Must Add Players

Troy Reeder, LB, Los Angeles Rams

With Kenny Young on the move to Denver, this opens up a starting role again for Troy Reeder. We saw what he did last year once Micah Kiser went down.

He’s a must-add and more than likely out on the wire. If he maintains the role, he’s likely a low-end LB1/high-end LB2 for the rest of the season.

I say if because Ernest Jones will be worked into the lineup more and more. Keep an eye on him and add in deeper leagues if you miss out on Reeder and have a spot.

Anthony Walker, LB, Cleveland Browns

I was shocked when I saw how lightly rostered Anthony Walker is across most platforms. I like to think it’s due to his stint on IR early on in the season.

However, right now Walker is the only linebacker running the show in Cleveland with Jeremiah Owusu-Koramoah taking his turn on IR.

He doesn’t lend much in terms of big-play upside, but you could do worse for a linebacker playing 100% snaps.

Willis has been a quiet surprise this year in IDP leagues. If you have him, you already know.

Outside one game where he got hurt, the game he missed, and the game he returned in on limited snaps Willis has been nothing short of a solid reliable piece in Fantasy.

Yet, he’s still not getting much recognition and should be targeted everywhere.

Jonathan Greenard, DL, Houston Texans

I mentioned Greenard last week, but he’s still shockingly unrostered. He’s sitting at about 10% rostership in IDP leagues on Sleeper.

He’s registered 6 sacks in only 4 games this season. He’s been a bright spot on a pretty poor defense this season.

Depth Adds

Jevon Holland, DB, Miami Dolphins

I wasn’t a huge fan of Jevon Holland as a prospect coming into the league. However, since garnering a larger role on this defense he’s been pretty solid.

I don’t typically trust Miami DBs, but with the snaps he’s getting and the production he’s put up it’s hard to ignore at this point.

Ashtyn Davis, DB, New York Jets

Davis was a player I liked coming into the league. So far he’s been unable to gain much traction whilst dealing with injuries.

However, after the Bye Week, he seems to be healthy and now in a starting role.

He’s yet to provide much big-play upside. But he managed double-digit tackles this past week and has shown in a small sample size that he’s capable of that production consistently.

High Upside Adds

Julian Okwara, DL, Detroit Lions

With Trey Flowers consistently banged up, Okwara made his way into the lineup this week and did some damage with the work he was given.

With Detroit still winless, I tend to believe there will be more and more of a youth movement on this team to get younger players more involved.

I’m not recommending the addition in shallow redraft leagues. But if you’re in a deeper 12+ team dynasty league, I think you could do worse.
