Wide receiver

Nate Washington, Tennessee Titans vs. Indianapolis Colts

Ryan Fitzpatrick takes over as the starting passer for Tennessee and offers some stability for the offense's weaponry. It may not always be pretty, but he isn't afraid to let'r rip downfield. Washington caught one touchdown pass this year from Fitzpatrick on a 77-yard strike way back in Week 4. While it seems like Fitz and Kendall Hunter have more chemistry, Washington is likely to draw less defensive attention. It never hurts facing the worst pass D in the league, too.

Brandon LaFell, Carolina Panthers vs. New England Patriots

The surprising Panthers are confident and dangerous, even if their offense sputtered in a 10-9 Week 10 win. The Patriots' defense is not on par with San Francisco's, and this one is in Carolina. LaFell should benefit from the added attention that New England is likely to pay to Steve Smith. Look for respectable PPR figures from LaFell as the Pats try to keep the Cats in front of them.

Rishard Matthews, Miami Dolphins vs. San Diego Chargers

Seemingly coming out of nowhere, Matthews exploded on Monday Night Football for an 11-120-2 line that wasn't completely unforeseen. We told you several weeks ago to add him in deep leagues because of the target volume Brandon Gibson (knee) was seeing before he was lost for the year. Matthews just took a few more games to acclimate himself. Also on the plus side, San Diego stinks at covering most anyone. Score!

Tight end

Brandon Pettigrew, Detroit Lions at Pittsburgh Steelers

This recommendation has a lot to do with whether Nate Burleson (arm) returns, but Pettigrew should still be a playable option even if the veteran wideout indeed comes back. Pittsburgh was among the best defenders of tight ends in the league earlier in the year, but it has all gone down the tubes in recent weeks. Pettigrew has PPR appeal in deeper leagues or as a waiver wire replacement for, say, Jason Witten.

Rob Housler, Arizona Cardinals at Jacksonville Jaguars

Another Witten cover choice, Housler, who is coming off his best game of the season (57 yards and a score), and wide receiver Michael Floyd (shoulder) is banged up. Arizona's running game should be pretty good in this one, which will help keep Jacksonville honest against the pass.
