Garbage Grab: Week 13

Garbage Grab: Week 13

Dorian “The Trashman” Colbert,

It’s week 13, and hopefully someone listened and started Brad Smith last week. If not, here’s your second chance as he’s in the starting lineup again. On Another note, Donald Brown is still only owned in 12% of leagues, and he’s a starting running back. Pick him and and play him already! That being said, it’s make it or break it time for a lot of folks, so here are some other potential Sunday afternoon studs that could change your fortunes for the better.

John Kuhn RB Packers: What has 6 tds in eleven games and is owned in only three percent of leagues? You guessed it. Kuhn is the goal  line back in Green Bay, and they happen to be in scoring position most of the time. Why waste your time scouring the wire for a guy who might get you 50 yds or so, when you can start a player who is almost guaranteed a td?

Ramses Barden WR Giants: Mario Manningham might not play again this season, and it has already been shown that three receivers can thrive in New York. Considering the Giants are playing Green Bay this week, Barden should get a handful of targets. What he does with them, is a mystery I’m afraid. He should be worth a gamble for a flex start though.

Jacob Tamme TE Colts: The woeful Colts are up against a soft Patriots pass defense this week, so this could bode well for the capable Tamme. This might also be Tamme’s best shot to do some real damage, as Dallas Clark will probably be back in week 14.

Marcel Reece RB/Chaz Schillens WR Raiders: Reece is a wideout in a linebackers’ body playing running back. Coming of a 93 yd effort last week, he has another chance to go big as Jacoby Ford and Denarius Moore have been ruled out for this week. Schillens had eight targets last week, and should see similar looks against the Dolphins.

Matt Moore QB Dolphins: Moore is quietly having a respectable season under center for Miami, tossing seven tds in the last four weeks. Oakland is fairly susceptible to the pass, and the Dolphins just happen to be playing them. I expect a big day for the Moore/Marshall connection.

Tennessee Defense vs Buffalo: Buffalo’s running game is in shambles right now, so they have nothing to really go at the Titan’s main weakness, which is their run defense. Their pass defense is respectable though, and should manage to create some turnovers.
