Feast or Famine – Week 4

Every week I will pick and choose certain players that will produce above (Feast) or below (Famine) our Fantasy Sharks Player Projections. A couple guys every week may be obvious, but some might surprise you.


Fred Jackson, RB, Buffalo

Fantasy Sharks Projection: 7 Fantasy Points

Either C.J. Spiller stinks or Doug Marone doesn’t know how to use him effectively. Either way, Jackson is the running back you want to start from Buffalo. He has been far more productive and has done it in all three games this year.

BenJarvus Green-Ellis, RB, Cincinnati

Fantasy Sharks Projection: 2 Fantasy Points

Are you tired of seeing Green-Ellis on the feast list? He is still getting more touches than Giovani Bernard every week and he even found the end zone against Chicago. Green-Ellis isn’t going to win you your fantasy week, but he is a fine bye week and/or injury fill in.

Cecil Shorts, WR, Jacksonville

Fantasy Sharks Projection: 6 Fantasy Points

A majority of Shorts’ production is coming in garbage time at the end of blowouts. We thought he might do better when Chad Henne was under center, which he technically did, but the switch back to Blaine Gabbert will have a minimal impact on his stat line. Jacksonville will most likely be losing (by a lot) which will allow Shorts to reap the rewards in garbage time again this week.


Andy Dalton, QB, Cincinnati

Fantasy Sharks Projection: 27 Fantasy Points

The Browns defense is legitimate and Dalton is not an elite quarterback. This game will be a low scoring slugfest as long as Brian Hoyer doesn’t turn the ball over on every other drive.

Michael Vick, QB, Philadelphia

Fantasy Sharks Projection: 25 Fantasy Points

John Fox hasn’t had any issues shutting down Vick in the past and that should hold true this week as well. The 33-year-old will get you some rushing yards, but Vick might be in for a bigger disaster than what we saw last week against Kansas City.

Josh Gordon, WR, Cleveland

Fantasy Sharks Projection: 16 Fantasy Points

I want to apologize for putting a third player from the Cleveland vs. Cincinnati game in this week’s article, but what we saw from Gordon last week is unsustainable. Cincinnati’s defense is far superior to Minnesota’s and it’s unlikely that Gordon receives half as many targets as he did in his 2013 debut.

Torrey Smith, WR, Baltimore

Fantasy Sharks Projection: 15 Fantasy Points

Smith has yet to find the end zone and it probably won’t happen this week, either. Buffalo’s defense isn’t anything spectacular, but Baltimore’s passing game is even more boring.
