This week is likely the last week of regular season play for
most fantasy football leagues. The one problem most fantasy players
face come playoff time is that NFL teams that are playoff bound
usually lighten the workload for their star players, so be careful
if you have players on those teams and let the forum help you
Marcus Robinson, WR BAL: Ever since Anthony Wright became the
starting quarterback for the Ravens a few weeks ago, Robinson has
been his main target. In three weeks he has accounted for four
Shaun Alexander, RB SEA: Seattle takes on the Minnesota Vikings
this weekend, and that is a good thing for Alexander because in the
last seven games the Vikings have allowed a 100-yard rusher in five
of those games. With the Seahawks trailing the St. Louis Rams by
one game in West Division standings, Alexander will be a workhorse
Stephan Davis, RB CAR: Davis has the luxury of facing the
hapless Atlanta Falcons defense – the second worst rush defense in
the league. The Falcons give up an average of 149 yards of rushing
per game and have given up 19 rushing touchdowns this season.
Joey Harrington, QB DET: The Lions are coming off of a big
Thanksgiving Day victory over the Packers and this week take on the
San Diego Chargers. The Chargers pass defense has allowed a
league-leading 28 touchdowns through the air, and Harrington is
prime for a breakout game this weekend.
Kevan Barlow, RB SF: Barlow’s backfield mate, Garrison Hearst,
underwent arthroscopic knee surgery this week and will likely miss
this week’s game against the Arizona Cardinals. With Hearst sitting
on the bench, Barlow will see most of the carries.
Drew Bledsoe, QB BUF: With a wave of head injuries, Bledsoe has
told team trainers that he is consistently dizzy and will most
likely not see the field this weekend.
Garrison Hearst, RB SF: See Kevan Barlow.
Any running back who plays for the Dallas Cowboys: No Dallas
running back has rushed for more than 41 yards in any of the last
three games. Additionally, the Cowboys face a stout Eagles’
defense. The backs from Dallas have no fantasy value this
Tampa Bay defense: After last weekend’s loss to Jacksonville,
the Bucs defense has officially become a total disappointment. It
faces the Saints this weekend, a team the Bucs have lost to three
times in a row.
