What’s up Colts Nation!? It’s a great day to talk about some fantasy football and that is exactly what we’re going to do! There are some big games this weekend and some even bigger fantasy matchups.
Last week I witnessed what I watched opposing teams’ fans witness for 13 years. Peyton Manning single handedly beating your team while all you can do is sit there and watch. I headed into Sunday night’s game between the Broncos and the Saints with a 10 point lead. All I needed as for Marques Colston to not let Manning score 10 more points than him. Well if you saw any of the game you saw that Peyton put up 28 fantasy points. That one was a tough one to swallow.
So I head into this week’s matchup with a bit of optimism aside from a majority of my team being on a bye this week. But that stuff happens so I have to keep fighting and hope to pull out a victory.
Now for my “start em” and “sit em” picks of the week.
Week 9 Start em: I think that Brandon Marshall would be my start for this week. The Bears head down to Nashville to battle the Titans and I think this will be an opportunity for Cutler and Marshall to get back on the right track. Look for Marshall to put up big points this Sunday!
Week 9 Sit em: I’m going with Larry Fitzgerald on this one. He’s yet to be a stellar WR this year and has only put up 70 points in my fantasy league. They play the Packers who have been rather stingy in terms of wide receiver yards (minus that Reggie Wayne guy) and I think the same continues this week. Not to mention the Cardinals QBs haven’t exactly been great so far this season.
Week 9 Random Thought: This is a really random one, but I’m not a big fan of starting players that face the Colts. I decided to let go of Brian Hartline this weekend because he’s on the Dolphins and they’re coming in here. Not that I thought he was going to do anything special, but just because it doesn’t feel right starting a player against your team. So he’s not on my team any more.
That’s it for me today; don’t forget to check out my homepage on Colts.com to see what I’ve been up to! (Especially my tailgate videos)
Yours in Football,
