Last minute notes (Week 14)

AJ Feeley has been ruled out for MNF and with Sam Bradford ailing it could be a Tom Brandstater or Kellen Clemens getting the nod. Bottom line here is how much can you trust either QB and their impact on Brandon Lloyd and Steven Jackson? Better to look for other more dependable options given the importance of this week.

Nate Washington hasn’t practiced all week and though he is technically a game time decision things don’t look good. Look for CJ2Kto receive a healthy amount of touches against the Saints run defense which is ranked 16th.

Kevin Smith was unable to finish practice after being unable to cut and run his routes. Looks like another week of Maurice Morriswhich in turn means we will see a lot of passing against the horrific Vikings secondary. Megatron, Stafford, and both Tight Endsmake for some of the best plays of the weekend.

Jeremy Maclin is now a game time decision after re-injuring his hammy but did make the trip to Miami. Regardless, Maclin shouldn’t be expected to produce this week against a Miami defense which is surging.

Peter King from SI is already reporting Ben Roethlisberger is almost a given not to play next week. If you are able to win round one or had a bye this week, get ready to scavenge the wire if you don’t have a solid reserve.

PFT reports that Willis McGahee will be available on Sunday against the Bears. While this slightly upgrades Tim Tebow’s value, I am not sold on McGahee being able to produce much against the Bears 8th ranked defense. The threat of Mcgahee allows Tebow to take advantage of broken plays and the misdirection of the Bears defense since they won’t be able to key solely on Tebow. Still, I expect the offense as a whole to have issues. If Tebow is going to have a chance he will need to do it through the air so expect him to come out passing in an effort to put the Bears on their heels.

Scott Chandler has been ruled out for Sunday’s game against the Chargers so David Nelson gets the biggest boost because of his red zone targets. Nelson should be considered a solid WR #3/Flex option.

Adrian Peterson is a game time decision and by his own admission isn’t at full speed. Percy Harvin is a must start once again despite facing a solid Lions secondary. With Suh and Fairley out, Christian Ponder will have a much easier time allowing plays to develop and Harvin to use his speed getting open. Harvin is a solid WR #2 start this week.
