Fantasy Football Over and Under Achievers

New, comments

 

Hello Fantasy Football Fans,

Here is the next installment of what will be a weekly rundown on who I think will over or under perform their weekly rankings from ESPN. So if you have a guy who is possibly injured and not 100% take a look at the lower ranked guys I think will do well and move them into your lineup. But if I mention a top player like Peterson it will be tough to have a guy who can even produce 50% of his output so as always take these thoughts and make the best decision. Last week was pretty rough with a 6-9 in the Underachievers and 4-5 in the Overachievers. Let’s get to the rankings;

Overachievers

Andy Dalton (22)-He has been solid and plays an awful Jaguar secondary

Mark Sanchez (12)-He gets to the Pats and with Holmes calling him out, I think he steps up on the road.

Eli Manning (10)-He is playing like a top QB1, Seattle is awful on the road, and this will get ugly.

Brandon Jacobs-(28)-I expect at least 1 TD.

Isaac Redman (24)-He will get all the snaps for Pitt and we should see a Ryan Matthews like game.

Jacoby Jones (27)-He should step in nicely for Andre Johnson with a solid game.

Aaron Hernandez (23)-He has practiced fully, get him back in your lineup.

Jared Cook (14)-He may be the #1 target with Britt out.

Underachievers

Matt Stafford (2)-The big deficits have helped his stats, I say the Bears pass defense slows down the Lions train.

Michael Turner (10)-The way to beat GB is through the air.

Frank Gore (12)-He had a nice 2nd half against the awful Eagle run defense, back to the grind.

Darren Sproles (15)-Yes he is involved but his scoring still has to be lucky.

Joseph Addai (18)-He has not shown to be a starting fantasy back.

Shonn Greene (23)-He has been awful, and the Pats are awful against the pass not withstanding what Rexy said he will do with the run this week.

Ben Tate (35)-Foster is now getting all the touches.

Knowshon Moreno (40)-He should be cut by fantasy owners; Lance Ball is getting more touches.

Wes Welker (2)-Yes you have to start him but Revis brings him back to earth and mortality.

Vincent Jackson (4)-He has barely practiced all week, a very shaky start.

Vernon Davis (4)- He has barely made a dent this year, don’t expect that to change against the tough Bucs.

Make sure you check your byes as the 1st group of 6 teams are off this week. That is it for this week; we will be back early next week for the weekly free agent pickups and feel free to follow me on Twitter-dvond for any fantasy questions.
