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

Week 14 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.


Akiem Hicks- DE CHI: 4 Solos, 2 AST, 1 TFL, 1 SK, 1 QBHit, 1 PD on 66/92% of the snaps>>>HOLD>>> He has GB up next and it’s a good matchup as they give away the 9th most points to DEs.

Glenn Dorsey- NT/DT SF: 2 Solos, 1 TFL 43/51% of the snaps>>>FOLD>>> Don’t like the matchup.

Carl Nassib (R)- DE CLE: 1 Solo on 43/61% of the snaps>>>FOLD>>> He’s splitting snaps with the other DE and OLB.


Leonard Floyd (R)- OLB CHI: PICKUP 4 ROS; 2 Solos, 1 AST, 1 TFL, 1 QBHit on 62/86% of the snaps>>>HOLD>>> I know GB gives up the least amount of points to LB but in week 7 Floyd had 2 Solos, 1 AST, 1 TFL, 2 SKs, 3 QBHits, 1 FF, 1 FR, 1 TD against GB so play him!!!!

Nick Kwiatkoski (R)- ILB CHI: 4 Sols, 4 AST, 1 SK, 1 QBHit on 72/100% of the snaps>>>HOLD>>> Looking for another good week 15 from him as GB is a bad matchup for OLB but a good one for ILB as Freeman put up 10 Solos in week 7 vs GB.

Bruce Irvin- OLB OAK: 3 Solos on 48/87% of the snaps>>>HOLD>>> He’s been playing 100% of the snaps and off on his numbers but has a good matchup with SD in week 15.

James Harrison- OLB PIT: 1 Solo, 1 QBHit on 52/100% of the snaps>>>FOLD>>> It looks like Dupree has the edge in PIT now.

Whitney Mercilus- OLB HOU: 3 Solos, 4 QBHits, 1 PD, 1 FR on 62/93% of the snaps>>>HOLD>>> Had a good week 14 and has JAC up in week 15 with JAC that give up the 4th most points to LBs.

Edwin Jackson (R)- ILB IND: 3 Solos, 7 AST on 73/100% of the snaps>>>HOLD>>> With D’Qwell out the ROS for violating the league’s policy on performance-enhancing substances Edwin will be the every down backer in IND and a good matchup with MIN in week 15.


Byron Jones- FS DAL: 5 Solos, 1 PD 67/100% of the snaps>>>HOLD>>> I just like Jones vs TB.

Barry Church-SS DAL: 4 Solos, 4 AST, 1 PD on 66/99% of the snaps>>>HOLD>>> Should put up the same numbers or a little more.

Steven Nelson- CB KC: 2 Solos, 1 TFL, 3 PD on 74/99% of the snaps>>>HOLD>>> Hold only if you are hurting at CB, he has an ok matchup in week 15.

Sean Davis (R)- FS PIT: 6 Solos, 1 AST, 1 TFL,  2 SKs, 3 QBHits on 52/100%  of the snaps>>>HOLD>>> If you need a S for your playoff team he’s your guy,  so pick him up and play him the ROS.

Ha’Sean Clinton-Dix- CB GB: 3 Solos,1 AST on 71/100% of the snaps>>>FOLD>>> Bad matchup for week 15.

Kevin Byard (R)-FS TEN: 2 Solos, 2 AST, 2 QBHits on 38/58% of the snaps>>>FOLD>>> Lost some snaps and bad matchup.

Week 13


Kawann Short- DT CAR: Short has upped his game the last few weeks and in week 14 he had 3 Solos, 3 TFL, 2 SKs, 3 QBHits, 1 FF on 52/80% of the snaps and he has WAS up next that give the 4th most to DTs.

Romeo Okwara (R)- DE NYG: The Rookie stepped in for JPP and did well with 3 Solos, 5 AST, 1.5 TFL, 1 SK, 3 QBHits, 1 PD on 60/91% of the snaps. I like that he’s playing 91% of the game and he got up to speed and played well.

Nick Fairey- DT NO: Fairly has not played well this year but does have 5.5 SKs this year and he’s going to have a great matchup in week 15 with ARI that give away the most points to DTs. He had 6 Solos, 2 TFL, 1 SK, 1 QBHit on 45/70% of the snaps.

Andre Branch- DE MIA: I like the matchup with the NYJ in week 15 as Wake had 4 Solos, 2 SKs, 2 QBHit, 2 FF and Buckner had 10 Solos, 1 AST, 2 TFL, 2 SKs, 4 QBHits on Bryce Petty QB NYJ in week 14. Branch put up 3 Solos, 3 AST, 1 TFL, 1 SK, 1 QBHit, 1 PD, 1 FF on 51/71% of the snaps.


Stephone Anthony- OLB NO: Finally NO woke up and started playing Anthony in week 14 and he had a great game with 7 Solos, 2 AST, 1 TFL on 66/100% of the snaps. You can start him the ROS!

Ramik Wilson- ILB KC: With Johnson out the ROS with a ruptured Achilles Wilson snaps went up about 20% in week 14. I’ve had him on my watch list for a few weeks as he had 9 Solos in week 13 and 6 Solos, 2 AST, 1 PD on 58/77% of the snaps and I like his matchup in week 15. Also ILB AJ Alexander snap count will go up but have to watch and see what he makes out of it.

Bud Dupree- OLB PIT: Dupree had a great week 14 with 5 Solos, 3 TFL, 2 SKs, 2 QBHits on 51/88% of the snaps and in week 15 is a good matchup with CIN . Week 16 is a great matchup with BAL that give away the 3rd most points to LBs.

Gerald Hodges- ILB SF: Hodges had a great week with 8 Solos, 1 AST, 2 TFL, 1 SK, 1 QBHit on 61/73% of the snaps and with ATL it’s a good matchup for ILBs.

Emmanuel Ogbah (R)- OLB CLE: The rookie has been in the mix all year but  he’s picked up his snap count and getting into to NFL flow this week with 3 Solos, 3 AST, 1.50 TFL, 1.5 SKs, 3 QBHits on 59/83% of the snaps. He has BUF in week 15 that give DEs the 4th most points.

AJ Klein- ILB CAR: Klein had a good week filling in for Kuechly (concussion) and not sure if he’ll be cleared for week 15. He put up 4 Solos, 3 AST, 1 TFL, 1 SK, 1 QBHit, 1 FF on 53/82% of the snaps in week 14 and will be a pick up only if Kuechly is not playing.


Kurt Coleman- SS CAR:  I see that a lot of owners dropped Coleman when he was out in week 13 and if you were one or he is on your wire pick him up. He had 4 Solos, 3 PD, 1 INT on 65/100% of the snaps and he has WAS up in week 15 that give up the 4th most points to S.

Leodis McKelvin- CB PHI: McKelvin has been injured 7 out of the 14 games so far this year and has been so so as a fantasy player till week 13 and 14 and in week 14 he had 5 Solos, 4 PDs, 1 INT, 1 TD on only 48 (about 15 snaps short of a reg game) snaps but that was 100% of the snaps for the defense. He has BAL up and they pony up the 8th most points to CBs

Kareem Jackson- CB HOU: I’ve had Jackson up on my wire a few times this year and he’s up again as he has JAC up next the give the 2nd most to CBs this year. He has 12 solos in the last two weeks on 92% of the snaps.

Keith Tandy- SS TB: With Chris Conte out Tandy is playing well and in week 14 he put up 8 Solos,1 AST, 1 TFL, 3 PDs, 1 INT on 61/100% of the snaps.

DJ Swearinger- FS ARI: STREAMER; I’m putting up Swearinger because of his matchup with NO as they give up the most points to S and in week 14 6 Solos on 58/93% of the snaps.

Harold Jones-Quartey- SS CHI: Jones is only playing 53% of the snaps but he put up 6 Solos week 14 and 7 Solos, 2 AST in week 13 so if you need a fill in he has a great matchup with GB that give away the 4th most points to Ss.
