Week 11 Reaches

Digging deep this week with 19 reaches:
 
Quarterback
 
Tyler Thigpen vs. New Orleans – He could be one of the best waiver wire pickups of the year and he faces an injured Saint defense and secondary. If he keeps playing well, he’ll be their starter for sure next year.
 
Sage Rosenfels at Indianapolis – Sure he’ll turn it over and will take some sacks, but by the end of the game, the numbers will be there–just like every week with this guy.
 
Jake Delhomme vs. Detroit – He’s been a disappointment pretty much all season, but how he could not do well this week? 
 
Running Back
 
Deuce McAllister at Kansas City – The Chiefs will likely be without at least three starters in their front seven so McAllister makes for a nice #3 RB this week.
 
Ricky Williams vs. Oakland – He looked spry last week and the Raider run defense is weak.
 
Jerious Norwood vs. Denver – Nice reach here for a flex option against the usually shaky Bronco run defense.
 
Correll Buckhalter at Cincinnati – This would go with my Brent Celek reach of a few weeks ago, but even more of a reach. I’m banking on the Eagles to blow out the Bengals. If it happens, [...]

COACHING TAPE – WEEK 10 (11/15/08)

Editor’s Note: Welcome to a new blog here on FantasyGuru.com. This blog will include the raw notes taken by our own Greg Cosell as he prepares for the Matchup Show on ESPN by analyzing NFL coach’s tape. Greg is Senior Producer of the show, and he’s been a producer at NFL Films for over 20 years. 

EAGLES OFFENSE VS. GIANTS DEFENSE

Eagles only ran 57 offensive plays, and had the ball for only 20:50
Eagles only 300 total yards, and only 3-11 on third down conversions
Eagles 5 trips inside the red zone, 4 TD; 3-3 goal-to-go efficiency
Blackburn started at WLB for the Giants, Wilkinson inactive – Phillips started at S with Butler inactive
Jackson 9 yard TD: Direct snap to Jackson in the shotgun with Buckhalter offset to his right, McNabb was split wide left outside the numbers, Westbrook slot left; Sweep right behind pulling RT Runyan and leading Buckhalter
Interesting front alignment by the Giants on a 3rd + 7 in the second quarter: Tuck and Tollefson stood up as LBs with only 2 DL with their hands on the ground; Giants actually blew the coverage, and did not account for TE Smith, but S Phillips got in [...]

  • Be master of your fantasy matchup domain July 9, 2014
    As I hope most subscribers fully comprehend, I am on a never-ending mission to improve FantasyGuru.com as a service. There is no end to this pursuit; it’s a constantly evolving endeavor that for me will only conclude when I’m no longer with the site, which, thanks in large part to the surprise arrival of twins in 2006 for my wife and me, won’t be happening a […]
