Another week, another reshuffling of the fantasy landscape. Per the usual, we have a fresh collection of unfortunate injuries to manage around, so let’s get to work. Every player listed below is available in a majority of Yahoo fantasy leagues and approved for immediate use.
Wide receivers and tight ends
Tank Dell, Houston Texans (5% rostered)
Dell is an undersized receiver with live-wire quickness who plays bigger than his official dimensions (5-foot-10, 165). He was ludicrously productive at the collegiate level, catching 199 passes for 2,727 yards and 29 TDs over his final two seasons at Houston. He was a preseason hero for the Texans, too. Dell simply cooked the Colts on Sunday, finishing with seven catches, 72 yards and one score on a team-high 10 targets.

Twelve of Atwell’s 13 receptions this season have resulted in first downs, as he’s generally seeing high-yield downfield chances (13.4 ADOT). Even if his weekly targets decrease as the season unfolds, he’s likely to retain fantasy relevance as a higher-variance receiver with big-play potential.
The Broncos happen to have a rookie burner with 4.38-speed who only rarely plays. But when he’s on the field, he can do stuff like this:
Hat tip to Russell Wilson for a gorgeous throw right there.
Mims averaged 19.5…
