Here's your Tuesday to-do list, at least if you are in the United States:
2. Spend your waiver priority or drop down some FAAB money on one or more of these players to improve your fantasy football squad.
Dion Lewis, RB, New England Patriots
An RB1, especially in PPR leagues, before he tore his ACL in Week 9 of last year, Lewis is expected to make his return to the field this weekend versus the Seahawks. James White has handled the role of pass-catching back in New England's offense very well, and LeGarrette Blount is going to remain the team's early-down punisher. However, Lewis needs to be added in all leagues in case he supplants White and resumes being close to an every-week start.
Peyton Barber, RB, Tampa Bay Buccaneers
The Bucs are running out of running backs, and that's good news for Barber. Antone Smith and Charles Sims are on IR. Jacquizz Rodgers and Doug Martin didn't practice Monday, which may foreshadow their inactivity in Week 10. At this point, Tampa Bay's backfield consists of Barber, Mike James and ... and ...? You get the point. Barber seems like a lock for at least 15 touches (his workload in Week 9) and is flexworthy against the Bears.
Chris Ivory, RB, Jacksonville Jaguars
Nathaniel Hackett has been the Jags' offensive coordinator for barely a week, and he seems to have already brought clarity to the team's ground game. Ivory out-touched T.J. Yeldon on Sunday, 19-12, and outgained him, 107-65. Yeldon's receiving score gave him the greater fantasy output, but Ivory had his own TD snuffed out by a goal-line fumble. As it is, Ivory should be regarded as the leader of a run-based offense going forward. He will have RB2 consideration against the Texans, who have allowed nine touchdowns to running backs in eight games.
Kapri Bibbs, RB, Denver Broncos
Yes, Bibbs handled the ball only three times Sunday night and 12.9 of his 14 fantasy points came on one play, but he still showed more juice on that 69-yard scamper than Devontae Booker displayed versus the Raiders. On Monday, head coach Gary Kubiak said Bibbs will get more work going forward. The uncertainty as to how much more work makes him a risky pickup. Working in his favor, however, is an upcoming meeting against the Saints in New Orleans. We could very well see this undrafted rookie break off another big play or two on the fast turf.
Cole Beasley, WR, Dallas Cowboys
Beasley isn't just for PPR owners anymore. He doesn't have an astronomically high ceiling, but 50 yards has become his dependable floor and he has found the end zone in three of the past four games. His stellar connection with quarterback Dak Prescott is clear, and with Prescott not going anywhere anytime soon, Beasley will continue to be an extremely safe if not spectacular WR3 with considerable TD upside. He's still available in about 40 percent of fantasy football leagues.
Rishard Matthews, WR, Tennessee Titans
Matthews is a lot like Beasley in that he is never likely to give you 100 yards, but you can count on him for at least four catches and 40 yards every week. The reason why he's in this column is, like Beasley, Matthews is scoring too much to be ignored any longer. He has five touchdowns in his last five games and will probably keep rolling over the next three weeks when he faces the Packers, Colts and Bears. There's nothing that scares you about those matchups.
Jay Cutler, QB, Chicago Bears
Four top-10 fantasy quarterbacks -- Matthew Stafford, Derek Carr, Andrew Luck and Tyrod Taylor are all on bye for Week 10. A lot of you are looking for a replacement, so how about Cutler? He looked competent and consistently made surprisingly good decisions against the Vikings in Week 8 and should be even better and more productive versus the Buccaneers. Tampa Bay has given up the eighth-most fantasy points to QBs, including four TDs in each of its last two games.
