Week 8 RB Rankings

Photo By: Matt Stamey / US PRESSWIRE Perhaps The Buccaneers only used Doug Martin for 16 carries because they are playing a Thursday night game this week. Then again, if we chart his past three games the coaching staff had only called his number 13 times and 8 times in his previous two performance before Sunday. Time will tell us what the Buccaneers think the ideal workload for Martin really is, but I have ...

Week 8 Flex Rankings

Photo By: Kevin Hoffman / US PRESSWIRE Running back depth continues to look grim with lack luster play and mounting injuries to even some of the elite talents like Trent Richardson and Maurice Jones-Drew. As a result, for the fist time ever I have seven wide receivers listed in the top ten in my flex play rankings. What is even more interesting is the three top running backs listed are Jamaal Charles, Adria ...

Week 8 QB Rankings

Photo By: Icon SMI It's been a long bye week for the Eagles but I actually like Michael Vick's odds of putting up QB1 numbers against the Falcons. About a month ago we watched a struggling Cam Newton go into Atlanta and rush the football nine times for 86 yards and a score. It would be wise for the Eagles to lean on the running game, but we know they will look to push the football vertically and Vick will g ...

Week 8 TE Rankings

Photo By: Brad Penner / US PRESSWIRE If you're in need of a bye week pickup at the tight end position it might be a good idea to target Jacob Tamme or Martellus Bennett. Tamme is fresh off a bye week and will be in a shootout of a game as the Saints come to Denver. Bennett on the other hand, will face his former team for the second time this season. The first time around Bennett scored a touchdown which was ...

Week 8 Team Defense Rankings

Photo By: Dennis Wierzbicki / US PRESSWIRE Cam Newton and company don't seem to be happy about what's going on in Carolina's offense, and while I'm on their side, we have to be a little concerned about Newton's attitude throughout the season. Newton had success in Chicago last year, but that was early in the season and teams have clearly caught up to what the Panthers are doing on offense. We should see Chi ...

Week 8 K Rankings

Photo By: Christopher Hanewinckel / US PRESSWIRE Those fantasy owners who picked up Nick Novak a few weeks back can breathe a sigh of relief as usual starter Nate Kaeding has been placed on injured reserve. For the second season in a row, Kaeding has had a lower leg issue that has cost him a majority of the season and Novak has been there to fill in. The Chargers have had some wild games of late but look fo ...

Just So Fresh And So Clean – Why A.J. Green Is The Man

OutKast had it right when they put down the words, "ain't nobody dope as me I'm just so fresh and clean." That is exactly what I think of when A.J. Green comes to mind. We heard big talk from Cleveland's top corner back Joe Haden last week, tell the fans he was sorry for his four-week suspension and was ready to play again. Unfortunately Haden was matched up against perhaps the leagues top receiver in secon ...

FF Brainwave Report – 10/20

Photo By: Icon SMI Terrell Suggs Active There was talk about Suggs playing this week but it was hard to give it any real consideration until the Ravens activated him. It looks like we may see Suggs in this game, but I still find it hard to believe he will actually get on the field. If he does we shouldn't expect him to be in on run downs, but rather predictable passing situations. If the Ravens fail to stop ...

Week 7 IDP – DL Rankings

Photo By: Jason O. Watson / US PRESSWIRE Both Jeremy Mincey and Matt Shaughnessy have terrific matchups as the Jaguars and Raiders face off in Oakland this week. Both have had their ups and downs in their careers but we should put them in the lineup this week. When playing, Shaughnessy has proven to be a DL1 option and we should expect that production going forward. Mincey on the other hand, had a disappoin ...

Week 7 IDP – DB Rankings

Photo By: The Star Ledger / US PRESSWIRE As was the case for Kam Chacellor last week, a matchup against the Patriots is a good thing for safeties as New England runs up to 90 plays a game. Weather the Patriots go with the pass or run we should see both Yeremiah Bell and LaRon Landry give us at least DB2 performances and we shouldn't be surprised if both have DB1 numbers, this week. I like Landry as the bett ...
