I did this last year with Kamara and Thielen. Hit pay dirt so I reserved a few spots for some scratch off glory again. Here are a few I grabbed:
Boston Scott. Short, a little light but very strong and fast and a solid pass catcher. He looked good in PS and was used at times as a 3 downer in college. Ingram is out 4 weeks. They did pick up Gilleslee but I rolled the dice thinking that was more of an insurance policy. Scott is a better Sproles IMO and if Kamara goes down Scott is a the hedge bet to take most of that work.
Courtland Sutton. Great training camp. Not much PS evidence other than one 50 yard grab but he is big, fast and has the ability to at least become WR2.
Tre’Quan Smith. Saints WR corps is shaky outside of Michael Thomas. Smith was money in training camp and held his own in PS. Meredith was the WR2 on paper but he does not look ready IMO. Tre’Quan is known as a ferocious fighter for toss ups and has the ability to block downfield with no concern. CM needs more time. Very serious injury and just think he needs a slower progression into the lineup.
I likely took too many flyers but I took 2 last year and it worked so I took 3 this year. If one pans out that is some serious value. I think I used good reasoning if it does not work out by week 5 I start hitting the waiver wire hard.
