- I'm still a believer in streaming, and so not one QB is on my pickups list (at least long-term). However, if there are young QBs to stash (ahem, Tua), do so now. We've already seen how quickly guys are adapting to the NFL as rookies, and teams like the Dolphins clearly have good coaching. If and when these guys see the field, they are likely to produce.

Running Backs:

- Zack Moss is going to be a thing. He was good on Sunday, and he's only going to get better. With how bad Singletary has been this year, he will be the primary starter on a good offense for a few years. Other promising performances include: Damien Harris and Cam Akers. Harris has been the guy NE has been itching to feature for several weeks, and the game script and matchup were finally right for him to take advantage. I even remember telling someone over the weekend that I thought Harris might end up having a big game on their bench. As far as Akers, if you listen to the Dynasty Download, you know how much we have talked about Akers this year. While he hasn't broken out, he got some touches and looked great in limited work this week. Add in the fact that Henderson picked up an injury to his groin or thigh and Akers might finally be in line for the workload he needs to get going.

Wide Receivers:

- Oh Corey Davis, you never seem to disappoint me in frustrating a former owner and co-host of the Dynasty Download of mine. All I will say is that this is definitely going to come up during the Week 8 Recap podcast, and you're not going to want to miss that reaction.

Finally, Allen Lazard was dropped by a lot of owners after his injury, and he is a good stash after getting into practice last week due to his trust from Aaron Rodgers. You may want to keep an eye out to stash this guy before he comes back and the markets ticks up. Another one to watch is Jalen Reagor who had a few catches and a TD after he was just activated from the IR by the Eagles who are missing Desean Jackson, Alshon Jeffery, Miles Sanders, and Zach Ertz while playing a better upcoming schedule and a currently hot Carson Wentz. Just sayin'.

I'll also mention that someone might have dropped Shenault last week due to lack of volume recently as well as his bye week last week. He is another talented player just missing a good QB, and the Jags might be in the running for one of four really good QB prospects in next year's draft. This may be a great buy-low if that happens.

Two other good pick-up and stashes are Michael Pittman, Jr and Denzel Mims. We've already seen how good, deep, and talented this WR class is this year with Aiyuk, Jefferson, Higgins, and Lamb all having good seasons so far while Henry Ruggs changes a lot of things for the Raiders offense and Jerry Jeudy was still thought to be the most talented in this class but has been limited by his QB situation. The more of these guys you can stash in dynasty, the better. Do so now!

Tight Ends:

- Dallas Goedert got into the game last week, and is on a bye this week. It might be your last chance to buy low on picking this guy up before it is too late.

The market is really slim on effective TEs to pick up, but Trey Burton or Logan Thomas (which I mentioned last week) may be recent producing TEs that may offer short-term benefit. I don't know if either is a great long-term option at the moment.
