2013 Get ‘em or Don’t Sweat ‘em – NFL Week 17

2013 Get ‘em or Don’t Sweat ‘em – NFL Week 17

Dec 23, 2013

.
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. Keep in mind that this time of year it’s pretty much injuries that dictate roster moves.
.
Edwin Baker, RB, Cleveland Browns
Edwin Baker ran for 64 yards and a touchdown against a tough New York Jets’ run defense. He also caught two passes for 12 yards. He’s a decent add for next week against the Pittsburgh Steelers.
Ruling: Get ‘em.
.
Mark Ingram, RB, New Orleans Saints
Mark Ingram ran for 83 yards against the Carolina Panthers. He also caught a pass for seven yards. I wouldn’t trust the New Orleans Saints to start feeding him the ball regularly.
Ruling: Don’t Sweat ‘em.
.
Mike Brown, WR, Jacksonville Jaguars
Mike Brown caught five of six targets for 71 yards and a touchdown against the Tennessee Titans. He’s not a viable option for the final week of the season against the Indianapolis Colts.
Ruling: Don’t Sweat ‘em.
.
Jerrel Jernigan, WR, New York Giants
Jerrel Jernigan caught six of 12 targets for 80 yards and a touchdown against the Detroit Lions. He had seven catches for 67 yards the week before. I’d look elsewhere next week against the Washington Redskins unless you’re looking for a deep sleeper play.
Ruling: Don’t Sweat ‘em.
.
David Nelson, WR, New York Jets
David Nelson caught four of five targets for 33 yards and two touchdowns against the Cleveland Browns. He’s not a recommended add based on his 2013 production.
Ruling: Don’t Sweat ‘em.
.
Griff Whalen, WR, Indianapolis Colts
Griff Whalen caught seven of eight targets for 80 yards against the Kansas City Chiefs. Last week he had 45 yards and a score against the Houston Texans. I wouldn’t trust him for a third straight solid game.
Ruling: Don’t Sweat ‘em.
.
Marcedes Lewis, TE, Jacksonville Jaguars
Marcedes Lewis caught four of six targets for 50 yards and a touchdown against the Titans. Lewis has scored in four straight games. If you’re looking for tight end help in Week 17, he’s worth a look.
Ruling: Get ‘em.
