Buffalo Wild Wings Update: Week Three

I won my game last week with good performances from most of my players, and because I benched RB C.J. Spiller, who is permanently on my bench. It looks like RB Clinton Portis, expected to be my flex starter, is now my #2 RB, and I will have to roll with more WRs than I’d like. I’m glad I picked up Mark Clayton, who was THE WR pickup of the week last week according to me, since he’s probably now a weekly starter for me. Since I’m hurting a little at RB with mediocre (for now) depth options like Willis McGahee and Chester Taylor (plus Spiller), I stashed-and-hoped with RB Anthony Dixon, who would be money for me if Frankie Gore got hurt. Garrett Hartley came through for me, so he’s my guy, and I’m giving the Raider defense another try, since I think QB Derek Anderson stinks.

Here’s my lineup for Week Three:
QB    Tom Brady, NE QB
RB    Adrian Peterson, Min RB
RB    Clinton Portis, Was RB
RB/WR    Mark Clayton, StL WR
WR    Greg Jennings, GB WR
WR    Jeremy Maclin, Phi WR
WR    Malcom Floyd, SD WR
TE    Jermichael Finley, GB TE
D/ST    Raiders D/ST, Oak D/ST
K    Garrett Hartley, NO K

  • Position Battle Playing Time for First Full Week of Preseason Action August 13, 2014
    We continue to update the position battles around the league, but in this blog, I thought looking at preseason playing time would be interesting. The depth chart doesn’t always tell the whole story and it’s certainly worth noting when players get in the game and who they get to play with, whether it’s with the first-team offense or the backups. If you’re loo […]

  • Poll Result Analysis: RB Sleeper Candidate Targets August 12, 2014
    Over the last week, we posted a poll asking you which RB sleeper candidate was at the top of your targets list. The results varied throughout the week and Falcon rookie RB Devonta Freeman led most of the way, but things certainly changed after a full week of preseason games:                           As you can see, the final results put 49er rookie RB Carlo […]
