Weekly MATTchups: Week Thirteen

With the playoff fantasy season upon us, this is no time to get cute with lineup decisions. You should not feel the need to shake things up just for the hell of it and I implore you not to try to be a hero. Here are my thoughts on Week Thirteen.

Tennessee Titans at Buffalo Bills

Ryan Fitzpatrick and the Bill offense came back to life last week against the Jets of all teams. Lost in Stevie Johnson’s controversial TD celebration was one of the best performances we’ve ever seen against Darrelle Revis. Unfortunately, we didn’t see much from C.J. Spiller, although that really should be that surprising considering how little Spiller had been used before Fred Jackson landed on the IR. Speaking of coming back to life, Chris Johnson emerged from the fantasy graveyard yet again last week with a huge performance against the weak Buccaneer run defense. Johnson could be in for another product game this week with the Bills struggling to stop the run and both Johnson and the Titans seem to understand that Johnson needs a high volume of carries to get going and he should get that in this game.

I use the word “massive” a lot because it describes most of the articles we do. I really want to continue to try to scale back our word counts because I […]

  • Just missed it: Week 14 December 12, 2013
    I have been a little behind lately spending more time on more important things, and I missed two weeks ago also due to the holiday, but here are raw notes showing all if not most of Week 14’s “Just missed it” plays. If you’re looking for perfect grammar and punctuation, don’t read this. WR Mike Brown drops a TD pass on opening drive of game. Maurice Jones-Dr […]

  • Just missed it: Week Eleven November 21, 2013
    Here is another batch of just missed it type plays from Week 11. These are raw notes, so they were not edited for quality control.
