Baker Mayfield, Cleveland Browns
Week 9 Stats: 297 Passing YDS, 2 Passing TD, 1 INT, 17.9 PTS
In his first game without Hue Jackson, Baker Mayfield was given free reins of the offense. Unfortunately, he was matched up with a juggernaut in the Kansas City Chiefs. Look for the former Heisman winner to get back into his groove this Sunday.
Nick Mullens, San Francisco 49ers
Week 9 Stats: 262 Passing YDS, 3 Passing TD, 22.2 PTS
People normally talk about Tom Brady or Aaron Rodgers when discussing the greatest quarterback of all time. Those people didn't watch Thursday Night Football and see the show that Nick Mullens put on for the country. He revitalized a stagnant offense, lit up the Oakland Raiders and was verified on Twitter mid-game. I cannot wait to see what he does on Monday Night Football against the Giants.
Duke Johnson, Cleveland Browns
Week 9 Stats: 9 Receptions, 78 Receiving YDS, 2 Receiving TD, 29.6 PTS
Duke Johnson had been quite the disappointment this season, but similar to Baker Mayfield, his talents weren't utilized correctly under Hue Jackson. In the first game without Hue, Duke became the most dynamic player on the Browns’ offense, exclusively in the passing game while Nick Chubb handles the ball-carrying. I’m thrilled to see what he does next, and he’s the only worthwhile running back on the waiver wire while he lasts.
Marquez Valdes-Scantling, Green Bay Packers
Week 9 Stats: 3 Receptions, 101 Receiving YDS, 13.1 PTS
With Geronimo Allison rumored to be out for the foreseeable future due to injury, MVS has been soaking up the spotlight. The rookie has emerged as Aaron Rodgers second favorite target, and he needs to be added in all leagues.
Josh Doctson, Washington Redskins:
Week 9 Stats: 3 Receptions, 31 Receiving YDS, 1 Receiving TD, 12.1 PTS
Josh Doctson hasn't been the receiver that the District of Columbia has needed him to be this year. The injury-ridden former TCU star hasn't found his groove yet in the nation’s capital, but has impressed over the past two weeks and has an outstanding matchup on Sunday against the Buccaneers. With Paul Richardson Jr. sidelined for the remainder of the season, Doctson has the platform to excel and could be a league winner.
