Week Two Reaches

Many of us will have to find replacements for the players from the Baltimore-Houston game so you’ll have to find some other alternatives.
 
Here’s a short list of one-week reaches that could be decent replacements.
 
 
Quarterback

Jake Delhomme vs. Chicago – Hey, he did well without Steve Smith last week. I’m starting him in a league since Matt Schaub is off this week. 

Kerry Collins vs. Cincinnati – You can count on them going deep a few times so Collins should throw for at least a score and over 200 yards.

Running Back

Derrick Ward vs. St. Louis – The Ram defense is garbage and Ward should see plenty of time in garbage time so he could wind up being a solid flex/#3 RB this week. 

Brandon Jackson vs. Detroit – Assuming he gets cleared to play, Jackson could see a lot of PT in the fourth quarter when the game could be out of reach or Ryan Grant could be given a rest to make sure he doesn’t have a setback with his injured hamstring.

Tim Hightower vs. Miami – He already is in a two-man rotation and he gets goal-line carries. He’s not a bad flex reach this week since the game could be out of [...]

  • 8/17 USA Today mock draft August 19, 2015
    I did an expert mock draft for USA Today and their special fantasy preview publication that will hit newsstands next week. I admittedly didn’t focus on the just the draft (I was working on several things at the time) and I simply queued up a bunch of players I liked. It wasn’t efficient at all, and I only like the squad (not love), but for what it’s worth th […]

  • 12-team PPR IDP Mock Draft results June 4, 2015
    I have been buried since the NFL draft doing our post-draft work, 2015 projections, and more, so I didn’t get a chance to post a draft I participated in for most of May (slow draft). It’s for Athlon Sports’ fantasy magazine, so I can’t publish the entire draft. But here’s my team. This league stars 1 QB, 2 RBs, 3 WRs, 1 Flex, 1 TE, 1 PK, 1 DT, 1 DL, 1 LB, 1 […]

  • First draft of the 2015 season April 14, 2015
    Although it is disgustingly early for a 2015 fantasy football draft for most, we are closing in on the time of the year when a draft is at least viable. Free agency is basically over, so all we have to wait for now is the draft. I’ve also been intrigued with what our friends at myfantasyleague.com have been doing with their MFL10s. It’s a great idea for the […]
