The Fantasy Dudes went 2/3 in their Tebow Talent Time predictions this week. Forte struggled against a hungry Giants D (wow, 9 sacks in the first half), and whilst Tolbert rushed for more yardage, Matthews still managed 55 yards on 9 carries and 1 TD, his first of his career. The star (and indeed start) of the week was LT, who continues to repay the Jets for throwing him a lifeline after an up and down couple of seasons with the Chargers… he and Greene totally dismantled the Bills defence, as Tomlinson piled up 155 yards from scrimmage, and accounted for 2 TD’s.
In light of the recent injuries, here are a few players to target off the waiver wire this week:
Kevin Kolb: Remember, he was given the starting nod ahead of Vick to begin the season. 200 yards, 1 TD after replacing Vick in the game. Keep an eye on Vick’s status, especially if you need help at QB.
Mike Tolbert: Should there be a reoccurrence of Matthews’ injury, then you know you have an adequate replacement. At the very least he should be a handcuff for all those owners of Matthews. 100 yards rushing ,1 td.
Ryan Torain: Strong performance this weekend with 70 yards rushing, 1 TD on 18 carries. Surely the writing is on the wall for Portis (reported a groin injury). Shanahan loves his RB’s!
Danny Amendola: Whilst his stats aren’t a standout, he is quietly getting the job done with 21 receptions for 208 yards. As
Landell Betts: With the injuries to Bush, and most recently Thomas, Betts was throw right into the deep end, and he responded, posting 70 all purpose yards (however no endzone success). It is also worth keeping a tab on Chris Ivory.
John Carney: He’s back!!! The 46 year old kicked the winning FG to get the Saints back on track. With the Saints high powered offence, expect his scoring opportunities to continue.
Monday Night Football features the team who has been one of the benchmarks of the league in recent times against an up and coming Dolphins with a point to prove. Here are a few key players to watch is this division battle:
Aaron Hernandez – Has come out of nowhere, and leads the team (incl Moss) in receiving yards.
The Law Firm – BGE has been thrust into the starting line-up. Expect him to deliver.
Wes Welker – 18 receptions thus far (leads team). Is Tom’s go to guy as he looks to move the chains through the air.
Dolphins Defence – Stingy defence over the first three games. Tough test, but boy would it be a statement.
Ronnie Brown – 200 yards rushing through first three games. Enjoys MNF.
Brandon Marshall – Has been in red-hot form after coming across from the Broncos (22 receptions).
