What’s up Colts Nation? So I’m going to try a different approach for my weekly fantasy football blog presented by Taco Bell. Typically I talk about the previous week and a little about the upcoming week. So for this blog, I am going to talk about the upcoming week as you can guess I didn’t have great success last week.
This is a great week for me! The only bad thing, aside from having a bunch of Patriots on my team, is that Houston is on a bye and their defense has been very solid for me this year. It seems like a lot of my players are facing favorable oppositions this week which should bode well for my squad. Below I’ve attached my starting lineup for this week.
I feel really strongly about Big Ben as my QB against a Redskins defense that is giving up a lot of points. I also thing this should be a good week for Ryan Mathews who faces the Browns. I picked up Martellus Bennett prior to last week’s game and he has been a steal so far. I think he will put up good numbers against the Cowboys this week.
Now for my “start em” and “sit em” picks of the week.
Week 8 Start em: I’m keeping this one at home. I’m going with Colts QB Andrew Luck. I think that he’s done enough to prove that he’s a legit fantasy starter in almost every league. I’m even hearing a lot of people say that he should be your fantasy starter for the rest of the year. That’s fine with me. The Titans have been giving up double-digit points to every QB they’ve faced this year and I think this week is no different.
Week 8 Sit em: I’m going with Michael Turner of the Falcons and here’s why… The Eagles have been rather stingy with their rushing defense, not to mention Turner’s carries have diminished lately, and add in that Matt Ryan is playing the best season of his career. I think it’s safe to sit him.
Week 8 Random Thought: I look for tight ends to have a big weekend for fantasy teams. There’s a lot of good tight ends out there playing teams with subpar short yardage and interior pass defense, so look to get some points from your tight ends this week and if you have two really good ones, do some research on if you should start the other one in the flex spot if your league allows that.
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)
