Despite controversial final play, back in fantasy dominance
  • Welker missing time would also benefit Julius Thomas if he weren't nursing a knee strain. He's day-to-day. Joel Dreessen would step in if Thomas can't go but isn't worth fantasy attention in the majority of setups.
  • Ladarius Green's big-play ability is stealing some thunder from the San Diego Chargers' Antonio Gates, despite Gates' heavy target advantage in the last two weeks at 14 to 6. This may start capping Gates' ability to post TE1 numbers, especially since the Bolts' lagging passing game may force their hand to use Green more often. It's not worth moving on Green in most games yet, but he could be a late-season dice roll in deeps.
  • McGloin also included Mychal Rivera in the Raiders' passing game. McGloin isn't meek when it comes to downfield strength, but his into-the-fire situation could mean he favors Rivera for now, pushing him into TE2 utility.
