Fantasy Football: Wilson heating up at the right time
With six teams on bye and many regular fantasy starters unavailable, here are some players worth starting and sitting this week:
Larry Fitzgerald (WR, Cardinals)
While he is in the middle of another disappointing year, he can still be relied upon against the struggling Falcons.
Russell Wilson (QB, Seahawks)
He seems to look more and more unstoppable every week, and may be primed for another explosive end-of-the-season run.
Fred Jackson (RB, Bills)
Backfield mate C.J. Spiller doesn’t look healthy, and Jackson should continue to produce like an elite-level RB as long as he has the opportunity.
Matt Ryan (QB, Falcons)
Running low on targets outside of Harry Douglas and Tony Gonzalez, whom the Cardinals have the defensive talent to take away.
Josh Gordon (WR, Browns)
Up against the stout Kansas City defense with a new QB throwing him the ball in Jason Campbell.
Bilal Powell (RB, Jets)
Chris Ivory seems to be taking away most of his carries, and even if he were to get the ball you would want to avoid the Bengals defense.
