Week 6 Fantasy Football Grades

Posted by Fantasy_101 on October 16, 2012 – 4:40 pm

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

Starters

Nate Burleson WR Lions

Last Week: 4 catches, 24 yards, TD

Burleson, like most of the Detroit football team, didn’t seem to come alive until the fourth quarter, where he caught a 17-yard touchdown pass from Matthew Stafford.  Being targeted nine times, only second to Megatron’s 13, Burleson put together an impressive performance that also included 22 rushing yards on two carries.

Arrow: Up

Sam Bradford QB Rams

Last Week: 349 Total Yards, TD

Bradford threw all over the struggling Miami secondary with ease, passing for a season high 315 yards through the air. Though Miami stopped Steven Jackson in the run game, they forgot about Bradford’s ability, and he managed to gain 34 yards on four carries and score a one-yard touchdown.

Arrow: Up

DeMarco Murray RB Cowboys

Last Week: 97 total yards

Murray was finding plenty of room to run against the Baltimore Ravens defense. The only thing that stopped him was an injury in the third quarter. Murray was limited from then on and possibly may be out for a few weeks, though that didn’t stop him from having one of his best outings of the year.

The Giants broadcast and print crew has finally decided to engage in the ultimate contest of football knowledge (and good fortune): Fantasy Football!

Each week Bob Papa, Howard Cross, Roman Oben, Paul Dottino, Jeff Feagles, Anita Marks, John Schmeelk, Lance Medow, Dan Salomone and the man crunching all the numbers, Dave Melroy, will go head to head to prove who is the best (and luckiest) fantasy football player around.

Dollar values are assigned to each player based up on their ranking on NFL.com – and our players choose their team while maintaining a $40 budget.

Tune into Big Blue Kickoff Live every weekday morning from 9:30-10:30 to talk Giants Football and track this year’s New York Giants fantasy football league.

Fantasy Football Primer: Week 6

Posted by Fantasy_101 on October 12, 2012 – 9:28 am

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

Start

Sam Bradford QB Rams

Last Week: 141 yards, 2 TD’s, INT

Bradford has shown plenty of signs that he has that big arm and all the attributes to make any throw in the league.  With a big win last week over the heavily favored Cardinals demonstrating that, Bradford will look to air it out as they face a Dolphins secondary ranking 27th vs. the pass and a rush defense that ranks the best in the business.

DeMarco Murray RB Cowboys

Last game played: 11 carries, 24 yards

Murray’s Week 1 in where he rushed for 131 yards seems like seasons ago, as he has only gained a combined 106 yards rushing in three games since.  Even though Baltimore’s reputation is known for stopping the run, Murray’s style is one that could create plenty of problems when trying to tackle an elusive runner such as himself.

Nate Burleson WR Lions

Last game played: 5 catches, 51 yards

Burleson has had a better year than most anticipated in what thought to be Titus Young’s year to take over the slot. The veteran wideout hasn’t let him take his position just yet and doesn’t seem likely at all anymore.  With much emphasis going to be focusing on how the Eagles defense can stop Calvin Johnson, Burleson will be reaping the rewards with short slants in zone coverage.

Fantasy Preview: Thursday Night Football

Posted by Fantasy_101 on October 11, 2012 – 8:41 am

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

Ben Roethlisberger, QB, Steelers

Last Week: 209 yards, TD

Roethlisberger should have a big game against the Titans’ 25th ranked pass defense after his worst performance of the season at Lincoln Financial Field.  Mike Wallace, who only had two catches for 17 yards in week 5, and Antonio Brown, who only has one touchdown on the year, will try to exploit one of the thinnest secondaries in the league.  Throwing in the factor of a few days rest, Pittsburgh’s speedy receivers should have a productive night in Nashville.

Kendall Wright, WR, Titans

Last Week: 9 catches, 66 yards

Wright seems to be getting more involved in the Titans’ offensive game plan each week after coming off both season and career highs with nine receptions and 66 yards.  The question that remains to be answered is if Chris Johnson can start breaking tackles and getting the run game going against the 11th ranked run defense in Pittsburgh.  Polamalu will more than likely miss yet another game, forcing the Steelers secondary to play without one of the best to ever do it. It only gives Wright a better probability of catching a deep score.

Rashard Mendenhall, RB, Steelers

Last Week: 101 yards total, TD

Mendenhall proved last week in Philadelphia that there looks to be no signs of any setbacks as he rushed for 81 yards on only 14 carries.  With the Titans’ rush defense being ranked towards the bottom of the league at 28th, the Steelers running back should be back to his normal production after missing the first four games of the year due to an injured knee.

Week 5 Fantasy Football Grades

Posted by Fantasy_101 on October 9, 2012 – 12:01 pm

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

STARTERS

Jeremy Kerley, WR, Jets

Last Week: 5 catches, 94 yards

Kerley seemed to be one of the few high points in the Jets offense Monday night.  Sanchez was letting it fly down the field to number 11 all night.  Although he didn’t score a touchdown or surpass the 100-yard barrier, this performance was very encouraging and enough to give Kerley another earned start when the Indianapolis Colts travel to MetLife stadium.

Arrow: Up

Willis McGahee, RB, Broncos

Last Week: 102 yards total offense, 5 catches

McGahee didn’t have his best outing of the year in Gillette Stadium, but when you surpass the century mark and you’re not a quarterback, then that’s an impressive feat to achieve any week.  No scores and a late fumble didn’t help owners but kept them grounded with an above average total yardage and an additional five snags.

Arrow: Up

Matt Hasselbeck, QB, Titans

Last Week: 200 yards passing, 1 TD, 2 carries for 10 yards

Hasselbeck had more points this week than names such as Ben Roethlisberger, Cam Newton and Joe Flacco.  Though he didn’t throw for 300 yards or multiple scores, the Titans veteran Quarterback showed he still has value as a starter for certain weeks or at least viable back-up when he is regular playing.  With Jake Locker injury still to be of major concern and with the Titans playing the Steelers in an early Thursday Night game, Hasselbeck to most knowledge will get the start this week at the very least.

Arrow: Up

Jacob Tamme, TE, Broncos

Last Week: 6 catches, 54 yards

Tamme was effective compared to the last few weeks he has been involved with in the Broncos offense.  He was targeted a few times in the red-zone even, but failed to connect with Manning.  In another instance Tamme was wide open down the right sideline but failed to chase the ball down. Meanwhile, backup tight end Joel Dressen found the goal line for the third straight week.

Arrow: Neutral

Pierre Garcon, WR, Redskins

Last Week 3 catches, 24 yards

Garcon was affected when starting quarterback Robert Griffin III went down in the third quarter with a knock to the head leading to his concussion and departure of the game.  Fellow Rookie and 2nd string quarterback, Kirk Cousins threw a 77 yard strike to veteran Santana Moss in the 4th quarter, who finished with 81 yards off of two catches. Garcon’s injury seems to be lingering and nagging.

Fantasy Primer: Week 5

Posted by Fantasy_101 on October 5, 2012 – 12:22 pm

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

Start ‘em

Willis McGahee Den RB

Last Week: 19 carries, 112 yards, TD

McGahee takes on a New England Patriots defense that has been solid against the run all year averaging 85.3 yards against, 8th overall. But the Patriots have yet to face a quarterback of the caliber of Peyton Manning, who will attempt to open up the offense off of play action pass and a plethora of half-back draws, that should reward McGahee nicely this weekend in Foxboro.

Jeremy Kerley NYJ WR

Last Week : 2 catches, 12 yards

Excluding last week, Kerley has 8 catches, 185 yards and two touchdowns.  WIth the loss of Santonio Holmes out for the season, Sanchez will depend on the second year man from TCU in a big way come this Monday, as his role in the Jets offense more than likely has expanded    .

Matt Hasselbeck Ten QB

Last Week: 193 passing yards, 2 TD’s, 3 turnovers

It’s always a tough spot coming off the bench against possibly the
best defense in the league (Houston Texans) and try to perform at a high level.  This week Hasselbeck has the ability to show Tennessee what they passed on in the beginning of the season, when they decided to go with 2nd year Quarterback Jake Locker as their starter and not the 14 year vet. Time will tell.

Week 4 Fantasy Football Grades

Posted by Fantasy_101 on October 2, 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.

Starters

Scott Chandler, TE, Bills

Last week: 4 catches, 62 yards, 2 Touchdowns

Chandler had a monster game vs. New England Patriots, scoring twice on passes from respectively twenty-four and twenty yards out.  He lead all tight ends in scoring and is tied (H.Miller and V.Davis) for the league in touchdown passes for tight ends with four.  Some other players you may have heard of with less scores than Chandler, Rob Gronkowski (3), Jimmy Graham (3), Witten (1) and Antonio Gates (0).

Arrow: Up

Mikel Leshoure, RB, Lions

Last week: 13 carries, 26 yards; 4 catches, 37 yards

Leshoure did not have the best of his young fantasy days this past week vs. Minnesota Vikings defense that ranks 7th in the league against the run.  Leading up till the weekend hit, Leshoure appeared as if he was going to play well, after a stellar break out game last week (26 carries, 100 yards, TD).  Once the weekend hit, his status was of major concern.  He did make up for his sub par performance by hauling in four grabs for thirty-seven yards. With Leshoure barely being able to move out there, a much needed bye week is upcoming for a banged up (1-3) Detroit Lions team.

Arrow: Neutral

Tashard Choice, RB, Bills

Last week: 2 carries, 14 yards, 1 catch

Choice didn’t get the opportunity to start, that was thought he would get earlier in the week. Bills starting running backs Fred Jackson and C.J. Spiller made miraculous comebacks to start the game, from what was once anticipated to be more severe injuries, leading them to sit out at least another week or two.  Now that both Spiller and Jackson are back healthy, Choice seems to be irrelevant yet once again in his short lived career in the realm that is fantasy football.

Arrow: Neutral

Fantasy Primer: Week 4

Posted by Fantasy_101 on September 29, 2012 – 10:46 am

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

Start

Mikel Leshoure, RB, Lions

Last Week: 26 carries, 100 yards, TD

Leshoure got the opportunity to carry the rushing load last week and he didn’t disappoint.  This week he will face a Vikings defense that ranks12th vs. run, but with Matthew Stafford possibly sidelined for the week, back-up quarterback Shaun Hill will depend on Leshoure to help open up the passing game.  Anywhere from 17-20 carries will be plenty enough for the Lions running back to make a significant impact this weekend.

Tashard Choice, RB, Bills

Last Week: Browns: 20 carries, 91 yards

Choice is expected to get the majority of the carries in Buffalo this week with both C.J. Spiller and Fred Jackson recovering from injuries. Choice is a 5th year back-up running back who is trying to prove something.  He finally gets his opportunity this week at home vs. rival New England Patriots.  With a potential job on the line, Choice is a must start.

Devery Henderson, WR, Saints

Last Week: 4 catches, 53 Yards

After missing a week from injury, Henderson was installed back in the Saints line-up last weekend and looked sharp.  The only problem that Henderson faces is his teammates, as Drew Brees is renown for spreading the wealth around.  Last year in Green Bay, Henderson caught 6 passes for 100 yards, including 29-yard touchdown in the 42-34 shootout. With the potential of the Saints being 0-4 or the Packers starting 1-3, both Brees and Rodgers should be at their very best.

Robert Meachem, WR, Chargers

Last Week: 4 catches, 43 yards

Meachem has had an abysmal start to his career in San Diego. Having caught 2 passes for 49 yards in the opener and then laying a goose egg in week 2.  The newly acquainted Charger has been struggling to find his role in the offense so far.  Rivers and Meachem ought to discover the chemistry vs. Chiefs secondary that ranks 22nd vs. opposing wide receivers.

Scott Chandler, TE, Bills

Last Week: 2 catches, 22 yards

Chandler started the season off by scoring two touchdowns in the first two weeks of the season.  He has established himself as the second red-zone target in the passing game behind Steve Johnson.  With a lousy week 3 showing, Chandler has the chance to find the goal line yet again as he did a year ago ( 2 catches, 10 yards, TD) vs. Patriots (24th ranked vs. pass) in Buffalo.

Top Defense: Cardinals Defense

Last Week vs. Eagles: 5 sacks, 3 FF, 1 TD

Cardinals defense has been a surprise thus far in the 2012 season, as well as being one of just three teams remaining that are undefeated. This success can most be attributed to the Cardinals defense presenting havoc on opposing quarterbacks. With twelve sacks and five forced fumbles in three games played, Arizona will go as far as their defense will take them.

Bench

Chris Johnson, RB, Titans

Last Week: 14 carries, 24 yards

Needless to say Chris Johnson is not the same CJ2K we all use to know. With only 45 yards rushing on the entire season from 33 rushes is beyond miserable.  Facing what most believe to be the very best defense in the league, Johnson should struggle yet again continuing his streak for being one of the biggest two year busts in fantasy history.

Jay Cutler, QB, Bears

Last Week: 183 passing yards, INT

Cutler’s been a fantasy nightmare as of late.  In his past two games combined he has a total of five interceptions, no touchdowns and 309 passing yards.  In week 1, 333 passing yards and 2 touchdowns, interception vs. Colts.  Which Cutler will show up Monday when the Bears face the 2nd ranked defense vs. pass in Dallas is the looming question that remains.

Packers Defense

Last Week vs. Seahawks: 14 points allowed, 1 sack

Packers defense had a strong outing in arguably one of if not the most controversial games called of all-time.  Green Bay faces a tough task this week as they will play the 0-3 New Orleans Saints.  Brees will be eager to win as he ever has in a regular season game, when they take on the 1-2 Green Bay Packers Sunday.  This has shoot-out potential written all over it.

Santonio Holmes, WR, Jets

Last Week: 9 catches, 147 yards

Holmes has been productive all year as of late.  In week 1, four catches and  68 yards.  In week 2, three catches for 28 yards and a touchdown.  This week Holmes faces one of the toughest secondaries in the game, San Francisco.  8th against the run and 13th vs. pass, the Niners defense is bound to cause problems for any number one receiver they face, week in and week out.

Greg Olsen, TE, Panthers

Last Week: 7 catches, 98 yards vs. Giants

Most of Olsen’s seven grabs he had from last Thursday nights game was in garbage time, as the Giants dominated from start to finish.  The Falcons linebacking core has done a tremendous job of stopping the opponents starting tight end each week ( Falcons rank 7th vs. pass).  Their most recent victim, holding stud tight-end Antonio Gates to three receptions for twenty-two yards last week.  This game will be a lot closer than the last one the Panthers played.  Carolina will be forced to run a lot more in order to slow down one of the most balanced offensive attacks in football.
