Week 11 has come and gone and the landscape around fantasy football is once again changing. There were significant injuries to Justin Forsett, who was dealt a broken arm, and the leading running back in fantasy, Devonta Freeman, who suffered a concussion. Peyton Manning’s plantar fasciitis took hold and is not letting the legend finish out his career in the fashion he may have wanted. But with everything changing, that means some doors were opened for players to have bigger roles down the home stretch of the season.

Tevin Coleman, running back, AtlantaTevin Coleman, running back, Atlanta — Replacing Devonta Freeman will not be an easy task, but there is an opportunity for Coleman to prove his worth here. In Week 1, he received 20 carries and ran for 80 yards, while in Week 2, he found the end zone.

Brock Osweiler, quarterback, DenverBrock Osweiler, quarterback, Denver — In his Week 11 debut as the Broncos’ starting quarterback, he did not disappoint with 250 yards passing and two end zone strikes. He's mostly just a pick-up for owners of Peyton Manning at this point, but he still holds a little value. — In his Week 11 debut as the Broncos' starting quarterback, he did not disappoint with 250 yards passing and two end zone strikes.

Thomas Rawls, running back, SeattleThomas Rawls, running back, Seattle — He's filling in for Marshawn Lynch, who is dealing with an abdominal issue, but he has tremendous upside as evidenced by his Week 11 performance where he not only found the pay dirt twice, but rushed the ball for an astounding 209 yards. He's still only owned in 37 percent of leagues and should be picked up in all formats. — He's filling in for Marshawn Lynch, who is dealing with an abdominal issue, but he has tremendous upside as evidenced by his Week 11 performance where he not only found the pay dirt twice, but rushed the ball for an astounding 209 yards.

J.J. Nelson, wide receiver, ArizonaJ.J. Nelson, wide receiver, Arizona — Nobody ever heard of this guy until Week 11 when he went off for 142 receiving yards and a touchdown. Maybe this will get quarterback Carson Palmer to look his way a bit more often. — Nobody ever heard of this guy until Week 11 when he went off for 142 receiving yards and a touchdown.

DeSean Jackson, wide receiver, WashingtonDeSean Jackson, wide receiver, Washington — Even though he had one touchdown on 87 yards receiving in Week 11, I believe he is still firmly planted in the drop category.
