Big Week for Fantasy Footballer’s everywhere. Most leagues are determining who will be playing in the Fantasy championship. The bragging rights that come with it are awesome. Especially if you are in a work league like I am. So Good Luck to all this weekend I hope you all win.
Josh Freeman v.s NO – To me he is a top 8 QB option for this week. He is on fire against the Saints, 1004 yards and 7 TD’s in his 3 last games. The Saints defense hasn’t gotten any better over the last few weeks either. Only the top Tier of QB’s I would start ahead of him this week.
CJ Spiller v.s Sea – Prior to the last game against the Cardinals. The Seahawks defense had been torched back to back weeks on the ground. Look for Spiller to make it happen again, he should be getting a majority of the carries with Jackson out. I look for him to have a huge game this weekend.
Jamaal Charles v.s Oak – Charles has a string of 3 consecutive 100 yard games. The Oakland defense has a given up 100+ yards in 6 out of its last 7 games. Last time around Oakland shut him down, but was limited to 5 carries. This time around they are going to feed him the ball.
Reggie Bush v.s Jax – Bush accounted for over hundred total yards last week against the 49ers. This week he has a better matchup in the Jaguars. Who have given up over 100 yards on the ground in the last 6 games. I think he is a sage RB2/Flex play for this week.
Josh Gordon v.s Was – Gordon last week 12 targets, 8 catches for 86 yards. This week he gets a horrendous Washington Secondary. This could be a huge week for him. Must start in all leagues.
Tony Scheffler v.s Ari – With Pettigrew status not looking good for this week. Scheffler is a really nice play this week. He had 10 targets and a TD last week. Stafford likes his TE’s for sure, I think he becomes a top 10 play if Pettigrew is out this week.
Colin Kaepernick v.s NE – Had a very impressive 50 yards touchdown run last week. Kaepernick could be a very fun QB to watch out for in 2013. But this is not the week to start him with so much one the line. Belichick will be very prepared for him and I think he will limit him this week.
Nick Foles v.s Cin – Basing off his last start against the Bucs you would think he is a must start. Well folks you couldn’t be more wrong. The Bucs are just terrible against the pass this year. The Bengals are coming to town Thursday night. They have held all QB’s minus Peyton under 14 Fantasy Points on the season. So I wouldn’t recommend him being in the lineup this week.
Stevan Ridley v.s SF – This is going to be a slugfest on Sunday Night Football. Ridley is trying to make it 7 straight games with a TD. Against a team that rarely gives up touchdowns on the ground. I don’t see him reaching the end zone. So he should be on the bench this week.
Michael Turner v.s TB – The Bucs are among the very worst against the pass. But they are amongst the top 10 against the Run. He had only 17 yards rushing against them in week 12. But he did have a touchdown in the game. But this week, like Ridley he’s scoring streak comes to an end.
Brandon Myers v.s KC – Myers coming off a disappointing game against the Broncos. I don’t think he is going to fare much better this week against the Chiefs. They held him to 3 catches for 49 yards in their first meeting. I look for around the same numbers this week. Better options can be had this week.
Torrey Smith/Anquan Boldin v.s Den – It’s hard to judge who will draw Champ Bailey this week. But the Broncos give up the 9th fewest points to WR’s this year. With plenty of WR options out there I don’t see why these guys should be in the lineup come Sunday.
Those are my week 15 start/sits, any Fantasy Football Questions you can ask on here or on twitter. (@rickygangster) I’ll answer any and all questions you send leading up to game time.
