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.
Leighton Vander Esch (DAL)
This is probably the pickup of the week in any IDP format this week. With Sean Lee expected to miss time with another hamstring injury, Vander Esch should slot back in as an every down linebacker. He has had elite tackle production on a per snap basis and there is no reason to expect much of a fall off with an every down role. If he somehow slipped through waivers and you have the chance, pick him up and ride it out until Lee comes back.
Nigel Bradham (PHI)
