My fellow DFS Degenerates – Ouch, DAGGER, and WTF?! If you said any of those things after week 2, chances are that you lost a significant player to injury. Take a look at these players as a solid replacement to fill your void

Dion Lewis-RB/Patriots

Even with Blount returning from suspension, that couldn’t slow down Lewis’ FF production. Whether it’s rushing or receiving Lewis has been getting his touches. He totaled 100+ yards including 6 receptions in week 2. Look for him to be the lead running at least for a few more weeks. Not to mention….he is playing against the Jags this week.


Travis Benjamin-WR/Browns

Here is a cheaper version of Mike Wallace. Maybe more productive too? Benjamin is kind of a one-trick-pony but he has scored 4 tds this season already. With his deep speed stretching the defense, the Browns are much more effective when getting him the ball. The Browns O will be facing a injury riddled Oakland secondary this week.

Derek Carr-QB/Raiders

Carr is showing continued improvement along with confidence in WR Amari Cooper. Carr has passed for over 400 yards and 3 tds this season. He and Cooper are on the same page and should continue to grow together.
