FF week 12: Time to delve

HIGH_HEAT2[300x250]

The stat line for Mike “60 Minutes” Wallace was 1 reception for 9 yards and 6 targets. The catch came on the last desperation play of game with and immediate lateral. You cannot trust any of the STEELERS skill players right now. As for the rest of the NFL and the FF impacts, here are the booms and busts of week 12 followed by a recipe for Lamb Shish Kabobs with Yogurt Sauce.

 

 

Boom

 

Andre Johnson had another big game, catching nine balls for 188 yards. That makes 23 receptions, 461 yards, and a touchdown in the past two weeks.

 

In the past two weeks, Robert Griffin III, “Bobby Tre” has thrown for 511 yards, eight touchdowns, and just one interception, while running for another 113 yards.

 

Andy Dalton has come on strong of late. He had thrown an interception in each of his first eight games, but in his last three has thrown nine touchdowns and zero interceptions. In those three games he ranks as the third best fantasy quarterback.

 

Eli Manning had gone three games without throwing a touchdown and hadn’t thrown multiple touchdowns since week five against the Browns. Some rest and Green Bay coming to town helped him to 249 yards passing and three touchdowns. The Giants get Washington and New Orleans the next two weeks, which should keep Eli in the money passing stats.

 

BenJarvus Green-Ellis aka “Law Firm” had the best rushing day of Sunday’s games with 129 yards and a touchdown on 19 carries. After never topping 33 yards on a single carry in his career, he did it twice against the Raiders.

 

Reggie Wayne Manor just continues to accumulate targets and receptions this season. His eight receptions on 14 targets for 102 yards puts him at a league leading 84 receptions and league runner-upping 1105 yards.

 

Doug Martin the Muscle Hamster didn’t put up huge yardage numbers, but found the end zone twice.

 

Michael Bush “the backup” ended up as lead back after Matt Forte went down with an ankle injury. He finished the day with 21 carries for just 60 yards, but two touchdowns vaulted him into fantasy relevance.

 

Knowshon Moreno. Know this about knowshon, they like his pass blocking abilities making him the starter in Denver. He had over 100 yards and will top the waiver wire this week.

 

Cecil Shorts. “Get Shorty” continues to play at a high fantasy level. He caught four passes for 105 yards and a touchdown which was his third 100 yard game in the last five and his fourth touchdown in the last six.

 

Trent Richardson. “Get T-Rich the Ball”. Over his last four games he has a league high 30.8 touches a game and this week against the Steelers he had 33 touches for 112 total yards and a touchdown. His usage makes him fantasy gold.

 

Chris Wells. “Beanie” didn’t take long to get back into the touchdown groove with two touchdowns in his first game since Week three.

 

Demaryius Thomas. D Train led the way with four receptions for 82 yards and a spectacular 30-yard touchdown reception.

 

C.J. Spiller. Spiller took over the starting job and finished the day with 14 carries for 107 yards and pushed his record pace 6.6 yards per carry to 6.8 yards a carry.

 

Colin Kaepernick. “Special K” continues to show of his skills. I still think Alex Smith is getting the raw deal in San Fran, There has been a lot of buzz about this and keeping the Niners in the news. I think that the team should play both every week, but that is not good for FF.

 

Andy Dalton “Candyed Ginger” threw for 210 yards and three touchdowns. In his last three games, he has 639 yards, nine touchdowns and no interceptions.

 

Bryce Brown. “The BB” rushed for 178 yards and two touchdowns on 19 carries and caught four passes for 11 yards in last night’s loss to the Panthers. Brown, in his first career start in place of the injured McCoy busted out of the gates and was really the only Eagle to show up against Carolina. The only blemishes on the night were two lost fumbles due to not holding the ball close to the body. Brown has a match with the Cowboys in Week 13, who are down to Ernie Sims and Dan Connor at inside linebacker.

 

Joe Flacco. “The Unibrow” had a strange night. His stat line started out 8-for-16 for 59 yards in the first, but finished 30-for-51 for 355 yards and a score.

 

Bust

 

Marshawn Lynch. The Seahawks road woes coupled with the Dolphins rush defense, doomed Lynch today. He was coming off four straight 100+ yard games and three straight games with a touchdown.

 

Matt Forte. Forte reinjured his ankle, but before that he was vultured by Michael Bush twice at the goal line. Bush hadn’t scored since week three, but that’s of little consolation to Forte owners who lost out on possible touchdowns and had their running back hurt.

 

Mike Wallace. His poor game wasn’t a surprise, but 1 for nine on six targets is disappointing. There is plenty of blame to go around.

 

Vernon Davis. After a big game against the Bears with Colin Kaepernick at the helm, there was a glimmer of hope for a late season surge, but he laid a big fat goose egg instead.

 

Jimmy Graham. Graham was on the sidelines way too much and didn’t help his FF teams much this week.
