Fantasy Football Value Gem: Here are a few options to consider if you need to fill out some roster spots at a low cost/player.

Fantasy Football Value Gem

TE – Jermaine Grisham

  • Cost: $2,500
  • Season Stats: 32 catches, 309 yards, 2 TDs.

Jermaine Grisham catches a nice match-up this week against the putrid Saints defense. The team’s dropping of WR Michael Floyd also increases the likelihood of Grisham’s targets staying high. Grisham has five catches in each of the last three games from a total of 23 targets. These numbers are way above the earlier games in the year so for $2,500 this guy could conceivably get you 12+ points.

QB – Sam Bradford

  • Cost: $5,000
  • Season Stats: 2,954 yards passing, 14 TDs, 3 INTs

If you need to save money at the QB position Sam Bradford is a very viable option. He doesn’t pile up massive fantasy stats but he doesn’t make a lot of mistakes either. He’s at home in a game his team needs badly and facing a very mediocre pass defense in the Colts. In recent games he has developed more chemistry with the WRs and Peterson back at RB could help the passing game as well.

Fantasy Football Value Gem

WR – JJ Nelson

  • Cost: $3,900
  • Season Stats: 22 catches, 323 yards, 4 TDs.

As mentioned above Michael Floyd is gone. Josh Brown continues to battle health issues at WR. JJ Nelson has been at times explosive in the running game and passing game and the team desperately needs him now. At $3,900 there is nice upside here.
