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.

Russell Wilson, QB, Seattle Seahawks

Wilson threw for 293 yards and a pair of touchdowns. He also ran for 71 yards. Wilson has multiple touchdown passes in each of his last five games. He’s a decent bench option that you could possibly start in Week 15 against the Buffalo Bills.

Ruling:  Get ‘em

Brady Quinn, QB, Kansas City Chiefs

Quinn threw for 201 yards and two touchdowns in an emotional win for Kansas City. He also ran for 12 yards. He doesn’t belong on a fantasy roster though.

Ruling:  Don’t Sweat ‘em.

Peyton Hillis, RB, Kansas City Chiefs

Hillis scored a touchdown, but only ran for 19 yards on 12 carries (1.6 yards per carry). He caught one pass for nine yards. He’s not worth a roster spot yet.

Ruling:  Don’t Sweat ‘em.

Chris Givens, WR, St. Louis Rams

Givens caught 11 of 14 targets for 92 yards. He provides solid WR depth.

Ruling:  Get ‘em.

Josh Gordon, WR, Cleveland Browns

Gordon caught six of seven targets for 116 yards and a touchdown. That is three straight games with 50-plus yards. He’s risky, but he’s playing well.

Ruling:  Get ‘em.

Rod Streater, WR, Oakland Raiders

Streater caught three of four targets for 96 yards and a touchdown. He didn’t catch a ball the previous week.

Ruling:  Don’t Sweat ‘em.

Dallas Clark, TE, Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Clark scored for the third time in four weeks. He’s really been playing like a TE1 of late.

Ruling:  Get ‘em.

Tony Moeaki, TE, Kansas City Chiefs

Moeaki caught all four of his targets for 54 yards and a touchdown. He’s averaging 58.8 yards in his past four games, making him a decent TE2. It was also his seventh time in the last eight games with at least 50 yards.

Ruling:  Get ‘em.
