2013 Get ‘em or Don’t Sweat ‘em – NFL Week 15

Dec 9, 2013


.
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. Keep in mind that this time of year it’s pretty much injuries that dictate roster moves.
.
Jason Campbell, QB, Cleveland Browns
Jason Campbell threw for 391 yard and three touchdowns against the New England Patriots. The Cleveland Browns have a favorable matchup next week against the Chicago Browns, but I couldn’t rely on Campbell in one-quarterback leagues.
Ruling: Don’t Sweat ‘em.
.
Toby Gerhart, RB, Minnesota Vikings
Toby Gerhart ran for 89 yards and a touchdown against the Baltimore Ravens. He’s worth a grab if Adrian Peterson (foot) is unable to go against the Philadelphia Eagles.
Ruling: Get ‘em.
.
Shonn Greene, RB, Tennessee Titans
Shonn Greene ran for 46 yards and a pair of touchdowns against the Denver Broncos. He made the most of his nine carries. You have to hope for a touchdown if you’re using Greene. That’s too risky at this stage of the game.
Ruling: Don’t Sweat ‘em.
.
Marcel Reece, RB, Oakland Raiders
Marcel Reece ran for 123 yards and a touchdown against a tough New York Jets run defense. He also caught a pair of passes for 38 yards. He’s worth an add in case Rashad Jennings is out again with his concussion.
Ruling: Get ‘em.
.
LaVon Brazill, WR, Indianapolis Colts
LaVon Brazill caught three of four targets for 53 yard and a pair of touchdowns against the Cincinnati Bengals. He’s been coming on in recent weeks, but at this point he’s more of a player to consider for next year.
Ruling: Don’t Sweat ‘em.
.
Justin Hunter, WR, Tennessee Titans
Justin Hunter caught four of eight targets for 114 yards and a touchdown against the Broncos. He’s inconsistent, but there is potential. He’s also a player to consider for next year.
Ruling: Don’t Sweat ‘em.
.
Cordarrelle Patterson, WR, Minnesota Vikings
Cordarrelle Patterson caught five of seven targets for 141 yards and a touchdown against the Ravens. The Vikings are getting him more involved, but he’s more of a sleeper play against the Eagles.
Ruling: Don’t Sweat ‘em.
.
Da’Rick Rogers, WR, Indianapolis Colts
Da’Rick Rogers caught six of nine targets for 107 yards and two touchdowns against the Bengals. It was an impressive performance, but it would be tough to count on him in Week 15.
Ruling: Don’t Sweat ‘em.
.
Marcedes Lewis, TE, Jacksonville Jaguars
Marcedes Lewis caught two of four targets for 42 yards and a touchdown against the Houston Texans. It was his second straight game with a score. He has the Buffalo Bills in Week 15 and the stingy Tennessee Titans in Week 16. You can roll the dice on him against the Bills, but I’d look elsewhere.
Ruling: Don’t Sweat ‘em.
.
Logan Paulsen, TE, Washington Redskins
Logan Paulsen caught three of five targets for 44 yards and a touchdown against the Kansas City Chiefs. It was his second straight game with a score. I wouldn’t trust him given the way the Washington Redskins have been playing lately. That said, if you are desperate at tight end, he does have a  nice matchup next week against the Falcons.
Ruling: Don’t Sweat’ em.
.
Andrew Quarless, TE, Green Bay Packers
Andrew Quarless caught six of seven targets for 66 yards and a touchdown against the Atlanta Falcons. He has not been a consistent option. You should have a better tight end to rely on.
Ruling: Don’t Sweat ‘em.
.
Luke Willson, TE, Seattle Seahawks
Luke Willson caught three of four targets for 70 yard and a touchdown against the San Francisco 49ers. He shouldn’t be on your radar.
Ruling: Don’t Sweat ‘em.

    I don’t expect him to pick up the slack.

    I lost J. Jones and Randall Cobb earlier this season. Managed to make it to the playoffs anyway. I have DeSean Jackson and Keenan Allen and will start themm. I also have Boykin, Wallace and Hilton. Out of those three which would you start?

    I’d go Wallace

    Actually he could see some more looks, but it’s a risk I wouldn’t want to take.
