The Holy Grail- Week 7 QBs

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

MUST START

Whitehurst , charming his way into your lineup!

1 Rodgers vs Min – Aaron is the #1 fantasy qb in the game  and it is not even close. Minny can stop the run , but can’t stop the pass ; 300 yards and 3Tds is practically his floor every week.

2 Brees vs Ind – Indy can’t stop anyone on defense and Brees has been torching teams this season. With Colston back and Graham becoming the premier TE in the NFL you have to like his 30 plus point upside every week.

3 Romo vs Stl – The Rams are putrid on both sides of the ball. Bradford is going to be out which means run, run, pass, punt all game for this struggling team. You have to wonder how long before the buzzards start circling around Spagnulo. Romo goes off this game start all the Cowboy WRs.

4 Stafford vs ATL – Falcons are getting torched on defense this year and Roddy White looks like he got one too many targets last year as he clearly isn’t reaching the level he held in 2010. Best is out , and may be out for a while but Morris is a capable receiver and that just means Stafford will throw it more to his other check down options such as Pettigrew. Maybe Burleson rejoins the WR corp with the Best injury freeing up some targets elsewhere.

5 Cam Newton vs Wash – I said it last week and I will say it every week: Unless he rushes for at least 1 TD a week his passing numbers are going to be supremely average. That being said he is almost a good bet to run one in every week , but against a good tackling team like Washington he will need to use his arm more. All that being said , read and digested Cam is a must start on any fantasy team right now which is completely shocking to me.

6 Ben Roethlisberger  vs AZ – Arizona is putrid in the secondary since they traded Rodgers-Cromartie and Ben will be throwing it to whomever he wants whenever he so chooses. Antonio Brown makes for a decent play this week as all of the Steelers have a chance at some big numbers with Ben being the beneficiary of his WRs running loose all game.

7 Rivers vs NYJ – Vincent Jackson is back at full strength and Gates will be returning this game. Mathews is coming into his own and Tolbert offers a shockingly versatile skill set to complement this offense. Revis had trouble guarding Marshall last week because of his size and speed and Jackson is built almost exactly the same. Do not be afraid to start any of your chargers this week , even though the Jets still demand respect. Gates is the only one I urge caution on , for the obvious reasons.

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.
