Weekly MATTchups: Week Seven

Quarterback changes and player movement dominated the headlines this week and should make for a very interesting set of games. Without further ado, let us take a loot at the thirteen matchups.

Washington Redskins at Carolina Panthers

The fans we actually chanting “We Want Beck” last week, and that sums up Rex Grossman’s career in a nutshell. Don’t expect the Redskin offense to change very much with John Beck under center, although it would be nice to know that Ryan Torain was starting AND getting a decent amount of carries. However, when it comes to the Shanahans, you need to reevaluate the RB situation on a weekly basis. I’m fully expecting the Panthers to target DeAngelo Hall, so expect Steve Smith to be on the end of a few deep balls in this one.

Seattle Seahawks at Cleveland Browns

I never understood why the Browns were seriously contemplating giving Peyton Hillis a nice contract extension when they have his replacement in Montario Hardesty, especially with Hillis’ physical running style.

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 […]

  • Week 8 story lines October 23, 2014
    Here are the story lines I’ll be following this week in the NFL for fantasy San Diego (5-2) at Denver (5-1) Can Branden Oliver run on a very tough run defense? Can Bronco killer Keenan Allen do anything special against likely top corner Aqib Talib? Can Ronnie Hillman keep it up and further distance himself from Montee Ball? Detroit (5-2) at Atlanta (2-5) Can […]
