Matej Vydra returns to the Rams lineup to lead the attack, having been on the bench for the last three games in a row.
The Czech forward replaces Marcus Olsson, who misses out with a knee injury, in the first team.
Rowett has also made a change among his substitutes in the absence of Olsson, adding Ikechi Anya to the bench after he recovered from a calf problem.
Defender Matt Targett passed a late fitness test to retain his place in the first XI, but the game comes too soon for Sheyi Ojo, who is still recovering from the knock he suffered against Birmingham City last weekend.
Former Derby man Cyrus Christie has been named on the Fulham bench.
Derby County: Carson; Keogh, Davies, Forsyth; Wisdom, Huddlestone, Johnson, Weimann; Vydra, Lawrence; Jerome
