The perfect team
We had to bet on the Bengals players this week, and they had to win games for many managers in fantasy. Joe Burrow thus released one of the most prolific matches in history, with 525 yards and 4 touchdowns, and if all the major WRs in Cincinnati took advantage, Tee Higgins was the most prominent with 12 receptions, 194 yards, 2 touchdowns and over 43 Fantasy points. RB Joe Mixon also participated in the party, with 70 yards in the air, 65 on the ground and 1 touchdown in each sector.
Holder in the absence of Austin Ekeler, RB Justin Jackson took over perfectly. He thus signs 64 yards and 2 touchdowns on the ground, as well as 98 yards in 8 receptions in the aerial game. Used to big performances, Davante Adams still dominated with 10 receptions, 114 yards and 2 touchdowns. And AJ Brown was noticed for his return from injury Thursday, with 11 receptions, 145 yards and 1 touchdown.
At TE, Mark Andrews confirms his number 1 status at the position, and widens the gap due to the absence of Travis Kelce this week. He again passed 100 yards and scored 1 touchdown.
Still on fire, the Dallas defense hurt Washington this weekend. Authors of 5 sacks, 2 interceptions and 2 touchdowns, the Cowboys are number 1 in Fantasy.

Waivers: Players to add this week
Trey Lance (San Francisco 49ers)
Touched on the thumb, Jimmy Garoppolo is uncertain for this weekend. Suddenly, Trey Lance could start and he has a favorable game against Houston in his sights. Even though the Texans have just surprised the Chargers, they are still far below the 49ers. Thanks to his mobility, Lance can score points.
Other QBs to follow: Taysom Hill (NO), Tua Tagovailoa (MIA), Justin Fields (CHI)
Dare Ogunbowale (Jacksonville Jaguars)
After James Robinson’s big injury, the Jaguars’ new number 1 RB is Dare Ogunbowale. His volume of play was good against the Jets last week, and he can be a troubleshooting FLEX this weekend. The game against the Pats is still not very attractive.
Rex Burkhead (Houston Texans)
The RB of the Texans is probably coming out of his best game in his career, with 149 yards in total and 2 touchdowns on the ground against the Chargers. We should not expect him to repeat this performance, but his playing volume is sufficient to consider it.
Boston Scott & Jordan Howard (Philadelphia Eagles)
Out in the game against the Giants, Miles Sanders is hit in the hand. In his absence, two RBs share the work on the backfield of the Eagles: Jordan Howard and Boston Scott. The first is the one that should have the most balls on the ground, but the second is more versatile and therefore has a higher potential.
Other BRs to follow: Derrick Gore (KC), Ke’Shawn Vaughn (VG)
Isaiah McKenzie (Buffalo Bills)
The Bills’ WR took full advantage of the absences of Cole Beasley and Gabriel Davis to come out with a big game against the Pats. He thus finished leader of his team in receptions (11) and yards (125). Davis won’t be here on Sunday, and Beasley is uncertain, so McKenzie still has a great card to play against a porous Falcons defense.
Josh Palmer (Los Angeles Chargers)
If you are light at the WR position, Josh Palmer can help out like WR3. In the absence of Mike Williams again this weekend, he should be the WR number 2 of the Chargers and see arriving some assists from Justin Herbert.
Other WRs to follow: Allen Lazard (GB), KJ Osborn (MIN), Kadarius Toney (NYG), Robby Anderson (CAR)
Gerald Everett (Seattle Seahawks)
The Seahawks TE continues his good streak and is currently a good choice in Fantasy. The meeting against Detroit is favorable to continue this momentum.
Cole Kmet (Chicago Bears)
Nick Foles looked for him a few times and he finished with 49 yards. His potential is greater if Justin Fields plays.
Other TEs to follow: Foster Moreau (LV)
