Matt’s Week 13 fantasy

Matt’s Week 13 fantasy

This is it. Do or die time. Week 13 determines who gets into the playoffs and who doesn’t. It determines who is going to get the scrill. It determines who might just come in last place (“DFL” among my friends and I, figure it out) and have to rollerblade downtown in short shorts. Before I let you know the ultimate high risk-high reward guys, here’s who I’m rocking with this week.


QB: Luck be a Lady tonight                            FLEX: Crief

RB: DJ spin that shit                                       FLEX: The better Thomas reciever

RB: James “Tony” Stark                                 TE: Ertz

WR: 88                                                            D: Honestly do not care

WR: Demore Demaryius



Some teams will be in a position in which they have to score a zillion points if they want to grab a playoff spot. In my league, we have four teams competing for three spots. The last spot will most likely come down to the season long points total. This is the risk-it-all weekend for fantasy. Let me give you some boom or bust guys who can put you over the top if they hit.


QB: Matt Barkley. Against a decent Tennessee defense last week, Barkley through for over 300 yards and 3 tds in his first career start. He goes up against a porous San Francisco defense at home. It will snow in Chicago tomorrow which means defenses should struggle and points will be scored. If the USC man hits, he can give you over 20 points.


QB To Stay Away From: Carson Wentz. The guy has not put up over 20 points in a game this year. He won’t do it tomorrow either.


RB: Give me some Wendell Smallwood. Ryan Mathews is out again. Spoles is simply not a workhorse back. Philly does not want Wentz to have to throw the ball too often, as he is still a rookie quarterback. Cincinnati can be run on. Look for Smallwood to get into the end zone and end up with over 70 yards too.


RB To Stay Away From: Lamar Miller. If you have the guy, you probably have to start him. But, everything about this game screams fantasy disappointment for him. Green Bay played inspired defense last week at Philly and return home to continue the momentum. A reeling Houston offense meets a home team who is playing good defense for the first time all season. Ew.


WR: That’s it, I’m all in. Marquees Wilson. Start him. Chicago is injury plagued and forced to start both Barkley and Wilson. Those two spent plenty of time together on second string and that chemistry will continue on field this week. We saw it last week as Wilson posted 8 for 125 and a touchdown on 11 targets.


WR To Stay Away From:  Brandon LaFell. The guy has worse hands than a broken clock. I am just not a fan of his talent. Cinci is struggling and have given up on their season. Philly will be playing for their playoff lives. Start anyone else.


TE: I know Arizona plays well against tight ends but start Vernon Davis. You can probably get him off waivers too. With Jordan Reed out, Davis should see around 8-10 targets and a couple in the redzone. A touchdown is a likely possibility for the vet.


TE To Stay Away From: Greg Olsen. Truly, consider starting someone else. Since his awesome start, Olsen has fallen off a cliff. Seattle will be amped up and ready to go for a prime time game after their embarrassing loss to Tampa Bay.

where else can average dudes waste their time? : matt’s week 8 fantasy

I hate Fantasy. Last week, I dropped over 130 points in a ½ PPR league and I still lost. My opponent put up 150 and his team scored ten total TDs. Shoot me now, God. But, in the words of Lil Bow Wow: “I’m back at it like a crack addict out of rehab.” Here’s my line up for this week.


QB: Lucky Luck                                             Flex: Will Fuller House

RB: Best in the league (DJ)                             Flex: Michael Thomas

RB: Best on his tea (Gio)                                TE: The guy on the Texans with the long name

WR: Dez “Welcome Back” Bryant                  D: Titans

WR: D. Thomas


Some major changes. Dez is back and I am playing him. If Dak can make Cole Beasley a star…Will Fuller makes an appearance. I hate the Brock Lobster but, this game against Detroit should be a shootout. Michael Thomas is arguable the best receiver on his team. The Seahawks secondary has been awful lately and they are missing some pieces. I like Brees as home as well. I switched Zach Miller for anyone else because Miller takes on the Vikings. The Titans D was a steal for about 50 minutes.


Waive Wire Gems:


Need a player for upcoming bye weeks? I got them for you. Is your team set and you are looking for that one stash that will get you through the playoffs? I got you.


Chris Thompson:

Love CT as the season rolls on. Matt Jones is a fumble away from losing some serious touches. The Redskins will be an RRBC before the season is over. The one to own is Chris Thompson. He has an excellent YPC and is the pass catching back. Games against Dallas, Green Bay, Philly, Carolina and Arizona could all see a script in which Thompson has a lot of involvement. Expect both his carries and targets to go up.


Thomas Rawls:

Forgot about him? Most of us did. Do yourself a favor and look at his numbers last year. When healthy, this guy was a major talent. He will split carries with Christine Michael, sure. But, Rawls has a track record of success. Stash him on your bench. There is a scenario in which Pete Carroll returns to Rawls towards the season’s end.


Kennith Dixon:

This draft and stash candidate has been a bust so far. Fortunately, it has been reported that the Ravens want him to get more involved. West has been dominant so far however, this will be the most work he has ever seen in a season. We saw Mark Ingram get injured last year because he faced an unprecedented workload. Dixon is a great handcuff. Also along the lines of handcuffs: Robert Kelly, Kapri Bibbs and Tim Hightower.


Mohamed Sanu:

After the week one explosion, Sanu has come back down to Earth. He is not owned in over 50% of leagues. Julio Jones is perpetually questionable and could miss a game later on in the season as the Falcons look towards the playoffs. Sanu will be a guy who wins you a game and could push you into your own Fantasy playoffs.
