“All Things Fantasy” (10-1-12)

October 2, 2012

This is the Monday October 1st, 2012 edition of “All Things Fantasy”. I talked about players you should pickup, some elite talents, players you should trade for/away, and more. My notes from the show are attached below. (these are notes so sorry for grammatical errors)

“All Things Fantasy”

Real Deal or overrated?

Julio Jones- He has had 1 awesome game (6 catches, 108 Yds, 2 TD). 1 solid game ( 5 catches, 67 Yds, 1 TD) and two abissmal games ( 14 yds, and 30 yds). Next 2 Games are against WSH and OAK. The same thing happened to him last year were he had so solid games then some dud gmaes.

Chris Johnson- Finally this guy did something he had 141 rushing yards on 25 carries against one of the best defenses in the league in the Houston Texans. First game with more than 14 rushes. The fact that Locker got hurt is a huge deal for Chris Johnson.

Ryan Mathews-its starting to look murkier for this RB. First off, Jackie Battle outproduced, and out touched….. Mathews had 14 carries for 61 yards and 2 rec for 21 yards while MR. Jackie Battle had 15 carries for 39 yds and TD and 4 receptions for 40 yards and a TD.

Guys im trading away-

Doug Martin- the promising rookie weekend started the season off solid by rushing for 95 yards in week 1 and 66 yards and a TD in week 2. He has since then trailed off abit by only rushing for 53 yards in week 3 and  a measly 33 rushes on 8 attempts yesterday. Also, Legarette Blount got the TD yesterday. While I still think he will be ok this season if you can seel him now then go ahead and do it.

Andre Johnson-  ohh the very consistent inconsistent play of Dre J, Has had 2 solid weeks and 2 crappy weeks and 1 of those good weeks he only had 2 catches for 72 yards and a TD. Week 1 he had 8 catches for 119 yards, week 2 3 catches 21 yards, week 3 2 catches 72 yards and a TD, Sunday he had 3 catches for 56 yards.

Steven Jackson, heres his rushing yards by week, 53, 58, 29, 55

Greg Jennings- Reaggraveted his groin. Sell Him if you still can

Ryan Williams- Don’t believe he can handle a full work load, Did nothing yesterday, this team could start throwing the ball more and more each game

Guys Im trading for-

Mathew Stafford- It can only get better  right? Well gets a buy week to figure everything out. Hasn’t had more than 1 passing TD in any week this season, but has thrown for over 300 yards this season twice.

Jordy Nelson- Will be a top 10 WR when all is said and done.

Donald Brown- has been ok this season. But he just had a his bye week and does face Green Bay next week but then faces NYJ, Cle, & TEN the weeks after that. Think he could be a lock for 8-10 fantasy points a week which is nothing special but could be a great bye week fill in and or solid #2 rb going forward. He can also be had for very little.

Lesean McCoy- Will finish as a top 5 RB, don’t worry about the bad start

Darren Mcfadden- He is tough to deal with but I still believe  Run DMC

 

Pickups

James Jones- Talked about him a lot more on the show, but basically could be a great pickup with Greg Jennings out

Rashard Mendenhall- should return from his injury this week, the Steelers run game has been dreadful.

Joique Bell- this for PPR leagues, had 6 catches for 72 yards on Sunday, 4 catches 44 yards, week before, and 2 catches for 59 yards in week 2.

Andre Roberts- this guy had a great game  on Sunday 6, rec, 118 yards, 2 TDS to bring his total to 4 TDs on the season. That was his first game of over 100 yards, but he has had some games earlier this season. With the RB situation not good

Greg Olsen- had a disappointing first 2 weeks but has been on fire the past 2 weeks, last week he had 7 rec s for 98 yards (14 Targets), yesterday he had 6 catches for 89 yards and a TD.

Brian Hartline- ummm wow, this guy had 12 receptions for 253 yard and 1 TDs. Let me say that again. Question is was it a fluke and while he isn’t getting 253 yards again he 19 targets yesterday. Now he has had some up and down games. His down games were against  the Jets and Texans and he still managed 8 and 9 targets in those games. His other good game was against Oak were he hed 9 catches ( on 12 targets) for 111 yards. Next week gets Cincy

Ryan Fitzpatrick- Leads the NFL in Passing TDs, Enough said.

“All Things Fantasy” (9-19-12)

September 21, 2012

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”

Start/Sit

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.
