Week Three Reaches

Last week’s reaches did pretty well so I’ll try it again:


J.T. O’Sullivan vs. Detroit – The game is at home against one of the worst defenses in the NFL. I have to think JTO will throw for two TDs in this game and for well over 200 yards.

Jon Kitna at San Francisco – It could get ugly at times for him with some INTs, but he’s a good bet to throw at least two TDs and for well over 200 yards against a suspect 49er secondary.

Running Back

Julius Jones vs. St. Louis – He may have been a dog last year but it’s all about matchups and Jones has a great one again this week.

Sammy Morris vs. Miami – Even if Laurence Maroney plays, they should be up big in this game in the second half so Morris should be at least a solid #3 RB this week.

Fred Taylor at Indianapolis – He’s been quiet so far but the only thing the Jags can really do against the Colts is run the ball.

LenDale White vs. Houston – Have to think he’ll be heavily involved again when they get a lead. White should be a solid #3 RB this week.

Wide Receiver

Amani Toomer vs. Cincinnati – CB Johnathan Joseph is doubtful to play so Toomer could continue to put up good numbers this week against a suspect Bengal secondary.

Bryant Johnson vs. Detroit – Strictly a matchup play here vs. a weak Lion secondary. Johnson got red zone looks last week which is a good sign he’ll be involved there again.

Laurent Robinson vs. Kansas City – They are starting two rookies at CB this week. Robinson is a real reach here but I’m actually starting him in one league because of injuries to my top WRs.

David Patten vs. Denver – There will be a ton of passing in this game and by the end, Patten should have decent numbers. Start him as your #3 WR.

Isaac Bruce vs. Detroit – He did well last week against a much better secondary.


Buffalo vs. Oakland – There’s no way Oakland is going to move the ball well in this road matchup for them.

    Maurice Jones Drew (Jax) or Jonathon Stewart (Car)? Who would you play this week?

    Points for RB catches in our league.

    Useful thoughts, Adam. Is Chester Taylor a good reach this week even if Peterson starts?
