Week 12: Player Upgrades
It seemed like Hakeem Nicks was poised to break out and start finding the end zone a few weeks ago, but instead it's been Rueben Randle getting all the red zone looks. The forgotten man in the Giants receiving corps has six touchdowns in the last six weeks. However, Cruz has been the WR getting the most attention from Eli Manning. Cruz has been targeted 31 times over the past three games and has totaled 18 receptions for 233 yards. He's bound to find the end zone soon as the Giants have games remaining against the likes of the Cowboys, Redskins (twice) and Chargers.
If we're talking Week 12, there are some streamer options this week. Garrett Graham from Houston is coming off a big game and plays Jacksonville, so consider him a nice plug and play solution at TE. However, Walker plays the Raiders this week and has the second softest schedule remaining for all tight ends. So he's the pick here, particularly after receiving 18 targets over the past two games. In fact, Walker cashed in on those targets, catching 14 passes – including all 10 thrown his way in Week 11 – for 153 yards and two touchdowns. There might not be a hotter tight end at the moment, and with his remaining schedule, Walker's scorching pace is likely to continue.
