Inspector’s Go-Go Fantasy Football C-C-C-Combo Breaker…WEEK 5
Ladies and gents, kids and adolescents: Welcome to the Inspector’s Week 5 fantasy Combo Breaker.
Was I right last week? On everything except John Kuhn (except the Pack just really didn’t run the ball, but he still had a good YPC) R. Mendenhall (but did you think I was serious?), and Matt Ryan, but the birds still one so I was happy.
Must starts: P. Manning, D. Brees, A. Rodgers, P. Rivers, M. Schaub
Bye-Week-Busters: Caution: These are risky, but could help you with potential big games on your QB’s bye week… E. Manning, M. Ryan, K. Orton.
Ride the Pine: J. Flacco…I’m still not buying it. Kevin Kolb…really? Why don’t you like DeSean Jackson? So until you throw it to him, I will keep you here.
Must Starts: F. Gore, P. Hillis (surprising, but he is getting it done on that crappy team, what makes you think he would stop?), A. Foster, M. Jones-Drew, A. Peterson.
Borderline: C. johnson…well, he won’t do what he did last year, but still could have a monster game. M. Forte…with Cutler out, look for more rushing, but no promises here. S. Jackson…is his groin hurt or not? who knows. P. Thomas…another injury doubting Thomas, but if he can play I project at least 11.
Pick Him Up: R. Torain (WSH)…with Portis out, look for Torain to take the bulk of the load and honestly he is explosive, elusive, and if given any space, he may surprise you. And for what it’s worth, I’m starting him on this bye-week. L. Blount…no sucker punches here, unless you mean the goaline…with the Head Coach in Tampa wanting him to get more carries (especially on the goalline) he might eak out 10 or so. But success here will result in more carries. Muy Bueno.
Ride the Pine: Brandon Jackson…the most disappointing no 2 besides….Shonn Greene…awful. Chris Ivory…he bad.
Must Starts: D. Jackson, R. Wayne, R. White, C. Johnson (welcome back, kid), H. Nicks, A. Boldin, G. Jennings
Borderline: J Maclin, M. Colston, L. Moore (look, don’t put much stock into him now that he has been targeted so much for 2 straight weeks), S. Moss…wow, way to go D. Mcnabb. D. Driver…in the flex, good for 9-10 a game.
Pick Him Up: Brandon LLoyd, if you haven’t already. M. Thomas (JAX)…since Mike Sims-Walker is such a no count bum, this is Jax’s no 1 WR right now and if Gar-tard can get it to him, look for decent numbers.
Ride the Pine: Mike Sims-Walker (what is it wiht Jax and hyphenated names?). L. Evans…really Buffalo, really? P. Garcon…Whiskey Tango Foxtrot.
Must starts: Antonio Gates, Tony Gonzalez, Jermichael Finley, Dallas Clark, Dustin Keller.
Borderline: Z. Miller, G. Olsen, B. Celek. Are their teams good enough to get them the ball enough to make an impact? Maybe, Maybe not….
Ride the Pine: J. Shockey, V. Shiancoe, T. Heap.
Good luck and God’s Spead,
Big Pay league: 2-2 (but lost both by a combined 6 opts)
Small Pay League: 2-2 (I’m receiver heavy and Shonn Greene is killing me)
