“All Things Fantasy” (9-19-12)

This is the Wednesday September 19th, 2012 edition of “All Things Fantasy” . Isaac Stock joined me in studio to talk about trades. Also, I talk about how you should use your waiver wire priority, players to trade for/away, pickups to make, some underrated players for this upcoming week, and more. Here are some notes from the show. Also, I give some solid plays for weekly fantasy lineups (IE. Dailyjoust.com or Fanduel.com)

“All Things Fantasy”


Adrian Peterson vs the 49ers- SIT

Darren Mcfadden vs the Steelers- Sit, only if you have a solid option to replace him

Michael Bush vs the Rams- START

Jamaal Charles/ Peyton Hillis vs NO- Both should be starts, Charles could easily exceed 100 yards and Hillis will probably get at least 1 TD

Donald Brown vs the Jags. The Jags have been one of the worst rushing defenses in the league. I like Brown a lot this week.

Eric Decker vs the Texans- Sit, Texans have been the best defense against the pass. ( granted, it has been against some brutal pass teams in Dolphins & Jags). want to see him produce a solid game before I would start him. Don’t sell low on him Decker.

What to do??

Chris Johnson- Sell- even if he has good week, I don’t trust him going forward. He plays Houston, Minny, and Pitt after this week. All 3 are solid run defenses.

Jamaal Charles- He should be a great start this week against the Saints who rank close to last in the NFL in run defense. However, if Charles struggles this week then I would start to be very concerned.

Cam Newton- Had him before last nights game, and seems like the league has adjusted to him, but Cam hasn’t made the adjustments to the league. This is starting to look like a down season for Cam, but he should still get some points in rushing yards which will still make a solid Fantasy QB.

Aaron Rodgers- He is going to struggle again this week against a solid Defense in the Seattle Seahawks ( never thought I would say solid defense and Seahawks in the same sentence). He won’t have Greg Jennings either. Don’t sell him and try to buy him after this week.

Larry Fitzgerald- He should not be starting until we see him produce. If you can trade him and still get value for him then go ahead and do it. Don’t sell him for nothing though.

My Starts of the Week

QB- Ryan Fitzpatrick vs the Browns- Andy Dalton threw for 3 TDs and over 300 yards last week against them. Even though Fitzpatrick hasn’t thrown for over 200 yards yet. He has thrown 5 TDS in his first 2 games which is actually tied with Matt Ryan for the most so far this season.

Andre Brown RB, NYG-  Look like Ahmad Bradshaw is out which means Brown will become the starter on Thursday for the Giants. He had 13 rushes for 71 yards and a TD last week taking over for Bradshaw. That was with ELI throwing the ball in the 2nd half. Think Brown could have a big week, but this is also a chance for David Wilson to play to.

Donald Brown- Brown has 182 yards on 28 carries (6.5 yards per carry) in two home games versus the Jaguars.  The Jags have actually been really good agains the pass this season so I think this will be a close game and both teams will run the ball a lot. BTW Brown has as many points as DMC and more than guys like Steven Jackson and Michael Turner.

WR Brandon Lafel- LaFell was targeted on 42 percent of Cam Newton’s pass attempts in Week 2, earning twice as many targets (eight) as Steve Smith (four). Has Double Digit fantasy points in his first 2 games. The Giants CBs are terrible. Look for Lafell to have a huge game. (that was a bad call)

WR- Lance Moore- had a great week 1 and struggled week 2, Now the Saints face the Chiefs who have been blown out in 2 str8 games. Moore could be the number WR for the Saints if Colston can’t play. Look for Moore to repeat his week 1 Numbers.

TE- Owen Daniels- Has been consistent so far and the Texans face a solid Broncos Defense. Look for Daniels to get a lot of catches. ( Tony G had 7 catches for 70 yards and a TD.
