Tim Tebow (DEN): The NFL’s most talked about player will beat the Bears this week and likely score a good amount of fantasy points in the progress. As much as I enjoy talking down about Tebow he has been a great fantasy option since taking over and wins games.
Reggie Bush (MIA): Bush continued his stretch of solid running last week against Oakland going for 100 yards on the dot and a touchdown. This week he gets Philly, a team that has been very soft against the run this year. I expect Bush to rush for decent yardage while adding some more in the air, likely with a score.
Ryan Matthews (SD): This is a great matchup for Matthews who is coming off back to back 100 yard games. The Bills on the other hand are allowing 126 rush yards per game to go with 14 rushing touchdowns. Start Matthews with confidence this weekend.
Stevie Johnson (BUF): Buffalo plays San Diego this weekend in a game that could be rather high scoring with Rivers taking on Fitzpatrick. Since Fred Jackson went down with a season ending injury Stevie has seen an even heavier workload. Johnson should double digit targets, so he has plenty of opportunity for a good week.
Percy Harvin (MIN): Percy is one of my favorite young players in the league and has ben a work horse since Adrian Peterson went down. Minnesota plays Detroit this weekend in a divisional matchup in which I expect Harvin to touch the ball plenty of times.
Dustin Keller (NYJ): KC gives up the most scores to TE’s this season, so Keller, who is still a favorite of Sanchez despite Burress and Holmes, will have ample opportunity to cash in on pay dirt this weekend. Unless you have a stud TE, and their are not many, Keller could be what you need this week.
Matt Ryan (ATL): Ryan is coming of a disappointing loss to the Schaubless Houston Texans in which he threw the ball more than he should. This week ATL takes on Carolina, a team which routinely allows big day to opposing RB’s. If Atlanta has any sense Turner will be carrying the ball 25 times or so with Ryan limiting his throws.
Peyton Hillis (CLE): Hillis is questionable for the weekend with a hip injury but has been quoted as saying he will be playing. He was able to gain 97 yards last week against Baltimore but couldn’t get to the end zone, I expect his no TD streak to continue for one more week.
Beanie Wells (ARZ): Wells has been having a stellar year, with only a few bad games. One of those poor games however was against the same 49’ers team that Beanie will be facing today. Still no RB has scored a rushing TD against the 49’ers so Beanie is playing for yards.
DeSean Jackson (PHI): Jackson has long been a boom or bust player, a type of player I hate owning and have abused by placing on my sit list more than once (it usually pays off). My Dolphins have been playing some great football as of late and have not allowed many TD’s; I don’t expect Jackson to cash in on this one this week.
Dwayne Bowe (KC): Orton was set to take over as QB for KC last week but was injured basically right away and again the reigns were left to Tyler Palko. Palko has struggled a lot as a starter and will continue to do so this week; Bowe will pay the price.
Greg Olsen (CAR): Olsen has stayed out of the endzone for about 4 weeks now, and with the many ways QB Cam Newton is scoring there is less and less room for other players to get in on the action.
Sorry for my lack of content in the last few weeks. Between my eye injury and my workload at school I have not been able to keep up with it all, and alas, Fantasy Football suffers.
