Hamilton Who? Barber/Benson a go?

Sorry I haven’t posted recently. I am having fantasy fatigue.  I have to pace myself or I will not get through the year. Went to Atlantic City and gambled and drank till dawn. I feel much better today. Who is this cat Lynell Hamilton? An undrafted rookie who might be starting RB in the NFL? For this week at least. Lynell better make the most of the spotlight. Mike Bell and Pierre Thomas are still banged up. Thomas might go but he will be limited. All this RB chaos in NO is great for Reggie Bush. Bush isn’t an every down back but the ball is still put in his hands often. Reggie Bush is my play of the week. Lynell Hamilton is my desperation fantasy play of the week. I have a good track record with my desperation plays considering I picked Pierre Garcon last week.

Cedric Benson is a go this week but I would not start him unless you have NO other option. Benson is playing Pittsburgh and we know how good Pittsburgh is.

Marion Barber is a tricky play. He did practice today and he is pushing hard to come back from this quad injury to play this week.  Either he plays and is limited or he sits out and Felix Jones starts. I bench Barber and start Jones. It’s the safe and smart fantasy play.

People are flocking to Johnny Knox, WR Chi, off the waiver wire. There has been some talk out of Chicago that Bennett might lose his starting job. I don’t believe the hype. Bennett will  start. I’m not feeling Knox and I’m the WR guy. He has big play potential but he is a rookie and I haven’t seen him worked into the offense enough to feel comfortable picking him up. He has put up good fantasy numbers but I just don’t think he is the real deal.  I know Chicago went out and got “big gun” Cutler but for that team to be successful they have got to get the ball into Forte’s arms more often. Chicago is constructed as a run first pass second team. Forte will bounce back this week against a soft Seattle team. Look for him to ring up 2 TD’s this week and end the drought.

Sproles is a great play again this week against Miami. LT is still out and won’t play this week.

Hope this fills the fantasy void for all my Flukie Followers! Any match up questions feel free to post to this article or email me in the contact us section. Till tomorrow Flukesters!
