Ryan Fitzpatrick – 9% Yahoo! Owned – The past 3 Weeks, Ryan Fitzpatrick has outscored all QB’s except Drew Brees. These past 3 Weeks Fitz has thrown for 5 TD’s and 0 interceptions. Those hurting for QB’s (Rodgers, Cutler, Griffin, or Luck owners) should look to Fitz in Week 13 up against a struggling Colts Defense.
Benny Cunningham – 4% Yahoo! Owned – Cunningham replaced a concussed Zac Stacy in Week 12. Cunningham rushed the ball 13 times for 109 yards and a TD in relief, while 5 of his carries went for atleast 10 yards. The rookie out of Mid Tennessee State is worth a pickup in all leagues and is considered a low-end RB2 against the 49ers next week.
Nate Burleson – 23% Yahoo! Owned – Last week we told you guys Burleson was our sleeper of the week and he proved us right catching 7 balls on 10 targets for 77 yards and a TD. He should be owned in all leagues as well, especially those hurting for WR’s. We’ve been telling you to add him for a while now, if he’s still available – add him off of waivers! Next week Detroit takes on the Packers and their dicey pass defense in Detroit.
Michael Crabtree – 30% Yahoo! Owned – Crabtree is expected back in Week 13 at the latest! Crabtree offers huge potential, but the 49ers will likely ease him into the role to make sure he’s ready for the NFL Playoffs (not fantasy playoffs). He’s still worth an add if nothing is out there – go with Burleson if you have to choose one.
Jacob Tamme – 3% Yahoo! Owned – This call is strictly if Julius Thomas continues to miss time. It’s evident Peyton Manning loves throwing to his Tight Ends, regardless of who they are. Tamme finished Week 12 with 47 receiving yards and a TD while catching all 5 of his targets. He’s a worthy add for Thomas owners if roster space is available.
Pittsburgh Steelers – 35% Yahoo! Owned – With newfound hope in reaching the playoffs, the Pittsburgh Steelers are now worthy of an add. This defense is an emotional bunch which is all the more reason why we like them. Look for the Steelers Defense to play tough in huge divisional game vs. the Ravens next week and the Dolphins in Week 14. With the playoffs just at their fingertips the Steelers are a great defense to add heading into your fantasy playoffs.
