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 (for the league’s that play the full season).
.
Shaun Hill, QB, Detroit Lions
Hill returned to throw for 222 yards and a pair of touchdowns. He added ten yards on the ground. He’s been effective when he’s been healthy. He makes a decent Week 17 start against the fading Vikings.
Ruling:  Get ‘em.
.

Tim Tebow, QB, Denver Broncos

Tebow threw for 308 yards and a touchdown against. He added 27 yards and a score on the ground. He has a tough draw against San Diego next week, so I wouldn’t roll with him.
Ruling:  Don’t Sweat ‘em.
.
Dominic Rhodes, RB, Indianapolis Colts
Rhodes ran for 98 yards on 17 carries. You have to add him in case he gets the start next week, but this smells like a situation to avoid.
Ruling:  Get ‘em.
.
John Kuhn, RB, Green Bay Packers
Kuhn had 22 yards on six carries with a pair of touchdowns. He added seven yards on two catches for another score. I still don’t trust him to have a good game against the Bears.
Ruling:  Don’t Sweat ‘em. continue reading »
