Whether it's a chronic aliment or a case of passing illness, there exists some sort of prescription meant to ease your pain. Week in and week out, we dig through our medicinal cabinet to find the perfect prescription for your fantasy aches and bruises.
In this week's Fantasy Prescription we, take a look at everyone's favorite fantasy occurrence: TOUCHDOWNS BABY!
I can't begin to tell you how many times I've run into the same story. Someone takes a look at his roster wondering why he's losing with a squad of people like Jay Ajayi, Julio Jones, and Demariyus Thomas.
Common factor: One Touchdown between all three of them thus far.
Fantasy Football is about Touchdowns. Pure and simple. Without having an ample supple of them every week, you're going to be in for a rough season.
For all everyone out there having issues scoring enough points week to week, here are some prime Touchdown Scoring Prescriptions to target through trades or Free Agency.
Crabtree has probably been one of the most underrated and looked over WR in the NFL. He was passed on in the 2009 Draft for Ted Ginn (Eww), he's never been considered a No. 1 WR, and ever since his losing bout to Richard Sherman his name has been synonymous with "Sorry Receiver". With all that in mind, Crabtree has 23 TDs since joining the raiders in 2015 and this season alone he's tied for the most receiving TDs with the likes of Jordy Nelson and Deandre Hopkins. When it comes to the Raiders, the redzone may as well be dubbed the Crab-zone. Getting Crabtree on your team is an instant boost.
RB Green Bay
If Week 8 did anything for the Packers, it showed the world exactly how the new RB rotation works with Brett Hundley under center. While having the bell cow RB in a Green Bay offense isn't as tantalizing as it used to be, Jones stands out as the only benefactor from all the recent injuries. With him on the field 44 snaps to Ty Montgomery's 7, everyone should be doing everything possible to acquire him. Jones seems to naturally have a nose for the end zone as he has scored three of the last four games. While the lingering presence of Montgomery may cause some concern as he continues to get healthier, the loss of Rodgers should quell those concerns. Montgomery was a great fit for the Packers under a Aaron Rodgers offense predicated of throwing. With the game script more in line to make the game manageable for Hundley, Jones looks to be a consistent cog in keeping Green Bays hopes alive for the season.
Gone is the narrative of the Dolphins offense being a dumpster fire to avoid, and I don't mean that just because Jay Cutler got hurt. While things do seem to be on the rise with the Cutler injury, Landry is someone you need to own regardless. Landry has managed to have double digit targets in all but one game this year and fantasy football works off a simple formula for WRs.
Targets+Skill+Red zone targets=TOUCHDOWNS.
Funny how that works huh? Landry has always been regarded as a good NFL WR but fantasy wise TDs have never been his forte until recently. With three TDs in the last three games, Landry has been a key contributor in the offensive revitalizing effort Miami is undergoing. With Ajayi continuing to be unable to score, Landry seems to be the go-to option once Miami gets within the ten yard line.
