There were some unusual heroes this week. There always are. Let’s take a look at them and see if they are worthy of your fantasy rosters.
.
Mike Glennon, QB, Tampa Bay Buccaneers 
Glennon threw for 302 yards and a pair of touchdowns against the Pittsburgh Steelers. He’s not a great second fantasy quarterback, but he should make Vincent Jackson and Mike Evans solid plays.
Ruling: Don’t Sweat ‘em.
.
Ka’Deem Carey, RB, Chicago Bears
Carey had 72 yards on 14 carries against the Green Bay Packers for an average of 5.1 yards per carry. If Matt Forte ever goes down you’ll want to snatch Carey up quickly. Until then he’s not worth a roster spot.
Ruling: Don’t Sweat ‘em.
.
Jerick McKinnon, RB, Minnesota Vikings
McKinnon ran for 135 yards on 18 carries for a 7.5 ypc against the Atlanta Falcons. He also had 17 receiving yards. He’s worth a look in deeper leagues.
Ruling: Get ‘em.
.
Antone Smith, RB, Atlanta Falcons
Smith had 62 yards and a touchdown against the Vikings giving him 112 yards and a pair of scores in just eight carries over the past two weeks. If he can get more carries he’d be worth a look.
Ruling: Don’t Sweat ‘em.
.
Andre Holmes, WR, Oakland Raiders
Holmes caught five of 12 targets for 74 yards and a touchdown against the Miami Dolphins. He had the same number of yards entering the game. Despite doubling his yard total, Holmes is not worth a look.
Ruling: Don’t Sweat ‘em.
.
Louis Murhpy, WR, Tampa Bay Buccaneers
Murphy caught six of 11 targets for 99 yards against the Steelers. Look elsewhere.
Ruling: Don’t Sweat ‘em.
.
Jeremy Ross, WR, Detroit Lions
Ross caught both of his targets for 65 yards and a touchdown against the New York Jets. He should not be on your radar.
Ruling: Don’t Sweat ‘em.
.
Eddie Royal, WR, San Diego Chargers
Royal caught five of seven targets for 105 yards and a pair of touchdown against the Jacksonville Jaguars. It’s his second straight week with multiple scores.
Ruling: Get ‘em.
.
Mike Williams, WR, Buffalo Bills
Williams caught two of six targets for 84 yards and a touchdown against the Houston Texans. 80 yards came on one catch and Williams entered the game with just 50 yards.
Ruling: Don’t Sweat ‘em.
.
Jarius Wright, WR, Minnesota Vikings
Wright caught eight of 10 targets for 132 yards against the Falcons. He had done little up to this point.
Ruling:  Don’t Sweat ‘em.
