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. Last week we went 10-3 in the Overachievers and 9-4 for underachievers. Let’s get to the rankings:
Matt Moore (18)- He has been a top 5 fantasy QB the past 4 weeks, I would rather him than Philip Rivers right now as an example.
Josh Freeman (13)-You have to start any offensive players against the Panthers defense.
Pierre Thomas (35)-Even with Suh the Lions had one of the worst defenses against RB’s
Donald Brown (32)-With the Colts expecting to be trailing he should get 15-20 touches.
C.J. Spiller (28)-The Titans defense is up and down, I think he can finally show the talent he displayed in college.
Johnny Knox (47)-He has had 100 yards and a TD in each of his last 2 games.
Nate Burleson (40)-In what should be a shootout he will get plenty of targets.
Reggie Wayne (33)-Another game they will be trailing and with the Patriots defense, he is a must start no matter who the QB is.
Lance Moore (32)-He is a favorite of Drew Brees around the end zone.
Antonio Brown (24)- He is in the top 10 in the NFL in the past 6 weeks.
Matt Ryan (10)- He is on the road against a top 5 defense and probably no Julio Jones.
Mark Sanchez (14)- Another QB on the road vs a scrappy Redskins defense.
Michael Turner (11)-He has not practiced all week, if you have to win this week, tough chance to take.
Willis McGahee (15)-I can see Minnesota selling out against the run and making Tebow throw the ball.
Steven Jackson (19)- He is playing the best run defense in the NFL with an awful OL.
Brandon Jacobs (29)- He is running in quicksand and is unstartable at this time, while Bradshaw may play.
Larry Fitzgerald (5)- With Kolb coming back, he will be very rusty while Dallas gives him his proper respect.
Vincent Jackson (16)-Philip Rivers has ruined him.
Dwayne Bowe (19)- Tyler Palko has not yet thrown a td, another receiver who is ruined by his awful QB.
Sorry for the short list but there is so many decent offensive players playing bad defenses should be a high scoring week.
