Get ‘em or Don’t Sweat ‘em Week 13

Dec 1, 2008

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.

Joe Flacco
- Flacco turned in a wonderful performance this week with 280 passing yards, a couple of TDs, and even 15 yards on the ground.  He is coming into his own as a QB, but I chalk this outburst up to playing a Cincy team that has already mailed this season in.
Ruling:  Don’t Sweat ‘em.

Cadillac Williams
- With Earnest Graham out for the year I expect the Bucs to work Cadillac intot he mix to gear him up for the playoffs and keep Warrick Dunn fresh.  His 8-yard TD run was encouraging.
Ruling:  Get ‘em.

Brandon Jackson - Now that the playoffs are here you’re better off keeping guys who would be spectacular if they got the starting nod vs. a starter like Cedric Benson who’s never going to have that big game.
Ruling:  Get ‘em.

Davone Bess
– Lisa Danhof was Ahead of the Curve in calling for Bess.  He did not let her down with a six catch-84 yard performance against St. Louis.  He has favorabe matchups (BUF, SF, KC) going forward.
Ruling:  Get ‘em.

Amani Toomer - Plaxico’ stupidity should play into Toomer’s favor as evidenced by his 5 catch-85 yard-TD performance against Washington, but I still don’t seem him as roster worthy.  The Giants are very inconsistent in the passing game.  Don’t get me wrong, Eli consistently produces, but he doesn’t consistently use the same cast of charcters to get the job done.  I wouldn’t risk my playoff life on Toomer.      
Ruling:  Don’t Sweat ‘em.

Justine Pelle
- The way Tight Ends have been scoring lately, you may get excited by the 9.8 points (38 yards, TD) Pelle registered this week.  Before you go gaga and burn a roster spot with him, remember his opponent was San Diego.  They have been getting burned by TEs all year long.  Pelle isn’t a strong play going forward.
Ruling:  Don’t Sweat ‘em.

There you have it.  I hope I provided you some good info while you make your fantasy team waiver wire adjustments.
