Here we go again. Last week was an embarrassment as Michael Vick was injured and Chris Johnson and Cedric Benson were shut down. Our man Danimal took home the 45 cash dollars last week in our Razzball League. You can enter this week’s league here.
My team this week is my favorite of all time, but maybe that’s good, because when I think I’ll do well that is the kiss of death.
RB Steven Jackson STL @ DET — He wasn’t even on the injury report after last week’s game, so his groin sack must have held up. Detroit is just not a good defense yet, especially against running backs.
RB Frank Gore SF v PHI — Philly hasn’t been good against running backs and Alex Smith has become the Frank Gore check down bot. Even if Gore can’t get into the end zone his total yards should exceed 100.
WR Mark Clayton STL @ DET — Back to the Detroit well. Clayton isn’t that great, but he sure gets a ton of targets, and against Detroit, targets equal yummy fantasy cupcakes.
WR Marques Colston NO @ ARI — After spending a lot of money on my QB and RBs I needed to skimp a little on WRs. Colston, for his price is a nice buy low candidate. With the amount of targets he is getting a TD is on its way. Hopefully this week.
TE Zach Miller OAK v SD — San Diego doesn’t like to cover tight ends and Miller is on a roll.
D Carolina Panthers CAR v CHI — Todd Collins is starting in the place of Jay Cutler. This might not mean a ton of turnovers, but the Bears aren’t going to go on a scoring spree. The Bears are also a good choice here with Clausen and Steve Smith out, and they cost the same. I’m still deciding!
