THE FIRE SALE: Week 11

The country is in an uproar. People are mad as hell. They don’t like the way things are and they’re demanding change. My advice is to shut up. Stop you’re crying. Stop you’re bitching and moaning. Stop whining on social media. This is the way things are now. Deal with it.

The Dallas Cowboys are the best team in the NFL. All is right with the world. What did you think I was talking about?

Now on with The Fire Sale

Going Up

James Starks, RB Packers – Starks is one of those good news, bad news players. The good news is he’s really the only show in town. He should start seeing 15+ touches a game now that he’s healthy. The bad news is there isn’t a more below average running back in the NFL that’s had a job longer than Starks. He’s the Jeff Fisher of running backs. The Packers defense is also so bad right now Green Bay may have to abandon the run most weeks. I picked up Starks in a couple of leagues because I was starting trash like Jacquizz Rodgers. So my advice is if you’re starting trash, pick up Starks. He’s slightly better than trash.

C.J. Prosise, RB Seahawks – The Seahawks finally featured Prosise Sunday night and he delivered. Prosise led the Seahawks in both rushing and receiving against the Patriots. He ran the ball 17 times for 66 yards. Prosise added seven receptions for 87 yards. Thomas Rawls is expected to return this week and Christine Michael’s fantasy value is on life support, but Prosise is the Seahawks back to own going forward. Prosise finally gave the Seahawks running game some life. He should be this week’s top waiver wire target.

Cameron Brate, TE Buccaneers – I predicted 60 catches and seven touchdowns for Brate back in August. I sold him short. He’s currently tied for the NFL lead for most touchdowns among tight ends. Now if I didn’t tell you to draft Tyler Boyd and Chris Hogan too, I would have really gone out on a high note.

About Thomas Casale

Thomas began playing fantasy football back when owners had to mail in their starting lineups and work out trades over the phone. He started writing The Fire Sale in 1998. Since then his articles have appeared on numerous web sites sites including Fantasy Sharks, USA Today and SI.com.
