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.
Jordan Evans (CIN)
I had Evans on this list a few weeks ago, but with Vontaze Burfict and Nick Vigil in the picture, he lost a lot of his playing time in recent weeks. Fast forward to now with Burfict and Vigil both dealing with injuries and Evans is the lone every-down linebacker for the Bengals. He had a monster game last week with 7 solos, 4 assists, 1.5 sacks, and an interception. A repeat of that line is very unlikely, but he does have a legitimate chance at double-digit tackles this week.
Jamie Collins Sr (CLE)
It may not be the best matchup against Kansas City this week, but Collins should receive the volume of playing time to make him a worthwhile start. Joe Schobert has been out with injury and the Browns continue to look internally for replacements. Collins is worth considering this week if Schobert remains out of the lineup.
