RB Donald Brown (Indianapolis)
Percent owned (ESPN): 11.8%
He’s not the most talented back, but even with Joseph Addai back last week, Brown still got the bulk of the carries for Indianapolis, rushing for 80 yards and a score on 14 carries. He quietly has double digit carries in each of his last 4 games.
RB Toby Gerhart (Minnesota)
Percent owned (ESPN): 19.9%
Adrian Peterson is expected to miss another game this week. Gerhart didn’t have the best week last week with 42 yards and a score on 17 carries, but he should find some more running room against Denver this week than he did last week against Atlanta and the former Heisman runner up is always good for volume points as long as Peterson isn’t playing.
WR Greg Little (Cleveland)
Percent owned (ESPN): 11.1%
He’s Colt McCoy’s favorite weapon and the rookie receiver quietly has 16 catches for 200 yards and a score in his last 3. He could be coming into his own.
QB Vince Young (Philadelphia)
Percent owned (ESPN): 6.3%
If you lost your starting quarterback to injury (Vick, Schaub, Cutler), you can do a lot worse this week than Vince Young. Young has thrown for 658 yards, 3 touchdowns, 4 picks, and also rushed for another 45 in 2 starts. It appears he’ll get a 3rd this week over Michael Vick.
WR Vincent Brown (San Diego)
Percent owned (ESPN): 2.1%
Malcom Floyd can’t stay healthy and with the exception of one bad game, Brown has 12 catches for 226 yards and a score in his last 3. He’s a starting receiver in what is still a good offense for fantasy points purposes.
WR Riley Cooper (Philadelphia)
Percent owned (ESPN): 0.5%
Philadelphia plays on Thursday this week and it doesn’t look like Jeremy Maclin will make it back in time for that game. Cooper has 8 catches for 146 yards and a score in 2 starts in Maclin’s absence.
WR Doug Baldwin (Seattle)
Percent owned (ESPN): 0.7%
Baldwin quietly has 39 catches for 604 yards and 2 scores this season. He’ll be Tarvaris Jackson’s favorite target next week once again with Sidney Rice out.
