Big points are available this week, if you have the right guys.
If you don’t, then let the forum help you find the guys that will
put you over the top, and bench the guys that will hurt you.
Duce Staley: If not for Duce, the Eagles would have lost the
game against the Packers last Monday night. With the offense
struggling, again, Eagles’ head coach Andy Reid fed Staley the
ball, and Staley produced. He totaled 98 yards, and has just about
re-earned his job as the team’s featured back.
Aaron Brooks, Deuce McAllister and Joe Horn: Each player had
their best fantasy week against the dreadful Falcons defense in
Week 7. Brooks threw for 352 yards and three touchdowns, McAllister
ran for 116 yards and found the end zone twice, and Horn caught
eight balls for 133 yards and one touchdown. Those are impressive
numbers for three guys from the same team. Fantasy players can
expect the same this week.
Yes, the Bucs are playing terribly, but (believe it or not) it
is their defense that has this ship sinking. Johnson has been very
consistent, putting up numbers that would have easily won Tampa Bay
more games last year. He is tied with Payton Manning for the league
lead in touchdown passes with 18, and his 2,345 yards passing rank
him third in the league. Wow!
Portis has had a week to rest, faces a San Diego defense that he
torched for 129 yards on just 12 carries and has the services of
quarterback Jake Plummer back for this week. Portis should total
200 yards and at least two touchdowns this weekend.
Sorry Kevin Johnson owners, but Johnson has been cut by the
Browns. He is unemployed. Despite being the teams most consistent
receiver, 41 catches for 381 yards, he will not be catching any
passes this weekend from anyone.
Williams has disappointed lately and no cure is in sight. He has
no talent around him, plus he faces a staunch Ravens defense.
Plaxico Burress: Only had one catch for six yards against the
Cardinals. If you cannot perform against the Cardinals, then who
can you put up numbers against?
Pick em’ up
Anthony Wright, QB, Ravens: Wright has been named the starter,
and if he plays well, he should finish the season as the Ravens’
starter. With Lewis running well, the passing game will be open. He
started four games in Dallas in 2001 and looked good before getting
Antwaan Randle El, WR, Steelers: Should get more passes thrown
his way because of the stink bomb laid by Burress.
