There were some unheralded heroes on Sunday. There always are. Let’s take a look at them and see if they are worthy of your fantasy rosters.

If you lost Jimmy Graham, here are some options.
.
Kirk Cousins, QB, Washington Redskins
Cousins threw for 302 yards and a touchdown. He added a rushing score as well. He’s not a reliable fantasy threat.
Ruling:  Don’t Sweat ‘em.
.
Matt Hasselbeck, QB, Indianapolis Colts
Hasselbeck threw for 315 yards and a pair of touchdowns.  He has solid weapons, but is tough to rely on this time of year.
Ruling:  Don’t Sweat ‘em.
.
Brandon Bolden, RB, New England Patriots
Bolden ran for 11 yards and caught four passes for 84 yards and a touchdown. He should be more involved due to all of the Patriots’ injuries, but he’s a risky play.
Ruling:  Don’t Sweat ‘em.
.
Tevin Coleman, RB, Atlanta Falcons
Coleman ran for 110 yards replacing Devonta Freeman (concussion). He should return to backup duties next week. Coleman is a handcuff. If you own him, don’t drop him until Freeman is cleared.
Ruling:  Don’t Sweat ‘em.
.
David Johnson, RB, Arizona Cardinals
Johnson had 21 yards and a touchdown rushing and two catches for eight yards. With Chris Johnson (knee) and Andre Ellington (foot) banged up, Johnson is one to keep an eye on.
Ruling: Get ‘em.
.
Alfred Morris, RB, Washington Redskins
Morris ran for 78 yards and added 12 receiving yards. If someone dropped him after last week’s performance, grab him. He’s still worth a roster spot.
Ruling:  Get ‘em.
.
Theo Riddick, RB, Detroit Lions
Riddick ran for six yards, but caught five passes for 62 yards and a touchdown. He’s only worth using as a flex play in PPR leagues as Detroit implements a three-headed monster. Ameer Abdullah is the only Lions’ running back to own.
Ruling:  Don’t Sweat ‘em.
.
Spencer Ware, RB, Kansas City Chiefs
Ware ran for 114 yards and a touchdown in place of Charcandrick West (hamstring). He’s worth grabbing in case West can’t go again.
Ruling:  Get ‘em.
.
Doug Baldwin, WR, Seattle Seahawks
Baldwin caught six passes for 145 yards and three touchdowns. He’s definitely worth a roster spot, particularly in PPR leagues. Baldwin will be busy with Jimmy Graham out for the season (knee).
Ruling:  Get ‘em.
.
Cole Beasley, WR, Dallas Cowboys
Beasley caught six passes for 44 yards and a touchdown. He’s not worth adding with Tony Romo out.
Ruling:  Don’t Sweat ‘em.
.
Dontrelle Inman, WR, San Diego Chargers
Inman caught five passes for 65 yards and a touchdown. He faces Denver this week so he’s not a good play, but he’s worth owning.
Ruling:  Get ‘em.
.
Jermaine Kearse, WR, Seattle Seahawks
Kearse caught four passes for 47 yards and a pair of touchdowns. He’s not a consistent option, but he should also see additional looks with Graham out.
Ruling:  Don’t Sweat ‘em.
.
Seth Roberts, WR, Oakland Raiders
Roberts caught six passes for 113 yards and three touchdowns. This was a fluke performance.
Ruling:  Don’t Sweat ‘em.
.
Markus Wheaton, WR, Pittsburgh Steelers
Wheaton went off for nine catches for 201 yards and a touchdown. Amazing performance, but he isn’t a reliable option as he’s typically beyond Brown, Bryant, Williams and Miller in pecking order.
Ruling:  Don’t Sweat ‘em.
.
Cameron Brate, TE, Tampa Bay Buccaneers
Brate caught five passes for 53 yards and a touchdown. It was his second straight game with a score, but I’d look elsewhere.
Ruling:  Don’t Sweat ‘em.
.
Scott Chandler, TE, New England Patriots
Chandler caught five passes for 58 yards and a touchdown. With Gronk banged up, Chandler is worth a look. Brady has to throw to somebody.
.
Ryan Griffin, TE, Houston Texans
Griffin caught four passes for 72 yards and a touchdown. He’s not a fantasy option.
Ruling:  Don’t Sweat ‘em.
.
Vance McDonald, TE, San Francisco 49ers
McDonald caught four passes for 71 yards and a touchdown. It’s his second straight game with a score. McDonald has a nice rapport with Blaine Gabbert, but isn’t a great fantasy option.
Ruling:  Don’t Sweat ‘em.
