Fantasy football start/sit, Week 12: Jordan Cameron retains upside

Kevin Jairaj-USA TODAY Sports

Jordan Cameron has disappeared a little lately, but his value hasn't completed evaporated. Should fantasy owners give him a chance on Sunday?

Cleveland Browns tight end Jordan Cameron came out like gangbusters to start his 2013 campaign. He had five TDs in his first four  games with three games of 90-plus yards and an average of 7.5 receptions per game.

He's slowed down quite a bit and only has one score since that blistering start. He hit rock bottom two weeks ago with just one catch for five yards against the Baltimore Ravens in Week 9. After the bye, Week 11 was a little better with six receptions for 29 yards. Still, that's a far cry from his start, but it's a nice sign of good things to come.

He gets the Pittsburgh Steelers this week. It's a sub-par matchup with the Steelers ranking as the 11th-toughest to score upon for tight ends. Although, they haven't really faced many big-name tight ends over the course of the year.

Cameron has fallen off a lot and this is nothing new for tight ends. They are the most inconsistent position in fantasy football, but Cameron might be in for a nice game. The Steelers are going to blitz a ton, so quarterback Jason Campbell might be look to him as a hot read. He's a low-end TE1 with major upside.
