RB Andre Brown has a spectacular 2013 debut, running for 115 yards and a TD in the Giants' win over the Raiders.
... And that against the NFL's No. 6 run defense. As the answer to New York's backfield woes, Brown is a solid RB2.
Carolina's D shuts down the host 49ers, forcing two turnovers and sacking Colin Kaepernick six times in a win.
Carolina has 21 takeaways and 29 sacks (8½ by DE Charles Johnson, left). No question, this is an elite fantasy D.
With two more touchdowns (and 102 receiving yards) he now has seven scores on the year—all with Nick Foles at quarterback.
Starting in place of the injured Kyle Rudolph, he caught seven balls for 98 yards and a TD. He's a low-end TE1 when he starts.
Another fill-in who could provide cheap help, the 2012 UFA subbed for Jermichael Finley and hauled in a TD in his first NFL start.
Eleven yards on nine carries?! You can't trust the vet (although the off-the-rails Falcons aren't helping him much).
It was disheartening to see him go 11 of 26 for just 122 yards and an INT, with no TDs. Henceforth he's a QB2 at best.
He finally got a chance to shine with starter Jermaine Gresham injured and ... had just three catches for 55 yards. Walk on by.
