A Heavy Workload Is Keeping Kamar Aiken Relevant

BALLER MOVE: Add in 10- and 12-Team Leagues OWNED IN: 40% Fleaflicker ANALYSIS: Kamar Aiken continues to find a strong floor every week, despite the QB carousel in Baltimore right now.

Markus Wheaton Is a Big-Play Threat

BALLER MOVE: Add in 10- and 12-Team Leagues OWNED IN: 45% Fleaflicker ANALYSIS: Over the last three weeks, Wheaton has managed to find a real role in this offense between the massive space created by Martavis Bryant and Antonio Brown.

BALLER MOVE: Add in 10- and 12-Team Leagues OWNED IN: 38% Fleaflicker ANALYSIS: Willie Snead's stock dropped far after a string of inconsistency, but he has a good shot at providing value two weeks in a row.

Richard Rodgers Answering Prayers at TE?

BALLER MOVE: Add in Deeper Leagues OWNED IN: 47% Owned on Fleaflicker ANALYSIS: Does the hail mary force Rodgers (the QB) to feed Rodgers (the TE)? We really don't know.
