As the season wears on and there is more data to go through it can be hard to find those diamonds in the rough or guys that not everyone else is on yet. Each week we will take a look at guys who are still widely available across leagues, have potential matchup value this week. Or maybe a long-term, guys to stash on your bench and see how the season shakes out. With the myriad of injuries across the NFL, there are young guys getting their chance to make an impact. Each week we will also take a look back at some of the top performers from last week’s list and see if they are worth keeping. We will highlight a list of defensive lineman, linebackers, and defensive backs each week.
Cameron Wake DE (MIA): Fantasy football can be a “what have you done for me lately” kind of beast, and that puts Wake at the forefront of our defensive line list. With 5 solos, an assist, and 3.5 sacks in his last 2 games, he has paced a struggling Miami defense. Wake now has 6 sacks on the season and will likely end with a double-digit total. To add to his value, Miami takes on a Ravens offense that has not protected Joe Flacco very well. Wake will have ample opportunity to record a sack this week and could be a good matchup play if you are having Bye issues this week.
