WEEK 9 REVIEW

TAMPA BAY: Legarrette Blount will be a featured option and carries great value as one of the few non-committee backs in the league. While he did not score, he averaged 5.5 YPC and was the most effective weapon the Bucs had before going into pass mode. Also, buy low now on Mike Williams.  He continues to be the leader in targets for this team and is a good stash on the bench as the season wares on.

NEW ORLEANS: Same as they ever were, Darren Sproles seems to carry the most value in this high profile offense. He is a huge part of the run, pass, and special teams game. Avoid Meachem and Henderson, try to trade them while you can. They both combined for only 4 targets and don’t look to be dependable options the rest of the way. Lance Moore only posted 20 yards, but it was his second straight game with a score. If you are going to have anyone on this team outside of Graham, Sproles, and Colston, make it Moore. AvoidChris Ivory and Pierre Thomas. They will contribute, but neither is dependable.

NEW YORK JETS: Plaxico Burress continued his newfound chemistry with Sanchez and should grow into a bigger part of this offense. Since he was denied the score this week, buy low while you can if you can.

BUFFALO: C.J. Spiller had better be on your squad if you own Fred Jackson. He exited briefly this week with a neck injury and Spiller filled in well for the time being. It’s not a matter of if but when Jackson gets dinged up.

SEATTLE: If you have to own one guy on this team it’s Marshawn Lynch. He posted 135 yards with a score this week, but don’t expect this to be some sort of base line. Sell high on him while you can and get a need or more consistent back.

DALLAS: Miles Austin left the game with a hammy issue and it looks like this will be an on-going issue for him this year. Laurent Robinson makes an excellent pick up, snagging his 2nd score in as many games.

ATLANTA: Julio Jones had a monster day, but keep in mind it was against the Colts and all his production came in the first half. Sell high now and sucker someone into giving you a stud you need in your weak spot. Roddy is still the man here and had double (9) the targets than Jones (4).

INDIANAPOLIS: The only player worth having on this squad is Pierre Garcon. Reggie Wayne looks like he has either mailed it in or slowed a step due to age. The RBBC is something you should steer away from, and I don’t see Addai being the answer.

MIAMI: Yes, Reggie Bush is the real deal. He barely missed his third career 100+ yard rushing game (92) and is running the best he has since the USC days. Brandon Marshall caught his 2nd red zone score of the year but don’t buy into this. Matt Moore will not have too many more games like this and Marshall will pay for it. Sell high if able.

KANSAS CITY: Bill Muir abandoned the run game this week thinking he would be able to pass all over on the Fins and it backfired on him. Expect Jackie Battle to be more involved from here on out. Battle is among the top 5 backs in terms of rushing average per game since he won the starting job.

SAN FRANCISCO: Frank Gore is still the most reliable asset here. Gore finished with 114 total yards and no receiver surpassed 51 yards receiving.

WASHINGTON: Trade Helu and Torain if possible. Neither carries much value and Helu finished with only 41 yards on the day. If you have to start one roll with Helu but keep low expectations.

CLEVELAND: With Hillis missing up to 2 more weeks, there is not a soul you should own on this team.

HOUSTON: It looks like Kubiac will come to his senses and use Ben Tate more in order to preserve Arian Foster for the playoffs. Tate posted only 9 fewer yards despite 7 fewer carries and has great value as the season moves on.

CINCINNATI: Sell high on Cedric Benson if you can. He only has two 100+ performances and only 2 scores to date. The guy you want is Andy Dalton, whom has shown to be one of the most consistent quarterbacks out there.

TENNESSEE: CJ2K had one of his most productive candidates to date but I am still not buying it. If he can string together multiple games wit this type of stat line then we can trust him.

DENVER: Tim Tebow rushed for 117 yards this week but is still only a desperation play. Willis McGahee didn’t miss a step, finishing with 163 yards rushing and 2 scores. He is for real, and seems to have rejuvinated legs.

NEW YORK GIANTS: All the worry and boos for Brandon Jacobs can subside for one week as he finished with 72 yards and a score. He did exit in the 4th with an apparent leg injury.

PATRIOTS: Benjarvis Green-Ellis was omitted from the game plan due to his toe injury but seems to be the safest play at RB as a flex.

ST. LOUIS: Steven Jackson was asked to carry the load and Bradford showed some rust after missing several weeks. Wait on any movement until we know how this will turn out.

ARIZONA: Beanie Wells has been the most consistent player on this team. Early Doucet makes a solid WR you can depend on providing  WR #3 or Flex Play numbers.

GREEN BAY: Start all your Packers if you have them.

SAN DIEGO: Phillip Rivers will continue to throw often and is just now hitting his stride.

BALTIMORE: Ray Rice continued to take the goal line carries but ran into a stellar defense.

PITTSBURGH: Antonio Brown will continue to be the most targeted WR and is slowly taking the job of  Ward based on what we have seen the last few weeks. Trade Mendenhall if you can get any value out of him. Do not buy into the score last night. He is still a risky play.
