Running Back

Bilal Powell – Jets: Powell stepped in for the injured Forte in Week 14 and had a big game. He rushed for 145 yards on 29 carries and caught 5 passes for 34 yards, while finding the pay dirt twice. If Forte is forced to miss any time due to the knee injury, Powell will be in line for a heavy workload and would instantly be an asset to fantasy owners.
Kenneth Farrow – Chargers: Farrow stepped in after Melvin Gordon was knocked out of the game and played most of the offensive snaps. He finished the day with 55 rushing yards on 16 carries and six receptions for 23 yards. He and Ronnie Hillman are expected to share the duties if Gordon is forced to miss next game, but Farrow has the most fantasy appeal of the two.
Others to consider: Dwayne Washington – Lions, Alfred Morris – Cowboys, Justin Forsett - Broncos

Wide Receiver

Dontrelle Inman – Chargers: Since Week 7, Inman is averaging seven targets per game. He has caught five or more passes in four of his last five games, while scoring a touchdown in three consecutive games. He has been a steady contributor in recent weeks and has a solidified role on this offense. The Chargers have games against the Raiders and Browns the next two weeks, both defenses that have struggled against the pass.
Marqise Lee – Jaguars: Since Week 9, Lee is averaging 7.5 targets per game and leads the Jaguars receivers in receiving yards. During that stretch, he is averaging four receptions and 61.7 receiving yards per game, while scoring two touchdowns. He should remain heavily involved down the stretch and should be added in all leagues.
Others to consider: Pierre Garcon – Redskins, Brandon LaFell – Bengals, Adam Thielen – Vikings, Cameron Meredith – Bears, Malcolm Mitchell – Patriots

Tight End

Charles Clay – Bills: Clay caught his first touchdown of the season in Week 14, however, he had not been much of a factor since Week 6. That being said, the Bills play the Browns this upcoming week a defense that is giving up the most fantasy points per game to opposing tight ends. They have given up 11 touchdowns to the position.
Others to consider: Jermaine Gresham - Cardinals
