Fantasy Player Projections

 
Miami Dolphins
Edward Jones Dome | Sunday, November 30 | 1:00 p.m. EST (CBS)
Pick: Dolphins 34, Rams 13
St. Louis Rams
Pos.PlayerProjection
QBChad Pennington
210 pass yards, 1 pass TD
Pennington got into a shootout with the Matt Cassel and the Patriots last week and more than held his own, setting season highs with 341 yards and three TDs while completing 24-of-41 passes. It was his best game of the year, but this week at St. Louis he will just be asked to manage things as the Dolphins run the ball at will. He would have been a great fantasy play last week, but not so much this week.
RBRonnie Brown
2 rec, 20 rec yards, 100 rush yards, 2 rush TD
One week after going over 100 yards, Brown was held to just 37 yards on 10 carries, his sixth game in the last seven with 60 or fewer rushing yards. He's been a poor fantasy play recently, but that should change this week as the Rams rank 30th in the NFL against the run and have given up a league-high 20 rushing TDs. Start Brown this week and expect big results.
RBRicky Williams
3 rec, 30 rec yards, 60 rush yards, 1 rush TD
Williams caught a 13-yard TD pass last week, his fourth TD in his last seven games. He finished with only 40 total yards on six carries and two receptions, but he should expand on those numbers this week as the Rams rank 30th vs. the run. You could do a lot worse than Ricky as your Flex or RB2 this week.
WRTed Ginn Jr.
4 rec, 60 yards
Ginn Jr. is still stuck on one TD reception this year, but he's become a bigger part of the offense recently. He had five catches for 88 yards in the loss to New England last week and now has four or more catches in five of the last six games. He will have a lesser role this week at St. Louis as the Dolphins will pound the ball on the ground, but expect at least four catches once again.
WRDavone Bess
4 rec, 60 yards, 1 TD
With Greg Camarillo out for the year, Bess makes for a great pickup going forward as he's probably available in most fantasy leagues. The rookie stepped up last week and set career highs with five catches for 87 yards. He's not afraid to go across the middle to make catches and should be solid down the stretch, so add him to your reserve roster and hope for the best.
TEDavid Martin
3 rec, 30 yards
Look for Martin to get more targets across the middle now that Camarillo is out for the year. Last week against New England, he had four catches for 60 yards. He's still not a worthy fantasy play, but his value down the stretch should rise slightly.
TEAnthony Fasano
1 rec, 10 yards
Fasano hasn't had a single catch during each of the last two games and if he wasn't a factor in last week's shootout he won't be a factor down the stretch. Cut bait on Fasano for now.
KDan Carpenter
4 PATs, 1 FG
Carpenter didn't have a FG attempt last week, the second time in the last three weeks and fourth time this year that it's happened, and isn't a worthy fantasy play in this offense.
Defense
3 sacks, 1 INT, 1 Fumble
The Dolphins have struggled to force turnovers this year -- only eight INTs and 12 fumbles -- but their 28 sacks have been impressive. The Dolphins have been stout against the run all year, but weak against the pass.
Pos.PlayerProjection
QBMarc Bulger
170 pass yards, 1 INT
Bulger suffered a concussion last week against Chicago after completing his only two passes and hasn't been cleared yet to play this week. He must pass neurological tests on Wednesday in order to play and if he isn't cleared Trent Green will start at QB. Either way, stay away from this situation in Week 13.
RBSteven Jackson
3 rec, 20 rec yards, 50 rush yards, 1 rush TD
Jackson is expected to play this week after missing four of the last five games with a quad injury. Jackson practiced on Monday and head coach Jim Haslett said he is "optimistic". Watch his situation closely this week before committing to him, but if he plays he will be given limited touches against a Dolphins' defense that ranks ninth against the run.
RBAntonio Pittman
3 rec, 15 rec yards, 15 rush yards
Pittman started in place of Steven Jackson again last week, but was held to just nine yards on eight carries against the Bears. He added 11 yards on three receptions, but even if he platoons with S-Jax this week please leave him on your bench. He's not elusive enough to play any role on your team.
WRTorry Holt
4 rec, 70 yards
Holt weathered a quarterback change last week to finish with four catches for 84 yards. He still has just one TD catch in his last nine games and he's no longer a recommended fantasy play with Bulger being hurt and possibly out for this week's game. It's been a brutal year for Holt owners and it won't get any better anytime soon.
WRDane Looker
4 rec, 40 yards
Looker is the best No. 2 option St. Louis has, but leave him on your bench going forward with all of the QB problems now. He had four catches for 46 yards last week against Chicago, as good as it's going to get for him.
WRKeenan Burton
2 rec, 10 yards
The Rams don't have a solid No. 3 wideout, so Burton will do for now. He had two catches for 15 yards against Chicago last week, the second straight week with two catches. Leave him on your waiver wire.
TEAnthony Becht
1 rec, 10 yards
Becht has had one catch in each of the last three games, but that won't get it done in fantasy football. Don't expect anything more this week against the Dolphins.
KJosh Brown
1 PAT, 2 FGs
Things are so bad in St. Louis these days that Brown can't even make a 40-yard field goal. He missed from 40 and hit from 43, giving him only three points last week. He has now scored 3 or fewer points in three of the Rams' last four games.
Defense
1 sack
The Rams' defense is so bad that it has only six interceptions in 11 games. The Dolphins will run the ball so much this week that it won't need to pass much.
