This week with my knowledge and plethora of free time I am going to predict which players will win you games by playing above expectations and which players will win you games by sitting them. Stud @ QB
Trent Edwards @ Mia
Miami comes into the game with the no. 3 ranked run defense which means that Fred Jackson and Marshawn Lynch will likely be stuffed early and often. Edwards has a great trio of receivers in Terrel Owens, Lee Evans, and Josh Reed. Edwards is a guy you can likely get off the wire and will be a solid bye week replacement.
prediction: 250 yards passing 2 TD's, 1 int
other candidates: Shaun Hill SF,
Dud @ QB
Brett Farve vs. Green Bay
Brett is going up against possibly the premiere corner back tandom in the NFL in Charles Woodson and Al Harris and Brett has the tendency to force passes (shocker i know hes the career INT leader and its not even close). In this big of a game Green Bay is going to be getting a heavy dose of Adrian Peterson with a little Chester Taylor mixed in. Dont start Farve this week there are too many other productive QB's. 150 yards 1 TD 3 INT's
Stud @ Runningback
Thomas Jones @ NO
This game is going to be all about ball control for the Jets and trying to keep the prolific Saints offense off the field. Jones should be in line for a solid game with 100 yards and 1 TD 2 rec 18 yards
other candidates: Reggie Bush NO, Donald Brown Ind., Cadillac Williams
Dud @ Runningback
Julius Jones @ IND
Julius has been one of the biggest fantasy surprises this year but due to a lack of respect for the Seattle passing game and Indianapolis going ahead early Seattle will not be able to run effectively.
prediction: 55 yards 0 TD 5 rec 37 yards
other candidates: Steven Jackson Stl.,
Stud @ receiver
Drew Bennett vs. Det
With Hester and Knox receiving all the attention for there speed, Bennett has emerged as Cutlers go to man on third downs. Bennett has a strong roper with cutler and sees plenty of passes thrown his way.
prediction 6 rec 75 yards 1 TD
other candidates: Mike Wallace Pit, Lee Evans Buf, Kelley Washington Bal
Dud @ Receiver
Marques Colston vs NYJ
The Jets thrive on putting pressure on the Qb which will limit the number of deep balls thrown his way, that and the fact hes going to have one of the leagues best corners in Darelle Revis locked on him all game long.
prediction 3 rec 32 yards.
other candidates: Percy Harvin MIn,
Stud @ TE
Jeremy Shockey vs. NYJ
With all the pressure the Jets are going to put on Drew Brees, Shockey will likely be the saftey valve and hot read on many plays. The Jets love to bring more than the line can block but that leaves them vulnerable in the middle.
7 rec. 83 yards 1 TD
Dud @ TE
Todd Heap @ NE
Heap has had a solid year so far but NE loves to take away TE's. Flacco will have to look to other receivers this week because NE will not let Heap beat them.
prediction 2 rec 16 yards
