  • Add Justin Fields: The Chicago Bears QB rushed for 178 yards to break the record for the most rushing yards by a quarterback in a game. He also scored four touchdowns to produce a dominant fantasy performance.
  • Cut Robert Woods: The Tennessee Titans WR has only finished one game with more than 40 receiving yards this season and was held without a catch in Week 9.
  • Sell High on Ken Walker: The Seattle Seahawks rookie has been an excellent closer in recent weeks, but he will have a much harder time closing games in the fantasy playoffs while the Seahawks play some of the league’s best teams.

This piece is a fantasy manager's one-stop shop for managing their fantasy roster early in the week. For more players to add, check out the weekly waiver wire, and for more on this past week's games in general, check out the fantasy football recap.

5 PLAYERS TO ADD

1. QB Justin Fields, Chicago Bears

With 178 rushing yards against the Dolphins in Week 9, Fields set the single-game NFL record for rushing yards by a quarterback in a regular-season game.

  • He also threw for three touchdowns and ran for another.
  • This was his third consecutive game as a top-five fantasy quarterback and his fifth consecutive as a top-12 fantasy quarterback.
  • Fields not only needs to be added in every league, but he should also stay in fantasy starting lineups every week going forward.
  • The Bears have two favorable matchups against the Detroit Lions coming up — one next week while the other is during fantasy championship week.
2. RB Jeff Wilson Jr., Miami Dolphins

Miami traded Chase Edmonds and added Jeff Wilson Jr. at the trade deadline. Wilson may have already taken the lead in the Dolphins' backfield.

  • Miami started the game rotating its RBs by drive, with Raheem Mostert taking the first and third drives while Wilson took the second and fourth. The third drive was the team’s two-minute drill.
  • Mostert started the fifth drive, but Wilson took his place midway through. Wilson played more snaps than Mostert on the fifth, sixth and seventh drives.
  • Mostert played every snap on the eighth drive when the Dolphins tried to run out the clock, but Mostert lost one yard on two carries, and the offense passed on third down.
  • Wilson took the three snaps in victory formation.
  • Wilson looked better as both a rusher and receiver. Both backs ran the ball nine times — Wilson gained 51 yards while Mostert's accumulated 26.
  • Wilson caught three passes for 21 yards while Mostert didn’t record a catch.
  • Both players scored touchdowns.
  • It wouldn’t be surprising to see Wilson start next week. Both players will likely play significantly, regardless of who starts.

3. WR Odell Beckham Jr., Free Agent

There were reports Sunday morning that Beckham’s rehab is going well, meaning he should be fully cleared to play in the next week.

  • Earlier expectations had him returning to action in December, which would have made it much harder for him to help fantasy managers.
  • This new timeline gives him a few weeks to get acquainted with a new team before the fantasy playoffs begin.
  • Beckham wants to play for a contending team, so he will likely end up on a team with a good quarterback and a starting opportunity.
  • He was a top-36 fantasy wide receiver in five of his last seven regular-season games with the Rams.
  • Beckham also gained at least 50 receiving yards in all four playoff games while scoring two touchdowns.
