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.

John Skelton, QB, Arizona Cardinals

Skelton threw for 306 yards, a touchdown, and an interception. He’s not a solid QB2.

Ruling:  Don’t Sweat ‘em.

Russell Wilson, QB, Seattle Seahawks

Wilson threw for 173 yards and three touchdowns. He added 27 rushing yards. He’s a better NFL quarterback than a fantasy one.

Ruling:  Don’t Sweat ‘em.

Joique Bell, RB, Detroit Lions

Bell ran for 73 yards on 13 carries. He also caught three passes for 36 yards. LeShoure ran for three scores to solidify his gig, but Bell is still getting plenty of touches.

Ruling:  Get ‘em.

James Starks, RB, Green Bay Packers

Ran for 61 yards on 17 carries. I recommended grabbing him before the game so you didn’t have competition for him. He should be solid depth.

Ruling:  Get ‘em.






Justin Blackmon, WR, Jacksonville Jaguars

Caught five of nine targets for 32 yards and a touchdown. It’s his second solid game in a row. Could be coming on.

Ruling:  Get ‘em.

Donnie Avery, WR, Indianapolis Colts

Caught five of eight targets for 108 yards. He’s decent WR depth, just beware of his hip injury. If he is unable to go next week, maybe target T.Y. Hilton.

Ruling: Don't Sweat 'em.

Armanti Edwards, WR, Carolina Panthers

Caught a 82-yard pass. It was his only target. Look elsewhere.

Ruling:  Don’t Sweat ‘em.

Michael Floyd, WR, Arizona Cardinals


Caught five of seven targets for 80 yards. He’s not a guy to count on right now.


Ruling:  Don’t Sweat ‘em.


T.Y Hilton, WR, Indianapolis Colts

Caught six of eleven targets for 102 yards and a score. Worth considering if Avery (hip) is unable to go this week.

Ruling:  Get 'em.

Michael Spurlock, WR, Jacksonville Jaguars


Caught all five of his targets for 35 yards and a score. I’d rather have Shorts or Blackmon.

Ruling:  Don’t Sweat ‘em.

Rod Streater, WR, Oakland Raiders

Streater caught  four of ten targets for 54 yards and a touchdown. I’d look elsewhere.

Ruling:  Don’t Sweat ‘em.


Joel Dreessen, TE, Denver Broncos

Caught all four targets for 38 yards and a touchdown. Back on track after getting blanked last week. Decent TE2.


Ruling:  Get ‘em.
Brandon Myers, TE, Oakland Raiders


Caught eight of thirteen targets for 59 yards and two touchdowns. They were his first two scores of the year. He was worthy of a roster spot before this monster game.

Ruling:  Get ‘em.

Logan Paulsen, TE, Washington Redskins

Caught five of eight targets for 59 yards. He’s a borderline TE1.

Ruling:  Get ‘em.
