Week Two Thoughts

I’ll post my random thoughts here on selected players by position:

Quarterback

Jake Delhomme – I was asked about this in Wednesday’s chat. Will he hurt Steve
Smith? The answer is yes, for now. Until Delhomme can find some consistency,
he’s going to hurt Smith’s productivity and upside. That’s not something that
can be argued at this point. Hoping for the best, but it way take some time. A.J.
Feeley can be good for 3-4 games, but asking him to start several games is a
problem.

Matt Ryan – Good sign when he doesn’t play well that he can still put up some
numbers. Again, as we correctly stated in our preseason analysis, how are
defenses going to stop them? You can only really take away one guy from their
offense each week.

Joe Flacco – I think they finally realized he has to get the ball early in the
game. Read Greg Cosell’s film room blog to get an idea of this. They finally are
letting Flacco throw on first downs. I think he’s at least a low-end #1 QB for
fantasy now. I had a long talk with him earlier this year about the coaches

wanted the chance to throw [...]

    Just a quick note today for those drafting (Sunday, August 17, 2014) that I have updated projections taking into account the Friday and Saturday games. The problem with doing this is our PDF cheat sheets and excel files are now behind what the projections and the custom cheat sheet have. When we do our main projection updates early and late in the week, it’s […]
