OK Guys we start the Thursday Night games now so make sure you get your lineups in by Wednesday Night or Thursday morning just in case…
THURSDAY NIGHT – NFL NETWORK –
CHI vs SF: Chi is a pass 1st and then pass some more offense now. Not only that, but their defense has fallen to average as well. So I would start all players involved in this game, there will be plenty of Fantasy points to go around.
Sunday & Monday Games
ARZ vs SEA: Wow feel free to start all ARZ players you have it will be a great matchup for the Cardinals. Seattle will get beat but should score a couple TD’s this time around so start them if you don’t have anything better.
ATL vs CAR: This is a head scratcher now… .Atlanta was a passing team but now Turner has been going off. Hmmmm.. If I had anybody from ATL involved in this game I would probably start them. Carolina is another story. I think the running game will do OK but the passing game is done, they aren’t worth starting until they prove they are worth it again.
BAL vs CLE: R. Rice will go off a must start this weekend. CLE has put Brady Quinn back in at QB so avoid all Cleveland players until further notice.
BUF vs TEN: Man you would think that anybody with Buffalo players would be licking their chops, but wait a minute. Times have changed. Feel free to start all Titians especially C. Johnson who should have a nice game this week and don’t waste your time with the Bills.
CIN vs PIT: This is going to be a war, Pit is better than the last time they met but I still see some stats to be had here. I see it as only an average game for both teams so be careful who you start.
DALLAS vs GB: At the beginning of the year this looked like a tough game for the COWBOYS, but not so much anymore. Don’t get me wrong playing GB in GB is always tough, but this shouldn’t be “as bad”. Dallas is on a roll right now and is looking better than they have in a long time, where as the Packers have fallen apart lately. I would say after the Favre show in GB they just haven’t been the same. Dallas has the hottest receiver in the NFL right now in Austin and Smash, Dash & Tash are almost well and starting to roll again. I say start all Dallas players you got and only Rodgers from GB.
DEN vs WAS: Well even though is looks like a blow out here I would be careful and only start player I had to especially from Washington. With C. Portis out, look for Betts to have a deceit day.
DET vs MIN: For some reason Det has been able to shut down the Minnesota offense in the last 3 games. I really don’t see that happening again feel free to start all Viking layer you got and also K. Smith from Detroit.
IND vs NE: Game of the week should be a great game to watch and to have fantasy players in. I’m looking for a high scoring game from both sides. A must start on all players.
JAC vs NYJ: Look for a running game from both teams this weekend. I say avoid the Passing game if you can and feel free to start both teams’ running backs (Jones – Drew, T. Jones)
KC vs OAK: I just can’t get excited about anybody on these teams myself, so I’m leaving it up to you…
MIA vs TB: This is an above average game for the Dolphins and another rough game for the Bucs and I just don’t see them winning back to back games. So start you Miami players and only start them if you have to on the TB players.
NO vs STL: This game should have you licking your lips if you have any NO players. It’s a must start for all Saint players and go ahead and start Steven Jackson from STL if you got him he may even get his 2nd TD of the year this week.
NYG: BYE They better start praying to the football gods because if they don’t wake up fast their season will be over.
PHI vs SD: It’s a bad week to be an Eagle. After getting whipped by Dallas and their RB hurting now, they have to face a hot Charger team. With all the problems the Eagles have right now I see it as an above average game for the Chargers so Start’Em if you Got’Em. Hold off on your Eagles this week unless you’re hurting for options.
Alright Boys and girls remember to do your homework and study because there will be a Quiz on Thursday Night, and a final on Sunday Monday. Good luck all!
