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.
Todd Davis (DEN)
This time of year, it is all about solid point totals and not chasing the big plays. Davis has been consistent and is averaging almost 8 tackles a game. He has had four solo tackles in every game except one this season and has a great matchup against the Browns. Davis is not going to give you an interception return or multi-sack game, but he will fill the tackle column with safe points this week.
Neville Hewitt (NYJ)
Sometimes it takes an injury or suspension for a guy to get playing time. Hewitt has played about 82% of snaps while filling in for Darron Lee and has put together solid lines. He has a great matchup against the Texans this week and is another sneaky source of safe points. He has a floor of about five tackles and an outside ceiling of double-digit totals depending on the game script for the Texans.
