Get ‘em or Don’t Sweat ‘em Week 15

Dec 15, 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.

Tarvaris Jackson
- T-Jack looked brilliant with four TD strikes against Arizona.  He’s starting to convince me that he’ll be ready to the Vikings starter next year, but he’s not somebody you can count on in the fantasy football  Super Bowl.
Ruling:  Don’t Sweat ‘em.

Cedric Benson
- He came into last week’s  game averaging 3.0 yards per carry.  He gained 73 yards on 21 carries vs. Washinton and added 88 yards through the air.  With a nice matchup against Cleveland next week, he could be a surprise fantasy Super Bowl star.
Ruling:  Get ‘em

P.J. Pope - Denver’s next flavor of the month.  Pope had a nice game against Carolina with 51 rushing yards on seven carries and 24 receiving yards and a score on three catches.  They face the Bills next week.  If you’re really hurting at the position you can plug him in.  Don’t expect Hillis production though.
Ruling:  Get ‘em.

Dennis Northcutt
- Northcutt grabbed five passes for 127 yards and a score.  Entering the gmae he had 26 recepti0ns for 282 yards.  I have no faith in him next week so don’t waste your time with him.
Ruling:  Don’t Sweat ‘em.

James Jones - Jones came into this weeks gave with 12 catches for 101 yard and 1 TD.  His four catches for 132 yards aren’t enough for me to consider him next week.  I do like him for next year, if you’re beginning to plan already
Ruling:  Don’t Sweat ‘em.

Joey Haynes
- Joey took his first catch for 19 yards and a score.  Are you really going to trust a guy with one catch on the season in your biggest game.
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.
