2012 Get ‘em or Don’t Sweat ‘em – Week 10

Nov 5, 2012


.
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.
.
John Skelton, QB, Arizona Cardinals
Skelton threw for 306 yards, a touchdown, and an interception. He’s not a solid QB2.
Ruling:  Don’t Sweat ‘em.
.
Russell Wilson, QB, Seattle Seahawks
Wilson threw for 173 yards and three touchdowns. He added 27 rushing yards. He’s a better NFL quarterback than a fantasy one.
Ruling:  Don’t Sweat ‘em.
.
Joique Bell, RB, Detroit Lions
Bell ran for 73 yards on 13 carries. He also caught three passes for 36 yards. LeShoure ran for three scores to solidify his gig, but Bell is still getting plenty of touches.
Ruling:  Get ‘em.
.
James Starks, RB, Green Bay Packers
Ran for 61 yards on 17 carries. I recommended grabbing him before the game so you didn’t have competition for him. He should be solid depth.
Ruling:  Get ‘em.
.
Justin Blackmon, WR, Jacksonville Jaguars
Caught five of nine targets for 32 yards and a touchdown. It’s his second solid game in a row. Could be coming on.
Ruling:  Get ‘em.
.
Donnie Avery, WR, Indianapolis Colts
Caught five of eight targets for 108 yards. He injured his hip though, which is a concern.
Ruling: Don’t Sweat ‘em.
.
Armanti Edwards, WR, Carolina Panthers
Caught a 82-yard pass. It was his only target. Look elsewhere.
Ruling:  Don’t Sweat ‘em.
.
Michael Floyd, WR, Arizona Cardinals
Caught five of seven targets for 80 yards. He’s not a guy to count on right now.
Ruling:  Don’t Sweat ‘em.
.
T.Y. Hilton, WR, Indianapolis Colts
Caught six of eleven targets for 102 yards and a score. Worth considering if Avery is unable to go this week.
Ruling:  Get ‘em
.
Michael Spurlock, WR, Jacksonville Jaguars
Caught all five of his targets for 35 yards and a score. I’d rather have Shorts or Blackmon.
Ruling:  Don’t Sweat ‘em.
.
Rod Streater, WR, Oakland Raiders
Streater caught  four of ten targets for 54 yards and a touchdown. I’d look elsewhere.
Ruling:  Don’t Sweat ‘em.
.
Joel Dreessen, TE, Denver Broncos
Caught all four targets for 38 yards and a touchdown. Back on track after getting blanked last week. Decent TE2.
Ruling:  Get ‘em.

Brandon Myers, TE, Oakland Raiders
Caught eight of thirteen targets for 59 yards and two touchdowns. They were his first two scores of the year. He was worthy of a roster spot before this monster game.
Ruling:  Get ‘em.
.
Logan Paulsen, TE, Washington Redskins
Caught five of eight targets for 59 yards. He’s a borderline TE1.
Ruling:  Get ‘em.

    I am in need of some sage-like advice. I was hit with four injuries this weekend (counting Sproles) which eliminated two starting RBs, a handcuff, and my third receiver. I think I’m starting Daniel Thomas in my now vacant RB2 spot, but I need to figure out a flex (RB/TE/WR). It’s a PPR league, 6 points per TD. My options:

    TY Hilton, Vernon Davis, Joique Bell, Ronnie Brown, Emmanuel Sanders, Felix Jones. Insert explicatives here…

    Correction, I’m rolling with Felix as my RB2. Still need a flex…
