Donte has been a  bit of a frustration for potential fantasy owners this season, as he's posted a few monster games, but always follows them up with minuscule performances. It looks as though the winds of change may have finally began to blow Moncrief's way, as he's now solidly out-snapped Hakeem Nicks...
for two straight weeks, and is seeing approximately 50% of the total offensive snaps. His targets should only increase as the season wraps up, and makes for an interesting, but risky wide receiver play. Keep a very close eye on Donte, if he gets 6+ targets this week, we recommend you pick him up if you are in dire need of receiving help. 

Andre Ellington has officially been ruled out for this Sunday's contest(as we predicted), making Marion Grice the next logical back to be used in Arizona. The "Arizona Times" is broadcasting/speculating that fellow team-mate Stephen Taylor will start this Sunday, however we here at the Sportz Guruz think otherwise. Taylor's skill-set is hard to see, and often times he just plods down-field, hoping that his humongous tree-trunk legs are still beneath him. It is not hard to see why we feel that Marion Grice is the real back to own here, as any explosive plays and passing plays will come down to him. Although he comes with a ton of risk due to the running back by committee approach the Cards seem set on taking, his upside cannot be ignored! If you are in desperate need of running back help, look no further then Grice, as he should be able to net you 8+ fantasy points this week. I personally picked him up as a stash play, Ellington could be out awhile!

I want to start by saying Harry Douglas has always been a top-notch receiver, but has always had the unfortunate luck of playing behind people like Julio Jones, Roddy White, and Tony Gonzalez, meaning there just wasn't ever enough targets to go around. We have been given glimpses of Douglas's true pass-catching abilities when superstars Roddy White and Julio Jones have gone down with injuries in the past, and it looks like we are due for another glimpse. Last Sunday White was unable to suit-up due to a lower body ailment(legs), paving the way for Douglas to post a 9-12 for 116 yards stat line, and this week Roddy seems to be headed in the same direction. If White can't play, look for Douglas to be a huge WR play, with a high floor and an even higher ceiling. We are reluctant to pick up and play Harry this week as Atlanta plays on Monday night, and if Roddy does go, you would be screwed! Look to stash Douglas in the hopes that White's injury proves more serious then originally thought.
