Feast or Famine – Week 8

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

Andre Ellington, RB,
Arizona


Fantasy Sharks Projection:
7 Points


It’s anyone’s best guess as to why Rashard Mendenhall is still starting and getting a majority of the carries. Ellington is averaging 6.4 yards per carry and this week is the perfect matchup for a breakout game at home.

*******

Antonio Brown, WR,
Pittsburgh


Fantasy Sharks Projection:
7 Points


Brown is a target machine (10 per week) who can’t seem to find the elusive end zone. He is overdue.

*******

Rob Gronkowski, TE,
New England


Fantasy Sharks Projection:
14 Points


Gronkowski is clearly the only one that Tom Brady trusts. He may not get another 17 targets this week, but he’ll get the ball if Brady is throwing in the red zone.

*******

Jordan Reed, TE,
Washington


Fantasy Sharks Projection:
6 Points


Reed is emerging as the No. 2 option in the passing game and tight ends can’t ask for a better matchup. He won’t come down much from last week’s performance, if at all.


Famine

Michael Vick, QB,
Philadelphia

Fantasy Sharks Projection:
32 Points


Vick’s biggest drawback is his potential to leave games early and never come back in. He’s already less than 100 percent and is in for an average week despite the nice matchup.

*******

Adrian Peterson, RB,
Minnesota

Fantasy Sharks Projection:
18 Points


Minnesota is a mess from top to bottom. Unfortunately, Peterson feels the repercussions of being on a terrible team. He is productive when given enough touches, but temper your expectations.

*******

Andy Dalton, QB,
Cincinnati

Fantasy Sharks Projection:
21 Points


Dalton will come back down to earth against the New York Jets this week. It’s unlikely that A.J. Green will have a monster play this week that helped inflate Dalton’s numbers in the previous couple weeks.
