Lamar Miller MIA RB - I know Miami has three solid running backs on the roster, but Joe Philbin ran a Packers offense last year that loved to run and were using some pretty bad backs a year ago. Add to that the fact that Reggie Bush lines up wide from time to time in the wildcat, and Daniel Thomas has only been getting about 10 touches a game over his past 15 games. Miller is a bowling ball out of UMiami at 5'10" 220 and has 19 carries for 113 yards and a score over the past two weeks. Grab Miller if you are in a deeper league and need a bye week fill in at your flex spot.
Carson Palmer QB Oak - Palmer has quietly looked pretty good over the past three weeks, compiling 879 yards and five scores vs. some pretty tough defenses (PIT, MIA, SD). Give Palmer a call if you have a week 4 bye at QB, as they face a Denver team that has given up 233 yards/game and 8 passing TD's already. Carson has a good enough team around him to generate some offense in Oakland. Don't forget that Palmer is just a half a season removed from a 4000yd 26td campaign with Cincinnati, and is owned in just 49% of leagues.
Heath Miller TE Pit - Big Ben has openly stated that he is trying to get Miller into the pro bowl this season. That's a tall order for a guy who plays in a league that features Gronk, Gates, and Hernandez at TE to name a few. But Miller, who has always been reliably consistent, seems to have developed a rapport with Roethlisberger that has risen to a new level. Through three games, Miller has 15 catches and 4 scores on a Pittsburgh team that has Mike Wallace, Antonio Brown, and Emmanuel Sanders at the receiver positions. Look and see if Heath is available - he's only owned in 42% of Y! leagues - and grab him if you're a starting guys like Jermaine Gresham, Owen Daniels, Dustin Keller, or Coby Fleener.
Jeremy Kerley WR NYJ - Kerley can be sneakily useful as a 4th or 5th receiver in deeper leagues, or as a bye week fill in on a team in a league with two flex spots. The second-year, 5'9", fifth round pick out of TCU offers the hands and speed that a guy like Rex Ryan drools over. Kerley is slowly gaining the trust of Mark Sanchez, as he has put up more than 45 yards in all three games thus far, and has scored in two of them. Grab the 12% Y! owned receiver as he seems to be slowly becoming the real deal in NY.
Jackie Battle RB SD - I said about a week ago that Battle could put up some points. After putting up 55 yards on 3 carries last week as Ryan Matthews returned, Battle seemed to take a backseat in the SD run game. But coach Norv Turner has said that he plans on using another back at the goal line in an effort to reduce Matthews' fumble problems. That other back figures to be Battle - a 6'2" 240lb beast - who already has well over 100 yards and 2 scores in just two games thus far. This could turn into a Le'Ron McClain ca. 2008 type of situation. Expect at least 6-8 scores and 500 yards or so out of Battle the rest of the way. That's not a bad bet for points in a pinch.
James Jones WR GB - If an owner dropped the 30% owned Jones, or he is available in your league, take a long look at Mr. 5 for 55. With Aaron Rodgers leading the way, you could certainly do worse for your bye-week-flex spot than a nearly guaranteed 7 or 8 points week in and week out in PPR leagues. Take a look at Jones, even in 10 team leagues as a depth receiver or for your bye weeks. I like him more than 68% Y! owned fellow GB receiver Randall Cobb for consistent points, and the Pack play some easy teams in the coming weeks.
