Week 7: Watch List

Here is a list of players who have the potential to be worth a roster spot, but are likely not quite there yet. Keep an eye on them in week 7 to see how they perform, though, and be the first to grab them if they turn into players:

RB Ryan Torain (DEN): The rookie RB from Denver is expected to resume practicing this week, after missing the beginning of the season with a broken arm. Coach Mike Shanahan was very high on Torain going into the year, and many think he could be the full-time starter as soon as week 10.

RB Cedric Benson (CIN): It is likely that Benson will take over for Chris Perry as the starting RB in Cincinnati. Although the Bengals offense is nothing to get excited about, Benson will be a starting RB and might be worth a roster spot in 12-team leagues. Keep an eye on him to see how well he performs with his new team after being out of football for a couple months.

WR Donnie Avery (STL): Avery has played well lately, and has a pretty good matchup this week against a Cowboys defense that can be beat through the air. And given the likelihood that St. Louis will be playing from behind, Avery should get plenty of opportunities. The Rams are surprisingly 1-0 under new coach Jim Haslett, so watch Avery to see how they work him into the offense.

WR Malcom Floyd (SD): I thought Craig Davis would get more looks with Chambers out, but it turned out to be Malcom Floyd who was the main beneficiary. Last week, he had 3 catches for 75 yards and a TD. With Chambers expected to miss another game (at least), keep an eye on Floyd to see if last week was a fluke or if he is working his way towards being a legitimate fantasy WR.
