Pickups of the WeekRonnie Hillman, RB, Broncos (0.9 percent owned in ESPN Standard 10-Man Leagues)Week 11 stats: 12 carries, 43 yards, 2 rec, 16 yardsWith Willis McGahee out 6-8 weeks with an MCL tear, the Broncos second round pick will get a chance to prove his draft status. His next 5 opponents (@KC, TB, @Oak, @Balt, Cle) currently rank 21st or worse against opposing RBs. Lance Ball (9 touches, 56 yards, 0.4 percent) could be serviceable as well.Chad Henne, QB, Jaguars (0.9 percent)Week 11 stats: 16-33, 354 yards, 4 TDs (vs. Houston)Owners who are QB-hopping on a weekly basis should know that Henne's next opponent is Tennessee (26th vs QBs). It's amazing that the Jaguars waited this long to make the switch to Henne until you remember that starting Chad Henne at QB is like having an inflatable plastic pool in your backyard rather than a real one. Regardless, his presence significantly increases the value of Justin Blackmon (7 rec, 236 yards, 13 Targets, 44.6 percent) and Marcedes Lewis (3 rec, 40 yards, 2 TDs, 4 Targets, 5.7 percent) as well.Jalen Parmele, RB, Jaguars (0.8 percent)Week 11 stats: 24 carries, 82 yards, 3 rec, 3 yardsAs bad as the Titans are against the pass (26th vs QBs), they are even worse against the run (29th vs. RBs). Parmele will receive a full dosage of carries, making him a low No. 2 RB for this week.Bryce Brown, RB, Eagles (0.8 percent)Week 11 stats: 5 carries, 35 yardsAssuming LeSean McCoy (concussion) is out, Brown should be given the starting nod and will most likely struggle to rack up yardage. Whether he can muster up the yardage with Foles at QB is another question.Play defenses against Arizona, Pittsburgh, KC, Philadelphia, and OaklandTeamweek 12week 13week 14ArizonaSTLNYJSEAPittsburghCLEBALTSDKCDENCARCLEPhiladelphiaCARDALTBOaklandCINCLEDENAny defense playing any of these teams should put up a healthy amount of points. For what it's worth Cleveland D/ST (6.4 percent) has performed much better over the last few weeks and should have a healthy Joe Haden next week. In fact there next three match-ups are against some of the worst offensive teams.For Week 12 only:Carolina (5.4 percent) has great matchups over the next two weeks.St. Louis (22.3 percent) should fare very well against Arizona's 3rd string QB in Ryan Lindley.Cincinnati (50.8 percent) faces a McFadden-less offense. If the Saints, who were ranked 32nd before last week's game against Oakland can put up 14 standard league points, then Cincinnati should be fine to play. Gronk Replacements1. Brandon Myers (14.5 percent)Week 11 stats: 6 rec, 55 yards, 1 TD, 10 Targets17,5,11- Myers standard fantasy points the last three weeks. Cincinnati ranks 27th against tight ends.2. Jermaine Gresham (73.7 percent)Week 11 stats: 6 rec, 69 yards, 8 TargetsThe No.11 ranked standard-league TE is even a better option in PPR leagues.3. Tony Moeaki (0.8 percent)Week 11 stats: 4 rec, 73 yards, 6 Targets68 and 73 yards over the last two weeks and opposing TE's are averaging a league high 11.7 fantasy points against the Broncos.4. Kyle Rudolph (55.4 percent)Week 10 stats: 7 rec, 64 yards, 1 TD, 9 TargetsSure, Rudolph is a little inconsistent, but he still receives a high amount of targets and this is good enough to make him a low-end No.1 TE.5. Garrett GrahamWeek 11 stats: 8 rec, 82 yards, 2 TDs, 9 TargetsHe could be a viable replacement as Schaub continues to look his way with Owen Daniels struggling to recover from his hip issues.Other Deeper League GuysRiley Cooper, WR, Eagles (0.1 percent) Week 11 stats: 5 rec, 61 yards, 8 TargetsShould be a favorite for Nick Foles.T.Y. Hilton, WR, Colts (3.3 percent)Week 11 stats: 6 rec, 100 yards, 2 TDs, 9 TargetsHe's a rookie so don't expect much consistency from him. For example before his 6 rec, 102 yard, 2 TDs stat line against the Pats, he finished with 2 catches for 30 yards the week before.Colin Kaepernick, QB, 49ers (1.6 percent)Week 10 stats:    11-17, 117 yards, 8 carries, 66 yards, 1 TDWeek 11 stats: 16-23, 243 yards, 2 TDs, 4 carries, 12 yardsMore Alex Smith controversy coming up on Sportscenter. I'm so excited. As of right now, the 49ers will play the "hot hand", whatever that means. How Are They Still Available?Marcel Reece, RB, Raiders (32.8 percent)Week 10 stats: 13 carries, 48 yards,7 rec, 56 yardsWeek 11 stats: 19 carries, 103 yards, 4 rec, 90 yardsUntil McFadden comes back, Reece will be a low-end No. 2 RB.Danario Alexander, WR, Chargers (4.5 percent)Week 10 stats:    5 rec, 134 yards, 1 TD, 7 TargetsWeek 11 stats: 7 rec, 96 yards, 2 TDs, 11 TargetsPerhaps the often-disappointing Alexander can be relied upon provided he has a good QB throwing to him like Philip Rivers.Cecil Shorts, WR, Jaguars (27.5 percent)Week 7 stats:      4 rec, 79 yards, 1 TD, 10 TargetsWeek 8 stats:      8 rec, 116 yards, 12 TargetsWeek 10 stats:    6 rec, 106 yards, 1 TD, 13 TargetsWeek 11 stats: 3 rec, 81 yards, 1 TD, 6 TargetsDepending on your league (of course) I wouldn't you mind dropping any of these guys: Michael Vick, Cam Newton, LaRod Stephens-Howling, Rashad Jennings, Pierre Thomas, Rob Gronkowski, basically any guy that you wouldn't consider starting this year.
