Week 7 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 – Freeman and Coleman are must starts for any league this week.
vs – Spencer Ware is still getting up to 24 carries a game while they continue to ease Jamaal Charles back into the Offense. Saint’s Defense has allowed the most rushing TDs in the NFL.
vs – DeMarco Murray is poised for a 200-yard game against that Colt’s Defense
Top 3 Passing Match-ups:
vs – Browns Defense has given up 16 passing scores in six games this year.
vs – Brady and Gronk all the way!
vs – Kirk Cousins is looking better each week and the Lions defense just got their lunch fed to them by Case Keenum last Sunday. Yes, I said Case Keenum!
QB – Colin Kaepernick
RB – James White
RB – Jacquizz Rodgers
WR – Torrey Smith
TE – C.J. Fiedorowics
News and Notes
It looks like Ben Roethlisberger will be out for 4 to 6 weeks now. This means Antonio Brown and LeVeon Bell’s FF numbers will go down significantly. I would still start them if need be, but any other TE or WR on Pittsburgh should be benched.
Speaking of Pittsburgh, they get to host New England this week. Brady will continue his onslaught and now Gronkowski is back to his normal scoring self. Uh oh Steelers.
Joe Flacco is nursing a shoulder injury. He missed Wednesday and Thursday’s practices and is looking more and more like he will not play this week. He was limited in practice on Friday and will be listed as QUESTIONABLE. Keep an eye on this.
Geno Smith has been named the starter over Ryan Fitzpatrick in New York. I don’t think you should drop Fitzpatrick just yet, but let us just wait and see what Geno does this week.
Las Vegas over/under has the San Diego at Atlanta and Washington at Detroit games as the high scoring games of the week. Start what you can from these team’s offensive players.
