Weekly MATTchups: Week Fourteen

If you are still alive, congratulations. With just a few weeks remaining in the fantasy football season, now is not the time to be a hero. Being safe is not a bad thing and there are plenty of good matchups that should allow you to do just that this week.

Indianapolis Colts at Baltimore Ravens

Ray Rice and the Ravens ran all over the Browns last week and could do much of the same this week. We know the Colt defense is vulnerable on the ground and through the air, but I don’t expect to see Joe Flacco throwing very much when he can hand the ball off to one of the best RBs in the game. When the Ravens do throw it, Torrey Smith could be getting some looks downfield, which makes him an intriguing option as a flex play this week. Dan Orlovsky might have been the captain of the garbage-time production offense last week against the Patriots, but I doubt he and the Colts get that kind of production against a much better Raven defense in Baltimore on Sunday.

Atlanta Falcons at Carolina Panthers

The Falcon run defense may be one of the best in the league, but they had [...]

  • First draft of the 2015 season April 14, 2015
    Although it is disgustingly early for a 2015 fantasy football draft for most, we are closing in on the time of the year when a draft is at least viable. Free agency is basically over, so all we have to wait for now is the draft. I’ve also been intrigued with what our friends at myfantasyleague.com have been doing with their MFL10s. It’s a great idea for the […]

  • Week 17 storylines December 26, 2014
    Here are the top stories I’m following for Week 17 Cleveland (7-8) at Baltimore (9-6) Brown QB situation. Brian Hoyer (right shoulder/biceps) did not practice Friday. Rookie Connor Shaw is set to start for them at Baltimore. Do they give Terrance West any snaps to evaluate him? He played 0 snaps last week. Does Josh Gordon do anything to leave us something t […]

  • Week 16 storylines December 19, 2014
    Here are the top stories that I will be following in Week 16 for fantasy. Philadelphia (9-5) at Washington (3-11) Robert Griffin III did play better last week, but does it mean anything? It’s hard to trust him even against a beatable secondary and a defense that lost a top pass rusher in Trent Cole. If you’re playing in Week 17, can you trust DeSean Jackson, […]
