Top 5 Free Agents
1) Ronnie Hillman DEN RB – 59 Total Yards 0 TD
With Willis McGahee going down for at least 6 weeks, Ronnie Hillman should take over as the feature back in Denver. Should produce similar numbers to what McGahee was producing.
2) Jalen Parmele JAC RB – 83 Total yards 0 TD
Jalen Parmele pushed Rashard Jennings to the wayside and became the feature back until Maurice Jones-Drew comes back. He has a nice remaining schedule.
3) Bryce Brown PHI RB – 35 Total yards 0 TD
In the event that LeSean McCoy can’t start due to his concussion last week, Bryce Brown will see the bulk of the carries. The only downside is the Eagles play Monday, which could be enough time for McCoy to recover.
4) Colin Kaepernick SF QB – 243 Passing Yards 2 TD/ Chad Henne JAC QB – 354 Passing Yards 4 TD
Both of these quarterbacks seemingly came out of nowhere and produced ridiculous weeks against two of the league’s top defenses. Right now they both seem to be the starters, but that could change at any moment.
5) Justin Blackmon JAC WR – 236 Receiving yards 1 TD
Three Jaguars on this list seem a little extreme, but after last week’s 43 point performance they could be hot finds. The biggest factor to add Blackmon is the fact that he clearly looks to be Henne’s number one target.
3 Trends To Watch
1). As injuries start to pile up, having backups for your running backs becomes even more important. With no more byes, there is no need to waste roster spots.
2). I would be pretty excited if I was an Andre Johnson owner right now. He finally looks healthy and has a very nice remaining schedule. Could lead to big things moving forward.
3). Beanie Wells looks to finally be coming off the snide. Could be a interesting add as the Cardinals’ running back situation without him has been meh at best.
