Get ‘em or Don’t Sweat ‘em Week 12

Nov 26, 2007

Each week there are some surprising fantasy performers.  I’m going to take a look at them and see if you should go get ‘em or not.

QB
A.J. Feeley
- He filled in admirably for Donovan McNabb with 345 yards and 3 TDs.  However, he faces a tough Seattle secondary if he gets the start next week.  Plus, I wouldn’t be surprised if McNabb is back in the lineup next week.
Ruling – Don’t Sweat ‘em.

Kolby Smith - 150 yards and 2 TDs.  You probably already picked him up when you saw Priest retire.  If not you grabbed him after his big game against Oakland.  Unfortunately he can’t face Oakland every week, but he’s worth a roster spot.
Ruling – Get ‘em.
Andre Hall - 167 total yards and a score.  He does get to face Oakland next week.  If he’s available, go to your league site now and get him.  Come back to see the rest.
Ruling – Get ‘em.
Adrian Peterson - No, not the Viking.  I’m talking Bears now.  Cedric Benson will likely be out a while.  If you need a starting RB, he’s likely to be one.
Ruling – Get ‘em.

WR
Greg Lewis
- It depends.  He has a huge 88 yard, 2 TD game.  I wouldn’t say rush right out and get him, but if Feeley starts again and Lewis has a good rapport with him, maybe he’s worth a spot.
Ruling – Get ‘em (if you’re in a deep league)
Sidney Rice -  He’s been pretty solid lately with 66 yards and a score, a passing TD, and 82 and a score over the past three weeks.  He may be worth stashing in deep leagues.  He could have a solid game against Detroit this week.
Ruling:  Get ‘em.
Jabar Gaffney -  He had 87 yards and a score last week.  However, he has to fight for scraps behind Moss, Welker, and Stallworth.  You can’t take that chance this late in the year.
Ruling – Don’t Sweat ‘em.

TE
Tony Scheffler
- He made some unbelievable catches against the Bears.  If he’s available, he is a solid TE option.  He has a great rapport with Cutler.
Ruling – Get ‘em.

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