Players to Buy

Joe Mixon (RB – CIN)

Joe Mixon was a non-factor as a rusher (12 carries for 24 yards) but got the receiving usage yet again. 7 targets. With it now being 3 straight weeks of him going scoreless despite bell-cow usage, the Bengals RB is a screaming buy. Went 0-3 for his touches inside the 5-yard line in Week 3. Positive TD regression is coming his way…

George Kittle (TE – SF)

George Kittle caught four of his five targets for 28 scoreless yards in his first game of the season. But he played a team-high 91% of the snaps, suggesting that he is fully over the groin injury that sidelined him to start the year. If you are sick of streaming TEs off the waiver wire, Kittle should be your priority trade target.

Brandon Aiyuk (WR – SF)

There’s been a lot of turnover in the 49ers offense through 3 weeks, with all the injuries that the team has sustained from their backfield to the QB position. But the one constant has been Brandon Aiyuk, operating as the WR1 in the passing game. He led the SF WRs in snaps in Week 3 and tied the team in target share with Deebo Samuel (28% target share).

Over the last two weeks Aiyuk has averaged north of a 30% target share.
