Week 12: Pickups of the Week
This one is simple: In two straight games with Ryan Fitzpatrick at quarterback, Delanie Walker rocked. Last week he rolled over the Colts with 10 receptions for 91 yards and a touchdown. In those two games, Walker's stat line (14-153-2) looks rather TE1-like. In this case perception is reality - assuming we all understand that his reality is that of a TE ranked overall outside the top 8-9 options. For more good news, Walker faces a Raiders defense that just let the aforementioned Garrett Graham go wild and gave up two touchdowns to the Eagles' tight ends in Week 9.MyFantasyLeague availability: 46%
This week's defensive streamer call heads to Cleveland where the Browns host AFC North rival Pittsburgh in Week 12. The Steelers have allowed 37 sacks, third worst in the NFL. The Browns have 31 sacks, eighth best. Pittsburgh enters with a gimpy Emmanuel Sanders and in a week Antonio Brown contends with corner supreme Joe Haden. Ben Roethlisberger didn't throw an interception against the Lions, but tossed five in the previous three games. Expect some errant throws against a unit that should apply pressure.
