Second Half Heroes and Injury Replacements
You may have just experienced the same types of line up losses I have. Some seasons have been ruined already by the injury bug and under performance. Whether it is Vick, Doug Martin, C.J. Spiller, Randall Cobb, Julio Jones, Roddy White, Steven Jackson, and David Wilson and now Jimmy Graham, you still have hope.
Players you should be high on.
Terrance Williams WR – Dallas
If you haven’t noticed. All this guy has done since the week he stepped in the lineup is produce. He is out producing Miles Austin and will continue to play ahead of him. WR3/Flex
Jarrett Boykin WR – Green Bay
It isn’t exactly easy to fill Randall Cobb’s shoes, but when Aaron Rodgers is throwing you the ball, things get a little easier. He could easily be a WR2 the rest of the way out.
Zac Stacy RB – St. Louis
People will be low on Stacy this week if he gets shutdown by the Seahawks without their QB Sam Bradford. Many people may return him to waivers next week, but if you’re dealing with a replacement who is out for the year I like him better than MJD.
Jordan Reed TE – Washington
The performance speaks for itself. If he is still on waivers you need to pick him up. Even Jimmy Graham owners should be in pursuit with Graham in question for this week.
T.Y. Hilton WR – Indianapolis
Many people think Darrius Heyward-Bey is going to the get the boost with the Reggie Wayne injury, and he very may will, but the guy I am after is Hilton. He needs consistent targets. The only knock on him before was the amount of opportunities he was getting. This is a huge opportunity to establish himself with the colts long term. He is a WR2 or Flex going forward.
Marvin Jones – WR – Cincinnati
He may not play this week, which is better for people reading this. He will probably be dropped because he is injured but this is a more than bye-week fill in going forward. Dalton has produced great numbers since Jones’ emergence. Look for him to be solid when he gets healthy again. WR3-WR4
