WR Devery Henderson (New Orleans)Percent owned (ESPN): 1.6%With Lance Moore out and Jimmy Graham playing hurt, Devery Henderson stepped up big time for the Saints, catching 8 passes for 123 yards and a touchdown. Unless the injury situation improves, he might be their #2 option going forward, which would make him startable. At the very least, he’s worth a bench stash.RB William Powell (Arizona)Percent owned (ESPN): 0.1%The Cardinals have lost Beanie Wells and Ryan Williams for the season in back-to-back weeks. William Powell is hardly proven, but he would seem to be the favorite to be the lead back going forward. He was already the 3rd down back and they really like him as a receiver and a blocker and he had a great preseason as a runner to make the roster, leading the league with 249 rushing yards and 3 touchdowns on 42 carries. Look for him to lead a running back committee with change of pace back LaRod Stephens-Howling and former practice squad back Alfonso Smith.RB Alex Green (G...

On Tuesday, Vilma's lawyer, Peter Ginsberg, released a statement on behalf of his client. The statement in full:
"Commissioner Goodell has crafted a "revised...
This defense is bad. There is no way around this fact. One thing I did notice about this game, though, was the extraordinary amount of blitzing Steve Spagunolo dialed up. It worked. Sure the DB's got beat numerous times when put out on an island in man coverage, but guess what? This defense is going to give up huge chunks of yards either way. So you might as well get pressure...
