Grab Bag: Week 12

With week 11 behind fantasy owners, the fantasy football playoffs are knocking at the door. Some guys stepped up in week 11 and fantasy owners may want to take a look at the waiver wire for some potential gems:

  • Santana Moss, WR, Redskins: Moss finally exploded, coincidentally against the Redskins’ biggest rival — the Cowboys. While there is no guarantee for consistency, Moss is worth owning as a backup in most fantasy leagues.
  • Ron Dayne, RB, Texans: Dayne ran hard against a stingy Saints’ run D and could continue to see time as the starting runningback in Houston with Ahman Green sidelined.
  • Jason Campbell, QB, Redskins: I was wrong about benching Campbell against the Cowboys. He continues to improve as a starting quarterback and should be owned as a backup in all fantasy leagues.
  • Chester Taylor, RB, Vikings: If you missed the memo, chances are the opportunity has passed to grab Taylor. But if he still is available, it would be best to grab him.
  • Heath Evans, RB, Patriots: Laurence Maroney finally scored a touchdown, but left the game against the Bills with an injured foot. Kevin Faulk left the game with a head injury. That leaves Heath Evans as the healthiest of the backs, and capable too.
  • Reuben Droughns/Derrick Ward, RB, Giants: With Brandon Jacobs banged up (again), Droughns and Ward might be good finds on the waiver wire. Both could see increased action in the Giants backfield while Jacobs recovers from a pulled hamstring.

    brian westbrook
    maurice morris
    kevin jones

    i was thinking: westbrook, and morris

    which TE to start??

    greg olsen
    donald lee

    my pick: donald lee

    any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. thanks again!

  2. pat: I like Jennings, Johnson and Hackett at WR. I like Westy and Mo Morris at RB. I like Greg Olsen at TE. Just my opinions. You have a pretty good team it looks like.

    Check back tomorrow night for a special Thanksgiving edition of Start/Sit!!!

  3. Haze-

    Would you go with Plaxico Burress or Greg Jennings?

    Leaning toward Jennings because Plax is banged up……

    Thanks

  4. Chris: If you are a bit queasy about Plax, I feel you. But he is playing against the No. 32 passing D in the league. Sometimes the numbers do lie and you get burned, but sometimes you just gotta go with the tendencies. I like Plax this weekend.

  5. Who should I start at RB’s, I can only start 2??

    Also, who should I start at WR’s, I can only start 2??

    RB’s
    Graham
    Jones-Drew
    Edge James

    WR’s
    Engram
    Evans
    Chris Henry
    Cotchery
    Santana Moss

    Thanks!!

  6. Haze-

    Couple more questions:

    Packers D or Giants D?

    Willis McGahee or Chester Taylor?

    Thanks

  7. If you could take a moment to help me set my lineup. This is what I have.
    QB – Drew Brees @ Car
    WR – Andre Johnson @ Cle
    WR – Brandon Marshall @ Chi
    RB – Clinton Portis @ TB
    TE – Alge Crumpler vs IND
    W/R – Justin Fargus @ KC
    K – Stephen Gostkowski vs Phi
    Def – Chicago vs Den
    BN – Lee Evans @ Jac
    BN – Derrick Mason @ SD
    BN – Todd Heap @ SD
    BN – Dwayne Bowe vs Oak
    BN – Ricky Williams @ Pit

    If you suggest anything different let me know. Thanks a lot!
    BN –

  8. Andy: Edge and Jones-Drew, Henry and Evans.

    Chris: Green Bay and McGahee.

    Derek: I like your lineup as is!

  9. Well Barber came through on Thursday, but should I start Ron Dayne (@ CLE) or unknown Kolby Smith (vs. OAK) on Sunday? My gut tells me to go with Dayne because he’s less of an unknown. But playing anyone against the Raiders’ woeful run D seems like a good idea.
