Leading you to the promised land each week.

Very important week for the WRs . The position is shaping up so get your research swag going and win yourself a game this week!

MUST STARTS

1 AJ @NO – You don’t bench him , should be the number 1 PPR WR each week regardless of matchup

2 Calvin @Min- see Andre Johnson , then add 1A PPR WR each week

3 Vincent Jacksonvs KC – Gates out , Floyd hurt , Jackson , Mathews and Tolbert will all be busy in the passing game -KC stinks

4 Roddy White @Tb – Big week a coming… ohhhhhhhh a big week is a coming – one of these weeks anyway , maybe this one.

5 Mike Wallace @Ind – This guy is a flat out monster right now – must start each week , fast , slick , wirey..lots of adjectives and a whole lot of superlatives.

6 Larry Fitz @Sea – You’re welcome for last weeks call when some writers jumped ship , lower expectation in SEA though only because of the whole ebbs and flows thing , unguardable.

7 Britt  vs Den – This guy is legit , Hasselbeck has been a boom for his fantasy value , he is ONLY 22 years old. WOW

8 Steve Smith vs Jax – Makes me puke in my mouth , but I do feel good for the guy because  he really deserved an actual QB after almost a decade of that slop they were throwing out there. – Yes he became a must start already

The Holy Grail – Week 3 RBs

Leading you to the promised land each week

MUST START

1 Rice vs STL – Great matchup and in PPR there is no better start.

2 AP vs Det – Any week he can score 4 tds. Him and Harvin are about all they have on that offense , should be great again this week.

3 Chris Johnson vs Den – Out on a limb , I think he puts it all together against a very beatable defense thats giving up 4.4 yards per carry

4 MJD vs Car – Looked half way decent there so far. Getting a lot of work which was never the issue with him , the issue is the bad offense and him wearing down. Carolina giving up 4.8 YPC as well.

5 Gore vs Cin – Cincy has done a very nice job vs the rush thus far and Gore has been bottled up in both games. Market correction coming as neither is indicative of what to expect going further , flood gates could be open for Gore in this game. —> BiG WEEK??!

6 Forte vs GB – GB has been stout against the rush thus far , but Forte will get his touches , and is a complete MONSTER in the catch game, better then ever in that facet this year.

7 Mccoy vs NYG – He beat them last year on a flukey touchdown. Giants were bottling him up all game until then , he will be wicked in the pass game this week , but I think he may find some tough running against the GMEN.

8 Mendenhall vs Ind – Great matchup , they won’t stop him , you won’t bench him anyway.

9 Mcfadden vs NYJ – Unstoppable force meets immovable object. Don’t expect him to pile up 150 yards , but should have a nice week as he not only gets volume touches but also is one of the most dynamic runners in the NFL right now.

The Holy Grail – Week 2 WRs

Arizona Cardinals wide receiver Larry Fitzgera...

Needs a Pro Bowl week to get back on track!

LEADING YOU TO THE PROMISED LAND THIS WEEK!

MUST STARTS

1 Andre Johnson vs Mia – After what he did last week and what Brady did to the MIA passing game last week , he belongs number 1 , especially with Mega nursing an ankle injury. Safe to say Miami’s passing defense was M. I. A. last week… keep reading , they get worse.

2 Calvin vs KC –  Great matchup , you are starting him , he is playing , he plays he most likely scores and always has a chance at an all time day.

3 Roddy White vs Phi – The matchup doesn’t scare me , he did not score last week , I think he scores this week and the Falcons will need to keep up with the Eagles , plus Ryan and the offense are always all systems go at home.

Larry Fitzgerald vs Wash – Nicks beat them pretty easily last week , Fitz should have no issues getting free and finding room , could be a sneaky high scoring game and he will give closer to what I expect out of him this year.

5 Greg Jennings vs Car – Another great matchup , Doucett burned them deep last week , Jennings is a lot better then Doucett , sometimes it is just that simple.

6 Mike Wallace vs Sea – Everyone scores in this game! Final score Pitt 84 Seahawks 2.

Miles Austin vs SF – Should do good here , Dez is banged up , Miles will be targetted heavily.

Vjax vs NE – Thanks for making me look like an idiot last week. Looking forward to what you have in store for me this week.

9  Marshall vs Hou – Great matchup , another potential shootout that could benefit Marshall’s volume work as he looked very good on MNF.

10 Djax vs ATL – Fast track , should be flying , next time don’t drop the long TD.

The Holy Grail – Week 2 TE’s

A picture of Washington Redskins TE Fred Davis...

Image via Wikipedia

I HAVE THE TE POSITION ON LOCK DOWN – READ TO WIN THE GAME!

MUST STARTS

1 Gates vs NE – Gates is the supreme TE in all the land. The Alpha , the Omega , the Kama Sutra? ANYWAY , has a great matchup with NE , which threatens to be a shootout. Fasano , who is not an Alpha Mega Sutra TE of fantasy dominated the matchup last week , expect Gates to be great.

2 Finley vs Car – Heap did not take advantage of a cushy matchup vs Car last week. But I believe Finley will explode this game. Rodgers should have looked his way more often , but Nelson picked up the slack and Jennings was on fire. Finley will show you this week why he is a stud and why you spent a 5th round pick on him in your PPR drafts.

3 Witten vs SF – Witten was solid as always vs a better defense than SF. Dez is banged up , Miles Austin should also have a very nice day , expect top end TE1 numbers from this fantasy football warrior.

4 Vernon Davis vs Dal – At home , should have to play catchup and is the only legit #megabeast in the passing game for SF. I am UNDAUNTED by his pedestrian showing last week. Vernon will be nice this week , he has to in order for them not to be embarrassed.

The Holy Grail- Week 2 QBs

Matt Cassell throws a pass. Patriots v. Bills,...

Image via Wikipedia

LEADING YOU TO THE PROMISED LAND EACH WEEK!

Must Starts

1 Rodgers vs Car – Great matchup, He torched NO last week. Carolina gave up Yards , 2tds and 0 int’s to Kolb , Rodgers is better than Kolb.

Vick vs ATl – Claimed to play lights out , this was not the case. Djax dropped what would have been a 50 yard TD too. But he still is the most explosive QB in the game , running and passing with a chance at 40 plus points every week.

Brady vs SD – SD made Mcnabb look putrid. They will have NO CHANCE to slow Brady down like that. He is a monster , a beast , a goon , a goblin… He ain’t bad.

Rivers vs NE – Another elite QB with an elite matchup. If Henne can throw for 400 plus yards , Rivers can throw for 700. Expect 300 and 3tds as a lock.

Brees vs Chicago – They gave Ryan trouble last week. Brees is better than Ryan  , you are starting him anyway, let’s move on.

6 Romo vs SF – Looked really good at times vs the Jets. Dez might be banged up , but Austin , Felix and Witten there still make this guy a top end QB1. SF recorded 5 sacks last week , but I do not expect them to get this much pressure on Romo who will pick them apart in ways Tjax could only do if playing as Romo in Madden ’12.

7 Stafford vs KC – KC got torched by Fitzpatrick. They are going to get torched doubly by Stafford , PLUS Berry is out for the season , Stafford could be huge , and Could be a top 3 QB this week but settles in behind the sure things with longer track records.

Out and Up: Week 2 Waivers

Chris Cooley was drafted in the third round of...

Cut the guy!

Tuesday is waiver days for most everyone in all fantasy football leagues. So every Tuesday I will release a new article detailing who I would throw out (cut) and who I would pick up (claim). None of this is set in stone , and every league and team should be treated differently. I am not saying to give up on all of these players , but what I am saying is if you needed to make room for another more promising and younger prospect , well it is safe to say goodbye to a player you may have loved previously. Do NOT make the mistake of holding on to an aging under performing player , there are ALWAYS early warning signs , read them and adjust. It could mean the difference between 6th place and a championship.

Out and Up : Week 2 waivers

QB

PICK UP

Henne– Looked real good , but the Pats looked bad again on defense. Keep your hopes realistic , but Henne just became a nice matchup play.

Newton – This is a testament to how bad the AZ defense is. Newton just had his best game of the season , but he does have a top WR that he has shown early connection with and that counts for something. There are a lot of QBs out there, but if you want to take a chance on Cam , I can not say it’s a bad move.

THROW OUT
