FF – Get & Forget week 14











- FANFOOD GET & FORGET week 14- 


Welcome to the start of the Fake Football Playoffs. If you’re reading this, there’s a good chance you’ve qualified for your league’s fantasy postseason.

There is no need to rock the boat and make wholesale changes to your squad, especially if you sit atop your league standings. You may need reinforcements due to injuries/poor play or you’re merely looking for an insurance policy or you might just want to roll the dice and stick it to the higher seed. Either way, there are some interesting options out there for your team this week and and if you to bolster your roster for the stretch run.

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

Week 14 Injury Report


There weren’t any calamitous injuries to the precious fake football elite this week, but there were some close calls and other bits and pieces of injury news to digest from Sunday’s slate of games and here they are!

Brandon Weeden was diagnosed with a concussion following Sunday’s loss to the Jaguars. He went 24-of-40 for 370 yards with three touchdowns; two interceptions and a lost fumble in the game, helping Josh Gordon to a huge 10/261/2 line. Backup quarterback Jason Campbell is also dealing with a concussion, which would leave recent signee Alex Tanney as the only healthy quarterback going into Week 14 against the Patriots.

Kenbrell Thompkins left the Houston game after going up high to make a catch and landing hard on his hip. Thompkins played another down, but was in noticeable pain and came off the field. Aaron Dobson (foot) was inactive and Josh Boyce received most of the snaps in Thompkins’ absence, but not the targets.

Christian Ponder exited Sunday’s game against the Bears with a concussion. Ponder’s injury occurred toward the end of the second quarter. He was a pitiful 3-of-8 passing for 40 yards before he left. Matt Cassel started the second half and finished the day 20-of-33 for 243 yards, one touchdown and one interception along with the overtime win. Neither is a NFL caliber starting quarterback, but Cassel may have won the job for another week.

Delanie Walker suffered a concussion in the first quarter against Indianapolis. This came on the heels of a nice stretch of games for Walker and at an inopportune time for the Titans who were actually in the wildcard race.

C.J. Spiller tweaked his left ankle late in the first half and was a little gimpy as he came back onto the field. He still managed to run for a 36-yard touchdown after his ankle re-tweaking and looked great doing so. It seems like his ankles just aren’t going to be 100%, but as long as he’s able to run he’s still going to do Spilleresque things.

Darrelle Revis was forced from Sunday’s game against the Panthers with a shoulder/chest injury. He took a hard fall in the third quarter and never returned to the game. His removal may have just been due to caution in a game in which the Bucs were being blown out, but we’ll know more later.

Rob Gronkowski came up limping after being tackled in Sunday’s game against the Texans, but finished the game and all reports seem to be favorable that he didn’t do any long term damage.

The initial diagnosis on 49ers left tackle Joe Staley is a sprained MCL in his right knee. The Sacramento Bee reports Staley will miss the Week 14 game against the Seahawks. He will receive a MRI on Monday and we’ll know more about the severity after. The loss of Staley for any amount of time is a concern for the 49ers offense as he’s been Pro Football Focus’ best tackle this season.

Branden Albert went down with a knee injury against the Broncos and had to leave on a cart. He will receive a MRI on Monday, which will give us a timetable, but a source tells ProFootballTalk.com that the “current thinking” is that he dodged a serious injury.

Strong safety Reed Doughty suffered a concussion in Sunday night’s game against the Giants. It’s the second concussion Doughty has suffered this season, so he could have trouble getting cleared for Week 14.

Josh Gordon exited Sunday’s game against the Jaguars with a head injury in the third quarter after taking an illegal hit on the sideline. It looked like his day might have been done after going into the locker room for concussion tests, but he passed and came back to dominate even more, so should be good to go.

The NFL Network reported Sunday morning that Aaron Rodgers is no lock to return this this season, and ESPN’s Chris Mortensen confirms that report, saying, “it will take a strong consensus from doctors and the team’s hierarchy to return him to the playing field next Sunday.” Mortensen goes on to say the Packers’ brass are “conflicted” because Rodgers wants to play but their 5-6-1 team doesn’t control their playoff hopes at the moment.

Jordan Reed was expected to play Sunday night, but the Redskins scratched him after he suffered a pre-game headache. The fact that the concussion is lingering makes his status for next week somewhat in doubt, but we’ll learn more during the week.

Cardinals coach Bruce Arians acknowledged following Sunday’s loss that Andre Ellington was “never close” to playing after hurting his knee during practice. The team hadn’t given that impression heading into the game against Philadelphia so this injury could leave him questionable for next week.

Other Injury Notes:

Josh Cribbs will undergo a Monday MRI after exiting Sunday’s game with shoulder and chest pain. . . . Santonio Holmes (hamstring) lasted only three snaps before leaving Sunday’s Week 13 loss to Miami. . . . Demaryius Thomas exited Sunday’s Chiefs-Broncos game with a shoulder injury, but returned in the second quarter. . . . Panthers’ defensive tackle Dwan Edwards was forced from Sunday’s game against the Bucs with a leg injury. . . . Panthers’ linebacker and special teams leader Jordan Senn was forced from the game with a hamstring injury. . . . Rams left tackle Jake Long was forced from Sunday’s game against the 49ers with a head injury.

Julian Edelman

from the The Fake Football:
If Julian Edelman is still hanging around sipping a cold one on your waiver wire, be sure to get a claim in on him immediately. Edelman has 12 and 11 targets over the last two weeks and has looked very solid along the way. Especially in PPR leagues, Edelman will be a force throughout the fantasy playoffs as handsome Tom Brady continues to feed him the ball. CLE, MIA, BAL isn’t the most wide receiver friendly fantasy playoff schedule, but I will take Edelman’s target volume any day.
from RotoBaller:
Julian Edelman was a critical part of the Patriots offense earlier in the season when the team was dealing with injuries to Gronk, Vereen and Amendola. As each player returned to the lineup, Edelman’s role consequently decreased in the offense and his snaps/targets became very limited as the fourth or fifth receiving option on the team. But in the past two weeks, the Patriots have been utilizing Edelman much more heavily, and he looks to be playing over Amendola. In Week 12, Edelman had a huge game with 11 targets, nine receptions, 110 receiving yards and two touchdowns; Edelman followed up that performance with another gem this past Sunday, racking up nine catches and 101 receiving yards on 12 targets. At this point, Edelman must be owned in all leagues, as Tom Brady and the Patriots will be feeding him the pigskin next week and throughout the playoffs. In standard leagues, he’s a WR3 with upside, and in PPR leagues, Edelman has re-emerged as a WR3/WR2 option with upside.


FANFOOD SAYS: Get in ALL leagues if available




Mike Tolbert


from rotoworld:
Mike Tolbert rushed nine times for 48 yards in Carolina’s Week 13 win over the Bucs, adding three catches for an additional 41 yards. With DeAngelo Williams (quad) inactive, Tolbert managed 47 more yards than Jonathan Stewart on four fewer touches. Getting held out of the end zone still made it a mediocre fantasy day, however. Tolbert’s goal-line carries will make him the favorite for points in Carolina’s backfield during the fantasy playoffs, but he’s still a touchdown-dependent FLEX option. Ideally, he’s your fourth running back.
from cbssports:
Though he didn’t get the start with DeAngelo Williams sidelined by a quadriceps injury, running back Mike Tolbert proved to be the Panthers’ most effective backfield option Week 13 against the Buccaneers. Jonathan Stewart, who did start, led the team with 14 carries, but for only 39 yards. And most of those carries came either early in the game, when the Panthers hadn’t gotten a chance to switch gears yet, or late in the game, when the outcome was already decided. Tolbert carried the load in the second and third quarters, rushing nine times for 48 yards and catching three passes for 41. Unlike Stewart, who was unable to extend plays, Tolbert excelled in traffic, using his size to bounce off defenders. Williams’ status going forward is unknown, but Tolbert will look to make the most of whatever opportunities he gets Week 14 at New Orleans.


FANFOOD SAYS: Forget in ALL leagues, because if you are in your league playoffs, you have better options




Brandon LaFell


from rotoworld:
Brandon LaFell caught three passes for 36 yards and a touchdown in Carolina’s Week 13 win over the Bucs. LaFell’s second score in three games was his fourth of the season. LaFell is the Panthers’ nominal No. 2 receiver, but it’s not a reliable fantasy position in a run-based offense. With 75 percent of the year now in the books, LaFell is on pace for 57 catches, 708 yards and five scores. All three totals would be new career highs.
from cbssports:
Panthers wide receiver Brandon LaFell scored a touchdown for the second time in three games Week 13 against the Buccaneers, grabbing a 16-yard screamer from quarterback Cam Newton in the back of the end zone midway through the first quarter. It was one of just three catches he had on the day, though, totaling 36 yards.He came close to having much bigger numbers, getting open on a deep ball that likely would have resulted in a touchdown late in the second quarter if Newton hadn’t overthrown him. In all, LaFell had seven targets, tying him with tight end Greg Olsen for the team lead. LaFell has had at least seven targets in four of his last five games, but he has put up less than 50 yards in three of them. He’ll look to make better use of his targets Week 14 at New Orleans.


FANFOOD SAYS: Get in 14+team leagues as WR depth, you probably won’t need to start him




Andre Holmes


from rotoworld:
Coach Dennis Allen referred to Andre Holmes as “a guy, obviously, that we feel very comfortable with.” The Raiders have had no problems starting Holmes as Denarius Moore (shoulder) has missed the last two games. The second-year pro has totaled nine catches for 168 yards during that span, showing a strong rapport with fellow former backup Matt McGloin. In Week 14, the Raiders get to face a Jets secondary that’s getting toasted over the top on a weekly basis. If Moore sits, the size/speed freak Holmes would be a WR4 with upside
from cbssports:
With Raiders wide receiver Denarius Moore sidelined a second straight game with a shoulder injury, wide receiver Andre Holmes stole the show in the Oakland passing game Week 13 at Dallas with a career performance.Holmes entered Thursday with just five catches for 76 yards in 12 career NFL games. He broke out against the Cowboys for seven catches for 136 yards — both team highs. Holmes, who was targeted a team-high 11 times, didn’t have a catch less than 10 yards and had four catches of at least 20 yards. Holmes came close to his first career touchdown in the second quarter, as initially he was given a 16-yard touchdown at the 10:33 mark. But the call was reversed after a replay showed Holmes knee was down before he stretched the football across the goal line. One play later, Rashad Jennings had a 1-yard touchdown run. Holmes’ longest reception came on a 35-yard catch-and-run to the Cowboys’ 21-yard line in the fourth quarter. Holmes was wide open on a slant route across the middle of the field and ran for some time before being brought down by a Dallas defender. Holmes was targeted on a 27-yard touchdown pass late in the fourth quarter, but the pass was badly thrown out of bounds by Matt McGloin. The Raiders are back in action Week 14 at N.Y. Jets.


FANFOOD SAYS: If you are needing a starting WR off the waiver wire, you need more than holmes.




Brian Hartline


from rotoworld:
Brian Hartline caught nine passes for 127 yards and a touchdown in Sunday’s Week 13 win over the Jets. Hartline led the Dolphins in receiving and finished with a team-high 15 targets. He was able to take advantage when matched up with Dee Milliner in coverage, and beat Antonio Cromartie on a 31-yard slant route for a touchdown in the third quarter. It was just his second 100-yard game of the season. Hartline has 62 receptions for 804 yards and three touchdowns through 12 games. His lack of big-play ability will continue to limit him as a WR4 going forward.
from cbssports:
Dolphins wide receiver Brian Hartline broke out in Week 13 against the Jets, as he led the team in receiving in a 23-3 win. Hartline was targeted 15 times in the passing game, and took advantage in a season-best performance. He led the team with nine receptions for 127 yards, 31 of which came on his third touchdown of the season. He matched his season-high in catches, while edging out his Week 1 total of 114 yards. Hartline is edging closer to his second 1,000-yard season in a row. He heads into Week 14 against the Steelers with 62 receptions for 804 yards.


FANFOOD SAYS: If for some reason he is available, scoop him up now you might even consider starting him.




LeGarrette Blount


from rotoworld:
LeGarrette Blount was the Patriots’ primary “big back” in their Week 13 win over the Texans, rushing 12 times for 44 yards and a touchdown. With fellow fumbler Stevan Ridley a healthy scratch, Blount surprisingly out-touched Brandon Bolden 12-4. He lost a potential second score to FB James Develin. With New England’s backfield now in all-out chaos mode, there’s no telling how things might unfold in Week 14 against the Browns, but Blount shouldn’t be trusted in any format for the first week of the fantasy playoffs.
from cbssports:
With Stevan Ridley a healthy scratch Sunday at Houston, Patriots running back LeGarrette Blount benefited, as he posted a team-high 44 rushing yards and scored a touchdown in a 34-31 win Week 13. Blount’s third rushing touchdown this season came on a 7-yard run in the fourth quarter. It was an impressive individual effort, as Blount lowered his head and shoulders and broke two tackles on his way to the end zone. Blount has finished with at least 40 rushing yards in four of his last five games. He has two rushing touchdowns in his last four games. The Patriots are back in action Week 14 vs. Cleveland.


FANFOOD SAYS: If you are requiring his services, you are probably not going to win your matchup.




DST Streamer week 14:

vs NYJ


from FFStarters:
Looking for a high upside defense for week 14? The Oakland Raiders are available in over 90% of Yahoo leagues and get the turnover challenged New York Jets this week. It doesn’t matter if it’s Geno Smith or Matt Simms under center for the Jets; neither is capable of making it through a game without turnovers and sacks. The Raiders are not a special defense and rank pretty much in the bottom 3rd in defensive fantasy points scored, but when playing the waiver wire for a defense, you look for the plus matchups. There is no better plus matchup this week than Oakland’s defense facing the Jets offense.
from The Fake Football:
As we hit the first week of the fantasy playoffs, I would look to stream Oakland for their Week 14 matchup with the New York Jets. Opposing defenses have been absolutely feasting on the Jets lately, and the debate between Geno Smith and Matt Simms sounds like a debate between tons of points and tons of points for D/ST streamers.
from RotoBaller:
The New York Jets offense and Geno Smith have been horrible the past few weeks, making them a goldmine for fantasy owners who are streaming defenses on a weekly basis. This past week, the Jets scored just three points while giving up four sacks, two interceptions and a fumble — good for 17 fantasy points to the opposing defense. In Week 12, the Jets gave up 16 fantasy points to the Ravens D/ST, and in Week 11 they allowed 19 points to the Bills. Make sure to add the Oakland Raiders defense this week, as they are the next team to shut down the Jets offense and rack up points for fantasy owners. Another intriguing matchup comes as the Raiders play a Jets team who have committed to Geno Smith at quarterback despite him not completing more than 10 passes in a game for over a month. The Raiders are -3 in the giveaway / takeaway battle this year, but the Jets are a league worst -18 so opportunity awaits in Week 14.


FANFOOD SAYS: If you are streaming, and don’t have a lot of options, consider Oakland 



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