We nailed a bunch of them again last week so lets do it again with over 20 reaches:
Matt Ryan vs. New Orleans – He’s playing at a high level and he’ll have to throw to keep up with the Saint offense.
David Garrard at Detroit – The Lion defense is so bad that even the Jaguar OL can hold their own. Garrard should have a solid game against a suspect Lion secondary.
Sage Rosenfels vs. Baltimore – It comes down to his OL’s ability to handle the Raven front seven. If the OL holds up, there will be plays to be made.
Joe Flacco at Houston – He’s now playing at a pretty good level and he faces a weak Texan secondary.
Deuce McAllister at Atlanta – If Grady Jackson can’t play, McAllister should wind up being at least a solid #3 RB in this matchup. If the old man plays, look at McAllister as a flex option.
Kevin Smith vs. Jacksonville – He seems to do something of note each week and the Jaguars are without starting DT John Henderson.
Kevin Faulk vs. Buffalo – He should get plenty of touches again and looks to be a solid flex option or better in this matchup.
BenJarvus Green-Ellis vs. Buffalo – If LaMont Jordan is inactive again, he’ll get goal-line looks again.
Ray Rice at Houston – It’s a little risky because his role isn’t totally defined but the Texan defense is weak and they will be without starting DT Amobi Okoye. Rice should get enough touches this week for him to be a solid flex option.
DeAngelo Williams at Oakland – Even if Jonathan Stewart plays, this matchup is too good to pass up for Williams who should be a solid #3 RB this week or better.
Mewelde Moore vs. Indianapolis – The Colts don’t stop the run so look for Moore to be a solid #2 RB this week.
Jerious Norwood vs. New Orleans – He finally has a clearly defined role so he gets strong flex consideration here against an average Saint defense.
Derrick Mason at Houston – Not sure if he’s even a reach but while he does’t score much, he catches a lot of passes. The matchup is great and he’s on a roll. Find a way to get him in your lineup.
Matt Jones at Detroit – Milk his matchups while he’s not suspended. It doesn’t get much better than this. It’s amazing that this guy, who looks like he’s running in place, is actually a good fantasy option most weeks.
Greg Camarillo vs. Seattle – He’ll have his posession role going again in this matchup and he fits in as a #3 WR in PPR leagues on Sunday.
Mark Clayton at Houston – He’s finally a big part of their passing game and the Texan secondary is terrible.
Muhsin Muhammad at Oakland – He’ll face Oakland CB Chris Johnson most likely who is really a KR. Nice reach play here.
Jeremy Shockey at Atlanta – He’s done next to nothing as a Saint but the Falcon secondary is less than average. Shockey had a good week of practice so it’s overdue here to do something good for fantasy owners.
Bo Scaife at Chicago – When they do throw the ball, there’s a good chance it’s going to him.
Marcedes Lewis at Detoit – He won’t catch a lot of passes but when they get into the redzone, he’ll have a great chance to score because of his size.
Jacksonville at Detroit – We have to think that even though they aren’t very good this year, they can take advantage of the bad QB situation with the Lions.
Miami vs. Seattle – The Seahawk offense can’t move the ball well so Miami is a nice one-week reach play.
Carolina at Oakland – Oakland’s offense is a disaster so Carolina is looking real good here.
San Diego vs. Kansas City – Look for the Charger defense to be real aggressive here and they’ll get some sacks and turnovers.
Arizona vs. San Francisco – The 49er offense turns the ball over a lot so that plays into Arizona’s hands in this home matchup.
