O.K. I Just got back to town from a wonderful weekend in Big D. There is nothing like watching the Cowboys stomp a mud hole in somebody to really make the trip fun. After I get you guys up to date on the Fantasy World, I hope to write a brief post about my trip. A+
ARI vs CAR: ARI is on a three game winning streak so they are on a role; they also have one of the easiest schedules the rest of the way. So a must start from here on out. Wells is looking to take the starting RB position from Hightower but hasn’t got it yet. CAR on the other hand is a mess. Delhomme is about to lose his happy home and the running game is still not up to last season’s level. This week go ahead and start the passing game but stay away from the running game.
ATL vs NO: It’s a must start every weekend for the Saints but this is a below average day for the Falcons. I would stay away from the running game this weekend but the passing game is an option if you don’t have anything better.
BAL vs DEN: This is one tough matchup this week. I see it as a very stingy defensive battle that will produce low scores and very few stats. So unless it’s your only option try to avoid all players.
BUF vs HOU: Buffalo is on a winning streak but still not worth starting, Evans has moved ahead of Owens for the top receiver spot in Buffalo because he has a better report with Fitzpatrick. Even though HOU has been on fire in the air the last few games I expect a more aggressive dose from their running attack this week, because the weather will demand it.
CHI vs CLE: Forte is finally in for a big weekend and it’s about time! He has been a huge flop so far this season. Cleveland is the worst team in the league right now and has no fantasy value what so ever.
DAL vs SEA: After last weekend’s game, there is now way we can do anything but whip Seattle this week. This is a must start game for all Cowboys players. With the way the Dallas Defense has been playing it is a very bad matchup for the Seattle offense. Try to avoid all players this week.
DET vs STL: This is a good matchup for all players involved including Stafford. He could make a nice fill in QB if you’re in a spot this weekend. K. Smith should put up solid #’s this week. Even though St. Louis has the worst rated offense of “ALL” teams they still should rack up a few points this weekend especially S. Jackson who is a must start this weekend.
GB vs MIN: This has to be the biggest game of the year. What better can we ask for then Brett going home to play against his old team? This should be a high scoring game on both sides so feel free to start all players involved.
IND vs S.F.: INDY is a little banged up right now so it’s tough to say who will be the man this week, really check your injury report before you start any players involved. My gut says Brown won’t play so Addai will have a big day. But that’s just my gut talking. A. Smith is now the starter in SF and Crabtree looks like he is the real deal, sound good? Not this week it doesn’t with the way IND pas defense is playing you might want to look for some other options this weekend.
JAC vs TEN: If you’re lucky enough to have Garrard as your back-up QB this is the week to use him. He should have a banner week against the week pass defense of TEN. Also Sims-Walker is a must start this week as well. I have been hearing rumors all week that V. Young is going to be the starter this week? If this is true he would make a great pickup if you need a QB for the week. Stay away from the Tenn running game it is a below average matchup.
KC: Bye Week
MIA vs NYJ: This is a below matchup for both teams. The defenses are just to strong on both sides to make any player worth starting unless you’re in a tight spot.
NE: Bye Week
NYG vs PHI: This looks like it will be an easy win for the Giants, but hold on. The Eagles have always found a way to slow down the Giants. I have a bad feeling for this game and with the injuries on the Eagles I would say it is a below average match up on both teams.
OAK vs SD: OK lets look at the ”RAIDERS” well they are an awful team, that can’t even get off the deck to try and win a game. So don’t waste your time starting anybody. This looks like an above average game for the Chargers so start all players.
PIT: Bye Week
TB: Bye Week
WAS: Bye Week
