Nick Foles – Michael Vick went down with a concussion during the Eagle’s Week 10 game against the Cowboys and Nick Foles played well for his first NFL action. Vick is likely to miss Week 11 and possibly more making Foles well worth an add, especially if you own Ben Roethlisberger who was injured Monday night. He will face a weak Redskins defense if he gets the start. He is currently available in 95% of leagues.
Ryan Fitzpatrick – He may not be widely available, but with a match up against the mediocre Dolphin’s defense this week he could be a serviceable start, again if you’re sporting Big Ben. He is currently available in 52% of leagues.
Marcel Reece – With McFadden out the Raiders looked like they were going to split carries between Reece and Taiwan Jones, but on Sunday the Raiders clearly relied on Reece. If McFadden sits again this week, Reece could be a strong spot start against the Saints. He is currently available in 67% of leagues.
Daniel Thomas – He was given the feature job early in the game after Reggie Bush fumbled the ball. The Dolphins are likely to continue their timeshare, but with Bush’s injury history, owners would be wise to scoop up Thomas in the event that Bush is injured or benched again. He is currently available in 69% of leagues.
Beanie Wells – Wells is set to return in Week 12 and could immediately return to the feature job with the backs in Arizona not wowing the coaching staff. Owners who can afford to have him benched for this week should add him, but remember that his fantasy playoff schedule is not spectacular. He is currently available in 80% of leagues.
James Starks – Both Green and Starks split time before the Packers BYE week, and the coaching staff has already lost some of their confidence in Green. So stashing Starks is a good idea and may even be worth a plug and play in deeper leagues. He is available in 86% of leagues.
Danario Alexander – He has likely taken the starting job away from Robert Meachem, and looks like he can sustain every week value after 2 strong games. He’s a good add for depth and upside, but remember that he was cut from the Rams because he could not stay healthy. He is currently available in 95% of leagues.
Golden Tate – He has come on over the last 3 games, and his value could fluctuate in Seattle’s run heavy offense. He has scored 3 TDs over the last 2 games and is a decent stash right now. He is currently available in 76% of leagues.
Dustin Keller – Keller called Sunday’s game the “worst game that I’ve played in my career”, but still managed 3 receptions for 47 yards. He is worth a grab if you’re shaky at the TE position and remains the best receiving option for the Jets. He is currently available in 62% of leagues.
