2010 Get ‘em or Don’t Sweat ‘em – Week 2

Sep 20, 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
Josh Freeman, Tampa Bay Buccaneers:  Freeman only completed half of his 24 passes, but had 178 yards and 2 TDs. He added 43 on the ground. He isn’t a fantasy starter, but he’s rock solid in 2-QB leagues and a decent QB2.
Ruling:  Get ‘em.
.
Kerry Collins, Tennessee Titans:  Collins replaced Vince Young and threw for 149 yards with a TD and a pick. VY will likely get the start next week.
Ruling:  Don’t Sweat ‘em.
.
Shaun Hill, Detroit Lions:  Hill picked apart the Eagles to the tune of 335 yards with 2 TDs and 2 INTs. He showed he’s worthwhile in 2-QB leagues while Stafford is on the mend.
Ruling:  Get ‘em (2-QB leagues), Don’t Sweat ‘em (Standard leagues)
.
RBs
Jason Snelling, Atlanta Falcons:  Michael Turner left with a groin injury. Snelling did his Arian Foster impression with 186 total yards (129 rushing) and 3 TDs (2 rushing, 1 receiving). If Turner can’t go next week, Snelling could be a monster.
Ruling:  Get ‘em.
.
Peyton Hills, Cleveland Browns:  Hillis was a popular add last week, but if your league slept on him, he’s a must add. He had 35 yards and a score, adding three catches for 26 yards.
Ruling:  Get ‘em.
.
Mike Tolbet, San Diego Chargers:  Ryan Mathews left with an ankle injury and Tolbert responded with 95 total yards (82 rushing) and 2 TDs. He’s also one of the top players to grab off the wire this week.
Ruling:  Get ‘em.
.
Donald Brown , Indianapolis Colts:  It’s easy to say Brown’s 16 carries for 69 yards and a score were because of the Colts’ margin of victory, but don’t forget Brown scored the first touchdown.
Ruling:  Get ‘em.


WRs
Brian Hartline, Miami Dolphins:  Hartline had three catches for 28 yards and a score against the Vikings. He did not catch a pass last week and had just three targets.
Ruling:  Don’t Sweat ‘em.
.
James Jones, Green Bay Packers:  Jones caught three passes (seven targets) for 32 yards and a score. There are too many mouths to feed in front of him like Finley, Jennings, and Driver so Jones isn’t worth having.
Ruling:  Don’t Sweat ‘em.
.
Josh Cribbs, Cleveland Browns:  Cribbs had three catches, including a 65 yard TD. He’s electric, but he’s not a viable fantasy option.
Ruling:  Don’t Sweat ‘em.
.
Nate Washington, Tennessee Titans:  Washington scored for the second straight week.  He had four catches for 34 yards and led the Titans with nine targets. Justin Gage and Kenny Britt both had decent numbers so it may be best to hold off on Titan WRs.
Ruling:  Don’t Sweat ‘em.
.
Demaryius Thomas, Denver Broncos:  Thomas had eight catches for 97 yards, including a 21 yard TD. He’s been banged up, but has enormous potential.
Ruling:  Get ‘em.
.
Mark Clayton, St. Louis Rams:  Clayton was not as productive as last week when he had ten catches for 119 yards, but he caught a pair of TDs against the Raiders. If he happens to be available you should make it a point to grab him.
Ruling:  Get ‘em.
.
Louis Murphy, Oakland Raiders:  Murphy had six catches for 91 yards and a score against the Rams. Consistency will likely be an issue, but he’s worth a roster spot.
Ruling:  Get ‘em.
.
TEs
Tony Moeaki, Kansas City Chiefs:  In the opener he had three catches for 21 yards and a score. He followed that up with five catches for 58 yards. He led the Chiefs with ten targets. Clearly he has a rapport with Cassel. He’s useful in deep leagues.
Ruling:  Get ‘em.
.
Brandon Pettigrew, Detroit Lions:  Pettigrew caught seven passes for 108 yards. He only caught one pass in the opener, but his upside makes him a decent TE2.
Ruling:  Get ‘em.
.
Aaron Hernandez, New England Patriots:  Last week he had one catch for 45 yards while Rob Gronkowski had a TD. This week Hernandez had six catches for 101 yards while Gronkowski had 14 yards. Clearly Hernandez has the upper hand in this race, and is a decent backup TE.
Ruling:  Get ‘em.
