Fantasy Friday

Due to a recent resurgence in this blog, it's a shame to see none of the posts dedicated to the greatest fantasy sports of all-time: NFL football. A year ago, I would of said the NBA but seeing as how we'll most likely have a renegade players league for the years to come -- let's just say basketball is done (for now).

Since the fantasy football season is almost at its midway point, this section of the blog will be dedicated to the sick pick-ups/starts this week based on my limited knowledge of the sport.

Must pickups:
Tim Tebow - Last year, he recorded 6 rushing TDs on 7 games played. Out of the 7 games, he only started 3 of them. In his 3 starts, he averaged 20+ fantasy points per game (fppg). Last week, he beat Tom Brady in fantasy points while only playing half the game.

Earnest Graham - Blount is out for a couple of weeks and in a PPR league, Graham's been a good flex in a timeshare. Without Blount, you can get a couple of 20+ fantasy days from him against a bad against the run NO defense and a CHI defense that let Jahvid Best run for a career high/only 100+ yard rushing game of his career.

Darrius Heyward-Bey - When teams put their best corner on Oakland's rookie receiver, Denarius Moore, it gives you an idea of how bad DHB is. Look, I know he's already tied his career season high of 1 TD catch already. And if you're playing the law of averages, this guy is bound for about 2 fppg the rest of the year to match last year's. Regardless, this guy's got some chemistry with Campbell. (Don't worry Painter, you and Garcon's bromance is still #1.)

Jackie Battle - Why does love always feel like a battlefield, battlefield, battlefield.... Who doesn't love this guy? U of H in the house! This guy is a stud. Big, up-the-gut runner, winner of 2011 Peyton Hillis award? If you're not a believer, just watch the clip below. Even his QB loves him.

Bold prediction of the week: Garcon goes for <1 point this week.


Nice list for the week! You should add a list of drops too, top on my drop list: Knowshown Moreno. What a bum!

Graham and DHB paid off for me!
