As we have done every week since the start of the season, let’s take a look at the fantasy football performers who posted good scores despite being mostly unowned.

To be eligible for the list, the player must have been owned in less than 25 percent of ESPN fantasy football leagues. Each week, one quarterback, two running backs, two wide receivers, and one tight end will be mentioned.

Two Patriots earned their way on to this list after their Monday night game. They take the place of running back Wayne Gallman and wide receiver Olamide Zaccheaus.


QB - Drew Lock, Broncos (313 passing yards, 2 passing touchdowns, 1 interception, 47 rushing yards, 1 rushing touchdown)

Entering the fourth quarter of Week 8, Lock amassed just one passing score on the season. He went to throw three in the fourth quarter last week along with another two on Sunday while also having his most productive rushing outing easily.


RB - Kalen Ballage, Chargers (69 rushing yards, 1 rushing touchdown, 2 receptions, 15 receiving yards)

Spending the previous week on the practice squad, Ballage was promoted before Sunday’s game due to Troymaine Pope being in concussion protocol. Justin Jackson left with a knee injury, and Ballage received 15 carries in his Chargers debut including a 5-yard touchdown run early in the second quarter.
