Chet Gresham looks at the injury questions going into Week 14 of the NFL season

“The bye weeks are coming, the bye weeks are coming!”

We’re finally getting into the portion of the season where we can shine. Anyone can draft Adrian Peterson, A.J. Green and Peyton Manning and be 4-0. Not everyone can build the depth necessary to navigate both bye weeks and injuries.

Attacking the waiver wire at this time of year leads us down two paths: If we have a rash of byes or hurt players, we need plug-n-play types. If we’re in good shape both health and schedule-wise, we can continue to just add the best talents to our benches. There are both options available on a lot of wires this week.

On to the assets. Here is how I would rank the top players available in at least 50 percent of Yahoo leagues at each position. Notes and recommendations on each player will follow below.

QUARTERBACKS
1. Terrelle Pryor, Raiders – Owned in 22 percent of Yahoo leagues
Terrelle Pryor (concussion) appeared to have medical clearance to play in Week 4, but the Raiders erred on the side of caution and held him out. It would be a huge surprise if he isn’t ready to play against the Chargers’ 30th-ranked defense in Week 5. And I still don’t understand why he’s available in so many leagues. Pryor has averaged 61.7 rushing yards per game in four career NFL starts and is rapidly improving as a passer. I’d certainly consider him a top-16 quarterback play going forward.
Recommendation: Should be owned in 10-team leagues

2. Brian Hoyer, Browns – Owned in 6 percent of Yahoo leagues
Brandon Weeden (thumb) has been medically cleared to play. But the Browns are still rolling with Hoyer, and it could stay that way all season long. First of all, Hoyer has actually moved the offense consistently. In two starts (and two wins), he’s gone 55-of-92 (59.7 percent) for 590 yards with five touchdowns and three interceptions. Hoyer is the teacher’s pet of GM Mike Lombardi, while Weeden is the tarnished remains of the old regime. Hoyer gets an injury-ravaged Bills defense this week that played way over their heads in a home upset of the Ravens Week 4. They’ll crumble back to earth this week, making Hoyer a strong plug-n-play in two-quarterback leagues. He has two elite talents to throw to in Josh Gordon/ Jordan Cameron, and the Browns have no running game to rely on.
Recommendation: Should be owned in 12-team leagues

3. Ryan Tannehill, Dolphins – Owned in 22 percent of Yahoo leagues
The Dolphins inability to protect Ryan Tannehill and their refusal to establish a running game is concerning. But week in and week out, the kid proves he can really play. In Monday night’s loss to the Saints, he kept the ball on a read option and ran for 26 yards and finished with four rushes for 48 yards. Tannehill, a former college wideout, has that kind of athleticism. He’s thrown for at least 236 yards and a score in every game this year. Don’t expect the Dolphins to be able to run against the Ravens Sunday, meaning another game in which they’ll rely on Tannehill’s arm.
Recommendation: Should be owned in 12-team leagues

4. Ryan Fitzpatrick – Owned in 1 percent of Yahoo leagues
Jake Locker (hip) is going to be out at least a month, meaning Ryan Fitzpatrick is pushed into the starting gig. We know what he is from his 65 starts with the Bills between 2008 and 2012. Fitz is a smart (Harvard educated) game manager with a woefully weak arm who often struggled as the weather turned in Buffalo. Think Alex Smith but with less athleticism and a more aggressive approach. Fitzpatrick’s career-high for yardage is 3,832 (239.5 per game) and for touchdowns is 24 (1.5 per game). That’s the absolute ceiling here, especially with the Titans trying to run the ball and play defense to win games. Fitzpatrick is a desperation add in two-QB formats only.
Recommendation: Should be owned in two-quarterback leagues only

Watch List: Matt Cassel, Mike Glennon, Chad Henne – Cassel likely did enough in Week 4 to keep the job when the Vikings come out of their bye in Week 6. … Glennon did nothing in his debut to say he’s a viable NFL starter, but he does get the Eagles in Week 6. … Henne is better than Blaine Gabbert. It remains to be seen if that’s enough for him to get the job back.

Cut Bait: Jake Locker, Brandon Weeden, Blaine Gabbert – Locker was showing signs of turning the corner, but it’s almost impossible to wait a month for a QB2 unless you have really deep rosters. … As discussed above, it looks like Weeden has lost out to Brian Hoyer for good. … The Jags are trying to ensure they land Teddy Bridgewater by starting Gabbert.

1. Danny Woodhead, Chargers – Owned in 41 percent of Yahoo leagues
The way the Chargers are using Danny Woodhead is getting really interesting. His first touchdown Sunday came when he lined up as a true wide receiver and beat Cowboys top cover linebacker Bruce Carter on a simple go route. Woodhead’s second score came when he roasted Carter on pretty wheel route. Both times, Philip Rivers clearly identified Woodhead’s matchup as the one he wanted to exploit and both times, the Woodman won his 1-on-1 battle. It’s been happening all year long. Over the last three games, Woodhead is averaging 13.0 touches for 78.6 yards. Don’t expect too many more touchdowns, but the role he’s carved out in San Diego’s new offense is legit.
Recommendation: Should be owned in 10-team PPR leagues

2. Rashad Jennings, Raiders – Owned in 5 percent of Yahoo leagues
Darren McFadden (hamstring) is questionable at best for Week 5 and Marcel Reece (knee) is out indefinitely. So what we have in Rashad Jennings is the definition of “situation over talent.” After reviewing the Week 4 tape, I found not much has changed in Jennings since he averaged 2.8 YPC for the Jags in 2012. He runs upright, stiff and slow. His final stats against the Skins looked good because he was able to break a couple tackles against their woeful defense in the pass game. That said, Jennings could very well be an every-down back when the Raiders host the Chargers and their No. 30 overall defense this week. There will be low-end plug-n-play appeal for desperate owners.
Recommendation: Should be owned in 12-team leagues

3. Roy Helu, Redskins – Owned in 12 percent of Yahoo leagues
Owners that were stashing Roy Helu in the hopes of an Alfred Morris injury caught a bad break. Alf has bruised ribs, but the Redskins are on a bye in Week 5. If that weren’t the case, Helu would be a legit RB1 candidate. Flick on the tape of his relief performance from Sunday and you’ll see an explosive one-cut back that is dynamic in the open field (he hurdled a dude AGAIN) and one that excels in the passing game. In fact, Helu played so impressively that I wouldn’t be surprised if he starts to get a few more touches weekly no matter what. For now, he needs to be owned just in case Morris’ ribs are worse than he’s letting on.
Recommendation: Should be owned in 12-team leagues

4. Jacquizz Rodgers, Falcons – Owned in 42 percent of Yahoo leagues
Credit Jacquizz Rodgers for improving as an NFL player. It’s obvious in the tape that he’s a more decisive and powerful runner than he had been through the first two years of his NFL career. Over the last two weeks, Rodgers has out-touched Jason Snelling 33-24 and out-snapped him 89-68. With Steven Jackson (thigh) tentatively expected to sit out through the Week 6 bye, Rodgers will be a PPR option for needy owners against the Jets this week.
Recommendation: Should be owned in 12-team leagues

5. Willis McGahee, Browns – Owned in 46 percent of Yahoo leagues
Here’s the Browns RB touch count from Week 4: Willis McGahee 15, Chris Ogbonnaya 10, Bobby Rainey 8. After getting his first full week of practice in with his new team, McGahee established himself as the clear feature back on early downs. There’s not a ton of upside here, but the Browns offensive line is getting healthier in the form of RG Shawn Lauvao and they have three plus matchups on the slate: vs. Bills, vs. Lions, at Packers. Although McGahee didn’t convert, he did get a goal-line carry against the Bengals. There’s desperation flex appeal here for Thursday’s game against the Bills ravaged defense.
Recommendation: Should be owned in 12-team leagues

6. Brandon Bolden, Patriots – Owned in 17 percent of Yahoo leagues
Brandon Bolden continues to carve out a role as the Patriots change-of-pace and passing-down back. It’s similar to the role Danny Woodhead played in 2012, when he caught 40 passes and rushed 76 times. Over the last two weeks, Bolden has played on 49-of-145 snaps (33.7 percent) and totaled 15 touches for 112 yards. He appeared to score a touchdown with some hard running against the Falcons, but replay showed his knee was down at the 1-foot line. Bolden projects to sustain this role until Shane Vereen (wrist) gets back in Week 11.
Recommendation: Should be owned in deeper 12-team leagues

7. LeGarrette Blount, Patriots – Owned in 5 percent of Yahoo leagues
Anyone running with power behind the Patriots mauling offensive line deserves a look. Even LeGarrette Blount. Over the last two weeks, Blount and Stevan Ridley have shared the base back duties pretty evenly. The former has played 43 snaps and gotten 23 carries. The latter has played 53 snaps and gotten 25 carries. Given that the Patriots are rolling at 4-0, there’s little reason to think they’ll immediately change this timeshare. Expect somewhere between 8-12 carries for Blount against the Bengals this week.
Recommendation: Should be owned in 14-team leagues

8. Johnathan Franklin, Packers – Owned in 21 percent of Yahoo leagues
Eddie Lacy (concussion) has been fully cleared and will resume feature back duties this week. But James Starks (knee) remains sidelined, opening up another chance for Franklin. Despite a rancid August, the rookie showed well in Week 3. He did lose a costly fumble, but rushed 13 times for 103 yards with a score and caught three passes for 23 yards. It’s certainly possible Franklin has earned a change-of-pace role behind Lacy. And now that the physical Lacy has sustained one concussion, he’ll be in danger of an extended absence if he sustains another one.
Recommendation: Should be owned in 14-team leagues

9. Kendall Hunter, 49ers – Owned in 10 percent of Yahoo leagues
On a national stage last Thursday, Kendall Hunter showed he’s all the way back from his Achilles’ tear. Ripping through the Rams for a 11/49/1 line, he made it obvious that he’s the unquestioned handcuff to Frank Gore. LaMichael James can’t hold Hunter’s jock. If Gore were to go down, Hunter would be a strong RB2. Let this be a reminder about all your handcuffs: Guys like Christine Michael, Joique Bell, Bernard Pierce, Bryce Brown, Michael Bush and Ben Tate should all be owned even if they’re not carrying standalone value.
Recommendation: Should be owned in 14-team leagues

10. Andre Ellington, Cardinals – Owned in 11 percent of Yahoo leagues
During Sunday’s narrow win at Tampa, Rashard Mendenhall dropped a pass, fumbled twice and rushed 12 times for 21 yards. Here are coach Bruce Arians’ comments on the performance: “Rashard had a very tough day and he can’t play that way. He can’t run out of bounds. He’s a veteran. … We need to practice him harder.” Meanwhile rookie Andre Ellington continues to impress. Over the last three weeks, he’s averaged 6.3 touches for 56.0 yards. In Week 4, Ellington played 20 snaps while Alfonso Smith played two and Stepfan Taylor got three.
Recommendation: Should be owned in 14-team leagues

Watch List: Jonathan Stewart, Tashard Choice, Shonn Greene, Benny Cunningham, Ronnie Hillman, Khiry Robinson – Stewart (ankle) appears on track to return as a timeshare back in Week 7. … The injuries to C.J. Spiller (ankle) and Fred Jackson (knee) don’t appear serious, so Choice is just someone to monitor. … Greene could be back to complement Chris Johnson as soon as this week. … Cunningham played ahead of a benched Isaiah Pead in Week 4. We’re still waiting for more info there. … Hillman remains the primary change-of-pace guy behind Knowshon Moreno. … Robinson is getting more and more reps during meaningful plays. He looks far better than Mark Ingram (week to week, toe).

Cut Bait: Marcel Reece, Alfonso Smith, Felix Jones, Jonathan Dwyer – Reece (knee) is out indefinitely. … Smith is playing far behind Andre Ellington now. … Jones and Dwyer are going to do a lot of standing around and watching Le’Veon Bell going forward. WIDE RECEIVERS
1. Justin Blackmon, Jaguars – Owned in 42 percent of Yahoo leagues
Justin Blackmon’s four-game suspension is over and he’ll immediately slide back into the starting lineup. Unfortunately, last year’s No. 5 overall pick will be greeted by Blaine Gabbert. Over the first eight games of 2012 (when Gabbert was starting), Blackmon totaled 23 catches for 225 yards with one touchdown. Over the final eight games (when Chad Henne took the majority of snaps), he posted 41 catches for 640 yards and four scores. The bottom line is that Blackmon is a very talented player, and we want talented players on our roster. And if the Jags want to win a game this year, they’ll go back to Henne at some point. If and when that happens, Blackmon will be on the WR3 radar. He’s reportedly in tremendous physical condition.
Recommendation: Should be owned in 10-team leagues

2. Jeremy Kerley, Jets – Owned in 3 percent of Yahoo leagues
Here’s a short-term plug-n-play option for desperate owners. With Stephen Hill (concussion) questionable and Santonio Holmes (hamstring) out indefinitely, Geno Smith projects to rely on Jeremy Kerley and Kellen Winslow. Kerley proved last year that he’s very underrated as a go-to guy, leading the Jets with 56 catches for 827 yards and two touchdowns. On Monday night, we can expect the Jets to be trailing a desperate Falcons team for much of the game. That should lead to some garbage time chances for Kerley.
Recommendation: Should be owned in 12-team leagues

3. Nate Washington, Titans – Owned in 14 percent of Yahoo leagues
Very quietly, Nate Washington is among the top-40 pass-catchers in receptions (19), yards (332) and touchdowns (2). Taking over as the true No. 1 wideout for an unproductive and injured Kenny Britt, Washington has played on 176-of-211 snaps (83.4 percent) over the last three weeks. He’s responded with two 100-yard games and 15 catches during that span. Washington gets a downgrade with Jake Locker sidelined, but Ryan Fitzpatrick showed faith by chucking a jump ball deep downfield when he saw a covered Washington in single coverage. The play went for a 77-yard touchdown.
Recommendation: Should be owned in 12-team leagues

4. Robert Woods, Bills – Owned in 12 percent of Yahoo leagues
Robert Woods is a second-round rookie that has played on more snaps than Stevie Johnson in each of the last two weeks. That’s not meant to insinuate that Woods is the Bills’ new No. 1 receiver – it just shows that this kid never leaves the field. Woods is also flashing plenty, scoring once on a pretty deep post in Week 4 and getting another toe-tapping score reversed on replay. Theoretically, Woods will be in a good spot this week as Browns shutdown corner Joe Haden will be on Johnson. But he’s still a risky flier because E.J. Manuel is so raw as a thrower.
Recommendation: Should be owned in 14-team leagues

5. Leonard Hankerson, Redskins – Owned in 16 percent of Yahoo leagues
I’ve had Hankerson on the Watch List for the past few weeks as we waited to see if he’d full separate from Josh Morgan at the Z spot. It’s happened. Hankerson has started three straight games, playing 129 snaps and seeing 16 targets during that stretch. Morgan, a better blocker but inferior receiver, has seen just 69 snaps and nine targets. The Z is position isn’t an incredibly productive one in the Shanahan and Son scheme, but Hankerson is a talented route-runner at 6’2/211. There’s a little upside here.
Recommendation: Should be owned in 14-team leagues

6. Kendall Wright, Titans – Owned in 24 percent of Yahoo leagues
With Kenny Britt (ribs, ineffectiveness) out in Week 4, Wright was second on the Titans in snaps (50-of-67). It proved the Titans see him as capable of playing outside in two-wide sets as well as inside in three-wide formations. Wright hasn’t proven to be a playmaker in the NFL, but he certainly was one while at Baylor. Only in his second pro season, there’s tons of room for improvement. Ryan Fitzpatrick’s weak arm could cause the Titans to execute more short throws to Wright. And Britt is a candidate to be traded by the Oct. 29 deadline.
Recommendation: Should be owned in 14-team leagues

7. Ryan Broyles, Lions – Owned in 39 percent of Yahoo leagues
Ryan Broyles’ first game without Nate Burleson (arm) didn’t go exactly as I expected. He had zero catches on one target as Matthew Stafford used Brandon Pettigrew (7/54/0) over the middle more. But Broyles did take over full-time slot duties, playing on 43 snaps and running a healthy 22 routes. It’s the kind of usage that gives him a chance to help us at some point down the line. There’s enough upside here to stash for another week or two and see if Broyles becomes a real part of the gameplan.
Recommendation: Should be owned in 14-team leagues

8. Terrance Williams, Cowboys – Owned in 4 percent of Yahoo leagues
As expected, Terrance Williams started in place of Miles Austin (hamstring) on Sunday. The third-round rookie finished with seven catches for 71 yards, but his performance wasn’t particularly strong. All of his catches came on low-upside comebacks and he lost a critical fumble near the goal-line to seal a loss. Still, Williams is going to get a fistful of targets anytime Austin sits. And given Austin’s history of hamstring issues, that could be often.
Recommendation: Should be owned in 14-team leagues

Watch List: Percy Harvin, Kenny Britt, Markus Wheaton – The latest word on Harvin is that his recovery is going “extremely well.” I would still only stash in extremely deep spots. … Britt is worth watching just in case he gets traded to New England, Detroit or San Francisco. … Wheaton played on 36 snaps in Week 4. In Weeks 1-3 combined, he played 20 snaps. 

Cut Bait: Santonio Holmes, Nate Burleson, Santana Moss, Dwayne Harris – Holmes (hamstring) is expected to miss a few weeks. … Burleson (arm) won’t be back until November at the earliest. … Moss is falling behind Hankerson for targets. … Harris is playing behind Terrance Williams. TIGHT ENDS
1. Heath Miller, Steelers – Owned in 44 percent of Yahoo leagues
Heath Miller was my No. 1 add at the tight end position last week, so hopefully most of you already scooped him up. After playing on 30-of-66 snaps in his Week 3 debut, he flew across the pond and played on 75-of-79 snaps Sunday. It’s clear the knee that he blew out in Week 15 of last year is not a concern. Miller averaged 4.7 catches for 54.4 yards with eight touchdowns in 2012 – numbers that are sustainable going forward this year.
Recommendation: Should be owned in 10-team leagues

2. Coby Fleener, Colts – Owned in 32 percent of Yahoo leagues
A lot of knee-jerk owners bailed on Fleener when he was held to two catches for 13 yards on two targets in Week 3. Owners that saw the bigger picture and held on were rewarded in Week 4, when Fleener ripped up the Jags for a 5/77/1 line. The truth is that nothing really changed too much between the two weeks. Fleener is an every-down move tight end that is an athletic pass-catcher. He’s been featured by Andrew Luck and Pep Hamilton going all the way back to Stanford. There’s more than enough upside to ride out week-to-week inconsistencies.
Recommendation: Should be owned in 10-team leagues

3. Charles Clay, Dolphins – Owned in 47 percent of Yahoo leagues
We can’t keep underrating how athletic Clay is – and how involved in the gameplan he is. Through four weeks, he’s caught no fewer than four passes in each game and has seen 25 targets. That’s two fewer than Mike Wallace and three fewer than Brandon Gibson. On Monday night, we saw the Dolphins draw up a pretty goal-line pattern for Clay to score on a touch throw from Ryan Tannehill. Clay, who has played on 83.2 percent of the snaps this season, is a high-end TE2 that’s here to stay.
Recommendation: Should be owned in 12-team leagues

4. Brandon Pettigrew, Lions – Owned in 34 percent of Yahoo leagues
At least for one week, the Lions decided to bump up Brandon Pettigrew’s usage as a work-around for Nate Burleson’s absence. Pettigrew did his catch-and-fall thing well against the Bears, hauling in all seven of his targets for 54 yards. As discussed in this space last week, Pettigrew is just a PPR add because he provides nothing after the catch and has scored a total of 14 touchdowns in 61 games. But as deep-league owners know, anyone projecting to get five catches a week can help us. The Lions are a good bet to continue to use short Pettigrew passes as an extension of their running game.
Recommendation: Should be owned in deeper 12-team PPR leagues

5. Kellen Winslow, Jets – Owned in 9 percent of Yahoo leagues
The Jets lost Stephen Hill (concussion) two plays into Sunday’s loss and then Santonio Holmes (hamstring) bowed out in the fourth quarter. That led to a renewed emphasis on Kellen Winslow, who finished with a 6/73/0 line on nine targets. Both wideouts are very questionable for this week’s Monday night game at Atlanta. Winslow is always going to be very risky because of his balky knees and Geno Smith’s erratic style, but the Jets may not have a choice but to target the 30-year-old veteran heavily. A potential starting wideout duo of Jeremy Kerley and Clyde Gates is scary.
Recommendation: Should be owned in 14-team leagues

Watch List: Jordan Reed, Scott Chandler, Tyler Eifert, Brent Celek, Garrett Graham, Rob Housler, Clay Harbor – Reed should be over his quad issue after the bye. I like him more than Fred Davis. … If you need a TE2 with very little upside, Chandler is your man. … Eifert continues to play about 60 percent of the snaps weekly, but Jermaine Gresham is crippling his chances. … Celek would have had a nice Week 4 line if not for a horrific drop at the 5-yard line. … Graham is just the No. 4 option on a run-first team. … Housler has too much talent not to watch, but he’s not a focal point in the Arians scheme. … Clay Harbor is going to be the pass-catching TE in Jacksonville indefinitely after Marcedes Lewis aggravated his calf injury. If only the Jags had a QB.
 
DEFENSE/SPECIAL TEAMS
1. Falcons – Owned in 17 percent of Yahoo leagues
Desperate teams often show up big in the NFL. And now that the Falcons sit at 1-3, they can safely consider Monday Night’s home game against the Jets a must-win. Expect extra juice and energy out of the defense as they get after error-prone rookie Geno Smith and the Jets. Smith is second in the NFL in interceptions (8), tied for second in sacks taken (14) and has fumbled twice. He might not have either of his top wideouts in Stephen Hill (concussion) and Santonio Holmes (hamstring).

2. Rams – Owned in 51 percent of Yahoo leagues
St. Louis is 1-3 and has been among the league’s biggest disappointments. Their defense is giving up 27.2 points per game and has generated just five turnovers. But they are a no-brainer stream this week because they face the league’s most inept quarterback, Blaine Gabbert. During his three-year career, Gabbert has gone 5-21 as a starter, completing just 53.4 percent of his passes while throwing 21 touchdowns against 22 interceptions. He’s a disaster waiting to happen.

3. Browns – Owned in 8 percent of Yahoo leagues
We saw what this unit is capable of in Week 4 as they completely dominated a very talented Bengals offense. For my money, Joe Haden is right there with Darrelle Revis and Richard Sherman as the best shadow corner in the league. He’ll easily lock up Stevie Johnson when the Browns host the Bills on Thursday night. It doesn’t hurt that both C.J. Spiller (ankle) and Fred Jackson (knee) are questionable. We also have the trend of Thursday Night Football games turning uglier than expected. 13 of the last 19 have stayed under the posted total in Vegas.

KICKERS  
1. Greg Zuerlein, Rams – Owned in 31 percent of Yahoo leagues
Many owners have already given up on Greg Zuerlein or will give up on him. After all, he’s attempted a grand total of one field goal in the last two weeks thanks to the ineptitude of the Rams offense. But this week he gets the medicine that cures all – a home date with the Jacksonville Jaguars. The Leg should get at least two field goals and a few extra points.

2. Nick Novak, Chargers – Owned in 10 percent of Yahoo leagues
The offshoot of Philip Rivers renaissance under Mike McCoy has been chances for Nick Novak. Through four weeks, he’s already racked up nine field-goal attempts and 12 extra points. Now Novak gets to go to Oakland, where he’ll get plenty more opportunities thanks to the Raiders’ Swiss cheese defense.

3. Steven Hauschka, Seahawks – Owned in 33 percent of Yahoo leagues
Ideally, we like our kickers to be in a dome. And that’s the case with Hauschka this week, as he’s at Indianapolis. The veteran is already 8-of-8 on the season.
