FANFOOD 3 IN/OUT WEEK 1

HIGH_HEAT2[300x250]

The FANFOOD 3 IN/OUT will be a quick and easy read to help you make that decision that has been bugging you all week.

Who to sit and who to start?

Check back here for information and my take on six players who can help or hurt your fantasy team in your matchup. This week also features a quick and strange (but good) blueberry crisp recipe.

 

First I have to give the premise. I am assuming your league starts (2) RBs (2) WRs & (1) W/R/T FLEX, to go along with the standard (1) QB & (1) TE. I will not get into kickers and defenses.

I also assume that the scoring is also pretty standard.

6 pts = TD (passing, rushing, receiving)
1 pt = 10 yards (receiving and rushing)
1 pt = 25 yards (passing and returns)
(-2) pts for every fumble and INT
.5 pts for every reception (PPR)

Based on the positions and settings above, your teams needs at least 110 points to have a chance of winning. Don’t ever concern yourself with what your opponent is doing, focus on your team and getting the most possible points each week. Just like you can’t control the weather, you can’t control your opponent.

To get to this number and above, you will need at minimum 12 points from each of your starters and a few from your kickers and defense. This is the threshold for my IN/OUT predictions.

Last piece of business before we begin. There are players that you will start every week unless they are injured. Players like Rodgers, Brady, Brees, Megatron, Foster, McCoy, Rice, Andre Johnson and some more are set it and forget it players. They may not score you the dozen you need some weeks, but count on it for many. They will not be mentioned here, hopefully you have at least one of these players, so I won’t include them. Here I will focus on your #2s and FLEX options.

Let’s get to it

 

FANFOOD 3 IN/OUT Week #1

Here are the players that will get you more than 12 points; and some that will be busts

 

Julio Jones @ KC

Matty Ice is ready to show the world if he is the QB to talk about with his new style of offense. Julio is his best receiver and probably a must start each week. Count on over 14 pts.

 

Brandon Marshall vs IND

I got a good feeling about the new “battery” in Chicago. The Colts defense is not that good and Cutler will carve them up at home. Expect Marshall to be the go to guy scoring more than 12 pts for your team.

 

Matt Forte vs IND

Forte is a great option this week and if he is your RB2 you are in great shape. I don’t think is a must start each week, but count on it in week1. 15 points is not out of the question.

 

Adrian Peterson vs JAX

You may have drafted AP as your RB1 and I hope you did it for the future not the present. I also hope you drafted his “Toby” my new phrase for handcuff. He will not play that much and will be a drain on your team. BENCH

 

Demaryius Thomas vs PIT

Ok I am biased here. I have him on my team and hoped he would be my every week FLEX starter, but I am going to wait until I see what he does on Sunday Night. I really think he is going to have a great year, but I think it starts week 2. I am expecting less than 10 points from him.

 

Maurice Jones-Drew @ MIN

He is back with the team, but don’t be that manager that thinks he should be back in your starting lineup. He is going to be in a third-down rotation in game 1. This means he scores less than 7 points.
