5 UP/5 DOWN: Week 9

5 Up

1) Jamison Crowder (WR) Washington Redskins – He is the #2 receiving option in this offense behind Jordan Reed. Pierre Garcon and DeSean Jackson are role players at this point. He is a reliable slot receiver and should be taken seriously as a viable WR2 or flex play every week in a PPR format.

2) Quincy Enunwa (WR) New York JetsEric Decker’s injury was the opening that Enunwa needed to become a consistent option in this offense. The problem up to this point was the quarterback play. Fitzpatrick played his best game in almost a year and helped Enunwa have a very solid day. If you think that Fitzpatrick or Bryce Petty can provide adequate QB play for the rest of the season, he is a good waiver addition.

3) Devontae Booker (RB) Denver BroncosC.J. Anderson to the IR gives Booker a chance to be a star in this offense. Gary Kubiak is dedicated to the run game and Booker will be the feature RB. The only issue will be his fumbling problem. He needs to correct that to get maximum reps and touches. He is a great addition and possible RB2 for the season.

4) Nick Foles (QB) Kansas City ChiefsAlex Smith suffered a concussion (possibly 2) during the game against the Colts. Nick Foles entered the game and played pretty well. He actually gives the offense a higher ceiling for production due to his ability to throw the ball deep. If Alex Smith is out for next week, Foles will be the starter. If in need a spot starter next week, Foles plays a terrible Jacksonville team.

5) Robert Kelley (RB) Washington Redskins – For clarification, the Redskins will be on a bye next week. The reason I put Kelly here now is because of the way he played in Week 7. Matt Jones has been up and down so far this season and is dealing with an injury. If you have Matt Jones or want to take a flier on a running back down the stretch, Kelly could be worth a snag. He played very well against a tough Cincinnati defense and could be in line for more carries and opportunities.
