Julian Edelman (NE)--After recording only six catches from Week 8 to Week 11, Edelman has re-emerged as a top option in the Patriots passing game. Over his last two games, Edelman has now recorded 18 catches for 211 yards and two touchdowns, making him one of the best options in that timeframe in PPR leagues. The Patriots receiving core has had it's issues with drop balls and ineffective route running this season due to inexperience, so it is not surprising to see Edelman become a top target for Tom Brady, and I don't expect that to change anytime soon. If he is sitting on your waiver wire he is a must-add now that he is clearly the No. 2 option in the Patriots passing game behind only Rob Gronkowski.
Cordarrelle Patterson (MIN)--Despite his inconsistent production in the Vikings passing game, Patterson continues to find ways to get involved in the offense, either in the run game or as a special teams weapon. In Week 13, Patterson had only one catch for four yards on four targets, but was the only player on the team to rush for a touchdown, finishing with two carries for 27 yards. Outside of Greg Jennings, Patterson played the most snaps out of the team's receiving core, which was the third straight game in which that occurred. Obviously, those in standard leagues may not want to concentrate on adding him this week due to the lack of consistency, but deep league players may want to add him, considering he is the type of playmaker that could take your team to the next level with a great performance.
Andre Holmes (OAK)--After spending last season on the Cowboys practice squad, Holmes was then added by the Raiders and is now starting to make a name for himself in the league. Holmes was targeted 11 times in the Raiders Thanksgiving Day loss to his former team hauling in seven catches for 136 yards, falling just inches short of his first career touchdown. While I don't expect him to see double-digit targets on a weekly basis, depending on the matchup his activity in the Raiders offense will vary. Those in deep league formats will want to take a look at Holmes with a favorable schedule the rest of the way and an ailing Denarius Moore unsure when he will return to action.
Jacoby Jones (BAL)--Jones was a Mike Tomlin interference call away from having a big scoring day in Week 13, but instead finished with four catches for 53 yards in the Ravens win over the Steelers. If he had scored that touchdown, Jones would've finished with double-digit fantasy points in standard leagues for the second week in a row as he continues to be the No. 2 option in the Ravens passing game. However, the team expects to have Dennis Pitta back as early as Week 14, so his role in the offense may be limited moving forward. With that said, those in shallow leagues will want to avoid him, but if you are in a deep PPR league, Jones is worth an add now that we are in or about to enter the fantasy playoffs, depending on your league settings.
Ace Sanders (JAC)--The Jaguars sure have an "Ace" up their sleeve in regards to their passing game, after the Jaguars receiver put on a show for us in Week 13. Sanders finished with eight catches for 67 yards in the Jaguars win over the Browns, which was the second time in three games he reached those totals. With his second solid performance in three games, it is clear that Sanders is now the No. 2 option in the team's passing game behind only Cecil Shorts, and if he continues to get double-digit targets, he becomes an attractive fantasy option. Let's face it, the Jaguars aren't going to be blowing anyone out on the scoreboard, so they will be passing the ball a lot in each contest. So expect the maturation of Sanders to continue as we round out the rest of the 2013 season.
