Turkey for me
Turkey for you
Let’s eat the turkey
In my big brown shoe
Love to eat the turkey
At the table
I once saw a movie
With Betty Grable
Eat that turkey
All night long
Fifty million Elvis fans
Can’t be wrong
Turkey lurkey doo and
Turkey lurkey dap
I eat that turkey
Then I take a nap

Thanksgiving is a special night
Jimmy Walker used to say Dynomite
That’s right
Turkey with gravy and cranberry
Can’t believe the Mets traded Darryl Strawberry
Turkey for you and
Turkey for me
Can’t believe Tyson
Gave that girl V.D.

White meat, dark meat
You just can’t lose
I fell off my moped
And I got a bruise
Turkey in the oven
And the buns in the toaster
I’ll never take down
My Cheryl Tiegs poster
Wrap the turkey up
Turkey and sweet potato pie
Sammy Davis Jr.
Only had one eye

Turkey for the girls and
Turkey for the boys
My favorite kind of pants
Are corduroys
Gobble gobble goo and
Gobble gobble gickel
I wish turkey
Only cost a nickel
Oh I love turkey on Thanksgiving

Depending on your league settings, chances are that you have some kind of combination of the above for your starting lineup. These are the top options for this week and it is hard to make a case to bench any of them. It’s when you get into the players not on this list where it gets tricky.

For most leagues, your team needs at least 110 points to have a chance of winning. To get to this number and above, you will need at minimum 12 points from each of your starters (a little more from your QB and a few from your kickers and defense). This is the threshold for my IN/OUT predictions.


Houston at Detroit – 12:30 pm ET

It sure is nice to know that we can at least expect a competitive game from the Lions each year on Thanksgiving…at least for now. Nevertheless, I think the Texans will win the day. After what we saw from Houston last week this could be a shootout. Let’s hope it is!

Start: Schuab, Foster, Johnson, Stafford, Megatron


Washington at Dallas – 4:15 pm ET

The Redskins, led by RGIII, looked like the team we saw in the first three weeks of the year, at least on offense. Look for an injured Cowboys front seven to give up a fair amount of yards. The Redskins should be happy with that as it will be difficult to pass on Dallas’ new elite secondary. I am bracing for a Washington upset (if you could call it that) over Dallas.

Start: RGIII, Romo, Jones, Austin, Bryant, Witten


New England at New York Jets – Thur. 8:20 pm ET

With the way New England has been playing, even without Gronk, they should win convincingly over the Jets. Again there is speculation about Tebow starting at QB. Who cares? If the combination of tryptophan and eggnog don’t put you to sleep then a Pats blowout over the Jets will.

Start: Brady, Ridley, Welker, Keller






T.Y. Hilton vs. BUF

Hilton has gone over 100 yards receiving in two of his last three games and has scored three touchdowns during that span. With a high-scoring affair on tap versus the Bills and Donnie Avery looking like he’ll miss this week with a concussion, Hilton should see plenty of targets.


Jalen Parmele vs. TEN

Parmele is getting the chance to start for the Jaguars, and he should be considered at least a flex option this week. Parmele was the featured rusher for Jacksonville last week ahead of Rashad Jennings at the Texans. This week he gets the Titans who have allowed 10 touchdowns to opposing running backs and nine to reach double digits in Fantasy points. There have been 10 running backs to face the Titans this year that have gotten at least 12 carries, and eight have either 100 total yards or a touchdown. It seems like Parmele will easily hit that carry total, which makes him worth the risk this week.


Steve Johnson @ IND

The Colts have struggled with opposing receivers as they have allowed 14 touchdowns and 12 have reached double digits in Fantasy points. No. 1 receivers have really excelled against the Colts with six getting either 100 receiving yards or a touchdown, and Johnson has actually played well of late. He has 12 catches for 165 yards in his past two games against the Patriots and Dolphins on 18 targets, and if he can find the end zone again like he did in his first three games then his value will rise.





Mikel Leshoure vs HOU

The Texans have yet to allow a rushing touchdown this season and will be looking to atone for their shoddy defensive effort last week versus the Jaguars. This means Mikel, “Don’t call me Micheal” is a turkey this week.


Josh Freeman vs ATL

Freeman has at least 20 Fantasy points in six games in a row, but he’s struggled against the Falcons in his career. In his past five meetings with Atlanta, Freeman is averaging only 13 Fantasy points a game with seven total touchdowns and 11 total turnovers over that span. Brees and Cam Newton are the only quarterbacks to score multiple touchdowns against Atlanta this year.


Mike Wallace @ CLE

Wallace will have his third different starting quarterback in the past three weeks with Ben Roethlisberger (shoulder/ribs) and Byron Leftwich (ribs) both out, and Charlie Batch throwing passes to Wallace isn’t very promising. He also is expected to see a lot of Joe Haden, who has the chance to frustrate Wallace. In two games against the Browns last year mike combined for five catches for 68 yards. Not a good sign for Mike “60 Minutes” Wallace.




Shrimp and Avocado Stack



16 Jumbo Shrimp,cooked peeled, deveined, tails left intact

1 red pepper
2 avocados, diced
1 roma tomato, seeded and chopped
1 Cayenne pepper, finely chopped
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1 tablespoon chopped cilantro
1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
2 teaspoons diced red onion
4 teaspoons chilli oil
2 tablespoons olive oil
2 garlic cloves, chopped

basil oil:
1 handful basil leaves
1/2 cup) olive oil



To make the basil oil, blanch the basil in boiling water and refresh in iced water. Strain the water off and ring out in a clean tea towel (dish cloth) to remove all moisture. Blend with oil in a blender and season to taste.
Preheat your grill to hot. Cook the pepper on a hot barbecue grill, turning occasionally, for about 15–20 minutes or until the skin turns black. Remove from the barbecue and leave to cool. Peel, seed and remove membrane, then finely

Mix the avocado, tomato, peppers, lemon juice, coriander, olive oil, onion and sea salt and cracked pepper in a bowl.

Place a large cookie cutter on 4 serving plates.

Divide the avocado mixture into 4 portions and place in each cookie cutter. Remove the cutters. Drizzle some of the basil and oil around each plate. Add the garlic, some lemon juice and olive oil. Place the shrimp onto the avocado stacks and serve immediately.
