If you are still alive in your playoffs, congratulations! If you are starting them this week, good luck! Here are a few guys who might be able to help you.
- Juwan Thompson, Denver Broncos
Thompson hasn’t received a lot of touches because of the success of C.J. Anderson, but he made the most of his limited action on Sunday. He carried the ball four times for 63 yards after Anderson was hobbled. If Anderson isn’t able to go at 100%, he draws some good match-ups the final three weeks (SD, CIN and OAK).
- Kerwynn Williams, Arizona Cardinals
In his first action of the season, Williams made the most out of it. He carried the ball 19 times for 100 yards against a Kansas City defense that had allowed the most rushing yards the last five weeks. With Andre Ellington being ruled out for the rest of the regular season, Williams could become the lead back. However, the situation is quite murky with Stepfan Taylor, Michael Bush, and Marion Grice all vying for touches.
- Andre Williams, New York Giants
Andre Williams finally lived up to the expectations that were placed on him in the preseason. He carried the ball 24 times and eclipsed the 100 yard mark for the first time this season. He also scored his fourth touchdown in the last six games.
- Kamar Aiken, Baltimore Ravens
Aiken has filled in for an injured Torrey Smith and has been efficient. He has back-to-back games of 50+ receiving yards and he scored his second touchdown of the season last week. If Smith remains injured, he might be worthy of a flex option versus Jacksonville.
- Malcolm Floyd, San Diego Chargers
Here are some players Floyd is tied with for touchdowns on the season: Desean Jackson, Sammy Watkins, Kendall Wright, and Jarvis Landry. If you are looking for a deep sleeper option, it appears that Floyd might be your man.
- Baltimore vs. JAX
The Ravens are currently the 13th overall defense and they draw one of the worst offenses in the league. A great streaming option for desperate teams.
