David Wilson – Ahmad Bradshaw’s knee injury opened the door for Wilson to put on a show this weekend, and with Bradshaw’s status for this next week up in the air he is a must add. He exploded for 100 yards and 2 TDs on the ground and added 227 return yards along with a score. The Giants may decide to take a look to see what they have the rookie as they try to maintain their playoff position, making him late season gold. He is currently available in 68% of leagues.
Kirk Cousins – Another player who suffered a knee injury was RG3, and Kirk Cousins would be line to fill in if he were to miss. Reports right now have Griffin as questionable so RG3 owners should grab Cousins as a safety valve in the event that the Redskins hold him out. Cousins is a very capable backup and could be a starter on other teams. He is currently available in 99% of leagues.
Montell Owens – MJD remains out and no updates have been given regarding a return, so Owens should be owned in all leagues after putting up 91 yards and a TD on 14 touches despite missing time early in the game with cramps. He is currently available in 77% of leagues.
Kenny Britt – The drought seemed to finally end for Britt against the Colts last week where he put up 143 yards on 8 catches. Many owners may have lost confidence in stashing him to this point leaving him available in a number of leagues. He gets a tough match up this week against the Jets and Antonio Cromartie, but if you’re an owner who can wait his match up against the Packers in Week 16 is a little more enticing. He is currently available in 50% of leagues.
Jon Baldwin – Dwayne Bowe has been put on IR with broken ribs, and though Baldwin has been less than stellar throughout the season and with Brady Quinn slinging the ball around, he is worth a speculative add, especially in keeper leagues. He is now in a situation to prove that he can handle the job over the last few games of the season. He is currently available in 96% of leagues.
Dwayne Harris – More injuries, this one to Dez Bryant who sustained a fractured left index finger. Harris has moved up the depth chart above Kevin Ogletree and is a much more reliable player. If Dez Bryant is held out, owners may want to have Harris in waiting. He is currently available in 100% of leagues.
Tony Scheffler – He has been moved into the slot position for the Lions and saw 10 targets last week. The Lions are already thin at the WR position and having a TE at the WR position could be a big boost for owners if it sticks. Couple this with the possibility that Brandon Pettigrew, who injured his ankle, possibly being held out this week and Scheffler should be added in most leagues. He is currently available in 98% of leagues.
