As you head into the second half of the season you should be think about the upcoming fantasy playoffs. If you are in great position – records of 7-1, 6-22, etc – you might want to look over the schedule for your players during your leagues playoffs to get a feel for who has good match-ups and who doesn’t. If you are still battling it out to make the playoffs – records of 4-4, 3-5 etc – keep pluggin along and keep improving your roster.
No matter where you are at, it is a good idea for you to look over this list and see if there are any players that you can use to improve your team.
May be available now…
Chad Pennington QB (MIA) - Two 300 yard performances and an upcoming schedule that includes the Denver and Seattle pass defenses makes him a solid QB2 and a great QB1 spot start. Give him a look if you are in need in the next few weeks.
Matt Ryan QB (ATL) – He’s been on this list for three weeks now. It is pretty obvious that he is unlike any other rookie QB since maybe Dan Marino. If he can do 277 and 2 touchdowns against the Eagles, Oakland, New Orleans and Denver – his next three opponents – shouldn’t be a problem. He should be on someones team, why not yours?
Pierre Thomas / Aaron Stecker RB (NO) – With Reggie Bush out for a few weeks and Deuce facing a possible suspension for juicing it up, these guys will provide some decent fantasy production. I would be all over Pierre but he didn’t really show much earlier in the season when he had a chance. That said, he does have the most upside of the two. Stecker is my choice in a PPR leagues. He had 5 catches for 27 versus the Bolts.
