Two solid "Thursday Night Football" games in a row ... that is called a streak! Unless you started receiver Brandin Cooks, you got what you needed out of last night. Receiver Robert Woods could have also done a tad more, but regardless, here are five players I expect to have solid fantasy days who may be slightly off your radar:
1. Tyler Eifert, TE, Cincinnati Bengals
Until playing tight ends against the Arizona Cardinals does not work, we have to use this rule every week. Opposing tight ends have had big games the last four weeks against the Cardinals. Next up is Eifert, so he made the list.
2. Auden Tate, WR, Cincinnati Bengals
When you are the Bengals and you can't seem to get your best player (running back Joe Mixon) going, and your All-Pro wide receiver A.J. Green hasn't played yet, and your former first-round receiver John Ross (who has been solid) is always injured, everyone else must be a sleeper, right? The 6-foot-5 Tate could be a glorified tight end in a receiver's body, and we already established the Cardinals can't cover tight ends, so giddy up.
3. Jaylen Samuels, RB, Pittsburgh Steelers
James Conner (ankle) did not practice Oct. 2-3, and the Ravens have struggled covering running backs in the passing game so far this year. The Steelers also used Samuels in the Wildcat against the Bengals in Week 4, so any increase in touches this week could make Samuels extremely flex-worthy.
4. Jimmy Garoppolo, QB, San Francisco 49ers
We tend to forget about players coming off a bye, but Garoppolo is in a great spot playing at home on "Monday Night Football" against a Browns team that has to travel cross country and also could still be missing key components of their secondary.
5. Ben Watson, TE, New England Patriots
Hey, he is back, and he seems to be getting better the older he gets. As we all know, New England loves to utilize tight ends, so if you're desperate, there are worse options out there.
