Bye weeks and injuries are having major effects on everyone’s fantasy team, so sleepers and hidden gems are more important than ever this week. So here’s a few guys that are probably not owned in your league that you can grab right now as last minute replacements.â†µ
Demarco Murray & Tashard Choice. Felix Jones is hurt and will miss today’s game for the Cowboys which means that Choice and Murray will split carries. Everyone seems hyped up about the rookie Murray, but don’t be surprised if the Cowboys rely more on the veteran who understands the blocking schemes better. These guys are both still available in better than 80% of Yahoo! leagues.â†µ
Earnest Graham. Despite the fact that he had a nice game last week starting in place of LaGarette Blount, he’s still available in 30% of Yahoo leauges.â†µ
Dave Rayner. Yes a kicker! Sebastian Janikowski is having a nice fantasy year, but it seems as though he’ll be out today. So the Raiders signed Dave Rayner, who should be available in virtually all leagues. With the Raiders taking on the awful Chiefs defense, he should get a good amount of opportunities. KC has given up the 8th most fantasy points to kickers so far this season. So if your kicker is on a bye or you own Janikowski, Rayner will probably be a nice little stop gap.
