Over the course of a 16-game NFL season, seeing a handful of teams open up a quarterback carousel of sorts is to be expected. That's why Ryan Fitzpatrick is starting for the Titans. His favorite target is not the same as teammate Jake Locker's. That's why tight end Delanie Walker has risen to fantasy prominence.
Walker is one of the hottest pickups on the waiver wire of late because of a high volume of targets. He's been targeted a team-high 18 times in the last two weeks and has a pair of touchdowns to show for it. He's scored five times on the season and three of those touchdowns have come in the last four games. No doubt Walker will be looked to early and often against the Raiders.
The Raiders coaching staff has officially named rookie Matt McGloin as the team's starting quarterback for Week 12. That's bad news for Terrelle Pryor and his fantasy owners, as Pryor will be on the sidelines even though he returned to practice and is recovering well from a knee injury. McGloin threw three touchdown passes and didn't turn the ball over last week, earning himself another start.
If McGloin is to have success, running back Rashad Jennings will have to help move the ball on the ground. Jennings will start again with teammate Darren McFadden still out. He whipped off a monster 80-yard score last week and finished with 150 yards against the New York Giants. Fantasy owners can only hope Jennings will keep a good thing going in Week 12.
