Feast or Famine – Week 9

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

Le’Veon Bell, RB, Pittsburgh

Fantasy Sharks Projection:
14 Points

The bad news: Pittsburgh’s offensive line was less-than-stellar before all of the injuries. The good news: New England’s defensive line is pretty bad; the front line of the league’s second-worst run defense. The best news: Pittsburgh wants to run the ball with Bell. This is a great matchup and he shouldn’t have any issues producing with his 15-plus carries.

********************************************************

Marshawn Lynch, RB, Seattle

Fantasy Sharks Projection:
9 Points

Lynch was non-factor last week because he only had eight carries. Seattle won’t make that mistake again.

********************************************************

Donald Brown, RB, Indianapolis

Fantasy Sharks Projection:
7 Points

Trent Richardson is not good. Brown is averaging twice as many yards per carry this season and he received just as many touches as Richardson against Denver last week. I’m starting Brown this week if I own both running backs.

********************************************************

Famine

Ben Roethlisberger, QB, Pittsburgh

Fantasy Sharks Projection:
24 Points

New England’s pass defense is solid. The Patriots are giving up an average of 216 passing yards per game and have more interceptions than passing touchdowns surrendered. They’ve had their fair share of injuries, but Pittsburgh’s pass offense is nothing special.

********************************************************

Chris Johnson, RB, Tennessee

Fantasy Sharks Projection:
17 Points

Johnson and
Shonn Greene

are headed for a full-blown time share in Tennessee. Johnson is averaging 3.2 yards per carry and he has been getting worse as the season progresses.

********************************************************

Torrey Smith, WR, Baltimore

Fantasy Sharks Projection:
17 Points

Cleveland shuts down opposing team’s No. 1 receivers all day long.
Marlon Brown

or Jacoby Jones might do alright, but Smith is in for a rough game.

********************************************************

Jeremy Kerley, WR, New York Jets

Fantasy Sharks Projection:
13 Points

New Orleans is sporting the fifth-best pass defense in the NFL. Kerley is unreliable to begin with and the New York Jets will attack this game with their ground game.
