Week One Reaches

After last year’s success, I’m back with more for Week One:

Quarterback

Joe Flacco vs. Kansas City – While the Ravens will still be a power
running team on offense, we’re expecting them to throw more on early downs.
Against the Chiefs, Flacco should have no trouble against one of the league’s
worst defenses. Even though this game should be a blowout and he might not need
to throw much, he’ll have very good success when it puts the ball in the air.
Look for Flacco to be a nice low-end starter this week.

Matt Hasselbeck vs. St. Louis – I understand how shaky his offensive
line is, but the Ram secondary is average at best. When Hasselbeck throws the
ball, he’ll have success spreading the ball around to his open receivers. He’s
not a bad low-end starter this week.

Running Back

Mike Bell vs. Detroit – With the likelihood that he’ll handle most of
the carries in this game against what looks to be a bad Lion defense, Bell could
find success early and often. He could easily have 80-100 yards and 1-2 TDs–by
the start of the fourth quarter. So Bell is really looking like a nice #3 RB or
better for fantasy owners this week.

Willis McGahee vs. Kansas City – Yeah, we [...]

  • Week 15 storylines December 13, 2014
    Here are the top stories I’ll be following in Week 15 with some insight on some of them. Pittsburgh (8-5) at Atlanta (5-8) Will Julio Jones play? It’s obviously a huge key for Matt Ryan’s ability to hang with the Steelers in a high-scoring game. Without Jones, they have no explosiveness in the passing game and Ryan will have to dink-and-dunk to Roddy White a […]

  • Week 14 storylines December 6, 2014
    Here are all the storylines that I will be following in Week 14 along with some commentary and information on the matchups. Pittsburgh (7-5) at Cincinnati (8-3-1) Can Ben Roethlisberger play better against a solid secondary that has limited him to only 16.0 points a game against them in his last four games? Is Heath Miller someone we can actually trust in th […]

  • 30 slam-dunk fantasy starters for the playoffs December 2, 2014
    Here is a list of 30 no-brainer starters for the fantasy playoffs. I would imagine that 95% of fantasy players (or more) should start these players the next 2-3 weeks (if healthy) no matter what. I did leave several high-end options off the list (like the Bear WRs) due to some recent issues and lack of production. Note: These are listed by position, and in n […]
