Be sure to check the injury reports to see which players will be out tomorrow. One of my favorite spots is Rotoworld.


These players won't deliver like Andre Brown and Ramses Barden did when they replaced Ahmad Bradshaw and Hakeem Nicks on Thursday, but they could help you pull out a fantasy victory.

Daryl Richardson, St. Louis Rams

The Rams have an early start, which works in  your favor. You can make a decision while most, if not all, of your running backs are still eligible for the week. Jackson is tough, but he hasn't practiced all week.

It could be Richardson's turn again. He's not going to produce against the Bears like he did the Redskins (102 total yards), but he could be an option for those in need.


Leonard Hankerson, Washington Redskins

He caught two passes last week for 68 yards and a score. Josh Morgan had a costly penalty and Aldrick Robinson had a costly drop. If they both wind up in Shanahan's doghouse, Hankerson could take advantage.

The Bengals have been dreadful against the pass and Pierre Garcon will likely be out. There could be fantasy goodies for all of them.


Damaris Johnson, Philadelphia Eagles 

Johnson is slated to start for Jeremy Maclin, but there are plenty of safer options than rolling with Johnson against a tough Arizona defense.


James Jones, Green Bay Packers

The Packers don't play until Monday, so this one is tricky. If you own Jennings and are planning on playing him, then Jones should be your fallback guy. Then again, he didn't do anything in Jennings' absence against the Bears in Week 2.
