For some leagues, this can be the beginning of the Playoffs; yet, this can be the time when playoff spots are being fought for. Luckily with this season, every team that has a chance to make the playoffs this year looks to be fighting for the spot. Packers players may become useless if they don’t pursue an undefeated season, and Lions players could be relevant the rest of the season. Whatever your case is, we are here to help you make it into the money in the coming weeks. Check back after the break for this weeks fantasy update.
Players I LoveCam Newton QB Carolina
This is the second week in a row in which Cam is my favorite QB. Tampa is falling apart, and I’m convinced they may be the worst team in the NFC South. Their defense is rattled, and teams are starting to figure them out. I expect Cam to have at least 1 rushing TD this week.
LeGarrette Blount RB Tampa Bay
We have all seen how well, or terrible, the Panthers’ run defense is this season. Blount has the capability of being the top RB this week, and he is a must start.
Brandon Marshall WR Miami
Hmm…the Dolphins…playing well…with Matt Moore. This blows my mind, but even with a loss to Dallas, the Dolphins are still red hot.
Fred Davis TE Washington
Who else will the QB staff of Washington throw to when Gafney is covered?
New England D/ST
Two words: Indianapolis Colts.
There you have it! Most of these players are available in some leagues (except for Cam Newton and Marshall) and if you are hurting they are also worth trading for.
Players I Hate
Carson Palmer QB Oakland
I’m assuming you watched the way the Dolphins’ D manhandled the Cowboys. Well, Carson Palmer and Oakland are going to get murdered (figuratively speaking of course).
Toby Gerhart RB Minnesota
Denver’s defense is winning the games lately, not Tim Tebow. Mix their strengths with the Vikings’ woes on offense and I don’t see the Vikings doing much of anything on Sunday.
Tony Gonzalez TE Atlanta
The Falcons and tony are going up against the Texans first ranked defense. Plus with TJ Yates or Jake Delhomme playing, I don’t think the Falcons have to worry about racking up the score.
Suh-less and Brees is on a roll!!!
So, I’m scheduling this to post Saturday, obviously. I’m not in town so I will be unable to answer any questions this week. But, if you are dying for advice go to ESPN.com and follow their rankings, and start the higher ranked player.
