Fred Jackson (Bills)- RB Marshawn Lynch left the game in the second quarter with a shoulder injury which allowed Jackson to total 113 yards of offense against the Broncos. He rushed for a TD in the fourth quarter and could start in Week 17 if Lynch is out.
Jaamal Charles (Chiefs)- Charles caught three passes for 102 yards against the Dolphins last week. He only carried the ball three times but has a favorable matchup against the Bengals this week.
Honorable mention: Ladell Betts (Redskins)
Chris Henry (Bengals)- With WR Chad Johnson out for the game against the Browns, Henry took advantage and caught a TD for the second straight week. If Johnson is out again, he could be a low-end start against the Chiefs this week.
Johnnie Lee Higgins (Raiders)- Higgins has 122 yards and two touchdowns in his past two games. This month, he has a 56-yard catch and is averaging 18 yards per reception
Honorable mention: Devard Darling (Chiefs)
Anthony Fasano (Dolphins)- Fasano caught two touchdowns last week against the Chiefs. In three games this month, he has 103 receiving yards and three touchdowns. QB Chad Pennington could look his way often in a big game against the Jets this week.
Honorable mention: Billy Miller (Saints)
Josh Brown (Rams)- Brown has 18 points his past two games while converting all five of his field goal attempts. He is kicking in a dome again this week against the Falcons.
Honorable mention: Kris Brown (Texans)
