“All Things Fantasy” (9-5-12)

This is the Wednesday September 5th, 2012 edition of  “All Things Fantasy”. I give some start/sit advice, give a run down of each game for week 1 and give what to watch for fantasy in each of those games, and answer some questions that were sent to me. Below are my notes from the show.

“All Things Fantasy”

Matt Forte- This he will have a great year, but he is one of those guys that scoring format determines his worth. In a PPR league he is a lot more valuable than in a standard league. Forte doesn’t score a lot of touchdowns

Michael Burner Turner- Think he will do a lot better than people think. Will be a consistent fantasy contributor. Solid #2 RB

Desean Jackson/ Jeremy Maclin- Jackson could have a really good year, he doesn’t catch a lot of passes, but has had almost 1000 receiving yards in every year of his career. Maclin is a great possession type of receiver and could have a huge year. Both of these guys value matter on Vick’s health and that can be kind of scary.

Danny Amendola/ Sam Bradford- Amendola is going to be a great PPR option this year. Could easily get 80 to 90 receptions and his touchdowns will rise. He has a great chemistry with Bradford. Amendola could find himself in the top 20 of WRs in PPR formats. Bradford could be a great #2 QB. He can run some and this is his third year in the league. Look for him to really come into his own this year and look like solid NFL QB.

Steve Smith (Car)- Just produces solid numbers like 1000 yards receiving and 6 to 7 touchdowns. With Newton around, he has a chance to grab some extra TDs, but the passing yards won’t increase much.

Ahmad Bradshaw- We saw last night he is going to be the GUY for the Giants. As long as he is on the field he is going to produce great numbers.

Ben Roethlisberger- Has weapons all around him to have a great year. Plus, the Steelers run game is going to struggle so look for Big Ben to have big year. This could be his best Fantasy season he has ever had.

Shonne Green- Won’t do anything spectacular, but will end up being a consistent fantasy asset. I could see him getting 12 to 14 fantasy points most weeks.

Larry Fitzgerald- Is by far the 2nd best receiver skill wise in the NFL, but that doesn’t translate to fantasy numbers. I think he will finish as top 5 WR, but the QB situation hinders his value.


My Start/Sit I am debating between this week. Listen to the podcast to get the full reason why I made each decision

Standard scoring-Jake Cutler/ Jake Locker- Locker

PPR- Donald Brown/ Toby Gerhart/ BJGE- need 2 out of the 3, going D. Brown and Gerhart.

.5 PPR-Nate Wash/ T-Rich/ D. Brown- Going Nate Washington

Ryan Fitzpatrick/ Andrew Luck- Going Luck

Ahmad Bradshaw/ DeAngello- Chose Bradshaw


Players I have issues with

Mike Williams TB- Think he will have a great bounce back year. He such a great value considering where he is being drafted.

Reggie Wayne- See Mike Williams. Wayne has the skills and now has a QB that can throw the pigskin

Darren Sproles- At best he performs as well as he did last year. There are so many Running backs in New Orleans and they want Mark Ingram perform. I just don’t see him being a reliable fantasy option this year.

Isaac Redman- Doesn’t have the skills to be a #1 RB in the NFL. Think he will lose a lot of PT when Mendenhall is healthy and Jonathon Dwyer will be their main back when the pass.
