1. Jonathan Dwyer, RB, Steelers - The Steelers have talked a good game when it came to committing to a power running game, but they've yet to do it. However, Jonathan Dwyer is the type of back who gives them the thump they are looking for. Over his last two, Dwyer has tallied 17 carries for 122 and 17 carries for 107. The Steelers have matchups coming against the Chiefs and Ravens which should allow for even more yardage on the ground.
2. Danny Amendola, WR, Rams - Despite an injury that looked like it would sideline him for the rest of the seasons, Amendola is scheduled to return to the Rams lineup after their week 9 BYE week. Amendola has been Sam Bradford's favorite target since the two laid eyes on each other and that bromance should continue when Amendola gets back into the lineup.
3. Titus Young, WR, Lions - After one of the more disappointing starts for a wide receiver, Young has started to bounce-back in a big way. Nate Burleson is out for the year and Calvin Johnson continues to be hounded with double team after double team. Over his last two games, Young has grabbed 15 catches for 181 yards and 2 TDs.
4. Daniel Thomas, RB, Dolphins - Thomas has scored in 3 of his last 4 games and the Dolphins have some outstanding matchups coming up for their running backs against the likes of the Colts, Titans and Bills. The Dolphins offense is proving to be more potent than expected and Thomas will continue to get carries and tries in the redzone.
5. Cecil Shorts, WR, Jaguars - It's time for me to finally give Cecil Shorts the nod on this list. I've waited and waited, but he's clearly earning his stripes. Over his first 7 games, Shorts has 4 games over 74 yards receiving and he has the type of electrifying speed that can turn even short passes into long touchdowns. With the Jaguars playing from behind so frequently, Shorts should continue to be a factor moving forward.
6. Santana Moss, WR, Redskins - Santana Moss is certainly worth a look, but don't go overboard with where you value him. Despite notching 4 TDs over his last 4 games, Moss is still a relatively low catch/target WR. With Pierre Garcon having a hard time coming back from injury, Moss' value has gone up, but he has more upside in standard leagues than in PPR leagues.
7. Jacquizz Rodgers, RB, Falcons - Desperate for a RB? Quizz could be a nice addition for owners in PPR league. After getting off to a terribly slow start on the ground, Rodgers had 8 carries for 60 yards and 5 catches last week against the Eagles. It is starting to feel like the Falcons are going to transition Michael Turner into more of a pile moving role.
8. Brandon LaFell, WR, Panthers - LaFell is a player that you would be "betting on the come" with. If you pick him up, just know that he had a stretch where he was non-existent, but he has come on a little bit as of late and his fortunes will obviously be tied to Cam Newton's play. LaFell does have matchups against two of the worst fantasy defenses against the pass coming up in Washington this week and Tampa in two weeks.
9. Ryan Broyles, WR, Lions - With Nate Burleson out, the Lions have started to utilize rookie Broyles more frequently in their offense. As noted previously, teams will not let Calvin Johnson beat them so Broyles is going to continue to see time on the field and targets. Over his last two games, Broyles has 6 catches for 88 yards and 2 TDs.
10. San Diego Chargers Defense - The Chargers could very well be available in your league and this would be a good week to grab them if you are only looking for a one week substitute. The Chargers take on the Chiefs who are an absolute mess on offense and who have yielded the greatest amount of fantasy points to fantasy defenses of any team in the league.
