It is getting to that time where out of necessity good players are dropped because of injury or bye week and then forgotten. That’s okay more for us.
LEIGHTON VANDER ESCH, DALLAS COWBOYS
The main reason that Vander Esch is available is his propensity to be injured…a lot. But he is now not injured and so viable…well sort of. He did leave last week’s game for a bit and then when the game was clearly out of reach sat out the fourth quarter.

This week he will play the Washington Football Team, a divisional game for a team that is surprisingly still in the hunt in their division. Vander Esch has the talent and should be on the field for the whole game.
NICK KWIATKOSKI, LAS VEGAS RAIDERS
Here is another quality linebacker sidelined on fantasy rosters because of injuries and a bye week. He is healthy and their bye week is over. For the first five weeks of the season he was Pro Football Focus’ number eight linebacker.
This week he has to go against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, the Buccaneers run the ball 25.8 times a game.
FRANK CLARK, DEFENSIVE END, KANSAS CITY CHIEFS
Clark is under-owned because he has been under playing. He has just one tackle in the past two games. That should change this week in the Chiefs meeting with the Denver Broncos.
The Broncos offensive line has a pass blocking grade of 51.8, which is 31st in the NFL. They have allowed their quarterback to be under pressure on 33.9% of dropbacks, which is the highest mark in the league.
MARIO ADDISON, DEFENSIVE END, BUFFALO BILLS
Addison enters Week 7 with a 75.5 pass rush grade from Pro Football Focus. This week he will match-up against the New York Jets who have allowed the second most pressures (95) and the have the second highest pressure rate (37.9%) this season.
CARLTON DAVIS, TAMPA BAY BUCCANEERS
There is no reason Davis should not be rostered much higher. He in tied for first in the NFL in interceptions, tied for first in passes defended, and averages 3.9 solo tackles a game.
JANORIS JENKINS, NEW ORLEANS SAINTS
Jenkins has missed the last two games due to a shoulder injury, which has substantially hurt the Saints and our fantasy teams. All indications are that he is back and ready to rumble. For the games he has played, Jenkins has 15 solo tackles one interception and two passes defended.
This week the Saints will play Teddy Bridgewater led Carolina Panthers. Bridgewater has six touchdowns and five interceptions while averaging 34.3 passing attempts per game.
