Fantasy Football Report: Week 12

In my other football league, I have been officially eliminated from the playoffs. I blame this on a few factors but most of all my draft. The biggest mistake I made was overvaluing wide receivers. Instead of grabbing a good QB or my second RB, I stretched for Braylon Edwards. Lesson learned.

Brady Quinn Out for Season

ESPN.com is reporting that Browns QB Brady Quinn is done for the season. Quinn broke his finger during his game against Buffalo and tried to play through the pain on Sunday. Derek Anderson is back as the starter.

Greg Camarillo Injures Knee, Out for Season

Miami Dolphins WR Greg Camarillo left Sunday’s game against New England after injuring his knee. Reports later confirmed that he will not be back for the rest of the season. Camarillo led the Dolphins in receptions (55) and receiving yds (613).

Donovan McNabb Benched

Eagles QB Donovan McNabb went 8-18 with 59 yds and 2 INT’s in the first half against the Ravens on Sunday. Andy Reid had enough and benched his Pro Bowl QB for backup Kevin Kolb. Kolb took the field in the second half. Kolb didn’t fare better with 73 yds and 2 INT. McNabb is starting Sunday against Arizona.

Week 12 Top Performers

Matt Cassel (QB), New England Patriots: Cassel lands here for the second week in a row with 415 yds and 3 TD. He also added a rushing TD for good measure.

  • Week 13 Outlook: Cassel faces an uphill battle in the form of the Steelers. Pittsburgh’s defense is among the best in the NFL with only 235 total yds and 14.5 points allowed each game.

Terrell Owens (WR), Dallas Cowboys: T.O. snapped out of his funk in a huge way with 213 yds and a TD. T.O. hadn’t topped 40 yds receiving since Week 6 before last Sunday’s contest.

  • Week 13 Outlook: Another big game could be in the books against Seattle. The Seahawks give up over 250 pass yds per game to opposing QB’s.

Michael Turner (RB), Atlanta Falcons: Holy Crap! Not only did Turner top 100 yds for the 5th time this season but, he scored four, count ‘em FOUR TD’s! He now leads the NFL with 13 rushing TD.

  • Week 13 Outlook: Turner faces a pretty soft Chargers defense responsible for allowing over 100 rush yds per game.

Week 12 Duds

Brian Westbrook (RB), Philadelphia Eagles: Westbrook continues to struggle with only 39 yds rushing and failing to score a TD for the 4th week in a row.

  • Week 13 Outlook: If he plays, Westbrook faces a tough Arizona rush defense that only allows 89.5 rush yds per game. 

T.J. Houshmandzadeh (WR), Cincinnati Bengals: Housh was the victim of a tough Steelers defense and only accumulated 20 yds with no TD.

  • Week 13 Outlook: Things will get tougher before they get easier for the Bengals offense. They face Baltimore Sunday andthe Ravens are shutting down the pass with only 182 pass yds allowed each week.

Jay Cutler (QB), Denver Broncos: Cutler just couldn’t cut it on Sunday (get it?). He threw for 204 yds and 1 INT.

  • Week 13 Outlook: The Broncos face the Jets this Sunday. The Jets can be beat in the air. They allow 239 pass ys per game. Plus, they have such a good run defense (78 rush yds allowed per contest) that Denver will have to throw all day.

Unexpected Stars

Derrick Ward (RB), New York Giants: WIth Brandon Jacobs out, Ward had 99 total yds and a rushing TD.

  • Week 13 Outlook: If Jacobs is out again then, Ward faces a very good Redskins rush defense that surrenders less than 90 rush yds per game. Then again, the Giants ran for over 200 yds against Baltimore so, no defense is safe against the New York backfield.

Harry Douglas (WR), Atlanta Falcons: Douglas had 92 receiving yds and returned a punt for a TD on Sunday.

  • Week 13 Outlook: As a #3 WR, he may have value against the Chargers. San Diego gives up over 360 total yds per game.

Isaac Bruce (WR), San Francisco 49ers: Bruce showed no signs of old age when he caught 8 passes for 125 yds and a TD.

  • Week 13 Outlook: The 49ers go up against the Buffalo Bills next. Buffalo is tough against opposing WR by only allowing 211 pass yds per game.

Sports of Boston Friends and Family League

  • I was the high scorer for the 2nd week in a row with 144.26 points. I moved into 4th place. Big thanks to Michael Turner (4 TD) and Randy Moss (3 TD).
  • SoB’s KC has fallen to 2nd place and SoB’s Dan takes over the top spot after a victory over SoB’s Jeff by a score of 135.12-123.42.
  • Remember: Thanksgiving is this Thursday. So, if you have any Cowboys, Lions, Seahawks, Titans, Cardinals, or Eagles, then be sure to play them if you want to.
  • Recent pickups include: Justin Gage, Ted Ginn Jr., Mason Crosby, Peyton Hillis, Neil Rackers, and Antonio Pittman.
