Ryan Fitzpatrick, QB Buf – Fitzpatrick threw for 337 yards and two touchdowns last week against the 27th ranked Patriots’ secondary. This week the Bills face the 26th ranked Dolphins’ pass defense and Fitzpatrick could be in line for a similar performance. The Titans’ Jake Locker connected for two touchdowns in week 10 as Tennessee routed Miami 37-3.
Sam Bradford, QB Stl – Danny Amendola returned from injury last week and hauled in 11 catches for 102 yards, and Bradford completed 26 of 39 attempts for 275 yards and two touchdowns against a tough 49ers defense. The Rams are up against the Jets this week and the Cardinals after that, so the matchups aren’t exactly ideal, but looking forward at weeks 14 through 16 Bradford’s fantasy value should increase against the Bills, Vikings, and Buccaneers.
Chris Ivory, RB Saints – Likely the most added player this week after his beast mode like performance Sunday against the Falcons, Ivory is averaging 7.1 yards per carry in the last two games and Saints’ interim coach Joe Vitt said Monday he should see additional carries. He has a favorable matchup this week against the Raiders’ 20th ranked run defense; Oakland has allowed an average of 100.3 rushing yards per game and over 21 fantasy points per week to opposing running backs.
Cecil Shorts, WR Jac – One of the few bright spots on a rather disappointing fantasy roster, Shorts finished with his second 100 yard performance in as many weeks. He is available in over 70% of most leagues and while the matchup this week against the Texans isn’t a great one, he should continue to see targets regardless of who is behind center.
Brandon Stokley, WR Den – Available in over 75% of most formats, Stokley hauled in four of five targets on the day and a touchdown, his 4th of the year. His value remains limited behind DeMaryius Thomas and Eric Decker, but he and Peyton Manning have chemistry and Denver’s schedule to finish the season is a fantasy owners dream with remaining games against the Chargers, Browns, Raiders, and twice against the Chiefs.
Greg Olsen, TE Car – Olsen has struggled this season to remain consistent, but he turned in 9 catches for 102 yards and two touchdowns last week. Olsen was targeted ten times, and with Panthers running game still M.I.A. he should continue to see looks. He has a favorable matchup this week against Tampa Bay; the Bucs have allowed the 9th most fantasy points to opposing tight ends.
