Top  5 Fantasy Football Free Agents 1). Jermaine Gresham CIN TE - 108 receiving yards 0 TD The thing I like most about Gresham is how frequently he is targeted/used in the Cincinati Bengals offense. For those looking to upgrade their tight end to a more consistent preformer, look no further then Gresham. 2). Mike Goodson, Marcel Reece, or Taiwan Jones OAK RB As of right now Mike Goodson is next in line to take over carries for the injured Darren McFadden,  but he picked up a sprained ankle. Either way, it behooves fantasy owners to grab whichever back shakes out. 3). Cecil Short JAC WR - 56 receiving yards 0 TD Not the greatest of showings, but you still have like the limited production in just 3 receptions. He’s going to get a lot of opportunities going forward. 4). Carson Palmer OAK QB - 414 Passing Yards 4 TD You have to love Palmer even more with McFadden going down. It’s going to force the Raiders to pass it more and more. 5). Ryan Broles DET WR - 52 Receiving yards 0 TD Broyles finally did not find his way into the end zone, but still managed to produce a moderately productive week. He has the potential to become a much bigger player in Detroit’s offense. Reminder- Danny Amendola is coming off a bye/injury. The guy was one of the best wide receivers around before he got injured. Don’t miss out on him. 3 Trends to Watch 1). I think Chris Johnson’s performance this week should give his fantasy owners confidence in starting him every week. 2). A part of me wants to say sell high on Doug Martin because his value is just ridiculous, but realistically with his remaining schedule being ripe with easy opponents and out of the world production I plan on riding him out. 3). One player I might consider trading is Robert Griffin III. RG3 has a pretty tough remaining schedule and has sputtered as of late. If you have depth at quarterback, I would look hard at trading him. Week 10 Byes - Arizona Cardinals, Cleveland Browns, Green  Bay Packers, & Washington Redskins
