As the season progresses it is hard to find those diamonds in the rough or that guy that no one has heard of. This week we are going to examine the plethora of injuries across the league and who the most likely successor is to that starting job as well as highlight some prime matchups as well as surprising performers to this point. This article will also highlight a few long-term and speculative players that could see their value rise over the course of the season.
Anthony Walker (IND):
This play is highly dependent on the health of Darius Leonard. He rolled his ankle last week and has been questionable all week. The Colts have gone light in practice all week and it is hard to gauge where he is at. If Leonard does not play or is limited, Anthony should see the bulk share of the work in relief. Check the injury status one last time heading into their Thursday night matchup and if Leonard cannot go, Walker is the all-in play.
Vontaze Burfict (CIN):
Here is to hoping that people are just not paying attention in your league or are more focused on the return of Mark Ingram II and Alshon Jeffery. Burfict is finally back from suspension and should roll back out with the starting defense. There is a small chance that he is on a snap count in his first week back, but if he is playing well the Bengals are not going to risk their division lead by not playing him. He is a big injury and suspension risk but has the upside that would make it worth it if he is still available in your league.
