Feast or Famine – Week 7

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.


Feast

Danny Woodhead, RB, San Diego

Fantasy Sharks Projection: 8 Points

Woodhead showed that he can be a viable fantasy option even when Ryan Mathews does well. Look for even bigger things this week against Jacksonville, especially in the passing game.

Alshon Jeffery, WR, Chicago

Fantasy Sharks Projection: 4 Points

Jay Cutler missed Jeffrey on multiple throws last week against the New York Giants. Start him with confidence against Washington, one of the worst defenses in the league. Jeffrey will be fine as long as Cutler is on.

Jerome Simpson, WR, Minnesota

Fantasy Sharks Projection: 3 Points

Although it may not be by much, Josh Freeman is an upgrade over Matt Cassel and Christian Ponder. Simpson has been involved each week while averaging almost eight targets per game.

Coby Fleener, TE, Indianapolis

Fantasy Sharks Projection: 4 Points

Fleener is his own worst enemy. The recent case of stone hands he developed has been annoying, but he has the best opportunity of the season this week against Denver. Tight ends with competent quarterbacks have shredded the Denver defense for years.


Famine

Joe Flacco, QB, Baltimore

Fantasy Sharks Projection: 24 Points

Flacco is a below-average quarterback and usually struggles against Pittsburgh. I expect this game to be an old-fashioned slugfest between these teams with Flacco putting up a line around 215 yards with a touchdown and an interception – his average game against Pittsburgh.

Eddie Lacy, RB, Green Bay

Fantasy Sharks Projection: 18 Points

Randall Cobb’s injury will boost Lacy’s fantasy value in the long term, but don’t expect much change this week. Cleveland has the seventh-best rush defense in the league.

Kyle Rudolph, TE, Minnesota

Fantasy Sharks Projection: 13 Points

Rudolph put up his first solid game of the season because Adrian Peterson had only 10 rushing attempts. Minnesota will have a much more balanced game this week and Rudolph will regress back into the fantasy wasteland.
