G’day mates. We have reached week 16 hopefully still intact. I had a good run of luck last weekend and won 2 of the 3 Razzball FanDuel Leagues, while Nick D won the other, congrats! This week we have two 10 team leagues with the regular $45 prize to the winner and one 20 team league with the prizes for 1st: $50, 2nd $30 and 3rd $20. So join up and see if you can take me down and kick me in the ribs. Why would you do such a thing?
With only a few teams left in my draft and trade leagues, I’m even more active in FanDuel, so if you want to take me on in a one on one game I’ll make a game and give you the link. And, here are this week’s leagues — League 1, League 2, and the 20 Team League.
Here are my initial thoughts on a team. These are usually tweaked throughout the week, but the core stays fairly constant —
Michael Vick: You just can’t deny the guy (unless you sell puppies). He has 8 rushing touchdowns and 20 passing touchdowns in just 10 games and is averaging around 330 yards rushing/passing per game. That’s a bunch. Minnesota will have trouble with him just like every other team.
Ray Rice: The Browns started the season pretty well against the run, but they are losing defenders left and right and Rice is playing well. I also like that the Browns are giving up over 60 yards receiving to running backs for the last half of the season. Mr. Rice knows all about catching the ball.
Darren McFadden: He is getting vultured at the goal line, but I have been so impressed with his speed, agility, and more importantly, his ability to run through tacklers. I don’t see the Colts being able to contain him.
DeSean Jackson: Even in a down game DJax returns a punt for a walk off touchdown. He is the Boo Boo to Vick’s Yogi, the Rocky to his Bullwinkle, the Scooby to his Shaggy.
Wes Welker: He had been on a tear until he ran into Woodson and the Packers stout pass defense. The Bills have a good pass defense, but Brady won’t want another down game and I think the Bills will be able to pass on the Pats and should keep Brady throwing.
Mike Williams: This game pits Buc Williams and Hawk Williams against each other and there is a chance this could cause a worm hole to develop on the 20 yard line. Be careful if you are in Tampa Bay on Sunday. The Seahawks pass defense is hot garbage (why would garbage be hot?) and Williams should have plenty of opportunities.
Zach Miller: I hate that Jason Campbell is as accurate as a drunk baby trying to hit a urinal cake, but Miller is healthy again and fairly cheap in FanDuel. He was on the verge of a big game last week and I think Campbell will need to pass quite a bit in this game.
Shayne Graham: He’s been accumulating decent points lately and Buffalo likes to give up field goals and he is pretty cheap.
