Week 17: Pickups of the Week

These players are worth considering adding to your roster if they're available. This week's picks include

WR

Jerrel Jernigan - Nothing can make up for the disaster that has been the Giants' passing attack this season, but Victor Cruz' replacement is doing his part. Over the last two weeks he's had 13 receptions for 147 yards and a score. Probably the safest NYG receiver enterng Week 17.

Nate Washington - Nice finish to the season with 13-209-1 over the last two weeks. Ride the wave, especially with Tennessee facing a reeling Houston squad.

Andre Holmes - From back bencher to the Raiders' top wide out over the last four weeks. Holmes went 5-71 against San Diego last week. Pryor at QB won't help the passing attack; facing a scenario where Oakland will likely throw lots in the second half against Denver helps.

Ted Ginn Jr. - Steve Smith's knee injury could thrust Ginn and Brandon LaFell into larger roles. Not a bad week from a fantasy perspective

Marvin Jones - Another active week, resulting in 85 yards on six receptions, which came after scores in each of the previous two games.

Others: Kris Durham, Andre Caldwell

TE

Marcedes Lewis - Four straight games with a touchdown for a team without many receiving options left.

Ryan Griffin - Another late season find, Griffin led the Texans with five receptions for 66 yards in Week 16

Zach Ertz - Not much for the rookie last week in a run-heavy game for the Eagles, but now faces a Dallas defense that ranks 29th against fantasy TEs.

Others: Jermaine Gresham, Joseph Fauria, Kellen Winslow
