FANTASY PLAYOFFS ARE HERE
Great Scott Marty! Did we time travel or are we already at that time of year when FFL Studs leave the Duds behind and continue on for Fantasy Glory? Seems like yesterday that we had the Thursday Night NFL opening game! How has my Fantasy team of QB Andrew Luck,RB DeMarco Murray, RB J. Charles, WR Randall Cobb, WR Andre Johnson, TE Jimmy Graham and DEF New Orleans done well? I’ve been out of the country for 2 months….? Wait…what?
Congratulations on making it into the playoffs! You must have read my columns! Lol, well some of them anyway.
Here is your first rule of thumb this time of year. Play your studs. Even if the match-ups are great, play them. Start/Sit advice is for when you have real choices, so if you see someone advise you to sit you stud, play them unless you have another GOOD option (Dez this week vs. M. Evans) etc.
- Roethlisberger- going to be a shoot-out in Cincy.
- Dalton- see above
- Wilson- going against BAL DEF and should be solid.
- Cam Newton- Throwing at ATL DEF should be like fish in a barrel.
- Carson Palmer- Minn DEF is missing 3 main starters and Carson could have career game.
- Drew Brees- another big shoot-out potential against T-Bay.
- Winston- see above
- Bortles- Indy may let Blake throw 3+ easy TD’s.
- Eli Manning- giants playoffs are on the line versus a suspect Miami DEF
- Stewart- I know, but they are playing the Falcons
- Miller-I know, but they are playing the Giants!
- McCoy-Shady’s back, back again….wanting to prove to the City of Brotherly Love some Brotherly Justice! Coach Ryan will most likely and literally have Shady as the only Captain out there, and going to spoon feed him the ball in various ways 25 times.
- Gurley-because they cant throw.
- Draughn-wanting to make an impact with this opportunity and its against the Browns.
- Williams-Bengals DB’s and linebackers will be busy covering the weapons of the Steelers and leave some meat on the bone for Mr. Williams.
- Allen Robinson-because he’s a stud going against Indy.
- Baldwin-Baltimore is already making tee times.
- Watkins- He is hot with a QB that can get it to him with confidence now.
- AJ Green-He is liable to break the playoff hopes of the Steelers with huge game.
