Season to date: 16-12

 

Week 4 is the end of the beginning of the 2013 Fantasy Football Season. At this point in the season we can fairly sit back and judge what we have seen thus far and not call it an overreaction. This week pretty much stayed true to for in that we had a number of significant injuries to deal with, more big performances from guys like Adrian Peterson & Jordan Cameron and more failures from the likes of C.J. Spiller & Roddy White. Week 4 also saw more historic performances from Peyton Manning and the Broncos offense on the good side and from Blaine Gabbert and the Jaguars on the miserable side.

 

Week 4 quick notes from all the games:

  • Joe Haden is the best cornerback in the league with his skill and size.
  • Baltimore Ravens only ran the ball two times the entire second half. Rice was clearly not healthy
  • Andy Dalton can not lead this team to the next level with lack of skills
  • Mendenhall brings absolutely nothing in the running game and worse in the passing game
  • T-Rich was very average once again but did manage to find the endzone. He is NOT an elite player
  • The Texans exposed the Seahawks defense against the screen pass in this game
  • Cutler looks for Martellus Bennett A LOT when the Bears are in the red zone.
  • The Giants played without 3/5 of their starting offensive line. Until they are healthy this offense is terrible.
  • Le’Veon Bell isn’t an All-Pro RB but he sure looks like one compared to what the Steelers had before.
  • The injury to Jake Locker appears serious (he will miss at least 4-6 weeks, and possibly more depending on rehab) & the Titans will be forced to start Ryan Fitzpatrick going forward. Look for Justin Hunter to get more work here soon.
  • Matt Flynn wasn’t bad but just doesn’t give the Raiders the same threat offensively that Terrelle Pryor does.
  • Rivers continues to play at an elite level & has moved ahead of guys like Eli Manning & RG III at this point
  • Peyton Manning has set a record for most consecutive TD’s (16) without an INT to start a season
  • The Falcons need Roddy White to become a bigger part of the offense or sit him out until he can be

Now on to the results, followed by a recipe for Mini Chorizo and Black Bean Cream Burritos, perfect for your next football party.

 

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 staring 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 that we are basing our predictions on…

We told you to bench Hakeem Nicks and we were spot on as he caught just three passes for 33 yards in Sunday’s Week 4 loss to the Chiefs. Nicks crippled his team with three bad drops, including two on well-thrown deep balls from Eli Manning. It’s a disappointing effort after last week’s controversial comments. Despite being healthy and in a contract year, Nicks is pace for just 48 catches, 920 yards and no touchdowns.

 

We took a shot and told you to start Bilal Powell and he didn’t dissapoint and rushed for 66 yards on 14 carries and caught three passes for 42 yards in Sunday’s Week 4 loss to the Titans. Powell picked up chunks of yards with ease, but the Jets fell behind early and were forced to call 39 pass plays. Powell barely played in the fourth quarter but still gave you a nice amount of points.

 

A RB we recommended you bench was Chris Johnson. Hope you did, because he rushed for just 21 yards on 15 carries in Sunday’s Week 4 win over the Jets. Johnson was bottled up all day long, rushing for a long gain of eight yards. He barely played in the second half with the Titans up big. Johnson caught one pass for ten yards. After four games, the RB2 is on pace for just 1,108 yards rushing on 336 carries (3.3 YPC). Johnson has yet to find the end zone as he loses all goal-line work to Jackie Battle.

 

The FANFOOD DST of the week was the Indianapolis Colts. Entering week four, they knew they weren’t exactly facing the Denver Broncos. In fact, you could probably call the Broncos and Jacksonville Jaguars the exact opposite of each other. But, the Colts also knew that if they were to establish themselves as one of the NFL’s elite teams, they could not take the Jags lightly – and they certainly did not. Beating down Jacksonville 37-3 on Sunday showed exactly what the Colts should have done – win convincingly. Defensively, this group is one of the most underrated units in all of football. Through four games, the Colts are giving up an average of 11.75 points per game. That’s second to only the Kansas City Chiefs who also happen to be undefeated. Prior to the season, would you have believed anyone that told you the Colts would give up just 47 points through the first four games? Probably not.

This defense already has 13 sacks on the year and six interceptions. Robert Mathis is playing out of his mind with 7.5 sacks already on the year. On a unit missing Dwight Freeney, they appear to be just fine thus far (the current Charger is out for the year by the way). here are their DST stats for week 4:

We took a chance and told you to start Ryan Broyles because of the injury to Nate Washington. Broyles played 43 snaps and ran 22 routes in Sunday’s win over the Bears. Broyles played the slot role in all three-wide sets. But he somehow ended up with no catches on one target, losing the underneath looks to Brandon Pettigrew (seven catches on seven targets).  He may not be consistent enough to start on a weekly basis.

 

 

DeAndre Hopkins had a solid game in week 3 and with Andre the Giant hurting a bit he was thought to be a solid choice as a WR3 or even a FLEX play.  He had a stinker and caught just two passes for 27 yards in Week 4 against Seattle. The rookie was targeted just three times on the afternoon as he was held in check by Richard Sherman and Brandon Browner. Hopkins didn’t catch his first pass until there were 34 ticks left in the fourth quarter.

 

We told you to bench Ryan Mathews and he had his best game of the year. He rushed 19 times for 62 yards in San Diego’s Week 4 win over the Cowboys, and added four catches for an additional 41 yards. as said before, the 101 yards from scrimmage were a season high and Mathews’ four catches more than doubled his pre-Week 4 total. He still watched Danny Woodhead monopolize passing-down snaps and score two touchdowns, however. Mathews is averaging just 3.53 yards through his first 64 carries, and has only one touchdown.

Mini Chorizo and Black Bean Cream Burritos

 

Mini Chorizo and Black Bean Cream Burritos will be the hit of any party! These morsels are full of chorizo, tangy sour cream, savory black beans, fresh cilantro, zesty garlic, and salty cotija cheese stuffed in a warm flour tortilla. They’re simply irresistible.

 

INGREDIENTS

2 6-inch flour tortillas
1 cup cooked black beans
1/4 cup diced smoked chorizo
1 tablespoon Sour Cream
1 tablespoon Chopped Cilantro
1 teaspoon minced garlic
1/2 cup shredded cotija cheese
kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper

 

PREPARATION

Preheat oven to 375F. Char tortilla over an open flame on medium heat. Once tortilla puffs up flip and repeat on other side. Repeat with remaining tortilla. Set aside. Toast in a dry skillet if using an electric stove.

In a small bowl combine black beans, chorizo, sour cream, cilantro, and garlic. Mix until well combined. Season with salt and pepper to taste.

Using one tortilla at a time, add half the bean mixture to the center of the tortilla. Smooth across the diameter of the tortilla. Top with 1/4 cup of cotija cheese.

Fold left and right ends of tortilla towards the center, then roll up from the bottom (closest to you) and place on baking sheet seam side down. Repeat with remaining ingredients.

Transfer burritos to oven and bake for 10 minutes. Cut burrito in half and serve warm.
