The Holy Grail – Week 8 QBs

Alex Smith running onto the field before a 200...

Smith won't pull a Whitehurst this weekend!

Teams on bye week: Falcons, Bears, Packers, Raiders, Jets, Buccaneers

MUST START

1 Brees  vs STL- Much like Graham , there is no other choice for the top spot this week. The stats plus the matchup make this easy.

2 Vick vs Dal – The bye week gave him time to get his legs fresh and recover from the beatings he has been taking. Dallas swarms to the ball , but Vick scores 20 in a bad game.

3 Cam vs Min – What a stud this guy turned out to be as he continues to augment his passing stats with great rushing stats.

4 Brady vs Pit – Would be higher if not for the electric nature of the position this year. Cam, Vick , Brees all have their own claims to the top spot each week and Brady has the misfortune of playing against Pitt.

5 Rivers vs KC – I am loading up on him in Salary Cap games. He is still an elite QB and KC is the perfect matchup for him to show it.

6 Eli vs Mia – Nicks will explode this week and the ‘Fins will have no answer for Bradshaw or Jacobs. Giants will put up a big number.

7 Ben Roethlisberger vs NE – Will have plenty of chances to put up big TD numbers against this horrible defense.

8 Stafford vs Den – Slips a bit in my rankings because of the injury questions – still a must start if healthy b/c of the offense and the upside.

The Holy Grail: Week 4 QBs

Quarterback Ben Roethlisberger of the Pittsbur...

Big Week Comin!

MUST STARTS

1 Brady vs Oak – He is who he is and he could throw 5 ints this week and still score 30, never sit him.

2 Rodgers vs Denver – 400 and 4tds is a distinct possibility this week , gotta feel good about having him in your lineup.

3 Brees vs Jax – Jax has been surprisingly good ,but Brees has been unsurprisingly amazing.

4 Stafford vs Dallas – Dallas run D has been good so far. There pass D will get better and Ware could cause some problems. None of this matters as a healthy Stafford has become an elite QB already.

5 Rivers vs Mia – He is at home , he made me look bad last week , but if you drafted him you are starting him , especially in this matchup. Some injuries to their key offensive players is a bit worrisome.

6 Roethlisberger vs Hou- Expecting a big game from him this week and gets a nice bump up from his usual spot in my weekly rankings.

Dear Readers,

I missed some deadlines this week. iCon Joe has been in the lab all day every day prepping for a amazing midseason launch that will give you guys just a taste of what to expect from this fantasy outlet.

This is NO EXCUSE. I am a gamer , I am expected to deliver results when results are due and I will deliver this each week on time in the future.

HOWEVER : ALL MONEY LEAGUE PLAYERS PAY ATTENTION , iconfantasysports is going to do something to kick off the website that has NEVER been done before!

Details will be released next week to coincide with the sale of midseason leagues!

Week 3 Qbs- Ranks and Thoughts

Must Starts

1 Rivers vs KC – Due for a huge game. My pick to light it up #beastmode this week. Gates may be banged up, but so is the KC secondary without Berry. Oh and KC has allowed 8 passing tds in 2 weeks, worst in the NFL.

2 Brady vs Buf -Bills play him tough , so did the Dolphins. A Hern. is hurt , it won’t matter and I actually believe Ocho will now be given a fair chance.
