Each week in this space, I will review players who are ranked outside the top 150 for QB’s and TE’s and top 20 for WR’s in the weekly ESPN rankings. This will be who I think will flourish and who will disappoint in the upcoming week. I do not review those ranked higher since they are probably highly drafted and unable to be benched.
Russell Wilson (11)- He in my mind is a top 8 QB and gets a shaky Carolina defense.
Michael Vick (13)-I think he is going to go crazy in the Chip Kelly offense and ride him while healthy.
Joe Flacco (17)- The last time he saw Denver they had a ton of success, with no Von Miller, he should have a great day.
Darren McFadden (23)- Another guy to play while he is healthy plus he gets the Colts who have major issues stopping the run.
Ahmad Bradshaw (25)-He is practicing fully and will show the Colts what he gave the Giants and take this job and run.
Ryan Mathews (30)- We have all been burned by him in the past but I am all in this week against an overrated Texans defense.
Hakeem Nicks (22)- He did not look great bit gets an awful Cowboys secondary and he will not be any healthier than he is this week.
DeSean Jackson (27)-This matches up with my pick of Vick but as long as he is healthy I see a huge performance against a bad Redskin pass defense.
T.Y. Hilton (31)-I like the matchup versus the Raiders plus this year he explodes into a weekly WR2.
Fred Davis (15)-The Eagles showed a ton of holes on the defensive side of the ball which will be exploited by the Redskins with short safe throws.
Robert Griffin (11)-I think the Redskins play it very safe with him and he has a pedestrian game.
Lamar Miller (20)-There has been so much talk about a job share plus he is playing an underrated Browns defense.
Daryl Richardson (23)-The Cards defense is solid and Richardson has never carried the load, I do not see enough production to warrant a starting position in the fantasy world this week.
Eddie Lacy (24)-There is just no way I would start a rookie against the 49ers run defense, only way to get point is a lucky red zone carry or 2.
Mike Wallace (24)-Joe Haden will shutdown this one trick pony in a low scoring game.
Eric Decker (26)-This is where we see him losing targets plus playing the Super Bowl champ as a big underdog with a chip on their shoulder.
Steve Johnson (30)-The Patriots will double team and shut down the only real experienced receiving option for the rookie QB.
Martellus Bennent (14)-He will have issues getting free against a tough Bengals defense.
