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.

Jason Campbell, QB, Cleveland Browns

Jason Campbell threw for 293 yards and a pair of touchdowns against the Kansas City Chiefs. He added 17 yards on the ground. He’s worth considering, especially in two-quarterback leagues, because Josh Gordon and Jordan Cameron are such good weapons. In other leagues, you probably have a better option.

Ruling:  Don’t Sweat ‘em.

Andy Dalton, QB, Cincinnati Bengals

Andy Dalton threw for 325 yards and five touchdowns against the New York Jets. He’s a great QB2.

Ruling: Get ‘em.

Terrelle Pryor, QB, Oakland Raiders

Terrelle Pryor threw for 87 yards against the Pittsburgh Steelers. He also ran for 106 yards and the longest touchdown ever by a quarterback. Pryor is a good QB2.

Ruling:  Get ‘em.

Montee Ball, RB, Denver Broncos

Montee Ball ran for 37 yards and a touchdown. He’s only worth an add as a handcuff to Knowshon Moreno.

Ruling:  Don’t Sweat ‘em.

Mike Brown, WR, Jacksonville Jaguars

Mike Brown caught three of six targets for 43 yards and a touchdown against the San Francisco 49ers. Last week he had 120 yards. He’s turning into a desperation play but isn’t a reliable option.

Ruling:  Don’t Sweat ‘em.

Drew Davis, WR, Atlanta Falcons

Drew Davis caught five of seven targets for 77 yards and a touchdown. He’s worth keeping an eye on as the Atlanta Falcons adjust to their injuries. I’d need to see another solid game before adding him.

Ruling: Don’t Sweat ‘em.

Aaron Dobson, WR, New England Patriots

Aaron Dobson caught four of five targets for 60 yards and a touchdown against the Miami Dolphins. The Patriots aren’t the high-powered offense that they have been in recent years. He’s just not a player you can trust on a weekly basis.

Ruling:  Don’t Sweat ‘em.

Marvin Jones, WR, Cincinnati Bengals

Marvin Jones caught all eight of his targets for 122 yards and four touchdowns against the Jets. That’s six touchdowns in the past three games.

Ruling:  Get ‘em.

Dexter McCluster, WR, Kansas City Chiefs

Dexter McCluster caught seven of 10 targets for 67 yards and a score. He also ran for five yards. He had 70 yards last week, but I’d look elsewhere.

Ruling:  Don’t Sweat ‘em.

Lance Moore, WR, New Orleans Saints

Lance Moore caught three of four passes for 34 yards and a touchdown. Moore is a guy to keep an eye on in case he’s ready to take on a bigger role, but you’ll want to see more from him before adding him to your roster.

Ruling: Don’t Sweat ‘em.

Emmanuel Sanders, WR, Pittsburgh Steelers

Emmanuel Sanders caught seven of 11 targets for 88 yards and a score against the Oakland Raiders. He’s topped 55 yards in four of six games this year. Sanders is a good bench option.

Ruling: Get ‘em.

Kenny Stills, WR, New Orleans Saints

Kenny Stills caught three of four targets for 129 yards and a pair of touchdowns against the Bills. He has big-play ability, but he is not inconsistent. He’s a big risk, big reward type of option.

Ruling: Don’t Sweat ‘em.

Timothy Wright, TE, Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Timothy Wright caught five of eight targets for 48 yards and a touchdown against the Carolina Panthers. He’s been solid in two of the past three games. The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are bad and will be forced to throw a lot. Wright should get plenty of targets. He’s not a bad TE2.

Ruling:  Get ‘em.
