Injury fill-in fodder: worth it?

Thomas Rawls

I don't particularly love Rawls (just yet). His line isn't performing, and his touchdown outlook is poor - Marshawn Lynch is a hammer who finds the end zone regardless of situation, but the opportunities just aren't there for Rawls. He's not a bad cash play due to strong salary relief, but just projecting Lynch's production is unwise.

Kamar Aiken

The Ravens' de facto No. 1, Aiken's outlook isn't clear - he's got a wide range of possibilities. He's seen heavy usage over the last two weeks, and became the go-to when Steve Smith left Week 4 early. Expect solid PPR value but unpredictability in terms of playmaking, landing him as a solid cash prospect but a middling GPP target. Especially since our own Phil Alexander told me to expect fairly wide ownership (around 10%) for the week.

Jamison Crowder

I'm loving Crowder in my GPPs, where he's a near-lock to return triple value or beyond while DeSean Jackson sits again. Crowder had caught 13 balls over the last two weeks, drawing an impressive three red zone targets in the process (including one from inside the five). A line around 7-65-1 looks very doable in a likely shootout his team will be losing all day.
