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
Sam Bradford, St. Louis Rams

Bradford had a monster game throwing for 308 yards and three touchdowns against Denver. With Arizona on deck, he’s going to be a popular player in the leagues that he’s available in.
Ruling:  Get ‘em.
.
RBs
Rashad Jennings, Jacksonville Jaguars
Jennings ran for 53 yards and a score on seven carries. If you want to carry a handcuff, he does face Oakland and Indianapolis in Weeks 14 & 15, but it seems pointless unless Maurice Jones-Drew goes down.
Ruling:  Don’t Sweat ‘em.
.
Toby Gerhart, Minnesota Vikings
Gerhart filled in admirably when Adrian Peterson hurt his ankle running for 76 yards and a touchdown. I expect Peterson to return next week so this was likely a one week burst for the rookie.
Ruling:  Don’t Sweat ‘em.
.

WRs
Jordy Nelson, Green Bay Packers
Nelson had a pretty touchdown catch as he caught five passes for 61  yards. He doesn’t do enough to add to your fantasy roster though.
Ruling:  Don’t Sweat ‘em.
.
Davone Bess & Brian Hartline, Miami Dolphins
Both Bess and Hartline stepped it up this week with Brandon Marshall out. Bess caught six passes for 111 yards while Hartline caught four for 75. With Henne under center, they both are decent options to add to fantasy rosters. Of the two, I prefer Bess.
Ruling:  Get ‘em Both.
.
Jacoby Ford, Oakland Raiders
Ford caught four passes for 108 yards and a score. He’s had some moments this year, but isn’t a good option.
Ruling:  Don’t Sweat ‘em.
.
Ben Obomanu, Seattle Seahawks
We also endorsed Obomanu and he came through with flying colors. After catching five passes for 159 yards and a touchdown, he has scored in consecutive games and three of his past four. With Mike Williams’ status in question, Obomanu looks like a good play.
Ruling:  Get ‘em.
.
Earl Bennett, Chicago Bears
Bennett had a nice game catching four passes for 56 yards and two touchdowns. Despite his performance, he doesn’t make a great add.
Ruling:  Don’t Sweat ‘em.
.
Danario Alexander, St. Louis Rams
Alexander had four catches for 95 yards, but is not the type of player you should gamble on at this crucial point of the season.
Ruling:  Don’t Sweat ‘em.
.
Blair White, Indianapolis Colts
White caught four passes for 34 yards and a touchdown. He has three scores in the past two weeks, and it looks like he’s got a grip on the Colts’ third receiver gig. He’s not a must start, but he should be owned.
Ruling:  Get ‘em.
.

TEs
Kevin Boss, New York Giants
We predicted that he would get additional looks with Hakeem Nicks and Steve Smith out, and he delivered leading the way with eight targets. He caught three passes for 74 yards and a touchdown. He should remain a more featured option going forward.
Ruling:  Get ‘em.
.
Joel Dreessen, Houston Texans
We liked Dreessen this week and he came through. So he didn’t wow anybody with his three catches for 15 yards, but he scored for the second straight week. If Owen Daniels remains out, he’s a decent option going forward.
Ruling:  Get ‘em.
.
Brent Celek, Philadelphia Eagles
If you gave up on Celek, I don’t blame you. Before his three catches for 50 yards and an incredible touchdown, he had 16 yards over the past four games. With Houston on deck, it might be a good time to give  him another chance.
Ruling:  Get ‘em.
.
Billy Bajema & Michael Hoomanawanui, St. Louis Rams
Bajema caught three passes for 32 yards and two touchdowns. Hoomanawanui scored for the second straight week. Neither are good fantasy options though.
Ruling:  Don’t Sweat ‘em.

    Great trio of backs. Westbrook is probably a popular choice if he’s floating out there. Some of the recent guys that have been productive are Goodson, J-Stew, Tolbert, Blount, Fred Jackson. Hard to say what’s available. Odds are you aren’t going to use them over your top three. I think the three you have should be top 15 this week. I just like your studs CJ and Turner over TJ.
