Happy belated turkey day everyone. As most everyone was yesterday I was hugging the TV with a big plate of turkey, gravy, stuffing, and dinner rolls watching the Titans dish out the punishment to the Lions. I would have wrote this piece yesterday but I am afraid my computer keyboard does not like pumpkin pie. I looked like Frank Caliendo yesterday before the Dallas and Seattle game. Henry the eighth like with a turkey leg in one hand and a beer in the other. Yesterday was simple as far as picks go, you knew the Titan's would run all over the Lions, you knew Dallas would destroy Seattle, you thought the Arizona/Philly game would be high scoring game. Not a bad day for Warner but he really blew it, Westbrook was the star 2 receiving and 2 rushing Td's. A 2 week span back from injury and he blows up. If your lucky you got a big jump on your opponents. If you are unlucky then you have got some ground to cover much like my opponents do this week so let's get to it.
Tyler Thigpen - Consistently making his way up the fantasy Qb depth chart, unlike any we have seen in KC before, with the exception of Montana of course. He thrives in this situation, he has made the offense of KC great even though Larry Johnson is bad. This week he draws the Raiders who have 1 good corner and he has more passing options, Definite start this week he has consistently posted double digit numbers the past 4 weeks.
Brett Favre - Not only are the Packers profiting from the last 2 weeks assuring the Jets of a playoff spot, because they get a 2nd round pick. Fantasy owners have been profiting, not the same Favre over the last two weeks very consistent not to many interceptions he deserves a chance here.
Lance Moore - Bar none the #1 target in NO even with Colston there, Colston may not be 100% but this guy is the show stopper a touchdown in the last 2 weeks and over 100 yards receiving you gotta play him.
Darren McFadden - Laugh if you must, but if you have held on to him this long without production, your not laughing. Kansas City Defense, Is the worst defense I have seen in nearly 10 years. If Fargas doesn't slay them McFadden will.
Leron McClain - If your looking deep this week and you need a guy that has the possibility of a great game or 3-4 points, It is all about McGahee but it should be about McClain.
Steelers Rb's- Not easy to run on the Patriots this will be an air show.
Patriots Rb's - See above..
Jay Cutler - Last couple of weeks he has had ok games but his turnovers draw him down to nothing, Thigpen would be better and Cassel would be better.
Dwayne Bowe - remember that corner I was talking about when on the Thigpen subject, well he is Nnamdi Asomugha and he will be attached to Dwayne Bowe's hip.
Derek Anderson - Only four passing touchdowns have been scored on the Colts this year and the Browns are not the type of team to make it 5.
Pickups - Pretty much my usual rant.
Matt Cassel - Not Brady, but not that damn bad.
Leon Washington - Have you watched a Jets game lately?
Mark Bradley - When D Bowe draws the Great corner who does the ball go to?
Bo Scaife - Who's Alge Crumpler?
D/ST: Miami- Rams are bad!!!!!!!! need I say more?
That is it for this week, enjoy your leftovers and stay tuned to FFCollective for all your latest news and fantasy advice. DivineGuru out. Gobble!!
