ACTION / REACTION
This is an article from the Oct. 28, 2013 issue
Falcons WR Harry Douglas fills in for both Julio Jones and Roddy White, going for 149 receiving yards and a TD.
With Jones (foot) done for the season and White (ankle and hamstring) day-to-day after missing a week, Douglas is a WR2 for the rest of the year.
Robert Griffin III torches the Bears for almost 300 yards, two TDs; more important, he rushes for 84 yards on 11 carries.
RG3 looked like his old self; he'll be one of the most valuable QBs of the second half. If there's a chance his owner undervalues him, make an offer.
Chris Ivory runs for 104 yards on 34 attempts in the Jets' win over the Pats, while no other N.Y. back gets more than six carries.
Good for the Jets—but their backfield has become a nightmare for fantasy owners. For now, it's unwise to trust Ivory or Bilal Powell.
Dolphins RB Lamar Miller rushes just nine times—to Daniel Thomas's dozen—in a lackluster loss to the Bills.
If you haven't already, write off Miller. This looks like a time-share, and he has single-digit carries in half his games.
Tony Romo's new No. 2 caught six balls, including a TD—bad news for Miles Austin owners, good news for waiver scavengers.
He had his second straight big week, Danny Woodhead and all: 110 yards and a TD. Mathews is an RB2 for the rest of 2013.
Eight catches for 114 yards in his first game since last December? So much for easing him back in; full speed ahead!
Nine carries for 37 yards is proof enough—this offense simply doesn't give him any chance to succeed.
A sad, familiar tale: Once again, he's downgraded to a situational sub due to ineptitude at QB.
His already-low ceiling dropped even farther after he ran for just 39 yards on 11 carries against the Packers. Time to ditch this long shot.
