Kyle Orton, Kansas City Chiefs – Kyle Orton is a quarterback that I have dumped on for many, many seasons. Don’t get me wrong, I don’t think he is a good option, but he may be the best one you have available to you. He will still make bad decisions and read defenses terribly, but the Bears, Packers and Raiders are awful against the pass. I my humble opinion (which is what you paid for) your best bet is listed directly below.
Rex Grossman, Washington Redskins The following is what I wrote last week… still true. 31, 17, 27, this is the passing defenses that Sexy Rexy faces in weeks 14, 15 and 16 respectively. Now if “good Rex” shows up he could put up 25 a game for you, if “bad Rex” shows up it could be the end of your fantasy season.
CJ Spiller, Buffalo Bills – With Fred Jackson out for the season, it was only a matter of time before the Bills turn to the versatile and highly drafted CJ Spiller to finally step up. With 22 touches in week 12 he did that and should continue to be a critical piece of the offense for the rest of the season. Best part is that 3 of the 4 teams he faces down the stretch have bad run defenses. Grab him.
Not so Obvious
Maurice Morris, Detroit Lions – Mo Morris is no Javid Best, he is not Kevin Smith and he probably isn’t even Keiland Williams. He is however, a starter this week on a team that can score playing against a team that gives up points.
Santana Moss, Washington Redskins – In for a penny in for a pound right? If Rex is Good so is his best deep threat. Moss has been battling injuries most of the season but he has declared himself “good to go” just in time for fantasy football playoffs. And remember, he plays the same terrible pass defenses that Rex plays down the stretch.
Riley Cooper, Philadelphia Eagles – It looks like Jeremy Maclin is going to miss more time which means that Riley Cooper will once again be the only WR in uniform that has the stones to go across the middle. Mike Vick looks like he will be out again too and since Vince Young can only hit receivers when they are in the dead middle of the field Cooper should continue to see plenty of off target balls coming his way.
