There is little available at this point in terms of adding a possible starter, but if you made it this far and are desperate in a PPR league, Chris Thompson (WAS @ CHI) could help a little in a plus matchup.  With Washington playing from behind on Monday Night Football, Robert Kelley was limited to just 8 carries while Thompson caught 5 of his 7 targets.

It would be wise to just ignore the Detroit Lions backfield (Theo Riddick, Dwayne Washington , Zach Zenner) in a tough matchup with the Dallas Cowboys.

Jeremy Kerley (SF vs LA), Adam Thielen (MIN @ GB) and Mohamed Sanu/Aldrick Robinson(ATL @ CAR if Julio does not play) all have solid matchups for those of you in deeper leagues that need a WR3/FLEX option.

You might want to avoid Jeremy Maclin (KC vs DEN), Will Fuller (HOU vs CIN) and Corey Coleman (CLE vs SD).

If you don't have Vernon Davis or Hunter Henry, but were planning on starting Jordan Reed or Antonio Gates, you better have a backup plan in mind!  Charles Clay (BUF vs MIA) is a very risky play, despite his recent success.  Dennis Pitta (BAL @ PIT) seems like a safe, yet boring option.

If there are few to no options left, target Bears TE Daniel Brown.  The Redskins have been torched by the position lately.
