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.
.
Nick Foles, QB, Philadelphia Eagles
Foles threw for 381 yards and a pair of touchdowns against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. He plays the Cincinnati Bengals next week so there isn’t much need to add him.
Ruling:  Don’t Sweat ‘em.
.
Montell Owens, RB, Jacksonville Jaguars
Owens ran for 91 yards and a touchdown against the New York Jets. He caught a pass for 11 yards as well. Next week’s game against the Miami Dolphins will be tough, but he can bu used if you’re in a pinch.
Ruling:  Get ‘em.
.
Bilal Powell, RB, New York Jets
Powell ran for 78 yards and a touchdown, giving him four solid games in a row. He’s sharing with Shonn Greene so he’s a risky play, but is an option if you need a running back and your picking are slim.
Ruling:  Get ‘em.
.
Robert Turbin, RB, Seattle Seahawks
Turbin ran for 108 yards as the Seahawks destroyed the Arizona Cardinals. They face the Buffalo Bills next week, but I wouldn’t count on him as even a flex play.
Ruling:  Don’t Sweat ‘em.
.
David Wilson, RB, New York Giants
Wilson got things started with a long kickoff return for a touchdown. He ran for 100 yards and two more touchdowns. He had an amazing day, but it’s hard to say what his role will be next week.
Ruling:  Don’t Sweat ‘em.
.
Jason Avant, WR, Philadelphia Eagles
Avant caught seven of 12 targets for 133 yards. That’s two solid games in a row, but he’s not a recommended play against the Bengals next week.
Ruling:  Don’t Sweat ‘em.
.
Brandon Gibson, WR, St. Louis Rams
Gibson caught six of nine passes for 100 yards and a touchdown. He didn’t catch a pass in the previous two games. He’s not a reliable option in the fantasy football playoffs.
Ruling:  Don’t Sweat ‘em.
.
Josh Gordon, WR, Cleveland Browns
Gordon caught eight of 12 targets for 86 yards. He’s averaging 5.8 receptions for 78.8 yards in his past four games.
Ruling:  Get ‘em.
.
Andrew Hawkins, WR, Cincinnati Bengals
Hawkins caught six of 11 targets for 44 yards and a touchdown. He’s a marginal option in PPR leagues, but can be left alone in most standard leagues.
Ruling:  Don’t Sweat ‘em.
.
Alshon Jeffrey, WR, Chicago Bears
Jeffrey caught three of six targets for 57 yards and a touchdown. He’s a high risk guy going forward, but has plenty of upside.
Ruling:  Don’t Sweat ‘em.
.
Joe Morgan, WR, New Orleans Saints
Morgan caught both of his targets for 106 yards. He doesn’t do enough to be on a fantasy team.
Ruling:  Don’t Sweat ‘em.
.
Rod Streater, WR, Oakland Raiders
Streater caught four of his seven targets for 100 yards, including a 58-yard grab. He caught three passes for 96 yards in Week 13, including a 64-yards catch. He’s a solid deep threat, but a risky fantasy play.
Ruling:  Don’t Sweat ‘em.
.
Jared Cook, TE, Tennessee Titans
Cook caught all three of his targets for 20 yards and a touchdown. He has had four decent games in a row, but is a risky play next week.
Ruling:  Don’t Sweat ‘em.
.
Anthony McCoy, TE, Seattle Seahawks
McCoy caught all three of his targets for 105 yards. This was not his typical game.
Ruling:  Don’t Sweat ‘em.
