There was not much of a general consensus in the quarterback category this week, but there are some interesting names to note. Jared Goff is probably not available in many leagues, but if you are in a smaller league he could be a good pickup. He has played well, as have the Lions. Brock Purdy played well last week filling in for Jimmy Garoppolo. Russell Wilson exited the game early against the Chiefs, but he played one of his best games this season.

Panthers running back Chuba Hubbard was mentioned by all five outlets this week. D’Onta Foreman is the lead back in the Panthers backfield, but with how often Carolina leans on its run game, Hubbard is seeing plenty of touches. It is slim pickings at the running back position at this point in the season, but Hubbard could be a worthwhile pickup.

Two Lions wide receivers are popular this week. Jameson Williams was a popular name for the second week in a row, so maybe you missed out on him. However, the outlets are high on DJ Chark as well. Detroit’s offense is hitting its stride. Even with a tough test coming up against the Jets, outlets believe in Detroit’s weapons.

Chig Okonkwko has been getting consistent targets over the last couple of weeks in Tennessee’s offense. It has been tough for many to find a consistent starting tight end this season, but riding the hot hand with Okonkwko could help you in your playoff matchup.
