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.


Kevin Kolb, QB, Arizona Cardinals

The two INTs weren’t great, but he threw three touchdowns, his second straight multi-TD week, and 324 yards. He has a few solid matchups coming up, but I’d only use him in two-quarterback leagues.

Ruling:  Don’t sweat ‘em.


Brandon Weeden, QB, Cleveland Browns

Weeden reached the 300-yard plateau for the second time in three games. He has been very inconsistent. He is only a viable option in two-quarterback leagues.

Ruling:  Don’t sweat ‘em.


Jackie Battle, RB, San Diego Chargers

To Ryan Mathews’ owners chagrin, Battle scored twice while compiling 81 total yards. If you’re going to carry a handcuff, it appears Battle is the one.

Ruling:  Don’t sweat ‘em.


Brandon Bolden, RB, New England Patriots

Scored for the second straight week as he picked up 137 yards on 16 carries. Keep in mind they were playing (and pounding) the Bills.

Ruling:  Don’t sweat ‘em.


Donald Jones, WR, Buffalo Bills

Caught two passes on three targets for 90 yards and a score. He could be a bye-week fill-in possibly, but isn’t a guy to rush out and obtain.

Ruling:  Don’t sweat ‘em.


James Jones, WR, Green Bay Packers

Jones caught five of his six targets for 56 yards and two touchdowns. Given Jennings’ health, I would add Jones.

Ruling:  Get ‘em.


Andre Roberts, WR, Arizona Cardinals

If  Roberts was dropped after having a combined 57 yards the past two weeks, he might be worth a look. He caught six passes on nine targets for 118 yards and a pair of touchdowns. That gives him four on the year.

Ruling:  Get ‘em.


Mike Williams, WR, Tampa Bay Buccaneers 

Williams, one of last week's sleeper picks, caught four of his eight targets for 115 yards. The Skins are terrible against the pass, but he’s a good WR depth option.

Ruling:  Get ‘em.


Kendall Wright, WR, Tennessee Titans

Wright caught four passes on eight targets for 46 yards and a score. He’s good WR depth.

Ruling:  Get ‘em.


Marcedes Lewis, TE, Jacksonville Jaguars

I had him as a sleeper pick, and he managed to score. The Bengals have struggled against tight ends this year, and the Jags have struggled to move the ball.

Ruling:  Don’t sweat ‘em.
