BALLER MOVE: Add in 12+ Team Leagues

OWNED IN: 11% of Leagues

ANALYSIS: Marshawn Lynch's tussle with an official earned him an ejection in Week 7 against the Chiefs, followed by a one-game suspension. After Lynch was ejected, Jalen Richard and DeAndre Washington each saw considerable action, with Richard running for 31 yards and catching four passes for 45 yards.

While it was Washington who found the end zone, Richard looks like the back to own heading into a Week 8 matchup against the Bills. A one week rental for a player going up against a Bills defense that ranks in the top-12 in run defense may seem like an unnecessary risk, but in a bye-week panic many fantasy owners will need to take a chance.

Richard should see plenty of touches both on the ground and in the passing game, and that alone merits an add in all formats. Just don't expect him to be rostered ROS.
