As the season progresses it is hard to find those diamonds in the rough or that guy that no one has heard of. This week we are going to examine the plethora of injuries across the league and who the most likely successor is to that starting job as well as highlight some prime matchups as well as surprising performers to this point. This article will also highlight a few long-term and speculative players that could see their value rise over the course of the season.
LB Jamin Davis (WFT vs NO)
It may be a fight to get Davis off the waiver wire as he will likely be one of the most added names this week. The rookie out of Kentucky is slated to see a big jump in playing time with the injury to Jon Bostic and he has all of the tools to produce at an LB1 level. His best game of the season came in his loan start against Buffalo where he ended up with 6 total tackles on 52% of defensive snaps played. Look for him to easily surpass those numbers this week with increased opportunity and playing time.
LB Alec Ogletree (CHI vs LV)
As we quickly start to approach Bye weeks for many clubs it is time to start looking around for guys that have been overlooked. Ogletree had a strong camp and came into the season with high expectations for the Bears. He disappointed through the first three weeks but finally broke out with 10 solos, 2 assists, and a pass defended in week 4. This week he will look to show some consistency against a Las Vegas team that committed to running the ball with Josh Jacobs back. Ogletree is capable of another double-digit tackle performance this week.
