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.

Week 8 Fantasy Football Grades

Posted by Giants.com on October 31, 2012 – 9:42 am

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

Start

Cam Newton QB Panthers

Last Week: 351 total yards

Newton had another impressive outing throwing the ball in the windy city, which is usually a challenge for everyone else.  Though he failed to find the end zone, Newton showed that he can still throw it with the best of them and that he’s not going without a fight this season.  Look for him to improve weekly, especially with the worst pass defense up next on the schedule, which could lead to his best game of the
year.

(Arrow Up)

Alex Green RB Packers

Last Week: 82 total yards

Green had another consistent day at the office, rushing for 54 yards off of 22 carries and catching four passes for 28 yards receiving.  Still waiting for that goal line carry and breakout performance, Green will most likely get another crack at it next week vs. Arizona Cardinals.

(Arrow Up)

Patriots Defense: 7 points allowed, 2 interceptions, 2 sacks

The New England Patriots as a whole put on a show in London when they faced the St. Louis Rams on Sunday.  Not only did the defense give up just seven points on the day, but the offense scored 45 points. That means the Rams offense had plenty of opportunities to do damage, but just couldn’t get it done vs. a proven and one of the most underrated defenses in the league today.

(Arrow Up)

Greg Olsen TE Panthers

Last Week: 3 catches 23 yards

You would think that if Cam Newton threw for over 315 yards that his tight end would reap at least some chunks of receiving yards, which was far from the case.  Olsen will have to wait another for the next matchup against his former team, if he wants to get some sort of revenge.

Fantasy Football Primer: Week 8

Posted by Fantasy_101 on October 27, 2012 – 11:11 am

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

Start

Cam Newton QB Panthers

Last Week: 233 passing yards, 2 turnovers, TD

Newton’s second year has been a disappointment to say the least in both fantasy and in the National Football League standards.  Though most of the Panthers’ problems have been linked to Newton, the lack of playmakers hasn’t helped his production in the least bit.  With one of the best defenses in the league coming up on the schedule, I’m going to say Superman comes through as he did last year when he faced one of the most highly touted defenses in the league, rushing for 2 touchdowns, while throwing for another and passing  for 374 yards.  Risk=reward.

Robert Meachem WR Chargers

Last Game: 3 catches, 30 yards

Excluding Meachem’s Week 5 homecoming in the Mercedes-Benz Superdome (3 catches, 67 yards, 2 touchdowns), the former Tennessee Volunteer has yet to have another start that justifies him as a top 3 wideout for your team, that is until this week.  Meachem will be facing a Browns secondary who has given up an average of 277 yards passing per game, ranking 26th in the league.  With Joe Haden covering the likes of Malcolm Floyd, this should exploit the secondary just enough for Meachem to be something he has yet to show all year.

Alex Green RB Packers

Last Week: 35 rushing yards

Green has seen plenty of carries since Cedric Benson has been sidelined, totaling 53 carries in the past 3 weeks.  Though his average in these games have been anything but noteworthy (3.1) on the year and
(1.8) last week, Green will try to improve on that when he has the task of playing the 29th ranked rush defense in Jacksonville, giving up an average of 147 yards per game.  Add in the fact that the Packers should be ahead plenty into the 4th and running out the clock, Green could very well be the sleeper of the week.

Fantasy Preview: Thursday Night Football

Posted by Fantasy_101 on October 25, 2012 – 10:56 am

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

TE Kyle Rudolph, Vikings

Last Week: 0 catches

After posting five touchdown catches in the past six games, Rudolph produced absolutely nothing last week vs. the Arizona Cardinals.  The Vikings tight end will be going up against the 31st ranked pass defense in the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and should be able to pick off where he left off from Weeks 2-6 and continue to have a great sophomore year.

RB Doug Martin, Buccaneers

Last Week: 16 carries, 85 yards, TD

Martin has been somewhat of a pleasant surprise thus far throughout the
2012 season.  Averaging more than four yards per carry and 408 yards rushing in six games, the rookie running back out of Boise State looks to be among this year’s first-year running back steals, along the likes of Alfred Morris.  The only criticism that could be warranted would be only having two touchdowns on the year, but that should change in no time.

Week 7 Fantasy Football Grades

Posted by Fantasy_101 on October 23, 2012 – 5:25 pm

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

Andrew Luck: 198 total yards, 2 Touchdowns, fumble

Luck’s performance on Sunday was not his best of the year. But he did manage to rush for two of his touchdowns, which was huge and made up for an otherwise average passing day.  The rookie quarterback has shown the threat of running as well as throwing.

(Arrow Up)

Felix Jones: 74 total yards

Jones wasn’t anything spectacular as most anticipated because he had to leave the game before the half was even over. Still he didn’t by any means have a bad week with five catches for 30 yards and 44 yard rushing before being diagnosed with bruised knee and not returning to action.

(Arrow Up)

Stephen Hill: 4 catches, 55 yards, 7 targets

Hill had a productive day with the most targets he has received all season.  Though he only had 55 yards, Sanchez looked his way seven times, which was good enough for second behind Kerley’s 11. It is clear that Hill has the talent. Now we just need to see the productivity when the game is on the line, where he was unable to do vs. New England.

Fantasy Football Primer: Week 7

Posted by Fantasy_101 on October 19, 2012 – 9:45 am

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

Start

QB Andrew Luck, Colts

Last Week: 280 passing yards, 3 turnovers

Luck arguably had his worst performance of the year this past Sunday as the New York Jets dominated the Colts offense all game long.  Forcing Luck to throw 2 interceptions and fumble once.  With the Cleveland Browns and their 30th ranked pass defense coming to Indianapolis and one that has been allowing 294 passing yards per game, doesn’t seem like there’s a better time to start Luck in front of whomever you may have this particular week.

TE Mercedes Lewis, Jaguars

Last Week: 5 catches, 24 yards

Lewis was once considered one of the top tight ends in football. Plagued with injuries over the past few years, that has changed.  He has two touchdown receptions on the year and only 14 catches with just 116 receiving yards in five games.  These numbers aren’t terrible but average at best.  The Raiders pass defense is currently allowing 275 passing yards per game (20th), which never hurts a starting tight ends chance of finding open space and that end-zone.

WR Kenny Britt, Titans

Last Week: 4 catches 62 yards, TD

Britt showed last week that he still is one catch away from making a game changing play.  That doesn’t mean Britt hasn’t showed some rust, as he eases his way back into football mode.  Hasselbeck and Britt look to be the go to connection again in Tennessee, now that Jake Locker (missed the past few weeks with shoulder injury) and Nate Washington, previously held that rank.  Coming off his biggest week yet, the Titans flanker will look to continue his success and carry it over vs. 20th ranked pass defense (256 passing yards allowed per game) in the Buffalo Bills.

Fantasy Preview: Thursday Night Football

Posted by Fantasy_101 on October 18, 2012 – 10:38 am

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

WR Mario Manningham, 49ers

Last Week: 5 catches, 72 yards, 10 targets

Manningham has been an average fantasy receiver throughout the first six weeks of the regular season, gathering 258 yards, 24 receptions and one touchdown.  Still looking for that signature breakout game, the new San Francisco 49ers wideout will try to do it against the 13th ranked Seattle Seahawks pass defense, that gave up 395 yards last week with an average of 224 passing yards per game.

WR Braylon Edwards, Seahawks

Last Week: 2 catches, 21 yards, TD

Though Edwards has only caught eight passes for 74 yards and has just 13 targets on the entire year, he proved in Week 6 that he still is very much a threat in the red zone.  With a former team on the schedule in the San Francisco 49ers, Edwards could get some revenge as the Seahawks will be facing the second-ranked rush defense, possibly forcing and putting much emphasis on Russell Wilson and the Seattle offense to go into more of an aerial attack mode.
