Fantasy Football Primer

Posted by Fantasy_101 on December 21, 2012 – 10:52 am

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

START

fantasy-fb113111111QB Sam Bradford, Rams

Last Week: 377 passing yards, 3 TDs

Bradford has had a rollercoaster-type season thus far in 2012. He has thrown only 11 interceptions all year (and one fumble lost) to go along with his 18 passing touchdowns. However, he has four games in which he didn’t throw a touchdown and only three in which he threw for more
than 300 yards. But whichever quarterback is playing Tampa Bay’s seems to have one of their best games statistically of the year.  Tampa Bay ranks last in pass defense, allowing an average of 310 passing yards per game.

RB Vick Ballard, Colts

Last Week: 105 rushing yards

Ballard has been a pleasant surprise for owners who have been facing injuries at the running back position.  In the past three weeks alone, he’s totaled 271 yards and a touchdown.  With Kansas City’s rush defense ranking 27th in the league, giving up 136 yards per week on the ground, look for Ballard to continue his success this upcoming Sunday.

WR Justin Blackmon, Jaguars

Last Week: 93 yards receiving

Blackmon’s rookie season has produced just three touchdowns up to this point. He’s had his highs (Week 11, 236 receiving yards, 7 catches and one touchdown) and lows, having four games combined for just
23 yards and three catches.  Whenever going up against New England (29th in league in pass defense, 270 ypg allowed), it could be a shootout, meaning more balls are going to be thrown his way, regardless of the score of the game.

TE Tony Scheffler, Lions

Last Week: 36 yards receiving

Although Schefller hasn’t had the numbers to validate any type of start this year, he is in a Lions offense where they love to sling around the ball all game long.  With only one touchdown all year, this is definitely a greedy start, but if you put into account that Pettigrew will be out, it gets more and more intriguing. Especially if you are thin at the tight end position, this could be your guy who is the x-factor for your championship matchup.

Top Defense: Dolphins

Last Week: 3 points allowed, 2 sacks

Miami’s defense has kept them in the playoff hunt all season long. The last time the Bills and Dolphins played was back in Week 11, where Miami allowed 19 points, gathered three sacks, and had a touchdown on defense and one on special teams.  Now in Week 16, the Dolphins will be playing at home in warm weather and should put together a nice week for owners seeking a defense that won’t hurt them this week with negative points.

BENCH

QB Phillip Rivers, Chargers

Last Week: 121 passing yards, 2 turnovers

Rivers is wrapping up back-to-back dreadful seasons, according to his standards. If you take away the past two seasons, people were talking about Rivers possibly being one the best QB’s in the league. Now him and Mark Sanchez are in the same category as being the two who have turned the ball over the most the past two years.  The Jets secondary has always been solid, ranking second in the league by allowing just 191 passing yards per game.  Rex Ryan’s job on the line, and the Jets defense will come out swinging.

RB Mikel Leshoure, Lions

Last Week: 55 yards, TD

Leshoure has had an impressive 2012 campaign, considering all the injuries he had to overcome and is still overcoming.  Whenever this guy is healthy, he does plenty of damage, but what’s good about a running back when he is indeed injured.  The Falcons will be playing for everything this Saturday, trying to wrap up home-field advantage and the No.1 seed in the NFC, while Detroit’s season has been over for a few weeks now.  Resting seems like the best option and even if he is ready to go, he’s had just one 100-yard game all year and that was his first game he started back in Week 3, when he was as healthy as he could possibly be.

Leonard Hankerson: 56 yards, 2 touchdowns

Hankerson is a hit or miss every week.  He either catches 50-yard bombs for touchdowns or doesn’t catch it at all.  Coming off his best game of his short career, Hankerson is a tempting start for owners that are looking for that breakout start of the week.  Keep in mind Robert Griffin III will be playing, not Kirk Cousins (329 yards passing, 2 touchdowns, last week), who loves throwing the deep ball to Hankerson. RG3 is more of a Pierre Garçon and Santa Moss guy, when looking down the field for that big play.

Vernon Davis TE 49ers, last week: one catch

Davis has been almost irrelevant for the 49ers since Colin Kaepernick has taken over as the starting quarterback.  In his past four games, he’s had four catches for 29 yards and no touchdowns.  He’s one of the best, if not the best, tight end in the NFL. But he is being under utilized in the biggest way possible. Until proven, Davis is bench worthy.

Cowboys defense

Last Week: 2 turnovers, 4 sacks, allowed 24 points

The Cowboys have been hot as of late, and the New Orleans Saints will be coming into Dallas with nothing to lose or play for in Week 16.  But whenever you go up against a quarterback with the talent of Drew Brees, it’s never too wise to play that opposing defense, in a pass friendly stadium such as the one in Dallas. Even if the Cowboys do play well, the Saints always seem to pad up the stats towards the end of every game they play.
