T.J. Duckett, RB (DET): With Kevin Jones injured -- again -- and out of the picture, former first-round pick T.J. Duckett is set to get the full set of carries. Last week, that resulted in 102 rushing yards and a touchdown. This week the Lions face the Green Bay Packers, who will likely be resting a few players since they have nothing to play for. Duckett should be in for a decent day.

Clifton Dawson, RB (IND): Maybe he's a better story than fantasy player, but Indianapolis Colts running backs are always valuable. Clifton Dawson has been chasing the NFL dream for a little while, even though he was drafted in the sixth round of the CFL Draft. Last week, Dawson found the end zone after Joseph Addai and Kenton Keith were rested. He should be in line for more carries as the Colts plan to rest their starters even more this year.

Najeh Davenport, RB (PIT): Najeh Davenport is easily one of the most valuable backs on the waiver wire now that Willie Parker has sped off to the injured reserve. Davenport will take most of the carries the rest of the way and considering he totaled 167 yards with two touchdowns last week, he's worth owning and starting, even against the Ravens.

Jabar Gaffney, WR (NE): Even with Randy Moss, Donte Stallworth and Wes Welker around, Jabar Gaffney has proven to be a pesky fantasy wideout. He has 14 receptions for 212 yards over his last three games and has found the end zone in four of his last five outings. He's worth taking a flier on -- the New York Giants don't have a very good secondary.

Cleveland Browns Defense: As Jim Cramer might say, this is a risky play, but the Cleveland Browns defense gets a quarterback who is making his first road start this week. It's fairly simple for Cleveland: stop Frank Gore. If they can do that, the hostile environment should force Shaun Hill into some of the mistakes he was able to avoid at home. With nothing to play for, Hill and the 49ers shouldn't feel too much pressure, but the Browns should be an intense bunch considering their playoff lives are on the line.
