Week 6 Match-ups!
Saturdays I like to focus on this weekend’s match-ups and throw in a few Sleepers.
Top 3 Rushing Match-ups:
vs – LeVeon Bell going against a defense that allows an average of 150 yards a game.
vs – DeMarco Murray is back to his Pro Bowl form. Look out Cleveland defense.
vs – 49ers Defense allowed 172 rushing yards last week, and 194 yards the week before. LeSean McCoy all day.
Top 3 Passing Match-ups:
vs – This could be the best chance for Osweiler to break out.
vs – Drew Brees at home. Remember what Matt Ryan did to the Panthers secondary?
vs – Carson Palmer is back. Fitzgerald should have another big day.
QB – Brock Osweiler
RB – Arian Foster
WR – Mike Wallace
WR – Cameron Meredith
TE – Jesse James
News and Notes
Lions RB Riddick is out again. They had to sign Justin Forsett.
Raiders RB Latavius Murray is out again with a toe injury. Look for Washington and Richard to split the carries in his absence.
Brady will continue his revenge tour this week against Cincinnati, but Gronkowski is still not 100%. Look for Martellus Bennett to have another big game.
Colin Kaepernick will start for the 49ers this weekend. He is the perfect QB to run Chip Kelly’s offense, at least in theory. But we have not seen him in action for over a year. Keep an eye on him, unless he has lost all his skills, he should put up a lot of rushing points and steal the TDs from his running backs.
Las Vegas over/under has the Carolina at New Orleans game as the highest point prediction this weekend. Should be a lot of points with those two lousy secondaries.
