There were some unusual heroes on Sunday. There always are. Let’s take a look at the names and see if they are worthy of your fantasy rosters. 


Russell Wilson, QB, Seattle Seahawks

Wilson threw for 293 yards and three touchdowns. He added 17 yards on the ground. However, he was facing the New England Patriots’ horrible pass defense, so this isn’t the norm.

Ruling: Don’t Sweat ‘em. 


LeGarrette Blount, RB, Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Blount ran for 58 yards on seven carries and scored for the second straight week. He’s probably worth a look for bench depth.

Ruling: Get ‘em. 


Montario Hardesty, RB, Cleveland Browns

He ran for 56 yards and a score and added nine receiving yards. If T-Rich misses any time, he is worth grabbing.




Ruling: Get ‘em. 


Felix Jones, RB, Dallas Cowboys


Jones had 92 yards and a score on 18 carries. He also had 13 receiving yards. With Murray banged up, he’s a must add.

Ruling: Get ‘em. 


Braylon Edwards, WR, Seattle Seahawks

Edwards caught two passes for 21 yards and a score. Look elsewhere.

Ruling: Don’t Sweat ‘em. 


Chris Givens, WR, St. Louis Rams


Givens caught three passes for 85 yards. He’s worth a look in deep leagues, but I’d wait and see in most cases.


Ruling: Don’t Sweat ‘em. 



Josh Gordon, WR, Cleveland Browns

He caught three passes for 99 yards and a touchdown. It’s his third score in three weeks.

Ruling: Get ‘em. 


Derek Hagan, WR, Oakland Raiders


Hagan caught all four of his targets for 85 yards. It was a nice game, but don’t add him.

Ruling: Don’t Sweat ‘em. 



Michael Jenkins, WR, Minnesota Vikings

Jenkins caught six passes for 67 yards and a touchdown, but the Vikings were playing a weak Washington Redskins secondary. Look elsewhere.


Ruling: Don’t Sweat ‘em. 


Randy Moss, WR, San Francisco 49ers


Moss caught two passes for 75 yards, but doesn’t get enough looks.

Ruling: Don’t Sweat ‘em. 


Mike Williams,  WR, Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Williams caught four passes for 113 yards and a score. It’s his third touchdown on the year and second straight game with over 100 yards.

Ruling: Get ‘em.
