The injuries continue to pile up, and it’s tough to know which NFL replacements at wide receiver and running back are the real deal. Here is a quick round up of five players worth finding and adding this week in all fantasy football leagues:
Jamaal Williams, RB, Packers
It seems like 2016 all over again in Green Bay. Last year, the team pretty much ended the year without a running back — and eventually turned Ty Montgomery into one. Well, after losing Aaron Jones for the year, Montgomgery could be unable to play against the Ravens due to a rib injury. If he can’t play, it will be Jamaal Williams who gets touches at in the starting role. He’s worth finding and stashing just in case on teams that need some running back depth.
Samaje Perine, RB, Redskins
Just like Green Bay, Washington is also bleeding running backs. After losing Rob Kelley for what could be the rest of the season, first team reps appear to be headed Perine’s way. He is worth adding. The Redskins also added Byron Marshall to the roster but he’ll likely come along slowly and start on the bench.
Dede Westbrook, WR, Jaguars
Jags head coach Doug Marrone said that Westbrook would make his debut against the Browns — a better potential debut we cannot think of. With Allen Hurns’ ankle injury sidelining him in Week 11, Westbrook could make a big impact in his first game. Add him if you need wide receiving help.
Marquise Goodwin, WR, 49ers
There aren’t many Niners’ players worth rostering anymore but agter his 87-yard touchdown last week, and 10 targets in two games since the loss of Pierre Garcon, Goodwin is worth adding if your team needs some help at wideout.
Martavis Bryant, WR, Steelers
Bryant has had a weird season, starting as the Steelers No. 2 receiver and talking his way onto the bench. He was back in the mix last week, and even after the emegrence of JuJu Smith-Shuster, Bryant is worth adding in the many leagues he is available on the bench. He offers high upside.
