Fantasy Football Primer

Posted by Fantasy_101 on November 30, 2012 – 3:04 pm

The views expressed in this article are not of the New York Football Giants but those of an independent Fantasy Expert.

fantasy-fb113111111Knowshown Moreno RB Broncos, last week: 85 rushing yards

Moreno looked like a former first round pick last week at Arrow Stadium, running the ball 20 times for 85 yards while adding four receptions for 26 yards. Although the Broncos face the best rush defense in the league this week, Tampa Bay also ranks 32nd in the league defending the pass, which will make for an interesting matchup with Peyton Manning at quarterback.  The Broncos offense should be able to get the play-action going early and open up plenty of opportunities for Moreno and the entire Denver offense.

Andy Dalton QB Bengals, last week: 210 passing yards, 3 TDs

Dalton has nine touchdowns in his past three games played.  Through that three-game span, the red rifle hasn’t turned the ball over once and has yet to throw an interception in over a month (since Week 9 vs Denver).  With the San Diego Chargers pass defense ranking 20th in the NFL  (243 yards up per game) and his new favorite red zone target, Mohamed Sanu  4 Td’s in last 3 games), the Bengals should have no trouble putting up points against an average Chargers defense.

Aaron Hernandez TE Patriots, last week: 36 receiving yards

Though Hernandez has had a disappointing year due to lingering injuries, this week against the Dolphins could be one where the starting tight end could have his breakout performance of the year. The last game he played in Miami last season was a memorable one, catching seven passes for 103 yards and a touchdown.  Tom Brady had 517 passing yards and four touchdowns.  No Rob Gronkowski this week only betters a good situation to begin with at the tight end position for Hernandez owners.

Steve Johnson WR Bills, last week: 106 yards receiving

Johnson hasn’t had the season most owners anticipated when originally drafting him.  Without a touchdown in four straight games, he should get right back on track vs. the Jaguars’ 28th ranked pass defense, allowing 274 yards a game through the air.  After Johnson had opened the season with a touchdown reception in each of his first three games, he’s had only one since and a single 100-yard game all year.  Look for Johnson to find the end zone for the fifth time on the year and possibly have his best game thus far.

Top Defense: Jets, Last week:  49 points allowed, TD

The Jets defensive performance last week was possibly the worst in the Rex Ryan era. The game was anything but ordinary as the Patriots scored three touchdowns in under 60 seconds, two of which came from special teams touchdowns.  However, look for them to bounce back strong when facing the Arizona Cardinals, who rank 30th in rushing and 24th in passing.

Bench

Jay Cutler QB Bears, last week:  188 passing yards, TD

Cutler has been getting all types of respect lately around the league after what we saw vs. San Francisco. Alhough his numbers have been anything but stellar for fantasy, he has led his team to a position where they can win the division.  The Seattle Seahawks secondary ranks third in the league, while the Bears are 32nd in passing offense, good for dead last.  Even with a few Seattle corners suspended, Cutler will see better days.

Titans defense, last week: 24 points allowed, turnover, 7 sacks

The Tennessee Titans rank 27th in both pass and rush defense. The Houston Texans, meanwhile, rank fifth in rushing and 10th in passing.  All signs point to the bench for this struggling defense, which has allowed opponents score as high as 38 two times, 41, and even a 51-spot put up by the Chicago Bears back in Week 9.

BenJarvus Green-Ellis RB Bengals, last week: 129 rushing yards, TD

Green Ellis has had back to back 100-yard rushing games for the first time in his career, gaining 101 and a score vs. Chiefs and last week 129 and a touchdown vs. Raiders.  In the past 4 weeks, Green-Ellis has 3 touchdowns and 336 rushing yards.  With the Chargers ranking 6th in rush defense, allowing 87 yards per game, Green-Ellis’ streak could very well come to a close this weekend in San Diego.

Jeremy Maclin WR Eagles, last week: 55 yards receiving

After the news that DeSean Jackson was done for the year, Jeremy Maclin immediately become a sought after wide receiver.  But if you’re looking for production or consistency right away, look elsewhere.  He has only one 100-yard game all year and zero catches in Week 11.  Maclin has had a lot of hype since coming into the league and has had great games in the past, but with Nick Foles learning and getting the experience he needs in order to succeed in the league, the Eagles passing game is anything but attractive these days.  Going up against the Cowboys ninth-ranked pass defense and stud corners shouldn’t help matters as well.
