Fantasy Forum

Nov 122003
Authors: Steve Latuda

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.

Love em’

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.

Brad Johnson:

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!

Clinton Portis:

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.

Leave em’

Kevin Johnson:

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.

Ricky Williams:

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.
