The good news for Rob Gronkowski and his owners: His knee injury isn't as bad as originally thought. The bad news: He apparently will miss at least one game. Enter Chandler. He has touchdowns in two of the last three weeks, including a 58-yard output against the Broncos. He gets a favorable matchup this week against a weak Philadelphia defense, and is only 9 percent owned in Yahoo leagues.
Yes, it would have seemed laughable in September, but he makes sense if you're thin at quarterback. His New Orleans matchup at home in two weeks is favorable. He is 43 percent owned in Yahoo leagues.
Another formerly unheard-of player who now has fantasy relevance as injuries take their toll on the San Diego offense. Inman picked up 65 yards and a touchdown last week. The other (and harder to obtain on the waiver wire) Charger WR option is Stevie Johnson.
In most leagues, it's too late to snag the Ravens running back. But he is clearly their go-to back with Justin Forsett injured. If you want to gamble on his backup, look at Terrance West. He ripped off a couple nice runs Monday night and could find the end zone in the last month of the season.
His eruption against the Seahawks on Sunday (201 yards and a touchdown) is baffling considering it was similar to his production for the entire season up to that point. He is definitely worth a flyer, but his big game seems more like an anomaly than a sign of things to come the rest of the year. But with defenses focusing on Antonio Brown and Martavis Bryant, he will continue to get looks.
The Miami rookie wideout has not lived up to the hype, but it's still not too late. He had 80 yards and a touchdown in Miami's blowout loss to the New York Jets, and look for the Dolphins to get their young talent as many reps in the final month of the season as they get ready for 2016. And if the Dolphins keep getting blown out, that opens up the door to garbage time points.
