The Weekly MATTchups

There are a lot of terrible games on the schedule this week, but it also means a lot of beatable matchups are out there to make things interesting as we get into fantasy crunch time.

New Orleans Saints at Cincinnati Bengals

Talk about two teams going in different directions. The Saints got off to a slow start, and took some time to right the ship, but it looks like they have done so as they get healthy and rolling down the stretch. The Bengals are just the opposite. Their secondary is banged up, they can’t stop the run, and the passing game is one of the most frustrating in the league. I know Reggie Bush is back, but that doesn’t mean Chris Ivory is going anywhere. He’s a nice play this week, especially with weather possibly being an issue.

  • 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? He’s been basically getting to the perimeter and popping off some longer runs, but he’s also run pretty well inside. He moves very well. Can Allen Robinson continue to produce? He just missed a […]
