No one on a bye in week 12.

Now with the up coming #ByeWeekBlues in week 13 (Cleveland, Tennessee)

Please check back as I’m going to look through the players and stats one time to see if I missed anyone. All UPDATES are in RED!!!!

I’ll be telling you to Hold or Fold some of the players I put up on the waivers next week.

Week 11 Review – HOLD or FOLD – On my HOLD

or FOLD if I have a HOLD on the player and they are available they are still a pick up.


Rob Ninkovich- DE/OLB NE: 2 Solos, 1 SK, 1 QBHit, 1 FF on 41/65% of the snaps>>>HOLD>>> Ninkovich has two SKs in the last two games and has the NYJ next that love to give points to DEs (fifth most).

Jared Crick- DE DEN: #ByeWeekBlues Week 11; Crick had a good week 10 with 4 Solos, 2 AST,1 FF on only 47 snaps but it was 92% of the snaps and with KC (4th most pts to DEs) up next that gave up 4 SKs this week to CAR DL.

Robert Ayers- DE TB: 1 AST, 1 QBHit on 34/64% 0f the snaps>>>FOLD>>> None of the DEs on TB are getting the majority of the snaps expected Spence so until someone steps up I can’t start them.

Noah Spence (R) DE TB: STREAMER; 3 Solos, 1 AST on 37/70% of the snaps>>>FOLD/HOLD DYNASTY>>> Just not getting the snaps yet to make him an every week starter.


Dannell Ellerbe- OLB NO: 2 Solos, 2 AST, 2 TFL, 1 SK, 2 QBHits on only 44/71% of the snaps>>>HOLD>>> Ellerbe is just getting back into football shape and will be picking up more snaps and has a great match up with LA in week 12 as they give up 7th most points to LBs.

Vincent Rey- OLB CIN: 5 Solos, 4 AST on 46/71% of the snaps>>>Wait and See>>>  Maualuga back to practice last week,  but he didn’t play in week 11 so we’ll have to see this week is he’ll play. If he doesn’y play Rey has a great matchup with BAL in week 12. They are giving up the 2nd most points to LBs.

Terrell Suggs- OLB BAL: 2 Solos, 1 AST 1 TFL, 2 OBHits on 48/68% of the snaps>>>HOLD>>> It was only his 2nd week back after being out for two weeks and in a ok week 11 and will be the same or better for this week. In the Playoff run in weeks 13 and 14 he has a great matchup.


Ed Reynolds- FS CLE: 4 Solos, 1 AST on 69/100% of the snaps>>>HOLD>>> He has the NYG in week 12 and with him playing 100% of the snaps and the G-Men giving up the 2nd most points to SS play him again.

George Iloka- FS CIN: 1 Solo on 65/100% of the snaps>>>HOLD>>> Don’t know what happened in week 11 as he’s had 19 Solos in the past three weeks and with BAL up next that gave up 11 Solos, 1 AST, 1 TFL DAL FS Byron Jones in week 11.

James Bradberry (R)- CB CAR: 3 Solos, 4 AST, 1 TFL on 75/100% of the snaps>>>HOLD>>> The Rookie had an ok week 11 but I look for him to improve in week 12 with his match up with OAK that give away the 11th most points to CBs.

Vonn Bell (R)- FS NO:Streamer; 2 Solos, 5 AST, 1 TFL, 1 PD on 58/94% of the snaps>>>FOLD>>> Don’t like the match with LA in week 12.

Daryl Worley (R)- CB CAR: 6 Solos, 3 AST on 75/100% of the snaps>>>HOLD>>> CAR other Rookie CB has put up 12 Solos in the last two weeks on 100% of the snaps and in week 11 with 6 Solos 3 AST and a good matchup with OAK up next.

Week 12


Mario Addison- DE CAR: I wish I would have jumped on the Addison bandwagon early he has 11 SKs  already and in week 11 he had 2 Solos, 1 AST, 2 TFL, 2 SKs, 2 QBHits, 1 FF on only 28/37% of the snaps. He is out playing Johnson, Ealy and the other DEs at CAR on less snaps. Look for him to pick up more snaps ROS.

Stephon Tuitt- DE PIT: With Heyward on IR now Tuitt is the man in PIT and in week 11 he had 4 Solos, 2 AST, 3 TFL, 2.50 SKs, 4 QBHits on 51/77% of the snaps. He’s had 3.5 SKs in the last two weeks and I think he could put up 3 Sols, 2 AST, 1 TFL, 1 SK in week 12.

Ezekiel Ansah: DE DET: I know that I had Ansah on my wire a few weeks ago when he came back and he hasn’t exactly been hitting it out of the park, but he’s been putting up decent numbers for fantasy. I see him stepping it up for the ROS and getting more snaps and fantasy points. He had 3 Solos, 1 AST, 4 QB’s (which means that he just about ready to put up some SKs) on 45/68% of the snaps.

Jared Odrick- DE JAC: In week 11 Odrick had a good week with 3 Solos, 1 TFL, 1 PD, 1 FF on 33/58% of the snaps and with BUF up next giving 3 Solos, 2 AST, 2 TFL, 1 SK, 1 QBHit, 1 PD to Michael Johnson DE CIN plus Buf gives away the 5th most points to DEs.


Bruce Irvin- OLB OAK: It looks like Irvin woke up in week 11 with 9 Solos, 1 AST, 2TFL, 1 SK, 1 QBHit and I like his Match for next week with CAR that gave away 2 SKs to NO OLB.

Derrick Morgan- DE TEN: Morgan has 8 SKs and 19 QBHits on the year, so in big SK leagues he is a must pick up and also going forward in regular leagues. In week 11 he had 2 SKs, 2 AST, 2 TFL, 2 SKs, 6 QBHits on 53/88% of the snaps. He has the Bears up next who gave up 5 SKs and 5 QBHits to the G-Men last week so look for Morgan to be ready to pick up a few SKs.

Edwin Jackson- (R) ILB IND: The 1st season player Jackson has moved ahead of McNary on the charts and is starting to get a chunk of the snaps as he did this week with 4 Solos, 3 AST, 1 SK, 1 QBHit on 49/69% of the snaps.

Nick Kwiatkoski (R)- ILB CHI: WATCH; With Freeman out for violating the leagues performance-enhancing substance policy for four weeks Kwiatkoski is going to start in his place. Now he’s going to be a watch right now to see how it goes. He makes good tackles, fights off blocks well, can get after the QB,  he can get skinny to get into the creases to get up field, and plays the run well.


Donte Whitner- SS WAS: I told you in week 10 to pick him up and I still see him in a few leagues. Week 10-6 Solos, 2 AST, 1 TFL on 67/100% of the snaps>>>HOLD>>> The old man is getting the snaps and the points so play him again. Week 11-8 Solos and 2 AST. (Great matchup with DAL in week 12 5th most points to Ss)

Kurt Coleman- SS CAR: Coleman had a great week 11 with 7 Solos, 2 AST, 1 PD on 100% of the snaps and with OAK up next doesn’t look like a good match up but I like it. OAK gave up 2 Solos, 1 AST, 2 PDs, 2 INT, 1 FF to Darian Stewart of DEN and I think Coleman will see a lot of snaps in week 12.

Byron Jones- FS DAL: Jones has been a TK machine the last two weeks with 17 Solos and with WAS up next giving away the 7th most points to Ss this year is a great matchup.

Rashaan Melvin- CB IND: With Patrick Robinson out, Melvin stepped in and had a great week  with 11 Solos, 2 PDs on 69/97% of the snaps and it doesn’t look like Robinson will be back for week 12.

Eli Apple (R)- CB NYG: The rookie is now playing close if not a 100% of the snaps for the game and just getting the flow of the game down. In week 11 he had 5 Solos, 4 AST, 1 TFL on 62/97% of the snaps and he has CLE up next.

Jeremy Lane- CB SEA: Lane stepped in for Shead who pulled his hamstring and could miss a few weeks and with TB up next that give away the 5th most points to CBs he’d be a good week 12 fill in. In week 11 he had 5 Solos, 1 AST on 78/98% of the snaps so if Shead doesn’t play in week 12 start him.
