Avant had arguably his best day as a professional stat-wise last weekend, hauling in seven catches for 133 yards. Avant also had 12 targets, which was second to Jeremy Maclin’s 13. Look for more of the same production this weekend.
Joe Flacco QB Ravens, last week: 3 TD’s, 182 passing yards
Flacco got off to a hot start throwing three touchdowns in the first half vs. Washington’s last-ranked pass defense. However, Flacco wasn’t perfect in the second half, turning the ball over twice with a fumble and an interception. He didn’t have break the 300-yard marker but the three touchdowns make up for anything and everything.
DeMarco Murray RB Cowboys, last week: 75 total yards, TD
Murray carried the ball 21 times Sunday vs. Cincinnati, recording 53 yards on the ground and 22 more in the receiving game. He’s definitely not back to 100 percent, but who is at this point in the season? A tough rushing touchdown showed enough to give him another start next week as well.
Bills Defense, last week: 15 points allowed, interception, sack
Anytime a defense doesn’t hurt you in fantasy, it’s a positive. Buffalo forced one turnover and had one sack all game. If there was any week in which this defense would show up, it would of been this one. But with only 15 points against, you can’t complain too much.
Tony Moeaki TE Chiefs, last week: 10 yards
Moeaki did not have the type of game which was anticipated after a good start last week (54 yards, TD). There’s not too much else to say when you put up seven points against the Cleveland Browns.
Texans defense, last week: 42 points allowed, sack
Houston had a rough game last night, to put it bluntly. Brady had four touchdowns and 296 passing, it could have been more as he got pulled for Ryan Mallet in the fourth quarter. No surprise here, as the Patriots show the rest of the league who the team to beat in the AFC still is and has been for the past decade.
Emmanuel Sanders WR Steelers, last week: 36 yards receiving
Sanders’ numbers were below average with just two catches for 36 yards. This was Sanders’ worst game since Week 10. With Big Ben back in the lineup, it looks to be the Mike Wallace show is in full effect.
Ryan Mathews RB Chargers, last week: 65 yards rushing
Mathews had 65 yards on the ground off of 25 carries vs. Pittsburgh’s vaunted defense. Anytime you bench a player with the talent Mathews has and doesn’t score a touchdown, you can mark it down as a win, especially during playoff time.
Ryan Fitzpatrick: 247 passing yards, td, interception
Fitzpatrick was pretty efficient vs. a very talented St. Louis secondary.He did turn the ball over in a crucial situation, but Fitzpatrick didn’t lose a matchup for your team. He didn’t help it out either.
David Wilson RB Giants, last week: 3 total touchdowns, 100 yards rushing
Wilson had 100 yards rushing for the first time in his young and promising career. On only 13 attempts, Wilson showed why he was picked in the first round in last year’s draft. He did it in the kicking game as well, taking one back to the house to tie the game and was just one tackle away from having multiple kickoff returns for touchdowns.
Rod Streater WR Raiders, last week: 100 yards receiving
Streater has 196 yards receiving in the past two games and a score. He will be facing the Kansas Chiefs in Week 15, who just gave up 30 points to the Cleveland Browns. Streater’s future in the Oakland Raiders offense with Carson Palmer at quarterback seems to be the connection that is best succeeding there right now.
DeAngelo Williams RB Panthers, last week: 112 total yards, TD
Williams finally had the game in which he made a fantasy impact. But unless you were more than desperate at the running back position, you likely didn’t have the chance to start him. With plenty of frustrated owners out there he is now back on the free agent market. Catching two passes for 56 yards and a touchdown — to go along with season high 17 carries and 56 yards rushing — Williams looks to be resurrected in the Carolina offense.
