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 [...]

  • 12-team NFFC draft results (from 8/30) August 31, 2014
    Here are the results of the 12-team PPR 3rd round reversal NFFC 20-round draft I participated in last night in New York City. I was pretty pleased with the draft and felt I was generally ahead of the curve. While I did have to pay a premium for some players early, I did get solid value for others later. In a high-stakes draft, you have to be very proactive a […]
