Due to some of our other writers having a full load of responsibilities this week, the best FFB advice on the web is coming a bit late, and will be a tad bit shorter than usual. Because of this, if you have any questions you need answers for, feel free to leave them in the comment box and we will get back to them as quickly as possible. Brent and Seth will be your advisors this week. Take our thoughts, and go forward being successful this week.
Brent Mullis- Chad Henne
This has more to do with my faith in Henne than it does the defense he is playing. If you don’t have a QB that is a lock for 20+ points you must start this guy. In his last two starts Henne has a combined 668 yards and four TDs. He also has four INTs, but with the other numbers he is putting up that won’t hurt you too much. Add this to the fact Green Bay only has four INTs on the year, and you can throw out the turn over worries. I’m looking at 250 yards, 2 TDs, and 1 INT for Henne this weekend, which is starter worthy in any league you play in.
Seth Cox- Joe Flacco
I will be in this boat with any of you that follow my lead. I have Flacco and am hoping for a huge week in this one and really, expecting it because of the piss poor New England Patriots defense.
Flacco has a plethora of weapons to choose from now, and with the Pats incredibly bad defensive backs if you are one of the 98% of people that own Flacco in a league, then you need to start him.
Brent Mullis- Tony Romo
Romo is the model of inconsistency, and he is going up against the 6th ranked pass defense in the NFL. The Vikings have yet to allow big numbers to the opposing QB, and I see much of the same in week 6. Even with out that great defense, this is a huge game, and we all know what happens to the cowboys in huge games.
Seth Cox- Calvin Johnson
The Giants defense has been putting the hurt on opposing offenses lately, and I don’t see that stopping this week.
The Lions offense is predicated on CJ being able to get going in the passing game, and with the Giants defensive front seven bearing down on Shaun Hill this weekend I don’t see anyway Calvin Johnson is productive.
Brent Mullis- Ryan Torain
Torain has emerged as the top ball carrier for the Redskins, and I’d be willing to bet he has a great week against the Colts. Indianapolis has the 28th ranked rush defense in the NFL, giving up 113 yards against the Chiefs, 174 against Jacksonville, 120 to the Giants, and 257 against Houston. My money is on Ryan Torain having a break out game this week. He is not a must start, but he is definitely worth starting in deeper leagues. Expect 80 yards and 1 TD out of this young bruiser.
Seth Cox- Torain
This is just too good of a play to not say twice. I had been working my ass off to get him but was unable to and now have to go with Brandon Jacobs as my second back this week.
If you can get Torain, which he is still available in many leagues, jump on him.
Brent Mullis- Brandon Lloyd
He’s going up against the Jets. What else needs to be said. He won’t even have 10 fantasy points in a PPR league.
There you have it. When not picking for or against Ravens players, he has a pretty solid record. Keep that in mind when making your roster moves, and good luck in your upcoming game.
Seth Cox- Mike Tolbert
The Rams defense has been doing an okay job of stopping the run, but more importantly, they have only given up 1 rushing touchdown the entire season. That won’t change in the this game as the pass happy Chargers look to exploit the Rams pass defense.
Even if the bowling ball continues to produce yards, he won’t be scoring many points in this game.
