FF – Get & Forget week 13











- FANFOOD GET & FORGET week 13- 



The next edition of the FANFOOD GET & FORGET will be about the players that may be sitting there as FAs. Every year there are players that will emerge off the fantasy football waiver wire to be solid additions for a fantasy football team. Good work on the waiver wire involves knowing who is on the radar just before their stock goes through the roof after a huge game or a string of solid starts. Every Tuesday we will sift through the noise and point out some players that you should GET & the ones you can FORGET.


Here are ALL the 2013 FANFOOD GET & FORGETs

Lets get to it!


At this point, you likely find yourself in one of three situations: 1) you’ve clinched a playoff spot and are gearing up for a final push, (2) you’re still alive for the postseason but you need your squad to deliver in week 13 or (3) your team is sunk, yet you’re still reading blog posts about the waiver wire to salvage whatever fleeting pride you have left. Whatever bucket you fall into, there’s no denying there is plenty at stake.

It’s important to know what in going on when it comes to injuries in the NFL. There might just be that replacement player that puts you over the top.


NFL Injury Roundup Week 12


The biggest fantasy related injury this weekend for many people was to Rams’ running back Zac Stacy. He went down late in the second quarter against the Bears with a head injury. He was evaluated at halftime and ruled out with a concussion. His stat line was up to 87 yards and a touchdown on 12 carries and a 10-yard reception when he was forced from the game. Benny Cunningham took the lead role after that and went on to run for 109 yards and a touchdown on 13 carries in the second half. It would have been interesting to see what Stacy could have done against the inept Bears’ run defense if he had stayed healthy.

Chris Ivory injured his ankle on his first carry of the game, but played through the injury. He revealed after Sunday’s loss to the Ravens that he’d likely undergo an MRI on his injured ankle. He finished the game with nine carries for 35 yards.

Ryan Mathews has been dealing with a hamstring injury the past couple weeks and had to leave the game against Kansas City with a hamstring injury in the third quarter. At this time we don’t know if he reinjured the same hamstring or if this is a new injury. He has been playing very well of late and had rushed 14 times for 55 yards with a touchdown and caught two passes for 10 yards.

Denver CBS Sportscaster Vic Lombardi reports that Knowshon Moreno was on crutches after the game. Moreno had to leave the game after injuring his ankle in overtime, but came back in after a couple plays. It was a heroic effort by Moreno who rushed for 224 yards on a whopping 37 carries. We’ll keep you updated on his status.

T.Y. Hilton hurt his shoulder in the first half but missed just a couple plays. It initially appeared like it could have been much worse. Hilton was on the ground for a couple minutes, but eventually walked off under his own power and then returned to the field later.

Mychal Rivera was hit hard by Titans’ safety Michael Griffin during the second quarter and had to leave the game with a concussion. The Raiders play on Thanksgiving so he’ll probably miss next week.

Daniel Thomas left Sunday’s game against the Panthers in the third quarter with a left ankle injury. The extent of the injury is unknown, but it did look significant. If he misses time, Lamar Miller would become a more attractive fantasy player.

Jason Campbell fumbled on a sack in the third quarter and had to be carted off the field with a head injury. Campbell only completed 14-of-22 passes for 124 yards before leaving. Brandon Weeden replaced him at quarterback and helped Josh Gordon to a big game in garbage time, but not much else.

Darrelle Revis left Sunday’s game due to a groin injury and did not return. Steve Smith would be the #1 receiver who gets an upgrade next week if Revis can’t go.

FOX Sports’ Mike Garafolo reports Kansas City outside linebacker Tamba Hali has been initially diagnosed with a mid-inside ankle sprain. That’s good news if it holds up, but we’ll know more after he gets an MRI.

Kansas City’s other star outside linebacker Justin Houston sustained a subluxed elbow in Sunday’s game. That means his elbow popped out of place for those of you who want a visual. The extent of the injury won’t be known until an MRI reveals any ligament damage.

Antonio Cromartie told reporters his hip “gave out on me a little bit” in Sunday’s loss to the Ravens. Cromartie has dealt with hip problems off and on since he broke his right hip while with the Chargers in 2008. The injury on Sunday was of the non-contact variety and could point to something more severe.

Other Injury Notes:

Johnathan Franklin suffered a possible concussion on the opening kickoff against the Vikings. . . . Broncos’ cornerback Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie was forced from Sunday night’s game against the Patriots with a shoulder injury. . . . Joe Webb left the game against the Packers with a possible concussion. . . . Broncos’ strong safety Duke Ihenacho left the game after taking a helmet-to-helmet hit from teammate Wesley Woodyard in the second quarter. . . . CBS Sports’ Jason La Canfora reports Steelers nose tackle Steve McLendon will “miss a few weeks” with an ankle injury. . . . Patriots right tackle Marcus Cannon suffered a first quarter ankle injury. . . . Raiders cornerback Mike Jenkins sustained a concussion in Sunday’s loss to the Titans. . . . Cowboys’ cornerback Morris Claiborne had to leave the game against the Giants with a hamstring injury, the same injury he has been dealing with this season. . . . Lions’ cornerback Chris Houston left the Buccaneers’ game with a hamstring injury after getting beat for an 85-yard touchdown to Tiquan Underwood. . . . Rams’ cornerback Trumaine Johnson suffered a concussion and had to leave the Bears game. . . . Rams’ left guard Chris Williams also had to leave their game with a concussion.

Here are some free agents that we think you should GET and ones you need to FORGET heading into week 13 of the season, followed by a recipe for BBQ’d Sriracha Chicken


1Nate Burleson WR DET
2Dennis Johnson RB HOU
3Benny Cunningham RB STL
4Justin Hunter WR TEN
5Cordarrelle Patterson WR MIN
6Brandon Bolden RB NE
7Bilal Powell RB NYJ
8Julian Edelman WR NE
9Miles Austin WR DAL
10Dennis Pitta TE BAL




GETNate Burleson


from Fantasy Trade 411:
Nate Burleson’s love of pizza may have derailed his season back in Week 3, but he was averaging almost 8 targets and close to 80 receiving yards in those three games and picked up right where he left off with seven catches on 10 targets for 77 yards and a score in Week 12.
from gridiron experts:
Nate Burleson completely bypassed the gradual “getting used to things” stage of a usual comeback. He had a season-high 10 targets on Sunday after missing seven games due to a forearm injury. Remember? The freak car accident caused by a pizza? Anyway, Burleson should be the hottest commodity on the waiver wire this week. He’s worth most of your remaining free agent budget at this point.
from fantasyfootballfreaks:
The Lions #2 receiver was back in the lineup for the first time since breaking his forearm back in week 3. He looked solid with 7 catches for 77 yards and a score. He’s scored at least 7 fantasy points in 3 of his 4 starts this season and should continue to be productive as opponents have no choice but to put most of their efforts into stopping Megatron.


FANFOOD SAYS: GET in ALL leagues as Depth and a possible starter.


Cordarrelle Patterson


from hattywaiverwireguru:
now is the time to grab Patterson if he is available. He is not a weekly starter by any means, but by play-off time he may be usable. Stash him.
from rotoworld:
Cordarrelle Patterson started at split end in Sunday’s tie with the Packers. The Vikings are finally taking the chains off their prized rookie. He started ahead of Jerome Simpson again and saw 11 targets, hauling in eight of them for 54 yards. This comes on the heels of a nine-target outing in Week 11. Patterson is still limited to mostly quick screens, but just getting the ball in his hands will prove effective. There’s some deep-league appeal here as the Vikes are showing faith


FANFOOD SAYS: I wouldn’t blame you if you pick him up and see what happens.  Can he be trusted in the Fantasy Playoffs?


Dennis Johnson


from gridiron experts:
Ben Tate is still the starter in Houston, but it looks like he may have helped give Dennis Johnson more than just a backup running back role. Johnson totaled 13 carries for 74 yards (5.7 yards per carry) after Tate mustered just one yard on seven carries in the Texans’ loss to the Jaguars on Sunday. With Arian Foster out for the season and Ben Tate struggling, Johnson is a nice addition for your late-season roster.
from fantasyfootballfreaks:
Johnson got into the action against the Jaguars with Ben Tate proving ineffective. His final line was 13 carries for 74 yards and 2 catches for 13 yards. We’re not sure what kind of workload split the Texans will sport next week, but Johnson has likely earned himself a bigger role. While not a fantasy starter at this point, he is worth keeping an eye on.
from footballdocs:
The Texans have fallen apart, and Tate struggled with sore ribs against the Jags. Johnson on the other hand was much more productive with his carries gaining 74 yards on 13 carries and 13 receiving yards on 2 receptions. Johnson had success at Arkansas and is built low to the ground like Maurice Jones-Drew. He also has good hands like MJD. Tate will remain the starter, but his ribs are problematic. For those in very deep leagues needing help at RB, we wanted to bring the situation with Johnson to your attention. Johnson is owned in less than 1% of fantasy leagues, making him immediately available for pick-up in virtually all leagues.


FANFOOD SAYS: Dennis is that guy that could be the replacement you are looking for to help you win your league championship.


Julian Edelman


from hattywaiverwireguru:
Aaron Dobson did not see much of the field on Sunday night. Thompkins and especially Edelman was targeted in the come-back win. Edelman is a better pick-up than Thompkins, but you really have to temper expectations weekly.
from footballdocs:
The thing with the Pats is you just never really know who is going to pop the big game at WR this year. Under the bright lights of Sunday Night Football, Edelman’s number was called, and he responded with a big game pulling in 9 catches on 11 targets for 110 yards and 2 TDs. At least in that game, Edelman and Brady were completely in sync. Wide receivers are streaky and can get hot, and production like that in a very remarkable comeback win can oftentimes carry over for a few weeks.
from rotoworld:
Julian Edelman had nine catches for 110 yards and two touchdowns in Sunday night’s Week 12 win over the Broncos. With Danny Amendola held in check, Edelman played a major role in the Patriots’ second-half comeback. He scored on a five-yard fade to the back of the end-zone for his first touchdown and later connected with Tom Brady for a 14-yard strike in the fourth quarter. Edelman led New England in receiving and tied Shane Vereen for a team-high 11 targets. The touchdowns were his first since the opening week of the season. Edelman remains just a WR4 stash in deeper re-draft leagues.


FANFOOD SAYS: Don’t Chase the numbers, but he if you are in a league that rewards return points, he could produce for you, but don’t count on it. 


Dennis Pitta


from hattywaiverwireguru:
should be back for fantasy play-offs and should be stashed now if you are in need of a back-up TE.
from rotoworld:
Dennis Pitta (hip, short-term I.R.) participated in the Ravens’ Monday walkthrough. The Ravens are getting set to face Pittsburgh on Thanksgiving’s finale game. Pitta is increasing his practice reps, but is not considered a candidate to play in a game before Week 14. He’s worth stashing as an injured TE2.


FANFOOD SAYS: Sure why not? he was a high rated TE coming into the season, so if you have a bench spot you could do worse.


Ladarius Green


from fantasyalarm:
The sleeper choice, out of this group, is the Chargers’ TE Ladarius Green who has 80 or more yards receiving in each of his last two games with a YAC/REC average over 14 yards. Defenses will be focusing on how to stop Keenan Allen, Danny Woodhead and Antonio Gates, thus Green should have plenty of opportunities to find holes in the defense and take advantage of the mismatches with his size, strength and speed that have allowed him to make things happen after he makes the catch.
from fantasyfootballfreaks:
Over the last 2 games, the Chargers TE has 7 catches for 161 yards and a TD. Knowing that, it sounds odd, but he is only on the cusp of being a great option at TE. He won’t get over that last hurdle as long as Antonio Gates is around. For that reason, I wouldn’t be surprised if he is boom or bust the rest of the way. Of course, his freakish skills have me thinking there are much worse options to gamble on.
from lesterslegends:
Ladarius Green caught three of five targets for 80 yards and a touchdown against the Kansas City Chiefs. He had 81 yards last week and is coming on. I’d still hesitate to add him.


FANFOOD SAYS: He is someone to consider and get if you are in a pinch. At this point, you do not need to be rolling the dice 




DST Streamer week 12:

vs JAX


from FantasyTrade411:
This is not the time of year to get nostalgic and use a fantasy defense just because they were the ones who got you here. Case in point, the Chiefs have by far been the best fantasy defense this year, but they’ve also put up a whopping total of negative-eight points over the past two weeks and have to play the Broncos and Redskins over the next two weeks (neither of which are a great matchup). So who do you grab for Week 13 if not the Chiefs? I’m planting my flag in the Cleveland Browns this week. They play a Jaguars team who is allowing over 12 fantasy points per game to opposing D/ST. This is more of a knock on the Jaguars than it is an endorsement of the Browns, but Cleveland’s D/ST is averaging just around eight fantasy points per game this season and should be able to at least equal that total in Week 13 at home against the lowly Jaguars.
from Gridiron Experts:
I would definitely give the Browns D/ST a shot for Week 13 if a streaming option is needed. They’re up against a Jacksonville Jaguars’ offense that is second in the league in interceptions (16), tied for third in sacks allowed (37) and are by far dead last in points scored (142).
from rotoprofessor:
The “hot” Jaguars won their second game of the season (two of the past three), though scored just 13 points in the process. They’ve managed just 12.9 points per game, by far the worst in the league.Cleveland’s defense has forced just 13 turnovers, so it’s hard to say they are a given to stymy the Jaguars. They do still have Maurice Jones-Drew (while he appears to be a shell of his former self, he is coming off a game with 84 yards and 1 TD on 14 carries) and Cecil Shorts (8 catches for 71 yards). This is a good gamble to take, but it shouldn’t be considered the best stream of the week.
from fantasySP:
Another team of note this week is the Cleveland defense against Jacksonville. The Jags may be coming off a win but they have only managed to put up 12.9 points per game this year and 27 points in their last two games which coincides with their yearly mark. Chad Henne has 1 touchdown pass and 4 picks in his last three games.


FANFOOD SAYS: If you have been streaming DSTs all year, you know that you need to get any squad that faces the Jags, so why stop now?

but don’t just take our word for it, see what other’s have to say.
