Knile Davis, RB, Kansas City Chiefs: 3% owned in Yahoo! leagues

– 40.90 points thus far

– Davis spelled Charles in the fourth quarter and could do so again in weeks sixteen and seventeen as the Chiefs are firmly in the playoffs.

C.J. Anderson, RB, Denver Broncos: 1% owned in Yahoo! leagues

– 3.80 points thus far

– The Broncos are firmly atop the AFC West and Knowshon Moreno has been run hard this season. Montee Ball is first inline to replace him, but he could be rested as well.

Robert Turbin, RB, Seattle Seahawks: 2% owned in Yahoo! leagues

– 31.10 points thus far

– Seattle has run away with the NFC and don’t have anything to worry about until the semi-final game. Marshawn Lynch will be too valuable for them to lose before that, meaning Turbin will get the bulk of the load.

Jacob Tamme, TE, Denver Broncos: 14% owned in Yahoo! leagues

– 19.30 points thus far

Julius Thomas is sure to be given some more time to rest his previous injury. Tamme replaced him last time and did so admirably. He could be Peyton Manning‘s guy again down the stretch.

Kenbrell Thompkins, WR, New England Patriots: 30% owned in Yahoo! leagues

– 70.60 points thus far

– Julian Edleman and Danny Amendola are coming off big weeks but the Pats remain without Rob Gronkowski and Amendola has had another injury riddled season, Thompkins could be in for a big workload in the final two weeks to preserve their top receiver.

Darrius Heyward-Bey, WR, Indianapolis Colts: 19% owned in Yahoo! leagues

– 41.50 points thus far

– DHB has been one of the league’s most disappointing players this season. He hasn’t been to establish himself in the Colts pass heavy offense at all. That said, they’ve clinched the division and could be inclined to rest TY Hilton.
