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.

Chris Ivory, RB, New Orleans Saints

Ivory ran for 72 yards and a touchdown on seven carries. He added a 13-yard catch. He doesn’t get enough opportunities.

Ruling:  Don’t Sweat ‘em.

Danario Alexander, WR, San Diego Chargers

Alexander caught five of seven targets for 134 yards and a touchdown. He has a ton of talent and has a chance to do some solid things. Staying healthy, which has been an issue in the past, will be the key.

Ruling:  Get ‘em.

Donald Jones, WR, Buffalo Bills

Jones caught six of ten targets for 74 yards and a touchdown. He’s particularly solid in PPR leagues, but probably isn’t worthy of a roster spot in standard leagues.



Ruling:  Get ‘em (PPR), Don’t Sweat ‘em (Standard)


Laurent Robinson, WR, Jacksonville Jaguars

Robinson was targeted 15 times in the loss to Indianapolis. He caught nine passes for 77 yards. He is a PPR option, but can be left alone in standard leagues.

Ruling:  Get ‘em (PPR), Don’t Sweat ‘em (Standard)

Mohamed Sanu, WR, Cincinnati Bengals

Sanu caught four of six targets for 47 yards and a touchdown. Look elsewhere.

Ruling:  Don’t Sweat ‘em.

Brandon Stokley, WR, Denver Broncos

Stokley caught four of five targets for 54 yards and a score. He’s only worth considering in deep PPR leagues.


Ruling:  Don’t Sweat ‘em.


Golden Tate, WR, Seattle Seahawks

Tate caught both of his targets for 51 yards and a touchdown. He also threw a touchdown pass. He’s still a risky play, but he’s up to six touchdowns on the year.


Ruling:  Get ‘em.

Jarius Wright, WR, Minnesota Vikings

Wright caught three of five passes for 65 yards and a touchdown. Nice debut, but you would have to see more to consider him.

Ruling:  Don’t Sweat ‘em.

Greg Olsen, TE, Carolina Panthers

Olsen caught nine of ten targets for 102 yards and two touchdowns. He’s a solid TE2 with some TE1 upside.


Ruling: Get ‘em.


Kyle Rudolph, TE, Minnesota Vikings

Rudolph may have been dropped in  your league after some poor performances. He caught seven of nine targets for 64 yards and a touchdown. There is no guarantee he’ll get good quarterback play again, plus he’s going on bye.

Ruling:  Don’t Sweat ‘em.
