middle linebacker could be busy corralling Todd Gurley this Sunday. Available in nearly 90 percent of ESPN leagues, Whitehead is a high-floor LB2 to acquire before the market wakes up. - J.MDefensive BackRodney McLeod, Philadelphia EaglesAn expensive import this offseason in free agency, McLeod is living up to his price tag with a presence on 97 percent of the Eagles defensive snaps while rating seventh in coverage grade and 13th against the run among safeties, according to Pro Football Focus. Given he doesnt leave the field very often, we can appreciate McLeods steady tackle rate, while any big plays are merely gravy. - J.MDefensive LineBrandon Graham, Philadelphia EaglesWe find a pair of unheralded fantasy assets from defensive coordinator Jim Schwartzs aggressive scheme.? Graham started the season with a sack in three straight games and then flashed some capable rush defense with six tackles in Week 5. As the key edge menace on a defense predicated on getting honest pressure from the front four, Graham should continue to shine with a healthy snap rate in Washington this weekend. - J.M Kevin Durant USA Jersey . -- Ryan Blaney provided more evidence that Penske Racings No. DeAndre Jordan Team USA Jersey . -- Lou Brocks shoulder-to-shoulder collision with Bill Freehan during the 1968 World Series and Pete Roses bruising hit on Ray Fosse in the 1970 All-Star game could become relics of baseball history, like the dead-ball era. . The 29-year-old Baines has established himself as one of the top attacking full backs in the country and was the subject of two bids from United during the last off-season. Everton manager Roberto Martinez says that keeping Baines at the club is a "massive boost and exciting for the future" because he brings "maturity and football knowledge in a very specialized position on the pitch" and an "infectious and positive influence to the rest of the squad. FLOWERY BRANCH, Ga. -- Outside linebacker OBrien Schofield believes one week of practice will have him ready to play in the Falcons game at New Orleans on Monday night.Schofield, who started 10 games with Atlanta in 2015, re-signed with the Falcons on Thursday to address a sudden depth problem at linebacker.Schofield, a fourth-round pick by Arizona in 2010, played for the Cardinals and Seattle for five seasons before signing with Atlanta last year. He had 28 tackles, two sacks and one forced fumble last season.Atlanta inside linebacker Paul Worrilow had groin surgery on Thursday and will be out indefinitely. Also, rookie outside linebacker DeVondre Campbells status for Monday nights game at New Orleans is uncertain. Campbell, who opened the season as a starter at outside linebacker, missed last weeks win at Oakland with an ankle injury and did not practice on Thursday.Coach Dan Quinn said no timetable has been set for Worrilows return. Philip Wheeler was moved from outside linebacker to play behind starting inside linebacker Deion Jones. Quinn said Worrilows injury and Wheelers move created the need to sign Schofield.We needed to have some more depth on the outside and thats where Schofield has great history being a part of the defense before, Quinn said.Schofield, 29, said his offseason workout schedule left him in good shape to make a quick return to action.I think I did a great job training this offseason, Schofield said. I dont think anybody has worked as hard as I did. Its just going to be getting back into football shape, hitting and running to the ball. Im a veteran. Ive done this for a while so I dont think its going to be that hard.Schofield signed a one-year deal. The details off the contract were not immediately available. Draymond Green USA Jersey. He also had interest from other teams, including the Patriots and Jets.I was waiting for the right opportunity as far as the money and the situation, he said. At the end of the day, I took the situation over the money. I still had other offers where I would be getting paid more than I am now, but I looked at this opportunity to come into a system Im comfortable with and a coach Im very comfortable with and I just came here to take advantage of that.Quinn said he will make a decision on Schofields status later in the week. He said Schofield has to quickly adjust to tweaks in the scheme made this year.Hes a real bright guy and will pick it up quick, Quinn said. Were going to see how it goes and then well make a determination for him at the end of the week to see where his conditioning is in football as well.The Falcons also waived running back Terron Ward. Ward had 29 carries for 95 yards and one touchdown in 2015 and did not have a carry in the teams first two games.The move leaves Atlanta with only two running backs, Devonta Freeman and Tevin Coleman, plus fullback Patrick DiMarco. The Falcons may sign another running back after this week.Game notes WR Julio Jones (thigh) also was held out Thursday. Quinn said Jones is making good progress and hopes he will be ready for Monday nights game. ... Rookie SS Keanu Neal (knee) had limited participation after missing the first two games.
