If it isn’t fantasy Playoff time for you – your time is coming soon. Who can you depend on? Who is just too risky a play going forward?
Below is a list of players that are playing very well right now as well as the ones that may not exactly represent you well during the most important part of the Fantasy season.
Take a look and tell me what you think!
Aaron Rodgers – Green Bay Packers – Do I even have to tell you? Rodgers has 33 TD passes with just four INTs., he’s tossed at least two touchdowns in every game this season – 13 in his last four!
Matt Ryan – Atlanta Falcons – Ryan is averaging 301.0 passing yards and 2.3 passing touchdowns in his last four games. On Sunday he had three touchdown passes for the second time in four games. The Falcons finally appear to be rounding into form at least offensively – Ryan is Hot!
Drew Brees – New Orleans Saints – Brees was insane on Monday night passing for four touchdowns and rushing for another. In his last two games, Brees has six passing touchdowns, one rushing score and ZERO interceptions. Brees is as HOT as they come right now.
LeGarrette Blount – Tampa Bay Buccaneers – On Sunday Blount ran the ball 20 times for 103 yards, and he also gained a career-high 56 receiving yards on three catches. That makes two straight weeks that Blount has topped 100 yards. He`s got a brutal Carolina defense up next and he is going to get a ton of work – Hot.
Maurice Jones-Drew –Jacksonville Jaguars – MJD is the Jacksonville Jaguars! It looks like the Jags are going to ride Jones-Drew and he is delivering. On Sunday he had 166 combined yards with no touchdowns -he had scored in three straight before Sunday’s game. The Jags have a reeling San Diego team at home next week – MJD should remain Hot.
Marshawn Lynch – Seattle Seahawks – Marshawn Lynch was great again on Sunday at home against the Redskins. Lynch had 111 yards on the ground and he added a 20-yard touchdown reception. Lynch now has three 100+ yard games in his last four and he has scored a touchdown in seven straight.
Laurent Robinson – Dallas Cowboys – Robinson caught seven passes for 79 yards and two touchdowns in Thursday’s 20-19 win over the Dolphins. Robinson has been a touchdown machine lately, catching seven TDs in the last five games – 5 in his last 3 games. It may not last with Miles Austin scheduled to return to the lineup next week but there is no denying that right now Robinson is HOT.
Victor Cruz – NY Giants – Cruz leads the Giants in receptions (55), receiving yards (957) and receiving touchdowns (7) and has now racked up 285 yards and three scores over his last two contests. Cruz is nearly in the elite class of Fantasy WRs!
Philip Rivers – San Diego Chargers – Wow! At least Rivers didn’t throw an interception but 188 yards and one touchdown? It baffles me how Not Hot Rivers is. [ad-8469823]
Sam Bradford – St. Louis Rams – Bradford threw for just one touchdown… again. He hasn’t passed for multiple touchdowns this season. He had his best yardage numbers in his last 3 games Sunday – a whopping 203 yards! It’s ugly folks and Bradford is Not Hot.
Carson Palmer – Oakland Raiders – Things have really slowed down for Carson – he has one touchdown pass in his last two and he is missing his best two receiving options. It may be time to officially cease the trust in Mr. Palmer.
Steven Jackson – St. Louis Rams – Jackson followed up a brutal 42 yard effort in Week 11 with just 64 yards in Week 12. Jackson has not hit pay dirt in four games and now he has to face the San Francisco 49ers – Not Hot!
Shonn Greene – NY Jets – Greene has not scored since Week 5! Seriously. Greene had his best game in four weeks last Sunday – 78 yards versus one of the worst defences on the planet. Greene, with the touches he is getting HAS to be getting 100 yards. Until that time and until he scores a touchdown, Greene has to be considered Not Hot.
Ryan Torain – Washington Redskins – Torain didn’t get one touch in Week 12 against Seattle and suddenly finds himself third on the Washington RB depth chart behind Roy Helu and Evan Royster. Torain is definitely Not Hot.
Mike Wallace – Pittsburgh Steelers – Is it me or does Antonio Brown look like the #1 WR on the Steelers? Wallace has seen his targets reduced greatly and has 71 yards combined with no touchdowns in his last two games. Not Hot.
Jermichael Finley – Green Bay Packers – Finley has gone cold. In his last three games, he has averaged 2 catches for 45 yards and no scores. On the Packers that’s Not Hot!
