The Holy Grail – Week 7 TEs

Heath Miller iPhone Wallpaper

Sit him this week!

Teams on bye week: Bills, Bengals, Patriots, Giants, Eagles, 49ers

MUST START

1 Graham vs Indy – Simply put the best TE in fantasy football this year.

2 Witten vs Stl – Keeps on chugging , keeps on putting up numbers , keeps on being a must start.

3 Finley vs Min – Only stays this high because of all of the TEs on a bye this week. He is getting lost in that offense , but still is due for a huge week soon.

4 Fred Davis vs Car – Cooley injured and Beck starting increases Freddy’s value for the rest of the season. Grossman was clearly losing steam and Beck will do better  by default. Nice matchup against a bad defense.

5 Daniels vs Ten – Great matchup and set up for a big game. Considered flip flopping between him and Freddy but regardless they hold about the same value and in a deep bye week are must starts at the postion unless you own one of the top 3.

6 Pettigrew vs Atl – About as consistent as they come. The Best injury opens up more offensive targets and chances for guys like Pettigrew. I own him a ton so at least I can find a silver lining with Best out.

7 Tony G vs Det – Consistently producing this year and turned a lot of pundits (including me) right on their ear. It’s good to see one of the great ones still producing this late in the game , keep it up Tony!

SOLID STARTS

8 Olsen vs Wash – Not a great matchup , but he deserves a start almost every week for what he means to that offense. Cam could and prob should use him a bit more , but there is no arguing with the fact he clearly is on the right team for fantasy purposes.

9 Benjamin Watson vs Sea – This is more a gut play than anything. He has a penchant for random explosive weeks and this could be one of them. ZZZ Sleeper

10 Gates vs NYJ – Keep your expectations in check because of his health. But there are a TON of people itching to get him back in their lineup this week and I can’t argue against it.

11 Keller vs SD – Keeps sucking after his early season successes. I demand to know whose fault this is? Anyone want to chime in and tell me why Keller, who has as much speed and talent as any TE in the NFL can’t be a consistent producer? Anyone?

12 D Clark vs NO – I saw what he did last week , just in time for me to write him off. He won’t be a consistent producer at all and you can mark that down. Well I guess he will be consistently inconsistent this year which really makes him consistent. My brain hurts now , moving on.

SOME QUESTIONS

13 Cook vs Hou – The Houston front 7 has been surprisingly good this year. Flacco beat them last week like I believed he would but Dickson did not do much. Cook is lumped into the middle of the pack , but because of his big play ability and what he could mean for the Tennesse passing attack he gets the nod over some similarly valued TEs.

14 Dickson vs Jax – Great matchup and a great buy this week on fanduel.

15 Winslow vs Chi – The Bears are getting toasted by opposing TEs this year , Winslow’s problem is he is playing on 68 year old knees.. but he is a “warrior” – just ask him , he’ll tell you.

16 Kendricks vs Dallas – He has been coming on of late. But coming on for Kendricks means about 4 catches for 50 yards , when people are getting excited for that you know you haven’t lived up to the hype.

17 Boss vs KC – If every play was a fake punt he would be the number 1 TE in fantasy. Palmer helps his long term value , I love the guy.

I SCREWED UP MY DRAFT

18 Heath Miller vs AZ – Nice matchup , but the problem is it’s a nice matchup for every single other offensive player on the Steelers. For that reason I don’t start Miller this week.

19 M Lewis vs Bal – Will be better when the schedule lightens up and Gabbert will only improve from playing tough defenses like this each week.

20 Shockey vs Wash – I actually like him to make a play or 3 this week and if you are desperate he gives you some decent upside.

The Holy Grail – Week 6 QBs

Washington Redskins vs. New Orleans Saints at ...

Can't Stop This Guy!

Teams on bye week: Broncos, Titans, Chiefs, Cardinals, Chargers, Seahawks

MUST START

1 Rodgers vs STL – St Louis has limited yards this year , but has already given up 8 TD tosses and that was factoring in a week when they didn’t even play. Rodgers throws for a minimium of 3 TDs this week with potential for huge yardage.

2 Brady vs Dal – Brady has been held in check for two straight weeks but this will not be the case in what could be the biggest scoring game of the week.

3 Brees @TB – TB is in the bottom third of the league in pass defense and we saw what the Niners did to that defense last week. Brees can’t be stopped by a good defense let alone a defense that routinely gets burned deep.

4 Romo @NE – The worst pass defense in the NFL meets one of the most dynamic receiving corps in the league plus a stat hog QB. Cowboys will have no problem moving the ball in big chunks this weekend.

5 Vick @ Wash – Washington has been at the top of the league in pass defense this year , but Vick is not like most QBs. With their backs against the wall I simply can not envision a scenario that doesn’t end with a huge Vick day.

6 Stafford vs SF – Stafford was held in check last week , but that was something to expect since he was on too ridiculous of a pace. That being said he is at home against a defense that has been playing well , but they will still have no chance to stop that pass offense. Best should be held in check which means Detroit will have to throw it to win.

7 Cam Newton @Atl – the Falcons defense has been a huge disappointment this year giving up huge yardage numbers and creating no pressure or turnovers. The Panthers offense is clearly on the come up with Cam Newton, who is just a monster right now. Keep in mind thought that the early season passing yard numbers by Cam were flukey and he really bumps his points by running for TDs , which is killing Stewart’s fantasy value. The guy is a must start already though , and that is impressive.
