Week 12 Fantasy Football Grades

Posted by Fantasy_101 on November 27, 2012 – 12:00 pm

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

Mohamed Sanu: WR Bengals

Last Week: 5 catches, 29 yards, 2 TDs

Sanu proved to be everything as advertised in the previous weeks, catching the ball five times and scoring twice in the red zone.  The Bengals have suddenly become a possible wild card team for the second straight season.  With Green getting doubled team almost every play, especially in the red zone, look for Sanu to keep catching touchdowns on a weekly basis.

Arrow: Up

Ravens Defense

Last Week: 6 sacks, 13 points allowed

Baltimore had another dominating performance on defense in its 16-13 OT win vs. Chargers.  Although the Ravens didn’t cause a turnover, they did manage to get to Chargers quarterback Phillip RIvers six times.  The Steelers are up next on the schedule and had eight turnovers last week against the Cleveland Browns.

Arrow: Up

Ryan FItzpatrick: QB Bills

Last Week: 180 passing yards, TD, INT

Fitzpatrick wasn’t as effective as he could have been, but at the very least had a touchdown pass and only one turnover.  So he didn’t kill your team, but he also wasn’t winning any matchups for you either. With a game coming up against the Jaguars’ 28th-ranked pass defense, Fitzpatrick will have a good chance of bouncing back.

Arrow: Neutral

Fantasy Football Preview: Week 12

Posted by Fantasy_101 on November 23, 2012 – 11:37 am

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

Ryan Fitzpatrick QB Bills

Last Week: 168 passing yards, no scores

Fitzpatrick is a hit or miss play each week.  Through 10 games, Buffalo’s starting quarterback has gone four times without throwing a single touchdown while only throwing for 300 yards once (Week 10).  With a favorable matchup this week against the Colts’ 20th-ranked pass defense in a must-win game for the 4-6 Bills and 6-4 Colts, this could very well be a shootout.

Ronnie Hillman RB Broncos

Last Week: 43 yards rushing

Hillman had 12 carries for 43 rushing yards last Sunday vs. San Diego, while McGahee was injured and is now out for the season being put on injured reserved.  Facing the 25th-ranked pass rush defense in the Kansas City Chiefs (giving up an average of 129 yards per game), Hillman should reap the benefits in Week 12.

Jalen Parmele RB Jaguars

Last Week: 80 rushing yards

Parmele was one of the hottest commodities this past week in waiver-wire pickups while former starter Rashard Jennings failed to produce. The Titans and their 28th-ranked rush defense (allowing 128 yards per contest) as well as their 26th ranked pass defense (266 yards) look to be favorable for everyone on offense in Jacksonville, especially Parmele.

Week 12 Fantasy Football Primer

Posted by Fantasy_101 on November 20, 2012 – 10:13 am

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

Top Waiver-Wire Adds

RB Jalen Parmele, Jaguars
Last Week: 80 rush yards, TD

Parmele burst onto the fantasy scene this week. When his number was called, he contributed in a way former starter Rashad Jennings failed to do in five games (never gaining more than 60 yards and only one touchdown). With a rocky Tennessee Titans defense up next, Parmele could be at it again.

QB Colin Kaepernick, 49ers
Last week: 243 yards, 2 TD

Alex Smith is getting healthier as we speak, at least he better hope so.  With Kaepernick’s near-flawless game against one of the toughest defenses in the league in the Chicago Bears, there may be a controversy brewing in the Bay Area.

WR Danario Alexander, Rams
Last Week: 96 yards, 2 TD

Alexander has more than proven his worth for any fantasy roster. Compiling for more than 290 yards in his last three games with three touchdowns and 15 receptions, he looks to be Bradford’s new favorite go-to target in St. Louis.  As the Ravens possibly come into town without Ed Reed and an already banged up Baltimore secondary, Bradford and Alexander will try to take full advantage.

Week 10 Fantasy Football Grades

Posted by Fantasy_101 on November 13, 2012 – 11:55 am

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

Jake Locker QB Titans

Last Week: 122 YDS, 2 TD

Locker had a productive game back in the Titans’ starting lineup, taking care of the ball all afternoon by not turning it over once.  He also was able to throw two touchdown passes and had 36 yards rushing.
He isn’t Cam Newton or Andrew Luck, but this quarterback is a nice substitute not named either of those two.

Arrow: Up

Steelers Defense

Last Week: 13 points against, interception, 2 sacks

Pittsburgh had a prototypical game on Monday Night Football, allowing only 13 points and one touchdown in their 16-13 OT winning performance.  Still searching for their first touchdown on defense, the Steelers hope their quarterback of the defense, Troy Polamalu, will make his first start of the season vs. Baltimore in Week 11.

Arrow: Up

Alex Smith QB 49ers

Last Week: 72 YDS, TD

Smith was knocked out of Sunday’s contest against the St. Louis Rams early in the second quarter. Smith was 7 of 8 passing with 72 yards and a touchdown before getting a concussion on a designed quarterback rollout.

Arrow: Neutral

Heath Miller Steelers TE

Last Week: 4 REC, 47 YDS

Miller added 47 yards in Week 10 and now has 431 yards on the year, which is on pace to break his career high of 798 back in 2009.  Ben Roethlisberger’s early exit in Monday night’s game clearly didn’t help Miller’s stats, but should be back to one of the best tight ends next week vs. Baltimore Ravens.

Fantasy Football Primer: Week 10

Posted by Fantasy_101 on November 10, 2012 – 7:42 am

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

Alex Smith 49ers Quarterback

Last Week:  232 passing yards, 3 touchdowns

Smith has only thrown five interceptions through eight games played with 12 touchdown passes.  Though he has only thrown for 300 yards in one game, he has been consistent, and every now and then he’ll give you that top performance that wins you your match-up.

Heath Miller Steelers TE

Last Week: 4 catches for 48 yards

Miller has six touchdown catches, which ranks second in the NFL and only one behind Rob Gronkowski (7) for the most at his position.  Monday Night football vs. a struggling Kansas City team seems like it could lead to a potentially huge day for the Steelers’ passing offense as a whole.

Ryan Broyles Lions WR

Last Week: 6 catches for 52 yards

Broyles’ numbers in his first three games he has played in his professional career are combined for 12 catches for 140 yards and 2 touchdowns.  Calvin Johnson only has 1 touchdown all year, and the leader of the team, Titus Young, has just three an is currently questionable with a knee injury. Stafford and Broyles look to be the x-factors if there were to be any breakout stars for Detroit in Week 10.

Fantasy Preview: Thursday Night Football

Posted by Fantasy_101 on November 7, 2012 – 4:00 pm

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

WR Cecil Shorts, Jaguars

Last Week: 56 receiving yards

Shorts’ production dropped drastically this past week. After having back-to-back 100-yard games, Shorts had 56 yards and was targeted less than both Blackmon and Robinson, who combined for 18 targets in Week 9. The last time Shorts faced the Colts was in Week 3 when he had an 80-yard touchdown reception and his longest play of his career.  With much emphasis on other Jaguars offensive weapons, the Jacksonville wideout has an opportunity to succeed yet again and add to his team-high 456 yards receiving.

WR T.Y. Hilton, Colts

Last Week: 102 receiving yards, TD

Both T.Y. Hilton and Donnie Avery have been putting up numbers every other week it seems.  If one doesn’t have a big game, the other one usually makes up for it.  With the “throw to the open man” style of play in this new Indianapolis offense (that has Andrew Luck being the talk of the league), Hilton should be able to have a productive game against the 25th ranked pass defense as Avery is still listed as a game-time decision.

Week 9 Fantasy Football Grades

Posted by Fantasy_101 on November 6, 2012 – 9:56 am

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

Carson Palmer QB Raiders

Last Week: 414 passing yards, 4 touchdowns

Palmer had the best week out of any quarterback in the league, throwing for over 400 yards and four touchdowns. The Buccaneers secondary held up their end by giving up a little more than 100 yards more passing than their average of 309 per game (31st in the league).  It also didn’t hurt that the fact the Raiders were playing from behind pretty much all game.

(Arrow Up)

Michael Turner RB Falcons

Last Week: 102 rushing yards, touchdown

Turner had another solid performance on Sunday Night Football as usual when playing under the lights, passing the century mark for the first time in five weeks and only the second time all year. With a game in New Orleans next on the Falcons’ schedule, Turner could keep the momentum rolling in a potential shoot out.

(Arrow Up)

Mike Williams WR Buccaneers

Last Week: 68 yards receiving, touchdown

Williams has proven to be as good as advertised this season, hauling in his 5th touchdown catch of the year, to go along with his four grabs for 68 yards.  Williams has only had two games all year where he hasn’t scored or got 100 yards receiving, making him one of the most consistent and valuable wide outs in all of fantasy football.

Fantasy Football Primer: Week 9

Posted by Fantasy_101 on November 2, 2012 – 12:09 pm

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

Week 9 Starters

Carson Palmer QB Raiders

Last Week: 209 passing yards, 2 touchdowns, 1 int

Palmer is quietly having another good season. He has thrown for at least 200 yards in each of his seven games started and has recorded a touchdown in every game but one.  With just five interceptions on the year and nine passing touchdowns, the Raiders veteran QB looks to keep the ball rolling vs. a Tampa Bay Buccaneers defense that ranks 31st in the league, giving up an average of over 309 passing yards per game.

Michael Turner RB Falcons

Last Week:  24 carries, 58 yards

Turner saw plenty of action last week and carried the ball 24 times as the Falcons were in control for most of the game in their 30-17 win.  With two of his worst weeks of the season in back-to-back contests (33 and 58 yards rushing), Turner will look to get back on track this week vs. Dallas.  Though it won’t be easy task by any means, Turner always shows up in big games like these.

Andre Roberts WR Cardinals

Last Week: 65 yards receiving

Roberts continues to show his value as a consistent starting wide out as he hauled in seven catches (tied for career high) last week for 65 yards. Combined with the week before (seven receptions for a career best 103 yards and a touchdown), Roberts’ stock will keep rising as long as the Cardinals are throwing. A trip to Lambeau field is next on the schedule, and that should be the least of their concerns.

Fantasy Preview: Thursday Night Football

Posted by Fantasy_101 on November 1, 2012 – 9:27 am

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

QB Matt Cassel, Chiefs

Last Week: 218 passing yards, TD, 2 turnovers

Cassel has been plagued with injuries for the past few seasons with the Kansas City Chiefs, excluding his first season where he led them to the playoffs and earned a trip to Hawaii.  Lately, though, he has been
receiving more criticism than anyone for the team’s failures — past and present — which is not uncommon for any struggling team to blame the starting quarterback .  What better chance could Cassel ask for than on a prime time stage to show all the doubters he’s still got something?

RB Ronnie Brown, Chargers

Last Week: 102 total yards

Brown is always a risky play due to the plethora of running backs San Diego has established and maintains throughout this season in particular. However, his seven catches for 85 yards and 17 rushing yards last week alone give a more comforting feeling to the situation. Brown has been making his mark on offense in both the passing and rushing attacks and could finally get a chance to score his first touchdown of the year.
