Don't be shellfish...Tweet about this on TwitterShare on FacebookShare on Google+Share on Reddit

As my wife always said after peeing on a First Response and then finally getting visited by Aunt Flo the next day, better late than never right?  Sorry to all who’re expecting this yesterday.  I had what you could call a hard New Years.  Hard alcohol, hard on my liver, hard to walk upright the next day, hard to not throw up…the list of everything that was hard about it would be borderline exhaustive so instead I’ll just say I hope I didn’t fail you.  For those of you looking for rest of playoff rankings, I’ll be frantically working on those over the course of today, though there may not be an actual post on them.  Let’s just say, work really sucks.  They expect me to actually do what they want me to do and not you…how rude!  You can still find me and my rankings over at the Fantasy Pros guys whom I use.  For those of you looking for the weekly thang, though, I show how I’m leaning down below.  When you’re only ranking this many guys, having a ‘standout’ is more like disagreeing on two or three rankings spots so again, I’m stuck talking about the Red Rocket, Andy Dalton.  As the Vikings proved in week 16, Dalton can take advantage of a porous secondary especially when he’s at home.  Dalton has a 20:9 TD to INT ratio at home and a 13:11 on the road so against the Chargers – the 9th worst for fantasy points against to opposing QBs this year – I don’t see how the dingy gingy can’t be a dandy one this weekend.  So with that in mind, I do have Marvin Jones slipping into my top 10 as he had a 6/85 during that same week 16.  And yes, I put Foles one and Brees three.  Remember what I said about Dalton’s splits?  Yeah, go look at Drew away from the dome.  It’s definitely not the D-Brees we all think of.  But I’m delaying the inevitable around here.  Let’s get to week one of this great new season.  Here’s the wildcard round of the weekly rankings for the 2013 Fantasy Football season…

      You start the players you think who’ll be on a losing team this week. That way you give yourself options later on.

    Who do you see advancing this week?

    Hey Sky, thanks for all your great stuff throughout the year. You’ve helped me get one championship and now I’m looking to add the playoffs on top of it.

    The only place I’m going to question (if that even is the right word) your rankings is at WR. Obviously, I’m going with AJ at WR1 but I feel like WR2 is much more of a toss up. I originally had Crabtree because I trust him more than Boldin and feel like he is going up against the friendlier defense.

    Should I change that spot to Nelson or Jackson or are they all pretty much a grab bag? (Sorry I can’t trust Colston after killing me all year)

      They’re their teams’ top targets. I’d call them a toss up to that extent. I do like Crabtree, just don’t think SF throws a huge amount in this particular game because they won’t need to. He’ll have a healthy line but I’m not picturing a shootout like week 1 was.

      Oh and thanks for the kind words! Busy like mad today at work, I’m meat and potato’ing the comments :)

    Best defense?

      For? I ranked them above, not sure I understand the question.

  5. SMLV1 says:

    Weird. All the rankings are above but defense for me. Can you do me a favor and tell me who you have as No. 1?

      Sky says:

      Weird. I’ll see if it’s something on their side but I see what you’re saying. I have Cincy. Hopefully this is a quick fix!

    Thanks man. Great advice all year! Was leaning Cinci as well.

      Yeah, at home the Bengals are just a different team on so many levels.

    Does the cold weather affect your WR rankings of Nelson or Crabtree?

      Temp doesn’t usually play a factor. Blizzards and extreme winds do. Don’t think it’ll play a large factor.

    Leaning towards Flexing Lacy, any concerns with his health?

    • Sky

      Sky says:

      His numbers were pretty puny against a really bad defense last week but it’s the playoffs. He’ll give it his all.
