A look at Week 1 fantasy action, including rankings at each position, sleepers and busts. And, of course, a couple random quips about other goings on in the world of make believe football.
Already, I am getting blasted. One game into the NFL 256 game regular season schedule, I am being told it time for me get a new day job. guys, all the experts liked Bernard Berrian last night. Well, maybe not all of them. OK, OK, not many of them.
I going to make mistakes. Ask the other 19 guys in the Finks Football League, a league of which I have been commissioner for the past 21 seasons. They tell you I often make mistakes.
Yeah, yeah. To heck with I not promising you a title, what I am promising is that my weekly predictions don come without a ton of studying. I won get every ranking correct, but I do my best.
And I have a lot riding on the line, starting this week in our Experts vs. Readers league.
While it not the championship, it is for bragging rights, since it will be our only meeting of the season, barring an encounter in the playoffs. If you like to follow the league, go to our league, and see if we make the right moves.
Let get to the rankings and see if I can get this straight. Then, hopefully, maybe my friend who shouldn have drafted Mr. Berrian in the first place will give me another chance.
1. www.officialhockeyauthentic.com/womens-youth-pascal-dupuis-authentic-jersey-c-1_381_400.html Jerome Harrison, RB, Cleveland at Tampa Bay
Last year, the Bucs had the worst rushing defense in the NFL. Can see it being all that much better this year, and Harrison could easily become a sure thing this year, especially with Montario Hardesty out for the season.
2. Kareem Huggins, RB, Tampa Bay vs. Cleveland
Here another pick I like not only for this week, but possibly all year. The Bucs didn just cut Derrick Ward because of his preseason play, but rather, Huggins proved he derved a shot to be Cadillac Williams primary backup. He Jaromir Jagr Youth Jersey could get 10 to 12 touches Sunday.
3. Santana Moss, WR, Washington vs. Keep a close eye on him this week and how often he targeted, for if he www.officialhockeyauthentic.com/womens-youth-chris-kunitz-authentic-jersey-c-1_381_383.html becomes available in trade possibilities, you might want to buy before his stock rises too high.
4. Kenny Britt, WR, Tennessee vs. Oakland
There no doubt Jeff Fisher is going to try and take some of the load off Chris Johnson. That means Vince Young will look to throw a bit more, and Britt is going to be his No. 1 option. That should start this week.
5. Jermaine Gresham, TE, Pascal Dupuis Authentic Jersey Cincinnati at New England
The Bengals have never been a team that often utilizes a tight end, but they didn use a first round pick on Gresham just so he could block for Carson Palmer. This offense should be flying a little higher, especially against the Patriots in Week 1, and the rookie should be a big part of it.
Don get me wrong, I love this guy for the season. But in Week 1, while the team tries to figure out how to fit in LaDainian Tomlinson, and with a tough matchup agianst www.officialhockeyauthentic.com/womens-youth-jaromir-jagr-authentic-jersey-c-1_381_401.html the Ravens defense,if you have a better option, use it.
2. Mike Wallace, WR, Pittsburgh vs. Atlanta
The Falcons are no pushover on defense, and the Steelers are going to struggle a bit offensively until Ben Roethlisberger comes back from his suspension. Quarterback Dennis Dixon could be a nice player in the future, but it will take a while. Expect the Steelers put extra emphasis on the running game early on.
3. Laurence Maroney, RB, New England vs. Cincinnati
The oft injured running back is having trouble once again. This time, it his thigh, and he not exactly going to find Bill Belichick good graces this way.
4. Wes Welker, WR, New England vs. Cincinnati
The antithesis of Maroney, Welker is a guy who probably would play even if they cut off one of his arms. Still, he readily admits he not 100 percent coming off the ACL injury, and chances are he won be for some Chris Kunitz Authentic Jersey time.
5. Owen Daniels, TE, Houston vs. Indianapolis
Daniels is in a similar situation as Welker, although his season ending ACL injury came in November. Still, it doesn appear as if he will be a huge part of the offense for at least a few weeks.
