Ricky’s Week 4 Fantasy Review

I am back with another edition of the Ricky’s Review. I am going to breakdown the week that it was in the world of Fantasy Football and what I brought to the table as far as my 5-Pack Fantasy Sleepers as well as my Must Start/Must Sit pick for the week. So this will be either an article ranting and raving about how awesome I am or me talking about how I enjoyed a long, emotional shower cry Sunday Night.

Week 4 was really insane. Forte broke out of his slump, McCoy had his 2nd straight single-digit performance, Eli Manning looked like Peyton and Matt Asiata scored not once, not twice but three times this week. Speaking of McCoy, could someone wake him up please, I have way too much stock in him to be treading water week to week.

Alright lets dive right into my 5-Pack Fantasy Sleepers for Week 4

Tom Brady – Ummmmmmmmm yeah. Let’s not talk about this one folks.

Matt Asiata – 100 total yards and 3 TDs – My man Asiata just killed it this week!!!!! Although his job is probably in jeopardy with how good McKinnon looked but still LOVED this matchup and going forward I think I like anyone who is rushing against that Falcons D.

Jeremy Maclin – 5 catches 68 yards – Can we get a bonus for great catches? The price just didn’t end up being worth it this week.

Owen Daniels – 4 catches 43 yards – This was pretty solid value. He was one of the cheapest TE’s and unless you spent big on Graham, he wasn’t awful.

Lions D – 17 points 2 turnovers 2 sacks – They weren’t fantastic but they did well enough to be a solid play for me this week.

Overall: Asiata provided amazing value and the Lions D was good as well but other than that just a crap shoot of MEHness this week.

Now let’s dig into my Start/Sit Hit’s and Misses

I breakdown my list into 3 sections, Hits (Guys who made me look good), Misses (Guys who made me look bad) & the Meh Group (They weren’t hits but they surely didn’t miss).

Must Start Hit’s

Philip Rivers – 377 yards and 3 TDs – He came in and did his job like he should have. Great play this week.

Ahmad Bradshaw – 52 yards and a TD – That makes it 3 straight games with a receiving TD. The TD really saved what would’ve been a lackluster day for him.

Charges D – 14 points 3 sacks 3 turnovers – Job well done.

Must Start Misses

Antonio Gates – 3 catches 30 yards – I guess you can’t win them all in this matchup. Gates was 5th in the pecking order in targets.

The Meh Group

Michael Crabtree – 5 catches 43 yards – 9 PPR points? 4.3 standard points? MEH!

Must Sit Hit’s

Joquie Bell/ Reggie Bush – 104 total yards – This was a real no brainer for me. Jets run D is legit and proved so but shutting both of these guys down.

Greg Olsen – 2 catches 30 yards – I hated this matchup for him this week and even late he really couldn’t get it going when the team was down big.

Panthers D – 38 points 0 turnovers 0 sacks – This is not the same defense it was last year.

Must Sit Misses

Vincent Jackson – 3 catches 32 yards 1 TD – NOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!! A TD catch with 7 seconds left really ruined this for me.

 

Overall: Overall it was a pretty good week. Gates/Crabs/Vjax were my only enemies this week, outside of that looks like everyone did their part for me.

Ricky’s Week 3 Fantasy Review

I am back with another edition of the Ricky’s Review. I am going to breakdown the week that it was in the world of Fantasy Football and what I brought to the table as far as my 5-Pack Fantasy Sleepers as well as my Must Start/Must Sit pick for the week. So this will be either an article ranting and raving about how awesome I am or me talking about how I enjoyed a long, emotional shower cry Sunday Night.

Week 3 was insane, we saw Andy Dalton catch a TD pass, Who needs Jamaal Charles when you have Kniles Davis and Joe McKnight (who caught 2 TD passes), Bridgewater/Bortles  made to their 1st NFL snaps, Eli Manning didn’t throw an interception and Lorenzo Taliaferro looks like he might take that Ravens RB job by storm.

Alright lets dive right into my 5-Pack Fantasy Sleepers for Week 3

QB – Kirk Cousins – (30/48 427 yards & 3 TDs) – He had quite the sexy matchup and really came through this week and took advantage of it. Cousins has looked amazing and made some great decisions with the football, I love him on a week to week basis as Jay Gruden likes to throw the ball.

RB – Ahmad Bradshaw – (9 carries 65 yards, 2 catches 18 yards & a TD) – Bradshaw stepped up and performed just as I hoped, he caught his 3rd TD in 2 games and totaled 83 yards.

WR – Greg Jennings – (5 catches 70 yards) – I wasn’t expecting Jennings to exactly light it up but for the price you would’ve paid for him, you would’ve gotten some real good value.

TE – Niles Paul – (6 catches 68 yards) – Niles saw 9 more targets this week catching 6 of them for 68 yards, while he didn’t find the endzone, he still provided great value this week.

D – Cowboys D – Talk about being saved by a Pick-6. This looked horrible for about 3 & half quarters but they provided a late INT that was returned for a TD, which was enough to make them a hit for me this week.

Overall – I had a pretty solid week, everyone provided great value with Cousins/Bradshaw really knocking it out of the park.

Now let’s dig into my Start/Sit Hit’s and Misses

I breakdown my list into 3 sections, Hits (Guys who made me look good), Misses (Guys who made me look bad) & the Meh Group (They weren’t hits but they surely didn’t miss).

Must Start Hit’s

Bobby Rainey – (11 carries 41 yards, 7 catches 64 yards, 2 fumbles) – While in PPR leagues he provided a nice value even after the 2 fumbles but if you started him in standard, you were really let down big time. So I’ll take the Hit in PPR leagues but a Miss in Standards on this one.

Ahmad Bradshaw – (9 carries 65 yards, 2 catches 18 yards & a TD) – See above

Alshon Jeffery – Add after Monday night

Bengals D – (7 points, 2 INT & 2 sacks) – Hit this one right on the head folks. Titans aren’t a very good football team and the Bengals probably have one of the best defenses in football.

Must Start Misses

Matthew Stafford – (246 yards & 2 INT) – Talking about really annoying, this was a great matchup for Stafford and he just completely was garbage in this game.

Must Start Meh

Bobby Rainey – See Above

Delaine Walker – (4 catches 54 yards) – Walker caught 4 of his 7 targets but couldn’t find the endzone for the first time this year. I thought we would get atleast a garbage time TD from him but we weren’t rewarded with that either. The Bengals D is legit folks.

Must Sit Hit’s

Andy Dalton – (15/23, 169 yards & a INT) – I feel like just for the receiving TD he shouldn’t be on this list but yeah the Titans did what I thought they would and held Dalton in check.

Martellous Bennett –

Must Sit Misses

Lamar Miller – (15 carries 108 yards & 4 catches 24 yards) – Yep I was wrong, next.

Kelvin Benjamin – (8 catches 115 yards & a TD) – This shocked me. I just didn’t see this coming out of him this week.

Colts D – (17 points, 4 sacks, 2 INT & 1 TD) – I was really expecting a closer matchup between the two teams. The 17 points didn’t come until garbage time, the Jags are just bad at football but Bortles seems like he is going to be fun to watch.

Overall: My Must starts looked pretty good minus Stafford but my Must Sits were TERRIBLE choices this week. Miller just exploded this week and I just didn’t see that coming at all. Oh well, you win some and you lose some.

Ricky’s Week 2 Fantasy Review

Welcome aboard to the 1st edition of Ricky’s Fantasy Review. I am going to breakdown some of the happenings in the week that it was, also giving you a recap of how my 5-Pack sleepers and My Start/Sit picks did as well, so some weeks you’ll be reading me brag about how awesome I am or some weeks you’ll be joining me for the traditional shower cry.

Week 2 in the NFL was a crazy one indeed, just before kickoff we got the news that Carson Palmer would not be playing, the status of Brandon Marshall and Alshon Jefferies were in question, DeAngelo Williams found his way on the unactive list and Greg Hardy went from active to inactive in a span of 25 minutes. But folks it didn’t stop there at all, within a 10 minutes span to open the week we saw injuries to players left and right, crippling Fantasy owners across the board.

Enough about all the depressing happenings and let’s talk about how my 5-Pack Fantasy Sleepers performed this week.

Ryan Tannehill was my QB and just couldn’t take advantage of what I thought was a fantastic matchup. He did throw for 241 yards and a TD and a late garbage time touchdown may have made this into a nice little pick but instead a late INT cemented him as just a mediocre pick for this week.

Mark Ingram was RB and he balled out folks. He rushed for 83 yards on 11 carries and caught 3 passes for 21 yards and added a rushing TD as well. Ingram is looking mighty good through the 1st two weeks of the season.

Andrew Hawkins was my WR pick and he showed me some serious love this week. Now when he fell on the game clinching catch at the end of the game and he would’ve scored, I about cried but none the less Hawkins caught 6 catches for 70 yards on 12 targets. Hawkins is looking like a really solid play week to week in PPR formats.

Charles Clay was my TE pick for the week and he just ended the game with a UGH game. He did finish with 7 catches but only 31 yards on those 7 catches. I wouldn’t say he was a complete “dud” but he didn’t exactly kill it either for me.

My D was the Titans, I really started leaning against this matchup as the week went on but while they didn’t end up in the negative (6 points on most Daily sites) they didn’t kill it either.

Overall: It wasn’t a terrible week for me but I didn’t kill it either. Ingram was my bright spot for the week

Now let’s dig into my Start/Sit Hit’s and Misses

Must Start hits

Andy Dalton (15/23 – 252 yards & a TD) – While he wasn’t as dominate as I thought he would be Dalton connected with Sanu on a 76 yard bomb that reversed what would’ve been a tough day for Dalton owners.

Zach Ertz – (4 catches for 86 yards) – While he didn’t find the endzone in the game, Ertz made some big plays again in the passing game.

Must Sit hits

Tony Romo – (19/29 – 176 yards & a TD) – He wasn’t flashy at all and they didn’t need him to be either. Murray carried the load and Romo failed to throw a INT.

Eddie Lacy – (61 total yards) – The Jets shot out to a huge lead early and took Lacy out of the game.

Any Oakland WR – This is a shout out to anyone not named James Jones.

Must Start Misses

Shane Vereen – (40 total yards) – I think this one hurts a little too much to talk about for me.

Kendell Wright – (3 catches for 31 yards) – Wright just couldn’t take advantage of this great matchup and that is tough to watch.

Denver D – (24 points & 380 total yards) – The Chiefs team that played in Week 2 was totally different from Week 1.

Must Sit Misses

James Jones – (9 catches for 112 yards & a TD) – UGH REALLLLLLLLLLLLLY?

Antonio Gates – (7 catches for 96 yards & 3 TDs) – Did someone tell the Seahawks that Gates was old and slow? Cause I sure didn’t see anyone covering the guy.

Overall as a whole, week 2 wasn’t too terrible for me but it surely wasn’t great. Week 3 seems like a good week to put the pieces all together and just kill it, right? I think so.
