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 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.

The Holy Grail- Week 3 WRs

Vincent Jackson, a player with the San Diego C...

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 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.
