ANDY BEHRENS: Look, it's no mystery why Sterling Shepard was mass dropped in Yahoo Leagues a handful of weeks ago. He was on IR. He had a toe issue. He's back. And, wow, did he shine on Thursday night in week 7-- 59 yards, eight targets, a touchdown, looked like the old Sterling Shepard.

You are going to want to go ahead and scoop him back up. He's available in over 70% of Yahoo leagues right now-- going to be a high volume receiver for the remainder of this season. Next week's match-up? It's not ideal. It's Tampa. But after that, it's Washington and Philly-- a couple of divisional opponents, very friendly match-ups. Sheppard is going to rank as at least a wide receiver three, possibly better.

Also, if you need help at the quarterback position, Teddy Bridgewater's out there in about 60% of Yahoo Leagues. Bridgewater-- another multi-touchdown effort against the Saints in week 7. That's multiple touchdowns in 3 of his last 4, and he's got the Atlanta Falcons coming up. And it doesn't get much better than that. Teddy is definitely going off for 250, maybe 300 yards in that one, another two or three scores.
