Week 13: Start 'Em
Many fans thought that when Stokley was signed by the Broncos in the off season that it was a token for Peyton Manning, but that he wouldn't last. Well they were wrong, 2/3 of the season have passed and Stokley is still catching passes from Manning. If he keeps up this pace he will have his best season since 2004, which (to no surprise) was his only other full season playing with Manning. Despite the fact that Stokley is 3rd on the receiving depth chart, he has still managed to catch 36 passes for 449 yards and 5 touchdowns. This week the Broncos face what is easily the worst pass defense in the NFL in the Tampa Bay Bucs, who are giving up a league worst 315.5 yards per game through the air. If you need help at WR or flex, give Stokley a look.
Bennett, or the "black unicorn" as he likes to call himself, has cooled off after his blazing start to the season, when he caught 15 passes for 185 yards and 3 touchdowns over this first three weeks. Since then he has been dealing with some nagging injuries and inconsistencies. This week, Bennett has such a juicy match up that it's time to get him back in your starting lineup, as he faces the Redskins who have been giving up 301 yards per game through the air. The last time Bennett faced the Skins he caught 5 passes for 79 yards. I would expect much of the same this week and look for Bennett to finally score his 4th touchdown of the season. Bennett makes for a very solid TE or flex start and if you're in a deep league he could even be looked at as a WR3.Injury Status: Injured Reserve
