For most leagues, your team needs at least 110 points to have a chance of winning. You never want to concern yourself with what your opponent is doing, just aim to get to this number, hope for more and let the chips fall where they may. To reach this goal you will need (at minimum) 12 points from each of your starting skill positions (over 20 from your QB; more than a few from your kicker and at least 11 from your defense). This is the threshold for the IN/OUT predictions.

 

Here are the basic league settings in which we based our our predictions on…

Roster:
QB,2WR,2RB,TE,FLEX (w/r/t), K, DST
Settings:

TDs=6 pts0 pts allowed=10
passing=25 yds/pt2-6=7
receiving=10 yds/pt7-13=4

28-34=-1
35+=-4
Sack=2
INT=2
fumble=2
TD=6
safety=2
blocked kick=5
Return Yds=50 yds/pt

 

With all that behind us, here is the FANFOOD Fantasy Football 3 IN/OUT results for week 1 followed by a recipe for Grilled Potato Salad.

Shane Vereen began the game as the third-down back and occasional wideout, but, by game’s end, he was the team’s primary RB. He produced 101 rushing yards on 14 carries and had seven grabs for 58 yards.  That was the good news, the bad news is that Shane is expected to miss at least four weeks following surgery on his broken left wrist, a source told the Boston Herald. Vereen broke his wrist on the first play Sunday against the Bills.

 

Darren McFadden carried the ball 17 times for 48 yards and a touchdown in Oakland’s 21-17 Week 1 loss to the Colts. He also caught three passes for 18 yards. McFadden had a 30-yard touchdown reception called back at the end of the third quarter when the play was reviewed and officials determined that his second foot was out of bounds. McFadden was third on the team in targets, with five. A touchdown saved what was otherwise a tough day for Raiders running back Darren McFadden. He totaled 66 yards on 17 carries and three grabs. He would have had a second score from 30 yards out had he kept two feet inbounds on a fourth-quarter catch in the back-right corner of the end zone. McFadden averaged just 2.8 yards per carry, but with the TD and catches brought you over the 12 point hump and was another player that was a good “IN” pick.

 

Ahmad Bradshaw didn’t get a touch until the second quarter and had just four total touches until getting a series to himself in the third quarter. The drive ended with the Colts not converting a fourth-and-1 (Luck was sacked). he had seven carries for 26 yards in Sunday’s 21-17 win over the Raiders. Bradshaw caught one pass (off his only target) for seven yards.  He didn’t do enough and should have stayed on your bench as recommended.

 

Giovani Bernard had an underwhelming NFL debut Sunday against the Bears in Week 1, as he failed to push BenJarvus Green-Ellis for playing time. Bernard was just a bit player, finishing with five touches in the game. He had four carries for 22 yards in the game, as he was clearly the backup behind Green-Ellis, who had 14 carries. Bernard was also largely not a factor in the passing game, finishing with just one catch for 8 yards while being targeted twice. If you drafted him to be a starter, you will have to look elsewhere, for now.

Chris Givens was held in check Sunday, as Arizona played its safeties deep to neutralize him. He finished with two catches for 27 yards. “Obviously, with the big plays that Givens was able to create in the preseason we knew that they were going to come out and obviously be a little scared of that,” Jef Fisher said. “I thought that they played a little soft over him tonight, tried to take away those shots, but it just opened up everything underneath.” Jared Cook was the main beneficiary of the focus on Givens, as the tight end hauled in seven passes for 141 yards and two touchdowns. Patrick Peterson blanketed him. We suggested you start the playmaking WR, hope you didn’t listen.

 

Steve Smith picked up a touchdown against the Seahawks and although he only had 51 yards on 6 catches, the 3 yarder from Cam Newton in the second half put him over the threshold with more than 14 points. We thought you should bench him and he surprised.

 

The COLTS DST didn’t have the monster game everyone was predicting and if you streamed the defensive and special teams unit like we told you to, you were rewarded with about 7 points and a stat line of:
