FantasySavvy 2012: Week 10, Fantasy Five

By: Kevin Lewis 

New York Jets @ Seattle Seahawks

-If you’re desperate for a bye week QB, I’d give Russell Wilson a look. The Jets defense hasn’t been particularly good this year and Wilson’s mobility will give the Jets trouble because their linebackers are painfully slow. If you are in NEED of a QB this week, Wilson may not be a bad play.

Jeremy Kerley will be a decent WR2/Flex play this week. While I do think Kerley is a solid player, it’s less about him and more about the disarray of the Jets offense. Someone has to move the ball. The Jets won’t be able to run the ball and Stephen Hill and Chaz Schillens scare exactly nobody. Start Kerley with confidence, even against Seattle’s secondary.

-Start Dustin Keller. (see: Why you should start Kerley). And also, he has a rapport with Sanchez.

-Keep an eye on Golden Tate. He seems to be coming around with Wilson. I’m not necessarily putting this here for this week, but generally.

Dallas Cowboys @ Philadelphia Eagles

-Sit Michael Vick. If you have any inkling on starting him this week, don’t do it. Dallas has a lot of problems but their pass defense is their biggest strength. And Philly’s offensive line is a trainwreck.

-Sit Jeremy Maclin. Any potential return isn’t worth the risk at this point.

-Don’t even bother starting any of Dallas’ running backs unless you are desperate.

-Philadelphia’s pass defense isn’t good. Tony Romo has had two decent weeks in a row fantasy wise. I think he follows it with a third. Start him comfortably.

New York Giants @ Cincinnati Bengals

Hakeem Nicks will play Sunday but bench him. If you have a better alternative go with it. Although the Cincinnati Bengals pass defense isn’t anything to write home about, Eli is in a funk and Nicks hasn’t done much all year anyway. If you have a decent alternative go with it.

-If you haven’t already dropped Andrew Hawkins, go ahead and do it.

Andy Dalton is a pretty safe start against a spotty Giants secondary. I’d start him confidently this week.

New Orleans @ Atlanta

-There will be a lot of points in this game. We know about the QBs most definitely. As far as the WRs, I’d start Lance Moore in PPR formats. He’ll get a few looks as New Orleans will likely be putting it in the air a lot.

– Darren Sproles is OUT again so I’d go ahead and give the nod to Chris Ivory. Ingram leaves a lot to be desired and Ivory is always productive when he’s on the field and getting carries. A 13 carry for 62 yard and a TD performance isn’t out of the question. Pierre Thomas is worth a look as well.

Miami @ Tennessee

-Miami’s pass defense just yielded 430 yards to Indianapolis last week. While the Titans do not have a young promising QB like Andrew Luck, I’d start Kenny Britt anyway. He was pretty productive against a much better defense last week and I think he’s due for a monster week. This is more “hunch” than anything but start Britt.

-If you need a bye week QB, Ryan Tannehill might be a good choice. Tennessee’s pass defense isn’t good, and Tannehill is having a solid rookie campaign.

-If you’re in need of a bye week flex/WR, start Davone Bess in PPR formats. Tennessee’s secondary isn’t very good and Bess could get you 6-7 grabs. Also have to throw Brian Hartline in your starting lineups.

You won’t see the obvious names on here, that would be pointless. Maybe occasionally to give you a reminder, but rather we are looking to identify some guys that you may be on the fence with and encourage you to either start or sit them. Matchups will be broken down, stats will be used, some projections will be provided and some “gut” feeling will be mixed in. But when it comes down to the come down, it’s your “gut” you need to roll with.

*Players listed in order of projected effectiveness in the start ‘em category and ineffectiveness in the sit ‘em category.

Quarterbacks

Start ‘Em

Phillip Rivers @ Tampa Bay

Rivers will get it done against Tampa Bay; this secondary has been horrendous all year and Rivers has the experience and tools to succeed against them. Rivers will step up for your fantasy squads.

Josh Freeman vs San Diego

I doubted Freeman this season, but he has proved me wrong with 11 TD’s in his last four games and overall has had a successful season. Freeman should stay hot against San Diego who are just average against Fantasy QB’s ranked 15th in points allowed to QB’s.

Joe Flacco vs Oakland

After early excitement with Flacco and the Ravens no huddle offense, Flacco is now playing like the QB most of us thought he was. With no multiple TD games in his last five games it’s hard to trust the guy. But Oakland presents a favorable matchup as they are ranked 23rd in points allowed to QB’s. Look for Flacco to finally get a two TD game and approach 300 yards passing.

Sit ‘Em

Sam Bradford @ San Francisco

Don’t even think about starting Bradford this week, even in two QB leagues.

Michael Vick vs Dallas

After failing to really produce against New Orleans it is almost impossible to trust Michael Vick from here on in. Vick hasn’t played well, but his offensive line needs to take a lot of the blame, they have been atrocious. Every week he is getting crushed play after play. With Dallas and their top secondary coming to town, don’t even think about putting Vick in your lineups.

Matt Schaub @ Chicago

Chicago is 2nd best in points allowed to Fantasy QB’s and will no doubt frustrate the Texans passing game. Keep Schaub reserved.

Running Backs

Start ‘Em

Michael Turner @ New Orleans

You know the drill, start any and all fantasy players against the Saints Defense. Turner excels in good matchups so expect him to score at least once in this game.

Willis McGahee @ Carolina

McGahee and the Broncos arguably have the most favorable schedule of any team in the weeks ahead. He didn’t come through last week in a solid matchup but you have to keep putting him out there because more times than not he will prosper in these types of matchups. Carolina has been 6th worst in points allowed to Fantasy RB’s.

Vick Ballard @ Jacksonville 

The Jags are allowing the 4th most points to Fantasy RB’s and got torched last week by Mikel LeShoure and Joique BellDonald Brown is most likely OUT for tonight’s game so Ballard will get a ton of burn. Great spot to start him.

Sit ‘Em

Steven Jackson @ San Francisco

You trade this guy yet? You know my feelings on this dude.

Shonn Greene @ Seattle

The Seahawks Run D has been vulnerable the last three weeks, but as a Jets fan I don’t trust Shonn Greene in these types of matchups. I foresee a 16 carry 50-yard scoreless game from Greene.

Jamaal Charles @ Pittsburgh

This is so hard for me to put Charles in this spot, this is my favorite player in the NFL. I will be starting him, because I don’t have better options, but if you have the luxury, think about it. The Steelers are giving up 2nd fewest points to Fantasy Backs and the Chiefs passing game and Defense have been killing Charles’ value. They are constantly playing from behind and Charles just doesn’t get enough chances to contribute. The coaching staff has also completely misused him. It’s really frustrating. Hopefully he proves me wrong this week and runs all over Pittsburgh.

Wide Receivers 

Start ‘Em

Torrey Smith vs Oakland

As Joe Flacco should get it going, look for Torrey Smith to get it flowing as well. Smith hasn’t played up to many owners expectations, but he should return provide a nice return of investment going against the Raiders and their average defense.

Brian Hartline vs Tennessee 

After a few quiet weeks from his 243-yard explosion, Hartline had himself another solid game against the Colts catching eight balls for 107 yards. The Titans are ranked 23rd in points allowed to Fantasy WR’s so Hartline has a great chance to succeed in this matchup.

Malcom Floyd @ Tampa Bay

Floyd has just two TD’s all season, but this is a spot you have to think about plugging him in. The Bucs secondary has been brutal giving up the 3rd most points to Fantasy WR’s and Rivers will be chucking. Look for Floyd to have a productive game.

Sit ‘Em

Jeremy Maclin vs Dallas

Maclin has been a disappointment all season, mostly due to Vick’s inability and the Eagles porous offensive line and he will continue the struggles this week against Dallas.

DeSean Jackson vs Dallas

Just like Maclin you can’t trust Jackson this week either. Dallas is giving up the 6th fewest points to Fantasy WR’s andMo Clairborne and Brandon Carr are one of the better CB tandems in the league.

Sidney Rice vs New York Jets

Just a bad matchup for the Seattle Seahawks and Sidney Rice against the Jets who are allowing the fewest points to Fantasy WR’s despite the loss of Darelle Revis. Antonio Cromartie has played better than I have ever seen him and has been routinely giving #1 WR’s fits.

Tight Ends

Start ‘Em

Vernon Davis vs St. Louis

Davis has been stagnant in his last two games with just five catches for 60 yards but should get it going against the Rams the week. St. Louis is giving up the 8th most points to Fantasy Tight Ends and the 49ers know they need to start finding more creative ways to get this stud the ball.

Brandon Myers @ Baltimore

Carson Palmer’s Brother, Oakland Raiders

Myers broke out with two TD’s last week prompting many owners to snatch him from the waiver wire this week. Myers had been fairly steady with 4 to 5 catches and around 40-50 yards every week until finally getting his first two TD’s of the year. Myers kind of looks like Carson Palmer’s fatter older brother maybe that is why Palmer has targeted him 23 times in his last three games.  Keep Myers in lineups against Baltimore who can’t defend Tight Ends, ranked 22nd overall.

Dwayne Allen @ Jacksonville

The Jags have been pretty good against Tight Ends ranked 4th best, but I like Allen’s talent and the fact that Coby Fleener is out for another week. Look for Luck to target Allen a good amount in this game and for Allen to finish with around 50-70 yards receiving. I will take that from a Tight End not named GronkowskiGates or Graham.

Sit ‘Em

Kyle Rudolph vs Detroit

Rudolph has been ice cold since a hot start, so keep him reserved until he proves he can produce again.

Scott Chandler @ New England

If Chandler doesn’t score he doesn’t produce. This is another guy that you really can’t trust. Stay away.

Brent Celek vs Dallas

As noted, the Eagles offense has been a huge disappointment. Celek is no exception. Dallas is 7th best at defending Tight Ends so you need to keep Celek reserved.

IDP’s

Start ‘Em

Aldon Smith vs St. Louis

Smith has been heating up in his last few games and now has 7.5 sacks on the year. The Rams are allowing the 7th most sacks and are giving up the 8th most points to Fantasy DE’s, so this is a juicy matchup for Smith.

Ed Reed vs Oakland

With Carson Palmer and his pass chucking, turnover prone ways coming to town, you need to get Reed in your lineups. I always envision a Reed pick six versus a QB like this.

Sit ‘Em

Greg Hardy vs Denver 

Peyton Manning has been the 2nd least sacked QB this year, mostly because of his doing. Therefore there will be limited sack opportunities for Hardy and this Carolina pass rush.

Jarius Byrd vs New England

Byrd is averaging just 3 tackles a game this season, but does have three interceptions. However, going against Brady and Gronkowski his interception opportunities will be limited. Keep him benched.
