Top NFL players week 14

I’ve been dominant in my first week of my 2 money fantasy football leagues. It’s all about paying attention to your players and their matchups.

Do you take that average quarterback going up against the Minnesota Vikings or the New York Giants, who have the worst 2 pass defenses in the league? Of course you do!

Should I pick up a Toby Gerhart who has barely touched the ball all season, just because Adrian Peterson is injured? Heck yeah!

If you stay active in your leagues, you win games. If your team consists of players who are outside of the top 20, you can still achieve success. Watch the waiver wire, stay in-tune to player news and injuries, and grab those backups!

Three weeks of regular season football remain, good luck out there.  Continue reading “Top NFL players week 14” Top NFL players week 14

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

After a week off, the 49ers are still on top

In fact, the 49ers increased their lead across the entire division and they didn’t even play this past weekend, all thanks to the Cardinals, Rams, and Seahawks losing their games.

Seattle Seahawks (2-4) – A new quarterback, but still old problems. They lost to the Cleveland Browns (next up, Niners!) 6-3 in a game that looked more like a baseball score than an NFL game. From Tavaris Jackson to Charlie Whitehurst, the Seahawks are lost. So much for rolling off that playoff season last year.

Arizona Cardinals (1-5) – Larry Fitzgerald can’t throw the ball to himself, guys. You threw your defense away for an unproven quarterback in Kevin Kolb, and where has that gotten you? Patrick Peterson, your top pick cornerback replacement, has been burnt so many times that I’m running out of bread.

St Louis Rams (0-6) – One of the true contenders in the Suck for Luck contest (but let’s be honest, they’d be better off trading the pick away and to stick with Sam Bradford), the hapless Rams are worse off than every other team. They even traded for pro bowl wide receiver Brandon Lloyd, they have an excellent running back in Steven Jackson, and they still can’t put it together. Heck, the New Orleans Saints scored more points on Sunday night than the Rams have scored all year.

No, rest assured, the San Francisco 49ers (5-1) are not only stuck with the inability to draft Andrew Luck next year, but they’ll have to face the Green Bay Packers and likely the Saints in the playoffs. Fortunately however, they’re looking like a lock to win 2nd/3rd in the conference, with a possible first-round bye for the wild card games. The Niners still have to play their divisional rivals twice each, and that’s going to be an easy 6 wins (11 total), plus the Cleveland Browns this weekend (12 wins), and have to face the New York Giants, Pittsburgh Steelers, and Baltimore Ravens. Even if all three of those games are a loss, the 49ers are projected to end with a 12-4 record, which surely will be enough for a top 3 spot.
