3 People You Need To Pick Up Right Now: Fantasy Football

New, comments

Pick Up Now

1. Jason Avant - Jason saw a good amount of targets (14) Sunday against the New England Patriots and had a great game with 110 receiving yards and one touchdown. Avant was Philadelphia's top receiver, but it took 48 Vince Young pass attempts for him to get those numbers. Avant could be worth a look in some deep leagues due to the uncertainty at receiver in Philadelphia. Jeremy Maclin (shoulder/hamstring) remains banged up and DeSean Jackson was benched late Sunday for performance reasons.

Consider The Following

1. Ben Obomanu - Surprising right? At various points this year, while Sidney Rice and Mike Williams were out with injuries he did some things, but hasn't done a whole lot on the season as a whole (28 receptions, 295 yards). He should see more targets now, though. Still has tough competition against Doug Baldwin, the number one WR on the Seahawks.

2. Brent Celek - Celek caught five passes for 75 yards (six targets) against New England on Sunday. Celek continues to play exceptional well and puts up solid point week after week. He has 309 yards and two touchdowns on 33 catches in his last six games.
