Sorry about the slacking with 40oz postings, but we’ve been on a real bender of late. Here som helpful insight for Week 6
Phillip Rivers QB (San Diego): they have channeled their inner Air Coryell Offense in San Diego and lit the world on fire this season. Rivers is coming off two career weeks and I do not see him slowing down. Watch for him to air the ball out this week against an overachieving defense in St. Louis. Rivers is the man to lead them to victory now with a diminished running game in San Diego.
Ronnie Brown RB (Miami): time for the Dolphins to get the ground game going and Brown is the man to start them up. The Dolphins will be playing against the walking wounded in Green Bay and look for them to pound the front seven that is missing too many key pieces to slow them. Ronnie Brown is way too talented to keep playing so mediocre. Look for the Wildcat to be set loose this week.
Hakeem Nicks WR (New York): all he did was catch TDs early on this season, now he is becoming a dominant force in the Giants air attack. Nicks is slowly becoming the number 1 WR in this offense and has a great matchup in the Lions this week.
Mike Wallace WR (Pittsburgh): I know the rapist is making his first start of the season. I know he may be rusty from the start, but hear me out. Big Ben will provide the big arm Wallace needs to showcase his abilities. Wallace is a burner, and has shown this with Charlie Batch at QB. Charlie Batch!
Antonio Gates TE (San Diego): this is my lazy pick. I think I can place him here any week and look good. I am gonna put him here until he has a bye week. I may even then still keep him here during that week. Gates is gonna continue his dominance at this position. Look at all the skill positions in the NFL; TE is the only one where the number 1 player is that much better than all his counterparts. There is no 1a to Gates, he stands alone.
Brett Favre QB (Minnesota): he’s complaining about his elbow, he can’t keep it in his pants and the Vikings are falling apart. Keep him off your team right now. The Cowboys are more hungry and have looked better (not saying much) than the Vikings this year as these 2 teams have been the biggest disappointments of the seasons.
Peyton Hillis RB (Cleveland): I love the Beast as much as anyone, but this is the week for him to sit. He is going up against one of the best D’s in all of the land and has no QB this week. I saw an earlier report that Josh Cribbs may take plenty of snaps at QB this week. I wish that was a joke, but is an actual true statement. Hillis is a very good player, but has a terrible matchup. Sit him this week, but only this week.
Michael Bush RB (Oakland): not only is this a bad matchup against a pretty good run D in SF, but McFadden may be back so he will see his carries fall off as well. Bush is a good player, but not a good fantasy player when he is splitting carries. Keep Bush out of the lineup this week, or try to trade him for some value now while he is a hot player.
Dwayne Bowe WR (Kansas City): how can someone so talented look so terrible at times? He dropped 2 key passes last week that would have won the game for KC in Indy last week and has lost the trust of his team at this point. Bowe is so talented that this is such a frustrating situation for not only his team, but also for all of his fantasy owners.
