The Sports Script NFL DuDs for Week 11

We’ve notched another Sunday of NFL action in the books for our fantasy football season! I have to throw in a quick pat on the back to Ricky, Matty, and myself as if you listened to the radio show this Sunday morning we gave some nice picks! That being said there are still the DuDs out there and let’s take a look right now at who those players are for week 11.

André Ellington (@Dre_23LilBit) 8 carries 3 yards 2 catches 10 yards – Well so much for the hype around André Ellington in the Cardinals backfield as élite. He went from averaging 7.2 yards per carry to like .7 in this game. The Jags are terrible and if you can’t have decent games against them then no one should ever trust you in a lineup! I know several people were all over this guys for a big week and got a big letdown from him.

Reggie Bush (@ReggieBush) 12 carries 31 yards 3 catches 48 yards – Bush has been so good this year, that even this okay game  is a DuD right now for him. I’m not mad at him as a season owner because he’s carried me, but as a daily owner I’m furious. This was a terrible let down for people who paid up the high price for Bush this week, but after the fumble he had the Lions just kind of gave up on him. Bush will rebound, so don’t give up!

Danny Woodhead (@danny__woodhead) 5 carries 21 yards 2 catches 16 yards – This is more like the stat line I would have expected from a guy like Woodhead, but he’s set the bar way to high for these type of performances. Woodhead you’ve got to do better for us fantasy owners as you’ve set the bar higher for yourself. I expect the next week for you to pay all fantasy owners with a couple touchdowns. Okay?

Jimmy Graham (@TheJimmyGraham) 6 catches 41 yards – Hey Jimmy did you forget where the end zone is? This is the second straight DuD for a guy of his caliber. He’s banged up a little, but as always in my column if you are playing then you are letting owners down if you aren’t producing. Jimmy will figure it out and get out of this column, but until then he’s put up a DuD this week.


Geno Smith  8 for 23 103 yards 3 interceptions – I don’t know why anyone would start him, but just in case they did!

Lamar Miller 4 carries 17 yards 2 catches 20 yards – Did you expect more from him?

Permanent DuDs

This is a new section where I will put people who seem to be showing up weekly. They will simply earn their way out by having a good game. The guys you see featured here will not have a discussion, because if I put them here at this point I don’t even want to talk about that guy.

Trent Richardson

CJ Spiller

Week 11 Fantasy Football Must Start/Must Sit

Week 10 is in the books and we are in the fast track to the Fantasy Playoffs which is kind of sad considering that means the NFL/Fantasy season is almost over. Week 10 was good to me for the most part but the Bernard/Bell combo surprised me taking advantage of a tough matchup. Week 11 will be great but before we jump into that let’s see how I did in week 10.

Starts that made me look good

Russell Wilson – 307 total yards and 2 TDs
Robert Griffin III – 325 total yards and 3 TDs
Maurice Jones-Drew – 74 total yards and a TD
TY Hilton – 7 catches 130 yards
Antonio Gates – 4 catches 62 yards
Arizona Cardinals D – 21 points/3 sacks/1 TO/1 TD

Starts that made me look bad

Fred Jackson – 62 total yards
Keenan Allen – 4 catches 41 yards

Sits that made me look good

Matt Ryan – 172 yards and 1 TD
Jason Witten – 2 catches for 27 yards
Larry Fitzgerald – 3 catches 23 yards
Anquan Boldin – 3 catches 23 yards

Sits that made me look bad

Gio Bernard – 95 total yards and a TD
Le’Veon Bell – 96 total yards and a TD
Green Bay Packers D – 27 points given up

Week 10 Fantasy Football Must Start (Bye weeks: Cowboys and Rams)

Case Keenum vs. Oakland Raiders

Keenum has been so impressive over the last few weeks (7 TDs/0 INTS over 3 weeks) and has been in each game this year. He is defintley fighting for at least a look at the starting QB job for 2014 but we are talking about now. Keenum has one of the better matchups against the Raiders this week who have given up an average of 265 yards and 2 TDs to opposing QBs this year. The Raiders just aren’t very good on defense and Keenum will show just that on Sunday.

Russell Wilson vs. Minnesota Vikings

Wilson has been on fire as of late throwing 10 total TD over the past 4 weeks and right now he sits in the top 5 of all Fantasy QBs this year (Yeah didn’t see that one coming). He has been so good and now he is getting his shiny new toy Percy Harvin in the mix, he is going to be great throughout the Fantasy playoffs. This week he faces the Vikings who are just terrible against the pass and I expect him to finish in the top 5 this week.

Danny Woodhead vs. Miami Dolphins

The Dolphins have given up 20 or more points in 3 straight games which include 5 rushing TDs. Woodhead leads all RBs with 53 catches this season and has been used on 3rd down situations for the Chargers. If you own him in PPR he is a must start every week and this week I would start him in any league.

Alshon Jeffery vs. Baltimore Ravens

Jeffery is becoming a solid WR2 since week 4 and he provided a 9 catch 114 yard performance against the Lions last week. The Ravens are going to shift a lot of their focus on Brandon Marshall and that will bode well for Jeffery this week. He needs to start this week and for the rest of the season.

Pierre Garcon vs. Philadelphia Eagles

Garcon is 6th in the league in receiving yards with 803 and has posted back to back 100+ yard performances. Garcon is the #1 target in Washington and faces an Eagles D that has a secondary that is easily exposed.

Antonio Gates vs. Miami Dolphins

The tight end position has been pretty bad this year and Gates has surprised me in his ability to be Fantasy relevant again. This is pure gut here with the Dolphins having shut down their last 5 opponents TEs. I would go with Gates regardless this week.

Kansas City Chiefs Defense vs. Denver Broncos

The Chiefs D has carried Fantasy teams across the board and don’t think they should stay away because Peyton Manning is coming to town. I would start them this week especially with Peyton’s ankles not 100% and the Chiefs can get to the QB. They will force Manning to make mistakes and I am a firm believer in starting them this week.

Week 10 Fantasy Football Must Sit

Andrew Luck vs. Tennessee Titans

I feel like this matchup will go one of two ways for Luck, he will bounce back and destroy the Titans after a miserable performance against the Rams or he will go out and face a tough Tennessee Titans Pass D and have a mediocre performance. I am going for part #2, the Titans have given up 1 passing TD in the last 5 weeks and that’s impressive considering they have faced Alex Smith, Colin Kaepernick and Russell Wilson in that time frame. Luck will struggle and you should only start if you have no better options.

Tom Brady vs. Carolina Panthers

So last time I had him on this list he went out and torched the Steelers for 432 yards and 4 TDs. So factor in that and he is coming off a bye and the Patriots are so good after bye weeks but this time he faces a Carolina Panthers team that has been very good over the past 5 weeks. They are on a 5 game win streak and opposing QBs are having a hard time against them averaging only 7 Fantasy Points per game. Brady could prove me wrong and I wouldn’t be surprised if guys like Keenam, Glennon and even Tannehill have a better week.

Fred Jackson/CJ Spiller vs. New York Jets

It doesn’t get much better than the New York Jets run defense, they have yet to allow over 100 yards to anyone this season and have held opposing Fantasy RBs to single digit point totals in 3 out of the last 4 games. Jackson has been good this year but hasn’t found the endzone in the last 2 weeks and Spiller still isn’t 100% and hasn’t been great this year. Neither guy is worth a look this week.

Maurice Jones-Drew vs. Arizona Cardinals

Jones-Drew has posted solid numbers in 3 out of his last 4 outings but is facing a Cardinal run D that has given up 77 yards rushing in the last two games. This is going to be a low scoring slugfest and MJD should be planted on the bench.

Cecil Shorts vs. Arizona Cardinals

Shorts is only catching 53% of his targets this season and unless you are using him in PPR formats has been pretty bad in standard leagues. He should draw Patrick Peterson this weekend and that is not good news for Shorts owners. Bench Shorts and even drop him in shallow leagues.

Steve Smith vs. New England Patriots

Steve Smith will see Aqib Talib on Monday Night and that isn’t good news for him. Smith hasn’t found the endzone since week 7 and has yet to reach 100 yards receiving this year. Not a good week to have him in the lineup.

Garrett Graham vs. Oakland Raiders

Graham has been a huge disappointment since the injury to Owen Daniels. The Raiders have been pretty good against TEs this year and Graham is just not rosterable anymore. Find other options.

New York Giants D vs. Green Bay Packers

This is enticing matchup for the Giants this week as they have scored a defensive TD in 4 straight games. But Scott Tolzien is coming to town!!!!!! Okay that was kind of a joke. Green Bay didn’t look that bad last week with Tolzien at the helm and a full week of practice I can see them scoring some points and not making the turnovers needed to start the Giants. Don’t fall for the trap and leave them on the bench.

Week 11 Fantasy Football Sleepers

Week 10 is in the books for Fantasy Football and what a week it was. Drew Brees, Pierre Thomas and Demaryius Thomas were among the leading group for the week. We also saw Tavon Austin and Mark Ingram have coming out parties this week. Injures have been tough for 1st round running backs this year as we have seen Ray Rice battling injures and being healthy, Doug Martin finally put on the IR and news over the weekend is that Arian Foster is next man on the list. You never know when you are going to have to step up and replace a top player, so it’s always good to be good at the wire. Before I dig into week 11 sleepers I take a look back on how I did in week 10.

Sleepers that I hit

Pierre Thomas – 111 total yards and 2 TDs – He was on fire as was the rest of the Saints RBs but Thomas provided much need spark for Fantasy owners.
Golden Tate – 6 catches/106 yards/ 1 TD – He can only get better once Harvin is back in the mix.
Riley Cooper – 3 catches/102 yards/2 TDs – So 5 TDs in two games, WOW.
New York Giants D – 20 points/ 4 sacks/ 1 TD – That’s three straight solid performances for this D and next up Scott Tolzien and the reeling Packers.

Don’t Forget to Check out as we are partnering up this week to give one lucky person that signs up for the site this week a special Sports Script prize pack. All you have to do is make a deposit and send us proof that you signed up to enter.

Sleepers I whiffed on

Jake Locker – He got taken out of the game but didn’t look great while he was in there.
Eli Manning – 140 yards/1 TD/ 1 INT – Mediocre game for the Mediocre QB.
Garrett Graham – 2 catches 18 yards – Had a great matchup this week and just didn’t do anything with it. This guy is droppable in all formats.

Mike James and Timothy Wright play tonight.

Week 11 Fantasy Football Sleepers (bye week: Rams and Cowboys)

Mike Glennon vs. Atlanta Falcons

(Prior to tonight’s Monday Night Football Game)

Glennon has looked really good as of late throwing for 5 TDs and 0 INTs over the past 3 games. In his last outing against the Falcons he threw for 256 yards and 2 TDs and the Falcons haven’t gotten any better on the defensive side of the ball. Glennon is a nice sleeper if you have Romo on a bye this week.

Scott Tolzien vs. New York Giants

I know this is crazy and we have very small sample size from the guy to even consider having to start him. But I am in a 2QB league where I have to start Kellen Clemens the past two weeks. Tolzien looked good enough to get the nod from McCarthy after the game. He threw for 280 yards, 1 TD and 2 picks. The Giants have been better the last few weeks against the pass but the Packers will open up the running game with Lacy and that should let Tolzien makes some throws to the multiple weapons he has at his disposal. So got Romo on a bye? Rodgers hurt? Or a QB with a tough matchup, take a chance on Tolzien.

André Ellington vs. Jacksonville Jaguars

Owners of Mr. Ellington are going to have to start writing hate mail to Bruce Arians for his horrendous use of him. He had 11 carries for 55 yards (5.0 YPC) and Rashard Mendenhall had 13 carries for 42 yards (3.2 YPC) plus a crucial fumble late in the 4th quarter. Ellington I know isn’t really big enough to be an every down back but has too much ability to be wasted. He gets a Jaguars team that has given up over 400 yards and 5 rushing TDs over the last 3 weeks, Ellington will be a solid RB2/Flex play this week.

Chris Ivory vs. Buffalo Bills

The Bills gave up there 1st rushing TD since week 5 to Le’Veon Bell this week. Ivory had a great game before the bye against the Saints and has rushed for over 100 yards in 2 out of his last 3 games. Even though they seem to be going with the hot hand in New York but Ivory is just the better back and will see enough carries to make him a solid sleeper.

Trent Richardson vs. Tennessee Titans

Okay so I might lose all credibility I have ever had by suggesting the Trent Richardson is a sleeper this week. The Titans have given up 2 rushing TDs in 4 straight weeks and the Colts need to run the ball and are going to have to try and use the guy they gave up a 1st round pick for. He hasn’t been impressive running the ball since coming over in the trade but if there is any team right now in football that can make your confidence go up it’s the Tennessee Titans. I think he will fit nicely in a Flex role this week.

Dwayne Bowe vs. Denver Broncos

Bowe and Smith finally are heading in the right direction towards each other. Bowe has 23 targets over the last 3 games, catching 13 of them for 140 yards. Also he has a great matchup ahead of him against division foe Denver Broncos whom are giving up 25 PPG to opposing WRs. Off the bye week I really like Bowe and you should too.

Percy Harvin vs. Minnesota Vikings

Of course you have to keep an eye out for his status but if he is playing, you are playing him. Playing against his old team and finally getting his 1st game in a Seahawk uniform he is going to want to do big things.

Jarrett Boykin vs. New York Giants

His value seemed diminished once James Jones came back, when Rodgers got hurt and then when Wallace went down but Tolzien looked his way often on Sunday with 13 targets and he caught 8 of them for 112 yards. Tolzien is getting the nod against this week and Boykins should get yours.

Rob Housler vs. Jacksonville Jaguars

Housler found the endzone for the 1st time this season on Sunday and added 3 more catches totaling 57 yards. The Jaguars have a huge weakness against the tight end position as they have given up a TD in 6 out of their last 7 games against them. Housler is a deep sleeper and is a great streaming TE this week.

Carolina Panthers D vs. New England Patriots

The Panthers D has been unreal this season and coming off a huge game against the 49ers in San Fran this weekend, they face the Patriots who are coming off their best offensive output of the season. But I wouldn’t fear the Panthers have a great pass rush

The Sports Script NFL DuDs for Week 10

What’s up again another week is in the fantasy books for the most part, and I have to say this might be the most depressing week of NFL action I’ve ever had. I’m a Titans fan which sucks in itself, but the news that Jake Locker is done just makes it even worse. The fantasy part of my weekend went well for the most part when it comes to yearly leagues, but the daily leagues are going to cost me a lot of money this week. That’s all I have to say on this week, so let’s jump into looking at the DuDs for this weeks NFL action.

Steven Jackson (@sj39) 9 carries 11 yards 3 catches 9 yards – Is he still hurt? I don’t know what the deal is with you Steven Jackson, but at this point I’m thinking maybe you should have just called it a career when you left St. Louis. Jackson is on the field, but doing nothing with his carries going barely over a 1 yard per carry this week. Steven do fantasy owners a favor and just stay off the field for us!

Victor Cruz (@TeamVic)  3 catches 37 yards – This is terrible considering that the Eagles last week had 7 touchdown receptions against this same Raiders team. I don’t care if they are double teaming Cruz he’s the type of wide receiver that finds a way to get open. Cruz you can’t continue these games we need some consistency in our lives as fantasy owners of you. This going off one week and then putting up DuDs does not work!

Chris Johnson (@ChrisJohnson28) 12 carries 30 yards 5 catches 43 yards – This as a Titans fan makes me sad! CJ was fumbling and dropping passes very early in the game and to it just set a tone for the game. CJ was coming off his best game of the year had all the confidence in the world and lays this awful DuD. I don’t even want to write anymore about it, but CJ you failed fantasy owners everywhere. He’s off my radar from now on for the rest of the year.

Colin Kaepernick (@Kaepernick7) 11/22 91 yards 1 int 4 carries 16 yards – This dude is making 49ers fans wish they still had Alex Smith! HAHA! He’s got to play much better if this team is going to get back to the Super Bowl, but honestly I could care less if they get back to the Super Bowl. I do care, however that he’s killing some fantasy teams all over the world. Kaep you can’t throw we get that, so just start busting the big runs for touchdowns again or just stay off the field!

Honorable Mention

Matt Forte 17 rushes 33 yards 4 catches 16 yards – It was a somewhat productive day, but not what you need when paying up for Forte.

Denarius Moore 3 catches 34 yards – He’s got Terrell Pryor at quarterback, so there isn’t much we can expect from his as a wide receiver.

Cam Newton 16/32 169 yards 1 int 7 carries 17 yards – I can’t say he’s a full DuD I mean he did take his team to San Francisco and win the game.

Anquan Boldin 3 catches 23 yards – I don’t know what the deal is here, but he’s useless fantasy wise the way Kaepernick is playing.

Wes Welker 3 catches 21 yards – These games are going to happen when you have has many option on offense as Denver does.

Permanent DuDs

This is a new section where I will put people who seem to be showing up weekly. They will simply earn their way out by having a good game. The guys you see featured here will not have a discussion, because if I put them here at this point I don’t even want to talk about that guy.

Thor: The Dark World Review

Thor: The Dark World is one of the most anticipated films of the fall by quite a few (including myself). I am a huge fan of the Marvel films as they all have been well done. But with all the success I have been concern that maybe they will just start throwing movies out just to make the movies. So I went to see the movie yesterday in 3D and below I give you my 7 things I did or didn’t like about the film.


Chris HemsworthThor
Natalie PortmanJane Foster
Tom HiddlestonLoki
Anthony Hopkins – Odin
Christopher Eccleston – Malekith
Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje – Algrim/Kurse
Rene Russo – Frigga
Idris Elba – Heimdall
Jaimie Alexander – Sif
Ray Stevenson – Volstagg
Zachary Levi – Fandral
Tadanobu Asano – Hogun
Stellan Skarsgard – Dr. Erik Selvig
Kat Dennings – Darcy
Jonathan Howard – Ian
Chris O’Dowd – Richard

 Faced with an enemy that even Odin and Asgard cannot withstand, Thor must embark on his most perilous and personal journey yet, one that will reunite him with Jane Foster and force him to sacrifice everything to save us all.

Thor: The Dark World Review

1. Alan Taylor (Game of Thrones) came on board to direct the sequel of the Marvel hit Thor. I really enjoyed the 1st one and I had high hopes and he didn’t let me down either. Taylor did an amazing job of bringing all Nine worlds together and making sense while he did it. The story was great, the acting was superb and he took it all together and made one hell of a film.

If you watch the 1st film and the 2nd the transformation of Thor (Chris Hemsworth) is unreal. Taylor did a great job of turning Thor into a real Super Hero; he did a great job following up the Avengers in what really brought Thor to the table more so than the original film.

He also put together some great meaningful scenes between Thor, Odin, Loki and Frigga. I applaud him for the way he brought the interaction between Earth and back to Asgard and back to earth again. At no point in this film were you not anticipating what was going to happen next.

2. Chris Hemsworth as Thor: Like I stated earlier the transformation of Thor from Thor to The Avengers to Thor: the Dark World has been amazing. Hemsworth is putting himself in that group of fellow comic book actors as not being able to see anyone else play the role of Thor.

He brings so much to the table as Thor: He brings the good-looking, good acting, nice witty charm and the believability of being an ass kicking Superhero. He has easily turned a character that I didn’t like that much into something I enjoy and look forward to seeing on the screen again.

3. Tom Hiddleston as Loki: He has turned Loki into one of my favorite Comic-Book villain ever portrayed on the big screen. Though his on-screen time in this was not as much as in the previous two movies, he still shined when he was on the screen. He is such a talented actor that brings so much to the Loki character. They really have to find a way to try to get him in the 3rd movie if there will be one.

4. Visually Stunning: All the Marvel movies have been great to see on the eyes but I think this one was one of the best. Across the Nine worlds (those we got to see) was just truly amazing to see. Asgard is at the top of the list for sure.

5. The Supporting Cast: As you can tell on the list above the cast in this film is insane. Whether it’s Anthony Hopkins as Odin or Idris Elba as Heimdale each supporting role has some great scenes throughout the film. Natalie Portman is a great actress and fits the role of Jane Foster really well; she is a type of actress that they really lacked in the Lois Lane (Amy Adams) character in Man of Steel. Not saying she should’ve played it but Portman brings so much more to the table as Foster than Adams did as Lane. Rene Russo (Frigga) has some key pivotal scenes in the movie that made you truly care about her character.

The smaller role like Chris O’Dowd (Richard) plays an intern to Darcy (Kat Dennings) who both had some good lines in the film.

6. The 3D aspect – Well I am finally off my high horse about films in 3D (for now anyway). Thor: the Dark World was well worth seeing in 3D even if it’s just see the stunning view of Asgard but they did a good job of using the 3D in this films and hope more films follow this trait.

7. Action Scenes: This was filled with some action packed fight scenes that were lacking in the 1st film. Thor with the opening scene (which can be seen in the trailer) knocking the crap out of that big villain was great. Then you had the fighting between the worlds that was really cool as well.

8. We had two funny cameos that you need to look out for. (Not spoiling them).
Also make sure you stay for the after the 1st set of credits and the 2nd set of credits.

The Final Verdict

4 ½ out of 5 stars

Alan Taylor brought us the best Comic Book movie of the year. This was an action packed ride that had you from the start to the finish. The way he was able to bring all nine worlds together and make it matter was great. Chris Hemsworth and Tom Hiddleston bring so much to this franchise and I would like them to hop on board for a 3rd film as well.

One of my must see movies of the fall didn’t disappoint one bit.

Thor: The Dark World is in theaters now.

Week 10 Fantasy Football Must Start/Must Sit

Week 9 was a return of a Future Hall of Famer (Tom Brady), a record-breaking game from an unusual candidate (Nick Foles) and we saw Aaron Rodgers go down with what looks like an injury that will keep him out for a while. Some big games as we inch closer to the Fantasy Football playoffs but before I give you week 10’s Must Start/Must Sit, I take a look how I did in week 9.

Starts that made me look good

Cam Newton – 271 total yards and 2 total TDs – The 2 INTs hurt him a bit but was still a great play this week.
Philip Rivers – 341 yards and 2 TDs – Rivers is becoming a QB1 week by week.
Chris Johnson – 170 total yards and 2 TDs – Took advantage of a great matchup and looked completely different this week than any week earlier.
Eddie Lacy – 150 yards and a TD – Slowly but surely making him a top 5 option for 2014.
Jared Cook – 3 catches 36 yards and a TD – I had a gut feeling he would reach the endzone and he did.

Starts that made me look bad

Stevie Johnson – 5 catches 36 yards – Just wasn’t a factor.
Terrence Williams – 2 catches 33 yards – The TD streak comes to an end and was upstaged by Beasley and Harris.

Sits that made me look good

Pierre Thomas – 88 total yards – Didn’t find a lot of running room but did benefit from Sproles getting hurt in the 1st half.
Marvin Jones – 4 catches 66 yards – After scoring 4 TDs he was held to 4 catches.
Scott Chandler – 3 catches 26 yards – Chandler is a mediocre fantasy option with spotty QB play for the Bills.
Indianapolis Colts D – Case Keenum looked great and torched the Colts for 3 TD passes.

Sits that made me look bad

Tom Brady – 432 yards and 4 TDs – The one week he decides to show up is the week he goes out and kills it.
Lamar Miller – 129 total yards – Sadly a fumble cost him a very good game but let’s hope that doesn’t cost him in the coming weeks.
TY Hilton – 7 catches/121 yards/ 3 TDs – One of my biggest blunders of the season. He looked great and moving forward a great fantasy option.

Week 10 Fantasy Football Must Start (Bye Week: Browns, Jets, Patriots and Chiefs)

Robert Griffin III vs. Minnesota Vikings

Thursday games have been tricky this year and really haven’t been great for Fantasy players but this matchup you really can’t pass up. The Vikings are giving up 4th most Fantasy points to opposing QBs and have only picked off 1 pass in the past 4 games. While RGIII has been a disappointment over the last two weeks, he will take advantage of this good matchup and is a must-start this week.

Russell Wilson vs. Atlanta Falcons

Wilson led the charge after being down 21-0 to the Bucs and came back to win the game 27-24 in OT. He did so with 3 total TDs and that is 8 touchdowns in 3 games. Wilson to me isn’t a QB1 each week but this week he is a must start against a reeling Falcons team.

Maurice Jones-Drew vs. Tennessee Titans

Did anyone watch what Zac Stacy did to this Titans run D last week? I sure they heck did and although Jones-Drew might not have those young legs that Stacy does, he is fresh off a bye and the healthiest he has been all season. Jones-Drew should have no problem finding running room this week against the Titans and should be in all lineups.

Fred Jackson vs. Pittsburgh Steelers

So which is more of a surprise, the Steelers rank as 5th worst team against opposing RBs or the fact that Fred Jackson is in the top 10 of all Fantasy RBs this year? I would have to go with the latter; the Steelers aren’t getting any younger and were just torched by the New England Patriots on the ground. I would expect to see a lot of Fjax/Spiller this week especially if we see Manuel come back this week. Great matchup, great start.

TY Hilton vs. St. Louis Rams

I ate some serious crow last week by having him in my Must Sit piece last week and recommending to Sit him to just about anyone that asked. Well you won’t fool me this week Mr. Hilton, you are in my Must start against the Rams.

Keenan Allen vs. Denver Broncos

Over the last 4 games Allen has 26 catches for 417 yards and 3 TDs. He is Rivers go to target no matter where they are on the field. The Broncos pass D hasn’t been that great this week and if the Chargers plan to compete with this high-octane offense of the Broncos, these two are going to have to connect on a ton of passes.

Antonio Gates vs. Denver Broncos

The Broncos have given up 9 or more Fantasy points to tight ends 6 times this year. Gates is coming off 4 consecutive performances with 7 points or less. I like Gates this week as I expect we will see a ton of passing this week.

Arizona Cardinals D vs. Houston Texans

The Cardinals are 3-1 at home this season in those 3 wins they are giving up only 13 PPG. They face Case Keenum who is coming off an impressive 3 TD performance against the Colts. Rookie QB in just his 3rd start (2nd on the road) against a solid D, give me the Cards D all day long.

Week 10 Fantasy Football Must Sit

Matt Ryan vs. Seattle Seahawks

You have to feel bad for Matt Ryan this year. He got his 1st victory in the playoffs and the Falcons added him a good running back and this team was poised for the Super Bowl. Injures to Julio Jones, Roddy White and Steven Jackson has made this season miserable for him instead. He faces a tough Seattle D and is coming off back to back single point Fantasy outputs. An easy must sit.

BenJarvus Green-Ellis/Gio Bernard vs. Baltimore Ravens

Good lord I predicted the Ravens would go to the Super Bowl for the 2nd straight year. I think I have cursed these guys as they sit 3-5 and 2 and half back from the Bengals. One thing they have been good at is stopping the run though. If you can find better options to start this week I would.

Le’Veon Bell vs. Buffalo Bills

Bell has back to back double-digit Fantasy performances but faces a tough Bills run D. Bills have only given up one rushing TD and give up only 12 PPG to RBs. I don’t like this matchup for Bell this week.

Larry Fitzgerald vs. Houston Texans

The Texans pass D only gave up 2 TDs to opposing WRs since week 1 and last week TY Hilton gave them the business catching 3 of his own. But I don’t like this matchup for Fitzgerald. I know he is a hard guy to sit down but if you have better options I would go that route.

Anquan Boldin vs. Carolina Panthers

This game is huge for the Panthers and I think they have all the tools to step up and make this a good game. They have to start with shutting down Boldin and they have done a great job at shutting down opposing teams WR. They haven’t given up a TD to opposing receiver since week 2. Boldin should be on the bench this week.

Jason Witten vs. New Orléans Saints

The Saints have been great against TEs this season giving up single-digit points in every game but one. Witten had his best game since week 5 against the Vikings but I don’t think he will have much success this week. The Tight End pool is fairly weak and you may have to start him but if you have a solid back-up I would think about starting him instead.

Green Bay Packers D vs. Philadelphia Eagles

No Aaron Rodgers will not bode well for the Packers D and against Chip Kelly’s offense they are going to be on a the field a lot. What seemed to be a good matchup a week ago isn’t that way now.
