Congrats to uppower and scollum for winning their leagues and 45 cash dollars. This week there are some nice matchups, so my teams may have quite a bit of diversity, but here is my first shot at a team. Take me on in any of these leagues — League 1, League 2, and League 3. If you are new to FanDuel and sign up through this link you’ll get some bonus cash, FYI.
QB Jon Kitna: The Lions pass defense isn’t Houston bad, but it’s still not great and Kitna to Dez Bryant is starting to heat up. Do you remember Randy Moss’ rookie year? Dez has that ability and Kitna is locking in on him. It might lead to some interceptions, but it will also lead to TDs and they offset interceptions by a lot. Kitna of this week is my Garrard of last week.
RB Peyton Hillis: The dude is bad ass. He also gets the Jags who are near the bottom in most rush D categories. He is pretty much the Browns whole offense and I don’t see him not scoring this week.
RB Frank Gore: The Buccaneers are an elitely horrible run defense. They give up 5.1 yards per carry and 133.6 yards per game, which is 1 and 2 on the craptastic scale. Gore is the most targeted running back in the league and hardly comes off the field. The matchup is just too good to pass on.
WR Santonio Holmes: It really doesn’t matter who is going against Houston, they will pass and pass well and Holmes is now the #1 receiver. They give up an average of 27 fantasy points to wide receivers and Holmes should get a big chunk of that.
WR Pierre Garcon: I feel very good about Peyton Manning having a good game in New England and Garcon has been in a bit of a slump which has lowered his FanDuel price and primed him for a good game.
WR Calvin Johnson: Megatron is Megatron and the Dallas pass defense is megacrappy. This game should be a shootout.
TE Dustin Keller: Houston has given up the most yards and the second most touchdowns to tight ends. Keller should get back on track this week.
K Billy Cundiff: A kicker.
