Each week I’ll be participating in FanDuel.com’s Fantasy Football Championship league
, which is open to everyone. You get to set a different line-up each week, so I’m going to post it here. We get 60,000 to spend on a team. Here is the team I came up with.
QB Jay Cutler (CHI v DET) — 8,900 — You know my love for Jay even though I’m pretty sure he’s a prick. This is Detroit we are talking about. And their offense should be better, which should mean Cutler need to throw even more. Yeah, I’d pick Manning or whoever if I could, but Cutler saves me a little cash and he has a great matchup.
RB Tim Hightower (ARI @ STL) — 5,200 — News is not good for our man Beanie. If he does play at all against the Rams it will be just a few snaps. I doubt he’ll be out there. Hightower should get a full workload and they get the poor Rams defense.
RB Jamaal Charles (KC v SD) — 7,800 — JC is the only RB on here for his price that I think could go completely insane, running backly that is. The Chargers are not the best run defense in the league. I think JC will have his coming out party on Monday Night Football.
WR Calvin Johnson (DET @ CHI) — 7,000 — Megatron kills the Bears and now he has Best and Burleson to take some of the heat off.
WR Andre Johnson (HOU v IND) — 7,500 — Dre is the man and Houston probably won’t be trying to sit on a lead by running the ball.
WR Johnny Knox (CHI v DET) — 5, 500 — I can’t see Knox not getting a TD in this game. He is the best receiver in a pass first offense.
TE Jermichael Finley (GB @ PHI) — 6,100 — Philly was the second worst defense against TEs fantasy points-wise (and that’s all we really care about).
K Connor Barth (TB v CLE) — 5,000 — It’s a cheap kicker.
D San Francisco 49ers (SF @ SEA) — 6,500 — Loving them against the Hass and his O-line. It will be tough for any Seahawk to do much Sunday.
