Wes Welker is Hot

Wes Welker and Brady have been on fire as of late.  This week they face the Jets, who currently rank 12th against the pass.

Analysis: Wes Welker is coming off his best week of the season, so continue to start him no matter the opponent.  In their last meeting Welker managed to grab a TD with 6 receptions for 38 yards.  Brady and the Patriots are a much different team now compared to when these two teams met back in September.  Welker has yet to reach the 100 yard mark this season and it certainly won’t happen against the Jets.   Consider him a low #1 or high #2 option for your lineups.

High/Low: Expect Welker to range anywhere from 6 to 14 points and is a must start in PPR leagues.

Mike Goodson Will Play, Safe to Start as #2

Mike Goodson has missed practice this week due to the birth of his newborn baby, but will play in Week 13 against the Seahawks.

Analysis: The last thing Goodson owners needed was another variable in the mix to decide if he should be in your lineups or not.  Missing practice could mean that Stewart gets more touches, though its hard to imagine that he will disappear.  Goodson is a big part of the offense now with a total of 22 touches last week, 8 receptions and 14 rush attempts.   He will split carries, but he has the potential to do more damage as a receiving back.  He should be a safe #2 option in most line-ups.

High/Low:  Expect Goodson to have 5 to 15 points in standard scoring leagues, but will be a better play in PPR leagues.

Michael Vick Carrying Fantasy Teams

Michael Vick threw for 302 yards with 48 yards rushing and 3 touchdowns. He could have easily had 4 touchdowns had it not been for two drops in the end zone.

Analysis: Vick is carrying many fantasy teams into the playoffs.  He proved once again that he is a must start, especially when facing a terrible defense like the Texans.  Fantasy owners must be holding their breath as Vick took quite a few tough hits.  Continue to start him against the Cowboys, but after that he may come back down to earth when he plays the Giants.

High/Low: Expect Vick to rack up 25 to 35 fantasy points against the Cowboys.
