- How is it that Taysom Hill is still available in 58% of Yahoo leagues? As soon as we learned that he was going to get the start against Atlanta, should have been scooped up in pretty much any competitive league. All he did was go out and throw for over 230 yards, showcased his deep ball abilities, got a stronger arm, obviously, than Drew Brees. Also rushed for a couple of touchdowns. 50-plus yards on the ground, 10 rushing attempts.

That's almost the floor for what he's going to give you rushing-wise, with the exception of the touchdowns, in any given week. He gets Denver next week, and then it's Atlanta again. That is just about the best matchup for any quarterback in fantasy football. You want to keep him active over these next couple weeks until Brees is back.

Also, if you need help with the running back position, let's say you're in a PPR league, take a look at James White. He was dropped in thousands of Yahoo leagues. Understandably, because Rex Burkhead had surpassed him in terms of usage. Burkhead injured a knee, unfortunately, in week 11. That led to James White getting eight targets. He caught six of them, 64 yards. He's going to remain a PPR asset moving forward.
