Week 13 – Arizona Cardinals Fantasy Forecast

Arizona Cardinals 9-2 at Atlanta Falcons 4-7     Play ‘Em If You Got ‘Em   Andre Ellington - #11 Ranked Running Back The Cardinals have had a hard time getting their running game going, but don’t lose hope. Ellington is facing the terrible Atlanta rush defense. He should have a very, very nice game.   John Brown - #41 Ranked Wide Receiver With Fitzgerald hurt and Floyd being Mr. Unreliable, John Brown is now the only guy for Stanton to rely on. Brown makes some amazing catches. On three receptions he had 61 yards last week. Some say he is a sleeper but I think he is just a good play.   Gut Calls   Michael Floyd - #46 Ranked Wide Receiver Only start Floyd if you need to. I would usually bench him because he zeroed out but Atlanta gives up the 6th most fantasy points to Wide Receivers. Before he zeroed out he had 17 fantasy points, but before that he had a total of 4.7 fantasy points in three games.   Bench Warmers   John Carlson - NA Atlanta gives up the 6th fewest fantasy points to Tight Ends. He isn’t worth a start even against an easier matchup. The Cardinals don’t use their Tight Ends at all....

Week 13 – Cincinnati Bengals Fantasy Forecast

Cincinnati Bengals 7-3-1 at Tampa Bay Buccaneers 2-9   Play ‘Em If You Got ‘Em   A.J Green - #3 Ranked Wide Receiver Green had 16 targets last week. That is crazy. He caught 12 of them for 121 yards. There is no question that he is the main guy for Cincinnati. Play him every week.   Mohammed Sanu - #25 Ranked Wide Receiver As long as Sanu is seeing 7 targets a game you should continue to start him. He kind of relies on getting in the end zone at this point but the Bucs give up the 4th most fantasy points to Wide Receivers so he should continue to see around 10 fantasy points.   Gut Calls   Giovani Bernard #20 Ranked and Jeremy Hill #17 Ranked Running Back I will start that if you have both I would play Hill over Bernard. Hill has shown that he is more productive then Bernard and Bernard is still hurt. If they can share the ball like they did last week, both are descent plays. Tampa Bay gives up the 11th most fantasy points to Running Backs. This should be a high scoring game.   Bench Warmers   Andy Dalton - #15 Ranked Quarterback Only start him in a two Quarterback league. He throws too many interceptions and is very inconsistent....

Week 8 – New England Patriots Fantasy Forecast

Chicago Bears 3-4 at New England Patriots 5-2   Week 8 – New England Patriots Fantasy Forecast     Play ‘Em If You Got ‘Em   Tom Brady – 11th Ranked QB Congrats Brady on another game over 20 fantasy points. He had 261 yards passing and 3 touchdowns with no interceptions. If his receivers could catch the ball, that game wouldn’t have been so close. Brady should have another good game with Chicago giving up the 10th most fantasy points to Quarterbacks and Brady appears to be in a groove.   Rob Gronkowski – 3rd Ranked TE Gronkowski had his 2nd game in a row without a touchdown. I think this week he will break that streak and have a touchdown and 70 yards. Bold prediction but if anyone can do it coming off a game with only 68 yards it is Gronk.   Shane Vereen – 16th Ranked RB Belichick did not screw Vereen’s fantasy owners last week. That is the biggest surprise of Week 7. Vereen rushed for 43 yards and had 71 yards receiving with 2 touchdowns. Hopefully Belichick will continue to use him so we can feel good when we put him in our lineups. This week the Patriots will need to spread the ball around to keep the defense confused. Vereen will be a Must Start for PPR leagues and a RB2 or flex for others.   Stephen Gostkowski – 1st Ranked K Last week he only got you 9 fantasy points. He remains the number one Kicker in fantasy points. Chicago gives up the 2nd most fantasy points to Kickers. Must Start every week.   Gut Calls...

Week 8 – Minnesota Vikings Fantasy Forecast

Minnesota Vikings 2-5 at Tampa Bay Buccaneers 1-5   Week 8 – Minnesota Vikings Fantasy Forecast     Play ‘Em If You Got ‘Em   Jerick McKinnon – 15th Ranked RB McKinnon got back on track last week rushing for over 100 yards. He is out touching the ball and out performing the other backs including Asiata. This week he goes up against Tampa Bay that give up the 4th most fantasy points to Running Backs. McKinnon could have his best game this season in Week 8 so don’t miss your chance to play him.   Blair Walsh – 13th Ranked K Although the Vikings lost, Walsh scored more points then the entire offense. As long as they get the ball down the field Walsh can do the rest. This might be the game of the field goals.   Minnesota Defense – 7th Ranked DEF If you play a different defense every week then I hope you picked up the Vikings Defense. Last week they got 15 fantasy points against the Bills. This week should be another great week since Tampa Bay gives up the 4th most fantasy points to Defenses.   Gut Calls   Cordarrelle Patterson – 51st Ranked WR Well congrats to Patterson for his 1st touchdown on the season. Don’t get too excited, he still is Mr. Under 6 Points. With the touchdown, Patterson only had 2 receptions for 9 yards. I would have benched him but the Vikings are playing the Buccaneers and they give up the most fantasy points to Wide Receivers. This one hurts.   Greg Jennings – 58th Ranked WR Jennings although older then Patterson seems...

Week 7 – Oakland Raiders Fantasy Forecast

Arizona Cardinals 4-1 at Oakland Raiders   Week 7 – Oakland Raiders Fantasy Forecast     Play ‘Em If You Got ‘Em No Must Starts yet but the Raiders are starting to prove themselves for fantasy rosters.     Gut Calls   James Jones – 38th Ranked WR and Andre Holmes – 49th Ranked WR The Cardinals can’t stop receivers. Holmes had 24 fantasy points last week and 13.4 the week before that. Jones had 11.6 points last week and has been the more consistent receiver. Even Brice Butler got his hands on the ball 3 times for 64 yards and a touchdown and this was all against the Chargers who have a good secondary. I really like them this week and say pick them up and play them as your WR3 or flex.     Bench Warmers   Darren McFadden – 33rd Ranked RB McFadden has only one game over 10 fantasy points. Arizona gives up the 3rd fewest fantasy points to Running Backs. Not a good equation for an older back.   Derek Carr – 20th Ranked QB Ok Carr blew up and I think it is because he heard me and felt like he had something to prove. We still have him ranked 20th and although Arizona has given up the 7th most fantasy points to Quarterbacks, Carr is still a little to unreliable.   Mychal Rivera – 38th Ranked TE He is really bad and he is lucky enough that we even ranked him....

Week 7 – Indianapolis Colts Fantasy Forecast

Cincinnati Bengals 3-1-1 at Indianapolis Colts 4-2   Week 7 – Indianapolis Colts Fantasy Forecast     Play ‘Em If You Got ‘Em   Andrew Luck - 1st Ranked QB It doesn’t matter what the matchup is, you are starting Luck every week.   T.Y. Hilton – 16th Ranked WR 9 targets, 9 receptions, 223 yards and a touchdown. He would have had two touchdowns but the defender barely touched him. Record game. Do not expect those numbers this week against the Bengals that give up the 6th fewest fantasy points to Wide Receivers. 110 yards or 65 and a touchdown sounds about right for Hilton.   Reggie Wayne – 15th Ranked WR Wayne could really benefit from Hilton having a huge game last week. The defenders will be focused on him and Bradshaw and Wayne can make his move.   Ahmad Bradshaw – 18th Ranked RB Bradshaw can do it all. If you look at his rushing yards alone then you would bench him. It is his receiving that makes him a Must Start against an ok Bengals rush defense. He had another week in double-digits even with sharing the ball with Richardson.   Dwayne Allen – 7th Ranked TE and Coby Fleener – 13th Ranked TE Cincinnati Bengals give up the most points to Tight Ends and there are two of them. This is good for both of them. They both have had good games and they can both have a good game in the same game.   Adam Vinatieri – 7th Ranked K   Gut Calls   Trent Richardson – 28th Ranked RB Richardson had a touchdown! Yay!! He is a flex player...
