Here we go fantasy owners: One more week of idle NFL teams and then the fantasy playoff stretch run begins.
Is your team in position to make the fantasy playoffs this year?
If you are in good shape or not, monitoring and working the waiver wire at this point of the season remains crucial.
Jay Cutler, Bears (188-2)
Cutler’s best stat yesterday: Zero interceptions. Seen him on the waiver wire in a few leagues.
Mike Tolbert, Chargers (8-32)
No touchdown this week, but Ryan Mathews suffered an ankle injury that could keep him out.
Jarvarris James, Colts (4-12-2)
Only got four carries, but punched two of them in for scores. If Joseph Addai and Mike Hart continue to miss time, James will continue to get important touches.
Seyi Ajirotutu, Chargers (4-111-2)
Who? You know I actually almost picked this guy up last week because of all the injuries. Now it will be much harder to get him.
Nate Burleson, Lions (7-113-1)
Maybe this was a product of Darrelle Revis shutting down Calvin Johnson. But the Lions’ offense is too high-powered to ignore Burleson’s performance.
Jacob Tamme, Colts (11-108-1)
Dallas Clark goes down and the Colts do not miss a beat at tight end. Going to be interesting to see Tamme and Clark on the field together next year.
Here are today’s great reads:
- Vintage Brett Favre yesterday in a comeback win against the Cardinals. Career high in passing yards, two touchdowns and two picks. Piled up the points for his fantasy owners, if they started him. [Shutdown Corner]
- The Browns scored a second signature win this season on Sunday, whooping the New England Patriots. Peyton Hillis was beastly in the win. This team has an interesting core of tough football players in a tough division. Could be pretty good with the addition of a few more play-makers to the offense next year. [FanHouse]
