Some more players who might still be available on the waiver wire on your bench that you should consider starting
Carson Palmer (OAK): Carson Palmer as most people know came into the week 7 game against Kansas City and ended up throwing 3 INTs, something he has done many times in his career. This week however he has had the bye week to work with his group of young receivers and SHOULD be able to have a decent game. McFadden is likely out so the Raiders will need a balanced attack.
Michael Bush (OAK): As I just mentioned RB Darren McFadden is not expected to play against Denver on Sunday so it will be Bush getting the start. Bush is a veteran runner who I expect to have a good game in place of McFadden; start this guy with confidence.
Javon Ringer (TEN): Chris Johnson has been a massive bust so far this season, I had him on my start list last week hoping he could get this going against the Colts. Instead he was once again out performed by Ringer who had almost double the yardage on the same amount of carries. I expect to see more carries from Ringer until Johnson can break something big.
Brandon Jacobs (NYG): Bradshaw is the better and younger of the two NYG RBs. but with Bradshaw suffering a foot injury once again Jacobs may see a larger role. It has been reported Bradshaw will play through the pain as he has done so may time before but look for the Giants to balance the rush attack between the talented runners.
Jon Baldwin (KC): Baldwin is a first round selection from this years draft, and started his first game of the season last week against the division rival Chargers. Baldwin looked like one of the better players on the field catching 5 passes for 82 yards including a 39-yard TD grab. Going against the Dolphins in week 9 the Chiefs will be able to expose their vulnerable secondary. Miami will be aware of Baldwin more after his breakout game, but with Bowe and Breaston starting, he should have opportunities across the middle.
Doug Baldwin (SEA): Another Baldwin. If you exclude the disgusting 6-3 loss Seattle had against the Browns 2 weeks ago, Baldwin’s last 3 game stats would total 293 yards with a TD; not bad stats for a WR4 or flex option. This week against Dallas (who HAD the best rush defence in the league until LeSean McCoy came to town) Seattle will need to be able to move the ball in the air in order to win.
Brent Celek (PHI: Celek hasn’t been anywhere near as productive of a fantasy TE since Vick took over as starting QB in Philly. This offseason though Vick himself had talked about getting Celek more involved; his 09′ season included 971 yards and 8 TDs. In Philly’s week 8 win over Dallas Celekwas the teams leading receiver with 7 catches for 94 yards a TD. After a big effort and a big win, Vick may want to keep looking for ways to get Celek the ball.
