Happy Thanksgiving everyone. Personally, it's my favorite holiday with its dedication to eating...and drinking, and none of the retail madness that comes with the next round of big holidays.
It also means a spate of football games, the NFL's gift to ease awkward conversation with family members. Yay! In my haste to eating, I usually forget to set my lineup, inevitably leaving the week's biggest performer on the bench. Not today. I'm setting my lineup, so you should to...AND to help you, here's a little guidance concerning players from the St. Louis Rams.
As a starting point, I used the week 11 projections for players at CBSSports.com.
#22 - Sam Bradford, QB: Bradford hasn't put up the kind of numbers that can save your weekly score from poor outings elsewhere on you roster, but he has been consistent enough to count on in most weeks. In the TST league, his last four weeks, he's scored 15, 19, 17 and 20 points respectively. Denver's secondary is banged up to the point they can't run the nickel package. That could be big for Bradford, IF the Rams can overcome their road troubles.
Steven Jackson and more below the jump.
#12 - Steven Jackson, RB: Always capable of putting up big points, but the Rams' perplexing decisions with the run will most certainly frustrate you, as a fan and fantasy GM. The good news is that Denver's defense is a very favorable matchup for the Rams offense. If they do it right, this could be a big week for SJ39. He's due.
#30 - Danny Amendola, WR: Until last week, Amendola had a TD in three consecutive games. It's a safe bet that the Rams will score at least one receiving TD, and Danny Amendola's a good bet. At the very least, he's good for at least 4 catches.
#48 - Brandon Gibson, WR: Gibson might be a nice under-the-radar pick if you need a WR this week. I have to say, he's really starting to put things together, becoming a reliable target for Bradford.
#43 - Michael Hoomanawanui, TE: Uh Oh had 4 catches and a TD last week. He's shown great hands and an ability to give the Rams a solid option in the passing game, often lining up at FB. Denver allows an average of almost 60 yards per week to tight ends and almost 6 receptions.
#32 - Daniel Fells, TE: Fells' receptions are declining at the same time Hoomanawanui's are rising. He has 3 catches in his last two games for 22 yards.
That's a run down of the fantasy options from the Rams. Set your lineups, stuff your face, and check in on the open thread we'll have for today's games.
