Week Eight Reaches

Note: Players are in no particular order.

Quarterback

David Garrard at Tennessee – While Titan starting CB Cortland Finnegan may be
playing this week, starting CB Nick Harper (forearm) won’t be. The matchup is
still solid and they the Titan secondary was healthy, they were still
struggling.

Matthew Stafford vs. St. Louis – Stafford hasn’t played in a while, so there’s
some risk with him and he may not have starting WR Calvin Johnson. But if he
does, Stafford could do quite well against a suspect Ram secondary.

Marc Bulger at Detroit – The Lion secondary is one of the weakest in the NFL and
if you’re looking for a one-week reach that has a good matchup, Bulger would fit
that role.

Running Back

Shonn Greene vs. Miami – He’s going to get probably 8-10 carries in this game
and even more if the game is a blowout. Greene is worth a shot if you’re
struggling with bye week issues as your flex player.

Darren Sproles vs. Oakland – Talk about a big play possibility against a bad
defense run defense staring him in the face. Look for Sproles to have a big run
or two in this game, especially in the second half when the game is out of hand.

Mike Bell vs. Atlanta [...]

  • The latest projections August 30, 2015
    Every year on this very day I am faced with the dilemma of having rankings that, despite being less than 2 days old, feel a little stale because of all the action in the critical third preseason game. The problem is it takes forever to update projections, comments, create the PDFs, create the excel files, and update all the apps. It cannot be done over the w […]

  • 8/17 USA Today mock draft August 19, 2015
    I did an expert mock draft for USA Today and their special fantasy preview publication that will hit newsstands next week. I admittedly didn’t focus on the just the draft (I was working on several things at the time) and I simply queued up a bunch of players I liked. It wasn’t efficient at all, and I only like the squad (not love), but for what it’s worth th […]

  • 12-team PPR IDP Mock Draft results June 4, 2015
    I have been buried since the NFL draft doing our post-draft work, 2015 projections, and more, so I didn’t get a chance to post a draft I participated in for most of May (slow draft). It’s for Athlon Sports’ fantasy magazine, so I can’t publish the entire draft. But here’s my team. This league stars 1 QB, 2 RBs, 3 WRs, 1 Flex, 1 TE, 1 PK, 1 DT, 1 DL, 1 LB, 1 […]
