In weeks 12 and 13 it was Gerald Hodges putting up the better numbers for Arizona while Haason Reddick turned in mediocre production. In Week 14 the two switched places with Reddick blowing up for double-digit solos while Hodges went 3-2-0. This turn of events, along with a marginal matchup against the Falcons, makes giving either of these guys a playoff start a shaky proposition. Avoid them both if possible.
When it comes to long-term potential Reddick is an interesting prospect. He struggled greatly as a rookie and has been far from stellar this season, but he has shown some flashes of big production. Year three could be a breakout for Reddick so dynasty managers looking for a futures stash may want to give him serious consideration.
Defensive end Markus Golden is another player to target for next year. Look beyond the 2018 numbers and remember he just returned from a serious knee injury. Golden will be fully healthy for 2019 and has top-12 potential on a team that should be much better.
Robert Nkemdiche is another young player who showed considerable potential this season; at least in the few games he has been healthy. Injuries have been a major issue over his first two seasons and now it looks as if the trend will continue into 2019. Nkemdiche was placed on the Reserve/Injured list this week with an ACL injury. Such an injury this late in the season is all but certain to carry over into next year.
Damontae Kazee has been limited in the tackle columns since early in the year but has proven himself a considerable big play threat. If you find yourself in need of a defensive back with big play upside he could be worth the gamble this week against the Cardinals who have a struggling rookie quarterback that has thrown an interception in virtually every game he has started.
Matt Milano left Sunday’s game with a broken fibula that will end his season. The injury happened late in the game so we were not able to get much of a look at how the Bills might replace him going forward. The two most likely options would seem to be former safety Rafael Bush, who has been seeing work at weakside linebacker over the past couple seasons, or Julian Stanford, who had a strong outing at middle linebacker in Week 9 when Tremaine Edmunds was sidelined. There is a reasonably high chance the two could share duties. The Lions have been a solid matchup for linebackers in general but unless we get some confirmation from the coaching staff, this is another risky situation to avoid.
