Tyson Allgeier (35% rostered)
Tyson Allgeier proved that he was the lead back with his first 100 yard game in Week 15. Allgeier carried the ball 17 times with Desmond Ridder at QB and took them for 139 yards and 1 TD on his way to a top 5 RB finish. With Desmond Ridder at the helm, Allgeier should find himself getting a heavy workload, edging out Cordarelle Patterson in efficiency since his return.
Zack Moss (1% rostered)
Zack Moss saw a heavy workload with Jonathon Taylor leaving the game against the Vikings, and could be in for a sustained amount of usage with JT out for the year. Moss took 24 carries for 81 yards, and despite his inefficiency, he should remain the lead back for the upcoming games. Moss faces the Chargers and the Giants, both middle of the pack defenses, to finish the fantasy season, so he would be worth the investment. There are not a ton of lead backs out there on waivers right now, so jump while you can.
Jahan Dotson (22% rostered)
In the past two weeks, Dotson has seen consistent performances against a tough New York secondary. Dotson has been targeted 15 times in the past two games, and landed as a top 20 WR in both of those outings. Dotson should be able to see consistent usage as a WR2-3, even against some difficult defenses ahead.
Russell Gage (17% rostered)
The Bucs offense has not been one to invest in this year, but a good end fantasy playoff schedule could make it worth it for you to grab him while you can. Gage saw 12 targets against Cincy, and grabbed 8 for 59 yards and 2 TDs. The Bucs face Arizona and Carolina these next two weeks, which are both favorable for WRs. Gage may not be a starter in 8-10 man leagues, but he may be worth a look for deeper leagues.
