15
Marshawn Lynch
SEA

Hard to justify resting him until Week 16

WW: Peterson may try to play this weekend, but if he can't, Toby Gerhart, if he can overcome a hamstring injury of his own, will carry the Vikings load again.

WW: Lamar Miller's concussion may keep him out. Daniel Thomas would replace him. He looked healthy after a bum ankle jeopardized his season not one week ago, making some hard cuts in nasty weather.

WW: Willis McGahee's concussion should open up more time for Chris Ogbonnaya and Fozzy Whittaker.

Darren Sproles was the victim of game plan once again with just four utilizations. The New Orleans Saints took control in the second quarter and leaned on Mark Ingram -- well, mainly Marques Colston and Jimmy Graham. Sproles remains a volatile play at the flex spot.
