Week 9 Fill-ins
Is the bye week hitting you hard? How about injuries? How about just plain bad matchups? Here are some guys you can plug-in this weekend.
Jay Cutler – He’s been pretty solid lately (at least 248 yards the past two weeks with 4 TD passes), and facing a weak Detroit secondary.
Jason Campbell – He hasn’t done much lately (only 757 yards passing the past four weeks), but a meeting with the Jets could change that.
J.P. Losman – He’s back. Witness the 82 yard bomb to Lee Evans. Just in time to face Cincinnati.
Rudi Johnson – He should be back. Maybe you can justify your 1st round pick again.
Ryan Grant – Have the Packers finally found their guy? Not sure, but he looked good against Denver. Although, hasn’t everybody?
Jerricho Cotchery – Laveranues Coles will likely miss the Washington game because of concussion. Cotchery will likely be targeted more.
D.J. Hackett – He’s back. At least we hope he is. He could be a solid play against Cleveland. Just pay close attention to this one.
Santana Moss – I’ve been burned by him twice so I don’t have much faith, but he should be able to turn it on against the Jets.
Vernon Davis – He caught six passes for 71 yards and a TD last week. I think he’s safe to play. Knock on wood.
Sebastian Janikowski - He had three FGs vs. Tennessee last week. I expect more of the same against Houston.
Washington – Did someone drop them after allowing 52 to the Patriots? If so grab em. They are still a good defense, and get to face Kellen Clemens and the Jets.
Oakland – Things would have to be pretty bad, but they have a decent matchup against Houston (minus a slew of weapons) at home.
There you have it. If you have any other suggestions, please leave a comment.
