Caplan’s Reaches: Week Five

Quarterback

David Garrard at Seattle – It’s getting to the point with him that we may not be calling him a reach much longer. Garrard is starting to look like one of the best values in fantasy football this season. He’ll face a struggling defense, and his much improved offensive line has been giving him a lot of time to throw the ball. Look for him to post at least two TDs and 225 yards in this matchup of two bad defenses.

Kerry Collins vs. Indianapolis – The formula has been the same every week. Their secondary causes Collins to throw the ball more than the coaches want, and he posts big passing numbers. Nothing looks to change against the high-powered Colt offense. Look for big numbers again from Collins.

Running Back

Chester Taylor at St. Louis – We see no way that the Rams will be able to hang in this game, so Taylor figures to have his chance to post good numbers later on. Look for him to post 50-70 yards and a score in this matchup.

  • Week 10 story lines November 7, 2014
    Here are the top stories that I will be following in Week 10. Tennessee (2-6) at Baltimore (5-4) How does the RB situation behind Justin Forsett shake out? There’s some value in the #2 spot, but it’s a revolving door with Bernard Pierce and Lorenzo Taliaferro. Does Owen Daniels continue to be a large factor? He should because he’s a huge part of this passing […]

  • Week 9 story lines October 31, 2014
    Here are the top stories I will be following in Week Nine of the NFL. Jacksonville (1-7) at Cincinnati (4-2) Can Denard Robinson continue to produce behind a bad OL?
