The Holy Grail – Week 8 WRs

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

Steve Smith, American football wide receiver f...

Gotta be happy for the guy!

MUST START

1 Calvin Johnson vs Den – Champ wouldn’t be able to cover him in his prime let alone past it.

2 Nicks vs Mia – I take chances in my WR ranks  and he gets the nod because he is due for a huge game soon. Miami is the right matchup for it to happen.

3 Wallace vs NE – You have to think with the extra week to prep for the Steelers that Belichek will make it his goal to take Wallace out of the game. Regardless , he doesn’t have the personnel to execute his defensive gameplans.

4 Welker vs Pit – He is on fire this year , breaking yardage records and dominating the PPR landscape. Pit may contain him a bit , but you never sit him regardless.

5 Steve Smith vs Wash – Newton has really brought life back into a career that was floundering. You can’t help but feel happy for him.

6 Colston vs Stl – He is dominating everyone right now , and the Rams will be no different.

7 Vjax vs KC – Say what you want , but I am gonna keep rolling him out there; especially against a team as beatable for big plays as Kansas City.

8 Bowe vs SD – Same game as the above , worse QB but he still plays as a high end WR1 in almost any matchup.

9 Dez Bryant vs Phi – He has already surpassed Miles Austin as Romo’s most trusted wideout. He looks for him between the 20’s and in the Redzone. At his age and with his skill set he could dominate the position in the years to come.

10 Steve Johnson vs Wash – Had a week off and should come back ready to shine. He is so hard to cover and is all over the field. Fitz loves him and so do I.

The Holy Grail- Week 7 WRs

Lollipop (Lil Wayne song)

Lil Wayne better than Reggie Wayne?

MUST STARTS

1 Calvin vs Atl – Oh, Hey amazing player on all my teams. Thanks for being you.

2 Miles Austin vs Stl – Romo to Austin for 2 Tds this week , lock it down he will be a monster.

3 Bowe vs Oak – Cassel to Bowe has been a theme for the last couple of weeks and it will continue this week as he looks strong and fast; which is scary , not like Michael Myers scary , more like Amityville scary because it’s based on a true story.

3 Wallace vs Az – See the Big Ben blurb , realize Rodgers-Cromartie is now on the Eagles. Put those together and Wallace is a monster. I couldn’t decide between him and Bowe so they both get ranked 3rd.

5 Dez Bryant vs Stl – If you can’t tell I’m high on the Romo to Dez to Miles to Witten arrangement they will have going on this week – it reminds me of a 4 way marriage or whatever it is the Mormons call it; Romo is the Daddy.

6 Steve Smith vs Wash – He is due for a score and 100 yards  , he is guaranteed at least one of those two things , and if he gets both he becomes a top 3 play. So I think 6 is a great spot for him this week.

7 Marshall vs Den – Looked unstoppable last week against Revis of all people. Champ is shutting people down this season for Denver so far but Marshall is a wack job so that gives him an edge.

8 Colston vs Ind – After last week how could he not be in the top 10 in a PPR blog during such a deep bye week. Even if he spells his first name wrong; Seriously: Marques?  CMON MAN.

9 Vincent Jackson vs NYJ – He is healthy and he is built like Marshall who dominated the Jets last week.

The Holy Grail – Week 6 WR’s

New England Patriots wide receiver Wes Welker ...

Sorry for doubting You Wes!

Teams on Bye : Broncos, Titans, Chiefs, Cardinals, Chargers, Seahawks

MUST START

1 Calvin vs SF – Not even going to say a word. I am just going to smile because he is the one player I own the most in 50 fantasy leagues.

2 Welker vs Dal – Not even going to say a word. I am just going to frown because he is the one player I do not own once in 50 fantasy leagues.

3 Nicks vs Buf – He is a TD freak and the Bills secondary is very burnable.

4 White vs Car – Julio Jones will either be out or ineffective and the Panthers are only in the middle of the pack in pass defense.

5 Mike Wallace  vs Jax – At home , Ben had a 5td game last week and he is unguardable by any defense, let alone a defense that is purely the product of an easy schedule so far.

6 Jennings vs STL – At home against a bad defense. It’s just that simple.

7 Steve Smith @Atl – Falcons have a lot of holes on defense and have been a pure disappointment on both sides of the ball right so far. Smith on the other hand has not.

8 Dez Bryant vs NE – Worst pass defense in the NFL meets a top 5 and healthy passing offense in the NFL. It’s gonna be a big scoring game so you start all your Cowboys and Pats this week.

9 Miles Austin vs NE – He is back and Romo clearly will look his way. Dez should be healthy and they both will get their fill against a horrible secondary.
