The Green Bay Packers and fantasy owners lost Aaron Rodgers on Monday Night Football and now for the next couple of weeks.  Replacing him will not be easy, and this week they will be fighting Tom Brady owners for whatever is left on your waiver wire!  Arian Foster and Darren McFadden barely played in week 9 so who knows if they are going to be any help this week and owners will be battling Jamaal Charles, Stevan Ridley, Chris Ivory and Willis McGahee owners for a replacement if they don't have a suitable back up RB.The New England Pariots, New York Jets, Kansas City Chiefs and Cleveland Browns are all on BYE weeks BYE Week Impact PlayersQBs - Tom Brady, Alex Smith, Geno SmithRBs - Steven Ridley, Chris Ivory, Jamaal Charles, Willis McGaheeWRs - Aaron Dobson, Danny Amendola, Julian Edelman, Dwayne Bowe, Josh GordonTEs - Rob Gronkowski, Jordan CameronWaiver Wire HelpQBsNick Foles - Foles was unbelievable last week against a weak Raiders defense, throwing 7 touchdowns, tying an NFL record. Vick will most likely be sidelined again this week which mean Foles will get another start. This week he goes up against the Packers who let Bears backup Josh McCown throw for 272 yards and 2 TDs.Jake Locker - Jake Locker is facing the winless Jacksonville Jaguars and he will be on the field for the majority of the game as the Jags offense usually goes 3 and out. The Titans run game should help open up the pass for Locker, and he can also get it done with his legs.Eli Manning - If he's available in your league and you need a QB this week, this is the week to use Eli. The Giants offense will have Andre Brown back to help the run game, and the Raiders just allowed 7 passing touchdowns to Nick Foles and the Eagles. Eli should pick apart Oakland's secondary.Case Keenum - It looks like the Texans have found themselves a new QB in Keenum after his performance on Sunday Night Football. Keenum who went to the University of Houston is used to throwing the ball 50+ times a game and loves the deep ball. He connected on several long passes to Andre Johnson, and finished with 350 yards and 3 touchdowns. If Foster and Tate continue to play through injuries, then Houston will rely on Keenum to sling the ball going forward.RBsZac Stacy - If Stacy is out there, PICK HIM UP IMMEDIATELY! With Sam Bradford out, the Rams offense runs through Stacy and he's been a workhorse. The last two games he's had 26 carries for 134 yards (against a great Seahawks defense), and 27 carries for 127 yards and 2 TDs, as well as 6 catches for 51 yards.Mike James - James who is starting for the injured Doug Martin had a great game against the Seahawks, as he rushed for 158 yards on 28 carries, and also threw a touchdown. With Mike Glennon at QB, the Bucs pass game is pretty much non existent. James should continue to see a ton of carries.Pierre Thomas - Darren Sproles went out last week with a concussion, and Thomas became heavily involved in the pass game. If Sproles can't go on Sunday then add Thomas, especially in a PPR league. He'll get around 10-13 carries and should be good for at least 5 catches.Andre Brown - The Giants have been desperate for a run game all year, and they might finally get it with the return of Andre Brown who will make his 2013 season debut Sunday against the Raiders. Last year through 10 games, Brown rushed for 385 yards (5.3 avg) and 8 touchdowns. Brown will immediately take over as the main back in New York.Rashad Jennings - Surprise, surprise! Darren McFadden is injured again and may be forced to miss Sunday's game with the Giants. Against the Eagles, Jennings ended up rushing for 102 yards and a TD, and added 7 catches for 74 yards. If McFadden is out then Jennings would be in line for the start.WRsDoug Baldwin - Sidney Rice is done for the year, and still no Percy Harvin in sight. Baldwin got the start against the Bucs on Sunday and put up a stat line of 6/75/1. He's a big threat out of the slot. Defenses will try to contain Golden Tate, meaning Baldwin will be open and Wilson will find him.Emmanuel Sanders - Sanders has been targeted 11 times in each of the last two weeks and has caught 13 balls for 186 yards and a TD in that time. Big Ben and Sanders are clearly on the same page, so he should continue to get a ton of balls thrown his way.Riley Cooper - Hard to ignore Cooper after his 135 yards and 3 TDs last week against the Raiders. As long as Foles is under center I think Cooper is a threat to put up big numbers. He's clearly a deep ball threat and he's worth a start if you need him this week.TEsTim Wright - Wright has now scored touchdowns in back to back weeks and has 9 catches for 108 yards in that span. At 6'4, he's a big target for Glennon, especially near the end zone.Coby Fleener - With Reggie Wayne out for the year, Fleener will continue to see his targets increase moving forward. Being college teammates with Luck, means they have the chemistry, so it's only a matter of time before he explodes offensively. He has 10 targets over the last 2 weeks.
