Top NFL players week 8

A week full of surprises presented itself over the past few days. The top quarter backs and running backs keep shifting, while Megatron stays atop the wide receiver list.

The Saints were blown out by the Rams, making back-to-back puzzling losses by the 2008 Super Bowl winners to the horrible NFC-West division.

The 49ers won again, making them 6-1 for the first time since the late 90s and are for-sure playoff bound. I was happy to attend the beating of the Browns on Sunday afternoon.

The Lions stop their slip of losses by winning over the poor Broncos. And, on to the next one:  Continue reading “Top NFL players week 8” Top NFL players week 8

Top NFL players week 6

As if this year’s NFL season hasn’t been crazy enough, 8 of this week’s top-5 are outside of the top-10 overall for the season. Ahmad Bradshaw claims the lone 30-point performance, putting it to those hapless Bills with 3 scores. Only two quarterbacks landed in the 20-point range, but all 5 running backs had a 20+ point performance. To make things even more exciting, all 6 wide receivers this week are fresh in our top-5 list.

My 49ers are 2nd in the NFL/NFC at 5-1, my Packers are atop by themselves at 6-0, and my prediction Eagles & Falcons are doing quite horrible. My fantasy teams with money involved are both 4-2, so being first/second place in those isn’t too shabby.

Top NFL players week 5

We’re about a third of the way through the season already – wow! There’s plenty of surprising teams out there, not least of which are my San Francisco 49ers who are two games up in the NFC West. Their next big test will be against the Detroit Lions next week who are making big waves themselves at 5-0, tied with the Super Bowl winning Green Bay Packers in the NFL, as well as being in the same division.

This week’s view of top players has a few of your weekly guys that you can count on to gather you tons of fantasy points week after week, as well as some new additions to the list. Cam Newton continues to shine, but I still haven’t started him in any week, due to the fact I typically have Drew Brees or Aaron Rodgers as well on my roster, who are solid & proven starters. The Minnesota Vikings toppled the Arizona Cardinals, so Adrian Peterson certainly played hard, and the unlikely Kansas City Chiefs beat out the hapless Indianapolis Colts, who may never be with Peyton Manning again.
