Only two weeks until fantasy playoffs begin. If you haven’t already, it’s a good time to review the schedules of your roster in Weeks 14-17 to see how you match up. There are still plenty of Shaun Hill‘s and Justin Gage‘s on the waiver wire. Start digging.
When using this list, try and remember a couple basic rules:
1) Studs – Always play your studs. Each position will include a list of players that are considered studs and should not be benched. If you have the luxury of needing to decide between studs, check out the matchups or feel free to let the shark tank assist you in your decisions. This list will change from week to week.
2) Depth – Every fantasy team is different and some have more depth than others. Only follow the recommended moves if your team depth allows you to make such a move.
Enough of the chit-chat, onto the list!!
Peyton Manning, Indianapolis at San Diego
Kurt Warner, Arizona vs. N.Y. Giants
Donovan McNabb, Philadelphia at Baltimore
Philip Rivers, San Diego vs. Indianapolis
Drew Brees, New Orleans vs. Green Bay
Jay Cutler, Denver vs. Oakland
Aaron Rodgers, Green Bay at New Orleans
Tony Romo, Dallas vs. San Francisco
Sage Rosenfels, Houston (at Cleveland): With Matt Schaub out until Week 16 at the earliest, the Texans offense is in the hands of Rosenfels who should have a much easier time finding open receivers this week against the Browns than he did against the Colts last Sunday. Look for both
Jason Campbell, Washington (at
Matt Hasselbeck, Seattle (vs.
Adrian Peterson, Minnesota at Jacksonville
Matt Forte, Chicago at St. Louis
Larry Johnson, Kansas City vs. Buffalo
Clinton Portis, Washington at Seattle
Frank Gore, San Francisco at Dallas
Ladainian Tomlinson, San Diego vs. Indianapolis
Brian Westbrook, Philadelphia at Baltimore
Willie Parker, Pittsburgh vs. Cincinnati
Joseph Addai, Indianapolis at San Diego
Marion Barber, Dallas vs. San Francisco
Steve Slaton, Houston (at Cleveland): Despite Ahman Green‘s two TDs last week, Slaton still posted solid numbers rushing for a season-high 156 yards against the Colts. Look for Slaton to become more involved in the passing attack as Rosenfels will spread the ball around well against the Browns. A score and 150 total yards is not out of the question for Slaton this week. Sounds like starting numbers to me.
Thomas Jones, N.Y. Jets (at
Andre Johnson, Houston at Cleveland
Reggie Wayne, Indianapolis at San Diego
Santana Moss, Washington at Seattle
Randy Moss, New England at Miami
Anquan Boldin, Arizona vs. N.Y. Giants
Larry Fitzgerald, Arizona vs. N.Y. Giants
Brandon Marshall, Denver vs. Oakland
Roddy White, Atlanta vs. Carolina
Greg Jennings, Green Bay at New Orleans
Calvin Johnson, Detroit vs. Tampa Bay
T.J. Houshmandzadeh, Cincinnati at Pittsburgh
Steve Smith, Carolina at Atlanta
Lee Evans, Buffalo (at Kansas City): I’m the first to talk about the inconsistency of Evans, but his zero catches this past week was all on Trent Edwards who looked just horrible. The Chiefs defense will be much more accommodating to Edwards, and Evans will reap the benefits. Look for Evans to surpass the 100-yard receiving mark for the fourth time this season in
Bobby Engram, Seattle (vs.
Owen Daniels, Houston at Cleveland
Dallas Clark, Indianapolis at San Diego
Chris Cooley, Washington at Seattle
Tony Gonzalez, Kansas City vs. Buffalo
Antonio Gates, San Diego vs. Indianapolis
Jason Witten, Dallas vs. San Francisco
