Fantasy Start ’em
Cam Newton @ TB– Coming off a tough loss last week, the Panthers need every win they can get to make the playoffs. I expect Cam to make some big plays this week against a Tampa Bay defense who hasn’t been good against the pass this year. Cam is an elite QB1 this week for me.
Phillip Lindsay @ Cin – Cincinnati has been dead last against fantasy running backs. In the last 3 weeks they have allowed 460 rushing yards, 5 rushing touchdowns, and 107.1 fantasy points. Also worth nothing Lindsay over the last 2 weeks has 25 carries for 189 rushing yards and 3 touchdowns.
Amari Cooper vs NO – As good as the Cowboys defense has been, the Saints are going to put up a bunch of points on them. That being said, I expect Dallas to try to keep up. With their newly found weapon on the outside, Amari Cooper, they might just be able to keep it close. Expect Cooper to get a ton of work this week.
Eric Ebron @ Jax – The Colts offense is red hot right now, and Ebron is right in the middle of it. With Jack Doyle going to the IR, I expect Ebron to get at least one touchdown a game for the rest of the year. Let’s not forget the last time the Colts played the Jags, Ebron caught 2 touchdowns and ran for another one.
Fantasy Sit ’em
Ben Roethlisberger vs LAC– The Chargers haven’t allowed more than 8.2 fantasy points to opposing QBs in the past 3 weeks. They also haven’t allowed more than 19.5 points since week 3. I think Big Ben throws a couple picks in this game and won’t have a great week.
Tevin Coleman vs Bal – This is the 3rd week in a row where I’m telling you to bench Coleman and hopefully you’ve listened. In the last two weeks Coleman has 16 carries for 64 yards. The Ravens defense is number 1 against fantasy running backs. No thanks.
Jarvis Landry @ Hou – Houston’s pass defense has been really good this year and it seems like Landry isn’t a factor in the Browns recent success. Landry has had 5 catches for 52 yards in the Browns last two wins, so whatever they’re doing right, it doesn’t involve Landry much. He’s on my bench this week.
Jimmy Graham vs Ari – Graham hasn’t caught a touchdown since week 9 and he’s only got 2 this year. With a broken thumb ailing him, against a pretty good Arizona defense, I expect a disappointing game from the former stud.
