The Washington Post Sunday

Fantasy scout

- — John Romero

Chiefs RB Spencer Ware turned in a serviceabl­e effort in place of Kareem Hunt in Week 13, tallying 52 yards from scrimmage and a touchdown. Kansas City hosts Baltimore on Sunday, and the Ravens bring a defense that has allowed the fewest fantasy points to opposing running backs. Proceed with caution . . . . Eagles WR Alshon Jeffery has been a non-factor in fantasy for several weeks, and the arrival of Golden Tate hasn’t helped. Philadelph­ia faces NFC East rival Dallas, and the Cowboys boast a secondary that has been stingy against opposing wide receivers. Owners haven’t been able to count on Jeffery, and this week should be no different. Find an alternativ­e . . . . Broncos WR Courtland Sutton figures to see an uptick in targets after the season-ending injury to Emmanuel Sanders. Sutton had a nice outing for Denver in Week 13 at Cincinnati, hauling in four receptions for 85 yards and a touchdown. Sutton owners have reason for optimism these next few weeks as the Broncos face the 49ers, Browns and Raiders . . . . Lions RB LeGarrette Blount has gotten more carries in the past two weeks with the injury to Kerryon Johnson. Blount, who is available in nearly 60 percent of ESPN leagues, has a chance to feast against Arizona’s leaky run defense.
