Week 9 concludes with a Monday Night Football matchup between the Baltimore Ravens and New Orleans Saints.

I have three players to target in this game. These players aren’t the flashiest of names and are more bargain-bin guys who could surprise.

WR James Proche, Ravens

The coaching staff has talked about wanting to get Proche more involved. He saw a season-high 70% route participation rate in Week 8, which was higher than Demarcus Robinson (53%) despite Robinson registering more production.

Proche popped for 7/76/0 and 5/74/0 lines in two games when given extended playing time last season.

WR DeSean Jackson, Ravens

A quarter of Rashod Bateman’s 28 targets came 20-plus yards beyond the line of scrimmage, and Jackson will now be counted on to replace at least part of that role.

Jackson averaged 22.7 yards per reception and scored on 10% of his catches last season. He only needs one play to break the slate.

RB Dwayne Washington, Saints

With backup RB Mark Ingram II (MCL) out 3-4 weeks, Washington becomes New Orleans’ RB2. He saw a season-high 13 snaps last week and tied another season-high with four touches.

Washington may eventually get supplanted for the RB2 role by a practice-squad call-up such as Jordan Howard, but he figures to operate as the No. 2 back tonight, at least.
