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.
Zach Cunningham (HOU)
We rarely highlight a guy who has seen his playing time decrease in recent weeks, but Cunningham racked up 12 tackles and a forced fumble last week against the Eagles. He gets a Jacksonville offense that is struggling to move the ball at all and may even get the chance to rush the passer this week. Houston still has a lot to play for in this final week and they are going to lean on their starters as long as they have to in order to get the win. Cunningham has a chance at double-digit tackles again this week.
Anthony Walker Jr. (IND)
After being ruled out last week due to a shoulder injury, Walker appears to be back and healthy this week. He practiced every day last week before being ruled out, and it may have been a move to keep him healthy for this week’s matchup against the Titans. With everything on the line, the Colts are going to need him to step up alongside Darius Leonard and stop the run. There is a playoff spot on the line and Walker is going to play a big role in deciding that.
