2010 Get ‘em or Don’t Sweat ‘em – Week 11

Nov 15, 2010

There were some unusual heroes on Sunday. There always are. Let’s take a look at them and see if they are worthy of your fantasy rosters.
.
QBs
Shaun Hill, Detroit Lion
s
Hill had another strong game throwing for 323 yards and a score. He’s not as obvious a selection with the bye weeks gone, but he does offer good depth.
Ruling:  Get ‘em.
.
Mark Sanchez, New York Jets
Sanchez survived an injury scare to throw for 299 yards and 2 TDs. He also ran one in. With Houston on deck, he’s not a bad play.
Ruling:  Get ‘em.
.
Matt Cassel, Kansas City Chiefs
Cassel torched the Broncos for 469 yards and 4 TDs. He has 12 touchdown passes in his past five games. With Arizona and Seattle coming up, he could continue to roll.
Ruling:  Get ‘em.
.
Jon Kitna, Dallas Cowboys
Jason Garrett and Jon Kitna had the Cowboys offense humming against the Giants. He threw for 327 yards and 3 TDs. More importantly, he got gamebreakers Dez Bryant and Felix Jones heavily involved. I like his prospects going forward.
Ruling:  Get ‘em.
.
Matt Hasselbeck, Seattle Seahawks
Hasselbeck threw for 333 yards and a score. They were playing the Cardinals though, who made Brett Favre look like the Hall of Famer he is. I wouldn’t bank on Hasselbeck putting up big games going forward, even if he is able to play through the broken bone on his non-throwing wrist.
Ruling:  Don’t Sweat ‘em.
.
Derek Anderson, Arizona Cardinals
DA threw for 322 yards and a TD. They are a bad team, and he has good weapons so I can see some interest, but look elsewhere.
Ruling:  Don’t Sweat ‘em.
.
Troy Smith, San Francisco 49ers
Smith threw for 356 yards and a TD. Great game, but I’m not ready to rely on him in one QB leagues.
Ruling:  Don’t Sweat ‘em.
.
RBs
Javarris James, Indianapolis Colts
James ran for 26 yards and a score. The cavalry, namely Joseph Addai, is supposed to get healthy soon, making James obsolete.
Ruling:  Don’t Sweat ‘em.
.
Mike Goodson, Carolina Panthers
Goodson ran for 100 yards on 23 carries. He added three catches for 13 yards. DeAngelo Williams and Jonathan Stewart should return next week. Goodson will still get some looks, but this was likely the last week he’ll be a fantasy option.
Ruling:  Don’t Sweat ‘em.
.
Cadillac Williams, Tampa Bay Buccaneers
Cadillac ran for 62 yards and a score. He added 23 yards on two catches. He’s just a backup with a cool name at this point.
Ruling:  Don’t Sweat ‘em.

.

WRs
Arrelious Benn, Tampa Bay Buccaneers
Benn caught two passes for 29 yards and a touchdown. It was the second straight week he scored, but he’s not getting targeted enough for fantasy purposes.
Ruling:  Don’t Sweat ‘em.
.
Kevin Walter, Houston Texans
Walter caught six passes for 90 yards and a score. He hadn’t done much since opening the season with a touchdown in the first three games. He has a tough schedule ahead, which diminishes his fantasy value, but he still is a good bench option.
Ruling:  Get ‘em.
.
Mike Thomas, Jacksonville Jaguars
We were high on Thomas going into the game, and he delivered. He had eight catches for 149 yards, including the 50 yard game-winner. He also ran for 18 yards. He should be owned in most fantasy leagues.
Ruling:  Get ‘em.
.
Chris Chambers, Kansas City Chiefs
Chambers caught four passes for 36 yards and a TD. He hasn’t done much on the year, and I don’t expect him to finish strong.
Ruling:  Don’t Sweat ‘em.
.
Early Doucet, Arizona Cardinals
Doucet caught six passes for 71 yards and a touchdown. He hasn’t done much this season, so I wouldn’t run out and grab him just yet.
Ruling:  Don’t Sweat ‘em.
.
TEs
Greg Olsen, Chicago Bears
He’s not having a banner year, but Olsen has scored in consecutive weeks. With Detroit, Minnesota, and New England scheduled in Weeks 13-15, he’s a good player to nab.
Ruling:  Get ‘em.
.
Benjamin Watson, Cleveland Browns
Watson continued his trend of playing well against aggressive defenses. His two best games have come against Baltimore and Pittsburgh. He caught five passes for 74 yards against the Jets. Though Jacksonville isn’t a tough defensive unit, he still could put together a decent game next week.
Ruling:  Get ‘em.
.
Anthony Fasano, Miami Dolphins
Fasano caught five passes for 107 yards and a touchdown. With the bye weeks past us, there’s no reason to use him.
Ruling:  Don’t Sweat ‘em.
.
Zach Miller, Jacksonville Jaguars
With the Raiders’ Zach Miller on bye, the Jaguars version played like him. He caught four passes for 79 yards and a score. Only Oakland’s version should be owned.
Ruling:  Don’t Sweat ‘em.
.
Kevin Boss, New York Giants
Boss caught four passes for 67 yards and a touchdown. It was his second straight game with a score. Still, I’m not ready to pencil him into a fantasy lineup.
Ruling:  Don’t Sweat ‘em.
.
Rob Gronkowski, New England Patriots
Gronkowski had his coming out party catching five passes for 72 yards and 3 TDs. Aaron Hernandez did not catch a ball. He’s been more active in recent weeks and has 6 TDs on the year. Without a deep game, Brady could look to the tight ends more frequently. Given Gronkowki’s ability in the red zone, he may be worth a look.
Ruling:  Get ‘em.
