Week 11: Bargain Hunter

Consider using these players in weekly salary cap leagues. This week's picks include Nick Foles, Colin Kaepernick, Jonathan Dwyer, Marcel Reece, and Danny Amendola.

Cecil Shorts received the second-most targets (14) of any wide receiver in the NFL last week and has eclipsed 100 yards receiving in two of the last three games, which makes him worthy of a look from owners in salary cap leagues. Jacksonville has not had an impact fantasy wide receiver (I don't count flash-in-the-pan Mike Sims-Walker) since Jimmy Smith retired at the end of the 2005 season.

Shorts does not have the most appetizing matchup (going up against the Houston Texans top-five pass defense this weekend), but he is a tremendous value at just $8.94 in Yahoo! Salary Cap leagues. I would have no problem picking up Shorts as a number three receiver this week in salary cap leagues, because the Jaguars should be trailing and will be forced to throw against the Texans. The potential for some major yardage in garbage time is there for Shorts this weekend.

Injury Status: Injured Reserve

This is more of a gut call than any of the other players listed this week, but I fully expect Aaron Hernandez to return and be a productive fantasy option against the Indianapolis Colts this weekend. Hernandez has now had three weeks to recover, missing the last two games with a bye week sandwiched in-between and should be healthy and ready to go. Hernandez has played in just three full games this season, but has scored in two of them. If Hernandez plays, he would represent a nice bargain for salary cap owners, valued at just $8.52 in Yahoo! Salary Cap leagues.
