Place kicker

Jay Feely, Arizona Cardinals vs. Indianapolis Colts

Arizona and Indy match up well enough to give Feely some credence as a waiver wire play. The Cards have picked up their game in recent weeks, especially in the passing game, an area in which the Colts have struggled mightily to defend.

Shaun Suisham, Pittsburgh Steelers at Cleveland Browns

Suisham has been afforded six field goal attempts in the last two weeks and is averaging 3.33 point-after tries over his past three outings. The Steelers are moving the ball very well through the air, yet their running game has struggled. That bodes well for stalled drives and three-point tries. Plus, Cleveland knows how what to look for to slow this division rival.

Defensive team

New York Jets at Baltimore Ravens

New York's defense was almost as bad as their offense last week, and they have struggled to reach the quarterback. That should change in Week 12 against the penultimate pass-protecting offense in the last month. You could do worse than the Jets as a one-week matchup play.

Cleveland Browns vs. Pittsburgh Steelers

No team has given up more sacks in the last month than the Steelers. Surrendering pressure can lead to mistakes, and Cleveland could be a decent outing as a one-week play if you are missing Cincinnati or Seattle's defense because of their bye weeks.
